Examining how cloud seeding works.
“Operation Popeye”, also known as “Project Popeye”, is weather manipulation that was used during the Vietnam war (1955-1975).
Project Popeye was a cloud seeding operation that was introduced in 1967 and utilized through 1972 so the Americans could win the Vietnam war. The United States airforce was engaged in the only known geoengineering, militarization of metoerology.
U.S. flied more than 2,600 cloud-seeding sorties over North and South Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia as part of a covert effort to extend the monsoon season and inhibit North Vietnamese troop movements. The operation seeded clouds with both silver iodide and lead iodide, resulting in the targeted areas seeing an extension of the monsoon period an average of 30 to 45 days.
This operation was executed to:
- Softening road surfaces
- Causing landslides along roadways
- Washing out river crossings
- Maintain saturated soil conditions beyond the normal time span.
It wasn’t the first time weather was percieived as potential weapon. In 1872 the US Congress authorised the Secretaries of War and the Navy to test the relationship between artillery fire and rain propagation proposed by Edward Powers in his War and the weather book (1871). After the operation Popeye was declassified in 1974, the United Nations banned the weaponization of weather after the passage of the Environmental Modification (ENMOD) Treaty in 1977, which prohibited offensive weather modification from occurring over a large area. Operation Popeye was rather successful and reached its goals.
Here’s a quote from 274. Memorandum From the Deputy Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs (Kohler) to Secretary of State Rusk Washington, January 13, 1967.
‘In our view, the experiments were undeniably successful, indicating that, at least under weather and terrain conditions such as those involved, the U.S. Government has realized a capability of significant weather modification. If anything, the tests were “too successful”—neither the volume of induced rainfall nor the extent of area affected can be precisely predicted. The only absolute control, therefore, is after the fact, i.e., to halt cloud-seeding missions”.
They used cloud seeding to win the Vietnam war. We are in the midst of an invisible war, biochemical warfare. A war where their ammunition is the poisonous injection, a virus and weather manipulation.
*Important Note – Biological warfare, also known as germ warfare, is the use of biological toxins or infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, insects, and fungi with the intent to kill, harm or incapacitate humans, animals or plants as an act of war. Biological weapons (often termed “bio-weapons”, “biological threat agents”, or “bio-agents”) are living organisms or replicating entities (i.e. viruses, which are not universally considered “alive”). Entomological (insect) warfare is a subtype of biological warfare.
