There’s many malicious people out there who are actively plotting to take the United States down. While most of us are fully aware of how terrorists are infiltrating our country while posing as “refugees,” there’s an even more terrifying thing we should be concerned with that top military brass and experts are asserting is a very real possibility that can kill 75% of the U.S. population.
Several weeks ago, we brought you the disturbing story how top Air Force brass were holding intel briefings where they revealed that America’s enemies are actively looking for a way to shut our country down by using an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse Explosion). While it’s highly alarming in of itself that our military are even discussing this as a real possibility, now a Homeland Security expert is coming forward with a dire warning about North Korea’s plans, after what Kim Jong un’s satellite systems were just caught orbiting our country.
Dr Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, believes that North Korea is actively preparing an electromagnetic pulse strike on the United States which would have catastrophic results. North Korea has been conducting recons on the United States for quite some time, launching observation satellites in both 2012 and 2016. Dr Pry spoke about these via Daily Mail where they reported:
Dr Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security in America, warned that North Korea is positioning its satellites in a “nuclear missile age, cyberage version” of battleship diplomacy “so that they can always have one of them (satellites) very close to being over the United States or over the United States.”
Pry, also chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission, told Breitbart‘s Aaron Klein: “Then if a crisis comes up and if we decide to attack North Korea, Kim Jong Un can threaten our president and say, ‘Well, don’t do that because we are going to burn your whole country down,’ Which is basically what he said.”
“I mean, he has made threats about turning the United States into ashes and he connected the satellite program to this in public statements to deter us from attacking,” the doctor stated. “If you wanted to win a New Korean war, one of the things you would certainly consider doing is taking out the United States homeland itself.”
Dr. Pry went on to say that the recent North Korean missile rocket launch test looked “suspiciously like practice for an EMP attack,” after studying the missile’s trajectory, where it behaved much differently than how a warhead would’ve been tested.
This is nothing short of chilling. What makes an EMP attack unique is that it’s the perfect asymmetric weapon for state actors such as North Korea to level the playing field by immediately taking out the great technical advantage that the U.S. military possesses in just a single blow. What’s nerve-racking however is that we aren’t really sure what North Korea’s capabilities are, as their military capabilities have long be shrouded in secrecy. Via Gatestone Institute:
Even an EMP attack from a single 10-kiloton nuclear weapon — of the type now in North Korea’s arsenal — could cause cascading failures which could black out the U.S. Eastern Grid for months or years, and devastate the civilian economy. An EMP, detonated at an altitude above 30-70 kilometers, could be delivered by a short-range missile fired off a freighter, hundreds of kilometers off U.S. shores.
Last week, experts said they doubted tests of such devices in the past were largely anticlimactic, and failed to produce the widespread electrical disruption that’s been predicted over the years.
Nuclear non-proliferation expert Jeffrey Lewis said claims of societal collapse as a result of a North Korea EMP attack were ‘silly.’
The expert points to a test conducted by the US in 1962 known as ‘Starfish Prime.’
At the time, the researchers launched a missile roughly 400 kilometers (248 miles) above the Pacific Ocean to see how a high-altitude attack, which would trigger an electromagnetic pulse, would affect military equipment.
The bomb was about 100 times larger than the one dropped on Nagasaki – but apart from ‘stunning visuals,’ the test was a ‘disappointment,’ Lewis writes.
While some have claimed that Starfish Prime had dramatic effects down below, shutting off lights across millions of square miles and turning off cars, the expert says there was no evidence to support this.
Instead, just one string of street lights failed in Honolulu.
This scenario has long been played out by doomsday preppers, where a plethora of material exists on the internet that can help you and your family get prepared. An EMP attack on the U.S. would leave the country with no electricity, no communications, no transportation, no fuel, no food, and no running water, and within 72 hours, millions of Americans would be dead. While an EMP attack has long been considered a conspiracy theory by mainstream America, given the fact that Homeland Security experts and top Air Force officers are coming forward with their grave predictions, it’s time that we really start taking this possibility seriously. Our lives literally depend on it!
