Fox News talking about NK attacking with EMP's
And we should be worried for our infrastructure and would cause numerous deaths. This seems like a reach. I don't know the ladies name (she's a judge) or the person she was interviewing, I did like what she said earlier on the car attack today.

I think EMP's are way down the list on what we should be worried about with a conflict with the norks, what do you think?

I think that Fox News is basically the new CNN and I don't entertain their bull shite anymore.

Isn't that the plot to that horrible Homefront video game?

re: Fox News talking about NK attacking with EMP's
While I am worried about an EMP attack , I have seen YouTube vids (I know, I know, it's the Internet so it must be true) showing EMP pulses on old versus newer electronics. The super old stuff keeps ticking, the 20 year old tech shorts out, the newer tech resets then works just fine.

I've heard all the rage about NK EMPs, but, have a hard time believing they could deliver anything dealing with electricity involved. Image: https://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/n-s_korea_night.png

I wouldn't dismiss the possibilty, but I think if they are able to deliver an EMP attack then we should be worried about more conventional methods.

Protip: Your cell phone won't work after a EMP attack, but any radio equipment can be saved by storing in your microwave oven. It's a near perfect faraday cage.

Massive power outages for a good length of time would bring down America.

Just think about a large region with out power. No food no water no lights not AC no heat etc. how will one gonto work and get paid? Generators will run out. Riots.

This is my concern. America cant handle something like this

Everything built for MIL-SPEC will be fine, as well as anything contained in a Faraday Cage.

Everything else that's powered up will be toast.

I'm not so sure that the power grid would be toast, but unless the computers that control the grid are EMP hardened with MIL-SPEC or protected by Faraday Cages there would be problems.

In all reality an EMP attack would be much easier for NK to accomplish given the fact that their re-entry vehicle and guidance systems are questionable.

It would be much easier for them to accomplish an atmospheric blast than a directed strike.

I don't know about NK but a EMP should be a huge concern for us. Its highly more likely that someone could attack us with that than a regular nuke. A EMP detonated in the right place would kill more people than a regular nuke.

You might be surprised. Store your water now. Store potable water in your freezer. If nothing else, you have a freezer full of ice when the power goes out. Buy rice and dried beans, store in a cool dry location. Buy non-acidic canned goods, they are good well beyond expiration date.

Buy a cheap Boufeng 2m radio (20 bucks), and learn the ham frequencies. You don't have to be licensed to buy one or listen.
