North Korean EMP Attack Could Destroy U.S.A.

North Korean EMP attack could destroy U.S.A.

WORLD NEWS TOMORROW– USA- North Korea now has an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of delivering a nuclear weapon to the United States, as demonstrated by their successful launch and orbiting of a satellite on Dec. 12. Certain poorly informed pundits among the chattering classes reassure us that North Korea is still years away from being able to miniaturize warheads for missile delivery, and from developing sufficiently accurate missiles to pose a serious nuclear threat to the United States. Philip Yun, director of San Francisco’s Ploughshares Fund, a nuclear disarmament group, reportedly said, “The real threat from the launch was an overreaction that would lead to more defense spending on unnecessary systems. The sky is not falling. We shouldn’t be panicked.”

In fact, North Korea is a mortal nuclear threat to the United States right now.

North Korea has already successfully tested and developed nuclear weapons. It has also already miniaturized nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery and has armed missiles with nuclear warheads. In 2011, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Lt. General Ronald Burgess, testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee that North Korea has weaponized its nuclear devices into warheads for ballistic missiles.

North Korea has labored for years and starved its people so it could develop an intercontinental missile capable of reaching the United States. Why? Because they have a special kind of nuclear weapon that could destroy the United States with a single blow. In summer 2004, a delegation of Russian generals warned the Congressional Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Commission that secrets had leaked to North Korea for a decisive new nuclear weapon — a Super-EMP warhead.

Any nuclear weapon detonated above an altitude of 30 kilometers will generate an electromagnetic pulse that will destroy electronics and could collapse the electric power grid and other critical infrastructures — communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water — that sustain modern civilization and the lives of 300 million Americans. All could be destroyed by a single nuclear weapon making an EMP attack.

A Super-EMP attack on the United States would cause much more and much deeper damage than a primitive nuclear weapon, and so would increase confidence that the catastrophic consequences will be irreversible. Such an attack would inflict maximum damage and be optimum for realizing a world without America.

Both North Korean nuclear tests look suspiciously like a Super-EMP weapon. A Super-EMP warhead would have a low yield, like the North Korean device, because it is not designed to create a big explosion, but to convert its energy into gamma rays, that generate the EMP effect. Reportedly South Korean military intelligence concluded, independent of the EMP Commission, that Russian scientists are in North Korea helping develop a Super-EMP warhead. In 2012, a military commentator for the People’s Republic of China stated that North Korea has Super-EMP nuclear warheads.

A Super-EMP warhead would not weigh much, and could probably be delivered by North Korea’s ICBM. The missile does not have to be accurate, as the EMP field is so large that detonating anywhere over the United States would have catastrophic consequences. The warhead does not even need a re-entry vehicle, as an EMP attack entails detonating the warhead at high-altitude, above the atmosphere.

So, as of Dec. 12, North Korea’s successful orbit of a satellite demonstrates its ability to make an EMP attack against the United States — right now.

The Congressional EMP Commission estimates that, given the nation’s current unpreparedness, within one year of an EMP attack, two-thirds of the U.S. population — 200 million Americans — would probably perish from starvation, disease and societal collapse.

Thus, North Korea now has an Assured Destruction capability against the United States. The consequences of this development are so extremely grave that U.S. and global security have, in effect, gone over the “strategic cliff” into free-fall. Where we will land, into what kind of future, is as yet unknown.

Nevertheless, some very bad developments are foreseeable. Iran will certainly be inspired by North Korea’s example to persist in the development of its own nuclear weapon and ICBM programs to pose a mortal threat to the United States. Indeed, North Korea and Iran have been collaborating all along.

If North Korea and Iran both acquire the capability to threaten America with EMP genocide, this will destroy the foundations of the existing world order, which has since 1945 halted the cycle of world wars and sustained the global advancement of freedom. North Korea and Iran being armed with Assured Destruction capability changes the whole strategic calculus of risk for the United States in upholding its superpower role, and will erode the confidence of U.S. allies — perhaps to the point where they will need to develop their own nuclear weapons.

Most alarming, we are fast moving to a place where, for the first time in history, failed little states like North Korea and Iran, that cannot even feed their own people, will have power in their hands to blackmail or destroy the largest and most successful societies on Earth. North Korea and Iran perceive themselves to be at war with the United States, and are desperate, highly unpredictable characters. When the mob is at the gates of their dictators, will they want to take America with them down into darkness?

What is to be done?

