I'm a Ph.d in virology & microbiology and have had my degree's in hand for 15 years now, and "NO" there wouldn't even be a reason to try and
create something like that, even if it were possible, which it isn't.
I find it funny how some people with degree's think that virus manipulation (LET ALONE CREATION) is impossible or something.
> BECAUSE >IT'S MORE THAN POSSIBLE ON MANY LEVELS.<
I've said this before...not even Harvard offers courses on how to create VIROLOGICAL weapons.
Some people think that just because they can't do it, that must mean that nobody else can either.
Then there are those who think that goverment scientist's are no better or smarter than anyone else, hence, nobody would have been able to create the
H.I.V. virus, for example.
"THE TECHNOLOGY SIMPLY DIDN'T EXIST BACK THEN !"
That line is my personal favorite. lol
There are over 35 levels of "TOP SECRET & ABOVE" within the United States goverment. If anyone thinks that the U.S. is not in the buisness of
"BIO-WEAPONS," I suggest that they think again.
Like the United States goverment is simply just going to come right out and admit that they are capable of creating the freak'in "ANDROMEDA STRAIN"
or something. "HONESTLY"
The innocent U.S. goverment equivalent to Russia's "BIOPREPARAT" which is also known as "VECTOR" are called "POINT LABS," and you are not EVER
going find it anywhere on the internet.
These labs are not located in Maryland at Fort Detrick anymore like many people may guess, they are quite abit further west.
H1N1 was created at a lab in Austria.
The chances of that influena strain coming together as it did is about 100 million to 1, the all clear on the H1N1 pandemic was just given recently,
which is good, because there never really was one in the first place.
