All indicators point towards North Korea preparing to launch EMP attack against the U.S.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Location: Sohae Satellite Launching Station, North Korea

Intelligence suggests a KN-08 rocket is being prepared for launch.

Range: 7,456 miles

Classification: ICBM

Payload: Undetermined

Power: Liquid three stage engines

Launch date: Undetermined – Estimates indicate between Feb 4th – 16th Feb 2016.

U.S. officials cited intelligence that suggested movement of components and propellant at the Sohae facility, according to Reuters. North Korea is doing everything it can in order to conceal its movements in and around the Sohae Satellite Launching Station. An indication that the launch could take place within the next week or so is that the site appears to have been covered up, just as it was in 2012 to hide preparations for the initiation of Pyongyang’s first satellite.

On January 5th 2016, North Korea claimed that it successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. According to various sources, the test yielded a 6-9 kT blast. Some nuclear weapons experts downplayed the event because of its low-kiloton yield and relatively small seismic wave. Yet, one top specialist says the North Korea’s recent nuclear test aligns fully with the scenario of a device designed for a low yield detonation resulting in an enhanced amount of gamma ray emissions.

This latest test, which followed three others each in the range of 10 kilotons or less, was “another kind of H-Bomb,” a neutron bomb, or enhanced radiation weapon such as a super-EMP weapon.

In order for North Korea to successfully carry out an EMP attack against the U.S, it would need to launch a missile on a trajectory that would take it over the South Pole. It is questionable whether the U.S. has Aegis assets anywhere along the southerly path such a missile would take. This missile would need to quickly release its payload into an orbit of 250-312 miles, which was the altitude of its satellite launch in December of 2012.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union developed a secret weapon called the Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS). It was disguised as a peaceful space launch vehicle, which could orbit a nuclear warhead like a satellite, to make a surprise EMP attack.

South Korean defense ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok recently stated, “In the past, North Korea always fired a long-range missile ahead of a nuclear test. But since it didn’t this time, we are concerned that it could launch one.”

In response to the increasingly unstable situation, the U.S. has begun deployment of MQ-9 Reaper UAVs to South Korea. The Reaper and its MTS-B sensor are capable of providing firing quality data for early interception of ballistic missile launches reinforcing the notion that the U.S. is taking North Korea’s possible missile launch seriously.


North Korea recently detonated a low-kiloton hydrogen bomb consistent with that of a super EMP device’s yield. A week later, the country’s scientists gloated about the ability to destroy the U.S. “all at once.” It would take more than a single low-kiloton hydrogen bomb to destroy the U.S “all at once”, unless the scientists were referring to something else.

      If we had any balls at all we would order the military to shoot down the North Korean missile the second it was launched and drop a couple of MOABs on their launch site. It’s time to put this little fat freak in his place before he gives one of his nukes to ISIS or Al Quaida. So much for the phony nuclear agreement with N Korea and the soon to be Nuclear Iran because of the same toothless agreement with them. It will cost an estimated 2 Billion dollars to insulate the U S power grid from an E M P attack, lunch money in Washington, but it will take an attack, albeit too late, to make us do it. Meanwhile, China and Russia have been insulated for YEARS, so it would be useless for us to use one against them. When they come for us, they will all come at once, right in the middle of us “talking” and with our “pants down”, and N Korea, which is expendable will lead the way.
