    The Army Is Stocking Up On A Ton Of Anti-Radiation Pills To Protect Troops

    Eloise Lee and Robert Johnson

    Apr. 10, 2012

    While checking out the Federal Business Opportunities network, we came across a listing by the Defense Logistics Agency — the Troop Support branch — seeking a supply of potassium iodide tablets.

    Scrolling through the online solicitation, you'll see the U.S. Army Medical Material Agency wants to ensure "critical operational forces are protected in the event of nuclear fallout."

    The FDA recommends taking potassium iodide in radiation emergencies to block cancer-causing radioiodines that would otherwise be absorbed by the body's thyroid — the gland in your neck that regulates adrenaline and metabolism, along with doing a bunch of other stuff we need to survive.

    The U.S. has bought potassium iodide tablets in the past, and is now looking ahead to scenarios, possibly spurred by last year's Fukushima crisis.

    As the federal solicitation is quick to point out, "The recent earthquake in Japan in March of 2011 and the resultant nuclear crisis has renewed interest in this item."

    Of course, potassium iodide would also come in handy if there were to be an airstrike against a target laden will nuclear material, say, like the sites in Iran. One of the big concerns surrounding the practical devastation of those nuclear facilities is the radiation it will unleash into the surroundings.

    Destroying one of the most likely Iranian targets, the 1000-megawatt Bushehr nuclear plant, would create just such a concern.

    The 1,000-megawatt reactor is what was in place at Chernobyl at the time of its meltdown, and though there were four in the Ukraine, the radiation exposure from blowing up even a single reactor would be immense.

    But how immense, no one is really quite sure.

    When Israel destroyed Iraq's Osiris 70-megawatt nuclear reactor in a bold 1981 attack, the plant hadn't yet been stocked with nuclear fuel so there was no risk of radiation.

    But an attack on Iran's Bushehr plant, which has been stocked with radioactive fuel rods since 2010, would be an incalculable mess.

    While the potassium iodide tablets wanted by the Army don't necessarily mean a thing, they'll sure be nice to have if an attack against Iran eventually goes down.

    And until that actually happens, the only clue we'll have about what the Pentagon may be planning is in small inconclusive supply requests like this.

    Potassium Iodide Protects Troops From Nuclear Fallout - Business Insider


    Black Blade: What do they know that we don"t? Maybe that Pakistan is an Islamic state with nukes and may be on the verge of collapse? Iran's nuclear weapons program is more advanced than thought and Israel appears ready to take action with the United States standing by? Maybe North Korea is planning something more nefarious than just posturing with missiles and nukes as we have a few tens of thousands of American military personnel in South Korea and Japan? Maybe Fukushima is worse than expected or is deteriorating fast? Any number of scenarios here. BTW, I do have potassium Iodide in my kits.

    The US Military is Stocking Up On a Massive Amount of Anti-Radiation Pills In Preparation for Nuclear Fallout

    The Intel Hub
    April 11, 2012

    The US Military is currently seeking a large amount of potassium iodide, this according to a listing on the FBO.gov website by the Defense Logistics Agency.

    In the listing it is made clear that they want to be ready in the event of nuclear fallout which has lead many to speculate that this could be in response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster or perhaps in anticipation for an attack on an active Iranian nuclear facility.

    The DLA is apparently looking for upwards of 400,000 dollars worth of the thyroid protecting tablets at a time when many government officials have openly told American citizens NOT to buy potassium iodide.

    In an article published by Business Insider on March 10th, some of the possibilities as to why this order has been put in were explored.

    The U.S. has bought potassium iodide tablets in the past, and is now looking ahead to scenarios, possibly spurred by last year’s Fukushima crisis.

    As the federal solicitation is quick to point out, “The recent earthquake in Japan in March of 2011 and the resultant nuclear crisis has renewed interest in this item.”

    Of course, potassium iodide would also come in handy if there were to be an airstrike against a target laden will nuclear material, say, like the sites in Iran. One of the big concerns surrounding the practical devastation of those nuclear facilities is the radiation it will unleash into the surroundings.

    Destroying one of the most likely Iranian targets, the 1000-megawatt Bushehr nuclear plant, would create just such a concern.

    The request comes at a time when radiation is being found in Kelp off the coast of California, polar bears are coming down with a mysterious sickness in Alaska, and a radiation wave is headed our way.

    This on top of a stark warning by a former UN adviser that the world could literally be destroyed by Fukushima.

    When you throw in the possibility of an Israeli and or US strike on an active Iranian nuclear power plant you can clearly see the nuclear nightmare the world now finds itself in.

    The idea that the Israeli or US government would literally purposefully blow up a nuclear plant the size of Chernobyl is absolutely insane and shows the level that the globalists are willing to go to reach their goals.

    Black Blade: Does serve as a reminder to stay stocked up and prep for the possibility of rediation.
