I have just finished reading a book by a man named Ken Alibek reguarding the Soviet Unions germ warfare research and development.
Ken Alibek rose to become the 2nd highest member of an orginastion called Biopreperat ( an alias for the Soviet bio weapons program; which took up a
sizale amount of the military budget ). He is also credited with developing the most powerful strain of anthrax ( using an Indian strain ) ever
produced and developing a powdered form of Anthrax which could be packed into SS-18 strategic rocket warheads for direct attack on the US.
Anyway the most desturbing revelations were the hybrid germs the soviets had come up with they include :
1.bubonic plague crossed with ebola
2.smallpox crossed with encephilitis
A lot of other deseases had their virilence increased and also made almost immune from antibiotics.
Their annual production of smallpox and anthrax was 20 tonnes a year !!!!
This is scary # if any of the deadlier strains ever made it to the general population !!!
