Russian wildfires ... Display of a new weapon?

Today at work I was wondering:

With the current advances in laser technology and the precision of modern satellites would it be possible for a government to attack a country undetected in the form of massive wildfires? During the dry months, space lasers could easily start fires and huge parts of any country could be destroyed with a carefully planned attack.

Many things could be gained including:

-destabilizing a government, unable to deal with the spreading wildfires.
-putting a strain on the country's agriculture and economy.
-a chance for key installation to be damaged (nuclear plants for example).
-making money, by buying agricultural commodities beforehand.

So I am asking ATS experts, is it possible to do this with current technology and remain undetected?

China has the technology and I know the USA continue to work in this area. If and I say IF it is possible....then that would explain Russia's fires, Pakistani floods and the higher than usual heat of the ME, not to mention Australia's cold weather
Pleaseeeee summer hurry up!

Note: Portugal is dealing with some pretty big fires right now as we speak.....

I suppose that if the US has this kind of weapon, then so does Russia. Damn Ruskies always starting California wildfires.

lol, I don't know about lasers...but it's very simple to start an uncontrollable fire. Especially when there's drought and if the fires aren't handled right away. Even then, it's not challenging to start a reign of terror by fire....

Also, don't forget..the Japanese were planning to start fires on the west coast of the United States during World War II. So lasers? Not needed. But cool thought....
