EMP..ElectroMagnetic Pulse..what it means for You


nuclear-explosions_047
What will it mean for you? EVERY Nuclear explosion creates EMP, on the surface of the earth OR a high altitude burst. Every bomb makes EMP.

So that means you can’t hide from it. It will NOT hurt the human body, but the effects will cause great hardship for millions. EMP creates 50,000 volts of charge PER meter. About the same as a yard. That charge will “FRY” all the computer chips in things not protected. The largest radio stations at 50,000 watts, only produce about 10 volts per meter. Cars with ignition chips won’t run. Your PC System will be damaged, “unless” you do the things to protect it.  The entire power grid in the USA will be damaged from a very high Nuclear Bomb somewhere over the central USA. A very high bomb (about 200 miles high) its sole purpose is to wipe out the power grid and communications coast to coast. Radios, TV, computers, any thing built in the past couple of decades will probably not work. There will be some exceptions. When atom bomb tests were done in the South Pacific during the 1950’s the EMP damaged stuff in Hawaii about 800 miles away. And those were low surface bursts.

Most of the EMP energy lies in the “radio frequency spectrum” ranging from power lines to radar systems, AND everything in between, which means all kinds of computer chips.

EMP happens to fast for a lightening pole or rod arrestors, to protect the equipment. Though it is faster than lightening, it does the same kind of damage to electrical grids, small OR large. It just melts the circuit.

Typical collectors of EMP are long wire runs. Antennas, telephone lines, power lines, barbed wire fences, sprinkler lines, metal buildings, buried metal pipes, railroad tracks, great amounts of metal objects. Even the mass of electrical wiring in your own home will collect the EMP. The metal pipes in your home plumbing for water will collect EMP. In some rare cases just unplugging a radio or TV “MAY” be enough to protect it. USUALLY NOT! NOT! !

The radiated electromagnetic fields from a high altitude nuclear detonation are probably going to do the first damage coast to coast. The first 1st. Sign of the attack will be the power failure, everywhere. You won’t even get emergency broadcasts. SO unless you have read my information you won’t even know what is happening UNTIL it is too late, and you begin to see the flashes of light from the nuclear detonations. The only way to protect your computer is to enclose it entirely within “a metal” box that is large enough to encase it “with no exposed openings.” I bought a metal trashcan and put cardboard two layers thick in the bottom and around the inside. With the metal LID put on it I do have a place to put the things with “chips” that I need to protect. Quickly some winter evening “after” MID December, as I watch the signs of the times, I will not let the sun go down unless I put My Laptop Computer, Short-wave Radio, CD player, and a few other things in that “metal” trashcan. WITH the lid put on. NO wires can hang out or protrude out of the can. And the lid must be down tight, to protect the stuff inside. After the attack begins and I am sheltered, then I can still have some music, listen to my battery short-wave radio, that will have international broadcasts, and with my power inverter I can use my 12-Volt car battery to run my Laptop. Snug as a bug in a rug.  So that you can have some chance to hear some radio broadcasts WHEN a few stations do get back on the airwaves, you should buy a small hand held radio and extra batteries. They are “small” enough that they can survive EMP. AM 640 and AM 1240 will be the first emergency frequencies to operate Just to be sure it will work, keep it wrapped in aluminum foil when you are NOT listening to the radio.

You can put your $15 or $20 radio in a coat pocket, and listen around “noon” each day to the emergency broadcasts. Just think of the Nation without any power. Traffic lights go out, elevators stop, cars quit running, telephones go dead, gas pumps won’t work for weeks. Looters begin to scavenge anything, and everything. City water pressure pumps are shutdown for months. Thirst will force some people to melt snow with fallout in it, and they will just poison their own insides with a deadly dose of radiation. The functional damage burnout, of chips that control everything today will put us back into the last century. EMP will wipe out the memory of most computers, OR at the least scramble it into a gazillion bits of birthday funeral TV walks glass horsehair flights a hundred and fifty eleven times dung.

FOUND! IRAN’S SECRET BALLISTIC MISSILE BASE


MISSILE BASE
SemnanMissileBase2
============================================================================
The Badr base, a center for air defense which has about 50 underground missile silos housing Iran’s Shahab 3 ballistic missiles, serves as Iran’s second-largest missile-launching site, and is under the control of the Revolutionary Guards.
The base, in the deserts of Semnan far from any city, has many underground tunnels connecting to the silo launching pads, according to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit.

