A congressional expert is claiming that North Korea is preparing to launch an EMP over the United States.
Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and is the chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission.
Speaking on Aaron Klein’s talk radio program, Pry identified two North Korean satellites that are currently orbiting the U.S. at trajectories he says are optimized for a surprise EMP attack.
“Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” is broadcast on terrestrial radio on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM in Philadelphia and online. Have a listen to the interview below.
What would or could an EMP do to the United States of America? Everything from a loss of cell phone signal nationwide, to a complete country-wide blackout.
EMP’s can be caused by several factors one even being by a solar flare shot directly at Earth.
An EMP attack has been theorized about for quite some time. It’s such a threat that even Russia equipped its military with what is called hardened electronics. Hardening electronics is a way to protect digital technology from an EMP attack.
The United States military has yet to publicize if it has also prepared for an eventual EMP attack.
An electromagnetic pulse could strike at roughly anytime depending on the source, it could be from North Korea, but it could also be from the sun. At least with North Korea, there would be some warning, but from the sun – the warning time would be much less if any.
Historically, the Sun has caused EMP’s, with the latest being what was called the Carrington Event, or the Solar Storm of 1859, had it been in modern times mankind would have re-entered the stone ages.
With Dr. Pry warning that North Korea could deliver that kind of a blow to the United States, it has to make you wonder why the US government and China allowed the rise of the pipsqueak North Korea.
