I almost fully agree with Hal Lindsey on this EMP issue. A couple of years ago I wrote that an EMP attack is the number one imminent danger to the United States. This danger has been reported to Congress by their own hand picked committee of experts. They reported to Congress that an EMP would send our nation back to the dark ages for months or even years. The link to that report is in my article. Guess what? Against the committee’s advice not one thing as yet been done to harden our electric and electronic infrastructure.
By the way, it is not just Iran that is a threat. North Korea can also attack us with an EMP. Not to mention that China and Russia have this technology and their capabilities are tried and tested. It is even not out of the question that it could be done by a terrorist group that got their hands on a few nukes and a few scud missiles. We also cannot rule out a massive solar flare on the sun. If one should occur like the one that occurred in the 1800′s our present economic downturn would be the least of our worries.
These people are not stupid so one wonders why they will not take any action to minimize this grave threat. It really is not that expensive to harden our critical infrastructure so I do not see cost being the issue. Can it be that some at the top levels of Western government are downplaying an EMP because they really want an EMP attack? I know that sounds a bit like the Jericho TV series, but what other sane explanation is there?
Why would some at the highest levels in the Western world order see a use for this? Because it would bring a break down of society and that would give them the excuse to use the military to take complete control of the Western world. Where I disagree with Hal Lindsey is that he said, very few military weapons systems would survive. Actually almost all of Western military hardware is hardened against an EMP. If the systems were not hardened they would be useless under conditions of nuclear warfare so even our Soviet era weapons are hardened against a nuclear pulse. So although a EMP could bring civilian infrastructure to a complete halt it would not significantly effect Western military capabilities at all.
So read up on this and think about the riots and disorder that would occur after an EMP over Europe or the United States. But, perhaps the military will be coming on a big white horse to save the day and Western civilization. Sounds almost Apocalyptic huh? Well maybe it is – at least for Europe. This crises could bring the military leader riding on the white horse that will be the future Antichrist. It also could be the reason why the United States is not in bible prophecy. The Military here might have ran into resistance in certain states. They may have started a civil war.
An EMP attack by Iran on Israel, the U.S. and EU would overnight send the most technically developed nations on earth back to the middle of the 19th century. All our electrical grids would be destroyed. There would be no communications by satellite, TV, radios, telephones; no transportation as we know it, no water, no fuel, no electricity, no food, no stoves, no heat, no air-conditioning, no functioning hospitals, no elevators, no law and order, no computers, no banks, very little work force. In addition, there would be very few military weapons systems that would work.
In the light of this, we should immediately begin to make back-ups for our most essential infrastructure systems. We should shield as many critical electrical systems as possible as fast as we can.
At the same time, we should do whatever is necessary to stop Iran from getting nuclear bombs. Expensive? Yes! But not nearly as expensive as it will be after an EMP attack. I believe that if we don’t do something immediately, that attack will come.
