When I read a Washington Times article (see link below) about China building electromagnetic pulse weapons that they might use against Taiwan – and also against the U.S. if we’re there protecting Taiwan – I was shocked to learn that this phenomenon was actually discovered 50 years ago.
The article says, and I quote, “Portions of a National Ground Intelligence Center study on the lethal effects of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and high-powered microwave (HPM) weapons revealed that the arms are part of China’s so-called ‘assassin’s mace’ arsenal – weapons that allow a technologically inferior China to defeat U.S. military forces.”
Seriously? If this is a legitimate weapon that could be used against us, why are we just now finding out about it? Why has this been hidden from the American public? Does the U.S. have those same kinds of weapons, and if so, are we prepared to use them? Please read this article right away and meet me on the other side:
Frank’s Top 3 Threats
The way I see it, the top three things we need to be worrying about here are:
- China could attack our aircraft carriers near Taiwan with EMPs.
- China could directly attack the U.S. mainland with EMPs.
- China could force us to respond with nuclear weapons.
What do you think? Would China use EMPs and HPMs against us if we were protecting Taiwan against them? If so, what would stop them from using it against the U.S. mainland if a war accelerated? And if they did use these weapons against us, should we have a nuclear response? Let me know what you think.
