Last nights show gave us a lot to consider. We lost the telephone connection half way though the show and we had no way of getting back in touch with him, as he refused resolutely to give us a telephone number or any way of contacting him. Your intrepid host and crew at the Garden of Truth broadcast soldiered on nonetheless. We hoped our guest would call back, but he has yet to. The second half of the show, which ran well into its sixth hour before we knew it, I took the opportunity to read some of the more crucial documents our guest had provided before the broadcast. As I like to do, I read the documents through without comment and I'll start an initial dissection of the information revealed in tonights show.
I'm wondering about the significance of event that happened in the greater world in 1979. I'm not positing a theory, consider this a short note, a list of coincidental actions and observed phenomena that is by no means complete.
In no particular order of importance or chronological sequence:
The creation of the First Earth Battalion, an alleged US army project to create our own version of "Warrior Monks". One of their soldiers is later called back into service in Iraq.
The energy crisis is the first of many events to get us innured to out of control inflation as a constant fact of life. OPEC showes exactly how easily they can bring down our very civilization.
The existance of the Rapid Deployment Forces (RDF) becomes known. The RDF was a mobile fighting force capable of responding to worldwide trouble spots, without drawing on forces committed to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The RDF was the forerunner of CENTCOM. Our increasing use of mercenaries may have roots there.
Iraqi President Hasan al-Bakr resigns and Vice President Saddam Hussein replaces him. The CIA may have had a hand in, while manipulating the Iran Hostage crisis, (444 days. Work it out.)
Raymond Washington, known for founding the Crips, today one of the largest, most notorious gangs in the United States, is shot and killed five months following his arrest for quadruple murder. (His killers have not yet been identified.)
Cheap cocaine starts flooding the streets of America, production and importation of heroin is ramped up significantly.
A breakthrough in trans-dimensional travel with the successful test of a dimensional travel device, though it seems, this one was not developed around these parts. More threads of double agents and infiltration and counter-infiltration that ensue will need a show of its own.
The Soviet Union seizes control of Afghanistan, and Babrak Karmal replaces overthrown and executed President Hafizullah Amin.
Sandinistas seizes power in Nicaragua, leading to the initiation of yet another covert CIA operation. Two major sources for drugs are the focus of covert operations promted by so-called conservative officials.
Look into 33 year cycles in history.
I'm going to get the spade and shears.
Tonights show is all about mythical beasts. Tune in, and you will find it's a more timely topic than you may think at first. I'll also talk with entomologist Palak Haupt about bee radar and crowd control.
