North Korea may possess, or may be in the advanced stages of developing a Super EMP weapon. To ascertain an opinion of what may really be happening there, look into what they have been doing and what they are doing, rather than what others say they are not doing. Some agree that a sufficiently high altitude EMP burst could bring down the electrical high-tech infrastructure and power grid of the continental 48, resulting in the eventual deaths of up to 80% of the U.S. There are a number of high level reports that have been generated which discuss the issue of EMP and its potential impacts on America, including the following.
Power grid failure scenarios and the high altitude EMP (HEMP) threat is not science fiction. The justification for North Korea (and Iran) being a non-threat is from the false notion that North Korea has not successfully miniaturized nuclear warheads for missile delivery, that they are intending to develop higher yield warheads for conventional destruction, and that they are pursuing a nuclear missile warhead. North Korea has already mastered miniaturization and is already armed with nuclear missiles. A Super-EMP warhead is a nuclear weapon specially designed to produce an enormous burst of gamma rays that generates an extraordinarily powerful electromagnetic pulse, capable of destroying even the best protected electronics, thereby paralyzing military forces and blacking out power grids and collapsing critical infrastructures everywhere–across an entire nation the size of the United States. Apparently, one of the signatures of a Super-EMP weapon is that it has a very low explosive yield, just several kilotons because the weapon is converting the energy of the nuclear warhead into gamma rays.
In 2012, a military commentator for the People’s Republic of China told a Hong Kong journal that North Korea has Super-EMP nuclear warheads.
Russia has something called the Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS), that would use an ICBM like a Space Launch Vehicle to put a nuclear warhead into orbit, like a satellite. Thus, North Korea already possesses an ICBM and poses a mortal nuclear threat to the United States, and to all nations on Earth–right now. North Korea, during the successful test of its ICBM on December 12, 2012, orbited a satellite weighing 100 kilograms (about 200 pounds).
As terrible as this sounds, I believe there are too many other factors at play that point to their continued open threats as saber rattling. They dont hate your freedom, they hate your tyranny, your rape of their country and people, by your military. On the other hand, and politics aside, I believe there is merit to consider the apparent capabilities of NK (and perhaps soon Iran). This particular article actually focuses on the possibility that we are failing to recognize the true intentions of their (NK) nuclear development plan.
The media continues to assume that they are attempting to develop conventional nuclear weapons, whereas people like Vincent Pry are indicating that they are not. I believe that the threat or mention of EMP goes over the head of most people due to the science-fiction sound of it. If NK launches a nation destroying EMP there is no way China, Iran or Russia are getting out unscathed. Funny how I just watched the new Red Dawn and you posted this, I think it’s highly possible for them to hit us with an EMP but we would still wipe them from the face of the earth, they would not likely invade us like in the movie since there are those 300 million guns floating around the US, and we would be pissed off with no electric! The very day that they put that satellite into orbit, I immediately thought of it as a potential EMP weapon. Now North Kore HAS launched ” a satellite or some other orbiting device” that passed over California 1 hour after the Super Bowl with nothing the US can do about it! Survival blog topics for a life of preparedness and risk awareness; emergency and disaster or threats thereof.
A nuclear EMP is a very real threat, given what we know about the Iranian and North Korean nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. Devices capable of subjecting transformers and other critical infrastructure to localized, but destructive, levels of EMP can be built from readily available equipment. The April 2013 attack on an electrical substation near San Jose, California demonstrates both the vulnerability of our physical grid infrastructure as well as the fact that terrorists also have been thinking about multiple ways to attack us. In fact, we know that in 1859, a massive solar flare that came to be known as the “Carrington Event” (after the astronomer who explained what happened) struck the earth and generated fires in telegraph offices as well as extraordinary northern lights displays. Because everything in modern life now requires electric power, the 1859 event was nowhere near as catastrophic as the same kind severe geomagnetic storm would be today.

The most devastating threat is posed by an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, and a former member of the congressional EMP commission says both the North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs are focused on taking out our nation’s power grids. You have to have an idea of just who to nuke unless you just want to nuke everyone who you think may have done it.
Other countries know that our nuclear subs would still pose a retaliation threat with such a weapon.
If they did that and we did use our subs, so what the damage would have been done, and it would send our main land back to the 1800’s and guess what, no cars, no lights, no way to keep food, and what can goods turn into a target for looters.
Richard Fisher, a China military analyst, said EMP warheads are likely to be an option for China’s new DF-21D anti-ship ballistic missile for the purpose of attacking large U.S.
