Great thread. As usual, exploring the past is always interesting, but it's most interesting when it informs our present.
The US military leadership in that era seems to have harbored elements that "admired" both Japanese and Nazi propensities to push the envelope.
Well, that was then, maybe understandable.
How about in 1956, over a decade after the war, the US thinks it's a good idea to repeat one of the most famous Unit 731 "success" stories, that
is, using mosquitos against civilians.
Two locations were chosen, Savannah, Georgia, and Avon Park, Florida. In this case, the mosquitos were infected with Yellow Fever. After deployment,
and suitable incubation, Army agents pretended to be public health officials, and went through the target populations testing their victims for
And why should that be a surprise? The US biological weapons program at Fort Detrick in Maryland started in 1943 primarily in response to assumed
Japanese advancements that were leaving the US behind.
By 1966, the US Army had decided that not only the South, and other lower pop areas were good candidates, even big cities were fair game. They
attacked the New York City subway system, exposing over a MILLION civilians, when they dropped light bulbs filled with Bacillus subtilus, variant
niger, onto ventilation grates. (Wow, auto censor turns the single "g" official word referring to the African nation, into "n-word". Ignorant.
Mods, try not to fine me for using correct scientific terminology. I'd spell it out, but that might not work! Let me just say it has nothing to do
with the double-g-word!)
The following year, MKULTRA married bio-crimes, and morphed into MKNAOMI. Which lead to the attack on Washington, DC in the following year, as they
poisoned the water supply of (poorer) parts of the city.
Well, today they are much more advanced of course, but last one from the past, before I put everyone to sleep. 1970, H.R. 15090 funds possibly the
first attempt by humans to create a synthetic biological agent for which no natural immunity exists. The previous year, Dr. Robert MacMahan of Dept
of Defense had made his request of Congress for $10 million so that he could develop his immune-proof bug, which is largely suspected to have produced
an AIDS-like retrovirus. His official timeframe was stated to be, "5 to 10 years". Interesting, considering what we know of when AIDS broke onto
1970. That was a long time ago now. The same year they launched their "ethnic" bio-weapons program that Israel ended up taking the lead on
TODAY, what "don't" we know? Well, what I do know is that those in power do not hesitate to use LETHAL power on innocents. Do they try to stay
under the radar? Sure. Which is why so many are surprised hearing about any of this.
