I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade, but USSR special forces and KGB smuggled dozens, if not hundreds, of backpack and suitcase nukes into the
US during the cold war. No one knows what happened to those.
Also, Scientific American reported 80+ missing backpack nukes all the way back in 1996! These have a 3-5KT yield. To put that in perspective, say a
terrorist puts one in the center of Wall Street, lets just say for hypotheticals.
It detonates at ground level, of course, in some ways the large buildings act as a shield. Ok, everyone following, 10-15 blocks GONE in a blink of the
eye!!! Now, some @****** takes it up in the top of a skyscraper and detonates it! We now have an air burst! 20-25 blocks gone!
The number of dead, well, it makes me sick at my stomach! You'd better thank God, or whatever you believe, that CIA, FBI, and NSA are keeping this
stuff out of our country, at least trying to.
See, this is the problem with the 9/11 Truthers, no offense they make valid points, but Bin Laden went low tech because he couldn't find the nukes he
need to make a great big mess. Maybe there is some truth to the 9/11 truth movement, maybe, they are dead wrong. Either way, I shudder at the thought
of a nuclear terrorist act regardless of who flips the switch.
