A report at Global Research tells us that a Liberian scientist, Dr. Cyril Broderick, is accusing the US of being responsible for the Ebola outbreak in Liberia.
Dr. Broderick wrote the following:
The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March.
It is certainly possible that the United States Department of Defense is behind this outbreak of Ebola, after all there have been reports of US scientists working in Liberia on bio-weapons for years now. The US government has a long and well documented history of using chemical and biological weapons against innocent men, women, and children so there is no reason to expect common human decency to stand in the way of the US Empire weaponizing Ebola and releasing it.
There was a joke that circulated in the run up to the war on Iraq that said that we knew darn well that Saddam had chemical weapons because the CIA had delivery receipts to prove it. One did not have to be an insider to know that the US had been arming Saddam for years and had given him illegal chemical weapons and possibly biological weapons.
Paul Craig Roberts tells us:
A group of 30 doctors and scientists have published their findings on the website of the New England Journal of Medicine that the ebola ravaging West Africa is a new strain of the disease and was not imported from Central Africa. The doctors and scientists’ conclusion is consistent with Dr. Cyril Broderick’s report in the update below that the strain originated in US government biowarfare labs and was injected into humans in Department of Defense field trials that began just weeks prior to the ebola breakout. The US government has a history of using unsuspecting humans for tests. Blacks in Alabama and Guatemalan soldiers and prisoners were infected with syphilis and gonorrhea in order to study the effects of the diseases and to experiment with cures.
Of course most Americans will have trouble believing that their Empire would do such a horrific and immoral thing, but much evidence points to the fact that the US military was actively developing a new terror weapon based on an Ebola strain. But would our people really do such a thing?
Once upon a time when the US was using a small Pacific island to do nuclear testing, it came time to test a hydrogen fusion bomb. Several scientists warned that we did not yet know if the hydrogen bomb would set off a chain reaction with the ocean and thereby turn the earth into a star killing all life. Would the military test in the desert first? Test near a very small lake? Why of course not; they proved that it was safe by taking a chance on the whole world dying. Such is the mind of the American military.
Do we know for sure that the US military is behind the this new and highly dangerous strain of Ebola? Of course not. But the evidence sure does point in that direction. The one thing we do know for sure is that this strain of Ebola is far more communicable than any we have seen before — weaponized as it were. The US had scientists on the ground in Liberia working on Ebola, and now there is a disastrous outbreak. Only the most foolish would say that there is no chance that the US is behind it.
Paul Craig Roberts:
University of Illinois law professor Francis Boyle, an expert of the perfidies of the US government, reminds us that Sierra Leone and Liberia, the countries most affected by the ebola outbreak, are two West African countries that host US biological warfare laboratories. Professor Boyle asks how the disease, which is mainly associated with equatorial Congo reached West Africa thousands of kilometers away.
This is just one more example of the fact that governments are your enemy and not your friend and protector. The US Empire is a gang of criminals writ large as Murray Rothbard would say.
