Bio-Warfare in Iranian Plans

Iran's biotech war

Iran will hold general elections in just 11 days.  Will the results change the relationship between the Theocratic country and the United States?  And will Iran’s destructive plans such as the use of bio-warfare cease production?

General Gholamreza Jalali is the head of Iran’s Passive Defense Organization.  He spoke to Asriran, the Islamic Republic,s media outlet.  He spoke of the strategic importance of biological weapons.

“Biological viruses are extremely clever and have the capability to distinguish their environment. These viruses can only be recognized in labs,” he said, stressing that these agents are easily hidden in the environment and can cause widespread epidemics.

Jalali said that viruses, parasites, botanical poisons and animal poisons are elements that can be used in biological warfare.

“The environmental threats include humans, domesticated animals, poultry, environment, natural resources, food industry and drinking water,” he said, identifying seven ways a biological agent could strike.

The United Nations’ Biological Weapons Convention has banned the development and stockpiling of biological weapon since 1975.  But according to a source inside the Revolutionary Guard, Iran has several facilities in different locations which are developing weapons to be used for bio-warfare.

WND issued an exclusive report in December and January, and claimed inside sources reported that Iranian scientists, with Russian and North Korean assistance, had already developed eight agents.

Eight agents; anthrax, encephalitis (the blueprint of this virus, Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, was provided by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in an agreement two years ago with the Islamic regime), yellow rain (developed with the help of North Korea), SARS, Ebola, cholera, smallpox and plague, are all available to Iran’s efforts to institute bio-warfare.

With the assistance of North Korea, a new strain of smallpox has been developed and is vaccine resistant.

Dr. Margaret Chan, head of the World Health Organization, is reporting a new virus which has been named MERS.  Its origins are unknown, but it was discovered in the Mid-East, and has been transported by human carriers to other countries.  Of the 49 cases discovered at the moment, 27 have died.  Dr. Chan believes it “could be a threat to the entire world.”

“We do not know where the virus hides in nature,” she said. “We do not know how people are getting infected. Until we answer these questions, we are empty-handed when it comes to prevention. These are alarm bells. And we must respond.”

Brigadier General Mohammadreza Naghdi, the head of the Basij paramilitary forces, said that his country is at war with America.  He claims that the economy of the United States is deteriorating, and that “America’s military budget has been reduced and they don’t have the means for battle.”

In another interview Naghdi that there are three conditions America must fulfill to survive, and improve relations with the Islamic nation:  Remove all of its bases from the region, remove its support of the “Zionist regime” (Israel) and ask for forgiveness for all of “its crimes against humanity.”

It is well known that Iran approached Russian scientists who in the past developed extensive biological weaponry.

“Outside assistance is both important and difficult to prevent, given the dual-use nature of the materials and equipment being sought,” the CIA said in its report back then on Iran and its biological weapons program.

Inside sources believe that Iranian scientists have already developed some “gems,” and are in the planning stages of possible ways to institute their use.  Bio-warfare is definitely a part of Iran’s future plans.
