Report: Iran And North Korea Are “Collaborating In An Exchange Of Materials And Technicians To Mutually Develop Nuclear Weapons Capabilities”

    “In the United States, the federal civil defense program was authorized by statute and ran from 1951 to 1994.  Originally authorized by Public Law 920 of the 81st Congress, it was repealed by Public Law 93-337 in 1994.”

    Wikipedia, “Civil Defense”

    The Public Law.  For the Public Good.  For your own good, for whatever good it will do.  Under Clinton in 1994, Civil Defense was repealed.  The Cold War has “ended,” as of 1992 with the “collapse” of the Soviet Union, and it was time to rid the U.S. of all of those “pesky” fallout shelter signs.  There was NAFTA and the beginnings of true globalism with the creation of the EU.  What need was there for Civil Defense?

    Twenty-three years after the treasonous disbanding of Civil Defense and official signs for locations of Fallout Shelters, there is a need for both once more.  North Korea has been engaging in exchange with Iran for decades: collaborating in an exchange of materials and technicians to mutually develop one another’s nuclear weapons capabilities.

    All News Pipeline’s Stefan Stanford and Susan Duclos have been presenting some excellent and informative articles on the North Korean EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) capabilities.  Many of these articles have been authored by Dr. Peter V. Pry, the foremost expert on the EMP threat facing the United States.  All News Pipeline’s article of September 19, 2017 is entitled Following Threats To Drop The ‘Father Of All Bombs’ While Claiming They’ve Infiltrated The US Military, Iran Prepares To Deploy 3 New Satellites Into Orbit – Is Iran Preparing To Launch An EMP Attack Upon America?

    This piece is no exception to the quality information released thus far by All News Pipeline.  Please read it!  This article is written by none other than Dr. William R. Graham, Chairman of the Congressional EMP Commission and former Science Advisor to President Reagan.  Dr. Graham also was directly involved in the 1962 “STARFISH PRIME” high-altitude nuclear test that began the U.S.’s study into the effects of an EMP.

    North Korea has not backpedaled on its threats to nuke the United States and to unleash an EMP weapon if provoked by the U.S.  As Dr. Graham’s article points out, this is not only feasible, but soon they will not be alone: Iran plans to launch 3 satellites that can easily be fitted with a miniaturized EMP device.  Dr. Graham also corroborates Dr. Pry’s assertions that the 2 North Korean satellites currently in orbit may contain an EMP weapon.

    As a matter of fact, Dr. Pry released an article to All News Pipeline on September 18, 2017, entitled, North Korean Public Statement Confirms ‘Worst Case Scenario’ Fears After Many Years of Denial By ‘US Elite’ – Have We Reached Our ‘Rhineland Moment’?  This piece gives a list of all the things accomplished by North Korea that were denied by the U.S. Media, the politicians, and the skeptical naysayers of the public within the past 6 months.  Most of these denied items were confirmed in many cases by none other than the “experts” who originally denied them and then changed their minds in the face of evidence that could not be refuted.

    Iran just increased its military budget, has billions of investment dollars in its nuclear plant facilities and a joint railway project with Russia and several Asian nations, and is one of the last remaining nations not tied to the world bank and the IMF.  Iran has held a doctrine for many years of pursuing options with EMP’s launched on missiles hidden within cargo containers on board ships.  These options have been tested by the Iranians in several scenarios over the past 5 years.  Now there is a growing Iranian naval presence in the Western Hemisphere in Cuba and Venezuela, with plans of sending more of a fleet into the Atlantic.

    Dr. Graham and Dr. Pry are both revealing scenarios with both North Korea and Iran that are developing further each day.  I strongly encourage you to read these articles.  It is important to become aware and educated on a threat that is not going to disappear anytime soon.  The expertise of the authors is only matched by their candor and clearly-understandable explanations of the situation.

    The next world war will be initiated by an EMP attack against the U.S.

