Resolve: We will proactively work with grass roots citizens and the local, state and federal “powers that be” to understand and respond effectively to the existential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) threat, particularly as delivered by ballistic missiles launched from vessels off our coasts, especially from the Gulf of Mexico; we will focus on empowering the National Guard to lead critically important efforts to achieve integrated measures for prevention and response.

If you live near the Gulf of Mexico, you are the front line to an emerging existential 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. Though efforts in 2013 made progress in gaining awareness of this key problem, much remains to be done to get the powers that be to address this well-known threat that could be launched by Iran or Terrorists from a ship in the Gulf.
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.
