THE EAGLE WEEPS (BECAUSE THE EAGLETS ARE NO LONGER FREE)

THE EAGLE WEEPS
BECAUSE THE EAGLETS ARE NO LONGER FREE

By: Dorothy Anne Seese

The internet carried the image of the weeping eagle around the world shortly after the bombings of September 11, 2001.  There is a photo of the weeping eagle at my pharmacy and in other shops in my area.  It's probably in various homes, offices and businesses across America.  The first impact of the weeping eagle was that the eaglets, approximately 7,000 of them, died in a senseless terrorist attack on America, and their ashes are mingled with the air, water, and elements, they will never even be buried.  The eagle wept.

Now the eagle weeps because the eaglets who remain are no longer free.

They aren't prisoners of the Taliban, they are prisoners of fear caused by the terrorist attacks.  They are fearful of a war they do not understand, of attacks that may be coming in the future, and of a sudden insecurity that shattered the very underpinnings of our American sense of security and trust in our Department of Defense to protect us against all foreign enemies.

The eagle weeps because the eaglets are subjects of an overpowering government that cries out for more and more power over its citizens while neglecting to follow up on aliens who remain here illegally, or come here illegally in the first place.  The eagle weeps because government is more concerned with the dangers of "outlaws" at Ruby Ridge or Waco, who did nothing, than it is about foreign enemies who have struck a disabling blow to our economy, our families, and our way of life.

The eagle weeps because time after time, here in America, our lands, private property, have been grabbed by self-seeking interests with the cooperation or at the initiative of our own government (those folks we elect) and the rightful owners are dispossessed.   Witness the now overshadowed plight of the Klamath Falls farmers, the almost-forgotten McGuckin siege at Sagle, Idaho, or the Donald Scott killing at Malibu, California ... all so someone could have the private property of those who refused to sell or whose presence interfered with government plans.  Add to this list the loggers of Montana who fell victim to the hyper-environmentalists in our government or who pressure our government, and the useless and unconstitutional "laws" put on our books by the leftist enviro-nuts.

The eagle weeps ... the eaglets are not free.  Laws restrict the free exercise of religion in contravention of the First Amendment; other laws restrict the ownership of firearms by a misconstruction or misinterpretation of the Second Amendment; privacy is a mockery, not the right guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.  As far as the Tenth Amendment, it seems to have been given its first blunt trauma in 1865 and then a mortal blow by 1995, for whatever is to be done, is done by the federal government, whose powers, prescribed by the Constitution and limited by the Bill of Rights, run amok, killing the eaglets at will.

The eagle weeps because the nation has not repented of the things of which it is guilty ... gross hedonism and flagrant immorality, horrendous self-indulgence and, up until September 11th, a willingness to allow the name of God to be tossed around for cursing but never uttered in public places or schools in prayer.  We have returned to prayer in distress, but have we repented?  In World War II scare-prayer was called "bombshelter religion" and God help us if that is what it is now ... a temporary bandaid for a hurting soul, but not a true repentance and seeking after the presence of the Great and Almighty Creator.

The eagle weeps; the eaglets are not free and they are not safe; they do not acknowledge their Creator.

Those comfortable in the nest, who never look out, don't even know that the vultures are circling because the weeping eagle is wounded.

The eaglets that look outside the nest are intimidated by the police state powers against which few have the funds or other means to defend their nest; or they are ridiculed by the mocking birds that echo "radi-CAL ... radddikalll" as they try to come to the aid of the wounded eagle.

The eagle weeps in pain, for the eaglets who are not free because their God is dishonored and their Constitution is discarded.

Who will rescue the wounded and weeping eagle?

Who will rise up to save the eaglets?

Excellent post.

Our most dangerous enemy is the federal leviathan in Washington, D.C., which even now, during this time of crisis, hungers for more police powers. Freedom requires diligence. Instead, America yearns for the federal jackboot, security in exchange for freedom.

Yes this is a scary time. But I'm even more scared by what others besides our own government could do to us and the kind of life they would have us live. The Taliban way of life comes to mind. Our freedom is already threatened by outsiders. Just think what they would do to the Constitution... First things first. We already ARE under attack. Look, I'm just as worried as you are about what's going on and where it could lead, but for now, I have set my priorities.

Dorothy Anne Seese is full of crap.

She should take her unpatriotic and anti-American propaganda and stuff it where the sun don't shine.

In times like these true blue American's unite together.

Make a choice.

You're either with us, or with the terrorists!

Before 911, federal agents burned a man in his home and dozed it before the ashes were cold. He was said to be "stockpiling weapons", I think they found 3 rifles and 3 handguns or something. In another incident, a campground in MI was surrounded for 4 days (or so) and in the end two Americans lay dead by GOV fire. These incidents played out while 19 Islamic Fundamentalists, some on Government watch lists, some who had learned to turn a plane in the air but not land it, boarded 4 separate airplanes, hijacked them and did what they did. Amazing.

