What if they had a war and nobody knew it ?

Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan.

I'm sure you have all seen the movie. Some of you may be familiar with the original TV episode. I'll bet that not many of you have read the prequel "Star Trek, The Eugenics War" vols.1&2 by Greg Cox.

OK Svin, You have finally gone over the edge and changed this to a Trekkie site, right?

Wrong. I actually do have a point here somewhere. As I'm sure you all remember, Khan and his minions were the product of a genetic engineering scheme that resulted in the "Eugenics Wars" of the late 20th Century. If these wars were so destructive, why do we 21st century denizens not remember them more clearly ? Greg Cox has an interesting answer. The war actually took place, but was conducted largely in secret.

A Secret War ? "Holy Photon Torpedoes Batman. What a diabolical plot!"

"Right you are Boy Wonder, and its happening again."

"Right now?"

"Even as we speak!"

Ok, sorry for the geeky intro, but I really liked the Khan Picture. Too bad it was just a ruse to get you to check this out.

Ok, here is the real thing. Not a Starship. It is an Israeli F15i Fighter/Bomber (Made in U.S.A.). You all heard about when a formation of these crossed into Syrian airspace and destroyed what has been described variously as a "missile launch installation", "a shipment of missiles from Iran" or a "Nuclear facility" purchased from North Korea. You read it on the front page just last week, remember? No? Well, you must have seen it on the news, no? NO?
Surely you remember the Eugenic Wars?
Ok Svin. First we get Star Trek, and now we get World War IV and its a Secret ???
Next you're gonna tell us that Bin Laden was killed at Tora Bora and thats a secret too!
Umm....Have you seen his "latest" video? Its been in the can longer than Prince Albert. Here is the deal as near as I can make it out. Hope the Men In Black don't come back here after they read this. Israeli Jets did indeed strike targets in north-eastern Syria, which is an act of war, same way Pearl Harbor was. Syria doesn't wanna talk about it because
A) They got caught with their hand in the WMD cookie jar and...
B) They just spent really big bucks buying an "unjammable" anti-aircraft system from the Russians. Note-It did not appear to perform as advertised.
The Israelis have adopted a "Who Me?" attitude. The Russians don't want to admit that their system is a P.O.S.(Piece of Shiite). The Iranians (That'd be Ahmadamnutjob and his Diaper Head Chorus) just purchased the same P.O.S. from the Russkies as well and don't want to admit that their umbrella may have holes in it. They also don't want to admit complicity in shipping WMD to Syria or their Hezbollah buddies. The D.O.D. and the MSM dont want to talk about it for completely different and contradictory reasons. The only country that protested was North Korea, and that is just because their little cash and carry DIY(Destroy It Yourself) nuclear missile program just went chapter 7. Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive (I just now made that one up).
So. That is your super-secret, highly classified, now I'm gonna have to kill ya report on WW IV. I hope that they can keep the ending secret too.
Sweet Dreams.
