According to Wikipedia, in
“early August 2023, a series of wildfires broke out in the U.S. state of Hawaii, predominantly on the island of Maui. The wind-driven fires prompted evacuations, caused widespread damage, killing at least 115 people and leaving 388 others missing in the town of Lāhainā.”
Residents of Maui are recounting another, more fiendish account altogether. They do not agree with the official casualty toll either.
I have watched various images and commentary-laced video clips of this strange event and concede that they can be attributed to Directed Energy Weapons (DEW). I was sceptical of DEW capabilities until the Maui incident.
The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) describes DEW as
“concentrated electromagnetic energy to combat enemy forces and assets. These weapons include high energy lasers and other high power electromagnetics—such as millimeter wave and high power microwave weapons…If a greater amount of force is required, DEWs can also damage or destroy enemy assets. To do this, a high energy laser can emit electromagnetic energy with a wavelength the target material absorbs most effectively, melting the material.” The GAO summary also adds that high energy lasers…are “capable of melting steel”. (bold added for emphasis)
Now that we have broadly established the capabilities of DEW, is there any evidence of its deployment in Maui?
