I wonder just how the poers that be will prevent the internet when they desire to completely shut it down? Sever all T1 lines? send out a massive e-bomb, a series of "EMP" accidents blamed on UFOs?

They just want to change the internet to a super highway of disinformation. People are not into television like they used to be. I doubt they counted on the popularity of the net!
The Information Operations Roadmap (IOR) recommends that psychological operations (Psyops) “should consider a range of technologies to disseminate propaganda in enemy territory: unmanned aerial vehicles, "miniaturized, scatterable public address systems", wireless devices, cellular phones and the internet.” No idea is too costly or too far-fetched that it escapes the serious consideration of the Pentagon chieftains.
The War Dept. is planning to insert itself into every area of the internet from blogs to chat rooms, from leftist web sites to editorial commentary. The objective is to challenge any tidbit of information that appears on the web that may counter the official narrative; the fairytale of benign American intervention to promote democracy and human rights across the planet.
The Pentagon’s plans for engaging in “virtual warfare” are impressive. As BBC notes: “The operations described in the document include a surprising range of military activities: public affairs officers who brief journalists, psychological operations troops who try to manipulate the thoughts and beliefs of an enemy, computer network attack specialists who seek to destroy enemy networks.” (BBC)

Well all this does is prove what I have been saying all along, that the US has tirned into a full blown Fascist state. Perhaps now the nay sayers and doubters will finally realise that I was right all along. And for all thsoe who say where is your proof here it is, this and many actions that have taken place in the US over the past decade prove my facts.
If the government wanted to, it could shut the entire Internet down.
