Complacent MoD Warned Of Space Risk


news.sky.com

A space attack by a hostile country or terrorists could bring down the UK's power supply and the threat should be taken more seriously, the Ministry of Defence has been told.

If a nuclear device was detonated 500 miles above the earth, it could generate an electro-magnetic pulse which could wipe out electricity and telecommunications.

The Commons Defence Committee has accused the MoD of being "complacent" about the risks and wants it to ensure the UK's infrastructure could withstand an at

I really hope we don't have another 'Carrington Event', like the article says, there is a 91% chance the UK would be left without power for more than 2 months!

Scary thought not having ATS for that long! LOL

And as for the threat of a nuclear attack from another country in space, that has got propaganda written all over it, they are just trying to make us scared so we will let them introduce more and more police state 'terrorist' laws! IMO.

I think you hit the nail on the head that it is propaganda , but I think it is has to do with Iran developing nuclear weapons. Planting seeds in the minds of people to justify war with Iran perhaps ?

Very probable. No one is impervious to psy ops, which really suck if the attacker is determined.

The MoD is incompetent full stop, they continue to cut back on the armed forces yet they could not withstand an invasion from most countries within the UN and to top it all off they continue to support various conflicts around the world and would deploy to Iran should that kick off.

Look CNN reported Iran is developing a missile with a 60000 mile range.

To destroy the uk they could explode a nuke over us.

we must invade iran quicly and destroy their weapons of mass destruction as SOON as possible.

Remember they don't value life like we do.


All they want is is their delusional 72 virgins in heaven orgy cos their ignorant, illiterate village wives are so frigid in bed from being treated like abused cattle.

This is why so many mosloms are frustrated and jealous after seeing liberated white women doing advanced responsive sex in porno films while moslom wives lie in bed like passive lumps of wood.

Osama had a vast collection of porn under his bed.This why they are obsessed with death.

I am willing to be parachuted into iran and wearing a beard disguise will pretend to be a security guard and access their nuke production and destroy by short circuiting the power relays.

Oh lovely. So the next major solar flare resulting in major geomagnetic impacts will be blamed on terrorists.



These guys are really fighting for their budgets, aren't they?

The MoD may well be. However much it pains me to defend MoD though, your off base with the rest of you post.

Outside the superpowers nobody can realistically invade us.

The MoD has to deal with the budget the politicians give it.

Supporting various conflicts round the world is the fault of the people we elect not the MoD. They do what they are told.

Why would they need 60000 miles' range? That's nearly 2.5 times around the world.

i hear the MOD spend £4 billion on 9 early air warning planes.4 billion not 4 million.

once the 9 planes were build they then spend anther £200 million on destroying them because it would cost 9 million a year to run them!


sounds really retarded to me.

i mean they could just parked the planes in that plane parking desert in USA.



I hear they also bought military helicopters which can't be flown in cloudy weather!

This is true.

sounds very retarded to me.

i hear they have ordered 2 AIRCRAFT carriers but all the sea harriers have all been scrapped and they will not have any aircraft for the AIRCRAFT carriers.

that is really stupid.who ARE these people?

can we have their photos to look at?


They seem to be REALLY REALLY REALLY retarded to me.What went wrong?
