Pipelines, terrorism?

Postby Archer » Tue Nov 01, 2016 9:19 am

Before I post links I want to get this off my chest.

When the pipeline leak happened earlier this year my initial though was; "These idiots need to keep this quiet! The government needs to do everything in its power to keep it quiet and move fuel as necessary! Do not advertise this."

Now we have an explosion and pipelines are down again. Again it is advertised!

The question, were both terrorist attacks?

Hey I am sorry I am a strategist (lots of Avalon Hill war gaming with a West Point grad...) and to defeat an enemy you must cripple it!

At this time I see the US as a prime target. I am not going to get into it but we need to be on high alert! We are so distracted by out internal affairs that we are not seeing the big picture.

Links!

Old Leak: http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2016/0 ... _up_o.html

A theory:

The first leak was just that a leak! We made everything public and that was the mistake. The explosion was planned and we can expect more! The question comes into play, was it domestic or Muslim. Considering the recent pipeline issues in the Midwest this could be domestic. Anywho, just saying...

Go fill up and top off regularly.

It is possible. Over the last few years there have been attacks on electrical substations in several parts of the nation. National Security specialists think that it is terrorists probing- figuring out how to take the grid out. All terrorists and decent criminals follow a terrorist attack cycle.

I try to fill my tank before hit is quarter full. I get good gas mileage. With my last SUV I tried not to go much below half.

We just got the wife the little dart (got rid of my Jeep Commander 14.7-17MPG), 35+ MPG. I get about 25-30 out of the grand marquis and the Yukon gets 14-20 depending on who is driving.

The daughter has a Jeep but that 318 is a gas guzzler! 12MPG.

My Ford Escape hybrid gets between 27-30 depending on how I drive it and whether the AC is on, or if I have it in all wheel drive.

My old Jeep Liberty was a little tank. And got 16mpg at the best. But I really liked that thing.

Yeah those jeeps are nimble and higher higher that average maneuverability for their size and suck GAS.
