    Full of what things, and what does this have to do with Iranian warships?

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Try a little harder to follow the conversation and reading the links, I provided.

    Things=transformers.
    Iranian warships a joke but snipers sneaking into the country and shooting out critical grid hardware, not a joke.

    It was a simple question with a simple answer. There's no need to be a dick about it.

    A reasonable concern. In fact, our grid is vulnerable in so many different ways that every time I think about it it surprises me that the lights are still on.

    Apologies if I misread you.

    Our government and electrical corporations are a bunch of dumb cheapskates. Even a moderate, solar flare could knock out the power for months. All they have to do is shield these transformers with some insulation from an EMP.

    They have to get nukes first. Then they have to figure out how to load one onto a missile. Then they have to set sail. Get back to me then.
    Meanwhile, they're seeing how close they can get to US waters without getting ****ed with.

    There's no reaction that doesn't make us look weak.

    Frankly, it's the same thing whether the boats are there or not there, so there's no reason to react.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Oh, it goes way beyond that. That huge east coast blackout back in 2003 was as bad as it was because the grid is something like 20 or 30 years behind the times.
