Why Is The US Spending Hundreds Of Millions On These Secret Israeli Bunkers?

Last year it was announced the U.S. was looking to build a secret underground complex in Israel. On February 13 a contract was awarded to Conti Corp Federal Services in Edison, NJ to complete the project. Their bid of almost $63 million came in well below the possible $100 million set aside for the project.

Conti's bid went toward building five underground levels and six above ground buildings that they have 900 days from February 13 to complete. The U.S. government then issued another request for proposal December 28 to construct Site 81 Phase II. Also in Israel, also partially underground, this project calls for up to $100,000,000 to refinish six underground facilities and some currently occupied surface buildings.

Walter Pincus from the Washington Post fleshed out the original Proposal construction project, called Site 911 in November. That nearly $63 million project awarded to Conti can be built only by workers from specific countries with proper security clearances.

When complete the well-guarded compound will have five levels buried underground and six additional outbuildings on the above grounds, within the perimeter. At about 127,000 square feet, the first three floors will house classrooms, an auditorium, and a laboratory — all wedged behind shock resistant doors — with radiation protection and massive security.

If it's Disneyland then I'm sure the kids have other things on their minds than a wedding =_=

Would you spend more than $100,000 on a one night stand? Did we mention it's with a sex doll?

Well, apparently there are quite a few people in the world who would.

Reminds me of one of the farmers in Indonesia being interviewed about the slash-and-burn haze affecting Singapore and Malaysia in the 1990s :

"Really? It is impossible, the smoke will just go up into the sky and disappear."

Same reply from the Chinese government in 3......

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

NSFs escape serious injury during grenade throwing exercise gone wrong

How did he manage to get the safety lever out of his hand? When pulling the pin, the lever should be between the thumb and the first finger, and the instruction is to "tug gently, twist, then tug gently again until the pin is out", not "jerk the pin out".

And secondly, aren't they briefed that the grenade and both hands should always be over the throwing bay, and if in doubt, drop, not throw, the grenade and get down behind the bay?

Either way, for the officer, it is a stupid move, but for a panicking recruit like that, not much he can do.

Without knowing further details, it could have been many things. Maybe in his panic, he brought the grenade back into the bay. Maybe he sneezed and pulled the pin wrongly. Maybe... well, you get the point.

What's important for now is that both only suffered minor injuries.

I suspect both of them froze for several seconds, given that the grenade exploded in mid air after throwing, if they dropped and climbed out of the bay I think it would have gotten both of them.

My story with explosives is that I once dropped a live M203 round while taking it out. Dropped onto the concrete floor then me and the sgt on duty looked at each other wondering what to do In the end safety office came over, inspected for dents and told me to fire it off.

That is the good thing. Though I don't know what will happen to the recruit - I remember the protocol is that the poor kid will be charged for negligence with a dangerous weapon despite his moment of panic.

Still, it is better than being blown to pieces and having that mixed with your officer's remains.

When the pin is released, the grenade will be armed for 5 seconds before sending 300 ball bearings in all directions. If the grenade is dropped outside the bay, the officer will throw the recruit to the ground and drop on top of his body. If it is inside the bay, the officer will throw the recruit out of it then jump on top of him.

A HEDP round is different; it is only armed when 2 things occur : it is fired from the cartridge, and the imploder pin inside triggers the second detonation sequence; that is why it has a blind range of 10m-20m (it won't explode if it is fired within that range, but it is said to be as painful as a bottle being fired from a leafblower).

I had a even funnier experience with the M203 rounds - we repeatedly dragged entire belts of 30 from the ammo stash to the range to fire the automatic grenade launchers, because it is so heavy we simply chuck the entire belt at the weapon when we reached it. Later everyone involved in "throwing the belts" signed extras for careless handling of ammunition and we were told that each belt had 5 times more firepower than a single LAW rocket.

With that much explosive, that would make a pretty big hole at the range; and the process is a pretty macabre way to dig our own mass grave.

Yes, that is why the standard instruction always go, "Drop the grenade, and the last thing you get before you die is a buttrape."

Because plenty of people's hands turn to jelly on contacting pocket artillery.

Need to drill into them that the pin doesn't matter....as long as you hold the lever down you can hold the grenade forever. I remember for mine I had to relax my grip on the lever lest my hand became numb...

Actually, according to stories by my sgts, recruits can't be charged, only sign extras.
All sgts from my reservist unit were BMTC instructors.
