“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is holding a workshop in Fayetteville to teach local law enforcement agencies how to handle roadside bombs,” reports the Associated Press.
No, not in Iraq. But here, in America.
Okay, it is getting ridiculous out here. Apparently, endless and bogus terror threats issued since September 11, 2001, are not enough. Now cops are to be filled with absurd ideas about terrorists planting IEDs alongside our highways and streets. But then we are told in all seriousness blond hair and blue eye al-Qaeda terrorists are a reality here in America and it is only a matter of time before they strike in the name of Osama bin Laden and his demented cave dwelling terrorists. Such things are sincerely cartoonish and no doubt most Americans do not take it seriously, no matter the talking heads on Faux News cranking up the hype on an almost daily basis.
The department’s Office of Bombing Prevention will host Tuesday’s workshop. Police, sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement agents will learn how to identify the bombs and how to protect against them.
Roadside bombs are the leading killer of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although no roadside bomb attacks have been reported in the U.S., experts say they could be a future threat.
In a way, we have already had a prominently hyped roadside bomb attack, in a fashion. It happened in Times Square when a crude bomb went off in the middle of the night at a military recruiting center. Geraldo told the nation it was the work of “anarchists” who are “more like those ‘9/11 was an inside job’ kind of guys.”
Maybe Homeland Security knows something we don’t. Maybe they are preparing the cops for the inevitability of an Iraqi styled “insurgency” here in America. After all, the Pentagon is paying Lockheed Martin $1.3 million to develop an “Integrated Crises Early Warning System” to detect “rebellions, insurgencies, ethnic/religious violence, civil war, and major economic crises,” according to Wired. And then there is a “secret report, suppressed by US defense chiefs and obtained by The Observer,” warning that “disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life” in the near future and “once again, warfare would define human life.”
So I guess the Department and the Pentagon are ahead of the curve. Or, more likely, they are attempting to rile up the cops and further brainwash them to believe the American people are the enemy. The absurd prospect of IEDs planted by blond hair and blue eye terrorists helps along this polarization agenda.
