Dear
friends,


Few
people are familiar with the important military and police term
"non-lethal weapons." Although referred to as non-lethal — and indeed
used for non-lethal purposes to control both civilians and soldiers —
these sophisticated weapons technologies can also be quite deadly.
Below are highly revealing one-paragraph excerpts of 12 engaging
articles on non-lethal weapons from the major media.
Why does the
media give so little attention to these disturbing new weapons which
raise serious ethical questions? Links are provided below to the full
articles on their major media websites. If any link should fail to
function, click
here. By choosing to educate ourselves on these important issues and
to spread the
word,
we can and will build
a
brighter future.

With
best wishes,

Burks for PEERS and the WantToKnow.info Team





Tech Watch: Forecasting Pain

2006-12-01, Popular
Mechanics


http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/military_law/4202262.html
No
longer a gleam in the Pentagon's eye, ray guns — or radiofrequency (RF)
weapons, to be exact — officially have arrived.
As troops are
increasingly forced to serve as an ad hoc police force, nonlethal weapons
have become a priority for the military. The Department of Defense is
currently testing the Active Denial System (ADS), which fires
pain-inducing beams of 95-GHz radio waves, for deployment on ground
vehicles. This surface heating doesn't actually burn the target, but is
painful enough to force a retreat. While the military continues to
investigate the safety of RF-based weapons, defense contractor Raytheon
has released Silent Guardian, a stripped-down version of the ADS,
marketed
to law enforcement and security providers as well as to the military.
Using
a joystick and a targeting screen, operators can induce pain from over
250
yards away, as opposed to more than 500 yards with the ADS. Unlike its
longer-ranged counterpart, Silent Guardian is available now. As
futuristic
— and frightening — as the ADS "pain ray" sounds, the Air Force Office of
Scientific Research is funding an even more ambitious use of RF energy.
Researchers at the University of Nevada are investigating the feasibility
of a method that would immobilize targets without causing pain. Rather
than heating the subject's skin, this approach would use microwaves at
0.75 to 6 GHz to affect skeletal muscle contractions. This project is
still in the beginning stages. The ADS, on the other hand, is already a
painful reality.

Unusual Forms of Sound

2004-08-25, ABC News
http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=99472

Outside
the [Republican national] convention hall, New York City police plan to
control protesters using a device that directs sound for up to 1,500 feet
in a spotlight-like beam. Meanwhile, a display of former Republican
presidents inside the hall will feature campaign speeches that are
funneled to listeners through highly focused audio beams. Both
technologies feature unprecedented manipulation of sound, but for very
different purposes. And while both technologies have unique, "gee-whiz"
factors, some remain uneasy with the idea of using sound to control
crowds. When in weapon mode, LRAD blasts a tightly controlled
stream of caustic sound that can be turned up to high enough levels to
trigger nausea or possibly fainting. LRAD ... has been used by the U.S.
military in Iraq and at sea as a non-lethal force.
In these
settings, operators can use the device not only to convey orders, but
also
as a weapon. In tests, police have shown how they can convey orders in a
normal voice to someone as far as four blocks away. The sound beam is
even
equipped with a viewfinder so the operator can precisely target the audio
by finding a person in cross hairs. Rather than using pure volume to
throw
sound far, the LRAD reaches distant ears by focusing the audio beam.
Wherever the beam makes contact with air, the air molecules interact in a
way that isolates the original audible sound. So if you're standing in
front of the ultrasonic sound wave, you can hear the sound. If you're a
few inches away, you hear nothing. Already, some Coca-Cola machines in
Japan are equipped with the technology so passers-by hear the enticing
sound of soda being poured into a glass of ice.





