‘Super soldiers’: The quest for the ultimate human killing machine



We’ve seen in previous articles that the concept of transhumanism and “enhanced human” is being actively promoted in movies, music videos and video games. Here an article from the Independent describing the “enhancements” that are being planned to be given to soldiers to make them better at killing people including exoskeleton, memory erasing drugs and exposing the brain to magnetic fields. What’s even more upsetting is that the author of the article sounds actually quite excited about these “improvements” that deshumanize humans into unthinking, highly altered killing machines.

‘Super soldiers’: The quest for the ultimate human killing machine

Guilt, tiredness, stress, shock – can specialised drugs help to mute the qualities that make soldiers human, asks Michael Hanlon?

The ancient Spartans believed that battlefield training began at birth. Those who failed the first round of selection, which took place at the ripe old age of 48 hours, were left at the foot of a mountain to die. The survivors would, in years to come, often wonder if these rejects were the lucky ones. Because to harden them up, putative Spartan warriors were subjected to a vigorous regime involving unending physical violence, severe cold, a lack of sleep and constant sexual abuse.

As with the English public schools, which used similar tactics to produce the warriors who carved out the British Empire, the Spartan regime worked; the alumni were the most feared soldiers in the eastern Mediterranean. And ever since then, military chiefs have wondered whether it may be possible to short-cut the long and demanding Spartan regime to produce a soldier who kills without care or remorse, shows no fear, can fight battle after battle without fatigue and generally behave more like a machine than a man.

In the post-war era, the future of fighting was thought to be about tanks and missiles, large impersonal machines that would fight huge battles over the open terrain of Northern Europe. The soldiers would be pressing buttons in a command centre. But despite the advent of drone aircraft, much of 21st-century warfare is turning out to be a drawn-out, messy business, fought on a human scale in the mud and dust of Afghanistan. And fought against a mercurial army of irregulars who melt away into the fields and farms once the skirmish is over. Modern soldiers are not the cannon fodder of before. Highly trained and super fit, each one represents a huge investment by the nation that sends them into battle. A soldier who is too tired to fight effectively, who has gone mad or who is suffering from severe stress is like a broken-down tank, no use to anybody. What if soldiers could be made that did not break down?

The era of The Terminator, the perfect robotic killing machine, is decades away; to date, all efforts to create a humanoid robot that can climb the stairs, let alone fight the Taliban, have been risible. But scientists are reporting breakthroughs with the next-best thing – the creation of human terminators, who feel less pain, less terror and less fatigue than “non-enhanced” soldiers and whose very bodies may be augmented by powerful machines.

Efforts to understand the brain of the soldier and put this knowledge to good use have been going on for some time. Professor Jonathan Moreno, a bioethicist at Pennsylvania State University, studies the way neuroscience is being co-opted by the military. “Right now, this is the fastest-growing area of science,” he says.

The Pentagon is currently spending $400m a year researching ways to “enhance” the human fighter. The defence giant Lockheed recently unveiled its “Hulc” (Human Universal Load Carrier), a science fiction-like, battery-powered exoskeleton that allows a human to lift 100kg weights and carry them at a fast run of 16kph (10mph). The videos of the Hulc in action are truly impressive. Superman strength is one thing, but soldiers still need to sleep. In Afghanistan the average soldier in combat gets only four hours’ rest a day and sleep deprivation is the single biggest factor in reducing fighting performance. Not only are tired soldiers less physically able to fight and run, they make more mistakes with the complex weapons systems at their disposal – mistakes that can prove deadly to themselves and their comrades.

Using chemistry to attack fatigue is, of course, nothing new. Two centuries ago, Prussian soldiers used cocaine to remain alert and Inca warriors used coca leaves to stay alert long before that. Since then, nicotine, amphetamines, caffeine and a new class of stimulants including the drug Modafinil have all been used successfully, to the extent that American soldiers can now operate normally even after 48 hours without sleep. Now the chemists are trying to tweak the molecular structure of this drug so that it will switch off the desire for sleep for even longer.

