Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhh, Vienna!

Probably from eating too many of those little sausages.

Didn't they finally conclude the Cuba thing was actually some kind of a side effect of some immunizations the staff had taken? Or did I get that wrong? Certainly, magical microwave death rays are more exciting, but isn't that all it turned out to be?

They probably got too close to Russians with umbrellas....

The article never states whether it is the Vienna in Austria or the one in Virginia.

"Mysterious health incidents" after drinking this stuff were well-known back in my day.

Pretty sure it turned out to be true but they cannot figure out responsible party.

I wouldn't doubt at all that Russia has been outsourcing its directed energy weaponry to 3rd party countries or factions that are are aligned with the same goals of farking over America. They love this stuff because it's fundamentally untraceable, they got over the Polonium fetish because while effective it's a detectable radioisope

So you don't believe in LRADs or ADSs and refer to them as 'magical' but - absent any verification whatsoever - claim that it was all a cause of *checks notes* "a side effect of some immunizations the staff had taken""?

Or were you just askering querstionz?

When I saw this being reported on the news last night, they were making it sound like there were far more incidents than just this one, and it spans multiple years and multiple embassies in multiple countries.

If that is true, and they are all related, then this IS alarming, and we probably should be concerned.

Maybe it's time to bring back "food tasters".

EMF?  That's just unbelievable.

A handful of the impacted personnel have had to be medevacked from Vienna and are now receiving medical assistance in the US, the sources said.


The article says they had to be evacuated to the US. So really, it could be either Austria or Virginia.

Probably should have some sort of Russian death ray detector/jammer/detector detector. Whatever it takes we can't have a death ray gap!

That's even dumber than before when people like you blamed it on the Cubans. Yeah, the most aggressive military in the world doesn't have this magic scifi weapon but these countries get blamed?

That would be crazy if Russian diplomats here and abroad started becoming suddenly gay for instance.
That wouldnt go down very well in macho man obsessed Russia.
Although Putin running around everywhere with his shirt off always looks like hes on his way to an audition for The Village People.

Are they sure it isn't just spider or snake bites? Everything that walks or crawls in that country is deadly.

Even though I promised to only use my powers for peaceful purposes, I think it's my duty to this nation that I don my leather pants and stroll around in front of the Russian embassy for a while.

It's a shame it has come to this and I must now weaponize my sexiness.

Nope, I never heard that story. Care to provide some citations, because all indications are that they don't know what it was. Three pages into various Google searches reveal no stories attributing it to immunizations.

For the record, it's not that I don't believe an emf based attack isn't possible, I have to wonder how practical it would be to execute since the gear I've seen is typically large and needs a not insubstantial sized power supply... Can one be made for covert deployment? Possible.  But  now it's something more like a sniper weapon, and how would that work to affect many multiple victims, nearly simultaneously, from a distance, from concealment. It' not impossible, no, but, it doesn't sound easy to me. Much more likely, it's something chemical or biological, in the environment, or introduced thru food or water or an aerosol, maybe a contact poison in wall paint or something... There is historical precedent for that.

Cite some blurb I barely remember and was seeking confirmation on? I ain't got no time for that. What was the last official us gov explanation for the Cuban embassy cases?
