LED lights in your house can cause irreversible damage to the eyes and lead to a vision-robbing condition, French health authority warns
• ANSES urged officials to revise the maximum limit for exposure to LED lights
• In a 400-page report, the body warned powerful LED lights are ‘photo-toxic’ 
• LED phone, tablet and laptop screens do not pose a risk of eye damage, it said
• But it urged car manufacturers to ‘limit the luminous intensity of headlights’

LED lights can permanently damage the retina and disturb natural sleep rhythms, France’s government-run health watchdog has said. The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) warned powerful LED lights are ‘photo-toxic’.  In a 400-page report, the body cautioned it can cause an irreversible loss of retinal cells and lead to a common cause of blindness.


ANSES urged officials to revise the maximum limit for exposure to LED lights, which emit ‘blue light’ at much higher quantities. LED phone, tablet and laptop screens do not pose a risk of eye damage – but the intense bulbs used in car headlights may. French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) warned exposure to an intense and powerful LED light is ‘photo-toxic’

The report distinguished between acute exposure of high-intensity LED light, and ‘chronic exposure’ to lower intensity sources. While less dangerous, even chronic exposure can ‘accelerate the ageing of retinal tissue’ and contribute to poor vision, the agency said. 

Long-lasting, energy efficient and inexpensive, LED technology has gobbled up half of the general lighting market in a decade. And industry experts predict its share will continue to rise, topping 60 per cent by the end of next year.


WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT AND WHAT ARE THE DANGERS? 
Long-lasting, energy efficient and inexpensive, LED technology has gobbled up half of the general lighting market in a decade.
And industry experts predict its share will continue to rise, topping 60 per cent by the end of next year.
However, LED lights emit much higher quantities of blue light than standard incandescent bulbs of comparable brightness. 
Blue light, which has one of the shortest wavelengths, is also emitted by flat screens, smartphones and tablets. 
It has long been suspected to be the reason that night shift workers, exposed to artificial light for longer, have a greater risk of cancer.
The light cuts the body’s production of melatonin, which plays a key role in regulating the body clock. 
This may disrupt other hormones. Both prostate and breast cancer are known to be hormone-related.
And researchers at the University of Toledo last year warned blue light may damage vision and speed up the onset of blindness. 
They found prolonged exposure triggers the death of light-sensitive cells in the eye — which can lead to macular degeneration.
Blue light can penetrate the deeper layer of skin, making skin thinner and more fragile, dermatologists also claim.

The “blue light” in LED lighting can damage the eye’s retina and disturb natural sleep rhythms, France’s government-run health watchdog said this week. From a report: New findings confirm earlier concerns that “exposure to an intense and powerful [LED] light is ‘photo-toxic’ and can lead to irreversible loss of retinal cells and diminished sharpness of vision,” the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) warned in a statement. The agency recommended in a 400-page report that the maximum limit for acute exposure be revised, even if such levels are rarely met in home or work environments.

The report distinguished between acute exposure of high-intensity LED light, and “chronic exposure” to lower intensity sources. While less dangerous, even chronic exposure can “accelerate the ageing of retinal tissue, contributing to a decline in visual acuity and certain degenerative diseases such as age-related macular degeneration,” the agency concluded. Long-lasting, energy efficient and inexpensive, light-emitting diode (LED) technology has gobbled up half of the general lighting market in a decade, and will top 60 percent by the end of next year, according to industry projections.

We never left Home part 2: Love will be your fuel in this battle, the Force that guides you Home.

VSF: Part Two of transmissions from the God-within me in 2016. Even three years ago I was being told to remain in a state of Love. These are very violent hard times on our planet and the insanity will increase exponentially. Protect yourself and your loved ones by holding a high consciousness, with an adamantine Will move to ‘higher ground’ where the demons have no access. God is waiting for each one of us always.

April 2016

There is nothing you have ever done or been that is not and was not ME [the God-within]. With this understanding in Wisdom and for this reason,
you are released from any and all ‘attachment’ — that which binds you in the temporal illusory holographic matrix. You are liberated from ‘attachment’ to your acts upon Realization that ALL is Me [the God-within all].

Love conquers anger & fear

Anger is easily come by in these days. Anger and fear are the two sides of the same coin.

Finding sacred Love in this desolation requires a greater Self-Mastery and is far more powerful — because Love is the greatest Force, the ultimate Source of Real and lasting power in this and all worlds.

God is Love.

Therefore in whatever ways you can do so, seek to remain in a state of Love. Allow that Love flow from you. Find Love in your heart for who and whatever you are able — Love for your family, children, your beloved, your home, pets, Love for the Earth, her forests, the animals, oceans, stars and endless galaxies.

Even your science now tells you that billions of galaxies exist. In such an unlimited infinite universe, surely in humble reverence there is much to Love, to hold sacred within your Hearts.

Love and Truth

Hate comes easily. Hate is the product of Fear. Hate and fear weaken you and lower your consciousness. Yes, this is a terrible moment on your planet Earth — a time of looking deeply into your very Being, a time of a cleansing purification both externally and within. Know beyond all doubt that Truth, goodness, mercy, compassion and integrity will return to the third dimensional earth-plane — and inevitably vanquish the Dark, as Truth always does. Love and Truth.

Reach into your Heart and find Love. Be That. Emanate That.

Love will be your fuel in this battle, the Force that guides you Home.

God is Love.

The tyrant ETs are literally short circuiting the brain waves of the entire planet. The entire atmosphere of your planet is now saturated with their toxic radiation. They are covering the planet with a “net” [Space Fence] of rf radio frequency/microwave/scalar wave frequencies that alter the human brain and its capacity to receive and process information coming through five sense perception and from the higher realms.

If the ‘demonic’ entities could experience God-Consciousness, true Enlightenment, and in this understanding Realize they too are a part of the One God — they would not waste their lives and time seeking worldly powers and obscene wealth.

God is Love.
Polarity Universes produce Ecstasy for their Creators.

Whatever is created, manifested also is existing as ‘destroyed’ in the un-manifest. Therefore whatever is created will become destroyed, dissolved, returned to its latent state to be recreated again. This mechanism of creation and destruction are inseparable.

The uncreated or dissolved-destroyed is inherent, existing within the created manifest. Just as the created manifest is inherently existing in the uncreated dissolved—PRALYAYA—destroyed. Always. This is the metaphysical structure of a Polarity Universe. Death is contained in birth, as birth is in death.

Think of yourself as part of the volunteers for special projects in the United Confederation of InterGalactic Space Warriors.

We never left Home …

VSF: Sometime ago the God-within me sent these words. Perhaps they may be of use to you.


The Dissolution — PRALAYA
We never left Home. Use this most auspicious opportunity in the Illusion of Time — as Time is speeding up, moving towards the Dissolution [of this Kali Yuga cycle]. Now you can move further into your Enlightenment, even if you never thought of doing this before.

The God-within will spontaneously awaken you in the most unexpected charming loving ways. God loves surprise — the unknown, unexpected.

God is Love.


March 9, 2016

Yes, your planet Earth is being poisoned by demonic forces, who want most of Earth’s people to slowly perish. This is the inevitable consequence of the consciousness that has pervaded this planet for 6000 years — increasing ‘density’ to the point of planetary suicide. Omnicide.

Just as pain purifies the individual, so will Earth’s suffering lead to a planetary purification. Eventually the consequences of these terrible acts [the poisoning of air, water & earth] will lead to the Great Purification and the Earth will restore Herself.

Galactic Time Cycles can extend into millions of years.

God is Love.

The prevailing consciousness [of power & greed] has brought the inevitable consequences. The demonic are attracted by these low density frequencies and thus the terrestrial inhabitants of planet Earth have brought this to themselves.

God is Love.

The Refuge of Infinite Love, Joy and Peace is residing eternally within each man, woman and child.

God is Love.

God is everywhere — ubiquitous, in everything and everything is interconnected.

The Woven Universe.

God is Love — and so are we all.
TAT TVAM ASI — Thou are That.

Use this auspicious time to come Home. You never left Home.

The demonic ‘evil’ ones who are bringing this Dissolution will be destroyed by their own acts. They will implode, collapse, dissolve themselves. Forgive them. They are you and they are acting out the corrupt thinking of the entire species.


Become a ‘Beacon of Light’ for others. Let the Light of God Consciousness shine from you. The pain you have suffered serves to purify you to make room for God-Consciousness.

Let your body become a Home for the God-within you. Nothing but this will bring you Joy and happiness now. With God Realization, everything brings Joy and Bliss because God is in everything — God is residing in all ‘appearances.’ Ubiquitous.

Come Home, Beloved.
You ARE Me! You never left Home. I have always been inside you, inside your Heart and Mind, waiting patiently for you to turn completely to Me and Dissolve in our Embrace.
I am HERE always!
I am.


Doubt Free Knowledge is God Realization! Live within God always 24/7. Remain in Peace! Thought free. Thoughts come around and about objects. Remain indifferent. Let thoughts come and go. Remain indifferent in the outer world. Remain indifferent — or suffer in polarity, in judgement.

Evidence: ‘Effects of the Ionosphere Heating by Powerful HF Transmitters’ the text provides evidence of the cooperation of the United States, Norway and Russia in experiments using powerful ground-based HF (3-30 MHz) transmitters to heat the lower ionosphere by electromagnetic radiation.