Energy-beam weapons still missing from
action


2005-08-12, MSNBC/Associated
Press

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/8516353
For years,
the U.S. military has explored a new kind of firepower that is
instantaneous, precise and virtually inexhaustible: beams of
electromagnetic energy. "Directed-energy" pulses can be throttled up or
down depending on the situation, much like the phasers on "Star Trek"
could be set to kill or merely stun. Such weapons are now nearing
fruition. The hallmark of all directed-energy weapons is that the target
-- whether a human or a mechanical object -- has no chance to avoid the
shot because it moves at the speed of light. At some frequencies, it can
penetrate walls. "When you're dealing with people whose full intent is to
die, you can't give people a choice of whether to comply," said George
Gibbs, a systems engineer for the Marine Expeditionary Rifle Squad
Program
who oversees directed-energy projects. "What I'm looking for is a way to
shoot everybody, and they're all OK." Among the simplest forms are
inexpensive, handheld lasers that fill people's field of vision, inducing
a temporary blindness to ensure they stop at a checkpoint, for example.
Some of these already are used in Iraq. A separate branch of
directed-energy research involves bigger, badder beams: lasers that could
obliterate targets tens of miles away from ships or planes. Such a strike
would be so surgical that, as some designers put it at a recent
conference
here, the military could plausibly deny responsibility.
The
directed-energy component in the project is the Active Denial System,
developed by Air Force researchers and built by Raytheon Co. It produces
a
millimeter-wavelength burst of energy that penetrates 1/64 of an inch
into
a person's skin, agitating water molecules to produce heat. The sensation
is certain to get people to halt whatever they are doing.





Nonlethal weapons touted for use on
citizens

2006-09-12,
MSNBC/Associated Press

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14806772
Nonlethal
weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American
citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the
battlefield,
the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.
The object is basically
public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions
from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael
Wynne. "If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens,
then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said
Wynne. Nonlethal weapons generally can weaken people if they are hit with
the beam. Some of the weapons can emit short, intense energy pulses that
also can be effective in disabling some electronic devices.

Note:
The government has been developing potentially lethal "non-lethal
weapons"
for decades, as evidenced by released FOIA government documents. Don't

here and the in-depth Washington Post article on
psychological manipulations available immediately below.






When Seeing and Hearing Isn't
Believing


2000-02-28, Washington
Post


http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?pagename=article&node=&contentId=A45...

"Gentlemen! We have called
you
together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States
government." So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W.
Steiner. At least the voice sounds amazingly like him. But it is not
Steiner. It is the result of voice "morphing" technology developed at the
Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. Psychological
operations...PSYOPS, as the military calls it, seek to exploit human
vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations to
pursue
national and battlefield objectives. Covert operators kicked around the
idea of creating a computer-faked videotape of Saddam Hussein crying or
showing other such manly weaknesses, or in some sexually compromising
situation. The nascent plan was for the tapes to be flooded into Iraq and
the Arab world. The tape war never proceeded...but the "strategic" PSYOPS
scheming didn't die. What if the U.S. projected a holographic
image of Allah floating over Baghdad urging the Iraqi people and Army to
rise up against Saddam? According to a military physicist given the task
of looking into the hologram idea, the feasibility had been established
of
projecting large, three-dimensional objects that appeared to float in the
air.
A super secret program was established in 1994 to pursue
the
very technology for PSYOPS application. The "Holographic Projector" is
described in a classified Air Force document as a system to "project
information power from space ... for special operations deception
missions."

'Matador' With a Radio Stops Wired
Bull

1965-05-17, New
York Times

http://select.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=F20817F9395812738DDDAE0994DD4...
The brave
bull bore down on the unarmed "matador" — a scientist who had never faced
a fighting bull. But the charging animal's horns never reached the man
behind the heavy red cape. Moments before that could happen, Dr. Jose M.
R. Delgado, the scientist, pressed a button on a small radio transmitter
in his hand, and the bull braked to a halt. Then, he pressed another
button on the transmitter and the bull obediently turned to the right and
trotted away. The bull was obeying commands from his brain that had been
called forth by electrical stimulation—by the radio signals—of certain
regions in which fine wire electrodes had been painlessly implanted the
day before. [Experiments] have shown, he explained, that
"functions traditionally related to the psyche, such as friendliness,
pleasure or verbal expression, can be induced, modified and inhibited by
direct electrical stimulation of the brain." For example, he has been
able
to "play" monkeys and cats 'like little electronic toys" that yawn, hide,
fight, play, mate and go to sleep on command.
With humans under
treatment for epilepsy, he has increased word output sixfold in one
person, has produced severe anxiety in another, and in several others has
induced feelings of profound friendliness—all by electrical stimulation
of
various specific regions of their brains. "I do not know why more work of
this sort isn't done," he remarked recently, "because it is so economical
and easy." Monkeys will learn to press a button that sends a stimulus to
the brain of an enraged member of the colony and calms it down,
indicating
that animals can be taught to control one another's behavior.

