The Homeland Security Department is trying to ramp up wearable devices that can detect nuclear radiation … DHS has made a handful of awards for well-developed prototypes, of wearable products from companies including Leidos and Physical Sciences, Inc., according to a recent FBO posting. Last year, DHS made a broad agency announcement soliciting proposals for so-called Wearable Intelligent Nuclear Detection, or WIND, technology.-NextGov
DHS has been attempting to secure wearable nuclear detection devices and this is the next wave of atomic propaganda. We are supposed to be frightened by the continued miniaturization of nuclear weapons.
Conveniently, one new threat is emerging in North Korea just as the military-industrial complex is seeking a $1 trillion nuclear arms upgrade:
Here from Bloomberg in 2015:
North Korea has deployed its new road-mobile KN-08 intercontinental ballistic missile and is capable of mounting a miniaturized nuclear warhead on it, the U.S.’s top homeland security commander said.
“Our assessment is that they have the ability to put a nuclear weapon on a KN-08 and shoot it at the homeland,” Admiral William Gortney, the head of the U.S. Northern Command, told reporters Tuesday at the Pentagon. “We have not seen them do that” and “we haven’t seen them test the KN-08.”
He said “yes sir” when asked if the U.S. thinks North Korea has succeeded in the complicated task of miniaturizing a warhead for use on such a missile. North Korea has conducted three nuclear tests since 2006.
Elite propaganda? More fear-based reporting?
From global warming, to vaccines to various US war, The New York Times, Washington Post, Bloomberg and other publications participate in disseminating faux elite dominant social themes.
The dissemination used to be organized through fedgov’s Operation Mockingbird (here).
Such thematic elements are supposed to frighten people. Invariably, the solution is bigger government, either domestically or preferably through the UN. And of course, solutions are expensive. Fedgov needs to be paid. The taxpayer provides.
The nuclear meme is an obvious one in retrospect. We’ve continually dissected this popular meme in the past few months, here and here. It began even before the first nuclear test weapon in the US. The Pentagon only communicated about nuclear weapons with a single reporter from the New York Times, (here).
No other reporters received information from the Pentagon and it was later discovered this individual was on the Pentagon payroll. He called it an “honor.”
An honor? He was a cog in a vast Pentagon disinformation campaign. The Pentagon was so intent on controlling the nuclear narrative that along with Japan it helped pass laws that made it a capital crime to report on nuclear weapons and even to discuss them.
It seems obvious that we are being lied to systematically about nuclear weapons, or weapons of mass destruction as they are now being called. We’re fairly sure Hiroshima was firebombed, in addition to any nuclear device that was supposedly dropped on it. Also, the initial damage to Hiroshima and Nagasaki was much less than advertised (here).
At least one bombing division of 66 bombers on August 6 was likely diverted from its original target to firebomb Hiroshima. In fact, it makes no sense that this bombing division would have bombed its target – already flattened – for a third time.
Even given that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed by “atom bombs,” lies still cluster thickly around the Pentagon nuclear program. Every bit of nuclear test film apparently went through Los Angeles-based Lookout Mountain, (here). Film was manipulated, enhanced and even reconfigured.
But if you look at the film today, it’s hard to find any believable footage. Almost always the missile or plan streaks into the sky but one never sees the entire graphical narrative. Films inevitably cut away and the explosion is seen separately.
Even foreign films of nuclear explosions seem faked. And we have pointed out that it is perfectly possible for the Pentagon to mimic a nuclear explosion using large amounts of TNT. You can see one such mimicked explosion here. Who is to say there are not other ones?
The latest narrative to emerge from the Pentagon regarding nuclear weapons is that people are in danger of being blown up by “miniaturized” weapons.
Here, from the New York Times in January 2016:
As North Korea dug tunnels at its nuclear test site last fall, watched by American spy satellites, the Obama administration was preparing a test of its own in the Nevada desert.
A fighter jet took off with a mock version of the nation’s first precision-guided atom bomb. Adapted from an older weapon, it was designed with problems like North Korea in mind: Its computer brain and four maneuverable fins let it zero in on deeply buried targets like testing tunnels and weapon sites.
And its yield, the bomb’s explosive force, can be dialed up or down depending on the target, to minimize collateral damage. In short, while the North Koreans have been thinking big — claiming to have built a hydrogen bomb, a boast that experts dismiss as wildly exaggerated — the Energy Department and the Pentagon have been readying a line of weapons that head in the opposite direction.
… The B61 Model 12, the bomb flight-tested last year in Nevada, is the first of five new warhead types planned as part of an atomic revitalization estimated to cost up to $1 trillion over three decades.
As a family, the weapons and their delivery systems move toward the small, the stealthy and the precise.
North Korea’s discovery of miniature nuclear weapons along with other threats of nuclear miniaturization are certainly an advantageous occurrence for the Pentagon. They provide justification for Congress to vote the Pentagon as much money as it needs.
Conclusion: Exactly how much of the nuclear narrative is actually legitimate? There is yet no way of knowing because the Pentagon remains in charge of the information that emerges about the program. Even the “tests” are top secret. Until this changes, the true breadth and validity of the US program cannot be known. We will have to take the Pentagon’s word on it. Of course, the Pentagon is not always truthful. In fact, it recently emerged that top brass had mislaid some $8 trillion (here).