The president should immediately issue an Executive Order, drafted for the White House earlier by the Congressional EMP Commission, to protect the national electric grid and other critical infrastructures from an EMP attack. The Congress should pass the SHIELD Act (HR 668) now to provide the legal authorities and financial mechanisms for protecting the electric grid from EMP. The Congress should enhance Defense Department programs for National Missile Defense and Department of Homeland Security programs for protecting critical infrastructures.

The administration and the Congress owe the American people security from an EMP Apocalypse. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, and served on the Congressional EMP Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA.

  1. It would appear life on earth will be hell struggling from one treat to the next. It would be easier to stop this non sense, blow such group to hell. Stop nation from issuing threats and consider those like war threats demanding action. We need Sen. Hagel to weed out stupid claims for war and inform that we will take such behaviour seriously and prepare answer. We should also tell the President time for hi/her to stop pampering people who cannot live peacefully with other and constantly complain and demand . We have no more time for trivia.

  2. Iran is ‘threatening’ America? Bullshit. Iran hasn’t instigated a war against anybody in over 200 years. This article stinks to high heaven of Zionism….

  3. Defense Contractors PR at work again for the benefit of Wall Street and the Federal Reserve Banksters…

    The MONEY should be put to better use, i.e.:

    1) Social programs for the Homeless (Veterans and Civilians),

    2) Public Education to all, and Health Care for ALL,

    3) Rebuilding-modernizing the US Infrastructure (Bridges-Highways-Railways-Ports-Airports-Protecting Exposed Shores from Hurricanes and Tsunamis-Renewable Energy, etc.). Some of the bridges are more than 50 years old, have outlived their SAFE-USEFUL life span.

    ALL ABOVE PROJECTS WILL CREATE JOBS and SAVE LIVES.

    More phony-deceitful armament programs against IMAGINARY-NON EXISTING DANGERS and EXPEDITURES to the BENEFICE of the ZION TALMUDIC MAFIA: NIET-NICHT-NADA-PAS du TOUT-SLET IKKE-INTE ALS.

    North Korea will be more bent on REUNIFICATION with South Korea than ATTACKING the USA, which N-Korea knows will be committing suicide…

  4. Hahaha.. well said. Glad to see you in the comments ra.

  5. This is less credible than Alex Jones.

    I suspect it might have to do something with VT ads running on World News Tomorrow ;)

  6. If a EMP did go off and take out America the ones behind it would be the PTB of American and Israeli Zionists. Those absolute disgusting, evil, human trash would let it happen or be the ones to do it and then blame the ROK or Iran. They have so many gigantic DUMBS all over the place and could care less about what happens to the people on the surface. The sick freaks would love all the starving, dying, murdering, disease just like they do now. They couldn’t help but be giddy during 9/11 so imagine something on a wide scale from coast to coast. The satanist and Kenites would be licking their chops is absolute evil delight.

  7. As good ‘ole Col. Potter of MASH used to say, “Horse Hockey!”

  8. The North Koreans could simply wait. There is a better chance the US electric grid will soon collapse of its own accord due to decades of deliberate Corporate neglect and scrimping, than be taken out by an EMP attack. Besides, given a choice between improving civilian Infrastructure and the re-hireing of thousands of layed off linemen or investing in some new weapons systems or bailing out corrupt banks the decision this Administration will make is obvious.

  9. Wow, Though Mr. Duff admits that truth on here is a 60/40, This is more of a Fiction then even News.

    For one thing, will all the Satellite’s around the world that are GPS related, Any (ATTACK) from N. Korea and a Peaceable Iran is highly unlikely. Since in this outlook, Both countries would be TOAST from the remainder of GPS guidance systems the US has UP.

    I also commend Iran for their continued NON-RESPONSE to all the illegal sanctions and Scientist murdered by assassinations. History has proven that HE who fires the first shot looses in War anyway.

    Instead of printing a story like this where the US with its 1000′s of Warheads would still work after an EMP or Super EMP attack, You would think that who ever posted this would do better to spend time showing the following…

    The U.S. in its HOAX war on terror has used the same Al Qaeda they have used for 11+ years whom they both Armed in Libya and Syria today. This is Tantamount to Treason. Creating the NDAA that they Daily BREAK them Laws in Arming the very Terrorist’s that the LAWS were made for.

    The NDAA instead has been turned Inwards upon the Citizen’s of America. While the Obama “Regime” has allowed American’s to by-pass that NDAA is also Supporting the very Al Qaeda DEATH SQUADS that they also ARM.

