A probably not-yet-true conspiracy theory that probably eventually will be.
My dad always wondered why the IRA didn’t target overhead cable pylons and transformer stations back in the eighties, would have been way more disruption without the negative PR of civilian deaths, and there’s too much infrastructure for the cops to be able to protect
In an enormous country with no demonstrable border control, why is it so hard to imagine a foreign power, let's say Russia, wanting to mess with us in retaliation for messing with them by supporting Ukraine? Probably a lower probability that they wouldn't strike back in some way.
I'm weird. I'm creative, whenever some media pundit says "I cannot imagine how they could have done that. my mind starts imagining it. Other things besides. This makes me think.
It sure is a good proof of concept for future attacks on infrastructure, and gets the main actors in the culture war to continue to throw vitriol at each other.
Not saying it was a foreign actor but if I was one, this would have been a great opportunity.
I'd like to know how precise or imprecise the attacks were, if specific high-priority equipment was targeted or if was just a 'ruin everything' sort.
> bullet hosed several banks of transformers with 7.62x39 fire, which for the uninitiated means either an AK-47 or common American clone.
Coulda been an SKS, too.
wasn't that where all the election records for that area were kept as well?
Hold onto your Johnson.
No, the other one.
