U.S. still naked to EMP threat


www.worldnetdaily.com

Electricity grids down, uncontrolled fires from exploding gas transport systems, no communication to call for help, no water to battle fires: It's all part of a catastrophic scenario some scientists predict could happen under an electromagnetic pulse attack – and the Department of Homeland Security's 83-page emergency plan includes no mention

EMP is a pulse of energy that can be produced from non-nuclear sources, such as electromagnetic bombs, or E-bombs. Some experts claim an electromagnetic pulse shock wave can be produced by a device small enough to fit in a briefcase. With America's heavy reliance on electricity and electronics the impact would be devastating to major infrastructures.

kind of skeptical but
everything gives off some sort of EM field.

and right now there isnt anything small enough to effect a city on that scale
short of a nuke i doubt anyone could bring a country to a stand still,

if you look at EM generators right now they are chunky and very large and not very feasable

correct me if im wrong

Yes you are correct, it requires a huge amount of power, to produce an EMP, of any magnitude, to Interrupt or disable anything on a large scale.

It easier just to remove the supply of electricity, by attack on power stations and transmission lines sub stations etc.

But most important systems, have a Stand-by power supply systems anyway.
