Most likely one of the IRGC men was smoking while moving explosives to a near by truck.Iranians can be very lax.

Actually this is the second weapons depot "accident" recently

Much like the regime in North Korea wasting all of the people's resources on building a regime military, driving public into starvation, Iranian's too will fall into decline as cleric's waste capital and resources on a massive military buildup, for nothing. Declining social services, high inflation, rising unemployment etc.

Iranians have a brief window of opportunity now before the door closes and they become hosatges of their own creation, quite similar to the fate of North Koreans. Sound improbable? ask the average Iranian if their children will be prosperous under an extreme mullahtocracy- the public is already in decline.

The suspicion of sabotage is strengthened by the occurrence Friday of a big fire at a Tehran warehouse used according to our sources by the IRGC to store crowd dispersal gear.
The ammo base blown up Saturday in the town of Melard in Shahryar district contained large quantities of rubber bullets, tear gas and other ordnance. A short time later, the second explosion hit a light arms depot at a military camp at Bidganeh several kilometers away. That both were accidents is hardly credible.
The two blasts were confirmed by the Iranian lawmaker Hossein Garussi without further details.

One of the armed dissident groups the Iranian authorities recently broke up was Oghab. Three members were executed and the others were allowed to flee the country. An organization of that name operates in the United States, but its leader denies involvement in any sabotage operations inside Iran.

Israel & US just went to highest alert, will Iran make a move?


Brig. Hassan Moghadam, head of Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) missile development and sections of its nuclear program, was killed in one of the two consecutive explosions that hit two IRGC bases 46 kilometers west of Tehran Saturday, Nov. 12. The official fatality figure is 32. Fourteen hours after explosions blasts could still be heard and fires raged.

The Moadarres facility was the first to be hit, while the second and bigger blast occurred at Amir-al-Mo'menin.

Their force was such that the Iranian Red Crescent rushed 45 ambulances to the two facilities plus 23 buses converted to first-aid vehicles and a helicopter to evacuate the critically injured.

However, only six rescue workers were given access to the Moadarres base and none were permitted to enter to enter Amir-al-Mo'menin because of the facility's sensitivity.

Fourteen hours after the explosions, the blasts continued and fires raged. Surrounding streets were closed and reporters kept away from the scene.

Our sources report increasing evidence that the first explosion was caused by a failed effort to mount a nuclear warhead on a Shahab-3 intermediate-range missile.

It was powerful enough to shatter windows and damage shops in Tehran. People gathering on street corners wondered if Israel had attacked Iran's nuclear sites or destroyed Revolutionary Guards missile bases. They recalled Supreme Ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's threat Thursday, Nov. 10 to take the war to the streets of Tel Aviv if Tehran was attacked.

IRGC spokesman, Brig. Ramedan Sharif, sharply denied what he said was speculation that the military base was linked to Iran's nuclear program. "This blast is not related to any nuclear tests," he said in response to widespread rumors. He insisted the explosion had occurred at an ammo store which was part of the Guards' "self-sufficiency" system, a term they apply to their munitions plants and the factories manufacturing missile components.

The Iranian authorities, after raising the fatality figure to 32, withheld information on the injured, most of which where transferred to IRGC rather than civilian hospitals. Some may have been foreign engineers or scientists whose presence Tehran is anxious to conceal.

The Emergency Council which deals with extraordinary happenings liable to affect the regime's stability met in emergency session Saturday night.

Earlier Saturday, two huge explosions at two separate military bases west of Tehran killed dozens of Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), wounding many more and trapping an unknown number under rubble.

In Tehran, 40 kilometers away, windows were shattered and damage caused vehicles and shops. The blasts were heard in Tehran's center.

RIP. Looks like moving old ammo caused it. Some of the bunkers that hold the Sepah and Artesh munitions date back to Jange tahmili era of 80's and are being relocated for that very reason. Iran has dispersed most of the urban weapons centers to more secure remote locations. Unfortunately these accidents happen can and do happen in all nations as moving around unstable ammo is dangerous.

GDP? Iran derives most of its income from oil sales. W/O oil, the people are broken... and the regime continues to pour money into military as average iranian slides deeper into societal decline- what do you think recent protests were about? Have the Iranian people finally been scared into a corner by their own "leadership"? No longer citizens, but becoming subjects.

GDP ! put down the video toys and get real, this is not a game son.

Quite similar moment to that experienced with North Korea in late 1990s... NK began advanced program with mountain bunker 25M NE of Yongbyon, called it a food storage facility- later tested 2 nuclear devices there-

Iranian Fordo is Yongbyon cave ver 2.0

North Korea "pulled out" of NPT, kicked out inspectors, and then conducted a nuclear bomb test (somehow converting the food in storage facilty into fissionable material)

Now Nov 12 2011, "Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in an open session of the parliament on Sunday blasted the Agency for serving the US and Israeli policies on Iran, specially in its latest report, and announced that the Iranian legislature should soon start reviewing the country's future cooperation with the IAEA.

Iranian Parliament to Study Withdrawal from NPT
TEHRAN (FNA)- Parliamentary sources revealed on Saturday (11-12-2011) that Iran's legislature is due to discuss the country's withdrawal from the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)

Play it again Sam... someday the Zetas in Mexico will have nuclear weapons ??-

Annon 9:13: The difference between natural disaster victims compared to the explosions at the IRGC base have absolutely nothing in common. The IRGC are behind the terrorist regime trying to make nuclear weapons which Amadinejad openly and very often declares wants to use them to wipe Israel off the map. I have no sympathy for terrorists killed by their own stupidity who openly declare their use of nuclear weapons against another country.

YOU ARE WRONG-in reply to anon-14th-1:41


reply one

When did the Iranian leader say that Iran would use nuclear arms to wipe Israel off the map? I WOULD BE VERY GRATEFULL IF YOU SHOWED A SOARCE OF YOU CLAIM.

reply two

when you say victims of accidents that are naural and victims of explossions that are not natural don;t share identity is like saying the guards killed themselves!!or what exactly are you teaching us?

reply three

Iran has no terrorist regime in place as you wish it.had Ian been a terrorit regime it would'nt be allowed to attend UN meetings,or maybe it would not have diplomatic conacts with world Nations.EVEN ITS ACH-FOE ISRAEL AND THE US they have neve classified or used these terms on Iran!.

reply four

your lack of sympathy -this one i leave it to yourself because i don't know the abode of your heart be it in light or darkness!
