Saw this earlier. It was posted to reddit on the /r/nosleep subreddit. Sort of makes it automatically illegitimate. Sort of. I've seen a few things that were posted that unfortunately panned out.

I think the chance of this being legit is hovering around 1%, still, it's an interesting little story.

I'll give you the TL;DR. The author is/was allegedly an embedded journalist with a group of rebels in Syria. Saw some stuff, and some things. Rebels got hold of a 'suitcase nuke'. He signs out as Marc. This is the only thing he posted on the site. That's pretty easy to do though.

Here's this:


A veteran Spanish war correspondent has been kidnapped by insurgents in Syria, his newspaper reported Tuesday.
The reporter, Marc Marginedas, has been missing since Sept. 4, the last day that he contacted the newspaper, El Periodico de Catalunya, which is based in Barcelona.
The newspaper reported that it appears that Marginedas, 46, was kidnapped by jihadi combatants near the city of Hama, in western Syria.

Not hard to do, Google a name of a kidnapped journalist. Easy to set up that little suspicion and faux credibility. Easy to explain away the date the guy says he lands if he's protecting people and changing names/places anyway to protect his sources.


Hello, my name is Marc and I’m a journalist for a fairly large news corporation. I won’t state my last name or the news company I work for, for my own protection. I’m currently writing this from a medium sized town somewhere in Syria. I’m able to have access to the internet right now thanks to a portable router I have. I’ll try and keep this as short as possible while giving as much information as I can. This message NEEDS to get out to the public.



I’m posting this on reddit because I know that you people can get this story out better than any other website. I can’t say for a fact that, that box contained nukes, but there is enough evidence that leads me to believe it does. This has to be known to the public. Somewhere out in the middle of Syria there are rebels with a possible nuke. If the rebels use this/these nukes who knows what the outcome will be. I do know though that the use of a nuclear weapon has the potential to throw the entire world into chaos. Where the box is now, I'm not sure of. It could be in the hands of more rebels or the Syrian government may have gotten it back. Where ever it is though, the public NEEDS to know about this and something is going to have to be done before things hit the fan.
John and Lewis, I’m emailing this to you guys so you can inform my family and friends of what has happened to me. Tell Britney I love her and I’m going to do everything in my power to get home safely.
To everyone reading this, I don’t know what the future holds. This could lead to something worse than anything that has ever happened before. If this message isn’t shared and the nuke(s) goes off, no one will know the truth. This story may be the only way people will know what really happened.
God Bless, Marc


/r/nosleep would be a weird place to post it. That would be like me posting something crazy to General Chit Chat.


I'm going to link the thread, but as usual NSFW applies. bad language etc. Don't be a candy donkey.

The Thread, The OP is Very Long

Possible link to Benghazi? There was something in the compound they were there for. I think many of us discussed such a scenario.

If you ask me... (and, you didn't, but what the hell
)

Far too an elaborate, well thought out, and well written piece of prose from someone who just had their ass nearly shot off... nearly blown up... and then saw a nuke... and survived to tell the tale...

A more accurate of an account, from someone who endured such an ordeal, and knew that there was a live suitcase nuke floating around... well... I'm guessing it would look more like this:

Holy &^*^%*& crap!!

Tell my editor I %*%%$ quit!

Wait til you hear this %^^!!

So, they are dragging my ass around, and there's bullets... and holy ^&*! I just %^ my pants! Twice. Then, they drag around some more and I'm dodging ^%&%#^$ bullets and &%$, and guess what! A $#^*() bomb goes off behind us, knocks me on my ass. They drag my soiled ass up, and into this house and GUESS WHAT THE ***& they have??? A #$^%$&*^ nuclear %^%$&, atomic #$&%% bomb!! #^^&%* looked live, too!

Don't know who has it... don't give a &^%*&.

I'm outta here... tell my wife to get the ^&%&^% to the cabin way the *^%* out of town!

Or something to that effect... just sayin'

Or the CIA have there dirty hands in this and want a scapegoat when they blow up somebody / something. It is not hard to put something up on the internet. If one goes up it will be impossible to tell who set it off, absolutely impossible.

Or this is just nothing but an attention seeking twit.

Well they're tied to it either way if the story is true. But there were boxes remove from that compound. Benghazi was a big deal. The whole Syria thing is much more than what it appears to be.

Ill grant there is a LOT at stake in Syria.........but suitcase nukes?
Sounds dodgy at best.....confirmation will be surely forthcoming if the message is real......
Friends,family etc will be consulted by somebody I hope.....or come forward on their own....
Meanwhile the chances this leads back to Bengzai are slim IMHO...but who can say...............

suitcase nukes require far far far far more technologicl sophistication to create and maintain than any one but the US, Russia and maybe china can support. suitvcase nukes require an evenly diffused doping by a shortlived radioactive gas called tritium. if the pit is not periodically re processed to keep the tritium refreshed the tritium will decay in 11 years. the amount of tritium needed required a production facility dedicated to producing it in the quantities necessary. The US no longer has such a facility. i think the russians do. china has specifications for miniaturized nukes since the clinton administration allowed them to "acquire" detailed information schematics and specifications for our W54 warhead. but it is unknown if they ever made such a facility or made such nukes to my knowledge. any old soviet suitcase nukes would be decayed beyond use by now except for spreading fissile material in a dirty but conventional explosion using the implosion initiating high explosive charge around the pit. also if the russian have maintained the tritium facilites and a rogue actor did use a suitcase nuke the world would know that it was a newly minted bomb and no accident that it came into the possession of said actor. in short russia would be the "glow in the dark kind of screwed" such a device was used. if china did it it might take a while to find out but we would find out. and they are even in less a position to sustain a viable nuclear exchange with the U.S. than russia is. this despite their modernization program, bunker systems, and undeclared numbers of nuclear weapons. they say they have approximately 300 but we know probably they have about 3000.

