Anybody got the scoop on the Israeli Secret Forces poisoning the Iranian Nuclear Minister?
Let me make an uneducated guess:
A nation that thumbs its nose at the NPT will punish another nation for thumbing its nose at the NPT. Actually, that seems all too familiar...
Reported on KFI 640 radio (Los Angeles) this morning - Developing Story: Israeli agents killed the head of Irans nuclear program, after being in that country for some months.
Great, assasinate someone. That sends the right message, do as we say, not as we do. The 'good' nations have a right to surround Iran with hostile weapons and armies, and apply international law (Ha!) selectively to whomever they please. We should have peace in no time!
Report: Israel Behind Iranian Nuclear Scientist's Death

Jerusalem, Israel (AHN) - A report published at the weekend strongly suggested that Israel's Mossad spy agency was behind last month's death of a prominent Iranian scientist involved in his nation's nuclear program.
Britain's Sunday Times cited intelligence sources that in turn pointed to undisclosed information indicating that nuclear physicist Ardeshire Hassanpour's death on January 15 was no accident, and that the Israelis likely had a hand in his demise.
Hassanpour worked at Iran's main nuclear facility in Isfahan, according to the U.S.-funded Iranian radio station Radio Farda. He is believed to have played a key role in producing the gas needed to enrich uranium, a practice the international community has demanded that Iran cease.
The cause of Hassanpour's death was originally given as gas poisoning.
Israeli leaders have repeatedly threatened to use all means at their disposal to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Iran maintains that its nuclear program is for civilian purposes only.
Only the bad developed nations are the ones killing innocent people. Iran has bad intentions with a nuclear weapon. When was the last time Russia, and the US actually said they would nuke some country into the stone ages? And did they do it?
Give Iran the opportunity and they'll use it on their own people or surrounding countries.
Interesting perspective, but a wrong one. When has Israel threatened to annihilate Iran?
Iran has what intentions with a what weapon? The U.S. said they would bomb Pakistan into the stone age - Pakistan capitulated. Threatening nuclear attack (US saying no options are off the table is just that) is illegal.
How do you know what Iran would do? Are you one of the clerics who hold real power there? Tell Mahmoud to chill out! Too bad suspecting someone of a crime isn't basis to kill them... and I believe The pres of iran said 'Israel's government should be wiped from the pages of history' but my Farsi sucks.
All I said was punish, not annihilate, I doubt Israel would destroy Iran, just attack it with missiles, nukes and destroy much of the nation's ability to produce its own energy. Crippling.
Do you believe that Iran has the same agenda toward Israel?
