The Nashville Xmas Day Bombing
Posted On Fox News Site December 29-
I have work in ATT CO, cell sites, POPs ect, for many years security was tight in the beginning (1979) but now its the honor system. This incident points out to the lack of protection for our telecom infrastructure. People can park in front of many of these locations and cause major damage. There are no guards anymore and most building are very large and have few people inside. Vandalism at these sites occur daily with no law enforcement Also, almost all equipment is made overseas so spare parts are few and far. Circuit Packs, battery cables are not stocked in large amounts. This is not limited to AT&T.
WTC Bombing – 1993
The 1993 World Trade Center bombing was a terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, carried out on February 26, 1993, when a truck bomb detonated below the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. The 1,336 lb. (606 kg) urea nitrate–hydrogen gas enhanced device was intended to send the North Tower (Tower 1) crashing into the South Tower (Tower 2), bringing both towers down and killing tens of thousands of people. It failed to do so, but killed six people, one of whom was pregnant and injured over one thousand. About 50,000 people were evacuated from the buildings that day
Eight Years Later 9/11 Successfully Knocked Down Those Twin Towers
America Can Not Afford To Defund Police Or More 9/11 Style Attacks Could Easily Happen
If there are any terrorist groups planning another 9/11 attack on American soil, not only will the Telecommunication structure be severely damaged, but many more Americans could lose their lives. The Nashville bomber’s vehicle announced in advance that it was about to blow up. What would have happened if that same vehicle was parked in the center of town during rush hour?
Each city must continue to provide the necessary funding to strengthen their police forces. Defunding the police makes no sense especially in view of the increased terrorism and street violence currently plaguing America.
Police are hired to protect and serve American cities. The men and woman in blue as well as all the first responders deserve much credit for what they do. And that includes all those frontline workers fighting the Pandemic. Thank You For All You Are Doing Now And Will Be Doing In The Future.
