The ratio among all military personnel of only children rose from about 20 percent in 1996 to more than 70 percent in 2006.
These pampered children began quitting the military for all sorts of frivolous reasons. “I don’t want to get a tan” and “I hate military quarters with no air conditioning” were among excuses cited.
In March 2011, Xuexi Shibao (Study Times), the organ of the Central Party School that teaches party ideology, ran an article that said, “Soldiers from the one-child generation are wimps who have absolutely no fighting spirit.”
This morning, Llaneza drove an SUV loaded with a chemical mixture to the Hegenberger Road bank and parked the vehicle under an overhang of the building. He then walked away from the car, met the undercover agent at a “safe distance from the bank” and tried twice to detonate the bomb by calling the cellphone attached to the explosive device. Unbeknownst to Llaneza, the chemicals were inert and the device was incapable of exploding. Federal agents then swooped in and took him into custody.
Llaneza believes recent protests in Oakland made the area an ideal
target for an attack if the attempt was made to seem like the work of an
“umbrella organization for a loose collection of anti-government
militias and their sympathizers.” His hope, the FBI claimed, was to
trigger a civil war by prompting a government crackdown after the
bombing, which would in turn prompt a right-wing uprising.
After forgoing the San Francisco Federal Reserve as a target because of
tight security, Llaneza allegedly proposed attacking the Bank of America
branch at 303 Hegenberger Road. From December through February, Llaneza
and the undercover agent conducted electronic and physical surveillance
of the bank branch. Following a suggestion by Llaneza, the FBI rented a
storage unit in Hayward as a preparation space and also provided a
sport utility vehicle to be used in the attack. Llaneza genuinely
believed the agent was a Taliban emissary, and made plans to escape to
Pakistan and then Afghanistan by sea following the attack.
The use of drones was later confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed agents have been prepared for Dorner to make a dash for the Mexican border since his rampage began.
He said: “This agency has been at the forefront of domestic use of drones by law enforcement. That’s all I can say at the moment.”
And if they kill him with a drone will SoCal feel relieved?
