Report: Iran Military Endorses EMP Attack On U.S. That Would Leave ‘90 Percent Of Americans Dead’

emp attackIranian military officials have endorsed an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack on the United States, a newly translated Iranian military textbook shows.

Such an attack could knock out the electrical grid and create a nationwide blackout, perhaps for months or even up to a year.

“Iranian military documents describe such a scenario — including a recently translated Iranian military textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States,” Peter Vincent Pry wrote in a March 2015 op-ed for Israel National News.

The fear is that Iran will deploy a nuclear missile high in the atmosphere above the U.S., creating an explosion known as an electromagnetic pulse. Such an attack could take down the grid and also destroy computers and other electronic devices.

“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),” Pry wrote. “A nationwide blackout lasting one year, according to the Congressional EMP Commission, could cause chaos and starvation that leaves 90 percent of Americans dead.”

The grid could be down for such a lengthy time because it contains custom-made parts that have no ready replacements. Without electricity, America’s supply chain of food, medicine and all other good comes to a sudden halt.

Pry formerly worked for the CIA and served on the EMP Commission, a group that advised Congress on EMP and its potential threat to the United States. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed last year, Pry and former CIA Director R. James Woolsey warned that Russia, China, Iran and North Korea were all developing EMP weapons that could be used against the United States.

“Thus, Iran with a small number of nuclear missiles can by EMP attack threaten the existence of modernity and be the death knell for Western principles of international law, humanism and freedom,” Pry wrote in Israel National News. “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.”

US Government Is Concerned

The US government is so worried about Iran’s nuclear program that it may have helped carry out an unprecedented digital attack designed to destroy the infrastructure at Iranian nuclear weapons factories in 2010, although Israel also may have been the source.

The “Stuxnet” virus infected computers that control centrifuges, devices that enrich uranium, Wired magazine senior writer Kim Zetter said. Stuxnet caused the centrifuges to fail and the Iranian nuclear weapons program to grind to a halt. Zetter made the claim in the 2014 book, Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World’s First Digital Weapon.

Both President Obama himself and his predecessor, President George W. Bush, approved of the Stuxnet attacks, Zetter alleged. The Israeli government also supposedly participated in the Stuxnet attack.

  1. This will happen this is biblical prophesy

    • Religion is population control for mindless idiots roflmao. I 100% guarantee you don’t have a fukking clue what the bible says

    • You have a point, Sonja. The United States as a Super Power, needs to be eliminated so the Anti-Christ can rule! In the Middle East prophecy is being fulfilled like never before! Time is short!

    • And Pee Wee Herman – remember him? – will be POTUS elect, risen from the ashes.
      Don Trump will be the anti-christ, just because of his hair.

    • America is Mystery Babylon described in the end times. the Whore of Babylon is none other than our statue of liberty based off Ishtah (possibly misspelled, also has 2 other names one being isil i think, again possibly misspelled) an ancient god of fertility. the new roman empire is taking shape too- European Union, with the help of the Pope. there is speculation regarding the 10 horns of the beats in the bible that represent ten “kings” or “nations” and 3 get swallowed up and replaced by the anti-christ. some people think the ten horns are the ten original countries that formed the EU others think it is the ten world segments as drafted by the UN. some of the images used to describe the EU are frightening too- the symbol of a Harlot riding a beast, the tower of babel being rebuilt, the inverted stars on the flag are supposedly a reference to witchcraft depending on who you ask, and some other examples i’ve forgot. there’s also speculation regarding king Solomon (i think) and his dream that was interpreted by Daniel as 4 kingdoms. 3 have been figured out looking back through history, but the fourth is open to speculation. gotta love the bible. speaks to you in riddles and parables. no set times, no specific countries, etc. some clarity would be helpful God!

      i encourage everybody to look up the Isaiah 9:10 Judgement movie/documentary created by a Rabbi describing the similarities between modern day USA and ancient Israel shortly before it fell. look up the Shemitah and Elul 29. fyi elul 29 comes next month-Sunday September 13.

  2. The ruling elite need to be hunted and eradicated. It is the USA that are the real terrorists. When the depopulation happens anyone left standing is going to be fair game

    • Yeah, when asked what one did before the end times, the answer of attorney or politician deserves a swift answer…

    • Mike Man —

      What would you have accomplished if you destroyed USA? I know, calphite world wide, spreading of Sharia and Islam world wide, convert or die by the sword. Also, rape women and children, burn people alive, eat human hearts, killing of innocent people daily with road side bombs or at populated markets. Now if that is not terrorism, I don’t know what is terrorism. If this is all justified by Allah, what kind of supreme being is he? Good and compasionate or Evil and tyrrant ruler. Since I am an infidel I guess I don’t know better, however using my Infidel good judgement I say the latter is the correct answer.

