Another week, another explosion at or near an Iranian military installation (or is it a nuclear research facility?). As usual, the regime doesnt know what to say. The mullahcracy is so intensely divided that different spokesmen from different ministries/news outlets/cults/mafias put out different versions. There was an explosion, or at least the sound of an explosion. This goes out on the wires. Then, no, there was no explosion, it was just the sound of our fierce military training. Then again, yes, there was something, but not to worry, just go home and shut up. And so it goes in the Islamic Republic of Iran, as our president so loves to call his intended international partners.
Ive been reporting for many months about the ongoing sabotage of pipelines, refineries, military sites, Revolutionary Guards aircraft and trains, and groups of regime thugs. and have received the usual cold shoulder from publications of record, which is to say silent sneers. But the tempo of attacks, most notably the monster blast a week ago that vaporized General Moghaddam and his foreign visitors (at least some of whom had taken the shuttle from Pyongyang to be with him on what they wrongly expected would be a happy day) led the Washington Posts man in Tehran, Thomas Erdbrink, to note the phenomenon in a useful story entitled Mysterious Explosions Pose Dilemma for Iranian leaders. He gives us a pretty good rundown of the explosions, and, living as he does in Tehran, gives ample space to regime explanations such as bad welding, western sanctions, and so forth. Given the number of foreign journalists who have come to a bad end in Iran, youd do the same.

I do agree with the author that Obama probably has 0 to do with what is happening there now. If anything, it is an Israeli led sabotage campaign.
I think they should give their testing team smaller hammers
Is there any real doubt?
Of course some of it could be simple accidents.
The Middle East knows zero is a one-termer. Perry is vehemently aligned with Israel. Do the reporting math. It didn’t happen.
What he said.
-——there was no explosion———
This is herd journalism taken to the extreme. The Iranian official did not say there was no explosion as is noted in many places and here above, what he actually said was there was no “government report of an explosion”.
The Kurds have a big beef with the current leaders of Iran. The Saudis are quite fearful of Iranian actions. Iran has been killing officers that served under Sudan Hussein. The Stuxnet virus is said to be active. Then of course there is Israel. Take your pick.
I disagree with the author a little bit. It seems to me a combination of internal sabotage and probably some stuxnet self destruct viruses are responsible for the mullahs infrastructure misfortunes as of late.
I agree. And probably Stuxnet 2.0 by now.
How do you say, "What's up doc?" in Farsi?
It is the hand of Allah!
I hope so! They should screw with them every chance they get.
&چه تا DOC است؟
Yeah, accidents. That is what it is, accidents. They happen all the time don’t they?
Isn’t this just the coolest thing?
Am Israel Chai! The people of Israel live....
Actually, "Son of Stuxnet" has been detected.
Or Shin Bet striking before Obama gets re-elected and Egypt goes Islamicist and thus could be pincered on all sides into sitting by while Iran goes nuclear.
It was likely the sound of a laser from a space robot craft orbiting earth for over 200 days, charging it’s capacitors and cooling down for the superconductive pulse.
That is an interesting thought, but I think the spacecraft we have up there is a little too small. Never say never though, would be nice if the X-37B had such capabilities:)
There was no explosion, it was just the sound of our fierce military training...