Tiredness is not the only psychological problem faced by soldiers. Combat is immensely stressful and although proper training means that men and women can remain focused while in mortal danger, it is afterwards that problems begin. During the Vietnam War, one in three soldiers was treated for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and in the Second World War a significant proportion of Allied conscripts never fired a shot in anger because of stress and fear before the battle had even begun. Up to now, PTSD has been treated by a mix of psychotherapy and antidepressants – effective techniques but expensive and time-consuming. But as with fatigue there may be a chemical shortcut for PTSD.

The trick is to erase unwanted memories, or at least take away their sting. Professor Roger Pitman, a psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School in the US, has been experimenting with a drug called propranolol, a “beta blocker” normally used to treat high blood pressure, which he believes can erase the effects of terrifying memories.

Professor Pitman has given the drug to young volunteers who have suffered extreme trauma in, for example, road accidents. Those given placebos suffered nightmares, and remained fearful of the road. When exposed to recordings describing their accidents they suffered typical stress responses – sweating, beating heart, dilated pupils. But those who had been on a course of propranolol showed no response at all. It was as though the trauma had not happened. For a soldier, memory-altering drugs such as this could mean violent combat becoming no more troubling, retrospectively, than a visit to the gym. “The problem is,” Professor Moreno says, “what else are they blocking when they do this? Do we want a generation of veterans who return without guilt?” You may not even need drugs to short-out the unwanted side effects of battle. Dr Albert “Skip” Rizzo, a psychologist from the University of Southern California, has created a “virtual Iraq” video game, in which veterans have been able to re-enact their experiences to release pent-up stress.

Generals not only want stronger, more alert and less stressed soldiers; they want smarter ones, too. One of the most bizarre neuroscience findings in recent years is that by immersing the human brain in a powerful magnetic field, its powers of reasoning and learning are almost magically enhanced.

No one knows exactly how “transcranial magnetic stimulation” (TMS) works, but the Australian neuroscientist Professor Allan Snyder believes that magnetic fields in some way “switch off” the higher levels of mental processing that normally cloud our thoughts, allowing a “pure” form of reasoning to take over.

“Each of us could draw like a professional, do lightning-fast arithmetic,” he says. In fact, some subjects in TMS experiments have acquired (temporarily) similar abilities to the rare “autistic savants”, people who are able to perform astounding arithmetical feats and memorise whole telephone directories (an autistic savant was played by Dustin Hoffman in the film Rain Man).

In 2009, a US Academy of Sciences report concluded that within 20 years we could be using TMS to enhance soldiers’ fighting capabilities. As Professor Moreno says, “there is talk of TMS machines being used on the battlefields within 10 years in vehicles and in 10 years more in helmets.” Why? Being a soldier demands a high level of technical expertise. It is no longer just a case of pointing a gun and shooting. Even combat rifles are now “systems” and mastering battlefield electronics requires a lot of training.

It may seem clear that if you could create a man with no scruples, who feels little pain and no fear, you would have an excellent fighting machine, but this may be a case of be careful what you wish for. We get scared for a reason – to avoid danger to ourselves and others. Fatigue may force us to rest before sustaining damaging injury. Even post-traumatic stress disorder may have a beneficial role. Moral scruples help soldiers to act as an effective team – in battle, troops will always say they are fighting for their mates before Queen and country.

Take away the humanity of the soldiers and there is a danger that the battles and wars we fight will become inhuman as well. Most of all there is, surely, a danger that these techniques, far from producing better soldiers, will actually produce a squad of zoned-out zombies, who will be no match for the determined, driven and highly motivated zealots of the Taliban.

  1. Search for Duncan o Finioan. There are interviews online with him. After an accident memories started to pop up. He found out he's been killing people and trained as a super soldier. Scary stuff.

  2. Crazy thing…people using others to killing for a political fake motive….in some games simpacks are only to cure live…..in real live thats very more bizarre..is dificult to believe that people are so idiot

  3. I personally fell as though "man" should stop attempting to take on the role of GOD. Man himself is a flawed creature and can only strive for a "perfection" that is and will forever be unattainable in this troubled world. If man cannot create a birth control pill that is 100% effective minus the risks of blood clots, cervical cancer (in the oral contraceptives) what would make you think that this plan for "super soldiers" will ever be a total success??????……. idk…. just a thought

  4. Do a google for David Corso with Duncan O'Finioan in YouTube and listen to what they have to say. And also google Jesse Ventura MK Ultra. These men already exist and have for decades the only difference seems to be that now big pharma is more involved as well as our increased infatuation with mechanics and fancy toys.

