2. EMP and Cyber Warfare – An Unprecedented Challenge’ To US National Security
New-design nuclear weapons — and new operational plans — are needed for deterring and defeating the new way of warfare being planned by our potential enemies. Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran plan a revolution in military affairs combining cyber-attacks with a nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to decisively defeat enemy military forces and paralyze entire nations.
They envision using low-yield nuclear weapons, specially designed to generate EMP, what Russia calls Super-EMP weapons. EMP attack detonates a warhead in outer space. So no blast, radiation, or other nuclear effects reach the ground, only the EMP. Nuclear EMP attack is variously described by Russian, Chinese, and others as “Electronic Warfare,” “Information Warfare,” or “Cyber Warfare” — but not nuclear warfare.

10. The Bottom Of The News
+ He thought he just had blisters from a hike. He had flesh-eating bacteria and nearly died – Wayne Atkins thought little of the blisters he had gotten while hiking. He was trekking up and down the 4,500-foot-high Mount Garfield in New Hampshire — 10-miles round-trip — and blisters were no surprise. The blisters didn’t go away. In fact, they started hurting more than Atkins expected, according to the news station. And he started feeling ill. What Atkins didn’t know at the time was that his blisters had allowed Group A streptococcus to enter his body. Anyone who has ever had strep throat should recognize the bacteria’s name. But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year, 11,000 to 13,000 people are infected with an invasive form of strep A disease that can cause blood infection or pneumonia.