      1. JJ
        You are now reporting this.
        Some of us here have know this for years. That is why the Deal with Iran was so much B.S. N.K. has been developing their Nukes and Iran’s Nukes at the same time. Iran has had people in place in N.K. for years helping with Missiles and Nukes. When N.K. has a missile that will hit the US so will Iran.

        When that happens LOOK OUT. Israel won’t wait they will hit Iran hard and often, just like what we should be doing to N.K.

        Just think if Hitler would have waited to start WW2 until 1942 or 43 he would have had Jet planes, Missiles that could hit anywhere, and very close to having Nukes. We are waiting for N.K. and Iran to have them and to use them. The waiting is OVER!!!!


        • Exactly Sarge!!! Even when I saw the headline, my first thought was “No Sh*t Sherlock!!”. And let’s not forget the Iranian-Ukraine connection; nor, the Pakistani one(s). Only thing I might be a bit surprised @ would be if Venezuela and/or some other totalitarian repressive regime/dictatorship was named as well. ….. Then again, naw…

        • And let us not forget an underlying principal…

          Iranian eschatology.

          Much chaos must be unleashed upon the world in order for the 12th Imam to come and put into place the world wide caliphate.

          Much chaos just might be the use of the nuclear menace.

          • grandee, let us also not forget the role the treasonous “leaders” of the US have played.

            “The conflicts in Ukraine, Venezuela, and Syria have one thing in common: the U.S. government is in favor of the groups who aspire to topple — or who have toppled — the government in power. McCain rhymes with insane. The similarities don’t end there.”

            John McCain is serving the interests of a fascist regime in Ukraine

        • yep, but back then we wanted to win. now we just want X-box and welfare.

        • remember hitlery was their middle man

        • Sarge, the collaboration between the two nations goes back to the 90s. Nothing new here. JJ must’ve been sleeping under a rock.

        • I have been telling this community about the link between these countries for years. Yes, its in the archives. 🙁

          • the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

        • At least JJ is reporting on this. The “main stream media” won’t touch this.

          N. Korea’s nuclear program is directly funded by Iran, and they expect payback in the form of technology and likely actual production hydrogen bombs. Saudi Arabia financed Pakistans nuclear program and in return were given between 6 and 9 nuclear weapons. Yes, the nutty Saudis are confirmed to have atomic weapons.

          Obama gave 400 million in cash to Iran, likely some or all of that money was sent direct to N. Korea to fund nuclear bombs and missiles. So yes, you guessed it, US tax dollars were used to arm N. Korea and Iran with nuclear weapons. Obama’s plans for a world on total chaos are come to fruition.

          • And if you were to dig more deeply Id be willing to bet you’d find that die hard Muslims in Pakistan are also in on it.

        • Sgt-

          You forgot that Clinton sent nuke technology to NK in the nineties. Then Obama sent vast quantities of cash and other goodies to them sub rosa not so long ago.

          Our Dear Leaders have had ample opportunity to harden our grid (and allow continued building power plants so energy could be totally decentralized). Instead, they have spent the money on themselves in DUMBs for their criminal COG. We are the ones they wish to eliminate and they want plausible deniability to get it done. If the people knew, they would slaughter them in their beds.

          So for my money, if the announced enemies of the USA would take out the Shadow Government and let us get back to being a Constitutional Republic, that would be fine with me.

      2. fake news

      3. This is a pointless Propaganda article. Iran has never attacked another country is several Hundred years and N Korea can be dealt with by China and Japan. The US and NEO-Cons like JJ the Author here need to STFU and mind their own business.

        “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”

        • JJ you’re timing is impeccable. Just days after Trump made it crystal clear what’s going to happen to Rocketman, you are now saying we still need to worry because NK has an accomplice. Unreal. Fraud. Liar. Fake. You are

          • I have been telling this community for years that the two were in cahoots. They have a secret agreement that if one of them is attacked the other will join in war against the USA.

