Security Experts, Immigrants Fear Nationalization

Deepwater Horizon sinking speculated as attack by N.Korea

A drilling platform far out in the Gulf of Mexico is boarded
by armed men who arrived in a mini-sub.

Because it's so far from land and its workers so occupied
with work on the drilling floor, they are quickly captured,
the huge structure compromised by the men in the ninja
suits, men armed with fully automatic weapons, limpet mines,
flash-bang grenades and enough plastic explosives to knock
the rig whomper-jawed and inoperable for months to come,
perhaps to sink it.

Their demands, if there are any, are completely non-
negotiable. They aren't there to make sense. They're there
to disrupt and destroy.

An outpost on a lonely stretch of pipeline snaking across
high desert country suddenly explodes, halting
transportation of crude to a distant refinery or
transshipment point hundreds of miles distant.

A refinery vaporizes, belching flames and boiling
petrochemicals that leaves its steel structures twisted and
smoking, the fire burning out of control for days after.

A small squadron of power boats loaded with explosives slams
into the side of a fleet of supertankers in a narrow passage
of water such as the Houston Ship Channel, New York Harbor,
San Francisco's Golden Gate or the Straits of Hormuz,
leaving the sea lane impassable.

A freighter launches a modified SCUD missile over a
petrochemical complex on the eastern seaboard. Its payload
- a device that emits a burst of electromagnetic energy that
disrupts all computer operations, communications, even the
traffic lights and refrigeration systems of supermarkets and
food warehouses, leaves a city writhing helplessly, its
industrial base disrupted, distribution systems inoperable,
the population helpless, without food, water, or essential
medical services.

What are the implications for national economies, securities
markets, transportation systems?

Utter devastation.

Consider white papers prepared by such organizations as The
Rand Corporation in support of studies done for the
government and major petroleum producers and refiners.

All these scenarios come from just such a study done in 1988
by the Rand Corporation, authored by Brian Michael Jenkins
and inserted in the Air and Seaport Defence and Security
Handbook for 1989.

Charles Goslin, vice president of international operations
for Duos Technologies, Inc., a veteran operations officer
with 27 years experience working for CIA, penned a similar
white paper in 2008 for his firm. It outlines what Duos can
do about each of these scenarios. They use electronic
barriers, pan and tilt video surveillance, sophisticated
alarms and pressure switches along the routes of pipelines,
wire mesh guards underneath drilling platforms that extend
hundreds of feet below the surface, and radar target alarms.

Sabotage and terrorism ranges from something as simple as
vandalism by a disgruntled employee to concerted efforts by
a hostile nation to disrupt the nation's petroleum drilling,
transport and refinement, whether it is taking place in
Eurasian oil fields, in Iraq or Iran, Arabia or Kuwait, the
Gulf of Mexico, or the South China Sea.

It's nothing new. There is a chronology dating back to way
before World War Two, the mid-fifties when Nasser sank ships
in the Suez Canal, and the sixties when Col. Muammar
Quadaffi first began to nationalize American oil fields in

In fact, the switch from coal to bunker oil by the world's
navies touched off the conflict prior to World War One when
Winston Churchill sent T.E. Lawrence, author of "Seven
Pillars of Wisdom" and "Lawrence of Arabia" fame, to
organize Bedouin tribesmen on the Arabian Peninsula into
Kingdoms, Principalities and Emirates in order to resist the
German sponsorship of the Turks who were on a similar
mission in pursuit of petroleum.

The object of present day terrorists and guerillas: to use
America's petroleum as a weapon against her own people,
disrupt her economy and set her world in blazes.

Speculation about the fate of the well that blew out and
sank Transocean's Deepwater Horizon on an offshore British
Petroleum property 50 miles outside of Venice, Louisiana,
are more than idle chat.

There are people who study these things.

The most popular idea goes like this and you can find it all
over the internet, espoused by everyone from Rush Limbaugh
to deep thinkers for the national defense establishment.

A mini-submarine of North Korean origin was launched from a
merchant ship crewed by elite black ops troops, according to
the story. Instead of heading for Venezuela when the ship
left the port at Havana, it made way for the Deepwater
Horizon, a rig built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South
Korea, which was drilling 50 miles offshore near Venice,

After firing two torpedos at the well, buckling its drill
stem that extended a mile below the surface of the water
where a Halliburton's crew was busy cementing the side walls
of the hole to keep it from collapsing, the blowout
occurred, sending the vessel to Davy Jones's locker.

Though the drilling company, BP and Halliburton all three
did pressure tests, the natural gas, mud and petroleum sent
pieces of 21-inch casing cascading out of the hole like so
many soda straws.

An act of war?

It's plausible. After all, the two nations of North and
South Korea have never signed a treaty of peace. There is
merely a cessation of hostilities between the two.

This means the disaster, all the ecological damage, loss of
life and property, is the result of an act of war if the
allegation can be proven up in international courts.

No one walks away bankrupt.

If it takes a nuclear blast to plug the hole, then everyone
in the world gets to keep nukes handy for just such an

What's more, like the terrorist attacks on 9/11, the attack
uses the precious petrolueum is used as a weapon against its
true owners, the people of the U.S.

Says who?

Russian intelligence reports circulating inside the Kremlin
at this time.

Misinformation? Disinformation?

It sends little chills down the spine, to say the least.

One thing for sure, it's got to be way too much of a
coincidence that all this happened on Earth Day, 2010, just
as Cap and Trade is entering negotiations in the Senate, the
U.N. Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty is on the table, and a
liberal President and Congress are flexing their muscles and
baring their claws over weighty issues such as health care,
energy policy and getting the troops out of foreign oil
fields where they guard the infrastructure for American
corporations, foreign governments and to keep a balance of
power between Arabs and the state of Israel.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media is preoccupied with
everything but the true causes and origins of the trouble.
We see lots of pictures of dead birds, dolphins and sea
otters, but few pictures of the actual damage at the
wellhead, other than the futility of efforts by BP to stem
and divert the runaway flow of the massive spill.

We intend to ask Col. David McIntyre about all this at a
Burleson TEA Party Forum to be held on Sunday afternoon, the
23rd, in that city at Rustic Creek Ranch, 2301 S. Burleson

He is a West Point graduate with 30 years experience in the
Army, teaching national security at Texas A&M and the
National War College, he is making a presentation along with
former Green Beret Bert Hernandez, general manager of Bird-
Kultgen Ford of Waco and Vice President of Hispanic
Republican Club of McLennan County.

Mr. Hernandez's family left Mexico and came to America where
many of them have become naturalized while other family
members are still waiting for Uncle Sam to open up the

They will be joined by Professor Juan A. Baldor, a former
Cuban refugee whose family sought asylum in this nation in
1962. He is Chairman of the Spanish Department at Dallas
Baptist University. Dr. Irma Aguirre, a former Cuban
refugee and a family practioner who came to College Station
Medical Center from Houston, will round out the list of

"I have advised our speakers to be extremely frank with the
audience, as I feel an informed American is more able and
prepared at what quite possibly will hit them very soon,"
said Ms. Cox.

Many people who have lived under totalitarian regimes fear
the sight of ninja-suited SWAT teams boarding the oil
platforms offshore. They have seen it all before -
nationalization of private business, medical facilities,
transportation and communications infrastructure.

There is a $5 donation to help pay for the hire of the
meeting space.