  5. It's funny that they mention the whole PTSD thing because I recently watched a documentary that commented on soldiers and veterans suffering from it. They stated that it was common that many go untreated because they treatment methods are so "expensive" (as if this training to wipe away human emotion is any cheaper). They also said that many being treated for the disorder/syndrome were not treated until almost being declared legally insane. How torturous does that sound?

  6. Glad you're calling attention to this VC, and yes it does seem like this (among other transhumanism garbage) is on it's way down the pike… if games like "bioshock" (the game has all manner of elements from transhumanism, including but not limited to: control of people with synthesized chemicals/drugs/pheremones, genetic augmentation to make monsters, cybernetic nanite enhancements etc.) and cartoons like "batman beyond" (some episodes deal with "splicers") are any indication, we might be expecting cyborg monsters looking more like something out of a horror/surival/military game than a real person.

    As some personal confirmation, I can tell you that during my time in highschool (in the late 90's) as I was attending a computer building class (the pentium 2 processor had just come out within the last 6 months or so, if that helps with date and time.) some recruiters from the navy showed up to try to fish for kids out of the class. The interesting thing about all this was, that one student (not me.) asked a question regarding soldier-computer interface, and this is where I started paying legitimate attention, the recruiter gave the usual disclaimer about "confidential information" but made some remarks about microchips (in very early testing and development, of course) that would be implanted in the back of the neck of pilots to help inhibit fear (among other things). Needless to say I was rather surprised at hearing this, sure it may have been BS targeted to baiting kids, just for a "cool" factor. But as it stands, either the recruiter knew something, or was already briefed with a script for this sort of question… and if it was indeed a brief, it certainly was an unusual subject to give the recruiter. Especially given this being a small-town highschool.

    Suffice to say, I find stuff like this scary, a future like the anime "Ghost in the Shell" (and it's anime TV series) may look cool… but at the same time abuses of tech can lead to a whole slew of new problems that mankind is not prepared to deal with. (what are the rights of a human/animal hybrid? if a person is more machine than man, do they qualify as human? what if an artilect displays human characteristics, does it get rights? etc.) It may also interest you, VC, to look into the article series "Forbidden Gates" done by Thomas Horn, sure he may have a religious fundamentalist bent to his research, but if one can look past that, they are rather informative.

  7. What happen to the days where throwing a football around on the Holidays and riding your bike around town with friends was perfect.

    The Jolly O' Days are sure missed. I feel like we are all "plugged" in very many litle ways.

    God bless.

  8. They are already creating hybrid human/animal type beings "underground". Transhumanism experiments. I wouldn't be surprised if they are already creating a brood of supersoldier/policestate beings to bring in their NWO to a close.

    As far as the author's comments on an inhuman war being fought by these soldiers, I thought war was already inhuman.

    • Those would be "furries" yep, or rather, the sort of things that those of the subculture fandom want to be. Remarkably their subculture has had knowledge of this stuff for some time. Gene splicing, gene therapy, various other forms of augmentation and transhumanism, these are all something folks are being prepped for. (and from many angles, at that.) Could something like "Dog Soldiers" (yes, it's a werewolf movie, but the theme does eerily fit this.) very far off?

  9. Oh my goodness.. this man is practically salivating over the thought of these super soldiers! I get the feeling that this is where our 'zombie' comes from – a being that doesn't think, that doesn't eat, it just does. No feeling, no sympathy, just a bearer of death.

  10. What baffles me is the ridiculous amount of money being spent on technology for war, rather than strategies for peace.

    Money truly is the root of all evil.

