Enter the M44 generator cluster this is an American chemical cluster bomb originally designed to deliver the incapacitating agent BZ. (other dispersal agents still classified) It was first mass-produced in 1962 and all stocks of the weapons were (allegedly) destroyed by 1989.

The M44 generator cluster bomb has a diameter of 15 inches (380 mm) and a length of 60 inches (1.5 m). Weighing 175 pounds (79 kg) the M44 generator cluster is a cluster bomb which was designed to deliver the chemical incapacitating agents; to that end the weapon holds approximately 39 pounds (18 kg) of CBRNE payload.

Also, the 750 pound (340 kg) M43 BZ cluster bomb had a 16 inch (41 cm) diameter and a 66 inch (170 cm) length. This cluster bomb is designed to hold three stacks of 19 M138 bomblets. The bomblets each hold about 6 ounces (170 g) of the incapacitating agent BZ (also known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or CBRNE payload (other dispersal agents still classified). The M43 cluster bomb was intended to cover an area of about 0.11 to 0.88 ha (0.27 to 2.17 acres) with BZ, or other CBRNE agents, which made it useful for attacking a squad or company sized element.

The M43 is best used against hard, high-value intelligence targets, in hostage or prisoner rescue situations, or in any other situation where friendly forces and enemy forces occupied the same area and depending on specific conditions and threat level.

M43 deployment used in open terrain under neutral atmospheric stability have the potential to incapacitated about 94% of the target with a fatality rate based on payload. This can be delayed for (3 to 6 hour onset) and relatively long-term (1 to 5 days) neutralization. The weapon was produced in the early 1960s and all stocks of U.S. BZ were (allegedly) destroyed by 1989.

The M34 series sarin cluster bomb, the first major nerve agent bomb standardized (mass-produced) by the U.S. military after World War II.

The M34 had a diameter of 14 inches (36 cm) and a length of 86 inches (218 cm).[2] This particular cluster bomb was designed to carry a total weight of 108 pounds (49 kg) of sarin nerve agent, the weapon’s total weight was 525 pounds (238 kg). The M34 cluster bomb held 76 M125 bomblet sub-munitions, each of the sub-munitions held 2.6 pounds (1.2 kg) of GB. The weapons also contained a parachute, an opening delay, fuze, and a burster which held 8.8 ounces (250 g) of tetryl — Wikipedia

The Up-close and Personal Spin-off (Lethal-force Area Denial Systems)

The goal is not to maim, but to kill.

The M44 cyanide device (also called a ‘cyanide gun’ or a ‘cyanide trap’) is used for the elimination of coyotes, feral dogs, and foxes. It is made from four parts: a capsule holder wrapped with cloth or other soft material, a small plastic capsule containing 0.88 grams of sodium cyanide, a spring-powered ejector, and a 5-7 inch stake. To install the trap, the stake is first driven down into the ground, and then the capsule is put in the holder, screwed onto the cocked ejector, and secured to the stake. The wrapped capsule holder is smeared with scented bait to attract coyotes and make them bite and pull on it. (The use of a bite-and-pull action makes the trap less likely to be set off by non-canine wildlife.[1]) When the trap is triggered, the spring propels a dose of sodium cyanide into the animals’s mouth, and the sodium cyanide combines with water in the mouth to produce poisonous cyanide gas.[2] In addition to the cyanide, the capsule contains Day-Glo fluorescent particle marker (orange in capsules used by the Wildlife Service, and yellow in capsules prepared for other users) .[3]

The M44 was invented in the 1960s to replace a similar device known as a ‘Coyote Getter’, which had been in use since the 1930s. The Coyote Getter used a .38 Special pistol cartridge case to contain the sodium cyanide mixture, and ejected the cyanide with a primer. That design made the Coyote Getter quite hazardous, because the wad and cyanide were ejected with great force. For example, in 1959 a 15-year old boy lost one eye when he accidentally set off a Coyote Getter by stepping on it, in 1966 a man a was hit in the left hand and subsequently died from cyanide poisoning, and between 1965 and 1971 at least 17 humans were injured by Coyote Getters. Therefore, in the early 1960s the Fish and Wildlife Service started to develop a safer, spring-based replacement device. Much of the work was done James Poteet, a Predator Control Specialist in Midland, Texas who received a patent for the device in 1967. The new device was gradually phased into Federal management programs beginning in 1967, and by November 1970 it had substantially replaced the the Coyote Getter.[3][4]

Since its introduction, the M44 design was updated several times to solve problems such as caking in the cyanide capsules or malfunctioning ejectors. One effort in 1977-79 resulted in a completely new, slightly larger cyanide ejector called the M50. However, a field evaluation in 1982 showed that the older Poteet-designed M44 actually performed better, and the M50 was phased out. In 1984, the M44 ejector body and capsule holder were redesigned as it became necessary to replace the dies that had been used since 1967 to cast those metal parts. That model is still produced today, with some minor adjustments.[3]

Use of the M44 device has been criticized by animal welfare and environmental groups, as the devices have many unintended victims, including pets and endangered species; strongly indicative of a lack of selectivity, instead of the supposed high level.[5] In 2003, Mr. Dennis Slaugh of Vernal, Utah, was on public lands and mistook an M-44 for a survey marker. When he pulled on it, the device shot sodium cyanide powder on his face and chest causing him to become violently ill.[6] In February 2006, an M44 device killed a man’s dog in Utah, as the dog and owner were walking through public land. The man was also affected by the cyanide in the device, and is seeking compensation from the US Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Service, along with the Utah Department of Food and Agriculture.[7] In 2017 a 14 year old boy was injured and dog killed by a M44 which detonated near his home.

Back in the pristine days of human conflict, capture the flag was the way to win a war. Living in the current singular interdependent international community of detached globalism, …the global war that is progressing is not one of terror, but it is one of eradication. 

By now, citizens should now know the character of those people previously representing America and the American people to the world. It can be assured that there are many that believe nothing they heard or what was said. Absolutely nothing.  Why should they?

Any conspiracy theories aside, we should all be well aware of so-called false flag events. If desired public opinion is not controlled and turned around to meet a destructive agenda, then with a warped sense of politics or diplomacy, the go-ahead to withhold attacking invading enemies will likely enable them to pull off other, more spectacular provocations. Of course the illusion of justice will be assured when those who perpetrate such crimes are also in collusion, or in charge of the ensuing investigations, at least this is how it has been working out thus far, convenient isn’t it?
