Your Turn

Do you think there are governments/people who would try and weaponize some type of killer virus? Not like Anthrax or its ilk, but something like you see in the movie Contagion.

You mean Bill Gates ???

Alf Landon said...

no, they fake viruses to get idiots to inject poison

Unknown said...

You mean like China?

J said...

Of course.

What else do you think the few are going to use against the many without endangering the planet's resources?

Tricia13 said...

never thought as much about it as I have with Coronavirus. The whole situation is staggeringly suspect and sad.

No one wants a radioactive cinder or a chemically toxic wasteland.

Nothing would surprise me

Brayson87 said...

Oh this is fun, we can get all cryptic and dark, 12 Monkeys y'all!

MyDogSmiles said...

Fear mongering 101 Tricia. There's nothing to worry about:)

Jeff said...

the US government has been making nasty bugs for decades, so yes.

Freckles said...

Yes

IndieRaga said...

Yes!
There's regular eruption of unknown viruses periodically,never to be seen again!!

Brayson87 said...

Historically though, every technology is weaponized. The main issue is containment.

Huckleberry said...

Oh, boy. This is bound to be a rational and thoughtful discussion thread.

incrediblegecko said...

Absolutely.

Tricia13 said...

@MYDog hope not. Been reading up a lot on it ..hope you are right

norster said...

I think if they tried, there is a very good chance it would backfire badly!

MarxistFreak said...

The Chinese government is doing that right now. Punishing the people for protesting so they unleashed this virus they refuse to contain. A Chinese reporter by the name of Chen Qiushi, has gone missing after reporting negligence and unregulated practices within the virus epicenter.

My parents are tripping hard about it Tricia. I was on the phone with them for 2 hours this weekend trying to calm them down. Just think of the Bird Flu, SARS, Ebola etc...

Aquagirl said...

Of course.

NikkieTutorials has commented on her appearance on Ellen. She said she felt Ellen was very cold and she didn't enjoy the experience of being there, even though she did appreciate the podium to share her story.

Monkeyweather said...

Yep, already been done. China, Gates, and Pirbright Institute IIRC... Oh and then we have Harvard involvement AGAIN. Taking Chinese money, professor arrested, traitors and spies, and the smuggling to China of biological material...

E said...

Killing off everyone so you can rule who's left with your supposed superior intellect? That's the Charles Manson model, and we all know how that turned out--it didn't

SeijnSei said...

Hundreds of thousands of people have died via biological weapons their governments used on them. This is already happening.

Tricia13 said...

MyDog I live so close to a cruise ship port. Its major industry here. But im here for calming words for sure anytime!

Monkeyweather said...

Precisely!
Tricia: how many of these deadly pandemics have killed you so far?
;)

Tricia13 said...

I know. I hope you are both right trust me.

MyDogSmiles said...

I can understand your concern then! My parents are on the water as well. I think you'll be alright :)

Normal hygiene is amazingly efficient at preventing transmission. Unfortunately effective hygiene isn't practiced or understood by most of the populace.

Brayson87 said...

If carriers can be asymptomatic, how would you recognize them? How many surfaces do you touch in a public restroom? Is that person looking at you right now one of the infected, or is it you? 💀...😅

shakey said...

It hasn't happened yet?

WickedBee said...

+1

Unknown said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees it.

Alana said...

@LaurenMaye What about rabies vax for cats and dogs? Is that safe to give them?

Vince said...

Weaponizing a virus would be a great way for a smaller terror sponsoring state to wage war against it's enemies.

This is so true.

It is a bit much, but I am worried about WW3 (ETA: 100 years). Under wartime ethics, unrestricted funds for unethical research is a given. Knowledge will advance at a terrible price.
