    Update: Radioactive Material Hijacked In Mexico Found Abandoned

    Update: The Associated Press reports that the truck involved in the theft of radioactive material in Mexico has been found and the material was reportedly abandoned at the scene. 

    dirty-bomb

    With America’s borders completely exposed and open for anyone willing to cross the Rio Grande, smuggling humans or drugs into the United States has never been easier.

    That’s why the following report from Mexico should sound an alarm for a Homeland Security apparatus that has, thus far, completely ignored the potential threat of terrorism originating from our southern neighbor.

    Thieves have made off with a truck in Mexico carrying a dangerous radioactive source used in medical treatments, a material that could also provide an ingredient for a so-called “dirty bomb”.

    The U.N. nuclear agency said it had been informed by Mexican authorities that the truck, which was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage centre, was stolen near Mexico City on Monday.

    Apart from peaceful medical and industrial uses, experts say cobalt-60 can also be used in a dirty bomb in which conventional explosives disperse radiation from a radioactive source.

    “At the time the truck was stolen, the (radioactive) source was properly shielded. However, the source could be extremely dangerous to a person if removed from the shielding, or if it was damaged,” the IAEA statement said.

    “Cobalt-60 has figured in several serious accidents, some of them fatal,” nuclear expert Mark Hibbs of the Carnegie Endowment think-tank said. “If dispersed, cobalt-60 or other radioactive source material could cause radiation poisoning locally.”

    We can reasonably assume the following:

    • This was a planned hijacking (despite claims to the contrary by officials), so whoever took the material knew exactly what was in the truck
    • Considering that drug cartels are able to make thousands of tons of illicit substances disappear on a yearly basis, and that it often takes Mexican police and military years to track down drug cartel leadership, officials in Mexico likely haven’t clue as to where this radioactive Cobalt-60 is.
    • Since hijackings and other criminal activity in Mexico are in almost all cases linked to the cartels, we can assume it is in their possession. In all likelihood, however, the cartel would have no use for such material as it does not produce a nuclear device that could be used for assassinations.

    If the above is true, then this hijacking was likely instigated at the behest of some other organization, perhaps one with ties to terrorism, or worse, to groups looking to execute a false-flag style attack within the continental United States, something Charlie McGrath warned could be part of a much broader plan in the very near future.

    Via The Daily Sheeple:

    Also known as a Radiological Dispersal Device, a dirty bomb uses a source of radiation and conventional explosives. When the bomb explodes, radiation is scattered, making the area radioactive and curtailing use of the area without full radiological precautions.

    Dirty bombs are not primarily aimed at killing people. Their use is in the disruption that they cause.

    Imagine that a dirty bomb went off on Wall Street, or outside a major airport, or on the top edge of a medium height building in a busy urban area. That area would be closed, and until a lengthy and costly clean up was completed, it would remain closed. The economic damage would be huge. As these bombs use conventional explosives there could well be infrastructure damage which again takes time and money to rectify.

    These devices do not have to be big, it wouldn’t be like looking for a truck bomb. The radioactive component is frighteningly small, and the amount of explosive would only need to be enough to break open the canister, though a larger amount would disperse the radiation over a wider area.

    We know for a 100% fact that members of foreign organizations listed by the U.S. government as terroristic in nature regularly cross into the United States by way of Mexico. The Department of Homeland Security, though they have done nothing to prevent it, even has a name for these people:

    OTM: ‘Other Than Mexican’ Border Security Threat

    “We have left the back door to the United States open,” former Rep. J.D. Hayworth told the station. “We have to understand that there are definitely people who mean to do us harm who have crossed that border.”

    Now we know those organizations and their members don’t need to smuggle nuclear material into the United States from Iran, North Korea or Russia. They have access to it just a few hundred miles south of our border.

    Consider the panic that would ensue should such a device be detonated on U.S. soil… and prepare accordingly.

                A REAL terrorist group would break up X amount of radioactive material and break it up into 10 or so 1/10 X amounts and dirty bomb 10 separate targets rather than the whole thing in one. The ONLY goal of a REAL terrorist group would be the mass clean up and the financial disruption and fear. Any radioactive material like this will increase the risk of cancer, but so will eating anything in contact from the Pacific Ocean via Fukushima.

                A TRUE dirty bomb is a freaking nightmare and made out of something like plutonium powder or other very dangerous nuke material. The fear here is the real goal and a few people getting sick would only add to that fear. I would be more worried about nuclear bomb material in small amounts, not enough for critical mass for a muke, that someone could spread through high explosives. This is something that we all should be concerned about as this world get crazier each day.

