北韓可能用衛星對美國進行電磁波脈衝攻擊

North Korea could be preparing an EMP strike on the US with two satellites already orbiting above America, expert warns

North Korea could be preparing an electromagnetic pulse strike on the US with two satellites already orbiting above America, experts have warned.

There are fears Pyongyang is secretly developing the ability to detonate a high-altitude nuclear weapon in space, setting off an EMP that would knock out electrical systems down below, with catastrophic results.

North Korea has two earth observation satellites launched in 2012 and 2016, each taking about 94 minutes to complete an orbit of the earth.

Dr Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security in America, warned that North Korea is positioning its satellites in a 'nuclear missile age, cyberage version' of battleship diplomacy 'so that they can always have one of them (satellites) very close to being over the United States or over the United States'.

Pry, also chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission, told Breitbart's Aaron Klein: 'Then if a crisis comes up and if we decide to attack North Korea, Kim Jong Un can threaten our president and say, "Well, don’t do that because we are going to burn your whole country down." Which is basically what he said.

'I mean, he has made threats about turning the United States into ashes and he connected the satellite program to this in public statements to deter us from attacking.

'If you wanted to win a New Korean war, one of the things you would certainly consider doing is taking out the United States homeland itself.'

Pry suggested Pyongyang may be taking its inspiration from a plan the USSR drew up to attack America with an EMP during the Cold War.

He added that a recent North Korean test rocket launch looked 'suspiciously' like practice for an EMP attack'.

Writing for Newsmax, he said this was because of the missile's 'lofted trajectory, to maximise, not range, but climbing to high-altitude as quickly as possible, where it was successfully fused and detonated - testing everything but an actual warhead.'

Last week, experts said they doubted tests of such devices in the past were largely anticlimactic, and failed to produce the widespread electrical disruption that’s been predicted over the years.

Nuclear non-proliferation expert Jeffrey Lewis said claims of societal collapse as a result of a North Korea EMP attack were ‘silly.’
The expert points to a test conducted by the US in 1962 known as ‘Starfish Prime.’

At the time, the researchers launched a missile roughly 400 kilometers (248 miles) above the Pacific Ocean to see how a high-altitude attack, which would trigger an electromagnetic pulse, would affect military equipment.

The bomb was about 100 times larger than the one dropped on Nagasaki – but apart from ‘stunning visuals,’ the test was a ‘disappointment,’ Lewis writes.

While some have claimed that Starfish Prime had dramatic effects down below, shutting off lights across millions of square miles and turning off cars, the expert says there was no evidence to support this.

Instead, just one string of street lights failed in Honolulu.

HOW EMP WORKS

EMP, or electromagnetic pulse weapons, use missiles equipped with an electromagnetic pulse cannon.

This uses a super-powerful microwave oven to generate a concentrated beam of energy.

The energy causes voltage surges in electronic equipment, rendering them useless before surge protectors have the chance to react.

The aim is to destroy an enemy's command, control, communication and computing, surveillance and intelligence capabilities without hurting people or infrastructure.
