    There is unfortunately no basis for renewed optimism that this current litigation will have any meaningful impact on precious metals manipulation – with respect to either silver or gold.

I thought the previous explosion was weeks ago?

If - there has been numerous strikes - why are the Iranians just taking it?

Would they not have made loud statements - and retaliated already?

Isn't the notion that Iran cannot retaliate ridiculous?

Hasn't Hamaz & Hizbolla & Iranian Guards plentifully struck and retaliated in the past?

Those Iranians should really be a little more careful with their high explosives and volatile materials.

Gee, I sure hope they don’t get their hands on anything more dangerous.

Israeli intelligence officials told The Times that there was “no doubt” that the blast struck the nuclear facilities at Isfahan and that it was “no accident.”

Later, an Israeli intelligence source is quoted as follows:

“This caused damage to the facilities in Isfahan, particularly to the elements we believe were involved in storage of raw materials,” said one military intelligence source.

I don't see the point of voting Trav's commnent down, it's a reasonable possibility that a missile accidentally exploded. Unless you are on the ground in Iran you should leave all possibilities open in your mind, rather than reflexively downvoting somebody's comments because he sometimes says the "N-WORD" (gasp)

Trav;

When objects at rest blow up, the debris scatter is much more symmetrical, though rarely perfect. Examining the image after the incident, the debris is highly asymmetric, which would lead one to suspect there was a kinetic vector associated with the event. Take that as you will.

On a separate topic, you were right about the "$6 dollars to dig it out of the ground" comment, it wasn't you. My apologies.

Dr. Head - IF no media outlet, anywhere in the world, reported an Iranian government statement about something like "CIA/Mossad attacks on Iranian missile bases"...  - then:

A) all worldwide media would be asleep and or self-sabotaging - OR:

B) US would have accomplished full control of every media outlet on Earth

- in which either cases US has won the final war of the world and now controls everything without exception - and consequently we can all join the US armed forces and or HomeLand Security or go the mall or just commit hare-kiri, because there will be absolutely no further ideas, issues or battles to bother with, but only repetitious non-ideas and non-news and thus no life, but only submission, slavery and roboticism.

Hail The Home-Land Uber Alles.

Retaliate how? Throw a missle at Isreal and invite the West to carpet bomb them? Sink an oil tanker in the  Strait of Hormuz and give the west another excuse to attack. Isreal used the exact same tatic to destroy Syria's Al-Kibar nuclear facility and got away and to this day have not admitted to carrying out the attack. Unless Isreal openly admits to attacking Iran there is little Iran can do about it with being seen as the aggressor here.

While you might not be right about what is going on in Iran, it is a real possibility. And what you say about Iran's options are also true. Being provoked into striking back is a death sentence and an open invitation for hundreds of missiles and planes from US and Israeli bases and ships to being the reduction of Iran to the 13th century.

Were you an Iranian leader and several of your assets were struck by missile or sabatoge traced to Israel, what would you do? What could you do? The consequences of self defense are oblivion. That of course is WHY they seek a few nukes!!! Plainly without them they are open to any form of attack the west chooses. That is the fact. Love 'em or hate 'em, the Iranians have all reason to seek nukes. See Iraq as an example, then wonder why Pakistan gets a free ride to a large degree, when they are terror central! Could it be the nukes? I think so!

Desert & Jack - where have you guys been the last 60 years?

Iranian retaliation would be exacted by terrorism - via Hizbollah, Hamaz... like so many times before.

Are you blinded by admiration for US military might...?

You do realize that Pentagon/CIA might is paid for by the People's Repulic via US bonds and deflating USD?

If you are against the FED and againts bailout, surely you must be against US empire...? 

Which is continuously bailed out by China, who for slave wages makes all the stuff US consumes...

Or - if not, you win, Pentagon/CIA wins, Mossad wins, Wall Street wins, US FED & Bernak wins - Great!

Let's go to the mall. Let's buy stocks. Let's attack Iran all out - and N. Korea too, and maybe Pakistan too if they don't accomodate US again in a hurry... of course we should fly 6000 drones over there and kill anyone who opposes us and Halliburton and Bechtel and all our other nice corporations...

It's really cool how the financially decimated US population gets a kick out of vicarious supremacy. Very Cool.  And now that US power has gone totally stealth it's even cooler. We are the best. US rules forever and ever - and unto us a son is born and a very merry Christmas to all ... 

- if it is still allowed to say the word "Christmas"....

Have some crazy jihaddi-outfit blow up the oil facilities in Ghawar, Saudi Arabia. That should put a decent dent in the growth perspectives of world e-con-me and with that going down the tubes, the US ability to print USD for war.

Kim Jong Il demonstrates perfectly that the *only* way to keep the westerner away is by being absolutely stone crazy, capable of Anything, with no possibility that Wall Street can profit on your actions. Pakistan, despite all its nukes, gets shat all over by NATO.

There is of course an untold secret about Iran as well.

It has been in the grip of anopium addiction for centuries now. Thank you Brittania. Huge problem. If you cannot get them this way, get them that. And with this Opium business, CHina was such the stencil. And it worked too. India, China and Iran, destroyed by Opium, both agriculture and consumption (in it's derivative forms).

Interesting! You know Russia openly accuses the west, NATO and the USA in particular of being behind the flood of heroin into Russia from Afghanistan?  They believe, and say openly, that the west seeks to destroy Russia from within by the horrible drug problem in all parts of Russia. Death on the young is commonplace. Russian leaders believe NATO protects and funnels drugs from Afghanistan to the central asian nations and on into Russia where it is destroying a generation.

This problem is very convinient for the west seeking to prevent a return of Russia power in the long run.

Yup. in fact, that ultra pure heroin is flooding the EU, causing people used to mixed stuff, to overdose.

I'm good on divide and conquer, which is why I'm a bit surprised that the globe doesn't seem to really be paying attention to the war that is ongoing in Iran.  It's either us or Israel or both, no?  So doesn't the lack of coverage imply some sort of global tacit approval?  At least by the global media... hence my question.

I don't understand surgical strikes can happen without some outrage from some corner of the globe.