  11. I watched something about ptsd on the history channel about these soldiers coming home from the miltarty and they just snap(so they say). I believe one guy killed his girlfriend, and one guy, well both guys killed their girlfriends, and they locked them up, of course, MURDER, LIFE, knowing they were suffering from PTSD. Which was probably the reason they were sent home. The government already knows these things and I think it was wrong to send them home due to this fact. They should get them some help before releasing them to come back home. It's too dangerous. These soldiers have this problem before coming home. They send these guys to a counsler to talk about everything that's going on with them and if they even breath ptsd they add their names to the pstd list and do nothing but the let them go home. Now the list is 50 years long. They don't want to spend the money doing something positive to help these men, but they want to spend 400m to shoot them up with some chemicals that will probably make them take out there entire family at any given time. I say to all you people who have signed up to get out bc if you end up this way they will disown you. I've been sayinfgfor years that the military will be the first to suffer. Get out, you're just a tool to them and they can always be replaced for better ones which is obviously the case.

  12. creepy!… and don't forget the human cloning.

    we now know that every abductee ( alien and/or milabs abductees ) has at least 3 clones which are activated once in a while and are sent to battle fields, or to make them blow somewhere, or to kill…

    When the mission is finished, the clone is turn-off. if it's damaged, a new clone will be make…

  13. There's a reason humans suffer f*****g PTSD from wars and it's a damn good one. We need to prioritize the well-being of the human condition, not these godless miserable wars. This is the wrong way for us to evolve. I know it's hard, but it's time to wake up, everybody. This is not a f*****g test.

  14. Not sure how many military or ex military are vc readers here but one thing that's interesting is that the SMA (sgt major of the army) recently issued a brief over the coming changes in the US Army and there's about to be some dramatic downsizing because we're so overstrengthened right now. I'm wondering, just out of curiosity, if the fact that we will be downsizing will also have to do with the ability (or inability) to take to this programming. It would make sense, considering that at this point, you will no longer be able to fail more than one pt test in a six month period in the calendar year. They're also cooking up a new pt test which is going to be more geared towards combat training rather than just physical training and assessment; and if i'm not mistaken the new pt test is on trial in some BCT and some AIT posts. Here's a breakdown for civilians of both pt tests

    Current pt test: push ups, sit ups, 2 mi run (all events based upon sex) — about a ten min break between events

    Proposed Alt A: the rower (kinda like situps), push ups, standing long jump, pull ups, 1.5 mi run, shuttle sprints (similar to suicide runs), fireman's carry (all events are based upon sex… fireman's carry depends on your weight as well)— all non stop

    Proposed Alt B: pushups, situps, 4-5 mi run— all non stop

    I also think the fact that most of this sounds virtual is interesting because we're already getting virtual training. There's a module called EST and it basically trains you on how to use your weapon in various positions. However, the module can also be used with different scenarios playing and it teaches you how to react and how you are at assessing combat situations (the footage used for scenarios is taken from real combat situations.

    Thanks vc for another great article!!

  15. Holy crap.

    I haven't even read the full article, and I know that's stupid, but after reading the first few words, I needed to make a comment.

    The people who plan to do this are inhumane. They're cruel. They're monsters.

    One day, I would like to hope that these people who treat humans like pawns get what they deserve.

    I think it's going to be like karma. Humans weren't meant to be gods. There were people who didn't understand that, and the longing to be all-powerful consumed and devoured their soul, and the very power they wanted eventually murdered them.

    The greed that humans were born with will corrupt us and will be the end of us.

    That's the price to pay.

  16. "Most of all there is, surely, a danger that these techniques, far from producing better soldiers, will actually produce a squad of zoned-out zombies, who will be no match for the determined, driven and highly motivated zealots of the Taliban."

    The U.S. government creates its own enemies, invades countries, up-heaves their societies, provides them with arms, trains them, then are surprised when they rebel. As rebel forces in the Middle East have been dedicated to fighting the US because they see our government for what it truly is, America's own citizens, beginning with this mass awakening of OWS, will show that same determination. Then it's just a matter of enforcing the police state (already in effect in NY) that the elite have been salivating for and opening up those FEMA camps… hmm this could all be averted if the police just decided to protect civilians and the troops refused to be led by madmen. All that is required for a law to lose power is for noone to enforce it.

  17. Soldiers really don't need drugs that make them in human to kill enemies like the taliban. What they need the drugs for is to be able to kill people like you and me without emotion. In order words zombie soldiers killing civilians that wouldn't do the elites bidding.scary but true.

