Iranian Mystery Explosions
July 25, 2008
Eh, it appears as though there are mysterious explosions happening in Iran. Couple this with a media blackout, reports of covert operations in Iran, and you’ve got the makings of a VERY juicy story. Although, when will we learn?? Do we always have to be destabilising “bad” regimes and propping up ones more…conducive to our interests?
For an organisation that prides itself on being a well-run administrative machine, the leadership of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards is having a rather testing time. It’s not just last Saturday’s mysterious explosion in a suburb of Tehran that killed 15 people that is causing the leadership sleepless nights, although the nationwide news black-out imposed immediately afterwards does suggest the Revolutionary Guards, the storm troops of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, are rattled.
Details are only now starting to reach the outside world, and it looks increasingly like sabotage was responsible for devastating a military convoy as it travelled through Khavarshahar. The company responsible for moving the equipment, LTK, is owned by the Revolutionary Guards and is suspected of being involved in shipping arms to Lebanon’s Hizbollah Shia Muslim militia, which is trained and funded by Tehran.
