The Spy Business Is Booming and We Should Be Worried: Spyware and hacking know-how are more available than ever, making our data more vulnerable and the world more dangerous.
Bill Priestap, The New York Times, July 20, 2019
What is going on? Russian spies are assassinating people in other countries, directing internet companies to troll our social media and trying to undermine our political process almost in plain sight.
At the same time, agents acting at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party are stealing our proprietary information and technology. North Korean spies have become New Age bank robbers, while Iranian spies have attempted to assassinate dissidents in Denmark and a Saudi diplomat in the United States. And the United Arab Emirates has hired former government hackers to spy on dissidents and civil rights activists.
The spy business is clearly booming.
But it is not just government spy agencies. We are also witnessing the democratization of spy tools and techniques that used to be the sole purview of a highly select group of intelligence services. . . .

The claim was extraordinary.
More than 20 U.S. diplomats in Cuba had "suffered significant injuries" in a series of attacks that seemed to target the brain. Or at least that's what State Department officials told reporters during a briefing in September 2017.
A couple of weeks later, President Trump went even further. "I do believe Cuba is responsible," he said during a Rose Garden news conference.
By that time, the U.S. had pulled most staff members from its embassy in Havana and had advised U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to Cuba. There had also been reports of similar symptoms among U.S. diplomats in China. . . .

In his EIR multi-client report, Beam Weapons: The Science to Prevent Nuclear War, Dr. Steven Bardwell describes the types of beam weapons on line for development. Each type, laser beams, particle beams, microwave beams, and plasma. beams, is, Bardwell states, "in principle capable of generating th.e required power and energy [to reach and disarm its target] in a form efficiently absorbed by the missile." A beam weapon effectively disarms a nuclear warhead. A hydrogen bomb can be detonated only by an initial powerful atomic-bomb explosion capable of setting off a chain reaction in the lithium-deuterium fuel. A beam weapon, by pumping energy into the very delicately balanced triggering mechanism, prevents the initial explosion and essentially turns the warhead into a "dud." The missile, like a satellite, might fall to the earth, but it can no longer be detonated.
Scientists agree that laser-defense battle stations, even with the lowest level of laser-beam technology, can be defended from other beam weapons themselves. But a missile cannot be effectively defended from the beam without such massive protection that it would lose both the necessary speed and distance. . . .
