Newt Gingrinch would use EMP weapons on Korean missiles
Here he is folks, the return of the Grinch on Faux News, to tell us all about his solutions for North Korea's missle launch, preventing the GOP from being the right wing of big government, and his recent conversion to the Catholic faith.
So...he casually tells us that if he were the potus that he would order the use of EMP weapons to take out the missle on the launch pad which is kinda scary, but not as scary as telling us that he now has Vatican connections and won't even need any tinfoil.
Yaknow, the guys head is big enough to be capable of intellectual thought, but what he is saying seems to be a bit irresponsible, even to an average senior citizen like me. From what I understand, an EMF weapon might be simpler to make than a nuclear weapon, and can probably be found in other places than just the US.
A WEAPON OF ELECTRONIC MASS DESTRUCTION
WRITTEN BY CARLO KOPP, DEFENSE ANALYST, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
High Power Electromagnetic Pulse generation techniques and High Power Microwave technology have matured to the point where practical E-bombs (Electromagnetic bombs) are becoming technically feasible, with new applications in both Strategic and Tactical Information Warfare. The development of conventional E-bomb devices allows their use in non-nuclear confrontations. This paper discusses aspects of the technology base, weapon delivery techniques and proposes a doctrinal foundation for the use of such devices in warhead and bomb applications.
