China’s newly announced ZKZM-500 laser assault rifle is able to "burn through clothes in a split second… If the fabric is flammable, the whole person will be set on fire. The pain will be beyond endurance," according to a Chinese weapons expert cited in a bombshell South China Morning Post report.
News of this latest handheld directed energy weapon, described as a “laser AK-47” is now going viral as its claimed capabilities are jaw-dropping, foremost being that it can ignite materials from a half-mile away, and that it can cause the "instant carbonisation" of human skin and tissues.
The portable laser weapon's energy beam cannot be seen by the naked eye, and the device makes no sound, and if concentrated for multiple bursts can set fire to a target from nearly a kilometer away.It's ready for mass production based on the prototype built by Xian-based ZKZM Laser, and though officially billed as "non-lethal" (merely indicating its lethal applications are less immediate than regular firearms) will be strictly controlled by the Chinese government, with use by anti-terror squads in the Chinese Armed Police.Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery pack akin to those found in smartphones and can fire more than 1,000 bursts with each lasting about two seconds.The laser has been tuned to an invisible frequency, thus "nobody will know where the attack came from. It will look like an accident," a researcher cited in the report said.

World Stirred With the Spirit of War
The world is stirred with the spirit of war. The prophecy of the eleventh chapter of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place.—Testimonies for the Church 9:14. ChS 54.5
I was shown the inhabitants of the earth in the utmost confusion. War, bloodshed, privation, want, famine, and pestilence were abroad in the land…. My attention was then called from the scene. There seemed to be a little time of peace.Once more the inhabitants of the earth were presented before me; and again everything was in the utmost confusion. Strife,war, and bloodshed, with famine and pestilence, raged everywhere. Other nations were engaged in this war and confusion. War caused famine. Want and bloodshed caused pestilence. And then men’s hearts failed them for fear, “and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.”—Testimonies for the Church 1:268. ChS 55.1
