Military Pollution: SARS-CoV-2 and Now 'Forever Chemicals'

As we’ve pointed out for months, the reckless lab engineering or so-called gain-of-function experiments that gave rise to SARS-CoV-2 at Wuhan were conducted in a dangerously unregulated, accident-prone lab considered “dual-use” by U.S. and Chinese military officials. “Dual-use” refers to the lab engineering of microbes and pathogens, such as coronaviruses, which have both military and medical applications. 

Bioweapon production violates international law, the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, signed by the U.S., China, Russia and most other nations, and is considered a crime against humanity, but if you categorize it as “biodefense” or “biomedical/vaccine” research you can literally get away with mass murder, as the pandemic has shown.  

For decades researchers have been trying to warn us against these biowar experiments, as this 2007 article on the OCA website points out, but unfortunately the GM military madness with Big Pharma/biotech collaboration has continued.

The primary and insidious reason why the Chinese military and the Pentagon fund certain types of “biomedical” research (along with Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and government medical funders such as Fauci’s National Institutes of Health or the Chinese National Academy of Sciences) is because the military understands quite well that genetically engineered, souped-up, essentially weaponized viruses and bacteria (and insects such as ticks) have military uses as well as (supposed) applications in medicine.

 OCA’s Political Director, Alexis Baden-Mayer has been researching and writing about gain-of-function experiments since the beginning of the pandemic. Other journalists including Whitney Webb and Sam Husseini have done the same.

The anthrax attacks in the US in 2001, which created mass panic and paved the way for the Patriot Act and the endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, were carried out using weaponized, aerosolized anthrax bacteria, called the “Ames strain,” which was exclusively lab-engineered by the US military and released by a cabal of military/government insiders who obviously had access to these deadly pathogens, and strategically timed their release shortly after 9/11.

 Now there’s another kind of military pollution we have to worry about, PFAS or “Forever Chemicals” leaching from flame retardants, flame-resistant wiring, and other military equipment. These deadly chemicals are polluting millions of Americans’ drinking water, irrigation water, sewage sludge (applied on non-organic farms as fertilizer) and food. PFAS contamination is considered very dangerous even at parts per trillion.
