Three People Tested For Nuke Poisoning In London

And two new nuclear hot spots detected. Authorities are ugring calm and noting the substance is unlikely to kill, except if ingested.

In a way, this was a small-bore WMD attack on London, launched by Russia.

Why would Russia believe it could get away with such an outrage?

Why, because they have nukes.

Which the even more confrontational and crazy Iran also wants.

Imagine Iran Unbound, now feeling beyond retaliation due to a nuclear force. Is there any doubt they would be doing this sort of thing every day? And giving toxic and radioactive materials to terrorists to use in a more wide-scale fashion?

Scientists discovered more traces of radiation and three people who fell sick were being tested Monday for the deadly radioactive poison that killed former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, prompting the British government to appeal for calm.

In a special address to the House of Commons, Home Secretary John Reid said the tests on the three people were only a precaution and pointed out that the radiation caused by polonium-210, the substance doctors say was used to poison the former KGB agent turned Kremlin critic, did not pose a threat to the general public.

"The nature of this radiation is such that it does not travel over long distances, a few centimeters at most, and therefore there is no need for public alarm," Reid said told lawmakers after opposition calls.

...

Two other sites — an office block in London's West End and an address in the posh neighborhood of Mayfair — also showed traces of radiation, according to residents, although police and health officials would not immediately confirm this.

Thanks to Larwyn.
