Rumor Central: Iran Nuke Bomb Explosion?

The blog Anti-Mullah ("Dedicated to the removal of the Islamic Regime in Iran") reported the following yesterday:
Reports emanating from Iran on Wednesday indicate a huge explosion - reportedly NUCLEAR - from the Kerman area at the edge of the Kavir Lut (major desert).

I waited to get confirmation of the event that was felt a 100 kilometers away but apart from on the ground phone reports, the local Islamic Iranian news media reported that an UFO had crashed and blown up to explain the incident.

The explosion took place at what would be the Islamic Regime's testing ground for an atomic weapon.

In any event, something huge happened, so far nobody has made any official comment.

Was it the Islamic Regime trying to copy North Korea and announce itself a nuclear power? Was it a test gone wrong? Was it a dress rehearsal or was it a single shot warning from the West that the regime was crossing the line?

Lots of questions but no good answers yet.

Again. Something huge happened.
Jawa reports the following additional report, provided by another anti-Iran regime blog SMCDDI:
A huge mysterious explosion rocked Iran's main south central region in the early morning of today.

The mysterious explosion is believed to have happened in the mountains located at about 100 KM of the city of Kerman.

So far no official explanation has been given despite the fact that the shake impact of the explosion was felt in a big part of the region.

Meanwhile, the semi-official Iranian news agency, FARS, reports:

Three giant explosions scared many people to death in the southwestern city of Khorramshahr in Khuzestan province Thursday morning.
No connection, though: Kerman, the site of the blast reported in Anti-Mullah is in central Iran. Khorramshahr is all the way across the country, near the shores of the Persian Gulf, right next door to Iraq.

Hmmm ... Iraq. That raises interesting questions about what really might be going on there: An explosion of a mine stockpile, as FARS reported, or something war-related.

Oops. I'm starting my own rumors.
