The article presents the author's views about the technical effects of an electromagnetic pulse blast. The author believe it is off the mark regarding the likelihood of such an attack being conducted on he U.S. A nuclear attack on the United States, even a supposedly benign high-altitude air burst attack, would likely result in massive retaliation against any nation or sponsor state for such an attack. This response would almost certainly be worldwide even if the attacker were an elusive terrorist group.
