Iranís uranium city explodes
Charleston (WV) Daily Mail ^ | November 29, 2011 | Don Surber

Posted on 11/29/2011 5:30:07 PM PST by Mustang Driver

Seems an explosion rocked Iranian city Isfahan that houses that nation’s uranium conversion facility on Monday. Hmm. Big hmm. Capitalized, italicized and boldfaced HMM.

From the New York Daily News: “The government of Isfahan denied reports that the explosion was linked to the nuclear site, saying it was part of a military drill north of the city.”

That excuse is so weak that I think Baghdad Bob either moved to Iran or has a cousin Tehran Terry.

From the New York Daily News: “One of the first reports of the blast came from Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency, according to the Guardian. The report was later removed from the agency’s website. Residents in Isfahan called authorities after hearing the loud blast, which shook the windows of homes in the area, according to media reports. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said American officials knew little about the explosion.”

Sounds Mossad-ian. Anyway, the Scorekeeper would give it a GOOD and not ask any questions.

Hat tip: Lucianne. The video is Algerian rocker Rachid Taha singing the Clash’s classic “Rock the Casbah.” Way better.

Coincidentally, the little squiggle lines look suspiciously like, "Merry Christmas!"

I just looked and didn't see anything.

Must be a case of "move along, nothing to see here".

BagdadBob has not moved to Iran. This was a monumental screw-up.

On one hand Mossad. One the other hand it may have been a major accident, caused by some “political officer” (whatever they call the equivalent in Iran, ok, mullah would do fine) demanding that an impossible deadline be met. Much like what happened to Marshal Mitrofan Nedelin, commander of the USSR Strategic Rocket Forces. He was killed during the test of an R-8 ICBM - demanded that safety procedures be bypassed.

Either that, or a successful mission sortie.

Psalm 83

13 O my God, make them like the [h]whirling dust,
Like chaff before the wind.
14 Like fire that burns the forest
And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,
15 So pursue them with Your tempest
And terrify them with Your storm.
16 Fill their faces with dishonor,
That they may seek Your name, O LORD.
17 Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever,
And let them be humiliated and perish,
18 That they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD,
Are the Most High over all the earth.

I saw a pair of bright satellites flying in tandem a few years ago (as bright as the Shuttle). I couldn’t find them on any of the tracking sites. If we don’t already have a suborbital bomber we should get one. We already fly B2’s and B1’s on nonstop missions from the US to points in the Middle East.

I'm sure we have something....

In fact I would think building a bomb that would be able to first surivie re-entry then leave no country linkable evidence after detonation would be more technically difficult than building an orbitial bomber.

What surprises me is that Obama would apparently use susch a thing against Iran. I wonder if this was Great Brittain, or even Isreal ?...

The Iranian “mishap” a couple of weeks ago turned out to be multiple exploded buildings. That was either smart bombs (perhaps from something like the Global Hawk) or cruise missiles. This week’s “mishap” we don’t know what was hit yet.
