21,000 IF BY LAND, BUT WHAT IF BY AIR?
Our nation's intelligence sources predict that this weekend and likely for days - possibly weeks - to follow there will be armed and likely violent pro-Trump agitators converging upon every state capitol building in the country in protest of the outcome of the Presidential election, which Trump lost to Joe Biden.
It does not help my jitters that I happen to live in one of the cities, Columbus, Ohio, wherein is located one of the soon-to-be-besieged state capitols.
The Ohio State Capitol
But here's what worries me: what if the domestic terrorists, along with attacks on the ground, are planning air attacks?
Who's to say that a small private plane - or an army of small private planes - couldn't fly over the U.S. Capitol or over state capitol buildings and drop home made bombs or incendiary devices on the buildings or the people protecting the buildings? Who's to say they couldn't fly low and strafe the guard troops and police officers? Who's to even say there might not be some unhinged holy-war-zealots out there who might be planning to fly a plane into a building?
What I want to know is, with all the thought and preparation that's gone into defense strategy against land attacks, has anyone planned defense against air attacks?
"Oh, I'm sure they've planned for air attacks," said my spouse Tom.
"But have they?" I said. "I haven't read or heard of any plans in case of air attacks."
"Don't worry, they're ready," said Tom.
"I'm going to send an email to the FBI, just in case they haven't thought of an air attack," said I.
"Don't send the FBI and email," said Tom. "They might show up at the front door."
"Maybe I'd like for them to show up at the front door so I could make sure they've thought about an air attack."
Anyway, I ended up not sending an email to the FBI. But I did send one to Governor Dewine the other day warning him to be prepared for a possible air attack by Pro-Trump protesters. The Governor hasn't responded to my email. Which is fine. I just hope he saw it. And then passed it on to the FBI.
