With recent events re Iran, and the moving of both Russian and USA military hardware and Aircraft Crariers to the area, with the Political threats increasing, and the increased tensions from Israel.

Is this as is suspected after the recent explosion in Iran at the arms depot the underhand work of Mossad, or even the opening rounds of an Isreali Pre Emptive uni lateral attack on Iranian nuclear Weapons capabilities?

(getting some sources1645 gmt) this is in fact the site of one of the Nuclear Plants!


'Huge explosion' heard in Iranian city #Isfahan, Fars news agency reports. Details soon: bbc.in... #Iran
Twitter BBC Twitter Iran

The site in the area of concern is

The Nuclear Technology Center of Isfahan is a nuclear research facility that currently operates four small nuclear research reactors, all supplied by China. It is run by the AEOI.[17]

The Uranium Conversion Facility at Isfahan converts yellowcake into uranium hexafluoride. As of late October 2004, the site is 70% operational with 21 of 24 workshops completed. There is also a Zirconium Production Plant (ZPP) located nearby that produces the necessary ingredients and alloys for nuclear reactors.

Maybe they did everybody a favor and blew themselves up during a nuke test.

Let's hope this isn't what it could be....
The last thing anyone needs is for us to get involved in a much more volatile powder keg of a situation than all the rest we are already involved in combined.....

Shouldn't it be too early for any official comment from anyone? Much less Israel? Very suspicious....

That was the last explosion at the start of the month as in here:


Iranian missile expert killed in explosion
Iranian authorities say blast that killed Revolutionary Guard commander and 16 others was an accident
Gaurdian

This is one thats happened just now today at a Nuclear Research Site:

Tarifa as above not an Ammo depot its a nuclear Research site, on on the "hit list" as such.

Israel and the Wests 3 letter suits and spec ops are very busy it seems?

We may even get soon confirmation of an Israeli Plane raid as in Syria and Iraq previously.

Almost immediately after the recent explosion at an Iranian military base all the usual US haters and apologists were accusing the US of involvement etc.....unfortunately for them even all official Iranian agencies insisted it was an accident and there was absolutely no reason at all to suspect US involvement.

Now I know it looks 'suspicious' in light of recent political posturing etc however let's wait until some actual FACTS come to light before issuing wild and unsubstantiated accusations and fear mongering.

ETA.

Even I must admit though, this looks a bit more that just 'suspicious'....let's hope it's nothing that could have serious consequences.

I think we will continue to see stuff like this. The first time it occured back in 2010, as well as the explosion a few weeks back, were determined to have been caused by accident and not by foreign forces.

Now we have a 3rd explosion....

Do bad things come in 3 or is third time the charm? If its an accident then there might not be any reason for an attack on Iran - They apparently are doing it themselves.

I could not find the breaking news story at the link provided. Not a thing about a big explosion. Is it possible you did not have the correct link?

S+F TY!
I really don't think Israel or the U.S. would launch an attack on just one target. It is very strange that Iran keeps having these "accidents". Very interesting worth keeping an eye on.

More on the site still nothing in print on the web world wide just links to this OP and also BBC Twitter this place is one of the main targets for the Israeli?West


Isfahan - Uranium conversion plant
Iran is building a plant at a nuclear research facility to convert yellowcake into three forms:

Hexafluoride gas - used in gas centrifuges
Uranium oxide - used to fuel reactors, albeit not the type Iran is constructing
Metal - often used in the cores of nuclear bombs. The IAEA is concerned about the metal's use, as Iran's reactors do not require it as fuel.
BBC Irans Key Nuclear Sites

The "Centrifuge" aspect of production and enrichment is very important, and "stuxnet" was aimed at trying to destroy the centrifuges as we all know.

This is the real deal imho, its really started even if initial reports are sketchy, someone is making serious moves on Iran either alone and probably covertly, though I would put it past a cruise or plane strike by Israel.

Watching with great concern and a tad of fear this could get ugly soon.

Kind Regards,

Elf

Freeborn,

As you know, haters gonna hate...


Also, it's good to look at it from different angles other than the only "America did it" explanation. Iran, a freshman when it comes to nuclear energy research as well as a freshman on home grown weapons might be a good indication of screw ups - especially on the nuclear part.

Iran could have just did something wrong and blew up a reactor.

Seems others are now posting the same news.

twitter.com...#!/search/Isfahan

Always tough with Iran because even if this was an accident they could say it was Mossad or if it was Mossad they can say it's an accident.

Could be the start of something nasty though.

hmm.. seems they have a western rat infestation going on..

no such thing as coincidence...

Has anyone found any sources to confirm this I have been on the links and couldn't find anything to do with this, maybe they took it down after being reported?
I hope this has not happened because it could cause a domino effect for the worse.
Also if it is indeed at a nuclear power plant etc which way is the wind blowing? if it is going towards Israel we could be in for some fire works.

Why does everybody always jump the gun and think that WW3 is about to start?? It was an accident. It's already being reported as such. Calm down lol



The Revolutionary Guard said the accidental explosion occurred while military personnel were transporting munitions.