    It is hoped by MANY American’s I know that the very Weapon’s the US sends will be used against this “REGIME” in the future. Payback is a Bitch as is always noted. Bush signed the Lugar-Obama Act into law in 2008-2009 which gave the US the ability to pound the hell out of the very countries that had Man-Pad’s in a preemptive way to fight the hoax war on Terrorism. Looking at US Exports of Weapon’s this Joke continues today. Like the CIA agent in Libya’s Consultant attack who was there to destroy/disarm the very Man-Pad’s illegally sent there by the US/France.

    Yes it would be a far better PRINT of digital DATA of 101010101010101′s to highlight how the U.S. breaks its own NDAA where those in the White House should be charges and convicted for Arming the very ones who they have for the 11+ years said were killing their own Troop’s. Relative’s of American’s murdered in these Proxy Wars of those Boy’s of the USA who were killed you think would have outrage towards their own Government that is now Arming those that killed their loved ones.

    Maybe Kissinger was right? “Military Men are DUMB, STUPID, ANIMALS to be USED as PAWNS in Foreign Policy.” You can see why so many commit Suicide today in the Military or refuse to join as the ONLY THREAT to this Country comes from those inside the White House.

    Instead of supplying the needed armaments for US soldiers to fight these Proxy Wars they have instead spent BILLIONS on SSRI’s or Anti-Depressants to keep those who are held over in this perpetual state of War for 3, 4, 5 deployments as they break from US Policy to Murder ALL MILITARY AGED MALES in other countries. Reminds me of “CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER” where Mr. Druggie said of Killing his Mules kid’s, that why would he let them live so as to hunt him down and kill him for his killing their father?

    We hear of some in Congress that talk about Impeachment of Obama bit not for the TREASON in Arming the very Al Qaeda the NDAA was created for but again, Broke Daily from our OWN Government. To think they want to detain US Citizen’s when they themselves should be in PRISON or swinging from a ROPE!

    I can only imagine why Hitler’ly Clinton had blood clots in her brain. The mental stress of saying in 2005 that the video game “Grand Theft Auto” was too violent. But is A-OK with Arming Al Qaeda/Rebel’s with Arms to murder 50,000 in Libya (With NATO’s ‘North Atlantic Terrorist Organization’) help. and now the 30-60,000 in Syria. That is OK. Yes the TREASON from the White House is staggering. But not a word is said.

    While Arming Drug Cartel’s with automatic rifles and Rebel’s in Libya and Syria with ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY for the tens of thousands Murdered with them. Now they want “OUR GUNS.”

    Here is TODAY’S TOP IMAGE on GUN’S in America. ******http://k7ktr.com/images/guns.jpg

    When will REAL AMERICAN’s tire of all these LIES and DECEPTION?

  10. yep. genuine snake oil

  11. Quote (Source IISS website ‘North Korea’s Ballistic Missile Program’):

    “North Korea does not have operational missiles capable of striking the US with nuclear weapons, and will likely not be able to develop them as long as it continues its current moratorium on flight-testing. However, the history of Pyongyang’s missile development programme suggests that given the time and resources, it will be able to develop missiles with increasing range if it decides to do so. How long successfully demonstrating such missiles might take is unclear, especially since the level and quality of foreign assistance, and the status of current missile development is not known. As a result, widely divergent scenarios for the status of Taepo-dong-2 development can be constructed, and assessments of the TD-2 became intertwined with the politically charged debate over US missile defences. In one view, North Korea is seen as working hard to field a missile that can threaten the United States, which Pyongyang views as essential to undermine the US security relationship with South Korea and Japan and to deter US attacks on North Korea. In an opposing view, the TD-2 is designed more for bargaining leverage and trading for political and economic benefits than for military use. In a sense, both are probably true – by developing greater missile capabilities, North Korea can drive up the price for agreeing to restrain or abandon parts of its missile programme and at the same time be in a stronger position to test and deploy such systems if negotiations fail.”

    If you want to really get into it, you can read Cordesman’s 170 plus page report from 2011 (Center for Strategic & International Studies) here:

    http://csis.org/files/publication/110712_Cordesman_KoreaMilBalance_WEB.pdf

    Mind you, I always put a caveat up when referencing any Institute that has “Heinz 57 Varieties” on the Board of Trustees.

    But before you do that, just dip into Gordon’s artcle from November 25th, 2010, either on VT here or google – gordon-duff-iran-korea-nuclear-lies-orders-from-tel-aviv

    Save you a lot of time and probably point the finger towards Israel as the source of this leveraging disinfo bull…..

