Al-Qaeda Seeking Nukes

In case you are wondering if the terrorists would use nukes if they had them.

IHT:CAIRO, Egypt An al-Qaida member who escaped from a U.S. prison in Afghanistan urged his followers in a new video aired Tuesday to acquire nuclear technology.

Abu Yahia al-Libi, who broke out of prison in July 2005, appeared in a video broadcast by the pan-Arab Al-Arabiya TV, telling his followers "to get prepared by starting with exercise ... then learn technology until you are capable of nuclear weapons," he said.

In the video, al-Libi, who appears to be talking to a group of fighters has a beard and is wearing a long gray robe. The video was the third reportedly featuring al-Libi since he escaped from prison.

Al-Arabiya showed two minutes of what it said was an hour-long video exclusively obtained by the satellite channel. It also showed footage of what appeared to be a group of Arab fighters training.
The answer is yes. One of the things about being a nuclear power is the realization that it carries a tremendous responsibility. The actual use is so horrible that the affect is mainly as a deterrent.

The Islamic terrorists have no such concerns about the effects or deterrent use. They would use a nuclear device on the west in a heartbeat.

It sounds like this may be the same or similar to the Video that the Site Institute has here.
