Cell Phone towers could be shut down for hours days, weeks due to a bad storm such as a tornado, hurricane or even an earthquake. An EMP burst of some type or a "Carrington Effect" (solar flare) could wreak havoc or possibly shutdown 'conventional' communications for a long time as well.
So what? An asteroid can strike your house and destroy it. A plane can hit a building. Storms can cause outages yea. Sh*t happens all the time we have no control over. You think that's news to anyone?
You're mixing apples and oranges. He was talking about a deliberate shutdown
of the cell phone system by the government because terrorists set off a bomb via a cell phone, then you switch gears and start rambling on about natural occurrences. The government ain't going to shut it down because too many people depend on it for communications, IRREGARDLESS OF WHAT SOME RANDOM NATURAL STORM MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT DO SOME DAY.
Besides, if the terrorists see that the government will shut down cell phone systems because they trigger a bomb via a cell phone
guess what? They will then decide to do the same thing again, not because they can blow up something, but to specifically cause a shutdown of the cell phone network alone.
Oh boy, yea we really want them to have that advantage huh?
Get a grip man. Stop being delusional and move on to more productive activities!