  12. Sorry, but my reading of VT on a regular basis, has indicated that whatever nuclear weapon they (N. Korea) detonated several years ago was stolen and shipped to them from Nuclear Weapons that Israel helped S. Africa develop way back when. As usual Israel was involved in the dirty details. The crux of the story was that 10 weapons were made and went missing thereafter. Britain and Israel were involved. One of the missing NUKES went (was sold to ) N. Korea, which they demonstrated in their first Nuclear test a couple of years back.

    Don’t you read VT. If so,you know N. Korea did not have the capability to make their own, or if they did, chose for whatever reason to use the one they bought, an ex-S. African Nuke, for demo purposes.

    Are we are suppose to believe they have mastered them (NUKES), miniaturized them, and made EMP weapons from them. On top of that, they have the Inter-Continental ability to deliver them, and destroy the U.S.?

    What a pant-load of crap.

    They made all this progress, all in a matter of few years?

    Give me a break. Something does NOT add-up here. Who is fear-mongering, and for what purposes? Or who is helping them and why? Either way it’s inconsistent with what else I read from here.

  13. Just like North Korea, America spends billions on weapons research while it’s citizens go hungry,( and Israel steals secrets and sells to China/Russia) North Korea didn’t develope it’s nuclear weapons, Israel sold them three, left over from aparthied South Africa.
    No wonder Iran wanted at one stage to develope Nuclear weapons, have you ever heard of Zionist America attacking a nuclear state? only weak countries like Afganistan,Iraq. If Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, do you think America would have attacked, no way.Just like now ther doesn’t seem to be any plans to attack North Korea?
    America slapped again and again by Israel

  14. I thought gamma rays were a by product of any nuclear explosion? Secondly you mention people starving in Iran and north Korea. How many people are on food stamps in the US? Thirdly from what I’m aware of Iran can’t build a nuclear device period despite what what some “experts” say. I can say that some of those experts have beautiful beach front property in Israel. I wouldn’t trust some of the iaea as far as I could throw them.

  15. The only difference that I see between World News Tomorrow and the old World Weekly news is the lack of “batboy” stories. In short, pure disinfo.

    Take this line, for example:

    “North Korea has already successfully tested and developed nuclear weapons…”

    Never mind that anyone with a brain would have worded it “…developed and tested…” That’s not just hack writing; it’s incompetent hack writing.

    More to the point is that North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests. The first was of a home-grown “device,” not a bomb, and it fizzled. The second was one of the South African bombs that went “missing” in transit, furnished to North Korea by Israel.

    If anyone has evidence of home-grown North Korean nuclear weapons, then let’s see it.

    The Korean War never officially ended. There was only an armistice, not a peace treaty. North Korea has been all but begging for a peace treaty for nearly 60 years. It’s about time for somebody to get on the ball and work it out.

  16. Ah yes …. it’s “Booga Booga” time again as the spring Military estimates are tabled in Congress. Expect this kind of thing to escalate for the next few months.
    Gordon – this is another one of your “disinfo” pieces, right?

  17. Sounds like Michael Shrimpton and his North Korean Sun We cho rants again

  18. To quote from article.. “…. this will destroy the foundations of the existing world order, which has since 1945 halted the cycle of world wars and sustained the global advancement of freedom.”

    Oh please spare us the bull… !

    Anyway, the article sounds like one of those propaganda pieces that remind you that you should be loathing Iran, usually written by someone with an allegiance to Israel. I’d like to know what it’s doing here on VT.

  19. What is so great about our infrastructure anyway?!

    If you ask me, less money on defense and more on updated infrastructure seems the route to take. This country needs some great unifying endeavor, no?

    The current reigns of power are held tightly by the hands of obsolete industry (big oil/gas, military industrial complex, etc.)

    The odds are stacked, but our needs weigh heavier than those odds. Swords to Plowshares, Gordon. Is this a possibility?

  20. If genuine then should make US take disarmament more seriously but it won’t.

  21. MEDIA = LIES

    (where are those bumper stickers when you need them?)

    Or this one I created last year:

    https://criticomblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/nbc-logo.jpg

  22. Hey Green, Aine, all. Indeed, probably not all it’s portrayed to be and, if anything does ‘hit’, whether it’s a nuke, emp or any other, it will be because it is ALLOWED to do so, if not done directly by killers in our govmt themselves. It’s all lies lies lies. All we need to see are the worldwide chemtrails spewing death metals, fungus, blood cells and morgellons to know what’s really going on.
