The future of weaponry won't necessarily involve higher capacity firearms, more advanced bombs or better fighter jets. It will encompass an entirely new realm of genetically-modified (GM) bioweapons that threaten to destroy the human brain and cause irreversible genetic-level damage to the planet.
This is the prediction of Russia's Ministry of Emergency Situations, which recently issued a warning about the threat of geophysical and genetic weapons that it says will have the capacity to intercept virtually all levels of life, from microscopic atoms to large-scale systems. A combination of energy, electromagnetic, radiological, geophysical and even genetic weapons will have the capacity to literally change the way people think, which is a much more powerful weapon than simply trying to kill them.
At the geophysical level, such weapons will have the ability to alter weather patterns, which we are already seeing in the form of geoengineering and "chemtrails." Geophysical weapons will also have the ability to both create and redirect major weather events like hurricanes and earthquakes, which many have long speculated about considering the government's controversial "HAARP" program (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program).
According to reports, these weapons of the future will disrupt not only economic activities like human movement and commerce, but also human bodily function. Assuming everything goes as planned, future weapons systems will have the capacity to literally alter human DNA, invoking genetic mutations that ultimately lead to chronic disease and death.
"According to the Emergency Situations Ministry, this [future weapons systems] will allow an attacker to interrupt a victim's entire control of the economy and administrative functions, as well as cause irreversible long-term destruction of territories and populations living in these territories," reports Sputnik News.
After shunning GMO foods, Russia shifts focus to GMO weapons
Russia, in particular, is concerned about its more than 4,500 "critically important" objects, many of which are located in major population centers. It sees future GMO weaponry as a threat to its long-term viability, and is in the process of developing combative technologies to protect itself against a possible attack.
The eastern bloc country has already taken steps to thwart genetic attacks via crop GMOs, which were recently banned in Russia due to safety concerns. Unlike the U.S., Russia has a problem with untested, patented food crops being introduced into its food supply without substantive evidence showing their safety or necessity.
"The question is complicated, but the decisions was made: We are not going to produce any food products using genetically modified organisms," stated Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich in a press conference last fall.
With GMO foods now banned, Russia has decided to set its sights on GMO weapons, which it worries may be easier for terrorists to obtain than nuclear weapons. It's only a matter of time, say some, before militant groups like al-Qaeda gain access to GMO weapons, which it will likely use against political targets that it deems a threat to its perpetuity.
"This is everybody's big fear," says Professor Paul Cornish, director of the research group Defense, Security and Infrastructure at the RAND think-tank. "[W]hen does al-Qaeda get to have the money and labs?"
What the West sees as "progress," Russia sees as a major threat to humanity. And this same sentiment is shared by many freedom-minded thinkers, who see genetic terrorism as a digression rather than progression.
"The technology of tomorrow, designed to carry out that behavior which is fitting of primal animals, not an 'evolved being,' is just another nail in the coffin of human civilization," wrote one Sputnik News commenter.
