You know this headline would stimulate my curiosity instantly.
The street-gang Brazilian style [3G2] gone nuclear? GWOT? WMD?
Thanks to the story from the Russian controlled [?] media Russian Times:
"Armed gang raids convoy carrying uranium fuel to Brazil nuclear plant"
"A truck carrying nuclear fuel to one of Brazil's power plants has come under attack by a group of armed men who engaged in a shootout with police officers guarding the convoy."
"The uranium shipment came under attack on Tuesday in the town of Frade, about 30 km (19 miles) from Angra dos Reis, where the Angra 2 nuclear power plant is located. Following an intense fire exchange with the gunmen, the officers, none of whom were injured, managed to thwart the assault, police said."
Read previous entries here and here, the street-gang as a threat to the internal security of many nations and also the street-gang as having an international dimension in addition.
STREET-GANGS THEIR MOTIVATION AS THEY EVOLVE NOT STRICTLY MONETARY. THE DESIRE FOR POLITICAL CONTROL AT SOME POINT BECOMES A MAJOR CONSIDERATION!
Nuclear fuel [not weapons grade uranium] either for: 1. Sale on the international black market. 2. A means to intimidate the Brazilian government. Construct the dirty bomb [radiological device] and threaten detonation of same. INTIMIDATION!
Attack this time unsuccessful and thank GOD for it. Next time? Beware!
