Electromagnetic pulse destruction of the country’s infrastructure
via missile attack from hostile sources or from geomagnetic storms

burst could disable the entire U.S. electrical grid. Dr. Peter

Human Rights Commission Goldstone Report concerning the recent Gaza
war has created far more controversy than settled issues. Dexter
