Actually, no.

This is part of trump’s scorched earth strategy, as he knows Biden will re-enter the Iran nuclear agreement and overturn what trump did.

The meeting in Saudi with Pompeo and Netanyahu was no coincidence. The objective is to kick off conflict with Iran and fuck any chances of the Iran deal ever happening again.

However, this could backfire. If Iran does not respond, and the Iran deal starts again with the lifting of sanctions, it says “fuck you” to trump and Netanyahu, and makes the Iranian leadership look good with the population in Iran.

Not a smart move by the current administration, but they are not known for an over abundance of intelligence.

The scientist survived and was helped to defect.

If it was an assassination, the car would be more like Swiss cheese and/or in many many pieces.

The guard who got out, firing toward frame right is who left the pile of goo.
Likely shot from behind, frame left.

The driving guard was taken out with three rounds to the windshield and a followup shot exited his door, low center.

The exit rounds on the C pillar/high rear quarter are the shots killing the third guard in the backseat with the scientist.

The quarter window was broken out to unlock/open the back door.

This was a precision extraction...

...most likely Saudi led.

It is in their best interest to have a handle over the lunatics in the region...

...just as someone always has.

They are pretty clean about it and are very good at deception or making things appear to be different than they are.

Much nicer savagery.

what pic are you referring to?


Its hard to imagine that is anything more than just sour grapes retaliation. It seems doubful that assasinating a scientist this far down the road in their program would have much impact on the program.

It's the message that's effective more so than who was taken out

Everybody working on the program is shitting their pants right now

Must be a helluva commute between work and home

The science skills are secondary, how to enrich uranium has been known for a century. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, who know the science .

Turning knowledge into product isn't science, it's management. Getting from dirt to a deliverable nuclear weapon can't be done by somebody with a science book sitting in a garage.

If the guy had proteges, the technical knowledge base won't suffer much. If he was more of a loner, expect to see some North Koreans in Iran soon.

Hardliners in parliament are gearing up to revitalise Iran’s nuclear programme after scientist’s assassination.

predictable response

hard to imagin an "intelligence" agency not predicting that outcome... so what did they achieve?

Satellite-Controlled Machine Gun Mounted On A Pickup Truck Used To Assassinate Nuclear Scientist, Iran Says



the weapon, mounted in a pick-up truck, was able to fire at Fakhrizadeh without hitting his wife beside him.

so she lived? and the mess on the ground?

So some 19 year old in an easy chair in in front of a tv shooting people with machine guns?

Call of Duty come to life I guess.