            Only its not so secret if I have been telling you. 🙂

            • Yes DK I know they’ve been in cahoots, but this fool is just trying to save face cause the NK emp fear porn ain’t gonna happen and he’s trying to keep his bs alive. He is a liar and a fraud and a fake wannabe operator.

              • The threat from NK is real. It is an existential threat to the United States and our allies with whom we have treaties to protect under the ‘nuclear umbrella”. That threat becomes more difficult to extinguish with each passing day.

                The sooner that threat is eliminated, the better for all people of the world. The “EMP Threat” is very real. NK has satellites that could carry a large nuclear weapon and explode it over the USA. Never underestimate an adversary; especially if that adversary is a madman with nuclear weapons.

                If Japan and SK were not protected by Treaty they would have already developed nuclear weapons. Both SK and Japan can go nuclear over a long weekend. Japan has enough nuclear material for at least 80 nukes.

                A massive first strike by the United States is the best of a few bad options. The elimination of the NK threat now could set back the start of WW III for decades. 🙁

        • Pointless article??? LMAO……

      4. Report: The US And Israehell Are “Collaborating In An Exchange Of Materials And Technicians To Mutually Develop Nuclear Weapons Capabilities” To destroy the entire Planet.

        • Ho Hum, CSS has no life. Another useless post from the basement.

        • Iranian Muslim scum and North Korean commie scum. What a combination. [SARCASM]

      5. The Globalists have no trouble getting the same people to believe the propaganda over and over again. If you don’t have nukes, you get attacked by the Globalists.

      6. NK has been testing Iranian designed bombs and their missile program is being boosted into high capability with Iranian help.

        • You’re an idiot.

          If anything, it has been charged that NORTH KOREA has been helping IRAN. You’ve got it exactly backwards.

          Not to mention that it was established that Iran got some NK nuclear documents by mistake with other documents Iran had requested from NK. All of which was related to Iran’s nuclear ENERGY program and not the non-existent nuclear WEAPONS program.

          • If you feel the need to begin a reply with an ad hominem “You’re an idiot.” it means you neither have confidence in what you are saying or can make an effectual argument to support it because reality demonstrates otherwise.

      7. If Iran is such a big threat how come their navy is a bunch of speedboats with machine guns?

        • They are spending their money on underground missile factories and centrifuges. 🙂

      8. It seems we shouldn’t be worried about too much, really. Soon darkness will cover the whole earth. Chaos. Our goose is cooked.

        • I want the goose well done. Humans are waaaayyy to selfish and stupid to be here anyway. All they have done is destroy and consume and overpopulate. How many people actually take the time to think about what it takes to make all the shit they buy and where their trash goes and sewage etc.? Where does all the fresh water come from and meat and the plethora of other shit they take for granted? All they do is try and enslave eachother and conquor others and aquire power and consume as much as fuckin possible! What a shitty idea it was for earth to house these fuck ups….

      9. Keep your eyes on the bouncing red ball. The US is considering an embargo on Venezuela.
        Punishment for ditching the petro dollar. So predictable. Our goose is cooked. Pretty soon
        none of these countries will use our worthless fiat ( backed only by our military ). When all
        those dollars come home, good luck trying to buy anything. Thank you Federal Reserve.
        They will try to start WW3 to avert any blame for all the danger they have done to our
        economy for decades. The dumbasses will watch Fox News and say, ” Dangit! We gotta do
        something about that Venezuelan dictator! He’s starving his own people “. The Fed has
        turned our kids in the military into mercenaries for hire. Let’s not sugarcoat it. It is what it is. Our corporate media is 100% CIA-spin. Pity the fools that believe all the baloney. One
        way or another, the central banks/ CIA/ Mossad are going to get their war(s) and make it
        look like the other side is the real villain. Wake up motherfuckers ( not y’all )….. talking
        about the rank and file sheeple. Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Ingraham and the rest of the
        shills will tow the party line and try to rally the uninformed, brainwashed masses that our
        generation must do something to stop the scourge. So sad and predictable.

