Bob McEntee, a former AF Pilot, discusses the importance of Hardening the Grid against an EMP. An Electromagnetic Pulse could disable all the power of a city, a State and a Nation, rendering all communications and every electrical item, (including automobiles), useless. Russia, Japan, China, Israel, and even Iran have already taken steps to harden their grid against an EMP. It is time for the US to do the same!
