Military Warns EMP Attack Could Wipe Out America, 'Democracy, World Order'

by Paul Bedard
| November 30, 2018 09:33 AM

In an extraordinary and sobering report meant to educate the nation on a growing threat, a new military study warns that an electromagnetic pulse weapon attack such as those developed by North Korea, Russia, and Iran could essentially challenge the United States and displace millions.

“Based on the totality of available data,” said the report from the Air Force’s Air University and provided to Secrets, “an electromagnetic spectrum attack may be a threat to the United States, democracy, and the world order.”

The report, titled, “Electromagnetic Defense Task Force,” and the product of a mostly classified summit of officials from 40 agencies just outside of Washington earlier this year, is a forceful call for a new focus on preparing for either an enemy EMP attack or a natural hit such as a solar storm.

While it is focused on the devastating impact an EMP hit would have on the military, it appears to support a congressional warning that up to 90 percent of the population on the East Coast would die in a year of an attack that would dismantle or interfere with electricity, transportation, food processing, and healthcare.

Consider just some of the warnings in the report from the United States Air Force Air University and the Curtis E. LeMay Center for Doctrine Development and Education. Citing figures from the Union of Concerned Scientists, the report:
99 nuclear reactors would likely melt down without electricity to cool them.
4.1 million would be displaced from areas around the nuclear plants as the radioactive cloud spread.

minor hurricane for a week a couple of times. I can’t imagine losing it for months and months or even years as might happen in an EMP attack.

10. Difference is that with a national EMP strike, no one is coming to help you

You are on your own for food, water, power, sanitation etc.

In a storm, others from outside are coming to help. Transportation of goods and services continues. Food chain in most areas is around 4 days. Less in major cities. Cut off the power, water, and transportation and how long before people start killing each other?

to hell and the EMP would be preferred over a longer shitty life dictated by shit stain idiots.

4. There is not a lot of distinction being made here between primary and secondary effects

Primary effects are things that stop working like unprotected facilities, radios etc. Very few people will die from that.

Secondary effects would be no transportation, sewage, water, power for a very long time. No TV, radio, or Ethernet either. We would have food, water and shelter, just no way to get to the people who need it.

Bottom line is that those of you in the cities should be prepared to die slowly and painfully should an EMP strike occur.

8. City folks do not want to admit that they are vulnerable to anything.

Without food, water, a working sewer system, and without power, the cities will devolve into a violent mess in a few days.

We have never had any of these things provided for us on our home place. We make our own power and provide the rest of the necessities for ourselves.

In any kind of attack, EMP, or ground type of people attack on these services, the people in the cities are toast in a few days.

7. Iran is the greatest threat

This is why we need Trump as opposed to a USA hating Muslim like Obama as president. Obama gave these enemies billions of dollars of taxpayer money to help advance their development of weapons, which they have every intention of using against us.

The REALLY discouraging part is he still has people that will defend his treasonous acts. They are the enemy also.

15. Nothing but bluster which israel itself their fair share. Iran has attacked anyone for

multiple decades unless attacked first (iraq).

Interesting how iran and iraq are getting along just fine these days, eh?

Just a simple comparison of a fact.

Iran is building up their intercontinental ballistic missile capability for the purpose of destroying Israel and the United States, or, as they call us, "The Great Satan and the Little Satan."

Obama helped them greatly, and you both are going to cheer them on when they attack Israel, but only if you two are still around if they attack us first.

(perhaps the same time?)

Its possible, however, that Israel and/or Trump will take out their capability to strike either of us before they launch them.

They ARE being built.

They ARE being built to destroy us.

This is the main reason it was important that Trump won.

There is nothing more important than the annihilation of your country.
