Kaboom?

In the mid to late 1990s, a number of Russia officials admitted to — although both the US and Russia governments denied it — having “misplaced” as many as a hundred miniature nukes. These suitcase nukes are small, portable, and discrete nuclear bombs in the one to two kiloton range. Some have suggested these weapons don't exist, and others suggest that even if they do, they would be “expired” by now, but for quite some time there have been reports that Al Qaeda purchased at least forty nuclear warheads from former Soviet agents.

According to Joseph Farah, these nukes have already been moved inside the continental US via existing drug smuggling pathways. The “final attack”, a culmination of ten years work, seeks to kill four million Americans, half of them children, as vengeance for the millions of Muslims killed — perhaps inadvertently, and perhaps indirectly, but still killed — by American corporations and the American government over the past quarter century. I can't say that I'm convinced that these claims are based on particularly solid fact, but here's what you're looking at with two kiloton suitcase nukes and forty kiloton warheads if you blow them up in various North American cities:


L-R: San Francisco, Philadelphia, New York, Toronto
Inner circles = total destruction/death, outer circles = major destruction.

Even a “small” bomb (let alone a small warhead) could effectively level the financial and business hubs of most major cities, and kill between fifty and a hundred thousand people depending on the population density. Repeat this across the nation a dozen times and you'd cripple if not destroy the American economy (and do immense damage to the world economy) — and the American way of life I suspect… And I fear to think what Bush's reaction to such an attack would be. Hello, rapture.

…and, if this end-game really is in play, nothing can be done to stop it.


Wait… we have other options.

Note: To be clear, personally I think the above scenario is extremely unlikely. I do not personally believe that any terrorist organizations have meaningful nuclear programs, let alone ones that are this close to strike-capability. I do think that China is a looming threat through, and who knows what a war between Pakistan and India could set off globally…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
