Petition to President Trump: It's time to defend against a nuclear terrorist attack and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) events, man-made or of solar origin.
Please consider this scenario:
An enemy nation secretly equips Islamic Jihadists with a nuclear bomb. They smuggle it into the United states, drive it in a van, and detonate it in Washington, DC. They wipe out all three branches of the Federal Government and the Pentagon and kill more Americans than all of World War II.
All traces of the attackers are obliterated, no nation can be blamed, there is no fear of retribution.
Russia then launches multiple EMP attacks on the United States and Western Europe. Within a few months, 90% of the population has died. 500 million are dead. It is the end of the Western World.
Can you think of any reason why this cannot happen?
