Dear Floyd,

 First, the little nation had weaponry long before that date.  Several other nations also have some rather astounding weaponry as well.  Second, if you destroy the population, heartland, and bases of a nation, you destroy the nation, even if you do not kill a single one of its soldiers on the distant battlefield.  That is what dead-man fuzing is all about; a way for a nation with inferior strategic and field forces to yet be strong enough to force a mighty nation to "bottle up" its own fearsomely superior forces.

 With sufficient dead man fuzing of almost any kind, and teams already in place in the enemy heartland to set the weapons off, the indiscriminate use of any strategic weapon is countered by it, unless one wishes to commit suicide.  Even with vastly superior strategic and operational weaponry such as nuclear weapons, scalar weapons, etc., if one then uses that weaponry to attack and destroys his adversary, the "dead man fuzing" of the adversary is set off and one's own nation essentially disappears from the face of the earth or suffers catastrophic destruction. That is the exact theory behind the notion of "mutual assured destruction".  It is not as simple as just having superior weapons, even far superior to those of one's enemy. It's based on the old wisdom of the king cobra, mongoose, and man pitted against each other.  The king cobra can easily kill a dozen men, yet the little mongoose will kill the cobra most times they fight.  The man, on the other hand, is relatively secure against the mongoose.  So which is superior?  It depends on the specific situation.

 E.g., in the Gulf war, you will note that our forces stopped short of destroying the Red guards, even though they had them trapped.  That of course guaranteed that Saddam Hussein would remain in power, and we would not really "pull the dragon's teeth".  You will also note the careful use of the phrase that was injected: "We have accomplished our mission of ejecting the Iraqi forces from Kuwait," or similar.  Suddenly we were not fighting a war to rid the world of the Red Guards and Saddam Hussein, but an "ejection"????

 Could it possibly be that President Bush was briefed on the dead man fuzing retaliation capability of Saddam Hussein, and his capability to put at least 10 million Americans dying in the streets with anthrax alone?  And that General Schwarzkopf received the same briefing?  We will never know, because they will never tell us.  The answer "no" to a direct question about such a briefing is immaterial; that's the same answer Eisenhower did when Powers' plane was shot down over the Soviet Union by the Russians in 1960, and Eisenhower was questioned whether it was a spy plane, remember?  They had President Eisenhower lie to the whole world, right on camera and the microphone.  Of course Khrushchev had set him up, having captured the pilot alive, and he called Eisenhower's bluff and placed Powers on exhibit for all the world to see.  In large strategic matters, it seems that lying to the public is sometimes considered necessary, and is regarded as part of a "deception plan" to fool the enemy.  It sometimes backfires on those high officials having to do the lying, though, as it did upon President Eisenhower.

 The undeniable fact is that Saddam Hussein's fleeing forces were hemmed in, and those Red Guards could have been destroyed in 48 hours, tearing the military force support from Saddam Hussein, so that his overthrow would have followed shortly.  So for whatever reason, we managed to "snatch a kind of defeat" from the jaws of victory, so to speak.  It may have been because of the unacceptable dead man fuzing response in American cities that Hussein was capable of unleashing with a single command.

 At any rate, many conventional analysts are convinced the ground forces were committed in the Persian Gulf primarily to secure the oil.  Quoting Miller and Mylroie: "President Bush offered several explanations of his decision to send ground forces to the Persian Gulf, a decision he made without consulting either the American people or their designated representatives.  After trying out several variations on different themes, he settled on the deployment as a means of preserving 'our very way of life'. … He could have put it more directly: Americans went to the Gulf for oil, on which our 'very way of life' so greatly depends.  … President Bush .. acted because Saddam Hussein, this particular thug, chose to swallow up Kuwait, that particular defenseless country, in the part of the world that happens to contain 40 percent of the planet's petroleum reserves."  [Judith Miler and Laurie Mylroie, Saddam Hussein and the Crisis in the Gulf, Times Books, Random House, 1990, p. 216, 220.]  In my opinion this is true, but still does not explain why the sudden decision was made not to remove the "thug" since his forces were in the grasp of Schwarzkopf.

