NUCLEAR WAR-FEAR Author says prepare for nuclear terror Former official: Not trying to cause panic, but prevent it
U.S. officials should get serious about nuclear terrorism by urging Americans to prepare for disaster by stockpiling food, water, building shelters and planning evacuation routes, says an author and former member of the Indiana House of Representatives.
In response to reports al-Qaida is planning an "American Hiroshima" nuclear attack on the U.S. using weapons and operative already smuggled into the country, Don Boys, author of Islam: America's Trojan Horse, says he is not trying to panic the public.
"In a few days or weeks, everyone who has not prepared for disaster will panic," he says. "I would like for you to realize that you may have already waited too long to properly prepare, and if you wait much longer, it will be too late to buy gold, guns, and groceries. ... The name of the game will be survival, only survival. Forget the job since it will be gone. Your Social Security or pension check? Don't count on it. Protection from local authorities? Probably not. You will be on your own."
Boys bases his advice on the words of U.S. officials from President Bush to Vice President Dick Cheney to the directors of the FBI and Homeland Security who have said nuclear terrorism is the greatest threat facing the nation and a virtual inevitability at some point.
"If U.S. officials are wrong and there is no danger from terrorists ... then breathe a sigh of relief, thank God for His mercy and continue with your life," he says. "However, if you are wrong (and U.S. officials are right), you and your family will be cold, hungry, and dependent on others to provide for your basic needs. Is it wise to take such an unnecessary risk?"
Boys suggests Americans purchase non-electric tools, guns, ammunition, food and toilet paper. He says it would be wise to set aside small bills as well as quarters.
"A few boxes of No-Rad (potassium iodide anti-radiation tablets) will be more valuable than gold if you are in a contaminated area," he says. "Get a supply today."
WND has reported that captured al-Qaida leaders and documents outline plans for a devastating terrorist nuclear attack on the U.S. plans that have been under way for more than a decade. The reports are confirmed by author Paul Williams in his upcoming book, "The Al Qaeda Connection."
Intelligence analysts and sources disagree on the details of the way bin Laden's "American Hiroshima" plan unfolds. Some G2 Bulletin sources emphasize bin Laden's commitment to re-enacting the 1945 attack on Japan with one nuclear detonation, followed by another days later.
Williams, however, sees a much more devastating, coordinated, all-out, surprise attack coming.
"The next attack, according to al-Qaida defectors and informants, will take place simultaneously at various sites throughout the country," he writes. "Designated targets include New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Houston, Las Vegas, and Valdez, Alaska, where the tankers are filled with oil from the Trans-Alaska pipeline. To orchestrate such an incredible event requires not only the shipment of the nukes into the United States but also the establishment of cells, the training of sleeper agents, the selection of sites, and the preparation of the weapons without detection from federal, state or local law enforcement officials. Unlike 9-11, that cost less than $350,000, this event already has cost a king's ransom, and bin Laden will not waste the billions in expenditures, the years of planning and his coveted 'crown jewels' on an attack that is ill-planned, poorly timed and carelessly coordinated."
Other sources interpret some of the same information, based on captured al-Qaida operatives and documents as well as defectors, differently. They project an escalating series of attacks, each followed by blackmail demands upon the U.S. government and the American people.
Yep, my city's just been nuked and darn, I've run out of toilet paper...that will certainly be at the forefront of people's worries. (end/sarcasm)
Here's to praying that it's all a figment of his imagination, but even if there is a small chance of a coordinated nuclear attack, the folks who haven't at least done the bare minimum for preparedness will be kicking themselves squarely in the ass.
Reminds me of all the hype before Y2K
Wanna buy some freeze-dried chili that's only slightly past the "best by" date? :)
I think i'll just be well armed and ready to meet my maker
In truth, a lot of hard work went into preventing problems with Y2K. It was the preparation ahead of time that reduced the event to a few small glitches in the system.
If they try anything like this, the US should immediately nuke Mecca, Medina, the West Bank, Gaza, Damascus, Tehran, and Quom (or however you spell that sh*thole).
Makes sense that the author is a former legislator. Politicians have no clue what a good policy is, they only know politics. Stockpiling food is not the way to deal with nuclear terror. The way to deal with nuclear terror is surveillance, border control, and detection.
He forgot to mention beer,Jim Beam and smokes...he doesn't know what he's talkin aboot.
He must have stock in Charmin.
I can see it now: the remake of the old Twilight Zone episode where all the neighbors are trying to break in to this guy's bomb shelter: "Can't you at least spare some TP?"
The towel heads are just too incompetent to pull it off. Getting a nuke, maintaining a nuke, smuggling and maintaing the nuke into the US, concealing the nuke and maintenancing the nuke in concealment, hiding the nuke from US NEST is too much for the IBM crew to deal with. It isn't going to happen, ever.
Agreed, I actually called my county water supplier and spoke to the engineer. They had spent a LOT of money upgrading their system for Y2K.
It's just that there was also a lot of hype as well.
I was considering saving the Sears web site to disc for multiple use...
Hump Day blues?
For those that are taking this B/S seriously, a tip. Learn which leaves and grasses are non-toxic to the rectum and forget about toilet paper.
It will be hard, if not impossible, to tote large boxes of toilet paper on your trek through the nuclear wilderness, and taking a dump will be the last concern on your mind.
If I told you in 1994 that terrorists would eventually bring down both Twin Towers, I can imagaine your response then as well.
