I will probably write about EMP attacks more than other types of attacks. The reason is that I think that this is one of the most viable attacks from a foreign power that we could see in the future. I also think that it is one of the most dangerous attacks that we could see in a suburban and urban environment. The reason I say that is because all power is down there will be no food deliveries, all perishable foods, will do just that, perish in the heat of spring, summer, and fall weather. Not many will know how to preserve their meats, and I can assure you that not many have a cache of items such as powdered eggs, powdered milk, powdered butter, dehydrated vegetables, etc. that they can reconstitute at any time to cook a meal with, let alone having a garden where they can harvest their own foods.
People in NYC, NJ and other urban and suburban environments will be screwed. Food will have to come by water, assuming there are boats with electronics working. Meaning, food would have to be sailed in, and then disseminated to an angry mob. Other countries would have to come to our aid. Probably their military, sending ships of food, transportation, generators, pumps, etc. to our continent, and would very quickly (or as quickly as they could) be mobilized as law enforcement because they will have to tools to be just that.
Even I need to be more self sufficient. Another goal I am working towards.
To my point, however, I wanted to share this blog post with you around potential EMP attacks that I thought might be of interest:
