Pundit Press ^ | 5/5/2014 | Thomas Ferdousi

Posted on 05/05/2014 7:03:01 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

The potential danger in the increasingly unstable regions of Ukraine has increased further on news that the country’s intelligence service intercepted people attempting to bring in 3 pounds of radioactive material into the country from a breakaway region of Moldova under the control of pro-Russia forces. The material, which could be uranium 235 was seized on April 30th.

Google translation:

Hazardous substance was imported into the territory of the self-proclaimed Transnistrian Ukraine Moldavian Republic on cars with foreign number. The radioactive substance was kept in a container craftsmanship.

Ruh roh.

Maybe the leader of the free world, the world’s lone superpower, should at least challenge the UN to fulfill its purpose and condemn foreign incursions into Ukraine.

Or not.

“which could be uranium 235”

Or, it could be something else, but U235 sounds scarier than Pm237 or Ba133.

This is probably a mafia deal gone bad. Transnistria is one of the great dump holes in all of Europe. Lots of crime, trafficking, etc.

Russian FSB has a lot of experience blowing things up. I don’t think they need a dirty bomb to kill a lot of people.

Putin is trying to get a feel for just how far and how fast he can push this. He has almost total support at home and his psyops is working well in the West. Can he sell an attempted nuclear attack from the Ukraine? He’s sold a lot of Americans and Europeans with the fascist Ukraine when that’s what he is the ultranationalist / crony capitalist.

Wouldn’t the point be terror and holding Ukraine hostage?

Didn’t the Soviets dump a lot of their nuclear waste in Ukraine?

Yeah, on second thought maybe you are right. If Putin will dump Chechens on Ukraine he won’t have a problem hitting them with a WMD. What a sick tyrant he is.

” what type of ordnance would you suggest for engaging Chechen terrorists?”

I’m confused. Chechen terrorists and Russia bitterly hate each other. That’s not disputed by anyone. It was the ultranationalists in the new Kiev government that is hoping to get chummy with the chechens.

And how do we respond when they bring up Libya? the bombing of Belgrade, Kosovo? Syria?

Special political interests have been lying to us about the effects of nuclear weapons. Nuclear war is much more survivable than presented in their false scenarios! Have a look at the effects of one of the most powerful warheads--warheads that will not be used, because much smaller yields are much more practical (costs, delivery, concealment, lack of extra effects with higher yields, etc.).

“which could be uranium 235”

If it is just radioactive waste then it is almost certainly not U-235. It could also be U-238 which is much more common than U-235.

This must be verified, and then traced to the source.

U-235 is not just laying around in Transneistria (Transwhatever).

It's EXTREMELY important we know where this came from, with certainty.

If the report is even true.

You don't need nukes to do that.

Just look.

“They might have one of those old batteries. “

The Russians liked Strontium 90 in their thermal batteries.
