    By the time they are aware that an attack is underway all they will accomplish by lowering the gates/raising the drawbridge is trapping victims inside and rescue efforts outside.


    I guess this means that there will be no more kamikazi plane attacks - ever! So glad to find out that DHS/.mil has figured that out.

    L'Enfant had the plan for how to prevent the enemy/mob from getting to the gates. I just wonder if the .mil still carries grape and chain shot rounds any more.

    stay safe.

    Escape from D.C.! maybe with Snake again!
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    Maybe we'll be lucky and the plan includes the DOD blowing ALL the bridges and roads into and out of DC--ESPECIALLY on the VA side.

    There isn't much reason to physically separate MD from DC though--they are politically, socially, and philosophically cut from the same rotten, putrid, corrupt cloth.

    The best thing that the Feds could do for the US would be to COMPLETELY isolate DC from the rest of the CONUS. Have the DOD cut DC's power, communications and roads, and let them stew in their own feedback loop juices, I say...

    They've played that false flag tactic out, and it won't work anymore because too many people who fly are carrying cellphones with cameras and can document State Department officials getting the "bad guys" on the plane with explosives in their drawers...

    Oh, no, they've got something even BETTER planned. Just wait--within 6 months, you'll most likely see a new kind of staged event that will boggle the minds of the sheeple--and will be an EPIC "I told you so" for the "conspiracy theorists"...

    Super-fast inflatable plastic walls. Like suddently kiddie bouncy moon jungle gyms appear everywhere, seperating the garage into rooms about 10' x 10'.

    Grape shot, yes, its employ is an argument for the smoothbore M256 cannon and M1028 anti-personnel canister round of 1100 3/8" tungsten ball shot.

    Chain shot and bar shot were primarily anti-materiel in modern parlance, used to destroy rigging and dismast a sailing ship.

    I like this idea.
