According to Wikipedia, the US Government’s Cheyenne Mountain Underground military complex was: “[B]uilt under 2,000 feet (610 m) of granite on five acres. Fifteen three-story buildings are protected from movement by an earthquake or explosion by a system of giant springs that the buildings sit on and flexible pipe connectors to limit the operational effect of movement.
The complex is the only high altitude Department of Defense facility certified to be able to sustain an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) [attack]. There is a large quantity of cots for most of the personnel and suites for “top brass” within the nuclear bunker. Amenities include a medical facility, store, cafeteria, and fitness centers inside and outside the mountain.
The bunker is built to deflect a 30 megaton nuclear explosion within 2 kilometres (1.2 mi). Within a mountain tunnel are sets of 25-ton blast doors and another for the civil engineering department. The doors were built so that they can always be opened if needed. Should a nuclear blast hit the building, they are designed to sustain a blast wave.
‘There is a network of blast valves with unique filters to capture air-borne chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear contaminants.“
The thing that has people alarmed? Cheyenne Mountain was closed almost ten years ago, according to The Daily Mail, “Almost 10 years ago, the military closed the secretive defense complex carved into Cheyenne Mountain that for decades monitored American skies for threats.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command operations center was moved to nearby Peterson Air Force Base, which is home to the U.S. Northern Command created after the Sept. 11 attacks.”
There are rumors of a nuclear attack, the start of WW3, as well as an EMP attack (which would shut down the entire electrical grid of the United States), or some combination of the three since the announcement.
According to an article in Off The Grid News titled “Pentagon Finally Admits The Truth About EMPs“, they say: “America’s military commanders are worried about the possibility of an attack on the United States by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapon – so much so that the Pentagon plans to spend nearly $1 billion to move the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) communications into an EMP-resistant bunker.
“Because of the very nature of the way that Cheyenne Mountain is built, it’s EMP-hardened,” NORAD’s commander, Admiral William Gortney, told the media.”
So why is the Pentagon re-opening the complex that Cheyenne Mountain houses? Let us know what you think below!
