“I continue to be concerned about Iranian malign activity in the region to include here [in Iraq], and the possibility of Iranian aggression and the possibility that Iran will not obey the agreement, which we’ll find out, because there’s got to be inspections and [verification] and so forth . . . We will keep the military option, which was the alternative to a deal . . . [It] doesn’t solve all problems over in this part of the world, and it doesn’t solve all problems emanating from Iran. …It’s an agreement that places important limitations upon Iran, places no limits on us, and it doesn’t place any limits on anything we do with anybody in this region.” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to the Troops in Iraq, as reported by Breitbart News on July 24.

The Deal with Iran is a bad, bad deal—and the debate over its future acceptance will no doubt be very political in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, this debate ignores an existing Iranian capability to attack the United States with nuclear weapons they may rapidly obtain, if they don’t have them already. And this means of attack poses an existential threat to all Americans—just what the Iranian mullahs and their followers say they want when they chant “Death to America.” Beware of an EMP attack from a satellite launched southward from Iran (or North Korea). Wake up America!
On July 9, 1962 — 53 years ago— the United States detonated a 1.4 megaton nuclear device 240 miles above Johnston Island in the South Pacific. The immediate effects of Starfish Prime were felt 900 miles away in Hawaii and damaged our satellites early our venture into space following the Soviet Union’s 1957 “Sputnik” that shocked America into action. Its consequences prompted a far-reaching response that remained highly classified until only seven years ago. Most Americans remain oblivious to the existential threat to all we hold dear posed by largely ignored lessons learned from that fateful day. Time to wake-up!
Within a three hours period last Friday, jihadis killed about 60 persons and wounded several hundred others in three nation states. Friday’s attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait came days after the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group called for such operations during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan (June 17-July 17). Was this “Bloody Friday” an introduction to more such terrorism during the next several weeks? Within what geographic limits? Within the United States? Something to consider for this Fourth of July?
“. . . Years ago, before the East Germans began rebuilding their churches, they erected a secular structure: the television tower at Alexander Platz. Virtually ever since, the authorities have been working to correct what they view as the tower’s one major flaw, treating the glass sphere at the top with paints and chemicals of every kind. Yet even today when the sun strikes that sphere–that sphere that towers over all Berlin—the light makes the sign of the cross. There in Berlin, like the city itself, symbols of love, symbols of worship, cannot be suppressed. . .” ~ President Ronald Reagan at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12, 1987
The name “Old Crows” emerged from the first large-scale use of Electronic Warfare (EW) during the WWII Battle of Britain and the US and allied bombing raids over Europe. The Allied Radar Countermeasure operators used the code name “Ravens” and employed receivers and transmitters to monitor and jam threat frequencies. Military jargon later changed “Ravens” to “Crows.” The International Association of Old Crows (AOC) is celebrating its 50th anniversary—and exploring how best to join the elements of electronic warfare and cyber technologies to deal with the elements of modern warfare. Electromagnetic pulse considerations should also be included.
“Now that Washington cannot or will not defend the United States from nuclear EMP attack, some States are “building walls” to protect their electric grids and peoples from the new EMP and cyber barbarians of the 21st Century.” ~ Dr. Peter Vincent Pry
“America is not prepared to be without water, electricity, telephones, computer networks, heating, air conditioning, transportation (cars, subways, buses, airplanes), and banking. All the benefits of our just-in-time economy would come to a deadly halt, including the production of petroleum products, clothing, groceries and medicine. Think about cities without electricity to pump water to their residents.” ~ Letter to President Obama from Americans concerned about the America created by a manmade or natural EMP event
