Virus warfare’ in China: military documents Chinese military scientists discussed the weaponization of SARS coronaviruses five years before the COVID-19 pandemic, outlining their ideas in a document that predicted a “third world war would be fought with biological weapons”.
from Ben Vidgen
A document written by Chinese scientists and Chinese public health officials in 2015 discussed the weaponisation of SARS coronavirus. Titled The Unnatural Origin of SARS and New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons, the paper predicted that World War Three would be fought with biological weapons.
Released five years before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, it describes SARS coronaviruses as a “new era of genetic weapons” that can be “artificially manipulated into an emerging human disease virus, then weaponised and unleashed in a way never seen before”
Peter Jennings, the executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), told news.com.au that the document is as close to a “smoking gun” as we’ve got. “I think this is significant because it clearly shows that Chinese scientists were thinking about military application for different strains of the coronavirus and thinking about how it could be deployed,” said Mr Jennings.
“It begins to firm up the possibility that what we have here is the accidental release of a pathogen for military use,” added Mr Jennings w said that the document might explain why China has been so reluctant for outside investigations into the origins of COVID-19. “If this was a case of transmission from a wet market it would be in China’s interest to co-operate … we’ve had the opposite of that.”
Oh and just to remind you as noise was made this week of once more kicking New Zealand out of Five Eyes the WHO Covid Task force was subject to critique on two grounds.
One: US backed critiques of Helen Clark who sits on the WHO board overseeing Covid 19 believed she could not be trusted to be neutral visa China. The World Health Organization (WHO) mission, said it was “extremely unlikely” that the virus spread from a lab leak in the city of Wuhan.
Which brings us to a long brewing spy scandal bubbling away in the back ground which has being left largely underreported (now that’s an understatement) in New Zealand press.
An affair which dates back to around the 44rd government under a National, widely linked to the partisan UN Food For Oil program ( with further rumours of a high level mole in Labour dating back to the 1960’s) which both Labour and National had involvement with at various stages..
New Zealand can be found brokering deals, via third parties such as HSA Yemen, Vina Milk Vietnam (involving Russian mobsters and former head of the NZ Dairy Board Ian Robertson on contract to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and operations out of the NZ consulate in Hanoi), related to the United Nation failed Food For Oil program. An event documented by Official Information Act documents, press reports, and international watchdog groups, such as Transparency International which publicly criticised New Zealand’s unwillingness to investigate New Zealand firms involved in the program (including Fonterra) role in kickbacks paid for UN humanitarian tender contracts in Iraq which then saw Soviet weapons traded technology for oil, traded for commodity goods.
Mirroring earlier repeated reported rumours NZ was offered Soviet weapons for a massive dairy debt Russia had racked up due to unpaid butter and dairy import bill which former Prime Minister Jim Bolger confirmed as true. The UN Food For Oil kickbacks involving numerous parties identified as involved in massive scale money. Money laundering transaction which also mirror those when a NZ leased Russian Antonov was found shipping North Korean weapons to a middle east nation believed to be Iran. An event which triggered off an international Five Eyes headed investigation into money laundering of the companies involved. This included tax haven banks*1 based in Vanuatu found trading Russian minerals used in nuclear weapons manufacture for oil traded for commodities such as European Bank head by a partner to the GT Group who investigators and journalist focused on.
The ultimate winner of UN Food For Oil kickback and the SP transaction fiscally appears, to be China’s Hong Kong Bank who handled the payments and transaction for all the official parties (and their third party affiliates), over seen by UN Envoy David Mace a New Zealand accountant then a senior partner in Ernst Yung Hong Kong. A factor which netted China huge gains with the primary winners of the scam being Russia according to the Washington Post.
1* = Such as former New Zealand Dairy board executive Ian Robertson Prok bank based in Vanuatu and Vostock Exports who according to their website deals in NZ butter Middle Eastern Oil and Russian Munitions. Prok Bank was also a minority share holder in precious mineral traders Wellnet Holding along with executives from Fay Richwhite Russian front firms who made up 10% of the firms shares the rest dominated by State Owned Chinese Hedge Funds).
