Within the next decade, warfare will look very different from what it is now. In fact, it will be much more devastating, even though there will be more robots and less soldiers on the battlefield. New threats are developing, where warring countries are using genetic and geophysical weapons on each other.
The Russian news media, Sputnik News, wrote,
Future weapons will be based on energy, electromagnetic, radiological, geophysical and genetic principles. There will also be special information weapons to change people's perception, completely changing their mind, the Ministry said.
Geophysical weapons that can alter the weather were already talked about in the past. People even wondered whether some hurricanes and earthquakes were "natural" disasters, speculating that it was possible to alter the climate and set off earthquakes using electromagnetic fields.
These deadly weapons of the future will target main control centers, essential facilities, technology, infrastructure and population.[Sputnik News, Oct. 2, 2015, Weapons That Could Change Geophysical Landscape, Human DNA to Appear Soon op. cit.]
The question is how much of all the warfare technology we have is going to be utilized. From an average person’s way of thinking, those who make the big decisions in our society may seem sick and insane, but from the decision makers’ point of view it all makes sense. No one basically wants to destroy the world or wipe out humanity at this point — not with the Singularity in sight. What they do want, however, is to spread rumors of war to keep people in check and in a continual state of fear and terror. On occasion, something bigger than usual will be played out in order to keep the majority of the population on the same timeline, and they do that by traumatizing us. 911 was a typical example of this. Since then, people have been constantly reminded of terrorist attacks that can strike anytime and anywhere. To control us, they don’t need to reduce a big part of humanity — the fear of being killed is enough!
