#1 This would have suited me better:

Potential terrorists who breached nuclear facility security died in a hail of bullets.

#2 They protest every year. This protest was a bit more agressive in that they cut through 4 fences. What's unusual is that sensors didn't pick up them up. What's also unusual is that they didn't get shot. There was a time they would have during WWII when this entire area was verboten. It didn't even show up on maps.

These idiots never give credit to Oak Ridge as part of an effort that ended WWII and saved more than a million American lives that would have been lost during an invasion of the mainland Japan. Most likely more Japanese would have been killed during an invasion than were killed dropping the A-bombs.

#3 So its like the Dresdon protestors, who after a decade of plunging the Euro and world into a multi-million chaotic death slaughter, are upset about being boxed in the ears?

#4 At one time I was the guard officer responsible for security for a similar facility for the military. The only issue we had was how to write the SOP regarding use of force; these folks would have been staring down locked and loaded weapons moments after the first strand of wire was cut.

#5 It's suspected that the 'protesters' in this case might actually be the guards. The guard force is facing major cuts and apparently these 'protesters' knew where all the sensors were and how to avoid being seen.

So by having an 'incident' that panics the suits, they might avoid the cuts.

#6 It should be noted the security company is the same one who was supposed to handle the Olympic security this year. And the sensors did pick them up after the fence was cut.

#7 This is just retarded. If an 82 year old nun can break into Y12, then America's nuclear archipelago is f**ked. Step back and smell the sewage.

There are dozens of people who need to be fired. Right now. And more later, after the investigation.
