Contradictory reports of an explosion at Iran’s uranium enrichment site have been emerging. Iran denies it ever happened, calling it “Western propaganda” while Israel confirms it, putting tensions around upcoming nuclear talks.
Reports of the explosion at the underground Fordow plant, near the city of Qom, central-northern Iran, originally surfaced on Friday after a former Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Reza Kahlili, published his report on the WND.com website.
Iran has denied the reports, while Israel and some of US media reported that the explosion occurred and caused significant damage.
The West has maintained that the Fordow plant (which was discovered in 2009) has been producing uranium enriched to 20 per cent fissile purity since late 2011, compared to the 3.5 per cent level required for nuclear energy plants, and has been operating 700 centrifuges there since the start of the year.
Explosion or not, Blair and Bush got their N and Q missed up.
In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Can they detect radiation in a nearby country's atmosphere?
Maybe Iran was caught with its hands in a radioactive cookie jar, but doesn't want to confess.
I think that earth and rock are the best shields against such radiation and this facility is deep enough that unless a radioactive gas is escaping from a vent, we wouldn't be able to detect it easily. Just a guess though. If it DID happen then Iran will strike back and then we'll know.
