Warning says Iranian SCUD could do $771 billion damage

Sept. 11, 2007 - A new report from Sage Policy Group of Baltimore warns that a SCUD-type missile could be launched from a small ship 200 miles from the coast of the United States. If this missile detonated a small nuclear warhead 10 or more miles above the U.S. it could unleash a nuclear-generated electromagnetic pulse (EMP) over Washington, D.C. Such an explosion could cause $771 billion in damage, destroying all electronics within its range, and leaving the country with technology comparable to that available in the 1800s. Iran is racing toward development of a nuclear weapon, and at least four other rogue regimes and terrorists are also trying to acquire this weapon.