The Atmosphere & Ionosphere: Dynamics, Processes & Monitoring
Edited by Vladimir L. Bychkov, Gennady V. Golubkov, Anatoly I. Nikitin
Published by Springer 2010

From July 7-12, 2008 the 1st International conference “Atmosphere, Ionosphere, Safety (AIS-2008)” was held in Zelenogradsk Russia — described as a cosy resort on the bank of the Baltic Sea near Kalingrad in Russia. Organizers of the conference were a Russian university, a Russian institute of chemical physics, the Pushkin Institute of terrestrial magnetism and radio-wave propagation, and the Russian Committee on Ball Lightning. Financial support was made by the Russian Fund of Fundamental Research Project N. 08-03-06041 and a European Office of Aerospace Research & Development Grant award.

The conference was devoted to (1) the analysis of the atmosphere-ionosphere response on natural and man-made processes, the reasons of occurrence of the various accompanying geophysical phenomena, and an estimation of possible consequences of their influence on the person and technological systems; (2) the study of the monitoring possibility and search of the ways for the risk level decrease. The editors admit that “questions of safety took only a rather modest place.”

The descriptions in Chapter 3, Atmosphere—Ionosphere Electrodynamic Coupling, by V.M. Sorokin and V.M. Chmyrev are particularly riveting. In section 3.2.2 entitled ‘Effects of the Ionosphere Heating by Powerful HF Transmitters’ the text provides evidence of the cooperation of the United States, Norway and Russia in experiments using powerful ground-based HF (3-30 MHz) transmitters to heat the lower ionosphere by electromagnetic radiation.

The transmitters were said to be located for example in Fairbanks Alaska, Oahu Hawaii, Fort Yukon Alaska, Platteville Colorado, Annapolis Maryland 21.4kHz NSS transmitter (in 1992) registered at Gander Newfoundland, Tromso Norway, Aldra Norway, Helgeland Norway, Arecibo Puerto Rico, in 1987 the Arkhangelsk region in Russia (which includes the archipelagos of Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya in the Arkhangelsk Oblast) , and SURA (commonly known as the Russian HAARP).

We are constantly warned that Russia and the USA will soon be at war. However from the extensive information in this 2010 Springer text, we can assume that at least initially, there has been cooperation between the United States, Russia, Norway, and others regarding ongoing global operations using ground-based transmitters that [according to the text] heat the Ionosphere, form plasma density inhomogeneities, excite gamma ray bursts and atmospheric emissions of different spectral bands, generate ULF/ELF/VLF electromagnetic waves and plasma turbulence in the atmosphere, stimulate radiation belt electron precipitations and the acceleration of ions in the upper atmosphere.

A selection of intriguing statements from Chapter 3:


“The lower atmosphere modification is produced by the injection and turbulent transfer of charged aerosols and radioactive substances, which lead to the formation of an external electric current in the atmosphere, changes in the Earth-Ionosphere electric circuit, an enhancement of DC electric field in the lower ionosphere, and related development of acoustic-gravity wave instability responsible for the generation of the plasma density and electric conductivity inhomogeneities.”

Arkhangelsk VLF Transmitter: “The VLF transmitter … started to work several hours before the satellite arrival in the transmitter zone, and there was enough time for pumping the accelerated particles into a wide range of geomagnetic tubes.” [Many of the Russian experiments are said to take place onboard the Russian COSMOS-1809 satellite.]

“The enhanced injection of radon and metallic aerosols in the epicenter region [of thermal anomalies in seismic zones] and its influence on the Ionosphere …” [Radon and metallic aerosols emanations before strong earthquakes and their role in atmosphere and Ionosphere modification; S.A. Pulinets, V.A, et al; 1997]

E.M. Nicolay & Antarctica

This post contains a wonderful talk by E.M. Nicolay about Antarctica, and also reveals his prescient metaphysical remote-view visions of our future and the reason for the Invasion.

https://go.nasa.gov/2yDfAYU

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on E.M. Nicolay & Antarctica

For the Emissaries: The Refuge and Jivan Mukti

For the Emissaries: The Refuge and Jivan Mukti

VSF: This post is for those of you who have long understood that our planet Earth has indeed been invaded, as E.M. Nicolay puts it a ‘bio-invasion’ that has been intentionally covered up and kept secret by the invaders — the Draco Reptilians and their deceiving ruthless deviant minion-partners the Zeta Reticuli. As I have previously shared I received this tragic news while I was still living in New Zealand, when Inanna revealed to me the terrible truth – “We lost the planet.”

Upon returning to the United States in 2014 my life has been an unfolding series of events that have provided me with hard evidence of the Invasion. Living as I do in an electronic warfare EW zone, every day I am observing and photographing the bizarre completely abnormal patterns of cloud formations being generated by the Navy here on the Olympic Peninsula.

These electri-fried plasma clouds are not only a basic element of electronic warfare that the military does admit to, they are also in integral component of the geoengineering that is not admitted. Geoengineering is in fact emphatically denied even though technologies to geoengineer the planet have been patented and increasingly refined for some 70 years now — my lifetime.

No off-planet race of extraterrestrial beings would colonize a planet without knowledge of geoengineering. It would be foolish to invade a planet without the ability to alter its atmosphere, geology, water sources, etc. — to move mountains, redirect rivers, manipulate the jet stream and the ocean currents.

As researcher Dr. David Jacobs has said, this kind of bio-invasion has been done many times before. It has been proven successful on other planets and is succeeding here and now on Earth.

The implementation of 5G is already underway. Nothing will stop this, just as nothing will stop the geoengineering of the planet by multinational corporations like Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon, Boeing, American Elements to name a few. These corporations wield enormous power, they are making vast fortunes, and through contractual agreements are under the control of the Invaders.

5G will essentially allow, enhance and empower the complete Invasion of our human bodies, which have now been inundated saturated with a plethora of metal oxides — aluminum (dementia), lithium (makes you passive, tired), barium (a poison that remains in the digestive tract), strontium, and a multitude of nano-particles that are based in fungi. It has become impossible to get samples analyzed as laboratories with (very expensive) equipment, which could reveal the precise content of the ‘grey dust’ that accumulates in our homes, refuse to do so.

5G frequency waveforms will not only continue to invade our brains with thoughts we do not even recognize as being our own — it will also begin to alter our DNA. The Draco Reptilian and Zeta Reticuli races are ‘service to self’ and the Human Angelic is ‘service to others.’ As E.M. Nicolay has said, the Draco & Zeta Agenda is to rid this planet of the Human Angelic Soul group to leave the planet clear for their own Soul groups. Total conquest. This process includes cutting us off from the Higher Guidance, which during this Ascension time period is naturally coming to us from our Galactic Core

SCALAR Technology

E.M. Nicolay often uses the term ‘scalar’ to describe the technologies being used by the invaders. He states that blasts of sound energy and “manipulated scalar frequencies” being used in our oceans are highly disruptive to ocean mammals and individual Soul beings like us. These blasts of sonar sound also cut off communications with the Higher Selves of these beings, their Souls, and in doing so mankind [the Navy unknowingly in league with the Invaders] is comitting one of the gravest sins known in the universe — “interference with a sentient being’s access to it higher consciousness, its guides and its Soul.”

E.M. Nicolay / The Systems Lords and the Twelve Dimensions: “Scalar frequencies and waves are now being haphazardly used in your skies and under the Earth as well, and what you do not understand is that this is also having a profound effect on limiting your own connection to your Soul and your own higher guidance. What is more concerning is that this is not being done accidentally, but intentionally in order to block much of your ability to connect to the higher energetic waves emanating from the galactic center at this time.”

The invaders have manipulated our military and the power elite to believe that these heinous to-all-life technologies will give them superior military force to dominate enemy nations and adversaries around the planet. However because the military has no knowledge of metaphysical realities, they do not understand the real purpose of what is being termed the ‘Space Fence’ — the ionization of the atmosphere by countless transmitters using interferometry now located in strategic positions globally.

The real core goal is to cut off the Human Angelic Soul group from the current Ascension energies and usher souls that are in a miasma of amnesia, confusion and somnolent into various astral planes, where they will be sequestered, imprisoned, used as slaves energetically.

E.M. Nicolay: “You are not able to reach the higher realms in the astral state and in essence you are being blocked by the array of electromagnetic rays being propagated for telecommunication [wifi, 5G, cell towers, Nexrad, etc.] … you are being assaulted with electromagnetic pollution.”

Our only Refuge is a Higher Consciousness.

We are in the Twilight of the Kali Yuga. As the days quickly pass, I am more and more convinced that the only Refuge in these ever darkening times is a Higher Consciousness, Jivan Mukti. I respect the fact that all of you have by now have found and are continuing to find ways to uplift your consciousness — to stand on what I call ‘higher ground’ that cannot be reached by the Invaders, who do not have to ability to resonate with the frequency waveforms that sing out the Wisdom Knowledge filled with the understanding of Creation as the ONE.

Unite your consciousness into the God-within you and thus become a beacon of Light for others.

I do recommend to you the sacred Sanskrit texts which are offered freely on my primary website. Personally I have found my humble efforts of teaching myself Sanskrit to be very purifying and expanding. I realize the Sanskrit path is not for everyone. However, the sacred texts are now available and there are some splendid translations by the Kashmir Shaivite saint & scholar Swami Lakshmanjoo, the enlightened master & scholar Swami Muni Narayana Prasad, and Swami Krishnananda (free). The Gayatri Mantra is also excellent.

