With the title Prepare for the great American blackout! I bet you are wondering what in the world I am talking about. I have come to the conclusion that in about five years most of those who are still living in America will be living without electricity. The whole nation will experience a major prolonged blackout that will last many months, perhaps even years. Many if not most of the people living in the cities in America would not survive the aftermaths of the coming electromagnetic pulse (EMP) hundreds of miles over the United States. That is my conclusion why America is not in Bible prophecy. That will be America’s judgment. America will be brought to ruin in one month and will no longer be a world power. Some will think Babylon has fallen but America cannot fulfill that prophecy. That is still a later event in Iraq on the prophetic time clock.
I have already written an article and some blogs on the dangers of an EMP attack on America so I will spare you the details here. If you want to know more check the link above and become informed about what will happen after such an attack. I assure you the EMP danger is not a crackpot theory or threat. High profile government appointed scientific committees and spokespersons have clearly reported on this EMP danger. You need to be prepared because obviously no one in government is doing what is necessary to protect the nation from the dangers. In the article above I say it is likely to occur by 2020. Now I am saying an EMP over America is even more likely to happen within five years or by 2015 so perhaps it is time to prepare for the great American blackout.
Basically I will just say here, that as a result of a high altitude EMP over America most will not have electric power and most electronic equipment in America would be fried. All infrastructure systems would totally fail and it would take months if not years to get even minimal infrastructure back in place. At least half of the population would die in the cities from the immediate food and water wars and there would then be Mad Max like roaming gangs and martial law.
Unless Iran and North Korea stop their nuclear and missile programs or fall to military conquest in less than five years both nations will have the long range missiles and the nuclear capability to carry out an EMP attack over the United States. N Korea might already may have that capability now here are two reports on that Report 1, Report 2. You can be assured that Iran and North Korea already know what an EMP would do to the United States and they are now doing everything in their power to achieve such a capability.
The first target of Iran would not be Israel like some think because Iran knows it would first have to diminish the power of the United States before they could survive any attack against Israel. Iran will have the capability to reach the United States with their long range missiles in less than five years. The mad men of North Korea would launch nuclear missiles at us for almost any perceived provocation if they had them in place. They also will have long range missiles that can reach America’s mainland in less than five years.
If a nation does not care about losing a large portion of their own people from a counter nuclear strike we cannot assume that we have a deterrence from an attack from them. Although it might be difficult, they could even attempt a launch with more crude missiles using a couple of ships off shore and if the ships were promptly sunk we might not even know what nation carried out the EMP attack.
What defense do we have against a EMP attack? The truth is that we have almost no defense. We do have our anti-missile missiles, but do not be deceived, they probably will not work against a well planned EMP attack and Obama is already cutting the little defense capabilities that we do have in that area. These anti-missile systems usually work against missiles in staged tests but that is not the same as hitting a surprise launch with a missile that has counter measures to avoid defenses. Even if a missile had no such counter capabilities, which is unlikely, the failure rate would still be quite high for many reasons. For example, no enemy is going to pre-announce their launch so that we get everything on full alert. By the time the missile launch is identified, system glitches ruled out and everyone goes through all the proper communication channels and reaches a sleeping president who makes a best guess decision to launch an anti-missile missile it will probably be too late. If it were carried out from near offshore there would be no defense at all.
Do not be deceived by these recent claims that you heard in the news that missiles were sent to Hawaii to protect that island from a N. Korean missile threat as if we can actually down any long range missiles launched from N. Korea launched in that direction. Any anti-missile missiles we have in Hawaii cannot hit the long range missiles that N. Korea has. The only long range missiles that we can now down if we are very lucky and very awake are those that come in the direction of Alaska.
I do not know why you do not hear more about the danger of this EMP threat. It should be our highest priority. It is the gravest threat to our nation. Perhaps we do not hear much about it because our government really knows what a grave danger the EMP threat is and it does not want our enemies to know that we know that we are very vulnerable to an EMP.
Frankly, the only thing we can do in the next five years to stop this threat is either get Iran and N. Korea to end their nuclear weapons program or first strike their nuclear and missile capabilities. However, under this administration of appeasement and foreign timidity does anyone really believe that either will happen?
Can you even imagine what would happen in the world if America was neutralized because it had no power or electronics? The world would panic. There would be food riots all over the world. There would be martial law in every nation. The world monetary system would totally collapse. There would be major world wars. It sounds to me like it would rapidly become a biblical tribulation scenario. So those who take Bible prophecy literally might think about a EMP over America about 2015 AD that takes America out of the world picture and that rapidly brings about this tribulation scenario. The coming Antichrist will be the guy out of Europe who seems to have all the right answers for a world in great distress.
With the EMP danger in mind you might soon prepared for a time in the United States when we will have to survive without electricity for months or years. In all likelihood, since nobody seems to take this nuclear EMP seriously, it will happen within five years but it could happen anytime. The EMP might even be a result of a major solar flare on the sun during the next solar max of 2011 – 2014. We should be prepared for a great American blackout whether it comes or not because if it does come it will be too late.
