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.
Now look at the Royal Australian Navys picture below - 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 . We were told at the time the Torrens was deliberately sunk by a torpedo fired by one of our own submarines, the HMAS Farncomb.
Should we now think that we were in fact attacked by Hezbollah - or is this just the latest proof that Hezbollah will lie and lie again for propaganda gain?
what is something-class? is it named after the first "ship" of that design?
This is more than rich. Yet all the libs are caliming Israel and the US are losing becasue they believe and want to believe all the enemy propaganda.
Headline of thread could have been phrased a little more clearly.
It is often the name of the first ship (the 'lead ship') of a particular design, but not always. In the case of the River-class, the six ships of the class were named after major Australian rivers - the city of Adelaide, capital of the state of South Australia lies on the River Torrens.
That was fake! :) LOL Good one
The river Torrens isn't much of a river. Down here we'd call it a creek, but then, Aussies probably think our deserts are just big sand boxes!
Here is a lonk to the Reuters photo by Hajj:
Liar, liar, pants on fire.
Call Photo Reuter, that's the name, and away goes truth right down the drain. Photo Reuter!
