Did The USA Create Bird Flu?

In 2013 China was hit by a terrifying threat: a new deadly strain of bird flu Over a quarter of the 135 people who contracted the illness died excruciating deaths

Over the last four years, at least 1500 have been infected by this deadly disease, which kills a third of its victims Chinese Air Force Colonel Dai Xu claims that the timing of the outbreak is highly suspicious He says the disease was artificially created by the United States government and that the current outbreak is a political plot to destabilise China Xu says it is part of a “US

conspiracy to sow panic in the world’s most populous nation” and stop it from gaining more power on the world stage Did The US Invent Bird Flu? Avian flu is a deadly, highly pathogenic virus transmitted to humans from close contact with birds, their mucus or their feces In China the infection often spreads through live bird markets, contaminated waters, or transporting birds for slaughter

It has no known cure Unusually, the H7N9 strain has only ever been found in China The disease has spread violently since 2013 Reuters estimates it has cost the Chinese economy $65 billion so far

University of Hong Kong virologist Guan Yi calls the virus “the largest pandemic threat [to China] in the last 100 years” Though official reports claim that the disease evolved organically, Colonel Xu believes it is an American biological weapon intended to stop China’s rise Indeed, as the world’s second largest economy China is a formidable global player As finance writer Mike Patton writes, it is almost certain that within the next two years, “China’s economy will become more significant than America’s” In 2013 Xu published his claims of an American conspiracy online

He said, “As for this recent bird flu fad, China’s top government departments shouldn’t talk it up, otherwise it will be just like SARS in 2003!” “At the time, the US was fighting Iraq and feared China might take advantage of the situation, so it deployed a bio-psychological weapon against China The country was thrown into turmoil, just as the US

had hoped Now, the US is trying the same old trick China should take a lesson from before and respond calmly

” The blog was shared over 30,000 times The United States has been involved in Middle Eastern conflicts since 2001 The country has spent $6 trillion on fighting wars in the region since then As its resources deplete in the Middle East, China may increasingly be seen as a threat to US

influence China continues to suffer an extraordinary number of bird flu cases In February 2017 journalists Justin Heifetz and Meera Senthilingam noted that at least 6 Chinese provinces reported human cases of the virus since the start of the year Between September 2016 and January 2017 at least 460 new cases of the virus were reported to Chinese health authorities, with 70 fatalities World Health Organization Director General Dr

Margaret Chan says that around 39% of the cases China has suffered in the last four years have been fatal If Xu is right, it would not be the first time America has infected populations to weaken its rivals Between 1961 and 1971 the US unleashed its secret biological warfare programme Operation Ranch Hand on Vietnam

While its official goal was to destroy the country’s agriculture and food supply with the toxic chemical “Agent Orange”, the real impact was far bloodier Around a quarter of the 4 million people exposed to the chemical ended up with serious health issues, including deformities and terminal illnesses such as leukemia and Hodgkin’s lymphoma The US has even experimented with weaponising disease against their own people

In 1950 the government simulated a biological attack over San Francisco by secretly spraying the harmful bacteria Serratia marcescens over the city Professor Leonard Cole, Director of the Terror Medicine and Security Program at Rutgers University believes this was one of the largest human experiments in history He says “nearly every one of the 800,000 people in San Francisco exposed to the cloud at normal breathing rate (10 liters per minute) inhaled 5,000 or more particles per minute during the several hours that they remained airborne” Several San Franciscans developed rare and dangerous infections, and at least one person died Cole believes the experiment probably caused several deaths that remain a mystery to this day

However, scientific research has shown that modern bird flu strains originated in migratory waterfowl in 1994 Infectious Disease expert Professor Vijaykrishna Dhanasekaran has shown that China has taken the worst hit because it has unusually “large and frequently connected populations of domestic birds” The H7N9 strain only exists within China, but other deadly strains have a much more global reach The H5N1 strain has killed in countries the US

has no interest in, including Myanmar, Bangladesh, Djibouti and Cambodia None of these are vying to take America’s place on the world Indeed, the randomness of these outbreaks makes it unlikely that bird flu originated as a targeted biological weapon International virology experts also say science is not yet advanced enough to artificially create bird flu Viruses are just too complex

Director of the Russian Influenza Research Institute Oleg Kiselyov said that “[biology] has not advanced enough to create such a genetic machine” Critically, this is backed up by recent studies into the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic, which claimed 40 million lives in the early twentieth century Dr Jeffrey Taubenberger is the first person to sequence this twentieth century outbreak His findings revealed that it was actually an early form of bird flu Far from being a new phenomenon, then, the virus has wrought havoc for almost a century

Between 1943 and 1973 America’s Biological Weapon Programme gruesomely weaponized diseases UN laws forced it to close down, but there is no knowing whether it still covertly operates, contaminating and killing foreign populations But in this case, scientific evidence suggests the devastating H7N9 virus mutated naturally from existing strains
