US MILTARY COMMANDER ADVOCATED TESTING NEW WEAPONS ON AMERICANS FIRST

An American military commander is advocating the testing of so-called nonlethal weapons on American citizens prior to using them on our enemies in the Global War on Terrorism.
While most Americans and members of the mainstream news media are all wrapped up in coverage of the 2008 presidential election, media critics are complaining about how many important news stories are being ignored. And here's an example: a shocking statement by a top Pentagon official appears to have slipped through the cracks.
Secretary of the Air Force Michael Wynne told a Houston Chronicle reporter that nonlethal weapons such as high-powered microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before they are used on the battlefield.
Wynne advocated testing nonlethal weapons, such as high-power microwave devices, against American citizens before being used on the battlefield, saying "If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation.
"Just that bit of information should drive most Americans to feverishly put pen to paper writing letters for Wynne's immediate dismissal from his top position. But then Wynne explained the reason for experimenting with American citizens' lives," said former Marine intelligence officer and NYPD detective Sid Francis.
"Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions in the international community over any possible safety concerns," said Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne.
"If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne.
"Secretary Wynne makes General Jack D. Ripper -- the madman who starts World War III in the Stanley Kubrich motion picture "Dr. Strangelove" -- look like a sane military commander," quips political strategist Mike Baker.
"Using Wynne's logic, we should set off a nuclear device in New York before we -- God forbid -- use one against an enemy? Not to make certain it works, but so we don't get criticized by the international community," said Baker.
"Look United Nations! We nuked 8 million Americans before attacking Iran. We're not bad guys, just misunderstood," said Baker.
When NewswithViews.com searched for stories in the mainstream media about Wynne's cavalier attitude over the testing of weapons on Americans prior to their use on Jihadists, except for a few blogs and small town newspapers, stories about Wynne's statement were scarce.
One story discovered appeared in the L.A. Times, describes how Secretary of Defense Robert Gates canned Wynne for what he considered "outrageous statements."
"I've thought about it and I can't help believing the reason there was no outrage or even news coverage about Wynne's outrageous -- OUTRAGEOUS -- proposal [to use weapons on our own citizens] is that the liberal media don't care if Americans are killed or maimed by their own government. They just don't want foreigners -- even terrorists -- killed or maimed by our government," claims NYPD detective Edna Aguayo
"One need only to look at the Waco Massacre to understand my suspicions about the liberals. The Branch Davidian compound may have housed religious fanatics and they may even have armed themselves to repel perceived enemies, but for Attorney General Janet Reno to unleash hell on men, women and children to this day angers me," said Officer Aguayo.
"Some of the tactics used against the fanatics at the Branch Davidian are the same that bring tears to the eyes of John McCain when he hears we use them on Jihadists and illegal enemy combatants," said Mike Baker.
"Liberals do not oppose the use of deadly force. They only oppose it when they're not doing the killing. And then they oppose it when soldiers and cops actually try to kill the enemy. Panties on the head of a Muslim? Barking dogs? Did you see those grown men in the senate behave like whining wash-women? Senator Dick Durbin called our soldiers Nazis!" said Baker, also a former army officer.

Critics point out that some of the same lawmakers who bombard us daily with reports and studies and investigations of alleged military atrocities overseas -- Kerry, McCain (Hillary Clinton, now a senator, was the First Lady during the Waco Massacre) -- fell silent over the Nazi tactics utilized against American citizens by federal SWAT team officers.
