There are some on YouTube that are questioning whether Iran truly fired missiles at US bases in Iraq or whether it was all a show.

It would be easy to dismiss these claims as fringe, but they might have a point. Missiles usually do create a larger blast crater, although it is possible for a crater to only be around 2 meters in width.
Here are some articles and pictures of actual missile blast craters:
