When asteroid Armageddon is upon us, we can't just call Bruce Willis. Meet the people who really do watch the skies – and make detailed plans for our survival.

The city has had 60 days to prepare. Museums have been emptied of exhibits, nearby nuclear power stations shut down and fleets of buses requisitioned. Inhabitants of America’s most populous urban area need to be rehoused. The matter-of-fact briefing notes for the evacuation state: “People will be leaving permanently. There will be nothing remaining.”

I've taken much crap for pushing this paradigm, or whatever it is, since it fell together for me when I was trying to rationalize the human propensity for war. What I came upon, the night Bush Sr. bombed Baghdad for what was to be a 'destroy the Middle East' project of the GOP in the name of making the dying Texas oil wells more profitable (the Bush family was heavily invested there)

was the long run fact that we had to take command of the local celestial traffic, something we've known since the scribes of the ancients coined the distant, angry God returning theory and made it stick, however the metaphor was bent out of shape by those inclined to accept the more colorful interpretations of the Prophets, most of whom in retrospect seem to have been the first astronomers, "certain shepherd, watching their flocks by night" etc.

My mother's favorite Christmas carol was "The First Noel", where they refer to a star in the East that shone both day and night. Hmm. So it's a mix-up; but certainly there'd be no dealing with the threat without our history of mayhem and the resultant war toys devised in the process. One might say the worst of our behavior created a future for Earth beyond Armageddon. Or not. I do. Here's more proof that our "Star Force" is an extension of the well-founded fear that without us, Earth has a "sell by date", and our work is cut out for us. And if we fail (we won't) everything else is moot.
