Beginning with the use of nuclear energy for military purposes, mankind has entered a seemingly endless race to harness the natural forces within the planet, in the atmosphere and in space for waging war. The earth is already gravely affected by many of those secret research and testing programmes leading to unpredictable environmental and epidemiological consequences.

The term ‘exotic weapons systems’ includes weapons designed to damage space or natural ecosystems (such as the ionosphere and upper atmosphere) or climate, weather, and tectonic systems with the purpose of inducing damage or destruction upon a target population or region on earth or in space.

The ‘permanent US war economy’ of the USA traces its roots in organisations and “a culture of death” back to the China opium wars, and through the current Iraq war. Samuel Russell, the primary American opium smuggler, acquired a vast fortune by launching the first clipper ship in 1823. Leading British and American families made vast fortunes with clippers smuggling opium from Turkey and India to China.

The illicit proceeds of expanded drug-trafficking today are proliferating wars and influencing the foreign policy of modern nation-States. Many researchers tie former President George H W Bush to the CIA as far back as the 1950s, and indicate that one of his jobs was to consolidate and coordinate the world’s biggest industry—the global narcotics trade. The Vietnam ‘war’ may have been a cover for US consolidation of the ‘Golden Triangle’, formerly under the control of the French. This seems to have been confirmed by Ross Perot when he was appointed by President Reagan to be a special presidential investigator looking for POWs and MIAs from the Vietnam ‘war’, and found himself on the wrong side of Vice President George H. W. Bush. In the revealing book about the abandonment of POWs/MIAs, Kiss the Boys’ Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POWs in Vietnam, Monika Jensen-Stevenson writes:

Relations between Bush and Perot had gone downhill ever since the Vice President had asked Ross Perot how his POW/MIA investigations were going.

“Well, George, I go in looking for prisoners”, said Perot, “but I spend all my time discovering the government has been moving drugs around the world and is involved in illegal arms deals ... I can’t get at the prisoners because of the corruption among our own people.”

This ended Perot’s official access to the highly classified files as a one-man presidential investigator. “I have been instructed to cease and desist”, he had informed the families of missing men early in 1987.

William Huntington Russell, a cousin of opium smuggler Samuel Russell, arrived at Yale in 1832 after studying in Germany for two years from 1831–32, when it was a hotbed of new ideas. He returned steeped in Hegelian philosophy which provided the philosophical roots of fascism and communism. Granted authority to start a chapter by the mother society in Germany, he founded the first US secret society at Yale known today as “Skull and Bones”. Espionage, drug smuggling, and historically foreign-based secret societies intertwined and evolved throughout American history. Skull and Bones became the country’s secret establishment; it institutionalised the sociological excess of “elite deviancy”, with “vertical and horizontal chains of influence” providing continuity over two centuries to carry out conspiratorial schemes and permanent wars. Many Secretaries of War were ‘Bonesmen’ as well as some US Presidents. Early American Universities were often founded by opium fortunes. Even the Manhattan Project in World War II had close ties to Skull and Bones, and the nuclear weapons labs have been managed since by the University of California, which was founded by a ‘Bonesman’.

The unique relationship between Yale and the Intelligence Community had been established during the Revolutionary War through the ‘Culper Ring’, America’s first intelligence operation started by George Washington. Following World War II, the CIA was established as the top foreign espionage and counter-espionage agency. With strong ties to Yale, and Skull and Bones, it has played a powerful covert role in countries around the world. ‘Bonesmen’ share an affinity for the Hegelian ideas of the historical dialectic, which dictates the use of controlled conflict (thesis versus anti-thesis) to create a pre-determined synthesis. The synthesis is of their making and in this New World Order, the state is absolute and the citizen can only become free by worship and obedience to the state. In the new book, Fleshing Out Skull and Bones: Investigations into America’s Most Powerful Secret Society by Kris Millegan, 2003 there is evidence that these secret societies “create and play both sides in controlled conflicts to produce (desired) outcomes”:

From 1785, the origin of the New World Order can be traced to Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Illuminati and his manuscript which was accidentally discovered when a courier died en route from Frankfurt-am-Main to Paris. Original Shift in Days of Illumination, contained the long-range plans for the secret society which was “The New World Order through world revolution”. Adam Weishaupt wrote:

By this plan, we shall direct all mankind in this manner. And, by the simplest means, we shall set all in motion and in flames. The occupation must be so allotted and contrived that we may, in secret, influence all political transactions.

