China and India are engaged in a high-altitude border standoff in the Ladakh region since April. China turns Ladakh battleground with India into a ‘microwave oven’.
China’s military used microwave weapons to force Indian troops to retreat during a months-long border standoff in the Himalayas, according to an account that has emerged in Beijing.
Its forces had turned two strategic hilltops that had been occupied by Indian soldiers ‘into a microwave oven’, forcing them to retreat and allowing the positions to be retaken without an exchange of conventional fire, according to Jin Canrong, a professor of International Relations at Beijing based Renmin University.
In a lecture he said that the People’s Liberation Army “beautifully” seized the ground without violating a no-live-shot rule governing the rules of engagement in the high-altitude standoff between the two Asian powers. Microwave weapons focus high frequency electro-magnetic pulses or beams at targets and cause irritation and pain.
These weapon category needs to be curbed and nipped in the bud – this definition of incapacitating not killing can be extended to all kind of improvisations that may have far reaching repercussions on broadening the definition of crippling weapon like nerve gases and germ warfare which are banned but reducing their efficacy to let soldiers withdraw or surrender.
China’s new weapon, dubbed the Poly WB-1, doesn’t make you uncontrollably poop or incapacitate you through induced vomiting, but it burns you from the inside out from over half a mile (or one kilometer) away.
The Poly WB-1 uses millimeter wave beams to excite the water molecules within a victim until they heat up, causing overwhelming — but non-lethal — pain. Basically, it’s like a household kitchen microwave turned into a long-range, targeted weapon.
