VIP terror as a way to stop the war. Weapons for the destruction of leaders of hostile states

Midnight haze descended into the tent

The lamp blew out, lit the lamp.
Holofernes eyes hot lights
They burn with Judith's speeches.
“Today, Vladyka, I will be yours.”
Spread your liberty, pour me some wine.
You are my master from now on, and I
Yours is undivided, forever yours.
From the caresses of the anticipated you got drunk ...
So is my face white as chalk?
Or am I not Judith, not Israel’s daughter?
I will die, but I will be able to help the people.
Holofernes fell asleep on bloody carpets.
Leave my soul, anxiety and fear.
Let the sword be too strong for a woman,
God help Holofernes to cut me off
The heavy head that he raised
When he listened to my fairy tales as a boy.
When he said that he loved me
He did not know that his mortal hour had struck.
Dawn penetrated the turquoise tent.
They prayed to the heads of the severed eye:
- Judith, I sent your hand,
You trampled me in an unequal battle.
Farewell to Israel’s military daughter
You do not forget Holofernes and the night!
Anna Akhmatova. Judith (canonical example of VIP terror)


Terror, from the Latin terror (fear, horror) - intimidation of political opponents through physical violence. Terror is also called the threat of physical reprisal for political or any other reasons or intimidation with the threat of reprisal or murder.

Wars are an integral reality of our world. Wars practically did not stop throughout human stories. Between the two world wars that claimed tens of millions of lives, only two decades passed. In those periods when there were no global wars, local conflicts in different parts of the planet do not stop and continue to this day. Wars always have instigators and initiators, there are always leaders or a group of leaders taking the actions necessary to start a war.

The question arises: perhaps the best solution is to eliminate the instigators of war - the leaders of hostile states, at the initial stage of the war or even before it begins? Would Moscow be burned if Napoleon was killed in the first week of the 1812 war? Would the Great Patriotic War begin in the event of the destruction of Hitler in early June 1941? Returning to our realities, we ask ourselves: a coup d'etat in Ukraine would take place in 2014, which would initiate a civil war, if Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili were destroyed on the same day, 08.08.2008, when he gave an order to attack Russian peacekeepers?

In addition to directly influencing the current conflict, eliminating hostile leaders has a “preventive” effect on other potential adversaries. With the state consistently destroying your enemies, few will want to get involved.

Given the number of war victims among both the military and civilians, I believe that the destruction of the leaders of hostile states that contribute to the outbreak of war is ethically justified. The question is how to do this. Leaders usually exercise caution, secretly change their place of residence, they are guarded by trained professionals, and the armed forces provide protection for the area of ​​residence. Applying all this in a complex, VIP goals can repel a hit or evade it.

Not everyone fits VIP terror weapon, since the defeat of the target will most likely have to be carried out in the depths of the enemy’s country, in the zone most protected and controlled by the enemy’s troops. What weapons can be used effectively for VIP terror purposes?

Sniper weapon


The classic weapons for eliminating high-priority targets are sniper rifles. The latest high-precision sniper rifles allow you to hit targets at ranges of over two kilometers.


The 14 Cheytac ultra-long-range sniper rifle SVLK-408C "Sumrak" is designed to hit targets at ranges of more than two kilometers (if you have a license for the SVLK-14C "Sumrak" long-barreled rifle can be acquired by any law-abiding citizen of the Russian Federation, this is to the question that the citizens of the Russian Federation are contraindicated because “they will shoot each other”)

Technical accuracy - 0.3 MOA \ 9 mm between the centers (5 shots per 100m).
The maximum effective range is 2500m ++.
Muzzle velocity - more than 900 m / s.
Operating temperature range - -45 \ +65 C.
Caliber - .408 Cheytac.
The length is 1570 mm.
Height - 175 mm.
The width is 96 mm.
Weight - 9 g.
Barrel length - 900 mm.
Descent effort - reg. 50-1500 g.

The classic sniper weapon has several drawbacks. First, a sniper or reconnaissance and sabotage group should be located on enemy territory, close enough to the target. Secondly, the security services are well trained against sniper threats - the object is covered from all sides, there are systems for detecting a shot and tracking the trajectory.

