Lightbulb Make mud, not war

Operation Popeye..

The Cult - Rain ..

Operation Popeye (Project Controlled Weather Popeye / Motorpool / Intermediary-Compatriot) was a highly classified weather modification program in Southeast Asia during 1967–1972.. The cloud seeding operation during the Vietnam War ran from March 20, 1967 until July 5, 1972 in an attempt to extend the monsoon season, specifically over areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail..The chemical weather modification program was conducted from Thailand over Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam and allegedly sponsored by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and CIA without the authorization of then Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird who had categorically denied to Congress that a program for modification of the weather for use as a tactical weapon even existed..

Forrest - Vietnam War + Rain..

Cloud seeding was far from new in the late 1960s.. There were extensive experiments by GE and the U.S. military after World War II.. And ARPA was working with advanced computers in the early 60s to see how weather might be used in battle.. But Operation Popeye was the first known successful use of weather control technology in combat..Some people now go so far as to call the operation the "Watergate of weather warfare."..Weather manipulation is still very much on the minds of U.S. intelligence agencies..It's probably safe to say that humanity hasn't seen the last of weather modification in war..

The 54th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron carried out the operation, and continuing through every rainy season (March to November) in Southeast Asia until 5 July 1972, operational cloud seeding missions were flown..The initial area of operations was the eastern half of the Laotian panhandle, the operational area was increased northward to around the area of the 20th parallel and included portions of far western North Vietnam with conventional bombing restrictions being put into effect, most of northeastern Cambodia was added to the operational area..Weather modification procedures, when performed to achieve a military end, now fall under the provenance of the Environmental Modification Convention..., this is not a test..It could mean that point in time inherently contains some sort of cosmic significance..I ain't no physcikisk, but I knows what matters..Hey, we're going right now to news...
