Who’s behind COVID-19 pandemic: Are the chickens coming home to roost?


By Veterans Today Editor Kevin Barrett for Press TV

The question of whether the chickens are coming home to roost was famously posed by Malcolm X. And that was shortly after the JFK assassination. Malcolm X was suggesting that the same forces that the US had deployed to attempt to assassinate Fidel Castro, among others, may have bounced back in a case of blowback and killed President Kennedy.

And of course, we know that there’s a certain amount of truth to that. Today we know that the same CIA assassination squads that were unsuccessfully attempting to kill Castro were in fact involved in killing President Kennedy. So Malcolm X’s words were quite precient. Now does that apply to today’s coronavirus situation in which the United States is now about to become the global epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic according to the World Health Organization?

I think it does, because there is considerable circumstantial evidence that this COVID-19 pandemic was a biological weapon that was deployed against China and Iran and has bounced back against its creators. The experts in biological warfare all say that traditionally, strategists have been skeptical about biological warfare precisely because it has that tendency to bounce back and to create blowback.

Viruses mutate, even if you create an ethnic specific kind of virus, which may have been the case here. The United States has been caught red-handed nefariously collecting genetic material from the Chinese, from Russians and from Iranians. But the problem is that genetic specific weapons mutate. The virus is constantly seeking to find a better way to infect a broader group of people.

So it will typically go after people that may not have been the original targets, and that may be what happened here. The Chinese government is saying this. The Chinese government has all but officially accused the United States of deploying a biological weapon.

The Russian media accepts this as its standard mainstream narrative. This is what happened, according to Russian mainstream media. And in Iran, top leaders including the civil defense chief, and indeed the Supreme Leader himself, have broadly hinted at the same thing. We don’t know the details for sure, we’re not even sure that this hypothesis is correct, but we need to find out.

And at this point, we just don’t have enough information about the coronavirus and about the biological weapons programs. We know that the US has a terrible track record of using biological weapons against populations.

The US dropped more than 100,000 germ bombs on Pyongyang  in North Korea during the Korean War, as explained in Dave Chaddock’s book — This Must Be the Place[: How the U.S. Waged Germ Warfare in the Korean War and Denied It Ever Since].It used the Japanese germ warfare program that had done horrible things to China and Korea during World War Two, and it hired the very experts who had done that, and they became the basis for the US germ warfare program.

The US has also repeatedly attacked Cuba with biological weapons. It actually had a plan to incapacitate the entire Cuban population and kill at least 20% of the Cuban population as a prelude to a US invasion with the US soldiers, of course, protected by vaccines and masks as they went into Cuba. And that might very well have been actually approved; it would have been done if the President Kennedy hadn’t stopped it.

So we have bad historical precedents. We have all kinds of circumstantial evidence about the possibility of this being biological warfare, that blew back and got out of hand and is now affecting the very country that most likely was behind it. But we need to find out if that’s true.

We need a full scale international investigation. If we had had that kind of investigation after September 11, 2001 we would be living in a much better world today. Unfortunately, the same neoconservatives who were behind 9/11 very likely are also behind the coronavirus outbreak. It’s time to investigate, find out the truth, and prosecute the guilty.

  3. Has anyone else noticed how fast that CGI of the virus appeared on all our TV screens? This never happened for the HIV, H1N1, SARS, etc., but this one WHAM that was fast! Almost like they already had it standing by ready for release to all networks at the same time.

  4. That’s exactly what happened Kevin. No if, and ,or ,buts. Like 9/11 the most likely suspects are “our” own Government and the Israelis who are experiencing blow back of varying degrees. I mean who’d be stupid, evil and hubristic enough to pull off such an operation not anticipating what thee and me know as a fact and that viruses even when developed as genetic specific would have a tendency to mutate. Even someone with a minor knowledge of microbiology would know this just as anyone who has taken grade school physics knows that steel edifices like the WTC can not be destroyed by light aluminum aircraft striking them and burning jet fuel.

    Not only are these cretins morons but they are evil morons.

  5. No one, no agency, no government, and no doctor or scientist has ever isolated a virus from a human, animal or plant. The virus photos above are CGI, the imagination of an artist. You ask who’s behind this, well, just ask who came up with the computer generated scenario and the government response to the predicted pandemic. It was in 2010 that the Rockefeller Foundation dreamed up what we are witnessing today. It’s called LOCKSTEP, and here’s the link:
    Instead of depending on the government’s CGI images of NCOV19, we should be asking for an electronic microscope photo of said virus. We should be asking for peer reviewed tests that have actually isolated said virus from a human or even an animal. Guess what? They don’t exist. They lied about 911, the Gulf of Tonkin, the USS Liberty and everything else, and now we’re supposed to believe there’s a pandemic. Call me crazy, but, Please ask for proof. They don’t have it.

  6. Brought to you by the descendents of those infamous bastards who gave the Native Americans smallpox infected blankets! Karma, anyhow, has a way of coming back and kicking you in the ass 10X harder.

  7. Several months ago Putin announced this warning about collecting Russian gen samples. The problem is that we have in Russia about 140 or smth nations. Like in the USA. We are not a mono-nation. But the true meaning was that such things happen. Dangerous bio-games…

  8. I still think there’s an antidote(vaccine) already in existence, which would mean the perpetrators and their backers are already immune, and that they weren’t concerned about blowback. Just like the virus, the perps have no respect for nation-states or boundaries on a map. If anything, they view it as acceptable collateral damage. Trump, and the other quislings in congress are playing their parts perfectly as useful idiots.
    Absolutely agree though, if we survive, there needs to be hands-off transparent, international investigation including China, Russia, and Iran, and if parties responsible found out, pursued, tried, and publicly executed.

  9. Instead of ‘The chickens have come home to roost’ how about ‘The bats are back in the belfry’.
