(NaturalNews) The deliberate manufacture by governments of deadly biological weapons containing diseases like smallpox and plague is nothing new. But the threat of these agents being used as weapons of war in today’s world is escalating, says a former Soviet scientist, who told PBS’s Frontline that vaccines are no match for the advanced, genetically modified (GM) “bioweapons” that will most likely be used against civilian populations in the near future.
During an interview, Dr. Kanatjan Alibekov explained the history of biological weapons procurement in Soviet Russia, of which he was a part from 1988 to 1992. Having since committed himself to furthering American interests, Dr. Alibekov has apparently renounced his former Soviet ties and spilled the beans about what the Russian government, and presumably also the American government, has been up to on the biological weapons front.
Though he claims that Russia’s biological weapons programs were shuttered back in the 1980s, Dr. Alibekov maintains that such programs could be up and running again in a matter of months. And with the advanced technologies that now exist, drugs and vaccines, he says, simply aren’t enough to provide adequate protection.
“Until recently, we hadn’t seen anything with applying chemical weapons, but we’ve seen it recently,” stated Dr. Alibekov. “Now we can say, if we follow this logic, biological agents, biological weapons could be used in the future. In my opinion, that’s not a matter of if; that’s a matter of when.” (Click to Article)
