Conspiracy theories are usually spread after something bad happens, to explain why it happened when the official explanation seems to be lacking.
But right now, the Internet is swirling with reports of a different nature:
That the U.S. government may be planning an "exercise" involving a nuclear attack on Portland, OR -- and that, more critically, this may become a "false flag" attack, where the very thing being studied as a part of the exercise, actually happens because it is the last thing that people expect to actually happen.
Naturally, those Portland residents who have heard about this plan are keeping a close eye out for any additional information they can find. What is known is that the operation is planned for August 20-24th. Though the military insists that the exercise will only involve computer simulations, this story is unlikely.
According to Captain Eric H. May, Special Military Correspondent, on July 20, 2007, Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, said: "Whether authentic or orchestrated, an attack will activate Bush's new executive orders [NSPD-51], which create a dictatorial police state in event of national emergency."
So, why not dispense with Portland, which the Bushes have always hated (Bush Senior called it "Little Beirut" after meeting rather virulent protesters there during the first Gulf War), and receive an opportunity to declare martial law and turn a stolen presidency into a dictatorship? It's a two-fer!!
I'll keep this post short, so let me just conclude with this:
This plan will only succeed if we go along with it.
So don't go down easy. Call in to every radio and T.V. show that allows callers; write to your local newspaper; post a blog; repeat. Don't rally in the streets, protests can be used as an excuse to declare martial law. Use phone trees if you need to, but get the word out.
Communication and information dissemination is the only way to prevent this, and the information obviously needs to spread further and wider than just within the Portland region -- so make sure it gets to your friends and relatives in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris and London, too.
And if this month comes and goes and Portland is still on the map (and in one piece), we will have succeeded, for now. God, I do hope this all is just a computer exercise and all of the rest of this is just conspiracy theory... but given the recent track record of the Amerikkkan government, I just can't be so sure anymore.
