Re: Fwd: ENOLA backwards is ALONE
I glanced at these posts of the same name this morning, not thinking anything of it UNTIL a bit later, and then it it hit me really hard. This man represented a most rigid human composition imaginable, although admitedly, that are many more of his kind circulating among us on this beautiful earthly dwelling of ours.
His passing occured likely through the night of Halloween, being itself a highly venerated festive time for Black Occultists.
The coupling of these two events my soul terrorized throughout most of the day. These events are not just fictitious accounts, they actually did occured, and they have likely 'rung in' as it were, invigorated calamitousoccult forces straight into our collective soul environment, in a formative manner, occuring even onto this day.
This double event may likely invoke more serious reprecussion as well...
Anyways, if anyone has any doubt about the hardened nature of this now deceased individual, I offer a few quotes from the articles already presented.
Has anyone pondered on the supersensible caracter of this event? C.
"I'm not proud that I killed 80,000 people, but I'm proud that I was able to start with nothing, plan it and have it work as perfectly as it did," he said in a 1975 interview.
"You've got to take stock and assess the situation at that time. We were at war. ... You use anything at your disposal."
"After the war he called Hiroshima and Nagasaki "good virgin targets" (they had been virtually untouched by pre-atomic air raids) and ideal for "bomb damage studies."
"...But that was not in the Tibbets-approved original script for the film. It was added later, presumably to show that the men who dropped the bomb recognized the tragic nature of their mission.
Tibbets criticized the scene when the film came out...."
