WHILE EVERYONE IS WORRIED ABOUT IRAN…MEANWHILE, IN SOUTH ...

Now, before we get started, right up front, I want you to read this, even though it's a couple of years old:

Nuclear Proliferation in Latin America Is Brazil Developing the Bomb?

Yes, you read that correctly, the CFR's Foreign Policy is spotlighting the next candidates for the bomb after Iran as being Kazakhstan, Bangladesh, Burma, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. Ok, fine, but as Der Spiegel also notes, Brazil, whose economy dwarfs that of neighbor Venezuela, has long mastered the entire nuclear fuel process and is in the process of building nuclear submarines. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not worried about Brazil reigning down nuclear destruction on our or anyone else's heads.

But let's look closer at this story. As the Der Spiegel article notes,

"It sounds harmless enough, but it isn't, because the term "nuclear-powered submarines" could in fact be a cover for a nuclear weapons program. Brazil already had three secret military nuclear programs between 1975 and 1990, with each branch of its armed forces pursuing its own route. The navy's approach proved to be the most successful: using imported high-performance centrifuges to produce highly enriched uranium from imported uranium hexafluoride, so as to be able to operate small reactors for submarines."

So where did Brazil acquire these "imported high-performance centrifuges"? Answer: West Germany:

Nuclear Weapons Programs

Now, while neither Brazil nor West Germany are known for being led by nutjobs (...er...well...), at least not the apocalyptic nutjobs in Tehran, or the People's Paradise nutjobs in North Korea, I hope you have been paying attention to my posts about nuclear weapons, and Germany, for while the west is busily pointing the finger at China and North Korea for nuclear proliferation, we might look a little closer to cultural home.

As I've noted in interviews and elsewhere on this blog site, West Germany, according to the 1978 New York Times book The Nuclear Axis, was the deep hidden player in South Africa's and Israel's acquisition of the bomb, and as I've also noted, Germany builds France's submarine launched ICBM and its thermonuclear warheads in one of those nifty Franco-German consortia that the Europeans like to do (think Airbus here). And now, Brazil's centrifuges.

We are looking, in short, at more evidence of a de facto nuclear power in the heart of Europe, and one which, moreover, has been in the quiet forefront of nuclear proliferation.

See you on the flip side....

  1. My post disappeared!

    it’s ironic for it was one of the times I am serious?

    Nutjobs you say? If people only knew?

    Who’s your ‘HANDLER” jOE?

    1. Here we go again — the post that disappeared appears again.

      Let see what happens this time?

      How’s this for size? (unnamed source)

      @@@@@@@@@ Wait a minute — I decided against a reappearance?

      In the following paragraph (unnamed source) it speaks of voices coming from on high. Well, voices come from on low too as I have been reading your articles lately?

      ” As things stand at the moment, the politicians’ calls for more
      trust sound as suspicious and treacherous as sirens’ songs. Why
      should we trust the sirens? Wouldn’t it be more reasonable, and
      ultimately more honest, to follow Odysseus’s example ( more and
      more people do already, plugging their ears against the voices
      coming from on high )? Or better still, considering that sirens can
      no more alter their tunes than leopards can change their spots, try
      in earnest to redesign the public stage so that it stays off-limits to
      sirens?

  2. Anyone hungry? While waiting for the “Hail of Nuclear Wrath” to fall, I Am thinking JF has plenty of “Nazi Samiches” in his fridge he would likely be willing to “share.” Limit, two per Believer. … (is that Thunder?)

    Good point!
    Also BRICS are going against the “West’ privat few financial oligarchy in an emerging ‘public’ banking cartel.

    P.S.
    Just finished with a Jim Fetzer’s interveiw, Monday March 26, 2012 with Jay Weidner.
    Approx 1:26:04 in, Jay begins talking about two NASA Space programs, one for us & one that is secret and funded by black ops.

  4. Back up the use of the word “apocalptic” in the following quotation from the above: “the apocalyptic nutjobs in Tehran”.

    Sure seems to me that various “christians” is the USA are much much more driven by apocalptic dreams and hopes than the jerks in power in Iran.

    Way Foxnewsify there.

  5. While Germany secretly builds up a secret nuclear aliance around the U.S. ours are dismantled? Bush and other elites all building homes away from home in Paraguay? Most of these families with possible Nazi ties in the past? This is deffinately an article that makes one say, “Hummmm!”

  6. you are wrong, this is a not true, we are not “using imported high-performance centrifuges”, we did develop ours, based in others..by the way, foreign countries are interestes in ours.. sorry my english, but that is the true.

      1. However, all West European countries set up plans for nuclear programs for the last century. The idea behind this plans was developing the technology needed to build a litle arsenal in the least time possible. Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany and other countries ‘flirted’ with this chance. I don’t question where the technology came from, but I imagine that the GDR government had tied its hands. So if this transfer of techology came from this country, I can’t only think of some of its large corporations like Siemens.

        One thing it’s true, you can never be sure who is behind one multinational firm. It’s even posible to take control of a holding obtaining a significant portion of the outstanding shares of the firm that is owning the needed capital in the others corporations to make up the holding. There isn’t necessary to turn to merger or purchases to take control or influence in a firm. It wouldn’t even be needed to have the absolute majority if the number of shares outstanding are very dispersed.

        Excuse me if I’ve made some spelling mistake. My mother tongue language is European Spanish.

        I’ve had the chance to read some of your book and they have some very interisting point of views about all for a novice in Physics like me. So I encourage you to go on investigating. I don’t know if I’ll be able to contribute too much because my background are business and computer sciences, but I’ll often try to follow this website.

  7. All this brew ha ha with Iranian and North Korean nukes meanwhile good old Germany selling nuke technology all over the world. And no cpmplaints from the Republiciannuts about this situation no sweat off there backs about this you figure this out.

  8. Ah yes…Team America …Ridding the world of “nutjobs.” “They are terrorists, and they are nutjobs!” Brought to you by Fox News. Why did we drop atom bombs on two Japanese cities? All those civilians must have been nutjobs! Please overlook that fact that America is the only country ever to so completely lack any kind of moral character whatsoever, that they would acquire such weapons, and without even so much as a second thought, or any kind of public debate, immediately use them to roast a bunch of innocent civilians in a massive fire bomb. Please overlook the fact that absolutely no other country of so called “nutjobs” has ever done this. And probably because they have enough of a conscience to realize that such an act, is an act of a total moral degenerate. Please overlook the nutjob nuclear state called Israel, whose Zionist nutjobs terrorize the Palestinians, and refuse to let Jews and Palestinians make peace, even when it’s what their own people want. Their racist soldiers beat their own people anytime they see them engaged in peaceful relations with the Palestinians. Please ignore AIPAC as they literally buy politicians, and use America as their private army of thugs, to go around and brutalize the world. Please ignore the nutjobs like Joe Lieberman, as he turns America into a police state. “Strip search that man…He’s a nutjob!!!” “And where there is a nutjob, there is also a Nazi.” That’s right South America. You better look out, because if they see any German looking houses down there, you’re gonna get it! They read Dr. Farrell’s books, and they suspect Nazis. You Brazilians with your energy independence and your Ethanol might look like Nazis to them, and Brazil is one of the places where Hitler might have gone. The brotherhood of evil doesn’t tolerate energy independence, so look out, because when Team America gets done with the nutjobs in Iran, you are probably the next nutjobs to get your country bombed into the ground. “NaziNutjobsWithNukes? “ “No Way!” There is only one thing worse than that. “NaziNephilimNutjobsWithNukes!!!”
