Mexico on HIGH ALERT after radioactive material ‘capable of creating DIRTY BOMB’ is stolen

This certainly isn’t the first time this has happened in Mexico, and certainly won’t be the last.

THE MEXICAN government has placed nine states on high alert after radioactive material capable of creating a dirty bomb was stolen near the nation’s second largest city.

The Iridium 192, a potentially highly unstable material used in radiography equipment, was stolen on the outskirts of tourist hotspot Guadalajara.

Luis Felipe Puente‏, head of national emergency services, placed nine states on high alert after the material disappeared just half a day’s drive from the Texan border. Continue reading

(TRUNEWS) Texas Game Warden’s have begun training to counter the potential threat that terrorists could use the Port of Houston to smuggle radioactive material into the United States.

In an interview with local news, Tom Harvey, the Deputy Director for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Departments Communications Division, said Friday that “game wardens encounter all kinds of things on their patrols, including a lot of illegal fishing, and this [the threat of terrorists smuggling radioactive material] is a new threat we’re gearing up to be able to address.”

Harvey said that the Port of Houston has for years had radiation detectors to scan cargo, but now “we’ve acquired about a hundred devices that allow game wardens to detect radiological or nuclear emissions. These are little devices that can be worn on someone’s belt.”

Mexico issues alert after theft of radioactive material

Five Mexican states were put on alert Sunday after a truck carrying a container of potentially dangerous radioactive material was stolen, the interior ministry said.

The National Coordination of Civil Protection issued the warning after a company in the central state of Queretaro reported that a pick-up truck carrying radioactive iridium-192 had been stolen. Continue reading

The strange trend of Mexican thieves stealing radioactive material by accident

This resembles exactly what Soviet defector Col. Stanislav Lunev had warned about. It was his job as a Soviet agent to locate critical and strategic locations within the United States for detonating compact Russian nuclear weapons. Russia would then use ‘mules’ to bring these devices across the porous border, either unwittingly or knowingly. These same people were soon executed after their delivery reached its destination.

This also eerily similar to what Soviet defector Viktor Suvorov describes as “grey terror” during the “overture phase” (the phase preluding an imminent Soviet attack on America) in his book “Spetsnaz. The Story Behind the Soviet SAS” in chapter 15, Spetsnaz’s First World War.

Here is an excerpt:

The overture is carried by agents of the secret services of the Soviet satellite countries and by mercenaries recruited by intermediaries. The principal method employed at this stage is ‘grey terror’, that is, a kind of terror which is not conducted in the name of the Soviet Union. The Soviet secret services do not at this stage leave their visiting cards, or leave other people’s cards. The terror is carried out in the name of already existing extremist groups not connected in any way with the Soviet Union, or in the name of fictitious organisations.

The GRU reckons that in this period its operations should be regarded as natural disasters, actions by forces beyond human control, mistakes committed by people, or as terrorist acts by organisations not connected with the Soviet Union.

The terrorist acts carried out in the course of the ‘overture’ require very few people, very few weapons and little equipment. In some cases all that may be needed is one man who has as a weapon nothing more than a screwdriver, a box of matches or a glass ampoule. Some of the operations can have catastrophic consequences. For example, an epidemic of an infectious disease at seven of the most important naval bases in the West could have the effect of halving the combined naval might of the Soviet Union’s enemies.

Call it what you want or even laugh all you want, nuclear terrorism in America is a real threat. Smuggling radioactive material is not an accident and as the article says, has been done quite often.

Even JFK was concerned about smuggled Soviet nuclear weapons and believed they had one blocks away from the White House.

And today, the threat remains.

When 541,000 illegal aliens from wherever are given SSNs between 2012 and 2014 alone, it’s of grave concern. Professional military trainers fluent in Russian are crossing the border, IRGC terrorist cells are already in Mexico and ISIS is now thought to be camped out right on the border. This is not opinion, this is fact.

MEXICO CITY — It’s like a glitch in the Internet, a skipping needle on the vinyl of world news.

The same strange and very specific crime story keeps repeating itself in Mexico: Car thieves steal a load of dangerous radioactive material without knowing what they’ve taken, setting off a brief public health scare and a scramble to find the goods. For at least the third time in the past year and a half, Mexican authorities late Wednesday were warning that pilfered hazmats were on the loose.

Three Stolen Trucks With Radioactive Material Recovered in Mexico

If it hasn’t happened already, it’s only a matter of time before this type of material gets smuggled across the Mexican border into the U.S. and turned into a dirty bomb. Radioactive material has also been found in Mexico in 2014 and 2013.

 

Three trucks transporting Iridium-192 were found soon after they were stolen in the first such incident this year.

Mexican authorities found three trucks transoprting potentially deadly radioactive material shortly after they were stolen, the Associated Press reports, citing local officials. Continue reading
