"The EMP Commission estimates that within 12 months of an EMP event, two-thirds of the U.S. population would likely perish from starvation, disease, and societal breakdown." Former CIA Director James Woolsey, as quoted in a South Korean news agency article

  1. Hey Doug,

    Only 2/3rds? You are a better optimist than I am. I figure 3/4 of the American populace would be. Most of the Americans have no clue what to do if the power fails. We no longer cann or preserve our own food, we rely on a delivery system that when it works is amazing...but let there be some disruptions..and clayco breaks out. We as a society have become soo dependent on others doing their jobs. It is a frightening thing to see actually. The self reliant American of legend has been bred out of us thanks to the nanny statist.

    Good article though.
