NO DEFENSE AGAINST EMP.
THIS WOULD BE US IF RUSSIA OR CHINA "UNLEASHED HELL".
HOW EFFECTIVE WOULD THE U.S. MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM BE IF RUSSIA LAUNCHED A FULL-SCALE NUCLEAR ATTACK?
A BIT BETTER THAN STANDING OUTSIDE WITH A SLINGSHOT AIMED AT THE SKY.
IT WAS A FAILURE IN 2002, AS HEADLINES REPORTED THEN: Excerpts - Why Missile Defense Won't Work | Missile Wars - PBS

America vs. Russia: Will Missile Defense Help in a Global Nuclear War?
October 20, 2016
"The ONLY existing U.S. strategic missile-defense system capable of intercepting the warheads of intercontinental ballistic missiles is GMD (Ground-Based Midcourse Defense).
The most difficult task in this situation (i.e. missile defense) is to successfully lock the kinetic interceptor on a target moving at great speed.
At this point, eighteen test interceptions using the GMD system have been performed, with nine being successful—only 50 percent.
This is despite the fact that tests are conducted in the most benign conditions; the target is known in advance and consists of a single warhead with no missile defense breaching systems.
About thirty interceptors are deployed in Alaska and California, with the plan being to increase their number to forty-four by 2017.
At this stage of development, GMD will be able to knock down at least twenty warheads in case of a large-scale ICBM strike.
Considering that based on the New START Treaty, Russia and the United States may possess up to 1,550 strategic nuclear warheads, this figure is small and insignificant.
After the warhead has separated from the booster, it is practically impossible to intercept, and after separating the plurality of warheads and decoys too many interceptors are needed to repel the attack. And they are very expensive—more expensive than the warheads.
WHAT ABOUT RUSSIA'S MISSILE DEFENSE CAPABILITY?
[Russia] is protected by the A-135 system adopted in 1990.
Initially, A-135 consisted of two types of missiles: the 51T6 (ABM-4 “Gorgon” according to NATO classification) was created for long-range interception, and the close tier is defended by the 53T6 (ABM-3A “Gazelle” according to NATO classification).
This anti-missile has unique characteristics allowing it to quickly respond to the threat: its maximum speed of 5.5 kilometers per second is reached in four seconds.
Human vision cannot detect the movement of Russia's “Gazelle”
It intercepts ICBM warheads in, AT MOST, twelve seconds after launching.
In both interceptors, the principle of interception is very different from that in the American system, as it involves a high-altitude nuclear explosion of small capacity which does not cause any collateral damage to friendly forces.
This approach allows [them] to raise the probability of destroying targets to almost 100 percent, because it does not require a direct hit and many of the ICBM warheads’ missile-defense breaching tools appear useless.
The extreme age of the A-135 system has led Russia to develop a replacement: the A-235 system, allegedly dubbed “Nudol.”
There is no detailed and comprehensive information on the characteristics of the system yet, as it remains secret. But according to reports, the A-235 will have two or even three defense tiers. The most distant tier will be protected by interceptor missiles similar to the 51T6—but with the interception range increased to 1,000–1,500 kilometers.
The nearest tier would be defended by a new modification of the 53T6, whose high-precision guidance would eliminate the requirement for nuclear warheads for interception—using instead a blast-fragmentation warhead.
There is no data on the intermediate-tier missiles yet; perhaps there will be none at all. In addition to ICBM warfare, the A-235 can be used against satellites and hypersonic cruise missiles.
Unconfirmed information suggests that portion of the A-135’s launchers will be mobile.
[PHOTOGRAPHIC CONFIRMATION OF MOBILE ABMs AS WELL AS MANY OTHERS]
We will now turn to more “simple” systems, designed to combat short-range and medium-range missiles.
In the case of the United States, there are two major tactical missile defense systems.
The first is THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense), performing kinetic exoatmospheric interceptions at a distance of two hundred kilometers. The second is the Patriot PAC-3 anti-aircraft missile system, capable of combating short-range missiles at an altitude of fifteen to twenty kilometers.
In Russia, there are also two main weapons systems capable of performing these tasks: the S-400 and S-300V4 antiaircraft missile systems. The latter is even more effective, as it has already received a new rocket, which allows for intercepting ballistic targets at altitudes of up to sixty kilometers and at ranges of up to four hundred kilometers.
The S-400 will receive these missiles in the near future. Russian air defense missile systems are different from those of the United States, being less dependent on satellite data and having larger number of simultaneously engaged targets. And finally, Russia is actively developing the mobile S-500 anti-missile system.
The efficiency of intercepting ICBM warheads is not high enough. The high cost of the missile defense system and the need to use one to two interceptors per one warhead for security reasons (while one ICBM can carry up to ten warheads) makes the creation of a real global missile defense practically impossible— the United States can’t afford it.
