Personally, I think it was just a brake line failure

The above picture is of what is left of Mostafa Roshan's car.  Professor Roshan is, excuse me, was the director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in central Iran.  Uranium enrichment is a prerequisite for making a nuclear weapon.  Of course, the Iranians overreact to every little thing and are blaming Israeli agents for "preventing progress."  The Israelis deny everything, though according to one US inteligence source, the denials come with a smile.  Personally, I am sticking to my brake line failure theory.  After all, that seems to happen a lot to cars being driven by Iranian nuclear scientists.
