Today, March 26, 2011, the stage was set for emergency responders in Iowa to practice what to do in the event of an act of terrorism. It is good to be prepared, so it makes sense to run drills. It is just who the government views as being potential terrorists that made my blood run cold. It seems that if you are a) a young white male, 2) unhappy with the government's total failure to enforce the laws of this country and assert our right to exist as a sovereign nation, 3) are involved in a sport involving firearms (such as the biathlon), and as such are "enthusiastic" - the government views you as a potential terrorist threat.
|Janet Napolitano is protecting us from terror attacks by the US biathlon team - see those smiles? They look pretty enthusiastic to me...|
Here is a page from the script which our emergency responders are using to deal with our thorny Olympic team, and others just like them.

...situation, have found no strong evidence to take action or make an arrest. Similar occurrences have happened in other schools and public places over the past 6 months throughout the region.
Suspect Background: Susp1: Timothy Jasper. White male, 18 year old high school senior. Lives in isolated rural area in Treynor School District. Little is known of the family, not originally from the area.
The suspect participates in no school activities, relatively low to mediocre grades and attendance. Has been disciplined for fights at school, threats to staff and students as well as being known to law enforcement.
The student has been seen with anti-immigration demonstrators and community rumors indicate a violent, quick-tempered father with ties to an underground white supremacy group that was involved in a small demonstration and assault 30 days ago in another community. ...
The family is known to be firearm enthusiasts, if not fanatics. Suspect 1 has access to a significant cache of firearms, ammunition and materials suitable to make improvised explosive devices.
Susp2: John Jackson. White male, 17 year old high school junior. Isolated, quiet personality at school. No social interaction with students in or out of the school setting. Has often been the victim of hazing and bullying his entire school career.
He has participated in school athletics with little achievement often riding the bench, which has also contributed to continual hazing and a diminishing self-worth. This student has befriended Suspect 1 within the past year. His attitude has began to migrate from quiet meekness to antisocial aggressiveness with changes in appearance, hair style and clothing style that mimics that of his new friend and quasi-protector.
Scenario: It is a seemingly typical Friday morning. Students have arrived at school in Treynor and the initial morning activities and classes have been completed. It is approximately 10:00 a.m. and the current period has let out. Students and staff floods into the hallways and common areas of the high school.
Suspect 1 approaches a small group of minorities in the northeast corner of the cafeteria. Suspect 1 begins blurting racial slurs and that he is tired of them moving in and stealing jobs and money from Americans.
As the altercation is about to become physical and is noticed by a staff member, Suspect 1 pulls a handgun from his waistband, shooting one of the minority students. As chaos ensues, suspect 2 yells “the Revolution begins” and pulls out a weapon himself.
The suspects begin firing upon anyone in their path and chasing down anyone who is against their ill-perceived stand as they make good on their unanswered written word.
I don't care what your political bent is. If you don't think this is an attack on the American people by our government, you are brain dead.
PS. I apologize to the US Biathlon team for putting their smiling, happy faces in a blog post about terrorism. Furthermore, I have no idea what their views are on illegal aliens who violate our borders, or our governments refusal to enforce the laws of this country. I am taking a leap of faith that they fall into the category of the 70% or so of Americans who expect the Federal government to do its job.
