    Has War with Iran already begun?


    A Washington-based research group has released a satellite image showing an "extensively damaged" Iranian missile base two weeks after an explosion at the site was reported.

    Paul Brannan, a senior analyst for the Institute for Science and International Security, which specializes in nuclear weapons programs, said some of the buildings at the compound near the city of Bid Kaneh appear to be completely destroyed following the Nov. 12 explosion, which Iranian authorities characterized as an accident.

    "Some of the destruction seen in the image may have also resulted from subsequent controlled demolition of buildings and removal of debris," Brennan said in a statement. "There do not appear to be many pieces of heavy equipment such as cranes or dump trucks on the site, and a considerable amount of debris is still present."

    As such, Brennan said most of the damage seen in the image likely resulted from the Nov. 12 explosion.

    ISIS officials recently learned that the blast occurred as Iran achieved a "major milestone" in the development of a new missile. Iran was apparently performing a "volatile procedure" involving a misile engine at the site when the blast occurred, Brennan said.

    I guess they're calling it an accident. But who really knows what's going on?

    I have no difficulty believing they likely did blow themselves up.

    Wont argue with you on that. They are dealing with some very dangerous stuff. Anything's possible.

    I hope so.

    Actually, I don't care if it was Mossad or another black op. In fact, I hope it was an inside job of sabotage. That's a better sign if it is.
