Kansas City getting new nuclear weapons plant


www.publicbroadcasting.net

KANSAS CITY, MO. (St. Louis Public Radio) - A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled this week at a site in Kansas City where parts for nuclear weapons will be made. However workers at the new plant will not handle radioactive material.

Honeywell plans to employ 2,100 people there; the facility will replace an older one at the Bannister Federal Complex.

That plant already produces 85 percent of the non-nuclear parts that go into a typical weapon

I love how on one hand the U.S. can condemn Iran for wanting nuclear power, but on the other hand can continue to make nuclear weapons.

This plant will be replacing an older plant already producing parts. It will also be the only privately developed plant that makes nuclear weapon components.

Honeywell can barely make a thermostat that works correctly. I am afraid that now the company will be making components that will go into nuclear weapons.

Why are nuclear weapons still being made in the U.S.?
Why can't the U.S. just lead by example and at least pretend to get rid of their nukes?

Its not that "additional" ones are being made but rather ones are being "replaced". Nukes do have a shelf-life so these are not for additional nukes but to replace pre-existing ones.

I understand that the U.S. will never get rid of their arsenal, but what I want to know is, Who in the government is going to profit from Honeywell getting awarded this contract?

That seems to be the way of TPTB, handing out contracts to private companies that will line the pockets of TPTB.

Years ago...in fact 1991 at the gulf war... i suggested that Kansas City would be the city that got bombed instead of Oklahoma City in 1995...
mainly because they had facilities that produced components for nukes.

...nukes that made the world 'safe' for US Business & USA hegemony in the world.

heres the long deal...the business called Allied Signal got merged into 'Honeywell', Allied had plenty of expertise of making total jet engines and APUs (auxilary power units) for commercial jet fleets and the still secret 'Stealth' fighters & bombers... this was back before i even worked at the Phoenix plants from 90-97.


i still say that the metaphysical 'omen/dark-shadow' still hangs over Kansas City (on the Kansas side) from the psychic warning i first got back in 1991.

as far as business goes... these bomb components are one of the few industrial production facilitiy items that are not off-shored or out-sourced to foreign nations (who could 'turn-on-a-dime' in their support of the USA) considering the financial crisis/turmoils that is taking place in the world community.
I do not see the suspension of manufacturing nuclear bomb components as a viable (la-la-liberal) option ,in a world where nuclear poliferation is taking place...to wit: N Korea, possibly Iran...Israel

I wonder what would happen if all the corporations involved in producing America's nuclear components all band together and develop their own nuclear arsenal, along with enough funding to hire private armies to gain territory?

They would probably invade Canada first.

Another line.

they're already doing that
and calling it capitalism.

But seriously
i thought we were not making any
more nukes ????
yet we have a new facility making them???
Did I miss something???

Probably, but the Canadians would destroy the Pentagon and the White House so where would all the propaganda come from to feed the war.

I was more or less pointing out nuclear weapon material production by private corporations. It isn't at all out of the question to assume that private interests, aside from only governments, can develop and use nuclear weapons.

Almost everything is produced by a private corporation, down to the last bullet. Even in Canada.

Large projects such as nuclear weapons programs or even space programs might seem to be government controlled, but in reality, private corporations make up the entire list of assemblers and parts suppliers.

When looking at this particular project, think of the military industrial complex. The interest of these corporations is to keep the interest self-perpetuating. It is almost always impossible to get rid of such a complex once created because of the amount of newly dependent voters, jobs, corporate profits involved.

Then they will invade Canada.

Not so much here. There's a difference between private and public corporations, Canadian government itself is composed of ministries which are basically companies under the government umbrella. In the US, globalist corporations have much more play in government operations (because Canadian has much greater socialist policies).