You are mistaken my friend:

Russia

A primary source of diverted weapons or material could be Russia. No Russian bombs have been officially reported missing, and Russian authorities maintain that no nuclear material has been lost. Rather, the outstanding question is whether a bomb, or fissile material in sufficient quantity to make one, has disappeared without Moscow's knowledge. While few outside observers dispute this, none are privy to the raw data that could validate or refute the Russian claim.

One concern long has been the allegations voiced by the former Secretary of Russia's Security Council, Gen. Alexander Lebed. After conducting an exhaustive inventory of Russian nuclear weapons in the 1990s, he found that 84 "suitcase" nuclear bombs had vanished from the Russian arsenal.

The prevailing judgment among Western experts is that Russia may have lost track of the paper trail for any number of bombs, but that the bombs themselves probably have been dismantled or tucked away in storage, rather than having been stolen. The infamous Russian accounting system using hand receipts stored in shoe boxes provides ample grist for this theory.

While there is no reason to doubt the sincerity of the Russian military and civilian leaders who have shouldered the custodial duties for Russian nuclear weapons, it is nonetheless possible that Russian nuclear security has been compromised from the inside without detection.

As noted, such a bomb could be transported to the United States inside one of the countless containers arriving at American ports every day. This avenue seems especially easy to arrange by bin Laden's al Qaeda network, which has extensive business connections around the world. Such a container could accommodate a good-sized atomic bomb, which could be detonated in a harbor. Or it could be unloaded and carted off in a small truck or van to any destination in the lower 48 states. Indeed, once unloaded from a ship, one of Russia's 'missing' suitcase bombs, which are thought to weigh some 60 pounds and measure the size of a small refrigerator, practically could be carried as a back-pack by a strong person.

Disconcertingly, it is conceivable that Russia may have built even smaller bombs, comparable to the truly attaché-class atomic bomb secretly built by the United States in the late 1970s. This U.S. bomb design was so compact and lightweight that it could have been covertly transported as innocent hand-luggage by any reasonably strong individual. In fact, a replica — with proxy nuclear material and conventional explosives in place of the real stuff — was disguised as a briefcase, and actually hand-carried on commercial airline flights from California to Washington in the early 1980s.

This is a good post. The examples he cites shouldn't be swept under the rug. The oath administered to our senior officials binds the swearer to defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The foreign enemy is clearly easier to identify than the domestic one, and that has lately been the problem. The domestic enemy, in some cases, are elected and appointed government officials who are wreaking havoc on the Republic.

You can believe whatever makes you comfortable. There are numerous citations available that make it clear that the Soviets lost control of nuclear material and hardware. You only need to do 30 minutes worth of research before you start getting a sinking feeling that the genie is out of the bottle. The relevant question is whether or not the material and hardware has found its way into the hands of the bad guys. Another relevant question is whether or not the hardware is still effective. If the hardware has been cached for use by Spetnatz forces, if ever required, and as has been reported by defectors then one might suppose that the life cycle of the hardware was fairly long. Engineers, especially Russians, usually build in some healthy margins on hardware such as this. But believe whatever you like.

Im sorry to say you are quite mistaken.Missing nukes are a frightening reality.And they could be delivered into a city with ease of tying ones shoe.As I read the post my blood ran cold at the suggestion of a missing Soviet tactical nuke in the hands of a Mohamad Atta.Nuclear blackmail?what a horrifying,very real possibilty.

Are Suitcase Nukes on the Loose?
The Story Behind the Controversy

By Scott Parrish and Dr. John Lepingwell

November 1997

General Aleksandr Lebed's recent allegation that some former Soviet suitcase size nuclear weapons may be missing has generated a storm of negative media commentary in Moscow and concern and unease in Washington. Even though many contradictory reports have been published, some patterns are discernable that provide important clues to unraveling the story of the "suitcase nukes."

In a meeting with a US Congressional delegation in May 1997, and again in an interview broadcast on 60 Minutes on 7 September 1997, Lebed claimed that the Soviet Union created perhaps one hundred atomic demolition munitions (ADMs), or atomic land mines. These low-yield (circa 1 kiloton) devices were to be used by special forces for wartime sabotage and thus were small, portable, and not equipped with standard safety devices to prevent unauthorized detonation. According to Lebed, some of the ADMs were deployed in the former Soviet republics, and might not have been returned to Russia after the Soviet Union's collapse. During his short tenure as Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Lebed started an investigation into the whereabouts of these weapons, but was fired by President Yeltsin before the investigation was completed.

Lebed's statements are not the first indication that the Soviet Union built ADMs, or that some might have gone astray. In January 1996, the Monterey Institute's Center for Nonproliferation Studies received information from a Russian presidential advisor that an unspecified number of ADMs had been manufactured in the 1970s for the KGB. Indeed, in the wake of Lebed's charges, former Russian presidential advisor Aleksey Yablokov told a US Congressional subcommittee on 2 October 1997 that he was "absolutely sure" that ADMs had been built in the 1970s for the KGB's special forces, and that these weapons were not included in the Russian Ministry of Defense nuclear weapons inventory nor covered by its accounting and control systems. Even earlier, in the summer of 1995, the Russian press published several articles claiming that Chechen separatists had either obtained, or tried to obtain, small nuclear weapons. Lebed's claims are thus not completely new, but they are noteworthy because he was in a position to gain access to information on such weapons.

