Australian researcher Glen Krawczyk examines the new virtual battlefield of the mind. By Glen Krawczyk
In 1994, the strategic Studies Institute (SSI) of the US Army War College (Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania) produced a paper entitled, "The Revolution in Military Affairs and Conflict Short of War". in the paper, the authors propose that, "Many American strategic thinkers believe that we are in the beginning stages of a [sic] historical revolution in military affairs (RMA). This will not only change the nature of warfare, but also alter the global geopolitical balance."
This revolution is not only strategic. It is also fundamentally technological. "Sensor technology, robotics, nonlethal weapons, and intelligence meshes will be used in combatting terrorism, countering narcotrafficking, and peace operations. These technologies, along with simulator training and unmanned aerial vehicles, will also be useful in insurgency and counterinsurgency."
The authors of the SSI paper recommend ongoing research, analysis and debate on a number of topics including, "Technology designed specifically for conflict short of war, especially psychological, biological, and defensive technology." They also suggest that, as "large numbers of Americans may find themselves in areas of instability and conflict", such individuals might benefit from being "equipped with an electronic individual position locator device (IPLD). The device, derived from the electronic bracelet used to control some criminal offenders or parolees, would continuously inform a central data bank of the individuals' locations. Eventually such a device could be permanently implanted under the skin..."
The paper also openly declares that, "Behavior modification is a key component of peace enforcement," and that "Soft kill" systems can play a key role." Furthermore, with regard to counterinsurgency, "Greatly improved intelligence gathering and fusion is a primary comonent of the RMA, and proposed information warfare capabilities might be ideally suited for helping develop desired emotions, attitudes or behavior."
The authors recognize that, "The use of new technology may also run counter to basic American vlaues", and that, "Deception, while frequently of great military or political value, is thought of as somehow 'un-American."
Due to this fact, and also that the majority of Americans may find the use of many of the emerging technologies "morally difficult", the authors conclude that the military might consider that "American vlaues and attitudes thus form significant constraints on full use of emerging technology, at least in anything short of a perceived war for national survival."
The central premise of the paper is that: "In its purest sense, revolution brings change that is permanent, fundamental, and rapid. The basic premise of the revolution in military affairs (RMA) is simple: throughout history, warfare usually developed in an evolutionary fashion, but occasionally ideas and inventions combined to propel dramatic and decisive change. This not only affected the application of military force, but often altered the geopolitical balance in favor of those who mastered the new form of warfare. The stakes of military revolution are thus immense..."
With such "immense" stakes, might the military have felt the need to covertly foster revolution in order to bring about the change necessary to make the use of new weaapons and technologies less "morally difficult" for the American people? The paper leaves the reader in little doubt that the answer to this question is resolutely affirmative, for the paper declares: "Overcoming these constraints to make a RMA in conflict short of war would require fundamental changes in the United States--an ethical and political revolution may be necessary to make a military revolution."
The authors then declare that, rather than being limited by "constraints and countermeasures", "there is another alternative: we could deliberately engineer a comprehensive revolution, seeking utter transformation rather than simply an expeditious use of new technology."
Have the opening moves of such a revolution already been played? Is the American national security establishment already at war with its own citizens (and those of other "civilized" nations) in order to coerce them to accept the formerly unacceptable by means of "the manipulation of images, beliefs, attitudes, and perceptions", "that is, psychological warfare? Once again, the reader is left with little doubt that the answer to this question is a resolute YES.
The authors write that to achieve a Revolution in Military Affairs", the Army must fully recognize that psychological technology is of much greater improtance than strike technology: "Ways must be found to use emerging technology, including advanced artificial intelligence and information dissemination systems, to help military strategists develop, implement, and continually improve methods of influencing opinion, mobilizing public support, and sometimes demobilizing it.
The Association of National Security Alumni is a Maryland-based Organization composed primarily of former US national security establishment emloyees who oppose the use of covert operations. The Association's letterhead declares their credo: "...Covert actions are counterproductive and damaging to the national interest of the United States. They are inimical to the operations of an effective national intelligence system and corruptive of civil liberties, including the functioning of the judiciary and a free press. Most importantly, they contradict the principles of democracy, national seelf-determination and international law to which the United States is publicly committed."
In 1992, an Association sub-group known as the Electronic Surveillance Project published a preliminary investigative report, entitled "Microwave Harassment & Mind-Control Experimentation", which detailed the covert deployment and testing of emerging behavior-modifying directed-energy technologies on US citizens against whom the United States Government has no legitimate legal or moral claim. The initial study investigated the claims of 12 alleged victims of covert harassment and experimentation. By mid-1993 the Association had been contacted by approximately 72 victims, and at the time of this writing h as been approached by over 200 such individuals."
In a 1993 supplement to the original report, written by Julianne McKinney, Director of the Electronic Surveillance Project and author of the initial report, it states: "While the majority of these 'experimentees' reside in the United States, a number of virtually identical complaints have also been received from England, Canada, and Australia. It would appear that these activities are also ongoing on the European continent, and in the former Soviet Union.
Connections between this global pattern of activity and the objectives of the so-called New World Order remain to be determined. "The categories of types of complaints being received by this Project have also changed since publication of this report. Survivors of certain satanic cults (alleged to protect the interests of governemtn and military "political satanists" in this country), former Vietnam-era "programmed assassins", prison inmates, and so-called "UFO abductees" are now reporting an array of experiences (and symptoms) which are remarkably similar to those addressed in this report. Experimental drugs, induced auditory input, vicious overt harassment, attempted psychiatric discrediting (unless the experimentee dutifully claims to be a UFO abductee), and an extremely painful array of externally-induced symptoms are included in this shared panoply of experiences."
McKinney later states: "It has been suggested that the long-term objective of all this experimentation is to develop a system by which all (surviving) citizens of this country may be monitored and tracked by a sophisticated, perhaps satellite-based cybernetics system. Certainly some of the research being dedicated to "mapping of the brain" shows this potential.
We are in receipt of preliminary information which points to magnetic resonance imaging as being critical to this process." Upon reading the Strategic Studies Institute paper, "The Revolution in Military Affairs and Conflict Short of War", McKinney wrote to the authors, Steven Metz, Ph.D., and LTC James Kievit, to critique its content. In the letter, McKinney writes:
"First, I noticed a rather curious omission in your paper; namely, the impact of a 'revolutionized' military upon the rights of US citizens as they might be inferred to exist under Article IX of the United States Constitution. True, you have expressed some concern about potential "ethics" violations resulting from unconstrained evolutionary or revolutionary processes; however, I see no reference anywhere in your paper to the military's primary responsibility in upholding, protecting and defending the U.S. Constitution."
Armed with information gathered during investigations by the Electronic Surveillance Project, as well as the testimony of the individuals whose cases the Project has studied, McIinney suggests in her letter that the "recipe" for a successful "revolution in military affairs" (RMA) was, in fact, considered some 30 years ago and may presently consist of the following ingredients:
"Satanic Cults; UFO Cults, Directed-Energy Technologies; Neurocybernetics/Psychotechnologies; Biotechnologies/Experimental Drugs; Multinational Government Contractors and Subsidiaries; Investment Portfolios and Other Financial Inducements; Imported East Bloc Mercenaries and Military Equipment; Imported Foreign National Scientists; A Controlled and Compliant Media; Decentralized US Government Control; An Induced Crime Wave.
Julianne McKinney h erslef is a former US Army intelligence officer who apparently ran operatives out of Berlin. Bearing this in mind, it is perhaps reasonable to assume that she would have a fair understanding of the typical mindset of members of the national security establishment, and that her list of "ingredients" may therefore be based on something more than idle and uninformed speculation. One "experimentee" from whom this author recently received correspondence refers to Ms. McKinney's assessments as "impeccable military "know-how".
McKinney wryly (and accusingly) suggests in her missive to Metz and Kievit of the SSI that the above ingredients might result in their desired "revolution in military affairs" if combined in the follwoing manner."
"Instructions: "I, Raise one or two generations of children under the auspices of government-approved satanic cults, such as Col. (USA Ret.) Michael Aquino's Temple of Set. Violent sexual, physical and psychological abuse of these children over a period of 15 years will produce generations of dissociative automatons who will comply with instructions in obedient, un questioning fashion. Their required adherence to cult tenets precludes any consideration of laws governing U.S. society, generally. Cult programmed "graduates", among other things will be expected to participate in contrived UFO abduction scenarios.
"2. Create a global UFO cult, which will involve the abduction of citizens so as to foster an Illusion that this earth is facing an extraterrestrial invasion. UFO abductees-of-preference will have an expertise in computer technologies, since that expertise will be required in future technocratic RMA scenarios. Use of experimental drugs, holographic projection capabilities, directed-energy technologies, induced auditory input, experimental aircraft, and special effects costumming and stagecraft, among other things, will be used to persuade abductees of the reality of their circumstances. Official denials regarding these events will employ reverse psychology to ensure that all such denials are taken as official confirmation of an imminent and/or ongoing extraterrestrial invasion. UFO abductees will be persuaded to worship their anticipated extraterrestrial "conquerors" in cult-enforced religious fashion. UFO cult networks will be controlled by US Intelligence to limit infiltration and ensure that dissidents do not disrupt UFO cult long-term agendas. Uncontrollable dissidents will be assassinated, preferably by directed-energy means. Dissociative satanic cult graduates will handle all such executions; i.e., when not actively lending logistical and theatrical support to UFO abduction operations.
"3. Directed-energy surveillance and weapons technologies of ALL types will be used for purposes of spreading fear and confusion in the population at large(under deniable circumstances for eliminating persons deemed "adversarial" to U.S. national security interests; and for spotting, assessing and manipulating potential recruits to RMA causes.
"4. (NOTE!!) Neurocybernetics and other psychotechnoolgies will be used to sow confusion and hypochondria in the population at large. The symptoms and effects produced by these and other directed-energy technologies will parallel the effects produced by various microbes, viruses and chemical imbalances, thus compelling a large segment of society to seek medical intervention which, in turn, will be a basis for their being used for medical experimentation under "voluntary" circumstances. Psychiatrists and psychologists will play an important role in these experiments, particularly where denying the efficacy of neurocybernetics/psychotechnologics is concerned. Citizens complaining of "hearing voices" will be used as a basis for (generously) government-funded, schizophrenic-related brain research, since comprehension and control of the human brain is critical to the sustained success of any long-term RMA. (Total control of the human mind may have to wait another century or so.) Satanic cult graduates, drug dealers, gang members recruited off the streets, and foreign nationals will be housed at black-funded government expense (under comparatively luxurious circumstances) and trained in the use of these directed-energy technologies. (Technicians who may be obliged to drive targeted U.S. citizens insane or to their deaths do not need to be burdened by considerations of morality, ethics or the U.S. Constitution.)...
"5. Mix biotechnologies and experimental drugs generously throughout all of these ingredients. The unsuspecting U.S. citizen of today may be the cyborg soldier of tomorrow.
"6. Multinational corporations under conteract to the U.S. Government play a very important role in this recepe--particularly those engaged in the development of directed-energy surveillance and weapons technologies, and those in the business of telecommunications. Corporations and their subsidiaries will have the primary responsibility of experimenting on U.S. citizens with directed-energy technologies under appropriately-deniable circumstances, and of maintaining all records concerning the results of that experimentation. Corporations will also systematically install surveillance and directed-energy targeting systems in government and other office buildings, in public establishments, in educational institutions, in apartment buildings, in neighborhoods, on streets and highways, and in prisons, jails and psychiatric institutions. The public's attention will not be drawn to the antenna arrays and other ground-based devices and wiring configurations being used for this purpose. The Ground Positioning Satellite (GPS) system [sic] will play an important part in these activities, with the expense to be sustained by government-funded contrac tors. Centralized control of these surveillance and targeting systems will be maintained in appropriately deployed bunkers, at an expense to be assumed by black-funded corporate contractors. Contractors may toy with these systems on an occasional basis, such as by bring down an airliner or two for test purposes (such as, recently, near Pittsburg); by inducing occasional targets of surveillance to erupt into acts of violence involving mass murder, and by assassinating occasional sports and public figures who exceed agreed-upon standards of mediocrity. However, no concerted large-scale effort is permitted until the ingredients of this recipe have obtained a "proper mix."
