“Doomsday EMP Weapon” Could Kill 90% of U.S. Population… And Government Won’t Save You

90% of U.S. population could be wiped out with doomsday electromagnetic weapon … Pentagon woefully unprepared

There is growing alarm among defense planners about the uptick in nuclear weapons development taking place among the various great powers, including the United States, Russia, India and China, as well as lesser powers like North Korea and Pakistan. Missile defense is, in part, to some degree designed to mitigate the threat of a nuclear attack via ICBM.

But the Pentagon is dreadfully unprepared for the fallout from an electromagnetic pulse, generated either from a nuclear explosion over our country, or from an EMP created by a giant solar flare, for which there is no defense, the UK’s Daily Mail reported.

What’s more, the U.S. is not only lagging behind in terms of defending itself against EMP weapons, it is behind in the development of its own design – though Boeing is at least one American defense contractor working on a prototype, the paper said in online editions.

However, the Daily Mail noted that some have suggested that 90 percent of the U.S. population would perish over the course of the weeks and months following a major EMP event that crippled or wiped out the bulk of the nation’s power grid.

But other developed countries’ populations would likely suffer similar levels of casualties if their grids were destroyed as well, which is what makes the development of U.S. EMP weapons such a vital deterrent. In fact, a recent report from The Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments says that the technology is “one of the most critical operational domains in modern warfare.” The U.S., however, has “unfortunately … failed to keep pace” in that battlespace “over the last generation,” it added.

Titled, Winning the Airwaves: Regaining America’s Dominance in the Electromagnetic Spectrum, the report adds that the technology will eventually be as revolutionary as smartphones.


“In the same way that smartphones and the Internet are redefining how the world shares, shops, learns, and works, the development and fielding of advanced sensors and networking technologies will enable militaries to gain significant new advantages over competitors that fail to keep pace,” the report says.

Its release follows claims made recently by tech boss and presidential candidate John McAfee, who warned that a “doomsday” electronic weapon would kill 90 percent of Americans, as he urged politicians to consider it the No. 1 threat to the country.

“Experts agree that an all out cyber attack, beginning with an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack on our electronic infrastructure, would wipe out 90% of the human population of this country within two years of the attack,” he said in a commentary for the International Business Times. “That means the death of 270 million people within 24 months after the attack.”

As partner site reported Oct. 30, U.S. experts say that the technology exists to protect American grid systems from EMP attack, but that “politics” is preventing the proper measures from being adopted.

    Wow ,truth is scary. You fell off.

  2. hurry the fuck uuuuup!

  3. Huh? How does an EMP kill someone?

  4. Yan Bilodeau Yan Bilodeau says:

    Ya thats the real question Patrick Miller

  5. David Stone David Stone says:

    It kills via the frequency ir uses…..

  6. So I looked it up, minus being right next to the actual device, an EMP does not kill people. And the federal government does have safety measure against an EMP attack. So this post is wildly inaccurate.
