I do not aim with my hand, I aim with my eye. I do not shoot with my hand, I shoot with my mind. I do not kill with my gun, I kill with my heart.

I don't think anybody doubted the realism of EMP weaponry. All it takes is a nuclear blast in the atmosphere. Like in GoldenEye and MW2.

Nuclear blasts tend to be more devastating and widespread than a missile that can quickly take down a specific target.

Boeing creates a missile that can EMP a building and they turn it into SUPER EMP DESTRUCTO-WEAPON THAT CAN DESTROY THE ENTIRE NATIONS!

While EMP weapons do exist, that particular one does not exist as explained in the article.

Hell the Sun is the largest EMP weapon around.. it could accidentally wipe out all of our electronics if it gets even a little cranky.

They have some of them as small as a brief case, others quite large.

That site is a tabloid site... similar to "The Sun" or "The National Inquirer"

Yeah... The title is dumb. But the weapon is cool.

Your also missing the more redundant part of that statement... if It is a missile, and it hits a building.... what is there left to EMP? and if doenst hit the building and just EMPs it... why not just make it destroy the building instead?

PDF file report about what DARPA and the government is doing to detect Nuclear Threats and Nuclear Testing around the globe.

page 58 mentioned the Vela class satellites that have EMP technology on them.
