Chapter Twenty-eight

The Manhattan Project which developed the first atomic bomb started in 1942. The first atomic bomb was exploded on July 16, 1945 more than 50 years ago. That project started with a $6,000 funding appropriation to the Uranium Committee and ended, by 1945, at $1.7 billion ($20 billion today). The total cost of the United States nuclear weapons program since the Manhattan Project has been $4 trillion 80% of the entire national debt on the government books in 3995.345


Is HAARP another program about to plunge the world into a rash of waste and human misery?

The War Against Democracy

"The buzzwords haunting the Pentagon today are 'revolution in military affairs', The idea, simply put, is that the same technologies that have transformed the American workplace may have no less profound an effect on the American way of war. "346

This concept, "revolution in military affairs" (RMA), first emerged in a document issued by the U.S. Army War College in July, 1994 - The Revolution in Military Affairs.347


This document said a philosophy of "conflict short of war" ("terrorism, insurgency or violence associated with narco trafficking") requires new weapons and a change in public opinion. It asserts that this change in opinion does not have to evolve naturally, but can be deliberately shaped by the government. The idea is that belief systems of Americans can be slowly altered to allow the military to introduce new weapons technology which, at this time, would be resisted by most Americans.

What this book puts forward is:

"In its purest sense, revolution brings change that is permanent, fundamental, and rapid. The basic premise of the revolution in military affairs (RMA) is simple: throughout history, warfare usually developed in an evolutionary fashion, but occasionally ideas and inventions combined to propel dramatic and decisive change. This not only affected the application of military force, but often altered the geopolitical balance in favor of those who mastered the new form of warfare."

The Revolution in Military Affairs describes "people's wars", which it limits to Marxist ideologies. The phrase could be equally applied to what occurred in the Philippines and to Eastern Europe's popular revolutions in the late 1980's.

The military's writers say that there is a shift to "spiritual" and "commercial" insurgencies, which they do not define well. They imply that these kinds of "insurgencies" represent national security risks to be defended against. This may be the case but, who will decide what is "spiritually" or "commercially" correct?

The military's authors discuss emerging technologies which may go against Americans' beliefs in such things as the presumption of innocence, the right to disagree with the government, and the right to free expression and movement throughout the world.


At one point in the document they discuss the need to use new technology to keep track of Americans traveling out of the United States:

"While advances in robotics and information technologies may make it possible to perform many commercial activities with fewer employees in dangerous regions, those Americans who are overseas will be more isolated and dispersed. This complicates the main problems of NEOs (noncombatant evacuation operations): identification and notification of the individuals to be evacuated, identification of safe routes, and assessment of threats to the evacuation.


Technology could diminish these problems. In the near future every American at risk could be equipped with an electronic individual position locator device (IPLD). The device, derived from the electronic bracelet used to control some criminal offenders or parolees, would continuously inform a central data bank of the individuals' locations. Eventually such a device could be permanently implanted under the skin, with automatic remote activation either upon departure from the U.S. territory (while passing through the security screening system at the airport, for example) or by transmission of a NEO alert code to areas of conflict.


Implantation would help preclude removal of the device (although, of course, some terrorists might be willing to remove a portion of the hostage's body if they knew where the device was implanted). The IPLD could also act as a form of IFFN (identification friend, foe or neutral) if U.S. military personnel were equipped with appropriate challenge/response devices."

The most likely people to receive the implants are military personnel who will be told that this will help rescue them if they are captured. They may be the first, setting the stage for the rest of the country. Will our military personnel object? Will our defenders recognize that this is an invasion by our government into the rights guaranteed by our Constitution - a Constitution they have sworn to defend?

Another technology mentioned is a method for interfering with activities the government judges to be wrong. In the examples given, most of us would agree intervention should take place at some level. However, the methods contemplated are extreme. Will those with the power to invade the privacy of individuals do so and without just cause? Will the holders of the power be trusted by the rest of the population? The military planners anticipate a resounding - "NO"!


Therefore, they propose a series of events to shift the popular view to the opposite extreme.