      10. To date no state with nuclear weapons has been invaded. I think its intent is insurance.

        • To date, only one country has ever used nuclear weapons.

        • Insurance is one way to look at it. Another is the taking of hostages (by threatening to nuke a country by nuclear tipped missile or satellite) and demanding ransom or political benefit. North Korea and Iran brazenly boast of destroying other nations. Every child in those nations is currently indoctrinated in hatred. If Iran and NK have the ability to destroy nation(s) with nuclear weapons, they will attempt to take some part of the world (or all of it) hostage. Then you and I (or the ne’er-do-wells currently in public office) will have to deal with their threats and demands, or else the hostage nation(s) gets nuked. Allowing it to continue only guarantees not only that it will get worse, but sensing weakness, other malcontent nations will try it.

          • “North Korea and Iran brazenly boast of destroying other nations.”

            To be completely fair … the United States does the same thing … only difference is … the USA follow throughs with their belligerence behavior.

            Talk is talk and nothing more … but actions is what conscientious people should be paying attention too.

            “Who are actually the bad people here?”
            “Who is provoking who?”
            “Who has military personal upon other nations borders?”

          • Iran has NEVER threatened Israel with a unilateral first strike of ANY kind, let lone with nukes that they have explicitly renounced every developing.

            The oft-quoted Ahmadinjad quote has long been debunked as a mis-translation.

            Israel, on the other hand, has repeatedly threatened to destroy Iran. The US has threatened to destroy Iran.

            The US has also threatened to destroy North Korea repeatedly. North Korea’s threats are well known for the last sixty years to be bombast and nothing more.

      11. Trump and his mentor sidekick Nutty yahoo calling Iran the biggest terrorists in the world is laughable beyond a madman on crack potential. Pure throw it out there and make it stick BS. Private bankers shit their pants over non controlled Iran and North Korea. The American people eat it up as absolute proof like taking candy from a baby, wah. If it is said enough times believe it less.

      12. So what? Where is it written that the USA and a few other nations get to decide who can or cannott have whatever military technology they deem necessary to protect their country from warmongering attacks by bully nations. That like trying to tell me that I cannot have certain types of guns ect. To protect my very own property and person. I say hooray for them. Pretty soon hopefully they will have a good enough arsenal to be a deterrent to the UN & NWO. The agressive actions of the USA trying to police the world is enough justification for anyone who wishes to develop whatever type defence’s they want and need.

        • Just because other nations have an inherent right to develop nuclear weapons, it doesn’t mean that the US has to allow them to do so.

          Its in our own best interests AND survival as a nation to eliminate the competition. Does any one of you want to live under Sharia Law; or in a nation where the dear leader will strap you to a AA gun because he didn’t like your musical composition ???

          I didn’t think so. 🙂

          • I don’t think people understand the concept of strength keeping freedom alive. Not that we enjoy the freedoms we once did but that’s changing for the better, IMHO

      13. So who/what gives us the right to be the self-appointed police/gestapo for the world? Should we annihilate millions in the Korean countryside because of big mouthed threats from a fat little madman and allegations of Iran and N.Korea planning on building bombs together?
        And also possibly start WW3!?
        This IS madness!

        Instead of spending trillions on foreign adventures, why not start worrying about our country, secure our borders, get industry and manufacturing back here in the USA again, shore-up our infrastructure rather than invade several countries a year trying to effect regime change and spreading ‘democracy’ from the barrel of a gun!

        • RickE your correct. And I might add if the US military quit protecting the assets of those who took our production jobs to foreign places. Those jobs would very quickly return to the safety of the USA soil. Its our military precense that enables those folks to feel secure operating in those third world places. It does give me a glimmer of hope that most here on SHTF can see who the actual bad guys are.

