As the world grows increasingly unstable, threats to our homeland are coming from every direction, including from up above. There’s two satellites orbiting above our country that shouldn’t be there, and their capabilities are beyond terrifying, especially considering who owns them.
In recent months, we’ve heard more and more about North Korea’s unstable leader developing small nuclear weapons while threatening to use them on America. But as it turns out, Kim Jong-un’s little nukes might not be our largest threat.
In fact, according to a new report from Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, a prominent national security expert, a nuclear attack from one of the smaller bombs being developed would be a walk in the park compared to what’s on the two satellites N. Korea has orbiting over America. In an interview with Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, Pry detailed the serious threat facing our nation from the satellites – KMS 3-2 and KMS 4 – that are orbiting at an altitude of 300 miles above the earth – a distance that puts them out of reach of our missile defense systems.
“The threat,” Pry said, “continues to race, hare-like, at an alarming rate, compared to the tortoise pace of our preparations.”
According to Pry, the satellites have two different means in which they can attack America. One of the methods would be to deorbit, then hit a target on the ground. The other, and much more terrifying, is to explode at a high altitude to create an EMP effect that would knock out the U.S. national electric grid system and all of the critical, life-sustaining infrastructures that depend on it.
Pry isn’t exactly a novice when it comes to national security. He’s the executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and the director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, both of which are Congressional advisory boards. He’s also an analyst with the CIA, and served on the Congressionally mandated EMP commission.
In other words, he knows what he’s talking about.
He said that our government is well aware that the satellites pass over America twice a day, but that it’s incapable of determining their payloads. He also said during a testimony to Canada’s Security and Defence Committee that an EMP attack is the “biggest existential threat that our civilization faces right now.”
The report from Pry comes after N. Korea has been developing a hydrogen bomb and planning its fourth underground detonation. The bomb itself is designed to be low yield, but produce high levels of gamma rays for an EMP attack rather than destroying ground targets.
North Korea’s unhinged leader has also called for his rocket forces to prepare for an attack on America. He’s even released propaganda videos depicting New York and Washington, D.C. being nuked by his military.
