I AM AFRICAN
Last week I promised to take readers this week into the world of electromagnetic warfare, and its sister-evil geophysical warfare. So please come with me. We are still figuring out whether Cyclone Idai, with the kind of ferocity and destruction it displayed, could have been an electromagnetic or geophysical warfare event gone awry.
Remember, the United Nations described it as the worst weather-related natural disaster to hit the Southern Hemisphere in all history. This has led some people to say if Idai were actually sired by nature, as nature sires cyclones, it would have been more merciful than the destruction it wrought in Mozambique particularly, and in Zimbabwe and Malawi to a lesser degree.
Let me flash this health warning: What we are dealing with here, in this piece, is no “conspiracy theory” as some people tend to dismiss such stories. I don’t have time to engage in conspiracy theories. I write about real life issues and electromagnetic or geophysical warfare is a real life issue shrouded in secrecy because the puppet masters want it to be so.
So what is electromagnetic warfare? This is a heavy subject so I will break down the terminology to make it easier for all to understand.
Wikipedia defines electromagnetic warfare as: “Any action involving the use of the electromagnetic spectrum or directed energy to control the spectrum, attack an enemy, or impede enemy assaults. The purpose of electronic warfare is to deny the opponent the advantage of, and ensure friendly unimpeded access to, the EM spectrum.”
Lockheed Martin, the weapons systems manufacturer, defines it as: “Electronic Warfare (EW) represents the ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum – signals such as radio, infrared or radar – to sense, protect, and communicate. At the same time, it can be used to deny adversaries the ability to either disrupt or use these signals. EW is divided into three major areas: Electronic attack, electronic protection, electronic support.”
Wikipedia also defines “electromagnetic spectrum” as “the range of frequencies (the spectrum) of electromagnetic radiation and their respective wavelengths and photon energies. The electromagnetic spectrum covers waves with frequencies ranging from below one hertz to above 10 hertz, corresponding to wavelengths from thousands of kilometres down to a fraction of the size of an atomic nucleus.
“This frequency range is divided into separate bands, and the electromagnetic waves within each frequency band are called by different names; beginning at the low frequency (long wavelength) end of the spectrum, these are: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma rays at the high-frequency (short wavelength) end.”
The evil sister
Allied to electromagnetic warfare is geophysical warfare, which is defined by SourceWatch.org as: “The intentional modification of a system of the natural ecology, such as climate and weather, earth systems such as the ionosphere, magnetosphere, tectonic plate system, and/or the triggering of seismic events (earthquakes) to cause intentional physical, economic, and psycho-social, and physical destruction to an intended geophysical target or population location, as part of a strategic or tactical war.”
SourceWatch.org further explains that: “Environmental war, however carried out, is almost always a violation of the 1977 United Nations Treaty against the modification of the environment. Thus, environmental weapons are developed in secret, and acts of environmental war are carried out covertly, as both environmental weapons and war are illegal under international law.
“Environmental war is generally carried out as a strategic deception (psychological operations or psyops). Environmental war weapons systems can include chemtrails, chemical weapons systems (climate and weather modification) and electromagnetic weapons systems (climate and weather modification; seismic warfare).”
In 1996, a New York Times piece on geophysical warfare explained that:
“Over the past decade a new term, geophysical warfare, has begun creeping into discussions of future types of military capability. A rough definition of the concept would be an act or acts of environmental engineering designed to change the flow of air and water in order to damage one side in a conflict and benefit the other.
“The most elementary type of geophysical warfare is short‐term rainmaking with a military objective in view; but published discussion of these possibilities has gone much further. There has been speculation about the possibility of radically altering the climates of particular areas, and even of manipulating the levels of the oceans, for example by melting the Arctic ice cover.
“Geophysical warfare has now left the area of futuristic speculation and science fiction. Revelation that the United States has used rainmaking techniques for military purposes in Indochina has suddenly put this problem on the world’s agenda for international discussion. This is true even though it is uncertain how much success the United States, rain‐promotion efforts have actually had.
“Even those who may feel that dropping rain on an enemy is better than dropping bombs must realise that rainmaking is only the first step. Once accepted as a normal military technique, geophysical warfare may some day be capable of drowning vast continental coastal areas, turning fruitful areas into deserts, and even perhaps ultimately of radically rearranging the entire world climate.
“It is not just enterprises of a military nature that need to be discussed and brought under international control. With man’s increasing powers, the risk becomes steadily greater that projects will be embarked upon whose ultimate impact on the environment may be as destructive for some nations and some peoples as if they had been the intended victims…
“The stated motivations for these and similar imaginative projects are usually praiseworthy and seemingly far distant from military objectives. Yet any major act of environmental engineering carries substantial risks because it is always accompanied by great potential for unintended side effects, for producing unanticipated changes that could harm – even devastate – some areas of the world.”
Did anybody see Cyclone Idai in the above paragraph or in The New York Times article generally? Consider this: “Any major act of environmental engineering carries substantial risks,” says The New York Times, because it is always accompanied by great potential for unintended side effects, for producing unanticipated changes that could harm – even devastate – some areas of the world.” Was Idai an unintended side effect?
In the beginning
Interestingly, electromagnetic warfare was an accidental by-product of the top-secret Manhattan Project that produced the first atomic/nuclear weapons during World War II. Started in 1939 (in fact active between 1939 and 1946) but disbanded in 1947, the Manhattan Project was a military research and development effort led by the USA with the support of the UK and Canada.
When the Project became successful and the first atomic bomb was tested at 5.29 am on 16 July 1945 in what was codenamed “The Trinity Test” (the world’s first detonation of a nuclear weapon in the Jornada del Muerto desert, 35 miles southeast of Socorro in New Mexico, USA), the bomb produced what became known as the “atomic flash”. This flash produced a high electromagnetic pulse energy, which killed most of the electronic instruments in the vicinity that was supposed to measure the intensity of the blast.