It is also suspected that North Korea may be developing electromagnetic pulse weapons or bombs that could take out power grids — not to mention military and civilian electronics. As these weapons are developed further, the risk continues to increase that one day they may be used. The trouble is civilian infrastructure ie: water, power, transportation, communication normally are not protected.

Cheep effective weapons,been studing this for quite some time would probably kill 90% of all americans within the first year read one second after great book. I understand you guys would want to prepare for an EMP disaster, but you are not taking all things into account. There are currently something like 61 commercially operating nuclear power plants in the US with a total of 99 reactors that need to be cooled. We know from the Fukishima disaster, just how far radiation can spread from one single plant. It is not in the best interest of the Russians, Chinese, or the rest of the world to turn the entire planet into a toxic cesspool of nuclear radiation. The Russians and the Chinese are not stupid, the real likelihood that anyone will use such weapons is remote. Not to mention the fact the US maintains hundreds of military bases around the world from which to retaliate, should the continental US be destroyed. And last but not least, nuclear armed US Navy subs, could bring swift vengence should an attack of this nature ever occur. With that said I know your are willing to live your life as you see fit, As are all those out there that have 3 days of food on hand, I totally respect that.
After all, if a threat such as this is real, we will likely not hear about it from our political establishment.
An EMP can be caused by a natural event like a severe solar storm or a malicious act using a weapon like a high-altitude nuclear burst. General Ronald Burgess, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that North Korea has weaponized its nuclear device into warheads for ballistic missiles. One design of a Super-EMP warhead would be a modified neutron bomb, an Enhanced Radiation Warhead (ERW) because it produces not only many neutrons but also many gamma rays.
If the russians came to your country to rape your mother, pillage your house, kill your children, would you not be of want of their annihilation?
China doesnt lose anything if NK is wiped off the face of the earth but they have a great deal to gain and once it has happened they no longer have NK to deal with as a distraction. Most people cannot comprehend how a device like this could entirely destroy us, and indirectly kill the majority of our population due to our modern way of life and its dependencies. If NK was to put one into action, an we were to respond, then all of the major players would get into the action. It would happen I know, but to be honest I think the real threat is going to be Joe citizen. Both countries have demonstrated advanced capabilities to create a functioning nuclear warhead as well as to build and test the ballistic missiles that might be used as delivery vehicles for such weapons. While the damage would not be anywhere near as devastating or widespread as a nuclear EMP device might cause, the ease of acquiring and assembling parts obtainable from a local electronics shop means that terrorists have a relatively easy way to cause significant damage to local communities. Assailants who were never apprehended attacked the Pacific Gas and Electric Metcalf substation with automatic rifle fire on the night of 16 April 2013. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reports that cyber attacks on the electric grid system are increasing in both frequency and sophistication. Were such a solar storm to strike the earth today, the damage would be in the trillions of dollars, but worse yet, societies all over the world would be devastated.
The Coalition aims to raise awareness to the national and international threat of EMP as well as pass legislation to strengthen the grid.
The Coalition aims to raise awareness about the national and international threat of grid vulnerability, and encourage the steps needed to neutralize it. We know that from the EMP commission because, in their open source-military writings, they describe using a nuclear weapon to eliminate the United States as an actor from the world stage by means of an EMP attack,” said Dr.
3 well placed warheads detonated over our nation would immediately knockus back to the 18th cetury and effectively remove us from the world scene. The elderly, the disabled, the ill, and children would die and guess what, no hospitals or clinics.
Peter Vincent Pry, a former CIA nuclear weapons analyst said that a May 2009 round of tests conducted in North Korea, appear to have included a “super-EMP” weapon, capable of emitting enough gamma rays to disable the electric power grid across most of the lower 48 states of the United States.
They also have developed battlefield mortar rounds, that when fired and floating to earth by its parachute, EMP energy is reflected downward by the underside of the parachute, resulting in a cone of disruptive-destroying electronic energy snuffing all electronics within its area. Although they do not inflict direct physical destruction as a conventional explosive, the follow-on effects could be just as destructive to our way of life, and result in even more deaths than otherwise.
Aside from the gridlock on highways, it would be a running battle with locals defending that food. 1st week, tough going, 2nd week, neighbors asking for items, 3rd week, neighbors demanding you share, 4th week, they take annthing & everything you got! I prep, and believe most here also prep for hundreds of other reasons also, from Economic Crash, Weather related disasters, Hyper Inflation, and so on down to just running out of fuel for the truck.
