ISIS Has Seized 88 Pounds Of Uranium In Northern Iraq

Tyler Durden's picture


With the mainstream media having moved on in the news cycle to Dow 'almost' 17,000 and the 'Border Crisis' Scandal, it seems The Islamic State (the terrorists formerly known as ISIS) have stepped up their game and come out swinging... by seizing 88 pounds of nuclear material (uranium compounds) from Mosul University. As Iraq's UN Ambassador warned, "these nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, "can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction... or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts."


As Reuters reports, insurgents in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country's north, Iraq told the United Nations in a letter appealing for help to "stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad."

Nearly 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University, Iraq's U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.


"Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state," Alhakim wrote, adding that such materials "can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction."


"These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts," said Alhakim.

The US is playing down the threat (for a change)

A U.S. government source familiar with the matter said the materials were not believed to be enriched uranium and therefore would be difficult to use to manufacture into a weapon.


Another U.S. official familiar with security matters said he was unaware of this development raising any alarm among U.S. authorities.

But, ironicaly, it is is Iraq that is most worried about the nukes...

"The Republic of Iraq is notifying the international community of these dangerous developments and asking for help and the needed support to stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad," Alhakim wrote.




"It also provides for expanded cooperation between and among states regarding rapid measures to locate and recover stolen or smuggled nuclear material, mitigate any radiological consequences of sabotage, and prevent and combat related offences," according to the IAEA.

Another great addition to ISIS Annual Report and another potentially terrifying prospect for the rest of the world... all this as rockets from Gaza fall around Israel's Dimona nuclear facility also... Should be good for guaranteeing Dow 17,000 tomorrow...

Whenever you read a news article that gives a very specific number "88" for a quantity which doesn't need to be so specific. You need to evaluate the number for significance. "88" is a reference to nazi's or "HH". Much like lighting bolts as reference to Hitlers SS. This is a signifier that a plan is coming to fruition.

Reuters of course is mastered by British MI who represent the Nazi continuum.

If only the University of Mosul had had the good sense to hold only 36.75136kg of uranium instead of 40. Because that would have been exactly 81 pounds instead of 88, and then instead of Hitler and the Nazis, all we would have to worry about would be the HA, or Hells Angels.

What in the hell were 88 lbs of that shit doing in Iraq?  Was it the Bush administrations decision to leave it over there?  Who else has 88 lbs or so in the area?  Is this verifiable or part of some false flaggers wet dream?

Just exactly what were those 88 pounds used for and when did the material arrive?  If it supported experimentation, then let's get a release of the list of experiments that were done with it.   If that stuff has been there ever since Bush, how in the hell could they be looking for WMD, and then overlook this stuff?  It's just not adding up.

ISIS keeps hitting the jackpot in Iraq. First it gets it's hands on sarin gas and cyanide a couple of weeks ago... stuff the U.S. was supposed to have destroyed but now say they left behind and now nuclear material.


"UN weapons inspectors reported in 2004 that Bunker 13 housed 2,500 sarin-filled chemical rockets and about 180 tons of sodium cyanide, “a very toxic chemical and precursor for the warfare agent tabun.”


This must be Netanyahus wettest dream come true. If ISIS has not not gone rogue and is still under control of the GCC/CIA/Mossad and Bandars Boys then the FALSE FLAG target just may be Israel rather than Syria or Saudi Arabia.

Launch this stuff from Gaza/West Bank/Syria/Jordan/Sinai and Israels borders will immediately expand as a "protective measure"and not a "peep" will be spoken against the action.

Maybe ISIS just ran out of fancy dinnerware due to all the bombing. All civilized caliphates must break out the good china once in awhile for dinner parties and formal beheadings.

Uranium compounds have been used to color glass and ceramics for centuries. Some uranium compounds were used for this purpose until quite recently. In fact, a popular type of dishware known as "Fiesta Ware" made in the 1930s and 1940s sometimes used uranium oxide as a coloring material.

I'm thinking you could easily find 88 pounds of uranium compounds in a day or two just by wandering around Falluja with a metal detector and a Geiger counter, gathering exploded shell fragments left there by someone.

Nah. When those rounds burn off, the uranium turns to a very fine dust that is easily inhaled, so all that uranium is slowly killing all those people, and our soldiers, and especially young children who were near by after the DU was used. Prob have to scrap it out of dead people's lungs, bit by bit. Pretty messy job, id imagine

"Uranium metal also has a very unique property in how it reacts on impact.? Uranium is pyrophoric and auto-ignites when it is ground or ablated.?? Solid samples of uranium will not burn under normal circumstances, but granular uranium or uranium turnings will.? When a round strikes armor, tiny particles of uranium break free from the surface and ignite.? The friction of being pushed through the

target effectively grinds off a layer of material from the round, which burns, creating an aerosol of burning uranium which surrounds the round and cuts through the armor like a plasma lance."


And there is the "dirty bomb" that will possibly be heading Israels way and remaking the Middle East into a much more Kosher state...

According to Uranium quick facts, a gallon jug of uranium would weigh 150 pounds.  So this is about the size of a cantaloupe.

Not a big deal.  Maybe one dirty bomb.  They wouldn't have enough to test how much explosive to use, dispersal patterns, etc.  Their CIA handlers will have to help out a bit more.

They merely have to grind it up in an oxygen free chamber and then load it into a shell or missile and then detonate it. It will immediately burn and disperse in the the air... which is a very nasty thing to inhale into your lungs in even the minutest quantities. Not something Israel would ever allow to happen to one of it's cities without seizing everything within 200 miles of it's current borders I assure you.

Best part is that Israel doesn't even have to wait for them to use it against themselves or anyone else

They can simply "False Flag" themselves now and everybody will believe it came from ISIS.

Then they have a free hand remake the Middle East to something more to their liking.

All I want to know is what is Netanyahu waiting for?

ISIS has gone rogue and even Al Qaeda (Bandar) can't control them anymore?

Iraq WMD's (of some questionable sort) suddenly reappear?

When was the last time you saw Dick Cheney on TV?

Why all the MSM neocon coverage over the last several weeks?

Even Obama can't stop this if he wanted to once it starts... it's the neocons running this production for sure...

Remember Netanyahu fuming over Obamas unwillingness to engage in war on Syria? Iran?

Think anything has changed?


They need to start this war with the finacial system/economy in a functioning mode no questions about it.

So... "If not now then when?"... "If not ISIS (the worstest of the worstest) then who?"

There is an isotope of Uranium in naturally occurring uranium which occurs in minimal amounts and which is extracted out in those centrifuges to make bombs and fuel power plants. Eighty pounds of naturally occurring uranium is a poisoning hazard, not a severe radiation hazard. These eighty pounds sound more like a false flag fear inducer. Please, government save me from ISIS.

We have learned to escape, repress and deny our existential anxiety in many ways. Working to pay for things which we use to distract us from finding real meaning in our lives is but one.

Those mouth-breathers tend to hang out in lazy boy recliners staring at the corporate zio idiot box, and only boot up the computer twice a day to check their AOL.

They just LOVE being lied to...

Be on the lookout for more bs smokescreen stories if Israel decides killing 50 Palestinians isn't enough, and rolls tanks through Gaza.  If we get a Cast Lead 2.0 all the movie networks should play Schindler's List on a loop (so we all remember the eternal victim), until the Zionist Beast has temporarily satiated its appetite for Palestinian baby blood.
