TWENTY SUITCASE NUKES ALREADY IN THE UNITED STATES
NewsMax.com ^ | July 14, 2004 | Joan Swirsky

Posted on 07/14/2004 1:18:13 PM PDT by CHARLITE

I beg you to read Mrs. Swirsky's latests NewsMax.com column with the utmost serious attention. Why isn't the information being widely publicized concerning the existence of 20 suitcase nuke bombs set and ready to be exploded any day now, in 20 American cities? Is this "John-John" team the one we want to deal with this horrific threat to America?

The idea is scary, but it seems to me that if such things existed and that terrorists did have them, they would have used them by now.

Welcome to FR.
You might want to rethink whether putting your full name & town on an open forum is a good idea.

I agree, there is no motivation for any terrorist to hold onto these for a rainy day explosion. I think they would be too eager to set one off once they got it into the country.

The stupidest thing about these stories is that it would be easier for an organization to build or buy a huge intercontinental ballistic missile system to deliver the payload than suitcases. Why do think we developed the missile system???? Do think all our pentagon scientists are walking around swatting their selves on the heads going "Gosh Darn! Why didn't we think of that? Those cunning arabs!".

Umm, let's see - this story first emerged back in 2001. Since then, we weren't nuked in 2002. We weren't nuked in 2003. We weren't nuked in 2004 (so far). Am I missing something???

I first thought of that too but then pondered that acquiring these weapons and getting them in place may be a fluid dynamic process. I'm not sure we can say that because one hasn't gone off that they aren't out there being lined up. What's scary about this is if it's true do you think the admin would tell us? What's to be gained by panicing the public.

This has been hashed over time and time again on FR.

If they had them, they would have used them. Al qaeda does not have any functioning nuk-U-ler bombs.

Because it is old news, and Tin Foil Hat News at that.
Last week NewsMax claimed there were 40 of them.
Have they found 20 since then?

Some months ago, a freeper stated that the trigger on these devices had a shelf life of 60 days.

Any comments?

Because it is garbage and not true. Remember the media wins attention by playing on your fears. Remember when Newsmax was guaranteeing that Hillary would run for President in '04? Pretty scary but never happened.

I remember reading somehere the triggers for these things have a short shelf life.

Unless these are "new", the old soviety versions are already stale.

anyone have any real info?

I agree. I have a hard time believing that UBL (who's probably dead anyway) has 20 suitcase nukes (another article on Newsmax said six, but who's really counting?), while Iran is feverishly trying to develop their own bomb. The reason Iran wants the bomb is so they can drop it on Israel at the earliest possible moment. Why doesn't Iran simply buy a suitcase nuke from al-Qaeda? The whole notion is ridiculous.

The answer to the poster's questiond, "Why isn't the information widely publicized?", is probably, "Because it's not true."

What specific cities are they in, what size, what type of suitcase. If the 'expert' knows there are 20 of them - let's get the rest of the details. Pshaw!!!

Sub critical mass nukes need a trigger of a very hot isotope with a very short half life. Certainly any 'suitcase nukes' that disappeared at the fall of the Soviet Union would no longer be operational.

So does mine. I bought it off eBay but the guy said "Don't open it".

Feels kinda light though. I must have said something funny when I bought it because he was laughing up a storm.

What REALLY happened is that the Islamolunatics shipped 20 suitcase nukes to the US but the airlines kept losing their luggage, so they have been rediced to attending lost luggage auctions, trying to find them...

Suitcase Nukes are so twentieth century. I have one, but it just sits there collecting dust. For those "on the go" types, I recommend the new Blast-Pro Fanny Pack Nukes:

This wouldn't happen if Ace and Gary (the Ambigiously Gay Dou) were in charge. They would have a SEVEN day waiting period of suitcase nukes which would make everybody safer.

I've got one.

I bet you paid plenty for yours as an "early adopter". I waited until all 80 were in country. Capitalism is a wonderful thing, when only 20 were here they went for $30,000,000 a piece. Now that supply has caught up with demand, I got mine on EBay last night for a mere $10,000,000.