 And yes, in case it makes any difference to anyone, I personally approve of President Bush's decision to prevent seizure and/or domination of the MidEast and its oil by Iraq.  Had he not moved, the recent energy crunch in California pale by comparison to what would have happened to the entire U.S.  An economic collapse of the U.S. would have been almost inevitable at Saddam Hussein's hands.  Strangle the oil, and you strangle America and much of the West as well.  That's one neat little way for a power-seeker such as Saddam Hussein to bring a Goliath such as the U.S. to its knees.  Another is to install sufficient dead man fuzing in Goliath's home.  Both are better yet, as far as the dictator thirsting for overthrow of the U.S. is concerned.

 Consider this fact.  After the Gulf War, the UN inspection teams found weapon grade uranium residues in some of the calutrons, before the Iraqis moved them.  I personally was producing an official threat document for one of the MidEast nations before, during, and after the Gulf War.  Our study concluded that Saddam Hussein already had made enough enriched uranium to make from 5 to 7 atomic bombs of his own.  He moved the calutrons to an undisclosed location before full inspections could be performed.  He has very probably continued to enrich uranium, and should have enough enriched bomb-grade uranium at present for perhaps  three dozen atomic bombs.  At the same time that President Bush's decision to halt Schwarzkopf and not allow the total destruction of the Red Guards was suddenly made, Saddam Hussein already had hostile teams on site in the large population centers of the U.S.  These teams had anthrax and biological agents, as well as chemical agents, and they may even have had a few clandestine nuclear weapons on site also.  Also at the same time, those same large population centers of the U.S. had large (not little suitcase size!) Russian nuclear weapons hidden in them, again with Spetznatz teams ready to unleash them.  Lunev, e.g., tells us how they brought these weapons in.  Quoting directly from Stanislov Lunev and Ira Winkler, Through the Eyes of the Enemy: Russia's Highest Ranking Military Defector Reveals Why Russia Is More Dangerous Than Ever, Regnery, Washington, D.C., 1998:

 p. 22: "Though most Americans don't realize it, America is already penetrated by Russian military intelligence to the extent that arms caches lie in wait for use by Russian special forces — or Spetznatz."

 p. 26: "It is surprisingly easy to smuggle nuclear weapons into the United States.  A commonly used method is for a Russian airplane to fly across the ocean on a typical reconnaissance flight.  The planes will be tracked by U.S. radar, but that's not a problem.  When there are no other aircraft in visual range, the Russian airplane will launch a small, high-tech, stealth transport missile that can slip undetected into remote areas of the country.  The missiles are retrieved by GRU operatives.

            Another way to get a weapon into the country is to have an 'oceanographic research' submarine deliver the device—accompanied by GRU specialists—to a remote section of coastline.

            Nuclear devices can also be slipped across the Mexican or Canadian borders.  It is easy to get a bomb to Cuba and from there transport it to Mexico.  Usually the devices are carried by a Russian intelligence officer or a trusted agent."

 To show just how easy it was to purchase nuclear arms from Russia after the collapse of its economy, here is one incident Lunev tells us about:

 p. 17.  ""…Ludwig Feinberg, a Russian mobster, purchased a Piranha-class nuclear submarine from the Russian Naval Base in Kronstadt for $5.5 million.  The submarine was to be disguised as an oceanographic research vessel, but would, in fact, transport cocaine to ports in North America.  To facilitate his plan, Feinberg signed a Russian admiral to a two-year contract.  Feinberg was arrested in the United States on other charges, and his submarine deal collapsed."

