    Big bang in Terhan kills 15

    Anyone know any more info on this ?? all I can find is closed bits of reports .

    I hope this is not the start of what I might fear it could turn into with the USA lining up with Israel on one side to teach Iran a lesson before they get full nuclear capability , and Russia and China on the other side .

    Lets hope it was an earth tremor
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Iran explosion at Revolutionary Guards military base


    Continue reading the main story Related Stories


    Fifteen soldiers have been killed in a huge explosion at a military base near Iran's capital of Tehran, officials say.
    The blast occurred when weapons were being moved inside a Revolutionary Guards depot, a spokesman for the elite unit told state TV.
    Windows in nearby buildings were shattered and the blast was heard in central Tehran, 40 km (25 miles) away.
    A helicopter and ambulances have reportedly been sent to the scene.
    Local MP Hossein Garousi said "a large part of an ammunition depot exploded," parliament's website reported.
    The Revolutionary Guards spokesman did not say what caused the blast in the village of Bidganeh, near the city of Karaj.
    "Some of the casualties are reported to be in a critical condition," he said.
    Karaj resident Kaveer told the BBC's Newshour programme that the sound was "deafening".
    "We were kind of shocked. I just ran out of the house and looked around," he said.
    Economic force
    An elite military force, the Revolutionary Guard was set up shortly after the 1979 Iranian revolution to defend the country's Islamic system.
    It has since become a major military, political and economic force in Iran.
    The Revolutionary Guard has been targeted by UN sanctions aimed at pressuring Iran to halt uranium enrichment.
    There have been occasional unexplained explosions in Iran before.
    Eighteen people were killed in a blast at a Revolutionary Guards base in the north-western Lorestan province in October 2010.
    The latest blast comes at a time of heightened tensions over Iran's nuclear ambitions.
    The UN's nuclear watchdog the IAEA released a report on Tuesday which, correspondents say, prompted new fears that Iran's nuclear programme has a military objective.
    There has also been speculation in Israel's media that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering ordering strikes against Iran's nuclear sites, in the hope of stalling or ending its programme.
    Iran says its nuclear programme has purely civilian aims.

    I don't think this is about the "Yanks" directly or indirectly.

    Remember, Israel asked GWB to attack Iran with Israel and GWB said no.

    Yes, there's an election coming up, but I doubt Obama would do so.

    This may be Israel's own doing, an an attack may be Israel's own doing - as it should be.

    Diego Garcia - 5 hours from Tehran.







    Radio transmission from the B2 pilot on his way back to DG .

    "Terhan control, Tehrahn control, this is ***** from the US Air Force, we have just cleared Iranian airspace and are heading for Diego Garcia, an island lent to us by the UK, Have a nice day"

    Would either side tell us?
