You're likely already familiar with the 2009 EMP Commission Report. It was this report that raised the issue of EMP-preparedness for the American public. It's notorious stating that just one year after an EMP attack, 90% of the American population would be dead, caused alarm throughout multiple sectors of society.
Books began to be written on the subject. Sales of Tedd Koppel's Lights Out, Forstchen's One Second After, and Crawford's Lights Out quickly reached blockbuster levels. And while I believe that these books (and that report) brought the issue of an electromagnetic pulse to light for Americans, I don't believe it showed Americans just how real of a threat it is.
To truly understand just how very real of a risk this is, I believe all we have to do is look at the battle plans of some of the nations that hate America most.
Let's start with Russia
**Non-Contact Warfare was the name of Russian General Vladimir Slipchenko's military textbook. Within this text, he explains how EMPs are the greatest revolution in military affairs in history. According to Slipchenko, the possession of an EMP renders an enemy's armies, navies, and air forces completely obsolete, and it's hard to argue with him there.
