Russian biological material and theft thereof

For nitpickers: biological material in this case relates to human tissues, blood, urine and stool samples and any other material produced by a living organism.

When a conspiracy nutcase comes up with a new idea, it is usually both sad and funny. When a head of state does it, it becomes a problem.

A sentence stolen from Wiki, says: "Rudimentary forms of biological warfare have been practiced since antiquity". Knowing how human mind works, one could make a pretty safe educated guess: the conspiracy theories about use, development and abilities of the biological warfare tools started more or less at the same time. Of course, it is a bit difficult to believe that the Biological Weapons Convention is strictly upheld by all the players in that dirty game. After all, the research of the defensive measures is still allowed, so every self-respecting state is researching, and how do you research the defense if you don't have any samples of the offensive substance? A conundrum, isn't it?

Anyhow, to conspiracies. A good example will be an article on a thoroughly bonkers Global Research site, titled Ebola Epidemic Linked to CIA: Former NSA Contractor. The mere name of the author: Kurt Nimmo, "a longtime former editor for Alex Jones' Infowars.com", should ring a loud bell with any connoisseur of a good conspiracy theory. And the opening sentence of the article,

Investigative journalist and former NSA contractor Wayne Madsen told Press TV on Monday the latest Ebola outbreak in Africa may be a resurfacing of an earlier infection linked to the CIA.

where another heavyweight, Wayne Madsen is used as a reference, should really get that connoisseur salivating. Two grand masters of the game in one piece! Oh, and by the way, AIDS is also a CIA invention, as you shall see in that article.

Of course, where the Big Satan is involved, the Little Satan follows (or leads, depending on the speaker). I loath to link to the conspiracy sites directly, so a Wiki entry will do: Ethnic bioweapon.

In November 1998, The Sunday Times reported that Israel was attempting to build an "ethno-bomb" containing a biological agent that could specifically target genetic traits present amongst Arab populations. Wired News also reported the story, as did Foreign Report.
Microbiologists and geneticists were skeptical towards the scientific plausibility of such a biological agent. The New York Post, describing the claims as "blood libel", reported that the likely source for the story was a work of science fiction by Israeli academic Doron Stanitsky. Stanitsky had sent his completely fictional work about such a weapon to Israeli newspapers two years before. The article also noted the views of genetic researchers who claimed the idea as "wholly fantastical", with others claiming that the weapon was theoretically possible.

Whatever. These examples are by no means exhaustive. The 'net is fairly jumping with the blood curdling stories about despicable scientists producing in their deadly vials more and more deadly concoctions, every new one more sophisticated and murderous than the previous.

The last example, the one of that ethnic bioweapon, though, is directly relevant to the matter at hand, the theft of the Russian biological materialand the dark goals of that theft. 

Director of the "Russian Public Institute of Electoral Law" Igor Borisov told Putin that some foreign forces allegedly collect images of citizens who came to the polls. "The question is: what is the goal of such a number of interested people watching our elections and conducting video recording of the actual image of the voters and how will it be used," he said.

"As for the fact that the images of our citizens and voters are collected and somehow used: images are okay, but do you know that biological material is collected all over the country? Moreover, for different ethnic groups and people living in different geographical points of the Russian Federation. That's the question - what it is being done for?," Putin said in response.

He added that such activities are conducted "purposefully and professionally". "We are an object of very great interest," the president concluded. He called for treating this situation without fear. "Let them do what they want, and we must do what we must," Putin concluded*.

So this passage teaches us about two possible venues the enemies of Russia are exploring:

  • Stealing the images of Soviet Russian citizens. The goal is obvious: to prepare voodoo dolls of the said citizens and to stick needles into them, burn them with matches etc.
  • Studying the genetic code of Russian citizens in order to create a superbug that will kill only Russians.

On the other hand, if one is to believe the epic discovery made by the (in)famous Russian minister of culture, one Vladimir Medinsky, all Russians have a distinct genetic code, characterized by an additional chromosome. So that a virus or a bacteria being developed will have an easy marker to aim at. On the other hand, since the said minister has less than two oars in the water at the best of times, it might be a little more difficult. 

