But surely you see the unlikelihood of testing a nuke under your capital in an earthquake zone.

I have no faith in the goodness of the Iranian govt but dude a litle self respect in the quality of the anti Iran propaganda you decide to chat about, eh?

It wouldn't necessarily take a nuclear detonation under Tehran to trigger a quake there. A detonation along or near a nearby or connected fault could feasibly trigger quakes elsewhere.
Intentionaly test a weapon 'here' causing a quake to happen 'there'....
Or test under the city to prevent a strike on the test facility by other governments...

Have you watched the news from Baghdad hiding a Nuke test centre under Tehran, lol, wouldn't stop the US or Israel.

I would be more apt to believe that if an earthquake did hit Tehran they would blame it on Israel attacking them! Plenty of damage for the media to see! Good excuse to fight back!

But that is just MHO!

Sudden Earthquake Warnings in Tehran: Are they Prelude to a Nuclear Test?

Last week's sudden warnings by Iranian government of an imminent earthquake in Tehran has raised speculations on the cause of this sudden move. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iranian President, wants many residents of Tehran to permanently move out to avoid the chaos and destruction that will ensue an expected earthquake. Other government officials pointed out that especially "university students" need to leave Tehran! to stay safe. Imams appointed by Iranian leader to The Friday prayer sermons, also warn
(visit the link for the full news article)

maybe he just wants the students out because they are against the goverment.

More plausible than the nuke test hypothesis.

nothing is odd here
for a long time they were supposed to make Tehran no longer the capital because of seismic activity that would be to come.

this is old news really
nothing to worry about


^This.
Have a look at a geological map of Tehran, investigate the geological history of the area and recognise the natural hazards.

Or perhaps they have been confiring with venezuelan president and think that the US, Israel, and Briton, etc. are going to start haarping on them in less than conventional ways.

Tehran does sit on a fault line. If they were testing a nuke they have plenty other space to use. Surely as far away from cities and fault lines as they could get.

The Iranians are strategic thinkers, even from an earthquake perspective the advise is valid, get away from city centres.

As likely as an earthquake is a US/Israeli strike on "military targets" ... ie any government building, including hospitals and utilities. If the population has been thinned out, emergency response will be much more effective.

In any conceivable emergency, its a good idea.
