>>US beam weapon cruelty
>>author: theresa mitchell
>>Following on Amy Goodman's US exclusive report on laser/infrared/microwave 
>>weapons in Iraq, a bit of supportive research
>>from democracynow.org Tuesday:
>>[Iraq:]....SAAD AL FALLUJI: Twenty-six in the bus. About twenty of them, some 
>>of them have no head. They had been cut. Some of them, the arms, the legs. 
>>The only one who didn't injure was the driver, and really I don't know how he 
>>reached our hospital, because one hand, one arm was in his lap, one head 
>>beside him. It was a very, very strange, horrible thing. In the roof of the 
>>car there was parts of the bodies: omentum, intestines, brains, all parts of 
>>the body. It was miserable. Very, very, very, very miserable.
>>GEERT VAN MOORTER: Do you have idea with what kind of weapons they attacked 
>>that bus?
>>SAAD AL FALLUJI: This bus, we didn't know what kind of weapon hit. Really 
>>what we saw cut arms, cut legs, cut head, abdomen, open abdomen, viscera 
>>DOCTOR NO. 2: It seems to be a new weapon.
>>Democracy Now reported various incidents of apparent energy weapon attacks, 
>>all on civilians. There seem to be several ways of murdering Iraqis with beam 
>>weapons. This is from William Thomas' website:
>>" Pacifying" Rays Pose New Hazards To Iraqis
>>By William Thomas 01/24/05 ( World Exclusive )
>>Desperate to improve images of civilian carnage, US commanders are using 
>>portable electromagnetic-frequency weapons in Fallujah and other "hot spots" 
>>in the Sunni Triangle to pacify restive neighborhoods with invisible EM 
>>radiation. "Active Denial" antenna arrays mounted on Humvees are also being 
>>deployed to panic and disperse hostile crowds by flash-burning exposed flesh 
>>with microwaves. But unintended side effects from the hidden rooftop 
>>transmitters are reportedly triggering violent attacks by exposed 
>>insurgents�Xwhile leading to AWOL rates of up to 15% among US forces 
>>disoriented by these same weapons, as well as the electromagnetic emanations 
>>from high-power radars, radios and "jammers".
>>On the rooftop of a shrapnel-pocked building in the ruins of Fallujah, a team 
>>of GI's stealthily sets up a gray plastic dome about two-feet in diameter. 
>>Keeping well back from the sight lines of the street and nearby buildings, 
>>they plug the cable connectors on the side of the "popper" into a power unit. 
>>The grunts have no clue what the device does. They are just following orders.
>>" Most of the worker-bees that are placing these do not even know what is 
>>inside the 'domes', just that they were told where to place them by Intel 
>>weenies with usually no nametag," reports my source, a very well informed 
>>combat veteran I will call "Hank".
>>" Intel" stands for "intelligence" officers who target the most restive 
>>neighborhoods in a country gripped by anarchy and chaos. The lack of nametags 
>>indicates membership in a spooky "alphabet agency", either within or outside 
>>the military chain of command. Similar "black: teams removed "Made In The 
>>USA" chemical weapons from Iraqi trenches after Desert Storm. [Bringing The 
>>War Home by William Thomas]
>>The grunts call the plastic devices "poppers" or "domes". Once activated, 
>>each hidden transmitter emits a widening circle of invisible energy capable 
>>of passing through metal, concrete and human skulls up to half a mile away. 
>>"They are saturating the area with ULF, VLF and UHF freqs," Hanks says, with 
>>equipment derived from US Navy undersea sonar and communications.
>>But it's not being used to locate and talk to submarines under Baghdad.
>>After powering up the unit, the grunts quickly exit the area. It is their 
>>commanders' fervent hope that any male survivors enraged by brutal American 
>>bombardments that damaged virtually every building in this once thriving 
>>"City of Mosques", displacing a quarter-million residents while murdering 
>>thousands of children, women and elders in their homes�Xwill lose all 
>>incentive for further resistance and revenge.
>>... . Hank stays in close touch with his unit serving "in theater" in Iraq. 
>>When I asked how many "poppers" are being used to irradiate Iraqi 
>>neighborhoods, he checked and got back to me. There are "at least 25 of these 
>>that have been deployed to theater, and used. Some have conked out and been 
>>removed, so I do not know how many are currently active and broadcasting."
>>Then there's this report from Aviation Week, four years ago:
>>USAF Acknowledges Beam Weapon Readiness
>>By David A. Fulghum/Aviation Week & Space Technology
>>04-Oct-2002 5:20 PM U.S. EDT
>>... .The range of HPM weapons has always been a concern. Tests have shown 
>>effects at tens to "more than" hundreds of feet. Walling seemed more 
>>optimistic. "With current technology, the range for a tactical microwave 
>>weapon could be in the tens of kilometers, and future advances . . . should 
>>permit the development of even longer ranges," the report said.Other 
>>advantages cited for HPM weapons are that they would be immune to the weather 
>>and could produce multiple shots on a single mission. However, the report 
>>also alludes to single-shot designs. These latter seem to address concerns 
>>that side and back lobes from the generation of an HPM pulse could affect the 
>>carrying aircraft's own electronics.Power levels for HPM weapons are 
>>increasing. The report said one microwave source weighing less that 45 lb. 
>>radiated 1 gigawatt of power within a few nanoseconds. A 400-lb. system 
>>radiated 20 gigawatts. The report noted that Hoover Dam generates 2 gigawatts 
>>per day. The HPM weapon
>> would draw power from the air vehicle's engines, which would let it make a 
>> number of attacks during a mission.
>>[Note that the size of the weapons has decreased to ground-deployable size.]

>>Interview with Doug Beason, Los Alamos labs
>>Beason: Right, the Advanced Tactical Laser is actually a smaller laser than 
>>the ABL that is being put on a smaller tactical platform. Right now, they're 
>>looking at a C-130, but it could possibly be put on a helicopter. That's a 
>>laser that is in a class that is greater than 50 kilowatts, so it's a few 
>>orders of magnitude less powerful than the Airborne Laser. Its missions are 
>>designed to supplement what the Airborne Laser is doing, that is, to help 
>>with special operations and antiterrorism and that, but at very close 
>>distances, that is, kilometer range versus the many hundreds of kilometers 
>>range that the Airborne Laser is working on.
>>The Zeus is actually a solid-state laser developed by the Army to heat up 
>>mines, to be able to clear minefields at a distance. In fact, the Zeus was 
>>deployed to Afghanistan, and several hundred mines were cleared by the use of 
>>this tactical weapon. There is another one called the THEL, or the Tactical 
>>High Energy Laser, that was developed for the Army, and this laser had 
>>actually shot down Katyusha rockets in White Sands Missile Range, and after 
>>over 30 Katyusha rockets were shot down, they decided to see if they could 
>>also shoot down mortars and artillery shells, and they were successful on 
>>If, as Beason says, lasers are available that can blow up mines, they're just 
>>a casually cruel thought away from being used to attack humans. The THEL as 
>>described seems effective until you realize that the rockets or artillery 
>>shells have to be coming directly at the weapon in order to be in range of 
>>its rays. It might make some spook think: What else can I do with this thing?
>>Checking on industrial lasers, I found that a 240 watt welding-strength laser 
>>is available that weighs 84 pounds, plus 29 pounds for the RF supply, 52 
>>inches long; a laser that size could be easily mounted on a vehicle, and its 
>>enormous power needs could be supplied with a generator attached to a battery 
>>of quick-discharge capacitors. If the thing can weld metal, it can cut limbs 
>>and explode heads... It would seem that laser warfare is here now, and it is 
>>making its debut in secret, murderous, and immoral anticivilian warfare in 
>>And we pay the bill, and take the blame.

>>From Seattle     link
>>For most of the 90's, There was a modified commercial airliner with an 
>>elongated bubble thing on top of it which housed a military laser, parked on 
>>the very south end of Boeing field in Seattle (The field that runs along I-5 
>>just south of downtown Seattle).
>>It's not there anymore, I wonder where it went.
