The U.S. State Department and CNN both published agitprop videos dissing Iranian military might. The clip made by CNN Arabic compared the American air force to the Iranian air force (see translation below).

The following chart is a quick translation of the clip:

The State Department Arabic-language division also released agitprop videos clips dissing Iranian military might. The clip below shows how Iran is deceiving the world, showing off various military equipment as if the equipment is new, state-of-the-art Iranian inventions.

For example, the clip shows a fighter jet which Iran claims to have newly manufactured. Yet, in reality, it turned out to be an American F-5, which was originally designed in the late 1950s. Another photo shows Iran unveiling a “new” fighter jet in 2013. This one turned out to be a toy that never flew. Yet another photo shows a helicopter Iran supposedly manufactured in 2010. The helicopter was really an America Cobra with a few modifications. The Cobra was invented in 1967.

In a second clip (see below), the State Department showed how Iran claimed that it manufactured an air defense system to target missiles and drones. The system turned out to be the Austrian Sky Guard system that many armed forces in the world possess.

In other news, President Trump ordered 1,500 more troops to the Middle East to serve “mostly in a protective capacity” amid rising tension with Iran.

America suspects two Iranian-backed Shiite militias operating in Iraq were responsible for the rocket attack on the Green Zone in Baghdad a week ago on May 19, 2019. The American embassy in Iraq is located in the Green Zone, previously considered to be a highly secure area.

The militias are the Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (the Martyrs Battalion), which  is known to be funded  by Iran, and the Kata’ib al-Imam Ali (the Imam Ali Battalions), which is believed to be an Iranian proxy group.