If we talk about hitting a target on the route, the vehicles are usually well-armored, in addition, hitting a moving target at a great distance is difficult or even impossible, given that it is not the car itself that needs to be hit, but the VIP target inside it. A solution that will allow more effective use of sniper weapons to destroy well-protected high-priority targets can be to increase the caliber of sniper rifles in combination with equipping them with guided ammunition.

South African large-caliber sniper rifle Mechem NTW-20 under the projectile 20x82 mm from the German aviation MG 151 guns and the American large-caliber sniper rifle Anzio Mag-Fed for aviation munition M61 Vulcan 20x102 mm

In Russia, a promising rifle of 14,5 mm caliber with a firing range of over 3500 meters is being developed at the Tula TsKIB SOO enterprise in Russia. According to some reports, it will not use a 14,5x114 mm cartridge, but a 14,5 mm bullet with a sleeve re-squeezed from an aviation munition of 23x152 mm or even 30x165 mm caliber. At the same time, the return of a promising 14,5 mm rifle, according to the developers, will be even less noticeable than that of the existing 12,7 mm caliber rifle.

The power of rifles of caliber 14,5 mm or more may already be enough to defeat armored vehicles of the first persons, however, there remains a problem with the accuracy of guidance. It is difficult to create guided ammunition in a rifle caliber, although the American agency DARPA tried to create guided ammunition in a 12,7 mm caliber. The projected guided bullet caliber 12,7 mm was developed in Russia. Increasing the caliber of sniper rifles to 14,5-23 mm can contribute to the fact that in the medium term, guided ammunition in these calibres will appear.


Managed Bullet Concepts

Anti-tank guided missiles


Until guided munitions for large-caliber sniper rifles have appeared, there is another type of weapon that allows you to hit the enemy with high accuracy at a great distance, in the line of sight - these are anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) launched from anti-tank missile systems (ATGMs). Modern transportable ATGMs can hit targets at ranges of about 5-10 kilometers. Close to supersonic rocket speed leaves the enemy a minimum of reaction time.


The latest modification of the portable 9P163M-2 ATGM “Cornet” allows you to hit targets at a distance of 10 kilometers

Firing Range 9P163M-2 ATGM "Cornet":
- minimum 150 m;
- maximum 10000 m.
The control system is semi-automatic, laser beam.
Penetration of a cumulative warhead for a range of 1100-1300 mm.
The TNT equivalent of a high explosive warhead is at least 7 kg.
Launcher weight - 26 kg, thermal imaging sight - 8,7 kg.


The use of PTKR against VIP goals has its drawbacks. Compared to bullets / shells of sniper weapons, the launch of ATGMs has much more unmasking factors. After detecting a flying ATGM by technical means or visually, a VIP convoy can set up a smoke screen, dramatically change the speed and course of movement. Escort vehicles can be equipped with active protection complexes (KAZ).

Both large-caliber sniper weapons and anti-tank systems require the direct presence of armed forces on enemy territory in the form of reconnaissance and sabotage groups, trained and armed rebels or mercenaries. Captured by the enemy even before the start of the active phase of their mission, they can be interrogated and used as Casus belli - a formal reason for declaring war.

To increase the likelihood of survival of an abandoned reconnaissance and sabotage unit, a large-caliber rifle or ATGM can be placed on portable portable remote-controlled weapon moduleguidance of which can be carried out remotely. After completing the mission, the remotely controlled module can be destroyed by detonating or using a thermite mixture.

Cruise missiles


Currently, there is a weapon capable of destroying the enemy thousands of kilometers from the launch site: high-precision cruise missiles (CR). On the one hand, cruise missiles have a relatively low subsonic flight speed. From the moment of launching the Kyrgyz Republic from a distance of several thousand kilometers and until the moment the target is hit, several hours will pass. During this time, the target can repeatedly change its location. Part of this problem is solved by the possibility of retargeting RC in flight. The latest versions of American Tomahawk missiles can barrage for several hours in the target area and, after receiving target designation, strike as soon as possible. Presumably, such a function is also available for Russian KR (or it will be implemented in the near future).


