If you live near the Gulf of Mexico, you are the front line to an eminent threat to all Americans. The electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from a nuclear weapon exploded a hundred miles above the U.S. could kill 60-90 percent of all Americans. The powers that be should urgently address this well known threat that could be launched by Iran or Terrorists from a ship in the Gulf. By Ambassador Cooper.

On October 22, 1962, President Kennedy announced the Soviets were deploying nuclear weapons in Cuba. In those 13 days of crisis, we were closer to the brink of nuclear holocaust than we then realized. Now we could face a new crisis from the south—from ballistic missiles launched from ships in the Gulf of Mexico or Venezuela.
North Korea is a mortal nuclear threat to the United States, right now! Any nuclear weapon detonated above an altitude of 30 kilometers (18 miles) will generate an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that will destroy electronics and could collapse the electric power grid and other critical infrastructures — communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water — that sustain modern civilization and the lives of 300 million Americans. All could be destroyed by a single nuclear weapon making an EMP attack. By Peter Pry.
National Geographic provides an excellent documentary on the causes and effects of an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP), which is possible through either the natural effects of a large solar flare or by a terrorist attack on the United States. This documentary is well worth 42 minutes of your time.
In August 2012, The Heritage Foundation hosted a roundtable on the effects of an Electromagnetic Pulse. The event was hosted by James Jay Carafano, Ph.D., Vice President, Foreign and Defense Policy Studies, and Director, The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies. High Frontier hopes you will invest the time to watch this important discussion about the effects of Electromagentic Pulse.
As U.S. troops withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan, Iran rapidly broadens its reach to undergird a global strategy to threaten Americans at home and abroad—and our overseas friends and allies. U.S. missile-defenses need to adapt to this increased threat and to broader Iranian influence in the Middle East. By Henry F. Cooper and Robert L. Pfaltzgraff.
