My level of concern has risen appreciatively after that Wiki info....
The real possibilities here almost deserve their own thread in WW3
I had not realized the heavy duty pickle that the military planners are in here......
From this information, an attack on the nuclear plant in Iran, would be catastrophic for these reasons alone....
Leaders from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries have consistently expressed fears that a serious nuclear accident at the Bushehr plant, located
at the Persian Gulf port city of Bushehr, would spread radiation throughout the region. Indeed, Bushehr is closer to six Arab capitals (Kuwait City,
Riyadh, Manama, Doha, Abu Dhabi, and Muscat) than it is to Tehran. And Iran's repeated assurances about the safety of this plant have fallen on deaf
ears because of widely reported concerns over the project's 37-year-long construction history and the high level of seismic activity in Iran. ... A
May 2011 report leaked by Iranian scientists cautioned that seismic danger to Iran could lead to a disaster similar to the meltdown at
Some scientists, citing the aging equipment at the plant, fear there is a risk of a Chernobyl-like accident at Bushehr. The Bushehr reactor is
likely to cause the next nuclear catastrophe after the Chernobyl disaster and Fukushima disaster, according to a 2011 document written by an Iranian
According to Kuwaiti geologist, Dr.Jassem al-Awadi, the plant is located at the junction of three tectonic plates. However the United States
Geological Survey and NASA characterise the geology as near the boundary of two tectonic plates, the Arabian plate and the Eurasian plate.
Despite Iranian insistence that the Bushehr plant enjoys the "highest up-to-date standards," the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says that
Iran “does not follow some important safety protocols”. Iran is the only country in the world with significant nuclear activities not to sign the
1994 Convention on Nuclear Safety, a crucial system of peer review and mutual oversight. According to Nima Gerami, if Iran wants to minimize the
risks of another nuclear disaster, it “should immediately sign and ratify the Convention on Nuclear Safety, establish an independent nuclear
regulatory authority, and implement all IAEA recommendations to assure the safety of the public and the long-term reliability of what will become the
first commercial power reactor in the Middle East”.
