They would not need much nuclear material to make an EMP bomb. Just one such detonation over the United States and that would fry enough electronics to:

1. Shut down our transportation system
2. Shut down our food production equipment
3. Shut down all communications for thousands of miles
4. Shut down all heating and air conditioning control systems.
5. Shut down all refrigeration control systems
6. Shut down all aviation—airplanes in the air at the time of detonation would fall from sky.
7. Destroy satellite communications.
8. Destroy the electrical grid by burning up all transformers.
9. Destroy all computers.
10. Destroy all electronic time keeping (watches, traffic lights, etc).

Should I go on?

Just one detonation and we would not know who delivered the weapon. All we would know is it was terrorists.

Yeah, um how does that bomb get bombed by chance? And, like we wouldn’t have seen it coming?
