Warhammer News. S. Korea develops a Graphite Bomb to enhance preemptive strike options against N. Korea...

via Sputnik
 South Korea has developed a technology allowing Seoul to create the so-called blackout bomb that could paralyze power systems of North Korea in case of potential military conflict, local media reported Sunday.

According to the Yonhap news agency, the technology has been developed by the Agency for Defense Development within the framework of the country's Kill Chain preemptive strike system.

The media outlet added that the technology focused on targeting only electric power systems by spreading carbon graphite filaments over electric facilities that disrupt activities of the electric power system.
Story here. 

The US has had this since the first Gulf War.  Supposedly the Russians and Chinese have also developed versions of it.

Want to know what worries me more than a nuclear weapon?

The carnage that would result from this type weapon being used on a mega city.  Think about it.  A city of 10 million people suddenly lose power?  You would see death that would be as massive as a nuclear weapon...just long and lingering.

But what should scare everyone is that someone will eventually develop a man portable system.  I wouldn't be surprised if some Redneck with a Master's in applied sciences wasn't already playing in his garage.

These will get out and they will be used.  Either by security forces or criminals on a low level.

The more advanced we get the more we rely on tech.  The more we rely on tech the more vulnerable we become.

The seriously crazy thing?  We're building vulnerabilities into our very way of life and no one seems to care....and at the same time we're developing way to exploit those vulnerabilities.  It's almost like a person that is building a weapon to use on an enemy but doesn't realize that the same weapon will be used against him.  I know that doesn't make any sense but I hope you can flesh it out.

Side note.  Enough of my rambling.  How many of you knew that S. Korea had a preemptive strike strategy?  I sure didn't.
