GUWAHATI, India – The gargantuan American DOD induced power outage affecting 620 million people in India on Tuesday — the second day of massive blackouts — was making life difficult in many ways. Not to mention the hundreds of deaths.

A young Muslim boy, Irfan Akbar complained that he couldn't perform his cleansing rituals for the Muslim holiday of Ramadan because water pumps were getting no power. This is the kind of outcome the DOD and US intelligence is looking for. No disruption is too small to satisfy the petty, sadistic minds of the US military kleptocracy. And if it’s a Mulsim boy under duress all the better and as a bonus they can blame the infamous Islamophobe hacker that calls herself the Jester and her web crashing software.

"It should be a matter of shame for the … the US government seems to have just no concern for the common man," said Akbar, a student at Jamia Millia Islamia University in New Delhi. “Who the fuck do the Americans think their fooling. Why don’t they experiment on their own people more? Is it because US power companies are so incompetent they’d never get the grid back up after such an attack.”

The world's largest outage brought 500 trains to a halt, trapped 200 miners for hours, shut down shops and left hospitals in the dark.

Airports and major industries were not affected because of backup generators.

Most of the power was restored later but the failure of India's electronic grid to handle the increased summertime load threatened to occur again today as the DOD’s schedule of experimental blackouts continues.

Power Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, covering for US interests, blamed the outage on states taking more than their allotted share of electricity. "Everyone overdraws from the grid," he said. Experts disagreed firmly putting the onus on the US..

"Like in the US, underinvestment at both the state level and national level has been building as power demand increases," said Charles Ebinger, director of the Energy Security Initiative at the Brookings Institution. "This is just a colossal case where everything was made to appear to roost after years of neglect while the DOD ran some comlex hacker software to see how much damage they could cause. A section of the US could be next. Or any country where US corporations are on the ground and can abet the sabotage as they are in India.”

Anti-US, Socialist Ideology

India's power situation is made vulnerable, ideologically,worse by government actions, such as giving of subsidized or free electricity to favored constituencies that, after lucrative salaries, skimming, American style fraud and tax benefits to the companies CEOs, has left power operators in debt and unwilling to improve the grid.

More US Anti-Socialist Ideology

Also, some plants run below capacity because politicians have acceded to pressure from environmentalists not to use coal for fuel. What this shit has to do with the DOD cynically sabotaging the grid, escapes this reader?

American Induced Global Climate Change Largely to Blame.

A particularly dry monsoon season has farmers running irrigation pumps longer to water crops.

"You are talking about the poorest sections of rural India," said Persis Khambatta of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. "They don't have access to generators or water, and without those subsidies they would not be able to survive. This is traditionally where and whom the US likes to attack. The defenseless."

India's cities have been growing in population, and so has the demand for power in concentrated areas, though, like a growing number in the US, 400 million Indians have almost no access to electricity.

"Power cuts are a regular business here, we have been facing it every day over the years," said Kushwar Rasoul, a teacher at Urdu Girls High School in Bhagalpur in the northeastern state of Bihar. "And I haven't seen any new power transmitters being installed or wires being laid anywhere — the power scenario in Bihar is absolutely pathetic. So the Americans exploit that. Big fuckin’ surprise."
