One a couple weeks ago and one today. Sat image shows the one from two weeks ago and what's left. Today they say it happened, then it didn't happen then it did. Who knows what is going on. It appears Iranian weapons facilities are not a safe place to be right now though.

"Today's curious news report posted by Iran's semi-official news agency Fars, which was promptly muted, only to be republished by Israel's Haaretz, of a major explosion near the Iranian city of Isfahan, has left many scratching their heads. As Haaretz reports: "Speaking with Fars news agency, Isfahan’s deputy mayor confirmed the reports and said the authorities are investigating the matter. However, after the incident was reported in Israel, the report was taken off the Fars website." Which led many to wonder: is this a real event or merely a provocation designed to make Iranians believe they were attacked? Further complicating matters is the just released news from Washington Post which shows satellite images of the aftermath of another explosion in Iran, this time from two weeks ago at an Iranian missile base."

Sounds to me like they have pissed off the gods...

The Iranians should spend more time on munitions handling safety procedures and less time on praying...

Looks like some inside jobs. Not a lot of folks like the Iranian leaders. They want to be just left alone and all this blow up Israel and start nuclear wars hanging over em can't be a lot of fun. CIA been running around that country since Carter was ankle grabbing back in the day.

Considering that the security around those facilities are tight, more than likely an inside job.

Iran isn't screaming that they have been infiltrated by an enemy of the state, nor are they admitting to the possibility that it comes from within. They are just scratching their heads over it.

Sure does seem like this might be the work of some cruise missiles. How very interesting.

So who's causing all these mysterious explosions in and around Iranian nuclear facilities?

Some are saying that they are simply accidents. When you have missiles and rocket fuel and warheads around, sometimes things go boom.

Other are saying the Israelis are doing it. They would certainly have motivation - does anyone have any doubt who would be the preferred target of an Iranian nuke? The Israelis bombed an Iraqi nuclear reactor in the 1990s to prevent it from producing fuel for Iraqi nuclear weapons. But they straightforwardly used fighter jets, stripped down for maximum range and carrying lots of fuel and only a few bombs each. Iran is much farther away. Do the Israelis even have a plane capable of carrying a bomb, that can reach Iran?

Maybe a covert Israeli Special-Forces team, inserted in some unknown, undetected way, and then recovered by an even more mysterious but equally undetected way? Maybe by those same aircraft that still can't reach Iran from Israel?

But there is another possiblity.

All we really know is that something has gone BOOM, more than once, in more than one Iranian nuclear facility. No sign of any aircraft in the area (unlike the Israeli raid against that Iraqi reactor). And it's difficult to believe that ANYONE could go in on the ground and get inside a nuclear facility with a large enough bomb to do that much damage... without being detected.

But... recall that during Gulf War I Continued, in the 2000s, a number of bombing missions were staged by U.S. Air Force B-2 stealth bombers. Some came from the island of Diego Garcia... but most of them took off from their home base in Missouri, and flew literally halfway around the world, refueling in the air again and again, dropping their precision bombs on Iraqi targets, and flying all the way back (with more aerial refueling) to Missouri.

And the first few times this was done, the Iraqis didn't even know they'd been bombed. The planes were impossible to detect on radar, and they flew very high, above 30,000 feet, and could not be heard or seen. It was an ordinary day in Baghdad, with people walking around and children playing in the parks, when suddenly a government building halfway down the block exploded and collapsed. Officials assumed at first it was an accident (natural gas explosion?), or possibly sabotage by someone who had planted one or more bombs inside the building. Only when the U.S. announced details of the mission, did Iraq realize what had happened.

Hmmm... I wonder if there was maybe an isolated B-2 bomber at the base in Missouri, that was quietly wheeled into a hangar one evening, and the doors closed and locked for maybe a week so nobody could see what was inside? And maybe nobody noticed when the hangar doors quietly opened, maybe at 3AM in the morning, the plane wheeled out and took off as the hangar doors closed again? And anybody who asked, was told that of course that B-2 was still inside? And then several days later, maybe a plane landed quietly at 2AM, the hangar doors opened and the plane wheeled inside, the doors closing immediately?

And did one of these mysterious explosions at an Iranian nuclear facility, take place sometime during the period when the plane was ostensibly still inside the hangar? And no aircraft were seen or heard in that part of Iran, nor were any picked up on radar?

And did any of the various refueling planes stationed around the world, happen to fly any "training" missions" during that time?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Or do they?

I think this is good news, now the neo cons can sleep at night knowing Iraq has lost their capability to launch their 1 little nuke. And that is if they even have a nuke? Naw, they will just think of another reason to bomb Iran.

There are lots of people who are still anticipating a war with Iran, but I'm surprised how few seem to realize we are already at war with them and have been for some time.

"Unconventional War" has a new meaning in the 21st century.

I would not be surprised if Isrealis had something to do with it, or a cruise missile or 2. Seems Washington is hankering to invade, I doubt they will advertise it to us if they opt to do it.

I see nothing to be gained from war with iran , except eliminating their munitions. Give them access tot he West the repression will implode on its own.
