Yes, it's an obsession ! Sorry, I can't belive somethings they want me to believe, and I can know what they are trying to do...
And they say Non-lethal weapons ?!
This paper is the second in a series of three reports on United States government research on chemical and biological non-lethal weapons. Shaken by
experiences including its disastrous mission in Somalia, the US has concluded that it lacks appropriate weapons for peacekeeping and other "military
operations other than war". To address this problem, the US has embarked on a program to develop new non-lethal weapons to control both armed enemies
and civilians. Militaries and domestic law enforcement agencies in the United States and elsewhere are closely following this research and, in some
instances, are participating. The non-lethal weapons research detailed here raises questions about protection of civil liberties, particularly
freedoms of thought and expression, and US compliance with arms control agreements including the Chemical Weapons Convention and Biological and Toxin
Weapons Convention. The first report, on calmatives and malodorants (Backgrounder #8), was published in July 2001. The third report will be published
later in 2002 and will address new crowd control technologies.
