Baku, Azerbaijan, May 10
By Elmira Tariverdiyeva - Trend:
Western Civilization's worst fear is nuclear terrorism in the form of bombs, dirty and otherwise, detonated in populated European, Russian, American or Israeli cities by Jihadi terrorists, said the article published by the American Thinker.
The article's author thinks that the idea that Middle Eastern Arab terrorists like those of Al Qaeda and/or IS (aka ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh) stealing or buying black-market radioactive material - Uranium or Plutonium - with which to build bombs frightens the political leadership of the entire West and Russia.
The Reuters news agency on Apr. 18 reported that Georgia has "detained six Georgian and Armenian citizens who were trying to sell $200 million worth of uranium-238."
"The three Armenians were employees of the "Metsamor" nuclear power plant," said the article.
The author pointed out that Georgia State Security has not detected who the prospective buyer or buyers were but a process of deduction and the prospective sale price of $200 million eliminates Israel, the Arab Sunni states, Turkey and Iran.
That report originated in Armenia and appeared in the "The WorldPost" (the Huffington Post" in an article written by the correspondent for the Post based in Armenia.
The author also said that Armenia will continue its attempts to smuggle nuclear material through Georgia because Armenia is land-locked and Georgia has ports on the Black Sea that enable smugglers to move contraband to the world.
"If the Georgian Security people pulled off their "sting" by posing as Middle Eastern Arab terrorist buyers, isn't that an indication that there are real Arab terrorist buyers in the market to buy contraband nuclear material, the material needed to build bombs, dirty and otherwise?" said the author adding that where there are sellers, there are buyers.
