Why Do South American Drug Runners Keep Getting Caught With Uranium?

As Russia, China, and other nations hostile to the US boost their presence within South America, should it come as a surprise to find uranium being trafficked by South American drug runners?

There are reasons to believe that this has been happening under the table for some time now, and it is not good at all.

Venezuela has very close ties with Iran.

The current rulers of Venezuela exhibit openly close and strong ties with countries like Iran. It is not just a question of if they will build warheads with nuclear capabilities. Maybe they even already have them.

Anyone believing that they will not dare to use these warheads is wrong. The way a theocracy thinks is much different from our Western approach to life. Eleven thousand virgins are waiting.

Venezuela, showing a growing hostile attitude towards the USA and the West, has collaborated actively with the Iranian theocracy for over ten years.

Back then, the Venezuelan administrators did not support just Iran. They were already starting to improve ties with the different flavors of Colombian guerrilla too. It seems that, no matter what that group is, if they defy the USA and the West, they deserve a place at the table.

The citizens of Venezuela know their country could become a warfare launching pad, but there is not much they can do. They are under an iron grip and are being stomped on with increasing violence as time goes by. Even though the mainstream media doesn’t show it, this is the reality here.

South American uranium trafficking is not merely rumor.

This is an illegal activity and a real threat to world stability. Anywhere. The coincidence of rogue Iranians shutting down the cameras inside their enrichment plant according to the compulsory IAEA agreements with the recent trafficking events seems to remain ignored by the media.

Who receives the benefits? If a plant is used to produce radioactive materials for civilian use, why shut down the cameras in the first place?

Iran, China, and Russia seem to believe that this country will be easy to occupy and become a stronghold to threaten the USA domain over the Caribbean Sea and Central America, including Panama.

It seems Colombia is lost now, under the control of the former guerrilla member G. Petro. The shady result of this election is nothing positive for the future of the Americas.

Bolivia too has been on the Iranian radar for a long time as well.

Since 2006, at least. Bolivia’s strong man, Evo Morales, is another hardcore communist line in the region and holds a strong hate speech line against “Yankee Imperialism.” And Bolivia is rich in uranium and lithium, both considered strategic materials.

There are basically about six main areas where uranium is located there. While not all of these reservoirs are easily accessible, those easier to exploit are in the region of Tachira, a frontier area under the control of the socialist party and Cojedes. The other regions need access by air, using helicopters. Interestingly, the last studies of the radioactive levels of the mines started in 2019. Since 1998, not even one official position for the exploitation and peaceful use of this material went public.

The concerning part is that there is no possible way to know how much uranium is being extracted, traded, and where it is going/has gone.

Even common criminals here have been detained for uranium trafficking. These are people without any training or special gear. They possessed drugs for dealing, too. Uranium was just the icing on the cake for them. How many people are trafficking these materials? Is there any way to find this out? How is uranium trafficking even possible?

This is not the sole incident either. In March 2020, six men in Venezuelan were detained for uranium trafficking as well.

Regarding the alliances with troublesome friends, the ties with these rogue states interested in the forbidden materials are not new.

The Ahmadinejad speech in 2012, literally saying “our weapons are human values,” is enough to raise even deeper concerns. They forged “scientific” and “technological” alliances, but none of this money or agreements seems to have worked to improve the quality of life and general welfare of the Venezuelan people. Opening huge supermarkets with Iranian products is not exactly going to benefit anyone else but the owners.

The car factory here is now in ruins, as many others built or supplied by the Iranians are left behind to rot. So no, the “technological” cooperation approach is not true. It hasn’t produced a vehicle in many years, when it was once one of the flag projects of the Hugo Era “to get rid of the Yankee trades” and “start the technological independence process.”

According to local sources, none of the projects, including the affordable housing (with cracked buildings not surviving even 15 years), offered results in valuable improvements and additions to Venezuelan society.

For decades Venezuela was a strong ally of the USA.

However, the hate speech against the USA undermined this relationship, detonating and blowing it to pieces. It allowed the influx of former URSS soviet weaponry and use the country’s vast unpopulated areas to train terrorist groups. However, compared to the real possibility of Iran using uranium illegally extracted from South America to manufacture weaponry, this is a minor issue. The reality is in plain sight.  

The recent detention of an aircraft in Argentina and Chile, one of them piloted by a Qud Force high-rank official, adds fuel to an already white-hot situation.

How about we connect the dots?

  • The plane belonged to a company sanctioned previously and blacklisted, Mahan Airlines.
  • There exists an active, illegal operation of radioactive mineral extraction conducted by unknown people.
  • There is an aerial bridge working the Tehran-Caracas route.
  • Iran ships without any information about what they transport to come and go as they please. (Here’s an Iranian ship with unknown cargo.)

How a direct flight connection economically benefits both countries, when none of their people are remotely wealthy enough to have a business or even visit Iran, is out of the question. A total lack of transparency is the signature of the operations in this Iran-Venezuela relationship.

