United States is considering creating

Researchers could be considering doing genetic manipulation in the U.S. to make super soldiers

According to a report by three researchers at the California State Polytechnic University, the agencies involved in these projects evaluated using drugs, prosthetics, gene manipulation and other techniques on their soldiers. This is not the first time that the U.S. would experiment with their soldiers.

The U.S. Army is evaluating in order to develop a project to equip its soldiers with new genes that would allow them to become super soldiers that do not suffer from fear, and have more endurance and strength.

A series of experiments in the 1970s aimed at developing hallucinogenic weapons, the Pentagon gave soldiers LSD - apparently without the subjects fully understanding the consequences of using the drug. During the Cold War U.S. troops were also exposed to nerve gas, psychochemicals and other toxic substances on an experimental basis and without their consent."

For those who conducted this most recent research, if carried out in a future existence with these mutant soldiers...there should be an international body that regulates howfar changes can be made in genes and also respond when these soldiers suffer or experience damage to their health.

Despite these warnings, the Armed Forces of the United States has used methods of drugs and stimulants to keep active component forces in the field.

It has been known that their pilots involved in long duration missions are prescribed Dexedrine, a drug that according to the chief military command, allows them to be vigilant and alert for an extended period of time.

U.S. medical organizations have said that Dexedrine can cause side effects such as depression, insomnia, hypertension and other health conditions.

The Food and Drug Administration warns that Dexedrine can cause "new or worse aggressive behavior or hostility," thus providing grounds for the soldier to absolve himself of blame in the incident.

Investigators have requested the government to establish programs aimed at improving the human quality of of life for the military.

An enhanced soldier could also become an enhanced criminal.
