Retired Green Beret Warns: “North Korea Can Deliver A Warhead Containing An EMP Weapon Dead Center Over The Continental United States”

Most are aware by now that North Korea has tested (successfully) another ICBM missile, and its nuclear ambitions are more concrete by the day.  The mainstream media and the Obama administration are the creators of the public’s skepticism and denial regarding North Korea’s capabilities.  The Obama administration consistently and deliberately downplayed the true strengths and capabilities of North Korea over an eight-year period.  Such a downplay was further enabled by key press conferences in which members of the U.S. military’s command structure (specifically those serving in the Pentagon) were made to parrot the administration’s denial.

By “pulling Pentagon officials out” and having them categorically deny North Korea’s capabilities, it set the tempo to create a false narrative that Obama and his minions would champion throughout the eight years.  Pentagon officials (Admirals and Four-star Generals) were periodically “rotated” into these press pools to downplay the abilities of North Korea to launch a nuclear missile against the United States.

This obfuscation, orchestrated by Obama and parroted by those general officers who were about to retire in a couple of years was a precise and deliberate weakening of the United States’ defensive stance against a nation that declared its intentions to strike her.

All the experts on the subject were marginalized and labeled either as “crackpots,” or just scoffed at with their opinions relegated to page A-14, just above a coupon for “Captain Crunch” and at the bottom of the page of the newspaper.  The public bought it.  They swallowed the pill offered by the government-media complex, and in their own narcissistic hubris, discounted the efforts of a “backwards” country such as North Korea to send a nuke to the U.S.

Not anymore.

Now the media is grudgingly, painfully admitting what cannot be hidden: North Korea has more than enough capability to hit the United States.  All of it.  The North Korean ICBM test on Friday, July 29 proves they can strike the U.S. anywhere.  Here you go:

“Looks like it pretty much can get to New York, Boston, and probably falls just short of Washington [DC].  If those numbers are correct, the missile flown on a standard trajectory, the missile would have a range of 10,400 km (6,500 miles), not taking into account the Earth’s rotation.  However, the rotation of the Earth increases the range of missiles fired eastward, depending on their direction.  It is important to keep in mind that we do not know the mass of the payload the missile carried on this test.”

David Wright, Senior Scientist, Global Security Program, Union of Concerned Scientists to CNBC

Keep this sentence in mind from the excerpt: “However, the rotation of the Earth increases the range of missiles fired eastward, depending on their direction.” 

Such proves they have at least enough “juice” to deliver a warhead containing an EMP weapon dead center over the continental United States, and can strike the U.S. anywhere.

Dr. Peter V. Pry, formerly an analyst with the CIA, and now the head of the Committee to Assess EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) Threats against the U.S., is the foremost expert on such threats and briefs Congress on them annually.  Dr. Pry has assured Congress countless times that North Korea not only has miniaturization capabilities regarding nuclear warheads, but also has that capability regarding the deployment of an EMP weapon.  I strongly urge you to read his writings and articles.

Now-retired Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R, MD) practically hopped up and down during both the Bush Jr. and Obama administrations to try and initiate action by the government to protect the grid and infrastructure from an EMP attack.  To no avail, all his pleadings… substantiated by piles of research documents and assessments – pure evidence – fell on deaf ears, and he has since retired and withdrawn from mainstream society.  Several general officers over the past years (such as General Curtis Scapparotti, for example) went “against the grain” during the Obama years and declared that North Korea did indeed possess EMP weapons, miniaturization capabilities, and ICBM’s.  Their declarations also went unheeded.

Now, just as Obama planned it, we are “behind the power curve,” and vulnerable: North Korea has had years to prepare, in the face of mere “sanctions” or other “paper-tiger” rumblings.  Through our complacency, they have been enabled to strike the U.S.  Along with the mothballing of TARS (Tethered Aerostat Radar System), the string of radar-equipped balloons along the Gulf Coast to add about ten minutes early warning time to our missile tracking capabilities. As SHTF Plan reportedTARS was taken out in 2013, at Obama’s direction.  North Korea has two satellites in orbit that each cross over the U.S. several times daily at 300 km, the optimal height for an EMP strike.

Just as Obama planned it.

