U.S. Military Developing Devastating New Bio-weapon
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.
