Dirty Bomb Suspects Arrested in South Africa

Hiroshima After the Atomic Bomb Was Detonated


While much of the world has focused on the World Cup Soccer (called Football by most of the world) events in South Africa lately (with Spain winning), something much more potentially important was also going on.  Some in South Africa were apparently involved in a plot to supply materials for what is known as a “dirty bomb”:

Alleged Dirty Bomb Scheme Busted in S. Africa

4 Arrested in Sting Operation at Pretoria Gas Station; Radioactive Isotope Caesium-137 Recovered

(CBS) Four men allegedly involved in the sale of radioactive materials suspected for use in a dirty bomb were arrested at a South Africa gas station, CBS News confirms.

The arrests were the results of a sting operation by international police forces in Pretoria. They were first reported in the Independent, a South African newspaper.

According to the report, police stormed the gas station and opened fire on the suspects, sending panicked customers and attendants fleeing. Authorities recovered amounts of Caesium-137, a radioactive isotope, but didn’t find a larger device rumored to be available on the black market. The Caesium-137 could potentially be used for a dirty bomb.

“We don’t know what these suspects’ intentions were and we need to find the device quickly,” a police official told the Independent.

The sting operation involved members of Interpol and a specialized South African tactical unit called the Hawks. Undercover law enforcement agents had infiltrated the alleged criminal organization involved in the bust.  http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/07/12/world/main6670171.shtml

A dirty bomb DOES NOT explode like a true nuclear bomb as it is NOT A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION.  Hence it is not as destructive as nuclear bombs like the one Hiroshima was.

What a dirty bomb is is a regular bomb that contains radioactive materials.  It is called a dirty bomb because in addition to the damage caused by its explosion, it contaminates (makes dirty) the entire area for quite a while and is believed to have the potential to shut down the functioning of at least portions of major cities where detonated.

It is generally believed that various terrorist organizations are interested in acquiring nuclear materials so that they can greatly disrupt commerce and society in Western lands (mainly, but not exclusively, often meaning the USA and the UK).

And while the South African gfovernment apparently succeeded in arresting some that apparently were involved in supporting that activity, the fact that nuclear materials were confiscated should hopefully open up everyone’s eyes to the fact that nuclear materials are getting into the hands of people that governments do not want to get a hold of them.

I have long suspected that the use of dirty bombs would occur in the USA and elsewhere, and are likely to be part of s series of events that will help bring down the USA and its Anglo-descended allies.  And it looks like terrorists hope to accomplish that.
