Do I believe weapons of mass destruction may be in place for remote detonation? If I believe anything can be planted anywhere, will you think me fool? If Capitol is destroyed as thoroughly as Trade Center, what will life be like in rest of country? If two or three other cities are destroyed at same time, what will life be like for survivors? Is it all too horrible to consider? What will happen to first responders? What will happen to you and me and those we love? What should we be doing to prepare for what leaders have made inevitable? I have published my answers to these questions. No one has contributed additional suggestions or ideas, although I don't think I am only one with these ideas.
I was disappointed that a small circle of friends had no interest in lifesaving. I can understand this. Alarmists have been shouting warnings for centuries, back to biblical times. Sometimes destruction came after warnings. Sometimes it did not. What do you think of odds today? Has our reaction to Al Qaeda's attacks discouraged them? Has it prevented them from planning bigger and better things? Has anyone seriously diminished their will or capability? Why haven't they deployed weapons of mass destruction yet? Have they misplaced them? Are they storing them near you?
I know there is tremendous resistance to thinking in a way that poses such questions. We have a guiding philosophy in West that never SEEMS to fail us. Just pretend nothing is wrong. Even leaders aren't doing that anymore! In fact, it is that very philosophy which has perched us on edge of abyss. We can't afford it another day more.
We plan our self defense. We plan for our survival. But we don't wait for situation to execute plan. We ask hard questions. What would America be if it was simultaneously unplugged from its electrical umbilical and Internet communications, globally? We spread word that a survival of fittest situation is possible and probable. Who will prepare for terror not yet imagined in a nation slated for destruction by those capable of success?
And why is it we want to survive, anyway? It is to help others. Is that now a strange idea in America? Can this idea outlive government help? As America goes, so goes rest. Can we possibly point America in a better direction? Does it all have to be destroyed before we can start over? We can start now. If we prepare for end of Western Civilization (You have my word something better will replace it, when we LET GO) and all is wine and roses; were we fools? Not really. We learned things about us better known early than late. We learned a little independence in land of free. Who should be embarrassed?
If you want to take up lifesaving hobby, just say and write truths that can save lives. If you have no thoughts of your own, borrow some from others and pass them along. The idea is to spread word. We are not trying to create a secret survivor society. We'd just like to see that everyone knows they have made choices. If poor choices have been made, new choices are in order. Last, but not least, why don't I get feedback on thoughts I share?
