They don't discuss this warhead but they do mention the electrical grid.So if a push comes to a shove in the Ukraine this could be how they would attack us in retaliation. It's not going to be pretty with all the chess pieces they have to move around the globe now!

A defense official said the missile that concerns the Northcom commander is the Russian KH-101 cruise missile which Russia has developed as a weapon to attack critical infrastructure in the United States, such as the electrical grid.

The comments highlight what defense officials and military analysts say is the growing threat of long-range cruise missiles.

Cruise missiles pose unique threats because they can defeat defenses by flying at low altitudes, avoiding radars, and hiding behind terrain. Some newer cruise missiles have radar-evading stealth features making them even less visible to radar or infrared detectors.

The low-flying missiles also can overwhelm defenses by attacking with multiple missiles coming from different directions and defeating air defenses at their weakest points. They also can fly circuitous routes to reach targets, avoiding radar and air defenses.

    And yet they know that if they do, we launch ours.

    Mutually assured destruction.

    So far nobody is insane enough to try.

    we soon will not need weapons as our open borders will allow all our enemies to be to close to strike without doing us more harm than good

    True however an EMP bomb is not a nuclear bomb and would not kill off the population all at once but it would take down a modern society to a point where it could no longer have internal cohesion and kill off the weak,the sick and the old quickly.

    It's a diabolical Illuminati plan in my opinion. Out of Chaos will come a brutal new world order. No debt,no weak or old and no arguments who is in control.

    I don't think there ever was, or ever will be, in the history of music, a band who absolutely sucked as bad as the Sex Pistols did!!

    Completely devoid of even the remotest shred of talent!

    I don't see any difference between EMP and a nuc.

    And my thought is the leadership would see it as the same. We have enough boomers that would be unaffected and retaliation would final and effective.

    Again it would an insane act.

    If we got hit with an EMP it would be a disaster. It would put us back to about the year 1850. No cars or trucks would run. No electricity.
    In 5 days, no food at the grocery store, no water.
    Millions would die. It would be a calamity that would compare with nothing we have ever seen in this country.

    True enough Allen - but the majority of the dead would be those who exist only through goobermint handouts. They don't know how, never have, and can't work to provide for themselves. They would, however, continue to do what they do best: steal.
    I may be a bit crazy - but I didn't drive myself.

    The first to go would be the diabetics. Then think of the chaos as all of the overmedicated Americans taking psychotropic drugs are abruptly cut off from their supply. Add no clean drinking water or refrigeration and we're talking about all the worst parts of the Bible coming to fruition.

    The radiation signature is the difference just like a tactical neutron bomb. It leaves the land and buildings to be habitable in a shorter time frame.

    And who knows if our government entity would use nuclear bombs that effectively leave earth inhabitable for too long to spring back from the cusp of total destruction.

    This is a good point. I remember Pop talking about patrolling off the coast of Europe on the USS Daniel Webster. He said that if a certain periodic signal was not received at a certain time, they were to launch their 16 Polaris missiles with nuclear warheads at pre-programmed targets.

    The Webster was one of many.
