    Default The threat of a NUCLEAR terror attack, from ISIS is at its highest since the Cold War

    • Threat of a nuclear attack on Europe at its highest level since Cold War
    • ISIS continues to try to obtain nuclears and threat attack on the West
    • Paris and Brussels terrorists had studied Belgian nuclear power plant



    High risk: The threat of a nuclear bomb attack on Europe is at its highest level since the end of the Cold War

    The threat of a 'dirty bomb' terror attack on a European city is at its highest level since the end of the Cold War, international nuclear experts have warned. ISIS's efforts to obtain nuclear materials, and continued threats to attack Western capitals contribute to experts' analysis that the threat of a bomb is higher than ever. ISIS has used chemical weapons in Iraq and Syria and militants linked to both the Paris and Brussels attacks had been studying a Belgian nuclear power plant.

    'ISIS has already carried out numerous chemical weapons attacks in Syria,' Moshe Kantor, head of Luxembourg Forum on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe, said at a conference on Tuesday. 'We know it wants to go further by carrying out a nuclear attack in the heart of Europe. This, combined with poor levels of security at a host of nuclear research centres in the former Soviet Union mean the threat of a possible 'dirty-bomb' attack on a Western capital is high.'

    He urged the United States and Russia, both nuclear powers, to cooperate on using their technological resources to monitor the illegal transportation of radioactive materials. In March, it emerged that Brussels suicide bomber brothers Khalid and Ibrahim El Bakraoui had originally been considering an attack on a nuclear site in Belgium.

    In what may have been preparation for an attack, the El Bakraoui brothers had filmed the daily routine of the head of Belgium's nuclear research and development programme. It is thought the brothers' spying operation was possible preparation for a kidnap plot to force him to let them into one of Belgium's two atomic facilities. However, it is likely they switched targets to the less well-guarded Zaventem airport and Maelbeek Metro station after authorities became suspicious.

    Also on Tuesday, the Kurdish military warned that ISIS are planning on using using chemical weapons in future suicide bombings. Peshmerga General Akram Mohammed Abdulrahman said that while ISIS has previously used both chemical weapons and suicide bombings separately, they are now looking to combine them. ISIS's tactic involves training brainwashed teenage insurgents to carry out suicide bombings using munitions containing harmful chemicals, he told Russian media.

    There have been previous reports of ISIS militants using mustard gas in their attacks on civilians in Iraq. 'Recently, the militants have been using chemical weapons and suicide bombers, and before it was adults, now - teenagers,' General Akram Mohammed Abdulrahman told Russian news agency RIA Novosti. 'From our intelligence, there is evidence that they are prepared, so to speak, to combine these two tactics and develop a method to supply chemical weapons to suicide bombers to use on the front.

    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Bertrand Russell, “An Inquiry Into Meaning & Truth” (1940)
