As terrorist regimes acquire nuclear capability, fears of the devastation wrought by a nuclear attack are on the rise. However, a seldom discussed, yet more insidious threat looms on the horizon – the risk of an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack – a catastrophe that could instantly transform America from a superpower to a pre-industrial society.
Such an attack would destroy the U.S. electrical grid and lead to infrastructure failure that would result in food shortages, starvation, disease, and civil unrest. Of course, Israel, Europe, Japan and other countries are equally vulnerable and could suffer severe disruptions to their economic, healthcare and security systems.
The Congressional EMP Commission recently released their final report – verifying both the danger and the fact that Israel and the United States have not taken adequate steps to protect themselves from the effects of a nuclear EMP Strike. Further, both countries are priority targets for destruction.
Please join us for an informative panel discussion of today’s nuclear threats.
Panelists will include Center for Security Policy founder Frank Gaffney; EMPACT, Israel Missile Defense Association executive director Avi Schnurr; and former Commanding General of the United States Army Intelligence Center, Major General James (Spider) Marks. Writer and activist Janet Levy will moderate the panel for this critical topic.
Frank Gaffney was Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy under President Reagan. He is the Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. and has been warning about the EMP threat for several years which he wrote about in his recent book “War Footing.”
Avi Schnurr is a 25 year veteran of Northrop-Grumman and executive director of the Israeli Missile Defense Association, and president of the EMPACT, an international coalition whose mission is to raise awareness and plan for the possibility of an EMP attack.
