Senators want NATO to target y2k : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

relevant quote:

"Sens. Robert Bennett, R-Utah, and Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., warned top North Atlantic Treaty Organization officials Tuesday that Y2K computer glitches could hurt ongoing and future peacekeeping missions.

"Y2K failures both in NATO systems and those of member nations could impact logistic support and force management," wrote Bennett and Dodd, who lead the Senate's special Y2K committee. "Y2K failures could substantially impede NATO, potentially compromising missions." "

---like all the top scrambled eggs on their hats guys do not know this. Of COURSE this is going to impede just tons of hi tech .mil toys. This is why the "use it or lose it" scenario is so IMPORTANT to consider in your preps. I fully expect militarily, at a minimum, a surprise grab of taiwan and south korea-at least an attempt. some hi tech stuff will work, some won't, and they only got a partial clue as to what will or won't. Them that's got the beans, bullets and DIESEL and numbers are gonna leapfrog a whole order of magnitude in mil power. Now the western powers are strong, but short of resorting to nukes right now, look at the war(slap)peacekeeping mission(slap)humanitarian mission in Kosovo. A MONTH to move a coupla dozen copters? Some MUD slowed them down? HUH? --my advice, get to know your shovel and mask real close like, and look at a few maps and decide if "convenient" near to a big city or base is really all that "convenient"....................
