US bioweapons labs in Ukraine: What is going to Russia discover within the labs?

Studies from the primary day of the Russian navy operation in Ukraine present that the Ukrainian military doesn’t have a lot to counter the Russian forces. The Ukrainian military was closely armed by NATO, however since most Ukrainian troopers had been conscripted to serve towards their will, their preventing spirit appears to be decidedly low. In lots of locations it’s reported that the Russian military met no resistance on the border and was actually waved by way of by the Ukrainian forces.

The place preventing has occurred, Ukrainian troopers have waved white flags. This isn’t true all over the place, however it appears to have occurred very continuously. Nevertheless, the so-called volunteer battalions specifically, composed of volunteer Ukrainian nationalists, are in all probability resisting fiercely.

Russia reviews that there isn’t any longer a functioning navy airport in Ukraine and that a substantial amount of weaponry, particularly anti-aircraft and artillery, was destroyed within the first few hours. The taking pictures down of a number of Turkish-made Bayraktar drones was additionally reported. CNN filmed Russian troopers allegedly occupying Kiev airport.

This could make sense, as Russia has introduced that one of many objectives of the navy operation is to denazify Ukraine. Apparently, the occupation of civilian airports is meant to restrict the flexibility of these accountable in Ukraine to flee. U.S. bioweapons labs in Ukraine.

I’ve usually reported that the U.S., extra particularly the Pentagon, operates a number of bioweapons labs in Ukraine. The final time I reported on this was on January 27. The U.S. has at all times refused worldwide inspections of its labs, so nobody is aware of what they’re researching in these labs. However we are able to assume that Russian particular forces will take a better take a look at these labs within the coming days.

And this appears to be precisely a can of worms. A tweet was printed on Twitter about this and the consumer was instantly blocked. I received’t go into the content material of the tweet, which might nonetheless be present in an Web archive. If you’re , you’ll be able to view it right here [1].

My level is that Twitter was so fast to delete a tweet and its creator merely as a result of he identified that there are U.S. bioweapons labs in Ukraine and that it appears like their seize is without doubt one of the essential targets of the Russian navy operation.

Russian President Putin stated the next in his tackle to the nation on Monday concerning the Odessa tragedy of Might 2014, wherein practically 50 individuals had been burned alive by radical Maidan supporters and which has by no means been solved in Ukraine:

“The criminals who dedicated this atrocity haven’t been punished and nobody is searching for them. However we all know their names and can do the whole lot to punish them, discover them and convey them to justice.”

Contemplating that the Russian military can also be on its approach to Odessa, some individuals there is likely to be getting very nervous proper now and making an attempt to go away the town rapidly.

The identical goes for the unconventional neo-Nazis who’re in energy in Ukraine. On Russian tv, Russian officers say that additionally they need to maintain these liable for different crimes, for instance within the Donbass [2], accountable.

High Secret Analysis on Artificial Viruses

Between 2008 and 2014, the USA invested roughly $820 million in artificial biology analysis, Protection being a significant contributor. A lot of the navy tasks on artificial biology are categorized, amongst them are quite a lot of categorized research by the secretive JASON group of US navy advisors – e.g. Rising Viruses and Genome Enhancing for the Pentagon, and Artificial Viruses for the Nationwide Counterterrorism Middle.

JASON is an impartial scientific advisory group that gives consulting providers to the U.S. authorities on issues of protection science and know-how. It was established in 1960 and most of their ensuing JASON reviews are categorized. For administrative functions, the JASON’s tasks are run by the MITRE Company, which has contracts with the Protection Division, CIA and the FBI. Since 2014 MITRE has been awarded some $27.4 million in contracts with the DoD.

Though the JASON Studies are categorized, one other US Air Drive examine titled Biotechnology: Genetically Engineered Pathogens, sheds some mild on what the secretive JASON group has researched – 5 teams of genetically engineered pathogens that can be utilized as bio-weapons. These are binary organic weapons (a deadly mixture of two viruses), host swapping ailments (animal viruses that “soar” to people, just like the Ebola virus), stealth viruses, and designer ailments. Designer ailments may be engineered to focus on a sure ethnic group, which means that they can be utilized as ethnic bio-weapons.

Ethnic Bioweapons

Ethnic organic weapon (biogenetic weapon) is a theoretical weapon that goals to primarily hurt individuals of particular ethnicities, or genotypes.

Though formally the analysis and improvement of ethnic bio-weapons have by no means been publicly confirmed, paperwork present that the US collects organic materials from sure ethnic teams – Russians and Chinese language.

Tobacco Vaccines

How the Pentagon helped tobacco firms to revenue from Ebola

The Protection Superior Analysis Tasks Company (DARPA) has invested $100 million in vaccines manufacturing from tobacco crops.

The businesses, concerned within the venture, are owned by the most important American tobacco firms – Mediacago Incis co-owned by Philip Morris and Kentucky BioProcessing, a subsidiary of Reynolds American which is owned by British American Tobacco. At present they’re producing Flu and Ebola vaccines from tobacco crops.

The $100 million program Blue Angel was launched as a response to the H1N1 pandemic in 2009. Medicago being awarded $21 million to supply 10, 000 million doses of an influenza vaccine inside one month.

Blue Angel program supervisor Dr. John Julias explains: “Though there are a number of plant species and different organisms being explored as different protein manufacturing platforms, the US Authorities has continued to make an funding in tobacco-based manufacturing.”

The plant-based vaccine manufacturing methodology works by isolating a selected antigen protein that triggers a human immune response from the focused virus. A gene from the protein is transferred to micro organism, which is used to contaminate crops. The crops then begin producing the protein that will probably be used for vaccinations.

It isn’t clear why the Pentagon choses to spend money on vaccines produced from tobacco crops amongst all different plant species, which they explored. Medicago, co-owned by Philip Morris, paid $495,000 for lobbying the Division of Protection, the Congress and The Division of Well being and Human Providers for “funding to advance know-how to assist public well being preparedness purposes”. The Pentagon funded tobacco firms to develop new know-how and to revenue from vaccines.

Organic Experiments are struggle crimes

Article 8 of The Rome Statute of The Worldwide Prison Courtroom (ICC) defines organic experiments as struggle crimes. The US, nevertheless, shouldn’t be a state occasion to the worldwide treaty, and can’t be held  accountable for its struggle crimes.
