Could A New Terror Threat Dwarf 9-11?
Former-Missile Engineer Reveals Grave Vulnerability
It would start simultaneously at four locations on the San Andreas Fault plus one each onthe Puente Hills Thrust Fault (which runs under the skyscrapers of downtown LosAngeles) and the Hayward Fault in the San Francisco Bay area. Powerful explosionsdeep underground would send super-heated, ultra-high pressure steam coursing throughthe faults. Simultaneously flames would shoot from the ground at numerous locationsand Santa Anna winds would carry the conflagration across California, resulting in deathand disaster that would eclipse the 9-11-01 tragedy. But earthquakes are naturally occurring events and what about the flames shooting fromnewly opened fissuresis this Armageddon? Or could these be man-made ‘Acts of God’terrorist attacks on US soil? That’s what

The Unsung Patriots
, from Trabuco Press (www.theunsungpatriots.com<http://www.theunsungpatriots.com/>), believes can happen. And he wants to warnAmericans about it before we get blindsided again.
How is it possible that an event like this could happen?
How could terrorists get a hold of nuclear devices, let alone get them to US soil?
How solid is the science behind this theory?
What would the ramifications of such an occurrence be?
What would the government have to do to prevent this from ever happening?
On November 13, 2008, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) held the cautionaryShakeOut Scenario earthquake drill in Southern California. The Southern section of the San Andreas Fault is overdue for a major seismic event by a factor of more than 2.Mere nudges could break it and the other faults free. Set in the summer of 1961, The Unsung Patriots is the previously untold story of how theguidance system of our first ICBM, the Atlas E, could be confused (thus rendering it of no strategic value), and how World War III may have narrowly been averted. Of currentsignificance, however, the Epilogue details how those nudges to the earthquake faults can
