'Havana syndrome': US baffled after new cases in Europe

Four more US diplomats working in Geneva and Paris have fallen ill with a suspected neurological illness known as "Havana syndrome", US media report. Three diplomats became sick in the Swiss city and one in the French capital last summer, with some 200 people affected over five years.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the American government was working to get to the bottom of the mystery. There are fears an adversary may have targeted diplomats with microwaves. Mr Blinken said the issue had been raised with Russia but no determination had been made.

[...] A more innocent, but also unproven, theory is that those who got sick suffered from a mass condition brought on by some stressful underlying situation.

    I don't have time now, but I'll let any one of the other people holding "regular" jobs explain it to you. I don't understand the anger vented at civil servants and the implication that they have "gold plated" plans over all others when the majority of skilled jobs have this benefit, blue collar or white collar. The fact that you don't get this benefit on a minimum wage job is a valid topic of discussion, but it doesn't excuse your stupidity and ignorance (you own those yourself).

    "civil servants"? lmao. You work for the enemies of this nation. You are also engaged in organized crime. If you have to use the threat of force to get your paycheck, then that is not a job. That is a crime, and it has a name: Extortion.
