~ SO WHO DOESN’T LIKE the idea of being the big boss? It’s even a kid’s game, as you try to scramble and push to the top of a pile of dirt or snow or whatever: “I’m the king of the castle! / And you’re the dirty rascal!” No doubt Apple has an app for this now, so no kids or risky outdoors activity need be involved.
Actual power– at work, in a family, in business or politics– is a much more difficult balance. Canada– and America under Obama– war us of what power is like when misused by narcissistic bullies, as power OVER, versus duty and responsibility TOWARDS.
Recently, a Canadian reporter broke the news that Justin Trudeau had decided to cut short a proper court case, and issue an apology and $10.5 million payout to admitted murderer and terrorist Omar Khadr, of the Khadr Terror Family or terrorists and murderers for Islam. The news broke on July 3rd (you’re welcome, America!), and since then the uproar has hardly down-roared.
Survey says… 91% of Tory voters, and even 2/3 or Liberal and NDP voters oppose what Trudeau has done. That’s pretty astonishing, given the ideological differences amongst many Canadians.
The current Ottawa regime has been in full red alert damage control mode since then, but none of the manure they are throwing seems to be sticking to the wall, or calming the country.
This Khadr issue is a symptom. No matter if you think Trudeau did the right thing, the larger and nagging question about Canada’s White Obama is getting pretty clear: Shiny Pony Trudeau is not a lover of due process, of moderation, or of duty, responsibility, and deliberation. He’s more of an.. autocrat. The Rule Of One: King Selfie I.
Sadly, studies warn that positions of power attract the sociopaths, the narcissists, the autocrats and users & abusers, whose concerns about absolute power are not that it corrupts absolutely, but that it is rather nice. In America, just-past President Chocolate Jesus and now in Canada Prince Selfie I both seem to be world-class needy & deeply broken people presenting themselves as charming Glorious Leaders who deserve absolute utter unquestioning adoration and obedience.
Such absolute corruption is no solution for politics, but is an abiding problem, and a failing of the power of the vote, when the times, they are foolish and fad-following and OMIGAWD THAT HAIR.
Actual Power Serves
Being unaccountable– downwards, or upwards– is the very shape of dictatorial rule, and taking the place of God. “What I and people who agree with & advise me” taken as the law of the land or the eternal Law Of Heaven is usurpation on both accounts. “Believe it simply on my say-so”? Solid as quicksand.
I have had minor power in the past, and still exercise it as a husband and father and person in the community, and it’s properly not a club to threaten with or abuse, but a crown of humbling thorns, a calling to do the right thing in the changes and chances of this fleeting life, an opportunity and calling to redeem the time, and leave people and the world better than you found it. It’s not all about “Me”.
May God save us from ourselves, from ungodly demigods and autocrats and power-lovers. May he teach all in power to be servants first. +
~ AS THE RAIN pours showers of blessings on the Eastern part of this Royal Dominion, I cannot but give thanks for this land– though the last 50 years have been sub-optimal under the progressitopian Trudeau Cult.
Above all, in The Year Of Our Lord 2017, Christians in Canada need to pray for our country, for we have wandered into deep and deadly waters of life and death, sin and evil, and our elected officials and robed rulers wish to command that sweet is bitter and bitter is sweet.
This was founded as and is still a Christian land, founded on truth, faith, virtue, and Christian principles– we have no legal fiction of the separation of church and state, as if citizens could somehow divide themselves inwardly to ultimately serve God and Caesar both. Our due earthly obedience has proper limits, which we forget at our eternal peril.
Here we have no abiding city.. but the lines have fallen unto us in pleasant places; indeed, we have a beautiful inheritance (Ps. 16). Thank you, O Lord.
O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love thou dost in us command.
We see thee rising fair, dear land,
The True North, strong and free;
And stand on guard, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
O Canada! O Canada!
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.
O Canada! Where pines and maples grow,
Great prairies spread and lordly rivers flow,
How dear to us thy broad domain,
From East to Western Sea;
Thou land of hope for all who toil!
Thou True North, strong and free!
O Canada! Beneath thy shining skies
May stalwart sons and gentle maidens rise,
To keep thee steadfast through the years,
From East to Western Sea.
Our own beloved native land,
Our True North, strong and free!
Ruler Supreme, Who hearest humble prayer,
Hold our dominion within Thy loving care.
Help us to find, O God, in Thee,
A lasting, rich reward,
As waiting for the Better Day
We ever stand on guard.
