James Woolsey, former director of the CIA and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security and a former analyst with the CIA, co-authored an article for (1) The Hill, titled ‘How North Korea could kill 90 percent of Americans’.
The article points to how the mainstream media and some officials repeatedly allege that North Korea is not yet demonstrated it can miniaturize nuclear weapons so they are sufficiently small for missile delivery, or have yet to construct a re-entry vehicle designed to an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which has the ability to destroy a U.S. city by penetrating the atmosphere.
This so-called ‘false reassurance’ surmised by the mainstream news is centered on the fact that North Korea is not capable of carrying out its threats to target the U.S. with nuclear weapons.
However, according to Woolsey and Pry, any country which has built long-range missiles and nuclear weapons, would be able to overcome the challenge of warhead miniaturization and re-entry vehicle construction, much easier than the task of building nuclear weapons, as North Korea has done.
North Korea May Have Miniaturized Warheads
The report draws attention to the fact that Kim Jong-Un, North Korea’s dictator, has been photographed with what looks like genuine miniaturized nuclear warhead for ballistic missiles. Furthermore, the authors claim that North Korea already has two types of ICBMs, the KN-08 and KN-14 road mobiles, which appear to be equipped with sophisticated re-entry vehicles.
In 2015 at a press conference at the Pentagon, Admiral William Gortney, the former Commander of North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD), which is responsible for protecting America from long-range missiles, warned that North Korea’s KN-08 mobile ICBM could have the capacity to strike the United States with a nuclear warhead.
Several months later, Gortney made further warnings to the Atlantic Council, stating that he agrees with the intelligence community that we assess North Korea’s ability to miniaturize their weapons and their ability to put the weapons on a rocket that can range the U.S. homeland.
The EMP Threat
The same year, officials from Reagan and Clinton administrations voiced concerns that the U.S. should regard North Korea as capable of delivering a small nuclear warhead via satellite, designed to make an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack against North America.
The (2) Congressional Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from EMP Attack warns that a single warhead carried to the U.S. by a North Korean satellite could have the ability to blackout the National Electric Grid and other critical infrastructures for more than a year. Such devastation would be likely to kill nine out of ten Americans through the collapse of society and starvation.
Pry and Woolsey’s article also notes how two North Korean satellites, the KMS-3 and KMS-4 are currently orbiting the U.S. on flights which are consistent with a surprise EMP attack.
The North Korean Nuclear Threat
In 2013 (3) Top Secret Writers reported how in February that year, North Korea conducted a nuclear test and in March the same year, the threats started.
The threat of North Korea attacking the U.S. with nuclear weaponry is certainly one we cannot afford to ignore. As Pry and Woolsey conclude in their article, the U.S. needs to do more to prepare for a North Korean attack, instead of continuing to obfuscate the north Korea nuclear threat.
Preparation measures could include a crash program designed to prepare America against an EMP attack and preserve American civilization and hundreds of millions of lives.
