Imagining The Unimaginable – Red Dawn

ITU-01 Red Dawn

For as long as I could remember when I think of the United States being attacked one of the attackers in my mind has been china. Meaning their government not the people in general and  I make this distinction because sometime what the government does and what the country’s people want are two different things. Remember I am Imagining the unimaginable and I had a Red Dawn type of dream.

Imagine if you will your sitting relaxed in your chair watching late night TV. You hear a noise out side and the dog ears perk up. you hit mute on the TV to get a better listen and the ruckus out side is getting closer and closer to your house. You get to your feet head to the door and right as you reach for the door knob the door bust open and a man in military uniform crashes through the door. You don’t understand what they are saying as the language is not English. More men come through the door guns in hand they are screaming at you, demanding you comply and still you have no idea what they are saying. one man looks at the barking dog and pulls the trigger and with one yelp the dog falls silent. you start to fight and you see the man point the gun at you and everything goes black, You are dead.

So what happened? Well the story goes that the Chinese government trained the vast supply of men to use personal long distance jet packs with stealth technology so they would not be detected and they fly into smaller cities and into the housing communities. They Land and storm the homes in the middle of the night and kill the occupants no matter the age or gender. They do this in groups and move through the streets in swift and deliberate action. Time is limited and the more damage that can be done the better.

The sun rises and the damage is done. Here’s why this in my mind is effective if possible in the future. Our military is made to look outward for attacks and then head out and do their thing. what they are not equipped to do if fight the enemy in our backyards. Imagine the military in a matter of moments would have to understand whats happening in all the small towns and mobilize in a fashion to attack the enemy in a residential area with Americans running scared and the enemy fighting killing citizens as they run for help.

This is so unimaginable that its hard to believe it could happen. but I believe in time the technology is there and the ability to do it is there the question remains would an enemy do it and would we be prepared for it. That I can’t answer but remember this is just me Imagining the unimaginable.

Imagining The Unimaginable

911 Photo

After 911 congress put together a commission to figure out how to stop this type of attack from happening again. The commission published if findings after a long review and in the findings it was stated and I am paraphrasing here “What we have to be able to do is Imagine the unimaginable.” and that stuck with me and I pondered that long and hard and I think they were exactly right we must be able to imagine the unimaginable. So I have decided to create a category just for my imagination. My thoughts on what could or may happen in the future if we don’t take to hart that there are people that would see us dead all of us. So read if you will but my Imagination can be some kind of a wild ride.

Jaguars vs Tim Tebow – I mean Denver Broncos

Well its finally here the first regular season game and I am glad it’s here. I am ready to watch the Jags take down one team at a time and head to the playoffs.

Its great that we are doing well in the ticket department and the talk of moving the Jags are stored back in the corner where they belong.

I like what was done in the off season to try and get this team ready for the playoffs.

I am not however looking forward to a bunch of Florida Gator fans ranting and raving about a player who should not even play in the game. but some how maybe the Denver Broncos may have to run his rookie behind out there so the Gator fans can cheer on there pet boy.

You know if the Gator fans show us anything its not always about the team it about one man and how good he is. I understand that Tim has talent and played very well in collage ball but let not tout him as anything more the a talented rookie playing on a pro football team.

I hope on Sunday i can go and enjoy the game and watch the Jaguar Team play the Denver Broncos Team and see who the best TEAM is not watch some  Tim Tebow rookie side show act. my tickets cost to much money for the kind of crap.

Go Jags

Remembering 911- Where were you

Do you remember where you were on September 11, 2001?

I was at work getting ready to head out for my daily service calls. Someone had heard on the radio that a plan had crashed into one of the Twin towers so we gathered in the conference room and turned on a small TV. We watched as the reporters talked about the tragedy that had just happened and the loss of life. We were talking in jest about how blind could the pilot be not to see both them big ass buildings. But not long after that as we stood there watching the fire and smoke we saw the second air liner slam into the seconded tower. We saw it in full color and in detail and we were in shock. I and another workmate knew right away this was bad and not an accident and express that much. But some others we dazed and in shock and didn’t know what to think. We started talking about this being an attack and the dazed folks just shook their heads in disbelief and we tried to talk them into seeing what they were seeing. Then a third plane was reported to have hit the pentagon and everybody was now on the same page. We are under attack and the weapons are planes.

I remember speeding down the road looking toward the skies trying to get home. We sat in front of the TV just watching the twin towers burn. We were Listing to reporters tell us that it was confirmed that we were under attack. The President grounded all Air line traffic and put a standing order to shoot down any plane that did not comply.  My eyes were glued to the TV but my ears listened for any sounds that sounded like an airplane engine. We lived near a military airport so when we heard something we ran out to look. At one point we saw about 20 fighter jets screaming through the sky. Yet another sight that’s seems so unreal that it instilled a since of fear.

