Means of Information War Threaten Democracy and Mankind
(edited by John Allman)
In the report on U.S. military policy by Project for New American Century it is stated: "It is now commonly understood that information and other new technologies ... are creating a dynamic that may threaten America's ability to exercise its dominant military power. Potential rivals, such as China are anxious to exploit those transformational technologies broadly, while adversaries like Iran, Iraq and North Korea are rushing to develop ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons ... the effects of information and other advanced technologies promise to revolutionize the nature of conventional armed forces" (ref. 13, pg. 4 and 11). The military concept of information technologies is, though, kept hidden from the world general public.
In February 2000 the Russian daily Segodnya, in the article "Riders of Psychotronic Apocalypse" (1), informed that in 1996 Russian government's information agency FAPSI warned that the effect of "informational means of war" is comparable to "the effect of use of weapon of mass destruction" and produced a report entitled "Information Weapon as a Threat to National Security of Russia". In reaction the Russian State Duma and consequently Interparliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States addressed the United Nations, OBSE and European Council with a proposal for an international convention banning the development and use of informational weapons. According to the same newspaper Segodnya in March 1998, the matter was discussed with U.N. secretary general Kofi Anan, and included on the agenda of General Assembly of the U.N. Most probably the USA vetoed this proposal and in consequence the ban of informational weapons was not discussed by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
In the Doctrine of Informational Security of the Russian Federation, signed by president Putin in September 2000, among the dangers threatening the informational security of Russian Federation, is listed "the threat to the constitutional rights and freedoms of people and citizens in the sphere of spiritual life... individual, group and societal consciousness" and "illegal use of special means affecting individual, group and societal consciousness." (16). Among the major directions of the international cooperation toward the guaranteeing of the information security is listed "the ban of production, dissemination and use of 'information weapons'."(17).
Segodnya, in the discussed article, described mostly "mysterious information-psychological" means capable not only of harming human health, but also of blocking human free will at the subconscious level, impairing human beings' ability of "political, cultural and other self-identification" and even "causing destruction of indivisible informational and spiritual space of the Russian Federation". According to Russian scientist A. F. Okhatrin, those means are also capable to kill people (2). Underneath the article, Segodnya published a review of weapons affecting human psyche which it obtained from the Russian Department of Defense. Together with ultrasound and microwave weapons, there are listed "psychotronic weapons" which, in addition to having the capability of "transfering information among people", are able to act on communication and electronic systems (1).
In the Space Preservation Bill proposed by Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2001, the following technologies enabling access to human brain, human health impairment or killing of people were named: "land-based, sea-based or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of information war, mood managment or mind control of such persons or populations" (4). "Psychotronic weapon" listed in the Dennis J. Kucinich's bill is described as a weapon using "torsion fields" radiation in the book "Psychotronic Weapon and the Security of Russia" (6) by Russian scientist Vladimir Tsygankov and Vladimir Lopatin (a politician, who worked on Committees on Security in Russian Federal Republic, State Duma of the Russian Federation and the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States). Among the possible sources of remote influence on human psyche those two authors list "generators of physical fields" of "known as well as unknown nature" (14). It is well known that both KGB and CIA carried out a large-scale research of psychic phenomena in the 70's of the past century. It is not out of question that their scientists succeded in discovering the physical basis of those phenomena. Among the known physical concepts non-local electron and photon connection can be used to explain telepathy. The ability of sound and light technologies to influence human psyche is exemplified by Psychowalkman industry. The existence of the electromagnetic mind control technology is confirmed in the Conclusion of the Committee on Security of the Russian State Duma  and can be deduced from scientific and military literature.
