Old Glory In Distress? The American flag in
distress mode -- there are concerns that the United States is not only in
financial disarray, it may well be severely attacked by nuclear weapons in
multiple U.S. cities within the next ten months, some say, prompting mass panic.

Fear, Facts, Fiction And The Future Of Our Great Nation: June 2008-May 2009

The following is meant as a serious examination, with some solutions.
What follows is contextual -- not conspiratorial. There is speculation
here to be sure, but documented facts and materials linked in light blue govern much of what you are
about to read.
Part One: Fear
"From Washington tonight, we have some extremely alarming news to report: We
are being told by the White House that two nuclear bombs have apparently been
detonated and landed in the United States. To repeat: two nuclear missiles
have exploded here in America. No word yet on the cities affected or whether
the nuclear detonation was part of a terrorist attack or accidental occurrence
borne of human error. We strongly advise you to turn off your television
and immediately go to the nearest nuclear shelter and await further
You have a dread and a panic so deep that you
remain static. Horrified, you cannot comprehend what you've just heard.
Surely the U.S. mainstream media, with its penchant to distort and confuse, has
got it all wrong. Scared to death, you dare to leave the confines of your
own home, apartment, cardboard box -- whatever you call "home" -- and start
scampering out into the wilderness. But you begin to feel a strange heat.
Has a biological attack really happened? Nuclear, heaven forbid? You hear your
neighbors screaming, cursing and crying. Instinctively you telephone your
kids who are across the country -- or maybe downstate -- or in another country
altogether. No answer. You are so terrified that you don't have any
presence of mind to leave a message. Instinctively you run back inside
your house, where you freeze, not knowing what to do next.
Ten minutes later comes a knock on your door.
Still afraid, you don't have time to ask who it is. Pardon me Rhett
Butler, but quite frankly you don't give a damn about checking first to see
who's at your front door. You just want to know if you are living out a
nightmare or experiencing an extremely inconvenient dream. Heart pounding,
you open the door and you see seven U.S. military soldiers dressed in army
fatigues. They are armed.
"Are you Sarah Louise Jennings?", says one of the square-jawed soldiers.
You reply in the affirmative.
"We need to take you away for your own safety. There could be more
missiles to come. Staying here would be risky."
You obey and are escorted from your home. You are driven, blindfolded like
Al Pacino was in "The Insider". You suddenly faint. When you come to, you realize that there
are at least 3,000 people with you. All of them have blindfolds on.
All of them are American -- either Black, Asian or Hispanic. You realize
that you are one of the only white citizens in this cavernous place, a giant
camp reminiscent of the camps in the 1940's where Americans of Japanese descent
were interned during World War Two, in the advent of the attacks by the Japanese
Axis on Pearl Harbor that brought the U.S. into that war. The very man who
once proclaimed that "we have nothing to fear but fear itself," that's
right -- Democratic U.S.
president Franklin Delano Roosevelt -- issued an executive order back in the
1940's, which was later undone by the U.S. Supreme Court
(in Korematsu v.
United States), ordering the internment of all Japanese-Americans.
You have just been told two things: one, that the U.S. suspects that Iran is
responsible for the nuclear attacks which you learned of on the urgent TV news
broadcast. It turns out that there have been explosions in a number of
American cities. You are told that retaliation against Iran has already occurred,
with several nuclear missiles successfully hitting their targets in Iran.
It may have happened before the November 4, 2008 U.S. presidential election to
secure John McCain's ascendancy to the White House.
You don't know how to react to this nuclear event, only that you are more afraid than you were an hour
ago. You think the world and America's place in it, are coming to an end.
You pray you are wrong.
But the most telling thing is what you hear next: you have been deemed an "enemy
combatant", according to one of the military officers. You are puzzled by
this, because although you've disagreed politically with the war in Iraq and
protested it, you have never advocated violence or committed violence against
anyone. You have had spirited and passionate conversations with friends
and advocates of positions that oppose yours, but never done or wished violence
to anyone at all.
It is November 11, 2008, or January 19, 2009, or May 1, 2009 -- May Day.
If it is still early January 2009 -- because of this sudden, unthinkable state
of emergency, Barack Obama or John McCain is the president-elect, as he has not
yet been officially inaugurated. The current president is still in office
and will be for the foreseeable future beyond inauguration day, because of the
nuclear attacks. FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security -- the two
agencies that floundered miserably in 2005 during Hurricane Katrina -- now run
the entire United States at this most vulnerable time. Your local city or
state government ceases to exist. No Rudy Giuliani from 9/11/01 to assure
everyone that everything will be okay and to keep shopping.
Just FEMA, the DHS, and the president, who is now also the governor of each and
every city and state in America. The country's borders have been sealed
off. You can't get in or out.
