DoD Report: China’s EMP Weapons Pose Grave Threat to America
See Offline, a documentary available from Reality Zone that looks, not at the possibility of an EMP attack from an enemy, but at the certainty of a mega flare from the sun
China is building specialized nuclear warheads so potent that a
single one may be enough to devastate America with its enhanced
electromagnetic pulse (EMP), according to a report the Department of
Defense (DoD) recently declassified.
Nuclear EMP Attack Scenarios and Combined-Arms Cyber Warfare, was
written by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry for a congressionally mandated
commission investigating the threat from EMPs to the United States.
report warns that future wars may look entirely different than past
wars due to people’s increasing reliance on technology. China,
alongside Russia, Iran, and North Korea, have recognized America’s
extreme reliance on electricity, electronics, and technology, and
subsequently adapted their military plans to target this dependence.
Detonation of a single generic nuclear bomb between 30-400 kilometers
above earth will create an EMP that propagates outward towards earth
with a radius of between 600 and 2,200 kilometers. The effects of an
EMP would be catastrophic and could plunge a nation into indefinite
darkness. There would be widespread destruction of computers, nuclear
power plants, satellites, phones, refrigerators, transformers, and more.
The EMP commission estimates a full 90 percent of the American population could die within a year of an EMP attack.
The threat posed by EMP is widely recognized at this point. For
instance, in 2018 alone, both the Department of Homeland Security and a
group of experts from inside the normally reticent DoD, released reports
recognizing the need for urgent action, respectively titled the
Strategy for Protecting and Preparing the Homeland Against Threats of
Electromagnetic Pulse and Geomagnetic Disturbances, and the
Electromagnetic Defense Task Force Report.
newly declassified report is startling because it goes beyond just
acknowledging the theoretical threat posed by an EMP attack. It provides
alarming and concrete details on how EMP attack is actually core to the
planning of various nations adversarial to America.
Chinese leaders consider the EMP attack to be a revolution in
military affairs, referring to this change with such names as Sixth
Generation Warfare, Non-Contact Warfare, or Electronic Warfare.
Iranian, North Korean, and Russian military doctrines closely mimic China on these points.
For instance, China’s Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) published a paper
asserting that an EMP attack could be considered the “’Pearl Harbor
Incident’ of the 21st century” and that the “United States is more
vulnerable to attacks [from EMP] than any other country in the world.”
Chinese paper explained that an EMP attack could be used to destroy,
“an enemy’s telephone network, fuel pipelines, electric grid,
transportation control system,” and much more.
One PLA textbook explains that EMP attacks can destroy a nation’s
computer networks which mean a “country will slip into a state of
paralysis and the lives of its people will ground to a halt.”