For a complete understanding of the Draco Reptilian and Zeta Reticuli Invasion, do read E.M. Nicolay. His prescience is flawless. And remember — especially for those of us who are weary of ‘playing’ in this time/space dimension — that as Nicolay says, this time is a wonderful opportunity “for growth to be participated in by all Souls, particularly those cycling off the time line forever.”

We meet in the Heart,

Susan

Trump’s Crusaders March to War on Iran
Eric Margolis / April 29, 2019
Washington plans to use its naval forces massed around Iran to interdict Tehran’s oil exports. Two US aircraft carriers are now on station within striking range of Iran.
… a huge crisis was building up of which the world has so far taken insufficient notice: renewed tensions in the oil-producing Gulf. This is the latest attempt by the United States to crush Iran’s independent-minded government and return it to American tutelage.

The Trump administration has demanded that the principal importers of 1.2 billion barrels of Iranian oil halt purchases almost immediately. This imperial diktat includes China, South Korea, Turkey, India and Japan. The comprehensive embargo is very close to an all-out act of war. In 1941, America’s cut-off of oil to Japan provoked the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The oil embargo not only violates international law, it sets the US on a collision course with some of its most important allies and vassal states. Brazen threats against Iran by Trump’s two main enforcers, National Security advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have reinforced America’s unfortunate image as an imperial power that threatens war against disobedient satraps and independent-minded nations.
Iran, a proud, ancient nation of 80 million, has become, with Turkey, the most effective opposition to America’s imperial domination of the Mideast and a key supporter of Palestinian rights and statehood. This has put Iran on a collision course with Israel and its influential American supporters, notably the Evangelical hard right which somehow believes that Jesus will only return to earth after Israel expands its border and mankind is destroyed.

Meanwhile, the Trump Administration, which has now become indistinguishable from Israel’s hard-line far right ruling coalition, has declared virtual war against Iran.
This has put Iran on a collision course with Israel and its influential American supporters, notably the Evangelical hard right which somehow believes that Jesus will only return to earth after Israel expands its border and mankind is destroyed.
Meanwhile, the Trump Administration, which has now become indistinguishable from Israel’s hard-line far right ruling coalition, has declared virtual war against Iran.
To benefit Israel, the White House cancelled a $20 billion order from Iran for Boeing aircraft, embargoed trade with Iran, reneged on the internationally backed nuclear deal with Tehran, cut off all aid to Palestinians, and keeps sustaining the savage Saudi/Emirati war against Yemen that has caused mass starvation and epidemics.
Trump has just unilaterally approved Israel’s illegal seizure of Syria’s Golan Heights, an act worthy of the 1916 Sykes-Picot treaty dividing up the Ottoman Mideast between Britain and France. US threats against Venezuela and Cuba grow louder.
Washington plans to use its naval forces massed around Iran to interdict Tehran’s oil exports. Two US aircraft carriers are now on station within striking range of Iran. I went to sea on one, the ‘Abraham Lincoln.’
China faces dire trade punishments for dealing with Iran. Welcome back to 19th century gunboat diplomacy. Even Washington’s European allies may be scourged for buying Iranian oil.

Bolton gets his way…
The Strategic Culture Foundation / April 29, 2019

With the US decision to end the eight waivers issued in respect to the import of oil and gas from Iran on 2 May, the Trump Administration effectively is taking its first steps along the path of undeclared war on Iran: An attempt to break the morale of the Iranian people (by pushing a greater proportion of the population towards absolute poverty), and to acquiesce to terms (Pompeo’s 12 conditions), which would amount to abject (and improbable) Iranian capitulation.It is a narrow path, bordered on all sides by lurking unforeseen, unforeseeable disasters – thorny thickets, in which Bolton and Pompeo may well find themselves painfully entangled. Will these steps then inevitably lead to grave escalation? They might; but also, Iran knows that if it can wriggle around these formidable impediments, and still remain standing, then Iran will stand victorious. To survive is to win. To survive will turn from Iran’s to America’s hurt.

… But this is not what US Iran policy is about. It may be true that Washington is disappointed that its pressures on Iran, so far, have achieved no results – in terms of changing the Iranian polity. But this waiver declaration is more about attending to Trump’s Evangelical base.  It is a particularly loyal base which wholly concurs with the Israeli Right that Revolutionary Iran stands as an impediment to the coming into being of the prophesied ‘Greater Israel’ – and concomitantly, with the return of the Messiah.

This ‘base’ (25% of Americans profess Evangelism), has turned a collective blind eye to all Trump’s moral failings, and totally disdained the Russiagate allegations. Unmoved by either, they just have come to believe that Trump is the amoral, secular, flawed – yet somehow ‘chosen’ – instrument who can lead Christians in the Cosmic war of good versus evil – with Iran cast as the cosmic evil.

And, behind in the shadows, lies ring-master, Sheldon Adelson and his billions, fusing together the (non-Evangelical) Bolton to Netanyahu’s Greater Israel project with the whole sitting atop Trump’s extraordinary loyal Evangelical base on which his continuance in office beyond 2020 may one day hang. The point here, is that this base is pressing for progress towards Rapture; the Bolton neoconservative base is pressing to settle old scores with Revolutionary Iran; the Israeli Right is pressing to take advantage of the ‘serendipidity’ of the Trump Presidency – and Trump wants to project his political muscularity as a campaign platform.

The most dense thicket into which the hikers may stumble is that by ending waivers for the major current importers of some one million barrels per day of Iranian oil – with China taking some half million, and India and Turkey most of the balance – the US is setting itself up for very troubled bilateral relations with key states: states with whom the US already has tense and finely balanced relations. India may cave to US pressure; but will China and Turkey? Iran says that it has other buyers waiting in the wings as well.

Visiongain Report Claims There is Huge Potential within the $5.8 Billion Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) Market 
LONDON, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ —
Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) Market Report 2019-2029
Forecasts by Product Type (High Powered Microwave HPM, High Powered Laser HPL). Analysis of Defensive, Offensive, C-UAV & Non-Lethal Applications for Leading Defence & Civilian Companies with DEW Technologies High Energy Laser (HEL), Airborne Laser (ABL), Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL), Free Electron Laser (FEL), Solid-State Laser (SSL), Tactical High Energy Laser (THEL), Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW), Laser Weapon System (LaWS) Plus Analysis of Defensive, Offensive, C-UAV & Non-Lethal Applications for Leading Defence Contractors & Civilian Companies
A directed-energy weapon (DEW) is the future weapon system that emits highly focused energy for target destruction. The potential applications of this advanced technology include anti-personnel weapon systems, missile defence system, and the disabling of lightly armoured vehicles. The use of DEW systems is much more cost effective than the massive cost associated with a single missile launch. With fast-track innovations in the military technology, such weapons are tools for future warfare.
The growing demand for non-lethal weapons is a primary driver of the market. Visiongain expects that countries such as Russia, the US, the UK, Israel, China, Japan, South Korea, India, and the UAE will increase their demand for these weapons, during the forecast period owing to the increasing extremist attacks and territorial disputes.
Such weapons have a number of advantages such as enhanced accuracy, reduced violence, limited damage, and multiple target attack. The integration of directed energy in chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) defence helps in effective limitation of its impact on human lives and the environment by detecting the nuclear radiation through laser and high-power microwave systems. Similarly, the progressive demand for laser weapon systems that have enhanced attack capabilities such as accuracy and undetectable characteristic are key drivers of the market.
This report splits the Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) market into two product type submarket categories: high-powered microwaves and high-energy lasers. Microwaves and lasers both operate on the electromagnetic spectrum, however, laser wavelengths are about 10,000 times smaller than microwaves, which means high-energy microwaves are more suited to emitting pulses of radiation at a wide angle, while high-energy lasers direct more focused beams of lower-powered energy using one of two mechanisms: chemical fuel or electric power.

Paradise destroyed / National Geographic
In Paradise, some residents awoke to the sound of embers raining down on their rooftops. They drove through fire and smoke too thick to see through, colliding with other cars and driving off embankments. Survivors describe the scene of horror in biblical terms. It was as if “the gates of hell had opened up.” “Black and red was all you could see.” … For hours, firefighters could only try to save lives. There was nothing they could do to contain the erratic, wind-whipped blaze. …
The new abnormal
Last December, the Thomas Fire burned through 281,893 acres (440 square miles) in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. It became the largest wildfire in California’s recorded history. Firefighters said they’d never seen anything like it before.
That fire was eclipsed just eight months later by the Mendocino Complex fire, which ravaged the wine country in the middle of the state and whipped up a deadly fire tornado, baffling firefighters as well as civilian onlookers. This week, firefighters in Northern California told reporters they’d never seen a fire move so fast as the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise.

The trend of warmer, dryer autumns precipitating faster, bigger, more dangerous fires is projected to continue indefinitely as greenhouse gases heat the planet.
In an op-ed last summer, climate scientist Daniel Swain of the University of California, Los Angeles, wrote that California’s governor Jerry Brown mischaracterized the recent siege of wildfires when he said they were California’s “new normal.”

“It would be a mistake to assume that the region has reached any semblance of a stable plateau,” Swain said. He urged California’s cities and officials to plan for a future of ever-worsening mega-fires.
On Sunday Brown revised his catchphrase: “This is not the new normal,” he said. “This is the new abnormal.”

