MurderCityDevil is correct. It's the complications. No immune system means every germ and virus has free reign on the body.
Just for the hell of it is pretty much out as a reason, since they didn't have the technology. Population control is most often cited as why, but it
doesn't make much sense. A few questions I would have are:
1) Why would the WHO (World Health Organization) which is the the United Nations public health arm, be involved in a plot formed by the US
2) Why would the government make this decision to commit population control using an untested and very new virus?
3) Why would they use a retrovirus, which by definition is SLOW. Not even slow in months, but in years. They certainly knew then of the possiblity of
world wide spread.
4) Why not use something else that might cause victims to simply be sterile?
5) Why would they target minorities or homesexuals specifically with that retrovirus, knowing it could never be limited to just those groups?
6) Why target homosexuals for population control (since that's how it started spreading initially) when, as far as I'm aware, male-to-male
intercouse can't cause pregnancy?
Most research views are that HIV doesn't have a sufficient sector of homology with the proposed parent viruses used to supposedly engineer it in the
If you study the actual timeline rather then just hear "virus" and think it was created, then you'll realize there were many factors that also come
into play. Why would the government look for a weapon of mass genocide or control early in the 70's and use a completely unknown area of human
retroviruses as the source? There were plenty of known and available alternatives. Military science had no reason to look at that group of viruses
that HIV belongs to.
Look at the world social conditions of the time. International travel was on the rise, the sexual revolution was happening, injection drug use was
building, and blood donations with multiple re-use of syringes in many Third World countries was happening. All of those provide an Occam's Razor
type of explanation.
There are many such factors involved.
