The truth is we are vulnerable to terrorist macinations of everykind.
The reason is we have certain freedoms and rights.
On the other hand, totalitarian regimes of the worst most restrictive sort are likewise succeptible as well.
TheSocial/political organisation of a country of any kind can produce "terrorists"(rebels. )
There is absolutely NO 100% security.
Thus the whole thing is mostly bull# and hype to control the majority who are NOT terrorists.....
They cannot guard against all types of terrorism and will NEVER be able to.
Sure, there are many many ways of cripling the countries of the world with simple but effective means.....
But try to remember that the very terrorists need electricity as well.....
I have dreamed up all kinds of scenarios where the gov boys are virtually powerless to deal proactively with such scemes and must await the actions
of the terrorist before they can react to the attack.
Should enough police, and restrictive laws be applied to the situation wed all be cops and there would be NO freedom at all!
It would be childs play to take down the grid.
An organised bunch Armed with CRESCENT WRENCHES would be sufficient to destroy greast swaths of power lines over very difficult terrain to both
rebuild, and catch the perps.....
Think about it....shooting things is noisy and leaves clues behind......
Merely undoing the base bolts of say ten towers in a row,(perhaps on the stress side only) would bring down large stretches of lines with nobody
present to see, and it would happen(if you do it right) after the unbolter had left, and the weather got windy......
Tons of other ways to stall this whole shebang if desired,(send 25 cents and a box top) but thats no way to get the people behind you.
