Dengue Mosquitoes are being used as a biological weapon!

By Shenali Waduge

Not many would think or accept that the AIDS virus was a man-made creation. Similarly, the swine flu, anthrax and various other pandemic flu have their origins in laboratories meaning they have been created by man.

We are slowly witnessing another epidemic of sorts in the dengue fever which causes flu-like symptoms but eventually leads to death if not treated in time. Unfortunately, there is no real treatment for dengue. When other flu and virus’s have been created it should come as no surprise to treat dengue as a biowar weapon as well. Whether it is a man-made virus or not, dengue has become a threat to people around the world.

To justify the reasoning that dengue is more than just a natural virus a look at declassified documents is the best option. Declassified documents in 1956 and 1958 reveal that the US army let loose swarms of specially bred mosquitoes in Savannah, Georgia and Avon Park, Florida (Carver Village was exclusively Black populated) to check whether these insects could be used as a biological weapon. The residents suffered from fevers, bronchitis, typhoid, encephalitis, stillbirths and even death. The Aedes Aegypti type is a perfect carrier of dengue fever. Is it a surprise that Cuba accuses US of targeting tobacco crops using blue mold, sugar cane crops using cane smut, livestock using African swine fever and Cuban population through dengue fever. In Nicaragua too in 1985 dengue fever struck affecting half of Managua and not surprisingly it was the first epidemic in the country.

Ironically, the US in 1972 signed the Biological Weapons Convention and President Nixon had ordered Pentagon to stop producing biological weapons in 1969 – obviously the Presidential directive was not followed. Despite signing the Convention the US or rather its intelligence has been toying with different types of bio-chemical “weaponry” – Ebola, Sarin VX nerve gas, Mandrax, deadly lethal injection drugs – scoline and tubarine, paratyphoid, salmonella, cholera, anthrax, smallpox, highly potent CR tear gas and dengue fever.

The ugly truth is that the powerful Governments of the world are all connected with global multinational companies and invisible people who fund the atrocities that take place around the world. Every time a health epidemic arises it means big business for the world’s pharmaceutical companies – they get to profit from the drugs/vaccines/injections etc used to counter the epidemic. It’s an ugly circle and not many would like to reveal the truth of how things actually work.

A UK lab (Oxitec) has released large numbers of genetically modified mosquitoes to combat dengue fever In 2009, the first set of genetically modified mosquitoes were released on Grand Cayman, an island in the Caribbean. In 2010, 3million genetically modified mosquitoes were released. The catch is that the release was done in secret. This certainly raises the question as to what right scientists have to release creatures into the air that feed upon humans. The GM-mosquitoes have already been released in Malaysia, Brazil, Panama, Singapore, India, Thailand and Vietnam.

But concerns have been raised as to how the Living Modified Organism has been created, about the sources of the molecular marker and the “lethal” gene that will make the offspring of the LMO and female Aedes aegypti die? The concerns also cover the environmental and health consequences arising from horizontal gene transfer as well as concerns related to fogging after the release which means spraying communities and environment with poisonous pesticides which is likely to result in various health hazards for humans.

What is never answered is that the genetically modified female mosquito can still bite humans which means that the proteins meant to kill their own larvae might get injected to human bodies and what would that mean to the human organism?

Returning to the involvement of US in biological war-fare and low-tech experiments, the following list shows exactly what the US has been up to.

The US has a history of experimenting with humans.

1931 – Humans infected with cancer cells as well as radiation exposure experiments on US soldiers and civilian patients in hospitals.

1932 – Tuskegee Syphilis Study on 200 black men diagnosed with syphilis and used as guinea pigs.

1935 – Pellagra incident where millions of blacks died from Pellagra over 2 decades though US public health service director admits they knew that Pallegra was caused by niacin deficiency.

– Prisoners in Chicago infected with malaria to study effects of experimental drugs to combat disease.

1942 – Chemical Warfare – Mustard gas experiments on 4000 servicemen and Seventh Day Adventists made human guinea pigs

1943 – US commences biological weapons at Fort Detrick, MD

1944 – US Navy uses humans to test gas masks and clothing exposing to mustard gas and lewisite.

1945 – Project Paperclip. Nazi scientists given immunity to work on US secret projects.

1945 – Program F – study on health effects of fluoride, a key chemical component in atomic bomb production. Fluoride causes adverse effects to central nervous system.

1947 – US Atomic Energy Commission issues secret document (07075001) that it will administer intravenous doses of radioactive substances to humans.

1950 – To determine how susceptible a US city would be to biological attacks, US Navy sprays cloud of bacteria from ships over San Francisco. Residents become ill with pneumonia-like symptoms.

1951 to 1969 – Dept of Defense begins open air tests using disease-producing bacteria and viruses.

1953 – US military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over Winnipeg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, Maryland, Virginia to see how efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.

1953 – Joint efforts on thousands in New York and San Francisco exposed to airborne germs – Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii.

1953 – Project Mkultra, a 11 year research to test drugs and biological agents to be used for mind control and behavior modification.

1955 – Experiment to test ability to infect humans with biological agents by releasing bacteria over Tampa Bay, Florida

1956– US military releases mosquitoes infected with Yellow Fever over Savannah, Georgia and Avon Park, Florida.

