The Next Generation Of Warfare: Genetically Engineered VIRUSES

Genetically engineered viruses could very well become the next generation of warfare. Deadly viruses modified in labs could be released eliminating entire communities of people as they infect making them a valuable asset to militaries worldwide.

As dystopian as that sounds, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is already working on a project called Insect Allies which will use insects to infect crops with genetically modified viruses that edit the crops’ genetic profile to make them more resilient against disease, as well as natural and manufactured threats to the food supply.

Joe Joseph of The Daily Sheeple said a quick Google search would give you enough information to let you know how horrific this kind of technology can be. “…and you’ll find it fascinating just at how unbelievable a weapon this could be, how unintentionally mistakes can be made that can cause irreversible damage…irreparable damage…to the human race. And I mean, FAST!” Joseph said. “A gene drive…if let’s just say there’s a mistake, you could feasibly wipe out the human race in a very very short period of time. It’s an unbelievable tool at the disposal of madmen.” –SHTFPlan

DARPA attempted to squash rising fears about their Insect Allies project and issue reassurances after German and French scientists voiced questions and concerns about the program’s efficacy earlier this month.  Those scientists also suggested that it could be “widely perceived as an effort to develop biological agents for hostile purposes and their means of delivery, which—if true—would constitute a breach of the Biological Weapons Convention.”

If the know-how and means exist to transmit genetic viruses that supposedly create beneficial crop mutations, the opposite will also be possible.  DARPA will be able to use insects to deliver gene editing viruses that destroy crops, ruin harvests and adversely affect the wider ecosystem, RT accurately pointed out. This means that those who fear this program are not far off at all for doing so.

Another project receiving DARPA funding involves releasing genetically modified mosquitoes in the Florida Keys area to transmit a sterilizing genetic virus to their malaria-carrying counterparts. Apart from the unknown effects upon the wider ecosystem, the knowledge gleaned from such research could one day make it possible for a state, a non-state actor, or a non-state actor working on behalf of a state to accidentally or deliberately use insect vectors to unleash a variety of biological agents and genetic viruses upon an unsuspecting population.

Russian president Vladimir Putin expressed his concerns over the potential for a human killing genetically engineered virus just last year. Whilst chairing a meeting of Russia’s Human Rights Council, Putin stated: “… do you know that biological material is being collected all over the country, from different ethnic groups and people living in different geographical regions of the Russian Federation? The question is – why is it being done? It’s being done purposefully and professionally. We are a kind of object of great interest.”

    In the movie Old Yeller, the lazy man with the little girl told of a story of a man bit ,who chained himself to a tree in case he had rabies, he did and after a while started snapping and snarling,biting, A weaponised rabies would bring on zombie like conditions?

  2. Barn Cat says:

    What if viruses could be programmed only to target people of certain races? Viruses could be released in China that only target people of Chinese ancestry for example.

  3. rellik says:

    I’ve commented about genetics as weapons before. I hadn’t thought about using insects as a vector. As they nail down the human genome even better, for example if they ever find the “Gay” gene we could eliminate Gays. (I don’t believe such a gene exists) If we ever find the sociopath gene we could get rid of most Democrat politicians and serial killers (I believe such a gene does exist).
    Genetics can be a very powerful weapon, but virtually impossible to control once you unleash it.
    Unless you are a Moslem you would never develop such a weapon.
    OOPs we have 1.6 billion Moslems on earth.

    • JustMe says:

      Insects were considered as potential vectors at least as far back as the 1960’s. We were warned of such in NBC/CBN training in the late 1970’s.

      During the 1980’s the idea of genetic-specific toxins was in vogue, and several countries began working on them. If they started working on such things in the 1980’s, they are already most likely weaponized…

    • Rellik:

      Serial killers have a higher likelyhood of a double Y chromosome. Too much testosterone is no joke.

      A gay gene? No. A damaged chromosome. Estrogens in plastics and certain drugs prevent the proper formation of the Y chromosome.

      Psychological and social factors affect the attitudes and behaviors of so-called gays. Up until a few years back, homosexual behavior was classified as aberrant perversion and a mental illness. There is less homosexuality in cultures which have strong bonding between mother and child with a strong and loving father who is present.