        • The REALITY of the Great Game for world domination is that the civilization with the most power must exercise that power; both soft and hard, to maintain their hegemony. If it doesn’t do that successfully it is toast and its citizens suffer.

          As an American Citizen I prefer our government, as flawed as it is, to Islamic Law or the whims of a dictator. Our POWER gives us the right to exercise it or lose it.

          USA !!! USA !!! USA !!! 🙂

      14. Report: Iran And North Korea Are “Collaborating In An Exchange Of Materials And Technicians To Mutually Develop Nuclear Weapons Capabilities”

        Even if this is true … how is this a bad thing?

        Considering how US Foreign Policy goes – it should be well known to all, how much of a a failure it is and continues to be. These countries have a right to defend themselves from Western Powers/Israel.

        Regardless of what countries origin may be … if there is ever a legitimate attack against America from an outside source – America deserves it!!!

        The US Gov. has failed not only the American people, but other nations globally. The American people have failed the American Government, because they have not kept the Government in “check” — (keep voting SLAVES)

        I find it un-nerving that some here at SHTFplan regulars postings, … sound a bit more like the MSM narrative when it comes to other countries.

        I’m a bit confused — most here are in agreement about how the US Gov. conducts it’s business (locally & abroad) … but … yet some support US Gov, regardless if they are in the wrong about how they conduct their Foreign Policies and influence.

        Nothing Patriotic about supporting a “rogue” Government such as the USA. It appears many cannot decipher their own line in the sand of where to be at this moment.

        • I agree 100%. The US should fuck off and stay out of other business. It astounds me too at how so called patriots will fight to the death to defend the bankers and politico’s (not our country). Die to defend our slavery and the enrichment of the .01%. Ignorant fools….

      15. Any nation with nuclear weapons and an effective ICBM system is a potential threat to any other nation on earth. North Korea and Iran helping each other is no surprise. What really should be of concern is what help have they received from Russia and China with an EMP weapon.

      16. Complete bullshit.

        There is ZERO evidence that North Korea has EMP capability. To seriously affect the US requires six nukes carefully spaced at the right altitude. There is NO evidence NK has this capability.

        Second, read my lips: Iran does not have and has never had any intention of building nuclear weapons, with the possible exception of a “feasibility study” they had back when they were afraid Saddam had a nuke program. Iran MEVER had a development and deployment program. After the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, Iran ceased ALL work on nuclear weapons and has not restarted it. This is the conclusion of all 16 US intelligence agencies AND Israeli intelligence.

        Stop with the “Iran nuke” BULLSHIT!

        • I concur!

        • One nuclear weapon about 300 or 400 miles above Kansas is all it would take to EMP 95% of the US.

          • Like that’s a bad thing? Let them stupid fookin millenials figure out an answer.

      17. The title would scare sh**less out of those who didn’t know this information before and would hurry in support of Trump to bomb sovereign nations. Please be more responsible when publish an article such as this.

        On that note, can you blame them to have something to protect themselves from the west and US?

      18. Can you really blame them for this? At the behest of the Money Changers, the US has been threatening nuclear annihilation of both nations for years. And if there is an EMP attack on the US, it is almost guaranteed to be a 9/11-style False Flag to be blamed on one, or both, and maybe Russia as well.

        • “And if there is an EMP attack on the US, it is almost guaranteed to be a 9/11-style False Flag to be blamed on one, or both, and maybe Russia as well.”


          Unfortunately … many people, and some here at SHTFplan rather take the MSM/FoxNews narrative than face the reality of truth.

          “Why live a life of denial …when the truth is right there in front of your face!”

          • FTW, I know… it’s like talking to your hand or something…

      19. Im more worried abount the USA government agencys than I am about Korea Russia China and all those middle eastern places combined. The very same genocide is scheduled for the white citizens of the USA as was done to the native americans in the 1800,s. They haven’t been able to disarm the baby boomers. The millenials will give up almost all of their god given rights. They are patiently waiting for us boomers to die off. Or maybe use some sort of false flag to justify killing off 90%.