Increasing the number of ICBMs and warheads would be much cheaper for Russia or China.
HAVE WE IMPROVED ON THAT CAPABILITY TO DEFEND AMERICA?
IS THE U.S. ANY BETTER TODAY AT MISSILE DEFENSE?

ONE, JUST ONE, WELL-PLACED EMP WOULD TAKE OUT OUR GRID AND SHUT-DOWN AMERICA.
"MUTUAL ASSURED DESTRUCTION" IS A FAIRY TALE OF THE PAST.
THIS WAS THE THEORY THAT KEPT THE COLD WAR FROM BECOMING WORLD WAR III.
IT NO LONGER WORKS.
FROM 'THE FOREIGN POLICY GROUP'.
It is a clue to the eventual demise of mutual assured destruction (MAD) that the term was coined by a critic who sought to highlight how ludicrous the concept was. In the 1960s, Donald Brennan — an analyst at the conservative Hudson Institute, who was making the case for ballistic missile defense — used the acronym MAD to ridicule the idea that in a nuclear war, or even a large conventional conflict, each side should be prepared to destroy the other’s cities and society. Of course, this objective was not sensible, but MAD proponents argued that was the point: The outcome would be so dreadful that both sides would be deterred from starting a nuclear war or even taking actions that might lead to it.
Privately, most generals and top civilian leaders were never convinced of the utility of MAD, and that skepticism was reflected in both Soviet and U.S. war planning. Each side strove for advantage, sought to minimize damage to its society, deployed defenses when deemed practical, and sought limited nuclear options that were militarily effective.
No U.S. president since Jimmy Carter has been willing to renounce missile defense, despite the clear lack of foolproof technology.
Indeed, even the simplest missiles are difficult to intercept. Ironically, primitive warheads that tumble in flight — the very types of missiles that might be launched by low-tech U.S. adversaries such as Iraq or North Korea — are harder to track than are more sophisticated ones.
And adversaries could deliver nuclear weapons in a variety of other ways, such as by airplanes, ships, and cargo containers.
How do you "deter" a suicide bomber?
CURRENT MISSILE DEFENSE IS A BAD JOKE.
17 July 2017
New-design nuclear weapons — and new operational plans — are needed for deterring and defeating the new way of warfare being planned by our potential enemies.
Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran plan a revolution in military affairs combining cyber-attacks with nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to decisively defeat enemy military forces and paralyze entire nations.
They envision using low-yield nuclear weapons, specially designed to generate EMP, what Russia calls Super-EMP weapons.
RUSSIA KNOWS THE WEAKNESS.
An article in the Russian General Staff’s journal Military Thought, "Weak Points of the U.S. Concept of Network-Centric Warfare" recommends nuclear EMP attack to defeat the U.S. by "electronic warfare,"
"American forces may be vulnerable to electronic warfare attacks, in particular, an electromagnetic pulse that is a brief powerful electromagnetic field capable of overloading or destroying numerous electronic systems . . . A single low-yield nuclear weapon exploded for this purpose high above the area of combat operations can generate an electromagnetic pulse covering a large area and destroying electronic equipment without loss of life that is caused by the blast or radiation."
Moreover, the article adds, "Today, too, a considerable body of administrative information in the U.S. armed forces goes through the civilian Internet. Many commercial communication satellites, particularly satellites in low orbits, can have their functions impaired or they can be disabled by electromagnetic shocks from high altitudes."
CHINA ALSO SEES THE FLAW
China's military doctrine sounds an identical theme. According to the People's Liberation Army textbook, World War, the Third World War — Total Information Warfare, a nuclear EMP attack is part of "information warfare," "With their massive destructiveness, long-range nuclear weapons have combined with highly sophisticated information technology and information warfare under nuclear deterrence . . . As soon as its computer networks come under attack and are destroyed, the country will slip into a state of paralysis and the lives of its people will ground to a halt.
"Therefore, China should focus on measures to counter computer viruses, nuclear electromagnetic pulse . . . and quickly achieve breakthroughs in those technologies in order to equip China without delay with equivalent deterrence that will enable it to stand up to the military powers in the information age and neutralize and check the deterrence of Western powers, including the United States."
"As opposed to conventional and nuclear weapons, EMP weapons are a new type of weapon capable of causing mass destruction by instantly releasing high-intensity EMP. . . The unique destructive effect that EMP have on electronic equipment was unintentionally discovered by the United States in the 1960s during a nuclear test. . . On a battlefield, this new-type weapon will cause devastating damage to electronic systems, including computers, communications and control systems, and radars, resulting in immeasurable losses."
