10,000 barrels of yellowcake uranium found in Libya, shocking observers (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Also this news from ABC tonight:
Nightmare in Libya: Thousands of Surface-to-Air Missiles Unaccounted For
"The White House announced today it planned to expand a program to secure and destroy Libya's huge stockpile of dangerous surface-to-air missiles, following an ABC News report that large numbers of them continue to be stolen from unguarded military warehouses." [emphasis mine]

Sigh. The civil war in Libya has spawned a free-for-all plundering of stockpiled military weapons of mass destruction, it seems.

Libya is a Gog Magog nation, a nation that Ezekiel 38:5 prophesies will attack Israel in the last days. This means it is aggressive, and it has the means to join a coalition that includes Turkey which has the second largest army in NATO, and Russia, America's traditional counter-superpower.

While all eyes have been in Iran's nuclear program, Syria's chemical program, and Israel's diplomatic program, 10,000 barrels of uranium yellowcake was discovered in Sahba, Libya- unguarded. Iran is reportedly very interested in what is happening in the area, which was unsecured until two days ago. Many barrels are open. If this material, which is worth a fortune on the black market, fell into the wrong hands it would be devastating.

Yellowcake is used in the preparation of uranium fuel for nuclear reactors, for which it is smelted into purified UO2 for use in fuel rods for pressurized heavy-water reactors and other systems that use natural unenriched uranium. (source)

AL Jazeera English has the story, which opens with a few sentences and continues on video. The prophecy in Revelation 6:4 that peace will be taken from the earth is getting easier and easier to see nearing.

  1. There's no telling what's missing, who has or where they are.

    I read yesterday that 20,000 surface-to-air missiles are missing from Libya.

    Now imagine 100 groups of 3 or 4 with these weapons pointed at the sky, stationed around the United States or Europe on a single day, a certain time...

  2. You're absolutely right, Anonymous. It is not hard to imagine...Joel Rosenberg wrote about a scenario exactly like you described in his opening to the book Dead Heat. Terrorists targeting 4 US cities arrived by container ship or cargo ship, anchored at ports of Baltimore targeting Washington DC, NY, Seattle and LA/Long Beach. The launched a nuke tipped shoulder missile simultaneously, and within seconds, our political, entertainment, financial and technological capitals were devastated. They up anchor and steam out, repainting the ship name as they go. Throughout the book, it was never known who hit us.

    It is frightening to think of the missing missiles and the chemical, nuclear or EMP damage they can be fitted for.

  3. What is also very frightening is how so much of what Joel Rosenberg writes comes true.