This Justin: When you’re losing the Globe & Mail, the CBC, and now the Toronto Red Star… you’re in one heaping helping ‘o’ trouble.
Of course it’s fun to dogpile a smug, morally superior jerk when his failings are trumpeted and revealed for the world to see… what about some prayer, too?
That the current Prime Minister of Canada become a better man, leader, and more fairminded to all Canadians; that this will lead to repentance and amendment of life, and not just subterfuge; that he become a calmer and more unselfish man, husband & father, and leader of Canada; that he lose some of his narcissism, and replace it with humility, wisdom, dignity, self-deprecation, justice, and moderation.
In short, that Justin Trudeau become who God The Trinity in Unity truly made and wants him to be.
I deeply dislike Justin Trudeau and most of what he stands for– but I would still hope he repents of his sins, follows Christ, and when death takes him, that he find his final home in the Mansion promised by The Father, through the Son.
Lord have mercy.
“Now, everyone can play detective and analyze the Zapruder film until they identify the woman on the grassy knoll. But, basically, the prime minister got pissed off, bolted across the aisle of the House, grabbed another dude, accidentally knocked a woman out of the way in the process, then dragged the guy through a crowd of people.”Vice

~ BINKS DEMANDS CLARITY— Let’s Get This Right: The NDP are trying to make this all about them, and thus the public are missing the point: 1-2-3 are the real issues. Yes, part of it was NDP silly-tactics. Whatevs.
(1) Libs were trying to push through radical legislation to curtail democracy & limit debate (assault on Canada, parliament, freedom) (2) Vote was slightly delayed, Trudeau blew his top, decided to get bossy (classless clown alert) (3) Grabbed & attempted to frogmarch opposition Whip Gord Brown to his seat (assault), Brown told him to let go of him
(4) NDippers and others crowded in (deliberately?), PM told people to GTFOutta his way (5) He carelessly bumped an NDP MP woman (no “elbow smash”) (6) Prince Justin then gets in a shouting match with Mulcair (7) Liberals withdraw controversial motion to limit Commons debate
Weather Network: Fort McMurray fire crosses into Saskatchewan: now 480 000 hectares: “To put things into perspective, the fire is nearly the size of Prince Edward Island and covers a greater distance than the entire area burned in all of last year’s wildfire season.”
“So much for post-partisanship. The PM’s temper tantrum – what else can we call it? – left the Speaker, Liberal Geoff Regan, pathetically having to remind the House that “it is not appropriate to manhandle other members.”
+ + +
THE OLD SAYING has it that who you are when you are alone, or think nobody is watching, or think you can get away with something, reveals much truth about your actual inner person.
So Canada’s #ElbowGate reveals– or reminds– Canadians about the actual character of their new glorious leader, his inward shape and parts and habits and all the rest. I’m surprised it took this long– aren’t you?
And remember– despite all the excitement of this stuff, and despite his smiles and endless selfies, the real Justin is consolidating powers and dragging us towards the smooth & cooperative model of Communist dictatorship he so lovingly admires, so he can remake Canada in his own image. Just imagine.
Progressives Are Nasty People
Thus, the preachy Liberal progressive fehmihnihst who issues apologies for long-ago forgotten Canadian failures gets into a Fail-scrum in the House of Parliament.. out of the blue, witness PM Trudeau physically grabbing and dragging on (i.e., assaulting) the Opposition Party Whip Gord Brown (who told the PM to let go of him) and in the by-going, elbowing NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau, and yelling “GTF outta my way.”
A momentary lapse? Sits down ASAP? Nuh-uh. Prince Justin immediately has the class, decorum, maturity, gravitas and dignitas to get into an undignified screaming match with the outgoing leader of the NDP, Thomas Mulcair.
Imagine if past-PM Harper had done even one of these things. Exactly.
Just what kind of person goes across the room to lay hands on a fellow MP and try and frog-march him to his seat?– it doesn’t matter the reason– then carelessly elbows a woman like she’s not even there, and is heard swearing? He wasn’t ‘trying’ to hurt anyone, but he didn’t seem to care, either. And frankly, so what if the NDP were in on it?
In good news? The MPs were gathered to vote on the government’s physician-assisted dying legislation, bill C-14, which was defeated 172-137. Get used to the taste of defeat, pretty-boy.
