If you’ve been following Global Geopolitics for a while, you wouldn’t be shocked to hear about this one, as it has been warned about plenty of times already.
(VERO BEACH, FLA) On Wednesday former CIA director James Woolsey and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry published an Op-Ed in The Hill warning that North Korea has the ability to kill 90 percent of Americans by detonating a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (EMP) over the United States.
The deaths, the two national security experts wrote, would result from the starvation and societal collapse which follows an EMP knocking out the national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructure for over a year.
“Two North Korean satellites, the KMS-3 and KMS-4, presently orbit over the U.S. on trajectories consistent with surprise EMP attack,” Woolsey and Pry wrote.
In February and March of 2015, a Congressional EMP Commission staffed by former senior national security officials from the Reagan and Clinton administrations warned that North Korea does possess the capability to deliver a small nuclear warhead by satellite to carry out an EMP attack against America.
The Commission warned that the after effects of this attack would result in the deaths of 9 out of 10 Americans.
