The Department of Homeland Security in June issued a report on China’s ability to conduct an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack on the United States. The report concludes that China now has super-EMP weapons, is able to protect itself against an EMP attack and has developed protocols to conduct a first-strike attack.
The report says that China also has built a network of satellites, missiles and "super-EMP" weapons capable of disrupting the electric power grid, pipelines, critical banking infrastructure and communications.
