The United States "could" be about to experience what will be known in the future as the ATTACK OF THE ELF’s
Earth Liberation Front is a most noble idea, however, some within or aligned to the organization might start to fulfill what was written of recently
by Theodore Kaczynski.
The Professor has written, to disable the modern technological system (Western Civilization) the Freedom Fighters (Elf and other Save the Earth
movements) must attack the system (USA, etc.) at the weaknesses of the Beast.
There is a multi-point attack outlined by The Professor in his recent writings, that if followed will result in very successful attacks upon modern
These attacks will be aimed at the technological infrastructure of western civilization. While burning down the office or property of some
environmental menace has been a known tactic of the Green Movement for some time, the next step in the evolution of the Green Movement will be
bringing whole segments of modern society to a standstill.
A few people can easily bring modern civilization in the west to a halt!
These are how future attacks of the Green Movement could FREEZE modern civilization in what will become routine outages that are copycatted around the
The easiest attacks will indeed be upon the electrical grid system of the industrialized world. This system uses a three-stage method to control what
is known as DEMAND. Typically a large 24 Hour major polluter like a mega-coal-burning plant or a Nuclear Plant is the main supplier of electricity to
industrialized areas or cities.
A simple bomb could disable a huge power plant and cause a major disruption of THE GRID for some time. A synchronized attack of several such major
DEMAND suppliers that operate on a much-needed 24-Hour schedule, could theoretically take down the whole Grid of North America!
The attacks could be very simple, such as blowing up a bridge used by the railways to supply coal to these important parts of THE GRID. Some plants
keep a small supply of fuel (coal) on hand, but if the bridge that is attacked is very close to the plant, then it could disrupt the future operations
of such a target causing a failing of THE GRID when the plant is taken offline.
Since such an attack would enable a rerouting of THE GRID before the actual plant stopped operating, THE GRID could sustain an attack such as this
easily. However, multiple attacks around the United States might not be so easily rerouted by the managers of THE GRID.
If an attack was on equipment within the plant need to feed the coal into plant, then an immediate interruption would result and possible topple THE
GRID. The least effect would be a large area within THE GRID would lose power for quite some time.
Attacking the first stage transformer platforms at the plant or near the plant are soft targets that can be easily taken out and disrupt the output of
such a large plant for shorter period than say a bridge attack. However, as soon as the plant cannot deliver DEMAND through its main feeder wires,
then a large area will be OFF THE GRID.
Each area in THE GRID usually has a three-stage source to feed THE GRID. The plants mentioned above are the main suppliers of DEMAND in a large area.
THE GRID will also have a PEAK PLANT that operates when demand is at its highest point in the day. A third plant is a seldom-operated plant that is
primarily a backup plant.
While attacks at these lesser targets could occur, since they have much less security, etc. They will not reek much havoc overall on THE GRID.
One of the most vulnerable types of plants in THE GRID are the Nuclear Power Plants. These plants need large amounts of water to cool the reactors.
The FBI has recently found out that DARK TERRORISTS (Al Qaeda, etc.) have been taking diving courses in the United States. Both GREEN and DARK
TERRORISTS will soon attack the large feeder pipes that supply the huge amounts of water needed to cool power plants.
Underwater explosives will be used to disable these large intake pipes into Nuclear Power Plants. This will cause an almost immediate shutdown of
major plants that feed THE GRID!
GREEN and DARK TERRORISTS both want the same thing. That is the failure of western civilization. The GREEN will commit their acts out of respect for
the planet and the future of all species of life upon the planet. The DARK are motivated by religious zeal to stop the spread of western culture into
areas of the planet that have live virtually unchanged for millenniums. Western GREED promotes the trappings of the west all around the world.
Bringing a way of life that is viewed as against the LAW OF GOD to those that head DARK TERRORIST movements.
Western media paints these figures as people that hate western freedom. However, the truth is these DARK FREEDOM FIGHTERS merely want to keep their
cultures and civilizations as they have been for millenniums. As the GREEN wish to preserve the resources of the planet, the DARK wish to preserve
their civilizations threatened by western ways (which is nothing but decadence to the DARK).
One person with a small amount of explosives can take a large area off of THE GRID for many hours if not days by attacking the main feeder lines into
any populated area. These areas usually have only one major feeder path into the populated area. These are the huge electrical wires on the outskirts
of a city. Inside the city these huge feeder lines are stepped down into smaller lines.
An attack on the outskirts of a populated area with a small amount of explosives could severe temporarily the lifeblood of THE GRID within a large
Once these power lines are cut due to blasts that topple the structures carrying such lines, there will be no power to the population dependant upon
the power it consumes from THE GRID.
It could take hours if not days to repair such damage. If multiple breaks in the line are made several miles apart, then the down time will be longer
since the workers that could fix such problems cannot handle multiple breaks at the same time. Workers from other areas of THE GRID might have to come
in to help. Electrical wires can easily be repaired, but the structures needed to suspend them in the air take time to rebuild, etc.
THE GRID has thousands and thousands of miles of high-powered wires crisscrossing the country to feed largely populated areas. These wires are the
most vulnerable targets in THE GRID. However, such attacks will do little to impact THE GRID.
The next major modern utility of the west that is very vulnerable to attack by terrorists is the communications system including the phone system and
Internet. A long-term interruption in power will take down large parts if not all of the Internet and Phone systems in the USA. Electricity is needed
to run these systems. While temporary backup power supplies are in place to handle a short-term outage, these systems cannot operate for long periods
of time without electricity from THE GRID.
