America’s Knockout blow would be its Power grid and that is what this ” Drill ” will prepare us for. Thousands of utility workers, business executives, National Guard officers, F.B.I. anti terrorism experts and officials from government agencies in the United States, Canada and Mexico and at least 150 companies and organizations are preparing for an emergency drill in November that will simulate physical attacks and cyber attacks that could take down large sections of the power grid.

So wait its not just the U.S that is taking part in this drill? That’s right all of North America will be running this so called Drill.  This drill will be practice for a crisis unlike anything the real grid has ever seen.

Hurricanes that hit counties are usually out of power for at least 3 – 4 days, however, Brian M. Harrell of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, known as NERC Said. “We really want to go beyond that.”

This drill is said to happen on Nov 13th – 14th  and be unlike any other drill we have seen, It will include the U.S, Canada and Mexico. And this drill will be for an event that last longer then 4 days.

Now with the Boston bombing we all know how ” Drills ” happen, so my question to you is do you think this will be just a drill of massive proportions or will it be another government controlled attack on its own people?

Sometimes to fix a country you have to tear it down and with all that has been going on in the past few months it seems that way.
