The Most Subtle Use of Psy-Ops Ever

6 January 2006

In today’s (award-winning) Des Moines Register, there is an article about the new streamlined “Critical Assets” list that every state had to create after 2001. It seems that our list of 11,600 or so critical assests was too large and confusing. So, they trimmed the list to 1,360 of the most important.

To accompany the article, in the print edition there were pictures of three of the most critical assets still on this pared down list. You can see the photos online at on the left-hand side if you scroll down a bit.

And what are these oh-so-valuable sites, you ask? The Field of Dreams (because if you build it, they will come), the Krispy Kreme in Clive (a DM suburb), and the Ruan Tower (Mr. Ruan is a very wealthy DM developer and land owner).

Sigh. Yes, this is one of those times when we imports wish we could change our driver’s license and not have to tell anyone we live here.

The *Krispy Kreme*? You have GOT to be kidding. I can so see a cell of al Quaeda operatives hunched over a table, mapping out places to target in the midwest, and one of them saying, “No, no — I tell you, if we just take out the Krispy Kreme in Clive, the people’s morale will be broken, and we will be able to CRUSH them like the little bugs that they are!”
