Something here in the west were always told is only done by repressive, tyrannical governments or the Nazi's.
Alleged democracy and freedom loving nations would never do that.....
But, if you read this blog and the news stories I post you know that is just one of the many lies, the false narratives, that keep us in the dark, and worse keep us BELIEVING. The lies come to us largely via our main stream media, that peddle the government fictions. Only many years later does some truth dribble out. But, then it is never given any context, any historical background, it just hangs there. Sadly, people don't take the time to connect the dots for the big picture.
So let's do that today, shall we?!
This first article is from 2007; Bio-weapons spurned by Hitler, but, not by the freedom-loving, democracy bringing US
The U.S. got into the germ-warfare business in 1942, allegedly at the behest of Britain, which feared Hitler was cooking up some world class pestilence.
Turned out they were mistaken-
Hitler early on ordered that ``there was to be no offensive biological weapons research.'' His benevolence may have been the result of having been gassed in World War I"
While Hitler may not have been interested, the US and Japan sure were. Let's take a look at the US angle in this tale.
Why did I highlight San Francisco?
The U.S. program, headquartered at Fort Detrick, Maryland, also used human subjects, though many (how many?) were volunteers.
Most were Seventh-Day Adventists, who as conscientious objectors refused to bear arms. About 2,200 of them agreed to inhale various non-lethal agents that made them, as one expert says, ``pig sick.'' The idea behind the experiment, the show says, was that a sick soldier in the field creates a much greater strain on an army than a dead one.(that is interesting isn't it? A sick soldier is more of a strain then a dead one, remember that all you soldier boys and girls. Better dead then ill)
The government also bombarded several U.S. cities with simulants -- (alleged) non-infectious bacteria -- to assess how biological agents spread. Targets in that super-secret program included San Francisco, St. Louis and Minneapolis.
The end to the U.S. development program may have been partly the result of a 1969 Utah incident in which an ``errant cloud'' of nerve gas was held responsible for killing some 6,000 sheep.
Well, we are going to move ahead to California. San Francisco, to be specific, and read this piece. How the past effects the present. Connecting some dots.
Army test in 1950 may have changed microbial ecology -Serratia has dark history in region.
Serratia is a bacterium that some doctors and residents of the Bay Area have been familiar with for many years. In 1950, government officials believed that serratia did not cause disease. (that alleged non-infectious bacteria from the previous link)
One secret experiment with a bacteria. Long term health consequences borne by an unsuspecting population.
