cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Iran defuses bomb on Tehran-bound plane

Iranian security officials successfully manage to defuse a bomb on a Tehran-bound passenger airliner, averting what could have been a major airborne catastrophe.

Within minutes from take-off, flight security officials aboard a late Saturday Kish Air flight en route to Tehran from the southern city of Ahvaz, discovered that a handmade bomb had been planted in the plane's toilet, Fars news agency reported on Sunday.

After an emergency return to Ahvaz airport, all 131 passengers were safely evacuated.

Bomb disposal squad and security personnel arrived just in time to defuse the explosive device before it caused serious casualties.


This missing Air France case is highly suspicious, kind of reminds me of the JFK Jr. case and Paul Wellstone plane, other planes that had mysterious catastrophic failures. I wonder who was on board. - Ed.

Air France plane lost: official say 'no hope' of finding airliner

Officials said they had "no hope" for Air France Flight 447 which dropped off the radar three hours and less than 200 miles into a flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris.

As the Brazilian air force mounted a search and rescue operation for the Airbus 330-200k in the waters around the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha, families of passengers gathered at a crisis centre in Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport awaiting news.

The Foreign Office said it was "urgently" seeking news on whether there were any Britons on board.

Air France said that the aircraft had sent a message reporting an electrical "short circuit" after strong turbulence.

The company said the plane had probably been struck by lightning.

An Airbus source described the failure as "catastrophic" suggesting a sudden and unexplained systems failure.
