"The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program - a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium - reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans."What? But the media made such a big deal saying that there wasn't any potential for WMD in Iraq?? You mean -- the media lied to make a better story??
Yes - this is the stuff that is used as 'seedlings' for a nuclear bomb...the top dog of WMD.
So how much? 550 metric tons. That's 606 1/4 Tons(US). That's 1,212,542,442 pounds of radio-active uranium. Last year it was selling for $120/lb ... so that would be $145,505,093,040.00 . Well lets see -- it takes about 55 lbs of the stuff to make a nuke, and way less than that for dirty bombs.
So they saved the world from over a million terrorist acts!
