Cutting Off Water/Electricity/Food – Standard Asymmetrical Warfare Tactic

No water usually means people will have no way of bathing or disposing of their sewage, people will get pretty smelly after about 3 days. If they are cramped into tight spaces it makes them much more likely to crack. If guerrilla’s do any of these forms of disruption, it makes the government look bad because they can’t provide essential services that people pay taxes for.

1. The rebel Chinese village of Wukan, which has driven out the Communist party, has resorted to smuggling in food past a police ring of steel which has cut off its population of more than 20,000.

2. JERUSALEM — Israel warned on Saturday that it would cut the supply of water and electricity to the Gaza Strip if rival Palestinian movements Fatah and Hamas form a unity government.

3. Greeks threatened with power cuts if they fail to pay property tax

4. Israel is planning to demolish ‘illegal’ solar panels that are the only source of electricity for Palestinians in West Bank villages

5. SLEPTSOVSK, Russia, Sept 20 (AFP) – The pump at the Chechen refugee camp here stands forlorn, its handle dangling uselessly. The Russian authorities passed by two hours ago and cut off the water.

6. The Ingush refugees’ camp in Karabulak named “Sozidanie” (Creation) housing over 150 forced migrants from Chechnya was left without electricity supply. The refugees view it as an attempt to evict them.

One of the theoritical antidotes, “A space-based power system. The system maintains proper positioning and alignment of system components without using connecting structures. Power system elements are launched into orbit, and the free-floating power system elements are maintained in proper relative alignment, e.g., position, orientation, and shape, using a control system.”

At a more practical level, wikis exist which provide usable countermeasures to disasters, whether they are man made or natural.
