Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Can The Russians Cripple U.S. Military Electronics?
Recently the Russians said their electronic warfare technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless. A narrator stated: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralize any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.”
The Russians claim a single Russian war plane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling its systems and leaving it helpless. (Your Watchman reported on this at the time. You can find the article in the archives.)
The Russians also claim they are capable to creating electronic jamming domes over their bases that make them invisible on radar screens.
The Russians quote General Frank Gorenc as saying: “Russian electronic weapons completely paralyze the functioning of American electronic equipment installed on missiles, aircraft and ships.”
The reporter adds: “You don’t need to have expensive weapons to win a war, powerful radio-electronic jamming is enough.”
