(We apologize..we had some board trouble and hope to recover this whole episode with Dr. Pry. However the rest of the program is excellent.)
This week we will be returning to the subject of electro-magnetic pulse weapons and the lack of security measures taken to harden our electrical grid and high-tech infrastructure against EMP attacks by the enemies of America.
The Russians and Chinese just held the largest joint military exercise in history called Vostok 18 with 300,000 troops, 36,000 tanks and other vehicles, 1,000 aircraft and 80 ships to simulate an attack against NATO and the United States following an EMP attack designed to take down our electrical grids and all communications links needed for defense. The use of EMP weapons is a very real threat to our national infrastructure and is a technology that is quite simple for anyone possessing nuclear weapon capability.
The Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, and Iranians have been developing these weapon systems for decades and still view America as their number 1 adversary in the New World Order.
Join us for a stimulating and enlightening overview of the need to harden our electrical grid and hi-tech infrastructure against a natural EMP event or attack by an enemy intent on our destruction.
Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a Congressional Advisory Board dedicated to achieving protection of the United States from electromagnetic pulse (EMP), cyber attack, mass destruction terrorism and other threats to civilian critical infrastructures on an accelerated basis.
Dr. Pry also is Director of the United States Nuclear Strategy Forum, an advisory board to Congress on policies to counter Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Dr. Pry served on the staffs of the Congressional Commission on the Strategic Posture of the United States (2008-2009); the Commission on the New Strategic Posture of the United States (2006-2008); and the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack (2001-2008).
Dr. Pry served as Professional Staff on the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) of the U.S. Congress, with portfolios in nuclear strategy, WMD, Russia, China, NATO, the Middle East, Intelligence, and Terrorism (1995-2001). While serving on the HASC, Dr. Pry was chief advisor to the Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and the Vice Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, and to the Chairman of the Terrorism Panel. Dr. Pry played a key role: running hearings in Congress that warned terrorists and rogue states could pose an EMP threat, establishing the Congressional EMP Commission, helping the Commission develop plans to protect the United States from EMP, and working closely with senior scientists who first discovered the nuclear EMP phenomenon.
Dr. Pry was an Intelligence Officer with the Central Intelligence Agency responsible for analyzing Soviet and Russian nuclear strategy, operational plans, military doctrine, threat perceptions, and developing U.S. paradigms for strategic warning (1985-1995). He also served as a Verification Analyst at the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency responsible for assessing Soviet compliance with strategic and military arms control treaties (1984-1985).
Dr. Pry has written numerous books on national security issues, including Apocalypse Unknown: The Struggle To Protect America From An Electromagnetic Pulse Catastrophe; Electric Armageddon: Civil-Military Preparedness For An Electromagnetic Pulse Catastrophe; War Scare: Russia and America on the Nuclear Brink; Nuclear Wars: Exchanges and Outcomes; The Strategic Nuclear Balance: And Why It Matters; and Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal.
Dr. Pry often appears on TV and radio as an expert on national security issues. The BBC made his book War Scare into a two-hour TV documentary Soviet War Scare 1983 and his book Electric Armageddon was the basis for another TV documentary Electronic Armageddon made by the National Geographic. His latest book EMP Manhattan Project is available at Amazon Books.
