TEHRAN, Iran (AP) A Revolutionary Guard commander killed in an explosion at an ammunition depot west of Tehran was a key figure in Iran's missile program, the elite military force said in a statement Sunday.

Gen. Hasan Moghaddam was killed together with 16 other Guard members Saturday at a military site outside Bidganeh village, 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Tehran. The Guard said the accidental explosion occurred while military personnel were transporting munitions.

The problem is that there probably are replacements. These targeted assasinations and the Stuxnet virus can slow things down, but not change the eventual outcome. To do that, you’ve got to lay waste to big facilities.

Mossad has terminated so many of their top tech people it’s a wonder they have any kind of capable military at all.

There is an anti-government group that has been quite effective. I can't remember if they were Kurds or what.

Basically Israel liquified a reactor in Syria the Russians, NORKs and Iran had been working on, and shipping fissile material to. They used a border flight up Iraq, then left over Turkey, then back to base.

It happened real quick and everybody refused to acknowledge it for a long time. Israel demonstrated the new anti-missile systems Russia’d sold all the a$$holes as complete junk.

As I recall, this is the second major accident at Iranian ammunition facilities. Note to Mr. Ahmadinejad: If your supposed best and brightest guys botch the handling of conventional weapons and the result is calamities like this, you might want to reconsider such accidents at your nuclear storage facilities.

Just a thought, Mammoud. Iran may go down in history as the first nation state to have its nuclear stockpile detonate before it can be used. Hmmmm.

On July 18, 2007 about 15 nuke scientists (NK, Russian, Syrian) had a similar oops while trying to mount bioWMD on a missile. When your guys start vaporizing, the end is near. Like weeks near.

Last chance to defect, you guys sticking it out with Mahmood.

There not given much of a chance over there. If only Obama had supported the Persian Uprising early in his presidency, thinks might have worked out differently. And if only GWB would have allowed all the WMD evidence to get past the security clearance issues. Oh well. Does anyone now actually still think Sadam did not want WMD ? He had to possess them just to counter the decades long Iranian program.

Incoming sad news...for them

Source: Hundreds of N. Korean nuclear and missile experts working in Iran

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2806970/posts

SEOUL, Nov. 13 (Yonhap) — Hundreds of North Korean nuclear and missile experts have been collaborating with their Iranian counterparts in more than 10 locations across the Islamic state, a diplomatic source said Sunday.

The revelation lends credence to long-held suspicions that North Korea was helping Iran with a secret nuclear and missile program.

This probably yields 5 targets, based on previous math.

I’m sure these roaches are running, but they can’t hide.

I was watching Al Jazerra last night, and apparently Iran is suffering a new virus called DuDu. I wonder if they know that means they are now in deep shxx. I tried to pull up the Google continuation on the story, but nothing came up but a title and a blank page.

[snip] Apparently, the gathering together of the seven or so very senior Sepah/IRGC officers who were killed in the explosion was to participate in a weapons demonstration. [/snip]
