It knocked out the microwave telephone link, too. I suspect that old microwave systems were pretty durable compared to modern cell phones/towers.Haha, Yes, if theres some 2 Mt Hydrogen bombs going off wer'e going have to deal with some flickering streetlights among other problems.
You are far more correct than you may think.I'd like to think that what appears to be stupid bungling provocations by our government are actually calculated because we have some hidden overwhelming advantage at this time that makes us invulnerable.
Search "directed energy weapons". Sat mounted lasers could sweep the sky of incoming missiles, likely hit and disable them right after launch. On the other hand, we have an do so much stupid bungling from the .gov elsewhere: fuel, food, baby formula, unfettered illegal immigration, supply chain issues, etc etc that stupid bungling provocations is probably the truth.
