You don't know that; you are just speculating.  Conveniently and expediently,
as it turns out.  The US government in fact devoted a lot of secret study to
determining what the Soviets were up to (for years, and without notifying the
embassy employees).  And you are assuming there is only *one* reason for the
microwave bombardment.  The Soviets at that time, at least in the open literature,
were apparently ahead of the US in the study of the behavioral effects of
microwaves.  To pretend they knew nothing of the potential for behavioral
and health effects is ludicrous.

Look up the health statistics of the former embassy workers.  Read some
of the reports of the employees.  What sort of spy games do you think were
being played, and what sort of tech do you think was used?  Americans love
"Q," the spy who outfits James Bond, but they seem to think no other
countries have similar people.  (And they seem to think that such
technologies are never used to harass and repress the domestic

You seem to have an agenda, and you do not know what you are talking
about.  Gosh, someone with a microwave oven can harass a person
in their home now, but those Soviet KGB agents never even thought about
that sort of harassment against the US embassy in 1975 during the
Cold War...
