Accelerant- Sixth Extinction


  The World Is Broken…we must fix it.

  We live in a universe that is about 14 billion years old. Our beautiful planet Earth is over 4.5 billion years old. In this expanse of time, Earth has witnessed five extinctions when more than 75% to 96% of the species on the planet disappeared.

  Biologists, paleontologists, and geologists all have theories. Yet there are some who say that they were simply God’s way of hitting the reset button to fix what had been broken and allow life to start again. Biologists and paleontologists suspect we’re living through the sixth major mass extinction now.

  The Genesis Organization, endowed with its technology, army, and finance could change the course of history and the planet. In fact, this is Genesis’ calling. Genesis believes that in an extraordinarily short period, humans have managed to alter the earth with such geologic forcing effects that we have and continue to negatively affect climate change, ocean, and air pollution. Genesis believes that the Western World and its allies are causing the sixth mass extinction of species with it corrupt politics, wars, business greed, racism, and quest to dominate the world’s cultures.

  It is estimated that some 7,600 metric tons (8,378 tons) of defunct satellites hurtle around the Earth at speeds of up to 17,500 mph, threatening functioning spacecraft and the earth. We are killing the earth and polluting outer space around it. The Greenland Ice Sheet is losing 110 million Olympic size swimming pools worth of water each year. One of the largest icebergs ever recorded recently broke off from Larsen C ice shelf…the third fracture on the Antarctic Peninsula in just over two decades.

  America and her allies have broken the world and things must be set right again. This time, it will be different. Genesis will execute a massive plan to activate the reset button that will accelerate the sixth extinction.Genesis will watch continents burn if this is the price that must be paid to set things right.

  "The world is broken. Genesis mission is to accelerate the sixth extinction and create a new world. One continent, new currency, the new world economy, one leader and one army. 'One Genesis World'" ~Supreme Commander

  About Author

  The Adventure Continues

  Chapter One — The Shepherds

  “Good Evening, this is Michèle Voclain reporting for France Télévisions. Here is today’s top story. French National Front leader earlier spoke at a meeting of right-wing politicians in Germany. She was adamant in her belief that radical patriotism is the engine of the future. The presidential candidate predicted that voters in France, Germany, and the Netherlands would follow the movement in the United States to elect President Donald Trump and Britain popular ‘Brexit’ decision to leave the European Union. The French National Front leader rallied unparalleled support when she cried, “Corrupt politics and bias media has severely weakened the world’s eco-political systems and created civil unrest upon the world people. Yesterday, a new America. Today...a new Europe. The world is broke...we need to fix it.”

  Meanwhile, on a continent far beyond the Middle East and an ocean away, hidden within the Andes Mountain range was a spectacular mountain, Aconcagua, known by the locals as the Stone Sentinel. Among Aconcagua's 16,000-foot peaks was one of Genesis’s Hives. Each hive had an Air Traffic Control System Command Center.

  On the flight deck of the Aconcagua Command Center, Supreme Commander Lila paced impatiently as she watched the heavy transport helicopter complete their pre-flight check. The copter is heavy with passengers, gold, and silver. The ‘Shepherds’ were on their way home. The gunships fitted with anti-ship missiles looked quite intimidating as they sat on the south Helipad. The tilt-rotor gunships can take off and land like a helicopter. Once airborne, their engine can be rotated to convert the aircraft into a turboprop airplane capable of high-speed, high-altitude flight.

  Two of the passengers, Ahmed and Qasim were having a quiet conversation. Ahmed whispered to Qasim. “Enough of this cowering to this ruthless bitch. I think it is time.”

  Qasim patted Ahmed on his hand, “Dear brother, perhaps that time is overdue but today is not that day. Revenge is a slow knife that cuts the deepest. Be patience. Allah is on our side.”

  “Atar 17, this is the Flight Deck…...you are cleared to El Salvador via radar vectors to Pará Brazil. Climb and maintain twelve thousand feet. Departure from South Helipad, Contact departure control on 120.9 MHz, squawk 0428. We are reporting extreme buffeting by frigid winds at low attitude.” Supreme Commander Lila waited until she saw the gunship become a distant dot on the horizon. Suddenly she heard a voice.

  “Supreme Commander, this is Atar 17.”

  She heard the pilot praying over the Flight Deck’s communication system,

  “And if ye are slain, or die, in the way of Allah, forgiveness, and mercy from Allah are far better than all ye could amass.“ Supreme Commander Lila gave the order to the flight deck weapons officer. “Activate the weapons system laser.”

  “At your command, my lord.”

  The weapons officer operated the digital panel that controlled the weapons system and the laser canon rose out of the mountain.

