In addition to threatening nuclear war, North Korea’s Kim Jong-un claims to have a new, non-nuclear weapon.
Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is North Korea’s latest weapon of choice.
“An N(nuclear) EMP is an abrupt pulse of electromagnetic radiation that occurs as a result of a nuclear explosion. An NNEMP is virtually the same except it does not include the nuclear component. The currents caused by these charges the atmosphere with electromagnetic waves that travel down onto the earth’s surface at super speeds hitting everything within their line of sight, sending high-voltage energy through the electricity grid and frying them, causing massive disarray.”
Tensions are continuing to run high between the US and North Korea and neither Kim or President Trump are budging. North Korea continues to push Trump’s buttons. US officials are worried that Kim will get a wild hair and just let it go. An EMP would cause substantial damage. North Korea has already flaunted that they are capable of launching these weapons successfully.
Former head of the Central Intelligence Agency, James Woolsey knows that the US is at major risk right now.
“I think this is the principal, the most important and dangerous, threat to the United States. 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.”
President Trump is doing his best to work with North Korea, but Kim Jong-un’s new set of weaponry is not a good sign.
