What's with this recent? Who are these leaders trying to fool? They're trying to sell these narratives which are out of the world. Such as ISIS acquiring a nuclear bomb and using it. Or so called 'dirty' bomb. We know none of this is possible, nor does ISIS or Al Qaeda care for that. Only superpower nations can create such a 'dirty bomb'. I hate to seem like a tinfoil hat guy, but what is being prepared here?

First of all, there is no such thing as a nuclear dirty bomb. Putting raw material with conventional explosive simply will only cause damage that conventional explosive has with some side effects in immediate area of explosion. There is no such thing as a dirty bomb that could cause massive nuclear explosion and claim hundreds of thousands of lives. Only superpowers are capable of creating such bombs.

Secondly, you can't get your 'hands on hold' of a nuclear weapon. Nuclear weapons aren't sitting around in the black market. In today's world, nuclear weapons are made up warheads. They are warheads which are placed on a variety of missiles, mostly ICBM's which are hidden in secret locations that require multiple key entries to activate. The ones no on earth, are in space. They can be fired from the atmosphere towards land. These are again, only in hold of superpowers. Even if you somehow find a nuclear bomb laying around(which simply not possible), there still has to be means of delivery. Which ISIS or AQ don't have. They are ragtag militias.

....
....

So what's the deal here? This warning does seem odd, since we know no such thing is possible. But, these world leaders want to make it appear as if it is an acceptable narrative. So either they're preparing something(like a false flag) for us, or this is US effort to prevent some European and Asian nations from developing nuclear weapons so they can instead ask US for military support, and US can therefore deploy military assets there, gaining big influence around the world. This is likely the case here.

What do you guys say?

They are concerned about terrorists getting their hands on the nuclear materials to build a bomb (which is said but I doubt is easy to do) from corrupt countries. It is said that if you have a few guys who are knowledgeable about nuclear physics you could possibly build a crude nuclear bomb. But it looked extremely complex and rather expensive for an illegitimate group so probably very unlikely. But I believe that there were signs of chemical attacks by ISIS in the Middle East so they might possibly already be in possession of chemical weapons. Also I think many nations that have the ability to build nuclear weapons are not worried about building them( at least in Europe). We already have a large influence around the world.

Nuclear weapons in hands of terrorists! Who on earth is going to supply terrorists with nuclear weapons? %-(
Not nuclear weapons but radioactive material used to construct a nuclear device.

Saudi Arabia donates $10m to combat nuclear terrorism

Manama: Saudi Arabia has donated $10 million (Dh36.73 million) for the establishment of a specialised centre to combat nuclear terrorism, at the headquarters of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), in the Austrian capital Vienna, a Saudi official said.

Dr Hashim Bin Abdullah Yamani, President of King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy, and the head of the Saudi Delegation to the Nuclear Security Summit said before the Fourth Nuclear Security Summit that the Kingdom also donated 500,000 euro (Dh2.09 million) for the modernisation project of the IAEA laboratories, in Seibersdorf, in the outskirts of Vienna.

He added that Saudi Arabia was among the first countries that supported international resolutions related to nuclear security and paid special attention to the issue of infrastructure development for nuclear security, Kuwait News Agency (Kuna) reported on Saturday.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was one of the first countries that supported international resolutions related to nuclear security and the Kingdom has ratified the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material and it supported as well the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism as a party of the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism,” he said.

Dr Yamani said Saudi Arabia had been effectively and positively represented in most international forums and activities related to nuclear security, since the first summit in Washington in 2010, adding that the Kingdom gave special attention to the issue of the infrastructure of nuclear security development through the integration of nuclear safety and nuclear security.

The Kingdom is continuing to activate the strategic partnership agreement between King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy and the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, in Finland, as a strategic partner to provide technical support, necessary knowledge and experience for organising the Saudi atomic energy sector and providing it with necessary training of human resources, in order to establish an independent national authority for nuclear regulation, he added.

He said that the Kingdom, in the international context, has provided and will continue to provide full support to all international activities, in the field of nuclear security, pointing out that the Kingdom in 2014 announced a donation of $100 million for the establishment of the United Nations counter-terrorism centre.

Dr Yamani emphasised the great attention given by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the pivotal role of IAEA in the field of nuclear security.

@Falcon29 just like what @Bryce Hontz said. Terrorist organizations not only ISIS but many like for example Taliban...etc may get their hands on radioactive materials to construct their own WMD weapons. These people are very very dangerous. There is no value of life among these people. They will easily kill you and kill themselves at the same time.

Does not matter material you have, this does not convert to a nuclear weapon. Nor do a few physicisists. Crude material remains crude material. Little poor militant groups can't do anything with them. Nor do they seek to do so.

You need nuclear reactors and it's a long process. ISIS doesn't have such nuclear reactors nor people who can operate them nor could they hide them. Then you need delivery system, which requires billions in research and you need a functioning and wealthy nation to fund that.

Im just assuming that's that way its although I highly doubt such scenario could happen. Its very hard to get one's hand on nukes thus its unlikely to happen.

Like I said. It is very unlikely. They would just need to build a device that could "harness the power of the nuclear materials". It would not be on a missile. It would be the size of a small car. They would need help from some crooked countries and would need to keep things tight and would not be able to move their device easily. And if word got out they would have a run in with some Delta boys.

With all due respect, no such thing could be created. Here is small generic overview of how nuclear weapons are created:

There are some reports that NK might supply nuke missiles to terrorist organizations. Also enriched uranium and plutonium materials have gone missing in some countries like Libya for example.

That's nonsense, and I explained the deal with crude materials. The responsibility should be on journalists to expose how bizarre these notions are, but modern journalists play along with this game. They only represent government interests. We don't live in a free or good world, hopefully that will change in my lifetime.

In the 90s after the collapse of the Soviet Union,it was easier to get some radioactive material like plutonium,enriched uraniam or similar materials to be used for ''dirty'' bombs.
Nothing happened then,nothing will happen in the future.

It's IMPOSSIBLE for a militia to build a nuclear weapon for many reasons. They don't have the scientists and the infrastructure needed for the process !

Let's assume that they have succeeded in getting the Nukes, either by stealing it or they got it as a gift from a nuclear country :D, they still lacks a very important thing which's the mean necessary to deliver the Nukes to a certain target.

Like what @T-123456 said, it's impossible now even for the capable countries to have Nukes. But the greatest concern is that the ability of developing a dirty weapons through using the radioactive materials or even a radioactive wastes and integrate them with the conversational weapons !

In the worst cases, expect a uranium bullets ~^~ , as far as I know, it's made of radioactive nuclear-waste materials.

They are worried about the construction of a nuclear device not them obtaining a bomb.
