Anthrax




Is the World in Danger of A chemical Warfare?
Hell is a place on earth and it is located 2300 miles south of Moscow in the middle of the Aral Sea. Its name is Vokroshdeniye Island. In English this means Renaissance Island. Renaissance Island was a Soviet Union biochemical test sight before its fall in 1990. They where testing such things as small pox, the plague, and most importantly anthrax. The Islands main mission was to develop a strain of the diseases that could be put into the warheads of SS-18 an intercontinental bolistic missile, to be pointed at American cities. The thought targets are New York, Seattle, Chicago, and Boston. Renaissance Island officials did open air experiments such as, sending monkeys out downwind of the lab and releasing bombs of the chemicals to see if they would kill the monkeys, and they did. In fact thousands of animals were said to have died on the island. The germs were engineered to be antibiotic resistant thus the effects are extremely life threatening. Alibek the former chief at Renaissance Island said, ¡§ people can die during a conversation for example, they start bleeding through the noose and mouth, then they die.¡¨ At the end of the cold war America and the British put pressure on the Soviets, mainly their leader of the time Mikhail Gorbachey, to tell them what was going on. He wouldn¡¦t and continued on with the testing, however when evidence was shown to him that the U.S. and Britain knew for sure that they were doing those things, Gorbachey ordered the chemicals to be buried. The put the anthrax into 11 sand pits, leaving the chemicals to be free and living underground. U.S. officials say that to this day there are still living spores underground.
The worst thing about it is that the Aral Sea is shrinking. It is said to be about waist deep. The Island is only 2 miles away from civilization, thus allowing animals and weather conditions to bring the disease to populated land. Not only that, but winds are causing these air born diseases to reach land. People on the shore are getting sick there is said to be high rates of tuberculosis, which is extremely drug resistant. There are anemia problems in women as well as an unexplained high rate of cancers. A nine-year-old bot died of the plague and there were two cases of anthrax. It is very scary to think what went on at Renaissance Island and is even scarier to know that it is still an unprotected hazard.
The Biochemical warfare is the reason for the military vaccinations. The thing that I wonder about is why is just our military being vaccinated? At the same time however I am glad that it is. Let me explain. The vaccination is said by chemists who have been studying anthrax for decades, how have much more severe the affects are then our government is letting on to. First of all they are vaccination approximately 2.4 million military personal. The scary part is that with this mass vaccination the government is not taking into consideration long-term effects side effects, the differences in peoples immune systems, or the fact that other countries could just alter the strain of anthrax so that the vaccine dose not even work. Secondly from 1990 to 1991 215 reports of adverse effects of the vaccine were reported. Within this group 5 people where hospitalized for severe skin reaction on the sight of the injection. Another contracted aseptic meningitis, (an inflammation of the meanings, the thin membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord) two people contracted Guillian Barre syndrome (a disease that effects the muscles leading to weakness and possible paralization, and sensation problems). One person contracted bio-polar disorder, and another contracted lupus, (leads to problems with the joints, skin, kidney, brain, lug, heart and gastrointestinal tract) and still has not recovered. Is the pentagon telling military personnel about this? No way! In a study at Fort Detrick scientists subjected guinea pigs to fist the anthrax vaccination and then to anthrax itself. 9 out of the 27 strains tested killed 50% of the pigs. In another test 26 out of the 33 strains tested killed 50% of the pigs. Those are not promising figures.
