Goofy Agonistes

There's this Disney cartoon from the 40s I remember. All about spreading panic. Goofy, I think, was involved. People whispering in each others ears conjuring visions of famine, skeletons, and death -- the visions getting worse as the rumors spread from ear to ear.

OK, I don't want to do that. But I have an intuition, a very strong one, and I want to pass it on. FBI doesn't accept email, goddamnit, so I'm passing it on here...

I think the current alert for this weekend is disinformation. I think the next punch to America's groin is set for Oct. 22.

I had a hunch Sept. 11 was significant, symbolic date. Then I heard on the radio -- NPR I think -- that Sept. 11, was an anniversary of some date connected with the 1917 Balfour declaration which set process in motion ultimately leading to creation of Israel. So I started digging for other dates. What I found on some historical database...

"Shortly after midday on Saturday, October 6, 1973, Egypt and Syria launched a concerted military attack against Israel. They had chosen to attack on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, a day when most Israelis were in synagogues praying and fasting.

On October 22, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 338 calling for 'all parties to the present fighting to cease all firing and terminate all military activity immediately.' The vote came on the day that Israeli forces cut off and isolated the Egyptian Third Army and were in a position to destroy it."

That's it. Oct 22 -- date of Arab's disgraceful defeat in the 1973 war.

Heads up.
