Corp of Engineers built these things, based on Extreme Variables. Bomb shocks were part of their design Characteristics, so i feel pretty confident, unless they are using a Nuke?..That dam isn't going anywhere

You do not need to blow it up (like the OKC building). You only need weaken the structure...then, let the massive pressures of the water behind it to work its slow yet relentless movement into those cracks. And even if it did not severely affect the structure, the thought of that possibility would induce FUD into the community.
This FUD might be even more powerful that having the dam breached...since it demonstrates the possibility, and will require more $$ to repair, protect, and more regularly inspect it over time. That cost alone would weaken the economy and has potential to raise the taxes to help pay for that need.
My comic comment still applies to those that do not think temporally in these situations. It is a 4 dimensional problem folks.

I think this is called being alert and paying attention to those terrorists your president let into our country, and has now allowed to disappear after confirming they have terrorist links. I think this is your denial and desire to divert attention from what Obama and the left have done, the threat they have placed upon the average citizen of the United States under their misguided and childish administration of our safety.
I know your response is the typical..."crap, everyone was right that letting terrorists in was a bad idea" and now the weak and useless distraction to try to avoid your crime and the crime of our government in placing butchers among the sheep.
The fact is this...Obama could have stopped this...the borders could have been secured...visas didn't have to be issued to now known terrorists..."refugees" did not have to be forced upon the states who (by the way) didn't want to allow this threat. But instead...you guys decided you just had to do it.
The fact is...Obama, his administration and the left have blood on their hands. They have been a contributor and enabler to every terrorist murder that happens in this country and if there was a real justice system, all of them would pay the price for each American death they allowed if not invited.
You let killers into our neighborhoods and now divert attention and security efforts because you realized you were wrong...just like the world was telling you? But your screwed up, fairy-tale ideology was more important. Wear the blood...take responsibility for the killings. You asked for this...you got it...you should be held as responsible for the onslaught as you would have taken responsibility if your plan worked. It didn't. And it has just begun.
Doom porn? This is the doing of the left...no one else.

This is why the neighbor lady in San Bernadino didn't call authorities about suspicious activity. Instead of going with her gut, she ignored it as to not be labeled a bigot. If she would've reported the activity, the San Bernadino victims most likely would still be alive.
Label me a racist, bigot, etc all you want. If I see some suspicious people or activities, I'm reporting it.

Believe me, they are aware of the vulnerability of dams, bridges and tunnels. Except there hasn't been an attack on US soil in that regard since 2001, has there?
Not that I am aware of anyway. Theres your sign. A group of men aren't going to ask to rent a boat to "look at dams" if they intend to bump a boat load of dynamite into it and make it fail.
Personally I think they would tend to hide such a thing from the general public, train derailings, plane crashes, bridge collapses, power outages and such, all are accountable as accidents in the main stream, right? Not sleeper cell Jihadis, looking to wage war in America.
When that happens it will be much bigger than anyone can miss, just like 911, just like the Anthrax and Ebola scare, just like second suns.
Edit: It will just happen without any advance notice, instead of "credible threat" type advance warnings. Just like all other attacks against western interests, so far.
You can't just assume criminals wouldn't make stupid mistakes.

It's PC nonsense like this that causes other people not to report incidents. Please stop trying to prevent valid news from going out because it might hurt your politically correct feelings.

There is no need to be afraid when members are simply sharing a piece of news on ATS. This should not cause people to be more "afraid" and apprehensive toward people of Middle Eastern backgrounds (although of course that will still happen).
I don't think OP is fearmongering though - and there have been a lot of weird happenings in MO this month and if the FBI is looking into it, there might be some credibility to the premise that these men were planning some sort of attack. Better safe than sorry.
