I think they have been looking for an excuse to implement their plans to shut down the internet and move everyone to Internet 2.0 - an attack on our infrastructure could create the hysteria needed.

Knock out the power in a few cities and blame it on hackers or foreign agents and watch as the internet melts away.

I totally agree,I was just talking to my hubby about it a few mins. ago and we were both saying the same thing. The question for me is what can we do about it? My conclusion is there isnt a darn thing we can do but it will really be a sad day for me if it does happen. I'm hoping i'm wrong. Take care and star and flag.