                  They will not be able to break this material up, its not like that. This is a radioactive source material, which means it is extremely highly radioactive. If someone were to open the source container they would be subjected to massive doses of gamma radiation and would become sick and die, possibly within hours. The source container acts as shielding to prevent exposure, once its opened, all hell will break loose. The material will be spread inadvertently and the whole area and anyone there will be contaminated and exposed to gamma radiation. Keep in mind contamination and exposure are 2 different things. You can be contaminated (have radioactive material on you) but not suffer debilitating effects of radiations exposure. Sorry for this being so ling, but I spent years as a radiochemist at a nuke plant, and can ramble on about this stuff for hours.

                  @ paranoid. I don’t know how much actual material was stolen, but I am going by the old notion of the way they can spread out a weapon. If some terrorists have enough nuclear material for 10 bombs, do they make a large fission bomb to take out more of a target, or do they take 10 targets out on a smaller scale. This is one reason that smaller nuclear bombs on ICBM’s are packed into buses rather than a large 20 megaton. The more the targets that are hit the more destruction to their “enemy”. Even something small split into 10 smaller pieces MIGHT be better for the terrorists than one. Might because there is a point of dimishing returns. I would have to know the exact amount to estimate this. Even if split into two pieces this would cause more psychology damage than just one.

                  Look at what we are talking about here. This is nuts that we even have to live in such a decayed world that this would even be thought of that could happen. Why someone would not be preparing their family for the shortcomings of the next SHTF is way beyond me, 99% of them is still shocking to me. :(

                  Be Informed you asked me one time why we have become what we have become. I responded with a list of things off the top of my head. I have considered this further and come up with a depressing conclusion. We have lost all morals. We are all are to blame. We all have succumbed to the 7 deadly sins.

                  Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed, and Sloth.

                  Most people have no problem with these sins anymore. Those of us who do should have stood up long ago. I am saddened when I think of this. I am partially to blame.

                  Sadly it is going to get much worse I fear.

            True. You’ve never seen those detectors at border crossings? Or even Interstate toll booths? One of them was set off by a guy who’d had a radiation treatment for cancer some days earlier. Just the microscopic residual was detected. There’s a bunch of unidentifiable somethings on poles along Interstates leading away from Detroit. I was living there when they out them up about a year or two after 9/11. I’ve always thought they were radiation detectors.

        A lot of hard and very dangerous work for such a small payoff-possible dirty bombs. There are much easier and more effective ways of causing severe disruptions and death such as taking out a few power sub-stations that would only take seconds to shoot up and days, if not weeks to repair and replace transformers. Or what about those hundreds of miles of water pipes out west that are above ground and unprotected. Again, a number of big holes for a few miles would cut off incoming drinking water for places like L.A. Cutting off power and water for a few days to any large metro area would cause as much panic and death and be a lot easier and safer than Cobalt-60. This sounds more like another possible false-flag event since most folks don’t difference between various types of radioactive materials and their potentials.

      If it moves across the US border to a large city like Houston, and is exploded, the prevailing SE winds will make most of Texas uninhabitable.

      Where will these Texans go? They will go to Washington and burn the fucker to the ground, will all hands on board. he White house will become no house. Congress will be removed. FBI, CIA, IRS, DHS, and all the other unlawful agencies will be eliminated.

      The government should direct their terrorists to someplace like California instead, where they have no will to fight or remain free. They can die living the libtard lifestyle they desire.

          Yup. The first test bomb was detonated near Alamagordo, NM. You could still see the black spot when I flew by there in 1966. It was a ground burst – on a tower about 100 feet high. But not long after they moved all the tests to Bikini Atoll in the Pacific.

          This Mexico hijacking is a mountain/molehill situation. The amount of Cobalt 60 material is small, it’s probably in a form that could not be broken up into the powder needed for a dirty bomb without very expensive robotic material-handling equipment, (or a suicidal effort by the terrorist). Then you have to transport a highly radioactive device to a target. It would easily be caught at the border by the radiation detectors, unless you somehow flew it in on a plane. But the shielding necessary to keep anyone near it alive weighs tons, so that’s probably a non-starter. Walk it across with a drug mule? Even drug mules can’t carry 1000 lb. lead canisters.

          Yawn.

Think more on how you can save the members of your family and/or group to fight another day.

          @ Peterson – well peterson the ugly truth is that whomever stole this couldn’t even seal the deal! Thankfully for us it sounds like they got spooked, thier buyer bailed or whoever took it didn’t know what they had and freaked once they found out! Lol. Of course there are some who believe that the story of findng it abandoned is false. God I hope not.

        Dear Ugly Truth, The ugly truth is that with people like Mohamed Elibiary, of the Muslim brotherhood heading Homeland Security, they not only won’t get caught, but will probably be aided by these traitors. Of course there is also Valerie Jarrett, from Iran, who is Obama’s chief adviser. She was personally responsible for firing the top generals in charge of nuclear weapons. The list goes on and on and on with this leftist government of traitors.

