Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh) could acquire a nuclear weapon within a year if need be, the terrorist group’s magazine boasts in an article attributed to British hostage journalist John Cantlie, RT reported.
John Cantlie, who was kidnapped by ISIS thugs in November 2012, is regularly used in the terror group’s propaganda and has appeared in a number of videos.
The article talks about a “hypothetical operation” in which the death cult uses its “billions of dollars” to buy a nuclear device in Pakistan “through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials in the region”.
The weapon could then be transported through Libya and Nigeria.
The article suggests that “drug shipments from Columbia bound for Europe pass through West Africa, so moving other types of contraband from East to West is just as possible.”
The device would land on the south shores of South America and make its way to Mexico, from where “it’s just a quick hop through a smuggling tunnel” to the US.
The author admits that obtaining the nuclear weapon may not be that simple, asking how about a few thousand tons of ammonium nitrate explosive, which is pretty easy to make.
