Nuke Mecca

A fun read. Enjoy!



Has U.S. threatened
to vaporize Mecca?
Intelligence expert says nuke option is reason bin Laden has been quiet

------------------------------------------------------------
Posted: January 7, 2005
1:00 a.m. Eastern



? 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

Why hasn't Osama bin Laden's terror network executed an attack on U.S. soil since 9-11?

Simple, says Dr. Jack Wheeler, creator of an acclaimed intelligence website dubbed "the oasis for rational conservatives": The U.S. has threatened to nuke the Muslim holy city of Mecca should the terror leader strike America again.

On his website, To the Point, Wheeler explains how the Bush administration has identified the potential of wiping Mecca off the map as bin Laden's ultimate point of vulnerability ? the Damoclean Sword hanging over his head.

Israel ? recognizes that the Aswan Dam is Egypt's Damoclean Sword," writes Wheeler. "There is no possibility whatever of Egypt's winning a war with Israel, for if Aswan is blown, all of inhabited Egypt is under 20 feet of water. Once the Israelis made this clear to the Egyptians, the possibility of any future Egyptian attack on Israel like that of 1948, 1967, and 1972 is gone."

Wheeler says talk of bin Laden's Damoclean Sword has infiltrated the Beltway.

Writes Wheeler in his members-only column: "There has been a rumor floating in the Washington ether for some time now that George Bush has figured out what Sword of Damocles is suspended over Osama bin Laden's head. It's whispered among Capitol Hill staffers on the intel and armed services committees; White House NSC (National Security Council) members clam up tight if you begin to hint at it; and State Department neo-cons love to give their liberal counterparts cardiac arrhythmia by elliptically conversing about it in their presence.

"The whispers and hints and ellipses are getting louder now because the rumor explains the inexplicable: Why hasn't there been a repeat of 9-11? How can it be that after this unimaginable tragedy and Osama's constant threats of another, we have gone over three years without a single terrorist attack on American soil?"

Available only to subscribers of To the Point, Wheeler ends his column by explaining the effectiveness of the Mecca threat.

"Completely obliterating the terrorists' holiest of holies, rendering what is for them the world's most sacred spot a radioactive hole in the ground is retribution of biblical proportions ? and those are the only proportions that will do the job.

"Osama would have laughed off such a threat, given his view that Americans are wussies who cut and run after a few losses, such as Lebanon in 1983 and Somalia in 1993. Part of Bush's rationale for invading Afghanistan and Iraq ? obviously never expressed publicly ? was to convince Osama that his threat to nuke Mecca was real. Osama hates America just as much as ever, but he is laughing no more."

Wheeler says bin Laden is "playing poker with a Texas cowboy holding the nuclear aces," so there's nothing al-Qaida could do that could come remotely close to risking obliterating Mecca.

Writes Wheeler: "So far, Osama has decided not to see if GW is bluffing. Smart move."

I highly doubt this article. If we nuked Mecca for something Osama bin-Laden, who is not officially offiliated with Saudi Arabia, we would be killing more than a million innocent people. We would become enemies of every single Muslim in the world for nuking their holy city.
There are other reasons why we haven't been attacked by "terrorists" (see: CIA operatives) in the past 3 years.

If this actually happened, the repercussions of the US's actions would be far worse than anything they had seen before. It'd make the WTC attack seem like child's play, and create millions of new terrorists.

Arrogance will be the downfall of this country unless people stop thinking that killing innocents will solve all our problems.

I agree. We shouldn't kill anyone based on what they believe.

Nuking Mecca would be a God-send for OBL since he would garner alot of world wide support. If the US nuked Mecca, much of the world would feel whatever terrorist attacks occur in the US would be well deserved. 9-11 would go down in history as a blazing moment of resistance against a Modern day Roman Empire.

The purpose of a threat like this is analogous to the "Mutually Assured Destruction" of the cold War. Noone WANTED to launch the first missile because they knew that they would be destroyed. With the Arab leaders knowing that if they let OBL set up camp in their country and he perpetrates a huge attack on the USA, that their entire government will be obliterated within a day of the attack and that mecca would be turned into a sticky mess of gooey glass at the same time, they have incentive.

I think it's a bad idea, nuking people is pretty evil. But the threat of it probobly works, and many of those guys would be dumb enough to believe it.

9/11 was needed to justify Bush and Company's Project for The New American Century. We haven't had any more "terrorist" attacks on US soil because they do not need it yet.

Get your head out of the sand. Sinai, Beslan, Madrid, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, Tanzania, Bali, those were all hoaxes?
