Bloviating Zeppelin: Fiction Becomes Fact

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Fiction Becomes Fact

Authors sometimes set forth novels that become remarkably prescient.

Recently it was revealed that, the result of investigations conducted over roughly the last year, Saudi Arabian authorities foiled a massive plot against the kingdom:

Apr 27, 10:20 AM (ET)
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Police arrested 172 Islamic militants, some of whom had trained abroad as pilots so they could fly aircraft in attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil fields, the Interior Ministry said Friday. A spokesman said all that remained in the plot "was to set the zero hour."

The ministry issued a statement saying the detainees were planning to carry out suicide atttacks against "public figures, oil facilities, refineries and military zones" -some of which were outside the kingdom.

The ministry did not say the militants would fly aircraft into oil refineries, as the Sept. 11, 2001 hijackers flew planes into buildings in New York and Washington, but it said in a statement that some detainees had been "sent to other countries to study flying in preparation for using them to carry out terrorist attacks inside the kingdom."

From the 2005 Oliver North book entitled "The Assassins":

In this book, terrorists manage to take down the Saudi kingdom via a series of attacks against the royalty as well as the oil fields themselves in order to render America powerless.

The al-Qaida terror group, whose leader Osama bin Laden is a Saudi, has called for attacks on the kingdom's oil facilities as a means of crippling both the kingdom's economy and hurting the West, which he accuses of paying too little for Arab oil.

Fiction becomes reality.

Further, just as an historical note, two American authors envisioned terrorists flying airplanes, utilized as weapons, into primary US government buildings in DC.

First, Tom Clancy's 1994 book entitled "Debt Of Honor" envisions a JAL 747 flying into and striking the US Capitol.

Next, Dan Brown's 1995 novel, "Storming Heaven," has Henri Cazaux aiming his heavy 747 at the White House.

I've listened to Air America a few times, when they've been solvent and on the air in my market, and many of them (to include Randi Rhodes) are of the opinion that the GOP and the Mad Bush Conglomerate working at the behest of Haliburton are merely fright-peddling in order to sell more military orders, bloat the pocketbooks of military/corporate America, enslave the poor into soldierhood (though it's a complete volunteer army and already proven that middle class soldiers clearly outnumber "poor" soldiers), abrogate the rights of Americans and turn the country into a fascist, goose-stepping state.

Conspiracy? Not. There is a saying about Hells Angels that is equally applicable to the LAPD via Rodney King and the Power Brokers of the United States: "two Hells Angels can keep a secret when one is dead."

Make no mistake, Defeat-o-crats: the terrorists are here, in sleeper cells in the United States. Your good friend, George Tenet, says so. It is a wonder that we have not yet experienced our own spate of Homicide Bombers at bus stops, shopping malls, sporting events and movie theatres.

I predict: we shall see precisely this.

There is a reason we fight. I fear that, due to our national complacency, we won't believe we are actual targets, that people actually want to kill us, that 9-11 wasn't some simple one-time fluke, until it happens once again. It will take more burned, mangled, eviscerated, exsanguinated and avulsed bodies for this nation to wake up.

As I am occasionally wont to say: "yes, we are that stupid."

Sadly, there are some that not even mass murder by Muzzies would change their minds. They will never be convinced.

Point of order, that would be DALE Brown, one of my favorite authors, read Flight of the Old Dog...

From 13 DEC 2000 testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, Ralph Mutschke, Interpol's Assistant Director, Criminal Intelligence Directorate:
"I would like to draw the particular attention of the Committee to the Groupe Islamique Armé (GIA), considering the events of December last year. On 14 December 1999, Ahmed Ressam, was arrested near Port Angeles, Washington State, while trying to enter the United States from Canada. He was in possession of a timing device, explosive materials and false identification documents. Ahmed Ressam is known to have shared a Montreal (Canada) apartment with Said Atmani, a known document forger for the GIA. It has been established that before Ressam attempted to enter the US, he was in the company of Abdelmajid Dahoumane in Vancouver (Canada) for a 3 to 4 week period. An Interpol Red Notice was issued regarding the latter. The investigation has revealed links between terrorists of Algerian origin and a criminal network established in Montreal and specializing in the theft of portable computers and mobile telephones. The group in Montreal was in contact with individuals involved in terrorist support activity in France, and with several Moudjahidin groups who are active in Bosnia.

Subsequent to the arrest of Ressam, the Montreal police arrested twelve persons who were committing theft of valuable goods in cars in the Montreal downtown area. The proceeds of these criminal activities were sent to an international network with links to France, Belgium, Italy, Turkey, Australia and Bosnia.

The events in Canada and the United States should be seen in a wider perspective. Indeed, intelligence shows that several Algerian terrorist leaders were present at a meeting in Albania, which could also have been attended by Usama bin Laden, who was believed to be in Albania at that time. It was during this meeting that many structures and networks were established for propaganda and fund raising activities, and for providing Algerian armed groups with logistical support. The arrest at the Canada-US border in December 1999 may indicate that the Algerian terrorists are prepared to take their terrorism campaign to North America."

Notice one Usama bin Laden in Algeria/Kosovo/Bosnia late 1990's working with locals there to hook up with GIA, a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot that works in Algeria. Not, also, organized crime presence in same. Note Usama bin Laden working with GIA on Millenium plot. Finally note the 'bringing terrorism to North America'.

Why, yes, we are that stupid.

And Congress to the Nth degree.

More of that and analysis of Iranian influence in Bosnia, and the cross-linking that went on and is probably still going on there. Worse stuff contained later that does not bode well for the US: FARC and Hezbollah.

FARC has lobbied the US Congress to get some reprieves so as to stop funding Columbian counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism. This is now in the works as Nancy Chamberlain...mmmmm.... Pelosi! Has announced same. Interesting thing is FARC tried to assassinate President Clinton while he was still in office on a State visit to Columbia.

Suicidally stupid.
