America’s Achilles Heel Exposed In Forstchen’s Novel – “I’m currently reading a book entitled ONE SECOND AFTER. The author is William R. Forstchen, but the foreward is written by former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich. The novel is about what would happen to America if a nuclear weapon were to detonate, say 300 miles up, above Kansas. How would this impact our power systems, our computer-based society, our food and medical supplies if an electromagnetic pulse were to hit us from such a device?” Read more.