      Males, transvestism has been found to be a psychological illness brought about by a male child association of his mothers clothes as a comfort. This is similiar to a child’s obsession with his “blinky” (baby blanket) that some kids hang onto into childhood or adulthood. Transvestism usually contains some perception of abandonment by the mother.

      Anyway, Rellik, I doubt that a gay gene will be found. But who knows. Stranger things have happened.

      I read years ago that Israel developed weaponized viruses to attach to certain genes and target specific nationalities. Sickle Cell Anemia affects blacks for example. So a virus designed to infect the people with this gene would be toast. Inadvertently, this would only strengthen the black gene pool by eliminating the carriers of the problematic and hereditary condition.

      Maybe that’s why it isn’t used. More likely is that most people are not pure this or that, especially Israelis. The virus would boomerang killing any Israeli with a few drops of dna from the targeted ethnic group.

    • Yup, let’s eliminate all gays as soon as get rid of all those who like Rellik think like he does because such a thought is psychopathic: totally without remorse, empathy, conscience!

      My POINT is that “Thou Shalt Not Kill”!

      Once you permit the State to eliminate one category of people (the unborn) you open the floodgates to terminate the lives of EVERYONE ELSE!

    “Unless you are a Moslem you would never develop such a weapon”

    Do Europeans and Asians have a monopoly on morality? If such a virus can be created then its plausible that an immunization / vaccination can be created also. Now you have very select selectivity. Russians are killed off in Russia but not those in the US. Likewise Chinese. Mongrel Americans, because of genetic homogenization, make such a weapon highly difficult to use against. That tends to rule out “them” using it on “us” but far more likely for “us” to use on “them”.

    There isn’t a weapon that the US would not develop.

    Reason 43 why I don’t get FREE FLU SHOTS.

  5. Kevin2 says:

    Immorality not morality.

    These fear porn articles are fun and all that. What I can’t understand is the focus on stuff that might happen versus stuff that will happen. And will happen soon.

    Global water demand is going to exceed global water supply as early as 2030. That is in just 12-years.

    Running out of fresh drinkable water is something even the Progressive Socialist Democrats agree on (while still doing really suicidal stuff like “Open Borders.”

    Think it can’t happen in the United States? Just as you can’t have exponential growth on a finite planet, you cannot inflict infinite population growth on a finite country. But the Progressive Socialist Democrats are sure doing a good job of doing just that. It doesn’t seem to matter that human beings are using the resources of an Earth and a half. We’re in a recovery don’t ya know.

    Even CBS News, the mouth piece of the Progressive Socialist Democrats, admits to this.

    Meanwhile, China is trying to claim the fresh water in the US Great Lakes as payment for all the money the US government owes them because they are either running out of drinking water or have poisoned the rest of their water supply. A trillion dollars will buy a lot of water. Everybody has their straw. Think their won’t be blood?

    China already has laid claim to all the coal the US has left in lieu of payment for all the US Debt on their books. That is why all these coal mines have been closed down under Barack Obama’s reign of terror, and why all the others (like Powder River) are exporting it to China at a rate where Powder River will run out of coal in 20-years. A trillion dollars will buy a lot of coal.

    Nestle is moving in to use the water from the Great Lakes for their own personal purposes. They have one of those rape, plunder, and pillage purchase agreements with local governments. The governments pay Nestle to take “their” water.

    These are all natural resources that belong to the people; not countries (although the American people supposedly “of the people, by the people and for the people”); not corporations (even though corporations under Citizens United are now considered people).

    When your enemies talk about stuff that keeps them up late at night, and it’s the same stuff that’s keeping you up, isn’t their some common ground there to achieve something for the common good?

    • Menzoberranzan says:

      The water is my biggest stressor also.

    • Anonymous says:

      Get people to focus on what might happen instead of what is or will happen and you can defeat them more easily when the time comes since they won’t be ready for it, having concentrated their thinking on the improbable instead of the probable.

      Personally, I’m far more concerned with the real and observable spread of Central American gangs into the US -yes, even rural areas- than I am of the possibility of developing a virus to be used sometime in some yet to develop dystopian future.

      I’ll prepare to deal with that current development first.

    • reper sleepr says:

      Guess its called the Yellow River for a reason.

