As reported by Zero Hedge and thanks to same.
"NORTHCOM Commander: 'The U.S. Homeland Is No Longer A Sanctuary'"
"Air Force General Terrence O’Shaughnessy ended a speech at the 140th National Guard Association conference in New Orleans this weekend with an ominous warning that the era of great power competition doesn’t leave the United States mainland uncontested. The U.S. 'homeland is no longer a sanctuary.'”
"According to The Military Times, O’Shaughnessy says that peer-level adversaries are probing U.S. defenses in multiple domains and that the continental United States is well within their sights."
General Terrence is [?] quite a bit behind the learning curve?
TWO OCEANS NO LONGER A BARRIER TO THE FOREIGN POWER HOSTILE TO THE UNITED STATES! HOMELAND USA NOT A SANCTUARY AND HAS NOT BEEN FOR A LONG TIME NOW!
Risk and hazard to the continental United States [the Homeland] for some decades now [going on the better part of a century] to include primarily:
1. Atomics! From 1945 onward atomic weapons as delivered by long-range intercontinental bomber warplanes. A threat even more worse since the era of the intercontinental ballistic missile [ICBM] also armed with a nuclear warhead.
2. Cyber attack! Hostile powers from a remote location able to cripple or even destroy and make totally useless critical infrastructure as it is deemed. Power plants, the electrical grid system, natural gas production/storage/delivery facilities, etc. Basic, essential and vital elements of modern society and life subject to cyber attack.
3. Street gangs! Street gangs the greatest internal security threat to the United States. Street gangs possessing that proper combination of numbers, weapons, organization, money and ruthlessness.
General Terrence is stating the obvious. That obvious however not so obvious to everyone?
