Genetically Engineered Soldiers: Coming to a Army Base Near You

From dailymail.co.uk -

Tomorrow's soldiers could be able to run at Olympic speeds and will be able to go for days without food or sleep, if new research into gene manipulation is successful.

According to the U.S. Army's plans for the future, their soldiers will be able to carry huge weights, live off their fat stores for extended periods and even regrow limbs blown apart by bombs.

The plans were revealed by novelist Simon Conway, who was granted behind-the-scenes access to the Pentagon's high-tech Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Tomorrow's soldiers? or do you mean today's soldiers!

We may already have this...better called the MK Ultra program. Here's a great explanation to what the MK Ultra program is all about for anyone who hasn't heard of it:

Imagine if the world spent

Imagine if the world spent all this money figuring out how they could exist without the need of soldiers.

To do this

Future "Super Soldiers" would be:

#1 Volunteers, with some kind of cash or inducement to permit themselves to become human guinea pigs. Perhaps a quicker path to citizenship, loan forgiveness, or exonerated for previous crimes. In today's declining economy, it wouldn't be hard to find some desperate enough to sacrifice themselves to support their families. No doubt they would have to sign an contract not to hold the government liable for any mishaps in genetic engineering.

#2 Be drafted, in which they are in servitude of the state with their personal liberties suspended for the "Greater Good."

Conscience does not exist if not exercised

You guys do know that the new

You guys do know that the new movie "The Bourne Legacy" is about right? GM soldiers who feel no pain, can heal wounds faster than normal, can withstand extreme cold and heat etc...

I bet it's right around the corner.

It is nowhere near around the corner

This is just typical media sensationalism. The DARPA scientists aren't super-geniuses with medical knowledge decades more advanced than the rest of society.

Even if they were, those aren't even desirable traits anyway. There is a rare genetic disease called congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis that prevents the person from feeling pain and temperature. The patients die young because we need to feel pain and temperature to avoid tissue damage.

Soldiers lacking this ability would be pretty useless.

Hmmm... MGS?

The only problem with that is finding big boss to clone his DNA. Maybe Hideo was working for the Pentagon all these years

Awesome! Genetically Modified Soldiers, Thats What We Need!

Just think if there is a glitch in one of these things? Think we've screwed things up badly now? You havent seen anything yet. Genetically modified super humans for MORE WAR! YAY!
GO HUMANS!!!!!

I bet..

They will have an off switch. Jussayin...

I've heard something even scarier,

that they are researching ways to develop soldiers without a conscience. Can't have a pesky conscience getting in the way of the US Government's goals can we?

I remember that post

It was called Dead Souls..chilling information.
Found it on DP search!

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Soldiers without a conscience

They already have that.
They're called politicians!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Whats worse, to have a conscience that thinks it is doing

the right thing-but deceived into doing evil, or to not have one at all. Tyranny comes from both. They have our people believing they are defending America when in fact they are helping to bring this country down, unknowingly. There is no future in perpetual war, except violence, debt, lies.

They cannot take away the conscience like they cannot take the soul. They can take away the body, but they have no dominion over the soul. The "conscience-less" people are still accountable to God. Oh but what sweet words (sarcasm added) "genetically modified killing machines serving the NWO in perpetual wars". I am more afraid of the people who have a conscience but choose to allow the television (or other)to program them out of using it. They are programed to think that what they support is in line with good conscience.

james williams

I agree James

we seem to have many soldiers (and civilians) thinking that killing innocent people is perfectly acceptable if it's for the right cause. Isn't that what terrorists think? But I thought we were "fighting terrorism?"

LittleWing's picture

We are creating and supporting terrorism

This is a good one to show the neocons on the right and left:

http://www.dailypaul.com/248627/un-designates-free-syrian-ar...

"the United States, the UK, NATO, and the Gulf State despots of Saudi Arabia and Qatar are knowingly and willfully funding, arming, and politically backing designated affiliates of Al Qaeda contrary not only to US and British anti-terror legislation, but contrary to numerous UN resolutions as well."

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Regrow limbs eh? Really?

I suppose some evloutionists may believe this stuff!

Not too long ago, there was this fellow from Australia, Steve Irwin, the famous so called "crocodile hunter" and he was one with nature and the animals.

I heard him once say that if he ever lost an arm or a leg, he would simply regrow one! This is on tape.

He really believed this! How foolish!

Well, one day he was swimming underwater and unknowingly taunting an sting ray.

