Stuxnet virus attack: Russia warns of ‘Iranian Chernobyl'

Russian nuclear scientists are providing technical assistance to Iran's attempts activate the country's first nuclear power plant at the Gulf port.

But they have raised serious concerns about the extensive damage caused to the plant's computer systems by the mysterious Stuxnet virus, which was discovered last year and is widely believed to have been the result of a sophisticated joint US-Israeli cyber attack.

According to Western intelligence reports, Russian scientists warned the Kremlin that they could be facing "another Chernobyl" if they were forced to comply with Iran's tight deadline to activate the complex this summer.

The D.U. contamination we find in the Middle East is already a disaster and this would be worse ! The most destructive rogue states are Israel and the USA. They must be held to account as much as any other nations. Without justice there can be no peace !
