Iran can launch ballistic missiles from the deck of a ship (proven in the Caspian Sea). If topped with a nuclear warhead, this could enable an EMP attack from a freighter. @FredFleitz appreciates this threat and POTUS's strength on Iran. He should be President Trump's next Director of National Intelligence! www.foxnews.com/opinion/trump-stands-up-to-iran... See MoreSee Less
Leaders like @RepScottPerry and @SenRonJohnson who "get" the threat of EMP to the electric grid are rightly frustrated by a lack of intensity to meet this threat from federal departments and the utility industry.

Be civil, brief, and thank the volunteer for their time.
Without strong enforcement provisions all of these reports, directives & deadlines are meaningless. So what are they & specifically what enforcement provisions are in Trump’ EO?
ALL THE WORST ENEMIES ALREADY KNOW, TAKE OUT THE GRID AND THE COUNTRY WILL COLLAPSE....BECAUSE PEOPLE NOW DAYS THAT LIVE IN THE BIG CITIES WILL FALL INTO DISARRAY...PEOPLE OUT IN THE COUNTRY SIDE WILL ENDURE BUT SURVIVE. GOOD TEST IS SHUT DOWN A BIG CITY GRID FOR A MONTH...EVEN A WEEK AND WATCH IT COLLAPSE. DEFINITELY KNOW THE FARMER, AMISH AND SOME OTHERS WILL COPE.
This so could happen in America & only a few million are prepared or aware it could happen, most live in a bubble / space & never pay attention. False hope of relying on State/Federal Leadership is a HUGE MISTAKE. They can & will only do just so much, it's the citizen's responsibility too.
We fix it with our own citizens and have the bonus of a strong economy.
The problem with the Washington Post is all their fake news for the last 5 to 10 yrs. They have lost all credibility, even if this is a problem.
Do your own and make yourself proud.
Yes it's serious but I do not see how it is OUR problem.
Not paying to read it!
If we don’t protect it ... 🤬. WAKE UP PEOPLE
Washington post enemy of the United States
Yep read our grid is outdated &in danger !! If. The grid is hit you'll wonder where you will get news, groceries, hospitals will suffer, medicines, if it lasts a long time, the govt needs to make it a priority now !!!
Maybe a 'dry run' by a foreign entity who wants world domination for a future long term blackout for USA?? A nationwide blackout, even for a day, would cripple our country.
Thirty years ago today, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army fired into crowds of its own people—thousands of student-led protestors calling for a more democratic government. This marked a brutal end to the pro-democracy demonstrations that had been going on for weeks in Tiananmen Square.
While estimates suggest that several hundred to thousands of people died that day, an official death toll has never been released.