"7. Investment portfolios and other financial inducements are critical to the lon-term success of this pending RMA. There is much money to be had in the development of directed-energy systems and biotechnologies. Lucrative investment portfolios have a way of keeping Members of Congress, owners of the aMajor Media and other public officials silent. (Satanic cult "kiddies" trained as porn stars serve an equally useful purpose, as do demonstrations of the effectiveness of directed-energy technologies on more obstreperous types; however, greed has long been recognized as the primary mover and shaker in matters covert and should be exploited accordingly.) Financial inducements otherwise have a way of buying the continued cooperation of all persons participating in or directly knowledgeable of the ingredients in this recipe.
"8. Out -of-work East Bloc military personnel and their vehicles and other equipment will be brought into this country under the guise of a "UN" logo, to be housed under comparatively luxurious circumstances at black-funded corporate expense, for specialized urban/LIC [low-intensity conflict] training under otherwise deniable DoD auspices. Use of a UN logo on incoming vehicles and uniforms is to spread confusion and fear in the populace at large, this facilitating efforts by this government at eliminating that instition as a potentially effective tool for peaceful change. Imported East Bloc soldiers will be paid as mercenaries for employment in this country only when a proper mix of this recipe's ingredients has been obtained..
"9. Foreign national scientists, predominantly from the Far and Near East and from Germany and Russia, will be brought into this country to participate in such activities as brain and biophysics research as they pertain to the further development of neurocybernetics and other directed energy technologies. Foreign national scientists, unlike most Americans, are not burdened by early indoctrination concerning human rights vis-a-vis lethal forms of involuntary human experimentation. Foreign national scientists have also demonstrated a greater capacity for imaginative (and obedient) scientific research than exists indigenously in this country. Their brains must be picked.
"10. A controlled and compliant media is critical to sustained deniability in this evolutionary process. The media will ignore complaints from U.S. citizens regarding growing evidence of police-state actions in this country, while concurrently lauding the military's advanced technologies as being the gentle supplement to existing conventional weapons systems. The media will also ensure that the public's attention is kept diverted from more serious issues and, instead, that it is focused on hyped-up sleaze events, such as The kneecapping of Nancy Kerrigan, OJ Simpson's problems, with Satanic Cult Murders, The Bobbing of Bobbitt, etc., etc.
When pondering the national security imlications of an Amy Fischer, the public is not likely to notice the antenna arrays sprining up around this country like mushrooms, the inducing of "sick" offices s buildings and public establishments by directed-energy means on an ever-widening basis, or other similar indicators of an evolving RMA.
"11. Decentralized government control-a panacea currently being sought by a befuddled American public to relieve their (contrived) economic woes-- is one means by which FCC monitoring of communications frequencies might ultimately result in an untimely disclosure that those frequencies are being used to facilitate implementation of a successful RMA and should therefore be squelched.
Decentralization will be employed selectively and with much diverting Congressional fanfare. Law enforcement agencies will be subjected to greater centralized control, as will those agencies and institutions such as the FDA which are currently engged in biomedical research. With the help of a compliant media, the centralization of these latter types of agencies will elude public attention.
"12. Crime in this country will be induced. The sales of illegal drugs and weapons reap profits which help fund the foregoing. This activity is the preferred alternative to increased taxes, since tax increases tend to alienate a public which already has doubts about where its money is going. Drug dealers will be protected, since they play an important role in this recipe. Wide-spread addiction to illegal drugs and and drug-sale profits will serve to eliminate and neutralize a large (parasitic) segment of society which might otherwise maie undue demands for a "piece of the American Pie" (employment, education, etc.). Drug addiction fosters a certain degree of crime; however, to ensure that the public comprehends the need for martinet laws, expanded law enforcement capabilities and greater numbers of prisons, crimes of a sensational nature will be induced on a periodic basis which, with the help of the media, will lead to the public's voluntarily agreeing to sacrifice its privacy for safety. Neurocybernetics, psychotechnologies, biochemicals and directed-enerbgy weapons and surveillance systems will be used to induce acts of violence, ranging from simple one-time mass murders (such as in post offices and on subway systems) to long-term serial killings involving cannibalism and other gruesome deeds. Rape and child molestation will be facilitated by means of directed-energy (radar) targeting of reproductive organs.
The perpetrators of these crimes, by claiming to hear "voices" and to be the targets of radio-frequency harassment, will sertve two distinct purposes; viz., (1) they will enhance official deniability, since the public is not yet prepared to believe their claims of mind-control experimentation; and (2) they will hasten the public's abandoning of privacy for the sake of safety. Prison inmates will be routinely targeted for experimentation.
Those sociopathic and psychopathic prisoners who show the greaatest potential for future social disruption will be the most likely to be paroled or to be allowed to escape before we proceed with Step 13, below.
"13. Mix the foregoing ingredients in calculated fashion until the order is given (in or around the late 1990s) to commence with, total chaos. On that day, the order will be given to activate ALL directed-energy systems at maximum amplitudes, ie., in office buildings, private residences, on the streets and highways, in psychiatric wards, in prison and jail systems, and in public establishments. Satanic cult members, who, until now, have been held in relative abeyance, will be given the order to concurrently run rampant for purposes of raping and butchering US citizens a la Rwanda [ssic] while the latter are preoccupied with trying to comprehend their extreme throes of pain, radio frequency burns and rupturing internal organs. Satanic cult members will be aided in this process by escaped prison inmates and psychiatric patients who, on the day in question, will find that the doors in their detention facilities are no longer locked.
Once this (relatively low-level) chaos has commenced, all previously regulated communications frequiencies will be overridden by a single transmission coming from an underground bunker; specifically, the voice of an "extraterrestrial" announcing that this country has been invaded from outer space. TVx and radios which are not operating at the time will be activated by means of technologies recently adopted for "national emergency' purposes." Viewers of TVs will be addressed by a person garbed in speicial-effects extraterrestrieal costuming and make-up.
The average US citizen, being gullible in cases involving "War of the Worlds" scenarios and having no knowledge of the effects produced by amplified directed-energy systems, will firmly believe that an extraterrestrial invasion is underway. UFO cultists, persuaded that their equivalent of God had arrived, will rush to their terminals and assigned directed-energy emitters (on which they have been systematically trained), to assist the "invaders" in this takeover (while saving their own necks). Imported East Bloc mercenaries will also be set loose upon the terrorized public to wreak their own uniquely brutal brand of havoc.
"14. Now comes your RMA. The DoD will intervene to put an end to the carnage merely hinted at under Step 13, above. It is here the Army will be brought into the process. Being of the opinion that upholding and defending the U.S. Constitution is his or her first priority, the average U.S. Army soldier will willingly oand obediently obey any order to intervene, particularly if the order is given in the context of a posse comitatus. Simply put, the military will be induced to take over this government in unsuspecting fashion, for purposes of trying to restore order to circumstances which evolved over the past 30 years under their very noses. Uncorrupted law enforcement officers will take part in this activity just as enthusiastically as the military, in the belief that their services are needed to restore law and order.
U.S. citizens who are currently tagged as "dissident" will be re-tagged "terrorist" for removal to the concentration camps which are rumored [to] be under construction in this country, guarded by government-contracted security firms such as Wackenhut [sic]. The average soldier, having no basis for disbelief, will readily participate in these roundups. Because the U.S. military has demonstrated a remarkable inability to handle concentration camps on a long-term basis, particularly when disruptive elements are housed in the detainee population (ex: GTuantanamo and Florida), executions of detainees will commence. From then on,...it doesn't really matter does it? The revolution is underway."
Outrageous, paranoid, totally farfetched and unsubstantiated extremist conspiracy theory-or is it? After all, how many Rwandans were massacred today? how many more innocent civilians died in Chechnya? How many drive-by shootings took place on the streets? How many people died in the latest "terrorist" bombing?
