UN WMD Inspectors Need to Extend Their Reach to Take in the International Space Station
Link for those who read conspiracy thrillerSUN inspection team should check
on the International Space Station's biological research program, because in
the past many of the partners have operated covert BW facilities.
provides opportunities for experimentation notpossible in earth-based laboratories.
Ostensibly research conducted into medicine on
board the International Space Station could benefit people all over the
world. For instance, living cells can be grown in an environment
where they are not distorted by gravity perhaps leading to the development of
treatments for cancer and other fatal diseases.
provides opportunities for experimentation that would be easier to uncover in
The inaccessibility of the
station gives scientists an unprecedented opportunity to carry out experiments
into bio-warfare that are banned under the terms of the 1972 convention. And it's easy to understand why the participating nations would jump at the opportunity to develop WMD in an an area beyond the reach of whistleblowers when you remember that during the Gulf War, Iraq
admitted to having stockpiled 19,000 litres of concentrated Botulinum
toxin— enough to wipe out the entire population of the world, three times over--and currently Syria
is in the throes of dismantling its chemical weapon program. It doesn’t take
much imagination to see why the opportunity to develop a similar capability
must be compelling—particularly when several of the participating partners in the
ISS do not have an ethical aversion to the use of BW, as is evidenced by their
I still recall
watching a television news program that showed footage of bulldozers digging
for the bones of victims murdered at Unit 731. This was Japan's
infamous biological warfare unit where Chinese civilians and POW's were
used to test the effectiveness of biological weapons, specifically experiments
with bubonic plague, typhoid, anthrax and chorea to track pathological changes
for the purpose of advancing the use of disease as a weapon. The reporter
commented that the excavators would need to dig deep because when the Japanese research team learnt the Americans were
coming, they dug a hole three storeys deep to bury their victims.
The US conducted a covert BW
program in Maryland.
The U.S. Army's Special Operations Division at FortDerrick
operated from 1949 to 1969. Ex- servicemen alleged that from 1954 to 1965, army
scientists produced over 3 tons of microbes that cause deadly diseases
including anthrax, tularemia and brucellosis. Ironically, many of the US research
team came from Unit 731. They weren't prosecuted for war crimes in exchange for
turning over the results of their research to the United States.
Union's massive biological program, (Biopreparat),
comprised 52 sites and employed 50,000 people. Ostensibly, they were
engaged in bio-technological research for medical purposes. But according to Soviet
defectors, most prominent among them, the deputy chief of Biopreparat from 1988
to 1992, this was a smoke screen. He claimed the Biopreparat's
production capacity for weaponized smallpox was 90 to 100 tons per year.
and Russia, the former Soviet Union, are just three of the ISS partners that in
the past have kept their BW research secret. But they are just three among the
many. A comprehensive list of nations that have admitted operating BW
facilities and stockpiling chemical weapons can be found on the site below:
of the declared facilities and stock-piles have since been destroyed. However
in the words of Benjamin Franklin: Distrust and caution are the parents of
security. To put minds at rest maybe UN
Weapon Inspectors should check the off-earth facility.
