End Times Watch 46 - EMP Attack: Overlooked Catastrophe
– Hal Lindsey -
End times watch 46 - When Iran successfully launched its
first domestically made satellite into orbit on Feb. 1, U.S. State Department
official Robert Wood said Iran's activities could "possibly lead to the
development of ballistic missiles" and were of "great concern."
French Foreign Ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier said
France was "very concerned" about the launch.
UK Foreign Office Minister Bill Rammell said the launch
underlined the UK's "serious concerns about Iran's intentions." Then they
resumed their focus on their various economic implosions where "concerned" had
been elevated to "alarmed."
What continues to astonish me is how little Western nations
seem to grasp the tremendous danger that Iran is signaling in plain view. I have
produced at least two television shows and as many articles in which I sought to
warn of Iran's intention to use its rapidly developing nuclear warheads in an
EMP attack against Israel, the EU and the U.S. – end times watch.
In an article I wrote for WorldNetDaily in July 2007, I
noted a 1998 Iranian missile test that "failed, detonating some 40 seconds after
launch after reaching an altitude of 180 miles. This is the approximate ideal
altitude to detonate a nuclear warhead for an EMP attack on a country."
I was astonished at how little attention Western military
planners gave Iran's successful satellite launch. What little attention it did
get focused on the probability that Iran could use the satellite launch
technology to build an ICBM.
Launching an EMP attack with rather simple nuclear bombs is
far easier than developing long-range ballistic nuclear missiles for a direct
attack. It is also considerably safer for the attacking country.
Caroline Glick noted recently in the Jerusalem Post that an
"article published in Iran's security journal Nashriyeh-e Siasi Nezami in 1999
identified an EMP attack as a way to defeat the U.S. as a military power and as
a state." End times watch.
It is also worth noting that a nuclear weapon detonated 180
miles above the United States would generate an EMP pulse that experts say would
instantly plunge half the country into the technological 1800s. End times
Now that Iran is capable of launching satellites, Tehran
needn't worry about developing ICBM capabilities. In the same Jerusalem Post
article, Glick writes, "Three to five nuclear bombs of any size, launched into
space on satellites and detonated above the U.S., Europe and Asia would send
Western Civilization back to the 19th century.
It is simply astonishing that Western intelligence agencies
are ignoring the threat posed by an Iranian satellite-launched EMP attack.
To put the most advanced nations on earth back
technologically by a full century is the ultimate strategy. And Iran has
signaled in plain language and actions that an EMP strike against the West is
the most likely scenario. As noted above, Iran's mullah's have openly discussed
the use of an EMP attack against the U.S.
An EMP attack by Iran on Israel, the U.S. and EU would
overnight send the most technically developed nations on earth back to the
middle of the 19th century. All our electrical grids would be destroyed. There
would be no communications by satellite, TV, radios, telephones; no
transportation as we know it, no water, no fuel, no electricity, no food, no
stoves, no heat, no air-conditioning, no functioning hospitals, no elevators, no
law and order, no computers, no banks, very little work force. In addition,
there would be very few military weapons systems that would work.
In the light of this, we should immediately begin to make
back-ups for our most essential infrastructure systems. We should shield as many
critical electrical systems as possible as fast as we can.
At the same time, we should do whatever is necessary to
stop Iran from getting nuclear bombs. Expensive? Yes! But not nearly as
expensive as it will be after an EMP attack. I believe that if we don't do
something immediately, that attack will come. End times watch.
I never thought I would say this, but just maybe this is
the reason that in chapter 38 of Ezekiel he predicts that the armies that invade
Israel in the last days are all riding horses. Could it be that Ezekiel's
prophecy is more literal than any of us dared to believe?