          Obviously you missed my attempt at humor. However in the world we live in, the truly sad thing is that seemingly benign things can and will be used as an excuse to take away more of our freedom. To answer your question, no, not everything is a false flag, however if you recall the immortal words of O’s former chief of staff and now the mayor of Chicago Rahm Immanuel, “Never let a crises go to waste.” Is this hijacking the work of our govt., my guess is probably not. Could it be? Your darn right it could. Don’t underestimate the evil of the people who seek to control your life or you will end up eating a nutrition pellet from a metal pipe at the FEMA camp they dump you into for the crime of visiting this free thinking website.

      From what I know about Cobalt 60 is that it is a medical radioactive material. If mixed with a conventional bomb it makes a dirty bomb. Depending on how much they got the could make several bombs.

      NOW FOR THE GODD NEWS (if you want to call it that) From what I read years ago after 9/11 was it only takes about a quart jar full to contaminate around 20 or 30 city blocks. It won’t take out a whole City. If I remember right? I could be wrong. Dose anyone have more INFO?

      Some more good news? Now you could have the drug gangs with nukes and they could give them or sell them to some Muslim radicals so they can bring them across the border. Remember how secure the border is. Just ask Big Sis or who ever the hell is running the nut house (DHS).

      They only need to get 1 across the border. If they set it off then Obullshit could bring in Martial Law, and then the SHTF and then the Blue Helmets come in. Then it really gets bad. (AIM SMALL MISS SMALL)

      TSWHTF big time. Dose anyone remember the TV program Jerico? Remember TPTB will always give you just a little glimpse of what is to come and then wait a while then do it.

      Get your IODINE TABS as soon as you can. Also Gas Mask with ABC filters. Please don’t wait. Carry them with you. Put some in you vehicles. BETTER TO HAVE THEM AND NOT USE THEM THAN NOT TO THEM AND NEED THEM.

      You can also use regular liquid IODINE by placing it on and around your neck and forearms. This will help, but its not a cure to stop the radiation, This is for shittin and gttin out.

      Off topic. Silver is down and now is the time to buy if you can find it. I just left my dealer and was told that he is only getting in about 1/3 of the junk silver he gets in every week. Its has really slowed down.
      I just picked up
      $.50 – $8.50
      $.25 – &4.25

        @Sgt Dale. Good luck to the Gangs/cartel trying to make a Nuke out of colbalt 60 @ medical grade. I wouldnt be worried if the whole shipment was dumped in the middle of Los Angeles. Just a hazard mess to clean up. What would worry me is a actual high gamma dirty bomb (a real Gov sponsored one) detonated by “you know who” and then blamed on the coke sniffers in Mexico. And remember to rotate your KI and buy a few rad stamps too so you dont take KI (its not good for you) until needed. Also so you dont have too wait for the gov to tell you to take it when it is too late to help.

          Very good points. They will more than get help form the feds to build a dirty bomb. You just need to put a jar of Cobalt 60 with a stick of TNT so that it would blow the Cobalt all over the place. . A Cobalt 60 bomb would be more of a pain in the ass than a weapon of mass destruction. You are right.
          This would cause more of a panic than anything. It would contaminate a area in a large city. This would cause a domino affect to other thing like Martial Law.

        Do you know if you are allergic to Iodine?

        If you are and you take those tablets, you’re gonna die.
        First reaction is you going to feel hot. Like a severe fever. Then become short of breath and finally tunnel vision sets in.

        How do I know? Because I am allergic to iodine.
        I can use Povidone-Iodine, (10% solution) by skin absorption to prevent thyroid problems. Four inch swab patch on stomach daily is enough. Still I take a chance.

        If you are caught in a dirty bomb blast. Of course leave the area. The main problem is contamination of your clothes. A good sudsy scrub in the shower and change of clothes is about all you can do. Bury the contaminated clothes Remember you can use a N-95/100 masks or a simple wet handkerchief to keep from breathing in radioactive particulates.
        Unless you have NEW Gas Masks and are able to DO THE MAINTENANCE on them to keep them viable, these Army/Navy masks are only good for Tear Gas and Pepper Spray. Maybe for a dirty bomb. But for Nerve Gas or a Chemical agent, I would not use them.

          Hey thanks for the info. I didn’t know that you could be allergic to Iodine. Good advice. 4 inch swab across the stock I never heard of that but I could see how it would work.

