More on the Yellowcake Out of Iraq
And why was it unused? Because the Israelis, bless 'em, had the foresight and moxie to bomb the reactor before it was up and running.
Well if there were 550 metric tons of it in Iraq since 1982, why would Iraq have needed to purchase more from Niger? Because Saddam wanted yellowcake that was not discovered and catalogued with which to be able to ramp up his nuclear program clandestinely.
I'll let the next question be asked by others.
Here is a question. What do you do with Yellowcake when you have no means to refine it?
Relatively innocuous stuff. I saw a guy handling it with gardening gloves on.
Make him a bomb,
As fast as you can,
Refine it and pack it
And mark it with an S,
Then plant in Tehran,
To blow up Mullahs,
anon, France sold them the reactor and I believe the fuel.
Papa, good poem. Well done all of you.
