Obviously the US does not need the poisonous U-238 for security as claimed.
The US is already the one and only super power and can destroy any enemy,
even the whole of humanity, at any time. In these perilous times, it is
not beyond possibility that an 'End Times Nuclear War' would be launched
by a religious Fundamentalist nutter Administration. They may think it
is time for the religious Armageddon that Fundamentalists believe was
promised in the Bible.
The so-called need for secrecy, as claimed, has to be translated.
It means that the Bush administration wishes to keep it secret from its
own people, and other nations, as they would disapprove.
Also, they have conditioned the American public not to question anything
the administration claims is "secret" or "for security"
Making such deadly material is itself a big security risk. If the US was
ever attacked, the plant making this material and storage casks, would
become targets, just like the 103 other nuclear power plants in the USA.
We will probably receive papers on the purpose of these secret devices,
and will post this information on our website.
Plans to Resume Plutonium 238 Production - Report
USA: June 28, 2005
NEW YORK - The United States plans to
produce highly radioactive plutonium 238 for the first time since the
Cold War, The New York Times reported on Monday.
The newspaper quoted project managers as
saying most, if not all, of the new plutonium was intended for secret
missions. The officials would not disclose details, but the newspaper
said the plutonium in the past powered espionage devices.
The Times said Timothy Frazier, head of radioisotope power systems at
the US Energy Department, vigorously denied in a recent interview any
of the classified missions would involve nuclear arms, satellites or weapons
"The real reason we're starting production
is for national security," Frazier was quoted as saying.
Officials at the Energy Department could
not be reached for comment. continue.
