Title: BUSH ADMINISTRATION IS DEADLY SERIOUS ABOUT "SHRINKING THE GAP" -- HAS THE WORLD WAR II ERA O.S.S. BEEN RE-CREATED?
INTRODUCTION - REVIEW
Since writing NEWS1833 -- "U.S. -- E.U. Invading Africa -- And All Other Non-Integrating Gap Countries", I have noticed insurrections, attempted coups, and insurrections which are suddenly filling our news space. What is going on? We saw news stories about
Are all these seemingly minor events related somehow? Are these events part of an overall strategy, or are they simply random events?

Thus,
However, what happens when one or more countries in a "Non-Functioning Gap" region refuses to voluntarily make the change demanded by this global plan? They can be invaded and we shall surely see more of that. However, invasions are large, public events and can be costly and messy.
