    Author says prepare for nuclear terror
    Former official: Not trying to cause panic, but prevent it

    U.S. officials should get serious about nuclear terrorism by urging Americans to prepare for disaster by stockpiling food, water, building shelters and planning evacuation routes, says an author and former member of the Indiana House of Representatives.

    In response to reports al-Qaida is planning an "American Hiroshima" nuclear attack on the U.S. using weapons and operative already smuggled into the country, Don Boys, author of Islam: America's Trojan Horse, says he is not trying to panic the public.

    "In a few days or weeks, everyone who has not prepared for disaster will panic," he says. "I would like for you to realize that you may have already waited too long to properly prepare, and if you wait much longer, it will be too late to buy gold, guns, and groceries. ... The name of the game will be survival, only survival. Forget the job since it will be gone. Your Social Security or pension check? Don't count on it. Protection from local authorities? Probably not. You will be on your own."

    Boys bases his advice on the words of U.S. officials – from President Bush to Vice President Dick Cheney to the directors of the FBI and Homeland Security – who have said nuclear terrorism is the greatest threat facing the nation and a virtual inevitability at some point.

    "If U.S. officials are wrong and there is no danger from terrorists ... then breathe a sigh of relief, thank God for His mercy and continue with your life," he says. "However, if you are wrong (and U.S. officials are right), you and your family will be cold, hungry, and dependent on others to provide for your basic needs. Is it wise to take such an unnecessary risk?"

    Boys suggests Americans purchase non-electric tools, guns, ammunition, food and toilet paper. He says it would be wise to set aside small bills as well as quarters.

    "A few boxes of No-Rad (potassium iodide anti-radiation tablets) will be more valuable than gold if you are in a contaminated area," he says. "Get a supply today."

    WND has reported that captured al-Qaida leaders and documents outline plans for a devastating terrorist nuclear attack on the U.S. – plans that have been under way for more than a decade. The reports are confirmed by author Paul Williams in his upcoming book, "The Al Qaeda Connection."

    Intelligence analysts and sources disagree on the details of the way bin Laden's "American Hiroshima" plan unfolds. Some G2 Bulletin sources emphasize bin Laden's commitment to re-enacting the 1945 attack on Japan with one nuclear detonation, followed by another days later.

    Williams, however, sees a much more devastating, coordinated, all-out, surprise attack coming.

    "The next attack, according to al-Qaida defectors and informants, will take place simultaneously at various sites throughout the country," he writes. "Designated targets include New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Houston, Las Vegas, and Valdez, Alaska, where the tankers are filled with oil from the Trans-Alaska pipeline. To orchestrate such an incredible event requires not only the shipment of the nukes into the United States but also the establishment of cells, the training of sleeper agents, the selection of sites, and the preparation of the weapons without detection from federal, state or local law enforcement officials. Unlike 9-11, that cost less than $350,000, this event already has cost a king's ransom, and bin Laden will not waste the billions in expenditures, the years of planning and his coveted 'crown jewels' on an attack that is ill-planned, poorly timed and carelessly coordinated."

    Other sources interpret some of the same information, based on captured al-Qaida operatives and documents as well as defectors, differently. They project an escalating series of attacks, each followed by blackmail demands upon the U.S. government and the American people. [/i]

    Where is a good place to buy No-Rad (potassium iodide anti-radiation tablets) and water purification tablets?

    You can get the No-rad at cheaper than dirt http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ctd/default.asp

    I would have a hard time with water at the moment aside from whats in the pool but beyond that my main thing is that I should pick up some extra ammo. Also, if you dont have the No-Rad you can apply straight iodine to your abdomen and it will absorb to do the same thing. I dont remember for sure but I think it is like 1 Tsp for adults like 2 times a day. I read about it on (IIRC) some FEMA or similar site.
    While a Heroshema would be possible I think dirty bombs would be FAR more likely which beyond ground zero dont tend to be fatal but rather greatly raise cancer and birth defect rates in years to come for a large area down wind and down stream.

    I am really hooked up at work right now,but in a few days when I get caught up I have some good info I'll be posting in the survival forum.One is about chem and nuclear de-contamination.Most people think that you need alot of special equipment and things but actually it can be done very easily with common materials.The main thing about radioctive poisoning is not to ingest any material.If you are downwind of a blast and outside the immediate damage zone then you can have a room in your house appointed for a safe room.Some towls and a roll of duct tape can effectively seal off a room to prevent fall out from entering.Gas masks will get you through the first few hours and then the de-contamination can begin.Most radioctive fall out will dissapate within a few hours to a few days depending on wind,rain etc.If you can get inside and isolate yourself and stay put for a couple of days you should be fine.Depending of course on your proximity to the blast.
