    Foreign rocket engines for North Korea: Why? For Russia, the path to a weakened China could be through a major nuclear accident in North Korea. In early August 2017, German rocket scientist Robert Schmucker published in the Deutsche Welle his opinion that North Korea´s ballistic missiles program can only exist due to transfers of Russian and Soviet rocket engines and components. Schmucker stopped short of accusing Moscow of providing Pyongyang with technology intentionally. Five days later, the New York Times published an article linking North Korea missiles to Ukrainian rocket engines. The president of Ukraine immediately issued orders to investigate...
  • North Korea Warns It May Detonate An H-Bomb In The Pacific

    Kim Jong Un issued an unprecedented threat directly to President Donald Trump Friday. In response to the president’s warning at the U.N. that the America will “totally destroy” North Korea if the rogue regime attacked the U.S. or its allies, the North Korean leader threatened to “tame” Trump “with fire,” promising the “highest-level” action against the U.S. North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho clarified exactly what this might mean. “It could be the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific,” he said, adding that he has “no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be...
  • North Korea Nuke Tests Further EMP Bomb

    North Korea for the first time this week revealed plans for using its nuclear arms for space-based electronics-disrupting EMP attacks, in addition to direct warhead ground blasts. The official communist party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, published a report Monday on "the EMP might of nuclear weapons," outlining an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack produced by detonating a nuclear warhead in space. "In general, the strong electromagnetic pulse generated from nuclear bomb explosions between 30 kilometers and 100 kilometers [18.6 miles and 62 miles] above the ground can severely impair electronic devices, electric machines, and electromagnetic grids, or destroy electric cables and safety...

    The EMP Commission was established pursuant to title XIV of the Floyd D. Spence National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2001 (as enacted into law by Public Law 106-398; 114 Stat. 1654A-345). Duties of the EMP Commission include assessing: - the nature and magnitude of potential high-altitude EMP threats to the United States from all potentially hostile states or non-state actors that have or could acquire nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles enabling them to perform a high-altitude EMP attack against the United States within the next 15 years; - the vulnerability of United States military and especially civilian systems...

    North Korea openly threatens EMP attack for the first time, changing the game BY ANTHONY FUREY, POSTMEDIA NETWORK The news Sunday morning that North Korea had launched what appeared to be its sixth nuclear test and most powerful one to date is troubling enough. But a statement from the rogue regime took things to a whole new level. The North said it had tested an H-bomb that was “a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack according to strategic goals.” This is the first time it has...

    With things heating up in the Pacific northeast, people are wondering what a potential war with North Korea means’ in the prophetic picture. Let me be upfront and state that I believe a war with North Korea will transpire, and that they are about to experience fundamental regime change. Let me be clear in saying that the North Korean regime under Kim Jong Un (KJU) will collapse through divine action. Now God may use the military, diplomatic, or economic means, but it will happen because He allows it. As a result, the Gospel will go into North Korea even if...

    For approximately the past five years, the Mainstream Media (MSM) and the Obama-administration supported research “think-tanks” for monitoring the North Korean situation have had a field day. They consistently (along with the brain-dead public’s crowds of naysayers) and intentionally understated the capabilities of North Korea. The experts in the field (such as Dr. Peter V. Pry, Admiral Bill Gortney, General Curtis Scapparotti) have not been able to be denied; however, they have been marginalized and made to seem to be “in conflict” with the prevailing, majority “view.” The “tyranny of the majority,” in this case, was needed to accomplish the...

    On Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily, Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow to discuss dictator Kim Jong-un’s unwelcome contribution to this year’s Fourth of July fireworks: the test launch of what may be North Korea’s first true intercontinental ballistic missile. “It’s unprecedented in the sense that it’s performed the feat of demonstrating the capacity to deliver a payload over longer range than ever before,” Gaffney said. “This missile flew for about 40 minutes. In this particular case, they chose to fly it almost directly straight up, and then pretty much straight back down. “It went...

    If you want to cry after WannaCry ransomware attacked FedEx in the United States, hospitals in Britain, and telecommunications networks in Spain last Friday, you’ll want to bawl when North Korea hits the U.S. with an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). Let’s not go there. Congressional reports and most security experts agree that America’s adversaries—from developed nations like China and Russia to dictatorships like Iran and North Korea—prefer to target our country with a triple threat combination of cyberattacks, physical damage and EMP. And EMP is the greatest threat of the three. A unique menace in that it can occur naturally (via...