 One wonders how many other such purchases did not fall through.  The Russian Mafia is the power in Russia today, and is growing rapidly in the United States and in Israel.  Here are additional quotes from Lunev:

 p. 14.:  "The Soviet Union did not collapse because of 'reform minded leaders' or because of the Reagan administration's brilliantly aggressive strategy (though that strategy played a part).  The truth is that the Russian mafia caused the collapse.  Soviet 'reform' was nothing more than a criminal revolution."

 p. 12: "When the Soviet Union collapsed and its industries were privatized, there was only one group within Russia with the money to buy the new industries, and that was the Russian mafia.  But the mafia did more than buy the industries — it bought the government."  [And we thought that the lobbyists buying our politicians were bad!]

 p. 28:  "Officially, Gorbachev killed all research into chemical, biological, and other weapons systems.  Ironically, Yeltsin also had to issue a decree killing these programs years later.  Recent defectors, however, tell that the research into all these programs is continuing." 

 Comment: one of those neat little biological agents developed by the Russians was and is a modified smallpox agent, immune to the present vaccine.  A great many persons now are not vaccinated against smallpox anyway.  The pitifully small vaccine stocks that are left, in case ordinary smallpox were unleashed, are leaking and most is unfit for human use.  How bad is that?  Unleashing smallpox (even the ordinary kind) in a single large city will eventually kill off nearly one third of the human population on earth. Check it out; see Garrett:  "Were a terrorist to disperse the smallpox virus, for example, populations that were once universally vaccinated would now be horribly vulnerable.  Today the U.S. government stows only about 15.4 million doses of the smallpox vaccine—enough for less than seven percent of the American population.  The World Health Organization (WHO) keeps another 500,000 doses in the Netherlands, and other national stockpiles total about 60 million more doses of varying quality and potency.  If the smallpox virus were released today, the majority of the world's population would be defenseless, and given the virus' 30 percent kill rate, nearly two billion people would die."  [Laurie Garrett, "The Nightmare of Bioterrorism," Foreign Affairs, 80(1), Jan./Feb. 2001, p. 76-89.  The quote is from p. 77.

 Again, Lunev, p. 32: . "In the early 1990s, the GRU decided that it would train any terrorist group that was able to pay for it.  If they are politically aligned with Russia, all the better.  However, that is not a requirement."

 p. 161-162:  "….the Russian mafia will become a major problem around the world.  They will infiltrate any profitable market and are ruthless criminals.  They have set up major operations in New York, California, and Florida.  Russian émigrés provide them with a vulnerable community to exploit and gain a foothold.  Then they expand.  Only a strong and diligent government can control their spread.  The FBI will have its hands full."

 We note that the Russian Mafia has already become a great headache in Israel, stuffing a great deal of laundered money in Israeli banks.  It was so bad that the Israelis quintupled the staff of their counterintelligence agency seeking out such penetration and money-laundering.

 So all the terrorist groups that wished biological agents, chemical weapons, etc. have them now, with high probability.  Much of those arsenals of weapons of mass destruction have been infiltrated on-site into the U.S. by several nations hostile to the U.S.  For decades, e.g., Castro has run guerrilla and agent training camps in Southern Mexico, and the majority of the graduates have been infiltrated into the United States across the Rio Grande.  Perhaps 5,000 are here, waiting for the command to blow up key bridges, power distribution lines and centers, key dams, refineries, pipelines, etc.

 In short, as we said in other papers:  The first phase of World War III has already largely been accomplished.  That is, the first phase is the delivery of the strategic weapons on site to the target in the adversary's homeland.  The second phase is to set them off on order.  The world is actually a giant powder keg, with the clock on the timer ticking away.  We are and have been in the first phase of WW III for some time, and the news media and populace are not even aware of it.

 That is really what the term "dead man fuzing" is and implies.  Dead man fuzing has been elevated to the major way to conduct strategic war, or certainly one of the major ways to do so.  It is not all just "superweapons".  As has been said, the poor man's atomic bombs are those other weapons of mass destruction such as chemical, biological, etc. weapons.

