Nuclear Earthquake

Could the killer earthquake in Iran have been caused by a secret nuclear test?

President Mohammad Khatami has denied that the killer quake that struck southeast Iran was caused by a secret nuclear test.

“These allegations have spread, but they are completely unfounded,” said the president, who on Monday and Tuesday visited the Bam region at the epicenter of the quake that he estimated could cost 50,000 lives.

Iran is building its first nuclear reactor but has repeatedly denied accusations from the United States and Israel that it has embarked on a covert nuclear arms program.

I would have tended to think that such an allegation was far-fetched, considering that Iran is prone to earthquakes. But this blatant lie from the Iranian president makes me inclined to think twice about the possibility.

There is no place for nuclear weapons in our religious tents or defense and security doctrine,” the Iranian president underlined.