If a soft approach continues, the consequences for the West could be catastrophic.

The lax positioning of the US politicians is unbelievable.

Arguably, Iran’s major interest in Venezuela is to get the uranium out.  For argument’s sake, let’s say for a moment that, all of the uranium is not going to the plants nor end in the facilities to manufacture nuclear weapons.

Nevertheless, this uranium is effectively used as a currency to turn around international sanctions. They use the country as an alternative financial center in the shadows.

The lack of serious opposition from the US to the Iranian theocracy allows for a complicated situation in the medium term.

How this is going to evolve is yet to see.

The threat is a real one. It is there and will not go anywhere unless severe actions start to show the world will not tolerate a nuclear Iran.

  • Interesting. Suspicious minds might wonder if Iran is using Venezuela to bypass both sanctions and uranium enrichment oversight. Perhaps doing in your country what they can’t do in theirs: enriching uranium to weapons-grade status.

    • I suppose all that is possible, but my question is: what does it all have to do with prepping? If I want to read alternative news, I’ll go to an alternative news site like Zero Hedge or any of the others. I come here to read about prepping.

      • Normally the idea that preparation depends on having good information would apply, but I have to agree, this article is a bit far afield. I’m much more concerned about what the US government will do to its own people than what Iran may do via proxy in South America.

        In general, its your government you have to watch out for.

        • Dear Timothy,
          My intention with this article was to alert that radioactive material is being illegally extracted at three hours by plane from the US borders.
          How you use this information to improve your prepping plans is up to you.

        • Finally a coherent comment. Thanks Johanna. Things happening unnoticed could mean a great deal at the end of the day.

    • This is far more possible than you would ever believe…but “Iran is a peaceful nation”…????
      There is way too much under the waters that what we can see with the naked eye.

  • Hillary and Uranium 1 in Iran-2015. That “mission” almost got billary killed and that’s why she wears the back brace the size of a small bed now.

  • What possibility is real? How about a “dirty bomb” being built and smuggled over the border by one or more of FJB’s million “got away’s). Set of one or more of these in major US cities shortly before mid-term elections and…wahlaa…Martial law, suspension of the Constitution and elections. Most of all the final and perfect vehicle for imposition of the new world order…

    • True, but it would actually be easier to smuggle the components into the US and build the device here.

      Pretty much anyone with some basic glassware and access to a pharmacy or beauty supply store can make the explosives if they know how, which we know that rando jihadis in England do because they’ve done it.

      Then all one needs is the “seasoning” which cartels can obviously import if they desire.

      But then, perhaps they don’t desire such a thing. If they were implicated in the detonation of a radiological bomb in the US their “job” would become a lot harder instantly.

  • Worldwide uranium deposit stats don’t add up on the internet info. South American uranium should be the least of our worries on this front, Kazakhstan on the other hand should be.. USA corruption may be the usual cause of trouble on this front as well, don’t trust the government, any government in this matter..

  • I agree with Doly Garcia & Timothy.
    The only way this opinion piece/article relates to prepping etc., is this hotlink in the middle:

    (Don’t want to starve after an EMP? Check out our free QUICKSTART Guide to what to eat when the power goes out.)

    Now that’s useful.

    • Well, I agree to disagree. I have been checking the market for some Geiger meters to take with me just in case the guy next to me carries a bag of Uranium. If you don’t find that some information is worthy to improve your plans, is up to you. Radioactive material illegally extracted in a country allied with one of the worst enemies of the West…unrelated to prepping?
      Oh, well…

  • This article is a combination of doom porn and bomb, bomb Iran hysteria. The US cannot afford to be the world’s policeman for uranium. USA has failed to keep illegal drugs out of it’s own borders as well as illegal invaders. There is no reason to think we can control anything on a world wide basis and we shouldn’t want to. Uranium ore is not worth that much anyway. It would have to be processed to be worth anything and then enriched to be useful for weapons. Both of those processes are very expensive and require high tech to accomplish. I will not lose any sleep over the allegations in this article.

    • A compulsory item of the peace treaty was to keep the cameras of the enrichment plant ON. These were turned OFF. Just making a point….
      I wouldn’t worry though. Surely someone will bomb the heck out of it soon.

  • Stupid goons. You want to have it both ways. Yes Iran is a theocracy. However as such, and a Shia Muslim one, they have two separate Fatwas by both the current and former Ayatollahs which forbid Nuclear weapons. They are deemed un-Islamic and these fatwas are NOT able to be reversed. If the Ayatollah tried to do so, he would be removed from office. The Ayatollah is not what you fools think. he is NOT all powerful. His only job is to adhere to the Q’ran and in this he may NOT interpret even. If he does anything else, he is removed by popular demand. Always coming from the same family, which traces back to Muhammad and all the prophets in fact, there are other candidates. The Fatwas against nuclear weapons are absolute. It would tear Shia Islam apart to even try to change this.

