If all water plants get destroyed, what will Americans do? You couldn't take a shower, but you could take a bath in milk. But ppl cant afford the amount of milk for additional days and additional ppl they live with. So if all the water plants get destroyed and then fires get set, what will Americans do?

Currently trucks have to get weighed at points on the road. But busses dont have to get weighed. If somebody wanted to get a bus bomb to a location they'd do so with ease. Charter busses, besides Greyhound, can slip in anywhere without drawing attention. When you see one you first think that on it are ppl on a trip of some kind. You never think there could be bomb materal packed inside or even where the baggage goes.

Whomever can send the busses packed with bomb material just outside federal buildings and court buildings, have the driver abandon them, set off the bombs, and wallah because the statement makes the news headlines.

The government aint looking out for you if they dont have anti-destroying measures concerning the way destruction could come best in the West.

My threads leave the U.S. so speachless to my intelligence.

It would take way too much money and effort to organize the bombing of all the strategic targets in the U.S. Even if most weren't guarded, it wouldn't take long for the FBI to start noticing a lot of fuel oil and fertilizer being rounded up by suspicious types and put a stop to any activity like that.

Besides, water treatment plants are not that complicated, and there's still plenty of flowing water in the U.S. It would be costly to re-build all the plants, but it could be done. And until it was, we'd get by like we used to less than a century ago, by drawing water from wells, reservoirs and rivers, and purifying it ourselves on the stove.

Come on. There are many more damaging attacks that could be done on the U.S., if that's your goal. Use some imagination.

I spent 8, almost 9 years as a volunteer firefighter in a rural Missouri department, so I can address at least part of this one from personal experience. The water used in fire fighting doesn't have to go through a treatment plant...water straight out of the ground can be used, and in the aftermath of the 1993 floods, we even used standing floodwater for fire suppression. Even trucks intended for urban markets usually have at least one 'hard suction' line with a debris screen on the end, which will let them reload from any standing water.

As for general-consumption water, in the absence of water treatment plants, the US Army could (and likely would) mobilize their combat engineer elements (both regular army and national guard) to purify water and assist in repairing municipal plants. It's also not hard to purify water for your own use...boiling is a good first step, and very simple to do. Been there, done that, in fact.

I hate to break it to you, but trucks aren't weighed as some sort of bomb-detection scheme. Trucks are weighed because there are limits on vehicle weight that are set by law, primarily because of wear on roadways and strain on bridges. As for parking a bus loaded with bomb material in front of a federal building, good luck. For one, the bus windows are going to give the game away...even if the bomb isn't visible through them, the lack of passengers would be. For another, it's hard to park a bicycle in front of the State Capitol (or state Supreme Court, or State Legislature), never mind a bus.

They do, at that...it's hard to speak plainly when you're laughing.

Frankly, the 'bus in front of a building' thing is a bit old. I'll leave it as an exercise for the interested reader to figure out how to seriously cripple roughly 1/3 of the U.S. with less than a ton of explosives, Yes, it's possible, at the right time of year.

^^^But if there aint enough firefighters to fight a bunch of fires in seperate locations over a city, then the using of standing water thing wont do much good.

I was watching a show about weighting trucks and they do it also as a measure against potential truck bombs. They check the heat and radiation coming from the truck. They must have added stuff for homeland security because it wasn't an old show.

And busses... well I seen big coach busses with tinted windows to where you couldnt see any passengers. You could only see the driver.

In my city everyone knows you can park right next to the court building. Hell, you can drive up on the grass yard part if needed to get extra close.
