So the Taliban are using biological warfare, well they aren't the first, and it doesn't have to be the military.

Case in point - I once had a rental car stolen while working in the UK, and was present when it was recovered. The tow truck driver placed a plywood sheet on the driver's seat before attempting to move the vehicle. When I asked him why he was going that, he explained that the thieves stick used hypodermics in the seat squab and snap them off so they would stick in the legs of the police/recovery specialists when they found the vehicle, hopefully infecting them with HIV or similar.

Face it, people are sick the world over.

And that is the one million dollar question, I wonder why if the taliban really wanted to cause damage they will not used other type of biological weapons available to them.

I guess because if they do, then the countries involved will actually literally be wiped out of the face of the earth.

This is laughable at best.

hardy har har har? seriously, USE YOUR FREAKIN MINDS! HIV infected needles? In a bomb? If the virus didn't die before it was detonated, the heat would kill it with 110% positivity. COME ON!! It's the SUN.CO.UK

my faith in humanity doth dwell near the edge.

IT can only be psychological warfare if it's true, because AID takes decades to manifest. So it's useless in a war.

just like i pointed out.

its either physiological warfare on the troops.

or more likely published in the sun to rile up the sheeple. so they still agree with the war

This was just posted on Fox News saying the same thing. That they are doing it....
and then links to THE SUN.....

Fox has lost whatever credibility they still had in my opinion after that....
It does say they are also using hepatitis and razor blades too. Parts of that might be true...that they are uning needles and razor blades to cut and prick people trying to diffuse mines and IED's, but it is ludicrous to think that HIV will infect anyone like this.

It also says that British troops have been issued Kevlar gloves. In case they didn't know, Kevlar will not stop a needle from piercing.

I have heard of needles being present in bombs for aghes, long before Afghanistan. It is psychologicaly threatening as much as it is anythingg else. Viruses that can last a long time outside of the body usaully arent as disastarous to health. What I have heard of, and I beleive to be true is the use of fecal matter in bombs, both human and animal smeared on sharp objects and the bomb itself in an attempt to infect those who are caught in the explosions. This strikes me as somewhat weird however, as most casaulties are killed whilst travelling in vehicles, and so blood infections are almost never the cause of death... but oh well, im sure there will be something else similar soon to spark the debate.

I call shenanigans.

Studies have proven time and time again that HIV does not survive well outside the human body. In artificially high concentrations produced in the lab, HIV drying that occurs outside of the body reduces the number of infectious viral particles by 99 percent in just a few hours. Since the concentration of HIV in blood or other bodily fluids is much lower, HIV drying outside the human body virtually eliminates all infectious HIV particles therefore making the risk of HIV infection from blood or bodily fluids outside the body essentially zero.

Ok this was wrote in the sun so should be looked at with a pinch of salt but i would believe it. I know form reading reports on the IED threat in Afghanistan that they have done things like mix dog facieses in their bombs in attempt to infect their victims so it would not surprise me if they done the same with dirty needles. However i do not think this would work for a few reasons firstly the odds of contracting HIV through a dirty needle are not as high as other means of transmission. Then it is unlikely that the needles would penetrate body armour and it might even be that the heat of the blast kills the virus. So yes i believe this, but i don’t think it would work.

Nothing new here really.

Just one example a little ways back.

Chemical and biological bombs/warfare with a bit of a twist.

Modified to add that I meant to say fear-mongering propaganda. Sometimes I forget that not everyone realizes I'm discussing propaganda in another topic and forgot to elaborate here.

So did the taliban get the idea from South Park?

While I'm certain that some ignorant or desperate zealots may try anything to increase the terror they inflict; I'm not prepared to take Rumsfeld/Bush propaganda too seriously.

In planting IEDs I suspect you would want to get in and out as quickly as possible. Somehow, spending an extra half hour carefully positioning these alleged needles, just in case someone survives the blast, seems counterproductive at best.

But then, anything can be claimed, and it creates emotional hostility at home, from whence the support comes.

Possibly a story fabricated for the purpose of diverting the real origin of tainted military vaccinations? Tainted either intentionally or accidentally? Otherwise, who would honestly waste time creating such a device? Sounds silly.

Makes more sense that it is a cover for something else.

Maybe, maybe not.

Scare mongering pure and simple, but the Afghans. And look at us, we are acheiving their aims are we not, mearly by talking about it, argueing and debating we are proving them right. I don't think this is a conspiricay or cover up, I think it is genuine, no matter how futile or ambiguous.

Wouldnt the HEAT from the blast NULLIFY (Sterile) the syringes if one would explode?

im no doctor, but that idea just seems silly.

AIDS dies in seconds out of the human body.

Just a simple ask. Could everyone stop repeating what has already been said, although over looking what people say is easy enough is does start to get tedious when you beleive a valid arguement or view to be just round the metaphorical corner.

I think so.

It just seems like a scare tactic if anything.

but if a bomb explodes in your face, your going to die before the bug kills you anyway.

Oh, I certainly don't disagree.

In fact, that was exactly the point I was attempting to make...that it is most likely propaganda...recycled at that.

I wouldn't assign or distinguish between or among the administrations. Same playbook.
