imminence of EMP

emp-weaponI link today to an article from the website It is well worth visiting it from time to time. The article I excerpt here is about the imminent threat of North Korea launching an Electro-Magnetic-Pulse (EMP) attack on the USofA.

Surely by now you know that an EMP would eliminate electricity in our country and, pretty much, the entire civilization of ours that has evolved to complete dependence on said electricity. You will still get up in the morning and put your clothes on, but NOTHING between that moment and falling back asleep at night will be the same.

The article linked to below is about the potential threat North Korea’s military poses to EMP-ing the USofA. This is clearly not impossible. The US Air Force moved back into Cheyenne Mountain specifically citing “EMP Threat” as the primary motivator for reopening that expensive facility. Many other plans have come out from federal agencies also preparing for that possibility, or should I say probability?

I hope you are at least putting some preparations in place yourself.

On to the excerpt:

The next world war will be initiated by a first strike utilizing an EMP weapon

The foremost expert on the EMP has provided prima facie evidence before the Senate and numerous commissions attesting to those capabilities. Each day North Korea ramps up its tests and its threats. Russia and China publicly whisper their disapproval of such actions and words while taking no steps to actually stop them.

There is no timetable. The threat is real, and it is imminent. It is a matter of time before it is carried out. Do you want something more tangible? Here it is. Now would be a good time to construct the necessary Faraday cages for your sensitive electronic equipment you wish to have after a war commences. You’ll also need emergency food, water, medicine, and a stockpile of materials to defend it, hopefully in a remote location.

Naysayers and politicians have one thing in common: denial of the reality of a situation. The difference is that the first group is usually unprepared when it happens and they are ignorant of the situation (in terms of information, and this partially due to denial). The politicians and leaders are the exact opposite: they deny the reality to obfuscate their complete knowledge of the reality, and they are completely prepared for what will unfold…and those politicians and leaders are prepped and defended on your dime, in every way.

It doesn’t even take a submarine as a launch platform. A commercial tanker or freighter could launch from anywhere off the coasts of the USofA with no way at all to stop a missile from going up 25 miles and detonating a nuclear EMP explosion that, within minutes of launch, eliminates all electronics in this country, and a few minutes later, all commercial electricity… followed within a week, all semblances of the civilization we knew.

I am not convinced that North Korea itself poses a real threat. Iran, Pakistan, India, China, Russia and several others are just as, or more capable and just as, or more motivated than North Korea. As likely, given the several hundred year history of false flag events, are one or more of those using the North Koreans as the flag of choice over a homegrown event.

In case of an EMP, I doubt we will ever know. The Internet will be gone… forever.

But my finely tuned skepticism will prevent me from believing any official pronouncements without supporting evidence.