They propose a revolution of society which will allow for a Revolution in Military Affairs. At this point, they lay out a fictional scenario where the illusion of the need for this kind of control could be created. In the scenario, a plan to desensitize the population to increasing control and, introduction of the new technology, through systematic manipulation and disinformation by the government is initiated. What they have put forward might even be underway.

E-Systems developed Global Positioning System (GPS)348 technologies (satellite based) which can locate objects anywhere in the world within one foot of the object's actual location. They also developed systems for law enforcement which can intercept faxed messages, telephone calls, modem transfers, and video transmissions on a single system. They developed the EMASS computers which are powerful enough to sort the volumes of information needed for tracking billions of people. They were the owners of HAARP, under their controlling company, Raytheon.

Under their nonfiction scenario the military's writers say:

"For example, remote intrusive monitoring of the financial computer networks of offshore banks could identify the deposits associated with money laundering. If desired, such accounts could be electronically emptied."

In another section, the document emphasizes behavior and attitude alteration. This is the very heart of an RMA.

"Greatly improved intelligence gathering and fusion is a primary component of the RMA, and proposed information warfare capabilities might be ideally suited for helping develop desired emotions, attitudes, or behavior."

The entire text of this little book will leave readers wondering - If this is the kind of material the military is letting out for public review, what are they hiding in those billion dollar "black budgets"?


In another section The Revolution in Military Affairs discusses the reality of the RMA:

"Even with all the constraints and countermeasures, there is some value in applying emerging technology using existing strategy, doctrine, organization, force structure, objectives, concepts, attitudes and norms. But there is another alternative: we could deliberately engineer a comprehensive revolution, seeking utter transformation rather than simply an expeditious use of new technology. However alluring, such a program is rife with hidden dangers and unintended consequences. Unlike the Manhattan Project, we are not forced to pursue revolution without considering the implications. In conflict short of war, RMA is a Pandora's box desperately in need of careful scrutiny before opening".

The National Review article quoted earlier in this chapter says that this box has already been opened and that the concept of an RMA is already occupying the best minds in the Pentagon.

The Cold War is not over, but has changed. We know that there are concerns which, being a free people, we must address and bring to the attention of others. We believe that the greatest threat to freedom is an over-oppressive and increasingly secretive government. To many, the government has shifted from one,

"of the people, by the people and for the people" to a government "of special interests, for their own benefit, at the people's expense".

What went wrong, and where it went wrong, to a large extent, is a product of the intelligence bureaucracies which thrive through one administration to the next with unrestrained growth. These secretive bureaucracies hide more and more of their secrets under a cloak of "national security", while drifting further from the principles which have allowed the United States to exist for over two hundred years. Secret government policy is not sanctioned by the free will of the population, and threatens the core beliefs of liberty, honest government and public responsibility.

The only truly free people are those who live in an open society, a society which cherishes above all the right of men and women to control and set the values that their government should reflect. These are the popularly set values which must be pressed into the philosophy of all projects, policies and programs our governments seek to project into reality.


No program should be permitted to grow out of democratic governments which does not reflect the values and will of those governed. There have been too many Watergates, Irangates, and political wars which have only served politicians and protected corporate America. Our military and economic policies are increasingly empty of the values upon which our democratic forms of government rest.

When we look at HAARP documents, we see that the military, the contractors and the University of Alaska all appear to have deliberately misled the public and elected officials.

In other projects - tike proposed nuclear excavation discussed earlier - it was the biologists at the University who objected. In the HAARP project, the environmental, biological and life sciences are again not explored enough. Given its potential impacts, the project should be subjected to continuous rigorous independent review by specialists in the life sciences and atmospheric science.


Those deriving their incomes and future positions from HAARP-type projects should not be called upon to be the guardians of the interests of the rest of the world. It is impossible for these geophysicists to have had all of the training required to assess all of the risks. This is not to say that Institute scientists are reckless in their approach, but are they fully aware of the potential environmental and health risks?

Is HAARP the beginning of the "Brave New World"?


It is time to think about a change in the way we allow our government to evolve - into oppressor rather than servant. Our system of democracy was set up to serve and enhance life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Are these dead concepts?


We think not, it is time to rise from the ashes of our apathy and take a step to improve our world.
