In the listing it is made clear that they want to be ready in the event of nuclear fallout which has lead many to speculate that this could be in response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster or perhaps in anticipation for an attack on an active Iranian nuclear facility.
The DLA is apparently looking for upwards of 400,000 dollars worth of the thyroid protecting tablets at a time when many government officials have openly told American citizens NOT to buy potassium iodide.
In an article published by Business Insider on March 10th, some of the possibilities as to why this order has been put in were explored.
The U.S. has bought potassium iodide tablets in the past, and is now looking ahead to scenarios, possibly spurred by last year's Fukushima crisis.The request comes at a time when radiation is being found in Kelp off the coast of California, polar bears are coming down with a mysterious sickness in Alaska, and a radiation wave is headed our way.
As the federal solicitation is quick to point out, "The recent earthquake in Japan in March of 2011 and the resultant nuclear crisis has renewed interest in this item.
Of course, potassium iodide would also come in handy if there were to be an airstrike against a target laden will nuclear material, say, like the sites in Iran. One of the big concerns surrounding the practical devastation of those nuclear facilities is the radiation it will unleash into the surroundings.
Destroying one of the most likely Iranian targets, the 1000-megawatt Bushehr nuclear plant, would create just such a concern.
This on top of a stark warning by a former UN adviser that the world could literally be destroyed by Fukushima.
When you throw in the possibility of an Israeli and or US strike on an active Iranian nuclear power plant you can clearly see the nuclear nightmare the world now finds itself in.
The idea that the Israeli or US government would literally purposefully blow up a nuclear plant the size of Chernobyl is absolutely insane and shows the level that the globalists are willing to go to reach their goals.
