Pulling the electronical plug on former 'allies'

by Henk Ruyssenaars - Foreign correspondent Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2007 at 6:57 AM

Many programs which are used in computer systems in weapons, ships, planes, tanks, satellites etc. lately all get a build-in 'emergency brake'. Via GPS satellites in space, the command can be transmitted to anywhere on earth, to stop. And the computer systems just go 'dead'.

FPF - 22-10-2007 - Forty years ago the CIA ordered the design for the completion of a satellite system for secret and encrypted communication with agents. Code-named Pyramider, the system at that time also employed frequency hopping. This provided the agent with large safe 'areas' in cities, where the signals could be hidden among random urban radio and other transmissions. To give an example of what than already also could be done: via the Pyramider system an agent was capable of reducing aircraft interception in remote areas to a radius of twenty nautical miles.*

And at that time in Vietnam, in the bar on the 7th floor of the Caravelle, the among journalist's popular hotel in Saigon, I got some good information and a story from a couple of 'RayBans'. Some secret service people who uniformly wore those sunglasses, and which probably had been gulping down quite some Mekong whisky, explained to me what already could be done. One of them from his attaché briefcase picked up something which looked like a big GPS receiver, and said that he could make bombs explode in say Amsterdam, Cape Town or New York, via the Pyramider satellite. He'd just have to have the right orders and commands from his superiors.

Or they could for instance be at the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia, and at the same time - to give some nasty examples from the present time 'false flag' operations by the CIA c.s. - bombs could go off in Madrid or on Bali, in London, in mosques, on markets, or on 9/11, for the 'inside job' of the 3 World Trade Center buildings. It was planned for the Mexican Congress, and so was the planting of explosives as the British did in Basra too. Whatever and wherever.* ''It's like a remote control on your TV,'' they said, ''you just push the 'command' button and, there you go! You're not even near the place of the bombing, so you have a hell of an alibi. And, as usual, the others can be blamed, that's what we pay all those compliant journalists in the media for." The CIA - just like now - had bought most of the 'talking heads' and influential 'journalists': "You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month." a CIA operative explained, discussing with Philip Graham, the also compliant editor of the Washington Post, on the availability and prices of journalists willing to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories.


During the ten years I worked in the Mideast, among other massacres covering 'Desert Storm', I often heard people at the headquarters in exile of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) in Tunis speak about another 'Zero option'. According to the people of Force 17, and PLO leader Arafat's secret service, Palestinians and others that sometimes were trained in - what they thought were 'Jihad camps', but in reality were Mossad fakes - upon leaving were equipped with hand grenades or bombs to execute attacks. Little did they know they were 'Manchurian candidates' on their way to the cemetery, and involuntarely martyrdom by so called 'suicide bombings'. The problem showed to be the fact, that those timers on the bombs and on the - mostly fragmentation - hand grenades which were very powerful, had a so called 'Zero option'. When the pin is pulled on a 'normal' hand grenade, it will allow the thrower 7 to 8 seconds before it explodes. Those explosive devices didn't. The specially made handgrenades and bombs exploded the very second the timer was activated or the hand grenade's pin was pulled. It gave the attackers zero seconds to escape, hence the name. The people involved immediately were killed themselves and went to their forefathers. In the mainstream media it than was described as a 'suicide attack' or 'a botched attempt'.*

But the 'Zero option' is further modified, and nowadays the whole system has been modernised and so much perfectioned that all those hightech systems in any kind of 'adjusted' computer, and wherever they may be, can be ordered to stop when on electronic command 'the plug is pulled'. It means that jet fighters, bombers and other planes would fall out of the air or couldn't start. Anything working on electricity, like computers and even their back-up systems, are bypassed and become instantly obsolete. But there are not many who know what electronic systems and programs, where and in what, have been programmed the 'Zero option' way: to delete whole programs. Like a washing machine can be 'prepared' and will have defects three months or so after the guarantee period has ended.


