“There is in every man at all times two simultaneous tendencies, one toward God, the other toward Satan.”
– CHARLES BAUDELAIRE (1821-1867) French poet
he COVID-19 coronavirus has rapidly become known worldwide as tested-positive cases have become identified in some 144 nations around the Earth. Understandably, people are asking where the virus originated, and who is ultimately responsible for the transmission of the devastating affliction, which in its worst manifestation suffocates its innocent victims to death.
Often ignored, either intentionally or through ignorance, in media and official government discussions of the coronavirus, which the World Health Organization (WHO) has named a pandemic, is the possibility of COVID-19 being a form of deadly biological warfare weapon.
The powerful 2009 documentary film Anthrax War removes for viewers any remaining ignorance of the biological warfare topic, as the film goes deep into the disturbing facts surrounding the post-9/11 Anthrax attacks in Washington, D.C., along with the still-relevant – perhaps now more relevant and important than ever – history of the development and use of laboratory-produced biological weapons.
Biological weapons legal expert and Illinois Law Professor Francis Boyle was featured in Anthrax War, and said, at the 2009 film’s conclusion – prophetically, given what’s occurring now, worldwide, in March 2020:
“You must understand that the human race stands at a critical turning point in terms of bio-warfare technology. We are at risk now, as I speak. We have to bring this research, development and testing, and the technology itself, under democratic control. We cannot rely upon the government to do this for us, and we certainly cannot rely on the scientists. So it’s going to be up to you, and to me, to stop this; to reduce it; to bring it under control. If we do not, our children could suffer a biological catastrophe.”
“An investigation into the deadly world of germ weapons, Anthrax War begins in New York in the days following 9/11. Anthrax-laced letters, mailed to media and U.S. senators, killed five people and spread fear and panic throughout the nation.
“For filmmaker Bob Coen, who was raised in Rhodesia where the white regime has been accused of unleashing anthrax against the black population, biological weapons have a deep personal meaning. He embarks on a journey that raises troubling questions about the FBI’s investigation of the 21st century’s first act of biological terrorism.
“Coen’s investigation takes him from the U.S. to the U.K. and from the edge of Siberia to the tip of Africa. In a rare interview, Coen confronts “Doctor Death” Wouter Basson, who headed Project Coast, the South African apartheid-era bio-warfare program. Project Coast used germ warfare against select targets within the country’s black population.
“Anthrax War also investigates the mysterious deaths of some of the world’s leading anthrax scientists, including Dr. David Kelly, the UK’s top military microbiologist, the Soviet defector Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, and Dr. Bruce Ivins. The FBI claims – despite the doubts of highly ranked U.S. officials – that Ivins was the only person behind the U.S. anthrax murders.
“In tracing the 2001 bio-terror attacks in the U.S. to the heart of the U.S. bio-defense program, this film raises an alarm. These attacks that helped prepare a country for war have also spawned a multi-billion dollar bio-defense boom. The line between bio-offense and bio-defense is becoming extremely thin.
“Biological weapons research is now being conducted by corporations and private labs without effective government oversight. The international treaty prohibiting the development of offensive bio-weapons may no longer be sufficient to keep the world from drifting towards the unthinkable — biological warfare.
“Anthrax War was written by Harold Crooks and Bob Coen, directed by Bob Coen and produced by Christine LeGoff and Natalie Dubois. Executive producers are Arnie Gelbart, Yves Jeanneau and Eric Nadler. Anthrax War is a Canada-France coproduction produced by Galafilm and TelFrance/Transformer Films for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Société Radio-Canada and ARTE.”
After viewing the film, men and women will easily understand why it is immensely important to share the timely, powerful and ultimately existential message of Anthrax War with friends, family, associates, media and government officials etc. – as far and wide as possible.
The biological catastrophe Professor Boyle warned about – in 2009, and since then up until today – has manifested as an absolutely monstrous and frightening Earthly reality. A thorough investigation has become an absolutely paramount, life-and-death, civilization-sustaining necessity.