IRAN WAS ALREADY ACCUSED OF TRYING TO DEPLOY SUCH A WEAPON AGAINST THE U.S. AND WE'VE KNOWN ABOUT THEIR PLANS FOR AT LEAST TWO YEARS.
WASHINGTON EXAMINER, MARCH 19, 2015
"Iranian military documents describe such a scenario — including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States," he wrote.
A knowledgable source said that the textbook discusses an EMP attack on America in 20 different places.
Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who is leading an effort to protect the U.S. electric grid from an EMP attack, has recently made similar claims based on the document translated by military authorities.
Below is from Peter Vincent Pry's column that discusses an Iran EMP attack.
Pry is executive director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security and served on the Congressional EMP Commission and the House Armed Services Committee and in the CIA:
"Iran armed with nuclear missiles poses an unprecedented threat to global civilization.
One nuclear warhead detonated at high-altitude over the United States would blackout the national electric grid and other life sustaining critical infrastructures for months or years by means of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). A nationwide blackout lasting one year, according to the Congressional EMP Commission, could cause chaos and starvation that leaves 90 percent of Americans dead.
For the first time in history, a failed state like Iran could destroy the most successful societies on Earth and convert an evolving benign world order into world chaos."
EMP satellites and "cyber-nukes" are an unprecedented challenge to the aged U.S. nuclear deterrent."
THE ODDS OF SURVIVING A MASSIVE NUCLEAR ATTACK ON AMERICA ARE SLIM, AT BEST, AND NONE IN MANY CASES.
OUR "PUBLIC FALLOUT SHELTERS", OUR "CIVILIAN DEFENSE ORGANIZATIONS", ONCE FOUND IN EVEN RURAL AREAS IN THE 1960s, ARE GONE, NO LONGER IN SERVICE, NO LONGER MAINTAINED, NO LONGER FUNCTIONAL, UNAVAILABLE.
RUSSIA, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAS BEEN VERY BUSY UPGRADING, MAINTAINING AND BUILDING NEW GIGANTIC UNDERGROUND FACILITIES FOR ITS CITIZENS.
THERE HAVE BEEN STATE-MANDATED DRILLS TO PREPARE RUSSIAN CITIZENS FOR WAR.
THEY HAVE BEEN WARNED TO STOCKPILE NECESSARY FOOD, MEDICINES, ETC, IN CASE OF A NUCLEAR STRIKE.
"Millions of Russians engaged in emergency drills beginning on 4 October 2016, according to the English-language web site belonging to its emergencies ministry.
According to EMERCOM, the topic of the drill is “Organization of civil defense during large natural and man-caused disasters in the Russian Federation.” The four-day drill consists of three stages: Stage 1 is dedicated to “organization of civil defense actions.” Stage 2 is “Planning and organization of civil defense actions. Deploying a team of civil defense forces and facilities designed to respond to large disasters and fires.” Stage 3 involves “Organization of actions of civil defense management bodies and forces for response to large disasters and fires.”
But Russian citizens were reportedly told on Defense Ministry-run Zvezda TV that “Schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow.” Further, the Russian publication Pravda reported that EMERCOM is undertaking a project to build shelters capable of protecting all of Moscow’s 12 million residents in case of a nuclear strike."
WE'VE KNOWN FOR SO LONG, YET NOTHING HAS BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER.
On April 16, 1996, the New York Times reported on a mysterious military base being constructed in Russia: "In a secret project reminiscent of the chilliest days of the Cold War, Russia is building a mammoth underground military complex in the Ural Mountains, Western officials and Russian witnesses say. Hidden inside Yamantau mountain in the Beloretsk area of the southern Urals, the project involved the creation of a huge complex, served by a railroad, a highway, and thousands of workers."
The New York Times quoted Russian officials describing the underground compound variously as a mining site, a repository for Russian treasures, a food storage area, and a bunker for Russia's leaders in case of nuclear war.
[MY NOTE: Do follow the links at the end of that article.]
As Russians build gigantic underground bunkers, spanning 400 square miles, the American elite are planning their escape from catastrophe by purchasing airstrips, farms and underground shelters in record numbers.
As preparations for nuclear war are seemingly intensifying, the American public is being told it’s not in any real danger anymore.
THEY LIE, SO 99% OR SO OF AMERICANS WILL BE ON THEIR OWN IN CASE OF NUCLEAR WAR, OR ANYTHING COMING FROM SPACE (ASTEROIDS, SOLAR FLARES, ETC).
BESIDES THESE DISTURBING FACTS, MANY IN PLACES OF POWER, INCLUDING INSIDE OUR OWN PENTAGON, HAVE BEEN WARNING FOR YEARS THAT ANY SMALL NATION COULD DESTROY OUR ENTIRE ELECTRICAL GRID AND SHIT DOWN OUR NATION WITH A WELL-PLACED ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE WEAPON.
