HOT STUFF: Sickening Legacy of Biowarfare
The Sickening Legacy of Biowarfare
By Iona Miller 8/2009
“In vast laboratories in the Ministry of Peace, and in experimental stations, teams of experts are indefatigably at work searching for new and deadlier gases; or for soluble poisons capable of being produced in such quantities as to destroy the vegetation of whole continents; or for breeds of disease germs immunized against all possible antibodies.” –George Orwell. 1984
“Hot Stuff” is the trade term given to toxic, radiological, infectious and lethal biological and chemical agents by those in the Bioweapons Industrial Complex. Bioweaponeers include scientists, intelligence, politicos and businessmen. Drug companies and labs are the military-industrial nexus point. Biowarfare is part of the Holy Trinity: Gold, Oil, and Drugs – the ‘GOD’ to whom we all pledge allegiance through our lifestyle.
Every war has its stories of overt and covert germ warfare from infected animals and blankets, to mustard gas, to Agent Orange, to modern hypermutable and hybrid agents. Even computers are subject to viral attack and societies are vulnerable to memes, informational viruses with variable scales of ‘truthiness,’ misinformation and disinformation.
The body politic is infected. Biology has lost its innocence to a slow-motion plague that never ends and to multiple assaults on good air, good water and good earth. WWIII is the silent war for your mindbody. Economic collapse, mind control, pandemic, famine and drought are its weapons. With or without cryptocratic coordination these forces are in play. Virtual tactics drive control architectures. The virtualities of scenarios collapse into contingent realities and actualities. The modeling of civilian populations remains deterministic, if nonlinear.
Global control establishments are run on the principles of chaos theory. Biowarfare is the strange attractor of global architectronics. Instigating turbulence is a sinister means of social control, paradoxically, where one becomes one’s own enemy. Regulating flow translates to institutional disturbance and policing populations.
Control of free information flow is the first casualty as state violence becomes more fluid and intensifies. Brian Massumi describes programmed catastrophe as “virtualization of state violence, its becoming immanent to every co-ordinate of the social field, as unbounded space of fear.” Fear is the state-space.
Programmed catastrophe, the “accidental” architecture of control is riddled with conceptual viruses. Chaos theory demonstrates that as systemic processes cascade into dysfunctionality we are thrown into chaos and catastrophe. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Fasten your seatbelts for social turbulence.
In complex dynamics, efforts to control the human security system perturb it, feeding the disorder itself. The switch flips from welfare to warfare. The war machine gradually infects all aspects of the state. Control dissolves in the vortical dynamics of population turbulence, cascading from micro to global scales. It has been said that the poison is in the cure. Is it also post-postmodern truism that the crime is in the solution?
“Accident,” derived from the Latin accidens, signals the unanticipated, unexpected – the surprise failure of a system or product. Virilio recognized that the production of substance is simultaneously the invention of that substance’s accident. Failure seems programmed into the product from the moment of its production or implementation . . . breakdown or failure is less the deregulation of production than the production of a specific failure, or even a partial or total destruction.”(Virilio 1993 211)
“It is in order to function that a social machine must not function well.”(Deleuze & Guattari 1983 151) In this mutant neo-functionalism, megamachines function by breaking down; “Far from being a pathological consequence, the disequilibrium is functional and fundamental.” But radical surveillance becomes paramount. In the art of war, the only way to track your enemy is to become it. Paradoxically, to defend against microbial mayhem, we have created gigantic Frankenstein monsters that can eat us alive.
Extreme events, expected or unexpected, can cascade into consequences where a single occurance avalanches into a series of dynamic system failures, including economic and financial values. If we “follow the money,” financial catastrophe is the consequence of a realignment of the connection between economic and financial value, with economic value often not being destroyed. After disaster there is gradual self-organization of remaining elements.
Tempest in a Testube
Biowarfare (BW) exploits both naturally occurring and genetically manipulated organisms. As for all wars, controversial toxic agents were created for the drug war: paraquat for marijuana, Fusarium fungus for cocaine and synthetic herbicides and the fungus Pleospora papaveracea for opium poppies. A dangerous wheat stem rust threatened wheat fields in Iran in 2008. Is it a covert attack or coincidence?
