Great news: North Korea has mobile ICBM's, developing EMP bomb

North Korea has developed a mobile intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which is considered a serious threat to the United States.
The commander of U.S. military forces in the Pacific said this week that North Korea’s KN-08 missile — a new road-mobile, intercontinental-range weapon — is a serious threat with the potential to hit the United States with a nuclear warhead.
The comments by Navy Adm. Samuel Locklear to foreign reporters on Tuesday were made as a report provided new details on the six KN-08 missiles — initially thought in 2012 to be mock-ups — that now appear to be hard-to-locate and easy-to-fire mobile intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).
“From a military planning perspective, when I see KN-08 road-mobile missiles that appear in a North Korean military parade, I am bound to take that serious, both for not only the peninsula, but also the region, as well as my own homeland, should we speculate that those missiles potentially have the technology to reach out,” Adm. Locklear said.
North Korea wants the United States to believe it has strategic missiles, and the strategic threat cannot be ignored, he said.
The KN-08's have not yet been tested.

Meanwhile, North Korea is also reported to be developing an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapon.
A new twist on the threat of a North Korea missile strike on the United States was disclosed Monday in Seoul. South Korea’s National Intelligence Service revealed that Pyongyang is developing an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapon.
The intelligence service stated in a report to the South Korean legislature that North Korea has purchased Russian-made EMP technology for developing its own pulse arms, Agence France-Presse reported.
EMP was first discovered in the 1950s during nuclear tests in the Pacific. After large nuclear test blasts, all electronics in areas up to 1,000 miles from the point of detonation were disrupted.
In recent years, EMP simulators have evolved from test equipment — used to check the survivability of electronics on nuclear and other weapons — to offensive weapons that can create EMP waves without nuclear blasts. The United States, China, Russia and North Korea are believed to be working on EMP weapons.
Former CIA Director R. James Woolsey Jr. and Peter Pry, a former U.S. intelligence officer who took part in a congressional EMP commission, stated in a recent article that North Korea’s long-range missiles appear “capable of making a catastrophic nuclear EMP attack on the United States.”
North Korea’s 2012 satellite launch shows that a warhead-equipped satellite in polar orbit at a height of around 310 miles could be detonated over U.S. territory. The satellite bomb would be “ideal for making an EMP attack that places the [disruption] field over the entire contiguous 48 United States,” they wrote on the Family Security Matters website.
Analyst Mark Langfan says that if North Korea has these weapons, so does Iran
Arutz Sheva analyst Mark Langfan, who has been warning of the EMP threat for a long time, notes that North Korea and Iran have long been cooperating in the nuclear field, and that technology that reaches Pyongyang can be assumed to have reached Iran as well.
Langfan recently predicted that Iran will use an EMP bomb to take control of the Shiite-majority areas of eastern Saudi Arabia where almost 100% of Saudi oil is located.
One Iranian EMP bomb can knock out the Saudi and American defenses in Saudi Arabia, he noted.
What could go wrong?

In the US, if you even look to get ready as the ready.gov website tells you, then you will be labeled as a wild prepper tea bagger. The electricity supply is being decimated by the Gaia closing of coal units, blocking of o&g production, and anti-nuke agitation. How about Israel? Will gas production be allowed? or will Brightsource's $$BBBillion of inadequate solar, etc. be foisted on the country, with undermining of competing sources by govt action?

So we may not even need to be hit by an EMP to have our electricity disappear and become a tool of the corrupt, unaffordable by the poor or unfavored.
