Amidst the ongoing war of words between the two countries, experts are warning that North Korea may launch a powerful nuclear weapon that could cause widespread devastation – such as shutting down United States’ power grid and even wipe out 90% of the country’s population within one year.
Dr William Graham and Dr Peter Vincent Pry issued the warning about North Korea’s nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) in a research paper they entitled ‘North Korea Nuclear EMP Attack: An Existential Threat.’
According to the researchers, North Korea’s EMP bomb could result to an enormous loss of electricity.
This, of course, is bad news for the United States since it can affect communication networks and even other crucial matters such as refrigeration of food and medicines.
The effects could be terrifyingly massive.
As the researchers explained:
“The result could be to shut down the US electric power grid for an indefinite period, leading to the death within a year of up to 90 per cent of all Americans.”
The United States should consider the nuclear EMP threat as a “critical and existensial issue.”
They further continued:
“With the development of small nuclear arsenals and long-range missiles by new, radical US adversaries, beginning with North Korea, the threat of a nuclear EMP attack against the US becomes one of the few ways that such a country could inflict devastating damage to the United States.
“It is critical, therefore, that the US national leadership address the EMP threat as a critical and existential issue, and give a high priority to assuring the leadership is engaged and the necessary steps are taken to protect the country from EMP.”
North Korea could make the EMP attack either by launching a short-range missile from a freighter or submarine or even by using a satellite.
They likewise added warnings about the growing weaponry of North Korea.
“The EMP Commission finds that even primitive, low-yield nuclear weapons are such a significant EMP threat that rogue states, like North Korea, or terrorists may well prefer using a nuclear weapon for EMP attack, instead of destroying a city.”

Australian Court Rules Dead Man’s Unsent Text Message As A Legitimate Will
He signed off the text message with a smiley face emoji.
This is perhaps the first time that a text message, and an unsent one at that, has been considered as a valid will. In Australia, a dead man's unsent text message has been ruled by the court as a legitimate will.
The draft message was addressed to the deceased man's brother and was found after he took his own life in October 2016. He was 55.
Although informal, the court recognized the draft message as legitimate.
Vegas Shooter Filmed Slaughter Before Trying To Escape, May Have Left Suicide Note
Police said the shooter left a suicide note that might have clues on why he massacred 58 people.
The recent Las Vegas mass shootout had been the deadliest assault in the American history. Suspect Stephen Paddock was just another ordinary citizen whose life was transparent through public records and people who knew him were shocked to know that he caused the mass killing. Like his brother Eric described him, Stephen was “just a guy who lived in Mesquite who drove down and gambled in Las Vegas and… liked burritos.”
The reason why Stephen killed innocent concertgoers remains a mystery. There were suggestions that his problems about debts, collapsed relationship, and family history all contributed to his drive to kil.
Police found almost 2 dozens of firearms in Stephen Paddock's hotel room in Las Vegas.
