Retired Green Beret Warns: "There Could Be A Nuclear Strike Against The US Coming Soon"

For approximately the past five years, the Mainstream Media (MSM) and the Obama-administration supported research “think-tanks” for monitoring the North Korean situation have had a field day.  They consistently (along with the brain-dead public’s crowds of naysayers) and intentionally understated the capabilities of North Korea.  The experts in the field (such as Dr. Peter V. Pry, Admiral Bill Gortney, General Curtis Scapparotti) have not been able to be denied; however, they have been marginalized and made to seem to be “in conflict” with the prevailing, majority “view.”  The “tyranny of the majority,” in this case, was needed to accomplish the objectives of the Obama administration: appear to be “strong” on sanctions, and “aloof” with diplomacy, i.e., Barack Hussein Obama II’s not “lowering” himself to deal with North Korea diplomatically.

The true objective of Obama regarding North Korea was to pursue a laissez-faire policy and allow North Korea to progress, becoming a viable threat, as it is today.

All of this was deliberately planned by Obama and his handlers.  As far back as April 7, 2015, Admiral Bill Gortney (the former commander of North American Aerospace Defense, a.k.a. NORAD) gave a press conference in which he warned of North Korea’s capabilities with an ICBM, an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile…warned that North Korea could strike the United States with a nuclear warhead on an ICBM…he stated this in 2015.  Six months prior, in October of 2014 Admiral Gortney stated that North Korea had nuclear weapons, had miniaturization capabilities, and could place them on missiles that could reach the continental United States.

Fast-forward to this year.  There was a joint article that was penned by Dr. Peter V. Pry, America’s foremost expert on EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) threats posed to the United States by foreign nations and the head of every committee to brief Congress on those issues.  A former analyst with the Central Intelligence Agency, Dr. Pry is currently the Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security.  The article was co-authored by R. James Woolsey, former Director of the Central Intelligence AgencyHere are excerpts from that article, released on March 29, 2017 by The Hill:

“The mainstream media, and some officials who should know better, continue to allege North Korea does not yet have capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons.  False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not “demonstrated” that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a U.S. city.


Yet any nation that has built nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, as North Korea has done, can easily overcome the relatively much simpler technological challenge of warhead miniaturization and reentry vehicle design.


The notion that North Korea is testing A-Bombs and H-Bomb components, but does not yet have the sophistication to miniaturize warheads and make reentry vehicles for missile delivery is absurd.


…North Korea should be regarded as capable of delivering by satellite a small nuclear warhead, specially designed to make a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack against the United States.


According to the Congressional EMP Commission, a single warhead delivered by North Korean satellite could blackout the national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures for over a year – killing 9 of 10 Americans by starvation and societal collapse.  Two North Korean satellites, the KMS-3 and KMS-4, presently orbit over the U.S. on trajectories consistent with surprise EMP attack.


Why do the press and public officials ignore or under-report these facts?  Perhaps no administration wants to acknowledge that North Korea is an existential threat on their watch.  Whatever the motives for obfuscating the North Korean nuclear threat, the need to protect the American people is immediate and urgent…”

There you have the main points to substantiate what was written earlier: a deliberate obfuscation of the facts by the Obama administration coupled with the complicit MSM to allow North Korea the time to develop the capabilities to strike the continental United States.  Let’s also try not to forget that a “standard” ICBM is not the only focus of North Korea: the SLBM (Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile) is a threat.  Recall that CNN put this report out on April 24, 2016:

“After previous launch attempts by Pyongyang failed, this one seems to have gone much better, one U.S. official noted.  “North Korea’s sub launch capability has gone from a joke to something very serious,” this official said. “The U.S. is watching this very closely.”  Asked whether the test was successful, another U.S. official told CNN, “essentially yes.”

(CNN, from Don Melvin, Jim Sciutto, and Wil Ripley)

For years, now, the paid think-tank naysayers have decried the capabilities of North Korea and downplayed their programs of missile and nuclear warhead developments.  on September 7, 2016, two days prior to the North Korean nuclear test of September 9th, a DoS (Denial of Service) attack crashed the website of the Project on Crowdsourced Satellite Imagery based in California.  Working on this “project” are two analysts, Melissa Hanrahan, and Jeffrey Lewis.  Both have consistently and repeatedly denied North Korea’s nuclear capabilities and as late as this year, both have stated that North Korea “was years away from perfecting an ICBM.”  Not only have they been proven wrong, but Lewis “backpedaled” and declared that this latest launch from last week was indeed a North Korean-launched ICBM.              

