In the last month we have learned that Dick Cheney was eager to urge an
Israeli attack on Iran to provoke an Iranian counterattack on Israel,
and thereby take the United States into another Middle Eastern war. In
the last week we have learned that declassified NSA transcripts prove
conclusively that the US government lied to us for 40 years to cover up
the truth of Israel's premeditated attempt to sink the USS Liberty and
kill its crew during their Six-Day War. Friday we saw George W. Bush insisting
on TV that his government would never dream of committing torture -- even
as reports were surfacing to prove that the lie he was telling had been
a lie since he began telling us three years ago. Who knows what tomorrow
will bring, since by now we know that the Bush administration is capable
A Past Prologue: From 9/11 to Noble Resolve
"... Some choose to view this exercise as sinister -- a pretext for
a nuclear attack by the U.S. military on American citizens, according
to some fevered speculation..."
is good, not grand -- Editorial, The Oregonian, Aug. 10, 2007
9/11/01 didn't just happen out of the blue. It was set up by simultaneous
military exercises under the control of Cheney, who was in the bunker
before any New York or Washington attacks, giving orders to various strategic
commands. Accordingly, the United States was stripped of its air cover
by design, allowing airliners to penetrate America's most impenetrable
air space to attack New York and Washington, DC.
Likewise, the 7/7/05 London bombings were pre-planned. Around 1000 local
police and national agents were supplemented by private contractors as
they simulated terrorist bombings on the city's transportation system
-- on the very day the attack occurred. Official fingerprints were all
over the London bombings, which happened on the exact vehicles, in the
exact places and at the exact times designated for the exercise scenario.
After 9/11 a supercharged Bush administration declared North America a
military zone under Northern Command (Northcom), and established the Homeland
Security Agency (Homeseca) to nationalize police powers. In the years
since, Northcom and Homeseca have been filled with Bush loyalists and
true believers, and they regularly conduct terror drills to practice what
they would do in case of catastrophic terrorism -- like what happened
on 9/11 in the United States and 7/7 in the United Kingdom.
In August, national military and police forces carried out the terror
drill Noble Resolve, focused on Portland as the simulated target of a
10-kiloton nuclear device. Investigating journalists found that top officials
zigged and zagged in reply to straight questions about what they were
going to do, were doing or had done. Various military commands offered
varying explanations, and sometimes outright contradictions, as to the
nature of the exercise. Portland Mayor Tom Potter claimed ignorance, and
accordingly he ignored it all. A few days before the exercise, the US
House Homeland Security Committee formally requested access to the troubling
dictatorship directive, NSPD 51, just announced by Bush in May and reputed
to have been connected with Noble Resolve. In reply, a few days later
they were formally told to go fly a kite by the White House. The Portland
media remained mum throughout the exercise -- except for a few stories
attacking those with questions as conspiracy theorists and left-wing lunatics.
A Present Possibility: TOPOFF and Vigilant Shield
"It's hard to know what's scarier: the idea of responding to a terrorist
attack in Portland or the idea that the government is using a drill as
a pretext to seize power, declare martial law and, possibly, attack Iran."
shades of unthinkable -- Editorial, The Oregonian, Oct. 2, 2007 (Link

In a little over a week, the largest terror drill in US history will focus
on Portland again. TOPOFF, Oct. 15-19, is designed give "Top Officials"
a chance to react to a catastrophic scenario -- a "dirty nuke"
terror attack uncomfortably similar to the Noble Resolve nuke attack of
two months ago.
The Bush administration will be running more than one exercise -- just
as it did on 9/11. Joining TOPOFF will be Vigilant Shield, which intelligence
insiders believe will practice the dictatorship directive, NSPD 51. The
name "Vigilant Shield" brings to mind "Vigilant Guardian,"
the 9/11/2001 Air Force exercise that pulled away fighter aircraft supposed
to guard mainland America and sent them off to counter a simulated Russian
attack in Alaska. Vigilant Guardian may also have been simulating hijacked
aircraft, thereby confusing the few remaining fighter aircraft guarding
us. Given that Vigilant Guardian was anything but a vigilant guardian
on the day of the last US terror attack, just how reassured should we
feel by the feel-good name of Vigilant Shield?
The twin exercises TOPOFF and Vigilant Shield will mobilize as many as
20,000 federal, state, local and tribal officials. The nuclear attack
envisioned for Portland is also slated for Guam and Phoenix.
Future Fait Accompli? The Judeo-Christian Jihad
"We should remember that Iran, like Iraq, is a third-world nation
without a significant military. Nothing in history hints that she is likely
to invade a neighboring country, let alone do anything to America or Israel.
I am concerned, however, that a contrived... incident may occur to gain
popular support for an attack on Iran."
Ron Paul to the US House of Representatives, Jan. 11, 2007
Public confidence in our ruling elites is at an all-time low. Only 30%
of the people approve of the Bush administration, and fewer than that
approve of Congress. Fewer still believe what they see, hear and read
from the mainstream media, and they are turning to the Internet, which
is becoming the printing press of our Second American Revolution. Were
there another "coincidental" occurrence of a terror strike during
the upcoming TOPOFF / Vigilant Shield terror exercises, it would solve
a slew of problems for the worst government in US history.
If the politicians and presstitutes could convince an increasingly skeptical
public that Al Qaeda, and not "Al CIA-duh," was behind the attack,
then it would undercut the antiwar and anti-government movement now coalescing
behind outsider presidential candidate Ron Paul. Congressman Paul already
ranks equal to the other Republican hopefuls in likelihood to gain his
party's presidential nomination, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers, and
his nomination would be an existential threat to Bush's neocon cabal.
A President Paul might take action to back up his stated views that 9/11
needs to be genuinely investigated, that the post-9/11 police state needs
to be rolled back, and that a military-industrial-media complex bent on
Middle Eastern adventurism needs to be straightened out.
At least one foreign government would also be pleased if the United States
were re-energized by a follow-up 9/11 attack: Israel. Official rumors
abound worldwide that the Bush administration has promised its pro-Israel
power base, made up of both Jewish and Christian Zionists, an attack on
Iran. Journalist Seymour Hersh has been writing and speaking about the
prospective attack, and the Jewish journalist isn't shy about saying that
the Jewish Lobby is pushing for for all its worth to get us into an Iran
war. When the Iranian president visited the United Nations earlier this
month, the hue and cry against him had little to do with American issues,
and a great deal to do with Jewish issues of defending the Holocaust and
Israel. The Israeli bellicosity toward Iran -- carried out through their
American proxy -- made for interesting reading in a Ha'aretz article on
May 18: "Poll:
71% of Israelis want U.S. to strike Iran if talks fail."
Last month the Bush administration sent loose nukes into motion across
America, locked and loaded onto B-52s -- then tried to tell anyone still
paying attention to the mainstream media that the loose nukes had been
a bush league slip-up. A few days later, the Department of Energy announced
that it was gathering up loose nuclear material with the press release
"Department of Energy
Announces Decision to Consolidate Surplus Plutonium in South Carolina."
That consolidation is on going now, just before the TOPOFF / Vigilant
Guardian terror drills involving dirty nukes begin. DOE specifies that
it will be taking the radioactive stuff from Oregon's West Coast neighbors,
California and Washington. That means that the dirty nuke material necessary
to take the Portland nuclear scenario from plot to production may just
be passing through their city during the terror drills.
A free people should always be anxious when the worst-case scenario for
them just happens to be the best-case scenario for their rulers, especially
when that scenario is being set up before their eyes.
