OK...Explain to me...why a crap load of researchers were taken off the Antartican bases in one feld swoop?
Then 'replaced with others'. Just like that.
Knowing 'full well', that the researchers were sicker than dogs

OK I admit I have not yet had a chance to read through/watch all the links but I would just like to say as someone who has actually been to Antarctica on one of the Oz research expeditions back in '91. The so called Rigorous Quarantine procedures really aren't that rigorous.
I recall some of the Glacial scientists with us were going out to do some research on the "Dome" but I had my own work to do and didn't really pay any attention to this.
Research has determined that it takes Antarctic expeditioners just a few months to become vitamin D deficient unless they have normal to high levels of the vitamin to begin with.

But you asked why they pulled out so many people at once, and I gave you the answer to your question.

There is a theory that black ops were trying to move the magnetic poles by nuclear means, deep underground in Antartica.
In other words creating a man made pole shift. Playing God.
I believe they will not be successful at this but probably will still try to destroy the pristine environment. When firms quote things like "We stopped drilling as it was environmentally unsound", I tend to sit up and take notice. At no time in the hostory of mankind have any big businesses been thwarted by any altruistic agenda. Neither theirs or anyone elses.
The drilling at Vostok sounds suspicious.
Last year, after an eight-year hiatus, a joint team from Russia and France began drilling once more with a different system that uses a sterile "buffer fluid". This fluid is heavier than kerosene and was designed to sink to the bottom of the drill hole to guard against contamination of the lake. Next year, the scientists hope to break through the last few feet of ice and bring frozen samples to the surface to test for microbial life.

The evacuation from Scott Amundsen was due to a gall bladder problem. That from McMurdo was because of a member of the maintenance crew having a 'serious heart problem' with a number of others taking the opportunity to leave the base at the same time for various reasons.
