Chinese Spy Balloon Called ‘Dry Run’ For EMP Attack

(Congress Report) – Intelligence officials have come out and stated that the kind of high-altitude balloons that China flew over our country this past weekend — that floated over a number of state military bases — are considered to be a key “delivery platform” for secret nuclear strikes on the electrical grid.

In other words, these kinds of balloons can be used for an electrical magnetic pulse assault that would render technology in its radius utterly useless, leaving our nation not only vulnerable to all sorts of attacks, but also causing the population to spiral into chaos. Yeah, it’s actually pretty terrifying.

“Spy balloons, used by Japan to drop bombs during World War II, are now far more sophisticated, can fly at up to 200,000 feet, evade detection, and can carry a small nuclear bomb that, if exploded in the atmosphere, would shut down the grid and wipe out electronics in a many-state-wide area,” Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner asserted.

“The threat of balloon-launched electromagnetic pulse attacks was warned about by a congressional EMP commission and inside the military several years ago,” Bedard continued. “In a 2015 report for the American Leadership & Policy Foundation, Air Force Maj. David Stuckenberg, one of the nation’s leading EMP experts, wrote extensively about the threat balloons carrying bombs pose to national security.”

“Using a balloon as a WMD/WME platform could provide adversaries with a pallet of altitudes and payload options with which to maximize offensive effects against the U.S.,” he remarked. “A high altitude balloon could be designed, created, and launched in a matter of months. There is nothing to prevent several hundred pounds of weapons material from being delivered to altitude.”

On Friday he spoke with Secrets, where he called the flying of the balloon over the United States a “provocative and aggressive” act by China and that it was most likely a “type of dry run meant to send a strategic message to the USA.”

“Now in the private sector, Stuckenberg, a national security expert and scientist who led the Defense Department’s EMP Task Force and chairman of the American Leadership & Policy Foundation, pointed to Japan’s World War II “Project FuGo” that targeted the U.S. with balloon bombs as an example of the threat. “Not since WWII has North America faced a threat of this nature. Project FuGo in Japan used balloons to float bombs on the trade-winds across the Pacific to the U.S. and Canada,” he said during the interview with Secrets.

Stuckenberg then cited research completed by Peter Pry, who was the head of a congressional commission on EMP and gave a report on the possibility of using a balloon to carry out this kind of attack.

In that citation, Stuckenberg noted, “Peter Pry, a former CIA analyst and member of the Congressional Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from EMP Attack, stated, ‘Imagine the consequences of a balloon EMP attack that damages and destroys electronic systems at the speed of light within an EMP field with a radius of hundreds of kilometers. The Eastern Grid generates 75% of U.S. electricity and supports most of the population.” Pry also declared, “Virtually any nuke detonated anywhere over the Eastern Grid will collapse the entire Eastern Grid, not just the area within the EMP field, because of cascading failures that will ripple outward.”

In the conclusion to his paper, Stuckenberg revealed, “In the case of EMP, the consequences of a failure to anticipate ALL delivery modes within the reach of an imaginative enemy could be immediate and widespread. As guardians of our nation’s future, planners must leave no stone unturned in the effort to deprive America’s enemies of low cost, low-tech, high-consequence military options.”

“China has said that its balloon flying over Montana is safe and not a threat. The Pentagon has rebuffed calls to shoot it down because it could be a safety issue to those below it,” the Washington Examiner divulged.

It’s terrifying to think of all the different military applications these balloons might have and how tolerant the current administration was with allowing the object to just sail across the country. Now is a good time to start praying for strong leadership.

  1. And our idiotic administration let it completely transverse the US gathering and transmitting its data before taking action to take it out. It was allowed to100% complete its mission before being shot down. Really makes you wonder which country Biden is working for.