It would be during this same era our government hired former Russian biological warfare Alexander Kouzminov to oversee zoonotic outbreak in New Zealand.
Kouzminov, a former biological warfare scientist who defected (who has failed to win FBI endorsement), is the author of Biological Warfare a book released in the 1990’s which alleged biological warfare was already taking place and being aimed at civilian populations.
Kouzminov later went to work for the Waikato council as strategic planner for water infrastructure in Waikato. In the same time frame (2019) he became a strategic planner at the time a computer over seeing Hamilton waster water plant was used with official password to release several hundred tonnes of biologically hazardous raw affluent.
New Zealand & Australia water reservoirs and waste water sewerage sites have virtually zero or minimal security and surveillance and vulnerable to sabotage or as source of biological contaminants.
Kouzminov appointment to Waikato water board — came at the same time Kouzminov’s business partner sought to become involved in New Zealand’s privatising water trade.
The New Zealand Herald would when investigating this tie Kouzminov’s business partner Russian oligarch Mikhail Khimich (who made his money supplying the Russian military with oil) to an attempt to bribe a police officer so they would leak data from the New Zealand police’s own data base — The Kouzminov Khimich affair precedes the 2018 Cameron Ortis spy scandal in Canada (where Wuhan partners, where also linked to espionage in Canada’s leading pathogen research facilities). This is where the former Canadian spy was found leaking data to organised crime. Specifically Ortis is known to have overseen the case of financial investigation where billions of dollars was found tied to a New Zealand money laundering ring dominated by Chinese & Russian interest including those linked to Russian hackers Fancy Bear who attacked New Zealand cyber targets in 2020.
The criminal ring specifically exploited weakness that both Labour and National have (despite repeated cases of New Zealand’s banks being used for extreme levels of money laundering) done very very little to prevent. The lack of action in fact is at a level where it can only be said to be a result of gross incompetence or gross corruption.
Notably Ortis investigated criminal groups who belong to the terminology transnational crime a term which covers the point at which criminal and state interest overlap.
The Ortis affair has unequivocally outed New Zealand as the weakest link in the Five Eyes alliance repeatedly. But in this case blame can be pointed at both the governments of Helen Clark (Labour) and John Key (National) with Key actually changing charity tax laws in 2009 to benefit money laundering groups. While both Labour New Zealand First and National have featured prominently in cases by the Serious Fraud Office tied to inappropriate donation by parties backed state owned Chinese interest tied to Chinese military intelligence.
Two: The task force is reciving criticism because it is lead by Dr. Peter Daszak President of EcoHealth Alliance, a US-based organization with Department of Defence funding to carry out its research with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China, which has been at the centre of rumours that the COVID-19 pandemic was caused by a coronavirus released from its laboratory. So effectively WHO permitted a possible suspect to investigate themselves.
The WHO task force to China included Dr Peter Daszak, We’ve done a lot of work in China and if you map that back it starts to “point towards the border”. That the focus on where the origins that led to Covid-19 might be, could be shifted to South East Asia where Eco Health Alliance is also involved with numerous NGO and undiscovered pathogen seeking operations.
EcoHealth Alliance and Daszak have been working with Shi Zhengli, a virologist at the Wuhan Institute, for more than 15 years.
Eco health Alliance partners also include Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health who sponsored the livestock breeding program conference (with the who firm set up for the event going into liquidation afterwards) which was responsible for the initial outbreaks in NZ (along with cases traced to NZ military personnel who had played sports with American military personnel).
Eco Health Alliance board of director reads like a whose who of pharmaceutical companies gaining from Covid. Such as Calvin Schmidt their President, a specialist in Cardiovascular & Metabolism, at Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Schmidt is also a member of the Consumer Group Operating Committee, who featured strongly in the multi billion dollar law suit which threatened to sink both Merck and Johnson and Johnson after court ruling showed the firms had aggressively marketed opioid pain killers. This is despite knowing their were risk (including to cardiovascular and metabolism damage) and that the painkillers were responsible for tens of thousands of deaths.
In 2020 Schmidt chaired the “NDHI disaster preparedness and response steering committee” a body which compromised largely of the same pharmaceutical companies now facing lawsuits for the opioid painkillers that killed tens of thousands of American.