        • They need bodies to be blunt. That’s why they are letting low-life junk into Western countries. These clowns will be drafted and sent to fight on the frontlines. All they have to do is tell them the Russians are whities and ‘rayciss’ and the Chinks are ‘rayciss’ and the North Koreans are ‘rayciss’ and the Iranians are ‘rayciss’. Maybe have the North Koreans be cruel to a transgender sex freak or somesuch hyped up PS BS and all the great general public will support WWIII and the draft.

      20. HaHaHa…Dr Peter Vincent Pry as an “expert”

        He usually appears as a guest on ex-con Jim Bakker’s show where they try to sell you “solar generators” for $4000 that consist of battery in a case and a tiny solar panel and a couple of cheap lights.

        What a warmongering maroon…

        • Yep, Every single portable solar generator I have ever seen is a total ripoff. You can make your own (but you may have to spend 1.5 hours or so online learning) much cheaper. Only lazy stupid people buy that shit, it’s really simple to do yourself. All you need to know is + and – and wattage and amp hours. For 4 grand I could make a pretty good system that has 10X the power of those fags…..

      21. Somebody figured out a surefire way to get rid of Kim. Leak to the press that Kim was going to testify against Hillary and within 2 days he’d be found dead with 2 chopsticks in the back of his head. Suicide.

      22. All of the Arabs that are fighting for US dollars and American deep state interests are being supplied with massive amounts of cash and military hardware to supply them are a big part of the exploding US “defense” budget. Yet somehow this is considered patriotic to support right here at home. Better to keep the people divided with left vs right fake politics while the only thing that matters, warmongering is out of sight and mostly out of mind. Tried and true effective mass control, Americans are too busy and too distracted with plunging economic survival futures to even notice.

      23. The internet has been a perfect instrument for the spy state to follow the pulse of this nations people regarding anti government and anti war sentiment. How else would they know what anybody thinks outside their divide and conquer fabricated and controlled street protests that fit their overall agendas? Thus the concentrated effort to kill Internet free speech that questions the official storyline.

        • Facebook was originally a Pentagon/DARPA project called Lifelog. The government has an algorithm for every American. Why do they need that? The answer is control. Total control. They know everything about you. Everything. What you read. Your medical. Who you talk to and when. Who your friends talk to. What you watch. What you buy. License plate scanners. Facial recognition. Even at the Post Office. All mail labels and addresses are scanned. And then when they’re ready, they’ll flip the switch and presto you’re screwed.

      24. Israeli airstrikes continue in Syria. A huge dilemma for Russian support of the Assad government whether to stop such action. Trump controlled by the same aggressors undeniably. An outlaw nuclear armed tiny state whose history is built entirely on terrorism while mandating US war policy plus the attacks on free speech of the American people. Coercive enough to question the US governments subservience to a foreign power while the American citizens interests are ignored.

      25. I guess Trump demanding NFL owners fire players for not standing during the national anthem is a touchy subject. Employers can generally control work conduct that is paid. American bread and circus distractions are not to be messed with, racial issues where most players are black should take the pay with no political upheaval so they think. It is a violent sport, concussions and other serious injury take their toll. Two small college players died last weekend after games, less people are choosing to play at all levels. Touch football and lower pro pay is coming. Americans love of brutal play does fit the overall mindset of anger presently. Welcome to wimpy football losing more fans.

      26. Well well well
        Let’s take a look at the us navy sailors that where captured
        Was it a incident of poor leadership and incompetence?
        Or was it an exchange of some sort? My guess is it was a meeting to
        give Iran some form of technology from your old buddy obama.
        Think about folks.

      27. SHTF is becoming a NEOCON propaganda site

      28. So much poz in the comments here it’s amazing…

      29. Venezuela provided the uranium, Iran refined it, North Korea built the bomb. Both Iran and North Korea are building delivery systems while Venezuela falls apart…