HRH Boy Emperor
Let’s review– aside from his election-boy character, our current Prime Minister has always and actually been hot-headed, foul-mouthed, aggressive, short tempered, thoughtless, entitled, immature, narcissistic, superficial, smarmy, anti-democratic (he admires Communist Chinese government, remember?), and someone who considers due process and basic manners to be needlessly frustrating and optional. He got frustrated the other day– but over what?
He’s had a long, sweet, comfy honey-moon from the media and the public; and if this is how he responds when things are good, one shudders to imagine what will lash out from the PM when things are tough, dangerous, protracted, or not what he wants. I predict: beware this man, as the Bible says,
“His talk is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart; his words are more soothing than oil, yet they are drawn swords.”
My Will Be Done
At best, Justin is a paper Catholic, but a progressive above all. If there’s no truth, or exterior right & wrong, or God who holds us accountable for every word and deed, then (a) looking good is more than enough, then (b) do what you want, as long as you don’t get caught, then (c) gradually start to do whatever you want, and get your abuse victims used to your ways, and (d) apologies when you get caught don’t have to mean much.
People say “He’s his mother’s son”; I think we just caught a glimpse of the hateful, woman-smacking, bullying former dictator of Canada, Justin’s father Pierre. This just in, Justin promises not to smack Parliament around any more like last time, brings flowers, apologizes (twice), talks sweet, smiles, bruised but needy Parliament feels bad for making him feel bad, takes him back, agrees it was mostly her fault.

~ IF YOU RECALL nothing else of this article, then only this: your governments & government-pandering mainstream media are mostly liars and/or puppets, news-“massagers” censors, and concealment artists. It’s been that way for generations.
“Ooooo.. Shocking, Binks: so tell us something we don’t know, elf-boy.”
OK, but that means it’s really up to concerned people around the world to do their own research, listen and learn, trust but verify, fact-check and reserve judgment– and above all, not to all go running off in one direction like a starving dog after a gobbet of bloody meat every time the media tells us to, or the powers that be try to distract us.
Some Big Questions
As yourself– is this ALL the current news? The FULL story? What are we NOT being told, or, what is being mistold? Is this current issue a false big deal, or only a small part of the truth versus other more important things which are being covered up or backpaged?
How is online social media manipulated to pull our attention here and there, or to cover things up which are otherwise in plain view? FaceBook & Twitter & MicroSoft are not your special buddies.
For those who are on a disability, unemployed, or retired, this is a special opportunity to redeem the time. Learn up on news-finding, fact-checking, and puzzle-assembly. As the TV show The X-Files said, “The Truth Is Out There”… and no, I’m not directing you to alien / Nazi moonbases, or werewolves amongst us.
I’d also warn that some rabbit-holes have no bottom, and you don’t want to waste all your time on clock-killing topics. Be warned.
Here’s part of the hidden truth of this mess– the fraudulent current “Refugee Crisis” is a stage-managed deliberate policy. It is also a form of 4th Generation warfare, in which mass immigration is another way of conquest, crushing nationalism and localism in favour of globalism. And to crack down on Jihad at home with more “Peace And Security” soft-fascism. It’s a twofer: using Jihadis to beat ourselves over the head, and ginning up “useful crises”.
In this or related news, curious Canadians will get NO straight answers from Ottawa, CTV or CBC, or the well-meaning in our society, who jump on every handy bandwagon and tell anybody with doubts that they are mean, racist, bigoted, and hateful. Just take that of granted, and look to decent alternative media.
The Phony ‘Migrant’ ‘Crisis’
What then? Research. Ask around. First question: “Is This True?” Go YouTube & Internets wander asking “Cui bono?” (“Who benefits?”). Watch out for hardcore loonys.
People who are interested in the actual story of this cooked-up ‘refugee’ crisis? The following links at least break the mono-story, and the grip of the mainstream media in your head, and help you to ask and think and see through the spin. Don’t settle for the spoon-fed answers. Try these:
Iraqis posing as Syrians. Hm. Didn’t see that on CNN.
Passports? Actual verifiable IDs? Further, DAESH/ ISIL/ ISIS has promised 4000 new ‘migrant/ refugee’ terrorists in Europe via the flood of ‘refugees’– more Brussels, more Paris, more Charlie Hebdos. This is a self-inflicted wound, and the elites don’t care if the peasants get hurt: they have master-plans afoot.
I’m not saying these alternative commentators are The Truth, and all other or offical news is not. Trust, But Verify.
