A Sign Of Things To Come?

I got roundly slapped as a bit of a conspiracy nut when I posted about Cloud Seeding, so this story from the USA is passed on without any opinion by me, other than to wonder if it’s a sign of things to come. Going by the comments, many of those closer to the action aren’t very happy…

I saw this reported at Slashdot.

Discuss…

  1. Privatise the BBBC

    We, the Government will make laws and enforce them – it’s all for your protection.

    Scary isn’t it.

  2. I didn’t catch your post but cloud seeding is very old technology. Some of your visitors must be dinosaurs.

    Amazing footage. Don’t they have military ranges in the US?

  3. My wild guess?
    The US economy and probably every other one in the Western world is about to go down the “toilet”.
    And the government know it.
    Looks like a show of force to me.

  4. Training exercise for what , what are they expecting , also the London tube bombings and 911 where suspiciously linked with training exercises . Probably they are just sowing confusion and dismay , keep the populace uninformed , on the back foot and guessing .

    • Yep, Steve Gibson’s a good guy – lots of useful stuff on his site. As a matter of interest, I recently bought a new TPLink router, as my old Netgear one was getting temperamental. I ran the ShieldsUP! test and was NOT pleased when it failed, with several common ports open. As it would have involved some time reconfiguring it to make things secure, I took it back and insisted on a refund. I subsequently got a newer Netgear model, and that passed OK. Any decent router’s firewall should make your connection appear “invisible” to potential hackers, but an open “port” can be exploited to get in to your network, and anything connected to it.

      • I had a look at the settings in mine once , completely indecipherable to me so before leaving I took a screen shot of each page just in case I was ever tempted to tinker with it .
