Lies exposed



Recently Jakartass ran some rather pathetic attempts with "Photoshop". It would appear that certain parties have given that up altogether and just plain lie in order to get the propaganda across. The top photo is as published by Defence Industry Daily - of its sinking of the decommissioned Australian destroyer-escort HMAS Torrens off the coast of Western Australia in 1998.

The bottom photo is from http://www.moqavemat.com - "an Iran-based website run by the Hezbollah terrorist group - is running this picture (above) of what it claims is the Israeli ship it hit with a missile last month" (Andrew Bolt. )



Had a quick read of the web site as well, All I can say is I wish the Italians lots and lots of luck.

Now before the run of usual.."others do it too" comments. I don't care! Expose them as well and maybe one day there may exist some truth and balance in reporting. The more light Bloggers and ordinary people shine in dark places, the harder it is for the cockroaches and liars to hide.

Oigal,

Very good post..or should I also say expose?

Can't imagine how many people in Lebanon and the Middle-East have been hoodwinked and fed with lies all these times! When the mind is twisted, it's hard to be straightened again.

Hi Joe,

Thanks but I really cannot take any credit besides posting the pictures. The information comes from Andrew Bolt. He is a fairly conservative(?)journo in oz but is normally pretty accurate with his information (although I don't always agree with his conclusions).

But I do agree its so sad that so much hate and rubbish is taken as the truth..Did you have a look a the website... ugh

Nice one, Oigal. Given that few picked up on my exposé, I'm nowlooking for photoshopped pictures of war-wounded cats. Much more newsworthy.

Hi J,

Its a sad sign isn't it, but amazing someone thought they would get away with it.

Still cats might help people ignore what is really going on

On the lighter side, what can be done with odd looking fat men is quite interesting.

Are you some sort of Islamophobe or something?

That ain’t the same ship; it’s merely a SISTER ship of the one that the
Aus govt had sunk.

Get your facts straight for once. And you’re beginning to sound like Indonesian Matters.

Thanks for the Insult Anon been a quiet day..

Moving on..

1. A sister ship huh..kinda difficult as Israel does not have any type 42 Frigates in her order of battle (see Janes, link in the posts).

2. See that brown lump of the front deck thats where the deck gun or missles go, but Navies tend to take it off when they de-commission (but not such a sound tactical plan when sailing into hostile waters).

3. Navies tend not to draw white target lines on the side of their ships for the enemy to target, generally does not improve your survival chances..on the other hand if you are testing the new collins class submarine torpedoes by sinking a decommission ship...

4. Islamophobe... mmm Even assuming that I am taking sides rather than just highlighting a very poor attempt at propoganda..Seeing how Hezbullah states they are protecting the Lebanonese people that would make me a Muslim 59.7% (Shi'a, Sunni, Druze, Isma'ilite, Alawite or Nusayri), Christian 39% (Maronite Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Melkite Catholic, Armenian Orthodox, Syrian Catholic, Armenian Catholic, Syrian Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Chaldean, Assyrian, Copt, Protestant), other 1.3% A PHOBE...

5. Tell you what..instead of name calling ..prove the photo wrong and I will take it down and apologise.. Give me a link to some obvious dumb fakes by Israel and or others and I will link or put them up..

have nice day..and try some objectivity

Oh one last point insult Indo Matters on his site not mine, he has plenty of room and I am sure he wont mind.
