How many nuclear scientists have been killed under very suspicious circumstances in the past year or so? If you don't know the answer is 4.
Iran points a finger at Israel. I am sure the msm will spin that as "antisemetism"
Which is nonsense. The first nation that came to my mind as the likely culprit behind this murder and terrorism was Israel. Israel has made it loud and clear they want Iran-GONE.
Besides : Israel ‘not shedding tear’ over deadly Iran blast
And really....why would they?
The blast came a day after Israel’s chief of staff said 2012 would be a “critical” year for Iran.
JERUSALEM: A senior Israeli official on Wednesday gave a cryptic reaction to a car bomb which killed an Iranian nuclear scientist, saying he was unaware who did it but calling it an act of “revenge.”
”I don’t know who took revenge on the Iranian scientist, but I am definitely not shedding a tear,” Israeli military spokesman Brigadier General Yoav Mordechai wrote on his official Facebook page.
I have my doubts this fellow doesn't know who or why or how the scientist was killed
Interesting article here. The terror/murder comes at a very opportune time.
There are also actors that escalate at times time not to strengthen their position at the talks, but to scuttle the talks. The attack on the British embassy in Tehran late last year was partly motivated by the desire of one political faction in Iran to undo the talks. Yesterday’s assassination of another Iranian nuclear scientist was likely conducted by a regional actor who prefers a military confrontation with Iran over a compromise that would permit Iran to retain nuclear enrichment capabilities, even if it doesn’t build a bomb.
What regional "actor" or nation state fits that description to a tee?
Interesting commentary from the Guardian. -
This covert war on Iran is illegal and dangerous.
As are all covert wars. But danger and issues of legality have never stopped warmongers previously.
These days, more than ever, news from Iran is surrounded in mystery. Whether it's the assassination of nuclear scientists, explosions at military bases, the spread of a computer worm or even the downing (or crash) of a US spy drone.......
Worth reading for a good overview on just how many attacks have taken place on Iran already. For the past two years now
How come the UN is so silent? Just wondering?