  “My lord, we have entered the tracking solutions.”

  The Supreme Commander put her hand on the weapons officer’s shoulder and nodded in approval.

  They could track the gunship by its unique thermal signature. The laser cann
on system used its mid-wave infrared sensors to identify the transport about 30 miles out. The laser canon instantly tracked and precisely targeted the gunship's fuel tanks.

  “Targets acquired, Supreme Commander.”

  “On my mark soldier, ready, steady, mark . . .”

  The laser cannon shot a beam of focused energy that hit the gunship’s fuel tanks like welding torches cutting through butter. They never knew what hit them. It was total disintegration. Moments later, nothing was left but ashes in the fierce, cold wind.

  Twenty-four hours earlier, the Hive had been swarming with people occupied with conducting and executing covert operations. The Hive’s four massive buildings were spread across 18 acres, including five acres underground. Shielded by the constant, strong, violent, and cold snowy weather, the Hive possessed a natural buffer against its enemies, both foreign and domestic.

  It was a typically cold bitter day; perhaps one of the coldest days of the year in this region. A heavy transport helicopter that looked like an intimidating gunship descended to the south helipad. It was a perfect transport for the heavily guarded group of men. Its design seemed deceiving, as the huge gunship had a low radar signature, high noise reduction, and an extended flying range, capable of speeds of up to 393 mph. Yet no one could hear or see the helicopter coming, as it employed advanced stealth technology. Supreme Commander Lila had invited the leaders of several world-renowned terrorist groups here to give them her decision. This tight-knit group was known and feared as “the Shepherds.” Genesis was the only significant Islamic organization standing in the way of the planned “Allah’s World Order.” This new organization, “A.W.O.” combined the vast resources of many already well-financed revolutionary and religious organizations.

  In the privacy of the Air Traffic Control System Command Center, Lila watched as the ‘Shepherds’ departed the helicopter. She smiled as she saw old friends disembark. Abu Bakr Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram. Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Quaeda, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, Akhtar Mohammad Mansour Khan Muhammad, leader of the Taliban, Qasim al-Raymi, leader of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Fazal Hayat, leader of the Tehrik-i-Taliban of Pakistan and Ahmed Omar, the Emir, leader of the Somalia-based Islamist group al-Shabaab. They quickly boarded a shuttle surrounded by their armed guards and were whisked away to warm and spacious accommodations.

  It was the end of a Ramadan day. The Maghrib prayer began after sunset. The fast was broken with the Iftar meal shared by the Shepherds in one of Genesis’ grand dining rooms. The feast began with delicious succulent figs.

  Qasim al-Raymi, sat across from the Supreme Commander at dinner.

  “Supreme Commander, what a feast! Fresh fruit, vegetables, Bangladeshi beef curry, and Pomegranate stew with chicken. I love what you have done for us.”

  “You are our guests, Qasim. Besides, old honorable friend…I just wanted you to be comfortable.”

  “And don’t forget the lemon and thyme lamb chops and maqluba.”

  “Abu Bakr...I had the chef prepare them just for you.” They all laughed as they dined and simply enjoyed the evening...a Ramadan evening.

  The next morning, the Shepherds rose early, said their prayers and hurried to breakfast before the sun rose. Then they caught shuttles that took them some eight stories underground to begin a day of grueling talks and negotiations.

  The Supreme Commander was pouring a very hot cup of Sudanese coffee as the Shepherds arrived. High Commander Mustafa and the Royal Guard were already in place as they watched the leaders disembark from the shuttles. She noticed High Commander Mustafa scanning the spacious theater-style meeting room to be sure the royal guard was in place.

  “Relax,” she said. “No one can get to us here.”

  High Commander Mustafa bowed humbly and smiled nervously.

  “A salaam alaikum,” was heard softly but firmly. The response to the Supreme Commander's greeting was a unified lion’s roar, “Wa-alaikum-salaam!” as all bowed humbly towards her with the highest respect.

  “Coffee is hot. Have a cup.”

  Everyone took their seats at the grand round table. Lila bowed and took her seat. She was in full uniform and commanded their attention. She had earned her rank among the Shepherds. They knew her might and veracity, as her power had descended to her by blood right from the Persian Empire. Thanks to her organization’s economic and political might, they called her “The Shepherdess.” Her father was known as a wise but fierce Ayatollah. He was referred to commonly as the Supreme Leader. The Supreme Leader was more powerful than the President of Iran and appointed the heads of many powerful posts in the military, civil government, and judiciary.

