They're Prepping Us for Bad news... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Listening to the news this eve on KCBS the first three stories have been about terrorism...a lot of stories the past week have been. It's almost like they turned on the faucet on info of this sort. While I'm sure the administration would like to see folks sticking close to home I'm also pretty sure the stories are real. Last night I heard our old nemisis Momar in Libya tell CBS new radio that Americans should take the domestic threat of terrorism very seriously. That's either disinformation or he's covering his butt (Libya has tradionally supported Algerian rebels).

The CIA is telling us that a terrorist attack is now "likely" and we now hear that the Algerian and friend who tried to sneak into Vermont with false passports had a car that the bomb squad's dogs found very interesting (no explosives in it now though). Yesterday's news also released the estimate of 5-15 terrorist attacks around the world by Bin Laden's stooges. Then a McNiel/Learer (PBS) segment on terrorism. I tell ya...this is scary stuff even discounting the thought that terrorists might not be content to just blow things up.

I think we're being prepped for the time in the near future that terrorists bring their dirty deeds to the good old complacent US of A. If I were King, in this situation, I'd let folks know the truth about terrorism and hope folks stayed home and out of potential danger. For the past year I've been more concerned about terrorism as a side effect of Y2K than I was about the machines (knowing they'll create a bunch of problems themselves) and it looks like it's coming to pass.

Last night I was in the local OES command center (a "feel good", "we're ready" type event) and spoke to a fellow Emergency Comm unit member. He's a fireman/paramedic and will be on a boat in SF bay on New Years eve. They were issued bullet-proof vests, Gas Masks, hoods and MOPP (protective chem/bio) gear. He also heard they'd have a couple SWAT team members on board. He believes/hopes the masks are only there for protection against riot control agents...I hope so too.

Strange Days....Best of Luck friends. Best advice is still "Don't be There"...

Don't let the boogeyman scare ya, when they finally pull his mask off it will just be our old 'Uncle Sam'.

Don: Like you, I believe there is a legitimate threat of terrorism, however, also like yourself, I think it is a bit ODD that suddenly we are hearing about this all over the media. Too convenient, but that is just my two cents.

Smoke and mirrors.

Just a little U.S. government sponsored terrorism......

This is one of those friend of a friend of a friend stories, however, I'll repeat it for the for what it's worth department. A friends friend is a San Fran Police Officer who reports that the FBI has delivered several thousands of body bags to the SF Police Dept.

(SLIGHTLY EDITED) General Patton's Address to the Troops General George S. Patton, Jr. Before the commencement of Operation Overlord. Somewhere in England. We'll win this war, but we'll win it only by fighting and by showing the terrorists that we've got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We're not going to just shoot the sons-of-bitches, we're going to rip out their living Goddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy cocksuckers by the bushel-fucking-basket. War is a bloody, killing business. You've got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours. Rip them up the belly. Shoot them in the guts. I don't want to get any messages saying, "I am holding my position." We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the terrorists do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy's balls. We are going to twist bin Laden's balls and kick the living shit out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the nations that host the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like shit through a tin horn! From time to time there will be some complaints that we are pushing our people too hard. I don't give a good Goddamn about such complaints. I believe in the old and sound rule that an ounce of sweat will save a gallon of blood. The harder WE push, the more terrorists we will kill. The more terrorists we kill, the fewer of our people will be killed. Pushing means fewer casualties.

If I were king I would find out where these folks are and blow their respective butts off the face of this earth. Along with their friends and cohorts. We must defend our homes, our loved ones and our country.

God Bless America

FITBONE--then why didn't they also deliver gas masks? Their is presidence. Anyone got any ideas on this one? I've been struggling with this "oversight" for months...

-- Hokie (, December 22, 1999.

should be easy to find them.... places like the Whitehouse, the CIA headquarters etc...

Waco,Oklahoma and God only knows how many others...

-- scapegoat (Govt@gonna cry Terrorism.soon), December 22, 1999.

Virginian, thank you sir. Well said. Ironic that the enemy identified in Patton's edited speech may be the faction which brought about his death. Bitter irony. (Too bad that web site is down as of 12/21; no url to evaluate the alledged event)

-- Hokie (, December 22, 1999.

The local radio bulletin talked about increased security concerns issued for the Holidays, need to arrive to airport early and don't carry on a wrapped package or expect it to be openned.

TPTB are ratcheting up the concern. This could be prep for a staged event just to make sure Joe and Jane Public jump to the correct conclustion or there could be bonafide threat. Either way I forgot to prep Depends. Damn always miss something important.

The piper plays the tune.....all of you suckers dance!

-- INever (, December 22, 1999.

INever prattles......"The piper plays the tune.....all of you suckers dance!"

Come a little closer INever.....closer.....closer......aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh

Now kindly remove the flute from your ass!!

-- Craig (, December 22, 1999.

Every year they say not to bring wrapped packages as they might be searched. This isn't any different this year.

-- Sheri (, December 22, 1999.

Sheri, "Every year"? wasn't always like this....Just a few years ago you didnt have to show ID blah blah blah. The stores play the Christmas Music, most people BUY it...the media & govmt play their tune...most people sing along and BUY it too!!! The American flag wavers don't fool me. There are a lot of dead Native Americans (bounties offered for heads in the latter 1800s in California) who would agree with me. And dahling, I don't play the flute, I dont listen to the pipe organ. And INever change handles:) Goodbye Forever!!!!

-- INever (, December 22, 1999.

Let's see....

Industrial Accidents = terrorism Infrastructure Failures = terrorism or cyber attack Computer Failures = any 1 of 200,000 viruses or cyber attack Supply Problems = viruses, panic, terrorism Financial Problems = cyber attack, viruses, panic Biological Accidents = terrorism Oil Supply = oops, maybe a hole in the plan

I'd say the asses are pretty well covered at this point, now just firming up the areas of most concern....