Not that there aren't a few problems to resolve for them eggheads. First of all, how will that superbug distinguish between Russians and other Slavs? That same problem that boggles the Zionist eggheads, what with practically identical genetic code of Jews and Arabs. Maybe it's time to focus on finer details? Like a superbug that will be able to home in on the person's passport? Or a superbug that will kill off only Russian speakers?

Oops...

I’m not sure if I follow your message.  Are you suggesting that the Russians don’t have a clandestine biological weapons program? If so, there is no conspiracy at play, they do have a sophisticated biological weapons program and have used them several times…to our knowledge.  The two most obvious examples are when they killed Viktor Yushchenko and the other was Moscow theater hostage crisis.  It’s anybody’s guess how many times they’ve used these weapons that we don’t know about.    
Simply Jews Added Nov 9, 2017 - 10:28am
If you follow the words of the fearless leader in this story, he hints very broadly at the nefarious plans of some foreign power (read USA) that is interesting in genetic material that will allow to target the Russian population.
 
And indeed they killed many people (but not Yushchenko, who recovered eventually) using sophisticated, but not biological, means. Mostly poisons and poisonous compounds, like Polonium in case of Alexander Litvinenko, some clever toxin in case of Vladimir Kara-Murza etc. etc.
 
But no, what Putin says is a typical conspiracy theory about a possibility of a virus that will home on a genetic sequence, which is specific to Russians. It is, of course, bullshit...
Utpal Patel Added Nov 9, 2017 - 10:40am
I follow what you’re saying now and thanks for correcting me on the Yushchenko thing.
 
The fact of the matter is that no matter the populace, everyone seems to believe in some grand conspiracy.  Kudos to Putin for figuring out a way to use the Russian people’s love for conspiracies to his advantage.
 
As for Americans, from JFK to 9/11 to Sandy Hook to Vegas, I would guess 90% of the population here believes one of those things was a conspiracy.

@Utpal,
 
Indeed, people seem to be thirsty for conspiracy theories. Good part of it is because we don't believe our governments, but there are some other reasons at play, I guess.

Conspiracy theories result from a lack of trust. I would assume that the 90% of the population who believe conspiracy theories also ascribe to Don Freeman's "If you trust the government you obviously failed history."
As we watch our nation lurching toward nihilism some might wonder if the erosion in morals and ethics and the concomitant rise in violence stems from an overarching conspiracy on the part of the so-called establishment or if we are simply witnessing natural entropy in the human condition.
Either way it is not a conspiracy theory to point out that deals sealed with a hand shake, keys left in the ignition and unlocked doors while away on an errand are definitely relics of the past.
Simply Jews Added Nov 9, 2017 - 1:19pm
@Rick,
 
Yes to the lack of trust as a chief reason, I think I mentioned it too.
As for the erosion: I am far from being an expert, but my gut feeling will be - yes, entropy. Slow decay of an empire - like all of them before.

What troubles me isn’t the conspiracy theory, it’s the simple fact Russians believe Americans want them dead.  We have nothing against the Russian people.  It’s the fact they have a dictator at the helm that appears more power hungry than any dictator before him.  After all, to stay in power he changed the Constitution and killed-off or jailed his opponents.  No politician dare oppose him and no bordering country stands a chance against his military.  Making matters worse is his desire to expand Russia’s territory and influence.   It’s a dangerous time, I believe our only hope for a clean resolution is for the Russian people to rise up and oust him. Those people are potentially our last hope for peace, so there is no reason to kill them all.    
Simply Jews Added Nov 10, 2017 - 10:08am
Indeed, and you might be astonished to see the level of anti-American propaganda and the resulting level of anti-American discourse that became so common lately there. 
Ari Silverstein Added Nov 10, 2017 - 10:24am
I'm astonished by all the anti-American propaganda throughout all of Europe.  You get a pretty good glimpse of it here on Writer Beat.

