Excerpted From SHTFPlan: For many years, now, the U.S. has been initiating actions with nations through its aggressive policies and military buildups and creating a “Second Cold War.” This is not the topic of this article. The U.S. military is spread thin: the number of forces on active duty have been reduced significantly, and our defenses are showing deeply-disturbing signs of wear, neglect, and loss of readiness. This too is a topic of discussion for another article, but some pertinent facts on U.S. reductions will be mentioned later in the article.
I wish to present the caveat that I have been mentioning in other articles:
The next world war will be initiated by an EMP weapon detonated over the continental United States, followed by a limited nuclear exchange and conventional warfare.
North Korea is going to be either the key player or the key “puppet” used by one of the other nations, and one of those nations may very well be the United States, a false flag operation surreptitiously commenced by the Obama administration. Obama may either provoke North Korea into starting it, or carry it out with an American missile and blame it on them. North Korea does have the ability to strike the U.S. with an EMP weapon. This excerpt was taken from a press briefing at the Pentagon:
“I believe they [the North Koreans] have the capability to have miniaturized the [nuclear] device at this point, and they have the technology to potentially, actually deliver what they say they have.”
(General Curtis Scaparrotti, U.S. Military Commander, S. Korea, 10/24/2014)
The North Koreans tested an engine for an ICBM (Inter Continental Ballistic Missile) in April of this year, and in May of 2015 they also tested an SLBM (Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile). This year, on March 23, 2016, they successfully tested another SLBM:
“After previous launch attempts by Pyongyang failed, this one seems to have gone much better, one U.S. official noted.
“North Korea’s sub launch capability has gone from a joke to something very serious,” this official said. “The U.S. is watching this very closely.”
Asked whether the test was successful, another U.S. official told CNN, “essentially yes.”

There is an excellent, in-depth article by Stefan Stanford entitled The Problem from Hell: ‘Doomsday’ Passes Over America Several Times Almost Every Day – Experts Warn: There’s Nothing We Can Do to Stop It.
Here are some very important portions of that article (the entire article is a “must read”) to be able to understand the concepts of a North Korean EMP attack:
“Several times almost every day, many times every week, North Korean satellite KMS 3-2 passes over North America and the US. Capable of carrying a hydrogen bomb as detailed in the video below, we can see this satellite’s continuous passes over America in the screenshots seen in this story. Called by one expert ‘the problem from hell‘, we see this satellite often sneaking up on America from the south where we’re told we’re quite vulnerable as that is our ‘blind side’.
Back in 2004, members of the Congressional EMP Commission met with two Russian generals, Russia’s top experts on EMP technology. The generals disclosed that Russia had a ‘decisive new nuclear weapon’, a ‘Super EMP warhead’. The generals also disclosed that the design information for this weapon had ‘accidentally’ been ‘leaked’ to North Korea.
Ballistic missile defenses (BMD) of the sort that we are half-heartedly pursuing are largely ineffective against an EMP caused by a simple nuclear weapon in a small satellite launched into low- Earth orbit.
One reason for BMD’s lack of effectiveness is that our defensive systems face north and the Russians have admitted to us that they have not only developed, but have passed on to North Koreans, the approach towards launching satellites or missiles called a “fractional orbit bombardment system.” This is simply launching a satellite to the south into orbit instead of on an arcing ballistic trajectory over the North Pole, so the satellite’s first approach comes at the U.S. from the south, and would hit us with a surprise EMP attack from our blindside. The United States has no Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radars or missile interceptors facing south.
Whether it is a ballistic missile targeted on the U.S. and designed to proceed immediately toward a target on land, or is the first orbit of a satellite carrying a weapon able to be detonated whenever the launcher wants, our defensive systems are not focused on such a southern-hemisphere bound launch.”
Keep in mind: Stefan Stanford wrote this in January of this year. The North Korean Kwangmyongsong-3, Unit 2 satellite was placed into orbit December 12, 2012, about 3 years before the article. Then less than one month after the article came out, the North Korean Kwangmyongsong-4 satellite was successfully launched into orbit February 7, 2016. Here is one more excerpt from that amazing article:
“…a Super-EMP weapon would have a low-yield, like the North Korean device, because it is not designed to create a big explosion, but to convert its energy into gamma rays, that generate the EMP effect. North Korean overt nuclear tests in 2009, 2013, and now in 2015 all had low yields, in the neighborhood of 3-10 kilotons.”
The North Koreans have been experimenting with low-yield nuclear tests and have had two more since the above article came out. Their fifth, and most recent test was conducted on Friday September 9, 2016 right after Obama left the G-20 summit held in China. Dr. Peter V. Pry, the chairman and foremost expert on the North Korean EMP threat has repeatedly warned the Congressional Commissions and the public that North Korea’s low yield nuclear tests fall within the requirements for a weapon to generate a Super-EMP. You can see Dr. Pry’s testimony as to how such an EMP can instantly render the U.S. “dark” and without power in this video.
Bottom line: there are two North Korean satellites in orbit that cross over the United States each day that may each be armed with a miniaturized Super-EMP weapon that can be detonated at will by North Korea.
In their own words, the North Koreans are telling us what they will do, as reported by their state news agency after the successful test of September 16, 2016, verified as being 20-30 kilotons by Western intelligence and giving off a shockwave of 5.3 on the Richter scale as measured by the USGS (U.S. Geological Survey) with a seismograph:
“We successfully conducted a nuclear explosion test to determine the power of [the] nuclear warhead. We will continue to strengthen our nuclear capabilities to protect our sovereignty. We have now standardized and minimized nuclear warheads … We can now produce small nuclear warheads any time we desire.”

I recently wrote an article entitled An EMP Attack and Nuclear War: Our Biggest Security Threat is Not from North Korea, Russia, or China. I stand by that title: the biggest threat is from the deliberate complacency and the deliberate weakening of our defenses by Obama and his administration that place the U.S. in a debilitated readiness stance if an attack should occur.
