US Navy Seals have said it is a carbon copy of how they would carry out such an operation.

Thanks for letting me know.
The secret’s safe with me. I won’t tell anyone.
I remember way back in the 60s or maybe early 70s. William F. Buckley mentioned how vulnerable we are to terror attacks on our power grids, reservoirs etc. He used a term for it which I have forgotten.
It is amazing how little we actually have suffered.
Or anyone else with a brain. Why sneak into a place when rifles can reach out more than a mile? Also, I think the DC snipers were a trial run. Watch and see.
” He used a term for it which I have forgotten.”
He probably used a term that I would have had to look up in the dictionary.:-)
He was fantastic.
Caveat-former SF here :)
I don’t think this is the correct word but it was something like “Flow Technology”.
He was probably too smart to use such a simple word tho.
And gel their hair
This was a well planned attack and not the actions of some random nut. My only question is why did they only use high powered rifles? Wouldn’t some type of explosive be more effective? Imagine the havoc if they had been armed with RPGs.
This is nothing mkre than the same BS I have observed for 30 years.
The lines between San Jose and Morgan Hill, even as far south as the MDF or CO in Salinas have been cut by vandals every couple years.
The Metcalf power substation has been similarly vandalized.
The lines in the Oakland are also cut for a variety of reasons related to vandals and backhoes.
There really isn’t anything to be alarmed about on this issue, in this area.
I believe these same areas were attacked around 2006/7 at which time I took an interest in ham radio but, it’s happened many times before.
Oh, and the circuits are not hidden. The right of way diagrams are online. You can Google them.
I won’t say where as I am bound by agreement but, they are publicly accessable.
However, as always, Be Prepared
Maybe some transformer company or union electrical workers decided they needed some extra cash.
“Wouldn’t some type if explosive be more effective?”
The question answers itself....
napy janet of the infamous DHS said it WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!
Then she quit.
Looks to me like the false flag team BOOTED THEIR ROUND.
Government ops in the UNITED STATES.
See it goes to show you. THIS GOVERNMENT FAILED
Spoken like a true Green Beanie. Wasamatta? D-boys turn ya down?
Kinda related and funny as hell!
Warning some harsh language.
They would fail?
I don't know about you, but I don't play anywhere near substations lest they reach out and touch me. May we be more vigilant in regard to those who would physically harm our infrastructure than we have been with those who would redefine our Constitution.
I LOVED listening to him. He ALWAYS used a word I had never heard of before.
When getting interviewed he was asked if he had EVER taken public transportation. He said no. He was asked, "Never?" He answered, "Well, everyone has a lacuna in his life."
Lol. Whaaaaaa? I did look it up and it's a great word, 100% appropriate for his meaning.
Lacuna (pl. lacunas or lacunae) may refer to:
Lacuna (manuscripts), a missing section of text
Lacuna (music), an extended silence in a piece of music
Lacuna (linguistics), a lexical gap in a language
Lacuna (law), the lack of a law or legal source addressing a situation
Lacuna (histology), a small space containing an osteocyte in bone or chondrocyte in cartilage
Lacuna (comics), a fictional Marvel Comics superhero The Lacuna, a 2009 novel by Barbara Kingsolver Lacuna, Inc., a fictional company in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Lacuna, a character in Xanth by Piers Anthony
Lacunary function, in mathematics
Jessie Lacuna, a Filipino swimmer
Lacuna (film), a 2012 film
Breaking news! After the attack on the electric Grid, NERC, FERC, BERT and ERNIE will find some Reliability Coordinator guilty of something.
Called in at the last possibility to share in the blame.
He was also a pretty good writer of fiction. I have his book “Red Hunter” about the McCarthy era. Gives a different view of McCarthy than you get from the regular media.
“The lines in the Oakland are also cut for a variety of reasons related to vandals and backhoes.”
Will leave it at that.
Do they always cut the telecom lines before the vandals go after the power lines? Do they use spotters and determine ranges and best shooting positions before they vandalizes these lines? If they do then you guys must have some very sophisticated vandals and that would worry me just as much.
Do reAl terrorists shoot at a sub station?
I get your viewpoint but, hope you understand myeexperience and how I arrive at mine.
This almost like a naturally occurring weather experience
there are reasons why....
No Pi$$ contest meant, if you mean that this might be pratice for a ‘flase flag’ I am in agreement that is certainly a good possiblity.
But this wasn’t a bunch of bored ‘yutes’ nor was it a group of drunk ‘rednecks’ and it wasn’t some gang bangers looking for respect or to mark their territory.
Someone put some thought into this. They purposely ran with a cheap and simple plan, because those are the ones that usually work. ‘James Bond Dr. No’ plans usually fail or are found out. As I have reminded people before look what was accompished with some plane tickets and some box knives.
We’ve found in the past it has been disgruntled contractors(employees) or Union guys.
I’m not ready to jump on the false flag scenario for this.
Again, 30 years of experience in this field.
Early 90’s and I work for a little company that wholesales wireless backup to Splint(yeah Splint. I have reasons dating back to 1984 why we call them that) ATT and a few other companies.
Constantly heard about cuts through ATT & Splint and we’d call em, show them our routing, hook em in with a partner company “MFS”, who co-lo’d in the same office suite(a plexiglass window demarcated our distrubution sites) and these companies were already interconnected to MFS or we could find paths at various telecom hotels or CO’s.
Maybe there was a false flag but, it seems lame to cut some fiber down one manhole. I can think of better ways than that on those same routes.
I’d light up the MDF, some DLSAM’s and blow up termination blocks, pour gas on them and have a cigarette.
Cutting a fiber line is more of an annoyance anymore.
We got machines that put em back together.
As for using a substation for target practice?
Wouldn’t it be more fun and completely more damaging to make your own chaf from tin foil and blast a bunch of that all over?
More like some drunk or retard.
From the Internet: The Redhunter: A Novel Based on the Life of Senator Joe McCarthy by Buckley, William F. (Dec 19, 2009).
I might buy this book. Buckley was such a good writer.
Did you like the book?
Yes it was readable. Not great but pretty good. Although it was a novel it did give a bit of history.
I was a history minor (U.S. and European history) in college. I still have that same interest in it.
History is so very, very, very important in that is explains WHO we are and WHY we are the way we are. How important is that for us to know? [Rhetorical.]
BTW- The average Seal isn't considered Teir-1.
If an insurgent wanted to make a quick announcement that his group was operating in the area, this is an easy way to do it.
