Warning says Iranian E.M.P. SCUD could result in the defeat of our military forces


www.worldnetdaily.com

Bartlett said experts have warned that such an attack \"might result in the defeat of our military forces … the degradation of infrastructure could have irreversible effects on the country\'s ability to support its population.\"

I have always suspected that a EMP blast in Iraq or the U.S. mainland could allow Iran or any other lesser power to inflict massive causalities to US troops/Citizens. The article states that an EMP blast could result in the defeat of the US military? That might be pushing it....any comments?

I think a EMP blast would effect the militaries GPS systems.The US uses this as an invaluable tool in pinpointing targets for their air strikes and enemy troop movements and such.Yes i think that can very well minimize the fighting capability of US forces and disrupt seriously infrastructure on the homefront.

Most US military technology is shielded from EMP. You can thank the Cold War and the fear of atmospheric nuclear blasts for that.

An EMP blast in a warzone would do little, if any damage to our ability to fight effectively.
Congress has done a much better job of that so far, thank you very much.

As the poster above stated i would have thought a lot of the major infrastructure would have been protected from an emp pulse with thing's like faraday cages? i know a lot of the companies in dockland's in the uk had their backup server's ect moved to a former nuclear shelter outside of the city and these were suposedly with these cages as well?

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett has to say those things.

He is the ranking member of the Projection Forces Subcommittee of the Armed Services Committee, which has been renamed the Seapower and Expeditionary Forces subcommittee.

How would they get their budget money if he didn't say these things?

Good point, makeitso... It is SOP to not "show all of our cards" on the world stage, as well as blatant misinformation. Causing one's enemy to underestimate your true power harkens back to the days of Sun-Tzu, and even before.

Suffice to say do not believe the hype. Iran is is no position to operate any EMP generating devices, much less nuclear generated ones. Only the major nuclear powers have that kind of global warfare capability. There is a lot of misinformation in that article and a lot of details are purposelessly being overlooked and or oversimplified. This type of threat from non major nations is not serious at the present moment... Enjoy your iPod.

It looks like WND is just recycling an old story.

We first heard about this over two years ago from them:

There are several problems with that.

1) Military equipment is "hardened" against EMP pulses.
2) Since the US military would still be fully capable, I assume it would result in the complete destruction of the Iranian military and probably its complete infrastructure.
3) It would result in the complete removal of Iran's leadership.

All the bluster from Iran reminds me of a saying I saw on a tee-shirt:
It shows a mouse flipping the bird to a bald eagle.
The Eagle has a look of he is about to eat the mouse and the saying is:
"The last great act of defiance"

Note:I don't know who to credit that saying from

Picture

Guys there really is no need to discuss this further, Iran is currently not capable of launching such an attack nor of inflicting the kind of damage mentioned. As I said before do not get caught up about a subject meant to worry and confuse the uniformed.

The US's weakness is their dependance on fighting at a DISTANCE (of a few hundred km out from in their jets and boats) and their dependance on "technology" being a Mr know it all fancy pants nation.

Considering most of US technology was British (and perhaps Alien
)anyway, I don't see what America has contributed apart from war to this world.

Yeah Iran alone would do that..
Then they would be nuked by the nukes in submarines which wouldn't be affected by EMP. Yeah sure, Iran would do that... With help from Russia and China maybe to win WW3... but alone, NO WAY IN HELL.

AMAGADE EMP ATTACK !! RUN FOR THE HILLS!

en.wikipedia.org...


how to generate an emp pulse strong enough to damage electronics

1) buy a nuke

2) launch said nuke very very high up (oh and it needs to be a megatonne nuke for best effect)

3) blow it up


or the other thing that can be used of course is a NNEMP utilising

en.wikipedia.org...


now Iran arn`t going to use a nuke for emp`ing anything - they`ll use one for hitting the ground and blowing stuff up - they might have a big enough NNEMP system - but to get one to simulate a large emp *attack* you need large generators and large emitters



ain`t gonna happen folks - nothing to see so move along

This is nothing more than propaganda. It is part of the foundation to make a case for our eventual attack on Iran. What this does it change things "from a possible threat" to someone who has the capability to destroy our military. Now they "are a threat". It is all about laying down the bricks to build your case. They did the same thing with Iraq. One piece at a time until they convinced a lot of people that Iraq was a threat. Now you are seeing the same basic game plan to make a case against Iran so we can go blow more stuff up and control a large portion of the ME.

It is just like anything else in this world. If you hear it enough times, you starts to become true and factual. Do not be shocked to see more creative ways in the coming months of how Iran is a threat. Just keep in mind when you see it, it is all being done to win in the court of public opinion.
