The United States has been forewarned for years about an American Hiroshima. The current administration turns a blind eye to unabated smuggling networks across the Mexican and Canadian borders so as to be politically correct. God only knows what else they are, and have been smuggling. Obama has yet to even call the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism. If anyone should doubt the reality of such an event happening, they should keep in mind what JFK had to say during his presidency 50 years ago:
“If things get too bad and war is inevitable,” he said, “they will set it off and that’s the end of the White House and the rest of the city.”
That’s right, you guessed it. The Soviets likely had a nuke in Washington DC.
This is not to ‘fear monger’ as superficial critics would say, but to be a watchman, warn and wake people up. God forbid this actually happens, and such an act (or any act of terrorism) will never be condoned here, but the threat is real. If they could do it then, the terrorists could do it now — especially with today’s technology at their disposal.
The United States today couldn’t be any more vulnerable than throughout its entire history, in a time of unprecedented danger throughout such a fractured world ready to fall into the abyss with even the slightest push. Stop trying to keep up with the Kardashians, disassociate yourself from the mindless shopping mall regime that America has become today, read your Bibles and wake up. We are living in extraordinary times.
Terrorist groups have acquired a “container” to smuggle uranium undetected past the global network of sensors to prevent a dirty bomb, the head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog has warned.
Speaking in London, Yukiya Amano of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said groups’ efforts to build a dirty bomb were becoming “more professional”.
It was particularly worrying, he said, that smuggling networks had hold of technology to evade sophisticated monitoring equipment designed to prevent proliferation of radioactive material.
“Terrorists having access to nuclear material is a real threat,” he said. “They have developed a particular container to put enriched uranium in as samples. The groups repeat [deliveries] to defeat the preventive measures. This is a real threat.”
Patricia Lewis, the head of the international security at Chatham House, said Mr Amano’s comments appeared to confirm suspicions that groups had got their hands on devices used by scientists to prevent radioactive emissions in transit.
“It is worrying because these containers can get past detectors,” she said. “We use these devices for security to block isotopes and you can certainly hide Highly Enriched Uranium in them. They can certainly get through the detectors.”
