1. If the denials are untrue, then they serve to...
Harry Wright ,   UK   (01.29.13)
draw out information from the perpetrators by challenging them to provide proof. It also saves the Iranian regime from the wrath of the people for the time being. If the denials are true, then the story is a fantastic one for a movie. An accomplishment of that magnitude truly boggles the mind.
2. Like who cares?
3. Fordo Explosions?!
Son Of Cyrus ,   UK   (01.30.13)
There must be a lot more to it than what has been made public so far! Either a Mega Achievment for whoever did it (We can safely discard the accidental explosion) or a Mega Publicity Stunt as #1 Harry Wright suggests. We will be hearing a lot more about this in the near future.
4. Notice that "Inspector" thingy?
Makina ,   New York, USA   (01.30.13)
When are the Jews going to come clean, and stop being hypocritical, and have the equal inspections of THEIR nuclear facilities that Iran already has? Incredible, that this is glossed over time and again.
5. In other words...
Harry Wright ,   UK   (01.30.13)
The IAEA did not "observe" any "incident" at Fordo. What did they look at? A Google map? I would have given more credibility to that statement if the IAEA had stated that they had toured the complex, denied that the area was cordoned off and provided pictures of themselves happily touring the the perfectly intact rooms. The IAEA's statement is just too vague to convince anyone that there were no explosions 300 feet under a mountain.
6. What???
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (01.30.13)
As I've been saying since the story broke: The US/CIA say, "There's no evidence of it." The Israelis say, "What? Really? We don't know anything about that. But if it happened, it's not such a bad thing." The Iranians say, "It didn't happen. But the Israelis did it."
7. To: No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.30.13)
Because Israel is a non-signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, that's why. Do you have a problem with that? Too bad. Perhaps you have forgotten that nuclear physics is a JEWISH SCIENCE, and we just don't feel like sharing what we have with the rest of the world. Do you have a problem with that, too? Well, go bang your head against a wall. Perhaps you will feel better.
8. C'mon, guys, face it!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.30.13)
An Iranian nuclear facility that everyone thought was impregnable just got pregnant. And Israel is the proud daddy. Of course the world is staggered! They've only just gotten a little bitty taste of what Israel is capable of doing. Yeah .... we're that good.
9. Ok, So blow it up anyway
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (01.30.13)
If the work is not done then get the job done!
10. now you all can relax and kick back
tea man ,   marjayoun   (01.30.13)
no Kaboom no radiation every thing is working smoothly and so efficiently to the benefit of human race
11. An article I read today said 14 North Koreans and two
Rivkah   (01.30.13)
high ranking generals are among those trapped by the explosion.
12. #1. You should STFU, if you don't care.
Persian CAT   (01.30.13)
13. Just read that
SD Charger ,   San Diego   (01.30.13)
the UN has CCTV cameras at Fordo, but they can only view them between 7-10 days AFTER the images are captured. This is probably the case and it doesn't surprise me that the UN would be 7-10 days behind on a nuclear site. Pathetic.
14. Whatever the UN says, expect the opposite to be true
Yaniv ,   Israel   (01.30.13)
16. #4 - Makina
Devorah   (01.30.13)
Nothing is being glossed over. Israel did not sign the NPT and is not subject to inspections. Do your homework before coming here and blabbing nonsense.
17. Didn't Sarah say....
Mike   (01.30.13)
"IAEA inspectors regularly visit Iranian nuclear sites, including the one at Fordo" But but Sarah said "Actually, the IAEA has been denied all access to Fordo. In violation, I might add, of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to which Iran is a signatory."
18. WELL TRIED ONCE AGAIN.............#8
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (01.30.13)
Nothing has happened at the plant..................sorry Sarah.
19. #4
DR ,   Toronto   (01.30.13)
It is the Israeli military and not the Jews.
