The Pentagon is developing swarms of insects, in order to transport genetically modified infectious viruses, so it can attack the agricultural crops of other countries and destroy its food production.
This is not a science-fiction scenario, but a plan that is actually being prepared by DARPA, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
Five scientists from one French and two German universities have revealed this information in Science, one of the world’s most prestigious scientific revues.
They cast serious doubt on the idea that DARPA’s research, entitled « Insect allies », was intended only for the use declared by the Agency – the protection of US agriculture against pathogens by using insects as the vectors of genetically modified infectious viruses.
These viruses are transmitted to plants and modify their chromosomes. This capacity – as declared by the five scientists – appears to be « very limited ».
However, within the scientific milieu, the program is « widely perceived as an effort to develop biological agents for hostile purposes and their means of delivery », in other words « a new form of biological weapon.
This violates the Biological Weapons Convention, which came into effect in 1975, but which has remained inactive mainly due to the refusal of the USA to accept inspections of their own laboratories.
The five scientists specify that « easy simplifications could be used to generate a new class of biological weapons, weapons that would be extremely transmissible to susceptible crop species due to insect dispersion as the means of delivery ».
This scenario of an attack on agricultural cultures in Russia, China and other countries, led by the Pentagon with swarms of insects transporting the virus, is not a science-fiction fable. DARPA’s program is not the only one to use insects as a weapon of war.
We know that during the Cold War, in the laboratories of the USA and other nations, research on bacteria and viruses was carried out – when these agents are spread by insects (lice, flies, ticks), they can trigger epidemics in the enemy nation.
With the techniques available today, it is possible to produce new types of pathogens, spread by insects, for which the targeted population would have no defense.
