Are EMPs a real threat?

I know some people who consider themselves quite expert on the topic, one having been in charge of building EMP-PROOF installations for the US Army. None of them are doing much to prepare for our region being struck by an EMP. So I should just relax on the subject, eh?

The animal mind categorizes everything in its world. This is a tree. I expect it to act like a tree. I can move by it confident it will not transform into a monster eating me up. Rocks, trees, sky, rain, sun, rivers, rabbits. bluebirds and everything in our world gets recognized, analyzed, categorized and, if it poses no immediate opportunity or threat, just passed on by with little attention.

It is the same with my EMP-expert friends. They learned it all twenty or thirty years ago, or from someone else having early EMP understanding. No threat. No value. Don’t give it another thought.

But what if you recognized The One Superpower on Earth as a threat? Do you prepare to beat them at their own game?

Even if another country’s spending on military hardware was 100% efficient, even getting close to parity conventionally would break any combination of second-tier players. Developing ways to neutralize The Great Satan’s dependence on high-tech electronics would be a crippling blow. That’s where I would put my money were I them. And they surely have thought about it a lot more than I have.

Two years ago the Russians demonstrated their ability to neutralize an electronically dependent US Navy cruiser that was posturing power on Russian turf. USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea I doubt the USofA military industrial complex has solved that vulnerability. I also doubt the Russians have stopped developing their neutralizing capabilities.

It is also safe to predict that others vulnerable to Potomac Swamp war hawks would work in similar directions. I believe we just had a demonstration in China’s front yard. The official media story describes a clumsy accident where a container ship accidentally collided with an electronic warfare US Navy ship… T-boned it, darn near sinking it.

You can buy the media propaganda if you wish, but I smelled something else entirely from the first moment I heard of it. The article below has more on the story from someone else sharing my suspicions.

Do not bet EVERYTHING that EMP gurus with 1980 knowledge have mitigated modern EMP vulnerabilities. Put some money on a future world without our electronics, and all they do for us today, including flying “our flag” over every conflict zone on the planet.

I publicly stated, on June 21, that the USS Fitzgerald was hit by an EMP. My belief is rooted in several factors which will be discussed by the end of the article. However, the foundation for my belief comes from a two-year-old declassified intelligence report.

The Chinese Make EMP Weapons a Priority

A 2015 declassified intelligence report, obtained by the private National Security Archive, provides details on Chinas EMP weapons as well as the plans for their use.

The report details how much of China’s military is developing EMP weapons that the Chinese plan to use against  targeted U.S. aircraft carriers with regard to any future conflict over Taiwan. Parts of the 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 what China refers to as the “assassin’s mace”. This  arsenal of EMP weapons allows a technologically inferior China to defeat U.S. military forces while leaving much of the surrounding infrastructure intact. It is like the neutron bomb of EMP weaponry.

The report further states “For use against TaiwanChina 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.” After I aired my opinion that the Fitzgerald was hit by an EMP, I heard from an old reliable deep cover source, as well as a new source, in which both sources stated pretty much the same story. The Fitzgerald was hit with a Chinese based EMP and that the new generation of Chinese EMP weaponry is capable of targeting a select area and take down a tank, a plane or a ship without damaging surrounding electronics.

Both sources and the once labeled “top secret ” report, revealed that Chinese military writings have emphasized the importance of building low-yield EMP warheads. The report said that future Chinese EMP weapons should emphasize developing “any low-yield strategic nuclear warhead (or tactical nuclear warheads) could be used with similar effects. The DF-21 medium-range ballistic missile was prominently mentioned as a platform for the EMP attack against a country such as Taiwan”.  Of course, this strategy has definitive applicability in its use against the United States.

According to the report, this “trump card” or “assassin’s mace” weapons that are based on new technology, has been developed in high secrecy. Trump card would be applicable if the Chinese have developed new low-yield, possibly enhanced, EMP warheads, while assassin’s mace would apply if older warheads are employed, the report said. But as stated, individual aircraft carriers would be prime targets for the newest generation of Chinese EMP weapons.

