Israel, Earthquakes, and massive explosions at Iran nuclear and advanced missile sites, time to worry?

A mysterious and massive explosion rocked a military arms depot near Tehran in November 2011, killing 17 Revolutionary Guards Corps officers and wounding 17 others. In October 2010, a similar blast took place at a Revolutionary Guards munitions store in Khoramabad, in western Iran, killing and wounding several servicemen. Tuesday's report of explosions came days after Israel allegedly carried out two air strikes in Syria over the weekend, targeting Iranian-supplied Fateh-110 surface-to-surface missiles destined for Hezbollah.

  *Iran: Earthquake felt near Bushehr plant: A moderate earthquake was felt in the vicinity of the Iranian head nuclear power plant in Bushehr. Iranian official news agency reports that the epicenter, with a preliminary magnitude of 5.1, was centered near Kaki, about 100 km North-East of Bushehr.

Gulf countries meet over very real Iran nuclear radiation fears:

Listen to this article. Powered by Odiogo.com

They have good reason to be concerned. Iran's nuclear facilities were built so that if there was a leak it would affect the Arabs and not Iran. Iran is on a major fault line and experiences many major earthquakes. Also some of these facilities are antiquated and built by us. Most do not know or realize Iran has an aging nuclear facility or that the US built it, ironic isn't it?

Iran's aging nuclear facility

Atom's for peace was a program started by the US to build nuclear facilities for Pakistan and Iran. Rather ironic isn't it? The Tehran Research Reactor is an aging nuclear facility located in the heart of the Iranian capital. It was built by the United States as a nuclear research facility 40 years ago; it is now at the center of Iran's claims that it needs nuclear fuel for peaceful purposes only. The reactor makes radioactive materials for use in hospitals - for example in the treatment of cancer.

We gave them their start!

The nuclear program of Iran was launched in the 1950s with the help of the United States as part of the Atoms for Peace program.[1] The support, encouragement and participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the Shah of Iran. We are so concerned about Pakistan and Iran today in regard to nuclear abilities and nuclear weapons and security. I was blown away to find out that we built the first nuclear Reactors in both Iran and Pakistan. Nuclear program of Iran - atoms for peace Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Gulf Corporation Council “Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman. And the United Arab Emirates, who are all incidentally armed by us with advanced conventional weapons and technology and missile defense batteries all want the Middle East to be declared a nuclear safe zone. That as you know is DOA as neither Israel or the US will never agree to that. The centuries of acrimony and convoluted Relationships throughout the Middle East though I knew of it is mind boggling and worse than I thought so I invite you to read the report it is eye opening.
Why Arab leaders worry about Iran's nuclear program

Because of the past with years of acrimony between Arabs and Persians "Iran" and the fact that Russia built Bushehr so Arab Nations fear another Chernobyl Arab Nations have great fear of Iran's nuclear program not to speak of the fear of Israel or the US attacking the facilities. They rightly fear the fallout as it will most likely fall on them and not Iran.

The location of the Bushehr nuclear reactor, less than 2 miles from the Persian Gulf and closer to six Arab capitals (Kuwait, Riyadh, Manama, Doha, Abu Dhabi and Muscat) than it is to Tehran, is a serious problem. Any nuclear accident would be an ecological disaster.

The Persian Gulf, the only source of water for Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, would be contaminated, leaving those countries without drinking water. Meanwhile, the air contamination would spread to most of the populations who live downwind of the reactor.

"The main problem in the Iranian issue is concern for the environment and future dangers, in the event of a nuclear leak that could pollute the entire Gulf region. They feel very much out of control of their environmental future and between Russia, Iran, United States, and Israel, and all the fears they bring they have more than good reason.
With all that is getting ready to happen you can add this, it absolutely will be used: 
 Pentagon Bulks Up 'Bunker Buster' Bomb to Combat Iran: everal times in recent weeks, American officials, seeking to demonstrate U.S. capabilities, showed Israeli military and civilian leaders secret Air Force video of an earlier version of the bomb hitting its target in high-altitude testing, and explained what had been done to improve it, according to diplomats who were present. In the video, the weapon can be seen penetrating the ground within inches of its target, followed by a large underground detonation, according to people who have seen the footage. 
The newest version of what is the Pentagon's largest conventional bomb, the 30,000-pound Massive Ordnance Penetrator, or MOP, has adjusted fuses to maximize its burrowing power, upgraded guidance systems to improve its precision and high-tech equipment intended to allow it to evade Iranian air defenses in order to reach and destroy the Fordow nuclear enrichment complex, which is buried under a mountain near the Iranian city of Qom.
