I can give you more examples........take Las Vegas, Las Vegas obtains only 15% of its power from Hoover Dam and the rest from a coal burning......the power house is about eight miles from Las Vegas and it has only one railroad lane coming in and one going out......fuel in stock for only two days.

The same for grain........the grain fields are about 175 miles from where they are processed to food and the same thing goes ........ one track one way and another track the other way.

Los Angeles has a 20 days supply of fuel for electricity.......

Knock down any high tension tower and you will knock out the power for at least two states.........

And you also have the fuel depots and so on.......with incendiary tips in a .50 caliber rifle I could raise all kind of hell.

And I wont even go on about planes, bridges, subways and lot more..........

All that I would need is seven young men that I could train and the right equipment to close down the country.....   ::)

Israel makes an attempt at shutting down Iran's nuke plans
Iran takes out the Straight of Hormuz's two mile wide crude oil shipping lanes

http://www.stratfor.com/analysis/iran_threat_strait_hormuz
90% of oil shipped from the Red Sea is shut down through this choke point
and economies go into chaos if those lanes aren't timely reopened.
