War with Iran

Postby Giant Communist Robot » Mon Oct 01, 2007 2:49 pm

I read on a futures forum that the Russians left the Bushah nuclear plant in a hurry. The speculation is that they have been informed of an attack coming from either the US or Isreal. I think they must have read some of Bush's speeches in the newspapers.

We need to look for weapons of mass destruction, etc., and so on, in Iran.

Oh Lord I hope not.

Please let it be as simple as this:

Moscow has delayed the start-up of Iran's first nuclear power station to 2008 because Tehran has fallen behind with payments for the Bushehr plant, a top Russian official said on Thursday.

Or maybe, after seeing how effective a Russian state-of-the-art anti-aircraft system worked (or didn't) in Syria has led them to consider how safe a Russian state-of-the-art nuclear power plant might be? :crazy:

I doubt seriously that the U.S. has plans for an invasion of Iran in the near future. Both the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were well telegraphed. Sneak attacks are not President Bush's style, unless there was evidence of an impending threat from Iran, which there doesn't seem to be at the moment.

Israel, on the other hand, may have plans. Their intelligence in the region is greater than ours, and Iran poses a greater threat to their nation than to ours. Even so, I doubt that they would telegraph news of an impending attack to the Russians, if one were pending. It would give the opportunity to Iran to beef up their air defenses.

It could simply be that Russia has perceived some threat to their workers' safety, perhaps from Iran itself, and withdrew them for that reason.

Of course, it could also simply be an erroneous rumour, and the workers could still be on site.

Considering their track record for safety, I would probably leave a Russian nuclear plant in a hurry too.
:lol:

War with Iran, will not happen.
if, if, ever US, goes to war with Iran,will have to be when the sunspot activity, will be at its highest.
High sunspot activity, will trigger violent activities in the human field.
Sunspot now is at its lowest.