A relatively small amount of buildings are the hubs for these systems. An attack upon the fiber optic lines close to these buildings can bring down
large segments of the phone systems and Internet.
These buildings have very little security so a small assault team could take over these buildings and by using a small amount of explosives they could
do great harm for long periods of time to the central computer rooms that control these systems.
Maps of the backbones for the Internet are available on the Net. These maps are similar if not identical to the backbone of the phone system. While
cutting fiber optic lines close to the buildings that house the computers that maintain these hubs could do drastic short term harm, the only long
term damage will be if an attack is made upon the main control rooms within these communication nerve centers.
Satellite dishes in areas close to these hubs are very easy targets for terrorists to hit as well.
There are only a few telecommunication and Internet access giants in the United States. So terrorists will eventually make attacks upon the key
buildings of companies like AOL, Earthlink, World Com, etc.
Small security teams that guard these buildings could be easily over taken by a small well-armed and trained assault team. Many hostages would be
easily taken as well so that will allow plenty of time to damage the infrastructure of these companies while local and federal police try to negotiate
for the lives of the hostages not realizing the main goal of the terrorists are to cripple the control rooms that provide the ability to communicate
to the west.
While physical damage to control room computers will do much harm to the ability of the west to communicate, such systems will be eventually put back
on-line and large teams will be used to safe guard these buildings once major attacks are done and the weaknesses are exploited.
Stealth attacks upon the computers that operate these systems will be made in the forms of computer viruses from outside the physical location of the
buildings that house these computers. Insiders who are either sleepers of terrorist groups who became educated in the west in computer science and
work for these companies or even employees of these companies who are sympathetic to the ideological goals of the terrorists will sabotage these
computers with viruses from inside these buildings as well. As long as these computers are available to access internally in the buildings are on
networks that can eventually be penetrated, computers are an open vulnerability of the communications system of the west.
The transportation system of the west is very open to simple terrorist attacks that could cripple movement of goods in the west for long period of
times. There are only a handful of nationwide interstates in the USA. All of these roads are unguarded and open to terrorist attacks. Small amounts of
explosives can take down key bridges all around the United States crippling delivery of goods and services.
Multiple attacks on bridges near a key target bridge on a major interstate highway could result in there being no bridges to cross large rivers for
hundreds of miles. This would cause road and rail movement of goods to have to travel many hundreds of additional miles to avoid segments of the
interstate taken out by explosives.
It is very easy to take out a major bridge that thousands of trucks use each day to transport goods and materials in the west. The bridge would have
to be rebuilt and this could take many months. Again, if such bridges or even tunnels are hit along with alternative bridges near the interstate
target, it could result in there being no bridges for hundreds of miles to cross major waterways.
The interstate system was built after a complex rail and highway system already existed in the United States. So most major interstate bridges are
close to the original highway system that was built decades before the interstate was in that area.
An example of how few bridges or tunnels control all access to large urban areas is New York City. The George Washington and Verrazono bridges control
all bridge traffic into New York City. The GWB controls northern traffic through Harlem and the Verrazono controls southern access to New York through
Brooklyn. Two tunnels control access to Manhattan Island directly, the Holland and Lincoln tunnels. Without these four access points into New York
City the world’s so-called greatest city becomes landlocked. The only way off the Island of New York would be ferryboats. It would be easy to disable
these boats as well. A single vehicle packed with explosives taking a ferry ride could sink these boats.
New York understands how vulnerable they are to attacks at these points since on 9/11 access to all these bridges and tunnels were closed. There was
no escape from New York City on 9/11.
The west will also could be subject to bio-terrorism attacks. Drinking water supplies could be attacked. Either a chemical or possibly a natural agent
will be used to activate the cryptosporidium virus that lies dormant in much of the water supply of the west.
Designer versions of old viruses such as Polio and Small Pox may be unleashed upon the west. Introduction of disease carrying animals and even insects
will be used to upset eco-systems. The West Nile Virus Mosquito and the Snake Head fish are two such examples. The simple importation of a few
mosquitoes infected with Nile Virus has caused a widespread infection of the west in a few short years. The introduction of a few unknown species of
predatory animals such as the Snake Head fish can cause long-term ecological harm to the west.
Insects that could greatly harm the bountiful food supply of the west will be introduced to cause much harm to the food supply of the west.
These are the ways that several dark terrorist groups could start to attack western civilization. The infrastructure of the west is wide open to
simple attacks that could cripple THE POWER GRID, Telecommunications, Internet and Transportation systems of the west.
The ultimate terrorist attack upon the west could be the detonation of a portable suitcase nuclear device or a tactical nuke.
One small nuke in a major city of the west such as Washington DC or New York City could bring a virtual collapse to the western way of life.
Overnight, real estate value will be worthless in urban American cities. So the wealthiest Americans would have worthless penthouses in cities no one
wants to live or work in due to vulnerability of a nuclear attack by terrorists.
The stock exchange would be closed for a long period of time if the attack was upon either New York City or Washington DC.
A mass exodus would occur of city dwellers trying to escape major urban targets of terrorists. Martial law will be enacted to keep city dwellers in
cities. Chaos and panic would permeate the west. Civil liberties would disappear overnight as the west becomes one giant police state.
It is no secret that up to 100 suitcase nukes are missing from the old Russian arsenal of tactical nukes.
Oil rich Arab nations have bought these devices on the black market from the Russian mafia.
These Arab nations are just waiting to be attacked by the west.
What's the thought's on this people?
