Disease manufactured by germ warefare cannot be distinguished from naturally occuring viruses
Salmonella Bird Flu, HIV/Aids, Mexican Flu, Swine Flu E-coli are some of the medical emergencies to emerge since Spanish Flu killed fifty million people shortly after WW1. An alarming fact, (seldom mentioned), is that we cannot as yet distinguish between a manufactured microbe and a naturally occuring one.
Protecting oneself from germ warfare is not as simple as wearing a mask or regular handwashing
A kilogram of aerosolized anthrax, depending on meterological conditions, has the potential to kill hundred of thousands of people in the target area and the technology already exists.
Chemical and Biological weapons are no longer the sole province of rogue states
Much of the research into germ warfare is funded by extremist groups. Chemical and biological weapons are no longer the sole province of rogue states,with extremist groups exploring the use of WMD to achieve their ends.
Should the world panic?
The trend to think defence against germ warfare is not necessary, too complicated or will never happen is widespread and yet as I'm writing, in secret laboratories around the world, scientists are developing anthrax, ricin and botulism as weapons, testing their biological capability and experimenting with delivery systems.
I wrote about one such laboratory in The Biocide Conspiracy, its location so renown that no one had an inkling. Click here to buy or sample.
