- Gen. Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit
with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution
will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government. Franks,
who successfully led the U.S. military operation to liberate Iraq, expressed
his worries in an extensive interview he gave to the men's lifestyle magazine
- In the magazine's December edition, the former commander
of the military's Central Command warned that if terrorists succeeded in
using a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. or one of our
allies, it would likely have catastrophic consequences for our cherished
republican form of government.
- Discussing the hypothetical dangers posed to the U.S.
in the wake of Sept. 11, Franks said that "the worst thing that could
happen" is if terrorists acquire and then use a biological, chemical
or nuclear weapon that inflicts heavy casualties.
- If that happens, Franks said, "... the Western world,
the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty
we've seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that
we call democracy."
- Franks then offered "in a practical sense"
what he thinks would happen in the aftermath of such an attack.
- "It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction
and a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western
world - it may be in the United States of America - that causes our population
to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country
in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event. Which
in fact, then begins to unravel the fabric of our Constitution. Two steps,
very, very important."
- Franks didn't speculate about how soon such an event
might take place.
- Already, critics of the U.S. Patriot Act, rushed through
Congress in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, have argued that the law
aims to curtail civil liberties and sets a dangerous precedent.
- But Franks' scenario goes much further. He is the first
high-ranking official to openly speculate that the Constitution could be
scrapped in favor of a military form of government.
- The usually camera-shy Franks retired from U.S. Central
Command, known in Pentagon lingo as CentCom, in August 2003, after serving
nearly four decades in the Army.
- Franks earned three Purple Hearts for combat wounds and
three Bronze Stars for valor. Known as a "soldier's general,"
Franks made his mark as a top commander during the U.S.'s successful Operation
Desert Storm, which liberated Kuwait in 1991. He was in charge of CentCom
when Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda attacked the United States on Sept. 11.
- Franks said that within hours of the attacks, he was
given orders to prepare to root out the Taliban in Afghanistan and to capture

- OK, the game is up. Franks would NEVER say something
like this extemporaneously. This is a warning...a trial balloon...a softening-up
of the American public for MARTIAL LAW. EXPECT an attack which will be
called a 'WMD terror attack' against America...and then goodbye civil rights,
goodbye due legal process and get ready for Guantanamos all over the US...to
find those 'terrorists.' There will be mass roundups of people who criticize
the government and our 'free press' will wither quickly.
- And REMEMBER THIS: we will NEVER know for sure who was
behind this coming WMD attack. Wonder if we'll see more Mossad agents jumping
for joy and videotaping the event when it happens...
- From Jerry L. Gardner
- Hi Jeff,
- Comments on Gen Franks very distressing in your face
revelations. When we begin to hear these truths from the inner circle,
it's time to be afraid, very afraid.
- I personally believe John McIntosh's comments are right
on target concerning the imminent plans of the politico elite. I have feared
this same sequence of events for sometime now, especially since 9/11. This
illusionary enemy Al Quida (sp), is synonymous with saying "they did
it," the old nameless "They" thing. An enemy we cannot identify,
yet provides the excuses needed for global conflict and the rise of the
One World Order, how convenient.
- I seriously believe a major event designed to instill
the fear of God into America will soon take place, and I believe it will
be of a major magnitude. This could be the coup de grace that places George
Bush exactly where he wants to be, that as America's first dictator. He
has already stated that a dictator would be okay as long as he was the
dictator. Power still corrupts and absolute power still corrupts absolutely.
A major WMD event would just about seal George Bush as the next president
and with martial law initiated the wildest dreams of the power hungry would
instantly be realized. It is no longer God bless America, it is now God
help America, the emerging "Beast."
- If American's think the powers behind these very drastic
and permanent changes to our nation would hesitate murdering perhaps many
thousands of our own people, they are more deceived than I even thought.
Any nation that can slaughter men, women and especially children and boast
about it is evil beyond evil, even satanically motivated. It is really
a shame that only a very few like John McIntosh can see the horror quickly
developing in America by it's leaders. I believe I'll totally lose it when
just a few months down the road, after the deification strikes the centrifugal
blades (when the s--- hits the fan), when some brain dead dork comes up
to me and ask "what happened?" America has had enough warnings
of what is to come that even an idiot who is totally biblically and politically
challenged should be able to see the light. Antichrist stands at the door,
fools, many calling themselves church members are unlocking it for him.
- It is truly sad to watch helplessly as the nation we
love so dearly is destroyed by the very people we intrusted to protect
her. It is painfully apparent how Roman citizens must have felt while watching
her worthless fatcat politicians destroy Rome from within from greed, avarice,
and an insatiable hunger for power over their fellow man. I am angry at
these gangsters taking my country under the false and created guise of
terrorism (the fear approach) but I cannot fight the "Beast."
Who can make war against her? The dividing of the sheep and goats is upon
us, we will be forced to choose whom we will serve, God or Satan's regime.
- Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.

From Archaeos Prime - Renegade Patriot
- Hi, Jeff,
- This certainly is a frightening article, because it has
confirmed my worst fears from many months ago. All along I have believed
that the best possible time for the Bush Reich to arrange a WMD attack
on U.S. citizens would be within the last couple of months before the presidential
election, ESPECIALLY if the polls show Bush lagging.
- We might have some breathing room if the polls favor
him and he wins the election, but then after his 8 year term comes near
its end, or we attempt to impeach him earlier, this same frightening scenario
will again be terrifyingly possible.
