The ‘Havana Syndrome’ Has Struck Again!

Síndrome de La Habana

In addition to the Communist China virus, there appears to be another socialist-engineered pandemic that has been attacking the world. The Havana Syndrome has struck again! This time, its impact caused a delay of a flight in Vice President Kamala Harris’ trip to Vietnam from Singapore this Tuesday, August 24th. This mysterious and ignored malady, that is connected with communist and former communist countries, continues to eviscerate the lives of, principally, United States and Canadian citizens.

Over the last weekend, two United States diplomats stationed in Vietnam were evacuated due to the experiencing of “anomalous acoustic incidents here in Hanoi”, according to Christopher Klein, United States chargé d’affaires in Vietnam, as reported by NBC News. This prompted a security concern for the vice president’s security staff. The afflicted were found to have hearing, balance, and cognitive changes, which are symptoms consistent with these acoustic attacks which originated in Cuba in 2016.

What is the Havana Syndrome?

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine concluded, in a 2020 report, that some of the observed brain injuries and traumas were congruent with the effects of directed high-intensity microwave radiation. Espionage is logically the suspected reasoning for these attacks. The intent of the perpetrator is to extract data and information from mobile and other electronic devices from a distance. So far, over two hundred American officials and their families have been impacted by this permanently disabling condition. 

It is estimated that about half of the two hundred impacted United States officials from the Havana Syndrome are from the Central Intelligence Agency. Sixty are related to the Department of Defense, fifty are from the State Department and the rest are members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Clearly, these functioning operatives are in a position of service to the United States, equivalent to that of a soldier in the armed forces. This state-directed policy of espionage against America is an act of war. 

Virtually every continent can count an American victim of the Havana Syndrome. It was in Cuba, however, where this atrocious “illness” originated and where most of the afflicted have suffered the highest number of casualties. The Ottawa Citizen reported on August 25th that a high-ranking Canadian diplomat in Cuba was flown home in February of this year after being exposed to an acoustic attack, relative to the Havana Syndrome. 

To this date, no American administration, nor the Canadian government, has reacted in proper retribution for these crimes. It appears that until the Castro regime, the communist Chinese and/or Putin’s authoritarian Russia decide to attempt to retrieve mobile electronic devices and inflict the Havana Syndrome on higher-ranking members of the American government, we will continue to see this pathetic pattern of behavior on the part of the United States and Canada.