  Abu Bakr very cautiously replied, “Supreme Commander, we have declared that the State of the Islamic Caliphate be created, as set out by Muhammad himself 1,400 years ago. We are passionate in our belief that Sharia is prescribed by and must be enforced in the public sphere by a global Islamic state. We have all agreed that our organizations response to the ever-growing threat of the Western world to our culture and way of life was a proper one. Now you say you disagree with our approach?”

  Lila slammed her hand down on the table, “No, what I am saying is that western military political leaders have been unnerved by gruesome public beheadings, mass executions and attacks on American, British, and French soil by many of the organizations under ISIS leadership.”

  Fazal humbly interrupted, “Shepherdess, it is they who have broken the world? We strive only to make things right again.”

  Lila reminded them, “Then there is the infamous September 11, 2001 attack on the American city of New York. Nineteen of your al-Qaeda operatives hijacked four U.S. passenger airliners. Two were flown into the Twin Towers in New York. One crashed into the Pentagon and another into the Pennsylvania countryside after passengers attempted to wrestle control of the aircraft to prevent an attack on the U.S. Capitol. Two thousand seven hundred and fifty-three people were killed at the World Trade Center site, 184 at the United States Pentagon Building in Washington D.C. and 40 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. A total of 2,977 people were killed.”

  Qasim cried out, “Shepherdess, these matters are quite complicated and things can go wrong.”

  High Commander Mustafa shouted, “We had people in the Twin Towers. We were completing a major money-laundering op and we lost 245 people. No bodies or traces remained, as they were cremated. We all uphold the belief that deceased Muslims must not be cremated.

  Supreme Commander motioned for High Commander Mustafa to be quiet.

  Abu Bakr growled, “With all due respect Shepherdess...put a muzzle on that dog.”

  Several Royal Guard left their positions and surrounded Abu Bakr.

  Abu Bakr growled again, “I will kill them where they stand with my bare hands.”

  The High Commander shouted, “Stand down soldiers! Now!”

  Ahmed Omar, raised his hands in prayer position.

  Abu Bakr nodded. “Shepherdess, we did not know this.”

  “Would the knowledge have stopped you?”

  Abu Bakr did not respond, but the Supreme Commander could tell that it would not have.

  The Supreme Commander poured a glass of water. She took a sip and continued. “Under my leadership, I have purposely guided Genesis away from rogue activities such as restaurant bombings, skyjackings, kidnappings, and hostage-taking. This is simply not Genesis’ signature. Genesis views these activities as difficult and of high risk. It picks its missions carefully. We deploy premeditated, politically motivated attacks against information, computer systems, software, and data. The violence, destruction, and disruption of services create fear by causing confusion and uncertainty within enemy populations. We do have the capacity and will to destroy infrastructures, both physical and in cyberspace, which support enemy nations. Cyber-terrorism is a distinct part of Genesis’ signature. Cyber-terrorism allows Genesis to conduct operations with little or no risk.”

  Ahmed hesitated
then asked, “Supreme Commander...are you with us?”

  “Ahmed, we seek to inspire non-Muslims to accept our way of life...not to intimidate them. We seek more of a political and economic solution rather than one which requires force. If we are tested...I assure you, we can deliver nuclear heat of biblical proportions to any location on this planet...but we prefer other methods.”

  Supreme Commander rose from her conference chair and walked up to the towering multi-touch video screen collaboration wall and simultaneously shared streaming images across several topics. “At this moment, we distance ourselves from you...even as our final goal is the same.”

  Qasim asked, “What is that final goal?”

  “Qasim...do not test my patience. The goal for all of us has been freedom from the Western world’s misery and vice.”

  “Forgive me, my lord...I just needed to know that you are still with us?”

  Supreme Commander did not waiver, Her beautiful eyes steady like iron. Her voice was even steadier, like steel. “How many times have I strongly recommended to many of the leaders in this room to invest in military grade communications technology, encrypted and utilizing anti-face-detection and recognition protocols? Some of you continue to ignore our scientific advisors to the extent that we consider it an unhealthy and callous disregard that endangers us all.”

  Several leaders looked at each other as if they could read each other thoughts. She knew they were not pleased. Supreme Commander simultaneously touched several interactive panels on the touchscreen. Several streaming news reports pulled from French, British, and American news media appeared.

  “What idiots allowed this to happen? The news reports state that four Islamic State extremists have been accused of making threats against Pope Francis and been arrested by Italian and Kosovan police. Three suspects were arrested in Italy while one ethnic Albanian suspect, whom authorities describe as the group’s leader, was arrested in Kosovo. I would have issued the order to have them all executed, including the leader, for such indiscretion. By knocking on the devil’s door this way, you have created a monster that we have to contend with…”