  18. Super soldiers have actually been around for a long time, at least since Vietnam war. Maybe you have heard about Duncan O'Finioan who is an escaped ex super soldier. There is an interview with him at Project Camelot -> http://projectcamelot.org/duncan_o_finioan.html.

    At Project Camelot there has been some other whistleblower stories about the crazy stuff going on with 'making' these soldiers or whatever other purpose they are to serve.

  19. Movies usually use fantasy or animation to tell a hidden truth or they use ways to let us know wat is happening or wat is going to happen in the world..

    I recently watched an old movie called Universal Soldier and what happens in the movie sounds exactly like wat this article is talking about..

    Crazy humans..

    • There is a movie called The Island staring Scarlet Johansson, where a doctor cloned people for "insurance" purposes. Only the rich could afford a clone and if a part of their body fails due to illness they just hack off what is needed from the clone and use to heal the original person. Funny thing is I'm learning about this technology in my microbiology class and my biomedical ethics class right now. In the future doctors will be able to use this technology because we are actively working on this technology right now.

      They are telling us what their doing without really telling us. We think what we see in movies are "not real" but years later the predictions come true. I believe this is to desensitize us because "hey that only happens in movies."

  20. Yeah thats what we need killing machines… dont they think those machines could turn on ppl including their makers?? such idiots

  21. This makes me feel sick to my stomach. How horrible it must already be for soldiers to have to kill, to see another human being die because of them. But to become a 'machine' used purely for killing? I'd love to see the leaders of the world see their own sons and daughters go to war and die, maybe then they would understand how f*****g gross it is to use HUMAN BEINGS to fight for something as silly as power. Can't we all just live in peace? Can't we notice that the world, the universe even, is not made for us? Ugh, humans can be such vile creatures. I'm ashamed to be a part of this species.

  22. Israel is way ahead with its undercover agents (read : killing machines) bragging about their "hits". Makes me sick to the core. They obviously arent human anymore.

    ""This is a photo of a Palestinian young man called Basim Subeih who I killed. This is another young man. I shredded his body, and the photo shows the remnants of his body," he said."


  23. What if this "TMS" technique to enhance reasoning doesn't work properly? And these "Terminator" soldiers start acting like crazy criminals? And start shooting each other, because they're angry and too strong and feel no guilt or tiredness? They shoot each like crazy robots, instead of the supposed enemy? You never know what could happen in such messy situations.

    What if a wacko "Terminator" soldier somehow randomly found themselves walking down the street near your house and tried to break-in? It's a very scary idea.

    Why are we trying to come up with these new ridiculous inventions? Instead of trying to figure out how to create a "super soldier", why don't we try to find ways to make people and governments "super peaceful", while we're at it.

  24. post #9 (locust)

    "Zealots of the Taliban, you say? Wow, where did that last comment sneak in from?"

    greetings locust.

    compare the 'zealot' reference against the 'zombie' reference.

    the zealot is energised from within (by beliefs)

    the zombie from without (by chemicals)

    the inner thing trumps the outer thing.

  25. Video games can't be blamed for violence, as violence has existed for many years. I guess I'll be the first one to say it; I do feel like killing bad people, but then I remember the consequences and the fact (yes, fact to me) that I don't have the right to kill anyone, lest I be killed myself.

    While I think it strange to feel this way, I keep in mind that the animosity I bear is to those that seek to do the innocent harm. Then I remember all of God's creatures were innocent in the beginning, but a certain few choose or are made to choose a different path. Who am I to decree the killers die, as the are merely manipulated by the father of all lies, the wicked one.

    It starts with him, the vile one. But is he you must not hate, merely pity. he has fallen from God's Grace and Mercy, so he decided to try to take all of God's creation down with him. To hate him is to perpetuate what he is, and all it will do is consume you in the end.

    Pity, sorrow and remorse are not bad things. They are some of key elements in our victory against the wicked, the other being the Almighty Himself.

    • That would be a good article she has a pic of the multi armed god (i dont know its name) creation of jesus on a cross, lots of shots of a upside triangle we all know what that means, and possessed movement at the end which also kinda looks like shes praising someone or sacrificing bc of her standing with all the candles

      • "it's art" eh?

        I figure these kinds of things can still be entertaining and/or artistic whether or not you know/believe there's something sinister afoot.

        psychological thriller/horror perhaps?

