The new five-acre spot at the airport, near the hangar where the Guard parks Blackhawk helicopters, is a perfect location because of the military's transformation from a Cold War force to one prepared for new threats in the wake of 9/11, Katkus said.
For example, the military today strives to better protect airports and the armory's location will help provide additional security, he said.
Scene: PAKISTAN BORDER CAVE.
Mohammed Omar enters into the cave, and kneels on the symbol of Al Quida.
OMAR: What is thy bidding, my master.
The ghostly image of Osama Bin Laden appears above the cave floor.
BIN LADEN: There is no great disturbance among the Americans.
OMAR: I have seen it.
BIN LADEN: We must strike fear into our enemy.
OMAR: Yes my master.
BIN LADEN: We must destroy.
OMAR: But where? New York... Washington... we have done these.
BIN LADEN: Indeed. We must strike deep into their heart. We must strike them where they will never recover. York Model Railway Station.
OMAR: Isn't that part of another skit by a much funnier fat Irish man?
BIN LADEN: Was it? Damn that bald Irishman. Make a note: We crash an air plane into Dara O'Briain's house next June.
OMAR: Yes, my master.
BIN LADEN: No, what will truly break the will of the American pigs... is if we attack the Bethel Alaska's Airport.
OMAR: Bethel? Is that... wise?
BIN LADEN: Indeed. Our strike will come suddenly, and without warning. Yes, more people are in the average Reno Casino on a given day, than have been in Bethel ever, but this is exactly why it will work.
OMAR: But... my master... they have a new armory building, which was built in part through a homeland security justification.
BIN LADEN: Damn those American rats! They'll rue the day they thwarted me with their strategic protection of Bethel.
OMAR: continues to kneel in uncomfortable silence.
BIN LADEN: Just as well. We probably should not split our resources from our plan to attack the true hub of America, Great Falls Montana.
