It is an honor to announce my collaboration as a Senior Fellow with EMPact America.
EMPact America is a bipartisan organization of citizens concerned about protecting the American people from a nuclear or natural electromagnetic pulse (EMP) catastrophe.
Two congressional commissions, the EMP Commission and the Strategic Posture Commission, have warned that terrorists, rogue states, China and Russia could, using a single crude nuclear weapon delivered by a primitive missile, inflict an EMP attack that would cause the collapse of critical civilian infrastructures — such as electric power, telecommunications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water — across the entire continental United States. These are vital for the sustenance of our modern society and the survival of its citizens.
EMPact America has been at the forefront of raising awareness and educating our public officials of the need to pass the SHIELD Act, to amend the Federal Power Act to protect the bulk-power system and electric infrastructure critical to the defense and well-being of the United States against natural and manmade electromagnetic pulse (“EMP”) threats and vulnerabilities.
I will soon put out a new column that urges all Americans to pressure our politicians into protecting America’s infrastructures before it will be too late for all of us.
It is interesting that the Iranian website Gerdab.ir, which is run by the Revolutionary Guards, yesterday ran an editorial titled “With an Attack by Iran, The Life Will End in America,” analyzing my recent article in the Washington Times (“KAHLILI: Iranian missiles could soon reach U.S. shores”). Without denying its facts, the Iranian editorial states that the Western media is worried about Iran’s progress in developing the capability to launch an attack on America from international waters. The editorial mentions EMPact America and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry’s statement, reflected in my Times article, about the nightmare scenario of an EMP attack by Iran that, without leaving a fingerprint, could destroy America’s infrastructure and American lives.
The Jihadists ruling Iran are preparing for the demise of America. The time for action is now. We can no longer vacillate.
Get informed. Contact your representative and senator and ask for the passage of the SHIELD Act (HR 668), currently before the House, so that America’s vital grid components will be protected.
