The coming conflict with Iran Part 1, Mysterious explosions near Teheran
Island Turtle ^ | February 23, 2012 | Corky Boyd

Island Turtle will cover Iran’s nuclear missand in several installments. It will present information and satellite imagery about Iran’s missile manufacturing facilities, test areas and nuclear development sites. It will show an underground site, part of a vast military storage area, built into a side of a mountain that has yet to be reported by the media. It will also report on mysterious explosions and offer guidance on what happened and who is likely behind it. You will be surprised. The intent is to help Turtle readers follow news events in Iran intelligently when and if they happen, with locations, coordinates and background facts.

Subject: Explosion at Shahab-3 missile site November 12, 2011

On Saturday November 12, in the middle of the day Teheran was shaken by two massive explosions, followed by smaller ones. Western press reports said windows were broken in Teheran from the blasts 28 miles (45 km) away. The first report had 27 killed, including Revolutionary Guard’s Major General Hassan Moghadam, the head of Iran’s missile programs. Later ones lowered that to 17 Guards, including General Moghadam. There was speculation from Israeli sources that 10 North Koreans died also, though that was never confirmed. The Iranian state controlled press initially blamed it on an accident of transferring munitions at an ammunition storage area. Eventually that changed to two Guard run military facilities several kilometers apart that had accidental explosions. Press speculation, especially in Israel, claimed it was foreign sabotage. Neither is correct.

On November 28, the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) published satellite imagery...It showed utter devastation of the complex. Every building suffered major damage and one simply ceased to exist...It could not come from sabotage or an accident. It was too widespread. It could only have come from the air.

I don't believe anything that comes from an island turtle, because their stuck on islands, and they're turtles.

They spend most of their time hunkered down in their burrows.

Good analysis at the link. It does appear to be multiple air strikes. No wonder Iran went frantic about seizing our drone. It needed to be retired by them after accomplishing much dirty work for us. No doubt Russia and/or China helped them in that effort.. Probably Russia.
