Who's blowing up Iran's gas pipelines?


blogs.telegraph.co.uk

In the past few weeks Iran’s gas infrastructure, which is central to the country’s energy requirements, has been hit by a series of unexplained explosions.

The series of mysterious explosions began at the end of July when the state-owned Tehran Times reported that a pipeline carrying gas from Iran to Turkey had exploded near the eastern Turkish town of Dogubayazit. Iranian officials blamed the blast on Kurdish rebels.

Nothing like a good old "who dunnit" mystery. Especially in one of the tensest areas of the world, where every nerve is stretched to breaking point and on hair-trigger.

So have at it ATS...solve the mystery...who is doing this, why? What makes you think so? I expect lots of clashing opinons so be easy and avoid insults.

Peace on earth (yeah like that will ever happen, but still a man can dream...),

Could be regular terrorist factions acting within Iran.
Could be CIA/mossad preparing for a strike against Iran.
Who knows these days.

And why would the West attack these pipelines? Because we like higher gas prices in the midst of a struggling economy?

This is gas going to turkey, someone who has been criss crossing with Iran for awhile now.

Perhaps it was a way to say stick with NATO?

Iran has enough internal enemies without having to look outside. With that being said, it could be anyone when you have just as enemies outside as you do inside.

It is a way to stick it to Iran and Turkey. Both enemies of the Kurds.

Kurds? and Jandullah??

Don't tell me the Green Movement

My first thought would be Kurds as they love Turkey as much as they love Iran or even the beloved Saddam when that region of Iraq was ruled by him.

Second thought is moderates within Iran trying to start government unrest.

I'd bet on an eventually self-destructing web of Mossad and Iranian dissidents. That whole "Enemy of my enemy is my friend" thing only goes so far.

You got it buddy.

I am going with the Kurds too. That was my first thought.

We could be wrong but they have a MOTIVE for sure.

This could turn out badly for the rest of the Kurds though. Not like it changes anything.

The Kurds have been oppressed and trashed by all parties for a long long time. I honestly hold hope they can form their own state one day.

Or all of the nations in the region could treat them like human beings and respectfully maybe? Nah, I'm dreaming.

Has anyone claimed responsibility yet??

Hmmm...okay. The natural gas pipelines.

My first guess is Russia and my second is CIA's al Qaeda hired guns.
More clues please.

The US has Special Forces in Country. It has been on the news before.

US special forces 'inside Iran'
news.bbc.co.uk...

Edit to add: This is an old story, but I heard it on the news about month ago that they were in Iran. Just can't find it right now.