  3. 90%? Don’t think so. More people know how to live off of the land than most people realize.

    • If you’re referring to hunter’s, don’t count on them surviving long after either. They’ll take advantage of a grid down situation and over hunt local populations of wildlife. Better learn to like eating the animal life most people don’t consider sources of food. Not many people know about the abundance of wild edible’s in their area’s either. Have you eaten acorn or cattail before? Process it into flours or starches for cooking? Do you know what bugs are nutritious and edible and are you willing to eat them?

      Most people DON’T know this kind of information and MOST people wouldn’t look at these few thing’s as sources of food to keep them alive. I can go out in the woods and source food for nearly the whole year and I know how to preserve it for winter use. Getting ready to heat up a glass of Black Birch tea right now that I made overnight. 🙂

      • Hunters? HAHA– tehy are not going to do anything- EMP means their million dollar guns wont work with them electronic scopes– smart bullets – drones- battery packs for their heated deer stands etc.. unless its a redneck– them dogs dont know how to hunt,

      • TheSouthernNationalist

        Folks need to start out with chickens, rabbits, fish, and ducks for a meat source if they don’t know what to do about going out into the wild.

  4. Actually, the 90% stat is quite accurate. The first wave of people dying would be those dependent on machines to live. Then the next would be diabetics who must keep their med’s refrigerated and who only have a few weeks supply. Then, we would have those who live in extreme cold climates and extreme hot climates….practically all of the states, who would not be able to survive without heat or A/C. We have evolved over the years and are unprepared for living off the land without our modern conveniences. Then the next die off would be people who die from disease. Without running water and modern plumbing, many would succumb to common illnesses from improper food storage and lack of personal hygiene. If you were able to survive the first year you might have a fighting chance. The grid going down is one of the most dangerous events we would face.

    • The people who will survive are one’s like my family who know how to survive off the land and know how to live without electricity and how to store food long term without refrigeration. It’s sad to see so many Americans not practicing self-sufficiency skills. Bunch of lazy good for nothings, they deserve what’s coming in my opinion!

      • Lets say this doomsday scenario plays out and 90% of the population and “us good for nothings” die as a result. How will the other 10% survive a foreign invasion? Personally, I think the 90% is little more appealing to me if I have to give up my freedom and liberty.

    • Sharon, you’re exactly correct I believe! The only thing that I would add that in the beginning of a grid down situation many would die because of a lack of water. Many in desert areas especially would be in danger, as the areas have few natural water sources to draw water from.
      Once the faucets dry up, getting an adequate amount of water would be problematical. Especially for those also in cities.

  5. An EMP attack seems to be the only way to stop BIg Brother and this tyrannical lobbyist form of government we have.

  6. I wonder if my portable generator and 2001 honda atv will work after an emp attack ? There is so much conflicking talk about this . I have crystal clear well water and heat with wood .

    • Thor, I also have read conflicting reports on that too- I don’t think anyone knows for sure, but I would think probably not. Most reports concur that a faraday cage is the only protection against an EMP.

    • Your generator likely needs gasoline to run, and your well needs electricity??

    • TheSouthernNationalist

      You can make a faraday cage from a metal trash can, just line the inside of it with any non conducting material such as rubber mats, plastic bubble wrap, ect.. Place replacement electrical parts inside and make sure they do not touch the sides of the can, you can wrap them in plastic too for extra protection.
      Place the lid on tight and your electrical stuff will be safe from damage.

      Some items I have in mine are: cb radio, batteries, starter motor(automobile), alternator(automobile), points and condensers, and various other electrical stuff.

  7. These people who are supposed to take care of our countries are a disgrace.

  8. Gee; I wonder how man survived for thousands of years without the electricity or power that has just become available in the last 250 odd years. ??????? 🙁

    • Electricity has only been widely available since the 1930’s, barely even a hundred years. Home computer technology is barely even 40 years.

  9. The first people to die would be the victims of the violence that would occur in every city in America within hours of the power going out.

  10. It absolutely is Biblical prophecy that this would happen; however, the U.S. has military bases and allies across the globe who could also launch a counter attack doing the same thing, so this is highly improbable.

  11. TheSouthernNationalist

    Not worried too much about not having electricity, its those nuke power plants that get fried by the EMP that I’m concerned about, when those things over heat and explode then it will be hell on earth!