Cancer-causing chemical taints water after California blaze
PARADISE, Calif. — The drinking water in Paradise, California, where 85 people died last year in the nation’s worst wildfire in a century, is contaminated with the cancer-causing chemical benzene, officials said.
Officials said they believe the contamination happened after the November firestorm created a toxic combination of gases in burning homes that got sucked into the water pipes as residents and firefighters drew water heavily, the Sacramento Bee newspaper reported Thursday.
Officials say that may explain why benzene, which has been linked to anemia and leukemia, has been found in tests at various spots rather than from one source in Paradise, which was largely destroyed.
The chemical occurs naturally in fire; is part of crude oil, gasoline and cigarette smoke; and is used to make plastics, synthetic fibers and other products, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control.
Melted plastic meters and plastic pipes also may have sent benzene into the system, water officials say.
Paradise Irrigation District officials say they have taken about 500 water samples around town, and they have found benzene 30 percent of the time.
“It is jaw-dropping,” said Dan Newton of the state Water Resources Control Board. “This is such a huge scale. None of us were prepared for this.”
Those who have assessed the problem say the water district may be able to clean pipes to some homes later this year, but it will take two years and up to $300 million before all hillside residents can safely drink, cook or bathe in the water.
About 1,500 of the town’s 27,000 residents are living in the few surviving houses. Water officials have warned them not to drink, cook, bathe or brush their teeth with tap water and to only take quick showers with warm water. Those residents are living on bottled water deliver daily and water tank deliveries.
Norman Stein, 84, drives 15 minutes each week to the water distribution center, loads his trunk with bottles and stacks them in his garage.

Nick Turse: The Hidden Tragedy of the Vietnam War with Chris Hedges / …violence against Vietnamese noncombatants was not at all exceptional during the conflict. Rather, it was pervasive and systematic, the predictable consequence of orders to “kill anything that moves.”

 

VSF:   I watched the video (link below) last night and it is still with me. I am soon to be 74, so the Vietnam era is a part of my youth, my being. However I did not realize the sheer brutality committed by the American soldiers in endless atrocities.  Journalist Nick Turse is interviewed by Chris Hedges and makes it clear that … violence against Vietnamese noncombatants was not at all exceptional during the conflict. Rather, it was pervasive and systematic, the predictable consequence of orders to “kill anything that moves.”


War often brings out the worst in human beings. The boy-next-door in the USA is no exception. The young recruits were indoctrinated to see the Vietnamese as non-human — just as the Apaches & Comanches in early Texas were seen as vermin to be eradicated.  


This video is horrifying. Do watch it. I believe we as Americans have been living under a suffocating miasma, a thick noxious atmosphere of denial for too long.  We have denied our crimes against humanity we committed in the false name patriotism, wars for  corporate profit and the American Empire — so we could buy ‘cheap’ stuff made with cheap labor at Walmart, etc. 

Our affliction of denial has destroyed our ability to see our own culpability, our criminality, and thus we have become inundated in delusion.  This ‘Delusion Thicket’ prevents us from seeing the truth clearly and makes us targets for the endless propaganda, double-speak being spewed out.

As Chris Hedges has so wisely said, “Privilege makes us blind!”


I urge you to watch this video. Hedges gives us the opportunity to learn what we should have known years ago. We are surrounded by unhappy ghosts, restless wandering ‘hungry’ ghosts from Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, the Palestinians — and our own soldiers who are lost in their overwhelming confusion, guilt and fear. We are haunted by the dead.


CHRIS HEDGES / On Contact: The Hidden Tragedy of the Vietnam War with Nick Turse


Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam (American Empire Project)


(the book) by Nick Turse


Based on classified documents and first-person interviews, a startling history of the American war on Vietnamese civilians.
 Americans have long been taught that events such as the notorious My Lai massacre were isolated incidents in the Vietnam War, carried out by “a few bad apples.” But as award-winning journalist and historian Nick Turse demonstrates in this groundbreaking investigation, violence against Vietnamese noncombatants was not at all exceptional during the conflict. Rather, it was pervasive and systematic, the predictable consequence of orders to “kill anything that moves.”

Drawing on more than a decade of research in secret Pentagon files and extensive interviews with American veterans and Vietnamese survivors, Turse reveals for the first time how official policies resulted in millions of innocent civilians killed and wounded. In shocking detail, he lays out the workings of a military machine that made crimes in almost every major American combat unit all but inevitable.

Kill Anything That Moves takes us from archives filled with Washington’s long-suppressed war crime investigations to the rural Vietnamese hamlets that bore the brunt of the war; from boot camps where young American soldiers learned to hate all Vietnamese to bloodthirsty campaigns like Operation Speedy Express, in which a general obsessed with body counts led soldiers to commit what one participant called “a My Lai a month.”


Thousands of Vietnam books later, Kill Anything That Moves, devastating and definitive, finally brings us face-to-face with the truth of a war that haunts Americans to this day.
Review

“An indispensable, paradigm-shifting new history of the war…  All these decades later, Americans still haven’t drawn the right lesson from Vietnam.” ―San Francisco Chronicle

“A searing and meticulously documented book…A damning account of the horrors the United States inflicted on civilians.” ―Financial Times

“Harrowing.” ―The New York Review of Books

“A powerful case…With his urgent but highly readable style, Turse delves into the secret history of U.S.-led atrocities. He has brought to his book an impressive trove of new research–archives explored and eyewitnesses interviewed in the United States and Vietnam. With superb narrative skill, he spotlights a troubling question: Why, with all the evidence collected by the military at the time of the war, were atrocities not prosecuted?” ―Washington Post

“There have been many memorable accounts of the terrible things done in Vietnam–memoirs, histories, documentaries, and movies. But Nick Turse has given us a fresh holistic work that stands alone for its blending of history and journalism, for the integrity of research brought to life through the diligence of first-person interviews….Here is a powerful message for us today–a reminder of what war really costs.” ―Bill Moyers, Moyers & Company

“In Kill Anything That Moves, Nick Turse has for the first time put together a comprehensive picture, written with mastery and dignity, of what American forces actually were doing in Vietnam. The findings disclose an almost unspeakable truth….Like a tightening net, the web of stories and reports drawn from myriad sources coalesces into a convincing, inescapable portrait of this war–a portrait that, as an American, you do not wish to see; that, having seen, you wish you could forget, but that you should not forget.” ―Jonathan Schell, The Nation

“A masterpiece… Kill Anything That Moves is not only one of the most important books ever written about the Vietnam conflict but provides readers with an unflinching account of the nature of modern industrial warfare….
Turse, finally, grasps that the trauma that plagues most combat veterans is a result not only of what they witnessed or endured, but what they did.” ―Chris Hedges, Truthdig

“Nick Turse’s explosive, groundbreaking reporting uncovers the horrifying truth.” ―Vanity Fair
“Explosive… A painful yet compelling look at the horrors of war.” ―Parade

“Astounding…Meticulous, extraordinary, and oddly moving.” ―Bookforum

“Meticulously documented, utterly persuasive, this book is a shattering and dismaying read.” ―Minneapolis Star Tribune

“If you are faint-hearted, you might want to keep some smelling salts nearby when you read it. It’s that bad…The truth hurts. This is an important book.” ―Dayton Daily News

“Kill Anything That Moves argues, persuasively and chillingly, that the mass rape, torture, mutilation and slaughter of Vietnamese civilians was not an aberration–not a one-off atrocity called My Lai–but rather the systematized policy of the American war machine.  These are devastating charges, and they demand answers because Turse has framed his case with deeply researched, relentless authority…There is no doubt in my mind that Kill Anything That Moves belongs on the very highest shelf of books on the Vietnam War.” ―The Millions

“In the sobering Kill Anything That Moves, Nick Turse provides an exhaustive account of how thousands upon thousands of innocent, unarmed South Vietnamese civilians were senselessly killed by a military that equated corpses with results.…Kill Anything That Moves is a staggering reminder that war has its gruesome subplots hidden underneath the headlines–but they’re even sadder when our heroes create them.” ―Bookpage

“An in-depth take on a horrific war…A detailed, well-documented account.” ―Publishers Weekly

“This book is an overdue and powerfully detailed account of widespread war crimes–homicide and torture and mutilation and rape–committed by American soldiers over the course of our military engagement in Vietnam. Nick Turse’s research and reportage is based in part on the U.S. military’s own records, reports, and transcripts, many of them long hidden from public scrutiny. Kill Anything That Moves is not only a compendium of pervasive and illegal and sickening savagery toward Vietnamese civilians, but it is also a record of repetitive deceit and cover-ups on the part of high ranking officers and officials. In the end, I hope, Turse’s book will become a hard-to-avoid, hard-to-dismiss corrective to the very common belief that war crimes and tolerance for war crimes were mere anomalies during our country’s military involvement in Vietnam.” ―Tim O’Brien, author of The Things They Carried

“Nick Turse reminds us again, in this painful and important book, why war should always be a last resort, and especially wars that have little to do with American national security.  We failed, as Turse makes clear, to deal after the Vietnam War with the murders that took place, and today–four decades later–the lessons have yet to be learned. We still prefer kicking down doors to talking.” ―Seymour Hersh, staff writer, The New Yorker

“This deeply disturbing book provides the fullest documentation yet of the brutality and ugliness that marked America’s war in Vietnam. No doubt some will charge Nick Turse with exaggeration or overstatement. Yet the evidence he has assembled is irrefutable. With the publication of Kill Anything That Moves, the claim that My Lai was a one-off event becomes utterly unsustainable.” ―Andrew J. Bacevich, Colonel, U.S. Army (Ret.), and author of Washington Rules: America’s Path To Permanent War