The virtual summit on “disaster readiness and response” is to be released in early 2021 and will evaluate evaluate “potential preparedness, response capabilities” and “opportunities” and is based on the same ‘road map’ model the industry used in 2018 to deal with the opioid addiction big pharma faced after being exposed as being responsible for tens of thousands of deaths resulting in tsunami of lawsuits worth tens of billion dollar law suits which threatened some of the West’s biggest pharmaceutical conglomerates.
This is withstanding the evidence of COVID appearing in other locations (than china) early 2019 well before it emerged in late 2019 China (at less outside a lab), including being spotted in discharged sewerage waste water readings in European states of France, Belgium, Spain, and Italy, primarily NATO Nations (who all attended the military games held in Wuhan).
There are also signs the virus emerged in the US before it surfaced in China including State of Virginia. Which is were several nursing homes for military veterans in Virginia experienced multiple fatalities caused by a mystery Covid like flu in July 2019.
It is also where US bases involved in SARS and other US Defence Eco Health Alliance vaccination programs for the third world saw evacuation for military families suffering respiratory issues caused allegedly by black mould.
Robert Redfield, the director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, responding to Rep. Harley Rouda’s questions during the US House Oversight Committee discussion on the novel coronavirus response. The exchange follows thus;
Rouda asked, “So we could have some people in the United States dying for what appears to be influenza when in fact it could be the coronavirus?”
Redfield “some cases have actually been diagnosed that way in the United States today.“
In additon a report by TV Asahi Corporation of Japan, reports the US Centre for Disease Control suspected that patients in America who were among those thought to have died of flu in the past few months (October November 2019) may have actually died of COVID-19.
The partially constructed vaccine shipment to Virginian military bases in June July 2019 ties back in turn to problem in Mercks production line caused by cyber attack.
It resulted inbreak down in quality control, following a 2017 hack which caused a billions dollars. To catch up to its production schedule Merck made bulk shipment which were shipped in mass to the US bases. Tis is opposed to the usual smaller shipments for which quality control and safety inspections were set up to handle.
The billion dollar hack is being investigated by Mercks own security headed by a former US colonel tied to the Domesday Clock advisory board Westpoint graduate Martha Van Driel a Chinese (Taiwanese) American.
Prior to joining Merck, Martha retired as a U.S. Army Colonel, serving as the Director for Cyber Mission Force Readiness at the Office of the Principal Cyber Advisor, U.S. Office of the Secretary of Defense Prior to joining Merck, Martha retired as a U.S. Army Colonel, serving as the Director for Cyber Mission Force Readiness at the Office of the Principal Cyber Advisor, U.S. Office of the Secretary of Defense.
In 1991, Martha became the first Taiwanese-American woman to graduate from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, graduating in the top 10% of her class. Martha’s father, Henry Hsu, was critical of the ruling anti Communist China KMT government who she claims intercepted letters, placed Henry on a blacklist, and harassed Henry’s family so badly that they told him, “For your safety, do not return to Taiwan. And for our safety, please do not communicate with us any longer.” Martha is a member of ‘Friends of Taiwan a political action group that sides with Washington’s Hawks over China.
A third source critical of WHO investigation is Dr Li-meng Yan, a defector from a Hong Kong virology lab, who has constantly contradicted WHO and Dasak’s group of big pharma lobbyist (who single handily can be identified as the primary source quoted in western corporate media who deny Wuhan is linked to Covid 19). Yan maintains the Covid-19 virus was not from nature. Dr Yan who has appeared on a number of television interview, and published two scientific reports to prove that the virus is man-made, and is intended to be part of an unrestricted bio-wepon program. Yan alleges that the Chinese government and the World Health Organization (WHO) knew about the person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 earlier than they reported or made public, and suppressed both her research and that of others.
