Flipped on the tube after coffee and found the topic on fox was the threat of an EMP attack. I'm still trying to find the references mentioned(wiki:EMP and "One Second After.com?"); but the guest talked about a 90% death rate anticipated after one year.some of the wiki references mention a space based detonation over the center of the U.S. is enough to take down our grid. With rogues states like Iran, North Korea, pakistan seeking "the bomb" and a launch system to deliver it to orbit. A one bomb "soft"kill (attacking electrical infrastructure) seems to be possible. Theory being: we would do each other "in"in short order.No electrical grid no fuel pumped either.no fuel no transportation., no big agriculture. Bears looking into... http://www.onesecondafter.com/pb/wp_194d9c9d/wp_194d9c9d.html Now even if the u.s. is hit hard this way Siemans (Europe) should be able to supply replacement grid parts no?
