Note from Guest Editor- "The following is a solid article on EMP threats etc, while I do not personally agree with the Pro-Israel stance this does not detract from the benefits of knowledge in this particular article."
In my last Caveman article, I wrote about the decision as to whether a preemptive action should be taken to prevent a rogue country from attacking another country. That decision revolves around the question of how to protect the liberty of all parties to a maximum extent, but at the same time, make sure that allowing liberty to the rogue country doesn’t end up in a disaster. Israel was used as an example where Islamists outright claim their intention to destroy the Jewish country. Given adequate intelligence as to true intentions, I concluded that a preemptive strike was justified from a liberty viewpoint. In this article, I explore another potential calamity, the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) caused by the high-altitude explosion of a nuclear weapon.
