The Coronavirus outbreak has been accompanied by the circulation of many conspiracy theories about the origin of the virus, which most were published, inter alia, in the Arab media and especially in the Palestinian media.
The devastating spread of the deadly Coronavirus across every continent – with the exception of Antarctica – has triggered a conspiracy theory on social media: what if the virus was really a biological weapon?
And more specifically, was it an experimental weapon that accidentally escaped from a laboratory in China?
Or as others contend, is it a weapon surreptitiously introduced to de-stabilize a country with more than 1.4 billion people and described as the world’s second largest economy, after the United States.
However, both narratives are considered false, and probably part of a deliberate disinformation campaign, according to military experts.
The technology did not exist a century ago to manufacture biological agents. It seems the Great War itself was the root cause of the pandemic as soldiers returning home from the bloody battlefields spread the virus far and wide.
War is inherently debilitating and destructive. That is why in the Scriptures Jehovah’s judgments always came in a triplicate set; namely, the sword, famine and pestilence.
The earliest record of germ warfare dates back to the Middle Ages, when, during the Black Death, diseased corpses were catapulted over the wall of the besieged city of Caffa.
But in the more recent decades, scientists around the world have developed all kinds of microbes that could be used in biological warfare. The advantage of germ or viral warfare is that it may not be perceived as an act of war but as a natural phenomenon.
As far as the current Coronavirus, or Covid-19 as it is called by virologists, I have no way of knowing if it is an intentional act or natural; after all, disease epidemics are fairly common. But given the present state of affairs, it is possible, even probable, that the epidemic is intentional.
At the heart of the world’s unrest is the impending collapse of the British Empire; specifically, the money system. London has made it clear that it is at war with Russia and China – and the United States if it dares to ally itself with them.
China’s Belt and Road project is revolutionizing the Third World, which has long been crushed by the colonial masters. Take the ongoing war in Syria, for example. It is well known that NATO has been using Islamic terrorists to destroy the region. Now, Turkey, a NATO member, is threatening to drag the alliance into a war with Russia just to prevent the Belt and Road Initiative from transforming the Middle East.
Like Satan himself, the ruling oligarchs have the rule-or-ruin mentality.
There should be no doubt that men are more than capable of intentionally causing the destruction of their fellow humans on a vast scale. A slaughter of epic proportions is inevitable.
So, yeah, opening up a new front of biological warfare in the heart of China fits into the pattern of the ongoing psychological, financial, cyber, proxy and propaganda wars. It might be intended to serve as a cover for suddenly collapsing the financial system. Whether or not Coronavirus becomes a full-blown pandemic remains to be seen though. It may become dormant and re-emerge later or mutate into something even more virulent.
But this is not 1918. Nations are much better equipped to deal with epidemics now. And there is a jackpot waiting for the first pharmaceutical company that can mass-produce a vaccine.
One important lesson to be taken to heart is how quickly the world can change; how easily masses of people can be panicked.
