Eagles and Dragons-A short story about the US having to deal with a second Cuban missle crisis (with

US President-Gentlemen. Ladies. Good morning. We usually have the national security meeting at 9am and we'll continue to have the 9am meeting. But given recent events, I have decided to add this 7am meeting to it. Every day. Until further notice.

As your all aware, we have a second Cuban missle crisis unfolding. This time it's with China. The Chinese built that base in Cuba and we've had electronic eyeballs on it since before they broke ground. Heck, I have a picture right here of the ceremonial first shovel. It was taken by a drone.

And your all aware of the Chinese intent to station long range ballistic missles in Cuba. And I will not allow those missles into Cuba while I am President. I will go to war before I surrender the security of the United States of America to this outragous act by the Communists.

We believe that first delivery of long range ballistic missles is halfway between Hawaii and Panama. Right HERE! The Pentagon believes those missles are on THIS ship, right in the middle of the Chinese fleet. We have the US Navy to the north and south of this Chinese fleet. Our pilots and their pilots are playing a very dangerous game of cat and mouse hourly. A trigger happy pilot on either side could very well trigger a major conflict. At the least.

I have also ordered our US Navy to block the Pacific side of the Panama Canal. Those ships, our ships, will be in position in the next 24 hours.

We already have the Gulf side of the canal blocked and I have received a letter of protest from the Panamanian President. I have also received his seperate request sent both to the United States and China through the UN. His request is simply that neither side allow this conflict to encompass the nation of Panama.

Other central American countries issued similiar requests. If war breaks out between us and China in Panama, it is going to turn Central America upside down, North and South America alike. All of central America will try to evacuate into South America and that simply won't go well for anyone. Mainly Columbia. Our relations with Columbia continue to break down because of this building incident.

Chile and Argentina have both requested we keep the conflict away from the southern tip of South America so basiclly, they are asking us, not literally, to keep the crisis in Panama.

As a precaution, I have sent a fleet to protect the South American, Antartic gateway.

And we are finishing up a loose blockade of Cuba. This is proving to be a dangerous challange due to the already exisitng presence of the Chinese Navy. Including one Chinese aircraft carrier which will have to be taken out if hostilities begin.

I don't know what is going to happen when that Chinese fleet meets the US blockade at Panama. Publicly, we have NATO supporting us but privately, ladies and gentlemen, just look at some of these memos.

Look at the memo from France. I'd hardly call that unwavering support.

I don't think our NATO allies will leave us standing at the alter if hostilities break out but Russia's support siding with China is very VERY unsettling to both the United States and our European allies.

In the next 48 hours, we will study our nuclear options. But I pray to Jesus it won't come to that. And I doubt the Russians would take a nuclear assualt on China lightly. The possibility of the Russians retaliating against a US sponsered nuclear strike using their own nukes against's astronomical.

(A cell phone rings.)
Sec. of Defense Charlie Kellog-Mr. President, this might be an update. I have to take this call.

President-Go ahead Charlie.

Kellog-Hello? Yes, go ahead. The Santa Maria? No. Wait a minute, hold on. Anybody here know anything about the Santa Maria?

Sec. of State-Like, Christopher Columbus?

Kellog-No. A yaht with the mayor of Miami on it. A peace mission to Havanna.

President-What peace mission?

Kellog-Listen, did ANYBODY send the mayor of Miami on a peace mission to Havanna? He's on a yaht halfway between Key West and Cuba and the Cubans think it's a spy ship.

President-What peace mission?

Kellog-The Cubans are about to blow it up.

President-Oh no No NO! Don't tell me it starts like this! Give me that phone! NOW! Hello? This is the President of the United States. Who am I talking to? And your in charge of communications on the George Washington? Well, I want you to communicate with me what in the hell is going on down there!

President-There's no peace mission. You've got some zealot out there. You tell your Admiral the President wants the Navy SEALS to board that ship! You tell him that now!

President-Holy Christ! Listen to me very carefully and do EXACTLY as I say! You tell this Santa Maria to stop in it's tracks and drop it's anchor right now. You tell them that's a order from me! And you tell the Cubans that is not a spy ship. And if they so much as fire a warning shot, the USS George Washington will blow. them. up! You tell them that right now mister!

President-Hello? What's happening? What's going on? Hello? What the hell? Did he hang up on me? Here, I don't have a phone like this. Call him back. Get him back on the........

Switchboard Operator-Mr. President-I have an urgent call from NORAD! Mr. President?

President-Send it through. And you get that communications guy back on the phone. Or anybody!

NORAD-Mr. President, we have two ballistic launches from Cuba heading north. Three confirmed signaturs, sir.

President-Elizabeth sweetheart, listen to me. Sshhh, listen Elizabeth. Punch Condition Zero. Okay? Right now, right now Elizabeth.

Switchboard Operator-areyousure



President-That's wonderful Elizabeth. Great job. Now activate the Emergency Broadcast System, then call Japan and tell them the Dragon is out. They know what it means. Then follow protocal. Get out of here!

Switchboard Operator-Oh my God.

President-Elizabeth, do what I said!

Secret Service-All agents, the President has declared a condition zero. The players are in the box. Incoming arrows. Home Team is Super Nova.

President-Ladies and gentlemen, any second now, about 20 agents are going to come through that door and take us to the.....

Meanwhile aboard the USS George Washington.

“Admiral Turner, we have outbound birds in the air! Telemetry points to DC, New York Chicago and Atlanta!”

Turner turned to look out of the CiC. “Launch the ready flight immediately and bring the Task Force to full alert.” “Crap,” he thought, “this is the last way I wanted to end my career. That idiot mayor has started World War 3.”

“Well, the road to hell is paved in good intentions.” he muttered.

LT Smith looked at him. “Excuse me, Sir?”

“Just talking to myself Lieutenant, launch the ready flight and get the others prepared as well. This is gonna be a long day, if we survive it.”

LT Smith spoke into the mike. "Raven Six, you are cleared to launch. Hostilities have been confirmed. You are cleared for action."

Police Officer-Rita, I don't have any damn idea. Put the camera away, get in the van and get the hell ot of here! Do me a favor. Take me with you. I have to get to a different command post. Be quiet a second. Dispatch, were is the new command?

NORAD-THAT is the White House? How far down does it go?

NORAD-The bunker is pretty deep. I'm looking it up.

NORAD-Not the bunker. THAT! How deep did that missle go?

NORAD-Gentlemen, if that is the White House, we have to consider the possibility that we no longer have a President.

NORAD-Well Jesus Christ! If they took out the President, they can take us out.

NORAD-Let's go ahead and move this along to DefCon 1. Pull out your nuclear protocols. Notify all the silos, we are at DefCon 1 and stand by.

NORAD-Confirm, DefCon 1. All I need is an order.

NORAD-Stand by on the order. Once we launch, that's it.

NORAD-Pentagon on 2.

NORAD-Damnit, look at that. Well, most of it is still intact. They're all walking. Anybody know were they're going?

NORAD-Hey, Can I take Galaxy 4? It'll shut down DirecTV but I gotta take it.

NORAD-Galaxy 4, take it. I'm busy. DirecTV's not fighting this war. Don't care. Okay, sorry I missed that. Were's our middle east sub again?