1960 – Field testing of LSD authorized in Europe and Far East

1965 – Project MKSearch to manipulate behavior through use of mind-altering drugs

1965 – Prisoners in Philadelphia are subject to dioxin (toxic chemical component of Agent Orange used in Vietnam). Agent Orange is a carcinogen.

1966 – Project MKOften tests toxicological effects of drugs on humans and animals

1968 – Experiments on poisoning drinking water by injecting chemicals into water supply

1969 – Dept of Defense requests $10m from Congress to develop a synthetic biological agent that has no natural immunity.

1970 – Funding is given. Speculation that molecular biology techniques were used to produce AIDS-like retroviruses.

1975 – Fort Detricks Center for Biological Warfare Research renamed Fredrick Cancer Research Facility. Develops cancer-causing viruses. They also create a virus named HTLV (Human T-cell Leukemia virus)

1981 – First AIDS cases confirmed in homosexual men in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, speculations that AIDS may have been introduced via Hepatitis B vaccine.

1981 Science journal reveals similarity in HTLV and VISNA a fatal sheep virus

1986 – National Academy of Sciences reveal HIV and VISNA share all structural elements and that VISNA and HTLV are identical and likely to have been used to produce retrovirus that have no natural immunity.

1986 – Report to Congress reveals that biological agents (modified viruses, toxins, agents etc) have been altered through genetic engineering to change immunological character and prevent treatment by all existing vaccines.

1987 – US Dept of Defense admits to operating 127 research facilities and universities developing biological agents though it has signed a treating banning such research.

1900 – Over 1500 black and Hispanic babies (6month) in Los Angeles given “experimental” measles vaccine (not licensed) in the US and parents are not informed of the experiment.

1994 – “gene tracking” technique discovers that Desert Storm veterans are infected with Mycoplasma incognitus.

1994 – Senator John. D. Rockefeller issues report that for over 50years the Dept of Defense has used thousands of military personnel as human experiments/intentional exposure to dangerous substances (mustard and nerve gas, ionizing radiation, psychochemicals, hallucinogens…) during the Gulf War.

1996 – Dept of Defense admits that Desert Storm soldiers were exposed to chemical agents.

1997 – 88members of US Congress demand investigation into bio-weapons use and Gulf War Syndrome.

With such a colorful record of experimenting with bio-chemicals the US used the excuse of WMD to invade Iraq and continues to accuse countries when its own record should make the US ashamed of its actions.

We should not be surprised or shrug aside the possibility that insects can be used as weapons to spread terror and panic. Therefore dengue or aedes aegypti is something to be truly concerned about. It affects 2.5billion people globally.

Dengue Facts:

Dengue Fever

Caused by 1 of 4 viruses (DENV 1, DENV 2, DENV 3, DENV 4) transmitted to humans via Aedes aegypti mosquito. Dengue is spread by the bite of an infected female mosquito Aedes aegypti. The mosquito gets the virus by biting the infected persons. Aedes mosquitoes are easily identified by theblack and white stripes found on their bodies and legs. Once the mosquito bites an individual who has Dengue, the mosquito itself becomes infected and will infect other people by its subsequent bites.

Symptoms

High Fever lasting 5-7days, body aches, pain behind eyes, rash, nausea, vomiting (one or all)

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF)

Is a severe form of dengue infection. Patient may bleed from nose, gums, skin. If patient has black stool it indicates bleeding in gastro intestinal tracts and this is serious.

What is the treatment for dengue?

There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. Persons who think they have dengue should use analgesics (pain relievers) with acetaminophen and avoid those containing aspirin. They should also rest, drink plenty of fluids, and consult a physician. If they develop vomiting and severe abdominal pain in the first 24 hours after the fever declines, they should go immediately to the hospital for evaluation.

Prevention

• Use mosquito repellants that contains DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535. Read labels carefully.

• Cover skin with appropriate clothing.

• Remove standing water/empty and clean all water holding containers. Mosquitos transmitting dengue lay eggs in vegetation or containers around home. Eggs develop into flying mosquitos within a week

• Remove water from old tires, buckets, garbage cans – anything that collects water. Keep lids/covers on to prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs.

• Empty birdbaths, bowls, plant pots at least once a week.

Home Remedy for dengue fever.

Orange juice has been found effective during dengue fever, as it helps in digest and increases urinary output. It also promotes antibodies for quick healing and recovery. It provides energy and vitamins.

Squeeze and pound two pieces of raw papaya leaves with a filter cloth (you can get only one tablespoon per leaf). A patient could take two tablespoon per serving daily. Note, do not boil, cook or rinse it with hot water. This will help control dengue fever.

Additional Reading:

• James Bamford’s book on the National Security Agency, Body of Secrets

• In Biological Warfare in the 21st Century, Malcolm Dando refers to the U.S. bio-attacks against Cuba

We will never know what goes on in secret labs under the name of R&D. What we do know is that as humans we end up being guinea pigs for which we pay to be cured and that cure ends up worse than the ailment. All that’s left for us to do really is to use our commonsense and live close to nature and as far as possible use natural elements.

Something that the males will be happy to read…..Males do not bite or spread disease (in fact males cannot bite!).