Ari: Ohhhhh yes. And that is only the echo. It's maddening! And nobody says something. Our media are all very samish, and very hostile to conservatives and to Americans. Of course, they would never admit to be racist, but they are.
Simply Jews Added Nov 11, 2017 - 3:06am
One thing for sure: support for all that hate is a good means to make one's own people forget the problems of their own. Especially when you blame the hated Americans for the good part of them. An ancient recipe that always works, unfortunately.
Nicolas von Schatz Added Nov 11, 2017 - 9:48pm
Well, how Russian of them. After being saved from multiple starvations, defeat in WW2, post-Soviet crisis and Hell knows what else by naïve Americans, ruskies decide to show an act of gratitude by restoring GULAG empire with a fully-functional propaganda institution (now powered by Western tech), running world domination errands. And the West never learns.
If ruskies gonna wage a new Cold War and demonize the West anyway, perhaps it's time to give them some REAL reason to be afraid?
Simply Jews Added Nov 12, 2017 - 4:04am
@Nicolas,
 
Well, there are some historical reasons for Russian paranoia, after all they have been besieged and sometimes conquered by most of their neighbours. However, nowadays hystrionics are definitely "man made" by the Russian leadership. The verbal belligerence might very well come to a boiling point, especially with the several territorial conflicts Kremlin created. 
 
Not to mention their wet dream of renaissance of the big bad USSR in its full glory. Yes, it is a danger, but I am not sure the West has the guts to do something about it. Not simple, with Russian stock of nukes and missiles and quite well developed ground forces, much more streamlined and efficient than they were during the USSR days.

Hey, you don't come out of a career in the KGB without learning a thing or two, right?  Even down to his willingness to take off his shirt at the drop of a hat, Putin is slick, masterful in how he pushes enough people a certain way to maintain power.  And notice how many, if not all of these questionable notions has a racial, divisive bent?  Sound familiar!?  But for real, is the conspiracy of some nefarious bio program aimed at specific, what(?) genomes, of a particular people that far fetched in this day and age? They're making strides in genome identification in other areas so I wouldn't put anything past any government today.  So, is Putin using conspiracy theory to herd his populace?  Probably, that's why he likes his buddy Trump here in America, but at the same time I would not discount the existence of any bio weapon/program because it sounds so fantastic.  
Eileen de Bruin Added Nov 12, 2017 - 11:27am
Wow, well yes, it is most plausible. Mustard gas was used in WW1 so why wouldn’t bio material be used to hone in on and control people?
 
Anything really does go it seems. Putin is like any other powerful man and, indeed, a product of his upbringing and his life’s work.  So is Trump.
 
The use of such biology and chemistry to create an unfair advantage is as normal a transition as any other kind of war fare. And no, governments cannot come clean to its people now can it?
Simply Jews Added Nov 12, 2017 - 11:51am
@Ben,
 
Right about Putin, he is all that you said. As for:
 
"But for real, is the conspiracy of some nefarious bio program aimed at specific, what(?) genomes, of a particular people that far fetched in this day and age? "
 
Nope. I know a few biologists. Plainly speaking - impossible. We are not different enough.

Answered in the previous comment. Thankfully, impossible, because everyone will croak. Which is good on the whole, don't you agree?

@ Simply Jews
If ruskies only had such thing as historical memory. Now, all what they care about is GULAG, sh#t and thuggery. To be perfectly clear, ability to harass neighbors for which they gladly become b#tches to their own government and Botox-pumped bald pedophile Putin.
 
But even here, poor ruskies managed to get into trouble. Their mighty glorious army has been trounced all around Donbass by loose, ill-equipped Ukrainian volunteers units. So the only thing about which I can agree with you here is terrible lack of GUTS in the modern West.

Simply J, mmmm, but I do guess that masses can be contained and targeted of course, with extra losses not seen as a deterrent surely? Wherever it is going, it is about the leaders and their entourages and the hierarchies.  Power. As ever.
 
Nicolas, I didn’t know that Putin was a botox pumped paedophile...!   
 
Simply J, perhaps it will be botox usage throughout Europe and the US which will get us in the end eh?

Eileen,
 
" but I do guess that masses can be contained and targeted of course, with extra losses not seen as a deterrent surely? "
 
Definitely yes. Develop a virus or bacteria that doesn't have a known treatment, develop a drug that will save the selected few and voila: let the virus out into the wild and just wait a while. No overpopulation, no enemies etc. I hope it will never happen. 
 
"perhaps it will be botox usage throughout Europe and the US which will get us in the end eh?"
 
Now this one, if I am to judge by the photographs of the duck faces on the 'net, is a definite danger. Botox is winning ;-)
