Saturday's explosion claims the founder of Iran's ballistic missile program.

LONDON: A commander in charge of Iran's missile development program was among those killed in Saturday's explosion at a Revolutionary Guard base near Tehran, it has emerged.

Iranian authorities, which confirmed Brigadier-General Hassan Moghaddam's death, said the explosion was caused by an accident as ammunition was being moved. The status of its main victim, however, will add to speculation that it was an act of sabotage aimed at the country's nuclear weapons program.

Richard Silverstein, a US-based commentator with good sources in Israeli-military circles, said it was the work of the intelligence agency Mossad co-operating with the exile group the People's Mujahedin of Iran (MEK).

Iran is pretty paranoid as it is. It sounds more like baiting to me. Get Iran to fire the first shot. It's wagging the dog.
I don't object to destroying the enemy. Just to publicizing how you did it.

Wow! Someone got killed in Iran and the blame didn't immediately fall on Israel?

Oh wait, there it is. :rolleyes:

It's possible they were moving rocket fuel (solid propellant) which isn't known as the most stable substances around, (Considering the Russians, Chinese and North Koreans are the SME's) and just set the shit off.

You're all looking over the real culprit behind all of this. It's pretty obvious that Steve Jordan is the master planner and executioner for this incident. I can only imagine how many others he's behind...:ehh:
