This is awesome, maybe Fort Bliss should create a defense battallian,or bring back SDI stratigic defense initiative (starwars) to protect this great fort from attack, since it's going to get alot of attention from the Russians, and Chinese.
Dont want to scare anyone, but this build up is going to put Fort Bliss even more on peoples maps, people that someday might confront the United States
for the wrong purposes.
I'm all for it, because El Paso needs to change, and this could be ignition point.

That is correct, everybody within a 400 mile radius of EPT will be wiped out!

Here's a cool story in that White Sands Missle Range will take over for Holloman AFB Air Radar as the new F-22's as Holloman's Radar can't track them as of yet.

I know that everyone is going to get fried, but before that happens I meant for Ft Bliss to get more battalians and more research for Bliss.

We have a crappy city Council, but we have a great Fort leadership.. they have brought many of the changes here.. like the Salt Water plant as an example, never would of happened if not for the people at Fort Bliss. Loop 375 would of never happened had it not been for Fort Bliss.. thats just a couple examples.. so if anything or anyone is going to attract big business and better paying jobs its going to be FORT BLISS, not our city leadership.

Yes city leadership, but you cant hold the whole blame on just one city leadership administration, I know myself that several other administrations brought worst for El Paso, I'm not a fan of Jonathon Rogers, Tom Westfall, Fred Harvey, the other Ramirez guy, Wardy,and others, I still give mayor Cook the benefit of the doubt in all due respects given that he has stuck it out with the downtown redevelopement plan, given that he sits on a throne with three thorns sticking out of it.

Trust me dude if EP gets hit all would perish as MASSIVE retaliation by the USA would ensue . We still have tons of Nukes in our Silo's and SSBN subs.
