They mostly come at night – the attacks from Cuba. Mostly. And many victims never noticed anything odd while others noticed a strange vibration or sound.
It all started in the fall of 2016. Several of the affected diplomats were recent arrivals at the embassy, which reopened in 2015 as part of Barack Obama’s reestablishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba. The Daily Mail reported that one diplomat described being jolted awake in a Havana hotel room by a grinding, blaring cacophony. When he moved a few feet across the room, the noise stopped. When he got back into bed, the agonizing sound hit him again; as if, he told doctors, he had walked through some invisible wall cutting straight down the middle of his room.
Whether they heard anything or not, the consequences have been unmistakable — symptoms ranging from nosebleeds, nausea, dizziness and severe headaches to mild brain damage and permanent hearing or memory loss. Oddly, as soon as some of the victims left Cuba, they stopped hearing noises. – Daily Mail
Or, as some say, maybe it isn’t as odd as we’d expect given the astonishing explanation that has surfaced as to why at least 21 U.S. diplomats, as well as others from Canada, have been brought low while serving in Communist Havana. Although America hasn’t officially pointed any finger at the likely culprit, Washington believes they were victims of a secret sonic weapon blasted their way by the Cuban government.
After months of investigation, U.S. officials concluded that the diplomats had been exposed to an advanced device that operated outside the range of audible sound and had been deployed either inside or outside their residences. It was not immediately clear if the device was a weapon used in a deliberate attack, or had some other purpose.
No one has lost their life because of this “sci-fi sonic weapon,” but the effects have been dramatic. Months later, some of the victims are still struggling to concentrate or even recall common words. This evidence of long-term mental damage has hardened the U.S. attitude against Cuba. Now, the repercussions are being felt in diplomatic shockwaves powering across the Caribbean sea in the direction of the Communist state. It may get real ugly real soon.
This scandal now threatens to derail all efforts made at improving relations with Cuba.
[Over] the weekend, the U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, revealed the Trump administration was taking the controversy so seriously that it was considering closing its embassy in Havana. Some U.S. senators have gone further, demanding that the government also kicks out every Cuban diplomat in America (the U.S. expelled two in May as a protest over the scandal). – Daily Mail
Several other experts are skeptical still as to this type of weapon’s existence. “There isn’t an acoustic phenomenon in the world that would cause those type of symptoms,” Seth Horowitz, a neuroscientist and author of the book “The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind,” told Business Insider via email. It “sounds like a science experiment,” James Carson, former head of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, told The New York Times.
Toby Heys, the leader of Manchester Metropolitan University’s Future Technology research center is also skeptical. He told New Scientist that it’s possible for something emitting infrasound (vibrations at a frequency below what humans can hear) to cause hearing loss. But Heys said that would require large subwoofers, making covert deployment unlikely. Ultrasound devices, which operate above the range of human hearing, exist and could damage the ears, Heys said. But these sonic weapons would need to be directly targeted into the ear. “Overall, I would be pretty circumspect about the claims, to be honest — it is all very Philip K. Dick territory,” Heys said. “That said, we are living in a fairly surreal world right now.”
In the meantime, president Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are taking these allegations of acoustic weapons very seriously.
I’m not surprised by this at all. Typical BS from the Castro regime. We should just cut relations with them and bring our people home from Cuba.
Are we to believe that a poor Third World nation like Cuba has the technological wherewithal to perpetrate this act? Get Real.
More like typical false flag BS from America. Cuba has nothing to gain from this while Trump is looking for any trouble he can find.
Send the Obama’s down to investigate.
We should have taken Cuba back in the late 1800s, when we had the chance.
We should of just leveled the island while we had the chance.
When traveling to third world countries, rule number one, don’t drink the water. I’d start there.
I have recently read that certain TV shows overlay their soundtracks with high frequency digital signals most people don’t hear. These sounds, include digital information picked up by cell phone apps often free from these same companies, that send data back to corporate headquarters.
