A recent report claims the Chinese government has developed a sonic weapon, for use by military and law enforcement in crowd control. If true, it’s just in time to be tested on those unruly demonstrators in Hong Kong.
The South China Morning Post reported recently that a rifle-like weapon was under development to use low frequency sound to affect the biology of presumably non-compliant trouble-makers. Such a weapon might be able to generate focused extreme low-frequency sound capable of causing discomfort in human eyes, internal organs and brains.
If you are familiar with my blog, you may recall that I wrote back in February of this year about the Soviets and Cubans purportedly using some sort of sonic or electromagnetic weapon against U.S. diplomats to create phantom sounds in the heads of their targets, upset brain function, and create malaise and agitation in U.S. diplomats in Moscow and Havana.
In 2018 The New York Times reported that microwave irradiation of the U.S. Embassy in the 60’s in Moscow and more recently in Cuba may have caused sonic delusions or even brain damage in embassy staff and family stationed there. After detailed study of a wide-range of maladies among embassy staff, Douglas Smith, director of the Center for Brain Injury and Repair at the University of Pennsylvania said in an interview that microwaves were “a main suspect” and that his team was “increasingly sure” that some of diplomats exposed had suffered brain injuries.
Such weapons, beyond making people extremely uncomfortable, can produce anxiety, panic, pain, ringing in the ears, disorientation, phantom audio sounds and loss of sleep.
