It sounds like something out of a bizarre science fiction comic book, but scientists have weaponized the H5N1 bird flu virus, and are actually considering releasing the research. The experiments, which involved mutating the virus a total of 5 times, made the strain highly contagious between ferrets — the very animal model used to study human flu infection. Of course many scientists are now warning that if such research was made public it could result in the construction of deadly bioweapons.

Making the virus highly contagious could result in widespread infection. The H5N1 virus has been infecting birds and other animals in recent years, though it has also infected around 500 people. The reason that it has not become an epidemic is due to the fact that affected humans are usually not very contagious. Therefore, altering the virus to become highly contagious is quite possibly the deadliest tweak which could be done. It seems that these scientists are just asking for the new weaponized bird flu virus to infect the public.

Bioterrorism Fears Arise as Scientists Push to Release Weaponized Bird Flu Research

Dr. Thomas Inglesby, a bioterrorism expert and director of the Center for Biosecurity of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, notes that it is simply a bad idea for scientists to militarize bird flu, let alone publish the results:

“It’s just a bad idea for scientists to turn a lethal virus into a lethal and highly contagious virus. And it’s a second bad idea for them to publish how they did it so others can copy it,” says Inglesby.

So far no scientific journal has published the findings, and Inglesby hopes that none of them will. Virologist Ron Fouchier of the Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands is responsible for weaponizing the virus and presenting the findings at a flu conference held in Malta. He has recently come under attack by an organization known as the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity, a committee of independent experts on biological research.

Ron Fouchier mutating the virus to become highly contagious is shocking enough, but the fact that some scientists are now pushing for the release of the research is beyond outlandish. It seems apparent that these scientists have zero regard for public health.

    So this is why they have millions of casket liners (actually plastic containers that encase caskets). These plastic containers can hold about seven people. They are stored all over the USA. Some people say they are cremation vaults with a hole in the bottom for drainage. Use your search engine to find articles on these things, they are also called "FEMA coffins".

    I think it was Shakespeare that wrote the idea that “the poison and the antidote were brewed in the same pot.”

    The point being that the same laboratories creating these weaponized strains of diseases are part and parcels of the same industry creating the vaccines – so why would anyone trust this industry to inject them with anything under the banner that it will keep them safe when the entire medical industry seems funded by a group of sociopaths waging a war on humanity?

    What a great way to cause a pandemic without taking full responsibility.

    Release the results, nefarious individuals craft a bioweapon, free of blame!

  • Ralph

    Then when a bioweapon is unleashed they'll blame it on the terrorists.

  • John

    The very definition of mad scientists. Obviously they intend on letting it out.

  • LGore

    Does beg the question who is funding Dr. Fouchier?

    The military you say?

    No, definitely not the military.

    The government you say?

    No, not possible?

    So who?

    Who is funding the good doctors work?

    • Leigh

      It seems apparent it was funded by those who seek to blame it on Al-Qaeda.

    • Joe Myrick

      The CIA ie GH Bush