The United States, South Korea, and Japan all equally assessed the North Korean launch on July 29th with the same capabilities.  President Trump said that he would take all necessary steps to ensure the security of the U.S. and its allies.  The nations (the U.S. included) have all declared the intention of more sanctions against North Korea.  More nonsense.  These two excerpts came from a article by Cheyenne Roundtree and Gareth Davis for Mailonline that are interesting, if not “amusing” (from a cynical perspective).  Here’s the first, with the main point underlined:

“[President] Donald Trump released a statement yesterday after the missile launch, saying: ‘North Korea’s test launch yesterday of another intercontinental ballistic missile – the second such test in less than a month – is only the latest reckless and dangerous action by the North Korean regime.”

Yes, there you have it from the mouth of the President of the United States, confirming it was indeed and intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), and was indeed the second one that is confirmed.  Here is the second excerpt:

“Washington and its allies have watched with growing concern as Pyongyang has made significant progress toward its goal of having all of the US within range of its missiles to counter what it labels as US aggression.  While there are hurdles, including building nuclear warheads to fit on those missiles and ensuring reliability, many analysts have been surprised by how quickly Kim Jong-Un has developed North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.

Well, along with interesting and amusing, let’s add infuriating to the list to describe these words from the excerpt:

“Many analysts have been surprised.”

“Significant progress toward its goal”

Do you think those analysts will be surprised when, suddenly, all the lights and air conditioning in their offices go out and they’re in the dark on the 30th floor?  Or if not that, perhaps they’ll be surprised when they look out of their windows and see a nice blinding flash of light and a mushroom cloud?  Do you think either an EMP and/or a mushroom cloud over what was once an American city will prove that North Korea has made significant progress toward its goal?

Sometimes valuable information comes from sources that might normally never see the light of day.  I found this comment on Steve Quayle’s website that may place things into perspective from a “grass roots” level.  Obviously, it is written by a mother of someone in the service, probably the U.S. Army.  Here it is, along with its citation:

“Angel says:  Comment ID: 3722746    August 1, 2017 at 1:22 am

“Wanted to give a heads up that the upcoming fight with North Korea is very real.  My child is a Combat Engineer stationed at the DMZ currently and they are readying for a fight.  They are doing things in that area that haven’t been done in 50 years.  Such as clearing mine fields.  They are awaiting orders to attack.  Get prepared now if you’re not already.  I have someone on the front line and I can tell you it’s getting bad.”

Sometimes information from the average person will give you insights on things you will not hear in the mainstream media.  This woman’s comment is both simplistic and unsolicited, and anyone with more information who is in the area?  Your comments would be greatly appreciated.  Such comments can reveal (at least in part) what is taking place over there and is valuable, because there is no such thing as “grass roots” journalism anymore.  There are no more reporters to interview the “man on the street” or to cover things happening in foreign countries.  We must rely on what information we bring to one another and our wits to be able to recognize the valuable parts…pieces to the overall puzzle that present the big picture.

Let’s once more examine the “flip” side of things.  We have a President who has not been able to accomplish much, and thus far has been railroaded by Congress and members of his own political party every day since being sworn in.  His popularity ratings are falling, and the midterm election campaigning is right around the corner.  What is the solution?  Why, the same as it was for Bush Jr. back in 2003.  War.  War is the solution, either false flagged/orchestrated by the U.S., or allowed to be initiated by North Korea.  War is the vehicle to create a cohesive bond and gain the support of the populace: nothing new here with this method.

The cost, however, will be sustained by the population and not by those who initiated the conflict, whether North Koreans, Americans, or others.  The ones who initiate the hostilities will be safe in underground bunkers with food, water, medical supplies, and armed guards…funded by their “host” populations, who will be busily engaged in being vaporized and incinerated on the surface.  I close with the point that I have stood by all along, and exhort you to make the best possible choices and take actions for you and your family, while there’s still time to do so, in whatever way you can.  Now is the time to act, and not “one second after,” so to speak:

The next world war will be initiated by an EMP weapon detonated over the United States, followed by a nuclear exchange and a war between conventional forces.

      I wouldn’t be so quick to discount the possibility of something like this happening. The only question is, who is really responsible for it? That will most likely be the deep state, NWO, elites who run the show from behind the scenes.

      • John C Carleton

        Don’t think China will allow US to destroy NK again, murder most of their civilians as they did in the 1950s.
        1950s, when they did not have what they have now, when the attacking Chinese troops were picking up the weapons of the Chinese dead in front of them and continuing the charge. They had no air force, and kicked the US’s ass all the way from the Chinese border to the 38th Parallel.
        US real good at destroying little countries that can not fight back.
        China can.

