Nuclear Drones

by JASmius

Chilling - and entirely plausible:

Terrorists flying drones to spread highly radioactive material over a civilian area: That’s part of the nightmare scenario Barack Obama urged world leaders to consider as they debated better ways of controlling nuclear material.

With the aid of apocalyptic fake newscasts, Obama told the group of fifty heads of state and foreign ministers in Washington on Friday to imagine that a terrorist group had bought isotopes through brokers on the so-called dark Web. One shipment was picked up in transit by radiation monitors, but others were thought to be still on the move. The terrorists were believed to be planning to use a drone to distribute the material. Would authorities react in time?

This hypothetical war-game was described by a U.K. official speaking on condition of anonymity because the meeting was closed. Obama’s aim was to push the men and women around the table to think about how their governments would respond. Prime Minister David Cameron told reporters the threat was serious.

“So many summits are about dealing with things that have already gone wrong and we are trying to put right,” he said ahead of the meeting. “This is a summit about something we are trying to prevent. The concept of terrorists and nuclear materials coming together is obviously a very chilling prospect. In the light of the Belgian attacks, we know is a threat that is only too real.”

Indeed.  If only this scenario wasn't being touted by the same man who birthed ISIS and nurtured its rise, gave his blessing to Iran's nuclear weapons, militantly ignores North Korea's, and is dismantling our own nuclear capabilities while the ChiComms and Russians expand their strategic nuclear superiority over us at an exponential rate.  It lends his argument all the credibility of Bill Clinton leading a bible study, or Trump University adding an ethics curriculum.

Wait a minute; do you hear that buzzing sound.....?
