Immense Explosion in Iran May Have Nuclear Origins
Arutz Sheva ^ | 6/5/14 | Eliran Aharon & Tova Dvorin

An immense explosion has been heard throughout the northern Iranian city of Qazvin, semi-official Fars news agency reported, and many casualties are expected from the blast.

Around 1.1 million people live in the city, which is located about 100 miles north of Tehran.

The source of the blast remains undetermined. Several mystery explosions have been reported in the past several years in the region, none of which were ever verified.

Well it’s a good thing that is totally oblivious of the danger of a nuclear Iran, because everyone knows that if you ignore something then it ignores you.

Explosions, collapsed buildings, and city blocks on fire are perfectly normal for this area. Nothing to see here. Move on.

An accidental nuclear explosion in Iran?

Couldn’t have happened to a better bunch of people.

But gee, my sympathy meter must need new batteries; it says that I am completely unconcerned.

We should have given Russia and China a few mystery nukes when they were first in such a rush to get them. The world would be a much safer place.

Although I totally agree with your sentiment, I think the nuclear link isn't the explosion but the capabilities of the facilities rumored to be there.

I think if there were an nuclear explosion expected or unexpected, the word would be out much more prominently.

This is bigger than last time. Last time they were trying to mount a nuke on a missile and had a non nuclear explosion.

Give the Mossad time and enough rope and they will hang the lot of the criminals of the world with rope left over for those who are guilty of Criminal Thinking. Don’t mess with Mossad if you want to live. Fund them, shelter them and help them all you can, but don’t get in between them and their targets.

I’ve been saying for years we should drop a big nuke on one of their cities and then just deny deny. Tell the world “we warned you that nuclear stuff was unstable. Its really dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing with it”.
