What if ISIS Has a Dirty Bomb?

June 10, 2015

Everyone is concerned about Iran getting a nuclear bomb, well – everyone but Obama and the remaining people who still trust him – but what about ISIS?

If ISIS had the materials to make a “dirty” nuclear device, don’t you think they’d use it?

According to a new report from the Independent, this could happen…

Isis’s dirty bomb: Jihadists have seized ‘enough radioactive material to build their first WMD’

The Isis militant group has seized enough radioactive material from government facilities to suggest it has the capacity to build a large and devastating “dirty” bomb, according to Australian intelligence reports.

Isis declared its ambition to develop weapons of mass destruction in the most recent edition of its propaganda magazine Dabiq, and Indian defence officials have previously warned of the possibility the militants could acquire a nuclear weapon from Pakistan.

According to the Australian foreign minister, Julie Bishop, Nato has expressed deep concerns about the materials seized by Isis from research centres and hospitals that would normally only be available to governments.

The effects of a dirty bomb wouldn’t be nearly as devastating as a real nuclear bomb but the economic effects would be very serious. Just imagine a major city being off limits for months.