The American Tomahawk cruise missile and the Caliber complex Russian cruise missile are similar to each other as twins, their characteristics are in many respects similar

It must be understood that as a weapon against VIP targets, the Kyrgyz Republic can only be used in countries with focal and / or underdeveloped air defense (air defense). Otherwise, flying missiles will be detected in advance, which will lead to their destruction by air defense forces, evacuation or the movement of the VIP target into the bunker.

To increase the likelihood of hidden penetration of the Kyrgyz Republic into enemy territory, their design should be developed with the widespread use of low visibility technologies. This approach is implemented in the latest American rocket AGM-158B JASSM-ER. The combination of low visibility, long flight range, the possibility of retargeting in flight and a highly efficient homing head makes the AGM-158B JASSM-ER one of the best RCs for destroying protected high-priority targets.


JASSM cruise missile (ER)

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


Cruise missiles with the ability to retarget in flight in many ways have become a harbinger of another similar type of weapon - unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with a long flight duration. Russian and American diplomats are still arguing over whether to attribute long-range UAVs to the Kyrgyz Republic or not.

Modern UAVs of the MALE class (Medium Altitude, Long Endurance) and HALE (High Altitude, Long Endurance) are capable of being in the air for several days. Compared to “disposable” cruise missiles, UAVs can be equipped with more advanced reconnaissance equipment. In the event of the presence of gaps in the enemy’s air defense system, long-range UAVs can covertly reach the range of use of their weapons along the optimal route using uneven terrain. Preliminary target detection can be issued by the reconnaissance and sabotage unit or a recruited agent, after which the UAV, operated by the operator, will carry out an additional search and defeat the target.


One of the most warring UAVs in the world - American MQ-9 Reaper


Russian long-range UAV Altius-M (Altair) and its proposed armament - high-precision gliding munition 9-A-7759 Thunder

As in the case of cruise missiles for operations to eliminate VIP-goals, the use of technology to reduce visibility on UAVs will be important. Work in this direction is actively ongoing in the United States. In Russia, the Sukhoi company is developing an inconspicuous UAV S-70 Hunter.


The prototype and prototype of the Russian inconspicuous UAV S-70 "Hunter"

A critical drawback of Russian UAVs is the lack of a global high-speed satellite communications system, which limits the range of UAVs to the range of a stable signal from ground-based communication centers or air command centers / repeaters.

Small and very small UAVs launched directly by the operator from the reconnaissance and sabotage group can also be used to eliminate VIPs. In fact, small UAVs can be compared with some conventional equivalent ATGM. The development and use of small and ultra-small UAVs for warfare is a promising area of ​​arms development, which we will discuss in a separate article.

Returning to the UAV with a long flight duration, we can say that their shortcomings are somewhat similar to the shortcomings of the Kyrgyz Republic: low flight speed, allowing VIP targets to leave the affected area, the ability to detect and destroy the enemy in advance, the ability to act only against countries with limited development Air defense.

The best weapon for hitting VIP targets would be one that was almost impossible to dodge, and it would also be extremely difficult to repel the blow delivered by such a weapon. Such weapons already exist.

Hypersonic weapon


Hypersonic missiles flying at speeds in excess of five sound speeds allow you to create a situation where the VIP target does not have time to respond to the attack and leave the affected area. Hypersonic weapons are one of the hallmarks of high-tech armed forces of the XNUMXst century.

In Russia, the X-47M2 “Dagger” hypersonic aviation missile system has been developed, which includes an aircraft carrier and a hypersonic aeroballistic missile moving along a quasi-ballistic trajectory with a maximum speed of over 10 Mach (speed of sound). MiG-31K airplanes and Tu-22M3 long-range bomber are used as a carrier. It is possible that in the future "Dagger" will be placed on other media.


MiG-31K and Tu-22M3 combat aircraft with a dagger of a dagger complex

Even more impressive features hypersonic guided planning warhead missile complex "Vanguard", moving at a speed of over 20 Machs. Unfortunately, Avangard is used only for strategic containment tasks and, accordingly, is implemented only in the version with nuclear equipment, although in conventional equipment he could be an extremely effective weapon, including for solving tasks to defeat VIP goals.


