Well, boys, I reckon this is it — nuclear combat toe to toe with the Rooskies

There's been a lot of chatter on the Internets the past week or so regarding concerns over a possible false flag terror attack on Friday the 14th. This is an apparent hoax, according to a story by Steve Watson over at There may be a standdown tomorrow but that doesn't mean we're totally unprotected.

Of course the crux of this concern has to do with an Air Force Times story that addresses a recent B52 flight from Minot, ND to Bossier City, La. where the aircraft was unwittingly toting some 'hot' baggage - nuclear cruise missiles. This story has been flying all over the place and a lot of misinformation has been put out there including the idea that of the six missiles loaded onto the bomber, only five arrived to it's final destination at Barksdale Air Force Base. And then there are the rumors that missing aviator Steve Fossett is part of this story and that his Amelia Earhart-like disappearance is a cover story to divert attention from the Air Force's search for the missing sixth nuke. It's just too much of a stretch. Or is it?

So, what are we to believe? Well, sure these sorts of mistakes don't just happen in the Air Force. But that doesn't necessarily mean that we must jump to the conclusion that a false-flag terror event is being planned so the crazed neocons can obliterate Iran.

One hopes that there are enough patriotic Americans to thwart an unnecessary attack on Iran, which would undoubtedly lead to full-fledged World War III. And we in the truth community must be wary of pervasive hoaxes being passed off as the real deal. It only hurts the movement and gives our enemies more ammunition to attack our growing movement.

So, before signing off, I thought I'd leave you with this amusing quote from one of my favorite films ...

"Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff."
