America’s Achilles Heel Might Be The Target Of The Greatest Revolution In Military Affairs In History, Rendering Obsolete Most Traditional Instruments Of Military Power – Cyber Warfare Could Bring The Total Collapse Of Society, Rampant Diseases And Mass Starvation By Dr. William R. Graham, Ambassador R. James Woolsey And Dr. Peter Vincent Pry

The White House EMP Executive Order responds to the blue ribbon Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack, established by Congress in 2001, that has been warning that:

“A long-term outage owing to EMP could disable most critical supply chains, leaving the U.S. population living in conditions similar to centuries past, prior to the advent of electric power. In the 1800s, the U.S. population was less than 60 million, and those people had many skills and assets necessary for survival without today’s infrastructure. An extended blackout today could result in the death of a large fraction of the American people through the effects of societal collapse, disease, and starvation. While national planning and preparation for such events could help mitigate the damage, few such actions are currently underway or even being contemplated.” (EMP Commission Executive Report, Assessing the Threat from EMP Attack, July 2017)
