For months, North Korea has been firing long-range missiles, releasing videos of them nuking the US, and they have threatened their neighbors, our allies, regularly. They just fired a missile into the Sea of Japan.
In January, North Korea claimed they tested a hydrogen bomb and they recently posted a video of North Korea destroying the US with an H-bomb.
It is believed that North Korea proved on the night of the Super Bowl that it now has the technology to detonate an EMP directly over the United States.
In February, a North Korean satellite was detected flying over the Super Bowl. It’s the fourth satellite to have done this according to the North Koreans but the only one detected by the US according to reports. No communication signals came from it though it was allegedly used to monitor the weather, map natural resources and forest distributions, and provide data that might help farmers improve their crops.
We are very susceptible to EMP attacks which North Korea appears to be capable of launching. It would only cost about $7 billion to protect us from the threat but no one will do it. The Shield Act that would strengthen our resources is discussed each year but, remarkably, that’s as far as it goes.
Enhanced Radiation Weapons such as Super-EMP weapons are essentially very low-yield H-Bombs that typically have yields of 1-10 kilotons, just like the North Korean device recently detonated, according to Dr. Peter Pry. Dr. Pry says the weapon described as an H-bomb looks like a Super EMP warhead.
A Super-EMP warhead would be a greater threat to the United States than the most powerful H-Bomb ever built.
An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack could blackout the North American electric grid and all the life sustaining critical infrastructures for months or years, according to the Congressional EMP Commission, killing up to 90 percent of the American people through starvation and societal collapse.
Russia has said they have a Super EMP and the design elements were accidentally leaked to North Korea.
South Korean military intelligence has repeatedly warned the press that Russian scientists are in North Korea helping develop a Super-EMP nuclear weapon.
We can’t afford another Obama which Hillary has promised she would be. Our enemies are existential threats.
There are others who say this is not a real and present danger but rather a future threat. If $7 billion will take care of it, however, why not, either way?
