Who needs an EMP when we have a president who will achieve the same goal.
Sounds real uplifting ... read it before bed and never sleep again.
Sounds interesting. Thanks for the scoop. I may pick up a copy.
I don’t want to think about this kind of stuff. If things go badly i’ll go out in a blaze of glory defending my stuff. I’ll be like the guy riding the A-bomb out out the bomb bay (can’t remember his name)
In the book the president dies because Air Force One has not been hardened against EMP and crashes.
I read it shortly after it was published. It is a sobering and IMHO probably quite accurate prediction of what this country would be like in a post-EMP situation.
I also believe that more than likely this is exactly what Ahmadinejad has in mind for us.

That was the movie. Slim Pickens was the actor.
Sounds like a fairy tale. In reality, I see AF1 delivering the EMP.
I read the entire book and I recommend it highly for you guys to so!
It provided much sobering thought how a simple weapon can wreck such civilization as we know it!
And that weapon exists today!
Think about it!
No this was a cowboy...Studs terkel, no that’s not it. damn it’s on the tip of my tongue...
Major “King” Kong was the character.
Thanks!! I didn’t realize that was the movie.
Patriots is another post apocalyptic book that illustrates survival methods.
On my shelf already. Just haven’t gotten to read it yet.
That was Slim Pickins as Major T.J. “King” Kong going down with him bomb.
For 45 extra bonus points, What was the target of his bomb?
The actor's name was Slim Pickens. One of my favorite character actors from the sixties.
Too bad life isn't quite like that. It is Hobbesian. Nasty, short, and brutish. But these fools still believe the ‘police’ of today believe in service when they taser granny, or blow a pastor away in the foolishly named ‘drug war’.
They will be the first to be killed by that Hobbesian world, because they are the weak fools that think todays society is geared to protect them from the ‘bad guys’.
Fools. But they still think themselves superior. Too funny. They will die wondering what the f**k happened.
