BUSTED! Official Iranian Rocket Shot Is Really American Missile!
Later… on Sunday the regime admitted that it was not really a space rocket.
An article from Iranian Bazteb News explained that the rocket launched on Saturday was actually a below-orbit satellite which goes above balloons but below satellites.
What made this Iranian space story humerous was that Bazteb News posted pictures of American and Australian rockets in their article about an Iranian below-orbit rocket!

This photo is identified as the successful Iranian rocket launch in the Kayhan News on Sunday.
But, lookie here…
The rocket shot is actually from a California anti-ballistic missile test that took place back in 2004!

It looks like the regime not only stretched their space story but stretched their American rocket shot as well!
Here is the Iranian rocket picture copied and compressed using Microsoft PowerPoint!
Sorry, mullahs, your space story is running out of rocket fuel!
