Robur The Conquerer

On the cinematic theatre-sized screen in his private quarters aboard the plane, the individual known as Robur The Conquerer had a large electronic map of the globe of the world projected on the screen in front of him.

From here, Robur examined the world’s trouble spots.

The plane flew into space. For Robur’s planes already ventured forth where Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin planes only dreamed of venturing.

The Conquerer looked out the window and looked out at the world in real space and time.

. . .

“Who is Robur the Conquerer?” New York Times reporter Colin Hallaway asked CIA Agent Kirk Sandringham.

Sandringham had requested the meeting with his fellow Political Science undergraduate classmate Halloway.

Both had gone their separate ways after graduating from Princeton.

Sandringham had been recruited by the CIA.

Halloway had gone into journalism and eventually became a reporter with The New York Times.

“I have no idea,” Sandringham answered.

“You were the one who contacted me,” Halloway pointed out, “requesting an interview with your remarks being off the record.”

“I know,” Sandringham nodded, “for the past 7 years, I’ve kept hearing at the agency about this individual who’s known only as Robur The Conquerer. I’m not really sure what his agenda was. But after the demonstrations in Tunisia in early 2011 that toppled the government there, it seemed to be his influence that was pushing this administration into embracing the Arab Spring leading to the toppling of Mubarak in Egypt, Qaddafi in Libya and backing the overthrow of Assad in Syria.”

“For what purpose?” Halloway inquired.

“I’m not sure,” Sandringham shrugged, “to support democracy and peace in the Middle East is what he has convinced the current administration of. But lately through information I’ve received, I suspect he’s planning something else.”

“What exactly?” Halloway wanted to know.

“The destruction of Islam,” Sandringham replied.

Halloway had to laugh, “How’s he going to accomplish that?”.

“Through the use of nuclear weapons,” Sandringham looked directly at Halloway.

The answer silenced Halloway for a minute.

“I see,” Halloway finally spoke, “any idea how and when this use of nuclear weapons will occur?”.

“I’m not quite certain at this stage,” Sandringham looked in the direction of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbour.

This time Sandringham fell silent.

“Is there something else?” Halloway inquired.

“The election,” Sandringham stated blandly.

“What about the election?” Halloway drew his chair close to hear Sandringham’s response.

“Who’s the most anti-Muslim of the two candidates running?” Sandringham looked at Halloway.

His tone of voice didn’t sound so bland.

    A prophetic glimpse into what might be another step in obtaining global madness. If Hellery wins many Americans will die as she fills her coffers. If Trumpet wins other nations will burn. In the meantime the Bear is rising, The Red Dragon is looming, Scimitars of the desert are rattling all while the Eagle flies in circles trying to catch its tail. It’s time to stock up on freeze-dried beer and pizza. Hard times are just ahead.

  2. Dracul Van Helsing said,

    Hard times indeed.
    And even harder when people discover they don’t like the taste of freeze-dried pizza and beer.
