Sirens wail in the distance as closer ones take up the harmony. No one understands, is it a tornado, a hurricane, or are they heralding something in particular? The ground rumbles and there is a deafening roar drowning out the sirens. Now we know, it’s an earthquake alarm, but how did they know it was coming? The evening sky in the north and west together light up as if the sun did explode. Better we would be if it did as a fall of snow does drop from the clouds. What does all this mean, who can say, who would know, when will we find out what’s happening?
All too soon, the stench of death on the wind comes calling. New York City, Philadelphia & Washington DC are leveled. No longer do tall buildings rise above the clouds in New York, the Liberty Bell & Independence hall no longer exist in Philadelphia, and worst of all, our center of American Government has been wiped off the map. The President and all the fine buildings and monuments no longer exist.
Do we know what force accomplished this tragedy, this travesty of morality and what we know to be our past and future.
But no longer do we have a future, as the snow is radioactive, after each city did experience several of both ground and air bursts. Nuclear fall- out, a slow and agonizing way to die, will bring civilization in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and Maryland all to their respective ends. No more football, nor baseball, nor even beach fun at the shore. The air is a putrid pink and red, the color of blood, the color of death. A ten thousand year half-life for the nuclear matter from twenty missiles of destruction.
Was it the Russians, or the Chinese or even of late the North Koreans have become a nuclear power, could it have been them? Could the terrorists that destroyed the Twin Towers in New York City be responsible for this attack? Surely in the future we will know, surely we will retaliate for this unprovoked attack on our homeland…?
No retaliation will be forthcoming. All the countries mentioned have already offered their help, both financially and physically. They as well as the rest of the countries of the world are willing to do whatever it takes to assist us in our time of need.
For the bombing that took out these three cities of the east coast of the United States came from “friendly fire”. Yes, these missiles did not cross
any seas, they came directly from our own arsenal. Someone, it matters not whom now, pushed the wrong button, or threw the wrong switch and there was no way to recall this cataclysm. For they as well as the rest died when their own arsenal fired into the sky and/or exploded in their silos. The end of the Northeastern section of the United States came from a mistake, one so terrible that no one ever suspected it to occur.
That mistake being our own stockpiling of nuclear weapons,
Could it happen? You decide…
