Diesel Generators for Data Centers

Battleship Row is a reference to eight American Battleships moored in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in December of 1941 which made it easy for Japanese military forces to destroy America’s military assets.   Placing so many Data Centers in such close proximity in Northern Virginia creates an Electronic Battleship Row and an inviting target for terrorist.  And it is an example of the same deficient military judgment from 1941.

Having so many Data centers in one location makes it easier for our military enemies  to destroy America’s military communications backbone and to create a significant public health hazard at the same time.  This is reckless beyond comprehension and constitutes colossal incompetence of planning to protect our citizens’ health and lives at the same time.
If sufficient electrical power is unavailable to power these Data centers, why are they being constructed?

Already electric power stations are being attacked please do not do this.
