Times Square Car Bomb
No matter who is responsible for the Times Square failed car bomb incident, it illustrates how easily radioactive material could be dispersed over a hugely populated area. With radioactive material so loosely handled overseas in places like India where Cobalt-60 sickened people in a scrap metal yard in New Delhi recently, it’s not a stretch to imagine terrorists putting dirty nuke material in an SUV like the one found near Times Square with a simple explosive device like rigged up propane tanks. With the ease thousands stream across our porous borders carrying drugs and weapons under armed protection by the Mexican drug cartels, the threat of these same routes becoming a conduit for radioactive material smuggled from Europe is a very real concern. I hope after this near tragedy in New York City, coupled with the May Day marches on our streets by illegal alien invaders in the tens of thousands will force our citizenry to connect the dots. Arizona and other states adopting an enforcement stance against illegal invasions of our border may very well prevent a catastrophic attack.