The Washington Post in an article which is critical of Yan (but fails to disprove her claims or the counter claims by unnamed American scientist cited in the article who fail to provide examples of why her work is flawed writes “Yan, who previously was a postdoctoral fellow at Hong Kong University but fled to the United States in April, (fearing for her safety – editors insert) agreed in an interview with The Washington Post that online scientific sites are vulnerable to abuse, but she rejected the argument that her story is a case study in this problem. Rather, Yan said, she is a dissident trying to warn the world about what she says is China’s role in creating the coronavirus. She used Zenodo, with its ability to instantly publish information without restrictions, because she feared the Chinese government would obstruct publication of her work. Her academic critics, she argued, will be proven wrong“.
The finger pointing and counter allegations thus continues.
However it is equally interesting to note that while each accusation and counter accusation unfolds the one party not widely being considered for blame is the Big pharma itself.
This is despite its own documentable record for accidents, product failures caused by short cuts and the desire for profit (and multiple attempted cover ups), which can be proven to have cost of tens of thousands of lives. Because the same corporation, now leading the planets response to Covid 19, knowingly marketed a product as safe which they knew was not the case. A decision that not only cost them billions of dollars in profits (nice recovered as a result of Covid) but risk exposing the scale of corporate corruption that exist within the industry where profit not human health seems the real motivation and interest of the pharmaceutical conglomerates.
Further regardless of whether Covid has any connection to the labs in question be that interest driven by America, China, or other parties, collectively the entire situation has over the past year high lighted if nothing else just how dangerous these Labs are in the context that;
A) The attention caused by Covid crisis has served to demonstrate how biological weapons are now seen as a front line weapon a reflection of the mind set of our global political, corporate and military leaders. These labs involved in both seeking answers for pathogens in the same breath they are part of the process which serves to weaponize such pathogens – we should all be as nervous as hell regarding the current geopolitical land scape were events orchestrated or not risk propelling us towards the scenario considered by government analyst regardless of weather it has take place to date. A major point which few have considered to date.
B) The lab accusation have highlighted and underscored just how dysfunctional and dangerous the establishment, tasked to protect us, are.
For these facilities have dual role. They are part of the process which helps us create vaccines to safe us from pathogen. They also Factories of Death were the very same scientist, seemingly work for the highest bidder, in weaponizing lethal pathogens such as Covid 19 as the Australian Strategic Policy Institute report now proves.
Money, as is the case across big pharma, seem the primary concern (regardless of an exceptionally well funded and connected lobby strategy which claims other wise). While the idea of ethics and decency seem to take second place in industry rocked by accidents, mass theft, state based espionage, corporate espionage and an administrational model that seem to attract equally dysfunctional and greed based leadership.
Again a significant issue relating to global security, not up for debate (n the context that dysfunctional is clearly wide spread in the industry and can be documented as such), which Covid has again exposed.
Oh and to be fair to China they are simply replicating the very same Cold war strategy first pioneered by Australia in the 1950’s to check China’s regional expansion.
The idea of using a biological plague that would hinder the economy and destroy their food supply was considered seriously by Australia as alternative to Australia developing its own nuclear weapons program during the Cold war period.
In 1954 Sir Macfarlane Burnet, the Nobel prize winner secretly urged the government to develop biological weapons for use against Indonesia and other “overpopulated” countries of South-East Asia. A revelation contained in top-secret files declassified by the National Archives of Australia (despite resistance from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) show Macfarlane recommended in 1947 for biological and chemical weapons be developed to target food crops and spread infectious diseases.
A seemingly fictional scenario which however the New Zealand government own adviser of zoonotic diseases, the controversial biowarfare scientist Kouzminov, say is in fact is taking place.
Kouzminov further is simply mirroring the statement made by the later environmentalist David Bellamy (and those including this author who began warning of a covert biological warfare exiting in the wake of Kelly’s death). Specifically those broadcast on Nine To Noon With Catherine Ryan that his friend David Kelly (the Porton Down weapons scientist widely considered as having being murdered for his role as a whistle blower) had told him “the orcs have being allowed out to play.”
Bellamy message was a stark warning that biological weapons and strategies such as those talked about by Kouzminov and Burnett were indeed taking place in reality. That biological ‘first strikes’ were being considered seriously by NATO and it allies as post perestroika (the end of the first Cold War) cracks began emerging in West East détente in the wake of 9/11 – which saw the Western military industrial sector surge in wealth and political power – and global economic inequality grow between the first and third world caused by corporate vision (lead by Big Tech and Big Pharma) of globalisation that was focused solely on on the unsustainable goal of achieving ever greater profits.