Watching the TV huddled in our home we listened to the reporters tell of the hundreds of people stuck in the towers and how the brave firefighters gave everything they had to help them.  The sounds of sirens, people screaming and this thunking noise a noise I could not figure out. Until a reporter that was talking stopped and was crying because with each thunk she knew it was a body of a person that decided that jumping from the burning building was better the burning alive. Thunk and thunk and each one pounded in my chest and raised my anger lever more and more. I wanted to walk away but found I could not pull away from what I was seeing.

It seemed at one point that things were starting to come to order, plans were in affect people had direction and evacuation were starting to take some shape then without warning the towers started to crumble. Floor after floor collapsed on top of each other destroying anything between them. People started to run, the streets filled with people running away from the loud crashing noise that is, was the Twin towers.

It was not enough for the terrorist to take the Twin towers and the people in it. but the affect of the towers coming created a cloud of death and destruction as it chased people down the streets of New York, around corners, down streets and filled it with debris from the buildings trying to take as many people with them as it could.

Then there was silence for a brief moment the TV was quite the room was quite shock was on our faces. Then slowly you cold hear strange beeping noises. The beeping noises started to fill the air and people started to move again it was like watching a ghost town come to life. People struggling to understand what just happened, were they ok, they could not see from the thick cloud of dust. Cries for help in the darken city streets started to surface and then panic ensued again.

The day ended but I felt like nothing I have ever felt before. I could not sleep well that night as my ears listened for anything strange. My eyes searched for danger and my soul ached for everybody that died that day.

Please leave a comment on where you were that day and how it impacted you.

To Burn or not to Burn

Burning-book-001

As of this writing the Pastor Terry Jones has suspended the burning of the Qur’an based on an agreement that the imam will move the location of the new mosque

OK so lets start here.

There is one man a Imam that wants to build a Mosque near ground zero. Americas voice there opposition to what he wants to do and we are told that we need to be more open minded and tolerant and to do otherwise is UN-American. So we are UN-American because we are offended by what this Imam is doing. The Imam has every right to build there as there is no law that can stop him. They bought the property and they have the right to build on it. But just because you can does not mean you should.

There is one man a preacher who wants to burn some Qur’an in protest to what he says is a book of evil. We are told that this act of intolerance is UN-American and will cause harm to Americans both home and abroad. Now this preacher has every right to burn the Qur’an under Freedom of Speech and there is no law that can stop him. But just because you can does not mean you should.

Both men have an agenda, both men have a right to do what they are doing. What’s telling about this is how each side handles the thing that is offending them.

So offending Americans with a Mosque near ground zero is ok but offending Muslims by burning a Qur’an is not.

WHY?

Easy Americans are a tolerant Nation and allows for all points of view and it provided by law. But can the same be said about Muslims? How tolerant are they?

Remember its one man not the United States that is burning the Qur’an and if the mere threat of burning the Qur’an can provoke another country to burn American flags and calls for death to christens and infidels. Seems like a very intolerant nation, country or people to me.

Americans see the preacher for what he is an idiot trying to prove a point and get famous I am sure. If not for the media attention nobody would have known about the burning let alone third world country’s. He could have had his little burning and the world would move on as if nothing had happened. But nope the media made sure everybody knew about this even the President of the United States. So who really is to blame here, but i will save that’s for another post.

How is this being handled by both sides?

Well Americans may not like the Mosque being built and there would be protest and threats by a few radicals but they would for the most part use the Law to stop it from being built if possible.

Muslims well they protest and make threats but they also call as a country not a radical group of people for the death of Americans over burning a book which they have done in their country many, many time over in which we are asked to be understanding about.

So in my opinion this does not fall on the shoulders of the Imam in New York and it does not fall on the shoulders of the preacher in Gainesville they are both doing what they are allowed to do by law in this country. It falls on the shoulders of the Muslim people to be understanding and tolerant of all points of view because to follow the course of action laid out by the Muslims leaders is to prove the preacher point. You legitimize what he is saying about the teaching of the Qur’an. You need to rise above it and let it go just as we Americans are asked to do every time we have been offended by what Muslims radicals have done to us.

I hope that the Preacher does not go through with his protest as i don’t want to see any Americans hurt. But i fear that no matter what he does or says the Muslim radicals run the show. they run their people and are coming close to running the United States with the fear and the threat of death.