Official Russian reactions to Lebed's statements were negative and derisory. Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin termed Lebed's allegations "absolute absurdity," while a presidential spokesman said "such superfantasies can only be the product of a diseased imagination." But as the official denials continued, they became increasingly self-contradictory and less credible. Some Russian military and atomic energy officials denied that the Soviet Union had ever created ADMs, and even stated that such weapons were either technically impossible, or prohibitively expensive. Others admitted that such weapons might have existed, but that they were all accounted for and under strict control. All agreed, however, that Lebed's claims were motivated by his desire to regain the political limelight and prepare for a future presidential campaign.

The official denials may well have been orchestrated and coordinated to impugn Lebed's reputation and reliability. If so, they were poorly conceived and raised more questions than they answered. Seemingly authoritative statements by Russian officials that portable ADMs are technically infeasible are belied by the fact that the United States built hundreds of them during the 1960s. The Soviet Union certainly had the technical capability to create portable ADMs, and may well have had military requirements to do so. Soviet strategy included diversionary actions and special force operations behind enemy lines, and ADMs might well have been stockpiled for use in a nuclear war. Certainly, if the United States developed and deployed ADMs it would be unusual for the Soviet Union not to follow suit. Thus, the claims that the Soviet Union did not produce ADMs are not convincing.

The claim that all nuclear weapons are accounted for is perhaps more credible, but is impossible to confirm. The misleading statements on the technical feasibility of ADMs do not bolster confidence in the claims that all Russian nuclear weapons are securely stored. However, most reports of the loss or theft of nuclear weapons have turned out to be based on weak evidence. The articles on nuclear theft that appeared in the Russian press in mid-1995 were apparently partly based on a report in the extreme right-wing Russian newspaper Zavtra (which in turn evidently was inspired by an article in the Russian-language edition of Soldier of Fortune, which claimed that suitcase nukes were smuggled through Lithuania to Iraq and possibly other countries). Zavtra's correspondent claimed to have met with a former Chechen "agent" who participated in the diversion of two suitcase-size nuclear weapons to Chechnya in 1992. To bolster its claim, Zavtra published the technical details of the devices. However, the technical details appear to be inaccurate, and weaken, rather than strengthen, the report's credibility. After publishing the article, the Zavtra correspondent was abducted, beaten, and threatened with death if he pursued the story. But after reporting the abduction, Zavtra retracted the original article, claiming that the meeting with the agent, and the subsequent beating, had been perpetrated by Chechen agents who hoped that rumors of nuclear weapons in Chechnya would strengthen Chechnya's hand in negotiations with Moscow. Nevertheless, the original article triggered a string of media reports and speculation concerning nuclear weapons in Chechnya, eventually prompting an explicit denial of the story by Chechen military leader Shamil Basayev. Thus, while there have been a number of reports of the smuggling of portable nuclear weapons, the most publicized reports do not seem to be based on firm evidence, and have been propounded by sources of dubious reliability.

Lebed's charges have therefore not been adequately dismissed by his critics, nor fully substantiated by his supporters. The claims that the Soviet Union never built ADMs ring hollow, but neither is there any solid evidence indicating the loss or diversion of such weapons. This does not mean that the threat of diversion does not exist, though. The social, political, and economic stresses that wrack Russia provide strong incentives for military "insiders" to steal nuclear weapons. While organizing such a theft would be extremely difficult, the consequences of a successful theft would be disastrous. Increasing security at nuclear weapons facilities, and especially at civilian nuclear facilities with weapons-grade fissile material, must therefore be at the forefront of the US-Russian security agenda. Increased work in this regard may help to ensure that stories of weapons or fissile material diversion remain fiction, and do not become fact.

Thank you for the posts. The Eagle does weep, for lost eaglets, and lost freedoms, past and future...

Speaking of nukes... how high did they count before they came up with the missing number "84"?

Truly frightening accounting here, same site as you quoted, and it is from 4 years ago!! Are the numbers now higher or lower?

Dear EOTS,

The question of whether or not Eagles weep is not the question. There was some "nose-art" on a USAF fighter about thirty years ago that showed an eagle about to sink its talons into a defiant mouse with an exposed middle finger. The caption read: "The Last Great Act Of Defiance." The Tali-bad men think that they can flick the American Eagle off at will, which they can. But, that once defiant mouse is going to be fed to some eaglets very shortly.

I am very curious about the out-break of Crimea-Congo Hemaraegic Fever (sp?) that has broken out within the Afghani refugee camps in Pakistan. The CCHF seems to be spread by infected ticks that can infect sheep and goats. There may be, according to the UNWHO, a need for some really large quantities of clean blood to stem an epidemic proportion of deaths from this out-break.

With the sanitary conditions that exist in Afghanistan there could be something worse than any American led invasion force of SOF troops. If CCHF does turn out to be an epidemic in Afghanistan, I wonder how fast we as Americans will be blamed for releasing it?

Eagles may weep, but do mice?