However, military-aged Muslim men of no specific address? Back of the line, because they may want to import terror, sharia, mosques, and slow demographic conquest into the dying West, and they’re willing to wait decades to do it. “Refugees”? Plain-clothed paramilitaries, maybe? And most not from Syria, but Iraq. That is, mostly FAKE refugees.
Yes, we made this problem by Western warmongering, wrecking other countries, and not having children– but importing our own conquerers just makes it all so much worse. As I said in this recent piece, we must adjust our minds to this new kind of warfare, where everybody is on the front line, and war is everywhere.
Indeed, Pope Magical Thinker Happy Unicorns apparently even attributes some kind of magical powers to the.. ‘migrants’. And, it appears, that even European dirt is super-magical, and will change all newcomers from people brought up in tyrannical sharia-run Muslim icky countries into regular 21st century soft-socialist Europeasants. Ri-i-ight.
That Other Pope, The Elf
In this matter, Ye Not-Pope Binks III doth hereby decree, promulgate, and officially state and mutter– Trust, but Verify. Be WILLING to love & care for & help ACTUAL refugees, when and if they are proven to be so. “Be as wise as serpents, but as gentle as doves”, said Jesus.
When. And. If.
The Real Thing, Only
My Dad was raised in Scotland, so technically on that side, I’m a first generation Canadian, the son and grandson of immigrants through Halifax’s Pier 21, someone who has committed myself to the life, society, well-being and future of this welcoming land of Canada.
Until we have the full story, and real immigrants, let’s stay informed, trust but verify, speak out and educate, and don’t pretend or think you live in a world where very much actually is as is made to appear. Even evil people knew that. ~
“A war is something that can be won by one side or the other and there is no path for ISIL to actually win against the West,” Trudeau said. “They want to destabilize, they want to strike fear. They need to be stamped out.”

IT IS AD 9, AND a shaken Caesar Augustus, first Emperor of the Roman Empire, has been roaming the halls of his palace for days, weeping with rage, banging his head on the wall, and shouting “Quintili Vare, legiones redde!“ (‘Quintilius Varus, give me back my legions!’)
What military disaster could so shake Rome?
After all, The deadliest military machine in the ancient world was the Roman legion. Armor & shield, gladius sword, bow, spear, giant catapults and crossbows, simple tactics– when it was ready to fight, it was like one great beast, inexorable, sometimes winning against odds of ten to one, or more.
Gladiator: The Roman War Machine At Work
However.. 35 000 Roman legionaries stretched out over a muddy 10 miles in marching order through the towering and crowding-in Germania’s Teutoburg forest? Under damp and misty September weather, and a threatening Fall storm? Not ready.
Legate Publius Quinctilius Varus heads up three veteran legions, XVII, XVIII and XIX– with newer auxilliaries alongside– deep along a forest track into Northern Germany, toward Winter fortifications. The Legate believes his forces so strong, why bother sending scouts out?…
Then, out of the mist, they came.
Countless lightly-armed German tribesmen, led by Arminius (Hermann), a Germanic Roman-educated officer, ambush both sides of the legion column at once, chopping the great army train into sections– and the killing begins. Roman blood and bodies fall everywhere. The Roman strength in prepared battle has been turned to weakness by careful ambush.
One legion somehow fortifies itself through the hellish night. The next morning, a desperate escape attempt– fails. The storm and rain make Legion bows useless, and their shields waterlogged. General Varus suicides on his sword. Archaeological remains tell the final tale– endless Roman remains and armour and all the cast down panoply of war.. mingled with relatively few fallen German tribesmen.
15000-20000 Romans die, the rest go down to slavery. The stream of regular reports to Augustus Caesar cease, there is only.. silence.
Everything Old Is New Again
We are like the Romans: proud, powerful, dangerous. Modern political Islam is like the Germanic warriors: fighting their war in their way, not ours. It’s like boxing with fog, or nailing down Jell-O.
Our politicians, police, and militaries have inadequate responses to this very old and faceless front-less Uh-What-Direction-Do-I-Shoot-Sir? form of paramilitary terror-warfare. For a while, we chased baddies around in the deserts and hills of Afghanistan and Iraq; now, America and her terrorist-allies are asploding Syria to hell and back. Is that it?
This is a new kind of ancient war: olden barbarian/ Medieval hit-and-run, but with our weapons & tactics & communications. Maximum results, minimal efforts. The Scots and Welsh employed a lot of these tactics against the invading English in the 13th and 14th centuries. This is what made William Wallace a great warrior, if not a great general of armies, or national leader. This is how the American Minutemen fought the British regular army. Keep it asymmetrical.
