Interesting development here. Is this virus being used for more overt actions? The blood of many Iranians are now on the hands of those who wrote
this virus, if this article is true. The size of this explosion in Iran cannot be understated. Western sources have stated the explosion was the
size of a small nuclear device, yet no radiation has been detected.
Of course the real danger here is the escalation of cyber warfare, which now appears capable of taking lives. If this was a conventional explosive
set off by the Stuxnet, it doesnt take a big leap in logic to assume that a nuclear device could be detonated in this manner as well. And further,
could this technology be reverse engineered and perhaps used on a missle base in the USA or Europe?
Im honestly not sure where i stand on this. For what its worth, i do believe Iran is building nuclear weapons, and i have a huge distrust of
non-secular governments. I was hoping the Stuxnet would have sufficiently delayed their progress so a military strike would be pulled off the table,
but im quickly losing faith. Will Iran now fear their nuclear warheads detonating whenever the western or Israeli powers wish?
