N. Korea Boasts of EMP Bomb
Synopsis: In the wake of North Korea’s latest nuclear weapons test, which they claim was a successful test of a hydrogen bomb, he official communist party newspaper of North Korea, Rodong Sinmum, claims that North Korea has plans to use its nuclear weapons to produce a devastating EMP bomb. Kim Songwon, dean of Kim Chaek University of Technology in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, authored the article. "The discovery of the electromagnetic pulse as a source of high yield in the high-altitude nuclear explosion test process has given it recognition as an important strike method." "Our hydrogen bomb … is a multifunctional thermonuclear warhead which not only has enormous lethality and destructibility, but also can even carry out super-powerful EMP attack over an expansive area through detonation at high altitudes according to strategic goals.” Former Director of the CIA James Woolsey said North Korea is capable of orbiting an EMP weapon in a satellite and detonate it at will on any pass over the U.S. William R. Graham, chairman of the Congressional EMP Commission, has warned that North Korea’s two satellites orbiting over the U.SA. could be armed with EMP weapons. The Commission has warned that an EMP weapon detonated over the U.S. could kill 90% of the U.S. population through subsequent starvation, disease and societal chaos. The Commission has for years urged the U.S. to harden the nation’s electric grid and other critical infrastructure against EMP attack, but the electric power industry has opposed such expensive upgrades due to cost concerns. Despite the mounting dangers, a former CIA analyst, Peter Pry, says that the Congressional EMP Commission will cease functioning on Sept. unless its charter is renewed. South Korean press reports said that the next test of their new ICBM could be launched on Sept. 9, the anniversary of the communist state’s founding. Last night former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, said that the U.S. should start destroying all North Korean missile launches that have not been inspected by U.S. weapons experts. [insert]
