Non-Lethal Weapons in Twenty-First-Century Warfare
By Colonel John B. Alexander, U.S. Army (Retired)
The nature of warfare has changed. Like it or not, terrorism has established a firm foothold worldwide.
Colonel Alexander points out the many ways security around the world is moving from using lethal to non-lethal approaches.
One of the non-lethal approaches is to use remote viewing in order to psychically neutralise an enemy.
Steven Spielberg's film 'Minority Report' may have been seen by some as no more than science fiction. However, remote viewing, the ability to combine psychic abilities such as clairvoyance, precognition, and telepathy have already proven their worth in the real world.
Colonel John B. Alexander's concepts have appeared in Michael Crichton's The Lost World, Tom Clancy's Debt of Honor, and other books. Future War is the first book written by an expert in the field of non-lethal armaments.
Colonel Alexander participated in the landmark Council on Foreign Relations study of non-lethal weapons and chaired the first major conferences on the topic.
His extensive military experience includes commanding Green Berets in Vietnam as well as conducting research and development in advanced weapons. For five years he was a deputy sheriff in Dade County, Florida. He developed the concept of Non-Lethal Defense at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
