I like your scenario...once we repopulate the world back into the billions the SECOND time, we'll all be stronger, faster, smarter, more ambitious...and THEN we can go sweeping out into the cosmos conquering everything we see. Just like Khaaaaaaaaan!
God I love the sound of a genetically superior Terran Empire...

There is no disease they have that can do a depopulation thing. Controlling births is there only option, though i doubt thats what swine flu vaccine is about either.
Its probably to do with tracking people, and who knows whats inside it.

America saw its agricultural system intentionally subjected to political policies that radically transformed it. What was once a decentralized system that provided a means to self sufficiency and independence for tens of millions of farmers was purposefully centralized into a capital-intensive fossil-fuel dependent system that restructured local economies, permitting their wealth to be extracted by what are now transnational cartels dedicated to the so-called free market and globalized trade at all costs.
This transformation was the result of organized plans developed by a group of highly powerful – though unelected – financial and industrial executives who wanted to drastically change agricultural practices in the US to better serve their collective corporate financial agenda. This group, called the Committee for Economic Development, was officially established in 1942 as a sister organization to the Council on Foreign Relations. CED has influenced US domestic policies in much the same way that the CFR has influenced the nation's foreign policies.
Composed of chief executive officers and chairmen from the federal reserve, the banking industry, private equity firms, insurance companies, railroads, information technology firms, publishing companies, pharmaceutical companies, the oil and automotive industries, meat packing companies, retailers and assisted by university economists...
[A covert-sterilisation programme using vaccines such as tetanus, rubella and what looks to be Gardasil (1), also the use of mercury in third world country vaccines (even after they have removed most of it it from Western countries) is suspected of being a birth control ploy (1). They have form with 60,000 Americans coercively sterilized , and between 1963 and 1965 more than 400,000 Colombian women were sterilized in a program funded by the Rockefeller Foundation which also helped found and fund the German eugenics program; and even funded the program that ultimately sent Josef Mengele into Auschwitz (1, 2, 3).]
But, knowing what we do about the agenda and connectedness of the military-industrial-scientific-agricultural-pharmaceutical complex, what other nefarious goals might be on their minds? While I was digging around the web looking for more information on Monsanto, I stumbled across this page about spermicidal corn and population control. linkShe cites the following two chilling articles -

Thank you CASFS Blog: link
A small California biotech company, Epicyte, in 2001 announced the development of genetically engineered corn which contained a spermicide which made the semen of men who ate it sterile. At the time Epicyte had a joint venture agreement to spread its technology with DuPont and Syngenta, two of the sponsors of the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault. Epicyte was since acquired by a North Carolina biotech company. Astonishing to learn was that Epicyte had developed its spermicidal GMO corn with research funds from the US Department of Agriculture, the same USDA which, despite worldwide opposition, continued to finance the development of Terminator technology, now held by Monsanto.

A more severe case of genetic contamination is taking place in Mexico, where the presence of GM corn has been documented since 2001. It continues to show up in rural farming communities, both peasant and indigenous, sown by small farmers who are not aware of the transgenic threat; and it is proliferating rapidly, across wild and mixed varieties, in spite of the Mexican government’s ban on transgenic crops, in effect since 1998. This contamination deeply concerns environmentalists, scientists and farmers, since Mexico is the cradle of corn and axis of its diversity, rendering the long term consequences on the environment and human health uncertain.
In Mexico, people are distressed by the possibility that biopharmaceutical corn could be introduced in the country. Silvia Ribeiro, of the ETC organization, expresses great annoyance about the California-based company Epicyte, which ostentatiously declared having developed a spermicidal corn to be used as a contraceptive.
Ribeiro stated in La Jornada: “The potential of spermicidal corn as a biological weapon is outrageous, since it easily interbreeds with other varieties, is capable of going undetected and could lodge itself at the very core of indigenous and farming cultures. We have witnessed the execution of repeated sterilization campaigns performed against indigenous communities. This method is certainly much more difficult to trace.”
HAZARDOUS EFFECT OF TERMINATOR TECHNOLOGY
Some of hazards are as follows :
Misfortune of farmers : The 12,000 years old practice in which farm families save their best seed from one year’s harvest for the next season’s planting, may be coming to an end if terminator technology will be approved all over the world. Critics say that it could spell disaster for world’s food supply, since more than one billion farmers, primarily small farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America depend on saved farmed seeds.
Threat to food security : The second reason for criticizing the terminator technology is the absence of adequate biosafety legislation. Countries might be induced to accept the terminator on the assumption that the technology is safe and the transgenic traits can not survive to a second generation, even by cross pollination. This assumption is ill founded. As with all genetic engineering, its direct effect and its side effects are unpredicatable and carry all the risks inherent in this technology. The gene cocktail of the terminator increases the risks that new toxins and allergens will show up in out food and animal fodder. So it should be banned unless “it is too late to lock the stable door when the steed is stolen”
Destruction of agricultural biodiversity : The terminator genes themselves could infect the agricultural gene pool of the neighbouring crops and of wild and weedy relatives, placing a time bomb. Temporary gene silencing of the poison gene or failed activation of this countdown enable such infection. Molecular biologists have mixed
views on the potential ecological hazards of the sterility trait. From first generation seed might spread via pollen to neighbouring crops or wild relatives growing nearby. The danger is that neighbouring crops could be rendered sterile due to cross pollination wreaking havoc on the surrounding ecosystem. So biosafety issues remain an important concern
