A couple of observations on your post:

1) Nuclear waste can't cause a nuclear explosion.

2) Armchair war criminals have posted their cool little pics of nuclear explosions and suggesting Mecca and Medina be nuked, oh, geez, I don't know, several thousand times on FR. It sorta stopped being original or interesting or cool somewhere around the first time it was done.

3) Of course, I suspect this is beyond your limited reasoning ability, but I would expect that Bin Laden would be quite thrilled with the US attacking Mecca or Medina in any way, shape, or form.

Frankly, no.. bin laden would not want the USA to destroy mecca/medina. in fact, that's his worst nightmare and *the* reason that ramzi said they didn't want to attack nuclear power plants, because things would go 'out of control'.

If we destroyed the islamic 'holy' centers, the entire culture would fall and cease to be a threat.

We win, they lose.

Get it?

"1) Nuclear waste can't cause a nuclear explosion."

No way. You mean that really? Gee whillikers, they never taught us all that in the military. Shucks, all this time I though my denist's X-ray machine could wipe out my town.

"2) Armchair war criminals have posted their cool little pics of nuclear explosions and suggesting Mecca and Medina be nuked, oh, geez, I don't know, several thousand times on FR. It sorta stopped being original or interesting or cool somewhere around the first time it was done."

If you don't like it, go to DU. They love liberal and sand monkey suck ups.

"3) Of course, I suspect this is beyond your limited reasoning ability, but I would expect that Bin Laden would be quite thrilled with the US attacking Mecca or Medina in any way, shape, or form."

Of course, having a sense of humor is beyond your limited reasoning ability and since I don't have time, nor the crayons to explain it to you, please, go to DU and play with your socialist buddies. Personally speaking if we wiped Islam off of the face of the earth tommorrow, I wouldn't care. But then again, your opinion is like toilet paper. At some point it serves a useful purpose, it usually smells or looks like crap at some point, and can be disposed of rapidly.

Same goes for the endless "bullets dipped in pig fat" posts. Is anyone dumb enough to actually believe that this would intimidate the terrorists???

Waste cannot cause a fissionable explosion. But if it is wrapped around a stick of TNT it can make life interesting for anyone who wanders into the blast radius AFTER detonation. A portion of the nuke material is vaporized and in this form can be inhaled.

THAT is part of the problem with a "dirty" nuke.

I am skeptical of the story, but, it IS credible on its face. Too bad you're not.

It's funny, I had an op-ed on this in the Washington Times a while ago:

John H K! I, for one, am taken back by your viciously snide post to Beck_isright. It seems to come out of left field, and is out of character and unbecoming in light of your usual interesting and informative posts. We all have bad days, I guess this is one of yours?

1) Nuclear waste can't cause a nuclear explosion.

That was my question. What could they do with it?
Thanks for answering in advance.

True enough. But a large quantity of nuclear waste COULD be used to contaminate a densely populated region -- NYC, for example -- if effectively dispersed by a conventional explosive or the crash of a commercial aircraft. Think about it.

You'll change your tune after we lose a few cities.

We're going to find out, sooner or later,

I'd rather Brussels, Paris, Peking, Berlin and Moscow were nuked.

And once-FRee-British Hong Kong.

First rid the planet of the islamofascists' minders inciters, enablers and facilitators.

Followed by the moon-god's Mecca meteor.
