    I think that's easier said than done. You either bend over and take it from the West or find something non nuclear. I don't think anyone makes it easy.

    Interesting article on the cover war being held in Iran against the Nuclear scientists

    Magnetic bombs n stuff!
    One theory not mentioned in that article is that Iran is bumping off people who either aren't fully signed up to Iran's nuclear ambitions, or who have shown some form of dissent. The method of getting rid of them creates a climate of mild fear and increases popular support of the government against the West.

    A less likely possibility than the naughty Mossad chaps being behind it all, but it shouldn't be discounted.

    I agree. The odds of Mossad stealing some passports, infiltrating a country's security and executing people is pretty remote.

    I wonder if the rescuing of Iranian sailors by the US Navy has been reported in Iran. Some clever moves there; you rescue our sailors from pirates, we sentence one of your citizens to death, you rescue adrift sailors.

    Israel really do have their own distinct way of dealing with things don't they.

    I love this one.

    I've had a funny feeling that Obama seemed stressed or depressed recently, as well as around the time that Palestine were trying to gain more favour with the UN.

    A few things I've read had mentioned it too... hmmmm...

    Here's one possible scenario:

    What War With Iran Might Look Like

    Excerpt:

    Shi'ites sympathetic to Iran sabotage Saudi Arabian eastern oil fields. Hundreds of alleged saboteurs are shot dead by Saudi security forces. An oil tanker out of Kuwait is hit by a Silkworm and runs aground to keep from sinking. Another hits a mine. Insurers at Lloyd's of London refuse to cover any tankers transiting the Persian Gulf, claiming that damage incurred during a state of war is not covered by the policies. Oil shipments from the region, one quarter of the world's supply, stop completely, and oil goes up to $300 a barrel. Wall Street suffers its biggest loss in 20 years, with the Dow Jones index plummeting more than 900 points.

    Can we please change the fucking title of this to something a little less melodramatic. Something like "ARRGHGHHGHG THE BIBLE WAS RIGHT, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!"

    Fish fingers and chips pretty straight forward.

    And anyway, shouldn't it be the minute hand? I suppose the hour hand moves too when the minute hand moves on most clocks, but given the clock has never been earlier than 10 minutes to midnight, the hour hand really hasn't ever moved that much.

    Edit: Anyway

    That's just a copy and paste of the last Chapter of 'The Clash of Civilizations', except replace 'Iran' with 'China' and 'Pakistan' with 'Japan'.

    Poor effort; I imagine the authour was smug with himself after he finished writing that.

    Well Mossad forged a bunch of Irish passports (among others) and executed Mahmoud al-Mabhouh while he was in Dubai, having entered Dubai using a variety of western passports. Happened in February 2010.

    So obviously, the liklihood of similar events such as using US passports to enter Iran and execute key people in it's nuclear is entirely unlikely. It's literally totally different :)

    Assuming it was Mossad (I do), then one has to wonder just wtf they are thinking. Killing a few scientists is not going to stop Iran from getting the bomb. Once the knowledge is there, you can't take it away. They might be trying to discourage other scientists from working on the program, but I'm sure the Iranian government has ways to force them to.

    If anything, attacks like this will make Iran desire the bomb more, to be used as a deterrent against attacks on their soil.

    I read another theory that Israel is doing this to provoke military conflict with Iran, and hopefully draw America into the fighting. To me, that answer makes the most sense, but it's a very dangerous game they're playing.

    I think that America will be gearing up to go to war with Iran this year. They just have to bring the american people up to speed with the idea. When is the U.S presidential election?

    Israel would have too much to lose, and couldn't rely on Syria and Egypt to keep out of it. They couldn't totally rely on the Americans to join in either. They must know this.

    Mossad sabotage is the most likely/obvious cause, but as you say, it seems a bit mis-directed or random. The country that seem to want war the most is Iran, and they are building up sufficient cause for a 'retaliatory' by way of this apparent bombing campaign by the Israelis. Who'd ever believe the Israelis if they were to say 'it wasn't us?' or suggested that Iranoooman was behind the attacks?

    Well Syria and Eygpyt have their own problems right now with populist uprisings against their respective regimes and will be putting their own houses in order.They will not have the political clout or unity to oppose any ground action against Iran.

    The "liberation" of Libiya has secured oil resources which is out of the hornets nest area of the middle east so its the perfect time to do it.

    The last time Syria and Egypt took on Israel didn't end so well for them.

    That's probably one of the few things in the region that you could take to the bank. There is no ways on god's (small g) green Earth that the US would sit back and let Israel be attacked.