He thought all was well because after all, he was a god of some sort with the animals.

The sting ray stuck him and he died a few moments later.

How foolish they are that deny God and His Word and elevate themselves.

Let not these foolish stories about super soldiers trouble you.

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Don't know if this is a

Don't know if this is a reference or not, I just found it interesting-

"And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them."

As far as the bizarre creatures in Revelations, I wouldn't put it past someone creating them just to see if they could...

"A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man" -Jebediah Springfield

May I possibly explain ?

There will be plenty of physical death in those days.

When the Bible speaks of men seeking death and not being able to find it, it is speaking spiritually.
When one becomes born again, they die to themselves and to the old man and live unto the new man given them by God Himself as spoken in the book of Colossians chapter 3:1-3

They are new creatures in Christ spoken in 2 Corinthinans 5:17

So in the last days there will be many seeking that spiritual death but will not find it for God has given up on them.

Just as it is told in Romans 1 how God gave them up for their abominations.

Bottom line is this.....Today is the day of salvation, seek ye the Lord while He may be found!

Peace.

Is it a joke, or the future....

This is insane, scarily stupid stuff either way isn't it.

They genetically modify crops and food, bankrupt the corporation and then they turn around and start doing it with human soldiers. Even though this part is a joke, I'm just going to tell you right now, with some of the things Gary Johnson spouts off about I would say that this thing is already here.

What?

Not sure what your getting at with the part about Johnson. Maybe you could clarify. The article doesn't even concern Johnson. Why are you bringing him up? What did he spout off that is relevant to this post?

Johnson supports a lot of things...

http://baarswestside.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/former-new-mexic...

I would highly suggest others check people such as Johnson out with great scrutiny, for he represents a lot of strange things.

I'm Ron Paul all the way, but

I'm Ron Paul all the way, but I decided to go look at the Johnson link you gave to get some dirt and couldn't find it. Can you tell me? I need to know so I can be educated. Thanks!

Nothing relevant was said in that article...

Here is the text of the article - http://baarswestside.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/former-new-mexic...

--------------------------------------

Libya: (remember this was last Thursday night). He's perplexed as anyone with Obama and the mission. Johnson said later he was against Bush 2's invasion (I prefer Liberation) of Iraq, but supported the earlier invasion of Afganistan, although that mission's complete and it's time to move on.

Deficits: The bussword's 43 percent. That's the percentage of each budget dollar financing the deficits and Johnson's up for cutting things 43% to restore fiscal sanity. The deficit's Johnson's key issue. It's reaching crisis proportions for Johnson. Read Jay Cost's Morning Jay: Obama's Achilles' Heel? If the deficit's not a crisis, it sure may be 2012's GOP opportunity.

Drugs: Johnson's signature issue has been repealing Drug laws and legalizing many of them. Keith was a skeptic here (go read him, he's wobbling though). Johnson's got the facts and talked of addiction rates in Holland and Portugal, but somehow-or-another this kind of Cost-Benefits Analysis sort of Utilitarian approach to politics makes me leery. I had a biz Exec tell me once (in my role as young-number-cruncher) that he managed things by numbers early in his career, but as he grew in the job he became more intuitive managing people. So while my fellow Dutchman maybe not using drugs as much when they were illegal, my instuition tells me making drugs legals is going to increase use. Just guessing, but that's my bet.

A twist Johnson might explore here are the disparities in incarceration over drug crimes. An African American kid's more likely to get time than a white one. Maybe the greatest case for decriminalization is it's gross unfairness in enforcement.

Immigration: Johnson nails this one. He's for a guest worker program. No path to citizenship, but make it easy for people to come to the US to work. He said he believed Arizona certainly has the right to pass their enforcement laws and that they'll probably get abused with profiling. They won't solve illegal immigration either.

School Choice: He's for it now. He was for it before. He advocated it in New Mexico and while he didn't get there, he increased the polling numbers of New Mexicans supporting it.

The Fed: Johnson's an audit-the-Fed guy and if he had his druthers would abolish it for a commodity based currency. What ever good's to be found here goes over my head during the evening with beer-in-hand. Libertarians are going to have to make the case here for folks in the AM when most of us have clearer heads. It's an issue that makes glaze over.

Obama Czars Czars in the Executive Branch without Congressional approval no problem if Johnson's elected, 'cause they'll be his Czars implementing a his agenda. That got some laughs.

So, what was relevant in any of that to this post?
