Iran Releases Photos Of Missile Attack - They Are Actually From 2003
Shortly after Iran launched missiles into Iraq, Iranian propaganda network Etemad Online shared a photo of the “aftermath” of the attack while attempting to claim victory for Iran.
Just one little problem… The photo was taken in 2003.
Many people in the United States have fallen for the Iranian propaganda including far-left news network MSNBC.
MSNBC shared with their viewers on Tuesday evening Iranian propaganda stating that there were mass American casualties after Iran fired missiles at Iraqi military bases that were housing American soldiers.
NBC News’ Ali Arouzi joined Chris Matthews and stated that over 30 American troops had been killed in the strikes while citing the Iranian propaganda. It was later discovered that no Americans were killed.
“Iran state media is claiming that 30 U.S. soldiers have been killed in this attack,” Arouzi said on MSNBC.
“This is not confirmed, this is just coming from Iranian media, but we have just stepped over the precipice, Chris. We have entered a very unpredictable time,” he continued. “We have to see what the response is going to be from the United States, but this is undoubtedly the most serious moment between Iran and America in the last 40 years. It’s very, very tense here.”
“We’re just getting reports here that Iran has deployed its entire air force,” Arouzi said. “They are saying that if they are retaliated against (for) these attacks, they will launch attacks against the Emirates and Dubai.”
On Wednesday morning, President Trump debunked MSNBC’s claims and confirmed that no Americans were harmed.
“I’m pleased to inform you, the American people should be extremely grateful and happy. No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties,” the president started. “Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.”
The president continued by sending the following message to Iran: “Our missiles are big, powerful, accurate, lethal and fast. under construction are many hypersonic missiles. The fact that we have this great military and equipment, however, does not mean we have to use it. We do not want to use it. American strength, both military and economic, is the best deterrent.”
President Trump also released a statement last night, stating that “All is well!”
“All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning,” he tweeted.
