Operation Change The World (Ghayara Al Kalam) | Chap 2 Pt 1
11 November 2012 – Somewhere in Arizona, USA. Dusty (also known as 50 Caliber) was sitting at the table in his barn ‘shed’ cleaning one of the weapons Bones and his crew had issued him a couple years ago when they came by and ‘enlisted’ him in a clandestine operation here in the US. The weapon was a modified Barrett .50 caliber sniper rifle, which he had fired during a mission two nights ago. He was still surprised at the balance of such a heavy-duty rifle, even when the silencer and flash suppressor was mounted. His thoughts began to wander in speculation of what it must be like to be on the business end of this thing, what is the last thing the target would see just before impact… When his ‘Bones phone’ rang.
He pushed the button and Answered “Gunny, blue” (blue was the safe and alone code)
“Fifty, Bones here, are you near a TV?”
“Affirmative” Dusty replied.
“Turn it to a news channel and call me back when POTUS is done.” Jim ‘Bones’ Preston hung up.
Dusty held the phone out away from his face and said, “And a Howdy Doody to you too Asshole!” He set the phone down and picked up the remote sitting at the end of the table and turned the TV on that is mounted up in the corner just under the roof and next to the cabinet where he kept his jugs of homemade ‘Hooch Juice Shine’.
It was already set to Fox News and Megan Kelly was on the air saying “We are expecting the President at any minute, The White House has not released any advanced text but has stated the President will comment on the election results, and the emergency quarantine of both Chicago and Seattle…”
Dusty thought What the hell? Chicago? Seattle? Damn, Some of that crap did get through. Dusty had voted absentee since he had been on his mission since Oct 20th, He hadn’t yet heard what the result was, and just as he wondered the bottom headline on the TV flashed “President Elect Gov Nikki Haley (R) would comment following the President’s address to the Nation”. Dusty got up from the table and moved to the hooch cabinet and pulled down the blue jug, thinking “Time for the Good Stuff.” As he was pouring a four finger shot in an old chipped blue ceramic and metal camping coffee cup he heard Megan say “and now here is the President of the United States.”
When Dusty saw the Presidents face on the TV his stomach tightened up with a pre combat tension, some less familiar with the feeling would call fear, but was really the gut feeling that everything was a bout to change, and not for the better. “Damn!”…. (to be continued)