According to Dr. Mark Wheelis, “Anti-agricultural biowarfare and bioterrorism differ significantly from the same activities directed against humans; for instance, there exist a variety of possibilities for economic gain for perpetrators, and the list of possible perpetrators includes corporations, which may have state-of-the-art technical expertise. Furthermore, attacks are substantially easier to do: the agents aren’t necessarily hazardous to humans; delivery systems are readily available and unsophisticated; maximum effect may only require a few cases; delivery from outside the target country is possible; and an effective attack can be constructed to appear natural. This constellation of characteristics makes biological attack on the agricultural sector of at least some countries a very real threat, perhaps more so than attack on the civilian population.” http://nwrage.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=105&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0 )
Clandestine use of biologicals is bioterrorism. Secrecy and contamination are a deadly threat. Some call the prospect of mandatory swine flu vaccination bioterrorism. BW is a multidimensional problem crossing many legal and illegal domains – human and civil rights, trade, disarmament, medicine, population control, etc. It is often tied up with other covert operations, nuclear and chemical interventions. Secret medical experiments are not new. They continue on Q fever, Valley Fever, Tularemia (rabbit fever) and more.
Each pathogen requires its own vector or delivery system. Some can be activated only in a field of specific electro-magnetic radiation. Many BW drugs, such as LSD, STP and Ecstasy, escaped their military and intelligence applications to become recreational, adding an “edge” to the “hot stuff” nickname. Counterculture was a meme fostered by Tavistock Institute and the CIA.
A dauntingly large number of infectious organisms and biological toxins can be used to attack people, animals and plants. Biothreats for humans encompass all branches of the microbial kingdom, including: bacteria (anthrax, plague, brucellosis, tularaemia); rickettsia (typhus, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Q Fever); viruses (smallpox, influenza, dengue fever, various encephalitis viruses and the haemorrhagic fever agents, Ebola, Marburg and Lassa); fungi (coccidioidomycosis); and toxins (botulinum, Staphylococcal enterotoxin b, shigella, ricin, aflatoxin).
In 2002, the NATO biowarfare defense handbook listed 31 human pathogens of concern. The grim list of potential biological weapons includes hepatitis A, B and C, influenza A, Lyme disease, dengue fever and salmonella (contained in BioSafetyLevel-2 labs). Anthrax, West Nile virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, Eastern equine encephalitis, SARS, tuberculosis, typhus, Coxiella burnetii, Rift Valley fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and yellow fever (BSL-3 labs). Bolivian and Argentine hemorrhagic fevers, Marburg virus, Ebola virus, Lassa fever, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever are dealt with in highest-containment BSL-4 labs.
Most research and development is still conducted at Fort Detrick, MD., Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore labs, Pine Bluff, AR. and Dugway Proving Ground, UT. The National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (BSL-4), which replaces Plum Island, is under construction in tornado-prone Manhattan, Kansas. (FOIA Feasibility Study here: http://www.thememoryhole.org/dhs/nbaf/dhs_nbaf-feasibility-study.pdf ) Hurricanes and earthquakes and electrical loss threaten many facilities.
Defensive “preparedness” has only led to spiraling cycles of mismanagement and abuse that perpetuate rather than eliminate the lethal threat. Contaminants in vaccines include animal diseases, microbes and heavy metals such as mercury. The scale of the killing or incapacitation can reach global proportions. Mass extermination might even be the endgame of some players if conspiracy researchers are correct.
The real issue is the fact that we have competing agendas and multiple players – bioweaponeers – and multiple agents in terms of bacteria, viruses, fungi; multiple targets within humans, plants, and animals; multiple environments in which that can occur. How do we mobilize against an unexpected threat, whether it is natural or engineered? Experts point out, we have no surge on demand manufacturing capability even once a pathogen is identified. Multiple scenarios demand a wide spectrum of defense postures.
