Maybe the general public finds the EMP weapon comforting—on some level maybe I do—but the prepper in me sees a lot of red flags associated with the new high-tech weapons system. Although I have serious and deeply-held concerns regarding our massive federal government, I consider myself a patriot and respect our service members to the very deepest depths of my core.
My worries about the Air Force EMP weapon stem not from some government conspiracy mindset or fears that our dedicated Air Force members will put American infrastructure and businesses in their sights. My concerns evolved merely by taking a common sense look at the recently unveiled high-tech EMP weapons system.

I believe in American exceptionalism, but it would be pure arrogance to believe we will always be the only nation to boast such high-tech weaponry.
The Air Force EMP weapon is called CHAMPS, or Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project. Being one who focuses on power grid issues, I see the CHAMPS technology as yet another possible threat to the electrical grid.
