Iran Unveils Drone that Can Reach Israel – or Is It Photoshop?

Never underestimate Iran’s technology. Never underestimate Iran’s capability to lie. It claims it has a drone that can reach Israel. And if is true, an expert suggests to The Jewish Press, “So what?

Interesting, isn’t it? Iran mass produced combat drones in 2011 and announced two years later it has a new suicide drone and then a month later says it has made a drone that can reach Israel.

But back in 2009, the regime declared, “Iran inaugurated the production line of two home-made Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with bombing and reconnaissance capabilities.”

Significantly, it added, “The two hi-tech drones…are capable of conducting long-range reconnaissance, patrolling, assault and bombing missions with high precision.”

Long-range? If it had a drone with long-range capabilities in 2009, then what did it announce today? Or did the Propaganda Minister bring out the wrong press release?

There is no intent here to make fun of Iran’s capability. It has real weapons that can do real damage.

But how much can be believed?

Did you know that while Iran is buckling under sanctions and still is able to produce submarines, suicide drones, a drone that can reach Israel, supposed long-range missiles that appear to be medium-range missiles, the Islamic Republic also has produced cures for cancer and generic medicine for muscular sclerosis?

In July 2011, Farce Fars stated that Iran will produce a cancer drug domestically along with medicines used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, precluding the need to import the medicines.

The official media also claimed that Iranian scientists managed to produce a medical hormone to cure breast cancer.

Press TV, another branch of the Propaganda Ministry, reported  two years ago , “Four hi-tech nanotechnology laboratory tools and a nano-medicine were unveiled during a Monday ceremony in Tehran.”

So how real is the drone? It could be real.

It also could be a turkey for Thanksgiving.

  1. I love Israel and stand with them. May God bless and fight their battles.

  2. Just blow the crap out of them and get it over with.

  3. Dave Jones says:

    ALWAYS REMEMBER…ITS VERY EASY TO TELL WHEN iran IS LYING…..THEIR MOUTH WILL BE MOVING!!!!!

  4. Gil Gilman says:

    I can only quibble with one thing in this article, the notion of Islamic peace. You and I know that will never happen until they have annihilated each other…then it will be just plain old peace…though that will never happen because there are plenty of other knuckleheads out there, leading other nuclear armed entities.

  5. Ann Kennedy says:

    The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob watches over Israel. He could defeat such a drone if it actually exists.

  6. Almighty God have mercy on Israel – Your chosen people, I pray.
