I take the threat seriously.
Going to repeat this link:
PRY: North Korea EMP attack could destroy U.S. — now...
200 million americans dead after the first year. That's not nice news.
This would also strike Canada since most canadians live within 100 miles of the border.
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.
Notice it said it doesn't even need a reentry vehicle. It could ignite above the atmosphere.
Right there, 2 of the most popular things used to argue N Korea is not dangerous are debunked: they cannot strike us precisely and reentry is too
complicated for them to accomplish. With this alleged technology, they don't need to strike precisely and don't need reentry.
Not that I think it'll happen.
Keep in mind this wouldn't just be a nightmare in the US. It would be war too. Nasty.
I'm not saying that this satellite is has a super-EMP device secretly placed on it. Even if it was, I doubt it'll slip past intelligence. But North
Korea could maybe someday do it...