Hypersonic guided planning combat unit of the Avangard missile system

Another formidable weapon for hitting VIP targets can be the promising 3M22 Zircon hypersonic missile. Presumably, a direct-flow rocket engine is installed on the 3M22 Zircon rocket, which will allow it to carry out a long flight at a speed of more than 8 Machs. Initially, Zircon is supposed to be used from ships and submarines, in the future the complex can be placed on aircraft and ground carriers.

Far from every power can repulse a strike or evade a strike with hypersonic weapons. With a launch range of a hypersonic missile or block from a distance of 1000 kilometers to the reaction, the VIP target will have about ten minutes.


Flight time of a hypersonic missile / block at a range of 1000 kilometers

In fact, the VIP target will have even less time to change location - just a few minutes, depending on how far hypersonic ammunition is detected. During this time, the VIP target should receive information about the strike, make a decision and leave the location. An accidental or artificial delay at any stage will lead to the destruction of the VIP target.

Strike from orbit


36th US President Lyndon Johnson said: "Who owns the cosmos, that owns the world". In the XXI century, this phrase may become relevant as never before in history. Without delving into the importance of space infrastructure for the armed forces at the present time, it is necessary to mention projects to deploy shock systems in space.

These include the project “Arrows of God” (“Wands of God”), within the framework of which it was planned to put into orbit platforms capable of striking targets on the surface with massive rods of tungsten.


The concept of the orbital strike platform “Wands of God”

No less interest is shown by the military of the leading countries of the world to laser weapons that can be placed in orbit around the earth.

Of course, orbital strike platforms with kinetic and laser weapons are not a matter of the present day, but in 20-30 years they may well become a reality, and on the scale of history this period passes by in an instant.


Orbital laser platforms can become a terrible weapon of VIP-terror

However, already in our time, the American unmanned reusable spacecraft X-37, which is capable of vigorously changing its orbit in the altitude range from 200 to 750 kilometers, has become frequent in space. The spacecraft is currently believed to be used as a test platform and / or for reconnaissance. However, the presence of a compartment that can hold up to 900 kilograms of payload potentially allows you to place weapons on the X-37 to destroy objects in / from space, or at least prototypes of such weapons.

conclusions


Destruction of highly protected VIP goals - leaders of hostile states can stop the war before it begins or contribute to its end. The mere possibility of striking non-nuclear weapons against highly protected targets with hypersonic weapons or weapons placed in the orbit of the planet, within a few minutes after giving a command, can become a serious deterrent to prevent enemy aggression.

More traditional weapons may be used against countries with outdated unbalanced armed forces: cruise missiles and long-range UAVs, reconnaissance and sabotage units equipped with anti-tank systems and large-caliber sniper rifles placed on remotely controlled weapon modules.

An equally important task is the development of weapons and methods of protection against VIP-terror from potential adversaries and terrorist organizations.

      "Your program has a big swing!" - said General De Gaulle to his adjutant when he exclaimed - "Death to fools!" The author seems to adore everything grand and loud! But I would advise you to pay attention to the elimination of Hugo Chavez by the Americans by irradiating him with radioactive substances! It turned out modestly, without noise and dust, and most importantly, you can't imagine anything, although everyone knows that this is their handiwork!

          Radiation sickness can be seized by receiving a shock dose of radiation here and now. And if a low-power source of radiation is used for the time necessary to destroy immunity, plus affecting the most vulnerable (predisposed) organ, then cancer is guaranteed!

            far-fetched. To obtain the accumulated effect, microdoses will have to do this for many years. If the doses are increased (to speed up the process), then the victim will receive either departure or radiation. In this case, traces are quite simple to detect in his body.

              It is enough to see what doses patients with oncology receive and what radiation they emit after the procedures to understand that this is practically unrealistic. The body adapts to relatively small doses - people live fine in the highlands where they receive a dose of 100-200 micro-roentgen, and cancer patients after the procedures themselves emit 400-800 micro-roentgen, and any sensor at the airport will react to them.

              It can be killed not by microdoses, but by short but powerful radiation.

              And you were not surprised that at the same time as Chavez, other anti-American presidents of Latin America fell ill with cancer? Yes Silva in Brazil and his succeeding Dilma Rousseff. Morales in Bolivia had nose cancer! The president of Argentina Kirchner also caught cancer! All of them are united by the fact that they opposed US policy in Latin America! And as for the ears drawn, it is up to you to believe or not!