“American patriots will appreciate Nick Turse’s meticulously documented book, which for the first time reveals the real war in Vietnam and explains why it has taken so long to learn the whole truth.” ―James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers

“Meticulously researched, Kill Anything That Moves is the most comprehensive account to date of the war crimes committed by U.S. forces in Vietnam and the efforts made at the highest levels of the military to cover them up. It’s an important piece of history.” ―Frances FitzGerald, author of Fire in the Lake: The Vietnamese and the Americans in Vietnam

“In this deeply researched and provocative book Nick Turse returns us to Vietnam to raise anew the classic dilemmas of warfare and civil society. My Lai was not the full story of atrocities in Vietnam, and honestly facing the moral questions inherent in a ‘way of war’ is absolutely necessary to an effective military strategy. Turse documents a shortfall in accountability during the Vietnam War that should be disturbing to every reader.” ―John Prados, author of Vietnam: The History of an Unwinnable War, 1945–1975

“Nick Turse’s Kill Anything That Moves is essential reading, a powerful and moving account of the dark heart of the Vietnam War: the systematic killing of civilians, not as aberration but as standard operating procedure. Until this history is acknowledged it will be repeated, one way or another, in the wars the U.S. continues to fight.” ―Marilyn Young, author of The Vietnam Wars, 1945–1990

“Nick Turse has done more than anyone to demonstrate–and document–what should finally be incontrovertible: American atrocities in Vietnam were not infrequent and inadvertent, but the commonplace and inevitable result of official U.S. military policy.  And he does it with a narrative that is gripping and deeply humane.” ―Christian Appy, author of Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered From All Sides

“No book I have read in decades has so shaken me, as an American. Turse lays open the ground-level reality of a war that was far more atrocious than Americans at home have ever been allowed to know. He exposes official policies that encouraged ordinary American soldiers and airmen to inflict almost unimaginable horror and suffering on ordinary Vietnamese, followed by official cover-up as tenacious as Turse’s own decade of investigative effort against it. Kill Anything That Moves is obligatory reading for Americans, because its implications for the likely scale of atrocities and civilian casualties inflicted and covered up in our latest wars are inescapable and staggering.” ―Daniel Ellsberg, author of Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers

The Shiva Sutras In My Understanding / V. Susan Ferguson

Immersing my days in this sacred text is a source of unending joy for me, which I hope is contagious. It is my hope that my sincere, if somewhat humble impressions of these great sutras will encourage you to read their superbly powerful words of wisdom. I am not a scholar. You will find your own treasure hidden among these threads.

John and Denise Hughes, the hearts of the Universal Shaiva Fellowship, have been very kind in giving me permission to quote from Swami Lakshmanjoo’s Shiva Sutras, The Supreme Awakening. Swami Lakshmanjoo was also the source for Jaideva Singh’s wonderful translation.

I am endeavoring to use as few Sanskrit terms as possible and will not include many of the more complex understandings in Kashmir Shaivism. You will want to study these for yourself, and become familiar with the Sanskrit terms in the translations and commentaries by Swami Lakshmanjoo and Jaideva Singh.

The Shiva Sutras will serve as a brilliant unerring guide for you on your way Home. May you find the God within you. We Meet in the Heart.

American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War On America by Chris Hedges / Eternal Fascism: Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt by Umberto Eco

 / Only the Struggle Matters – by Chris Hedges

American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War On America by Chris Hedges
“The split in America, rather than simply economic, is between those who embrace reason, who function in the real world of cause and effect, and those who, numbed by isolation and despair, now seek meaning in a mythical world of intuition, a world that is no longer reality-based, a world of magic.”

“The triviality of American popular culture, its emptiness and gossip, accelerates this destruction of critical thought. It expands the void, the mindlessness that makes the magic, mythology, and irrationality of the Christian Right palatable. Television, the movement’s primary medium, allows viewers to preoccupy themselves with context-free information. The homogenized empty chatter on the airwaves, the banal amusement and clichés, the bizarre doublespeak endlessly repeated on cable news channels and the huge spectacles in sports stadiums have replaced America’s political, social and moral life, indeed replaced community itself. Television lends itself perfectly to this world of signs and wonders, to the narcissism of national and religious self-exaltation. Television discourages real communication. Its rapid frames and movements, its constant use of emotional images, its sudden shifts from one theme to an unrelated theme, banish logic and reason with dizzying perplexity. It, too, makes us feel good. It, too, promises to protect and serve us. It, too, promises to life us up and thrill us. The televangelists have built their movement on these commercial precepts. The totalitarian creed of the Religious Right has found in television the perfect medium. Its leaders know how television can be used to seduce and encourage us to walk away from dwindling, less exciting collectives that protect and nurture us. They have mastered television’s imperceptible, slowly induced hypnosis. And they understand the enticement of credo quia absurdum—I believe because it is absurb.”

“But this new class seeks to reduce the American working class to the levels of this global serfdom. After all, anything that drains corporate coffers is a loss of freedom–the God-given American freedom to exploit other human beings to make money. The marriage of this gospel of prosperity with raw, global capitalism, and the flaunting of the wealth and privilege it brings, are supposedly blessed and championed by Jesus Christ. Compassion is regulated to private, individual acts of charity or left to the churches. The callousness of the ideology, the notion that it in any way reflects the message of the gospels, which were preoccupied with the poor and the outcasts, illustrates how the new class has twisted Christian scripture to serve America’s god of capitalism and discredited the Enlightenment values we once prized.”

 

 

“The radical Christian Right calls for exclusion, cruelty and intolerance in the name of God. Its members do not commit evil for evil’s sake. They commit evil to make a better world. To attain this better world, they believe, some must suffer and be silenced, and at the end of time all those who oppose them must be destroyed. The worst suffering in human history has been carried out by those who preach such grand, utopian visions, those who seek to implant by force their narrow, particular version of goodness. This is true for all doctrines of personal salvation, from Christianity to ethnic nationalism to communism to fascism. Dreams of a universal good create hells of persecution, suffering and slaughter. No human being could ever be virtuous enough to attain such dreams, and the Earth has swallowed millions of hapless victims in the vain pursuit of a new heaven and a new Earth. Ironically, it is idealism that leads radical fundamentalists to strip human beings of their dignity and their sanctity and turn them into abstractions. Yet it is only by holding on to the sanctity of each individual, each human life, only by placing our faith in tiny, unheroic acts of compassion and kindness, that we survive as a community and as individual human beings. These small acts of kindness are deeply feared and subversive to these idealists.”

“Human kindness is deeply subversive to totalitarian creeds, which seek to thwart all compassion toward those deemed unworthy of moral consideration, those branded as internal or external enemies.”

“Ur-Fascism grows up and seeks consensus by exploiting and exacerbating the natural fear of difference. The first appeal of a fascist or prematurely fascist movement is an appeal against the intruders. Thus Ur-Fascism is racist by definition.”

“This is the apotheosis of capitalism, the divine sanction of the free market, of unhindered profit and the most rapacious cruelties of globalization. Corporations, rapidly turning America into an oligarchy, have little interest in Christian ethics, or anybody’s ethics. They know what they have to do, as the titans of the industry remind us, for their stockholders. They are content to increase profit at the expense of those who demand fair wages, health benefits, safe working conditions and pensions. This new oligarchic class is creating a global marketplace where all workers, to compete, will have to become like workers in dictatorships such as China: denied rights, their wages dictated to them by the state, and forbidden from organizing or striking. America once attempted to pull workers abroad up to American levels, to foster the building of foreign labor unions, to challenge the abuse of workers in factories that flood the American market with cheap goods. But this new class seeks to reduce the American working class to the levels of this global serfdom. After all, anything that drains corporate coffers is a loss of freedom—the God-given American freedom to exploit other human beings to make money. The marriage of this gospel of prosperity with raw, global capitalism, and the flaunting of the wealth and privilege it brings, are supposedly blessed and championed by Jesus Christ. Compassion is relegated to private, individual acts of charity or left to churches. The callousness of the ideology, the notion that it in any way reflects the message of the gospels, which were preoccupied with the poor and the outcasts, illustrates how the new class has twisted Christian scripture to serve America’s god of capitalism and discredited the Enlightenment values we once prized.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“This conditioning of children to fear nonconformity and blindly obey ensures continued obedience as adults. The difficult task of learning how to make moral choices, how to accept personal responsibility, how to deal with the chaos of human life is handed over to God-like authority figures. The process makes possible a perpetuation of childhood. It allows the adult to bask in the warm glow and magic of divine protection. It masks from them and from others the array of human weaknesses, including our deepest dreads, our fear of irrelevance and death, our vulnerability and uncertainty. It also makes it difficult, if not impossible, to build mature, loving relationships, for the believer is told it is all about them, about their needs, their desires, and above all, their protection and advancement. Relationships, even within families, splinter and fracture. Those who adopt the belief system, who find in the dictates of the church and its male leaders a binary world of right and wrong, build an exclusive and intolerant comradeship that subtly or overtly shuns and condemns the “unsaved.” People are no longer judged by their intrinsic qualities, by their actions or capacity for self-sacrifice and compassion, but by the rigidity of their obedience. This defines the good and the bad, the Christian and the infidel. And this obedience is a blunt and effective weapon against the possibility of a love that could overpower the dictates of the hierarchy.  In many ways it is love the leaders fear most, for it is love that unleashes passions and bonds that defy the carefully constructed edifices that keep followers trapped and enclosed. And while they speak often about love, as they do about family, it is the cohesive bonds created by family and love they war against.”

