Over the last several years we have looked at a variety of events that could lead to TEOTWAWKI (The End of the World as We Know It). While generally considered to be low probability events, there are a few that sit at the top of our list as being improbable but most certainly within the realm of possibility, especially considering the current state of affairs around the world. As far as man-made disasters go we consider economic collapse, nuclear attack and electro magnetic pulse as three of the leading candidates for what could go wrong. In the article below, Alex Thomas of The Intel Hub lays out several considerations regarding the possibility of a nuclear attack on US soil.
It has been our view that we may very well see a nuclear attack against a major US city within our lifetime, be it as a result of global war or by an organization not affiliated with any particular government. More than likely, it would come in the form of a small-scale ‘suit case’ nuke or dirty bomb, and it will originate from a terrorist organization. We utilize the term ‘terrorist organization’ loosely, meaning that any organization that would do us harm, be it islamic fundamentalists or rogue shadow intelligence operatives (we realize this sound conspiratorial, but look to history for evidence of past events), is an enemy of the American people as a whole.
Mr. Thomas puts forth an argument for how and why the stage for nuclear attack in America has been set and suggests that such an attack is designed as a ‘false flag’ for the purpose of furthering a grander agenda by globalist elements. Such attacks have been carried out in the past – German Reichstag, US Gulf of Tonkin, Japanese Mukden incident, Russian Mainila bombing – to name just a few. The clear fact of the matter is that ‘false flag’ attacks have happened throughout history and they will happen in the future. They have led to the deaths of millions, and given that we have more people on the planet now than ever before, with weapons never before seen prior to the 20th century, things could get very ugly, very fast.

Many in the alternative media have wondered if a false flag nuke attack within America is a real possibility. Would they do it? Who would it be? What cities would be targeted?
Recently, The New York Times reported that the United States is running out of a rare gas that is used to detect smuggled nuclear materials.
The reason given is that one arm of the Energy Department is selling the gas much quicker than the other is able to accumulate it.
While this could possibly be a legitimate reason, it seems highly suspicious that a government that is installing a police state nationwide to supposedly save us from terrorists would be unable to obtain the gas needed to detect smuggled nuclear weapons.
Wouldn’t a nuclear attack on America be the MOST important threat to combat?
Unfortunately there is a long history of suspicious nuclear activity in the United States, with cover story after cover story being spread throughout the corporate controlled media.
At this junction in history it seems prudent to lay out some of the more ludicrous stories that have been planted into the minds of the American people.
Laying The Groundwork
One of the more recent nuclear cover stories was released in late March. This story was just that, a complete and utter fabrication of what Al Qaeda can actually do.
25 letters that claim nuclear bombs are hidden throughout the United States were supposedly sent to multiple investigators and citizens in the Chicago area.
“The idea that Al Qaeda could place over a hundred nuclear weapons into government buildings throughout the United States is 100% impossible. Cave dwelling ninjas do not have the ability to either steal or create nuclear weapons, fly them over to America, and somehow plant them in government buildings.”
Last year Obama labeled a nuclear attack on America as the biggest single threat facing our nation yet we are unable to obtain the gas used to detected them?
Calling terrorists with nuclear weapons “the single biggest threat to U.S. security,” Obama said that the “central focus for this summit is getting the international community on the path in which we are locking down that nuclear material in a very specific time frame with a specific work plan,” Politico reported in 2010.
In late July 2010, The National Research Council released a report titled, Nuclear Forensics: A Capability at Risk.
The report outlined the fact that the United States is no longer able to track nukes threatening our shores!
Gordon Duff, writing for Veterans Today, speculated that this was a cover that could be used in the event of a false flag nuclear attack:
“A powerful group within the United States, one with influence over the press and the ability to derail an investigation as was done with 9/11, has been “tasked” with laying the groundwork for a terrorist attack on America, one using nuclear material.”
In the same article Gordon wrote about a somewhat unknown raid that took place in Indiana that he believes was related to smuggled nuclear weapons.
“Another piece of the puzzle involved a federal task force, Defense, Energy, FBI, descending on a warehouse in Greenfield, Indiana under the guise of a “records search.” This “Waco style” assault on a facility storing furniture for college dorm rooms was much more than it seemed. No case, criminal or civil, provided any underlying reason for the search.”
In 2002, World Net Daily reported on a book by an FBI consult that claimed that Osama Bin Laden had bought 20 suitcase nukes from KGB agents in 1998!
A new book by an FBI consultant on international terrorism says Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaida terrorist network purchased 20 suitcase nuclear weapons from former KGB agents in 1998 for $30 million.
The book,“Al Qaeda: Brotherhood of Terror,” by Paul L. Williams, also says this deal was one of at least three in the last decade in which al-Qaida purchased small nuclear weapons or weapons-grade nuclear uranium.
Obviously this book was one of the first attempts to implant the possibility of Al Qaeda nuking the U.S. into the minds of the American people.
And then there is the now infamous 2007 Minot Air Force Base fiasco which involved nuclear weapons that were apparently missing for up to 36 hours.
“According to a wide range of reports, several nuclear bombs were “lost” for 36 hours after taking off August 29/30, 2007 on a “cross-country journey” across the U.S., from U.S.A.F Base Minot in North Dakota to U.S.A.F. Base Barksdale in Louisiana.
Reportedly, in total there were six W80-1 nuclear warheads armed on AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles (ACMs) that were “lost.” The story was first reported by the Military Times, after military servicemen leaked the story,” reported Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya.
Editor’s Follow Up:
The first thing any prepper must do with respect to the possibility of a nuclear attack is to accept it can happen and assume it will. Next, consider that there are roughly 50 major metropolitan areas in the United States. If you live in one of those areas, then your odds are 50-to-1 that it hits your area. There are, of course, some targets that would be more beneficial to terrorist organizations than others. If you live in a resource rich international shipping hub like Houston, TX, for example, then emergency and preparedness in response to a nuclear attack should be at the top of your prep list (See article: The Single Most Devastating Nuclear Target in America).
Bottom Line: Be prepared, because when it happens, it will happen without warning, at anytime of the day, and it may very well happen in your home city. Do you have a plan in place to get your family together if the kids happen to be in school and you’re at work? Do you plan on evacuating using the same routes as everyone else, or are you ready to take alternate routes, on ATV, bicycle, or foot if necessary? If you have to evac on without a car, are you bug out bags ready with food, water, and potassium iodide? These considerations and many more should be part of your overall SHTF Plan – just in case.
