North Korea is still at it.....EMP weapons are used to damage to electronic equipment. At higher energy levels, an EMP event can cause more widespread damage including to aircraft structures and other objects. And they used the technology from China. I feel sorry for the South Koreans, who at least have a sane person running their government.
Thank You Carrie.

I have always felt badly for the South Koreans too.The North Koreans have been an constant, imposing, negative force on them, for so long---it must be very difficult for them. Thanks Carrie for this share!!!~

This is more worry some than their nuclear ambitions. We have built a society that relies on gadgets. Guess what -one good emp burst will find the target area without much of anything that runs, communicates and preserves life. Laugh at the Cubans and those old cars until the day when they have the only ones that do!

Thank you for the news; however, these weapons are probably no more of a threat than Russia's submarines which are little more than tin cans. Both countries are ruled by pathetic little dictators. I pity the people, and pray for their freedom from oppression.
