Rose Gottemoeller, US Undersecretary of State for Arms Control has reported to the UN that, approximately 20,000 nuclear warheads have been eliminated from the former USSR by using them as fuel for the US nuclear fleet.

The roughly 500 tonnes of uranium is the equivalent of about 10 billion barrels of oil. Over the past 15 years, the uranium fuel has accounted for about 10% of all electricity produced in US.

The total cost of the uranium for the fuel was about $8 billion.

It is like giving $8 billion dollars to the mafia.

I’ll give you a clue, it benefited the American utilities, boosted executive bonuses and stock prices...provided very little benefit to the little people rate payers.

As in the golden( two decades)era with high electric prices and the extraordinary profitable nuclear power plants...did they do the same? Where have they saved up for a rainy day to get over the hump of a few years of rather inexpensive electricity...

Did the utilities make Russia plow back monies to all the poor uranium miners, the weapons fuel refiners and centrifugers that paid a terrible health and medical price?

This uranium is 1000s of times worst than blood...these isotopes were created over massive human suffering.

Did any of this money go to pay for the clean-up of the massive radiological dumps seen all over Russia...

This uranium is 1000s of times worse than blood diamonds ..these isotopes were created over massive human suffering.

...And it certainly didn't give them an opportunity to plow tons on monies back into maintenance of the nuclear plants or a do over making new and modern plants.

Who knows how it was that the old Soviet Union got to be the adversary with the U.S. fought proxie wars (Vietnam, Afghanistan etc.) and got to have such a huge buildup in oil drilling and natural gas, and now they get to 'disarm Syria' so that we no longer 'need to attack Syria' as we were told bigtime by Obama & Kerry just recently, those who lied about Benghazi and Osama's supposed capture etc. and now admit to arming & funding al-Qeada!?!
