You need to read this post – all of it! The Blaze TV produces an investigative show called “For the Record,” hosted by a former FOX News host/anchor. This show is what 60 Minutes used to be, back when it was a real investigative show that actually broke and told the whole story and just the story – without the political editorials woven into the show. The latest For the Record was about a very real threat to this nation with which I happen to be more than casually acquainted. I actually started my education on this subject when I was in the 11th grade, when I read a Congressional report, “The Effects of Nuclear War.” We are talking about an EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) weapon, and the overwhelming evidence that both Iran and North Korea – with the covert help of Russia – have been working to develop such a weapon that could and is intended to be used against the United States. Here’s the story:
What kind of weapon could wipe out food and medicine distribution, force America into a slumber for decades, make planes fall from the sky, permanently shut down the U.S. electrical grid, sever communications systems and lead to the deaths of millions?
This threat is not science fiction. It is real. It is imminent and, if this nation does not start preparing to defend against it, it will happen. We could defend ourselves for approximately $500 Million (this is less than the annual waste in the Federal budget). We are not doing anything to prepare for this threat. If we are attacked with an EMP Weapon, and the attack is successful, it could result in between 50-80% of all Americans dying within the first 12 months after the attack.
Here are some additional links for those who want to know more about this subject (please note the sources I cited. I could have gone to the technical reports available on line, but chose to use reputable ‘main stream media’ sources instead). Please spread the word about this. We need to raise public awareness about this problem and start pushing Congress to actually do something that is within its Constitutional mandate and take steps to defend against what will otherwise be nothing but a matter of time.
