Iranian Satellite Blows Up on Launchpad: Were Americans Involved?

It’s no secret that the U.S. wants Iran to stop launching rockets, or anything else that implies improved payload delivery activity.  But just how far will America go to make its point?

Just before its scheduled launch on Thursday, an Iranian rocket carrying a satellite exploded on its launch pad at Imam Khomeini Space Center in northern Iran.

An Iranian official told Reuters:

“It was due to some technical issues and it exploded but our young scientists are working to fix the problem.”

The United States, Iran’s long time foe, fears long-range ballistic technology used to put satellites into orbit could also be used to launch nuclear warheads.

Tehran denies the U.S. accusation that such activity is a cover for ballistic missile development.

This isn’t the first time the Iranians have had trouble getting payload into space.

An Iranian attempt to launch a satellite failed in January, Iran’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi said.

The failed rocket launch comes at the same time that the U.S. and Iran are engaged in a cyber war as reported by The New York Times, trading software attacks.  It’s possible the U.S. has infiltrated the Iranian space software, although there is no way to confirm or disprove such a thing.

    And your point is? So what if we have infiltrated Iran’s software. Do we want to wake up one fine morning in the good old USofA and find out we are dead?

    Iranian leadership is so corrupt and determined to keep the USA in its cross hairs to falsely developed propaganda to its people it is unreal. When any government sponsors terrorism both domestic and abroad up to and including death to individuals there is a problem with leadership. In the case of Iran, the Persians, they have had hundreds of years of historical evidence that their leadership has remained aggressive toward all whom they can claim are enemies, justified or not. They need an enemy to force their focus on and keep the population to conform to their beliefs. The only way this will stop is to go after their leadership and they know it. They constantly surround their leaders with human shields no matter where they go. Fear is their main control and emphasized with public executions as in hanging from cranes, firing squads, decapitation, and other barbaric methods of population control. With this type of fear control, no question of their rule can ever take place.

    Iran is run by a form of muslime dictatorship masking as a form of religion. They explode bombs at weddings, Christian Churches, marketplaces hoping to kill as many as possible, including women and children.