“In rallies like those in Johnson’s Ohio tour, friends, neighbors, colleagues and family members who do not conform to the ideology are gradually dehumanized. They are tainted with the despised characteristics inherent in the godless. This attack is waged in highly abstract terms, to negate the reality of concrete, specific and unique human characteristics, to deny the possibility of goodness in those who do not conform. Some human beings, the message goes, are no longer human beings. They are types. This new, exclusive community fosters rigidity, conformity and intolerance. In this new binary world segments of the human race are disqualified from moral and ethical consideration. And because fundamentalist followers live in a binary universe, they are incapable of seeing others as anything more than inverted reflections of themselves. If they seek to destroy nonbelievers to create a Christian America, then nonbelievers must be seeking to destroy them. This belief system negates the possibility of the ethical life. It fails to grasp that goodness must be sought outside the self and that the best defense against evil is to seek it within. When people come to believe that they are immune from evil, that there is no resemblance between themselves and those they define as the enemy, they will inevitably grow to embody the evil they claim to fight. It is only by grasping our own capacity for evil, our own darkness, that we hold our own capacity for evil at bay. When evil is purely external, then moral purification always entails the eradication of others.”

“It is important for us to realize that emphasis on conformity and the fear of spontaneous living can have an effect almost as devastating as the totalitarian’s deliberate assault on the mind . . . . Trained into conformity the child may well grow up into an adult who welcomes with relief the authoritarian demands of a totalitarian leader. It is the welcome repetition of an old pattern that can be followed without investment of a new emotional energy.”

“The difficult task of learning how to make moral choices, how to accept personal responsibility, how to deal with the chaos of human life is handed over to God-like authority figures. The process makes possible a perpetuation of childhood. It allows the adult to bask in the warm glow and magic of divine protection. ”

“When facts are treated as if they were opinions, when there is no universal standard by which to determine truth in law, in science, in scholarship, or in the reporting of events of the day, the world becomes a place where lies become true, where people can believe what they want to believe, where there is no possibility of reaching any conclusion not predetermined by those who interpret the official, divinely inspired text.”

VSF:  Chris Hedges is convinced that America is moving deeper into what he terms a ‘corporate fascism’ and in his 2006 book “American Fascists” Hedges quotes the Italian philosopher Umberto Eco’s ‘fourteen ways’ of Eternal Fascism. There is much to consider in these ideas on fascism, as the layers of lies we are suffocating within become increasingly dense and insanely absurd. Here I provide a few excerpts on Eco’s insights into what he terms Ur-Fascism. See the link below for the full article.


Eternal Fascism: Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt by Umberto Eco



Both Fascists and Nazis worshipped technology …
Action … must be taken before, or without, reflection.

Thinking is a form of emasculation.  … a symptom of Ur-Fascism, from Hermann Goering’s fondness for a phrase … ”When I hear the word ‘culture’ I reach for my gun” …

In modern culture the scientific community praises disagreement as a way to improve knowledge.

For Ur-Fascism, disagreement is treason.

Ur-Fascism grows up and seeks consensus by exploiting and exacerbating the natural fear of difference.

The first appeal of a fascist or prematurely fascist movement is an appeal against the intruders. Thus Ur-Fascism is racist by definition.
… the origin of nationalism. Besides, the only ones who can provide an identity to the nation are its enemies.

Thus at the root of the Ur-Fascist psychology there is the obsession with a plot, possibly an international one. The followers must feel besieged. …
The followers must feel humiliated by the ostentatious wealth and force of their enemies.  … must also be convinced that they can overwhelm the enemies.

Fascist governments are condemned to lose wars because they are constitutionally incapable of objectively evaluating the force of the enemy.

For Ur-Fascism there is no struggle for life but, rather, life is lived for struggle.  Thus pacifism is trafficking with the enemy. It is bad because life is permanent warfare. This, however, brings about an Armageddon complex. Since enemies have to be defeated, there must be a final battle, after which the movement will have control of the world. But such “final solutions” implies a further era of peace, a Golden Age, which contradicts the principle of permanent war. No fascist leader has ever succeeded in solving this predicament.

Elitism is a typical aspect of any reactionary ideology, insofar as it is fundamentally aristocratic, and aristocratic and militaristic elitism cruelly implies contempt for the weak.
Ur-Fascism can only advocate a popular elitism. Every citizen belongs to the best people in the world, the members or the party are the best among the citizens, every citizen can (or ought to) become a member of the party. But there cannot be patricians without plebeians.

In fact, the Leader, knowing that his power was not delegated to him democratically but was conquered by force, also knows that his force is based upon the weakness of the masses; they are so weak as to need and deserve a ruler.
… the Ur-Fascist hero craves heroic death, advertised as the best reward for a heroic life. The Ur-Fascist hero is impatient to die. In his impatience, he more frequently sends other people to death.

… both permanent war and heroism are difficult games to play, the Ur-Fascist transfers his will to power to sexual matters.  … the Ur-Fascist hero tends to play with weapons — doing so becomes an ersatz phallic exercise.
…

For Ur-Fascism, however, individuals as individuals have no rights, and the People is conceived as a quality, a monolithic entity expressing the Common Will. Since no large quantity of human beings can have a common will, the Leader pretends to be their interpreter.
…

Ur-Fascism speaks Newspeak.
Newspeak was invented by Orwell, in Nineteen Eighty-Four, as the official language of what he called Ingsoc, English Socialism. But elements of Ur-Fascism are common to different forms of dictatorship. All the Nazi or Fascist schoolbooks made use of an impoverished vocabulary, and an elementary syntax, in order to limit the instruments for complex and critical reasoning. But we must be ready to identify other kinds of Newspeak, even if they take the apparently innocent form of a popular talk show.

Only the Struggle Matters
By Chris Hedges
April 01, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –  PARIS—

In the small chapel to the right at the entrance of the neoclassical Church of Saint-Sulpice is a large mural by Eugène Delacroix. The painter, at the end of his career and suffering from the tuberculous laryngitis that would soon kill him, depicted a story from Genesis. “Jacob is traveling with the flocks and other gifts he is taking to his brother Esau in the hope of appeasing his anger,” Delacroix wrote in 1861 when the painting was completed. “A stranger appears, blocking his path, and engages him in a fierce struggle – The holy books see this struggle as a symbol of the trials God sometimes sends His chosen ones.”

Delacroix shows the stranger—an angel—and Jacob wrestling in a sunlit clearing in a thick forest. Jacob, bent with exertion, the muscles on his back tense, attempts to push back against the angel, who stands implacably upright. The mural, created with layers of paint and bold, thick brush strokes that would later inspire the Impressionists, was Delacroix’s final testament to the inherent struggle—a struggle he was acutely aware he would soon lose—with mortality.

Delacroix asks us what constitutes victory in life. What gives life meaning? How are we to live? Why struggle against forces that we can never overcome? In the biblical story, Jacob is crippled in the long night’s fight, then blessed at dawn by the departing angel. He begs the angel’s name. But that name remains unspoken.

Delacroix painted the inscription “Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink,” from Psalm 69, over the entrance to the Chapel of the Holy Angels, which holds two other murals by Delacroix portraying clashes with angels. On the ceiling is the Archangel Michael driving the demons from heaven. On the wall opposite Jacob and the angel, Heliodorus is attacked by angels as he attempts to steal the treasures from the temple in Jerusalem. A large window in the church’s stone wall spills sunlight over the paintings.

“Painting taunts and torments me in a thousand ways,” Delacroix wrote in his journal in 1861, seven months before completing his work at Saint-Sulpice. “… [T]hings that seemed to be the easiest to overcome present appalling, interminable difficulties. How is it, then, that instead of casting me down, this eternal combat lifts me up, not discouraging, but consoling me?”

Our worth is determined, the painter attempts to show us, not by what we do in life, but by what we do with what life gives us. It is the ferocity and steadfastness of the struggle that exalt us, especially when we comprehend that victory is ultimately impossible.  This wisdom would be echoed by Albert Camus almost a century after Delacroix when he wrote that life required us to “être à la hauteur de son désespoir”—rise up to the level of our despair.

Three Saturdays ago France experienced its 18th consecutive weekend protest by the gilets jaunes, or “yellow vests,” against President Emmanuel Macron’s austerity measures, tax cuts for the wealthy and privatization of public services. Members of the masked and violent Black Bloc had infiltrated the yellow-vest protest on the Champs-Élysées. A few dozen Black Bloc people smashed windows of luxury shops and torched Le Fouquet, one of the city’s best-known restaurants.

Police, who inexplicably waited to intervene, eventually used rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons to disperse the protesters. The images of the clashes and property destruction were repeatedly broadcast throughout the following week. The police chief would be fired. Macron, who during the mayhem was skiing in the Pyrenees, would ban protests on the Champs-Élysées and order 6,000 counter-terrorism soldiers deployed outside government buildings. The pleadings by yellow-vest organizers for Black Bloc activists to separate themselves from the nonviolent protests were effectively drowned out by the state’s successful demonization—bolstered by the broadcast media—of the protest movement as a threat to public order and security.