Further the case of actual biowarfare attacks continues to mount up in the 21st century post 9/11.
They include the 2001 Anthrax attack (traced back to no less that the US military’s own top biowarfare laboratory Fort Detrick’s now closed by the FBI such was the scale of it dysfunctional operations), Syria and even the Sarin attack of in Japan in 1995 and New Zealand Rabbit Calcic biosecurity fiasco which is worthy of mention.
The RCD case in summary is when RCD entered New Zealand in 2009 unknowingly, having also entered with out detection in 1995:
RCD had some how escaped a level four security facility located 600 miles off Australia mainland swum to Australia and then jumped on plane to New Zealand.
The mysterious (never identified) RCD outbreak in NZ occurred after a review board made up of three biowarfare experts including the Minister of Health (at the time Kouzimonov was their chief expert on infectious diseases) , Robert Shope a controversial US Army researcher based at Fort Detricks and US Army Colonel Donald Burke also a controversial Fort Detrick researcher, was exposed as lacking the needed expertise to declare it safe by RCD world specialist Dr Alvin Smith .
Others termed the RCD release a biowarfare experiment and compared it to a fatal top secret biological experiments carried out by the US in Christchurch on New Zealand soldiers stationed at Burnham Military Camp in Christchurch destine do a tour of duty in Vietnam and Malaysia in the 1960’s (as NZ and Australia singed up to fight the so called ‘dominoes affect’ with America in South East Asia). An era where soldiers were also exposed to Chemical warfare agents such as Agent Orange also made secretly in New Zealand by Dow Chemicals unknown to New Zealand public at the time. With peace researcher Owen Wilkes also found evidence of secret biological and chemical warfare research conducted in New Zealand via academic working at both Canterbury, Victoria the University of Auckland and Dow Chemicals.
Biowarfare is proving it self, as a new cold war builds up, as the perfect tool to add the tool box in a modern age of asymmetrical or hybrid warfare. A form of warfare where the ultimate aim is warfare which targets people commerce and food supply’s while leaving industrial asset and valuable resources chiefly unharmed.
Mehmet Ogutcu, Chairman of the London Energy Club, warns “tomorrow’s wars will no longer be fought by tanks, fighter jets, and missiles,. Biological viruses are part of this ruthless asymmetrical warfare”
“Not surprisingly, the corona outbreak has given rise to conspiracy theories that the virus is man-made and it could possibly be a Chinese bioweapon, originally developed in a military medical research facility outside Shanghai. Likewise, the Chinese government spokesman blamed the US for developing this virus and spreading it in Wuhan in a hostile action to contain the ‘Middle Kingdom’. Thank God, both sides later declared a “ceasefire” in this exchange of accusations. However, even a mention of this possibility demonstrates that the coronavirus could well be an effective biological weapon if any side really wanted to use it. It has already locked us in homes, caused the cruise industry to sink, stocks to plummet, food supply chains to disrupt and global mobility to stop. You can hardly achieve these through a conventional military action alone@.
Ogutcu continues “Even while most of the attention has been focused on the virus’ impact on health policy and the economy — and rightfully so — there are security implications resulting from the spread. We do not seem to have a Plan B for dealing with such outbreaks or the impacts on our military preparedness and operations. Even in NATO’s most recent strategic concept, an official policy document to guide the Alliance to prepare for future threats, there is not even a single mention of the word “pandemic”.
A point which regardless of Cov19 origins is not being missed now by politicians, military interest and the pharmaceutical corporations reviewing the social, political and economic impacts of COVID as they consider their response and the “opportunities” presented by this virus.
Covid 19 a plague whose actual origins proves to be elusive. Another key factor which behind closed doors only continues to fuel political and military paranoia and increase the tension felt between the West and East – as the military industrial complex’s (provided to the highest bidder by Big Pharma) clear connection to those researching pathogens pass by with out comment or public discussion.
