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.

Man, it’s fixing to be Sept 6, 2007 all over again. Trying to think who all was on my ping list.. 1CounterMortar, but he’s not around to see this one, sad.

Who were all of us that followed that raid that never happened?

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.
