Do not insult us, infidels. We cannot be bothered to actually review images. Such is our dedication to bringing about the Great Satan's destruction.

I find that hard to believe, subby. Give me one example of a media organization with a soft spot for the status quo issuing propaganda.

Blame Reagan: he came up with the idea of "Star Wars" missile defense system. Guess the Iranians took it too literally.

Also, oblig. classic:

Gotta be fake.

Or else someone from Anonymous lives in Iran. Lived. But not anymore. Or not for very much longer.

Of course Iran is no military threat.

Please keep this in mind when the next article comes around talking about them being a threat.

Can't stop smiling about this one. This is GREAT!!

It's real. Go to the linked story, and check out the news stories from the home page. It's on page two, but it's still there.

This...this is too perfect for words.

Fark had some lengthy pro-Iran threads during the 2009 green days. The Fark logo even changed to show support.

This may be a case of an Iranian 'That's the joke'.


The image is next to an article that downplays the threat of Iranian missiles. It is quite possible that their thought process was one of this:

The West is overreacting to the threat Iran actually poses. They use things like our missile program as an excuse to enact extreme sanctions, and here you have them actually admitting that the missile program is a threat. This proves our point, Iran isn't a threat, I mean, look at how 'dangerous' our missile system is. *inserts goofy image*.

Not a threat? bullshiate when I saw all those missiles I almost died of laughter.
 
2012-05-05 06:23:44 PM
I was thinking.... No no no subby can't mean that one. Wow.

I assumed that subby meant the original 4 missile 'shop. I laughed my arse off when I saw the Jar-Jar 'shop.

This. I keep clicking over to other tabs, clicking back, and giggling like a twit. The original 'shop thread had me in stitches, but when I later GIS'd for other sites' submissions, I laughed until I couldn't see because of the tears. I've saved almost enough of 'em to warrant their own folder.

What's Amadinnerjacket's Fark Handle?

Is Fark now an Iranian propaganda unit?

Iranian intelligence trawling Fark?

Ladies and Gentlemen, Fark has hit the world stage.

He asked me not to give it away, it's one of the first rules you learn when pledging AoE.

FTFA: It's a small image but upon closer inspection, you can see that something is amis.

It seems to me that rule one of snarky news articles pointing out the shortcomings of other news agencies should be "Don't have any typos in that story".

"The image is next to an article that downplays the threat of Iranian missiles."


Those are my thoughts too. Regardless, the photo is funny as heck.

I know, it's like who let that one slip. They must have some pretty drastic flight paths if that one is supposed to hit the United States.