          The iodine just might get you to an aid station so you can b e treated for both. If you do use it you are DAMNED and if you Don’t use it you are Damned.
          Good luck my FRIEND!!!
          Slingshot I’m more worried about Biological than Nukes or Chems. Do you have any insight on them? (Biological)
          Thanks again.

            To add to the iodine problem. You have to pay attention to the dosage. I am not supposed to eat crab, shrimp or oysters but I do. They contain iodine but when I start to feel warm I stop. Believe me you will sweat and feel like you are in an oven in the beginning. If you quickly leave the area, shower and change clothes you should be fine. It is exposure time to monitor. Keep particles from touching your skin.
            Chemical agents are blood and nerve. One type attacks the blood cells to keep Oxygen from being carried in your blood. The nerve agents attack the central nervous system to shut down your breathing. Some will burn tissue( Lungs and Eyes) If I remember right, Antropine is the attidote medicine. Introduction is either by skin absorption or ingestion by breathing.
            Full Chemical suits are required for full protection. Then you have the problem of decontamination and disposal. Chemicals attacks can last for up to Two Weeks.
            Plants, insects and small animals die off quickly depending on the agent used. Mustard and Chlorine gas.
            Bio-Weapons especially weaponized. You are going to need the direct antidote/vacinations. Anthrax, Small pox are a couple that comes to mind. Again some protective coving will be required.
            Nuclear? I read some of the published reports from the firefighters who were at Chenoyble powerplant accident in Russia. They were cooked from the inside out like a microwave oven. They were Hero’s. Knowing they were going to die a terrible death. Stay out of the fallout and try to shield yourself. Most will not have Geiger counters or dosimeters to count Rads or the ability to calibrated equipment. Then you still deal with dosage and time exposure.

            Pretty scary, isn’t it?

            Anyone with corrections, please advise.

          Iodine is only good for blocking the effects of radioactive iodine. Cobalt 60 is not iodine so iodine would be of limited use in a cobalt 60 release. Everyone seems to have a gut reaction to take iodine but it is of limited use unless there is a release of radioactive iodine.

          Melatonin can strengthen the body’s defense to radioactivity according to some studies. The dose is 1-4 mg PO before bedtime on a daily basis until the risk passes.

        Sgt Dale ,
        Be advised Iodine Tablets for anyone over 40 is NOT recommended. Only for those under 40 years of age should use them, consult a physcian before use there can be serious complications.
        On the Cobalt 60 the main threat is inhalation of the particles or skin exposure that can cause Nasty Beta burns on the skin. The main mess is going to be panic if something like this happens.
        The perpetrators will probably seek a high visibility target for effective media exposure.
        Make no mistake this is a terror weapon with limited area denial capabilities it’s main purpose is physchological in nature.
        How the regime responds will be the million dollar question who do you think will be blamed,for the incident?

        Theguy,
        With out getting into anything classified UAS systems exist with Hyperscan capabilities that can detect radiological emissions . NEST has that capability, dirty bomb components are easily detectable even with practical shielding.

        Nuclear weapons have a distinct signature in radio ( radiation) emission and signatures that are unique to this type of weapon system. Some systems use a very strong magnetic field to suspend the pit inside of a tamper / reflector assembly ( teller ulam levitated pit) and implosion assembly that surrounds the plutonium core, this has to hold its position at an exact distance and geometry for the system to work.
        This field can be detected with airborne or ground based systems .

        You really do not need ground based survalence at the border this can all be done remotely with the advanced UAS systems that are currently in use today.

        Even though it seems nothing is being done on the outside , rest assured vigilance is a high priority on this threat.

      • TPTB are liars says:

        A fuel dump explosion will not be like an atomic bomb blast. Preferably don’t be downwind or within 50 miles of it. If she blows, lock yourself in the basement, cover and tape as much of the openings as possible and don’t come out for a minimum of 9 days. If possible stay inside for at least 3 weeks. Radiation is not carried by air. It attaches itself to something.

        The only way a fuel dump will melt down and explode is if it loses power and the cooling pumps aren’t running. It would be a grid down shtf when this happens, so how will anyone even know when it blows? Which is why everyone should have a radiation meter. You can pick up a decent low priced geiger counter for less than $300. Remember, keep in a faraday cage.

        When it’s time to go back outside, everything will have radioactive dust on it that will need to be wiped down and disposed of. Including soil. The top few inches of your garden or fields will need to be scraped and gotten rid of.

      I think if the thieves who may have stolen this stuff get sick or worse, the Mexican goverment should be held liable for any injuries suffered or loss of life to those involved. If that’s the case, the thieves should sue and be compensated at a minimum for any losses. I think Mexico is negligent here. Because if Mexico had adequately provided security for the transport of this material so that it couldn’t be stolen, the thieves wouldn’t have been able to steal it. This is all Mexico’s fault.