1st Generation War? That’s your Napoleonic-style line-up men and shoot– defeated by heavy artillery, and machine-guns.
Second gen? Fortifications, an orderly & organized artillery of all the things, then march in– which was wrecked by tanks and airplanes.
3rd Generation warfare? Germany’s WW2 Blitzkrieg: ignore the front lines, maneuver, and cut the enemy off– wrecked by?…
..4th gen warfare. Olden-tyme guerrilla tactics with modern technology and tactics and communications, non-state warfare, no ‘front lines’.
Wake Up!.. Coffee Is Smelly
Super-heroic tough-talker Canucki PM Justin Trudeau? A 2nd/ 3rd Generation war thinker: “A war is something that can be won by one side or the other and there is no path for ISIL to actually win against the West”…. They want to destabilize, they want to strike fear. They need to be stamped out.” [my emPHASis]
Hm. Good luck with that, dude. Really. This from a former part-time drama teacher.
America’s been trying Justin’s way since about 1963– before he was born, and placed in a manger– with little to show for it on five major occasions except corpses, frustration, and increasingly wealthy military-industrial complexes. PM Justin Trudeau, his advisors, and their equivalents in Western governments must unlearn what they think they know, or be doomed to an endless cycle of repeat and fail and weep. 4th Generation War is now here.. and everywhere.
Where We Actually Are
Truth be told, our huge force-against-force olden-style 1800s or 1900s warfare just doesn’t work very well when the other team refuses to show up, and won’t play by the old or accepted rules.. and when they vanish like morning dew if you try to force the matter. We’re still armed and organized to fight WW2, or the long-feared 1980s Soviet attack on Western Europe. That’s why terrorism is so very effective in 2016: our states actually need other states to fight with.. not an alphabet soup of terror-groups.
The front is everywhere possible and imaginable: nobody is safe, and all those radicalized mosques, and Muslim ghettos in our major cities are recruiting grounds and potentially hostile occupied territory, war-wise. Mass migration? Another facet of 4th gen warfare! Thus, the Euro-elite “Migrant Problem” is a self-imposed war, with collaborating leaders effectively attacking their own people.
Likewise the Islamofascist terrorism of all kinds, boundless cruelty, supreme confidence versus our cowardice and cringing. See? Atypical warfare, 2016-style– and we imported this: why do we continue to do so?
Leaders For The Fail!
Our elites? Clueless, pandering, state-worshipping nitwits who cannot see what is right in front of them, and keep trying things that can’t work– or which will enslave their own populations in “peace & security”. The Belgium attacks just don’t fit any of their politically correct categories.
Says Robert Spencer:
“It’s time for the governments of Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and more to fall….. The existing governments are responsible for policies that have turned Europe into a war zone, and that war is just beginning. The political and media elites have failed Europe and the free world, and put Europe on a course toward civil war and bloodshed unseen on the continent since the days of Hitler.”
Love them or hate them, their no-nonsense light rapid response, strict airline security, layered internal protection (including that infamous but fairly successful anti-bombing wall) are all defences against 4th generation warfare. It`s not perfect, but there is no perfect defence against guerrilla warfare.
Back Out, Canada
Should Canada keep dropping bombs & fighting in Afghanistan? No. Afghanistan is quickly reverting to what it was– a failed state ripe for terror, with mostly tribal law & order.
Likewise, our “helping” in the U.S. wrecking Syria in the puppet-theatre of American conquest for power and oil– sorry, ‘Arab Spring’– wasn’t stopping, preventing, or stopping DAESH/ ISIL/ ISIS, or local Viet Cong-type attacks. This is Jihad, and the end game our enslavement under Sharia Law: the whole thing, big-time. The Russians get it: the best answer on the terrorist’s own ground is not apologies or hand-wringing or submission, but BOOM.
The End Game: Submission Eurabia
The To-Do List Is Long
This is a religious terror war exploding all around us, and we’re currently caught like General Varus, or like the Americans in bombers and tanks eternally attacking phantoms in the Vietnamese jungles. Or Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria…
We need to Israel-up: walls, strict serious airport & airline security; everybody trained and willing & ready to fight; prison, deportation, de-gehettoization; subvert the subversion; use special ops and counter-infiltration, and especially of mosques and false-front groups. Local vigilance, and reportage; preparation for treachery from our own side. Protect our leaders and government locations– i.e., war everywhere, against everyone.
