What would happen if loyalists of Saddam Hussein bombed 12 major U.S. cities one week before the presidential election, thrusting the nation and the election into chaos?
Sound familiar? A similar scenario recently took place in Spain and could happen to other European and Asian countries that assisted America in the controversial war in Iraq and who have Americans living in or visiting them.
Many people, including political pundits, believe that more large-scale terrorism will come to American soil and the American people. The broadcast threat by Al-Zawahiri, leader of Al-Queda, that bomb after bomb will soon fall on America has the majority of U.S. citizens frantic with worry. Indeed, terrorism has become one of the world’s greatest fears and concerns.
“New splinter terrorist groups are organizing everyday who want to kill Americans around the world, making our safety questionable for generations to come,” said Bruce Schwartz, author of “The Twenty-First Century” (Park Avenue Press, ISBN # 0-9729076-0-2).
His new novel tells the story of America in the early years of the 21st century but was written in the 1990s, before the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Schwartz’s book warns America about the potential for a nationwide terrorist attack.
His story details the destruction of 12 U.S. cities by Iraqi terrorists just days before a presidential election and results in America’s second civil war. But Schwartz’s version of civil war is not between regions; it is between classes and races.
“In the 1990s, hundreds of black churches were burned to the ground. Prejudice is rampant, even today, in America,” Schwartz said.
The book’s release during this presidential election year will provoke many controversial discussions on where our nation is headed when it comes to foreign policy, race relations, terrorism and politics. Schwartz portrays the near future as if it were the headlines of today’s news.
Planned Television Arts, Schwartz’s publicists, believe that right now is the perfect time to release this novel because his story could potentially become reality right before our eyes.
This chillingly prophetic novel has received rave reviews because it suggests what America must do to improve our society.
