<span style='font-size: 20pt'>No-Fly Zone To Be Enforced By Shoot-To-Kill Order During NATO Summit</span>

CHICAGO (CBS) — A new report reveals plans to keep residents and dignitaries safe during the NATO Summit include a no-fly zone, with a shoot-to-kill mandate for those who break the ban.

As CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports, the government is warning small plane pilots that if they enter the no-fly zone during the summit, they may be shot down.

This is no joke. It will be enforced for May 19 to May 21.

The flight advisory was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration. The Chicago Sun-Times obtained a copy.

The advisory bans non-commercial aircraft from flying within 10 nautical miles of downtown Chicago and below 18,000 feet.

A nautical mile is about one minute of arc of latitude along any meridian. It amounts to 1,852 meters, or about 1.15078 standard miles.

As quoted in the Sun-Times, the advisory says, “The United States government may use deadly force against the airborne aircraft if it is determined that the aircraft poses an immediate security threat.”

The only aircraft allowed to fly within the restricted area include regularly-scheduled commercial passenger and cargo carriers, police, and military planes supporting the Secret Service.

This no-fly zone is not new. It has been enforced in Chicago for presidential visits, and also after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks because of terrorism-related concerns.

Your prefatory statement implies you do not approve of this security measure. Is that so? And why, if that is so, do you think this is a bad step to take?

Sarcasm my boy. Sarcasm.

I think they should mount ground to air missiles on the roofs of apartment buildings to like the Britts are doing for the Olympics.

Just to really show them how worried we really are.

One thing they should do is though is fly in a few plane 747 loads of TSA agent and shoot them down for target practice.

It would make a lot of people happy.