I do remember a good friend of mine in SD last winter without power for 3 weeks, no generator or heat in their home, cost them thousands to repair the frozen pipes and everything that was ruined. National experts have concluded that consequences of a natural or man-made EMP event could be long-lasting, continent-wide and cripple the U.S. With a seemingly outrageous assertion like that, one might be foolish to outright ignore it without at least a reality check or risk assessment.
While many may agree that such an act of War would bring on mutually assured destruction to the aggressor, many would also agree that some of the aggressors, terrorists and rogue states in this world are not of sound mind, at least according to our own perceptions and definitions.
A Super-EMP attack would inflict maximum damage and virtually ensure a world without America.

Instead of using the ICBM to lob a warhead on a more accurate arcing ballistic trajectory, the FOBS would loft the warhead into a partial orbit. North Korea and Iran have made clear in their threats that they wish to take down the United States. These threats are manipulated and downplayed by our own government and their willing accomplices in the press and elsewhere. They do not care about consequences because they do not believe that the consequences will effect them.
The utter destruction of their enemies plus their own annihilation would send them to the 100 virgins as martyrs. Most homes have less than a weeks supply of food and a large majority of people carry little to no cash. Firing more than 100 shots altogether, they knocked out 17 transformers and, even though electric officials were able to avert a blackout, the damage took 27 days to repair. Such attacks come from a variety of different sources, including nation states and sub-national terrorist organizations. It is only a matter of time before one of those flares hits the earth straight on with exactly the same EMP-type of effect as if it were a nuclear bomb.
In fact, eleven different studies conducted or sponsored by the federal government over the past decade have concluded the same thing: unless steps are taken – and soon – to secure our electric grid, we risk catastrophic consequences which include horrific loss of life, widespread destruction of property, and complete societal breakdown. I’d think biologicals would be much easier, cheaper, and would retain the infrastructure yet disable the enemy. It concludes that China may consider the employment of HEMP against the Taiwan electronic infrastructure or against a U.S.
They have the potential to inflict destruction to electronic infrastructure which directly affects the lives of society who depend upon electricity for survival.
Most people in developed countries (USA for example) could not survive (literally) for very long without electricity. The season is vital to when an EMP would hit and most likely would be timed for the end of summer and growing seasons so more would perish. Examples like this support the notion of having a very well stocked supply of food – much more than the average preparedness-minded pantry.
North Korea and other nuclear weapon states are using modern 21st Century technology to develop their nuclear weapons program, and get help from each other and from China and Russia. This nation would degenerate into warring factions and I don’t pity the poor liberal, gibmethat or politician in that time.
There will be ( if it takes out the whole grid)millions of starving people roaming around looking for food.This is were the real threat will come from. Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at the time, called the attack “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the U.S. The officia; report that the Pentagon put out some years ago, estmates that 50 to 80 million would die in the first year. But if it’s to bring the country to its knees and isolate it, then EMP would be much quicker.
I’ve always considered this for a worst case scenario to have enough preps to get through at lease 2 full growing seasons. Plenty of tanks(umm our word for ponds) with water and fish stocked, just make sure you don’t cross hairs with the owners. I personally believe that living prepared is a smart choice and I personally refuse to run to the store every time the Ketchup bottle runs out. An EMP can paralyze, perhaps beyond recovery, the national critical infrastructures (power, communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water) that sustain modern civilization and the lives of the American people.
I hate to think that I will be shooting my neighbors to protect my stores and family but it may come to that. What a great world we’ve made for ourselves when we have a choice of weapons of mass destruction, a veritable candy shop of annihilation.
If you HAVE to grow your own food, that means more garden space is required and new garden space usually doesn’t produce very good results the first year or two.
Turn your natural gas off, the electric panel off, the water meter off, OK, see whats left. We will not be able to move without permission until Martial Law is lifted because of the crimes being committed.
I really don’t have a lot of things in my camp that will be effected much by the EMP, I will still have my weapons, food sources and water so the T-V and PlayStation will be junk anyway. Even the healthy will find it hard to make it due to the pills that have used for so long just run out.
We don’t need an AR15 to kill just a sword and a shield killed millions and now we have more than one means to kill millions in one shot!
I hope that when TSHTF your ready to get back to OLD SCHOOL and start fresh and new because it will take a long time for any country to recover from an EMP attack. If the EMP strike is launched from a steam ship off the Gulf coast, we will have no idea WHO launched it, and therefore there can be no attribution-of-attack.
We aren’t nearly what we were 15 years ago, or forty years ago, when we were at our zenith.
