Korea's Neutron Bomb
« on: August 08, 2017, 06:08:49 PM »
Just thinking here, the stuff we don't want to think about.

North Korea manages to arc an ICBM into our airspace, and detonate a Neutron bomb - an EMP and it's all over for everything electronic in your house.

How many appliances wouldn't be effected?    My LP gas stove, with 100% mechanical controls...   would make it through OK.

Fridge, Freezers, Dishwasher, AC, Fans, LED lights, all contain copper windings or electronics - gonna go up in smoke.
Radios, speakers, computers, clocks, Stereo, air bed, well pump, washer, dryer, chain saw, circular saw, saws-all, drills, cordless drills, lathe - the list can go on and on... all up in smoke in a second.
Test equipment (all electronic), gone like a flash-bulb.


If North Korea goes to war with South Korea, the fastest way to level the battlefield, might be to EMP South Korea.

A neutron attack on the US is equivalent to a terrorist attack with a dirty bomb using mustard, sarin, or any number of outlawed agents.
For it to be effective it would have to be low in the atmosphere, considering NK is not all that advanced on weaponry or delivery systems, so it would be safe to assume they would prefer it be closer to the ground, which it would never even get close to the West Coast.
However, this would assure the destruction of NK and put an end to the commie state, meaning the South would absorb what's left.

I pretty much narrow it down to Kerosene lamps for light, LP gas stove for heat & cooking - the rest of my appliances would be finished.
Livestock would be OK, we'd still be eating well.

Since you live off-grid, Solar, how would you fare if an EMP took out all your electronics & everything with a copper winding?

A neutron bomb is much more than a simple EMF, most within affectation would die painfully within a few days of radiation poisoning.
If I had a heads up warning, quite well, but if it were a surprise attack, in the dark most likely, till I find all the failed components.
A day at most, though I'd lose TV, maybe radio, transportation might be iffy, but more than likely I wouldn't even be affected considering I live in a mountainous area far from a civilized metropolis, I'm just not a target.

Given the inaccuracy of third-world weaponry, Kim might target Los Angeles and actually hit Hackensack, New Jersey.
In that sense, you're still an unintentional target, Solar.   :lol: :lol:
