Release of Deadly GMO Bioweapons on Humanity is 'Not a Matter of if' But 'of When,' Warns Former Soviet Scientist
(NaturalNews) It is only a matter of time before highly advanced
biological weapons are unleashed upon humanity, if they haven't been
already. Former Soviet scientist Dr. Kanatjan Alibekov says genetically
modified (GM) bioweapons made from super-virulent disease strains are
par for the course when it comes to advanced weapons systems, and the
use of such bioweapons is an ever-present threat.
Dr. Alibekov should know -- for years, he served as the First Deputy Director of the Biopreparat, which was the Soviet Union's biological weapons program. What many people might assume to be science fiction is more real than ever, he says, including programs that involve splicing foreign genes into viruses like smallpox in order to make them far more contagious and deadly than they would be otherwise.
During a recent segment on PBS Frontline, Dr. Alibekov unpacked his native country's approach to developing biological weapons in the past, explaining how they were used as strategic warfare tools, despite the human cost. Though supposedly abandoned in the late 1980s, these weapons programs would not be that difficult to restart, he says, both in Russia and in the U.S.
"Biological weapons were considered strategic weapons," he stated. "The completely finished and accomplished biological weapons were as follows: smallpox biological weapon, then plague biological weapon, anthrax biological weapon, Venezuelan equine encephalitis biological weapon, tularemia biological weapon, brucellosis biological weapon, and some others."
Ebola biological weapons developed as early as 1970sAs far back as the 1970s, the Soviet Union was busy trying to develop a weaponized form of Ebola virus, which is chillingly relevant in light of today's world events. The idea that a supposed bat-borne virus, in this case, could be deliberately used by governments to target enemy nations or even enemies of the state is nothing new, maintains Dr. Alibekov
"In the 70s and beginning of 80s the Soviet Union started developing new biological weapons--Marburg infection biological weapon, Ebola infection biological weapon, Machupo infection, [or] Bolivian hemorrhagic biological weapon, and some others," claimed Dr. Alibekov.
Have these programs really ended? It depends on who you talk to. But the technology is there to produce a bounty of biological weapons in a snap, should the need arise. And research is still taking place to advance this technology and keep up in the arms race, which in this context refers to biological arms rather than traditional weaponry.
"The problem now is [that] practically all the countries in the world understand that biological weapons are a very serious threat," added Dr. Alibekov during his interview. "A lot of countries are trying to develop biological weapons, and for these countries, the Soviet Union was some kind of role model for developing these weapons, because [it] was able to develop one of the most powerful and sophisticated programs in the world."
Ebola is a GMO that was manufactured on purpose?Corroborating the sordid history of Ebola in particular, Dr. Robert Strecker in his book Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola -- Nature, Accident or Intentional? explains how "AIDS-like viruses" were manufactured by both the U.S. and the Soviet Union during the early 1970s as biological weapons. Such viruses include what we have now been conditioned to accept as Ebola, the mystery disease that supposedly comes from bats.
"[Dr. Strecker] had confirmed the existence of an American Military-Medical-Industry that conducts biological weapons tests under the guise of administering vaccinations to control diseases and improve the health of 'black Africans overseas,'" wrote Dr. Cyril Broderick, a professor of plant pathology at the University of Liberia's College of Agriculture and Forestry, for Liberia's Daily Observer.
