Some Aspects of Anti-Personnel Electromagnetic Weapons

Synopsis prepared for the ICRC Symposium The Medical Profession and the Effects of Weapons

by David G. Guyatt

Special to ParaScope

As the threat of global warfare diminishes and the cold war slowly fades into history, more government and law enforcement resources are being re-allocated to fight the "enemy within." And a new class of weapons is being developed to fight "bloodless" battles, fry computer circuitry and control human minds en masse. ParaScope presents David G. Guyatt's overview of the history of electromagnetic weapons, prepared for the Red Cross (ICRC) symposium "The Medical Profession and the Effects of Weapons." Get the scoop on this ominous trend towards a "psycho-civilized society," from early Japanese attempts to manufacture a "death ray" to current law enforcement expenditures on "less than lethal" EM arsenals.
