An EMP Attack could be more damaging than an Nuke Bomb

Ex-speaker latest official to raise alarm on threat of nuclear EMP attack by Tehran WASHINGTON The threat posed to the national security of the United States by Iran was likened only to the one posed by Nazi Germany in the 1930s, by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who suggested Tehran could be planning for a pre-emptive nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack on America that would turn a third or more of the country “back to a 19th century level of development.” Gingrich made the stunning statements, which echo warning of other congressional leaders and national security experts, in testimony before a subcommittee of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee last week. He said the “extraordinary challenge that the current regime in Iran poses to the safety of the United States” requires “extraordinary measures to meet it.” “Not since the failure of the League of Nations in the 1930s to confront the aggression of the dictatorships in Japan, Italy and Germany have we seen the willful avoidance of reality which is now underway with regard to Iran,” said Gingrich. “There are lessons to be learned from the 1930s and those lessons apply directly to the current government of Iran.” Gingrich pointed with alarm at a report first published in G2 Bulletin that Iran had tested the firing of ballistic missiles from a merchant ship in which warheads were detonated in midair over the Caspian Sea rather than at a land or sea target.

    I wouldn’t be as worried about an EMP as I would be the millions of Americans that aren’t prepared for even a minor disruption in services. Things run pretty smoothly now- that wouldn’t be the case when people haven’t eaten for a few days

    @LKRTM EMP Weapons can do as much as damage as nuclear weapons and yet they are hard to trace the source which makes it much more dangerous. Google “Tesla Scalar Weapons” and you will see hundreds of informative links on EMP Weapons technology and check out the Youtube video called “Scalar Waves 101″ and also the Youtube video called “Tesla Weapons”
