George Knapp welcomed aviation expert and author William B. Scott for a discussion about possible World War III scenarios and the latest in military technology. He described one possible scenario in which North Korea launches a missile to knock out space satellites. This could also involve an electromagnetic pulse that damages circuitry on the ground, greatly affecting Americans ability to use ATM and credit cards. Such an attack is "like pouring molasses on society-- everything slows down," he said.
Continuing the scenario, Iran could take advantage of America's satellite loss by launching a nuclear-tipped missile at Israel, and terrorist cells could "spoof" GPS signals to cause airline crashes, he detailed. While no one wants to take the U.S. on in a conventional war, the country is vulnerable to space and cyberspace attacks, and has a lack of policy and infrastructure in dealing with such "asymmetric warfare," he warned.
Scott outlined a number of military technologies that could covertly exist, or are not widely known, including:
First hour guest, MUFON investigator Chuck Zukowski talked about recent cattle mutilation cases in Colorado. He noted there were black triangle UFO sightings over Colorado Springs, on the same night in March 2009 that cattle were found with inexplicable mutilations some 100 miles away.
