Gov'ts developing 'super soldiers' for tomorrow's battlefield

The French armed forces have been cleared for the research and development of biologically enhanced soldiers. They aim to develop implants and other technologies which would improve battlefield performance. Meanwhile, a top US intelligence official says China has done human testing to create biologically enhanced super soldiers. Is this all-science fiction, or is it a significant potential threat to national security? Former US Army combat veteran Adam Roosevelt shares his insights on News.Views.Hughes. 

But first, economist and founder of Democracy at Work Prof. Richard Wolff and Public Policy analyst and expert Dr Michael Busler weigh in on the proposed $900 billion stimulus bill intended to rescue the pandemic-slammed US economy and help struggling Americans. Then author and filmmaker Sean Stone shares his Hollywood-insider’s perspective in discussing the disturbing case of fashion icon Peter Nygard, indicted this week on sex trafficking charges recalling the abominable crimes of the infamous Jeffrey Epstein.
