Well, having worked on portions of the "Star War's" research for
the last 15 years I would have to say that IF there were a high
power microwave beam weapon orbiting the earth (there isn't) it
wouldn't be used to "burn holes" in agricultural crops in
England or anywhere else.

If used at all it would be against the intended targets,
ballistic missiles and perhaps high flying aircraft.

But, there aren't any.such weapons.

And by the way, just in case you hadn't noticed, the ballistic
missile threat is in some ways WORSE now than when President
Reagan (remember Ray Gun?) proposed the Strategic Defense
Initiative over 15 years ago. Worse because economic conditions
are causing a breakdown in civilization in the FSU (former
Soviet Union). This breakdown could result in a loss of control
over the "button" to fire one or more missile. And also, by the
way, we have been told that there are no missiles directed at
western countrie. This may be true, BUT it would take only
minutes for the missile to be targetted at the USA ....or
elsewhere.

As for the development of aniballistic missiles and "Star Wars",
the story goes that wise old President Reagan asked someone what
we would do if we heard that there was an accidental (or
intentional) launch of a Soviet missile. He was told.....
nothing, we do nothing, we haven't time to do anything (30
minutes max!) and then we suck it up! Reagan, being the
reactionary throwback that all the liberal pinko's believed him
to be, thought that just maybe the Soviets might lose total
control of all their missiles and one just might get launched.
But worse than that, they might decide to attack in a big way,
so Reagan said, why don't we try to build a defense? Thus began
the Strategic Defense Initiative, which had its heyday between
1985 and 1991.

Believe it or not, in the face of all the criticism the SDI
continues under its new name of several years back, Ballistic
Missile Defense Organization (www. acq.osd.mil/bmdo). Although a
lot of money had been spent, the continual criticism of the
program has resulted in a slowdown to the point where as of
today there still is no "battlestation" in orbit. Hence, if a
disaffected citizen of the FSU (Former Soviet Union) should
decide to launch one for the hell of it...we would still have to
suck it up.

As for the "crop circles", I might also point out that the
really interesting agriglyphs are not the circular or elliptical
ones, but the highly complex structures consisting of circles,
squares, spirals, straight paths, etc. which have been seen over
the last 8 years or so, Thes odd shapes are far from what one
would get by shining a beam downward at some angle. One would
need, at the very least, a beam that can be scanned or a beam
that can be shaped into a very complicated arrangement of
intensities (like imaging a cookie cutter onto a field of
grain).
