No-Fly Zone To Be Enforced By Shoot-To-Kill Order During NATO Summit
CBS2 Chicago ^ | May 2, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 05/02/2012 11:30:19 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

CHICAGO (CBS) — A new report reveals plans to keep residents and dignitaries safe during the NATO Summit include a no-fly zone, with a shoot-to-kill mandate for those who break the ban.

As CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports, the government is warning small plane pilots that if they enter the no-fly zone during the summit, they may be shot down.

This is no joke. It will be enforced for May 19 to May 21.

The flight advisory was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration. The advisory bans non-commercial aircraft from flying within 10 nautical miles of downtown Chicago and below 18,000 feet.

A nautical mile is about one minute of arc of latitude along any meridian. It amounts to 1,852 meters, or about 1.15078 standard miles.

“The United States Government may use deadly force against the airborne aircraft, if it is determined that the aircraft poses an imminent security threat,” the advisory says. “Be advised that noncompliance with the published (notice to airmen) may result in the use of force.”

The advisory says lesser violations by airmen might result in civil penalties and the suspension of airmen certificates, as well as criminal charges.

The only aircraft allowed to fly within the restricted area include regularly-scheduled commercial passenger and cargo carriers, police, and military planes supporting the Secret Service.

Okay. I’m ready for both NATO and the U.N. to disband.

A shootdown is a high-regret decision. The airplane and debris cloud will come down, somewhere, for sure.

All that mass and fuel landing in an inhabited area could cause many casualties.

I see this as part of that new “no trespassing near the president or anybody else SS designates” law, another increment of control.

There’d have been media-sponsored rioting if the “cowboy” Bush administration had made such an outlandish and “irresponsible” threat against Americans like that.

We never even had those kind of orders when the Cold War against the Soviet Union was at its worst stages. Did the Soviet Union reform ? Who exactly is attacking NATO ?

Thanks, dang nab stuttering fingers.

The NOTAM alone is news yet the real story will be how many pilots violate it and the results. Both in the air and on the ground.

The FAA also defines a nautical mile as 6076.11548 feet.

A cover story will be concocted about the pilot's terrorist ties.

It seems to me that all some jolly joker would need to do is to get a large model airplane that would be rigged to take off on remote control, then fly a designated path until it got brief encoded instructions to change its flight path.

It would drive the authorities nuts, and in their effort to shoot it down with real weapons not designed for shooting down small drones, they could cause a lot of collateral harm.

They would try to jam its control signals, but that would do nothing as it would not respond to continual control signals. Then how do you kill a mosquito with a sledge hammer?

Yet Obama reinstated FRISA wiretapping, multiple citizen database trackers, call correlation and more with not a peep of protest, even from the people screaming for bush’s impeachment for doing the same thing.

Looks like the summit will have looser rules of engagement than Afghanistan.

“? Who exactly is attacking NATO ?”

I have a feeling that NATO will soon be attacking us.

Sure looks as if Spain and England may go to war with South America. The leftist thieves down there deserve some but kicking.

I remember back in the early '50s there were Nike misiles deployed at sites along Chicago's lakefront. Supposedly to ward off the Ruskies.

“Sure looks as if Spain and England may go to war with South America.”

They’d likely be fighting against us, since Hussein hates England and stands with the “Maldives” (called Malvinas by Argentina and Falklands by the British).

Hussein has no genuine feelings what-so-ever. That is a part of his character. Sociopath. He will do whatever the Goldman Sacs, McCain Rino’s and Pelosi Dino’s tell him what to do. Which explains why McCain walked the plank again for Emperor Zero’s Afghanistan Photo op. Right now we are married to Europe financially. Granted, if the Titanic Europa is sinking, the powers that be would certainly join in carving up the remains.

Newly published audio this week reveals that Vice President Dick Cheney’s infamous Sept. 11, 2001 order to shoot down rogue civilian aircraft was ignored by military officials, who instead ordered pilots to only identify suspect aircraft.

I think Hussein picked up enough from his mentor to have genuine hatred for all America stands for, and our closest allies.
