It was definetly U.S's attack.
If u guys read the news 2 days ago it was a news report about an F16 plane seen in Bushehr area(seen/taken pic by neighbourhood).IR denied it first but then the next day they announced they'll shoot the plane if it comes to the border again.

That plane is directly related to this missile.IR is just denying it bc they r chiken enough to admit they r being attacked!!!

General pasrsian may telling the truth. I also believe in Bavafa's thoery. It is close
to Iranian presidental election and if US has harmed Iran's nulclear plan badly US
can use it to tell mullahs they don't have a good card there if they think they do.
I believe very soon EU will arrange a meeting between US and Iran and in that
meeting it is very important for both parts to have good cards.
Notice also how there is no excietment about the presidental election in Iran in a time
very close to election. Once the election is bycotte as it seems to be then US and IRI alone must discuss who will be the next president.

Who do you guys think is playing a psychological game on whom?

"TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian television sent waves through world financial markets on Wednesday when it reported an explosion along the coast from Iran's only nuclear plant, but officials calmed fears saying the blast was part of construction work.

The report caused the U.S. stock market to drop briefly and sent oil prices higher, underscoring world jitters over Iran's nuclear program."

First you have to ask who started the rumor and second what were they trying to achieve by spreading that rumor?

The source of the "report/rumor" was Iran's TV (more specifically the 100% state-run TV station of Al-Alam). Why would IRI rush to spread an unsubstantiated rumor so fast in its state satellite channel, which broadcasts in Arabic?

One explanation could be that they wanted the rumor to be picked up by other Arab news agencies which in turn would spread the news much faster to the Western news agencies and cause panic in Western markets (as opposed to broadcasting the news in Iranian Farsi-channels which would first cause panic among Iranians before causing panic abroad). By doing so they've sent a message that if a rumor of one explosion 10 miles away from any important site could cause the markets to drop and oil to rise so fast, imagine what would happen if a real war were to be started.

but that's just one theory. other theories may very well be true as well.

Psywar keeps Tehran on tenterhooks
By B Raman


The third option is psywar, utilized with the aim of breaking the Iranian will so that the other two options become unnecessary. This option has no unacceptable risks, but its ability to produce the expected results is uncertain.

The US has already embarked on this option. The psywar is being waged at two levels - the political and the paramilitary. The political psywar, which is democracy-centric, is directed at the Iranian people and is being waged through Iranian dissidents in the US and elsewhere. It aims to keep alive and aggravate the divide between the reformists and the fundamentalist clerics and the liberals and the conservatives in Iranian civil society. It also seeks to exploit the already existing pockets of alienation inside Iran - and create more. The flow of US funds and sophisticated means of propaganda mounted from California and Iraq play an important role in this.

The paramilitary (covert) psywar, which is nuclear-centric, seeks to convey a message not only to Tehran, but also to Moscow, about the consequences of Iran pressing ahead on the nuclear path in disregard of the concerns of the US, other Western countries and Israel. This psywar is being waged from bases in Iraq and Pakistan. Its purpose is to create fear in the minds of Tehran and Moscow about the inevitability of US paramilitary action against Iran's nuclear establishments if they do not see reason and give up their present obduracy. The actions mounted by the US also seek to demonstrate its capability for paramilitary action, if it decides to act.

It is in this context that one has to view the reported mysterious blast at Dailam, which is in Bushehr province. The location of the blast is about 150 kilometers from the site where the Russians are constructing the nuclear-power stations.

Confusion in Tehran over the incident, which was reportedly spectacular without causing any human casualties, is evident from the contradictory statements emanating from Iran on the cause of the blast.

The Associated Press news agency quoted an Iranian Interior Ministry spokesman, Jahanbakhsh Khanjani, as saying, "An airplane flew over Dailam today. Minutes later, there was an explosion. But we have no reason to say it's a hostile attack. There is a big possibility that it was a friendly fire by mistake."

Iran's state TV al-Alam, which was the first to break the story, said the explosion was possibly caused by a rocket from an aircraft. Subsequently, it changed its version and said the blast might have been the result of an aircraft accidentally dropping its fuel tank.

Officials of Bushehr province, however, said the explosion was connected to "geophysical exploration" in the region, in connection with the construction of a dam.

A spokesperson of Iran's Supreme National Security Council said there was no incident and that people were stirring trouble with such reports. She reportedly said the council had declared that reports of a blast near the nuclear plant were just part of an ongoing campaign of psychological warfare against Iran.

Officials at the Russian Embassy in Tehran and at the Russian Ministry of Atomic Energy in Moscow - which is overseeing construction at the Bushehr nuclear plant - reportedly told CNN in a phone interview that there had been no explosion at the plant area itself.

Given the normal lack of transparency in Tehran, one may never know what really happened, but it is quite possible that the explosion was the result of a US air-mounted paramilitary (covert) operation meant to demonstrate the United States' ability to carry out such an operation without being detected and prevented by the Iranians, and at the same time convey a message to Tehran and Moscow of the seriousness of US concerns over the nuclear issue and its determination to put an end to Iran's clandestine nuclear plans.

By carrying out the strike in the same province in which the Russians are constructing the nuclear power stations, but away from the construction site, the Americans could have sought to convey their message without creating any international controversy due to human casualties and other damage
