This is happening. But this is not Obama’s concern. ISIS is “JV.” No, what’s important to Obama and his party of treason is that we think happy thoughts about Islam. What’s important to Obama and his treasonous administration is that, repeat after him, “Islam is peace” and “the Islamic State is not Islamic.”

ISIS has crossed Obama’s “red line.” Remember how Obama was going to war against Assad because of his alleged use of chemical weapons. ISIS has used chemical weapons. Has Obama even mentioned it? Have his running dogs in the media?

‘Highly dangerous’ radioactive material stolen, sparking fears of Isis ‘dirty bomb’ By Caroline Mortimer, The Independent, February 17, 2016:

‘We are afraid the radioactive element will fall into the hands of Daesh’

Iraq is searching for “highly dangerous” radioactive material stolen last year amid fears it could have fallen the hands of Isis jihadis.

The material, stored in a protective case the size of a laptop, went missing from a US-owned storage facility in Basra last November, according to leaked environment ministry documents.

An unnamed senior security official with knowledge of the theft said: “We are afraid the radioactive element will fall into the hands of Daesh (Isis).

“They could simply attach it to explosives to make a dirty bomb”.

The document, dated 30 November and addressed to the ministry’s Centre for Prevention of Radiation, describes “the theft of a highly dangerous radioactive source of Ir-192 with highly radioactive activity belonging to SGS from a depot…in the Rafidhia area of Basra province”.

An anonymous senior environment ministry official based in the city told Reuters the device contained up to 10 grams (0.35 ounces) of Ir-192 “capsules”, a radioactive isotope of iridium also used to treat cancer.

The material is classed as a Category 2 radioactive by the International Atomic Energy Agency – meaning it can be fatal to anyone in close proximity to it in a matter of days or even hours.

So far there is no indication that the material has fallen into the hands of Isis – who do not control this part of southern Iraq – but they have begun using chemical weapons.

The terror group attacked Kurdish forces with mustard gas during a battle near Erbil – capital of the Kurds’ autonomous region in Iraq last August.

It is believed to be the first time chemical weapons have been used in the country since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.

A “dirty bomb” combines nuclear material with conventional explosives to contaminate an area with radiation, in contrast to a nuclear weapon, which uses nuclear fission to trigger a vastly more powerful blast.

A security official said the initial investigation suggested the perpetrators had specific knowledge of how to handle the material and how to gain access to the facility.

There were “No broken locks, no smashed doors and no evidence of forced entry”.

An operations manager for Iraqi security firm Taiz, which was contracted to protect the facility, declined to comment, citing instructions from Iraqi security authorities.

A spokesman for Basra operations command, responsible for security in Basra province, said army, police and intelligence forces were working “day and night” to locate the material.

    Ahhh, don’t worry, its just a “lone wolf” dirty bomb, nothing to see here…

    • Dr. Doomsday

      Moreover they keep using “lone wolf” because they think it obfuscates the obvious -that its not a lone wolf, and that its all connected by that marvelously non peaceful, psychotic excuse for a religion, known otherwise as Islam.

      • michaelofsydney

        Have always thought the term ‘lone wolf’ should be changed to ‘ lone dog’ myself.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    The environment, not islamic terrorism is mankind’s greatest concern.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      I had thought radioactivity was bad for the environment? Although I wouldn’t mind seeing the supporters/apologists/collaborators of islam glowing green w/islamic radioactivity.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        There is ionizing and non ionizing radiation. A tv set would never be allowed to be owned by the general public if the paranoia of radiation was followed to its illogical conclusion.

        • Richard

          Hope that doesn’t happen, I have 4 TVs. 3 Plasmas and one LED, and I NEED them all!

          • Mahou Shoujo

            O dear, you have fallen prey to the emanating rays from the tv screen. They will permeate your head bone and make you believe lame stream media and commercials… “Hold’er Newt” you are an engineer, nothing gets through their thick skulls, you’re ok. Imagine my relief.

          • Richard

            I don’t believe the main stream media, but I do find certain truths in commercials. For instance, it’s OK to eat as many Doritos as you want because they will make more. And it is extremely difficult to just ONE Lays potato chip. Pork really is the other white meat. OTOH, Coors isn’t really much more than the water.

            You’re not wrong about thick skulls. How did you know I’m an engineer? Was it my incredible good looks? I’m a stress guy, we aren’t the most typical of engineers.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            You have a keen grasp of the obvious, you are not too far gone… yet.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            You confessed to being an engineer a couple of weeks ago. Due to circumstance within my control, there are a few of us in the field, that had to take the wonderful ideas engineered in the head shed, deal with the “as built” then make the dam thing whirr like a well oiled machine, rather than klunk like an off spec democrat. Stress can be fun, have had to deal with a few instances where it was not necessarily engineered into the system, usually found using the “big bang” theory. “Reverse” engineering for fun and profit, heavy oil recovery.

