Why Is Southern California Suddenly Preparing For A Nuclear Attack? (VIDEOS)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A $11.4 million federal grant will be used to set up a system to detect nuclear and radiological threats around the greater Los Angeles region, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced today.

The Department of Homeland Security’s “Securing the Cities” grant will fund the purchase of nuclear and radiological detection equipment and set-up of an analysis lab and command center based out of the Los Angeles Emergency Center, Garcetti said.

The goal is to set up a nuclear detection “ring” or “halo” around the Los Angeles region to monitor potential threats and develop a response protocol.

“By creating a detection halo around our region, we’ll get an early warning of threats which will accelerate response times and could help stop an attack before it begins,” Garcetti said.

Agencies collaborating on the detection system include Garcetti’s office; the Los Angeles Fire and Police departments, as well as the Airport and Harbor police; the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s, Fire and Public Health departments; Long Beach police; Orange County Sheriff’s Department; and California Highway Patrol.

The grant was awarded to the Los Angeles/Long Beach Urban Areas Security Initiative Approval Authority, which includes top officials from most of the agencies working on the effort.

“The Securing the Cities program will allow us to better support and unite efforts already underway, increasing cooperation and coordination across federal, state, and local agencies,” said Dr. Huban Gowadia, director of the Homeland Security Department’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office.

The Los Angeles area has the opportunity to obtain as much as $30 million in federal funding for detection efforts over the next half decade. source – NBC LA

      Wednesday, July 28, 2010…There was over 1,000 participants in 15 emergency operation centers…The drill employed some expensive gadgetry that crews were in no hurry to use at that time ( July 28,2010 )… What they had was a simulated nuclear explosion at the Universal City Metrolink Station… The hypothetical 10-kiloton nuclear blast would have killed thousands… But the goal of Operation Golden Phoenix was learning how to save countless lives from a potentially-deadly plume of radioactivity… It boils down to an impossibly long government acronym… The Integrated Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive program… So why is Southern California suddenly preparing for a Nuclear Attack… AGAIN… :?:

      FUKU… ?…

          Any website saying that there is one person who is THE ANTICHRIST is dead wrong! There are “many” who are “…of the spirit of antichrist…”, that is they are against the doctrine of Christ. How do you know them? You should know them by their “works”. Do they preach and teach the doctrine of Christ in their halls of government and in their public schools? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

      Wow and the Gov keeos printing money for all these expenses, and they cook the books to give our Senior Citizens a lousy 1.5% cost of living increases.

    • MLK321

      Setting out detectors is not for detecting bombs. The big flash can do that. It’s for dirty bombs.

    • MLK321

      In life or death professions, you practice with the ammo you are going to use. This target practice argument is bogus. This still doesn’t answer the question why they need so much ammo.

        I would suspect it is because they are such lousy shots.

      - To answer in one word: Fukushima.
      The preparation is for the detection of deadly tritium which has already been brought here by atmospheric means, and cesium which will take longer to arrive. The idea of China somehow bombing land that they own (the claim is virtually all of the western United States) and plan to inhabit is absurd. The more imminent and much more serious danger is fallout from Fukushima, by far. One atom of cesium137 is deadly if ingested or absorbed. No major media coverage, hmmm.

      • Fr.Duffy Fighting 69th

        No MSM coverage or Governmental statements relating to Fukashima. It really brings into question what caused the 3-11 “quake” and tsunami. Underwater nuclear device? Planned disaster at Fukashima?

      This FUKU disinfo is annoying. Lets cut to the chase, shall we. A “hot war” is coming! Asymmetric warfare is ongoing using a wide variety of weapons technologies, one being the ability to “control the weather”. The tensions between the Western nations and the Eastern nations are at the boiling point. The West is using the “disaster” in the Philippines as cover to take over that area of the world under the guise of a “humanitarian mission”. Western news reports even declare its a “Pivot to Asia”! The Eastern nations, Russia, China, India, are NOT going to sit by as the West moves in to attempt to take over the resources located under the South China Sea. If any of you reading this doubt it just take a look at what is really going on while people are being distracted with disinfo!

        Did any of you know that prior to WW2 Nazzi Germany was Britain’s biggest trading partner? Strange coincidence that China is the biggest trading partner with the US, isn’t it? History repeats itself. Its the serpent biting its tail!

      I urge everyone to get behind Dr Ben Carson to run for president ,it dose not matter if he has little experience ,he would surround himself with the right people,what makes him an ideal candidate is that he is honest,he would unwind everything that obama has done,he would represent you with honesty and integrity he would change the country to a country that we could all be proud of and that the world would admirer and respect,he would not be corupted .

        Voting in elections will never solve anything and is one of the most violent acts a person can commit in their life.

        • CrowPie

          I’m not voting for a Doctor for President so he can make health care better for the doctors. It would be like voting for an Oil Baron so that oil prices can go through the roof and wars with oil rich countries can be raged.

