Oh yes what a show of strength!

Apparently NATO has been neutralized with hysterical fits of laughter! :lol:

I have been watching this story, too, but so far this comment has only been attributed to 'two unnamed American officials', and both the Iranians and Russians are denying it. I am not saying it isn't true, but I am looking for some kind of independent confirmation before I become fully convinced. However, it does cast doubt on Russian claims to be aiming at specific targets in Syria. There are reports on Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently of indiscriminate bombing of the city with mainly innocent citizens suffering.

They would deny it because it is incredibly embarrassing if true.

NATO is able to track missile trajectories so they should know where they hit.

If this keeps on happening, of course, Iran might get a bit cross.

Well it looks like there won't be anymore cruise missile launches as a "show of strength". They won't be doing that until they sort the "technical issues" so they don't make complete dorks of themselves. :lol:

There are reports within Iran from eyewitnesses claiming to see the missiles fall, some not too far from populated areas. Iran of course has officially denied everything, :lol:

The following news report in Azeri supposedly shows the damage caused by one of the Russian missiles to a village in the Azeri-speaking region of Iran. There are pictures. Drat! It is Azeri in the Arabic script. If it had been in the Roman or Cyrillic scripts, I would have been able to make sense of it.

A source at the Iranian Defense Ministry told Sputnik that it has not received any report indicating the crash of the Russian missiles on Iranian territories, describing the allegations as "psychological war".

the US propaganda machine is working in overdrive. What? is the US going to go and save Iran now?

Not only is this propaganda junk but you’re also late with it by 24 hours which makes you even more stupid because at least you had that much extra time to see the many articles telling you it's junk.

In fact one American idiot had even gone as far as claiming that the missiles had strayed and hit a hospital in Afghanistan! Thinking that he had hit two birds with one stone, a friend had to remind him that the two incidents were a day apart! That's how daft Americans are!

Still though, you’re one of the stupidest people I’ve ever met… :?