Fast-forward to today: The United States just flew a live-fire “exercise” on the border of North Korea, and the United States is now screwing with North Korea’s money.

Two American B-1 B bombers dropped live bombs on simulated missile battery targets while accompanied by South Korean fighter aircraft targeting simulated underground bunkers.  North Korea responded in their state-run media with such:

“The US, with its dangerous military provocation, is pushing the risk of a nuclear war on the peninsula to a tipping point.”

They labeled the maneuver as “…a dangerous military gambit of warmongers who are trying to ignite the fuse of a nuclear war on the peninsula,” and went on to add this, of great importance for you to focus upon, so much so that I’ve underlined the important part:

“A small misjudgment or error can immediately lead to the beginning of a nuclear war, which will inevitably lead to another world war.”

Do you realize the silent significance of the underlined portion?  The MSM has tried to paint a picture of North Korea as a “rogue” state with an insane leader.  In truth, there are other nations, such as China and Russia that conduct commerce with North Korea as well as having pledged military alliances.

Does anyone really think that China and Russia will sit this one out, and that it will all be just an EMP by North Korea followed by a couple of nukes dropped by the U.S.?

In the meantime, it has just been revealed by Jonathan Stempel of Reuters that the U.S. is going after North Korea’s money.  Here is an excerpt of that article:

“U.S. authorities have tried to seize millions of dollars associated with several companies that deal with North Korea, including the country’s military, from eight large international banks, according to court filings made public on Thursday.  The effort was revealed two days after North Korea tested a long-range missile capable of reaching Alaska, ratcheting up tensions with the United States and adding to worries about North Korea leader Kim Jong Un’s nuclear weapons plans.  Thursday’s filings show that Chief Judge Beryl Howell of the federal court in Washington, D.C. on May 22 granted U.S. prosecutors’ applications for “damming” seizure warrants against Bank of America Corp, Bank of New York Mellon Corp, Citigroup Inc, Deutsche Bank AG, HSBC Holdings Plc, JPMorgan Chase & Co, Standard Chartered Plc and Wells Fargo & Co.  Prosecutors believe the banks have processed more than $700 million of “prohibited” transactions on behalf of entities tied to North Korea since 2009, including the period after Donald Trump was elected U.S. president, the filings show.”

With measures such as military exercises and money seizures, it can be clearly seen that Un and North Korea are being maneuvered into a situation where the only recourses are capitulation to the U.S./IMF hegemony (which we know will not occur) or to conduct a strike against the United States.  North Korea has that capability right now…to launch a nuclear strike against the continental United States.

The next world war will be initiated by an EMP, and North Korea will either launch it or take the blame for it by a country that did launch it…to include the United States.

Do not be in denial of the threat: be the “10th Man,” as in the movie “World War Z.”  Think outside of the confines that society places upon your intellect.  It is not “fear porn” to continuously “sound off” about what is going on around us, especially when people are either unaware of it or denying that it can happen.  The MSM is either silent on the subject, or it skews the information.  There are still those who are unaware of the current threats to the U.S. outlined in this article.  There are still many people who will be reading this information for the first time: those who may have heard bits and pieces of it and are not aware of what is going on or the depth and significance of it.

It is primarily for them that I write this piece, and secondly to those who may wish to review some of the previously-released information and reflect upon it…for them to make the right decisions regarding preparations for themselves and their families.

Bottom line: everyone is pretty much on their own…everyone and their families.  The “sink or swim” tenet does apply.  It is stupid to discount information that may help you when the time comes (or before it does) just because of “going along with the crowd,” or skepticism.  Many people would willingly burn to a crisp and stay in a target area just to emphasize their denial and disagreement with someone else’s view.  Throughout history, these people follow a stubborn refusal to admit there is always more than what appears on the surface. To act upon such information and decisively (at the critical point) is paramount.

I implore everyone to study carefully the buildup by the parties involved and weigh the reasons (who, what, when, where, how, and…most importantly, why) there could be a strike against the U.S. coming soon.  Many people believe that it is, and I am one of them.  I’d rather be wrong a thousand times than be “right” once on it, but the situation changes day to day.  It is better to be prepared for it.  If it comes, I’m not going to take any satisfaction at those who constantly deride or detract.  Instead I’m going to thank God that I’m safe and pray that others took steps to keep themselves and their families safe, too, and make it through the times to come.  Perhaps the whole country will come crashing down, but maybe…just maybe, we can survive and make it better than it was before.

