After U.S. president Obama and Israel's prime minister Netanyahu in the sharpest form expressed their determination to wage war with Iran, Iranian leader Ahmadi Nejad called the international community for help. In the frame of an unfriendly exchange of opinion in the United Nations' General Assembly, now Russia's voice makes itself being heard:

俄称不希望对伊朗实施军事打击反对扩大制裁

Russia says it doesn't wish to carry out a military attack against Iran and opposes extended sanctions.


That is what Russia's deputy minister of foreign affairs, Sergei Ryabkov, said according to a quotation in China News Network 中新网 on September 29, 2012.

里亚布科夫表示,我们希望,今年年底和明年都不会对伊朗实施任何打击。

Ryabkov stated: "We hope there won't be any attack carried out against Iran [till] the end of this year and next year."

任何军事对抗的决定只会摧毁可能就伊核相关问题达成共识而出现的希望。

Whatever military confrontation will be decided, it can only destroy hopes of an agreement probably to be reached on the interrelated questions of Iran's nuclear [program].

Iran's Intranet



According to Al-Jazeera TV on September 29, 2012, Iran is planning to install a nationwide intranet. Up to now, 10.000 computers should already be linked to that net which makes it impossible to attack them via internet.

Virus infection of electronic control devices, needed in the enrichment process of uranium, had caused damage to Iran's enrichment program some time ago. The internet virus Stuxnet that succeeded to infiltrate computers at a nuclear research facility and physically damaged a certain number of uranium centrifuges, is said to have originated from the U.S. and Israel.

As a side-effect, the nationwide installation of an intranet would enable Iranian authorities to enjoy a better control of private computers in its country, even more as it is still unclear whether the world-wide-web would be allowed to exist side by side with the new national computer network.


Above: Siemens Simatic S7-300 PLC CPU with three I/O modules attached. Such are the controlling units for gas centrifuges used in an Iranian plant for the enrichment of uranium. Stuxnet was able to infect the host and changed the operational conditions of three attached centrifuge motors to "unsafe operation". That means a constant change from very low frequency of rotation to a very high frequency exceeding that of normal operation. Of course, such treated centrifuges broke down very soon.