FEEL FREE TO GOOGLE THAT ONE FOR YOURSELVES.
I LIKED THE DIRECTNESS OF THIS "DISCLOSURE" ...
Iran And North Korea Could Destroy US With A Single EMP Attack
THINK ABOUT THIS AS WELL...WITH THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR TROOPS STATIONED OUTIDE THE U.S., IN THE EVENT OF A NUCLEAR, EMP, OR 'SOLAR WEATHER EVENT' STRIKING AMERICA, HOW THE HELL WOULD OUR FORCES GET HOME?
IF AN EMP OR SOME 'HEAVENLY OBJECT' WAS THE CAUSE OF GRID-DOWN, ANY FOREIGN ARMY COULD EASILY INVADE AMERICA AND TAKE CONTROL LONG BEFORE WE COULD BRING TROOPS BACK FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
I AM ALSO OF THE OPINION THAT EVEN IF WE WERE UNDER ATTACK AND NEEDED OUR TROOPS BACK INSIDE THE USA, OUR GOVERNMENT WOULD FIRE ON THEM IF THEY TRIED TO COME BACK EN MASSE.
I DEFINITELY SEE THE GOVERNMENT, ESPECIALLY CONGRESS, AS I DO "OLD ROME", SCARED OUT OF THEIR WEE, SICK MINDS OF THE ARMY THEY'VE CREATED, AFRAID IF THEY ALL CAME BACK, THEY WOULDN'T LIKE WHAT THEY SEE AND DECIDE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
The United States’ missile defense system will never work — which is why we’re spending more money on it.
IT'S A MONEY PIT.
May 10, 2014
"For almost 20 years, the United States has poured money into developing a missile defense system that would be capable of shooting down ICBMs and cruise missiles before they impact their launch targets. Despite the effort, the system has never worked. Last month, the General Accountability Office (GAO) released a report on the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) program slamming multiple aspects of the program’s design, administration, and field tests.
Despite these failures and problems, the House voted this week to spend an extra $20 million on developing an East Coast deployment of the GMD, while the Army has deployed multiple interceptors to Alaska and plans to order more.
The total program cost through 2017 is estimated at $40 billion. "
SOMEONE NEEDS TO SERIOUSLY LOOK INTO WHO AMONG THE FAMILIES OF OUR IGNOBLE "RULERS" OWN STOCK IN THE COMPANIES WHO MANUFACTURE OUR MISSILES IN OUR IMAGINARY MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM.
WE NEED TO FOLLOW THAT MONEY TRAIL.
WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHY WE CAN'T ACHIEVE WHAT RUSSIA HAS.
AND THEN WE NEED TO PROSECUTE HUNDREDS, MAYBE THOUSANDS FOR TREASON.
THEY KNOW IT DOESN'T WORK, SO THEY KEEP ADDING TO IT?
THAT IS A GOOD DEFINITION OF EITHER INSANITY OR BRAZEN THEFT FROM THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS AND A RESOUNDING AFFIRMATION BY THOSE "IN CHARGE" THAT AVERAGE CITIZEN DOES NOT COUNT FOR MUCH.
AS I HAVE ATTEMPTED MANY TIMES TO SHOW HERE AT THE TEA ROOM, ANY NATION THAT IS AGAINST BOWING TO THE GLOBALIST AGENDA, ANY NATION WHICH IS FOR THE GOLD STANDARD'S RETURN, ANY NATION OPPOSED TO BEING ENSLAVED TO THE U.N., ANY NATION THAT DECLARES IT WILL NOT BOW AND SCRAPE TO THOSE WHO CONTROL THE WEALTH, THE MAJOR FOOD SUPPLIES, TECHNOLOGY, WILL SEE THE WRATH OF THOSE WHO DO CONTROL SUCH THINGS POURED OUT.
WE SAW IT HAPPEN TO TOO MANY NATIONS SINCE 1917 TO DENY THIS IS THE CASE.
IT REALLY IS NOT ABOUT DEMOCRACY VERSUS COMMUNISM, OR CHRISTIANITY VERSUS ISLAM, OR 'FOR THE GOOD OF THE COMMON MAN.
IT'S ABOUT GREED AND THE DRIVE FOR DOMINANCE, FORCING ALMOST ALL OF HUMANITY TO SUBMIT TO THE WILL OF THE FEW.
IT'S ABOUT THOSE FEW WISHING TO BE RID OF THOSE WHOM THEY SEE AS OBSTRUCTIONS TO THEIR AGENDA.
REMEMBER I TOLD YOU THIS.