I close with the words of Dr. Pry:

North Korea is a mortal nuclear threat to the United States – right now.  North Korea has already successfully tested and developed nuclear weapons.  It has also already miniaturized nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery and has armed missiles with nuclear warheads.


Any nuclear weapon detonated above an altitude of 30 kilometers will generate an electromagnetic pulse that will destroy electronics and could collapse the electric power grid and other critical infrastructures – communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water – that sustain modern civilization and the lives of 300 million Americans.  All could be destroyed by a single nuclear weapon making an EMP attack.


A Super-EMP attack on the United States would cause much more and much deeper damage than a primitive nuclear weapon…North Korean nuclear tests look suspiciously like a Super-EMP weapon. A Super-EMP warhead would have a low yield, like the North Korean device, because it is not designed to create a big explosion, but to convert its energy into gamma rays, that generate the EMP effect.


Reportedly South Korean military intelligence concluded, independent of the EMP Commission, that Russian scientists are in North Korea helping develop a Super-EMP warhead. In 2012, a military commentator for the People’s Republic of China stated that North Korea has Super-EMP nuclear warheads.  A Super-EMP warhead would not weigh much, and could probably be delivered by North Korea’s ICBM.  The missile does not have to be accurate, as the EMP field is so large that detonating anywhere over the United States would have catastrophic consequences.


So, as of Dec. 12, North Korea’s successful orbit of a satellite demonstrates its ability to make an EMP attack against the United States – right now.”

Suggest you do a little research on the topic....high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP)..Bill Radasky is a recognized expert in this field.  A short abstract can be found at

The months to years to restore...generally means full restoration of the power grid.

Forget the EMF, you should be worried about the EBF.

The EBF Extremely Bright Flash effect was observed during atmospheric nuclear testing.

It is estimated that if a spooky evil power like NK (or the US trying to blame an evil spooky power) set of a nuke at 500 miles over the center of the USA, Americans will all look up at the flash and be blinded. The blinding will last over a year. 90% of the population will die because they will starve because they are blind and cannot see any food.

Call and tell the US government you have no debt.  They consider all of us having a responsibility for a portion of the national debt.

Deplorables like you won't get it, you never do.  I've been reading deplorable comments on Zero Head for years, and you guys are ALWAYS wrong!  Its uncanny.  You were saying house prices would collapse for the past 5 years, while my house prices all went up about 40%, I made more money than I ever made in my life, doing the opposite of what deplorables recommend.  You guys voted for Trump, and so far that has been a disaster.  

You guys wouldn't see a garbage truck running over you until the last tire rolled off your face.  Thats just the way you are, always wrong.

So yes, the threat from North Korea is very very real, and very very dangerous, and the more you guys down play it, the scarier that makes it.

The only problem with the EMP is it will evenutally kill everyone on earth.  When most of the 99 U.S. nuclear power plants go Fukushima because their cooling systems fail due to the EMP, Kim and pretty much everybody else on earth will die. 

Posa's picture

Not exactly. The cooling systems have passive shutdown systems. The real damage will be the spent fuel rods that are in holding pools on the reactor site . When those pumped cooling systems stop running, the pools will boil off and the rods will explode pretty fiercely, spewing lots of radioactive materials all over the place...

Show me some proof satellites actually are in orbit and left earth first. Oh that's right, u can't

You're an idiot. Satelite trajectory is open/public info ( Orbitron ) and when my son was growing up we'd track and spot em over the Great Lakes with a refractive telescope on our deck. Could see the detail down to their solar panels. Are you some kind of modern day Luddite?

I sound like a prick, but 3 to 4 years plus of this were gonna die shit gets old.  Personally if I went to war with Paraguay, they will fold.  Is the broad strokes ideas meaningfull...yes

For beginners, I've bought and lost small fortunes, probably like a few on here.  Some of us have been doing this for years, I pulled of the April 25 silver peak, I pulled this off only by patterns through old tricks of just reading.

Hit 50, I bought for 20, I sold before the weekend it crashed that weekend.  Why isn't these authors saying that, from a mountaintop


Hey yeah I did it, it's me, pull it off son, I'm all ears, I did it with the two hand and a brain, now why can't you do that.


I'll still just keep doing me

Back in my day some of the guys who had been normal, came back from Vietnam all fucked up, like the guy who wrote this.

Don't be hard on him, he was probably normal before whatever country it was he invaded.