        • SP_88

          A lot of people remember our victories during WW1 and WW2, and they have this idea that our military is invincible, that we can defeat anyone. And that’s just not the case anymore. We had a good military, and we still do, but we had some luck on our side too. Plus, a lot has changed in the last 7 decades since WW2.
          Another thing that people look at is our military budget. We spend more on our military budget than every other country combined. And people automatically equate that to military capabilities or military strength. But it doesn’t work like that. Just like how we spend more on healthcare, but other countries have at least equal healthcare to us for a fraction of the cost. Basically our country wastes a massive amount of money.
          Something that could be done for $500 would cost the government hundreds of thousands of dollars to accomplish, and it would end up being a half ass job.
          And the military is no different. Billions of dollars go into our military. But there is so much waste and corruption. If you take away the money that is wasted or used to line the pockets of greedy politicians and bureaucrats, the money left over that actually makes it to fund our military is probably not much more than any of the other large countries.
          China probably spends money on their military in a more frugal manner. And they have many times the people as we do. And if they found a way to mass produce a weapon, such as a missile, that can destroy our most important military hardware, our Navy ships and tanks and bombers, etc, and we don’t have a way to defend against it, we would quickly find ourselves in trouble.
          All it would take is one or two really smart ideas that are simple to execute, and devastating to our military, and we could be defeated very quickly. Especially if our government either doesn’t know about it or if they do know, but they don’t take it seriously.
          After Obama gutted our military for the past 8 years we are at a serious disadvantage, and we have a lot of catching up to do.

          • John C Carleton

            I don’t want to catch up. I want the Empire dead, so that America can survive.
            The Empire needs the military, not America.
            That massive military is a mercenary force for criminal international corporations, controlled from Tel Aviv.

          • SP_88

            I agree. It’s not like war has ever benefited we the people. All these wars were so criminal elitists could make huge profits and increase their power. And they send our children to die so they can do it.
            But as far as our military, I was simply talking about military capabilities and people’s perception of their abilities.
            I don’t think war is ever a good idea. There are thousands of people, and sometimes millions of people, all fighting each other and killing each other, and these people don’t even know each other. The whole idea is ridiculous, and tragic. How many parents, wives, brothers and sisters are gonna get that knock on the door from someone telling them that their son, daughter, husband, etc, is dead? And for what? Freedom? To spread democracy? No. It’s for wealth and power, and not for us, but for the elitists who started these wars. We don’t gain anything from it.
            And now TPTB see an opportunity to start another war. And they don’t see the victims of war, their families, destroyed homes and businesses, etc. They only see dollar signs.
            But Russia and China are not going to let us just march in there and destroy the country. So it looks like TPTB are trying to find a way to get North Korea to start the war. Then they can justify attacking NK.
            But they aren’t going to be able to use nuclear weapons. Not without pissing off the Chinese. They are going to have to use conventional weapons. And hopefully it doesn’t spill over into a world war.

        Take into consideration the sources here…SHTFplan … a prepper fear porn site…seems to be the only source anywhere for this info,and they don’t give any context or setting in which these quotes and claims were made.

        They left out the part where he was a character in a low budget Dolph Lundgren movie …..

        C’mon people…. I know this is DS …but c’mon.

        • SP_88

          Dolph Lundgren, lol. A “B” movie star if there ever was one. Anyway, I did hear from another source that they can reach New York and Boston, but it was after I read this article that I heard it. And I don’t know who their source was.
          I heard it on the Glen Beck radio show in the morning, and again on Sean Hannity that afternoon.
          But regardless, I don’t think they would be stupid enough to try and hit New York or Boston, because they know that we would bomb the shit out of them.
          And even if they did send a missile towards us, it would never make it to it’s target before we shot it down.
          If they have an ICBM, and it works properly, then they are technically able to reach those cities. But, can they actually aim this thing? Could they actually get it to accurately hit a target? Based on their previous missile tests, I doubt it. Distance is one thing, accuracy is quite another.
          So to claim that they have a missile that can reach us is sort of misleading if they can’t aim it accurately.
          So far, their missiles have been flying more like a bottle rocket without a stick.
          But if they keep working on it, eventually they will get it right. And then they will be able to hit New York or Boston accurately.
          As of now, I think this is based on a linear measurement that is based on some technical specifications.

  • I would consider it a personal favor if they would deploy everything they have on Washington D.C. during the next state of the union address, save one for Raven Rock.