As clashes took place on the Champs-Élysées, some 20,000 demonstrators thronged the streets outside the old Paris Opera House to protest the government’s refusal to address the crisis of global warming. My wife and I were in this nonviolent crowd, which was largely ignored by the press for the more colorful scenes of newspaper kiosks going up in flames on the Champs-Élysées.

The Black Bloc in France, as in the United States, is a gift to the security and surveillance apparatus. …

Macron, who is deaf to the plight of the working class and serves as a French instrument for the global social inequality orchestrated by corporate elites, is pushing significant sectors of the population off the streets and into the arms of the neofascist Marine Le Pen, with whom our corporate masters can make an accommodation, just as they have with Donald Trump. What they fear is a popular uprising. What they fear is losing power. If it takes alliances with repugnant neofascists and demagogues to retain control they will make them.

The brutality of our corporate executioners grows by the day. They will stop at nothing, including wholesale murder, to consolidate power and amass greater profits. Blinded by hubris, driven by greed, disdainful of democracy, foolishly believing their wealth will protect them, they will herd us over the cliff unless they are overthrown.

Delacroix was right. It is the struggle that matters. Not the outcome. I was where I should have been that Saturday in front of the Paris Opera House. Yes, our cries were not heard. Yes, it may be futile. But the fight is what makes us human. It gives us dignity. It affirms life in the face of death. “This eternal combat” brings with it, as the painter knew, a strange kind of consolation that lifts us up to the level of our despair.

More than 1 million acres of U.S. cropland ravaged by floods

(Reuters) – At least 1 million acres (405,000 hectares) of U.S. farmland were flooded after the “bomb cyclone” storm left wide swaths of nine major grain producing states under water this month, satellite data analyzed by Gro Intelligence for Reuters showed.

Farms from the Dakotas to Missouri and beyond have been under water for a week or more, possibly impeding planting and damaging soil. The floods, which came just weeks before planting season starts in the Midwest, will likely reduce corn, wheat and soy production this year.

As the water recedes, the damage begins to reveal itself. Moreover, there are new problems that begin to manifest themselves as well. The road to recovery is just beginning and it will be a long one. This topic is a broad one and I could spend every hour of every day for months to create content that would fully explain and conceptualize the scale. This video is just a start. I went back to some locations that I shot on 3/15 and shot some aftermath on 3/20.

Midwest Apocalypse: According To Satellite Data, “At Least 1 Million Acres Of U.S. Farmland” Have Been Devastated By Floods

… the recent flooding caused “at least $3 billion” in economic damage according to authorities, but many believe that the final number will be far higher.

Thousands upon thousands of farms have been completely destroyed, and thousands upon thousands of farmers will not plant any crops at all this year.

In addition to the vast agricultural devastation that we have witnessed, thousands upon thousands of homes have been destroyed as well, and now the National Ground Water Association is warning that “the safety of more than a million private water wells” could be compromised…

Record flooding in the Midwest is now threatening the safety of more than a million private water wells. The National Ground Water Association estimates that people living in more than 300 counties across 10 states have their groundwater threatened from bacterial and industrial contamination carried by flood waters.

If you live in the middle of the country and there is a chance that your well may have been compromised, please don’t take any unnecessary chances.  Contaminated water can be really, really bad news.

The Olympic Peninsula, WA. sepia enhanced for clarity.

Unfortunately, this is just the beginning.  According to the NOAA, we are entering an “unprecedented flood season” that could potentially “impact an even bigger area of cropland”…

On Friday and Saturday, there will be “more heavy rains” in the Midwest, and Nebraska is in “the direct path” of the center of the storm…

From the Central Plains to the Midwest, it has been a disastrous spring for river flooding. A weather system slated to bring more heavy rains Friday into Saturday could aggravate the situation along and near the Missouri and Mississippi rivers.

It’s a one-two punch that combines additional rainwater with fresh runoff from snowmelt. Perhaps worst off is Nebraska, in the direct path of Friday’s quick burst of moisture. Barely a week has passed since Gov. Pete Ricketts estimated the cost of ongoing flooding in that state at more than $1 billion.

This is it.  America is being hammered by one storm after another, and I very much encourage you to get prepared for a very rough ride ahead.
There is going to be a lot more flooding.  Prices for beef, dairy, wheat, corn and soy products are going to rise significantly, and just when you think they are way too high they are going to keep on rising.

10 million people in Afghanistan face severe acute food insecurity after floods and drought

10 million people in Afghanistan (population 35 million) are facing severe acute food insecurity following 3 years of drought and recent floods.

Three years of drought have contributed to massive crop failure, economic hardship, hunger and loss of life, forcing 266 000 people from their homes, Afghan Red Crescent Society and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said March 28.

In March 2019, extreme weather deepened extreme hardship, when above normal rain and snow fell on soil with limited vegetation or ability to soak up the water, bringing flash floods to nine provinces, killing at least 63 people and displacing at least 281 000 to makeshift camps with inadequate services.

The worst affected provinces by recent floods are Kandahar, Helmand, Farah, Herat and Badghis. More than 16,000 houses were swept away and 8,670 damaged with approximately 250,000.

Temperatures are rising, leading to changes in snowmelt, and rainfall is getting more erratic, with an increased risk of floods and droughts, the organizations said, adding that repeated disasters have eroded people’s capacity to cope.

“Millions of people need both immediate, life-saving humanitarian assistance and a way out of this protracted crisis,” said Afghan Red Crescent Secretary-General Dr. Nilab Mobarez.

“The floods are the latest disaster to bitterly test the resilience of people already stretched to breaking point by drought. It’s extremely worrying because more floods are expected.”

Across many parts of the country, people lack safe water, proper sanitation and healthcare, which contribute to catastrophic levels of malnutrition.

New Bill Would See US Taxpayers Subsidize Experimental Israeli Laser Weapons


The U.S.-Israel Directed Energy Cooperation Act would deepen Israel’s access to grotesque weapons of war that have been developed by the U.S. military but have also been banned for use by American troops.


by Whitney Webb / Mint Press News / March 23, 2019
WASHINGTON — Last Thursday, Reps. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY) introduced the “U.S.-Israel Directed Energy Cooperation Act,” which would authorize “the Department of Defense to carry out bilateral cooperation with Israel to develop directed energy capabilities,” according to a press release.

Rep. Elise Stefanik‏Verified account @RepStefanik
@RepTedLieu & I introduced the U.S.-Israel Directed Energy Cooperation Act today. This bipartisan bill allows us to collaborate w/ Israel to counter global adversarial threats by increasing our cooperation on directed energy technology.


Directed energy weapons include laser weapons and particle beams; they are highly destructive but embraced by militaries for their “infinite magazines” and “incredible speed and range.”

More specifically, the bill — which is identical to a bill of the same name that Lieu and Stefanik introduced last year but failed to pass — would allow the Pentagon “to carry out research, development, test, and evaluation activities, on a joint basis with Israel, to establish directed energy capabilities that address threats to the United States, deployed forces of the United States, or Israel, and for other purposes.”

Arguably more troubling is the fact that this bill would deepen Israel’s access to grotesque weapons of war that have been developed by the U.S. military but have also been banned for use by American troops.  For instance, in the late 1990s, the U.S. and Israel collaborated on the “Nautilus” program that created lasers that cause permanent blindness in those targeted by literally “melting the eyeball.”

Though the “Nautilus” lasers were banned for use by the U.S. under the Clinton administration because they could cause permanent blindness, they were nevertheless shared with Israel’s government. A spokesman for U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command, John Cunningham, at the time told the Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs that the decision to share the technology with Israel had not been made by the command — which was the lead agency overseeing the program — and instead stated that “We are taking our orders from the Secretary of Defense [William Perry] and President Clinton.”

The “Nautilus” lasers were later shelved for use as missile defense by Israel in 2006, despite the U.S. and Israel having spent $300 million, owing to the “prohibitive cost” of their operation. However, Israel has continued to use the highly experimental technology to develop a new system it claimed was on the “verge of completion” this past December.
In light of this current bill, it is important to revisit the “Nautilus” example, as it clearly shows that the U.S. government, in past “collaborative” efforts, has provided experimental, hi-tech weapons to Israel even when they are so controversial, potent and deadly that the U.S.’ own military is banned from using them. This point is even more troubling when one considers that Israel regularly tests its experimental and newly developed weapons on Palestinians, including civilians, who live in the blockaded Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank.

U.S. to subsidize Israeli arsenal


While it has been touted as a means of “jointly” researching directed energy weapons, the text of the bill reveals that it would be used to funnel U.S. taxpayer funds to subsidize Israeli directed energy weapon research in Israel.


For instance, the bill states: “The Secretary of Defense is authorized to provide maintenance and sustainment support to Israel for the directed energy capabilities research, development, test, and evaluation activities authorized.” It then states that Israel’s financial contribution to said research would not necessarily need to be equal to the U.S.’ contribution, but merely “an amount that otherwise meets the best efforts of Israel, as mutually agreed to by the United States and Israel.”

Furthermore, the “memorandum of agreement” between the two countries states that the bill would require “the United States Government to receive semiannual reports on expenditure of funds, if any, by the Government of Israel, including a description of what the funds have been used for, when funds were expended, and an identification of entities that expended the funds.” This passage strongly suggests that the research will take place in Israel under Israeli government supervision.


