First Protect Yourself and your Family:
-----You cannot help your Family if You aren't Safe!
----------You cannot help your Country if You and your Family aren't Safe!

---A)_ Plan for a Safe Room 
The biggest threat from BW agents are from those dispersed in the air which create an inhalation hazard (although other ways of infection are possible, such as through food or contact). 

Find a "space"
You should take the time now to determine what are the best rooms or places to stay, that preferably have no windows and that with some clear packaging tape or duct tape could be sealed off from outside air relatively quickly.

You can use large plastic sheets of clear polyethylene to help better seal off doors and windows and hallways.

Dry Runs would be a good use of You and your Family's Time!


Duct Tape is your Friend
Don't run out of it!


Find an Inside Room or Space
An expedient way for sealing off the gap between the underside of a door and the floor is to use a damp towel along the base of the door. 

You should also consider having a bathroom in this “safe area” if at all possible. 

If the crisis lasts for an extended period, then a sleeping area is also needed. 
 

Hepa Filter System
To insure a Safe Air supply, Special Filtration equipment will be needed. 

To insure against leaks allowing BW products in, it is important to have a greater air pressure inside than outside. 

It is imperative to have a Ventilation and Filtering system; lighting, electrical receptacles. Also it would be desirable to also have telephone, TV and radio reception. 
A backup power supply can be made with outside solar panels and rechargeable batteries.

Biological:-
1)_ U.S. Postal Service: 
Kill Bio-hazards sent through the mails using ionizing radiation, such as X-ray or Gamma Ray sources.  The Technology would be similar to that used for irradiating food to kill microorganisms. X-ray machines, electron accelerators, would be the preferred radiation sources. 
However, QUICK & DIRTY methods could use gamma ray sources such as cobalt-60 and cesium-137.

Update Irradiation urged to protect mail
---------Microwaves don't Work
 

..
Aircraft-
..
1)_ Isolated Cockpit:
outside entrance only. 
New construction & retrofits.
   
2)_  Closed Circuit Television:
air crew can observe passenger sections, including lavatories.
   
3)_  Arm pilots:
reinforce cockpit hull (self sealing) for stray rounds.
   
4)_ Black Box: 
use telemetry as remote real-time back up to black boxes; include cockpit & cabin video. 
Two Entrances
5)_ No Direct Flights:
to reduce fuel-on-board, use only connecting flights.
 
6)_ Intrusion Prevention:
use TCAS (Traffic Alert And Collision Avoidance System) to detect and prevent aircraft intrusion in to Protected Airspace. A system that would use the intruding aircraft's Autopilot to steer it out of such airspace. 
..
Airport-
<--data<--5' 8"  175 lbs  mag = 0.03
7)_ Airport checkin: 
use networked supercomputers for X-ray interpretation, facial image recognition, and other sensor(s) interpretation.
8)_ Prescreen passes: if prescreening passes are used, include and measure body weight, and height of the individual as a "quantifiable metric."
Biometrics
Remote heart rate, and Breathing Rate Monitoring
Among the criteria used to determine threat potiential of individuals going through inspection prior to boarding an aircraft, it would be desirable to know their emotional state. This can be determined to a useful degree, if certain biometric parameters could be measured, i.e., heart rate, breathing rate, etc.

One method for determining heart rate and breathing rate is microwave interferometry (sometimes referred to as "Doppler"). Microwave interferometry uses a very low intensity millimeter wave pulsed microwave transceiver, which has the effect of making a remote, real-time, measurement of said heart and breathing rates.  More Info

Lie Detection using Infrared
Scientists have developed an instant lie detector technique which picks up mini hot flushes around the eyes and could lead to truth tests becoming standard at airport check-ins, the journal Nature reported today.   More Info

..
Nuclear:-
Camouflage Nuclear Plants
Flying a large aircraft, at high speed, into a low altitude nuclear power reactor building is difficult to begin with, adding camouflage could make it nearly impossible.
An example of the effectiveness of inexpensive camouflage is Lockheed's World War II factory in Burbank. The plant was hidden by sheets of painted fabric supported by telephone poles that spread over the plant.

Public:-
1)_ Video Surveillance: 
Install, and Upgrade existing low resolution CCTV (Closed Circuit TV) systems, with Extra High Resolution CCTV equipment. 
Click image to Enlarge
Extended Resolution Imaging System
    a).. Cheap Upgrade:
In existing CCTV surveillance systems it is possible to increase resolution from 2 times standard resolution, to 16 times, utilzing the Extended Resolution Imaging System(ERI). 

In normal operation the the Modified CCTV system displays and records images in Std. RS-170/Rs-170A, which allows it to be recorded on a standard VCR.

Resolution Multiplication can be X2, X3, X4 in both H & V. The "high resolution" images are recovered using a specialized software package running on a PC, e.g., any "n" sequential images (fields or frames) can reproduce a single Hi Res image of X "n" resolution increase.

We had better act decisively soon, or it may be too late for America.

If we "play by the rules"--acting only Defensively, never going on the Offense--we may regret it--the survivors that is.

Iraq surly has a surprise or two for America, just waiting in the wings, to spring on us when we least expect it. 

Considering the damage thus far accrued from the Attack of September 11, by just 19 people, using 4 airliners that took >5,000 lives, not to mention the hit to the economy: what then would be the damage to the nation if a weapon(s) of mass destruction (WMD) were unleashed.

Instead of finding out for ourselves, let us hope and pray that our leaders, Mr. Bush et al., move against Iraq (and any other state of like intentions) preemptively!   --Soon!
 

With our national preoccupation of "not wanting to harm 'innocent people,'" how about the use of a few strategically placed EMP[1] weapons against Iraq, the Taliban, et al. 

Without killing a single person, an EMP weapon could take Saddam Hussein's war making capacity back to the Stone Age: it would destroy all or most high tech weapons and electronic equipment and disable most communications, and impact most power distribution system in that country. And, not a single person would die, and few, if any, would be injured.
 

If we are the World's Preeminent Super Power that is claimed, why then do we chose to do battle with our enemies using 'third world' weapons and tactics? 

We have super weapons, some even humane, but we continue to use iron bombs, high explosives, and M-16s against people, who if given the chance/weapons, would Annihilate us from the face of the earth without a second thought.
 

The kind of decisiveness that saved this nation during the Second World War, is what will save us this time around. Nothing less will do!

[1] EMP: ElectroMagnetic Pulse    What is EMP?- -


A Scenario to Chill your Soul:

The Allies win a series of battles in Afghanistan against the Taliban, and al Qaeda seems to be on its way out. 

We Americans are jubilant, and are full of patriotic pride--deservedly so!

Saturday evening, your TV watching is interrupted, and all networks carry the same News Special:
"There has been an attack on the Nation's Capital."

"At 8:12 P.M. EST, a brilliant fireball was seen over Washington, DC."

"It is believed that there has been a NUCLEAR ATTACK on the Nation's Capital. All contact with Washington and the surrounding area has been lost."

"There is no word from the White House as to the condition or the whereabouts of the President of the United States, or the Vice President."

Time passes and the News Anchors are at a loss to know what has happened or what is happening--lots of speculation, but NO FACTS.

Finally, after an hour, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, Paul Wolfowitz, comes on radio and television from the UK, with the news that the Government of the United States has been Attacked by an unknown enemy.  He says that it is believed that the President, Vice President, and the Cabinet are all DEAD. He further states that "there seems no way the Congress could have survived this Nuclear Attack."

The rest will be HISTORY--or NOT.
