    New US Anti-Nuke Weapon Will Fry NK Missiles Before They Leave Asia


    Whenever we throw a frozen burrito in the microwave, we often talk about “nuking” it.

    Now, U.S. officials hope that a weaponized version of the same technology could help “nuke” nukes — particularly of the North Korean variety.

    According to NBC News, the United States currently has microwave weapons in its arsenal that potentially can scramble any North Korean nuclear missile without even having to physically intercept it, something that could render Kim Jong Un’s latest ICBMs useless.

    High level U.S. officials confirmed to NBC that the weapons were discussed during an August meeting at the White House.

    “The microwave weapons, known as CHAMPs, are fitted into an air-launched cruise missile and delivered from B-52 bombers,” NBC reported, using the acronym for the Counter-electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project.
