Not only do the North Koreans maybe have the capability, but they may already have at least one EMP hovering over America. If you weren’t too drunk after watching the Super Bowl, you would’ve heard the news that North Korea launched a ‘weather satellite’ directly over San Francisco.
There has been a tremendous amount of technological interchange between North Korea, the Russians, and the Chinese. North Korea has also been working for years in the refinement (development) of its nuclear arsenal, especially in partnership with Pakistan and Iran. In a press conference at the Pentagon on October 24, 2014 reporters were briefed by General Curtis Scaparrotti, the U.S. Military Commander in Korea. This is what the general had to say:
“I believe they [the North Koreans] have the capability to have miniaturized the [nuclear] device at this point, and they have the technology to potentially, actually deliver what they say they have.”
On March 9, 2016, Kim Jong-Un for the first time stated that North Korea had accomplished the miniaturization of nuclear warheads that are compatible with ICBM’s. Admiral William Gortney, Commander of US NORTHCOM was in front of a Senate Committee on March 10, 2016 briefing them on the potential North Korean nuclear threat. The Admiral stated it was “prudent to assume Pyongyang had the ability to miniaturize a nuclear warhead” and deliver it via ICBM that could actually strike the continental U.S.
Finally, (and the most compelling proponent of the danger posed by North Korea), Dr. Peter V. Pry, the foremost expert on EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) threats by established and rogue nations has long upheld that Iran and North Korea hold an EMP first strike as central to their current military doctrines. Pry has spent countless hours briefing Senate Investigating Committees on the dangers of an EMP strike by these two nations.
These are pretty serious reports, and as much as they are laughed at and disparaged, the North Koreans are in deadly earnest about doggedly attaining advances in their nuclear forces’ capabilities. In March of 2016, North Korea threatened that it would conduct a “preemptive and offensive nuclear strike.” The “balance” that has been made is simple, effected by simpletons, as such:
The North Koreans threaten to strike and bluster their nuclear capability. The United States responds with, “Oh, they can’t do that,” or “they don’t have the technology,” or some other such scoffing characterization.
The frightening thing about this tete–a–tete is that neither side’s leaders or elites will face any kind of danger or peril that would result from a nuclear conflagration, but the populations of both countries would suffer immeasurably. A general and an admiral have stated their belief in the miniaturization capabilities of North Korea regarding nuclear warheads. The foremost expert on the EMP has provided prima facie evidence before the Senate and numerous commissions attesting to those capabilities. Each day North Korea ramps up its tests and its threats. Russia and China publicly whisper their disapproval of such actions and words while taking no steps to actually stop them.
