NORTH KOREA is poised to deliver a devastating blow to the United States economy with a series of high-tech electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks, which would plunge the world into chaos, claims the BBC’s foreign affairs editor.

North Korea has long boasted about its ability to bring down the United State’s financial systems and transport networks with a series of EMP attacks.

Politicians in the US are said to be alarmed by the growing threat of a high-altitude nuclear blast and the resulting electromagnetic pulse.

An EMP attack would fry the circuitry of mobile phones and wipe out online banking, food resources and the USA’s financial systems, resulting in a global financial crash, claimed Simpson.

The blast of electromagnetic energy also has the ability to take down aeroplanes in flight and cause trains to stop in their tracks.

Speaking to BBC’s Radio 5 Live, Simpson said: “One of the things that the North Koreans have been boasting about an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), which means firing a nuclear weapon up into the atmosphere and devastating the electrical grid of a country and all of its infrastructure.

“If something like that were to happen, I don’t think it is at all likely, but when North Korea is boasting about it, then, of course, the whole world would suffer if there was a major breakdown of the United States, China or somewhere else – that would be absolutely devastating to the world economy.

“There are serious dangers to the world economy, and I think this is why the Chinese are showing such signs of nervousness at the moment because they think that the world economy could be devastated if anything goes wrong at all.”

North Korea has previously claimed it had two satellites in an “ideal altitude” to launch such an attack against the USA.