    I read a while ago that ISIS got it’s hands on Nuke material. There are about 150 cases a year of illegal trafficking of such materials.

  • Dave Mc

    Because of the difficulties in getting these into the US, I expect the Isis to try their luck in Europe first. Not Berlin or Paris, but instead in cities that have low muslim/high Christian or atheist populations. Zurich, Lourdes, Innsbruck and towns like them would be likely targets.

    Sadly, the 9/11 death totals set the bar for Isis. Until they exceed that total they cannot stand alone, outside the shadow of Al-Queda.

    Dread to think it, but it’s reasonable to expect about 2 dirty bombs a year once their operatives are securely in place, hidden throughout Europe.

  • karl59

    Iran will never depend on Obama to look for these weapons.

    • Richard

      First, it was Iraq that lost this material, not Iran. Second the isotopes that went missing had not been weaponized.
      From what Ichabod Crain posted 18 hours ago it seems likely that these were medical isotopes and may not be hugely dangerous.

  • Heltau

    So, who is going to be the first to get bombed by islam?
    The great satan, United States, or the little satan, Israel, or some other country at their whim?
    Only time will tell. However, I KNOW old obummer knows who and maybe even telling islam whom to do it to.
    Just thinking don’t-cha know.
    Thanks for letting me comment here if this is accepted.

      Kimmy is trying too. An EMP will do enough damage…

      • Dr. Doomsday

        An Imp with an EMP

  • Sooner or later, ISIS will get ahold of this radioactive material.

    Could be worse. Iridium-192 (symbol 192Ir) is a radioactive isotope of iridium, with a half-life of 73.83 days. That means after three months, over half of it has already decayed. Another 3 months and over half of the remainder is gone – and so on and so on. After a year, only 5% remains. Gotta consider – how long was it in storage already before it went missing?

    Nothing that is going to do much harm to the environment in the long term. Iridium-192 is a strong gamma ray emitter commonly used as a gamma ray source in industrial radiography to locate flaws in metal components. [Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotopes_of_iridium%5D

    The CIA should do us all a favor and send Obama’s family over to investigate this dangerous situation. He doesn’t mind putting the American peoples’ security on the line so why should we ever care about his family.

  • Drew the Infidel

    This has been a raghead objective for a long time. It is a matter of record bin Laden himself attempted a purchase of radioactive material but was burned in a scam. Consider the Swiss cheese characteristics of the border with Mexico and it becomes a very real danger.

  • Don Grantham

    “The material, stored in a protective case the size of a laptop” OR a Clockmed alarm clock… seriously, they’ll have no problem getting this deployed. The groundwork has already been set up; liberal activists will make certain anyone who objects is called a bigoted racist Nazi Islamophobe.
    On the positive side, dirty bombs kill liberals as easily as everything else.

    • joc22

      And after they do explode one in a major city in North America or send a couple to explode 500km above us. Can we go Liberal hunting? LOL

  • Ektor

    The Dictator is too busy “mosquing” his way around the country extolling the virtues of the religion of peace to be concerned with what ISIS is doing. This has all been covered up by the media and Obama’s advisers because they do not want him to look as bad as he really is.

    I’ve just found out that in perhaps the worst drought in Los Angeles history, older, unsecured, but fully functional reservoirs are being decommissioned — because of their lack of security. Gee, I wonder what they’re afraid of? Why should a water reservoir need to be secured? I seem to remember the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem wanted to poison Tel Aviv’s water supply…

    They have all they need to get a nuke… the oil fields, which as trump said should have been seized, yrs ago. It will be a miracle if , with their vast oil wealth, they dont nuke us! anks, again to obama, for pulling out the 10 thous troops, that were stabilizing iraq. Really was worth it, moron!!

  • billwhit

    We need to air drop Obama over ISIS territory, without a parachute! Actually, we should turn Obama over to them, they would use the Homo boy as a Tea Boy, one that the warriors use to relieve themselves with before going into battle! Obama loves the gay bathhouses, so I am sure he would not mind being used as a Tea Boy!

  • Kjeld Hesselmann

    The Moslem terrorists that be Daesh, al-Qaeda, al-Shabab, Boku Haram and much other with crazy names, try all to scare the hell out of everybody with their violent threats. – Much better that the world opposing Islam made itinerary stop the Islamic fascists.
    We must ally with Israel, UK, France, India, China, and Russia, then drop one nuke on a random Muslim target every three days until all Muslim sovereignties Worldwide criminalize Islam. Every Muslim government criminalizing Islam comes off the target list, getting to keep their power and territory. The Muslims would get on board with the program real quick.
    Muslim governments who resist watch their cities get vaped one at a time until they
    lose the will to resisting. Then the Allies divide up their territory, install our own governments, and exploit their resources for ourselves.
