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.”

    We are going to see a World Wide War over this.
    They are coming for every one of us. The idea is terrorize everyone into submission. It will not work.
    This is going to be a time when our major cities are at risk of being bombed.
    With that in mind, I think we need to hit them with everything we have available BEFORE they can assemble this material and attempt to set it off in one of our major population centers. Yes, D.C. is one of those centers targeted. NYC is another prime target.
    WHEN and IF that occurs there will be no safe place for anyone to hide against the retribution that will occur. It will give a whole new meaning to the words “scorted Earth” policy. Once it begins it can only end one way. It will end when side is no longer alive.
    This group is not against the United States alone. They will go against anyone that opposes them. That includes both China and Russia. So any aid they get from those countries might backfire big time on them. The last one that scared everyone into cooperating with one another was Hitler.
