Here we go, with Jay Wye's obsession with an EMP attack. Hey Jay Wye, please name for me the country that is willing to get hit by 300 to 400 nuclear missiles in response to attaching us? An EMP attack cannot know out our hardened missile silos nor our nuclear submarines that have multiple warheads.

The Defense Department "Sequester" – a budget gimmick originally described as "ridiculous" by Harry Reid and the President's Chief of Staff – has become a Gordian Knot that the White House and Congress have so far failed to unravel.  Originally scheduled to be force implemented on January 1, 2013, it escaped solution during the New Year's Eve fiscal cliff fiasco.  Instead, the problem was just kicked down the road a few more weeks with a new drop-dead date of March 1. 

Rather than providing relief, the legislative inaction accentuates uncertainty and compresses even further the time...
