America could be plunged into a nationwide blackout if just NINE of its thousands of power plants were attacked, report reveals
Federal regulators fear that the three main electricity systems for the U.S. could be entirely wiped out after a small but targeted attack
Concerns raised after a 'test run' attack on a San Jose, California electric plant where one or two people broke in and wrecked 17 towers
The culprits were never found and the area didn't lose power because the state grid was still working but experts thought it could have been practice
There are around 55,000 power plants around the U.S. but anywhere between nine and 100 would have to be attacked to ruin the system
'The entire grid could be down for 18 months, probably longer,' according to a memo to government officials

The government tries to take our guns and we take them down.

That would help the USA. Not all blacks just the "palms upturned baby makers and their pimp/studs.