    Aside from the 20,000 artillery pieces North Korea has, an EMP attack by the US on North Korea would render the majority of North Korea's Defense capability useless: jet fighters, missiles with any sort of electronics, communications, etc. But if a submarine is submerged, is it vulnerable to an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) and does water/depth the submarine is at limit the EMP weapon. It is possible that an EMP attack on submarines might cause it to blow up as no telling what would happen. Plus the fact the submarine might have trouble surfacing. Here is an interesting report on Global...
  • EMP Question

    I have been aware of the serious effect an EMP attack would have on our country for some time. I recently read a most terrifying book, One Second After, and am now motivated to better prepare my family for this possibility. My question regards the viability of a 1987 Toyota 4x4 truck with a 22r carbureted engine. I have been told there is a vulnerable component in the non electronic ignition system. My understanding was that old coil, distributor system was safe. I have the opportunity to purchase this vehicle and would like to be sure that it can be...

    There are many who seem to routinely poo-poo the idea North Korea can field an EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) nuclear bomb attack on America. The generally uninformed, often-lying, US media does it all the time. And apparently well meaning bloggers and posters, seem to believe they have the answers. Some of them, “seem to know more,” than even retired CIA director Robert James Woolsey Jr, and another expert, US Congressional EMP Task Force director Dr. Peter Vincent Pry. And yet, these pundits and players, don’t know. They typically concentrate on the “unreliability” of North Korean missiles, the lack of reliable...

    It’s said that an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) bomb set off at the correct magnitude and altitude could “fry” the unprotected US power grid and send America back to the 18th Century. This means no electricity, emergency services, food production or delivery, water pumping or delivery, and failure of just about anything else that depends upon electricity, motors, or computers. Millions and millions of people would flat out die within days or weeks: of starvation, dehydration, fever, sickness, riots, and worse. And there are those critics—some seemingly madcap—who poo-poo the idea entirely, saying it can’t be accomplished by either Iran or...

    TEL AVIV – While the international community and news media focus on North Korean missile tests and the country’s nuclear program, one expert warned on Sunday that North Korea may be secretly assembling the capability to take out significant parts of the U.S. homeland via an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and is the chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission. Speaking on this reporter’s talk radio program, Pry pointed to two North Korean satellites that are currently orbiting the U.S. at trajectories he...

    "North Korea missile explosion deliberate, experts sayBy Park Si-so - Posted : 2017-04-30 13:27The mid-air explosion of a North Korean missile on Saturday morning was deliberate, not a failed launch as claimed, South Korean government officials say. It is believed the North was testing a warhead explosion, an essential step toward testing a nuclear warhead explosion. "We don't believe the mid-air explosion was an accident," cable news channel YTN quoted a government official as saying. "It's believed the explosion was a test to develop a nuclear weapon different from existing ones." The nuclear-armed isolated country fired a ballistic missile on...

    Retired CIA Director James Woolsey said Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un "may have more up his sleeve" than firing a nuclear missile at the United States. "It is a little worse than that," Woolsey, 75, a former Navy undersecretary, told Don Lemon on CNN. "They can launch a satellite into orbit. "That's actually easier to do than to hit a target on the other side of the Earth. "If that satellite contains a small nuclear weapon — and it is detonated over some place, say the United States, it can be devastating to the electric grid. "So, we've...

    While the total wipeout depicted in One Second After is probably exaggerated, the effects could knock out our power grid for months, and destroy critical communications and computer systems. As former CIA chief James Woolsey recently said: If you look at the electric grid and what it's susceptible to, we would be moving into a world with no food delivery, no water purification, no banking, no telecommunications, no medicine. All of these things depend on electricity in one way or another. In such a situation, there simply is no way to rule out the possibility that hundreds of millions could...

    Amid warnings that North Korea and Iran have plans to take out parts of the U.S. electric grid through a cyber attack or atmospheric nuclear blast, the Pentagon is taking steps to both protect the nation's communications and power lifeline. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has charged BAE Systems to map a system that can detect a cyber attack and gin up an alternative communications network for military and civilian use if the grid is fried, according to Defense Systems, the online newsletter. Former CIA Director James Woolsey has been warning for years that the grid is extremely vulnerable,...