    I am a Shia Muslim! I know what I am talking about. You idiots are just sold on Zionist propaganda. Iran has not had a nuclear weapons program since the Shah and that was under your tutelage. You’re being played for fools. To believe this can be any other way, then you have to pretend the Islamic Revolution is fake and not a theocracy at all. You’re idiots, plain and simple.

    • Calling names just give me the reason.
      In case you haven’t noticed it.
      Thanks for your support,
      The writer.

  • Iran’s interest in nuclear power, is purely for energy, and above all they want to become a supplier of enriched uranium, because the country has huge reserves.

    • This is simply not true. Iran has programs for nuclear weaponry since decades ago to threaten their enemies.

  • “The way a theocracy thinks is much different from our Western approach to life. Eleven thousand virgins are waiting.” LOL, what a completely idiotic screed by a typical sub-human Western supremacist. The “West” – the Evil Empire – is expert at killing, destroying, colonizing, pillaging and endless crimes against humanity and has been busy in these pursuits for many centuries. Iran, on the other hand, has been a peaceful country for centuries, save for those times the Empire brutally attacked and colonized it. Pull your dead head out of your stinky arse and smell the roses, truth is easy to find, but you first have to admit your blind hatred for all that is so much better than you.

    • “Iran has been a peaceful country for centuries”.
      Is that the same country where a guy beheaded his 17 years old wife and showed the head on the streets?…asking for a friend…

  • Jose makes the specious link to Iran and nuclear weapons. There is no evidence Iran has a nuclear weapons programme, even the CIA admits that. Venezuela was a US “ally”. As Jose states that he was ” an upper middle class professional” and “a former worker of the oil state company”, It would appear that Jose was part of the “striking professionals” aka CIA assets that tried to overthrow the democratically elected President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. Why do I say this? Former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury of the Reagan Administration, Paul Craig Roberts, has stated for many years that the US does not have friends or allies, it has vassals. As for the drug smugglers, it has been an open secret for decades that the CIA is heavily involved in drug smuggling, which is a huge part of its “Black Ops” budget. If there is Uranium being smuggled, they would know about it.

    • If you believe that labeling me as a foreign “agent” is “harmful”, trust me: you made my friends’ day. They laughed a LOT with such nonsense. ????
      Hugo died of natural causes, remember?
      And I was a middle class man now POOR thanks to the holocaust the guys you defend unchained in my country.
      You try too hard to defend a cause lost from the beginning.

  • There is another shoe to be dropped before the Nov elections. I expect that the Dims or the PTB will have a hand it it. I rule out Nothing. The Dims will do ANYTHING to win.

  • Warmongering BS. This is the flashback from how we have been treating others in this world.
    Reap what you sow.

  • This article is a piece of garbage. The USA shoulders the blame for the Iran nuclear fiasco. Want Iran to stop?, simply remove the illegal sanctions. But if I as the leader of Iran faced a warmongering Mafia run US government, I would protect my nation with the only means the Pentagon understands. North Korea is now safe from invasion because of its nuclear program. America has lost its diplomacy and right to point fingers at those countries she has waged economic warfare against.

    • I wrote this. If you pretend to know more than I do, feel free to come to Venezuela and do your own research. ????

  • Back in WW2 the Germans were considering creating radioactive dust bombs with uranium against their enemies, killing everything the dust clouds touched, like a super duper Agent Orange. Of course the US actually followed through on the latter. How did that get past the chemical weapons bans?
    “The lax positioning of US politicians is unbelievable.” Perhaps like the influx of fentanyl across the border. Are our representatives knowingly looking the other way, perhaps with bribe monies stuffed in their accounts, to ensure they are safely out of the way in their million dollar bolt holes when the atomic devil comes a-knocking?

  • When I first read this I book marked it and put it on the back burner, because of what it implied.
    My reasoning for doing so is because I wanted to see how things developed.
    The timing of the infomercial that aired in New York City about ” what to do incase of a Nuclear attack” played on TVs a couple weeks earlier then the release of this article also caught my attention.
    One of which is why would the city of New York find it necessary to all of the sudden air such information? Do they know something we do not?
    The deep state has a template for their actions as they like to broadcast their intent and they do it with out impunity, never are their words or acts investigated after the fact, an example would be Bill Gates and his use of vaccinations.

    Since the release of this article and the recent search of President Trumps home, the FBI released a statement warning law enforcement of potential ” right wing terrorism threats specially implying the use of a possible dirty bomb”

    This was the smoking gun that I was waiting for before I sounded the alarms.
    These people are projecting what they themselves have planned for the city of New York and they are determined to blame or should we say frame anyone who does not share their globalist communist agenda.

    Thank you Jose for sharing this Information. It has not fallen on deaf ears. God bless you and your family I pray for your success in your future endeavors.

    • The Middle Eastern tyrannical theocracies are determined to wipe off the West to extend their contamination. And that includes America from Alaska all the way down to Patagonia, but people just can´t see it. Just like they couldn´t see the biowarfare unleashed since Nov. 2019.

      Thanks Mr. Bravo. Happy to help!