The base’s command and control are connected to other bases in Noje, Hamdan, Shahid Doran in Shiraz and the country’s air traffic control centers in Tehran, Birjand and Bandar Abass.

Last year, the Revolutionary Guards aired footage on Iranian TV showing commanders along with a reporter travel via private jet to the base to observe a test launch of a Shahab 3 from an underground silo.
==========================================================================

MISSILE SILOUndergroundMissileSilo

===========================================================================
At that time, Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards aerospace division, claimed that by placing the ballistic missiles in underground silos, the country is preparing for asymmetrical warfare, which will allow the country to stand up to more powerful enemies. Asymmetric warfare is war between belligerents whose relative military power differs significantly, or whose strategy or tactics differ significantly.
Hajizadeh last September warned Israel that the Islamic regime would launch a pre-emptive attack if it felt its enemies were preparing to attack Iran.

“We cannot imagine the Zionist regime starting a war without America’s support,” he said. “Therefore, in case of a war, we will get into a war with both of them and we will certainly get into a conflict with American bases. … In that case, unpredictable and unimaginable things would happen and it could turn into a World War III.”

The regime holds one of the largest ballistic missile arsenals in the Middle East and, as reported exclusively on WND, with the help of Russian and North Korean scientists, it has developed eight microbial agents, including anthrax, plague, smallpox and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), with some of the microbes genetically altered to leave the world defenseless against such an attack.

Iran has 170 missiles targeted at Tel Aviv from underground silos, some of which are armed with biological warheads, according to another source who served in Iran’s Intelligence Ministry and who recently defected.

The first source said the Semnan ballistic missile base is surrounded by many smaller bases that provide training to the support forces from the Badr and Khatamol Anbia brigades. The base and the surrounding bases also serve as the center for the regime’s aerospace activities, including the launches of Safir missiles that successfully placed satellites into orbit. Those launches are part of the intercontinental ballistic missile program.
Brig. Gen. Larimi commands the missile base, with Col. Ahmad Reza Azizi in charge of security and protection.

The Guards have mapped out an extensive list of U.S. bases in the Middle East to attack with their missiles in case of a confrontation over the regime’s illicit nuclear program, disrupting the movement of U.S. forces and the operation of the U.S. Air Force, which the Guards believe will be the main thrust of any attack by America.

In their preparations, the Guards have also drawn up plans to disrupt the oil flow from the Persian Gulf. They know that about 20 percent of the world’s oil and the majority of oil exports of eight countries in the Persian Gulf pass through the Strait of Hormuz, a narrow waterway that could be blocked by the regime’s forces.
The Semnan base, the source said, serves as a key role for that purpose with its capability to target Israel, U.S. military bases in the region and targets in the Persian Gulf.

The source warned that the regime will not give up its pursuit of the nuclear bomb and therefore is preparing for war and that the time wasted by meaningless negotiations has only empowered them with their preparations, which will engulf the region and collapse the global economy.

England….Aaron Hughes finds bomb at Gilfach with metal detector gift


_65111945_aaron4
=================================================================================

A man using a metal detector he was given for Christmas has unearthed a World War II bomb on a nature reserve.

It was only the second time builder Aaron Hughes, 26, had used the gift from his father, Brian, who was with him at Gilfach, near Rhayader, along with his girlfriend Charlotte Croudace.

Police cordoned off the area and called in a bomb disposal team from Hereford.

Mr Hughes joked that the bomb was “nice to find,” but he would have rather have discovered a pot of gold.

It is understood the device was a mortar bomb, but why it was buried on a nature reserve is a mystery.

The trio were walking along a path on the reserve when they made the discovery.

“It was the first time I’d properly used the metal detector,” Mr Hughes said.

“I had been out on New Year’s Day and I’d found a few coins near a playground – a few coppers and a couple of pound coins.

Aaron Hughes received the metal detector from his father Brian
“The following day on the Gilfach reserve we’d only been there 10 minutes when the detector started beeping.

“I thought I’d discovered a can or a metal lid. I never imagined I would find a bomb.

“I scratched down into the ground and saw the tip of the what we now know is a bomb.

