The mainstream media (NYT) is nipping around the edge of the
electromagnetic weapons topic by talking about the "E-bomb"
and "directed energy weapons" but the writer appears to have
no knowledge of the scalar electromagnetic interferometers.
One has to decipher a bit in this type of story. The clue to look
for is does the author make a distinction between
"transverse" EM energy "longitudinal" EM energy.
In the above story the author makes no such distinction, so we can
assume he is talking about transverse EM weapons only.
To have appreciable effect using transverse EM one has to fairly
bludgeon the target like hitting an ant with a sledgehammer. With
longitudinal waves the energy is merely triggered to emerge from the
local vacuum at the point of the target. Thus a modest triggering
signal can cause a huge effect from a distant control booth, without
having to fuss around with cruise missile delivery and all that. The
scalar interferometer is clearly superior to the E-bomb, in many
different ways: area of target, speed (instant), perfect aim, amount
of energy available, ease of use, etc.
"Think invisible lasers, using high-powered microwaves and
other sorts of radiation rather than the pulses of visible light
common in science fiction. These new systems, which have been under
development in countries including Britain, China, Russia and the
United States for at least a decade, are not designed to kill people.
Conventional bombs, guns and artillery can take care of that.
"Rather, most of the directed-energy systems are meant to kill
electronics, to disrupt or destroy the digital devices that control
the information lifeblood of modern societies and modern military
forces. By contrast, traditional jamming equipment blocks
communications gear from functioning but does not actually damage the
"If there is a war in Iraq, there is no question in my mind
that we will see the use of both directed-energy and radio-frequency
weaponry,'' said John Arquilla, a professor of defense analysis at the
Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif..." - SETH SCHIESEL
He then goes on to point out the U.S. is the most vulnerable nation
regarding an attack on computers and electronics. Our society would
collapse in chaos without its electronic devices. People could not get
their money out of the bank!
"That is why, like the genie escaping its bottle, directed
energy may harbor danger for the United States itself, not just for
its adversaries. With its increasing reliance on digital
communications and information systems, the United States is perhaps
the most vulnerable potential target for directed-energy devices,
military experts say." - SETH SCHIESEL
Sheisel's article would have been greatly improved if he could have
brought up the topic of the scalar electromagnetic weapons, but either
he is still uninformed about them or the great New York Times has a
blanket taboo out on reporting about this vitally important issue.
"The information is out there," but the NYT is not likely to
report on it.
Schiesel throws another clue he is only talking about the use of
transverse (ordinary) electromagnetic waves when he describes the
effects on personnel.
"And while directed-energy weapons are not generally meant to
kill people, there are certainly antipersonnel applications. In
addition to the anti-electronics weapons, other directed-energy
systems under development are meant to use microwaves to make people
feel pain in the outer layer of the skin without generally causing
physical damage. That pain is intended to inspire an instinct to
First clue is he says "microwaves." Microwaves are in our
ordinary spectrum of tranverse EM waves. The second clue is the
relatively minor effects he describes. Anyone familiar with the new
scalar weapons knows there is an incredible range of effects from
mind-control, to many physical body effects, right on up to instant
death. So the skin effect he describes is from transverse EM only, the
hitting of the ant with a sledge hammer, an entire field of experiment
which is quickly abandoned once the scalar effects are discovered.
So the NYT is bringing up the topic of electromagnetic weapons and
leaving out the most important information, the discovery of
longitudinal EM waves.
The important question I get from reading this article is "Is
the U.S. really that far behind the Russians and the Chinese in the
development of scalar weapons? Does the U.S. possess scalar wave
interferometers by now? Never mind the E-bomb, does the U.S. intend to
use scalar interferometers in the war on Iraq, or are we so far behind
that the best we have is the clumsy, awkward and inefficient E-bomb?
Or is it just another case of the control of the New York Times by
the secrecy directives of the U.S. Secret Agencies?
