For awhile now, the government has been hootin and hollering about a potential terrorist attack on our nuke plants..



poststuff2.entensity.net...

After watching this video, I honestly don't see why they think it's a problem.

This plane smashing into a concrete wall designed to protect our nuclear materials.. its going 500mph and gets vaporized...

More scare tactics from our government?

Or is there a signifigant difference with a F4 Phanton jet and a 757?

(awesome video btw)

I don't think they're worried about a plane crash tactic...moreso sabatage triggering a 3 mile island style meltdown...

Considering that chernobyl was blown apart because of steam pressure, I think everyone should be worried about this. Surely explosives of sufficient power can blast thru these defense walls. And is every plant reinforced in this way?

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission sent a confidential memo to power plants nationwide last week warning of plans for a terrorist attack in which hijackers are to "fly a commercial aircraft into a nuclear power plant." If fighter jets intervene, the plan calls for terrorists to divert the "mission to any tall building."

Perhaps the government isnt worried about it, but the NRC is?

Just seems a little premature and poorly thought out warning

See my post in this thread:

Page 1, I do the calculations to compare the force of an F-4 (pictured) to that of a 757. It doesn't look promising...an F-4 has significantly less mass than a 757.

I live about 3 miles from the Oyster Creek NP in New Jersey and for awhile they had Army guards stationed at all the entrances to the plant.

I don't know why they would waste the taxpayers money when this is one of the plants that very well could suffer from a terrorist attack by air.

Granted then, such a threat is pretty unlikely to manifest....
