Despite the best efforts of the corporate media that functions as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party, it is becoming increasingly obvious to many Americans that we do, in fact, have a crisis at the border. An unprecedented number of illegals are responding to Joe Biden’s “open border” policy and coming north out of Central America. The situation is so bad that Joe has had to call in FEMA to help manage the disaster.
Americans are also slowly waking up to other implications of Joe’s policy. Drug cartels are having a field day. They are making huge amounts of money bringing migrants across, and they are using the swarms of illegals to occupy the Border Patrol and leave them free to flood the nation with dangerous drugs.
No one has any idea how many of the illegals have COVID-19. Even as Joe tells us we might be able to spend the 4th of July with a few friends at a backyard barbecue if all goes well, untold numbers of migrants, untested for the virus, are being released to board buses and travel wherever they want inside the United States. The lunacy of such a policy, especially on the part of an administration obsessed with the existential threat COVID allegedly poses is self-evident.
There are, however, other, perhaps even darker dimensions to Joe’s failed policy. Once you open the border and abandon all control, you have invited disaster. We remain a nation that has many enemies ranging from Islamic terrorist organizations to nation-states like Communist China and North Korea. They search all day every day for ways in which to inflict damage on us.
Can they reasonably be expected to have missed the opportunity now presented to them?
Let’s consider biological weapons. By this point in the process, anyone who is paying attention and not shilling for Beijing has accepted that the point of origin of COVID-19 was one of the bio labs in or near the city of Wuhan in China. The only real question concerns precisely what the Chinese were doing with the virus.
Perhaps the Chinese were conducting legitimate research, and sloppy lab procedures let the virus escape. Perhaps something darker was going on. Maybe the Chinese were deliberately engaged in “gain of function” research with the goal of creating a biological weapon. Maybe, just maybe they succeeded.
Regardless of whether or not you believe in the possibility of COVID-19 being a weapon or not, however, the implications of the worldwide pandemic both for the CCP and for anyone else seeking to strike us are clear. In effect, our enemies have been provided with a blueprint for a future attack. Infect a certain number of individuals with a disease, which is easily communicable. Get them inside the United States. Let nature take its course.
The Chinese interest in biological weapons is not speculative. The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has made no secret of its intent to harness advances in biotechnology in future military operations. In 2015, the president of the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, He Fuchu, argued that biotechnology would become the new “commanding heights” of national defense. Biology is among seven “new domains of warfare” discussed in a 2017 book by Zhang Shibo, a retired general and former president of the National Defense University, who concluded: “Modern biotechnology development is gradually showing strong signs characteristic of an offensive capability,” including the possibility that “specific ethnic genetic attacks” could be employed. The 2017 edition of Science of Military Strategy, a textbook published by the PLA’s National Defense University contained a section about biology as a domain of ‘military struggle,’ specifically mentioning the potential for new kinds of biological warfare.
Last year China and Pakistan were reported to have entered into a “secret three-year deal” to expand potential bio-warfare capabilities, including running several research projects related to the deadly agent anthrax. According to the report, the Wuhan lab was providing “extensive training on the manipulation of pathogens and bio-informatics” to Pakistani scientists “to help Pakistan develop its own virus collection database.
China is, of course, not the only hostile nation with such capabilities. North Korea’s biological weapons are generally considered to be more of a threat than its nuclear weapons. Among the lethal agents in the North’s biological armory is likely to be smallpox, which kills one-third of the people it infects. Pyongyang also has anthrax. In 2015 Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, was photographed touring a biological plant that experts say could be engineered to produce weapons. Multiple North Korean defectors have claimed during questioning that the North tests biological and chemical weapons on political prisoners.
Iran is also believed to have a biological weapons program. Virtually every terrorist group on the planet has at least some degree of interest in acquiring such weapons as well.
Working with such weapons may seem to some difficult and expensive. It need not be. Most of the equipment required can be bought online. A good lab tech can do the work necessary. Particularly, for a group that is willing to infect its own members and use them as delivery vehicles the actual use of the weapon once acquired would be relatively straightforward.
Infect a certain number of “martyrs.” Send them across the border. Tell them to get on a bus, circulate as widely as possible in crowded settings and wait. Make no announcements. Take no responsibility. Give no warning.
A rational government led by someone who was not suffering from dementia and whose policies were not driven first and foremost by ideology would act now to stave off the kinds of threats outlined above and focus our governmental efforts on real risks. Such a government would stop obsessing about exactly how far apart Americans are in the checkout line at the supermarket and who is wearing how many layers of masks and pay a lot more attention to the implications of having effectively erased the concept of national borders.
A rational government, which we currently do not have, would be asking.
What else is coming over the border?
