The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Attack on Iran’s nuclear plant likely to radioactively pollute Kuwait

Kuwait faces more risk than any other country in the region….. This gives Kuwait the right to request that the United States refrain from any military action that would put the Iranian plant at risk, the experts believe.

Bushehr plant damage risks 90% radiation in Kuwait KUWAIT TIMES, 11 Jan 12, : Kuwait is not prepared for any negative impact from military action against the Bushehr nuclear power plant, experts say. “A radiation leak from the Bushehr Plant puts at least 90 percent of Kuwait’s population at risk of being affected by the worst kinds of cancer that affect the brain and kidney”, according to studies mentioned recently by experts from inside and outside Kuwait who are following the development of Iran’s nuclear projects.
The expert, quoted in an Al-Dar daily report published yesterday, indicated that Kuwait is not prepared to thwart risks of a radiation leak that could happen as a result of a military strike or natural disaster affecting the plant.

The report quotes the experts as saying that an environmental organization assigned to monitor radiation levels is not equipped to give accurate readings regarding hazardous radiation leaks and spread levels.

Kuwait faces more risk than any other country in the region. Located
17 kilometers (11 miles) southeast of the city of Bushehr in Iran, the
Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant is closest to Kuwait than to any other
country in the region.

This gives Kuwait the right to request that the United States refrain
from any military action that would put the Iranian plant at risk, the
experts believe.
While experts said Kuwait lacks the equipment to detect a radiation
leak, they warned that contamination of Arabian Gulf waters could be
carried by currents to all Kuwaiti territorial waters, killing marine
species there before risking major health problems to the population.
“This is enough reason for Kuwait to seek international help in order
to prevent escalations from taking place in the region”, they added.