 In the U.S., we have already been "seeded" by both the strategic nukes and the poor man's "nukes", so to speak, and the superweapons have also been gingerly tested against us, as essentially confirmed by then Secretary of Defense William Cohen in 1997.  Quoting: "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts."  [Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn.  Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997]. 

 Unknown to the SecDef, at the very moment he was making that statement in Georgia, KGB strategic forces were standing down from a full-bore superweapon strategic attack that had been scheduled to be unleashed on May 1, 1997, three days later.  Do not ask me a question about that for I will not answer.  But it is 100% true.  That was the second such full-up strategic attack that had been scheduled against the United States that year, both of which were forced to be aborted and not launched.  A third giant attack force abuilding apparently was later destroyed on site in Russia.  It never made the papers and it never will.  The acceptance tests for that weapon system consisted of the instant seizure and control of Captain Button in his A-10, and flying him around for one hour, until he finally crashed and died in the crash.  A second was against Captain Svoboda in her A-10, climbing out of ordnance release on the range target at night.  Her sense of up and down were flipped, causing her to instantly react to "pull up sharply and climb", so that she suddenly dived headlong into the ground and died in the explosion.  A third was against Captain Hess, who went for his morning jog, sudden peeled aside, sat down, and stabbed himself repeatedly in the torso, more than one penetrating the heart. For some of this, see my article, "Mind Control and EM Wave Polarization Transductions, Part I", Explore, 9(2), 1999, p. 59; Part II, Explore, 9(3), 1999, p. 61; Part III, Explore, 9(4,5), 1999, p. 100-108.  Even so, a combination of judicious forcible intervention and dead man fuzing prevented these strategic attacks from being launched.

 The Congress's Office of Technology Assessment studied what would happen if a professional anthrax attack were placed on Washington D.C.  One would use a Piper-Cub sized airplane, with a simple cheap agricultural sprayer, two men (one to fly, one to spray) and 100 kilograms of anthrax spores.  Then just putter around over Washington, D.C. on a calm night with little or no wind.  The plane lands and the terrorists vanish back into the shadows from whence they came.  The first sign that anything is wrong, will be when loads of people start coming down sick with the symptoms of anthrax.  That simple thing will produce 1 to 3 million U.S. casualties, in that single city alone, by the official OTA study. 

 It's even worse.  If the QP weapons (already tested in this mode over the U.S.) are used to lower the immune systems of the targeted population, then from 3 to 5 times as many casualties will result from that same attack.  In short, from 3 to 15 million U.S. citizens will lie dying of anthrax very shortly, in that single city alone.  And 5 to 10 cities could easily be simultaneously targeted and hit.  A total of, say, 20 terrorists with some back-up support.  And a total of from 5 to 10 kilograms of anthrax spores. Pound for pound, the anthrax gives far more "bang for the buck" than nuclear weapons.  Far more!

 There is nowhere in our nation any real capability to adequately deal with such an  attack and the extraordinary number of mass casualties, and don't let them kid you.  Once the anthrax symptoms are evident, most of the stricken will die anyway.  There are nowhere nearly enough medical teams, antibiotics, hospital shelters, etc. available to scratch the surface.  There are absolutely no civilian personnel shelters for the populace in the cities, much less with biological agent filters.  There are no gas masks for the civilian population, and none that are biological warfare proof also.  In such conditions, two very unpleasant things will of necessity happen:  (1)  triage will apply; most of those stricken will show symptoms, and they will just be set aside and parked to die as it is nearly useless to treat them; and (2) it is almost certain that our own forces will promptly utilize some harsh chemical sprays to spray the entire city and the entire populace, in order to desperately decontaminate the city or try to.  This spray will kill the anthrax spores, on the ground and including in lungs that breathe it in.  But it is highly stressing, and will strongly stress the aged, the infirm, those with lung or breathing disorders, infants and very small children, etc.  Undoubtedly the spray will itself kill a few more civilians, perhaps (gut estimate in this case) as many as 25,000.  They have no choice but to try desperately to decontaminate the city, else the anthrax will remain and continue to kill masses of people by the million, wholesale.

