Then there will be a probable loss of major infrastructure when Israel has the jets and pilots warmed up.

Right, if the event wasn’t an Iranian test, well I guess it is now.

More likely, someone dropped a bottle. They are describing radiation poisoning not an explosion.

Exactly. Title SB changed to “event/accident”.

Remember, though, thirty yeas ago there was a small blurb in the papers about higher-than-usual radiation readings coming out of Sweden.

It was finally traced to a small town in Ukraine named Pripyat, and we know it as Chernobyl.

I remember that day, reading the paper at the bus stop...

Mossad helped that Syrian facility do some quality testing back in July ‘07 when they were trying to mount chemical warheads to missiles. Took out a bunch of Russians and Norks.

Let’s just forget that Iran is the #1 sponsor of international terrorism, and can’t be trusted with a burnt out match let alone a nuclear weapon.

Interesting if it was a nuclear test and it was a sizzle like the NORKS had a couple of years ago. Either that or someones goat ate the instructions from Bombs’rUs.

Another extract from RSOE EDIS on website ‘hisz.rsoe.hu’ [NOTICE!!! This information not confirmed!] Iranian nuclear officials are being secretive about the nature of an incident in the Iranian Isfahan nuclear plant that sent many staff members to nearby hospital emergency rooms Wednesday. The head of Iran’s Medical Emergency Agency told reporters that staff members of an Isfahan Nuclear plant “have observed some symptoms.” He stressed that all medical emergency units in Iran should be ready to “confront nuclear incidents.” “Those who have been around UCF Isfahan, have shown symptoms and are receiving treatment,” said Gholamreza Masoumi to Iranian state-run news agencies. He did not mention a specific time for the incident nor did he volunteer any details about the nature of it. “We have not yet had any incident outside nuclear designated areas,” he said. Masoumi said that the agency has been training the medical emergency unit staff on providing treatment for nuclear incidents. Masoumi told Mehr news agency that recently the Iranian government has formed a “Nuclear Emergency” task force to provide services that would be needed following nuclear incidents. Furthermore, Nuclear Emergency centers in provinces where nuclear sites are located will receive a boost. Masoumi stressed that there has never been an incident of nuclear leakage at any Iranian nuclear plant. Radio Free Europe reported that following the publication of this incident, Mehr news removed the article from its website, however, on June 28, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Freidoon Abbasi, tried to play down the incident. “Any kind of incident may occur in any plant,” said Abbasi to Iranian Fars News. “However it does not mean that such events lead to spread of radioactive material.”

I'd like nothing more than that, but all we've heard for years now it's all too deep underground to hit.

Iranian residents close to the ‘incident’ complained about the overwhelming odor of sulfur.

The Iranians could have had a small accidental ‘dirty bomb’ or perhaps the accident had a little help from the Mossad. Even a relatively minor poof no bigger than a hand grenade in or near a nuclear storage container (or from within it) would spray radioactive material all over the processing facility. And could render it pretty much useless for years ... We hope!

And - maybe this incident was part of the reason for the announcement by the Iranians in the run up to the elections that they would suspend nuclear fuel processing.... Maybe they had to ?

There are many ways to accidentally achieve a critical mass while processing waste material from nuclear enrichment. The results can be spectacularly dangerous.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of folks, either.

Nothing.

I have had FoxNews on for over an hour and they haven’t even mentioned Iran.

They did have Geraldo on earlier giving support to Susan Rice, of course.

Close to the Mayan date! Maybe a real blast to follow—or maybe Iran had an accident of some sort. Nuke’s can be really tricky—one mistake and lots of folks die. Maybe Israel just helped things along a wee bit.

Uranium is enriched in centrifuges as uranium hexafluoride. Flourine poisoning is really bad. It attacks bones.

Yep...means they are for sure cooking the uranium.

Also would suggest that they may have changed the cascade process to accomodate weapon grade enrichment.

I’m not entirely certain how an incident from Weds. was downplayed back in June. I read the article twice and i know i sometimes make mistakes but thats what i come up with.