Scenarios are endless: if you want to hire a group of biomercenaries to put on an island somewhere, you can write our own scenario. Do you want to disable or neutralize the enemy? Do you want to kill millions or do you actually just want to sustain a pattern of psychological operations against the adversary? Do you actually want to declare a priori that you will strike a city every third Friday, not to kill people, but merely show an ability to render society vulnerable and erode confidence in government?
Even without nefarious intent, epidemics on our overpopulated planet are inevitable, a matter of not if, but when. Scientists have just identified a genomic “signature” in circulating blood that reveals exposure to common upper respiratory viruses, like the cold or flu, even before symptoms appear. Genomic signature in blood identifies underlying viral infection Access to critical care and profiling of pathogens may determine who lives and who dies when vaccines pose their own dangers. Diagnostic biotech sensors – so-called zebra chips — are being developed to fill this gap.
Faster identification saves lives when pathogens first appear imbedded in the medical system. Similar symptomology compounds the diagnostic problem. Identifying those infected but presymptomatic is valuable. In terms of international public health surveillance, the ability of natural infectious disease to spread globally becomes a national security threat in its own right.
This “silent war” has raged on its own throughout human history, taking advantage of our vulnerability to drugs, toxins, chemicals and pathogens. Since ancient times, poisons, smallpox and plague were weaponized. Sewage and rotting bodies used as ammunition in medieval sieges were the ultimate biological weapons.
By WWII, Japan’s Unit 731 honed biological weapons (anthrax, cholera, plague and typhoid) to an art of war. As victors, the US eagerly grabbed their research. Nazi scientists brought BW research to the U.S. under Project Paperclip. The U.S. and Soviet Union investigated numerous pathogens and delivery systems, certainly spying and even stealing from each other. Poor control in deployment makes BW of little military use because pathogens can spread out of control. But when nations claim to abandon biowarfare or other strategies it usually means R&D has just gone “dark.”
Nearly everyone is vaccinated against polio and smallpox. The process of doing so in the last century, exposed many to carcinogenic monkey virus, whose legacy we see today.
. “A monkey virus linked to human cancers may have contaminated the oral polio vaccine for years after the U.S. government ordered manufacturers to remove it. The Chronicle reported in 2001 that the simian virus SV40 had contaminated early polio vaccine given to millions of Americans. When health officials discovered in 1961 that SV40 caused malignant tumors in lab animals, they ordered the virus eliminated from all future vaccine. But internal memos from Lederle Laboratories, the chief producer of polio vaccine in the United States, indicate SV40 may not have been completely removed. According to one memo, SV40 was found in three of 15 lots of the oral vaccine seven months after the federal directive was issued in March 1961. Lederle released the contaminated vaccine to the public anyway, the memo shows. Scientists discovered SV40 in the Salk polio vaccine in 1960. By then as many as 30 million Americans had been given injections of the SV40-tainted polio vaccine, which was first licensed in 1955. In recent years more than 60 scientific studies have found SV40 in rare human brain, bone and lung-related cancers, the same kinds of tumors the virus caused in laboratory animals. Some scientists believe SV40 may play a role in causing those cancers. The Lederle documents, which were obtained by Philadelphia attorney Stanley Kops in litigation not related to SV40, raise the possibility the virus might have been transmitted by contaminated oral vaccine, licensed for production in 1962.” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2001/07/22/MN173141.DTL
Y2K wan’t the realm Millennial Bug of the 21st century. History may show it comes from the singular act of digging and retrieving virus from Spanish Flu victims of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. There is ample evidence to suggest this virus was combined with others. It escaped the lab, either deliberately or accidentally and has created a situation that allegedly warrants global vaccination.
H digging up Spanish flu victims; engineering bird and swine flu.>
Though they can be contaminated with animal viruses or mercury used as a preservative, in 2009, government officials say vaccine makers and federal officials will be immune from lawsuits that result from any new swine flu vaccine, under a document signed by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.
Chemtrail protestors claim this ultimate poisonous aerosol is a deliberate blanket attack on the populace. Immunosuppresant barium salts, mycoplasma and pollutants are named culprits. It wouldn’t be the first time that mass distribution was inflicted on the unwitting public at large.
