Five Russian scientists who died in a plane crash on Tuesday had been helping Iran with nuclear secrets, it has been revealed.

They were among 45 killed when the plane's lights failed in heavy fog and careered into a motorway before bursting into flames - leading conspiracy theorists to believe it was a deliberate plot to kill the nuclear experts.

Russian security sources confirmed that the dead scientists worked at the controversial Bushehr nuclear plant on the Iranian Persian Gulf.

Nothing compared to what will happen when Iran decides to go all-out against Israel.

The big one is yet to come. That will be a stark day over there.

Yeah I believe the Ezek 38 war will occur prior to Armageddon, though it stars with Israel “at peace”.

And the end result looks a lot like Armageddon in Ezekiel 39.

Not happy news but we all have no illusions what muzzie terrorists will do with nukes in their hands.

And Pakistan is proving to be duplicitous at best.

Yikes.

It doesn’t have to be a conspiracy... sometimes stuff just happens that way. It would be fun to think that we really were that good, though.

I don’t weep for them. Their handiwork will one day lead to the deaths of thousands, if not millions.

Good riddance.

"Those Mossad guys are awesome."

I didn't think it was their style to take out 40 innocent people to get the five they actually wanted. I understand the stakes they're facing, but I thought the Mossad was a little more...uh...professional than this.

As a consequence, all Soviet-era airliners flying in Russia will be withdrawn from service. The accident rate of these deathtraps becoming unacceptable.

Was there any international investigation regarding their involvement helping Iran? Or the Stuxnet virus?

The Iranian people hate Ahmadinijad and his deadly plans. If this was not an accident, one can assume that the Iraqi people were behind it.

“the plane’s lights failed in heavy fog”

I thought it was the runway’s lights that failed in the fog?

“I thought it was the runway’s lights that failed in the fog?”

Correct. What I do not understand is if the pilot had the runway lights (Actually the rabbit lights that lead to the runway) he should have executed a missed approach the moment they went out.

You, me and every other pilot in the world knows that but the media chooses not to bring the subject forth for discussion. So, please sit down.

Contrast this with the New York Post article re: 44 killed in plane crash in northwest Russia

The plane was carrying 52 people, including nine crew members, Semyonova said. Russian news agencies said Russian Premier League soccer referee Vladimir Pettay and a Swedish citizen were among the victims.

But, no mention of five Soviet Nuclear Scientists? Hmmmm. I find that a bit curious. Don't you?

Regards,

TS

No, being the UK they use British terminology and the verb “career” in British English means to skid out of control, pretty similar to the US English word “careen” as it happens.

Thanks. We probably made the word 'careen' up anyway. What do the Brits use for the word 'career'?

Sometimes, during a fog, one can actually see better with the lights off.

“Career” but it’s used as a noun not a verb.