“I wasn’t sure what it was to start with, so I started digging down with a spade and flicked it out of the ground and onto the grass. It was about 2-3in (5-7cm) deep.

“We were shocked because it was pretty obviously a bomb.

“We weren’t sure whether or not to phone the police because 999 is only for emergencies – but this was sort of an emergency.

“It was a nice thing to find, but I obviously would have rather have found a big pot of gold.”

Boy Finds WWII Bomb With Metal Detector………….


Boy-Finds-WWII-Bomb
=============================================================================
A metal detector received as a Christmas gift led a young boy to find a WWII bomb buried in a British field.

Parents do not typically expect a stocking stuffer, this one a metal detector from National Geographic, to make the headlines. This holiday present is worthy of attention for leading to the discovery of a WWII bomb buried in a field in Norfolk, England.
During his first jaunt with the detector, seven-year-old Sonny Cater was scanning a field near his home when he discovered the metal capsule. The boy, accompanied by his parents and brother, was alerted to the buried object when the metal detector began beeping.

According to an article by The Daily Mirror, the family had no idea what the mud covered object was until they brought it home for closer inspection. The boy’s mother, 39-year-old Tracey Wood, said the following:

“It was a big muddy lump when it came to the surface so we stupidly thought, ‘Let’s take it home’. We feel a bit silly now we know it could have potentially been dangerous but its not often you go exploring and end up with a bomb.”

Bringing the object to their home and washing the mud away, the boy’s father became concerned and placed a call to authorities. Bomb experts from RAF Wittering quickly converged on the family’s Kings Lynn residence.

The Telegraph reports that the device was identified as a “10lb British practice bomb from WWII” before it was taken away for safe disposal. Thought to have been used for British practice runs during the war, the bomb still contained internal wiring. Fortunately, the device was not found to hold any explosive material.

Flight Lieutenant Donald Earl, an RAF Wittering spokesman, urges the public to alert authorities to any such objects found rather than trying to move them. He points out that this particular finding is a bit unusual:

“We find a lot of bombs in Afghanistan with metal detectors but we don’t tend to find them in the UK.”

Iran unveils new missile, other weapons….


DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran unveiled upgrades to six weapons on Tuesday, including a more accurate short-range missile and a more powerful naval engine, Iranian media reported, in what seemed to be its latest response to international pressure over its nuclear program.

The hardware was presented at a ceremony marking Defence Industry Day and attended by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Defence Minister Ahmad Vahidi.

Israel has said it is considering air strikes on Iran’s nuclear sites if the Islamic Republic does not resolve Western fears it is developing the means to produce atomic weapons, something the Islamic Republic denies.

Iran says it could hit Israel and U.S. bases in the region if it comes under attack.

It has also threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, the neck of the Gulf through which 40 percent of the world’s sea-borne oil exports pass. Such a move would probably invite a military response from the United States.

Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that Iran’s military advances are purely for defensive purposes and should not be taken as a threat, but said they would dissuade world powers from imposing their will on Iran.

“Defensive advances are meant to defend human integrity, and are not meant to be offensive moves toward others,” Ahmadinejad said, according to Mehr news agency.

“I have no doubt that our defensive capabilities can stand up to bullying and put a halt to their plans.”

The United States has also not ruled out military action against Iran but says the priority of world powers remains the use of diplomacy and sanctions to rein in its nuclear activity.

Among the upgrades was a fourth generation of the Fateh-110 missile, which boasts a range of about 300 km (180 miles).

Iran said earlier this month that it had successfully test-fired the new model and that it was equipped with a more accurate guidance system.

“This missile is one of the most precise and advanced land-to-land ballistic missiles using solid fuel,” Vahidi was quoted as saying by Fars news agency. “In the last decade it has had a significant role in promoting the Islamic Republic of Iran’s defence capabilities.”

In July, Iran said it had successfully test-fired medium-range missiles capable of hitting Israel, and tested dozens of missiles aimed at simulated air bases.

It also presented a more powerful, 5,000-horsepower sea-borne engine, the Bonyan-4, Fars quoted Vahidi as saying. A previous version had 1,000 horsepower, the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA) said.

SCEPTICISM

Military experts have cast doubt on Iran’s claims of weapons advances, especially its assertions about its missile program, saying Tehran often exaggerates its capabilities.

