Energy Infrastructure Terrorism Taking Root in Germany, Europe As Radical Activists Carry Out Attacks

Blackout News here reports on how radical activists are attempting to paralyze the power supply in Germany.

It’s already bad enough that the European power grid is already highly unstable and could collapse due to just minor disturbances, this in large part due to the shutdowns of unwanted nuclear and coal-fired power plants and the feeding in of unsteady wind and solar energies.

But now the unstable supply situation is being exacerbated by radical activists sabotaging power supply infrastructure. Blackout News reports: “For example, radical activists tried to paralyze the power supply for the Tesla plant in Grünheide. There, the Vulkan group claims to have set a cable fire in order to paralyze the power supply.”

Luckily the Tesla plant power supply attack was unsuccessful.

The Grünheide attack was not an isolated incident. Blackout News also reports: “Left-wing radical activists have also claimed responsibility for an arson attack on power cables in connection with a power outage in parts of Munich. The attack was intended to target a supplier of the German Armed Forces.”

The authorities are investigating. That attack was successful: “The cable fire left around 20,000 households in eastern Munich without electricity for more than 24 hours on May 21.”

A letter claiming responsibility for the Tesla plant and German Army attacks was allegedly written: “The primary target of this action was arms manufacturer Rhode & Schwarz at Munich’s Ostbahnhof, which we were fortunately able to cut off the juice for at least 24 hours.”

It took several days to fully repair the damage. The power outage was localized, but “vaccine and insulin spoiled in the refrigerators of pharmacies and doctors’ offices,” writes Blackout News.

The deputy chairman of the Bundesverbands für den Schutz kritischer Infrastrukturen (German Association for Critical Infrastructure Protection,) Dr. Hans-Walter Borries, sees “a new danger for critical infrastructure facilities” in Germany, which are “hardly protected”. These include infrastructure for the supply of electricity, natural gas, water supply and telecommunications. “There have already been several attacks on electricity pylons, telephone converters and telephone junction boxes.”

Experts now worry that copycats will repeat attacks and do a better job of learning where to hit infrastructure more effectively.

“There are many virtually unprotected facilities on the European power grid at which an attack would have far more serious consequences, reports BlackOut News. “It is only a matter of time before militant groups acquire the relevant information and plan attacks on a much larger scale.”

    There is a purpose. But not in individual acts. The purpose is to keep the subject of existential threat by climate change in the news and bully politicians to enact policies favored by the climate ideologues in order to minimize larger or more numerous attacks.

    The ideologues know that serious and widespread attacks on power supplies will alienate the average voter and encourage a right wing takedown of their organizations. They walk a line between not enough trouble to enact desired policies and too much to tarnish or delegitimize those policies. The problem lies in the individuals: those excited by some positive response will want to push harder and faster, especially if some other faction is being successful. Egos rise.

    Foreign governments are probably involved. It only makes sense to sow chaos in your competitors or adversaries ranks. I predict the attacks won’t stop until they go to far. Like Antifa and BLM actions in the US, support drops as disruption and damage moves into the communities who are in the position of power to effect change.

    The way things are deteriorating, it’s only a couple of years before major pushback is inevitable.

    Like with the US JBS and Colonial Pipeline shutdown recently, Biden says there is no evidence or Russian involvement, but bla, bla, bla.
    This kind of innuendo is bound to start here.
    Next door the Czech President said an investigation of an explosion there a few years ago showed an accident disagreeing with a major attempt to blame Russia now. He is threatened with impeachment! Sound familiar? Turns out that was a NATO stockpile of illegal cluster bombs.
    A meeting scheduled for Biden and Putin soon is surely the reason – it is not acceptable that the USA, Russia and China work together to solve major problems – look what happened to Trump trying to work with Putin!
    Expect major escalations. Blinken is accompanying Biden, unusually for such a meeting, means they have not forgotten Trump’s private meeting.
    Yet the best laid plans of mice and men do go awry!