As Dr Roger McCarthy, chairman and principal engineer of Exponent Inc, the US-based weapons systems manufacturer, explained in a History Channel documentary: “The electromagnetic pulse effect as a weapon really came to our attention quite accidentally during the early atomic tests. When the first detonations occurred, unprotected electromagnetic equipment – which we had a lot of them then – died. And of course this came to everybody’s attention because a lot of this was instrumentation that was supposed to be recording the effects of the weapon.
“So everybody stood around the destroyed and melted equipment, shaking their heads and saying what happened, especially since there was no wind damage and no overpressure damage, just fried electric equipment.
“Well, it didn’t take long after a few tests for us to realise that a huge electromagnetic pulse is generated when a nuclear weapon explodes. And a huge electromagnetic pulse is very disruptive to unprotected electrical equipment. And then, there was like, ‘oh, there is a weapon effect here’.
“So early in the 50s, at Los Alamos where they were doing this high level nuclear work, they said what about just creating this electromagnetic pulse? And that is when the early work was done on trying to convert explosive energy to electrical energy. And since that time we have had laboratories and an active research programme that has been spending all this time developing electromagnetic energy and high energy microwave weapons.”
And so was born the race for electromagnetic weapons. That was in July 1945 and afterwards.
The tsunami bomb
But one whole year before the Trinity Test, something more frightening and top secret had started far away on the coasts of New Zealand in June 1944, involving the US and New Zealand military that were researching into a tsunami bomb.
Can you believe it? They were researching into how to use high intensity floods or tsunamis as a weapon of war. This research has since developed into another evil race for geophysical weapons, involving two principal athletes – the US and Russia, though China may have them too.
The top-secret tsunami-bomb experiments was codenamed Project Seal. It first came to light in 1999 thanks to a New Zealand documentary filmmaker, Rau Waru (author of Secrets and Treasures: Our Stories Told Through the Objects). He examined military files buried in New Zealand’s national archives and found the shocking material in a box sitting on the desk of an official who was contemplating whether to stop releasing it because the Russians might be considering doing the same thing.
Later in 1999 the files were released by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and are available at Archives New Zealand in Wellington and at the Scripps Institution Of Oceanography Archives in San Diego, California, USA.
“The tsunami bomb,” Wikipedia reports, “was an attempt during World War II to develop a tectonic weapon that could create destructive tsunamis. The project commenced after US Navy Officer E. A. Gibson noticed small waves generated by explosions used to clear coral reefs…
“The weapons concept was deemed feasible, but the weapons themselves were never fully developed or used. A related concept, the ‘bouncing bomb’ was developed and used in World War II, to be dropped into water as a means to destroy German dams and cause loss of industrial capacity and widespread flooding.
“Tests were conducted by Professor Thomas Leech, of the University of Auckland, in Whangaparaoa off the coast of Auckland and off New Caledonia between June 1944 and January 1945. British and US defence chiefs were eager to see it developed, and it was considered potentially as important as the atomic bomb. It was expected to cause massive damage to coastal cities or coastal defences.
“The weapon was only tested using small explosions and never on a full scale. About 3,700 test explosions were conducted over an eight-month period. The tests revealed that a single underwater explosion would not produce a tsunami, but concluded that a line of 2 million kilograms of explosives about 5 miles (8km) off the coast could create a destructive wave.”
Rau Waru who first broke the story says: “Presumably if the atomic bomb had not worked as well as it did, we might have been tsunami-ing people.” He says the initial testing was positive but the project was finally shelved in January 1945. Yet the New Zealand authorities continued to produce reports on the experiments well into the 1950s.
“It was absolutely astonishing,” Waru says. “First that anyone would come up with the idea of developing a weapon of mass destruction based on a tsunami … and also that New Zealand seems to have successfully developed it to the degree that it might have worked.
“If you put it in a James Bond movie it would be viewed as fantasy but it was a real thing. I only came across it because they were still vetting the report, so there it was sitting on somebody’s desk [at the national archives].”
The bad guys
This is the world we live in today. To be fair, it is not only the Americans and their allies who have experimented and in fact succeeded to produce electromagnetic or geophysical weapons. The Russians have been in it too, and China may now have them also.
In early 1999, Colonel Stanislav Lunev, the highest-ranking Russian military spy to defect to the West, told an American radio host that
Russia wanted to launch a satellite into space, which, after reaching its orbit, would, when prompted from a base station on earth, unfold a giant mirror that would conduct high energy light back to cities on earth to blind people. The American radio host says Lunev told him that Russia had secret geophysical weapons that could cause earthquakes and storms.
In 2011, weeks after the tsunami that devastated Japan in March 2011, the colourful Russian politician and former presidential candidate, Vladimar Zhirinovsky (leader of the LDPR party) claimed that “Russia has [geophysical] weapons to put entire continents to sleep in minutes.”
But the USA is still the number one in these evil weapons. In an October 2018 article, Fred Bucks, a former US military interpreter who now writes for the Canada-based media group, Global Research, revealed that the US “military has the capability to cause a tsunami and likely to cause earthquakes and hurricanes as well … If the military secretly developed a weapon which could cause a tsunami [75 years] ago, what kind of advanced deadly weapons might be available now?”, Bucks asked adding:
“Of course disasters like [Cyclone Idai] happen regularly on a natural basis yet if you begin to research, there is some high strangeness around some of these disasters. The evidence is inconclusive, yet with the known and unknown major destructive capabilities of [electromagnetic and geophysical] weapons, serious questions remain.”
Next week, we shall continue our journey into the secret world of electromagnetic and geophysical warfare.
