But this type of weapon doesn’t have to be linked to a nuclear bomb to be just as devastating.
Using today’s technology, weapons using a force of electromagnetic pulse are in existence. This means that a country can experience serious effects from a nuclear bomb without ever having been hit with a nuclear bomb all because of the power of the EMP shock wave.
Every country is vulnerable to this threat.
Many countries have the technology that enables them to strike against their enemies – and like all weapons, the potential for a friendly fire accident is also possible.
Weapons that contain the ability to produce an electromagnetic pulse have the capability to completely destroy electrical systems. Since so many things today rely on electrical systems, this could virtually cripple any city, state, or country.
When the pulse hits, any airplanes could literally fall from the sky. Power grids will go down. Anything that relies on electricity will suddenly and without warning cease to work.
That means that you can’t go to the ATM and withdraw cash. You can’t walk into the bank and pull it from your accounts, either. Elevators won’t work. Subways won’t work. People will become stuck in place.
You can line up at the gas pumps if your car’s electrical system isn’t fried, but you won’t be able to get a single drop of gas. You can go to the grocery store, but the registers won’t work.
The traffic signals will all go dark. You won’t have any lights on in your home. No heat. No air conditioning. Your city would go dark. When that happens, civilization halts. You can bet that people will come out of the woodwork in an attempt to take the stuff they need to survive.
And of course, others will also come – the types of people who like to take advantage of disasters. You need to be able to survive an electromagnetic pulse before one ever hits. To do this, make sure you’re not relying on electricity.
