Keep in mind,we are at war with these guys and they will take as much time as it will take to get the job done,On the business radio show earlier today They had a California women on talking about this incident and she said we are wide open to this sort of attack and they can really shut us down fast if they know where to hit us.

If they did it right now we would be screwed big time in mid winter like this.

In 19 Minutes, A Team Of Snipers Destroyed 17 Transformers At A Power Station In California



Michael Snyder
The Truth Wins
February 6, 2014
When a real terrorist attack happens, sometimes we don’t hear about it until months afterward (if we ever hear about it at all). For example, did you know that a team of snipers shot up a power station in California?
Image: Sniper (Wikimedia Commons).

The terrorists destroyed 17 transformers and did so much damage that the power station was shut down for a month. And it only took them 19 minutes of shooting to do it. Of course most Americans have absolutely no idea that this ever happened, because they get their news from the mainstream media. The chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at that time says that this was “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred”, and yet you won’t hear about it on the big news networks. They are too busy covering the latest breaking news on the Justin Bieber scandal.
And maybe it is good thing that most people don’t know about this. The truth is that we are a nation that is absolutely teeming with “soft targets”, and if people realized how vulnerable we truly are they might start freaking out.
If you have not heard about the attack on the Silicon Valley substation yet, you should look into it. The following is an excerpt from a Business Insider article about the sniper assault…
The Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Smith reports that a former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission chairman is acknowledging for the first time that a group of snipers shot up a Silicon Valley substation for 19 minutes last year, knocking out 17 transformers before slipping away into the night.
The attack was “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred” in the U.S., Jon Wellinghoff, who was chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at the time, told Smith.
Evidence found at the scene included “more than 100 fingerprint-free shell casings“, and little piles of rocks “that appeared to have been left by an advance scout to tell the attackers where to get the best shots.”

If it was a real risk and real enemy combatants (terrorists) wanted to destroy and disable the grid, guess what, they would have. It's vulnerable like everything is.

It's more likely a foreign body will use technology to disable the grid, not some dumb bullets.

The point is this was a trial run,just like the 1993 WTC Bombings.

Whom ever they were had to ex poco employs or something similar. Apparently they first cut communication cables in a vault than hit the transformers right where all the oil would leak out.

I will admit there have been reports for years of transformers getting shot at but never at this level.

little piles of rocks left by an "advance scout" no wait it just appeared that way :no:. :no: did they find the beer cans? A well organized sniper would have policed his brass.
I agree, 99% of actual snipers recover their brass. This just sounds like a bunch of wannabe terrorists. :no:

Anyone find it odd that the Google Ariel pics were taken on 9/11/2012? Or am I going crazy?:blink:
