North Korea could be preparing an electromagnetic pulse strike on the US with two satellites already orbiting above America, experts have warned.

There are fears Pyongyang is secretly developing the ability to detonate a high-altitude nuclear weapon in space, setting off an EMP that would knock out electrical systems down below, with catastrophic results.

North Korea has two earth observation satellites launched in 2012 and 2016, each taking about 94 minutes to complete an orbit of the earth.

Dr Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security in America, warned that North Korea is positioning its satellites in a ‘nuclear missile age, cyberage version’ of battleship diplomacy ‘so that they can always have one of them (satellites) very close to being over the United States or over the United States’.

Pry, also chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission, told Breitbart’s Aaron Klein: ‘Then if a crisis comes up and if we decide to attack North Korea, Kim Jong Un can threaten our president and say, “Well, don’t do that because we are going to burn your whole country down.” Which is basically what he said.

‘I mean, he has made threats about turning the United States into ashes and he connected the satellite program to this in public statements to deter us from attacking.

‘If you wanted to win a New Korean war, one of the things you would certainly consider doing is taking out the United States homeland itself.’

Pry suggested Pyongyang may be taking its inspiration from a plan the USSR drew up to attack America with an EMP during the Cold War.
