Sunni insurgents take over nuclear materials in northern Iraq

Iraq says “terrorist groups” have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country's north. Iraq's UN envoy has appealed for help to "stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad."

According to Iraq's UN ambassador, Mohamed Ali Alhakim, about 40 kilograms of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University. He added that such materials "can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction."

Well isn't that just AAAF (Allahu Akbar As Fuck).... I've been seeing a reports by the US / Iraqi Ambassador that the concern is minimal. Minimal? Really? Would you let a 5 year old handle this shit? Because, that's about the level of thought process capability carried around by your Jihadi buddies. How's that minimal concern been working out for you lately fellas? If enriched, it could make a dirty bomb and be used to contaminate a water supply. It is a weapon of terror at best, designed to cause widespread panic. The likelihood of this is even limited to their ability for someone to enrich it for them. The last time someone tried to steal radioactive materials, they didn't even know that is was radioactive materials. This was last year, and it was Cobalt-60 in Mexico. ISIS knew exactly what they were stealing. If ISIS played around with this material there is a good chance they would irradiate themselves first since they are not the brightest crayons in the box. Now, with that being said, these cavemen-esque "freedom fighters" could just throw in a little bit of RDX, DBX, TNT, Semtex, or any other kind of boom-boom concoction that can be dreamed up by our wonderful friends at DuPont, and used together to make a very nasty and dirty explosion that would expose people to the Uranium dust particles. This is a possibility since depleted uranium is a by-product from uranium enrichment.  I'm not an expert on this kind of stuff, I'm just thinking on my observations and reflecting on the training I've had in regards to such. This is serious shit.