Mind Games
2007-01-14, Washington
Post

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/10/AR20070110013...
A community
of people who believe the government is beaming voices into their minds
... may be crazy, but the Pentagon has pursued a weapon that can do just
that. An academic paper written for the Air Force in the mid-1990s
mentions the idea of [such] a weapon. "The signal can be a 'message from
God' that can warn the enemy of impending doom, or encourage the enemy to
surrender." In 2002, the Air Force Research Laboratory patented precisely
such a technology: using microwaves to send words into someone's head.
The patent was based on human experimentation in October 1994 at
the Air Force lab, where scientists were able to transmit phrases into
the
heads of human subjects, albeit with marginal intelligibility.
The
official U.S. Air Force position is that there are no non-thermal effects
of microwaves. Yet ... the military's use of weapons that employ
electromagnetic radiation to create pain is well-known. In 2001, the
Pentagon declassified one element of this research: the Active Denial
System, a weapon that uses electromagnetic radiation to heat skin and
create an intense burning sensation. While its exact range is
classified,
Doug Beason, an expert in directed-energy weapons, puts it at about 700
meters, and the beam cannot penetrate a number of materials, such as
aluminum. Given the history of America's clandestine research, it's
reasonable to assume that if the defense establishment could develop
mind-control or long-distance ray weapons, it almost certainly would.
And,
once developed, the possibility that they might be tested on innocent
civilians could not be categorically dismissed.

Hypnotic Experimentation and
Research

1954-02-10,
WantToKnow.info/Declassified U.S. Government Document

http://www.wanttoknow.info/mindcontrol10pg#cia190691
A
posthypnotic of the night before (pointed finger, you will sleep) was
enacted. Misses [whited out] and [whited out] immediately progressed to a
deep hypnotic state with no further suggestion. Miss [whited out] was
instructed (having previously expressed a fear of firearms in any
fashion)
that she would use every method at her disposal to awaken Miss [whited
out]
(now in a deep hypnotic sleep). Failing this, she would pick up a pistol
nearby and fire it at Miss [whited out]. She was instructed that her rage
would be so great that she would not hesitate to "kill" [whited out] for
failing to awaken. Miss [whited out] carried out these suggestions to the
letter including firing the (unloaded) gun at [whited out] and then
proceeded to fall into a deep sleep. Both were awakened and
expressed complete amnesia for the entire sequence. Miss [whited out] was
again handed the gun, which she refused (in an awakened state) to pick up
or accept from the operator. She expressed absolute denial that the
foregoing sequence had happened.

Live rats driven by remote
control



2002-05-05, The Guardian (One
of
the U.K.'s leading newspapers)



http://www.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,3604,708454,00.html


Scientists


have turned living rats into remote-controlled, pleasure-driven robots


which can be guided up ladders, through ruins and into minefields at the


click of a laptop key. The project ... is funded by the US military's


research arm. Animals have often been used by humans in combat and in


search and rescue, but not under direct computer-to-brain electronic


control. The advent of surgically altered roborats marks the crossing of


a


new boundary in the mechanisation, and potential militarisation, of


nature.


In 10 sessions the rats learned that if they ran forward and turned left


or


right on cue, they would be "rewarded" with a buzz of electrically


delivered pleasure. Once trained they would move instantaneously and


accurately as directed, for up to an hour at a time. The rats could be


steered up ladders, along narrow ledges and down ramps, up trees, and


into


collapsed piles of concrete rubble. Roborats fitted with cameras
or
other sensors could be used as search and rescue aids. In theory, be put
to
some unpleasant uses, such as assassination.
[For] surveillance


... you could apply this to birds ... if you could fit birds with


sensors and cameras. Michael Reiss, professor of science education at


London's Institute of Education and a leading bioethics thinker ... said


he was uneasy about humankind "subverting the autonomy" of animals.