Many years ago, on the island of Oahu in Hawaii, I met a swedish 'Dr. Strangelove' who for the US government (which Sweden always has collaborated with) was experimenting with electro magnetic pulses (EMP's). This specialist, who with US-made hightech soft ware constructed the electronic overhead projectors in the swedish-made jet fighters Viggen and JAS-Gripen, said that blocking the electronic systems would have the same effect as the experiment with a nuclear EMP a long time ago had shown in Hawaii. Not only the computers, but the cars, elevators and everything else running on electricity and computers in the area stopped. Even if this "Starfish Prime" experiment concerned an explosion 800 miles away from the Hawaiian islands.

Because, like Pyramider 40 years ago, the experiments with the EMP 'Zero option' also started in the 1960's: "Because of lack of data, the effects of an EMP were not fully known until 1962. At this time, the United States was conducting a series of high-altitude atmospheric tests, code named "Fishbowl." The nuclear explosion, "Starfish Prime," which was detonated in the Pacific Ocean 800 miles from Hawaii, caused an EMP that disrupted radio stations and electrical equipment throughout Hawaii.

Consequently, in 1963, the United States and the Soviet Union signed the 'Atmospheric Test Ban Treaty' to counter the considerable threat posed by EMP's. But that treaty, like all other earlier and in better days by the US signed and sealed agreements and conventions, is forgotten now, according to the US/UK junta. A multinational and malignant group which is behaving globally as if they are above all laws on our earth which they are wrecking in their quest for power and profit. And, unfortunately, the destructive potential of an EMP increased everyday as society becomes ever more technological because of an escalating dependence on electronics. Although EMP is unlikely to harm most people, it could harm those with pacemakers or other implanted electronic devices.

An Air Force spokesman, who describes this effect as similar to a lightning strike, points out that electronics systems can be protected by placing them in metal enclosures called 'Faraday Cages' that divert any impinging electromagnetic energy directly to the ground. Foreign military analysts say this reassuring explanation is incomplete.* Meaning that it is not true.


"Rods from God" is another so called 'evolution' of a 1980s program. Basically, it consists of orbiting platforms stocked with metal tungsten rods around 6.1 meters long (20 feet) and 30 cm (one foot) in diameter that could be satellite-guided to targets anywhere on the earth within minutes, for the rods would move at over 11,000 km/hr (6,835 mph). The people, or whatever is targeted, having a 'Zero option' too.

This weapon exploits kinetic energy to cause an explosion the same magnitude of that of an earth-penetrating nuclear weapon, but with no radioactive fall-out. The system would function due to two satellites, one of which would work as a communications platform, while the other would contain an arsenal of tungsten rods. Each of the satellites would be seven meters long (23 feet) and its diameter would be approximately 30 cm (one foot). However, serious problems would arise if the Pentagon begins the operational phase - especially from a financial perspective. Some studies maintain that Rods from God could be fully operational in ten years.

The targets of the rods would be much more restricted than those of 'Global Strike'. Their main targets remains ballistic missiles stockpiled in hardened sites, or orbital devices and satellite systems deployed by other powers -- according to the counter-space operation doctrine. 'Rods from God' can, however, be employed to strike targets in desert areas - be they hardened sites or concentrated hostile forces. Its devastating striking power does not allow such a weapon to be used for other missions, if unsustainable collateral damage is to be avoided.

The road to space weaponization is hazardous. The current U.S. administration appears confident that it can handle the issue successfully. As usual, when a new category of weapons sees the light, it is not clear whether newcomers will suffer from perpetual disadvantage.


If other powers succeed in implementing low-cost orbital instruments that could endanger Washington's sophisticated space weapons, the U.S. could rapidly find itself in need of financing hyper-expensive programs designed to protect the country - a situation which could make the Pentagon regret having opened the space front to begin with. Especially now when Bush for US 'interests' has claimed the whole universe, signing another mad declaration. *

The secret present programming of computer systems in some weaponry etc. to be sold or given to 'allies' - which in the future (as so often) may turn their anger and revenge against the US/UK military-industrial-complex - and become a nasty 'blowback' - is seen as necessary and a strategic technical advantage by the warmongers.

So when planes fall like leafs out of the air, surface to air missiles go haywire or satellites stop or disappear in space, when tanks or missiles and communications don't function anymore, one of the reasons might be the new Pyramider's command: to stop it.

That command should immediately be given to the bellicose and criminal US/UK bunch too.

So they and their war crimes collaborators can be jailed for their global war crimes.
