    I thought I understood how EMPs occurred. Turns out I didn't really get it. This was very informative for a short video.

    So, in essence when we talk about nuclear war, we aren’t talking about human and material devastation but a massive and total shutdown of all the electronics we depend on and just about everything is electronically operated in one way or another.

    Not a very nice prospect.

    That seems to be the future of nuclear war. Both the Russians and the Chinese view nuclear war as winnable by using mostly high-altitude burst to disable the other's power grid and electronics without creating a lot of fallout or direct casualties. Even the Russians tactical nukes are designed to minimize deaths but maximize EMP effects at ground level.

    One of the planks on Trump’s 2016 platform was to find ways to thwart an enemy EMP attack.
    Perhaps Space Force was primarily initiated for that purpose.

    Your right about that. Mad Max and lots of suffering for sure. Those who do prepare will be subject to those who don't.

    The Space Force may have been created for purposes we don't know about. The EMP issue could certainly be one. Both Russia and China have "assassin" satellites and that could have been part of it as well. There is also the Boeing X-37B craft that seems to do something or service something in orbit that is listed as a primary function of the Space Force.

    Either way it won't be pretty. Don this is really getting serious now. Just think how all those clowns in power don't even care about their own families, never did about ours.
