    Certainly be interesting to see what the chain of custody looks like on all this dangerous radioactive waste.

    Well I don't think the Cartels would conduct business with any from the ME.....but now others from elsewhere. That could be a concern.

    A story on MSNBC said they had found the truck with the container opened and are expecting the thieves to be burned or dead.

    I would be surprised if the thieves knew what was in the truck, but the report said the truck was stolen in a small town. My question is what in the hell was a truck like that doing in a small town?

    That is where the worst of the worst are.

    He should have stayed on the main highway with a lot of witnesses.

    A friend and I went to a little town close to Culiacan, yes where the Sinaloa Cartel is, and we were told to roll the windows down on the car because if you don't, they will shoot up the car because they don't know who you are.

    Small towns here, and I mean the places that have a few thousand people, can be very dangerous places.

    I don't think that this was just a case of two guys who didn't know what they were stealing. According to CNN:

    "At around 1 a.m. Monday, a man armed with a handgun knocked on the passenger window. When the passenger rolled down his window, the gunman demanded the keys to the vehicle, Morales said. Both the driver and his assistant were taken to an empty lot where they were bound and told not to move. They heard one of the assailants use a walkie-talkie type device or phone to tell someone, "It's done," Morales said."

    That tells me that this specific truck was targeted for a reason...the cargo being the obvious one. Someone wanted that cargo.

    The "It's done" maybe that they were targeting this truck, but the rest happens every day. The driver was lucky he wasn't killed.

    I doubt Al-Qaeda is involved, but you can never be too sure. If they really wanted radioactive materials from Medical equipment there are more sophisticated ways to get it. Then again who knows anymore. Our borders are completely open.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    My immediate thought was that one of the Mexican drug lords would be interested in acquiring it as opposed to al qaeda.
