U.S. Mil­i­tary De­vel­op­ing Dev­as­tat­ing New Bio-weapon

Trillions - - In This Issue -

It isn't enough that hu­mans are in­ad­ver­tently caus­ing the most rapid mass ex­tinc­tion of life our planet has ever ex­pe­ri­enced. Now the U.S. mil­i­tary is de­vel­op­ing pro­grams to de­lib­er­ately ex­tin­guish se­lect species.

Ac­cord­ing to U.S. Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act (FOIA) dis­clo­sures, the U.S. mil­i­tary is spend­ing over $100 mil­lion to use ge­net­ics to wipe out en­tire species. The real bud­get may be much higher.

The tech­nolo­gies in ques­tion are be­ing de­vel­oped with what might seem like laud­able goals. Spe­cific mos­quito va­ri­eties that are pri­mary car­ri­ers of malaria, along with in­va­sive ro­dents and other species, are said to be the des­ig­nated tar­gets. If suc­cess­ful, the pro­grams could wipe out these species and ev­ery­thing bad they carry with them, but it could also wipe out other species that de­pend upon them as a food source and dis­rupt en­tire eco-sys­tems.

The sci­ence works in many cases by cre­at­ing ge­net­i­cally en­gi­neered “mates” for those species. The ge­netic en­gi­neer­ing can force the off­spring from mat­ings of the ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied (GM) ver­sions of the species with nor­mal ones to be un­able to re­pro­duce. Other ge­netic vari­a­tions could cre­ate dis­torted ra­tios of males to fe­males in the next gen­er­a­tion, which would also tend to wipe out a species quickly over time.

En­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment has never been the role of the U.S. mil­i­tary. The U.S. Dept. of De­fense ex­ists to kill peo­ple and en­rich the war in­dus­try. So, it is in­cred­i­bly stupid to think that such an or­ga­ni­za­tion should have the abil­ity to cause the ex­tinc­tion of an en­tire species. It is a cer­tainty that such tech­nol­ogy will be weaponized for use against hu­mans.

It is es­pe­cially dan­ger­ous for such an or­ga­ni­za­tion to have such power when its ac­tions are con­trolled by one man. At present, that one com­man­der and chief is a so­ciopath who is anti-sci­ence, anti-life, anti-en­vi­ron­ment and has al­ready threat­ened to wipe out an en­tire na­tion.

Other na­tions ur­gently need to ban such ge­netic bio-weapons and en­force the ban against all coun­tries, in­clud­ing the United States.
