Very sobering article for your consideration.
There are some skeptics out there and this skepticism is reasonable and healthy, however, many respected commentators such as Michelle Malkin are on this one. At the least, the scenario is too damn plausible for comfort, and absent proof otherwise, the thinking person will maintain his situational awareness in the presence of conditions such as depicted.
Perhaps I'm jingoistic, or perhaps I should invoke the 48 hour rule (where things that make the rounds on the blogosphere or the net in general should wait such time before being commented upon, to verify its truthfulness), but as any reader of Tom Clancy or Frederick Forsyth can tell you sometimes even in fiction there is an astonishing amount of truth and facts. I know that I was bitten by the French flake story, but the truthfulness of the climate in France that made that one plausible still stands.
Please read and keep yourselves informed.
