Imagine a real life coordinated attack.

SyFy Channel aired a Twilight Zone marathon over New Years. I hadn't seen it in years so I caught a few episodes. In "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street", a shadow passes over a sleepy neighborhood and everything mechanical and electrical stops working. Sporadically, operation returns to a single car or a single house, then stops again.

Paranoia, panic, and finger-pointing ensues, and an innocent man gets shot.

The camera pans to a nearby hilltop where a flying saucer has landed. The commander explains to his crewman that conquest of Earth will be easy. Simply disable each neighborhood, one by one, and the Earthlings will turn on each other and destroy themselves. Easy-peasy. (Well, the alien didn't say "easy-peasy")