In 1798, Professor John Robinson who had been invited to join the Illuminati but had declined, published a book called Proofs of a Conspiracy:

An association has been formed for the express purpose of rooting out all the religious establishments and overturning all the existing governments... the leaders would rule the World with uncontrollable power, while all the rest would be employed as tools of the ambition of their unknown superiors. (Ibid)

The same year George Washington acknowledged Illuminati activity in America and believed their purpose was to separate the People from their government.

It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied with this fact than I am.

The Illuminati allied themselves with the Masons, and Skull and Bones show similarities in their practices and beliefs. The New World Order is based on a political philosophy that blends Zionism and Fascism—an ideology known generally as neo-conservatism.

The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, The Trilateral Commission—founded by Zbigniew Brzezinski for David Rockefeller—and the Bilderberg Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens.

(Dr. Johannes B. Koeppl, Ph.D. former German Defense Ministry Official and Advisor to former NATO Secretary General Manfred Woerner. November 6, 2001, quoted in The High Priests of War: The Secret History of How America’s ‘Neo-Conservatives’ Trotskyites Came to Power, Michael Collins Piper, 2004).

Today, the shadow of the architects of earlier wars, continues as a permanent war economy with proliferation of ever more horrific weapons for future wars. In the interim period between wars, the technologies developed for the last war are used to develop new weapon systems, one could call exotic weapons, for the next war. The atomic and other technologies introduced in World War II, have been secretly developed during the Cold War, into new directed energy weapons which seem beyond the realm of possibility.

It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandise and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms.

(John Stockwell, former CIA official and author)

The legacy of the weapons proliferators, drug traffickers, sex traffickers, and gambling promoters of yesterday.... continues to enrich the same families. It is a culture of death and destruction which is turning Planet Earth into a death star.


Military interest in space became intense with the introduction of rocket science and nuclear technology to the US military arsenal during World War II. Between 1945 and 1963 rocket technology and nuclear technology developed simultaneously. Nuclear weapons testing in the atmosphere, underground and underwater provided new information about the composition of the Earth’s atmospheric layers and how they function, such as the protective characteristic. The ionosphere is the most important protective blanketing layer on earth, shielding it from the solar wind and cosmic energetic particles. The existence of the Van Allen belts was discovered in 1958. The electrojet was also discovered in the ionosphere, two very large rivers of direct current electricity—a source of electrical power greater than anything on earth. Other contributions were made to scientific knowledge from nuclear bomb tests, about the lithosphere, magnetosphere, and the gravitational field, but it did not come without a price.

The atomicity equivalent (equal number of radioactive atoms) of radiation released during atmospheric testing was 40,000 Hiroshima bombs which led to a global cancer epidemic—just the tip of the iceberg, and at the bottom of the list of free radical diseases caused by internal low level radiation exposure. Dr. Rosalie Bertell has estimated that 1.3 billion people have been killed, maimed, and diseased by the nuclear weapons and nuclear power programmes. The average yearly scholastic aptitude test scores for all children in the United States declined from pre-bomb test scores of 475 to 425 for children born in 1963 at the peak of bomb testing, and never fully recovered. The WHO reported in 2004, of the countries surveyed, that the United States has the highest rate of mental illness in the world at over 26 per cent. The hidden benefit from a nation’s health devastated for decades by radiation, is huge profits to pharmaceutical corporations and to those who own them and also promote the wars—the Bush family, the Carlyle Group, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and many others.

