Looks like we just moved up to DEFCON-2 as DHS and Coast Guard shut down water access to 15 bridges surrounding the Tampa RNC, not surprised as the Black Bloc dirtbags tried to bring down a bridge in Cleveland with C-4 just a few months ago.
DEFCON 5 FADE OUT- Lowest state of readiness Normal
DEFCON 4 DOUBLE TAKE -Increased intelligence watch & security measures.
DEFCON 3 ROUND HOUSE- Increase force readiness above normal readiness.
DEFCON 2 FAST PACE- Next step to WAR.
DEFCON 1 COCKED PISTOL- WAR is imminent Maximum readiness.

The Coast Guard is establishing fifteen temporary security zones around certain bridges on the waters of Pinellas County and Tampa Bay, Florida, during the 2012 Republican National Convention, from August 25, 2012, to August 31, 2012. The security zones are necessary to protect convention delegates, official parties, dignitaries, the public, and surrounding waterways from terrorist acts, sabotage or other subversive acts to disrupt the proceedings ofthe 2012 Republican National Convention.
The Tampa Republican National Convention is expected to draw widespread protests by persons dissatisfied with national policy, foreign policy, and the Republican Party agenda. This politically oriented event has the potential to attract anarchists and others persons intent on expressing their opposition through violence and criminal activity. The convention also may present an attractive target for terrorist and extremist organizations. Current analysis indicates that some activist groups are planning maritime activities to make their political views known.
All persons and vessels are prohibited from loitering, anchoring, stopping, or mooring under or within 50 yards of either side of the designated bridges. Expeditious transiting through the security zones is authorized. The security zones will be enforced 24-hours a day for the Gandy Bridge, Howard Franklin Bridge, and Courtney Campbell Causeway Bridge.
All waters under and within 50 yards of either side of the following bridges are established as temporary security zones:
(1) The Gandy Bridge,
(2) Howard Franklin Bridge,
(3) Courtney Campbell Causeway Bridge,
(4) The Clearwater Memorial Causeway (60),
(5) Sand Key Bridge (699),
