Data Exhaust: Time For The U.S. Power Grid To Go Down?

Let's see, now. Russian "separatists" down a passenger airline with Russia-supplied a surface-to-air missile. Palestinians are parading civilian casualties after the psychotic impunity of having used those civilians as human shields in their rocket attacks on Israel. Coyotes are making thousands of dollars a head to smuggle children across our border with Mexico. That makes at least three proponents of the argument that America needs something else on which to concentrate. Hey, how about a few teams of…wink, wink…"separatist jihadist Remember-the-Alamo patriots" with high-powered rifles taking out critical power substations throughout the United States? Take us offline as effectively as an EMP attack. Toss in a few wildfires near populated areas.

Good grief! I hope somebody is thinking a few chess moves ahead besides Vladimir Putin. Those critical power components are well known. Certainly a few governors are deploying their National Guard assets to protect the power grid. Right?

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
