Iran Claims "Psychological Warfare" By Western Media

The mysterious explosion in southwestern Iran that caused conflicting media reports has given an indication of just how nervous the Iranian regime has become in its showdown with the civilized world over nuclear capabilities. Reactions from Iran to what is now being reported as a planned demolition at a dam under construction have ranged from pugnacious to hysterical.
Iran lambasted what it called foreign "psychological warfare" and warned on Thursday it would respond to any military strike after a blast near a nuclear site sparked fears of attack.
Rumors of the massive explosion being connected to an airplane continue, even from official Iranian outlets.
