The Second Side

I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

Yeah, But What If It's True?

An Idaho weatherman has left his job to pursue his theory that Hurricane Katrina was artificially generated by the Japanese Mafia—using an electromagnetic generator—to take revenge for the Hiroshima bombing.
This dovetails with Louis Farrakhan's claim that the New Orleans levees were deliberately blown open to "destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry."
Sounds nutty, right? Here's the sticky wicket, though: What if it's all true?
We can't sit here and pretend that humanity's treatment of the black race is something to be proud of, nor can we pretend that governments the world over haven't invested considerable time and expense trying to manipulate the weather. Why else would Bill Clinton's Secretary of Defense, William Cohen, have said the following in 1997:
Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter
the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of
electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are
at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's
real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why
this is so important.
This reminds me of something they used to tell us in church. The Devil's greatest advantage, they told us, is that no one believes in him. Imagine if you had developed technology that could manipulate the weather. The average layman couldn't even begin to understand it, nor would anyone consider it possible—a built-in alibi. The perfect cover.
Suppose you wanted to blow a levee and exacerbate hurricane damage to such a degree that the President of the United States would appear on television and say this:
It is now clear that a challenge on this scale requires greater federal
authority and a broader role for the armed forces.

Think about it, you could wreak havoc on people you deem undesirable. You'd get the President to call for a greater domestic role for the U.S. military and everyone would be happy about it. And most importantly, no one would ever suspect a thing, because they don't want to.
I'm not necessarily endorsing these theories, merely pointing out that blind disbelief to the possibility gives perfect cover to those who might want to do so.

Well I guess then that means that Omen IV makes much more sense. Yeah, they didn't believe that the little girl was evil. But now we know, don't we. It was all a warning about the Japanese weather machines.

"Why no, Mr. Bond, the world will never believe that we can control the weather." (cue sound of Satan laughing)

Kinda like Hitchhiker's were the President's only real function is to divert attention. Or something like that. Adams said it better, I'm sure.
