North Korea and Iran have been plotting to take out parts of the US power grid via a cyber attack or nuclear blast.

The Pentagon take threats seriously when it comes to taking out our power grid. That would be absolutely devastating to our country, and it is absolutely do-able, which is the bad part.

However, the Trump administration is working quickly to make the US less vulnerable to that type of attack.

Washington Examiner reports:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has charged BAE Systems to map a system that can detect a cyber attack and gin up an alternative communications network for military and civilian use if the grid is fried, according to Defense Systems, the online newsletter.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey has been warning for years that the grid is extremely vulnerable and recently the Pentagon, and some states, have taken the warning seriously. Woolsey and former EMP Commission chief of staff Peter Vincent Pry have pointed a finger at North Korea, which is now threatening the U.S.
