The Prophets Are Concerned … Are You?

ISIS Has Uranium; Terrorists Who Crucify People Have Nuclear Material: Are We Concerned Yet?

ISIS Has Seized Uranium From Iraq

ISIS has 88 pounds of U-238 uranium, and no matter how much anyone tries to downplay the weapons capability or their ability to manufacture a nuclear device, the United States and the rest of the world really needs to start getting concerned enough to do something about it, preferably sometime yesterday.Earlier today, The Inquisitr reported that ISIS (aka the Islamic State or the Caliphate) got its hands on uranium in Iraq.Stop and let that sink in. ISIS has U-238 uranium. In other words, the people who did this:

Now have access to this:

U-238 uranium is poisonous and can be depleted and weaponized if sufficient amounts are obtained.

Are we concerned yet? Because that means that ISIS has the materiel they need to cause this:
Drill designed to train responders to deal with the aftermath of a dirty bomb.

And this:

ISIS now has material that could potentially be used to make a dirty bomb.

Meanwhile, our President has another pressing pool and beer meeting to attend:

Perhaps someone will remind Mr. Obama that the future of humanity is not a game:

How is it that the Russians, who are in negotiations to help nearby Iran to build more nuclear reactors, have more clarity on this than the United States, whose officials have largely downplayed the potential for weaponization? Iran has also called for the destruction of the United States and Israel while supplying arms, money and assistance to every major terrorist organization on the planet.
According to the Fox News report, Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich put it this way:
“The sheer fact that the terrorists… show unmistakable interest in nuclear and chemical materials is, of course, very alarming.”
On the other hand, what exactly did we EXPECT a well organized, militarized band of terrorists whose stated aim is to subdue the entire world under the oppressive yoke of their repressive brand of Islam would be interested in? Daisies and chocolates?
Of course, they have unmistakable interest in nuclear and chemical weapons, and of course, we should be concerned about it… concerned enough to do something other than watch them takeover the Middle East one village, one city, one nation at a time.
In case you missed it, ISIS is not your run of the mill cave dwelling terrorist looking to steal an airplane and fly it into the tallest building they can find — as horrible as that is. ISIS is drawing in not only the so-called marginalized, impoverished Muslim men, but also Muslims who have been raised in the West, educated in the West’s universities and who have enough marketing and tech savvy to promote their global jihad by social media, as reported earlier by TheInquisitr.
Are you really comfortable with the fact that we don’t think any of the Western raised, Western university educated terrorists in ISIS has the know-how to weaponize this uranium or are we going to wait until they blowup a dirty bomb to realize that ISIS is our problem?
Are we also willing to abandon millions of innocent Iraqis to the tender mercies of a band of murderous psychopaths after George Bush And Dick Cheney laid waste to their country? Mr. Obama, have you no shame?

Iraq Requests Outside Help After ISIL Seizes Nuclear Materials

—The Iraqi government has asked for international assistance after Sunni militants from the group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) seized nuclear material from a university in Mosul, Iraq’s second-biggest city, which they overran in June. But weapons experts are playing down any major threat from the seizure.

The Iraqi government warned Thursday that the militants had seized up to 40 kilograms of uranium compounds from Mosul University. The speed of the Iraqi military’s retreat from the rebels has left many sites unsecured, says Afzal Ashraf, counterterrorist expert at the Royal United Services Institute.

“There really wasn’t time for them to do anything.  And I don’t think anybody ever really had a contingency plan,” he said. “And that’s something else that might come out of this, is to think about the sorts of things that you might want to protect in the event that a city or a town falls.”

Baghdad’s appeal

In a letter to the United Nations, Baghdad appealed for international help to “stave off the threat” of the use of the nuclear material by terrorists in Iraq or abroad; but, the International Atomic Energy Agency says the material is low grade and does not pose a significant risk.

Still, Ashraf thinks the material could be used in a so-called “dirty bomb.”

“But what they could do if they were minded to do that, and with a little bit of expertise, is to make what people call a ‘dirty bomb.’  And that’s a conventional bomb where you pack some of this radioactive material around it so that when you explode this bomb, you contaminate a whole area around there,” he said.

The ISIL militants are also in control of an unused chemical weapons factory northwest of Baghdad; but experts say the munitions are degraded and unusable.

Mobilizing together

A month after the rebels began their advance, the Iraqi government appears so far unable to wrest back the territory it lost.

That will require engagement with local Sunnis alongside a military offensive, said Ranj Alaaldin of the London School of Economics.

“Much will depend on how the Iraqi state responds; whether that’s with the Iranians, or the Turks, or the Americans even,” he said. “And whether they can sustain or try to influence events in the Sunni Arab north, perhaps with the support of local tribes or moderate Sunni actors.”

But the Baghdad government appears even more divided. Iraq’s Kurdish politicians announced a boycott of Cabinet meetings Thursday, after Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki accused the northern autonomous Kurdish region of harboring the Sunni militants.

Observers say the dispute increases the likelihood that the Kurdistan regional government will attempt to break away from the Iraqi state.
