Yet another potential danger has been added to the ever-growing and increasingly absurd
list of supposed terror threats – the “E-Bomb”.
An “E-bomb” is a weapon designed to be detonated in the upper atmosphere, and which emits a strong electromagnetic pulse. British Defence Secretary Phillip Hammond, speaking today at a conference in London attended by the US Assistant Defence Secretary, warned that terrorists or “rogue states” could use such a device to devastate Britain’s infrastructure.
The E-bomb, if detonated some 500 miles above the Earth, would apparently take out satellites, radar and the National Grid with ‘devastating’ results. Key military installations, transport systems, power and water supplies would also be hit.
