Some time within the last year, I read a book entitled One Second After. It told the story of a town which experienced an electromagnetic pulse; the residents were forced to live as though they were back in the 19th century -- no electricity, no communication, no modern transportation. It was a wake-up call to a weapon which terrorists or our other enemies could use against us to radically change life as we know it in America.
Now, I read this from Now the End Begins:
China Building Electromagnetic Pulse Weapons For Use Against US Naval Carriers
"Blasts thwart all electronics
'China’s military is developing electromagnetic pulse weapons that Beijing plans to use against U.S. aircraft carriers in any future conflict over Taiwan, according to an intelligence report made public on Thursday.
Portions of a National Ground Intelligence Center study on the lethal effects of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and high-powered microwave (HPM) weapons revealed that the arms are part of China’s so-called “assassin’s mace” arsenal – weapons that allow a technologically inferior China to defeat U.S. military forces.
EMP weapons mimic the gamma-ray pulse caused by a nuclear blast that knocks out all electronics, including computers and automobiles, over wide areas. The phenomenon was discovered in 1962 after an aboveground nuclear test in the Pacific disabled electronics in Hawaii.
The declassified intelligence report, obtained by the private National Security Archive, provides details on China’s EMP weapons and plans for their use. Annual Pentagon reports on China’s military in the past made only passing references to the arms.
“For use against Taiwan, China could detonate at a much lower altitude (30 to 40 kilometers) … to confine the EMP effects to Taiwan and its immediate vicinity and minimize damage to electronics on the mainland,” the report said.
The report, produced in 2005 and once labeled “secret,” stated that Chinese military writings have discussed building low-yield EMP warheads, but “it is not known whether [the Chinese] have actually done so.”' source - Washington Times"
As our leaders poke their fingers in the eye of God by promoting legislation which is abominable in His eyes and scheming to harm God's Chosen People in Israel, we should indeed be concerned about an electromagnetic pulse. I lost my power for over two days back in May during a bad storm, and it wasn't exactly fun, especially with a well which requires electricity to provide water.