  26. I believe video games as in Call of Duty or Battlefield already takes part in Trans-humanization to make some people killing machines alot of people that play these go to the service and kills with no problem this is proven, Not to mention that one guy that killed 7 people in the news ( I forgot where ) But they asked him how was he able to kill those people, He responded " I do it all the time on the xbox "

    • Yep, take a look at Crysis 2 and Deus Ex Revolution I think it's called. Just more predictive programming at work. Of course the marketing will be so sleek too. Possible slogans anyone?? Be all that you can be, and more, in the arrrrrmy. Sad that many will fall for this crap.

      • And Transhumanist Agenda in Crysis 2 is very similar to Transhumanist agenda in Ironman movies: our dependence on technology can become difference between life and death

      • it is all based on the person. personally i have no scruples about killing. that doesn't me i do. it means i am willing to fight against the N.W.O. even with the knowledge that i'll lose.but i wont go down a coward. i am putting together a website for people to learn basic survival techniques should be finished in a week.

    • Just came across this article from one of my favorite sites. Thought you might find interesting, though hardly a surprise. It has a link to the study:

      Frequent Video Gaming Creates Physical Brain Differences, Study Suggests


  27. "Spartan warriors were subjected to a vigorous regime involving unending physical violence, severe cold, a lack of sleep and constant sexual abuse.

    As with the English public schools, which used similar tactics to produce the warriors who carved out the British Empire" – this sounds to me like a form of MK Ultra delta programming, with a few omissions and probably not yet discovered techniques. Thanks Nazis!

    We have seen the VC article on the top sinister mission patches, it really speaks for itself.


    Research Lt. Colonel of the US Army Michael A. Aquino – the Founder of the "Temple of Set". He has admitted that every US military base has a Satanic Coven that lives on grounds or near by and is involved in black ops. Consider this when examining Delta Programming, and please if you have not yet, look at the work of Russ Dizdar. Here is an interview he did on The Black Awakening – Super Soldiers.


    This is not easy information to digest, or even learn about. If you don't believe in the Anti-Christ then just ignore me. If you do, and that this world is currently setting the stage for his arrival, how do you think he will have a global army? How are people going to sign on for that type of duty? I am beginning to think many of them aren't. Many will be created, via delta programming which rather one wants to believe it or not, involves Satanic Ritual Abuse.

    Thank you VC for posting this! People need to know about this stuff! The coming chaos, to set the stage for their man of peace (counterfeit of course).

  28. Wow. I didn't get through the first paragraph of the Independent article before I was sick of it.

    – The survivors would, in years to come, often wonder if these rejects were the lucky ones. –

    Gee whiz, I always and immediately believe and overwhelmingly even blindingly trust someone who claims to know what was in the minds of people who lived over 2,000 years ago when things were completely different, including especially the languages that people thought in.

    – the determined, driven and highly motivated zealots of the Taliban. –

    Zealots of the Taliban, you say? Wow, where did that last comment sneak in from?

    • Yeah, and it's funny because doesn't 'zealot' originally mean a member of that ancient Jewish sect which resisted Roman rule in Palestine?.. They're trying to villainize the word.

      This is so evil. Makes you question whether these people already have their consciences wiped. They have no mercy and no limits. Absolutely sickening.

  29. I think Henry Kissinger summed up it up quite well when he said "Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy".

    As for the first paragraph in the news article,I think it gives many a good insight in regards to where the primary inspiration for MK Ultra/Monarch mind control might have came from (was thinking about putting 'lol' at the end,but then something which these killing 'machines' lack [a conscience] told me that's it's not a laughing matter).Peace and Love

  30. Why would any one want to be a tool for the nwo. F**k that, that's why i lied to get out of military training failure to adapt to being a tool lol.

    • Lol im in the military and if i hear that phrase ONE more time i'm gonna jump out of a window. I wonder how many of us are going to get that discharge once we start resisting to get shot up with "vaccinations" and etc. They're already planning to downsize because we're so overmanned that it's ridiculous. But it's interesting that this is all happening now because there's several things about to occur, one being another presidential election. Within a few years, we'll be in the middle of yet another war and of course they're going to claim that we don't have enough soldiers. I guess that's when they're going to start releasing all these super soldiers because the training is definitely going to progress beyond what it is now, unfortunately.

