He is also concerned that innocent Iraqi families and unsuspecting GIs alike are being used as test subjects for a new generation of “psychotronic” weapons using invisible beams across the entire electromagnetic spectrum to selectively alter moods, behavior and bodily processes. “Bottom line,” Hanks says about the poppers, “they are very powerful transmitters, have multi-channel/frequency send/receive multi-task capabilities, are being placed inside the area(s) where people live without their knowing it “
The Air Force and Navy have been working for decades on beam weapons that can just as easily be turned against Americans at home.
“ The ‘poppers’ are capable of using a combo of ULF, VLF, UHF and EHF wavelengths in any combination at the same time, sometimes using one as a carrier wave for the others,” Hank explains, in a process called superheterodyning. The silent frequencies daily sweeping Fallujah and other trouble spots are the same Navy “freqs that drove whales nuts and made them go astray onto beaches.”
The Gulf War veteran observes that occupied Iraq has become a “saturation environment” of electromagnetic radiation. Potentially lethal electromagnetic smog from high-power US military electronics and experimental beam weapons is placing already hard-hit local populations–-particularly children—at even higher risk of experiencing serious illness, suicidal depression, impaired cognitive ability, even death.
American troops constantly exposed “up close” to their own microwave transmitters, battlefield radars and RF weapons are also seeing their health eroded by electromagnetic sickness. It’s common, Hank recalls, for GIs to warm themselves on cold desert nights by basking in the microwaves radiating from their QUEEMS communications and RATT radar rigs
According to Army manual TM 11-5820-890-10-1, SINGARS voice and text messaging radios have a range up to 22 kilometers when mounted on a Humvee. Operating in the microwave bands between 30 MHz to 87.975 MHz, each 2320 channel transceiver radiates electromagnetic energy from base stations employing a pair of antennas placed at least 75-feet apart.
But even this is not enough to defeat the tyranny of distance. As an Army “after action” report revealed after Desert Storm, “With a front of nearly 350 miles and a operating depth of 200-400 miles long range communications became imperative.”
But the AN/VRC 46 SINGARS—essentially a military version of a mobile phone network—did not work well. “Because of the great distances involved teams were not able to maintain communications in order to relay information, request support, or be notified of additional incidents,” the report states. “The operations also saw a total break down in the ability + or all types of Communications Army wide…between the CP [Command Post] and unit teams.” [ARCENT Unit: 22D SUPCOM Box ID: BX005554]
The same communications breakdowns occurred between units during the long drive to Baghdad along “ambush alley”. The solution is to use up to 50 Humvees scattered in line-of-sight across the flat desert sands as “retransmit” stations to relay messages to distant units. Humvee and backpack-mounted SINGARS are also used extensively in Iraq’s urban areas. The result: constant and pervasive electromagnetic pollution that interferes with cellular processes in human brains and bodies.
Constant microwave emissions from ground-sweeping RATT rigs and SINGARS mobile microwave networks are much more powerful than civilian microwave cell phone nets linked in many clinical studies to maladies ranging from asthma, cataracts, headaches, memory loss, early Alzheimer’s, bad dreams and cancer.
Even more powerful US military radars, radios and “jammers” blasting from ground bases and overflying aircraft add to this electromagnetic din.
Like ocean waves “piggy-backing” into rogue giants, harmonic waves from this storm of randomly intersecting frequencies cause unintended power spikes, while creating new wavelengths of woe never before encountered by anyone on Earth.
This is bad enough. But this is also Iraq, Hank says, where ever-present sand acts as miniature quartz reflectors, unpredictably amplifying the ricocheting electronic smog so thick that if it were visible, every vehicle in Baghdad and the surrounding Sunni Triangle would be driving blind with their headlights on.
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
This is grim news to friend and foe alike—already overloaded by constant adrenal stress, waterborne pollutants, infectious sand fleas, dehydration, pharmaceutical drugs and exposure to radioactive Uranium-238 fired in “hose ‘em down” exuberance by US ground and air cannons and cruise missiles.
As Hank puts it, DU is “the gift that keeps on giving.” For the next four billion years, medical investigators say, large populated expanses of Kosovo, Afghanistan, Puerto Rico and Iraq will remain lethally radioactive from Made In America depleted uranium dust.
What kind of people would do this?
Clinical tests have repeatedly shown how microwaves “rev up” incipient cancer cells several hundred times. Triggered by nuclear radiation, and turned rogue by electromagnetic warfare unleashed by US forces, human cancer cells have been found to continue proliferating wildly—even after the power source is turned off.

Another wild card is radon, Hank reckons. Typically found wherever oil pools underground, pockets of this invisible, odorless and potentially deadly gas tend to concentrate in natural bowls between dunes and other niches out of the desert wind.
Ordered to “dig in”, grunts typically scrape a 300 to 1000-foot diameter position to a depth of five feet, Hank explained. They then spray the ground with diesel fuel, adding to the toxic effects of any radon they’ve just released. Hank claimed that during Desert Storm, his unit’s radon detectors went off even more often than the constant ringing of chemical warfare exposure detectors. [Bringing The War Home by William Thomas]
