Should I be alarmed?
Last week I saw a military B52 fly over my house in North Dallas. Since then I've seen numerous black helicopters and military type convoys passing through town on I30? It's probably nothing, but I still find it amazing that in 2004 I was listening to a NPR segment with Andrei Codrescu as he humoursly explained how the military was doing a "mock" invasion on New Orleans because they said New Orleans was the most "foreign" designed city in the U.S. Of course, this was 1 year before the Katrina hurricane where the National Guard was sent in to police the city. It really seemed odd to me at the time that within a year of a military "urban drill," the practice would be put to good use.
Today it's hard to find much written about the "mock" invasion Codrescu spoke about in 2004. I found an Indie Media post which talks about it, other than this it's been forgotten, or worse, hidden.
And so when I see the military flying over my city and driving through town, I do have to fear that there is something up. I mean, I live blocks away from the Ebola outbreaks last year -- which happens to be the same area where the first sexually transmitted Zika virus was found in the US.
No, surely they're not...
Maybe I should be alarmed.