“The Fateh-110 has a crude guidance and control system that operates during the missile’s ascent” rather than during final descent, said Michael Elleman, senior fellow for missile defence at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

“The Fateh-110 appears to lack the subsystems needed to effect terminal steering,” he said in an email.

Iran also presented Armita, an “airborne laboratory” to help test aircraft launch systems and oxygen generation and train fighter pilots, Fars reported.

Vahidi said it was named after the daughter of Dariush Rezaeinejad, an Iranian scientist who was shot dead last year.

Iran believes agents working with foreign intelligence services including the American CIA and Israel’s Mossad are behind the assassinations of several of its nuclear scientists.

When Israel strikes Iran in October……


Israel is in a political and security quandary.

Officials are convinced it’s only a matter of time before Iran uses its nuclear capability against the Jewish state, living up to the dire threats its leaders have been making for years now.
But Israeli leaders also fear they will lose the window of opportunity to deal a devastating military blow to Iran’s nuclear development if such a strike is not conducted by October of this year.

Why?

Because they believe Barack Obama has a reasonable expectation of being re-elected to the White House – and, if he is, he is likely, unconstrained by concerns about a future election, to be a political liability in the wake of such an action.

However, if the strike is made prior to the election, Obama is much more likely not to condemn Israel. It just wouldn’t be a popular political move for him. Even most Democrats in the U.S. Congress will support Israel’s right to defend itself.

But here’s the quandary – not only for Israel but for Americans who want to see Obama defeated in 2012: Will that kind of “October surprise” indeed help Obama to win the election?

Most Israeli leaders don’t want to see that. But what choice do they have when their nation’s survival is at stake?

Historically speaking, sitting presidents have a distinct political advantage during worldwide military crises. Will that be the case for Obama in the wake of a major military strike on Iran in October, just weeks or days before the vote?

On the one hand, most Israeli leaders would like to see Obama, the harshest critic of Israel ever to reside in the White House, be defeated in November. But, on the other hand, they have their own nation’s self-interest hanging in the balance.

Likewise, most Americans will have no problem with Israel defending itself, especially those most likely to oppose Obama in November, but will they be willing to change horses in the middle of an international crisis?
No one is talking about this, but because the November election is likely to be close, this “October surprise” could well provide the tipping point for Obama.

Or, are Americans so fed up with the deteriorating economy and the leadership of Obama that they will overlook instability in the world and vote their pocketbooks and good sense?

I don’t know the answer to this question, but it’s something to think about.

The likelihood of this attack is growing. The timing is nearly predictable. Yet, Americans and the U.S. media have not focused much attention on it.

The only thing that might change the equation is if Mitt Romney soars far ahead of Obama in the polls, effectively buying Israel more time to make its strike without major political fallout from the U.S.

As it stands now, the election is too close to call – and, in the minds of Israeli leaders, the strong possibility of an Obama re-election must be considered in the equation. As long as that is the case, you can take it to the bank that October is the likely time for a strike on Iran.

Personally, I am much more optimistic that Obama will be voted out of office in November. But I wouldn’t bet my life on it. And neither is Israel willing to bet its life on it.

That’s why 2012′s “October surprise” might not be so surprising at all – for those who understand the politics of the Middle East.

Leaked Document….Israel’s War Plan: the Complete Destruction of Iran’s Civilian Infrastructure


From the document:

The Israeli attack will open with a coordinated strike, including an unprecedented cyber-attack which will totally paralyze the Iranian regime and its ability to know what is happening within its borders. The internet, telephones, radio and television, communications satellites, and fiber optic cables leading to and from critical installations—including underground missile bases at Khorramabad and Isfahan—will be taken out of action. The electrical grid throughout Iran will be paralyzed and transformer stations will absorb severe damage from carbon fiber munitions which are finer than a human hair, causing electrical short circuits whose repair requires their complete removal. This would be a Sisyphean task in light of cluster munitions which would be dropped, some time-delayed and some remote-activated through the use of a satellite signal.

A barrage of tens of ballistic missiles would be launched from Israel toward Iran. 300km ballistic missiles would be launched from Israeli submarines in the vicinity of the Persian Gulf. The missiles would not be armed with unconventional warheads [WMD], but rather with high-explosive ordnance equipped with reinforced tips designed specially to penetrate hardened targets.