The bill is part of a recent congressional effort to mandate close cooperation between the Israeli and U.S. governments in sensitive technology, despite Israel’s history of using such collaboration to steal state secrets. For instance, a widely overlooked provision of the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018 — which was nearly passed but ultimately blocked last year in the Senate by Rand Paul (R-KY) — would have mandated that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) work closely with the Israel Space Agency (ISA) “to identify and cooperatively pursue peaceful space exploration and science initiatives in areas of mutual interest.”
The provision was included despite the fact that an Israeli postdoctoral student, Amir Gat, at Caltech had illegally transmitted to Israel classified information on NASA technology. Gat is now employed by an Israeli state-run research institution.

Considering the source(s)
This current bill appears not to provide any direct benefit to the United States and, instead, promises to be a way of subsidizing hi-tech weapons research of an allied government that regularly commits war crimes.

Though Rep. Lieu has claimed that the legislation is an “opportunity” for the U.S. and would “save lives,” it seems that the $31,850 Lieu received from the pro-Israel lobby just last year may have swayed his opinion.

Yet, in contrast, the bill’s other sponsor, Rep. Stefanik, has not received such largesse from the Israel lobby. Instead, Stefanik is connected with and used to work for the country’s most notorious and zealously pro-Israel neoconservatives, when she served as communications director for the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI). FPI was founded in 2009 by neoconservatives Robert Kagan and Bill Kristol as the successor to the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), which had fallen into disrepute for its role in promoting — and some argue helping to plan — the Iraq War. Yet, Stefanik’s association with neoconservatives goes beyond her association with FPI, as neocon National Security Adviser John Bolton endorsed her re-election campaign bid in 2017.

Given the lack of benefit for the U.S. — and Israel’s history of war crimes and testing its newly developed weapons on disenfranchised Palestinians in blockaded Gaza or the occupied West Bank — this bill is a perfect example of yet another “Israel first” bill now making its way through the U.S. Congress.

Israel’s Genocidal Arms Customers

by Richard Siverstein / 11/17/18

For the past few years, a group of nine Israelis led by human rights lawyer Eitay Mack has sought to peel back the layer of secrecy shrouding Israel’s collusion with some of the worst genocide regimes in the world. They have done so by filing freedom of information requests with their country’s defense ministry, seeking documents concerning Israeli arms deals, consulting contracts, and training of the armed forces in Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Serbia, South Sudan, and Rwanda during decades of ethnic conflict in those nations. They’ve sought to learn the extent of the trade, what weapons were supplied and to whom, how the weapons were used, and how long the trade continued.

In every instance, the ministry denied their request, and they were forced to appeal to the Supreme Court. In every appeal, the court has sided with the military and ruled that such information was legitimately sealed from public view in order to protect the security of the nation.

It’s difficult to understand how the knowledge that Israel armed Rwandan murderers in the 1990s would harm national security. Much more likely, this exposure would damage Israel’s reputation and give ammunition to critics who claim it is a rogue state intent on violating international law and norms of conduct.

Protecting the State


In Israel, a national security state in which individual rights and the public’s right to know are subordinated to the interests of the military-intelligence apparatus, these two factors are often conflated. It is much easier to justify secrecy using the concept of protecting the state and its citizens than it is to admit that secrecy is meant to protect the reputation of the very security apparatus charged with protecting them.

Israel has recently censored two major reports claiming that the country was secretly arming nations and groups engaged in genocide or mass violence. The first again concerned Eitay Mack, who had appealed to the Supreme Court to permit exposure of Israeli arms trade to Sri Lanka’s Sinhalese forces. These forces exterminated the Tamil Tiger rebellion during a thirty-year civil war that ended in 2009, with the loss of forty thousand to seventy-five thousand civilians and combatants.

Here is Mack’s account of the major role Israeli weapons played in some of the worst massacres of that thirty-year civil war:

In Sri Lanka the State of Israel played a most pivotal role in war crimes and crimes against humanity carried out there: [it] supplied drones which directed planes and warships made in Israel, and these deliberately targeted and bombed civilians and . . . humanitarian sites, and determined the fate of the war at an extremely high human cost. Sri Lankan forces which carried out the crimes had received [Israel Defense Forces] IDF training (especially from the Israeli Air Force and Navy), as well as from the Israeli Police. …

The World’s Seventh-Largest Arms Exporter


Sri Lanka is only one of Israel’s many weapons buyers. The country is one of the largest arms exporters in the world.
It is the seventh-largest exporter of weapons systems worldwide, while its GDP, $350 billion, ranks only thirty-second in the world. This means that the nation’s arms industry is not just one of the export engines of the economy, but it plays a far more prominent role than in other major arms-exporting nations, which have much larger economies than Israel’s.

The armaments industry is powered by ongoing conflicts between Israel and its frontline neighbors. They develop, test, and deploy some of the world’s most advanced weapons systems, which maximize the death and suffering of its enemies. Then it turns around and exports not just the weapons systems, but the suffering they cause.

In effect, just as Israel destabilizes the Middle East with invasions, assassinations, air assaults, and repeated military operations outside its own borders, it offers its clients the capability to inflict maximum damage on their own rivals and enemies. This makes Israel a major force for destabilization among the nations of the world.


Half of Israel’s overall weapons sales are to India, whose government is also engaged in an illegal occupation of Kashmir. It is the largest supplier of weapons to India as well.

When Duterte Came Shopping for Israeli Guns


Last summer, the Philippines’ president and accused war criminal, Rodrigo Duterte, completed a highly successful visit to Israel, during which he signed contracts to purchase some of Israel’s most advanced weapons. Duterte stands accused of the murder of tens of thousands of Filipinos targeted in so-called drug busts. …

There appears to be no dictator too brutal, no thug too murderous to be considered treif as far as the Israeli arms industry is concerned. …

Arming Serbian and Rwandan War Criminals


In 2016, Brown also revealed that Israel supplied military training and weapons to the Serbian war criminal Radko Mladic, who commanded Serbian forces that massacred thousands of Bosnian civilians at Srebrenica.

Yet another Israeli court refused to release documentary evidence that Israel armed the Rwandan militias, which ultimately murdered eight hundred thousand Tutsis during the 1994 genocide. Again, a court determined that Israel’s facilitation of genocide was news the world should not hear, because it would hurt the country’s reputation.  …

Myanmar’s Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya Muslims, Aided by Israeli Naval Warships
Last year, during the ethnic cleansing of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslim minority, the same group of activists led by attorney Eitay Mack brought to the public’s attention Israeli arms sales to the Myanmar military junta. The court refused to intervene to stop the trade and even refused to permit its ruling to be made public.  …

Israel Fuels Genocide in Sudan


Israel has also interceded in the Sudanese civil war, selling weapons to both sides in a conflict that has taken four hundred thousand lives.


Acknowledging, Then Censoring


The second major story that broke last month is the censoring of a Jerusalem Post article that confirmed to Israelis for the first time that the IDF has supplied weapons and ammunition to the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, al-Nusra.  I’ve reported before that the Israeli military has physically coordinated with these Islamist rebels, providing intelligence gathering and communications gear. It also built a camp just inside the Israeli occupation zone in the Golan that housed the families of Syrian militant fighters.  …

Israel has flown hundreds of air sorties attacking Syrian air bases and targeting Hezbollah and Iranian weapons convoys. Further, it has assassinated leading Syrian, Iranian, and Hezbollah military commanders inside Syria. …

Visiongain Report Claims There is Huge Potential within the $5.8 Billion Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) Market
News provided by Visiongain / Feb 20, 2019

LONDON, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ —
Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) Market Report 2019-2029
Forecasts by Product Type (High Powered Microwave HPM, High Powered Laser HPL). Analysis of Defensive, Offensive, C-UAV & Non-Lethal Applications for Leading Defence & Civilian Companies with DEW Technologies High Energy Laser (HEL), Airborne Laser (ABL), Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL), Free Electron Laser (FEL), Solid-State Laser (SSL), Tactical High Energy Laser (THEL), Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW), Laser Weapon System (LaWS) Plus Analysis of Defensive, Offensive, C-UAV & Non-Lethal Applications for Leading Defence Contractors & Civilian Companies

A directed-energy weapon (DEW) is the future weapon system that emits highly focused energy for target destruction. The potential applications of this advanced technology include anti-personnel weapon systems, missile defence system, and the disabling of lightly armoured vehicles. The use of DEW systems is much more cost effective than the massive cost associated with a single missile launch. With fast-track innovations in the military technology, such weapons are tools for future warfare.

The growing demand for non-lethal weapons is a primary driver of the market. Visiongain expects that countries such as Russia, the US, the UK, Israel, China, Japan, South Korea, India, and the UAE will increase their demand for these weapons, during the forecast period owing to the increasing extremist attacks and territorial disputes.

Such weapons have a number of advantages such as enhanced accuracy, reduced violence, limited damage, and multiple target attack. The integration of directed energy in chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) defence helps in effective limitation of its impact on human lives and the environment by detecting the nuclear radiation through laser and high-power microwave systems. Similarly, the progressive demand for laser weapon systems that have enhanced attack capabilities such as accuracy and undetectable characteristic are key drivers of the market.

This report splits the Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) market into two product type submarket categories: high-powered microwaves and high-energy lasers. Microwaves and lasers both operate on the electromagnetic spectrum, however, laser wavelengths are about 10,000 times smaller than microwaves, which means high-energy microwaves are more suited to emitting pulses of radiation at a wide angle, while high-energy lasers direct more focused beams of lower-powered energy using one of two mechanisms: chemical fuel or electric power.
