CIA agents attacked by 'microwave weapon'

The alleged attack took place in Australia last year and has been blamed on Russian security service agents.
According to reports, the CIA officials - one of which being among the agency's top five highest ranking individuals - had been staying at a hotel room during a visit to Australia when they began experiencing a strange ringing in their ears and felt inexplicably nauseous.

The symptoms echoed those of what has now become known as 'Havana syndrome', which is named after the symptoms experienced by US and Canadian embassy personnel in Havana, Cuba in late 2016 and which ultimately caused a breakdown in relations between Cuba and the United States.

At the time, it was thought that some sort of sonic or microwave-based weaponry had been used to make the diplomats ill and this latest incident in Australia could very well be the same thing.

Adding to such suspicions is the fact that agents with Moscow's Federal Security Service (FSB) were reportedly within the vicinity of the hotel room at the time the officials became ill.
The same thing happened again when the two agents later traveled to Taiwan.

"I think what we are seeing here is something that is most likely from the Russians, who seem to frankly care almost nothing of the consequences of aggressive intelligence actions," said Peter Jennings from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.

"This is lifting the levels of Cold War-style conflict to new highs."

"If we're actually engaging in things that amount to physical assaults on diplomats and intelligence officials, that's a new thing that we've really not seen before."

Firstly, this is a diagnosis based on speculation, not medical fact.  Secondly, the weapons proposed do not exist, or would effect large numbers of 'bystanders'.  It's all nonsense.

Just published today on (October 27): “I was awoken in the middle of the night," recalled Polymeropoulos, 51. "I just had incredible vertigo, dizziness. I wanted to throw up. The room was spinning. I couldn't even stand up without falling down. I had tinnitus ringing in my ears."

A directed energy weapon can't be focused, why?
Comment icon #24 Posted by RoofGardener on 29 October, 2020, 9:12
a "directed energy weapon" could indeed be focussed. But the article talks about 'microwave or sonic'. Well, a sonic weapon certainly CAN'T be focussed. A microwave emmiter IS directional (or can be made to be), but in a crowded environment (such as a building) it (a) wouildn't have a range beyond a few dozen yards (unless it was LUDICROUSLY powerful), (b)couldn't penetrate walls, and (c) would impact on many people around the target. In addition, there is also no scientific or medical literature that matches microwave exposure with the reported symptoms.  The fact that the journalist says "mi... [More]

Rubbish? Have you been living with your head in your ....anway...this is 2020. Nikola Tesla did the first air-power experiments 120 years ago!!!  You think we haven't progressed with black op tech. that can pinpoint with laser precision? There's been tons of press about the American Diplomats who were attacked in Havannah.   Here is one    People like YOU are unbelievably annoying.

Why are people who express scepticism so annoying to you?  I mean other than the fact that you hate to have silly fantasies debunked. I'll give you a hint - you should try actually addressing what was said.  And if it's wrong, don't just get your undies all twisted - do some actual research and find out about microwaves and how they work, what stops them, and whether they would make an effective portable weapon.  And then post your research that contradicts what he said. Thing is, I disagree with some of RoofGardeners posts elsewhere, but here .. he is pretty much correct. {saracsm} Having sai... [More]

I already addressed it with the link I provided!  Did you bother to look? There were people severely affected by the attack and afflicted with the same symptoms. it's a well known story and Microwave weapons (DEW) exist (and certainly classified weapons based on the same or similar tech. LIKELY exists), just because YOU or HE are ignorant of them doesn't make the truth disappear. Go do your own damn research.

It took 3 months to reply? From YOUR link, my emphasis:   Stop beating a dead horse.

ET used a simple device to contact his home planet with just a couple of batteries.   WHAT the heck is that thing for?   Radio waves are used for communication???? or control??
