But what are the chances of such a scenario actually occurring in real life?
In light of today’s news, particularly the genocidal threats of North Korean madman Kim Jong-un with his nuclear weapons and ICBMs, what once seemed like science fiction increasingly is becoming a genuine and ominous threat to the U.S. – namely, the real possibility of an EMP attack on the American mainland.
To explain this vexing scenario as clearly and credibly as possible, defense expert Michael Maloof has written a bombshell book on how an electromagnetic pulse attack is entirely possible, and how we should protect ourselves from it, both nationally and as individuals. And today only, WND readers can get a hardcover copy of “A Nation Forsaken” for only $4.95 – a tremendous $21 discount off the normal price!
For years, scientists and other experts have warned that the nation’s electrical grid system, together with other critical infrastructures that have an almost complete dependency on electricity and electronic components, are highly vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse event, either from natural or man-made causes.
However, Congress and the administrations of previous and current presidents largely have ignored those warnings.
Events such as the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the United States, and then the devastating Hurricane Katrina that revealed vulnerabilities to those infrastructures, for a time heightened that concern. However, due to the lapse of time and a relatively calm period since those disasters, policymakers have been lulled back into complacency rather than taking preventative action against what could be the biggest threat to U.S. national and economic security in our lifetime.
An electromagnetic pulse attack on our critical infrastructures, either from an impending solar storm of serious intensity expected between 2012 and 2014 or from a high-altitude nuclear explosion, could have long-term catastrophic consequences for our society and our way of life.
A few years ago, a congressional commission went into considerable depth on those consequences to our electricity-dependent infrastructures that include not only the power grid itself but also telecommunications, our banking and finance system, our transportation system that delivers the very food and water on which our society depends on a daily basis, and the fuel needed to keep our houses warm in the winter and air-conditioned during the summer.
While these critical infrastructures continue to face such an impending crisis, Congress basically has ignored its own commission report and instead has treated the threat of an electromagnetic pulse event as a political football to be weighed against the need to establish an antiballistic missile system. Out of the debate, nothing has happened in either direction.
“A Nation Forsaken” breaks down that threat. It even outlines how our own military similarly is vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse event due to its 99-percent dependency on the nation’s electrical grid system for electricity and communications, raising the high prospect that it may not be able to function to defend the nation in its time of greatest need.
While an electromagnetic pulse event on our civilian infrastructure could be serious, it can be managed if government at the federal, state and local levels gives a high priority to undertaking preventative action to lessen its impact and enhance our ability to recover from it. Given what seems to be a perpetual gridlock in Congress, however, don’t count on it.
F. Michael Maloof is a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense.
