ISIS Now Claims to Have a ‘Dirty Bomb’ After Seizing Uranium from Mosul University
ISIS’ new theme is ‘let’s make the most of the night, like we’re gonna die young.’ Take my hand and we’ll go for a walk on the wild, nuclear terrorism side of things. ISIS has seized more than enough uranium from a Mosul University to make a dirty bomb. I’ll give you three guesses where they might deploy it, you’ll only need one – tea, crumpets and nukes. The Brits could be in for some radioactive fireworks… but I’m sure the Great Satan is on that glowing dance card as well.
ISIS reportedly seized 88 pounds of Uranium from Mosul University after the terror group took control of the city earlier this year.
The uranium could be used for “manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”
The Iraqi ambassador told the United Nations in July that ISIS terrorists seized 88 pounds of uranium from Mosul University.
Insurgents in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country’s north, Iraq told the United Nations in a letter appealing for help to “stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad.”
Nearly 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University, Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.
“Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Alhakim wrote, adding that such materials “can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”
“These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts,” said Alhakim.
Now ISIS rebels claim the terror group has a dirty bomb.
Jihadis boasted of the device on Twitter. British-born Hamayun Tariq, who uses the Muslim name Muslim Al-Britani is thought to have threatened that the bomb may be detonated in London, though his account on the social media site has since been suspended. (Daily Mail)
Is anyone surprised by this? I’m not. It’s only a matter of time before the Jihadists get their nuclear violence on and detonate a suitcase bomb or 12 somewhere. Forget the nuclear doomsday clock – we’ve run out of time and the Islamists love death. Even more so if they get to martyr themselves in the process. ISIS doesn’t tend to bluff and they now have had the time, materials, funding and know-how to set things in motion. Just like with biological and chemical warfare… weapons of mass destruction are the desired gifts to the world from Islam. They’re to die for.
