BREAKING: Iranian scientist killed in bomb attack
bbc.co ^ | 11 January 2012 Last updated at 04:25 ET | BBC

Posted on 01/11/2012 2:18:56 AM PST by F15Eagle

A university lecturer and nuclear scientist has been killed in a car explosion in north Tehran, reports say.

Iranian media sources named the casualty as Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, an academic who also worked at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.

The blast happened when a motorcyclist stuck a magnetic bomb on the car, said Iran's semi-official Fars news agency.

Several Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated in recent years, with Iran blaming Israel and the US.

Both countries deny the accusations.

Local sources said Wednesday's blast took place at a faculty of Iran's Allameh Tabatai university.

Two others were reportedly also injured in the blast, which took place near Gol Nabi Street, in the north of the capital.

Whatever slows down the crazy mullahs who are trying to get a mini-Armageddon going in the Middle East is probably a good thing.

this is a better solution to this problem than dropping a bomb in iran, going to war or sanction imho. This is target killing of those who could build the nuclear bomb

I’m betting this is what happens to Iranian nuke scientists who the bosses think are about to defect.

Blowing up a handful of these guys is not going to slow anything down.

I would not want to be an Iranian scientist (Nuclear, Rocket, Chemistry, etc). Think of how paranoid they must be! I bet that increases the likelihood of them becoming Israeli/US agents too!

Well it sure is going to pressure those remaining..and any who consider being "appointed" to the task might very well be figuring how they can get out of dodge if enough of them go down as this.

Gee, I wonder who could have done this?

Four scientists involved in Iran’s nuclear programm have been killed in the last two years.

The Iranians need OHSA to come in and investigate these work place accidents.

There is no evidence of Israeli involvement

There are others who are threatened as much or worse than Israel.

MG Walter von Doernberg, the head of the rocket research facility at Peenemunde, said the worst effect of the bombing raids on Peenemunde wasn’t the loss of facilities, but the loss of skilled personnel. If we want to stop Iran, we have to kill people. No more raids on empty office buildings at 2:00 AM on Friday morning. We need to attack a crowded office complex at 8:46:30 AM on a Tuesday.

Taking out key people is a proven tactic. Israel has used this tactic for decades.

Even IF the knowledge these people have can be replaced, taking them out of the organization causes disruption. Its a good thing.

The comments on this thread are really annoying.

There is no reason to suspect Israel any more than the Iranians themselves, or any of the Arabian peninsula intelligence services as the actors...

The Rev Guards can absolutely not afford to be discovered if they are offing scientists/engineers who are leaking/defecting/spying for outside forces.
