Panic in New York: The New York Stock Exchange Shuts Down

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

 

A strange set of events hit New York City yesterday. 

The New York Stock Exchange had to shut down – to suspend all trading activity – because its entire computer system mysteriously stopped working.

Then United Airlines was forced to ground every one of its airplanes worldwide – because its entire computer system mysteriously stopped working.

Immediately after that, the Wall Street Journal website mysteriously stopped working.

At this same moment, over 2,500 people in Washington, DC mysteriously lost power.

Also at this time, the New York City subway system suffered an unexplained shutdown – with trains stranded inexplicably, for long periods of time. 

These strange incidents did not go unnoticed. They were reported in major media outlets.

Rumors circulated about a cyber attack on our nation’s infrastructure

Something obviously happened but no one – least of all the U.S. government – will give a public explanation. 

Whether it was a cyber attack, a system linkage, or mere “coincidence” is not the main point. 

The point is that the U.S. is not “invincible.”   It is not the ultimate “power.”  It may not even be the safest nation to be allied with. 

Puerto Rico should take note of this, when it considers its own political future.
