Posted on 04/15/2012 12:16:10 PM PDT by Razzz42
The US Military is currently seeking a large amount of potassium iodide, this according to a listing on the FBO.gov website by the Defense Logistics Agency.
In the listing it is made clear that they want to be ready in the event of nuclear fallout which has lead many to speculate that this could be in response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster or perhaps in anticipation for an attack on an active Iranian nuclear facility.
The DLA is apparently looking for upwards of 400,000 dollars worth of the thyroid protecting tablets at a time when many government officials have openly told American citizens NOT to buy potassium iodide.
In an article published by Business Insider on March 10th, some of the possibilities as to why this order has been put in were explored.
The U.S. has bought potassium iodide tablets in the past, and is now looking ahead to scenarios, possibly spurred by last year's Fukushima crisis.
As the federal solicitation is quick to point out, "The recent earthquake in Japan in March of 2011 and the resultant nuclear crisis has renewed interest in this item.
Of course, potassium iodide would also come in handy if there were to be an airstrike against a target laden will nuclear material, say, like the sites in Iran. One of the big concerns surrounding the practical devastation of those nuclear facilities is the radiation it will unleash into the surroundings.
Destroying one of the most likely Iranian targets, the 1000-megawatt Bushehr nuclear plant, would create just such a concern.
The request comes at a time when radiation is being found in Kelp off the coast of California, polar bears are coming down with a mysterious sickness in Alaska, and a radiation wave is headed our way.
This on top of a stark warning by a former UN adviser that the world could literally be destroyed by Fukushima.
When you throw in the possibility of an Israeli and or US strike on an active Iranian nuclear power plant you can clearly see the nuclear nightmare the world now finds itself in.
The idea that the Israeli or US government would literally purposefully blow up a nuclear plant the size of Chernobyl is absolutely insane and shows the level that the globalists are willing to go to reach their goals.
Strange, because it wouldn’t do most people any good.
Loony panic story.
UN anti-nuke source, claims of a study of polar bears in the middle of winter... Did this site suddenly get invaded by Mother Jones??
To my knowledge there is only one “more effective” anti-radiation medicine, but it has only been used in limited experimentation.
“Ionizing” radiation penetrates the cell walls in our bodies and creates “free radicals”, chemicals that damage or kill our cells. The more cells damaged or killed, the sicker you get.
Some ingenious individual got the idea that if there was some way to get the common food preservatives BHA and BHT into our cells, they would neutralize the free radicals and protect the cells. But this normally can’t happen because our cell membranes won’t let BHA and BHT through.
Enter nanotechnology. Tiny particles of matter so small that they can easily enter our cells, all over the body. And the cell membranes do not block them out. And even at their small size, they are hollow, and can be filled with BHA and BHT.
Of course there are limits to how much radiation such a person can get, but this technique suggests that at least their resistance to radiation can be increased.
how about magic-decoder rings, got plenty of those?
Inside the nuclear reactor industry: GE.
You buy and build a GE nuclear plant design, you get a onsite GE engineer for the life of the plant, ex. Fukushima, (6) GE reactor plant designs built there so (6) engineers with supporting employees are onsite. GE instructs the plant on how to place fuel assemblies for optimal heat production and for storage. These types of decision are..not..left to operators who purchased the design(s) and then build the plant besides ongoing upgrade modifications and operating instructions approved and overseen by GE since it affects their design .
GE fingerprints are all over Fukushima.
MREs and/or freeze dried foods
Add to the list.
And then there is this......
If this puppy goes, people won't be worrying about their thyroids....
Arnie Gundersen of Fairwinds Associates talked recently to the Japanese press and was asked about what to do about Fukushima. He said, every morning get up and check the news to see if Unit 4 is still standing or not. If it has fallen, leave Japan.
You said: GE fingerprints are all over Fukushima.
Let's see, GE reactors that suffered the most catastrophic failure possible releases less nuclear material in Japan than the blowover from the above ground nuclear tests by China? Propaganda that Fukushima will result in destruction of the world?
I think the fingerprints involved here are the anti-nuclear propaganda salted with the typical liberal love of Iran's nuclear program. Your conspiracy mileage may vary.
BTW, TEPCO came out with a game plan to unload Unit 4’s spent fuel pond by erecting another building alongside to house a new yet-to-be-built crane to handle the specialized removal of the fuel (assemblies).
That’s the good news. The bad news is that it will be at least a year and a half before the first fuel removal would happen.
Then there is Unit’s 1,2 & 3 fuel pools and 5 and 6 and the common pool and the dry storage fuel area.
Fukushima was one of the top ten largest nuclear power generating sites in the world.
Source? Of course you have your own agenda but try to stick to the facts.
>> “Of course you have your own agenda but try to stick to the facts.” <<
We’d all benefit from you and your ilk following your own advice.
Not a question of if, just a question of when. The technology required to remove the spent fuel rods from the damaged reactor buildings, does not even currently exist. And under all that, there is molten corium burrowing into the ground. So either the earthquake after shocks destroy the integrity of the buildings, or the molten corium erodes the supporting ground. And even if the SFP's hold their integrity, radiation releases will continue for 10-20 years.
Michael Rivero, welcome back dude!!!!
You are referring to TEPCO the Japanese government and GE, right?
