Weapons that attack by waves and leave no traces will decide armed conflicts after the nuclear age.
The development of psychotronic weapons - wave devices controlling thoughts, feelings and behaviour of human beings - has remained hidden for over five decades. There is a disproportionate amount of speculative information about those weapons and many think it is pure science fiction. But recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin endorsed his psychotronic weapons program, suggesting that their development has not been stopped and that Russia is preparing for future wars. It's hard to believe that the other powers do not.
Together with his Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov Putin said that "the military capability of a country in space or information countermeasures, especially in cyberspace, will play a great, if not decisive, role in determining the nature of an armed conflict. In the more distant future, weapons systems based on new principles (beam, geophysical, wave, genetic, psychophysical and other technology) will be developed. All this will, in addition to nuclear weapons, provide entirely new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals".
The president also said that these weapons will be comparable in effect to nuclear weapons, but "will be more acceptable in terms of military and political ideology" http://premier.gov.ru/eng/events/news/18185/. Serdyukov added that Moscow will create an advanced military research agency similar to the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The announcement was made in the proposals for weapons to be included in the next military investment program of the Russian state. Putin had earlier announced that it would spend U.S. $ 770,000 million in military development for a decade (AFP).
The scientific curiosity of Russians on this technology is not new. Mojmir Babacek, a Czech author known for his research into psychotronic weapons and founder of the International Movement Against Manipulation of Central Nervous System, tells El Spectador that since 1920 Russia had began to investigate phenomena such as telepathy, telekinesis and clairvoyance, and there had been during the 60's and 70's a real arms race between Russia and the U.S. in this area. The goal was to find the physical phenomena that govern psychic phenomena. Russian scientists talked about torsion fields and the Americans about scalar fields. "The concepts differ substantially and sound like scientific mystifications, which supports the suspicions that physical principles of psychic phenomena were discovered, but the discoveries are hidden from the public." says Babacek.
John Hall, a biologist and physician who treats alleged victims of mind control and is the author of A New Breed: Satellite Terrorism in America, told El Spectador that psychotronic weapons send waves in the electromagnetic spectrum to the human nervous system to alter behavior, thought, perception, and the musculoskeletal system. "Victims see holograms, hear voices, have involuntary muscle movements and headaches, among others."
How would those weapons be used in the next war? "When you can use a system such as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), developed by the U.S. which largely increases the emitted energy absorbing additional energy in the ionosphere, you can target large areas on the Earth's surface. By pulsing the radiation in frequencies that control the activity of human heart, one could kill entire armies stopping the heartbeat of soldiers", replies Babacek.
Why did Putin say that these weapons would be more acceptable in the military and political ideology? For the Czech author, those who would use them might be less “culpable” because the use of psychotronic weapons leaves no radioactivity, as it happens with nuclear weapons. Furthermore, if the technology is not used to kill enemies, but to make them "incapable of fighting, by overheating their bodies, knocking them unconscious, making them sick by causing them pain in their internal organs or causing them epileptic seizures, the powers which would use that technology may argue that they are conducting a humane warfare. But the use of this technology would turn them into totalitarian powers of a new type and the concept of human freedom would disappear from history”.
Another aspect of a psychotronic war, says Hall, is that there is no known protection that works consistently against these weapons. "The obvious goal is to control a global population without using violence."
At least not violence in the form of bullets, missiles and bombs, as we know it nowadays.
Governments tend to deny that they are in possession of psychotronic weapons claiming only that those weapons are under development. Babacek, among a vast number of authors, scientists, researchers and bloggers, says that from the scientific literature and information leaks, the existence of such weapons is obvious, though it is impossible to prove whether they have been used.
In the U.S. a project Pandora of the Walter Reed Army Institute and DARPA, with its subprogram Bizarre was published. Richard Cesaro, director of Darpa for the project Pandora, stated the following about his goals: "To achieve a technological leap in the warfare we must go beyond bombs and gain control of the enemies’ minds." The HAARP program is located in Alaska and was funded by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and DARPA. Although its official purpose is to study the ionosphere and to further improve the radio communications and surveillance systems, many blame this project for using its energy to cause natural disasters.
Published in the USA was as well an investigation conducted by the U.S. navy and the Washington Post has published a project of the U.S. Air Force, without naming it. The newspaper said “scientists were able to transmit phrases into the heads of human subjects, albeit with marginal intelligibility”.
In the Soviet Union, says Babacek, research was conducted by the Center Vent, funded and controlled by the Soviet Defense Department. The centre directed work in 26 other Soviet laboratories.
There are countless cases in which psychotronic weapons have allegedly been used. According to Russian newspapers, there was an attempt to use "psychotronic generators" during the coup against Gorbachev, but their application failed. The president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, was an alleged victim of a microwave electron bombardment while besieged in the Brazilian Embassy in Honduras. The son of Saddam Hussein wrote in an Iraqi newspaper that Americans tried to form clots in his father’s blood by electromagnetic radiation. According to the U.S. Army newspaper, Israel has used this technology against Palestinians.
