HOUSTON, 3/8/2011 -- I apologize
to my readers for being dense (with links) in this analysis,
but the topic demands details. I shall quote from each crucial
article, hoping thereby to entice those who have time to read
more, and suffice those who don't.
years ago I accepted the 9/11 myth without reservation, and
tried to reactivate my commission to join what I then believed
was a just war against Iraq. Like most patriotic veterans, I
was blinded by love for my country, which I had served in the
70s, 80s and 90s as a member of the Army, Army Reserve and National
I wasn't blind to the vulnerability of my home town, Houston,
though. On 6/22/1997 I had been blown out of bed by a huge explosion
at Shell Chemical in nearby Deer Park. On 9/11/2001 I had been
teaching high school a mile away from the Houston Ship Channel,
pathway of the city's petrochemical industry. Add to these experiences
my noncom background in the Chemical Corps and I was well-qualified
to write a terror target analysis of the Bayou City for my editorial
buddies at the Houston Chronicle. "Don't
laugh at duct tape; it saves lives" http://www.ghosttroop.net/ducttape.htm
is one of my favorite essays, since it offers all the right
answers for all the wrong reasons:
"When I was a general staff officer
we routinely envisioned worst-case scenarios to test our preparedness.
Let’s use one for ourselves: Early one morning there
is a massive explosion in the chemical district along our
ship channel. ... Lethal gases, similar to the ones released
in the catastrophe of Bhopal, India, erupt into the atmosphere.
An early morning inversion temperature gradient – our
climatic norm – keeps the toxic cloud on the ground,
while gentle southeasterly breezes – again, our norm
– blow it northwest inside Loop 610, where our population
is most dense." -- 2/23/2003
years to the day after my Chronicle op-ed, its scenario
received unsettling support, as described in "Citgo
fined for 2009 Corpus Christi blast, fire"
"Citgo Petroleum Corp was fined $303,294
for a July 2009 explosion and fire at its 163,000 barrel per
day (bpd) Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery that injured one
worker and nearly spread toxic hydrogen fluoride over Corpus
Christi." -- 2/23/2011
still was a story the next day by Public Integrity and ABC,
of Toxic Acid Puts Millions at Risk" http://www.publicintegrity.org/articles/entry/2935/.
It shouted a Doomsday warning to BP, Texas City, on the Houston
"Some worst-case scenarios described
in company filings with the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency are particularly chilling: An HF (hydrogen fluoride)
release from the BP refinery in Texas City, for example, could
total 800,000 pounds, travel 25 miles and put 550,000 people
at risk of serious injury, according to BP’s own calculations,
provided to the EPA."
same day a disaster accentuated the danger that causes residents
to nickname their town TOXIC CITY. "‘Worst
case’ in Texas City gas leak is tens of thousands of gallons"
"Work crews continued their efforts
to recover gasoline that spilled from a ruptured pipeline
in Texas City early Thursday, forcing the evacuation of about
15 homes and the closure of Texas 146." -- 2/24/2011
next day Veterans Today published my article about
BP's false flag collaboration with neighboring NASA on 7/28/2005.
False Flag Space Shuttle" http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/02/25/eric-may-the-false-flag-space-shuttle/
quickly went worldwide, with over 10,000 postings from Europe
to the Mideast to China:
"At dusk began the most awesome spectacle
imaginable: An expanding cloud of energy rose up like some
nuclear phoenix, growing to a height of 45 miles, and a width
of more than 100 miles. These measurements are not guesses:
In my first Army enlistment, I was trained by the Chemical
Corps to compile and evaluate such data. The article title
is not hyped: "BP
7/28 Nuke Plan vs. U.S. Officers Coup" http://tinyurl.com/28hfk3p."
Greed Goes Green
all the negative news one might suppose that Big Oil, BP in
particular, would be duckling and covering to avoid the wraith
of the feds. In the surreality of the nation's petrochemical
industry, though, bad news is good news, and cause for celebration.
A handful of headlines will prove my point:
the bizarre post-9/11 world, bad is good and worst is best.
Consequently we shouldn't be surprised that, at a time when
the mainstream media declares us to be heading for a chemical
catastrophe, Big Oil is celebrating. Nor should we be surprised
if oil industry incidents are really arsons, not accidents.
Its what Naomi Klein described as "disaster capitalism",
and it goes back as far as Nero's burning of Rome.
it to my boss at The Lone Star Iconoclast, renowned
Texas publisher W. Leon Smith, to explain the energy equation
in a three-year-old editorial that could -- and should -- be
published today. "Time to Investigate Houston Is Now"
"Every time there is a disaster or 'mistake'
involving the petrochemical industry, gasoline prices shoot
up. And, daily, the federal government assures the American
public that gasoline prices are going to continue to rise.
In fact, recent official predictions suggest $4-a-gallon gasoline
this summer. Thus lies the basis for governmental predictions
of continued disasters and, ultimately, of an impending new
9/11. They say it's not if, but when." -- 3/3/2008
