North Korea launched a ballistic missile from a submarine in a show of strength to the world. While most do not consider North Korea a threat to the United States they continue to make gains in technology and military might. This latest demonstration is concerning. Consider EMP. A North Korean sub parks itself off the coast of Washington and launches a missile above the United States.
“Impossible” you say?
Watch this video from an apparent missile launch back in 2010 off the coast of California. The US military stated that the contrail was NOT from any of their aircraft and they had no missile launches on that day. Many believe that the missile actually came from a Chinese sub as a warning to the Obama Administration due to political frustrations going on at the time. Those believing it was a Chinese sub stated that the US could not admit to the possibility as it would be too embarrassing. Regardless – someone launched a missile off the coast of the United States.
Back to North Korea: This latest development is just another reason to “stay frosty my friends” and keep prepping. I used to dismiss EMP as a serious potential threat. Not any more and I haven’t for quite some time. The world continues to become more and more dangerous.
Keep stocking up on food, water, medical supplies, firearms, etc. Due to the EMP threat create an “EMP kit”. This may be an ammo can(or twelve) filled with communication equipment and other electronic devices which you would want to protect just in case. Research the proper method to protect your supplies.
