Beginning Monday, WorldNetDaily will feature a three-part excerpt of Jerome Corsi’s blockbuster, “Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians.”
In the chapter excerpted, Corsi explains how the ruling mullahs in Tehran could use the nuclear technology they are bent on developing to help terrorists in the U.S. detonate an improvised nuclear device, or IND, in a large American city.
Corsi provides the reader a hair-raising description, second-by-second, of the devastation that would occur if an IND were detonated outside the Empire State Building in New York City.
Writes Corsi: “Within the first second, a shock wave with an overpressure of 20 psi (pounds per square inch) extends four-tenths of a mile from ground zero. This destroys the Empire State Building and all other buildings within that radius, including Madison Square Garden, Penn Station and the New York Public Library. The reinforced steel in the skyscrapers does nothing to support them. Everything within the first four-tenths of a mile from ground zero is reduced to a pile of debris hundreds of feet deep in places. No one in this area survives or even knows what happened to them. The blast kills somewhere between 75,000 and 100,000 people instantly. Those outside in direct line with the blast are vaporized from the heat. Those inside the buildings who survive the blast are killed as the buildings collapse.
“A mushroom cloud and fireball expand upward. Instantly, all communications that depend on this area for broadcast stop. National television stations and hundreds of radio channels are instantly off the air. Cell phones throughout the region malfunction. New York City drops off the world communication map. It is not like 9-11, where the rest of the world could switch on their televisions and watch live what was happening.”
Come to WorldNetDaily Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to read all three excerpts.
