Biowarfare? Genetically Modified Mosquitos Spreading the Zika Virus
by Stephen Lendman
The Zika virus is related to dengue fever, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and West Nile viruses.
So far, drugs aren’t effective against it. A vaccine if developed will do more harm than good. Most infected individuals suffer mild illness, called Zika disease.
Potentially deadly Guillain-Barre syndrome at times occurs. Fetuses are at risk for microcephaly, an abnormally small head in relation to the rest of the body and underdeveloped brain, permanent damage.
Zika has been around for decades, occasional outbreaks occurring in Africa and Asia – currently in Central and South America, Brazil its epicenter.
It’s being spread by genetically engineered mosquitos. Is it the latest example of US biowarfare? America’s sordid history suggests it.
In 1931, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads infected human subjects with cancer cells – under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations. He later conducted radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.
In 1932, the Tuskegee Syphilis Study infected 200 unwitting Black men, using them as human guinea pigs, denying them treatment, following the progression of their disease, deliberately letting them suffer and die.
In 1940, 400 Chicago prisoners were infected with malaria to study the effects of new and experimental drugs.
At least since the 1940s, America had an active biological warfare program, using controversial methods to test bioweapons.
VA hospital patients have been used as human guinea pigs for medical experiments. Biological agents were released in US cities (including New York and San Francisco) to test the effects of germ warfare.
America’s deplorable history at home and abroad includes numerous other examples. Washington uses biological, chemical, radiological and other banned weapons in all its wars.
Are US-unleashed genetically modified mosquitos being used to wage biological warfare in Central and South America?
The Zika virus outbreak is linked to GM mosquitos released in field trials funded by Bill Gates.
The corporate-controlled World Health Organization (WHO) said Zika “is now spreading explosively” in the Americas, hyping an estimated three to four million people at risk over the next year.
Central and South American nations urged women to avoid pregnancy for at least two years. Is Zika being used as an attempted population control scheme?
GM mosquitos allegedly released to keep dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunga (a crippling mosquito-borne virus) and zika from spreading are facilitating its outbreaks in numerous Central and South American countries – notably Brazil and Colombia.
The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) warned of potential small Zika outbreaks in southern Florida and Texas.
UK biotech company Oxford Insect Technologies developed GM mosquitos with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funding – a profit-making enterprise, masquerading as a charitable one.
One critic called its operations “vulture philanthropy,” investing in companies causing health problems they claim to be combatting.
Not coincidentally, Zika’s outbreak occurred where GM mosquitos were released last year in Brazil, now affecting about 20 Central and South American countries.
Maybe areas in southern US states will follow. What’s happening has the earmarks of state-sponsored biowarfare.
