Subject: RE: BS: The WMD that is never mentioned
I will attribute the "uniformed" crack to the fact I am still recovering from the flu so I am a bit crankier than usual.

Amid the fish and fart sarcasm here, lets imagine one more rarely discussed weapon of mass destruction:

Suppose we could build gigantic multi gigawatt ionsphere heaters and aim them at the sky from a spot close to the artic circle. Imagine further that the energy pumped into the atmosphere can cause jet streams to alter their course according to man made manipulations of the energy radiated by this gigantic machine.

Now lets name this gargantuan machine/weapon with a cute acronym like the DOD does with most weapon systems. We already have 'Peace keepers and Daisy cutters so lets name this one with angelic initials such as HAARP.

For a lark I can imagine the Soviets having one years before the US and picture a meeting in the crisis room deep underground at US cental command when a General stands up and says "Gentlemen, we must not have a HAARP gap!".

Imagination is a wonderful thing.
