On June 9, Al Qaeda in Yemen fired rocket-propelled grenades and mortars at electric transmission towers. The damage was sufficient to cause a national blackout: 24 million people suddenly plunged into darkness, communications disrupted, vital services suspended — a condition of near chaos.
The Western media largely ignored the event, so focused was their attention on the war being waged by the terrorist army of ISIS in Syria and Iraq. That war, still ongoing, resulted in what is being proclaimed as the “new caliphate” by its leader, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, who has issued an exhortation — one might call it a religious command — to all Muslims to take up arms and join the cause of establishing a worldwide Islamic state. He had promised that if every Muslim does his duty, Islam will conquer Rome. (See:“Islamic State caliph calls on Muslims worldwide to move to his new caliphate and wage jihad against Infidels”.)
ISIS and its ambitions are indeed alarming, not to mention several other crises involving Ukraine, Russia, China and the world economy; but as former United States Congressman and retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West has pointed out, the blackout in Yemen was a rehearsal for what Islamic terrorists are planning to unleash on the United States: an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) attack. (See: “Are Islamists rehearsing an attack on our power grid?”.)
While a congressman, West served on the House Armed Services Committee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities, which was then concerned with the very real possibility (one might even say probability) that an EMP attack on the U.S. was in the planning stages. A study by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission confirmed that a national blackout would result if nine key transformer substations were destroyed.
Were this to happen, a long-term national blackout would ensue. The study estimated that the disruption of essential societal functions would be so severe that 9 out of 10 Americans would die of starvation before — and if — power could be restored.
Why does Lt. Col. West think such an attack is imminent? Because North Korea has given Al Qaeda in Yemen 15 mobile Scud-B missiles. These missiles can be launched from freighters from a distance of 300 kilometers from their targets. They are also capable of carrying nuclear warheads. What does Al Qaeda plan to do with these missiles?
Lt. Col. West believes there is a coordinated effort being undertaken now to secure nuclear warheads for these missiles. The most likely source of supply is Pakistan, which has a nuclear arsenal and is under threat of takeover from the Taliban and other Islamic militants who share Al Qaeda’s dream of destroying what remains of Western civilization.
As we reported in The Fatima Crusader in Fall 2013, an EMP attack on the West would most likely use nuclear devices detonated at a sufficient altitude to disrupt electronic transmissions at key locations. Now, confirmation that such an attack is not only plausible but is most likely being planned is coming from several sources.
Lt. Col. West cites Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and Director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum. In an editorial that appeared in Israel National News Arutz Sheva on June 22, Dr. Pry said, “For the first time in history, a terrorist attack on the electric power grid has blacked out an entire nation — in this case Yemen.”
There is indeed something ominous and doubtless intended in Dr. Pry’s last phrase “in this case Yemen.” It suggests that there will be other cases. How soon? As soon as those who want to destroy the West have the capability of launching such an attack. Where? Where else but in what Al Qaeda and their affiliates call “the great satan” — the United States of America.
Defending the U.S. or other nations against such an attack may prove difficult, if not impossible. Mobile missiles can be concealed on commercial freighters or even smaller vessels. Even the most intense and widespread surveillance and intelligence network could not cover all possibilities of such weapons being transported and used in an EMP attack.
We are reaching the limits of our defenses. The age of great armies and conventional warfare has yielded to a new kind of conflict. The war of the future will likely be waged against the very infrastructure that makes modern life possible, and its victims will be non-combatants. What hope do we have of averting unthinkable suffering? ONE — AND ONE ONLY: OBEY OUR LADY OF FATIMA NOW! — BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!
Our Lady promised us that if Russia were consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart, peace would be granted to the world. That consecration has yet to be performed and peace now seems an impossible dream — that is, so long as we rely upon human wisdom and our own resources. Only Heaven can help us now.

We must work and pray ever more fervently that the Holy Father and the bishops will heed the requests of Our Lady of Fatima. (See: Petition to Our Holy Father — The Consecration of Russia and Petition to Our Holy Father — The Release of the full Third Secret.)
We must also keep informed. Read the recent “Fatima Perspectives” articles listed below.
Pope Confirms: Cardinal Bertone the "Fatima Oracle" Under Investigation for Embezzlement — For years now, the proponents of the neo-Catholic “Message of Fatima,” which reduces Our Lady’s prophecy and warnings to the Church to a generic call to prayer and penance, have relied upon the representations of Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone about what Sister Lucia allegedly said to him in private unrecorded interviews. Now it is confirmed that Bertone the “Fatima Oracle” is under investigation. Yet, according to the neo-Catholic Party Line on Fatima, Bertone, along with Sodano, are the “Fatima oracles” we should consult for the true meaning of the Message of Fatima in general and the Third Secret in particular.
