The Pentagon is in an urgent crack down to try and protect America’s power grid amid fears of attack by North Korea.
President Trump is now facing this possibility head-on and he is not backing down. He told Reuters, “There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely.”
North Korea objective is to kill us anyway they can and former CIA official Dr. Peter Pry warns, “There is an imminent threat… to the national electric grid and not just to a single U.S. city.”
Former CIA Director James Woolsey declared, “According to the Congressional EMP Commission, a single warhead delivered by North Korean satellite could blackout the national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures for over a year – killing nine of 10 Americans by starvation and societal collapse.”
North Korea could completely cripple America in just a few minutes, without firing a single round of ammunition. The amazing thing is that it quite possibly is beginning right now.
On April 21, three major U.S. cities – New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco – experienced virtually simultaneous power outages. Businesses emptied. Schools closed. Subway commuters were stuck underground in the dark. It was feared that a cyber-attack had caused all three blackouts.
The reported “official” word in San Francisco was that the outage was caused by a fire in a substation. In Los Angeles, high winds were blamed. In New York, an equipment failure was the announced culprit.
Maybe that’s the truth, though we are in the midst of liberal Fake news reporting. However, these simultaneous blackouts could have been dry runs for future attacks.
Dr. Peter Pry says that assaults on just 9 of the nation’s 55,000 electrical substations could result in nationwide blackouts for up to 18 months.
“Our death toll would be staggering” reports FOXNews. We can handle short term brown or black outs, but an extended blackout would be devastating.
Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy warns, “… should the power go out and stay out for over a year, 9 out of 10 Americans would likely perish.”
Imagine a blackout lasting weeks or months. Life as it was in our great-great grandparents era would be the new norm. With electricity and computers, we’ve painted ourselves into a corner with total dependence. Lights all over the country would go out, throwing people into total darkness. Your fridge, electric range and microwave would be dead. Even gas ranges activate by electricity. All the food in your fridge and freezer would spoil.
Cities’ wells and personal wells couldn’t pump any fresh water into your house. No water to drink, bathe, cook with or clean with.
Needed medicine? Forget t.
Cars are computer operated and will fail. Prison doors are activated by computers. Banks are tied to computers. Store doors and cash registers are dependent on computers. Ambulances or taxi cabs will not work. Hospitals will not be able to do needed testing or surgeries. The doctors and nurses will not want to leave their own families, even if they could manage to walk to the hospitals in the first place.
Communication? Ha! You wouldn’t be able to operate your radio or TV, or charge your cell phone, so you’d feel isolated and cut off from your friends and family.
All this to think about and that’s if the weather is perfect.
This is not some Conspiracy theory to be mocked and ridiculed. Maybe you don’t care about yourself, but what about your children or grandchildren or aging parents?
Retired CENTCOM General Lloyd Austin said, “It’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when”.
Listen, nobody can predict the future. None of us know exactly when or how an attack on our electrical grid will hit, but from everything we see, it could be soon and it could be devastating.
Do we share this to scare? Well, it is a warning, but if it didn’t give concern then one has nearly given in to apathy.
