Is the Stuxnet computer malworm back on the warpath in Iran?
Exhaustive investigations into the deadly explosion last Saturday, Nov. 12 of the Sejil-2 ballistic missile at the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Alghadir base point increasingly to a technical fault originating in the computer system controlling the missile and not the missile itself. The head of Iran's ballistic missile program Maj. Gen. Hassan Moghaddam was among the 36 officers killed in the blast which rocked Tehran 46 kilometers away.
(Tehran reported 17 deaths although 36 funerals took place.)
Since the disaster, experts have run tests on missiles of the same type as Sejil 2 and on their launching mechanisms.

I'll bet the war mongers are salivating over the prospect of "limited" nuclear war.

what size of a device would cause a 52 sq kilometer facility to get pretty much demolished...
the WWII bombs in Japan ...15 Kilotons each (estimated) flattened each city of mostly timber constructions and not hardened concrete & steel buildings such as the modern day military facilities in Iran above ground---and below ground some acres of reinforced bunkers that will require the 30,000 lb bunker busters that penetrate some 260+ feet before blowing up.
no radiation? that single missile must have been in the megton range of destroying the base of 52 sq kilometers
nothing Adds up with the sketchy info that is acailable,,,,
anything more from the debka files?
