Oh, how wonderful...and what could be done in 'warfare' could just as easily be done to an individual or group to knock out and destroy their computers and communication equipment forever. Our culture is lethal - completely dominated by those who love death, torture, destruction and power for themselves - removing it from everyone else - whether citizen or foreigner. Sick paradigm.

Here's the article, with my emphasis in bold:


Boeing has successfully tested an EMP missile that could be doomsday for Iran; media have largely ignored the development.

By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

December 05, 2012 "Israel National News" -- Boeing has successful tested an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) missile that turns “science fiction into science fact” and could be the doomsday weapon against Iran, but media have largely ignored the development.

The U.S. Air Force and Boeing demonstrated the device more than two months ago over a military site in the Utah desert, reported the VR-Zone technology website.

Boeing did not keep the test a secret, but most mainstream media and technology sites overlooked the report.

The test was codenamed CHAMP -- Counter-Electronics High Power Advanced Missile Project and was the first time a real EMP missile has been tested with positive real world results.

One of the most startling developments in the research and test is that the missile system does not use any explosives, thereby limiting damage to its intended goal of directing microwave energy that can cause instant blackouts.

Keith Coleman, who serves as Boeing’s CHAMP program manager in their Phantom Works division, stated that video camera showed “images of numerous desktop computers running, and then suddenly all of them go out quickly followed by the camera going to black,” VR-Zone reported.

“We hit every target we wanted to... Today we made science fiction, science fact,” said Coleman.

An Arutz Sheva opinion article in August mentioned Israel's possible use of an EMP bomb against Iran. The report triggered a chain reaction, allegedly influencing U.S. intelligence sources who have since been quoted in several publications with doubtful assumptions that the article reflected Israel government thinking.

The London Times subsequently reported that an EMP bomb could cripple Iran by shutting down its electronics and sending the Islamic Republic “back to the Stone Age.”


EMP causes non-lethal gamma energy to react with the magnetic field and produces a powerful electromagnetic shock wave that can destroy electronic devices, especially those used in Iran’s nuclear plants.

The shock wave would knock out Iran’s power grid and communications systems for transport and financial services, leading to economic collapse.

"Back to the Stone Age", eh?

Richard Armitage (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/5369198.stm), Colin Powell's "white son" and fixer thug, allegedly made precisely that threat when Pakistan wasn't doing what America wanted back in 2001...



The US threatened to bomb Pakistan "back to the stone age" unless it joined the fight against al-Qaeda, President Pervez Musharraf has said.

General Musharraf said the warning was delivered by former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage to Pakistan's intelligence director.

"I think it was a very rude remark," Gen Musharraf told CBS television.

I thought the Russians/Soviets had this years ago?

EMP was always a component of nuclear and neutron bomb weapons. Direct energy particle beam and high-power laser weapons can also do this on precise targets [all of the former are not new]. New is the use of microwaves [or so they say], and being able to fly over an area and rapidly and SELECTIVELY (or 'carpet bombing') electronic devices/buildings/areas. By the way, they will not just shut down the devices...they will NEVER work again - nor could they be repaired, and in most cases, little, if any, data stored would be recoverable. While they showed in the little cute video the shut-down of computers; I believe this would also shut down most electrical systems, control systems, many manufacturing/machining systems, sanitation systems, health and hospital equipment, mobile phones, sophisticated household appliances, communications systems, aviation - including civil, rockets and other guided weapons systems - almost anything that contains circuit boards and computer-type or electical-power-control components [i.e. just about everything, these days]. I would also question if it really is with microwaves that there wouldn't be collateral damage to all living things!!!!!!!!!

It is those who think up, design and deploy such weapons who are in the 'Stone Age'!

Yup.

The involvement of MSM, eg the "London Times", and the non-secret nature of the test, suggests this is Propaganda and PsyOp Threats, rather than New Technology.

The covert development of the science is probably several decades old.
