OK so what do they know that they are not telling us?
Military eyeing former Cold War mountain bunker as ‘shield’ against EMP attack?May 5, 2015 at 1:02 am #40667
As we all know, it’s just a matter of time. It will happen sooner or later.May 5, 2015 at 2:08 am #40669
HUH? Norad may have moved out but it was not deserted. There again, technology from the 1960/70/80 time period is what will survive a EMP. I think the money is going elsewhere!

I am glad if govt./military is taking some steps in this regard but if only $2 billion would provide substantive improvement towards protecting the overall grid, why aren’t we doing it? That’s barely pocket change to the feds.
I agree with 74, sooner or later someone is going to take down the grid via emp or cyberwar, or Mother Nature will do it all on her own. Which part of this are they not understanding? Is it possible that they do understand it and are prepared to just let it happen? Unless they can keep the 100+ nuke plants and their spent fuel pools in the country from melting down, they won’t be inheriting the earth so to speak when they emerge from their bunkers.May 5, 2015 at 11:58 am #40679
So they’re finally reusing and repurposing something rather than just building new.
As to what they know, much of military intelligence is educated guesswork.
This is an easy solution.
Be it terrorists, a Carrington event or a simple mistake, in many respects this is the cheap insurance policy and will probably save much of the Springs economy.
As to the ancient tech, the problem is the gear is hardly compatible with modern gear and nothing works together, hardware or software.
Even 80’s gear is ancient and uses programming that few today can understand. Especially the modern generations. Go back to the 60’s and 70’s and the old legacy units and we may as well be talking about alien technology.
