- 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".
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 its 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 -- will
lose all incentive for further resistance and revenge.
A dedicated former soldier, whose experiences during and after Desert Storm
are chronicled in my book, Bringing The War Home, 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."
Hank is still losing friends in Iraq, where front-line soldiers put their
current casualty figures from all causes -- combat, accidents, psychological
crackups and suicides -- at 5,000 dead and 22,000 to 30,000 injured.
Hank also blames those at the top for hospital counts of upwards of 65,000
children killed since the 2003 invasion. He is concerned that innocent
Iraqi families and unsuspecting GIs alike are being used as test subjects
for a new generation of "psychotronic" weapons using invisible
beams across the entire electromagnetic spectrum to selectively alter moods,
behavior and bodily processes.
"The "poppers, are capable of using a combo of ULF, VLF, UHF
and EHF wavelengths in any combination at the same time, sometimes using
one as a carrier wave for the others," Hank explains, in a process
called superheterodyning. The silent frequencies daily sweeping Fallujah
and other trouble spots are the same Navy "freqs that drove whales
nuts and made them go astray onto beaches."
- The Gulf War veteran observes that occupied Iraq has
become a "saturation environment" of electromagnetic radiation.
Potentially lethal electromagnetic smog from high-power US military electronics
and experimental beam weapons is placing already hard-hit local populations-particularly
children -- at even higher risk of experiencing serious illness, suicidal
depression, impaired cognitive ability, even death.
American troops constantly exposed "up close" to their own microwave
transmitters, battlefield radars and RF weapons are also seeing their health
eroded by electromagnetic sickness. It's common, Hank recalls, for GIs
to warm themselves on cold desert nights by basking in the microwaves radiating
from their QUEEMS communications and RATT radar rigs.
Constant microwave emissions from ground-sweeping RATT rigs and SINGARS
mobile microwave networks are much more powerful than civilian microwave
cell phone nets linked in many clinical studies to maladies ranging from
asthma, cataracts, headaches, memory loss, early Alzheimer's, bad dreams
Even more powerful US military radars, radios and "jammers" blasting
from ground bases and overflying aircraft add to this electromagnetic din.
This is bad enough. But this is also Iraq, Hank says, where ever-present
sand acts as miniature quartz reflectors, unpredictably amplifying the
ricocheting electronic smog so thick that if it were visible, every vehicle
in Baghdad and the surrounding Sunni Triangle would be driving blind with
their headlights on.
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
- This is grim news to friend and foe alike -- already
overloaded by constant adrenal stress, waterborne pollutants, infectious
sand fleas, dehydration, pharmaceutical drugs and exposure to radioactive
Uranium-238 fired in "hose "em down" exuberance by US ground
and air cannons and cruise missiles.
As Hank puts it, DU is "the gift that keeps on giving." For the
next four billion years, medical investigators say, large populated expanses
of Kosovo, Afghanistan, Puerto Rico and Iraq will remain lethally radioactive
from Made In America depleted uranium dust.
What kind of people would do this?
Clinical tests have repeatedly shown how microwaves "rev up"
incipient cancer cells several hundred times. Triggered by nuclear radiation,
and turned rogue by electromagnetic warfare unleashed by US forces, human
cancer cells have been found to continue proliferating wildly -- even after
the power source is turned off
MICROWAVING WOMBS AT GREENHAM COMMON
- While the mobile microwave weapons currently deployed
in Iraq may or may not lead to lasting harm, rooftop "poppers"
and "domes" left to radiate for days at a time are irradiating
unsuspecting families already coping with illness, wounds, hunger and the
stress of losing homes and loved ones, whose rotting corpses cannot be
buried under the sights of marine snipers.
A preview of what lies in store for long-suffering families in Iraq can
be gleaned from Greenham Common, where the British Army reportedly used
an electromagnetic weapon against 30,000 women who had camped for nearly
two decades around that UK military base to protest the deployment of nuclear-tipped
US cruise missiles.
One day in the summer of 1984, more than 2,000 British troops suddenly
pulled back, leaving the fence unguarded. Peace mom Kim Besley recalls
that as curious women approached the gate, they "started experiencing
odd health effects: swollen tongues, changed heartbeats, immobility, feelings
of terror, pains in the upper body."
