    Report of blast at Iran nuke facility unconfirmed

    A report claiming that a mysterious blast rocked the Fordow uranium enrichment facility in Iran last week made headlines in Israel on Sunday, but remained unverified.

    Has Israel struck?

    Will this set back their weapons program enough?

    Interesting. This bears watching. Lots of potential ramifications.

    Agreed, I wonder if Israel was behind it, or us.....

    If I were any sort of leader in any nation that has publicly stated opposition to Israel, I would watch my back. Those guys are bold. I have to give them that. Even if they didn't do this, they still have a great rep of being able to get to someone anywhere they please. See the Dubai assassination a few years back.

    My guess is that somebody screwed up trying to build a warhead or something. I don't think Israel has anything conventional even remotely capable of taking out a deep bunker unless there was a serious design flaw with a straight down shaft and got lucky.

    Um...

    I do not wish to see nuclear weapons in the hands of the Iranian Government...

    But did anyone read the first two sections of the article...

    A report claiming that a mysterious blast rocked the Fordow uranium enrichment facility in Iran last week made headlines in Israel on Sunday, but remained unverified.

    According to the report, penned by former Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Reza Kahlili, for the WND.com website, the explosion “destroyed much of the installation and trapped about 240 personnel deep underground.”
    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...

    In reading some of the related articles, the bet seems to be on sabotage....Very cool....James Bond stuff.

    Assuming the report is accurate, Israel would be the odds on favorite. The big question would be wether we had prior knowledge, or if they did not let us know in advance.

    That would be an excellent question, and one that would highlight whether or not they still trust us.
