India Builds Cobalt Bomb, a “Planet Killer”


Editor’s note:  In 2015, India began a secret project (sources) to build “salted” nuclear weapons along with not-so-conventional thermonuclear (hydrogen) bombs at a new facility in Karnataka.  From Foreign Policy:

“India’s ambition in building its Karnataka facility, according to retired Indian government officials and independent experts in London and Washington, is to give India an extra stockpile of enriched uranium fuel that could be used in “new hydrogen bombs,” also known as thermonuclear weapons, substantially increasing the explosive force of those in its existing nuclear arsenal.”

Our sources, who know the same retired officials, say India, with help from Israeli scientists who had previously run the Soviet Union’s nuclear weapons program, are building several cobalt bombs to “sterilize” Pakistan of all human life for a century.

The US also believes Russia has chosen this same path, based on the rationale Kubric expounded in Strangelove.  For India, blind insanity has been driving India for some time, with Russian need for weapons exports, leasing nuclear submarines and other destabilizing platforms.

We warned long ago that this would happen when we discovered, something as part of a secret briefing with the Pakistan intelligence chief General Pasha, that Israel and India were building ICBMs capable of hitting North America, in fact ONLY capable of hitting North America.

Currently, the US believes Russia is also building cobalt bombs for its nuclear powered cruise missile and undersea drone “doomsday weapons.”

Russia Today: Amid rising tensions, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi says he has called Pakistan’s nuclear bluff by launching airstrikes while also claiming that New Delhi has the “mother of nuclear bombs.”

“Earlier, terrorists from Pakistan would come here and go back after conducting an attack. Pakistan would threaten us, saying it has the nuclear bomb and will press the button,” Prime Minister Modi said at a campaign rally at Surendranagar in Gujarat on Wednesday.

In the past, our people would weep, go around the world saying Pakistan did this, did that… It is now Pakistan’s turn to weep.

We have the mother of nuclear bombs. I decided to tell them, do whatever you want to do.

From Business Insider:

“When a thermonuclear weapon is surrounded with with ordinary cobalt (cobalt-59) metal,” as Russia’s Status 6 is rumored to be, “the fast neutrons escaping the explosion will instantly transmute it into radioactive cobalt-60, which would vaporize, condense, and then fall back to earth tens, hundreds, or thousands of miles from the site of the explosion.”

How the doomsday bomb could make thousands of square miles uninhabitable for the better part of a century

The result would be a shroud of radioactive cobalt spreading indiscriminately across the planet. A cobalt bomb detonated in Washington DC could contaminate Canadian or Mexican soil. Schwartz estimates the cobalt would take 53 years to return to non-dangerous levels, and that other radioactive elements could persist for much longer.

“Any contaminated areas would be rendered essentially uninhabitable for that amount of time and people in shelters would not be safe if they returned to the surface for any period of time,” Schwartz said. “If detonated in a populated area, decontamination costs would be astronomical.”

The bombastic rhetoric comes amid ongoing tensions and tit-for-tat airstrikes in recent weeks, which have been marred by sporadic cross-border firefights and violence in the aftermath of a suicide bomb attack in Pulwama in February which killed 40 Indian paramilitary officers.

Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the bombing and India subsequently accused the Pakistani government of turning a blind eye to the group’s activities.

“Pakistan has been threatening us for a long time with its nuclear capability but the IAF called its bluff with its strikes,” Modi said. His comments came following governmental denials that an Indian military attack in Pakistan was imminent, and may be carried out in mid-April.

  1. India has developed a weapon with the help of the Israelis that has no tactical or strategic advantage except as a suicide weapon. This goes back to Ben-Gurion’s psychotic wet dream he called the Samson Option. Now the whole world can experience the Holocaust. A real one this time.

  2. I think he’s lying again , the time and the place of the speech say it all , without any test or proof and evidence you can claim what do you want ,after claiming that india had shut down a pakistani F-16 jet and destroying a terror campaign by killing 300 which proved to be Wrong , this one is also be on the same category .

  3. Insane and utterly stupid in equal measure. What do the dumb Indians think will happen when they drop this on the Paks. Likely that Indian will be significantly eliminated.

  4. 53 years, even the CHUD’s couldn’t last that long. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean that you have to do it. The ancedotal reply to Fermi’s Paradox may come true.
