“Israel believes the Iranians have not evacuated the surrounding area. It is unclear whether that is because no harmful substances have been released, or because Tehran is trying to avoid sparking panic among residents.”
Just to be on the safe side, IRNA, the official Iranian news organ, announced late Sunday evening that “there has been no explosion in Fordo nuclear Facility, the deputy head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Seyyed Shamseddin Barbroudi said on Sunday.”
The announcement continued:
“Washington and its Western allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.”
You see the Iranian conundrum? On the one hand they want to say that no one has touched their plant and all the bombs are intact, and revving up to go hit the Zionist enemy. But, on the other hand, they’re not supposed to have any nuclear bombs in the first place. So, in the end, nothing happened, nothing exploded, it’s all good.
The only problem they have right now is how to let the couple hundred folks out of there without being spotted by satellites. I say, wait for a cloudy day and make a run for it.Yori Yanover
