    The result of an EMP attack on the U.S. grid system has been well known for years. The entire U.S. grid system of the U.S. could be protected from both EMP and a Carrington type event from the Sun for approximately 4 Billion dollars, not exactly chump change but when considering the huge amount of deaths it could prevent, well worth the money. The U.S. be on the receiving end of an EMP attack is a very good possibility. The U.S. someday being on the receiving end of another Carrington type of even is a CERTAINTY.

    I'm sure you have some data on how this is? How ISIS has the means and abilities to affect such a threat?

    The muslime in chief and his EPA are doing a much better job of attacking our power grid, attacking our coal production and our current coal power plants, attacking the oil industry at the federal level by not opening more oil and gas exploration on Federal Land, making it difficult and costly to open up new refineries. My prediction is that new laws and regulations will be enacted for our "safety"; inspired by the threat of ISIS, which will be another attack on our fuel and power production.

    What these muslime's have learned is that the mere threat of an attack will cause our bureaucrats to pass laws and stifling regulations "to save the children" that end up hurting us...without them firing a shot. But when the time is right, and we are so overcome with oppressive regulations and laws and are unable to defend, they will strike.

    FUBAR isn't it?

    come on we have been screaming for years that the power grid is a big target, and now the media starts paying attention...

    oh its because of Isis, let's face it, this is not the first "terror" group to be a threat to the USA.... so why listen to us now, we have the I told you so sympathy cards all ready to go
    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them

    Lest we forget

    4 billion dollars? I wonder how much money the United States will be giving countries that hate Americans this year? I bet 4 billion dollars wouldn't cover it, I'd say if true, it would be a very wise investment, why they probably won't do it.

    The estimate started out a 2 billion and then they doubled it because of government waste and sweetheart deals and political favors. The estimate of 90% fatalities in the U.S. due to starvation, medical problems, the weather, and civil unrest was the estimate given to Congress. Considering the amount of money that we do give to countries that hate us and other worthless government programs, it seems relatively inexpensive to me.

    By the way, Russia and China would not be severely affected by such an occurrence. They have already protected their grid system.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. ISIS = Muslim. Obama = Muslim. They work for him so why would they destroy there own infrastructure. The plan is not to destroy the country but rather the people. That means YOU.

    4billion is chump change. If that really is an accurate figure. If only my government cared about me.