  31. after the war then what? Start killing the citizen 'profane' if they refuse to follow.great,they are creating machine that will killing any one that stand on thier way.if a man dont have a mind of his own he will every one,preacher,childrend,leader even his family…

  32. This will surely backfire. Nothing that man has ever made has truly worked out the way that it was intended. This is just another way for humans to desensitize others for the sake of being great and playing at being God. It will fail just like everything else they have tried to do. If that's the case then why not just make robots to go in wars and kill humans rather than subject humans to a wide array of drugs and trauma then sit back and pull the kill switch should something go wrong? And it will inevitably always go wrong. For as much as our humans brains allow us to think and invent there's a realm of understanding that we should not venture off into. I can see it now played out like the Terminator movies or Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I don't want to be cloned or exposed to huge amounts radiation or magnetic waves or drugs of any kind. What they leave out from their triumphant review of the Spartans is that they as a civilization, as a people fell. Just like all the rest of the ancient civilizations fell and we will too. We will be done in by the very things that we sought to make us bigger, better, more…except we need to do some tweaking to our humanity instead.

  33. I thought the US army were pulling out all of their soilders from Iraq etc. anyway? They clearly have other motives for these 'Killing Machines' if they're spending 400 million a year on them…

  34. Has anyone seen Ray Kurzweil's documentary "Transcendent Man?" He talks about the "singularity" and "hive mind"…about how technology is growing exponentially. 50 years ago the computer was the size of a room and now it's the size of a grain of rice, soon it will be the size of molecules then we can inject them in our bodies and they'll become "mind extenders." We can also all be plugged in a super computer and live forever, possibly advancing mankind and such. I say no to that. Who will control this "super computer" everyone's plugged into? The elite. Who can afford such technology with these so called "mind extenders?" The elite.

    • YES! i was watching in awe !!! i couldn't believe how close they r to creating such things, if they haven't already of course. great stuff to watch.

    • Everyone should do more research on Ray Kurzweil.

      He has been hell-bent on creating a Virtual Reality world since he was a child because he's always wanted to be a famous female pop-star.

      I'm not kidding.

    • Allow me to get you away from speculation on things you have not experienced.

      I am not a wealthy elite.

      As a younger man I was in combat situations.

      In recent years I have had transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), regularly take Modafinal and beta blockers like propanolol. TMS is almost miraculous in its cure of chronic depression. Modafinal is a powerful cognitive enhancer and the beta blockers help put anxiety in the background, making it easy to overcome uncomfortable and frightening things.

      I can easily function at an enhanced level such as learning a new language in a few weeks…and learning it well. My sense of humor has improved as has my general demeanor and outlook on life, par example; I will be going in for surgery in a week and my attitude is steady, realistic to the potential for mishap and i am able to respond in a positive way that would have been impossible without these enhancing treatments and drugs.

      Unlike what has been posited here, it's not some diabolical method of producing super killers or the sole province of those shadowy elites everyone seems to rail against. I'm just a regular guy…or, at least I was. Now i am much more content, alert and I find it easy to break bad habits. Starting this was scary at first but it has proved to be a worthwhile journey.

      I hope this will strip away some of the fog and help those willing to help themselves.

      • I find that very incredible. Were you given such treatments from your primary care physician? The article makes it seem like such technology is more on the experimental side and an is exclusively for those in the armed forces. Did they give it to you to help you over come PTSD? or was this looked at as a treatment for depression. And what was the reasoning for the TSM? I feel like there was no reason to give you that unless they felt they would get a return for the 'mental enhancement' of sorts.

      • that reference explained:

        Starcraft is a military sci-fi real-time-strategy game.

        stimpack is a technological upgrade to human infantry (not just Marines). When used, it temporarily boosts combat effectiveness at cost to health. (medics can heal the health damage)

        Starcraft 1 had it, evidently the feature was kept for the sequel

    • uhmmm….dude for your information stimpacks were already in starcraft 1, expansion and latest starcraft 2.

      Stimpacks are real, they are called drugs..soldiers have been using drugs in wars to be more violent…..more like an obedient puppet for war.