There is a way out of this: Stop threatening Regime Change in NKor along with threats... the NKors did abide by past agreements, but the US ususally double-crossed them. Jar head Green Berets don't understand the idea of negotiation...

Bullshit. If a nuclear missile is launched, it will be by the US government and blamed on Korea. This is all a set-up. Korea gains nothing by attacking anyone.

Centerist's picture

The US has nothing to gain from launching a nuclear attack, either.  No one does.  Claims that the US will initiate one are just projections of the accusers' own sick and twisted desires to see it happen because they hate their own miserable lives so much and want others to share their misery.  It's very self-absorbed thinking.

historian40's picture

The difference is, the US is ran by a globalist cabal that doesn't base their decisions on what's good for the US.

Grandad Grumps's picture

What does the US government have to gain from launching war after war based on false flag events?

The US government has been shown complicit in sacrificing its own people time and again. Apparently being in war is more important to the US government than anything. Explain that!

The US and the world is a wonderful place. Only the management sucks. The US government does not represent the American people. It works for someone else.

Centerist's picture

A nuclear strike would result in catastrophic consequences.  Playing games with that is beyond any level of reason.  Yes, we have a lot of turds calling some shots, but the idea that any of them would go as far is launching a nuclear strike is beyond ludicrous.

In digesting all the things that are going to kill us these days, one must try to maintain some balance.  Asking "why" is a big help.

The existential threat to America resides in DC and NYC.....primarily.  Actually,  the existential threat to the world is located there.  That is the reason "why" there are threats to the US from outside the US.  There are people in this world who realuze that if the threat of DC is not neutralized,  then they could he it's next victim.

Case in point, Vladimir Putin. DC is slowly and methodically surrounding Russia. To the point that Russia will be cornered and have few options when the shooting war starts.  China is hooked on the NY bankster fiat debt based heroin. ......for now. ....and are being distracted.

The point mentioned in thus article that Russia is helping NK in their efforts makes perfect sense.....and gives us a clear now to "why",  If Putin does not figure out how to slow down DC, Russia will be lost.  Putin would love to cripple DC and at the same time keep things contained so they don't lead to WW3.  If an EMP or outright nuke strike from NK could get that done, Russia would help it along.

Getting to the evil in DC without the American sheeple rising to arms based on false propaganda is the hat trick that will be hard to accomplish.  The American people aren't interested in war and empire the way DC is, but DC will tell the American sheeple that the bad guys are out to take their freedom......and away we go.

Not saying the fight could be contained in Korea,  but it is a strategy that makes sense. You can bet your bottom dollar, Putin is in a constant mode of trying to figure out how to get DC neutralized without starring WW3.  I don't believe he cares about ruling the world, I think he want to be left alone and see his country thrive.  DC is THE threat to those goals.

Iran will do it. Muslims have been blaming all the worlds problems on Jews 1400 years now.
When the Muslims sink USA with nuclear weapons they will blame it on the Jews as they have done for 1400 years.
Morons on this site also believe this Islamic bedtime story where Jews rule the world and are to blame.
You losers don't realise that this story is 1400 years old, was invented by paedophile Muhammad, has been passed as a Muslim bedtime story ever since, and now dump Americans on this site believe this ancient shit. Its exactly why you will now suffer for your ignorance.

Jewish Khadija wrote the Koran,the 40-year-old JEWISH YEMENI FIRST WIFE OF TOYBOY MOHAMMED, who based it entirely on the Jewish Talmud/Torah, though Mohammed never knew it, because HE WAS ILLITERATE. Islam is just a Branch of Judaism.

smacker's picture

"Islam is just a Branch of Judaism."

Yes, there are certainly historical ties between these two cults. Calling Islam a (subsidiary) branch of Judaism is a good way of describing it.

((Islam is the untermenschen of Judaism)) is another description.

Rough-Trader's picture

Nope. I've read it. Koran is completely different to Judaism or the bible. You so fucking stupid that nukes are coming your way

bshirley1968's picture

That you included the Bible in you response reveals who you are.

If you had of said the Talmud,  that would have been different.  Muslims are the half brothers of jews and Islam and Talmidic Judaism are essential the same.  Kill or enslave all who disagree, raping children is okay, lying and stealing from "unbelievers" is okay, ect.

When you threw in the Bible, you were either 1. Purposely misdirection from the evil Talmud....that makes you evil, 2 Don't know shit about the Bible......makes you stupid.