The BW problem is both domestic and transnational. Despite broad-sweeping 1972 treaties, we have found new means to deliberately weaponize natural and artificially engineered viruses and bacteria. Many claim AIDS and SARS were genetically-engineered [ ]. Other abuses range from mismanagement, to dirty vaccines, to secret use of uninformed civilians as guinea pigs, to genetic targeting and more. In most cases, government or military “spyentists” claim the public has no “need to know.” It is just ‘psiops,’ as usual, full-spectrum psychophysical control in action.
Even more horrifically, state-sponsored programs can escape or be hijacked as bioterrorism threats. Despite treaty bans, a relentless search for the “superbug” continues. In 1989, Vladimir Pasechnik defected to Britain with tales of a genetically-manipulated “superplague” and missile delivery systems. When the Soviet system broke down, scientists put their expertise for sale in the black market. Massive biodefense spending has not made us immune.
Weapons of Mass Infection
Classified secrets are tightly held until something escapes high-containment labs. In the mid-70s lyme disease apparently escaped from Plum Island, a Department of Agriculture facility near New York City that doubles as an Army BW research facility. It is a truism that “the poison is in the cure.” When the defense vaccines pose their own dangers, the system itself is sick, presenting a double bind.
Who knows what demons lurk in clandestine freezers and what might yet be created, despite the Biological Weapons Convention? Even cults have used poisonous salmonella, ricin, and lethal sarin gas in their deadly plots. [ ] There are accusations that emerging diseases, such as Swine and Bird flu are genetically-engineered and that West Nile Virus was weaponized.
The mind reels over potential technological revolutions in nano- and genetic agents for evil or good. In May 2009, a nanosuit infused with Reactive Surface Treatment (RST) that repels and kills anthrax spores was announced. Designed to protect troops from BW agents, other applications of self-cleaning fabric include antibacterial sportswear.
Military fabrics can also be oil-resistant, self-extinguishing, or chemical agent-reactive. http://www.federallabs.org/pdf/AprilMay2009-NewsLink.pdf Biotech meets nanotech in smart-systems biowarfare detection devices — photonic and nanotronic biosensor arrays that can immediately detect pathogens and insure public safety.
Leading biotech and biowarfare expert, George Poste is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. http://www.physorg.com/news6242.html In 2005, the CFR hosted a conference on the global threat of pandemic influenza, a Who’s Who of infectious diseases and global health, including a session on what the world would look like after a pandemic. http://docs.google.com/gview?a=v&q=cache:-0jchkGtcU0J:www.cfr.org/content/educators/Pandemic_Influenza_Agenda_and_Bios.pdf+microbiologist+council+on+foreign+relations&hl=en&gl=us
Hoyle and Wickramasinghe at the University of Wales at Cardiff suggest that flu epidemics and perhaps other illness can rain down on us from space. They present data correlating high sunspot activity with flu pandemics (large-scale epidemics), driven by a roughly 11-year cycle of solar activity. [ ] Who knows what else space might have in store for humanity but can it be any worse than the heinous measures we inflict on ourselves? Widescale experimentation with mycoplasmas and other agents may already have made us all ticking timebombs. [ ]
Furthermore, being a microbiologist can be hazardous to your health. Between Nov 12, 2001 and Mar 25, 2002, 13 renowned microbiologists mysteriously died in less than five months. The list of those who have died under mysterious circumstances keeps growing from LSD-patsy Frank Olson (d. 1953) to the “suicide” of accused anthrax murderer, the August 2008 “suicide” of Bruce E. Ivins, (Amerithrax pathogen) and the “suicide” of British whistleblower Dr. David Kelley in July 2003.
A transnational deadly pattern emerges. By 2005, 40 world-class micro-biologists expired in less than 4 years, all under suspicious circumstances. All worked for a government, or government contractors, on projects related to bio-terrorism, flu pandemics, or anthrax. Then it was discovered that our government was involved in strange experiments that involve exhuming bodies of people that were killed by the 1918 Spanish flu, and genetically engineered flu viruses.
