I think this is one of these cases where both John & Eugen are
correct, depending on how you look at it. (Stands on one leg squinting
to the right).

U-233 can be used to make nuclear bombs, the US actually has made and
tested them, and some references say U-233 is *better* than P-239 for
making nuclear weapons.

(That's Eugen's side).

On the other side U-233 requires very careful processing and handling.
It would be very difficult to get useable amounts out of a thorium
reactor and you would probably have to stop the reaction while you
tried. i.e. it would take government resources even to attempt this.
So, not impossible, but very, very unlikely.

(That's John's side).

Now, carry on!