    The author got confused in three pines - the Russian Federation does not fundamentally carry out terrorist attacks in peacetime. Another thing is sabotage against military personnel of the enemy and the bodies of the occupying power in the conditions of war.

    Moreover, in South Ossetia and Abkhazia in 2008, Russia carried out the task of protecting our peacekeeping forces strictly within the framework of the international mandate of the Russian Federation, and did not wage war with Georgia, as the author of the article seems. The assassination of the President of Georgia in these circumstances would be a clear excess of force.

    The same thing (the absence of hostilities on the part of Russia) was demonstrated in 2014 in the Crimea and Donbass. In the first region, Russian troops acted on the basis of an agreement on the deployment of our troops on the territory of the peninsula, in relation to the second region, Russia provided humanitarian assistance to both residents and authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, as well as military personnel of Ukraine who crossed the border. These actions on the part of Russia were carried out in the absence of legitimate authority in Ukraine after the coup, and with the sanction of the head of the Ukrainian state, President Yanukovych.

    Those. neither in the first nor in the second case was a war declared by any of the parties to the conflict.

      That is, bombing airbases, shooting down planes is normal, but isn’t filling up the main “bad guy”? There are facts - the attack of Georgian troops on Russian. For the United States, this would be quite an excuse to bomb the presidential palace. Zde

      These are all crafty excuses. Now no one declares war, but there is an objective reality. If, after an attack on our peacekeepers within 30 minutes, Saakashvili’s all missiles were covered with missiles (even if within 4 hours, then there weren’t any daggers), then the war would end on that very day.

      It’s not even that the casualties would be an order of magnitude smaller, but that any leader who wants (or is invited to) speak out against Russia will try on this situation himself and it will be much more difficult to convince him. And yes, it’s important here to be consistent so that no one doubts - “what if it’s a ride, it’s possible with the Russians, they are easy-going.” Then you look and the Turks would not shoot down the plane.

        Wars are now declared (suddenly) - but within the framework of the UN mandate (wars in Iraq, Yugoslavia and Libya). There are, of course, opposite cases - Syria, for example, but there first a civil war took place between the Sunnis and Shiites, and then foreign actors pulled themselves together.

        And yes - you still could not understand the difference between war and hostilities (in Chechnya, Donbass, Philippines, South Sudan, Palestine, etc.)

      These are agent methods, and military were considered. The fundamental difference in speed of implementation. With a hypersonic block, the target can be covered in 30 minutes, and an undercover operation can be worked out for years.

    Diversion against the leaders of states in war is rarely carried out because of the additional dynamics of hostilities (such as rallying around a new leader) or the remaining leadership escaping responsibility (such as the first person who has already gotten his fault).

    For the second reason, Stalin canceled the assassination attempt on Hitler (who attended all boxing tournaments in Berlin) of a Soviet boxer who surrendered allegedly out of hatred of the Soviet regime, but was an agent of Sudoplatov, prepared exclusively for the assassination of Hitler.

        All this requires a lot of time, and the conflict may already end.

        However, this does not mean that the "bad guys" then need to be forgiven. In this respect, I am impressed by the actions of Israel regarding the surviving Nazis, Armenia in relation to the Armenian genocide in Turkey. The most guilty were found and destroyed.

            This is true, but we also have problems with bantustans. In the US, they are not stupid either. It is not for nothing that 10 or 15 years ago they adopted a "new triad", which includes the classic nuclear triad, global intelligence networks and conventional strategic weapons.

    The targets for VIP-terror should not be formal leaders of states ("talking heads"), but beneficiaries... Those for whom this war is like a mother. In times of peace, they usually look like respected businessmen, far from politics. But this is mimicry. Their list is publicly available - it is regularly published by Forbes. As they say, if you destroy a hundred or two of the richest bourgeois, then the wars will stop. The only problem is that too many potential "targets" may end up inside their own country.

      I wrote about this in the article "Power Conversion". That part of nuclear weapons should be re-targeted at the instigators of the war, so that they do not think to sit out in bunkers in New Zealand, after they, for example, play off the United States and the Russian Federation.

    The deliberate murder of a politician or other person engaged in public activities for political, ideological or military reasons, which is carried out in order to achieve a political goal by individuals, terrorist organizations, is called political murder. Political murder is not terror, it is terrorism.