If I got abducted by terrorists while I was doing some reporting in the Middle East, I think I just might post my updates in General Chit Chat.

So rebels have the theoretical nuke. With the events in Ukraine and the Olympics going on, there could be some interesting ways to play that.
I doubt they would have made it themselves.

Ok after reading this post on reedit, I don't know, I saw a couple of things I saw that seemed off to me.

First there was this


The leader of the unit was a large, hefty man. Battle hardened by all the fighting he had been through and seen. Although he admittedly wasn’t the best leader, his men admired him deeply. I will refer to him as Erol. Halil informed me that Erol had been a bar tender before the war broke out. He was deeply attached to his Islamic faith and inspired many men to fight in the name of Allah. He was said to be high up in the Syrian Rebel’s chain of command. This would lead to me finding myself in the situation that I am now.


Ok my first question is, is do deeply religious Muslims drink? No... So what was this a tourist town? Or was he serving alcohol to Muslims? I am confused on this one fact alone.

Next thing I found odd about this more than anything was how it was written. I understand he is a journalist, however if he was concerned for what he saw, more importantly about what may happen with said "box" why would you waste the time of adding all the fluff and filler when you are attempting to get information out to warn someone. I can understand if you were sending it in as your "article" but according to this he was trying to warn people about this possible "nuke". So again the embellishment of bullets and explosions etc seems to much "story" not an urgent message of warning of a possible nuclear attack by either forces..

That is my take on it, and reading some of the comments on reedit I am not alone on those thoughts. However I do hope its a story none the less. I guess time will tell either way.

Not all the women that work at strip clubs strip.

I don't think the story is legit, but I don't think a Muslim serving drinks is the weak point in the story. Good catch, but there are people that deal drugs who won't touch the stuff and never have.

There's also this;


In Islam taqiyya تقية (alternative spellings taqiyeh, taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation,[1] or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.


Not sure if accurate and too lazy to Google twice, but my understanding is that a Muslim is allowed to drink alcohol, eat pork, pork (verb) and do anything else to mask themselves if they are trying to hide and fight.

Not sure if a Muslim is allowed to sell things they aren't supposed to consume, but it wouldn't surprise me. Weaken the enemy and whatnot.

Quote - "El objetivo de este tercer viaje a Siria, explica el diario, era "informar sobre los preparativos para afrontar una intervención militar internacional que en esos momentos se consideraba muy próxima e investigar sobre el ataque con armas químicas del pasado 21 de agosto en las afueras de Damasco".

Marginedas was going to report on the international mlitary intervention that was about to happen, and investigate the attacks with chemical weapons.
So, if anyone has him..it's the CIA backed Jihadis, beacuse the chemical attacks were a false flag, and they didnt want anyone sticking their noses in.

Quote - "Marginedas envió su última crónica el lunes 2 de septiembre desde la localidad de Qasr Ibn Wardan, cerca de Hama, en la que relataba la decepción en las filas rebeldes al ver cómo se alejaba la perspectiva de un ataque inminente estadounidense."

Marginedas sent his last message the 2nd of Sept say that the "The rebels were feeling betrayed after seeing that the USA would'nt be attacking". So, the message on reddit is probably just crap. After the world found out the attacks were a false flag the US had to back down from it's high horse.

Quote - "Marginedas había entrado en Siria el 1 de septiembre a través de Reyhanli (Turquía) acompañado por opositores del Ejército Libre Sirio (ELS), y este era su tercer viaje al país.

Marginedas entered Syria on the 1st of Sept, from Reyhanli, Turkey in the company of anti Free Syrian Army troops, it was his 3rd visit to the country.

So, he was there investigating the fact that the chemical attacks wernt legit, the fact that the rebels were now pissed because the fact the false flag attack hadn't worked, and this had blown their excuse for boots on the ground, and he was in the company of anti rebel forces....all in all not a good mix.


All quotes are from the EL MUNDO ONLINE Spanish Newsrag.

Agreed

This is why Uhbuma and Clinstone are fighting to keep everything covered up.
Their traitors!

As a Muslim you are not supposed to serve it to others, have it at or in your house, or drink it.

The taboo on alcohol is total. No religious Muslim would have anything to do with working in a club, even if they weren't serving it, because they are around others who are, the forbidden gathering if you will, is not allowed.

That said, not all people who are Muslim are religious... its kind of like the christian who calls himself a christian but is anything but, there are Muslims just the same, and through their actions you can tell whether or not they are religious...

So, serving alcohol in a bar of some kind, or even working in one, means he is not religious. Period. This makes him culturally "Muslim" according to western people, but not a person of faith even a little according to the religion.

I think this guy "Erol" went to the same mosque as Mohammed Atta...and probably the same strip joints.

Taqiyyah comes into play if your life is in danger. This is what taqiyyah is for.

Say someone is torturing me, and if they found out my faith they would kill me, it is allowed under such a circumstance to deny the faith in order to save your life. There is no sin on you if you deny faith at this time... and there is no sin on you if you do not deny your faith...

That is what taqiyyah is for.... its only in life and death situations. Pork is the same, if you are going to die of starvation, then it is allowed to eat pork in order to save your life...

but again, such things are life and death. Taqiyyah is not a mild little thing that means lie, it means you wont go to hell for something that would otherwise be a sin, because your life was in danger.

it may have been a plan a
Now, i wonder what's plan b

alcohol and pork can both be very bad for people especially in low water areas