    • blame-e:

      The Great Lakes are being drained, in hughe bladders the pristine water is dragged by barge to China. At least that story with video of the action has circulated.

      Water is formed on a continuous basis within the earth when two hydrogen molecules come into contact with an oxygen molecule and form a bond. Then the water rises toward the surface. It recycles between the earth and clouds above when it rains, but it originates deep within earth itself. We, have more than enough fresh water for everyone right where they are. China needs to stop polluting. So do we. But China has a bigger pollution problem. How we got to be so weak that we can’t prevent our lakes from being drained is the real question. And, you are half right. It’s not even about what WILL happen. It’s about what is happening.

      Our natural resources leaving.
      Our manufacturing gone elsewhere.
      Our cities and towns invaded.
      Our politicians beholding to subversive billionaires.
      Our families separated.
      Our birth rate too low to not become “genocided”.

      The Western man is losing on all fronts.

      TPTB plan to make China the next superpower.

      The USA is being phased out bit by bit.

      November 6th is voting day, for what it’s worth, that’s day after tomorrow, Tuesday.

    The next war will be a silent one. No Nukes or shooting – Why destroy things when you want to only kill people you want dead.
    My fear has always been that terrorist or a nation state pollutes our water sources with deadly microbes. These microbes would have a designed shelf life.

    • Anonymous says:

      Most “terrorist” nations don’t have the technical know how or ability to do that.

      Terrorists attacking water supplies may work well in movie themes, but in the real world where water supplies are constantly monitored and treated it isn’t so easy. It would take something really special and exotic to pull it off, and it would require highly people to both make and do it.

      A chemical attack, OTOH, might be something that could be done if someone develops water borne nerve agents that can’t be easily detected and neutralized in treatment facilities till after they’ve taken effect.

    • Jak:

      Why poison the water when you can steal it, legally.

      Why break the law, when you can make the law.

    They never develop something they dont already intend to use. Treaties dont mean shit.

    We Will Never Be Safe Until Dr.Germ And Mrs.Anthrax Are 6 Feet Under!!! We Had The And Let Them Go Should Have Taken Them Out Back Of A Sand Dune And Killed Them!!

  11. bb in GA says:

    “These are all natural resources that belong to the people; not countries…”

    Dr Walter E. Williams, Economist, has commented on ideas like this one many times.

    He holds the position that this kind of statement on ownership is not very meaningful.

    He contends that you really don’t own something (in an economic sense) unless you can take possession of your share of it and dispose of it as you see fit (e.g. give to someone else, use it for your exclusive purposes, or sell it.)

    For instance, saying that we all ‘own’ the Grand Canyon (beyond going there and enjoying being there) is not a meaningful statement.

    Interesting read but it’s entirely copied and pasted from an article published earlier on RT. Not even a reference to the original source!

    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/442828-genetic-engineering-next-warfare/

    • We did link to RT, in this line: DARPA will be able to use insects to deliver gene editing viruses that destroy crops, ruin harvests and adversely affect the wider ecosystem, RT accurately pointed out. This means that those who fear this program are not far off at all for doing so.

  13. Maranatha says:

    There actually was a DARPA concept discussed in a lecture that is available onlinewhich discusses an enthic based engineered disease as a bioweapon. Various ethnicities have a preponderance to different disease states like sickle cell anemia or celiac disease for example.

    By genetic engineering, the natural immune response could be altered by proteins in which our white blood cells interact. Thus you could cause a great overreaction ie a cytokine storm so young health members who normally could resist a disease would instead die by their own immune reaction. Or you could make it so the disease is novel so there is a near impossibility of fighting the disease.

    The concern is every known disease escapes borders largely due to air travel. And they evolve. So such plans would backfire due to this, an impossibility of total blockade of escaping refugees, and contamination to later occupying soldiers.

    EMP is far safer by death by a variety of attrition.

  14. Blather says:

    Watch out. These things have a habit of backfiring, going viral and out of control and mutating.

    You are opening a Pandora’s box of trouble. The eating of the wrong tree in the Garden of Eden.

    But I know I’m only tempting you. You don’t see it as a warning.

  15. News Article “Scientists Describe How 1918 Influenza Virus Sample Was Exhumed In Alaska”
    Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