Kelly was head of biological defense at the British secretive military research establishment of Porton Down, Wiltshire, and the brain behind much of the West’s germ warfare programs. According to Burghardt (2009), Kelly may have been a target of Dick Cheney’s “Executive Assassination Ring.” It’s hard to say what was more damning, his accusations that Saddam Hussein had no WMDs or his direct knowledge of genetically-targeted bioweapons and nefarious experiments.
Kelly was linked to the Britain’s intelligence services MI5 and MI6, GCHQ, the Ministry of Defense (MoD), the Foreign Office and foreign spy agencies – including Israel’s notorious Mossad (since 1995). A documentary, “Anthrax Wars,” is set for release in 2009. (Reid)
Kelly helped orchestrate the defection of Vladimir Pasechnik in 1989 so he had knowledge of horrifying Soviet research, as well. As chief director of the Institute for Ultra-Pure Biological preparations in St Petersburg, Pasechnik had developed killer germs. ‘I want the West to know of this. There must be a way to stop this madness,’ he told Dr Kelly in a safe house. (Reid)
Microbiologist Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik headed the Soviet bioweapons program at the Biopreparat facility. He was found dead in Wiltshire, England, near his home. In good health, he died suddenly in 2001 from a stroke some believe was induced by a nerve agent that mimics a stroke and leaves no traces. This began a string of mysterious deaths and obvious murders of world-class microbiologists, including Dr. Kelly. http://www.stevequayle.com/News.alert/03_Disease/031121.dead.scientists.html
On the Warpath
Biolgocial research conducted on Indian reservations is not subject to scrutiny by the federal government because they are sovereign nations. In the 70s, Wackenhut Corporation attempted to sell “biological warfare viruses” and vaccine kits to the U.S. government to be used against “small countries bordering Albania or large countries bordering the Soviet Union.” [ ]
William C. Patrick, III developed the process by which anthrax spores could be concentrated at the level of one trillion spores per gram. Patrick worked with Kanatjan Alibekov, known as “Ken Alibek” since he defected to the US in 1992. Remember, Alibek served as manager for a CIA biological warfare program in 1998. In Russia, Alibek was the No. 2 expert in the FSU’s biowarfare program, under Vladimir Pasechnik.
Ken Alibek became President of Hadron Advanced Biosystems, a subsidiary of Alexandria, Virginia-based Hadron, Inc., specializing in “the development of technical solutions for the intelligence community.” It received millions in funding for medical biodefense research in the field of non-specific immunity from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, and the NIH.
Whistleblower Dr. David Kelly’s highly-questionable ‘suicide’ happened while exposing WMD fraud as well as a potentially bigger scandal — his own secret dealings in germ warfare with the apartheid regime in South Africa. He claimed there is a covert anthrax war, a global black market in anthrax involved in mystery “suicides” of five government germ warfare scientists from around the world. Kelly described “many dark actors playing games” of bioterrorism.
This Germ’s for You
The trigger has already been pulled on the smoking gun of biowarfare and we were all in the crosshairs. In the 1950s-70s, pathogenic mycoplasma were covertly released in top-secret “mock” attacks in the US and Canada. Dr Maurice Hilleman, chief virologist for the pharmaceutical company Merck Sharp & Dohme, stated that this disease agent is now carried by everybody in North America and possibly most people throughout the world. (Scott, 2001) Is this what they mean by “better living through chemistry?”
Testing open air dispersal on the domestic front contaminated virtually everyone and set time bombs ticking in many. The neurodegenerative and systemic-degenerative diseases are contagious but only manifest as active diseases if the recipient is genetically pre-disposed, has a compromised immune system, or a triggering trauma.
A Washington DC Microbiologist links Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) to the anthrax story, which led to the suspicious death of “mad scientist,” hypno-patsy Dr. Bruce Ivins. Mycoplasma contaminated anthrax vaccines were used in the Gulf Wars, giving rise to GWS. Mycoplasmas are normally benign but have been bioengineered into “new” diseases that are reaching epidemic proportions.
