Radioactive ‘Dirty Bomb’ Ingredients Stolen In Mexico

 

 

 

 

 

” The UN’s atomic energy watchdog today announced that a truck carrying dangerous radioactive material has been stolen in Mexico, adding that the material could be used to produce a dirty bomb. As AFP reports, the truck was carrying the material from a hospital in Tijuana to a waste center before it was stolen near Mexico City. Suspects have yet to be named, though Mexican authorities have alerted the public and are currently investigating.”

 

 

 

 

    But there is no need to secure our border . What could possibly go wrong letting our southern boundary be open to all comers ?

 

 

” The cobalt-60 material onboard was used for medical purposes, and was properly sealed at the time of the robbery, the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a statement Wednesday. It could be “extremely dangerous,” however, if the thieves remove or damage the shielding. Cobalt-60 is a synthetic radioactive isotope used in a variety of industrial applications and for medical radiotherapy. It is usually held in medical containers that prevent people from being exposed for strong radiation.”

Nuclear Iran A Month Away, With Obama, Bush To Blame

 

 

 

” A top independent nuclear expert now believes the regime in Tehran could have enough fuel to build an atomic weapon in about a month. Both the Obama and Bush administrations saw this day coming.

Renowned physicist David Albright is hardly a neocon hawk. A decade ago, in the run-up to the Iraq War, he accused the George W. Bush administration of misleading journalists with questionable evidence of Iraqi uranium enrichment for the sake of “a short-term political goal: to convince people that Saddam Hussein is close to acquiring nuclear weapons.”

“Today, Iran could break out most quickly using a three-step process” and could produce a significant quantity of weapon-grade uranium “in as little as approximately 1.0—1.6 months,” it said.

   The video we chose to accompany the story is a month old and so is a little behind , yet offers a clear picture of a fanatical regime that is VERY close to realizing it’s abhorrent ambitions . The editorial takes into account many new developments of the past few weeks that point to a greatly accelerated rate of progress on the Iranian’s uranium enrichment program.

   The closing paragraph offers little hope that our present leadership has anything new to offer in the way handling this simmering crisis as Obama continues to labor under the typical progressive assumption that he is negotiating with men of good faith .

 

 

” This disaster need not have happened. Obama could have taken the side of the Iranian people in the summer of 2009 when the regime bloodily quashed demonstrations against its fanatical Islamist rule. But he was wedded to the notion that he could talk Iran’s mullahs into sanity, if only he could meet face to face with them.”
