Satellite Image Confirms Iranian Missile Base Was Destroyed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Today's curious news report posted by Iran's semi-official news agency Fars, which was promptly muted, only to be republished by Israel's Haaretz, of a major explosion near the Iranian city of Isfahan, has left many scratching their heads. As Haaretz reports: "Speaking with Fars news agency, Isfahan’s deputy mayor confirmed the reports and said the authorities are investigating the matter. However, after the incident was reported in Israel, the report was taken off the Fars website." Which led many to wonder: is this a real event or merely a provocation designed to make Iranians believe they were attacked? Further complicating matters is the just released news from Washington Post which shows satellite images of the aftermath of another explosion in Iran, this time from two weeks ago at an Iranian missile base. "The image of the compound, near the city of Malard, doesn’t provide any clues as to what caused the Nov. 12 explosion, which Iranian authorities described as an “accident” involving the transport of ammunition. But it does make clear that the facility has been effectively destroyed. Paul Brannan, a senior analyst for the Institute for Science and International Security, which specializes in the study of nuclear weapons programs, said it’s impossible to tell from the image whether the blast was caused by sabotage, as has has been speculated in this explosion and others at transport facilities, oil refineries and military bases in Iran. Brannan said ISIS had recently learned from “knowledgable officials” that the blast had occurred just as Iran had achieved a milestone in the development of a new missile and may have been performing a “volatile procedure involving a missile engine at the site.” So the question stands: is Iran being systematically attacked with the news being covered up for fear that it can not retaliate and thus seem week; is it being sabbotaged on a weekly basis, or is everything just one big media disinformation campaign designed to provoke Iran to lash out? We will probably know very soon, today's "oversold" and now completely disconnected from reality rally notwithstanding.

The clear layer is glycerin. You can mix glycerin back in when you make soap. Or you can skim the glycerin off.

 

You can mix glycerin with nitric acid to make nitroglyerin.

 

You can mix nitroglycerin with sodium nitrate and sawdust to make dynamite.

 

You can blow up bridges.

 

You can mix nitroglycerin with more nitric acid and and parafin and make gelatin explosives.

 

You can blow up a building, easy.

 

With enough soap, you can blow up the whole world.

 

I know this because Tyler knows this.

They are taking out certain operational areas that could be used to tool more rockets or fuel for their rockets.  They know that Iran has alot of long range (and accurate) rockets.  They want to be able to take them all out at one time and not be able to reconstitute quickly.  Who knows, there might be special forces in the country sabotaging key structures for a prelude to attack.  Remember the media will work with the govt. to keep things quiet.

The cunning plan: keep degrading the missle facilities. Check this new headline out from over at the Debka site: NATO-Gulf military officers in Turkey prepare for intervention in Syria.  While you degrade Iranian missle capability, you crash Assad's economic base, cut off the flow of whizz-bangs to Hamas et al, then fire up the missle defense, drop everything you have on Iran via air strikes while the IDF invades the territories and slaughters everyone.  Then they have a free ride to the Tigris. The helpless Iraqis shit all over themselves and the New Zionist Empire, from the transjordan to the Tigris is complete. Obama gets promoted to Overlord by his Neocon Masters. Bwa ha ha.... yours,

You need fuming (red) nitric acid to fully nitrate the glycerin. Not easy. These types polynitrated compounds in pure form are very shock (mechanically & electrically) sensitive. Don't believe recipes from the Internet.

Naphthalene (mothballs) are far more useful and less messy than paraffin or sawdust (although nitrocellulose is a good fuse material). Paraffin is not easily nitrated. Naphthalene mixtures form stable putty/plastics.

That said, why would anyone want to blow things up?

As it does every year, WND is inviting readers to submit their candidates for the most "spiked" stories of the year in Operation Spike!

At this time, news organizations prepare their year-end retrospective replays of what they consider to have been the top news stories of the previous 12 months. But WND's editors have always found it more newsworthy to publish a compilation of the important stories most ignored by the establishment press.

WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah has sponsored "Operation Spike" every year since 1988 and since founding WND in May 1997 has continued the annual tradition. For the past 12 years, WND has invited its readers to join in and submit what they considered the most underreported stories of the past year.

(Story continues below)

       


Last year, WND's "readers' choice" picks for the 10 most underreported stories of 2011 were:


  1. Elections official Tim Adams claims there is no Hawaiian birth certificate for Barack Obama.
  2. Army officer court-martialed, jailed after questioning Obama's eligibility.
  3. The reality of how poorly the U.S. economy is doing.
  4. America's move toward socialism.
  5. The fall of the "mainstream" news media as ratings drop, advertising plunges and public distrust grows.
  6. Allegations of fraud, including illegal voting by felons and a formalized refusal by some states to follow election law regarding ballots for the military raise the possibility of manipulation of elections.
  7. Mysterious missile spotted off the coast of California.
  8. The growing evidence against the theory that mankind is a significant factor in climate change.
  9. The push in the U.S. courts by homosexual advocates to demand the legalization of same-sex "marriage" as well as through Congress to formally adopt the policy of allowing self-declared homosexuals in the U.S. military.
  10. The impact of the TSA's full-body scanners, including the associated health risks, invasion of privacy and violations of the 4th Amendment protections against unreasonable searches.

The budget problem will be assuaged by raising taxes less then the amount the Bush tax cuts are set to increase them.  The Red and the Blues will both be free to claim they actually cut taxes.  Advantage Barry O.  

CIA operatives in Syria indiscriminately killing innocent citizens, that looks like Syrian's killing their own, will be Pres. Zer0's excuse to take no fly zone Military action, where they begin taking out Syria's 6,000 tanks.  And as pressure mounts, to keep Israel at bay, we will be on the verge of, or in, active conflict with Iran; advantage 0.

American's are reluctant to change horses when embroiled in a shooting match... Debt Clown Zer0 gets his second term and the American Citizen, Mark is had once again.

Glad to see this bothers some people.  It does me, as well.  But things could very well play out along these lines.  And where would the SPX be?  Will the prospect of a larger conflict in the Middle East strengthen the dollar; the country?

 

"There are no parasites as vile, insidious and cold as the Bankers.  They are the original Satanist.  Stop the bankers and you stop the wars, you stop the poverty, you stop the inequality.  You stop every evil financed by them and they are considerable....

All Americans must consider the following

"The bane of humanity is we learn nothing from the horrors of past atrocities; and history repeats itself. Our/Your passive acceptance of one transgression or worse complicit participation, always makes way for another.  This and the belief that injustice, visited on our neighbor, will not one day come knocking at our door is the banality of evil and its final reward is death." - Inflection Point

funny how iran has opened its doors to nuclear arms investigators as a signatory member - yet israel has refused to sign-up or for that matter let no investigations of their known nuclear arsenal to date - this is terrible - what gives this country the right to have nuclear weapons in the first place - what gives the american foreign aid committee the right to give the 'lion's share' to israel when the country dual-citizenship are the wealthiest collective in the known universe - just makes me sick to my stomach

ps. really,... what has iran done - we just can't go on destroying nations and killing millions of innocents for no apparent reason - sure their leader said some stupid things but yahoo is no different - really,... this is getting seriously stupid

Waiting for Krugman report saying he's EXTREMELY BULLISH on Iran after all the destruction. Add some deficit spending and there you have it, perpetual motion growth machine is back in town! Euro-Gollum, as an unelected president, might get interested in the report. It would provide new way to approach tackling the continent wide insolvency glitch. Bombs away all over zeurope and massive rebuilding.
