... the site, which is buried deep under a mountain and immune not only to airstrikes but to most bunker-buster bombs.

The "site" may be "immune" to airstrikes and bunker-busters, but the entrances and ventilation systems sure aren't.

“... but the entrances and ventilation systems sure aren’t.”

Stupid Qom Propane Delivery man not only got the ADDRESS wrong, he also connected the hose from the tanker truck to the incorrect pipe!

Bummer when that happens!

Do the Israelis know because the explosion is the work of Mossad?

I for one sure hope so! If it was the work of Mossad we can all rest assured that it'll be a long time before Iran rebuilds/recovers their nuclear capabilities.

Why doesn’t somebody look up the Earthquake activity for the DAY in question and see if there seemed to be some significant ‘activity’ in that area, that day ???

There was no earthquake activity on the day in question anywhere near Fordow.

The forward portion of the Hiroshima weapon (L11)—the part that the barrel was screwed into, and called the anvil—had already been used twice in drop tests. They just dug it up and put a fresh coat of paint on it. Now that’s reliable...

And from the article an official report from the local Governor:

Report: Mysterious blast in Iran's Isfahan damaged key nuclear site

By Yossi Melman | Nov.30, 2011 | 11:13 AM

*********************************************EXCERPT************************************

At first, Iranian officials denied the reports, with the governor of Isfahan later alleging that the blast was caused by an accident that had occurred during a nearby military drill.

It’d be like an NFL plane going down with an entire team...taking several years for them to rebuild.

Each of the other teams would be required to participate in some kind of draft/lottery, but I don't think that would work for Iran.

The Davy Crockett was fired from a jeep mounted recoiless rifle and weighed around 50 pounds....and they could have made them much smaller.....and that was over half a century ago.

How small could nukes be now?

hold on....were’d I put that one....I swear I left it on this key chain.

I'm wondering if it isn't a convenient way to block further inspections. A sort-of the-dog-ate-my-homework thing, but more like "there was a horrible accident" "we're sorry, but the nuclear material is now forever buried". "drat the luck". "it was all for peaceable purposes, we were not trying to make a bomb", "so sorry, but no one can examine the materials now", etc...
