virus - an infective agent that typically consists of a nucleic acid molecule in a protein coat, is too small to be seen by light microscopy, and is able to multiply only within the living cells of a host:
Many viruses exist on Planet Earth, some benign, but some are malignant and deadly viruses. They have always been with us. The issue, however, is when man starts altering and enhancing the organisms, especially during weaponization in bioweapons programs, they make something new and much more deadly, infectious, and stable to survive stress they normally wouldn't otherwise. What happens when they get out into the natural world and they become rampant problems that affect the natural environment negatively?
Well for one, they create a large amount of illness. And unfortunately, it creates a booming economy for the medical monopolies and big-pharma. There is nothing they want more than to have illness exploding because it means large profit. its a sad reality, but it is not an exaggeration. People try to downplay this and say that it isn't true. Well then they really don't know much about the nature of power, profit, greed, and monopoly. It is an unfortunate reality, and I wish it wasn't true, but to a large extent- it is.
Secondly, many defense contractors, military, and intelligence agencies, like to allow diseases to spread and infect large numbers of people because they can then study its effects and have knowledge of what it can do as a weapon. But as I said in the preliminary purpose of this website, we have lost the idea of nation and moral ground, when we decide it is o.k. to test diseases on innocent people, without their consent, while destroying lives and causing death and debilitation.
Many viruses have been weaponized in secret military programs for the last hundred or so years, gaining ground in the second half of the 20th century (1950's onward). There are numerous viral organisms that have been stockpiled as weapons. But mostly all have been studied in the program for weaponization. This includes a wide range of viruses and some vector-borne disease that travel on birds, mosquitos, and ticks. Some of them include: HIV/AIDS (Simian Virus/Mycoplasma), Hepatitis (Hepatitis A, B, C, D & E), Smallpox, Measles, Ebola, Marburg, Polio, Flu, Swine-Flu, Plague, Dengue Fever, Rift-Valley Fever, Foot-and-Mouth Disease, Lassa virus, West Nile Virus, Powassan Virus, Hantavirus, Rinderpest, Viral meningitis, among hundreds of others.
Some of the military bioweapons development programs are PROJECT WHITECOAT, PROJECT SHAD, OPERATION BIG ITCH, OPERATION BIG BUZZ, OPERATION DROP KICK, OPERATION MAY DAY, PROJECT BACCHUS, PROJECT CLEAR VISION, and PROJECT 112, but you can be sure that there are more and that they are ongoing right through to the present day.
