Since this thread is about EMP-Korea Concerns, I will discuss North Korean behavior, its threat towards us, rather than what we may or may not do to stop him.

I don’t have time, this morning to link to all of the appropriate source material, but I have been studying this guy for a while and I think he needs to do:
at least one more nuclear detonation test, and
at least two more test flights for Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles
(not medium or intermediate range),
before he will launch on us.

I think he needs to do at least one more submarine launched ballistic missile also,
but maybe not.

After he does those things,
it’s pretty much just a matter of time till he starts
(or restarts, depending on how you look at it) the war.

I think you are on the right path. I’m just not convinced that he is going to emp us uniess we do something major first. If he does i think he understands we can and will respond. We likely would not take the path of an emp as they dont appear to have enough grid to bother with. Interesting times for sure.

Lets face it. We are not going to do anything about them. Their nuclear program is fully established now. We will not be attacking them nor will we nuke them as they seem to fear. The window has passed and if we were or are going to respond our country needs to stfu. If we are going to attack then do it. No warnings, rhetoric, nothing. Put all the toys on the table for all to see with the notice that they have been given to option to correct the path they are on. If we respond then do so in a no holds barred method so that others thinking this is a good choice understand that it is not a game and we will meet force with overwhelming force. That is all anyone will understand in my opinion.

They should be shot on sight.

First statement I made to my wife. Looked like the same old “entitlement” group to me too. The few issues in Texas were handled properly in my opinion. Execution on the spot. :x

This is a thread that is supposed to be about EMP, and I have totally failed to address that here. :shakeno:
Maybe in another post.

Just to get back on the subject of EMP, I have been thinking that the idea that the satellites being EMP devices is pretty far fetched, so I weeded my way thought this (not the first time):
http://ece-research.unm.edu/summa/notes/TheoreticalPDFs/TN368.pdf
And my inclinations are right. To provide a reasonably powerful (from a military viewpoint) pulse requires a relatively powerful nuclear device. When he put those satellites in orbit, he didn’t have a device powerful enough to justify attempting to use it as an EMP weapon. This latest thermonuclear device is powerful enough, but it is the first device powerful enough to be useful at the altitude those satellites are orbiting. In addition, his warheads have all weighed more than three times as much as those satellites are estimated to weigh, since he just didn’t have the miniaturization technology to make them any smaller, until this year.

Bottom line, the satellites cannot be an EMP threat.

Well, maybe. It is clear he has had some help with developing his current “toys”. Who is to say one of the usual players didn’t donate him a few things to play with back then. My thought is your likely correct but part of war is psychological so again, whose to say? :?

I’ve been wondering about THAAD too, if it works why don’t they shoot those down?

My thought is we also are making psychological moves preemptive to war. I remember when the first gulf war started. A multitude of weapons never heard of or if there had been conversation of were never confirmed until unleashed. We as a country would be fools for playing all our cards at once in my opinion. Good poker players maintain a good “poker face”. War will not be pretty but backed into a corner we will have no option but to bite back so if that happens we need to “bite” hard enough that we convince others to back off. Again, just my opinion as a current keyboard warrior.

NIP, when was the site software last updated. Looks like an old version. Im just wondering since on one of my sites I had to go up to a newer stable version of php to be compatible. Might be newer php with old software or vise versa causing a conflict. Just a thought.

Mine is a bit more interesting…. I get this when checking out…

You were not logged out, as the request did not match your session. Please contact the board administrator if you continue to experience problems.

Never have experienced this anywhere. Not sure when the site software has actually been updated but it is likely “cookies” or an expired / unsupported addon like the

Advertisement Management

link at the bottom of the page. The other alternative is the site has been attacked / hacked / or suffered from a “dirty” ad which I have found on occasion with some sites. I will say after the upgrade not long ago the site was far more responsive and fast. Not sure about this issue though. After some reading it appears it could be the hosting and or cache.

All records are backed up on hard copy for anything important, either privately or by the companies. Land records, medical records, bank statements are all on paper so why all the press on this? Could someone please explain to me why this is such a big deal.

Because some businesses relied on those infected machines to do day to day business. Worse yet, were the hospitals in the UK that had to turn patients away because medical records weren’t available (they haven’t used paper records in years.)

Sure, for a home user it’s not the end of the world, although losing pictures of dead loved ones is traumatic they will survive. But most businesses can’t run on paper anymore, so when the machines go down, most work stops.

So hospitals or businesses run antiquated software and then there is an issue that they have no backups or a fail-safe system for. With the obscene amounts charged for medical care I find little compassion for them. Sadly, it is the end user or consumer that ends up paying in the end. I think this is a simple wake-up call to those that rely on others systems or efforts to protect their personal data. At work we use systems that lock down most everything and are mostly internally locked to specific IP’s and there is a reason for that. All required records that we must maintain are converted to microfiche fairly early on and with a bit of effort this can be searched easily. Guess I would be happy to just return to the old days when records seemed better protected.

Pennsylvania Discussion, News and Weather • Re: PA: Blizzard on the Way! Ugh!

March 14, 2017 Straydog 0

I’ve been chuckling over this all day. Schools officially closed here in NY by edict of his immenseness the &%&*%**^ Cuomo. Shut the schools down statewide since we might get some snow. Really? We have not had serious snow here in years, minus the 7′ that fell in Buffalo a few years back. None of our winters are anything like they used to be and we are in the prime lake effect region. We are used to having serious snow so 20″ really is not a big deal. Sure, the wind could kick up, it might force people to slow down a bit. It won’t make people think to prepare ahead of time and I can only imagine how many generators, gallons of milk, and loaves of bread were sold. Likely cases of water too. These days the news and those in charge hype every little thing to the point of idiocy while paying no attention to important things. So, I will enjoy the roads to myself hopefully as I make my daily commute to work. I won’t have time to worry about a few snowflakes. Real or Liberal… :dots:

From what I know the House already has approved it but we still need some more votes in the Senate.

Now if only we can get NY a kick in the back side to fall inline….. :dots:
