A cover story in U.S. News and World Report entitled "Wonder Weapons" (July 7, 1997) catalogued a growing inventory of sophisticated, non-lethal weapons being developed by the U.S. military. Illustrated with grotesque, comic book style illustrations of futuristic soldiers firing stun guns at civilians, the article underscored the shift of the military's mission from national defense to a sort of world police force. The USN article is just one of many indicators revealing that the military is being reinvented and re-equipped for the conflicts of the 21st century.
The "non-lethal" anti-personnel weapons described in the USN article fit into three categories, the first being a laser type of weapon designed to disable an adversary with temporary blindness. Other weapons fit into the acoustic or "sonic" category. Acoustic weapons, set to resonate at certain frequencies, can vibrate the internal organs of targeted personnel, stun them and induce nausea or even "liquefy their bowels and reduce them to quivering diarrheic messes", according to the Pentagon. A third type of weapon is electromagnetic which emits radio frequencies that heat a target like a microwave oven, the effects ranging from discomfort, fever, or death, depending on the distance. Very low frequency electromagnetic radiation has been used to put test animals into a stupor or cause their brain cells to release histamine that would cause flu-like symptoms in a human. (Source:U.S. News & World Report, 7-6-97). New anti-personnel weapons come in a variety of sizes. A laser may be mounted on a soldier's rifle and acoustic weapons could be mounted on helicopters, humvees or armored personnel carriers, promising a wide array of delivery options for maximum effectiveness.
In 1995 an annual meeting of four-star U.S. Air Force generals reviewed more than 1,000 potential projects in this field, leaving the possibilities to be limited only by one's imagination. Secrecy enshrouds new anti-personnel weapon technology. After research and development, successful prototypes are classified as "top secret" and disappear into the realms of the defense department's "black budget" - safe from the scrutiny of Congress or the public. "People [in the military] go silent on this issue...more than any other issue. People just do not want to talk about" anti-personnel research said Louis Slesin, editor of the trade journal Microwave News. (ibid.)
The increase of "non-lethal" technology is matched by a corresponding increase in military training in "low intensity conflict" situations. This was best illustrated by the recent Cooperative Nugget '97 exercises, conducted from June 11 through July 4, 1997 at the U.S. Army's Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana. 2,500 U.S. troops as well as 1,100 troops from NATO and "Partnership for Peace" countries participated. Even Albania, in the clutches of anarchy and occupied by foreign troops, sent a platoon to participate at NATO expense. Exercises emphasized "peacekeeping" skills such as how to deal with hostile civilians, protesters, conflict between ethnic groups, snipers, how to evacuate the wounded, etc. Americans dressed in civilian clothes served as role players in the drama acting as antagonists or passive civilians in need of evacuation or medical help. The civilian theater of operation was striking, as was the emphasis on the close "cooperation" between the soldiers of different nationalities.
Military training for civilian unrest is not limited to Cooperative Nugget 97, but has been ongoing in various places in the U.S. over the past 3 years. On May 3, 1994, President Clinton signed Presidential Decision Directive 25, which describes how American troops will serve under foreign commanders (released only to top administration officials). On May 10, 1994 the million dollar question was popped via The Combat Arms Survey created by Lt. Cdr. Guy Cunningham, USN to U.S. Marines at the Twenty-nine Palms Marine Base in California. Question 46 asks if Marines would obey orders to fire on U.S. citizens who refuse or resist firearms confiscation by the U.S. government.
On April 22, 1994 soldiers from the U.S., France, the Netherlands and Surinam trained in Operation Agile Provider '94, which was conducted in several southern U.S. states and trained in "forcible entry", among other things. On June 13 and 14, 1995 helicopters from the U.S. Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, N.C., flew to two Chicago suburbs at low level at night without notifying the public beforehand. There was gunfire, explosions, windows in homes were rattled, and an abandoned seminary was invaded to "give the pilots a chance to train in an urban environment," according to the Defense Department (Source: Road to Socialism and the New World Order by Dennis Cuddy, Ph.D.) There are many credible reports of military forces suddenly "invading" a peaceful, American community, terrorizing its inhabitants and causing an uproar, all in the name of a "training exercise."
A projection published in the January '96 professional journal of the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, N.C. sheds even more light on this ominous evolution of military doctrine. In the scenario the ongoing "revolution of military affairs " (RMA) will lead to a 21st century police state capable of using "bioelectronics", "psychotechnology" and chemical tranquilizers to fight "conflicts short of war" and subdue restive populations -- including Americans. The U.S. adopted a strategy of "dynamic defense", a use of "computer-controlled perception-moulding systems" and other forms of mind control. "The old Cold War structures - Department of Defense, Department of State, Central Intelligence Agency", etc., were replaced by two organizations called "The Conflict Preemption Agency" and the "Conflict Containment Agency". The latter agency "integrated the military [and] civilian law enforcement" and intelligence agencies. "The organizational division between the military and law-enforcement was abolished." (Source: The New American magazine April 29, 1996).
On July 12 President Clinton suggested that U.S. troops might remain in Yugoslavia after the current NATO mission expires a year from now, according to theWashington Post.. Bosnia is the current laboratory for this "revolution of military affairs" and, even though most Americans and the Congress have expressed their opposition to stationing U.S. troops there, the president sent them anyway and will incrementally extend their presence indefinitely. A 1952 globalist map, adopted by the World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government and made available by the National Economic Council of New York City, predicts the presence of U.S. troops in Yugoslavia as a police force, with foreign troops policing U.S. territory. The future is now.
From new non-lethal anti-personnel weapons to joint "peacekeeping" exercises and future blueprints for "conflict containment", the pieces of the puzzle have fallen into place. The New Order is anticipating and preparing for "low intensity conflict" (civil unrest) on a massive scale. One might wonder why the military would bother with non-lethal weapons until it becomes clear that they are preparing for conflict with civilians. The world's military forces are being severed from national loyalties and are being integrated into regional alliances such as NATO and Partnership for Peace. Machine guns and bombs are not always practical for use against restive populations. Non-lethal weapons combined with "peacekeeping" strategies are a method of force more in keeping with the ruling elite's self-image of a "benevolent dictatorship".
As the Cooperative Nugget '97 exercise began, General John Sheehan, USMC, Supreme Allied Commander NATO Atlantic spouted Orwellian doublespeak in his opening remarks. He said, "To the soldiers assembled here today, I congratulate you because you truly are the next generation of peacemakers, the peacemakers who are so necessary to the world we live in, because it will not take less soldiers to do the work we are involved in, it will take greater soldiers who understand what working together means....We are truly at the beginning of a new millennium where nations can and must work together." "Peacemaker" interpreted means "one who enforces the edicts of the New Order on uncooperative civilians", and "greater soldiers" being those who have successfully stifled national loyalties in favor of world government.
Speaking of this New Order, the Scriptures declare, "And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully.... and by peace shall destroy many. He shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand." Daniel 8:24, 25.