Recently we had little visitors that wanted to watch Disney kiddie shows. I notices high frequency sounds that were annoying me, I checked around the house and found it coming from the TV. It was the spy craft I’d read about. It sounded a bit like an old fashioned computer modem, but it operated on a much higher frequency that I could barely hear.
None of the other adults could hear it, but all the kids could. They had just learned to ignore it, the we ignore hiss on a radio. Children can often hear much higher frequency sounds than adults. I have a DVR on my TV as well as a mute button. This technology lets advertiser find out if you are fast forwarding past, or muting their commercials. Tying you phone I.D. with actual purchases vs commercials heard, golden.
This tech can be used to activate cell phones and appliances with microphones, as well as eavesdrop. There’s a lot of possible spy craft that can be done. Always beware little brother.
Beware, anything that is free on the Internet, will in all probability have strings attached. Cracks me up that “Candy Crush” and several other popular free games has built in CIA spyware.
I don’t understand why Cuba would desire to do it. Where is the gain? It is they who have been wanting normalized relations with the US because of its massive tourist dollar potential.
One plus one is not equaling two here. I smell something fishy.
Cuba is paid by certain friends. They do as they are told, if they want aid money to keep flowing.
Yes, Russia still has extraordinary global control.
I have no doubt the CIA also has extraordinary control over many US factions.
As I understand it Soviet aid ended with the fall of the Soviet Union. Money from US tourism would be extremely significant.
I heard of a weapon or read about a weapon I forget which, but anyway it was a British weapon experiment during ww2. Where they used sound, everyone in the lab got killed and their bones were fractured and some organs ruptured from the sound weapon.It had something to do with sound out of the range of human hearing. Certain frequency vibrations caused soft tissue damage, and broke bones. Spooked them I guess.This made them scrap the entire plan to develope it. Everything was locked up, and shut down.
Much like glass can be broken by sound so too can something much more fragile than it. Internally there are any number of things I can completely see happening if the right frequency and dB range is achieved, such as rupturing ear drums a soft weak thing compared to glass. For example.
Cuba has advanced science and is a world leader in health and medical science. That means they know human biology and how to mess with it. They have state-of-the-art labs and they still do not trust the US, despite what Obama said (remember, the US runs a global torture centre at one part of Cuba: the Cubans know what America really does in the world).
At this point, it is not too far-fetched to believe that the whole world is organized against human beings.
Local militarized police forces right here in the U.S. have been issued a weapon called sonic cannons. God knows what sort of sonic weaponry governments have at their disposal.
Poorly maintained, over-burdened high-power tension lines can sometimes generate waves that are so strong they can be both felt and heard. These are the kinds of problems found in countries that have not invested in properly maintaining their infrastructures. The U.S. recently received a “D-” in this area. Cuba is probably the same or worse.
High frequency sound waves and microwaves? That might do the trick?
I remember reading this story a couple weeks ago. The first thing I thought was – this is unlikely to be an attack from cuba, the background dynamics suggest the fouling of US Cuban relations to be of larger importance and likelihood.If the Us intellegence community can’t even get that right then we’re (in the US) in some serious trouble.
Don’t underestimate what sound is capable of. It can likely severely cripple a person or outright kill them. But also pointing the finger at Cuba, especially in a high tech weaponry case like this seems like foolishness.
GOOD, the treasonous boot licking vile New Babylonian filth working for the criminal treasonous United States Corporation Government from the inner bowels of the pits of hell in Washington DC deserve everything the cowardly New Babylonian trash get.
This is Ghostbuster stuff.
If the “health problems” have been experienced for many months, somebody should have been able to RECORD the sound using a newly developed device called a MICROPHONE. Perhaps US Embassy people have not yet heard of this newly developed device. More likely the whole thing is a HATE HOAX, like placing a noose on your own doorstep.
