That is a hell of a lot nuclear material, and of weapons grade quality! Boom! Now, lets not head to the hills just yet. I would like to learn more about this before drawing any conclusions. So far I have seen a few articles about it, but if this is indeed real? Why is there not a congressional inquiry or how come it is not all over the MSM?

This is definitely a concern for public safety not only for a potential dirty bomb, but what if this stuff is in a civilian warehouse or some of it is in a guy's garage? It would give off high levels of radiation which would pose a serious health risk. Perhaps, orders got crossed and this stuff was sent to somewhere by mistake instead of its intended destination? We know quite well all the times the USPS has messed up our shipping on a smaller scale. I would not be surprised if the shipping departments from which this stuff went through screwed-up as well?

Mistakes happen, and no country or government agency is immune from it. This would be a mistake of epic proportions if it turns out to be true. Heads will definitely have to roll on this one, and a stringent audit would have to be taken at all nuclear sites. Hopefully, after the inventory, we can get some kind of idea where it all is and how we can recover it? I will be watching this thread closely!

18 tons of nuclear material thay is unaccounted for. I'll take bets that a large part of it is sitting in some Government warehouse mislabeled.

Nobody is mentioning the hundreds of tons of nuclear material that Russia can't account for, including entire warheads.


Not to mention 10-12 "suitcase bombs" with nuclear capability that went missing after the fall of Communism. I would not be the least surprised if every Nation on Earth has at least a little material of their very own.

36,000 pound of weapons grade plutonium...????? Seems like an awful lot of stuff to go missing....mmm???

maybe, just maybe ----- THIS IS A BULL # ARTICLE FROM A BULL # WEB-SITE.....

Yet another reason why ATS is dead....you guys will believe anything....



Ha ha ha, ATS dead? ATS traffic is growing at an exponential rate! ATS has many millions of page views monthly! If you went to a beach and scooped up a handful of sand you would have around a million grains of sand. Think about that for a moment buddy! The truth will set you free my man!

That said I don’t see weapons grade stuff just vanishing, but I am sure plenty of low grade stuff has. Plutonium is not some rare material or anything. Here is a youtube video on how to make your own. Followed by a video that details how to separate the Uranium from the plutonium.







As shown in the last video you can even enrich your Uranium, but unless you have a few mines and a power plant or two at your disposal you will not be building any bombs.

There are no nuclear secrets left, well with the exception of number of war heads and type etc... Nuclear scientists can be found in every country on earth.





You want some Uranium? Just look on ebay, or better yet pitch blend is abudent in nature!

I have really been considering a little reactor and steam turbine for my home. "Kidding, although I wish it were possible!"



I saw a news story on Fox the other day. about how Pakistan shared nuclear secrets, and folks were ready for war. I have to ask what secrets? Unless they handed out U235 I am sure they have done much less than most of our Universities. It amazes me how blood thirsty Americans can be!

I've always wondered why the US doesn't figure prominently in End Time prophecy. Perhaps it is because by that time, the US has been nuked and is no longer a major player in world events. The Bible makes it pretty clear that Israel will stand alone against the armies of the world and the Antichrist.

We could be in for a big surprise.

What purpose would it serve other than giving them nukes basically? You don't need weapons grade for nuke energy.


A false flag, as a poster above mentioned. Seriously, expect a "nuclear attack" somewhere. I'm guessing.

oh come on! I know ways that we can benifit from that stuff.

Truth be told that radioactive materials are relatively safe. You can hold it all day in your hand and not suffer any ill-effects.

and I know how to neutralize it from far away distances. What I'm learning is breaking all of the laws of science and I love it!

Orgone science, Aether physics, somethings that are not taught in high school, college or universities in the US.

not alot of people heard of it because it's useful and dangerous if you don't know what your doing.

This is future science, the best way to tap into the the Zero-point Energy field.

So far I have built 3 devices that are so simple that you wouldn't believe it, and so far they have gotten rid of the smells that no air freshener could cover, and has made some of the food I eat taste richer than ever. And I has given me a lot more energy so I don't need as much sleep.

Zero point energy huh? That yellow cake uranium from the video above can really improve the taste of food, but it will kill you man. What exactly are you eating?

Well this is cheery news. Don't worry, the The Government Accountability Office (lulz) is on the case. Oh yeah.

Then there is the question of why the US is giving away nuclear material under sketchy "cooperation agreements" in the first place. Twenty-seven of them.

Well, I'm sure some fancy new TSA scanners will protect America, right?

Down with the TSA, what an incompetent bunch there. They should have hired the Marx brothers to put together a security program.

Yes.. way serious. I don't know why this isn't the biggest story in the news. They could literally let a few "fat man" sized nukes off in every state with that amount of weapons grade nuclear material. Why on earth would we give that away. I didn't see in the OP, was there a list of the countries we "gave" it to?

Scary stuff man.
I wonder though, if a country that isn't nuclear made a bomb wouldn't it likely be huge. I mean weren't the hiroshima and nagasaki bombs pretty big for small (in terms of nuclear) payloads? I know that we have progressed and can make them smaller, but could a country that is making this kind of weapon for the first time do anything but those huge weapons of days gone by?

Love the way they just bring this story out about Parkistan. Maybe to hide the fact that the sneaky US has actully just given away Uranium for weapons. Wouldnt surprise me if good old anti nuclear New Zealand has some hiding here down under. Key is a globalist banker way back.

I never said I eat it, I said handle it. As well, yellow cake uranium is a tool, not an ingredient. As well you can use it to do a lot of things because it holds massive amounts of energy. Even a little bit of radium can produce 4 million electron volts, enough to power 2 blocks of houses for years.

Upcoming fox special: Iran's Nuclear Secrets.
More propaganda supporting a war with Iran. I really don't want to not find WMD's in another country. I wonder if Iran is broadcasting an American's Nuclear Secrets anytime soon. I mean we just lost more weapons grade nuclear material than Iran could produce in 50 years probably.

I imagine They have hold of some degree of the tech that has developed. Unknown what percentage, but My guess would be as high as 80%. So I don't envision a much less sophisticated a device from another country over, the US. But if it is a false flag, chances are it's to motivate the American People done by Those who have the power.

Not some disgruntled country - though that will be where the finger is pointed. Like 9/11, some innocents will be blamed and all hell will break lose.

The U.S. Is Unable To Account For 36k Pounds Of Weapons Grade Uranium And Plutonium





1 Cubic Meter of Plutonium weighs: 19800kg
37000 Pounds of Plutonium is equal to : 16818KG

That's probably smaller that the box you flat screen came in.

So how much of this stuff do you need to make a bomb?

Source

Implosion-type weapon

Fat Man, the Nagasaki bomb, used 13.6 lb (6.2 kg, about 12 fluid ounces or 350 ml in volume) of Pu-239, which is only 39% of bare-sphere critical mass. (See Fat Man article for a detailed drawing.) Surrounded by a U-238 reflector/tamper, the pit was brought close to critical mass by the neutron-reflecting properties of the U-238. During detonation, criticality was achieved by implosion. The plutonium pit was squeezed to increase its density by simultaneous detonation of the conventional explosives placed uniformly around the pit. The explosives were detonated by multiple exploding-bridgewire detonators. It is estimated that only about 20% of the plutonium underwent fission; the rest, about 11 lb (5.0 kg), was scattered.



So by my calculations that means there is enough to make

2700 Fat Man Bombs





That must be the mother of all " " ups.
