Where I said despite my typo , lol
"now think of genetically modified resistant strains of birds, owned by monsanto or some other giant agri-business, then see the dollar signs"
Do you see lots of them? Well you should because the potential is there. Think not, think again!
Bio-warfare doesn't have to just be about killing people, though that is always one "benefit". Unfortunately that is just too narrow a view. How about bio-warfare as an economic opportunity?
How about bird flu as a means to wipe-out bird populations, to have them replaced with Genetically Modified Chickens- Problem, Reaction, Solution.
When the bird flu strikes a country, what is the response? Cull the flocks!
Cull or culling is one of those doublespeak ways of saying killing or slaughtering.
Rather like collateral damage is the double speak of choice when civilians are targeted 'mistakenly' or so it is always claimed. Anyway.......
Bird flu fears beget the response, kill or slaughter massive amounts of birds,( I am doing away with the niceties here, and just calling it slaughter)
As was reported here, or here or even here
The problem is by slaughtering birds, you reduce genetic diversity amongst the bird population, to say nothing of reducing the bird population itself.
That is convenient if diversity is not what your after.
What if you were after birds as a controlled mono-culture farming crop?
This bird flu and subsequent culling can be about wiping out a diverse, yet unpatentable food source. Then replacing it with a more appropriate source, shall we say.
A source that alot of money can be made from.
That new highly profitable source ? Genetically modified poultry!!
Complete with a premium price tag to be paid by the farmer to big agri-business, wiping out diversity, crushing the little farmer, ensuring factory farm practices for ever more.
What a dream!
But it isn't really, it is one that agri-business is working hard to fulfill for themselves.
Scientists aim to beat flu with genetically modified chickens
I wonder who is funding this research, and who will benefit from this??
Are you feeling like a guinea pig yet?
