Hey, all ... this was from a post over in the wtcdisaster community ... which ultimately came from "The Daily Dirt", which, while being festooned with porn ads, has some really biting commentary ...
I am a re-activated Navy Captain (O-6). My telephone rang at 0600 on Tuesday morning (PDT). I was ordered to report to one of the Boeing assembly facilities north of Seattle. A helicopter was waiting for me. My specialty is the Middle East, order of battle, mission planning and target identification. Within thirty minutes I was in front of the Admiral, a representative from the NSA and the State Department. I have spent the last 48 hours looking at in-sat data and picking targets.
Nothing can change what has happened, people. And it goes without saying that this is hardly the forum or immediate audience for sharing specific details, nor would I ever be permitted to do so. Your site is a place of relative entertainment for me, but your other patrons should know (for whatever it's worth) that we have selected more than 300 targets located in more than six countries. The Admiral informed us at the first briefing that, for the first time in over 30 years: "the gloves come off." My contention is that anyone asinine enough to kick at the biggest dog in the neighborhood should damn well be prepared to get bitten.
On the way back from the Naval Air Station, I saw the typical Volvo station wagon with a sticker on the back window that said "Imagine World Peace". I hope you and your gentle readers are prepared for me and my Navy's version for the back of your pick-up truck. "Imagine Smoking Holes in the Ground".
We're on this. God Bless you all.
Yikes! That's "more than 300 targets located in more than six countries" ... fasten your seat belts!
