Microwaving Iraq 'Pacifying' Rays Pose New Hazards In Iraq By William
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.
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
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
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

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
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

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.

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
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
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.
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
