Sabotage in Iran's nuclear program?

A massive explosion at an Iranian missile base, and indications that a crippling computer virus may have struck some of the country's industrial computers, are just some of the latest indications that efforts to sabotage Iran's nuclear program from the outside may be underway. Jill Dougherty reports.

    "Truth is treason in the empire of lies." - Ron Paul

    Only Ron Paul, of all the presidential candidates of both major parties, has repeatedly spoken out clearly and forcefully against the belligerent war propaganda and calculated lies in the bipartisan lead up to war with Iran, against the bipartisan campaign for punitive sanctions against Iran, and against further covert operations to destabilize the fragile geopolitical situation in the Mideast. He is not afraid to speak truth to power.

    The principled constitutionalist and noninterventionist Paul was right from the start about our disastrous preemptive imperial wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, right from the start about the destructive 'blowback' fomenting more hatred directed towards America, right from the start about the Federal Reserve's monetary policies creating the housing bubble which led to the 2008 financial meltdown, right from the start about the War on Drugs, the USA Patriot Act and the TSA imposing a fascist police state upon the American people.

    Ron Paul 2012.

    Right Then.

    Right Now.

    Right For America.

      This has been a paid political advertisement. The wording of the message is identical to all others like it for a reason...it is not individual thought, but rather a propaganda message.

    99% of the people may not beleive me but I am confident that Iran , Israel and USA will become once again very close friends and allies ; the problem is that saudi dictators and kuwaits dictators are so jelouse about this matter and they really are afraid by Iran that they do anything possible to invole Israel and USA in another war just to save their lasy asses .This is the truth , Itran is a productive and vast country which could be so close to Israel and USA just like before.I am so sorry that carter destroyed everything,he misclaculated everything and he helped an idiot like khomeini to arrive iran and to totally blow up everything.Carter must think about what he did , he does not deserve the Nobel prize for peace.

    If iran didnt have such a pathetic ruler, i wouldn't worry so much, but he seems to defy all efforts to cease and desist on creating wmds. I dont think a rattlesnake would bite him, just out of professional courtesy

      They tried that about two years ago. It didn't go well for them. The U.S. and Israel have people on the ground in Iran causing all kinds of headaches though, not to mention extensive cyberwarfare (stuxnet has some amazing potential down the pike) from abroad as well. Expect more of the same until Iran can find a way to subtly cry "uncle".

    Well who wouldn't want to end this. We have no idea what they would use this for. If Iran were to successfully produce a warhead then countries could be at risk of attack with the right conditions.
