Another blast rocks Iran


On Monday, a second nuclear facility, this one outside of Isfahan, had an “accident”. The facility converts yellowcake into uranium hexafluoride gas, which is then transferred to Iran’s nuclear facilities in Natanz and Qom for further refining into fissionable material.

The original article appeared in the Times of London, you can read the article in the Australian without needing the Times subscription. They say that satellite photos of Isfahan clearly show “billowing smoke and destruction.” I missed this earlier, but the first incident killed General Hassan Moghaddam, the head of the Iranian missile defence program.

**whispers “let’s keep Israel as a friend, shall we?”

    My favorite thing about all this is that while Iran will blame the JOOOOS for just about everything under the sun, they don’t dare admit Israel was able to do this inside their country covertly. So they keep trying to claim that:
    a) nothing happened
    b) something happened, but it was intentional
    c) something happened, but it was a normal everyday accident
    or
    d) SHUT YOUR HOLE, YOU!!!

    I love it.

  2. Looks like Mossad is taking advice from Scott Adams:

    “There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives.”

    • My favorite quote from The Australian article:

      On Monday, Dan Meridor. the Israeli Intelligence Minister, said: “There are countries who impose economic sanctions and there are countries who act in other ways in dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat.”
