Sodium-22? Pffffffffffffft.....

And the mule was carrying it, radiating, on to a plane? Hmmmm.... so smart eh?

Even the stories are getting dumber by the day.

B.Y.O. "Yellow Cake"...this time they manufactured more than fairytales about precursors.

I am somewhat baffled that it was in Russia though...wonder if Pooty-poot was in on it or not.

The customs official was not notified of the agreement between Russia/Iran for the transfer of stealth drone data for nuclear materials.

Isn't sodium-22 used for medical purposes, i.e. a positron source for PET scans?

Yes, I read this as an overblown story by the media for ratings. Iran has already said they want/are doing research for medical purposes in regards to medicine. It is the western world that claims that Iran is lying and really trying to develop a radioactive bombs, dirty bombs or a nuclear warhead.

It makes no sense for Iran to try to sneak sodium 22 into their country. I do thinnk Iran wants and is trying to develop atomic technology for military purposes. They aren't the only one. This story is just a distraction.

All this western MSM chatter about Iran's alleged nuclear programs!

When is the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) going to investigate Israel’s Nuclear Weapons Program? MSM coverage has been completely one-sided. Israel has already violated every item it accuses Iran of allegedly violating.

Every point mentioned in the IAEA report on Iran’s Nuclear Program equally applies to Israel’s Nuclear Program.

-Does Israel have a secret nuclear weapons program: YES

-Has Israel allowed unfettered IAEA access and inspections of its nuclear facilities: NO

-Has Israel secretly built nuclear weapons: Almost Certainly

-Does Israel possess the delivery capability to execute an nuclear attack on its neighbors: YES

-Does Israel habitually threaten its neighbors with annihilation and initiate unprovoked attacks on its neighbors: YES

"Nuclear Threat is from Israel NOT Iran"

"Mordechai Vanunu worked as a nuclear technician at Dimona. A supporter of Palestinian rights, Vanunu believed it was his duty to warn the world about the danger Israel posed. In 1986, he smuggled out photographs showing that the plant was producing enough plutonium to make 10 to 12 bombs a year, and that at least 200 miniaturised bombs had been built."

Such an eloquent defense of the terrorist state Iran, it seems almost a shame to demolish it with the simple fact that Iran is a signatory nation to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty and Israel is not.  Neither is India, or Pakistan, both of which are nuclear armed and face none of your hatred, I guess if they had Jewish people they would.  Iran can simply withdraw if it so dislikes the constraints of the treaty, or it can go fuck itself for all I care, but the nutbags in Teheran must never get the bomb because they have proven over and over they are terrorists totally willing to use every evil tool at their disposal as long as it is non Shia infidels getting killed.

boiltherich offered us the following thoughtful insight:

Iran is a signatory nation to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty

Yes, they are, and they are in compliance with it.

Iran can simply withdraw if it so dislikes the constraints of the treaty, or it can go fuck itself for all I care, but the nutbags in Teheran must never get the bomb because they have proven over and over they are terrorists totally willing to use every evil tool at their disposal as long as it is non Shia infidels getting killed.

".... Iran is a signatory nation to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty and Israel is not.  Neither is India, or Pakistan, both of which are nuclear armed and face none of your hatred, I guess if they had Jewish people they would."

No hatred.  Digust.  Revulsion.  Yes.  But not at the "Jewish people".  At anyone that would tolerate or defend or do this:   

“UK Jewish MP:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMGuYjt6CP8 

 “Gaza is the Warsaw Ghetto - George Galloway - 2 Jan 09”:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrK90LvqbRk 

“IDF atrocities against Palestinian people”:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC4OZHDuxCw

 

People who do this have nuclear weapons?  Not good.

Hmmmmmmmm.............so if Iran repudiate their signature on the " Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty" then their behaviour is suddenly acceptable because by the letter of international law they're no longer breaking any agreements? Strange view.....

 

And, 

" Teheran must never get the bomb because they have proven over and over they are terrorists "

 

Now what is terrorism?.......

 

"the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

(From Dictionary.reference.com)

 

Now what other countries in the region have been known to act as such........and furthermore, what countries that do act as such are known to possess a nuclear weapon.??

20x background isnt that much, he probably had it in a good container for scientific usage, didnt fill out the papers in russia or something. Big deal.

Makes a good FUD headline though.

US quickly pulled out of Iraq for a reason....suddenly no longer responsible for the airspace over Iraq...easy run for the Israelis. This event seems almost as if Russia wants an event to occur....very interesting.

See? nothing to worry about.. International mystery solved.

Sodium 22 is for medical purposes. So this whole story is propaganda... 99% of people will only read ``nuclear material sent to Iran`` so people will think it's for nukes when it's definetly not.

What kind of game is Russia playing?

Russia's not playing the game. It's amateur hour; Hilary "Arkancide" Clinton is in charge of the State Department. It's another fucking amateur flase flag. Just like the fake Iran terror plot, just like Holder's false flag against the 2nd amendment, just like the swine flu, just like...

If you want something done right, it's got to be done by Cheney and Rumsfeld. Now that's professionalism.

I think "professionalism" may be a poor choice of words.  A more apt one, "ruthlessness" comes to mind.

Yeah, it doesn't make sense that they would announce this finding/arrest.  They've been building Iran's nuclear power plants, have said they would defend Iran, and now this?  Doesn't make sense, unless Putin is intimidated by the recent political machinations of Obama and Clinton.

In order to maintain political stability in mother russia, they'll need to partner up with the west...  as bad as that may be to them.  Further, the type of isotopes found seem to have plenty of plausible non-military purposes...  so, it doesn't help the case against Iran...  Russia gives the U.S. a good headline and appears to be a helper in kicking off WW3 while at the same time not really hurting Iran...

Seems to be more good political maneuvering to me...  maybe I'm a little simple though.
