Super EMP: The Most Likely Targets, Survival and Who Would Really Be Behind It

In 2001 Congress established a commission to study the danger of an electromagnetic pulse generated by the detonation of a high-altitude nuclear weapon. It concluded that while there would be no blast effects on the ground, critical electricity-dependent infrastructure could be rendered inoperable. The commission’s chairman, William R. Graham, has noted that several Russian generals told the commissioners in 2004 that the designs for a “super EMP nuclear weapon” had been transferred to North Korea.

Pyongyang, the Russian generals reported, was probably only a few years away from developing super EMP capability. According to Peter Vincent Pry, staff director of the congressional EMP commission, a recent North Korean medium-range missile test that was widely reported to have exploded midflight could in fact have been deliberately detonated at an altitude of 40 miles.

Was it a dry run for an EMP attack? Detonation at that altitude of a nuclear warhead with a yield of 10 to 20 kilotons—similar to those tested by North Korea—would produce major EMP effects and inflict catastrophic damage to unhardened electronics across hundreds of miles of surface territory. It is a myth that large yield nuclear weapons of hundreds of kilotons are required to produce such effects.

Although some analysts have dismissed the possibility of a successful North Korean EMP attack—either on South Korea or the United States—several factors could make it a more appealing first-strike strategy for Kim Jong Un’s nuclear scientists than a direct, missile-delivered nuclear strike. For one thing, accuracy is not a concern; the North Koreans simply need to get near their target to sow chaos. Nor would they need to worry about developing a reliable re-entry vehicle for their ballistic missiles.

Conventional wisdom aside, a North Korean EMP attack on the U.S. may also not be far-fetched. “North Korea could make an EMP attack against the United States by launching a short-range missile off a freighter or submarine or by lofting a warhead to 30 kilometers burst height by balloon,” wrote Mr. Graham earlier this month on the security blog 38 North. “Even a balloon-lofted warhead detonated at 30 kilometers altitude could blackout the Eastern Grid that supports most of the population and generates 75 percent of US electricity. Moreover, an EMP attack could be made by a North Korean satellite.” Two North Korean satellites currently orbit the earth on trajectories that take them over the U.S.

This is not mere theory. In 1962 the United States detonated a 1.4-megaton nuclear warhead over the South Pacific, 900 miles southwest of Hawaii. Designated “Starfish Prime,” the blast destroyed hundreds of street lights in Honolulu, caused electrical surges on airplanes in the area, and damaged at least six satellites. Only Hawaii’s undeveloped electric power-transmission infrastructure prevented a prolonged blackout. It was the era of vacuum-tube electronics. We are living in the digital age.

    I believe North Korea could do it, but I think they will start with South Korea or Japan.

    on one hand , It would be the perfect way to get rid of most of us and control those that are left. But they are taking a big chance. Those left who survive and become strong together will want to get revenge on the elite. Its going to be people like me and you that survive because we know the "shadow" government would do this. On the other hand maybe… if the good guys turn out the lights, we get rid of all the weak unprepared people and the money system crashes, BUT if the good guys do it we build a new system with money backed by gold and silver and we hunt down and eradicate every Globalist traitor who destroyed this country and so many other countries. Most our military stuff is EMP hardened.With birth comes pain.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again here: Computer hackers should get together and start working on an application that would link ALL WiFi enabled computers together WITHOUT the wired internet. In the early days of computing, we had a bucket brigade network that used the phone lines to call other computers and exchange messages across the country and world. It was slow using 28.8K modems, but it worked. Google "Fidonet". You could do the very same thing linking WiFi computers within range of each other. Another thing hackers should look into is linking computers via Lasers. In the event of jamming, a Laser can still get through.

    For many years in the UK at least all military bases/government control centers have been interconnected with a concealed infrastructure(no metal in the underground 'duct' work that contains the cable, also with no metal content)  of fibre optic(unaffected by EMP) communication that feeds into electronics installed in 'faraday cage'(Google it) protected equipment. All other essential electronics/electrics is similarly protected as a minimum. I would expect all recent military equipment/vehicles/aircraft/vessels etc to be similarly protected against EMP as it is a long known about effect. As far as I can see only the civilian infrastructure (not all as some high value systems are protected) would suffer.

    I disagree they will ever use an EMP unless they were extremely desperate as a last possible option. They need electronics (media, tv, the Internet) to push their propaganda and control usl. Cutting the power would basically disconnect them from the people. They spent way too much effort in getting us under surveillance to cut the chord and have no way of tracking us or shoving propaganda down our throats.

    That image of North Korea with no lights on at night shows their superiority. They don't waste electricity. What's the point of lighting up cities at night? Everyone in North Korea sleeps at night. All the other countries on the planet are wasting half their electricity capacity each and every day. While Americans get drunk and go bar hopping, North Koreans get good sleep. When they wake up, they study, research, and develop nuclear weapons, missiles, and secret wonder weapons that no other country has.

    Surely the chaos would be so catastrophic there would be no way back to normality (as we know it). Maybe it will be tested on a smaller scale to show everybody what it could be like. Most 3rd world countries would never know the difference anyway and life would go on as normal there.

    If the American grids were destroyed by an EMP or CME it will probably be over for everyone. Within a short time all of the about 100 nuclear plants in this country will blow up creating the American equivalent to 100 Fukushima.

    I believe those NK sats have been either destroyed or disabled a long time ago. If we had lights out we would band together and they would loose control. Also, Texas has a grid that won't go down in an EMP attack.
