Maybe it would be good instead of predicting mayhem and violence people would do better to predict peace. It seems a tad more positive outlook. Place a flower down the barrel of a gun.
The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

I hate to tell you this, but most of our military equipment is already strongly shielded against EMP. And it has been so for decades.
You realize don't you, that most of our equipment was designed to fight the Soviets, are you not? And hardened and protected to operate in the aftermath of WWIII, a potentially nuclear war in Europe?
And what is one of the things you have to protect against in a nuclear war? Why, EMP, naturally.
And we have been doing research into this for decades. THISTLE, SUMMA, and lots of work into NNEMP (Non-Nuclear EMP). And as a weapon, this is all pretty much worthless.
And EMP is one of the easiest things to build defenses against. Are you aware that pretty much all technology prior to 1950 is EMP safe? That is why many parts of the military used vacuume tubes for decades. And why most modern military equipment essentially integrate Faraday Cages into the design of their electronics placements.
This is a nice Fantasyland piece, but the military thought of this decades ago and dismissed it.

Seems MF pretty much abandoned this thread, after beerftw's and Oozlefinch's posts
In future warfare this would force aircraft to have seriously heavy EMP shielding, slowing their speed, maneuverability, and bomb loads. I bet that would force aircraft into a WW1 status of being slow and cumbersome vehicles with not much armament.
ya ya that's right!!! nice job man!!!!!!