And what was the environmental impact, known as “the Cold War Mortgage”? The US has 10,500 contaminated sites, and five “National Sacrifice Zones” which will never be cleaned up. The fishing catch in the North Atlantic declined 50 per cent by 1963 and correlated with Strontium 90 levels measured downwind in Norwegian milk. The fishing catch recovered quickly after the Partial Test Ban Treaty was signed in 1963. In the Pacific, the fishing catch declined by 65 per cent and never returned to normal levels because other countries continued atmospheric testing. China was the last to stop in 1993.

Terrell E Arnold, who has been responsible for training our most senior and most promising military officers as chairman of the Department of International Studies at the US National War College in Washington, reports that Coalition dead and wounded may actually be twice what the US government admits and that, including the effects of our use of depleted uranium and other toxic weapons, “a long-term casualty rate for American forces of 40–50 per cent appears realistic.”

(Jung Sung-Ki, “USFK Lost Depleted Uranium: Activist”, The Korea Times, December 23, 2005).

The Korea Times reported on December 23, 2005, that the US military has 2.7 million depleted uranium bombs in South Korea. It is understandable why North Korea wants nuclear weapons.

US Department of Homeland Security Dirty Bomb Cleanup Guidance published January 3, 2006 would allow radiation levels that will cause cancer in 1 in every 3 to 4 people exposed for 30 years, using National Academy of Sciences BEIR VII or EPA risk estimates.

(Nuclear Information Resource Service (NIRS), Press Release, January 4, 2006).

Since 1945, in just 60 years, Dr. Strangelove (Edward Teller) and the “Nuclear Cowboys” have poisoned the world, altering the genome of the entire planet which developed over 4.5 billion years. The new exotic weapons systems of the New World Order promise to be far more destructive to the environment and will be used to reduce global population levels and upwardly concentrate wealth.

Two recent bills in the US Congress hint at secret technologies that have been developed from research on the atmosphere since World War II. Exotic weapons systems are a reality and are intended for the militarisation of space. H.R. 2977: the Space Preservation Act of 2001, introduced in the House by Congressman Dennis Kucinich, defines weapons systems such as directed energy, plasma, mood control, mind control, psychotronics, and chemicals which can target objects, individuals, and populations from space.

The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.

(Zbigniew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages, 1971).

Senate Bill S. 517: the Weather Modification and Research Operations Board of 2005, introduced in the US Senate by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, describes development of research and technologies to alter atmospheric cloud formations in the troposphere, something that has been happening for over 40 years. But there is clearly a hidden military purpose

The military destruction of the environment and global public health during the Cold War will pale next to the devastation and destruction caused by these exotic weapons and space technologies. All of Planet Earth including outer space is now the battlefield, and its natural processes are the new weapons of war that will be used against the citizens of the world.

The threat of environmental crisis will be the ‘international disaster key’ that will unlock the New World Order. (Mikhail Gorbachev Quoted in ‘A Special Report: The Wildlands Project Unleashes Its War On Mankind’, by Marilyn Brannan, Associate Editor, Monetary & Economic Review, 1996, p.5).

US Representative Kucinich had been strongly opposed to the militarisation of space, and his bill on Space Preservation was intended as a reaffirmation of:

... the policy expressed in section 102(a) of the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 (42 U.S.C. 2451(a)), stating that it ‘is the policy of the United States that activities in space should be devoted to peaceful purposes for the benefit of all mankind’. (H.R. 2977: Space Preservation Act of 2001).

Kucinich said, “If we don’t invest, we can’t be assured that Americans are going to be involved with the commercial space ventures of the future”. He added, “We have to be very careful about any efforts which militarise space, because the militarisation of space will destroy the commercial potential of space. We spend $300 billion a year on the military, and we should be spending money on peacetime development of technology, that’s what it comes down to. I think NASA is the key to America’s future and leadership in every area of technology. You can never spend too much on R&D, because we will grow our economy through R&D”, he s