"There


is a part of me that is not entirely happy with the idea of our


subverting


a sentient animal's own aspirations and wish to lead a life of its own."

decade

A remote control that controls
humans



2005-10-26,
MSNBC/Associated Press



http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9816703/wid/11915829


Prepare


to


be remotely controlled. I was. Just imagine being rendered the rough


equivalent of a radio-controlled toy car. Japan's top telephone company


says it is developing the technology to perhaps make video games more


realistic. But more sinister applications also come to mind. I can


envision it being added to militaries' arsenals of so-called "non-lethal"

weapons. A special headset was placed on my cranium by my hosts


during


a recent demonstration. It sent a very low voltage electric current


from


the back of my ears through my head -- either from left to right or


right to left, depending on which way the joystick on a remote-control


was moved. I found the experience unnerving and exhausting: I sought to


step straight ahead but kept careening from side to side. Those


alternating currents literally threw me off. The technology is called


galvanic vestibular stimulation -- essentially, electricity messes


with the delicate nerves inside the ear that help maintain balance.


I felt a mysterious, irresistible urge to start walking to the
right whenever the researcher turned the switch to the right. I was
convinced -- mistakenly -- that this was the only way to maintain
my
balance.


















Cops Taser UCLA Student


2006-11-17, ABC News


http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=2662158


There is


[a]


painful six-minute
video that has suddenly spread all over the world. It shows part of


what happened in front of students who had been studying in the UCLA


library when an Iranian-American student reportedly did not show any ID


to


campus police. The excruciating video clip [shows] enraged students


screaming at police; police yelling back and using strong force trying to


get students under control. "Here's your Patriot Act!" shouts a student,


using profanity after screaming out in anguished pain from the electric


jolts of a police Taser. "Stand up or you'll get Tasered again!" the


police shout back. Appalled fellow students crowd in, some demanding the


badge numbers of the police. To watch the video, click
here
. Police Department Assistant Chief Jeff Young [said]


"He


had refused to identify himself; he had refused to leave the library,


and...he went limp, which is a form of resistance." Some students saw it


differently. "Tabatabainejad was also stunned with the Taser when he was


already handcuffed," complained third-year student Carlos Zaragoza.


Tasers


are increasingly controversial — a powerful means of control for police


that is apparently sometimes too powerful. While it is often referred to


as a "non-lethal" weapon [a study] found that since 1999, 84 people in


the United States and Canada have died after being shocked by a Taser.


Four of UCLA's nearly 60 full-time police officers recently won
"Taser Awards," given by the manufacturers of the electronic shock
device.















Israelis unleash Scream at
protest



2005-06-06, Toronto Star (One of
Canada's leading newspapers)



http://www.torstarreports.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=thestar/Layout...





The


knees


buckle, the brain aches, the stomach turns. And suddenly, nobody feels


like


protesting anymore. Witnesses describe a minute-long blast of sound
emanating from a white Israeli military vehicle. Within seconds,
protestors began falling to their knees, unable to maintain their
balance.
An Israeli military source, speaking on the customary


condition of anonymity, confirmed the existence of the Scream. "The


intention is to disperse crowds with sound pulses that create nausea and


dizziness," the Israel Defence Force spokesperson told the Toronto Star.


The IDF is saying little about the science behind the Scream, citing


classified information. But the technology is believed to be similar to


the LRAD — Long-Range Acoustic Device — used by U.S. forces in Iraq as a


means of crowd control. Hillel Pratt, a professor of neurobiology ...


likens the effect of such technologies to simulated seasickness. "It


doesn't necessarily have to be a loud sound. The combination of low


frequencies at high intensities, for example, can create discrepancies in


the inputs to the brain," said Pratt. Arik Asherman, a leader of Rabbis


For Human Rights, was cautiously optimistic the Scream could make a


positive difference. But Asherman said Israeli officials would be wise to


use the Scream sparingly. "We need to remind ourselves the problem is not


the demonstrations, but what the demonstrations are about," he said. "If


this makes it any more difficult for Palestinians to express themselves


in


a non-violent way, that is problematic. The best way to disperse


demonstrations is to deal with the actual issues.
