"Terrorists can't make the Big 1"

Steve Chapman
February 7, 2008

Columnist for the Chicago Tribune maintains, that with all the worry American senior officials have gone through in the years since 9/11, the terrorists of the bin Laden persuasion are very highly UNLIKELY to either get their hands on an atomic bomb, obtain fissile material, bring one to the U.S., or get one [atomic bomb] to work.

The detonation or the simultaneous detonations of atomic weaponry in an American city or cities is the worse case scenario!!

But according to Chapman and his research, very UNLIKELY!?

Well, prior to 9/11, if someone had said that four American airplanes would be hijacked by nineteen terrorists, all done with clockwork synchronicity, two of the planes flown into the World Trade Center [WTC] buildings, bring down same [WTC], who would have believed??!!

If you were a betting man, which way would you go?

Me, I already have my anti-radiation pills on hand!! If I survive an atomic bomb detonation in or near Chicago, I am not taking further chances.

Terrorists like AQ seem to have a high prefeence for low technology, which may have to do with traceability of materials equipment and expertise. Though they use suicide bombers, they appear to be very cautious as to endangering the overall network, calling off attacks which had been planned for years as the big one of the year, out of fear of breaking up their networks. They seem to value organizational survival, or such is a conjecture based on news reports of AQ activities over the last decade or so. The expectation that they will soon move on up to high tech is actually likely to be wrong, as untraceable low tech and organizational impenetrability will remain the priorities with them.