          Give me a single working mother……I’ll vote for her. She can do healthcare AND balance a budget.

        No more negro presidents. We don’t need Negroes. One is enuf. He ran for two frigg’n terms already and already rated the WORST president and the most damaging and traitorous one.

        Leave it to Negroes when you want someplace WRECKED!

          It has nothing to do with whether or not he is a “negro”, you imbecile! Bush, Clinton, Bush Sr… The list goes on. They’re all the same. Puppets with tangled strings. For some reason we keep on voting them in, so I guess, in the end, we’re the effing idiots!

      They are not preparing for a nuclear war but for the earth changes, disasters, and pole shift Planet x (Nibiru) will cause. MANY are preparing, it is obvious. But YOU are not supposed to even know Planet X arrived in the inner solar system in 2003 and has been approaching ever since. THAT is why there are so many cover stories out there for the real preparations for the pole shift. I know the truth about Planet X from

        They are not preparing for war? Excuse me, but they’ve been conducting asymmetric warfare using High Tech weapons ever since the invasion of the ME! This nation is in a “state of perpetual war”, which was declared right after the High Tech strike on the towers in NYC! You stupid, ignorant, or what?

      If fuel pool 4 has an accident in spent fuel removal they will need to be prepared , all reasons given for this drill are total bs. As it is we are being slowly radiated daily thanks Japan.

      Just read a very interesting article concerning how high tech asymmetric warfare tactics can be defeated by low tech warfare tactics, which has always been a problem for the most powerful military force on the planet, which has become increasingly reliant upon high tech weapons and forces to overwhelm and destroy nations that oppose its operations. What would be the one way to solve the problem of identifying human friends from human foe, or for that matter, non-human friends from non-human foe? Suppose there was a way to electronically “mark” a human or non-human? Hypothetically, suppose a superior military force were able to us high tech weapons in asymmetric warfare in order to induce “shock” in a population so that the people would readily accept any form of “humanitarian” assistance. Suppose, that as a part of that assistance they would have to receive some type of electronic ID that would be used to “authorize” them to “buy or sell” once the old infrastructure was replaced by the new “electronic” infrastructure. Purely hypothetical, of course.

        US criticizes new China zone, vows to defend Japan

        “China and Taiwan both claim the islands, which fall near potentially energy-rich waters.”

        The South China Sea!

        • Anonymous


          “BEIJING (AP) — The Chinese Defense Ministry on Saturday issued a map of an East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone that includes a chain of disputed islands also claimed by Japan, triggering a protest from Tokyo. The United States also expressed concern about China’s “unilateral action.”

          “By establishing the air-defense zone Beijing has … potentially escalated the danger of accidental collisions between the Chinese military and the U.S. and Japanese counterparts,” said Tomohiko Taniguchi, a counselor in the office of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “It poses a serious challenge against freedom of movement in the sky and in the seas.”

      One could only hope that it is because someone has taken pity on America and is going to take out the liberals conclave. You go Santa.

      tinfoil hat musings aside… the threat of some “one” doing some “thing” to the undisputed cesspool of western culture is undeniable. the point is NONE of us (white, black or gray hats) have ANY F***in’ clue as to what the the ESTABLISHmint have in plan of US.
      the only thing WE can do is to keep eyes open, ears to the ground and plan a survival strategy.

      Why? because it’s a cash cow for police unions. They’d fleece the public in preparations for a bigfoot attack if they could get away with it.

      A loud car crash and someone phoning in they saw a man with a gun caused a panic and evacuation of two terminals at LAX friday. Police responded with an overwhelming use of force to the possible threat of one person with a gun possibly being in one of the terminals. At least two thousand people ran out of two different terminals! A thousand people fleeing from threat of one person in each instance! Police, armed with automatic weapons ran through the terminals shouting at people to “Get down, get down on the floor”. No gunman was found. A car crashed into the side of a building which people thought sounded like gunfire.

      The Nuclear threat is already there and coming by sea and Air from Fukushima.
      Thanks to those responsible of detonating a Nuclear bomb on the Fault Line.

        Asymmetric warfare using High Tech weapons can cause lots of things to happen that look “natural”, like an earthquake that causes a tsunami, or enhance a typhoon so that it becomes a super typhoon, both of which are plausibly deniable. Directed Energy Weapons can “cause” lots of things to happen. Oh, but that’s just a “conspiracy” right?

      Reports now coming in on that oil pipeline explosion in China have revised the number of people killed to 55, up from 22. China has setup a “no fly zone” of its own over disputed territory in the South China Sea. US and Japan ain’t happy ’bout that. China’s military is warning any aircraft not supposed to be in that area will be “intercepted”. Doesn’t have anything to do with THIS **** “China’s planned crude oil futures may be priced in yuan – SHFE”-**** OR THIS ****Japan’s Abe Seeks Friends in Asia—but Not China-—-NOW, DOES IT!
