    Re: Report of blast at Iran nuke facility unconfirmed

    Everything I have read indicates that the US promised Israel that we would take out their facilities if it got to that point to stop Israel from striking a couple years ago before these deep bunkers were brought online. Israel does not have the capabilities to take out deep bunkers by air, and it would take US help for them to strike that far from home by air anyway. Whatever happened, happened in that bunker IMHO.

    Yeah... gonna need to see this from a mainstream source.

    By the way...

    Mysterious blast...

    Are the writers implying He Who Must Not Be Named is involved...
    Well, haarerz agrees with your skepticism....

    Who spread reports of an 'explosion' at Iran's Fordow nuclear plant and why? - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    I too, am trying to find more mainstream sourcing.....If none, then I will have to conclude that we will just have to wait and see.

    Haaretz isn't going to do it.

    Not too keen on the people trapped underground, wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

    Be glad if the Iranian nuclear program was damaged...

    Sources are just too flimzy for me mate.

    Need definitive proof.

    One guy telling World Net Daily just isn't going to cut it.

    Why so confrontational? I am actually agreeing with you Jet....Gheeze, is it just your first reaction when you see a post of mine?

    Institute for Science and International Security › ISIS Reports › Iran › Day after Alleged Sabotage at Fordow: Hardly the Expected Emergency Response


    visible exterior signs of damage, ISIS observed no intensified activity in the form of emergency or cleanup vehicles that one would expect to see around the site in the wake of an incident of this magnitude (figure 1). The lack of clarity at very high magnification does leave some doubt on whether a set of three white marks near one of the entrances of the southernmost tunnel could indeed be three vehicles. However, an emergency response would be expected to have been prompt and to have involved many more vehicles







    I looks like WND had some faulty information

    The last thing heard from that facility was "What does this big red button do?".
