Bio-Weapons. Truth or Fiction?
RT.com – Biological weapons are weapons of mass destruction involving biological agents — pathogens, dangerous viral infections — and the means of their delivery. For example, aerosols, sprays, rodents, or insects can be used to spread pathogens.
These weapons of mass destruction are indiscriminate. If they are used, they’ll harm anyone in a given area. This makes them particularly dangerous.
Most people envision biological weapon attacks as a massive plague or smallpox epidemic or Ebola virus outbreak. For centuries these diseases had tremendous destructive power. However, today biological weapons can be used surreptitiously without causing severe effects.
Sometimes their deadly effect can be stretched over a period, making it very difficult to define whether it is a natural phenomenon or a directed attack.
Though these weapons were banned in 1925, their development is still very active, as dozens of secret labs are opening and people’s biological material is collected and stored.
So how real is biological warfare?
U.S GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON “BIOWEAPONS”
STATE.GOV – On March 9, 2022, the U.S. State Department issued an Official Press Statement refuting all Bio and Chemical Weapons claims made by Russia.
“The Kremlin is intentionally spreading outright lies that the United States and Ukraine are conducting chemical and biological weapons activities in Ukraine. We have also seen PRC officials echo these conspiracy theories. This Russian disinformation is total nonsense and not the first time Russia has invented such false claims against another country. Also, these claims have been debunked conclusively and repeatedly over many years.
As we have said all along, Russia is inventing false pretexts in an attempt to justify its own horrific actions in Ukraine. The United States does not own or operate any chemical or biological laboratories in Ukraine, it is in full compliance with its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and Biological Weapons Convention, and it does not develop or possess such weapons anywhere. It is Russia that has active chemical and biological weapons programs and is in violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention and Biological Weapons Convention.
Finally, Russia has a track record of accusing the West of the very crimes that Russia itself is perpetrating. These tactics are an obvious ploy by Russia to try to justify further premeditated, unprovoked, and unjustified attacks on Ukraine. We fully expect Russia to continue to double down on these sorts of claims with further unfounded allegations.”
