The Perfect Day in the terrorist lexicon describes a series of simultaneous attacks on American schools.
I've seen that when people look in on these Beslan pages, they usually tend to spend a minute or so on each page. Yup, my blog stats tell me that. To me that suggests most readers are not paying the proper amount of attention to the issue.
What's the issue? Terrorists killing American school kids.
At other blogs you'll find a yearly tribute to the slain and that has a certain usefullness. But if the only "lesson learned" is that is that there are bad people out there and that we have to protect our kids, that's not a lesson ~ that's called an axiom. If the "lesson learned" is that when we give terrorists "respect" they'll leave us all alone, then that's not a lesson either ~ that's bullshit.
Here at this blog, I take an objective look at Beslan and suggest some very easily-done tasks you can and should undertake in order to protect your kids. Our kids.
Take the time to read carefully. Comment if you'd like, pass the link on if that suits you.
Anyway, where were we?
Intel gathered from interrogations of captured terrorists a/o physical evidence strongly suggests men and women with holy warrior inclinations will consider news of these school attacks to be a signal to kill the nearest unbeliever. For example, a driver down the street from you who happens to believe you're a kafir hears of the school attacks on the radio and so, in order to obey his "holy book", he drives into the crowd of people at the corner. Which, in this case, includes you.
Terrorists have publicly bragged that they have the right to kill 2 million American children. After several deadly attacks involving children in Russia, Osama bin Laden said he would inflict far worse death and destruction on America; presumably on children given the context of that particular remark.
Where do you find kids in bunches? Schools. Have you seen the video of terrorists training in building and room entry tactics and hostage control? It's a good depiction of their intentions and commitment, but you never hear the audio, do you? If you could crank up the volume, you'd hear them shouting control commands. In English.
School emergency plans have been found in the possession of people who have no need to know that information. Schools across the country have been under purposeful recon for quite a while. Terrorists are taking these, and other, preparation steps every day in America.
Some believe American law enforcement agencies are responsible for defending our schools and students. But courts have decided no police agency is required to protect you, the individual citizen, from any enemy foreign or domestic; their only mandate is to protect 'society' in general. So, if you call them to come save you from a criminal or terrorist act and they're late on scene, guess what; there's nothing you can do about it. You cannot sue them. Certainly, they will do their best to respond to any threat. But if they can't get to the schools fast enough or in sufficient force, a lot of people are SOL, in view of the generally sorry state of security preparation in most American schools.
In reality the first line of defense is parents, staff and faculty, coaches, students with formal a/o informal leadership roles, contracted or proprietary security officers. If the cops get there on time, that's a bonus. Bottom line, it's up to you to protect yourself and those you love. So, it's important to have a good plan in place to make sure Murphy and his kin don't show up.
According to the plan, if/when that day comes, attacks will be perpetrated simultaneously at several schools across the country, probably all in the same time zone. The schools will probably not be in large cities where police SWAT can get there in a hurry but in towns where terrain, distance, and manpower issues create significant police response lag time. On the other hand, they might pull it off in a large city by creating a diversion to draw police tactical assets away from the attack site. Either way, terrorists will show up out of nowhere at grade schools where the kids, especially the boys, are too small to resist.
Following their Beslan model, they will come in hard and fast and loud and violent, probably herding everyone to the gymnasium or cafeteria, or multiple areas in the building. They will be trying to frighten everyone into complete, instant obedience. If they find males big enough to fight back, those men and boys will be summarily executed, perhaps in front of the rest of the students and staff. These murders will be committed while terrorists are hurrying people into the building, or once they have everyone under control there. Anytime after that; once they're sure they have control of their hostages and the perimeter, girls will be repeatedly raped and sodomized in front of everyone. Older girls and women might be taken to separate rooms and raped and sodomized there. Boys might be sodomized, too. Anyone who resists will be killed on the spot.
Sorry if this shakes you, but this is what they did to innocent boys and girls, men and women in Beslan. And, maybe you need shaking.
Explosives will be emplaced and charged to destroy the building. Terrorists will cover a/o booby-trap every door and window, preventing entry and exit. Nobody gets in and nobody gets out.
Will they negotiate? Who knows? If terrorists don't kill anyone in the take-over, there could be a slight chance their intentions are to negotiate for something. But if there is killing right away, and there probably will be, it's a pretty good bet their intention is to kill as many of the students and staff as they can.
With these attacks, terrorists hope to create a horrible revulsion here that will stir Americans to strike back against anyone who may follow Islam. When "moderate" Muslims all over the world see their co-religionists attacked by marauding Yankee infidels, it is believed the "radical "ranks will swell immediately. From this wildfire they hope will reemerge The Twelfth Imam who will lead Islam back to power and, under Muslim law and rule, the world will finally know justice and peace.
Alrightythen. Any questions?
To translate the double-speak of many Muslim secular and religious leaders, this ascension back to running the world will come only after 'terrible and unprecedented calamities, when persecution and injustice engulf the earth'. They want to kill our kids to push us to the point that we lash out violently in retribution. Then they can shout 'American persecution and injustice has engulfed the earth' and POOF... The Twelfth Imam pops out of the bottle.
I had a previous post viz Beslan. Maybe you should refresh your memory on that massacre if you think it can't happen here. If 19 men can plan and carry out 9-11, another group can pull this caper. They only have to be lucky once. Some believe political leaders are obliged to protect us from this potential horror. If that's true, then why did no government employee get fired for mistakes they made which permitted 9-11?
Yes, it is the right of parents of school children to petition various government agencies for help in enhancing the security profile of the school their child attends. But it is not the duty of any politician to get money for any particular school. So, where does that obligation reside?
In your living room.
Okay, who wants to be unerschrocken now?
Time for you to read the rest of the Perfect Day posts, even if you read them before:
