Dirty Bombs, Toxic Clouds, Martial Law and Extermination Squads Right At Your Door
Due to be released here in the UK 3 days before the 5 year anniversary of 9/11 is a film that depicts massive terror attacks in downtown LA involving multiple dirty bombs that engulf the city in toxic clouds.
Right At Your Door, written and directed by Chris Gorak and starring Rory Cochrane, is a relatively low budget Independent thriller that was snapped up by UK company Lionsgate and will be mass distributed this September. The film will be released in the US sometime in 2007.
According to the film's official website the synopsis is thus:
After multiple dirty bombs are detonated, spreading deadly toxic ash across Los Angeles, Brad (Rory Cochrane) inadvertently quarantines his wife, Lexi (Mary McCormack) outside their new home by safely sealing himself inside. With the city under siege and Martial Law in affect, Brad and Lexi struggle to survive with little supply, limited time and no information—all the while separated by thin doors and thinner sheets of plastic. When "help" finally does arrive, it appears to be anything but.
From what we can gather the "help" referred to consists of squads of toxic suit wearing troops and cops that cuff and take away contaminated survivors in unmarked black vans. Cochrane's character even suggests that he has seen cops on the streets exterminating survivors by shooting them in the head.
The radio and media reports in the aftermath of the attacks are unhelpful, speculative and misleading and help to engender a climate of mass panic and fear throughout the city. A martial law situation is implemented in the wake of this.
See below for the trailers:
In reality it has been suggested on numerous occasions by different officials within the government and the military that in the immediate aftermath of a major terror attack on a US city, martial law would replace the US Constitution.
In 2003, UK police revealed that they may have to shoot any victims of a chemical, biological, nuclear or radiological strike.
The preparation for such a dirty bomb attack has already been subconsciously planted in the minds of the American and British public and it is not too far a stretch to suggest that a martial law coup d'état of the civilian control mechanisms of our countries could be played out using a staged biological or chemical event as an excuse.
In January of 2003 FBI and CIA whistleblowers told Capitol Hill Blue that the White House was scripting phony terror alerts to maintain hysteria, upkeep President Bush’s approval ratings and milk extra defense funding. The report that five Pakistani men had entered the States via Canada and were planning on carrying out a dirty bomb or biological attack was completely conjured up by the Bush administration’s black propaganda office. New York Harbor was shut down to visibly pump up the fear. One of the named suspects, Mohammed Asghar, was tracked down to Pakistan by the Associated Press. He was a fat guy running a jewelers shop and had never even been to America.
In June of this year it was revealed that a plot involving chemical weapons and targets in Toronto was totally fabricated and that the chemical weapons "never existed".
In the last fortnight charges were dropped against US citizen Jose Padilla, the "enemy combatant" who was reportedly about to set off dirty bombs in the US when he was detained. the judge cited a total lack of evidence.
And of course the latest highly dubious plot, which has been roundly criticized as grossly exaggerated at best, involved chemical liquid bombs on planes.
These are jut a few of the hundreds of phony reports of Chemical or "dirty" Bomb attacks being "right at our doors".
In reality, the actual fallout of a dirty bomb attack has been totally distorted and blown out of all proportion by the government and the media. According to research, the potential effects of a dirty bomb are known to be very limited in scope. A dirty bomb is not a nuclear weapon that creates a large blast. Rather, it is a combination of an explosive and radioactive material designed to spread radioactive material and contaminate a small area.
In fact, according to the Nuclear Energy institute, being near the site where a dirty bomb is exploded would not even guarantee that people would be exposed to the radioactive material.
"At the radiation levels created by most probable sources of radiation, there would not be enough radiation in the bomb to cause severe illness from exposure to radiation."
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission echoes these facts:
At the levels created by most probable sources, not enough radiation would be present in a dirty bomb to kill people or cause severe illness. For example, most radioactive material employed in hospitals for diagnosis or treatment of cancer is sufficiently benign that about 100,000 patients a day are released with this material in their bodies.
Furthermore the dispersal of the materials would only spread a few blocks before becoming too weak to have any effect. Certainly huge toxic cloud raining death ash over the entirety of LA is pure fantasy.
The effects would only be more significant should the most rare, deadly and highly radioactive material be employed in such an attack. This kind of material is highly regulated by government agencies, which impose strict safety and security requirements. Therefore should such a deadly attack occur the prime suspects would be rogue elements of said government agencies.
So why are the authorities talking about shooting on the spot survivors of a dirty bomb attack?
Of the forthcoming movie, Rich Cline of the Shadows on the Wall review site states:
There's a double-edged timeliness here that sends chills down the spine. The atrocity itself is reminiscent of events in Bali, Madrid and London, while the poor official response echoes the situation in New Orleans (although this film was made before Hurricane Katrina struck). In the end, Gorak indulges in a couple of ironic plot points that seem unnecessarily morbid. He's extremely critical of both the authorities and the media. And it progresses, the film feels somewhat repetitive. But the dialog and acting are so honest that it's impossible to look away.
It remains to be seen whether or not the film is another attempt to mass market fear and terror without focusing on the facts or whether Gorak's approach is more of a critique of the "post 9-11 mindset" and recent movies such as United 93.
We will carry a review of the film upon its release in the UK next week.
