American Guinea Pigs

The US government has used the 9/11 attacks to defend every stupid criminal thing to come out of Washington for five long terrible years. It seems now those who are running the war want to test their newest non-lethal toy on American citizens before "they are used on the battlefield."

Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne is arguing in favor of using non-lethal high-power microwave weapons such as the "people zapper" on American citizens for "crowd-control" before they are used on the battlefield. Wynne states by doing this the US would be able to "avoid questions" from the international community over "safety concerns."
"If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne.

"(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."
How is cooking the skin of humans considered a non-lethal weapon? This is just another attempt to squelch dissent that is sweeping this nation and one that clearly sends message to America: Dissent at will, but proceed at your own risk.

This is the latest in a series of government attacks that threaten the fundamental rights and freedoms without making us safer. The current administration has done everything in its power to squelch dissent wherever it has sprung up, using an array of tactics – from censorship and surveillance to detention and denial of due process. Now it seems the government now wants to practice excessive force using military grade weaponry for crowd control.

Where is our humanity? What they consider non-lethal is called high-power microwave weapons - weapons that produce a few seconds of energy powerful enough to damage electronic components and scramble computer memories just to maintain law and order.

Yet in a Washington Post poll, 30% of those surveyed couldn't come up with the year of the event.

Have we accepted the rape of our Constitution all in the name of security?
