An expert in electromagnetic pulse weapons has published an op-ed with The Hill in which he asserts Beijing may be planning just such an attack on the U.S., adding the nation is extremely vulnerable to just such an attack.
Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, chief of staff to the Congressional EMP Commission, wrote in his article that the coronavirus pandemic has exposed “dangerous weaknesses” in the American planning and preparation for civil defense situations. He added that potential enemies—including Russia, North Korea, Iran, and even China—as well as international terrorist organizations.
He further wrote, in part:
“The U.S. spent decades, and billions of dollars, supposedly preparing for biological warfare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the departments of Defense and Homeland Security are supposed to have contingency plans to protect the American people from lethal biological weapons such as anthrax and genetically engineered smallpox, which could have mortality rates of over 90 percent.
“But our defenders have not even been able to competently cope with COVID-19, which has a mortality rate under 1 percent. The White House took over management of the pandemic, apparently to compensate for the failure of the U.S. government to have adequately stockpiled such basics as ventilators, masks and pharmaceuticals.
“Hostile foreign powers surely have noticed the panicked, incompetent U.S. response to the virus that shut down a prosperous U.S. economy, self-inflicting the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The nationwide lockdowns brought shortages of all kinds, exposing societal and critical infrastructure fragility — and causing widespread fear …
“So it is very bad news, more than a year after President Trump issued an Executive Order on Coordinating Resilience Against Electromagnetic Pulses, that the Department of Energy (DOE) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have done nothing to protect the national electric grid or other critical infrastructures that sustain the lives of 330 million Americans.
Instead, non-expert bureaucrats conduct endless studies and conferences to wrangle over technical issues — in effect, reinventing the wheel regarding EMP — that were resolved long ago by real EMP experts. The “coordination process” for national EMP preparedness is the same kind of bureaucratic fumbling that Washington regards as “action,” which gave us the biological warfare unpreparedness and inability to properly respond to the coronavirus pandemic.”
Pry notes that in March, China’s military experts threatened to punish the U.S. Navy for challenging Beijing’s illegal annexation of the islands in the South China Sea. At the time, there was just one American aircraft carrier in the region, and the experts believed it would be the least provocative move. Now, there are three American carrier strike groups in the South China Sea.
