Nuke threat on southern border? Texas game wardens issued radiation detectors
wnd ^ | 5/14/16 | staff

As if the U.S. isn’t facing enough threats from its southern borders, Americans can be concerned with yet another: terrorism in the form of nuclear weapons.

The potential for smuggling in nuclear or radioactive weapons of mass destruction has been suggested for a long time, and now the Long Star state is taking the threat more seriously.

Texas game wardens don’t just cover land issues such as poaching, wildlife management or even illegal chemical dumping. They’re also on the water, monitoring for fishing violations – and now, terrorism.

“One fear is that terrorists could try to smuggle radioactive material into the country by boat,” notes Houston Public Media. “The Port of Houston has for years had radiation detectors to scan cargo. So now, besides guns and handcuffs, game wardens will have one more tool.”

That tool is a device the size of a cell phone which detects radiological or nuclear emissions. It can be worn on a belt and can help a warden determine if something suspicious is radioactive.

Houston Public Media reports game wardens began training with the radiation detectors in January and completed a mock exercise to find radioactive packages along the coast.

Nuclear threats from terrorists have been causing greater concern since the Paris and Brussels attacks. President Obama, among other world leaders, faces the chilling prospect of rogue Islamic State terrorists unleashing a nuclear attack on a major Western city.

“Despite three previous summits and six years of Obama’s prodding, security officials warn that the ingredients for a nuclear device or a ‘dirty bomb’ are alarmingly insecure,” reports the Denver Post.

Nuclear threats from nations such as North Korea are now being joined by nuclear threats by non-state terrorists groups such as ISIS or al-Qaida offshoots, particularly those operating in North Africa, Yemen and Saudi Arabia.

When they find the radioactive mules for ISIS,
will they let them go (like before)
OR use jets and taxpayer money to take
them by Quartering to every state (like before)?

Americans are fed up, and want to know.

A radioactive border. Darn, how will all those citizens-in-waiting get here? They will have to fly the new voters into the country. :/

Anti-Americans have had ample time to bring anything unchecked across the border. Christians, pray every plan to destroy America is discovered.

Yep ..........just a load of watermelon or cantelope by rail or truck away from a disaster by design that would promote martial law and a “delay” of the election. Obamas 9th year.

Just my opinion of course.

Well, I might get flamed for this, but I think it’s a very good idea.

This isn’t Washington doing this, but rather Austin. And not the local Austin leftists, but the Texan Government, who are not leftists.

The BEST way to defend us all, of course, is to build the wall. This is why we MUST elect Trump.

But right now, even a little thing like this is better than nothing.

Actually, thanks to obozo and scary kerry, Iran now has a clear path to missile mounted nukes. That puts the threat much closer than the border! It may take Iran a while to get there, but as with so much of the crap that goes on within the political classes throughout history, by the time the shit hits the fan, you need a shovel to find someone to bitch out about it. It was John Maynard Keynes who declared "In the end, we'll all be dead." Great philosophy, huh?

Like Obama did not know WMD were scheduled to cross the border with Isis fighters and drug cartels. He wants to hurt us. Be interesting if things go pop before or after he leaves office. But it is all set up by Obama - on purpose. He knows Isis has WMD. He knows they are crossing the border and he knows he is shipping them into place via the refugee program.