The Chinese Are Producing EMP Weapons Which Target Humans

Americans have been told by our corporate controlled media that EMP weapons will have no impact on human beings. These reports are a bold faced lie as this same report went on to detail how the Chinese have conducted EMP tests on mice, rats, rabbits, dogs and monkeys.  The results of the mammal directed EMP test results produced eye, brain, bone marrow and other significant organ injuries. It stated that “it is clear the real purpose of the Chinese medical experiments is to learn the potential human effects of exposure to powerful EMP and high-powered microwave radiation.”  The report also concluded that these human based EMP tests may have been conducted to determine safety or shielding standards for military personnel or weapons.

In conclusion, with regard to this exotic weaponry, it is clear that the Chinese plan for nuclear EMP strikes against the United States are part of Chinese military doctrine and there is also evidence that China has already developed a set of super-EMP nuclear weapons that produce powerful EMP fields, but with EMP related effects that can be contained to specific geographic locations. There is no doubt  that the Chinese are perfecting task-specific EMP weapons to a degree that is now known outside of classified circles.

The Navy Is Lying About the Fitzgerald

After speaking to my sources and reviewing the previously classified report, I have no doubt that is what the Fitzgerald was hit with.

The US Navy has presented a scenario in which we asked to believe the highly improbable scenario in which the Fitzgerald was accidentally struck by a cargo ship. This bold faced lie could only be true if the crews of both ships simultaneously had an electronic failure resulting in radar and sonar malfunctions and the lookouts of both ship simultaneously went to sleep. The Navy cover story is simply not believable.

Why Would China Perpetrate Such an Attack?

Previously, China has issued stern warnings to the US Navy to avoid the South China Sea. On multiple occasions, the ships from the US Navy have mocked the warning by sailing into the area. This time, the Chinese mean business.

China just delivered a message to the United States government that they will not tolerate any more US Navy incursions into the South China Sea. The irresistible force meets the immovable object.

China’s economy, no matter how many times they try to restructure, is failing. The Chinese government faces disenfranchised opposition from extremely poor peasants living in the outlying provinces. To add salt to these wounds, we need to realize that the conflict in the South China Sea was originally fueled by the Chinese who were  left out of a monumental trade agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Even though the TPP is dead, China’s claims of ownership of the South China Sea, which would disrupted the trade agreement, remains in place. Subsequently, Chinese foreign policy is guided by these two principles:

  1. Disrupt any resurrection of the TPP so no nation gains an economic advantage over China in its own backyard.
  2.  
  3. Isolate Taiwan geographically and militarily. Closing down the South China Sea moves China in the direction of accomplishing this kind of action. The short-term goal is to economically diminish Taiwan. The final goal is the take-over of Taiwan.

China is increasingly aggressive, almost to the point of forming a quasi-naval blockade in and around the disputed territories which are a point of disagreement between China, her neighbors and the United States. In fact, China’s actions within the last few days are clearly indicative of a nation determined to defend its claims, just ask the seven dead sailors from the Fitzgerald. The attack upon the Fitzgerald was a clear warning that the Chinese are capable of  defending the South China Sea. From the Chinese perspective, the Fitzgerald may very well have been an aircraft carrier, like the Nimitz.

Speaking of the Nimitz, the US is not to be deterred. The Nimitz is sailing to the area where the Fitzgerald was attacked. Will the Nimitz task force enter the South China Sea and dare the Chinese to start World War III?

Please take a look at the following maps. It is clear that the Nimitz could easily turn South as the US calls out the dogs of war.

The Surface Nature of the Dispute

China's rapidly growing perimeter which will protect Chinese invasion forces when they attack Taiwan.

China’s rapidly growing perimeter which will protect Chinese invasion forces when they attack Taiwan.

Vietnam, Malaysia and most of all, the Philippines are impacted by aggressive Chinese action in the region.

                                 Conclusion

Certainly, all the elements for a monumental confrontation are in play and the events are surely reminiscent of the Cuban Missile Crisis in an historical parallel perspective. I certainly hope that the Nimitz has an antidote to localized Chinese EMP weapons.
