Default EMP attack over heartland

Ron:
Have you heard the recent discussions by some conservatives who believe the ultimate threat of America is an EMP over the heartland, high above the atmosphere in space which would render the US crippled. There would be no electric, cell phones, transportation. Mass looting would take place, etc... I wonder if you or anyone else on the forum has heard of this threat?

This type of attack is only possible with ICBMs. Iran does not have this type of missile and cannot make this type any time soon.

An EMP attack is theoretically possible, but I don't believe that it will occur at all during WW3. The nations that we will fight in that war, don't have that capability.

I could be wrong, but I dont think any sort of explosion in space can be big enough to affect any substantial size of land.

Even the biggest nuke can take out a city but even a city is relatively a small piece of land compared to the size of the country. Its just that many people are concentrated in cities.

I recommend downloading GoogleEarth, it really give you a great realistic perspective of out planet as well as the moon and mars.

It shows real time traffic and weather and is a great tool.

Its also great to map out where you live and finding an escape route

EMP is a well-known effect.

My eschatological view is that EMP will occur during World War 4, but not World War 3. I recall a message of the Virgin Mary to a visionary, I forget which one, saying (in my interpretation) that people would have to live for a time (after the first part of the tribulation) without electricity or cars or modern conveniences. This indicates a destruction of the technological infrastructure of modern society.