          OK. We will develop in more detail.

          Turks bring down our plane. We do not wipe ourselves, but we shoot down any of their aircraft, at least 1 mm flying in the territory of the SAR (since we are legitimate there, with the permission of the current government).

          After that, we get intelligence information that Erdogan is completely crazy and wants to attack both our bases in Syria and the Black Sea Fleet together with Crimea, and he is negotiating with Ukraine on this subject.

          Your actions? Sit and wait?

          Why not destroy the possessed one before the start of the conflict, or, as a last resort, in the first hours of the war (and formally he will not declare it), if possible?

          By what international standards does the US hammer on anyone they want? And even they fly everywhere where they can not shoot down. All the so-called international norms are grossly violated, but everyone is silent, because they can’t do anything. When Israel pounds Syria bless you, is it terrorism? And he considers this a preventive self-defense.

          Here we can only agree with R. Heinlein that the law of force is primary - norms, laws or laws that are not backed by the force of a treaty do not work.

        It was necessary to kill in a few months, or even in 1940. And then, an investigation will take place, and the Germans will conclude that the Russians were behind the murder of the Fuhrer (and, it is necessary, the penguins from ARKTIDA). Please - what is not an excuse for war?

            Needed. It's one thing to invade the USSR without declaring war, waving the mythical "The USSR wanted to attack us itself." Another thing is direct evidence that the insidious Russians killed the German Fuhrer. Well, since the Russians are such bastards, then the actions of the Germans in relation to them are completely justified (the usual norms of war do not apply to terrorists). In general, it is much easier to conduct a propaganda campaign. It is not a fact of course that it would change globally (like Sweden and / or Turkey enters the war, Great Britain does not become an ally of the USSR), but the Germans earn good points.

            .
            The assassination of the Führer on June 21–20, when the entire military machine was put into action, and the war with the USSR does not expect to be difficult, is unlikely to change the situation. Yes, there are various options - for example, to go to peace with the USSR in August, realizing that the blitzkrieg is failing. But, if the war was already prevented, then the Fuhrer must be killed somewhere in 1940.

    The main problem is not how to kill! And who to kill !!! By killing Hitler you would not get rid of the people who stood behind him and whose goals they are pursuing .... would live on and a new Fuhrer would appear, and there would be a war with a new face, but with the same goals. And if the whole chain of hostile elements is revealed, then be sure to act on them and not necessarily with weapons, sometimes there’s a recount.

          The agreement between the allies and the USSR provided for the surrender of Germany, and there were no options there.
          But the consequences of surrender, of course, would be milder.
          This would not be a surrender of the Nazis, but a surrender of those who killed Hitler and stopped the war, which would obviously have positive consequences for the Germans.
          And the conspirators understood this very well. Plus, it was for them personally.

        That is, you push back the promise of the article?
        the best solution is the elimination of war heaters - the leaders of hostile states, at the initial stage of the war or even before it begins

        And the assassinations of Hitler were made too late, when the flywheel of war had long been working to its fullest, and the fate of Germany was a foregone conclusion

    In Africa and the Arab countries, quite often, the second person of the state carries out a coup against the first.

    VIP terror as a way to stop the war. Weapons for the destruction of leaders of hostile states

    The author in the headline makes stupidity. The liquidation of a state leader is not an act of terrorism, but a special operation. The author puts on one board terrorists and special forces.
    The author himself writes:
    Terror, from the Latin terror (fear, horror) - intimidation of political opponents through physical violence. Terror is also called the threat of physical reprisal for political or any other reasons or intimidation with the threat of reprisal or murder.

    And the destruction of the state leader is not a deterrence, it is an attempt to change power in the state, to change the political course of the state, i.e. - revolution, or at least a coup. The goals are completely different.

      Special Forces is during the war and in uniform, under the Hague Convention.

      State terrorism is also defined in international law. The perpetrators of this "act" are employees or agents of special services.
      For their state, this act will be considered a special operation, for the state against which an act was committed (liquidation of an official, military, destruction of an object, etc.), it will be considered a sabotage, terrorist attack.
      Quote: "During the war, the laws are silent" / Mark Anneus Lucian /
      Also applicable in the modern world, because the so-called Cold War continues ...

