* Peace on Earth? - More on Non-Lethal Weapons - Dr. Eldon Byrd (25/12/02)
Peace on Earth?

A few minutes ago, up here in Belfast City Library, I chanced to turn to the Amnesty advertisement in the current edition of the NEW YORKER (Dec. 23 and 30th, 2002), pages 77 to 80. Its first page reads, "IMAGINE (all the people living life in peace)". The next page contains the photo of an old woman standing at the entrance of her war bombed European home and the caption below it is, "(all the people sharing all the world)". The text below this carries--unintended perhaps, given the NEW YORKER matrik for Amnesty's advertisement--a stinging rebuke of the devastation to some of our world citizens that the U.S. leadership is now intend on carrying out. Some of them should feel considerable shame at what they are bent on, if they were reminded of these words:

Out of the ashes of World War II, as the death toll was still being counted, a remarkable woman imagined a universal standard of human rights for all the world's governments and their citizens.

The woman was Eleanor Roosevelt, and her vision helped inspire the Universal declaration of Human Rights. Adopted by the United Nations in 1948, it remains a basis of international human rights law--'that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.' Years later, another visionary added his own elegant prescription for peace on earth. John Lennon's anthem, 'Imagine,' expressed a desire shared by many around the globe, if their leaders would only listen. 'Imagine all the people sharing all the world.'

Today at the dawn of the 21st century, and in the wake of 9/11, Amnesty International not only imagines, but insists, that such a just and peaceful world is still possible. But only if we act." Amnesty's four page advertisement in the NEW YORKER closes with the hopeful words: "And the world will live as one."

How? By SHARING of course. I would also like to point out the quote from Rev. Martin Luther King chosen by SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH FAMILIES FOR PEACEFUL TOMORROWS (www.peacefultomorrows.org)in their pamphlet:

"Wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows."

More on Non-Lethal Weapons

Two weeks ago, I reported upon the billions of dollars that the Department of Defense is spending upon new military techniques. I introduced the movement to stop the militarisation of space that has been put forth by Congressman Dennis Kuchinich and many scientists and activists. Part of the potential legislation speaks to the restriction of non-traditional weapons that utilize directed energy beams. While this might sound like science fiction, the reality is that our government and others has been quietly financing means to control population.

While incredulous, after putting myself in the shoes of a government, it would make perfect sense to continue to develop weapons. Guns only go so far, and the threats of bombs do not directly address the mostly behavioral problems faced by governments. After reading a giant report for the European Union written by the Omega Foundation (a human rights watch organization) I understood that nations are looking for new means for policing, not only their own people, but under the power of the United Nations, the world as well. Most of these "less than lethal" weapons are forms of tear gas, rubber or plastic bullets, blunt trauma crowd dispersal grenades, and sticky foam, but some are even scarier.

This week, we will explore this topic more, looking how non-lethal weapons (NLW) are not meant to kill but do perhaps even worse harm. One Army weapon, as presented in a 1997 "Future of Non-Lethal Weapons" conference, used "mechanical pressure wave generation" to "provide the war fighter with a weapon capable of delivering incapacitating effects, from lethal to non-lethal." These acoustic weapons can cause serious harm, according to expert Bill Arkin, causing cavities in human tissue and rupturing organs.

Additionally, as reported in an article by Hwaa Irfan, the States' military complex is looking at the newest research in the Psychological Operations, PSYOP. One of the techniques being developed uses magneto encephalography, or MEG. This is the study of the human brain's magnetic fields, pioneered by David Cohen at Massachusetts Information Technology in 1968. As quoted by Ifran, Captian Paul Tyler of the U.S. Air Force wrote in 1984 "The body is basically an electromagnetic system...over the past decade, researchers have devised many mathematical models to approximate the internal fields."

In the Winter edition of Earth Island Journal, there is a large article about NLWs, and a list of some of the future weapons. Besides the sound generators, author Garth Smith outline microwave disabling systems, along with magnetosphere guns that deliver what feels like a blow to the head. Much of this research has been "undertaken in .... Oak Ridge, Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos."

When I spoke to Leuren Moret, a geoscientist who is currently campaigning in Japan about NLWs, she confirmed that report. Moret, who used to work at Lawrence Livermore, believes that these weapons are already being tested in the Gulf War and in riot prevention. "The Russians have tested this technology, and they discovered that at certain frequencies they can control all body functions. It can cause people to throw up, disorientation, massive headaches."

These types of psychological weapons in general can control balance, cause involuntary defecation, create epileptic fits, and make an individual hear voices in his head.

Already, Time magazine published sketches of a directed energy device that rides atop a Humvee. The Air Force Research Laboratory has already spent $40 million on just this device.

This trend partially came from the insistent, greedy hands of the military complex. Additionally, it is fueled by a nation that fears many. We need to question why we need to further laden taxpayers with debt for necessary, really non-lethal things like schools and homeless shelters, and yet we spend hundreds of billions a year on war toys.

Truth really has become stranger than fiction. This year, don't pay half your taxes-you'll cut out the amount that goes to new weapons. Such as these.

Informant: Lyn Milnes


In 1989 the Fetzer Foundation of Michigan was the location for the Fetzer Declaration signed by some scientists. This statement said they would not use their scientific knowledge to create weapons.

Dr Eldon Byrd has been brave enough to speak out in the public interest.

The following news on Dr Eldon Byrd's health and circumstances was sent out by Sueann Campbell and I am forwarding it.

Lyn Milnes

Dr. Byrd is ill and broke. He had a patent and licensed it to a company to be produced and they sat on it for the last few years, refusing to produce the device. He is ill now and in need of contributions and prayer. His address is:

Dr. Eldon Byrd
Box 255
English, IN 47118

He has endorsed CAHRA's work:

From 1980 to 1983, Dr. Eldon Byrd ran the Marine Corps Non-lethal Electromagnetic Weapons project. He concluded the following:

"By using very low frequency electromagnetic radiation-the waves way below radio frequencies on the electromagnetic spectrum-he found he could induce the brain to release behavior-regulating chemicals. "We could put animals into a stupor," he says, by hitting them with these frequencies. "We got chick brains-in vitro-to dump 80 percent of the natural opiods in their brains," Byrd says.

He even ran a small project that used magnetic fields to cause certain brain cells in rats to release histamine. In humans, this would cause instant flulike symptoms and produce nausea."

In August, he conducted a scientific experiment to replicate the recording of voices that victims are hearing:

He also submitted Letter of Corroboration of NIH Md. Statement About
Mind Control: http://www.dcn.davis.ca.us/~welsh/byrd2002.htm

Hopefully, some folks can find a few dollars to help a kind and wonderful man who is instrumental in helping our cause.

God bless Dr. Byrd
