Catch this! Some fresh-brewed Homeland Insecurity published today on
WorldNetDaily. The Department of Defense (DOD) has scheduled its second major,
three-day exercise to combat nuclear terrorism, this time in the Charleston,
South Caroline area. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t know Charleston
had a nuclear terror problem, shades of Sept. 11, 2001, the day on which some
six drills were going, enough to distract anybody from doing anything when the
drills went real.
But Charlestown is not a strategic town. It’s a vacation spot, nice beaches,
good fishing, boat rides, excellent restaurants, southern cooking, and nice
people, you say. So, kick back your heels and watch the thermal bomb go off
like a Charleston sunset. No, no, no! But then why is the DOD goal coping with
the catastrophic results of a terrorist nuclear attack here? Ah, you say, Charleston
is a major US port city. And therefore the roast pig, bad term, test sight for
nuclear holocaust by the sea.
But the exercise and the military’s Joint Task Force-Civil Support will
be hosted (excuse me again) . . . headquartered at Fort Monroe, Virginia. And
the three-day drill (which could go real, n'est-ce pas?) is for commanders and
representatives of other federal agencies that would be involved in (catch this)
the consequences of a 10-megaton nuclear blast, enough to decimate an American
city. Let me fill you in on some of the particulars of such a blast, and remind
you that what hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki were 20-meg blasts.
The 10 will crisp wood frame houses, common in this area, for a distance of
more than a mile from ground zero and produce medium rare damage for a mile
and a half. The damage radius increases with the power of the bomb, about in
proportion to its cube root. When imploded at the ideal height, a 10-megaton
bomb, 1,000 times as powerful as a 10-kiloton weapon, increases the distanced
by 10, that is, out 11 miles for severe damage and 15 miles for moderate damage
of a frame house.
Are you grokking this, strangers in a strange land? We’ve passed the
science fiction stage. And now, folks are playing reality games with the concept
in a military fort near a major American seaport city. Let me also tell you,
the fireball for a 10-megaton explosion will have a diameter of about 4.8 miles
across. A flash of thermal radiation is given off from the fireballs and spreads
out over a large area, and with steady intensity.
The amount of surging thermal energy, penetrating radiation, climactic effects,
and clean H-bombs effects, well, just
click here to download details. They ain’t pretty. But then, neither
were 9/11’s, remaining ugly as hell nearly five years later.
In fact, the real danger here is that an administration in danger of
extinction itself for its wars, its financial bungling, its corruption, its
catastrophic Katrina, its trillions in tax cuts for the rich and subsequent
debt, its utterly inhumane cuts to social services, in short, its horrible five
years . . . the real threat is that this administration will use this go-real
nuclear holocaust to blame on Al Qaeda, and get itself off the hook and hanging
platform, and elevate national terror into a national state of emergency, eliminating
all democracy, with a call for martial law, under Der Bush & Company.
Think I’m kidding. Officials from the Department of Homeland Security,
including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA, remember them from
New Orleans?) and senior Coast Guard brass will be on hand. The WorldNetDaily
article claims that no part of the exercise will take place there, though the
target of attack is Charleston. Maj. Gen. Bruce Davis, the task force’s
commander, will oversee the exercise from Fort Monroe. What a blast (I hope
The Joint Task Force-Civil Support -- part of US Northern Command, which oversees
the Defense Department’s domestic military activity -- is a standing joint
task force composed of active, reserve and National Guard members from the Army,
Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, as well as civilian personnel. Well,
party on down. Just don’t you dare blow up Charleston.
Last summer, the article also tells us, a similar exercise, “Sudden Respond
‘05” was led by Virginia’s Fort Monroe-based Joint Task Force-Civil
Support. It too, duh, was designed to simulate a nuclear terrorist attack that
the highest US officials, including President Bush (one of the lowest), have
said is the No. 1 threat facing the nation, and they if anyone, will make happen.
The drill, we’re told, is strikingly similar to a scenario detailed by
Graham Allison, former Pentagon assistant secretary for plans and policy and
current Harvard professor, in his book, “Nuclear Terrorism: The Ultimate
Preventable Catastrophe.” It’s only preventable 'til it turns real,
just like 9/11, bunky. And you don’t need to be a Harvard professor to
know that, dumb ass idiot.
Nevertheless, Allison wrote, “A month after the Sept.11, 2001, terrorist
attacks, the Central Intelligence Agency presented Bush with a report that al-Qaida
had smuggled a 10-kiloton nuclear bomb into New York City."
The president, according to the book, dispatched Nuclear Emergency Support
Teams of scientists and engineers to New York to search for the weapon, which
was never found. Never found, imagine that. And imagine that I live in New York
and never heard a frigging word about that. And maybe some “terrorist”
from al-Qaida, shorthand for CIA, took it and put it under the White House,
because it has done an amazing job of decimating the agency, and laying blame
for 9/11 at its feet.
Allison, sport that he is, described the devastation that a 10-kilaton nuclear
bomb would bring to Manhattan if it were detonated in the middle of “historic
Times Square.” Some 1 million people would die almost immediately. Is
everybody staining their trousers? I hope so. But ho, there’s more from
Allison. Catch these hot chestnuts.
“The resulting fireball and blast wave would destroy instantaneously
the theater district (and all those homos in it), the New York Times building
(and all those gray stories), Grand Central Terminal (and all those gray commuters),
and every other structure within a third of a mile to the point of detonation.”
And that’s not all he wrote. “The ensuing firestorm would engulf
Rockefeller Center (melt the ice ring in a couple of seconds), Carnegie Hall,
Empire State Building, and Madison Square Garden, leaving the Knicks and Rangers
homeless (sorry), not to mention a landscape echoing the World Trade Center,
the sons of bitches . . .
“From the United Nations headquarters on the East River and the Lincoln
Tunnel under the Hudson River, to the Metropolitan Museum in the eighties and
the Flatiron Building in the twenties, structures would remind one of the Alfred
P. Murrah Federal Office Building following the Oklahoma City Bombing,”
another black ops by our government friends, with a bomb placed on the east,
a bomb in the center (which went off and rocked the building down) and a bomb
placed on the west side of the building -- the east/west bombs for early and
second responders, which were taken away and decommissioned. You don’t
think it was that dumb-ass ammonium nitrate and fuel oil bomb in the Ryder truck
that did anything but break the glass windows, do you? A team of men were working
in the garage the week before the explosion, rewiring things, men in uniforms
that read Government Agency Operations.
The monsters would like to strike again, folks, so take this very, very seriously.
And take this WND
article and substitute George Bush for Osama bin Laden and CIA for al-Qaida,
who have planned to use nuclear weapons in a terrorist attack on the US. The
plan is dubbed “American Hiroshima.” In fact, as first reported
in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin,
captured al Qaeda (CIA) operatives and documents suggest the weapons have already
been smuggled in the country.

Citizens of Charleston and America, get your butts out there from Jan. 31 to
Feb. 3, to protest, intercept, act up, criticize, analyze, neutralize that Fort
Monroe, Virginia, drill. Your lives and the lives of thousands, hundreds of
thousands of others depend upon it. Do it now. And thank the tip slipped to
me about this draconian drill. Wherever you are, you know who you are and I
