I want to know where CF goes to be worried about EMP pulses !
If I wanted to destabilise "the infidels", cripple or even invade a country by force without making it uninhabitable or triggering a nuclear war, One of the first things I would consider is disabling technology with an EMP.
Sure, tanks and fighter jets might be shielded, but telecommunications, stock exchanges, vehicle ECUs would all vanish instantly, leaving utter chaos. No food in the shops, no internet, probably no working radio or television?
Probably wouldn't have to do anything else, the whole country would revert to cannibalism within days (if this fuel panic is anything to go by).
On the other hand, I suspect that generating an EMP big enough to hit a whole city without actually nuking it could be rather tricky?
Ok let's go back to worrying about dirty bombs and nuclear war
