The greatest challenge whe building an atom-bomb is not to get enough
clean fissable material, It s the the question: "How fast can you raise
the mass from non-critical to critical?" Any mass of plutonium that
gathers to a critical mass with the speed that is feasible by mere
gravitation will simply go off in a *slow* burst of radiation.
That would be catastrophic for the area around the place where this
happens but it will happen without a explosion.

There is nothing to ignite -- concrete does not burn and the fuel in the
facility is burning already.
The poisoning is the cancer. But: Plutonium has a very high
melting-point and it is the heaviest material known to be stable, it is
not good in spreading.
There is nothing even close to the clouds from the Tchernobyl-desaster
as of now. And there are people living today even in Kiev. Berlin is as
near to Tchernobyl as Kyushu is to Fukushima and we are still alive too...

Dont get me wrong: the Fukushima case is indeed a catastrophe, that will
have its impact upon the whole earth. But it is not a EOTW-event. It is
one more good reason not to eat sea-fish though. But first and foremost
it is another evidence for the fact, that buisinessmen have too much
power in this world.
That is absolutely true. And to say, that this is the End of the world
does not help them in any way to get along with that desaster.

So you see yourself that there is no logic in such a "clandestine
weapons program" and still believe, there is one?
