2013 Metcalf Sniper Attack
#1
[Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQzAbKdLfW8]
On April 16, 2013, a sophisticated assault was carried out on Pacific Gas and Electric Company's Metcalf Transmission Substation in Coyote, California, near the border of San Jose. The attack, in which gunmen fired on 17 electrical transformers, resulted in more than $15 million worth of equipment damage, but it had little impact on the station's electrical power supply.

Bull's-Eye on the Electric Grid
Holman Jenkins, Wall Street Journal

There's nothing new about Americans shooting up the grid...this has been happening for a long time. (Jenkins)

Quote:"...if the implication is that more attacks can be expected, they surely can, because they've been happening for decades. One expert suggested if the assault were widely replicated around the country, it could take down the grid. Well, yes, but it would require an army. Every substation is different, and would have to scouted separately. And wouldn't such an army be keen not to give away its presence? And why, if a terrorist had dozens of trained and disciplined fighters to deploy inside the U.S., would their target be utility substations?" (Jenkins)

Nice contribution,Demon. Prudent. This is why there's an internet. For now.
    A funny:  
       In the book on the 50 caliber Barrett they brag about the gun's anti material capabilities in the hands of the u.s. marines. A "cost-benefit analysis". 
       So highly trained,indoctrinated,loyal to enslavement, soldiers can take out (2) iraqi YW531 armored personnel carriers with (2) API .50 BMG rounds. Each machine costs $600,000. 
         How can they brag about this ? Billions ? Trillions ? spent by governments (stolen money) on research, indoctrination/propaganda,weaponry,machinery,aircraft,subs,destroyers, countless lives, broken families,suicidal veterans. All in the name of protecting an enslaved society. Which obviously includes the soldiers themselves and their families. 
        I wish these soldiers would wake up and join a much more righteous cause: Nature & Human Dignity. It is worth fighting for, you guys. This "patriotism" they drill into you is all bull shit. Plus, if you want to brag about "cost-benefit analysis" you need to side with the more ethical Warriors.

After watching Jon Wellinghoff in the above video I have something to say.
  Sounds like subtle slip-ups in this video. Is this intentional ?

A question that has the potential to open up a can of worms. Why ? What do you all think ?
