Iran: A series of fortunate events? UPDATED
Maybe it’s all coincidental,
First, the Stuxnet virus at work for 17 months,
the worm was designed to allow the Iranian program to continue but never succeed, and never to know why.
Then all those hints from Arab leaders wanting Iran stopped “by all means necessary“, as revealed by the Wikileaks.
Both scholars’ wives and a driver were also injured in the attacks, according to the news agencies. The slain scientist, Majid Shahriari, was a member of the nuclear engineering team at the Shahid Behesti university in Tehran, according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency, or IRNA.
It almost looked like an old-fashioned Mafia hit out of a movie,
The assassins, riding motorcycles, tossed bombs at — or attached them to — vehicles of the two Shahid Behesti University professors as they drove with their spouses en route to work between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m..
“A Pulsar motorbike drove close to Dr. Shahriari’s car and stuck a bomb on his car which after a few seconds exploded,” Tehran police chief Hossein Sajednia was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency
Not the first blast to kill a scientist in the Iranian nuclear program,
A powerful and still mysterious Jan. 12 explosion killed Iranian physicist Massoud Ali Mohammadi near his home.
By now Iran ought to take the hint that Someone Is Trying To Sabotage The Iranian Nuclear Program.
Yes, but the word “someone” implies a single entity. One shouldn’t rule out a group of entities acting together.
I sure would like to think my government was capable of stuff like this. Or had the balls to do it. But I don’t.
