      Nuclear terrorism is such a disturbing prospect that we shy away from its details. Yet as a consequence, we fail to understand how best to defeat it.

Along the way, Levi identifies the many obstacles, large and small, that such a terrorist scheme might Author: Michael Levi.   Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) terrorism (depicted also as ultra- or superterrorism) is often reported as terrorism using mass destruction weapons or WMD terrorism. This is however not quite correct reducing thus the wide spectrum of terrorist means and methods falling under this term (CBRN) only to military weaponry of.

Taking all this together, Buffet is right and nuclear terrorism seems indeed inevitable. In the second part of the book the author presents his approach to dealing with the threat. His objective is "A World of Three No's" - no loose nukes, no new nascent nukes, and no new nuclear weapons states.

How do we accomplish this?/5(46). The book I read to research this post was Nuclear Terrorism by Graham Allison which is an excellent book which I bought from a local bookstore. This book is about the possibilities of nuclear attacks by terrorist organizations which in theory could put even the attacks on the World Trade Center in the shade/5.

Warren Buffett declared: “Nuclear terrorism is by far the most important problem of our time.

And this is the most important book that has been written on the subject.” In the final months of the presidential campaign, the question of what the United States should be doing to address the threat of nuclear terrorism became a compelling.

Second, the surprising and largely unrecognized good news is that nuclear terrorism is, in fact, preventable. In these pages, Allison offers an ambitious but feasible blueprint for eliminating the possibility of nuclear terrorist United States once relied on the threat of mutually assured destruction to deter the Soviet Union from 4/5(1).

Levi's is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and technically informed treatment of nuclear terrorism. This important book makes a big contribution to public understanding and to public policy on nuclear terrorism, which might yet--despite the daunting odds--prevent it from ever happening/5(7).

This important book makes a big contribution to public understanding and to public policy on nuclear terrorism, which might yet—despite the daunting odds—prevent it from ever happening. Preventing a nuclear 9/11 hinges on foiling terrorist efforts to acquire the capability that would allow them to act on their intention.

Effective strategies on the state level to prevent nuclear terrorism by securing weapons and weapons-usable materials will not eliminate. Another possible nuclear terrorism threat are devices designed to disperse radioactive materials over a large area using conventional explosives, called dirty bombs.

The detonation of a "dirty bomb" would not cause a nuclear explosion, nor would it release enough radiation to kill or injure a large number of people. First, if policy makers in Washington keep doing what they are currently doing about the threat, a nuclear terrorist attack on America is inevitable.

Second, the surprising and largely unrecognized good news is that nuclear terrorism is, in fact, by: Nuclear-terrorism dangers can be divided into three categories: (1) dirty bombs, meaning conventional explosives or incendiary devices that disperse radioactive materials, (2) attacks on nuclear-weapon or nuclear-energy facilities, and (3) terrorist acquisition and use of nuclear-explosive weapons.

In addition, there is a discussion of the nuclear security regime, in general, and an important examination of both its strengths and weaknesses.

In summary, the book aims to extend the societal and political debate about the threat of nuclear terrorism. In the post-Soviet era, as the number of nuclear states has increased and governmental control over nuclear stockpiles has weakened, the threat of nuclear terrorism has become a growing concern of the global community.

By examining whether terrorists will 'go nuclear,' RAND's analyses have helped policymakers understand the probable risk and potential sources of nuclear terrorism, evaluate. Armageddon has arrived after Iran, a human rights abuser and the leading state sponsor of terrorism, acquires nuclear weapons.

As Vice President Dick Cheney once argued, “if there is a one percent chance” of a terrorist developing a nuclear weapon, “we have to treat it as a certainty in terms of our response.”1 This raises the question, though, just how real is File Size: KB.Nuclear terrorism is defined as the use of a nuclear stratagem to cause enormous desolation or the use or threat to deploying fissionable radioactive materials against civilians in order to attain goals that are either political, ideological or religious.
