In this edition of The Pry Report, Dr. Pry praises the Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats for passing bill HR 4521 "The America Competes Act of 2022" that tries to do something about protecting electric grids from EMP. Dr. Pry says the bill is still "too little, too late" and does not give EMP high enough priority, but it is better that they are trying to do something instead of nothing. The U.S. is conducting a nuclear forces exercise called GLOBAL LIGHTNING, that Dr. Pry warns is probably not wise, possibly very dangerous, amidst twin international crises with Russia and China over Ukraine and Taiwan. Dr. Pry warns that one of times the world came closest to nuclear war was during the U.S.-NATO theater nuclear exercise ABLE ARCHER-83, in November 1983. Moscow misconstrued the exercise as U.S.-NATO preparations to make a surprise nuclear attack. Russia nearly launched a preemptive nuclear strike.
“U.S. Governors may suddenly find themselves on the frontlines of Cyber-EMP World War III.”
Governors and State legislators of all 50 States of the United States must become proactive in protecting the electric grids within their States from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and Cyber Warfare—since the federal government has failed “to provide for the common defense” against these existential threats.
Guest: Dr. Peter Pry. Topic: Communist Chinese scientist warns about preparation for an EMP attack. Topic: China is building over 100 ICBM silos. Topic: Why is Washington D.C. allowing our military to fall so far behind China and Russia in our military hardware and readiness? Topic: The defense industry is bragging about new W-88 missiles but the problem is they are not new buy recycled. Why is the U.S. military recycling nuclear weapons and not building or testing new ones? Topic:We take your calls.
Colonial Pipeline was hacked and shutdown temporarily. Cyber-attacks can destroy pipelines, causing them to explode. Colonial Pipeline is crucial to fueling U.S. military power projection capabilities from the east coast to protect NATO, or to help Ukraine, during a Russian invasion. That is why the Colonial Pipeline was really targeted, not for the millions paid in ransom, but as a demonstration of Russia’s cyber-power. The Colonial Pipeline cyber-attack proves Russia is not bluffing.
The United States and NATO allies regularly experience from Russia major cyber-attacks penetrating government agencies and critical infrastructures for electric power, telecommunications, transportation and other sectors vital to electronic civilization. These events practice a new way of warfare, including EMP attacks, that could blackout North America and NATO Europe, and win World War III at the speed of light. Any nuclear weapon detonated in outer space, 30 kilometers or higher, will generate a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) damaging all kinds of electronics, blacking-out electric grids and collapsing other life-sustaining critical infrastructures. No blast, thermal, fallout or effects other than HEMP are experienced in the atmosphere and on the ground.
