Exploding Iranian nuclear scientists

Someone is purposely killing Iranian scientists, or perhaps as Jonah Goldberg suggests they have become the Spinal Tap drummers of the regime. Either way, it is good news for the rest of the planet.

According to press reports, another Iranian nuclear scientist was killed in a bomb attack:

The bomb assassination of an Iranian atomic scientist on Wednesday will not stop “progress” in Iran’s nuclear programme, Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi told state television. “Today (Wednesday) those who claim to be combatting terrorism have targeted Iranian scientists. They should know that Iranian scientists are more determined than ever in striding towards Iran’s progress,” he said. He called Wednesday’s killing of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a deputy director of Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility, “evidence of (foreign) government-sponsored terrorism.”

The list of suspects for this is rather short, starts with Moss and ends with ad. I wish I could include the US on the list, but I don't think that our current leadership considers the Iranians worthy of a gutsy call. I would love to be proven wrong on this as the most dangerous destabilizing thing I can imagine is a nuclear-armed Iran.

Unfortunately that sentiment is not shared by President Obama, or if it is he does a magnificent job of hiding it. He began his attempts at rapprochement with the Mullahs shortly after his inauguration, sending love letters and making videos extolling his deep respect for their rapacity and oppression, their desire to show sweetness & light.

but rather through peaceful actions that demonstrate the true greatness of the Iranian people and civilization."

"And the measure of that greatness is not the capacity to destroy, it is your demonstrated ability to build and create," Obama says.

Yeah, how is that going for so far? Even the Russians have had to acknowledge that the Iranians are not playing straight. Economic sanctions are a piece of the puzzle, Ron Paul's foolish statments about them being acts of war aside. But that alone will not stop the madness. There is no good answer to this, but I think the more unexplained explosions the better.
