Conservative blogger Bob Owens speculates
about a campaign of domestic terrorism, in which "lone wolves" and small teams of gun owners mount dispersed attacks on electrical infrastructure, to shut down the power grid around liberal cities or states.
How many days with partial power or no power, how many nights in the dark, would it take before the local economy collapsed in the targeted area? Insurgents could cripple a city, region, or state, without ever firing a bullet at another human being.
Progressives seeking to undermine the Constitution seem to think they hold all the cards. I would warn them that they are not remotely prepared for what will happen if they attempt to cross Constitutional boundaries and natural rights.
It could be a cold, dark winter.
Not to be outdone, his commenters enthusiastically join in:
As I and many others have pointed out – take out the power, take out the water pumps, drop a couple of key highway bridges with thermite and the cities become death traps within 72 hours.
Do that to 50 major liberal cities and there is simply no way that the Federal government would be able to respond.
Self-organizing groups would know this and would act without central direction. No rebel HVTs to take out.
But on the other side of the scale, the elected officials are all HVTs for the rebels. And there are at least 30,000,000 potential snipers aiming for about 5,000 of them. That’s going to be challenging.
I believe it’s going to get very, very ugly. And sooner than anyone expected, sadly enough.
Nice, eh? What you're seeing there is the creation of an environment for breeding future Timothy McVeighs.
