Their horses are swifter than leopards,
more fierce than the evening wolves;
their horsemen press proudly on.
Their horsemen come from afar;
they fly like an eagle swift to devour.
They all come for violence,
all their faces forward.

The Manhattan Project’s Angel

Louis S.

There’s much controversy that surrounds the creation and subsequent use of the atomic bomb by the United States against Japan during WWII. (Personally I think the potential  destruction of our planet is overkill (NO pun intended) and the moral implications following the destruction of innocent lives in Japan speak for itself.

Being a native of New Mexico I’m very familiar with  all the rumors of secret government “goings-on” behind lock and key and automatic weapons under the cover of hollowed out mountains and underground bunkers.