Similar to bacteria, mycoplasma are a group of small microorganisms without cell walls, between cells and viruses. They can invade and burrow very deep into the cell causing chromic infections. Normal mycoplasma infections produce relatively benign diseases limited to particular tissue sites or organs, but GWS strains are very pathogenic, colonize a variety of organs and tissues, and are very difficult to treat.
According to Dr. Shyh-Ching Lo, senior researcher at The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and one of America’s top mycoplasma researchers, infectious mycoplasmas are implicated in AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, GWS, Crohn’s colitis, Type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Wegener’s disease and collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer’s. (Scott) Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus were also weaponized when the military explored mosquitoes as a delivery vector. Ironically, our biodefense program has created the very threat to US citizens it was meant to thwart.
Anthrax vaccine production continues. In February 1998, State Health Director James Haveman said the (Lansing-based) state- owned Michigan Biologic Products Institute would continue making the vaccine being given to U.S. active and reserve military personnel under a recent Pentagon directive. The mycoplasma story is associated with Michigan State in Lansing, Michigan. Tavistock is associated with Michigan University in Ann Arbor.
There are 400 bioweapon labs across the U.S. 113 of them refuse to publicly disclose their research. When it comes to Germ Warfare, we have met the enemy and unfortunately, it is us. Medical warfare also includes non-military methods exploiting existing civilian infrastructure to control and/or reduce target populations. As the adage goes, “It is never the same after a war.”
Bio-Terror has Already Affected Us All
“Scientists at The Institute for Molecular Medicine have found that slightly under one-half of the very sick Gulf War Illness patients in a pilot study with the signs and symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia have chronic invasive infections involving certain uncommon mycoplasmas, such as Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain).” –Dr. Garth Nicolson
A Washington-based microbiologist, who wishes to remain cautiously anonymous for obvious reasons, claims there are many unresolved issues surrounding anthrax and anthrax vaccines. He links covert military experiments to creation of toxic mycoplasmas and Gulf War Syndrome spread through contaminated anthrax vaccine. But who would knowingly do such a thing and why? They’ve done it before and they’ll do it again.
Could the same forces be behind the August 2008 “apparent suicide” of hypno-patsy, Army research scientist Dr. Bruce E. Ivins? The Fort Detrick microbiologist worked on a biodefense vaccine for anthrax but wound up accused as the “mad scientist” behind the Anthrax Mailings of 2001 that proved fatal for five victims. Now dead, his innocence until proven guilty is forever moot. Is he another “suicide solution”?
Social Power: Accelerated Social Change / Culled Population
We can follow the backtrail to governmentally sponsored anthrax to Gulf War Syndrome by following the “usual suspects.” When it comes to social or biological engineering, especially eugenics, the prime suspect is the perennial chimera of the globalist agenda, Tavistock Institute in Britain and one of its primary U.S. outposts, Michigan University, Ann Arbor.
Tavistock thinktank was created for healing shell shock but soon turned into the pioneering mass brainwashing institute with a globalist agenda. The precursor to the infamous CIA MK-ULTRA mind control program, Tavistock’s agenda is used to topple governments and engineer cultures. Tavistock’s spycologists are the founding fathers of mind control.
Tavistock’s goal is to control entire populations with the use of drugs, electronics and sophisticated mind control techniques, including group dynamics and lockdown propaganda. Research into the use of microwave weapons and their use for mind control began there in the 1950s. Tavistock was behind the creation and direction of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI).
The Cryptocracy, through economics and mass mind control is involved in the transformation or “alchemical processing” of mass consciousness by psychological mind manipulation. With the help of these foundations and secret societies, experiments in world shaping continue multimedia and military campaigns. The goal is to seed and control megatrends so the masses live as controlled puppets – wage slaves — of the ruling elite from cradle to grave.
Their “endgame” includes radical population reduction employing a variety of pathogens and other means. Thus, Tavistock wrote the blueprint for germ biowarfare (BW) as well as drug and chemical assaults (CBW). A thinktank for the global shadow government, Tavistock plays a pivotal role in shaping political, social, educational, and economic ‘opinions’, especially in the United States. It manufactures trends.
