For those whoe have seen the animatrix(www.theanimatrix.com) "the 2nd renassaince part 2." Unless I am mistaken There is a HUGE discrepancy here. From what I understand, when a nuclear bomb is detonated, an EMP is sent out from the discharge. Part two mentions how Nuclear weapons were ineffective against the machines. Then in The Matrix they mention EMP is their only weapon against the Machines because it overides their circuits and what not. In Part 2 of 2nd rennaisance, you see easily 20 nuclear bombs going off. And they describe how they covered the entire 01 nation in fire. the detonations would have destroy the machines if not for the intense heats and energy, the EMP after-shock would short out the rest. What am I missing here? this seems like a huge deal, something that shouldn't have been overlooked, do nuclea reactions NOT send out EMPs as I think they do? what could an electronical device do to shield itself from EMP, if there IS something, then the machines in the current day matrix should be able to protect themselves.