The missiles will strike their targets—some exploding above ground like those striking the nuclear reactor at Arak–which is intended to produce plutonium and tritium—and the nearby heavy water production facility; the nuclear fuel production facilities at Isfahan and facilities for enriching uranium-hexaflouride. Others would explode under-ground, as at the Fordo facility.

A barrage of hundreds of cruise missiles will pound command and control systems, research and development facilities, and the residences of senior personnel in the nuclear and missile development apparatus. Intelligence gathered over years will be utilized to completely decapitate Iran’s professional and command ranks in these fields.

After the first wave of attacks, which will be timed to the second, the “Blue and White” radar satellite, whose systems enable us to perform an evaluation of the level of damage done to the various targets, will pass over Iran. Only after rapidly decrypting the satellite’s data, will the information be transferred directly to war planes making their way covertly toward Iran. These IAF planes will be armed with electronic warfare gear previously unknown to the wider public, not even revealed to our U.S. ally. This equipment will render Israeli aircraft invisible. Those Israeli war planes which participate in the attack will damage a short-list of targets which require further assault.

Among the targets approved for attack—Shihab 3 and Sejil ballistic missile silos, storage tanks for chemical components of rocket fuel, industrial facilities for producing missile control systems, centrifuge production plants and more.

EMP.
“If Israel chooses one of its Jericho III missiles to detonate a single EMP warhead at high altitude over north central Iran, there will be with no blast or radiation effects on the ground.”
Coupled with cyber-attacks, Iranians would not know it happened except for a massive shutdown of the electric power grid, oil refineries and a transportation gridlock. Food supply would be exhausted and communication would be largely impossible, leading to economic collapse. Similarly, the uranium enrichment centrifuges in Fordo, Natanz and widely scattered elsewhere, would freeze for decades.

Iran’s response to an EMP attack would be futile and uncannily tragic. Before the elite Qods force could mine the Strait of Hormuz and wreak havoc to Arab Gulf states oil refineries, the Fifth Fleet and U.S. military installations, Iran’s administrative-industrial-military complex infrastructures would have been laid to waste without the ruling clerical regime knowing about it.

Netanyahu picks new security minister as Iran strike debated


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chose a former security chief on Tuesday as his new civil defense minister amid heightened public debate over a possible strike on Iran.

Avraham Dichter, who has served as internal security minister and head of the Shin Bet, Israel’s domestic intelligence agency, has said in the past he would prefer Israel not to go it alone in any attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Washington has urged Israel to allow more time for diplomacy to rein in Iran’s nuclear programme, which Tehran says is peaceful. But Israeli officials have said lagging talks by major powers with Iran to reduce its uranium enrichment have given Tehran more time to come closer to developing a nuclear weapon.

Israeli commentators described Dichter, 59, as close to both Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak, the two top decision-makers in any future military action against Iran. Dichter was a member of the elite commando unit where they once served.

Confirming the appointment, Netanyahu said Dichter “will now have an important assignment to assist in what he has been involved in all his life, contributing to state security.”

Dichter will replace former general Matan Vilnai, recently named as Israel’s ambassador to China. On his Facebook page, Dichter said he had accepted the cabinet post, making no mention of Iran.

In a sign of mounting Israeli concern, Netanyahu told his cabinet on Sunday that most other threats to Israeli security were “dwarfed” by the prospect of Iran producing an atomic warhead.

Israel has been “investing billions in home-front defence,” Netanyahu also said, adding to media speculation his cabinet might be mulling a possible attack.

The Israeli military has this week been testing a text message emergency notification service in about a dozen cities. A television station reported on Sunday that Israel expected to sustain as many as 50,000 missile strikes in the event of any conflict with Iran.

In remarks to reporters in February, Dichter said that Israel “is not a superpower” and should “not lead a world offensive against Iran” although it needed to prepare in case the world did not take action.

Netanyahu recruited Dichter, the son of Holocaust survivors, from the centrist Kadima party that left his government last month after a short-lived political alliance.

Dichter led the Shin Bet during a Palestinian uprising a decade ago, and was widely seen as responsible for a policy of assassinating leading militants blamed for involvement in suicide bombings against Israelis.
