Biological warfare, has been around for a long time, either direct or indirect use. It came to the forefront of everyones mind during World War I.
While there were several treaties that forbid, but during that time frame up until the last treaty was signed in 1972, alot of countries were working
on weaponized biological agents.
While we worry about say a weaponized rabies weapon, but there are several different species of the same virus, and that is not the full horror that
has been develobed in a 50 year timeframe. Or what has been happening to the stockpiles of weapons that many countries has accumulated. For example,
if you think that is bad the following should be enough to give most people pause to think:
In 2009, there was a case where the US army reported missing vials of a harmful pathogen, at their main lab. While it is not lethal, there is always
that chance that what came up missing, could cause death.
There have been at least 2 outbreaks of Ebola in the US, a previous unknown strain.
The Soviet Union had a large biological weapons program, the full details were never fully explained or known, but what is known, the scariest was the
smallpox and Marburg. What was known about Marbug virus that should give us pause, is that it turned out to be an unknown strain of the virus, far
more lethal than the original strain.
And it was known that the Soviets did experiment with the filovirus, to create far more deadlier strains.
Now here is the nightmare scenerio for any country and with the way the world works, it is plausible: All it would take is for someone to be infected
with a virilent disease, one that spreds airborn, and simply travel around any country, and any major city