 We now face the kind of decisions in our population defense, as formerly was reserved  for combat soldiers on distant battlefields.  There a commander might have to sacrifice one or two divisions to block a horrendous attack and hold it, while withdrawing and saving the remainder of his army, back to a better position to fight again.  When he issued the order, he knew he was sending those brave men -- 18,000 per division -- to their certain death.  But in so doing, he saved the rest of his army, perhaps 200,000.  Today, that same kind of horrible decision has to be made by those commanders and federal officials overseeing the defense of the American populace.  As a military man, I admit I can make such a decision for combat forces; that is one of the terrible facts of war that any military officer must accept a priori.  But it would bother me very deeply to be faced with such a decision to use a harsh spray, etc. on our own citizens, killing -- say -- 25,000, in order to save 10 million or more.  I understand the necessity for such a decision, and the inevitability, but am not sure I personally could make it.  Such are the horrors of modern war, which now has been moved from soldiers on the distant battlefield to the population centers and our civilian population.

 But as can be seen, this nation is a sitting duck for the "new warfare" (read, the new use of "dead man fuzing" war against the civilian populace).

 And there are many more ways than one to perform such "dead man fuzing".

 Wells was not so far wrong in his "War of the Worlds".  In that novel, invading and vastly superior alien forces with advanced technology weapons were defeated by tiny microbes -- by a version of biological warfare.

 And so can the quantum potential weapons, the scalar interferometry weapons, and some of the others such as negative energy EMP weapons --- now in the hands of China --- be neutralized as well.  By simple microbes, their cultivation, and a small group of determined terrorists to unleash them.

 Hope this helps illuminate the problem.  The KGB was contained on several occasions because of dead man fuzing in its own territory and dead man fuzing of other weapons that would automatically self-launch, even if the host nation were destroyed.  If the KGB had moved, it could probably have destroyed America, but it itself would have been devastated as well, with no one winning and everyone losing.  The Russians were and are chessplayers and not suicidal lunatics -- although on one occasion only the will of a single Soviet Colonel, who disobeyed orders to launch, prevented a nuclear holocaust and full nuclear exchange, after sensors and computers made an interpretative error and reported that the U.S. had launched nukes against Russia and they were enroute.   The Russians simply chose not to commit suicide, but to wait and maneuver for a decisive opening where they could strike and destroy the West while suffering only acceptable damage in return.

 The Cold War did not end, it merely changed complexion.  Simply go and count the diminishing number of U.S. combat divisions, and you will see that one major objective has already been accomplished by that changing complexion.  Once the West decides a war is over, it historically beats its swords back into ploughshares.  So give us the ending of the "war we recognize", and that is precisely what happens.

Dera Tom:

I have absolute confidence in your articles. But how can you explain this anomally
 The Russians had their system finished and in place. They tested it rigorously
against us and we didn't even recognize the tests. Assuming that "dead man fuzing"
nullified their advantage, as the world could have become unlivable, why did
they still collapse with Gorbechev leaving Russia, the empire falling apart
and he moves to the west and becomes the darling of the One Worlders. It would
appear the strategic weaponry advantage, however hugh was of little value to
them. Their economy collapsed once it no longer had the push of government/military/KGB
control of what was essentially a military economy. The KGB control has never
ended and you would have thought they would have put us into the stress of an
underground war, so to speak. They could have set off the suitcase bombs, the
anthrax attacks, etc, and destroyed us as a free nation at any time until either
we had some missile defense which we apparently did with HAARP or something
else. It would seem we were very vulnerable until the little nation developed
its weaponry in 1997. They had a window of some 10-12 years where they could
have wreaked havoc upon us. Why didn't they? Maybe you are not at liberty on
these questions either, but if you can I would appreciate your thoughts.
