South Korea Creates Graphite Bomb

Oct 10, 2017

South Korea reportedly has developed a new bomb designed to take out North Korea’s entire power grid. The weapon is called a graphite bomb also known as a “blackout bomb.” These were first used by the U.S. in the 1990 Gulf War against Iraq. The weapon releases a “cloud of extremely fine, chemically treated carbon filaments over electrical components. The filaments are so fine that they act like a cloud, but cause short circuits in electrical equipment.” South Korea’s government announced that it has secured “all technologies for the development of a graphite bomb . . . “ “it is in the stage where we can build the bombs anytime,” according to a South Korean military official. The bomb was developed as a part of South Korea’s “three pillars” plan for retaliation against North Korea. The first part of the plan involves detecting and intercepting North Korean missiles. The second part involves “launching attacks against the country’s leadership.” The North Korean regime uses holidays to showcase its strength. It is expected that the government will do something on October 10 to celebrate the founding of the nation’s communist party.