Besley found her 30-year-old daughter too ill to stand. Other symptoms
typical of electromagnetic exposure included skin burns, severe headaches,
drowsiness, post-menopausal menstrual bleeding and menstruation at abnormal
times. Besley's daughter's cycle changed to 14 days and took a year to
return to normal.
Two late-term spontaneous miscarriages, impaired speech, and an apparent
circulatory failure prompted the women to begin monitoring for a directed-energy
beam, Using an EMR meter, they measured beams sweeping their camp at 100-times
normal background levels.
Another harrowing example involves the sudden illness and cancer deaths
of US embassy staff in Moscow after being deliberately targeted with very
weak pulsed microwaves by Soviet experimenters and fascinated CIA onlookers
running "Project Phoenix" in 1962.
Very Low Frequency (VLF) weapons include the dozens of "poppers"
currently deployed in Iraq, which can be dialed to or "long wave"
frequencies capable of traveling great distances through the ground or
intervening structures. As air force Lt Col. Peter L. Hays, Director of
the Institute for National Security Studies reveals, "Transmission
of long wavelength sound creates biophysical effects; nausea, loss of bowels,
disorientation, vomiting, potential internal organ damage or death may
Hays calls VLF weapons "superior" because their directed energy
beams do not lose their hurtful properties when traveling through air to
tissue. A French weapon radiating at 7 hertz "made the people in range
sick for hours."
GI's "DRIVEN NUTS" BY ELECTROMAGENTICS IN IRAQ
- Like so many other American blunders among the ruins
of Babylon, the intended microwave "pacification" of rebellious
neighborhoods is having unintended effects. In actual "field-testing"
in the Sunni Triangle, Hank has learned that the hidden, dome-shaped devices
"are removing inhibitions". Armed individuals, already highly
motivated to kill American forces are reportedly "losing all restraint"
when exposed to the electromagnetic beams.
According to Hank's buddies in Baghdad, the frequency-shifting "poppers"
"are having some remarkable effects on the locals as well as our own
people." But these effects differ. Possibly, Hank surmises, because
Americans come from daily domestic and military environments saturated
with electromagnetic frequencies, while many Iraqis still live without
reliable electricity in places largely free from electromagnetics before
the American invasion.
According to members of Hank's former unit, constant exposure to invisible
emissions from radar and radio rigs -- as well as to their own microwave
weapons -- is backfiring. "Our people are driven nuts," Hank
says. "It makes them stupid for two or three days."
The Desert Storm veteran compared the emotional effects of constant exposure
to military microwaves to a lingering low-pressure weather system that
never goes away. "You feel way down for days at a time," he emphasizes
As a consequence, AWOL rates among "spaced out" US troops are
as high as 15%, Hank reports. For many deserters, it is not cowardice or
conscience that is causing them to absent themselves from duty. "They
are feeling so depressed," Hank explains. "They don't feel good.
So they leave."
According to Hank's front-line buddies, Iraqis exposed to secret beam weapons
"get laid back, confused and mellow, and then blast out in a rage,
as opposed to our folks going on what could only be called a "bender"
and turning into a mean drunk for a while."
Once they wander away from direct electromagnetic-fire, startled GIs come
to their senses. They return to their units, Hank explains, saying, "What
was I thinking?"
The recovery rate among US troops "seems to be about a day or so,
where the locals are not getting over it in less than a week or more on
average," Hank has learned.
It is Hank's hope that his revelations will prompt public debate over the
secret use of electromagnetic weapons in Iraq. But lost in the arguments
over these supposedly "non-lethal" weapons is a much bigger question:
What are Americans doing there?
Whether soldier or civilian at home, it is our imperative duty to stop
supporting those responsible for ongoing "weapons tests" in Iraq.
As electrochemical "beings of light," the strongest electromagnetic
force on Earth is human conscience, acted upon.
- After resigning his US Navy Reserve commission and refusing
to participate in the Vietnam slaughter, William Thomas subsequently served
five months with a three-man environmental emergency response team in the
Gulf during and immediately after Desert Storm. He has written about military
electromagnetics in Scorched Earth and Bringing The War Home, and has documented
other microwave hazards in huis new ebook, "Dialing Our Cells."