      During the French Revolution, terror was the official instrument of government of the republic after the uprising in transition to combat anarchy.

      For me, the article is not clear. A manual for a "liquidator" or reasoning how best to kill ?!

    In addition to directly influencing the current conflict, eliminating hostile leaders has a “preventive” effect on other potential adversaries. Few people want to get in touch with a state that is consistently destroying its enemies.
    The elder of the mountain thought so too. But Hulagu was not afraid of the Fedayins ibn Sabbakh and the Tatar-Mongols massacred the Ismailis.
    The classic weapons for eliminating high-priority targets are sniper rifles.
    Nothing like this. In my opinion, before Kennedy, no one considered a sniper rifle as a means against the president or the king. More and more bombs were thrown. Or they shot from a pistol ("Seven bullets, as in Sarajevo").

      When there was a king, then the tanks were not considered as weapons, more and more horses. Everything has its time.

    The author needs to be reminded that narcotic drugs can be used to destroy the unwanted.
    For example, assassins used narcotic drugs to stupefy young people. Then these young people were directed to kill the ruler.
    Then, the Opium Wars. They actively waged a drug war against the leaders of China, actively planting them in hashish.

    Then Russia. In the 90s, promising young leaders were addicted to drugs, it became a kind of "fashion." But actually this is the destruction of VIP.

    Moreover, unlike rifles and missiles, special operations with the help of drugs can be carried out in peacetime, without running into a military response.

    But it seemed to me that this was not a way to stop, but to start a war. However, the author convincingly substantiated from a scientific point of view. And if vice versa?

    Thanks for the good article. However, I would continue this list, because in addition to what you have listed, there are other ways (possibly hypothetical, though ...).

    1) At one time, a whole galaxy of Latin American leaders was covered by a sharp incidence of cancer. Given the close monitoring of such individuals, this was strange and gave rise to a number of thoughts about the fact that the United States developed a program for targeted high-impact exposure (radiation or another way) that could cause such a disease in a VIP person.
    It is difficult to say whether it is true or not, but it is potentially possible, because science has good experience with carcinogenic factors, which could be used by the CIA.

    2) Pathogenic microorganisms - the pedigree of the heads of state is known to a certain extent, and obtaining closely related biomaterials to create a targeted strain is probably not a significant problem for large goals in the struggle between large states. If we are talking about leaders in their ages, there are a lot of possibilities (indirect information, rumors, insider information) for identifying specific diseases and vulnerabilities of a specific target - and the development of bio-weapons for a specific vulnerable point can provide an additional guarantee of incapacitation.
    I would like to draw attention to the fact that in our time there is more than enough information and technological developments in order for even small states, even, probably, closed extremist groups with sources of stable financing, to take up the development of this.

    3) Super-toxic substances in the form of aerosols or contact poisons. Similarly, it is possible to select a substance taking into account the "pain points" of the target. Large states, alas and ah, have large developments in specialized poisons and toxins, often these developments are “leaked” with specialists to the black market, which, in principle, makes it possible, in case of anything, to excuse themselves from an international legal point of view.
    Considering a wide range of contacts of goals, it is theoretically possible to "lead" not even a goal, but a number of these contacts, having a worked out option for using "into the dark" or otherwise. This whole situation with Novichok, for all the farce, shows that it can be very lethal.

    In my opinion, the use of large products in the form of drones, and even more so hypersound, is a bit of an overkill in terms of point elimination. According to the remnants of the product, it is possible to determine the manufacturer - then the consequences.
    Probably in the foreseeable future, we can also see some variations of the compact moving landmine, the sophistication of ground platforms and progress on batteries will contribute to the appearance of such a threat.

    The most piquant thing is that a picture from the American science fiction film "Runaway" (1984) is posted once as an example of "smart bullets".

    Destruction of VIP targets - poisons - works fine so far.
    Women are indispensable for discredit.
    Protection - examples of effectiveness in eliminating the protected are also sufficient.

    And you say rockets.

    And you can also bait the object for humanitarian reasons or limit yourself to an act of intimidation aimed at one of the relatives of the VIP target, so that she will be shocked and surrendered.
