WAR: Brain will be battlefield of future
Millions of dollars will be spent over the next few years on 'medical research' as pharmacological land minds and bullets are developed to incapacitate the brains of enemies. The powers that be will be and are labelling such research as 'medical' but this is just as surely chemical warfare as napalm ever this approach just redirecting the target inside the body rather than its surface.The report by the Defense Intelligence Agency also points the way to using these technologies for mind control of drones in the battle zone and in new torture possibilities. Meanwhile research into some very common diseases that kill millions in developing countries gets limited investment. Where there's war there's brass and yes there may be some genuine health breakthroughs as byproducts of this warmongering investment in 'medical research' but warfare is terrible and chemical warfare is at the moment against international law. Scientists in their quest to discover have lent there effort to the production of waepons of mass destruction and here again we'll see I'm sure many eminent scientists and doctors lining up for a pay-check to see them through their research dreams and financial ones too.
Rapid advances in neuroscience could have a dramatic impact on national security and the way in which future wars are fought, US intelligence officials have been told.
In a report commissioned by the Defense Intelligence Agency, leading scientists were asked to examine how a greater understanding of the brain over the next 20 years is likely to drive the development of new medicines and technologies.
They found several areas in which progress could have a profound impact, including behaviour-altering drugs, scanners that can interpret a person's state of mind and devices capable of boosting senses such as hearing and vision.
On the battlefield, bullets may be replaced with "pharmacological land mines" that release drugs to incapacitate soldiers on contact, while scanners and other electronic devices could be developed to identify suspects from their brain activity and even disrupt their ability to tell lies when questioned, the report says.
