Iranian Fauxtography

Iran Caught with Pants down, Bloggers to blame.

Thats right Ladies and Gentleman... Hezboallah/Reuters isn't the Only one with a cracked version of Photoshop. (Don't ask me how I know it's cracked, it just is.).  It seems the Iranian's are trying to mock American reports of Iranian Arms in the hands of Insurgents in Iraq.

Here was the Report from the Iranian News Agency:

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Following a Saturday report about the use of US manufactured weapons in the recent terrorist operations in Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan, a security official provided FNA with a photograph of the said weaponry.

You can also check out the SWF file of how this was done: Here

Hopefully Photobucket won't erase that, Updates to follow if so.

The 7-62 ammunition shown is the Standard NATO
Cartridge, produced in many countries including Canada. Iranian Military have many US made weapons
and munitions and have had for years, plus that which they captured from the Iragi's or supplied by Russia and China - I doubt the insurgents who attacked them used NATO weapons or Munitions -
\Standard Russian and Chinese Made Kalishnakov's
more likely - millions of those around. I think these atacks will continue for some time. MacLeod