We need to harden ALL our critical infrastructure, and imagine (within reason) All The Things which are potential targets: internet & hackable infrastructure, the power grid, communications, military site, energy, water & food supplies, industry, transportation, statiums and large gathering places, all of it. In America and elsewhere, Muslim groups have already been nosing around water supplies and crucial power grid components directly, and via cyber-attacks. Halt all Muslim migration until we have a way to sort them out. Be willing to imprison potential terrorists.
We have a great deal to (re)learn, and a lot of blood and misery and mistakes ahead of us. Civilians will have to understand that they are the front-line, along with police and military and trained professionals. This war is not going to end quickly– and it is a war. There will be casualties, no matter how ready or prepared we are– and right now, we’re not very.
The Doom Is Strong
The alternative is not The Same Old Just Like Before, but ending up like Publius Quinctilius Varus and the lost legions of Rome– and like Augustus, wondering how and what had happened. Within 4 centuries, the barbarians were banging on the doors of Rome herself, as the Empire decomposed and fell into ever smaller pieces.
Us? We don’t have anything like that long, because they are already here, and more pouring in every day. The alarm clock is ringing: time to awaken from our pleasant dreams.
2016 Europe under siege is bursting with lessons for Europe, and North America: if we have the eyes and the will to see it. Our freedom, and all we have known and love and lived for and built, stands at risk. ~
~ IT VERY MUCH APPEARS that the Belgian airport bombers wanted radioactive material for a dirty bomb, or even (possibly) to cause a Chernobyl-style meltdown at a Belgian reactor complex only an hour’s drive South-East from Brussels.
Observant officials got suspicious, so the terrorists scattered, and ran with the airport plan, but it also looks like they had inside help at the nuclear plant. Police found the surveillance video of the nuclear plant on a raid of one of the terrorist’s flats.
Just For Example
It wouldn’t take much for terrorists to wreak untold havoc, say, in London – with just basic explosives and some nuclear waste. Such is the gruesome reality of the dirty bomb. It’s a non-nuclear bomb which invisibly spreads deadly radioactive particles over everything nearby, via wind and explosive forces. Says the BBC:
“It would wreak panic in built-up areas, see large areas contaminated and closed off and result in long-term illnesses such as cancer, caused by the dispersed radioactive material attacking living cells.”
Cancer and radiation poisoning are the longer-term (days and months) effects– shorter term, utter panic & chaos, people fleeing the region, refugee problems, looting, opportunistic violence and Jihad, overwhelmed emergency and medical services, local martial law, and contaminated parts of the city cordoned off for months, even years, until remediation and reconstruction could take place.
Multiply By.. 1000?
Of course, setting off an entire reactor into a nuclear melt down is a horror and disaster of Biblical proportions. Whole regions, thousands of square miles, could become unlivable, and radioactively quarantined for decades, like Chernobyl, or the exclusion zone around Fukushima. The wind currents of the atmosphere carry the fallout from there, all over the local regions, then around the world.
Just how many opportunities exist for such demonic mass-slaughter schemes by radicalized terrorists, for either dirty bombs or melt-downs? Wait for it.
There are 61 commercially operating nuclear power plants with 99 nuclear reactors in 30 states in the United States. Thirty-five of these plants have two or more reactors.
And many many many more all around the industrial world. Even worse, the internets is still innocently, carelessly, and naïvely full of immense amounts of potentially dangerous and revealing information about many such matters. I won’t link to any of it, but it’s all out there for the evil-minded and malevolent web-surfer.
And no, dear authorities, I’m not a terrorist. I’m trying to be one of the good guys in this war, mmmkay?
Time To Wake Up
In a mostly peaceful, old-fashioned warfare world, you can have nuclear plants for power generation all over the place, because the battlefront is usually far away. This is no longer that world. Welcome to the skin-crawlingly unpredictable world of asymmetrical guerrilla warfare, where no matter how evil or murderous or unthinkable your plan, you’ll do it for ‘the cause’.
Even this. And something nuclear-related almost took place in Belgium just last week, only if the authorities been less vigilant.
Get Busy, Folks
Let’s write to our elected officials, local and regional governments, and make sure that all our reactors around the world– big, small, research/ university, whatever– are all properly manned, supervised, securely protected, and kept safe from inside or exterior ideological threats, given just how horrible the alternative could be.
Also, consider being radiologically prepped (Google or YouTube search it), especially if you live near, or downwind of a nuclear plant. ~