  • Jeffersonian

    South Korea can’t feed their own people, let alone have sophisticated weapons that would reach us! If anything like that happens, you can bet it was our own US govt pulling ANOTHER 9/11, Saddam WMD’s that don’t exist, fake chemical weapons attacks in Syria, Gulf of Tonkin, Boston Smoke Bombamd any of the other false flag events they dreamed up to scare the American sheeple into more banker wars that every corrupt politician will make millions helping them pull it off and selll Americans that everyone in an country not owned by the IMF hate freedom and want to harm all Americans except for the politicians and government!

  • roddy6667

    North Korea has never threatened the US. They have promised to counterattack anybody that attacks or invades their country. This is their right. They see what happens when you don’t have the ability to counterattack with nukes. They see Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria and all the other countries that America has invaded on false premises.

    • dylan dougal

      Don’t forget the North Korean War, the Vietnam war where THREE MILLION CIVILIANS WERE MURDERED BY AMERICA, again all on lies, now America is using the CIA to stir up trouble in Venezuela, why is this, because Venezuela has the largest Oil Deposits in the world, and the American Military International Terrorists want to steal all that oil, so they need to install a government that will allow then to do that, and rape the country of all its assets.

    We continually hear about North Korea launching test missiles, but America has launched numerous teat missiles this year, but the Gutter Press and Gutter Television Stations just Censor this, we no longer have a free press or television stations in the western world, just censored propaganda, the only place you can hear truth and factual news is on RT. 24/7 in English from Moscow, Washington and London in English, an award winning 24/7 News Channel.

    • 667..neighbor of the beast

      Teat missiles…!

      The boobs at RT must keep us abreast of such things!

  • Ray K

    The article states that firing an ICBM eastward increases its range. I’m no rocket scientist, but the earth rotates eastward and would be ‘running away from’ that ICBM. (Think about how sunrise progresses across the country to visualize this.) How does the earth rotating eastward add to the missile range??? Sounds like a ‘small error in fact’ to give a huge rise in the beat of war drums.


    • SP_88

      I was just about to argue with you when I thought about it some more. I pictured it properly in my head, but I had my directions backwards.
      You are indeed correct. Firing a missile “westward” would be the way to add range to it.
      I doubt the North Koreans will make such an error. If they do, their missile will fall far short of it’s target.

  • USPatriotOne

    For starts you ost much of my confidence in the article when I got to the point when you said Prez Trumps poll numbers are falling…that’s total and complete BS! The polls are put out by people that want to bring our Prez Down! Do some real research before putting BS in your articles.

    Has the U.S., West been able to reach NKorea with nukes first, for decades? If we show good faith and destroy ours, maybe they will destroy theirs?

  • Undecider

    It’s not going to happen. The NWO relies on electricity to surveil us. They won’t allow their lackey in NK to do it. The question to ask is, what are they rolling out under the guise of defending us from an EMP? That’s where the attention should be put.

    When the lights go out, check your portable electronic devices to see if they are still working. If they are, it’s probably just a run of the mill power outage, or you didn’t pay the electric bill.
    If your portable electronic devices are also off/dead, then we have most likely been hit by an EMP or solar flare.
    But according to what I’ve read, an EMP isn’t going to shut down every single electronic device. Most cars will still run, and most electrical equipment will still work. Only the most sensitive devices will stop working.
    But I do believe that the electric grid will fried. With all the wires and power lines exposed to the magnetic pulse emitted by an EMP, the resulting power surge will cause a lot of damage to the power grid.
    So perhaps it won’t be as bad as they think. If cars still run, we’ll still be able to drive around for a while, until fuel is no longer available. I would suggest stealing a couple of tanker trucks and filling them up with as much gas and diesel as you can find. An electric pump could suck up all the gas from the tanks in the ground at gas stations. Even if they are “empty” as far as the pumps are concerned. There is about 8 or 10 inches of fuel in the bottom that the gas pumps can’t reach. And since the tanks are so big, that’s enough fuel to fill your car a bunch of times.
    If you can’t get tanker trucks, just carry an electric fuel pump in your vehicle with about 15 feet of hose. Put an inline filter on the pump, and slide some large nuts over the end of the hose for weight, so it more easily goes down into the fuel tank. It’s best to fill up a separate container with the fuel in case it’s contaminated. You don’t want to put bad gas into your car and end up broke down. If it’s in a separate container, you can inspect it before it goes in your tank. If there is water in it, it will sink to the bottom, and you will be able to pour off the gas and leave the water.
    And don’t forget, Twinkies do have an expiration date.

    “However, the rotation of the Earth increases the range of missiles fired eastward, depending on their direction.”

    Yeah, sure…
