Who would they attack?
The practice is called nuclear deterrence.
It is being accomplished with a newspaper article
How big were the payloads? An atomic bomb is not light.
But I recall reading in the past couple of weeks that Iran had been meeting / consulting with N. Korea or Pakistan or some of the proliferation crowd about warheads small enough to fit in a satellite package; and also (was it the IAEA report?) that they were looking at components whose only obvious application was the non-fissionable components of a spherical compression fission device (i.e. plutonium).
NO cheers, unfortunately.
And (ugh!) Huffington-Puffington quotes British Foreign Secretary William Hague speaking to the House of Commons that Iran had been testing missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
No cheers, unfortunately.
Sounds informed, to me.
The heavy duty actions have to wait for the globalists’ choreography.
EMP attack by Iran = Glass Parking Lot paved in Tehran.
I pray it doesn't come to this.
Here will I say in my best Farsi, "AZADI!"
It goes on to briefly address the effects, EMP is one of a small number of threats that can hold our society at risk of catastrophic consequences. EMP will cover the wide geographic region within line of sight to the nuclear weapon. It has the capability to produce significant damage to critical infrastructures and thus to the very fabric of US society The Commissions chairman has testified that within one year of such an attack, 70% 90% of Americans would be dead from such causes as disease and violence. It is also highly plausible that many Americans would die of starvation due to the interruption of the national food supply.
According to the Washington Department of Health, Office of Radiation Protection, A 1.4 Megaton bomb launched about 250 miles above Kansas would destroy most of the electronics that were not protected in the entire Continental United States.
Āzādī = Persian: آزادی a Persian word, meaning freedom and liberty.
خدا ایرانیان کمک به دست آوردن آزادی است.حذف آخوندها.همه این افراد باید آزاد باشند..
The worlds first atomic bomb was detonated at the Trinity Site, in NM on July 16, 1945.
“Little Boy” (uranium critical mass device) was detonated about 1900 feet over on the city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and on August 9, 1945 “Fat Man” (plutonium implosion device) was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945.
Few people in the world knew about these weapons before they were dropped on Japan.
The original test at the trinity site woke up people 90 miles away (night time blast). But it was explained as a accident before the bombs were dropped in Japan.
