“Back in 2004, members of the Congressional EMP Commission met with two Russian generals, Russia’s top experts on EMP technology. The generals disclosed that Russia had a ‘decisive new nuclear weapon’, a ‘Super EMP warhead’. The generals also disclosed that the design information for this weapon had ‘accidentally’ been ‘leaked’ to North Korea.  [Since ballistic missile defense systems attempt to intercept ICBMs as they speed towards a target city, such anti-missile defenses] …are largely ineffective against an EMP caused by a simple nuclear weapon in a small satellite launched into [and always remaining in] low- Earth orbit.”

Now why would Russia do that?  Why is a little pipsqueak nation like North Korea played up in our press to be a great danger?  (When what they do is largely designed to negotiate for more food aid, given their communist dictatorship’s economy is bleak and their people have been starving…)

North Korea has detonated several low-yield nuclear weapons in recent years, and these can be designed to create significant and directed gamma ray bursts.  They can be launched on an ICBM or put into a variety of orbits like any other satellite.  “The North Korean Kwangmyongsong-3, Unit 2 satellite was placed into orbit December 12, 2012” and “the North Korean Kwangmyongsong-4 satellite was successfully launched into orbit February 7, 2016.”

Dr. Peter V. Pry, the chairman and foremost expert on the North Korean EMP threat has repeatedly warned the Congressional Commissions and the public that North Korea’s low yield nuclear tests fall within the requirements for a weapon to generate a Super-EMP…. there are two North Korean satellites in orbit that cross over the United States each day that may each be armed with a miniaturized Super-EMP weapon that can be detonated at will by North Korea.”

“Any nuclear weapon detonated above an altitude of 30 kilometers will generate an electromagnetic pulse that will destroy electronics and could collapse the electric power grid and other critical infrastructures – communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water – that sustain modern civilization and the lives of 300 million Americans.  All could be destroyed by a single nuclear weapon making an EMP attack.


A Super-EMP attack on the United States would cause much more and much deeper damage than a primitive nuclear weapon…North Korean nuclear tests look suspiciously like a Super-EMP weapon. A Super-EMP warhead would have a low yield, like the North Korean device, because it is not designed to create a big explosion, but to convert its energy into gamma rays, that generate the EMP effect.

Reportedly South Korean military intelligence concluded, independent of the EMP Commission, that Russian scientists are in North Korea helping develop a Super-EMP warhead. In 2012, a military commentator for the People’s Republic of China stated that North Korea has Super-EMP nuclear warheads.  A Super-EMP warhead would not weigh much, and could probably be delivered by North Korea’s ICBM.  The missile does not have to be accurate, as the EMP field is so large that detonating anywhere over the United States would have catastrophic consequences.

So, as of Dec. 12, North Korea’s successful orbit of a satellite demonstrates its ability to make an EMP attack against the United States – right now.”

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, December 19, 2012, Washington Times, “PRY: North Korea EMP     attack could destroy U.S. – now.”

On March 9, 2016, Kim Jong-Un of North Korea stated for the first time that North Korea had accomplished the miniaturization of nuclear warheads that are deliverable by ICBM.  On March 10, 2016, Admiral William Gortney, Commander, U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM), briefed a Senate Committee regarding Un’s statement, and he said the following:

“It is prudent to assume Pyongyang has the ability to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and with an ICBM they can actually strike the continental U.S.”
