Letter: Hand held microwave weapons
Published on July 15, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

My Cuban friends told me told me at the weekend that Cuba has been developing a handheld microwave weapon. A weapon that seriously damages eyesight, causes strokes, and fries the brain, giving the effect of senility to those who are targeted. It’s apparently for use during demonstrations, a way of eventually eliminating demonstrators, and therefore demonstrations.

There has been a coalition of the willing working on it, of almost the same group and make up as those who shafted us over the Argyle airport: Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, and North Korea. They have been working together on this weapon for the last five years. Apparently, testing the weapon in North Korea has been no problem, and that location was chosen because the people there do not understand a word of Spanish.

Has the weapon been tested in the Caribbean? That I cannot tell you, but if it has, it would be an ALBA project, a plum achievement for Marxism. It would have most probably initially gone to the ALBA Military College in Bolivia. Besides a whole bunch of Cubans, there is also a group of Iranian Presidential Guards teaching there, and they have now been joined by 67 Russians.

The Americans have also been working on such research and are far ahead of the competition. They have a whole range of such weapons.

US tests of a controversial weapon that is designed to heat people's skin with a microwave beam have shown that it can disperse crowds. The 3-millimetre wavelength radiation penetrates only 0.3 millimetres into the skin, rapidly heating the surface above the 45oC pain threshold. At 50oC, they say the pain reflex makes people pull away automatically in less than a second -- it's said to feel like fleetingly touching a hot light bulb. Someone would have to stay in the beam for 250 seconds before it burnt the skin, the lab says, giving "ample margin between intolerable pain and causing a burn".

The Russians have been working on such weaponry for years; they sent a weapon into space to test it. Why test it in space, when they have still got lots of political prisoners to try it on in Russia?

Directed energy weapons that target the central nervous system and cause neurophysiological disorders may violate the UN Convention Certain Conventional Weapons of 1980. Weapons that go beyond non-lethal intentions and cause "superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering" may also violate the Protocol I of 1977 to the Geneva Conventions.

Was a microwave weapon used on a Vincentian radio host; was he frazzled by a Cuban microwave weapon?

Was this the secret weapon that Glen Jackson was about to report on TV? Is that why he was professionally assassinated? Or was it for the other reason written in Wikileaks: he was about to expose a nasty situation with one or more of the ULP regime hierarchy?

Apparently during testing, when pulling the trigger on the weapon, a warning is supposed to be called: “Freír esta noche,” of course no one knew how to say that in Korean, and they didn't understand a word of Spanish.