Really…Cuba is a threat to the US, quite the opposite. More like used as fake opposition for US psyop operations in the grander scheme of stacked lies for complete global conquest. Bernie Sanders a puppet for the same reason. The CIA and the fake news are the same thing. There is no truth that is printed or spoken allowed to be read or heard by the slave class known as the American people. Proof enough is the ongoing lies of 9-11. Any closer to the truth of that event that brought us the war on terror, a perpetual war state with no end in sight? Including a heavily armed police state following hyper shoot to kill dictates towards US citizens. The control is all encompassing besides stripping our right to free speech to question authority. Like the current PBS documentary on the Vietnam War, all a propaganda whitewash in the lies to paint the US effort there as a just cause. Major funders for those lies are Bank of America and the Koch brothers. You would think the Vietnamese were attacking America by that drivel. The US are mass murderers in the lust for more profit.
I agree! The US is a murderous bunch of liars.
I would think that the US used its own people as canon
fodder, one more time, as WE have this technology. All of this in an attempt to rile up the Sheeple in the US so they can make war once again and a pile of money with no regards to our children on the front lines.
Cuba is a bunch of no good filthy cunts. We should have nothing to do with those banana eating clowns.
Maybe we can get them to point the weapon at K Street in Washington D.C.. That’s where the lobbyist do their dirty work.
Would me wearing my tin foil hat keep me from being Zapped?
I accumulated a great number of discarded microwaves. I intended to build a micro wave gun. I researched it on the internet and U tube. It wouldn’t actually do what I wanted so I abandoned the idea. The scrap man or the landfill wouldn’t accept Microwave ovens. so I mashed them flat and put them inside of old vehicles and sold the vehicles to the scrap recycler. And he ran them through his shredder.
No diplomats are ever named. There have been no attacks and no victims. This is propoganda.
I follow George Carlins advice regarding what government says.
I thought the US have sound weapons to disperse unruly crowds. Probably only used it on setting one to repulse rather than on setting ten to shatter eardrums and fry brains. That can wait for later.
These guys are dumbasses. The ” symptoms” are the same as if you stand in front of a cell tower repeater.look around . where is the nearest cell tower?probably line-of-site. Officials and experts? No
The idea of very low frequency sound being injurious or lethal is not new. I learned about that decades ago and recognized the symptoms and what could cause them early on, before the idea of sound being mentioned in the news. The variation in volume can be caused by reflected sound waves being in phase or out of phase with incoming sound waves. I have some personal experience with some effects, since my ears have a lower tolerance to volume than most people and I “think in sound” rather than images (see the term “audile”. The volume of a smoke alarm can scramble my thinking enough to require me to be led out.
I see exactly zero evidence,damning or otherwise, in this article or anything linked in it, much like the damning evidence of Iraq’s WMDs or Assad using chemical weapons. Do you honestly think that dirt poor country has technology like this? I’ll tell you who does though more than likely. CIA and/or Mossad. This has false flag written all over it. Seriously people, what exactly does Cuba have to gain by this? Exactly nothing but being shit off from the world again, so….
Do you honestly think that there is not at minimun a gaggle of our adversaries and a couple desert dwelling craphole nations operating in Cuba? Most of them being fresh to the island so to speak at that? I’ll go one further and ask: do you honestly think that the Cult of Castro Commie regime would not allow them to operate doing f*** all to stop them or with arms stretched and eyes wide open take the tek and use it in field tests for one or more of these Nations?
All that was accomplished with the Cuba diplomatic and trade embargo being lifted was 1 brutal Communist regime being open for business and for mostly our enemies. Nothing new there Cuba has been in one form or another a vassal of Russia and/or China for a long while. What is outright in the face blatant no hiding who they are now is the Democratic Party and the Democratic Party President at the time doing all they could to benefit Communists, after all they are ones themselves, and the remaining Nation States under it. Even North Korea was imminsely helped by them and Obama & John Kerry vis-a-vi Iran.
The Leftist marriage of Salafi and Socialit Commies was doomed from the start for all citizens in the western world. Now Iran, N. Korea, China, Quatar, Bahrain,Suadi Arabia, Syria, Russia, Brazil, India, Pakistan and a dozen more including I guarantee ISIS are all on that Island and have cart blanche when it comes to Americans. Brain damaged, unable to speak properly and a host of other issues, still. An act of war each time. Each incident, each attack. and 1 planted Communist President and his Administration are to blame ultimatley.
