Iran will soon possess nuclear weapons. Considering that an estimated 12 million illegal aliens are within our borders and that narcotics are brought in by the tons, nuclear weapons can also be smuggled in.
But sometimes the event that has not occurred is most telling. Each day brings more reports of suicide bombings in the Middle East; however, no Islamic religious or political leaders have martyred themselves. They are not in a great rush to meet Allah. Thus they face this dilemma: Should Iran use their nuclear arsenal, they will be annihilated by our multiple hydrogen-bomb armed ICBMs.
Tragically, there is a solution to their dilemma: Used as energy sources, rather than weapons, nuclear devices can create man-made acts of God.
The public misunderstands nuclear weapons. Conventional explosives, such as gunpowder and dynamite, produce high temperature and pressure gases upon detonation. The nuclear reaction does not. It is the conversion of matter into energy. By converting about 1/4 of an ounce of plutonium 239 into energy, the Nagasaki bomb produced a yield equal to 40 million pounds of TNT.
Used as energy sources, nuclear devices can create five different events that we may mistakenly deem to have been “acts of God”. The United States could suffer unparalleled carnage without our realizing that we are under attack. The details are provided in the following revised Epilogue to The Unsung Patriots.
Unfortunately, a quirk of human nature favors the adversaries. We humans do not take threats seriously until after they have occurred. There is a regrettably true adage: The generals always prepared to fight the last war. Our current adversaries are very intelligent and will surely strike in new ways for which they believe we have not prepared.
It is my objective that simulations be conducted to either verify or disprove the threats delineated in the Epilogue. If the threats are validated, our adversaries must be dissuaded in advance.
