    Attack on america

    Mahalo mr. Amtower for your reply. Interesting stats that appear to show about 103 views with only one reply.

    It is about 0612 hours hst (hawaii std. Time) and i received this morning an email from the president of pas; slick katz who rather chastised me for using a term to describe the islamic terrorists; i.e., the term 'r*g-h**d.

    I was a sort of shocked since i haven't posted on the notam board in years.

    He seemed to think some might find that term offensive. I don't. Your correct mr. Amtower this country needs a wake up and i mean as in 'yesterday'.

    You would not believe how many veterans i comm with via email who are 'not' members of pas who feel that the so called 'attack on america' is over and the bad guys have already won. Curiously every single one of these people whom i am referring to are all 'combat' vietnam veterans.

    This should scream volumes to most. I would have expected this from the political (non combatant) left in this country but not from combat veterans.

    I have several usmc friends whose kids are in the middle east; some on their third tours. My own have been in or near the sand box for the past few years. Before that they were out of japan playing with the guy with the bad hair cut in north korea.

    This country has, in the past taken a beating many times for being complacent.

    In my post i discussed the use of cobalt-60 as an easy weapon they could use because of it's irradiation and long half life. I know this stuff is easy to get. It is used in industrial radiation as i pointed out. This isotope is a by product of nuclear reactors (not always the type you see that produce energy); more like the type termed as 'breeder' facilities.

    Among other uses other than industrial irradiation to check for structural fatigue it is also used in large drive in buildings to irradiate produce and it is effective.

    The truck drives in; the driver gets out and leaves the building; then it is sealed and they remotely roll out a large lead box. Then by remote control it is opened and a single tablet the size of an aspirin is moved to expose the inside of the building with a high dose or radiation killing any organisms on the produce. Then it is returned to the box and sealed and the doors are opened and the driver gets in the truck and carries on.

    The irradiation does not contaminate the food; however if it were crushed to dust then it would contaminate everything. I once considered getting a license to use this material for industrial radiation. Too much paper work and more importantly too many larger companies with long standing municipal contracts made it rather un-cost effective.

    Which is to say that is how easy this stuff is to get. The 'nrc' will gladly send you a lot of nice colored brochures on this material along with photos of what happens if you make a mistake. Nrc (nuclear regulatory commission).

    The days of robert oppenheimer; while brilliant, are history. When i noted the 'bad guys' could easily manually detonate a so called 'gun-fired' nuke i was not kidding.

    Any college kid with a major in nuclear physics can fabricate one. Some think that is an urban myth. It is not.

    High energy radioactive materials like cobalt-60 if reduced to dust; produce first and foremost gamma irradiation. This is the same as bundled photon energy we get from the sun traveling at the speed of light. The secondary problem is particulate irradiation from alpha and beta particles.

    Does anyone know what hd-50/50 means? Also there is no such thing as a safe threshold dose of any form of radiation; none!!! 5,000 rads or more will kill you instantly. 3,000 rads will kill you in a week or so; and you will die very similar in the ways you've all read about of those who died from 'ebola'.

    Radiation is 'cumulative'. This goes for medical radiation as simple as a routine chest x-ray. The justification is that the risk is out weighed by the diagnostic value of the image via the exposure. I used to do about 5,000 films a year. I know what i am talking about.

    The guys in tehran know all about this stuff.

    This country does indeed need a wake up call.

    It's real; it's surprisingly simple and 99% of our population doesn't have a clue. My only solace is that i live in a remote area far from a target of opportunity and gamma radiation travels in a straight line; not the curve of the earth.

    As for my chastisement i remember vietnam very well, we referred to the vietcong or vc; as 'dinks' and other colorful terms like 'rice propelled bas*t**d's', etc. We were never censored for this.

    Well and clearly stated, Doc.