Alexander von Hahn, an independent researcher, told El Spectador that there is no evidence that these weapons have been used recently in Russia. However, Von Hahn spoke with the lawyer, former student of the Russian Academy of Border Defense and opposition leader, Yury Shulipa, who said that on" December 21 and December 25, 2011, the days of the first and second anti-Putin demonstrations in Moscow, the police interrupted the functioning of the cell phones of those who participated in the peaceful march". Shulipa said he could not "exclude use of psychotropic or psychotronic weapons, at least on an experimental basis" against protesters or against opposition leaders individually, although it is impossible to obtain factual evidence that this actually happened.
None of the above cases has been sufficiently proved. One of the biggest challenges is that psychotronic weapons leave no evidence to prove somebody guilty. Cheryl Welsh, Mind Justice portal director, told this newspaper that the fact that the weapons "are operated by remote control and do not leave a trail of bullet or evidence" makes their use too complicated to be detected. This also means that those who claim to be victims of these technologies are usually classified as mentally ill. Hall says that most victims are coming from the USA and that the advances of this country in the area are considerable. "The most puzzling is the ability to communicate with the victims through synthetic telepathy that only they can hear. It is impossible for them (the victims) to convince anybody of the torture they are subjected to. Obviously, the weapons system is designed to mimic symptoms of common diseases, schizophrenia or hallucinations."
Though Putin’ psychotronic weapons are designed for the more distant future, the international community has debated the issue for several decades. In 1979 the Soviet Union representative on the Committee on Disarmament of the UN warned in an article that the harmful effects of RF radiation on organs like the heart, brain and central nervous system should be established as a reality. That same year the Soviet Union sent the Committee on Disarmament a list that included as potential weapons of mass destruction radiological weapons (using radioactive materials), the particle beam, the infrasound weapons, which use acoustic radiation, and electromagnetic radiation, which operates with radio frequencies.
Welsh said that the international community has tried to agree on legislation to regulate the use and production of psychotronic weapons and "although Western countries agree that the issue should be supervised, they have taken different perspectives and some claim that new developments by scientists must be treated individually since they have a potential use in the arms race."
In 1999 the European Parliament called “for an international convention and global ban on all research and development, whether civilian or military, which seeks to apply knowledge of the chemical, electrical, sound vibration or other functioning of the human brain to the development of weapons which might enable any form of manipulation of human beings, including a ban on any actual or possible deployment of such systems“.
So far, however, there is no global consensus and Russia is the first to officially announce that it prepares its psychotronic arsenal for the future.
Putin targets foes with 'zombie' gun which attack victims' central nervous system
Could be used against Russia's enemies and perhaps its own dissidents

Mind-bending `psychotronic' guns that can effectively turn people into zombies have been given the go-ahead by Russian president Vladimir Putin.
The futuristic weapons – which will attack the central nervous system of their victims – are being developed by the country's scientists. They could be used against Russia's enemies and, perhaps, its own dissidents by the end of the decade. Fire: Putin, seen using a traditional pistol, has new weapons in his sights Sources in Moscow say Mr Putin has described the guns, which use electromagnetic radiation like that found in microwave ovens, as `entirely new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals'.

Mr. Putin added: `Such high-tech weapons systems will be comparable in effect to nuclear weapons, but will be more acceptable in terms of political and military ideology.' Plans to introduce the super- weapons were announced quietly last week by Russian defence minister Anatoly Serdyukov, fulfilling a little-noticed election campaign pledge by president-elect Putin. Mr Serdyukov said: `The development of weaponry based on new physics principles – direct-energy weapons, geophysical weapons, wave-energy weapons, genetic weapons, psychotronic weapons, and so on – is part of the state arms procurement programme for 2011-2020.'
Specific proposals on developing the weapons are due to be drawn up before December by a new Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency. Research into electromagnetic weapons has been secretly carried out in the US and Russia since the Fifties. But now it appears Mr Putin has stolen a march on the Americans. Precise details of the Russian gun have not been revealed. However, previous research has shown that low-frequency waves or beams can affect brain cells, alter psychological states and make it possible to transmit suggestions and commands directly into someone's thought processes. High doses of microwaves can damage the functioning of internal organs, control behaviour or even drive victims to suicide. Anatoly Tsyganok, head of the Military Forecasting Centre in Moscow, said: `This is a highly serious weapon. `When it was used for dispersing a crowd and it was focused on a man, his body temperature went up immediately as if he was thrown into a hot frying pan.
Still, we know very little about this weapon and even Special Forces guys can hardly cope with it.'
The long-term effects are not known, but two years ago a former major in the Russian foreign intelligence agency, the GRU, died in Scotland after making claims about such a weapons programme to MI6. Sergei Serykh, 43, claimed he was a victim of weapons which he said were many times more powerful than in the Matrix films'. Mr. Serykh died after falling from a Glasgow tower block with his wife and stepson in March 2010. While his death was assumed to be suicide, his family fear there was foul play. Last night the Ministry of Defence declined to comment.
