Let’s hope the speculation proves to be correct.

>>>...speculation that Tehran’s military and atomic sites are under attack

Or, the tinfoil hatters to speculate Iran is blowing their own stuff up to blame Israel, and use these events to take action to “retaliate”...

So Israel is blowing up Iranian nuclear plants and Iran is just sitting there taking it?

***A second Iranian nuclear facility has exploded, as diplomatic tensions rise between the West and Tehran.***

Strange. There was no mention of it from ABC News tonight. No mention of diplomatic problems between Britain and Iran. No report on the stock market. No report on the digging under the White House.

Dianne Sawyer’s report mentioned frightening miniscule amounts of arsenic in juice , a report on dolphins. a shark, Kids and that was about it. She also reported as if she was speaking to a 4th grade audience.

Maybe that is why I hate the MSM news reports.

Esfahan is where I was born. It is an amazingly beautiful city in the heart of Iran and I ache to think what is happening over there. Damn the mullahs to eternal Hell for what they are doing to that country.

Hopefully the damage was confined to only the facility.

Internecine warfare is the most likely scenario.

Multiple factions within Iran are at odds with each other.

The blast came two weeks after Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Gen. Hasan Tehrani Moghaddam and 20 other IRGC members were killed in a massive explosion at a base near the village of Bidganeh, southwest of Tehran.
