04-09-2006 14:01

Travelling north on the A34 around 1pm, huge tailbacks in traffic were caused by

04-09-2006 13:43

Travelling north on the A34 around 1pm, huge tailbacks in traffic were caused by a nuclear convoy carrying upspecified material, resulting in the closing off of a slow-moving lane of the carriageway over about 0.5 miles heading north. At least 6 nuclear police traffic cars (SUV) were accompanying the green nuclear truck, which resembled a fire-engine type vehicle conspicuously marked with nuclear warning labels. A coachload of civilians and a further civilian SUV was also entrapped within the convoy cordon. In a further sign of the times, loaded tank transports and a variety of military vehicles were seen at the same time heading southwards on the A34 around Compton. Shame our goverment is all war war war, and a load of bullshit jaw jaw jaw. Can't wait to celebrate the fall of Blair!

Operation Apocalypse End-Timers & End-Game Strategy

03-09-2006 16:53

The idea of Armageddon is gaining traction in every part of our global war media, which now treats World War Three as a foregone conclusion. The nation prepares for the genocide and suicide of world war, and the media cheer-leads to doom like a Jonestown Cult. Operation Apocalypse has begun all right — and there’s no doubt in my military mind about it.
