Doug Casey on How Technology and Biological Warfare Will Impact How World War 3 Will Be Fought

For those bent on subjugation and conquest, biological warfare is an attractive option. From Doug Casey at internationalman.com:

International Man: With all the hysteria surrounding the coronavirus, there has been a renewed discussion on biological warfare.

How likely will some form of biological warfare happen in the near future? What could the scenario look like?

Doug Casey: It’s very likely—in fact, inevitable. There are many advantages to biological warfare over conventional warfare.

First, it doesn’t destroy materials. That’s a huge plus. What’s the point of conquering a country if all you have to show for it is a smoking radioactive ruin? That was the major advantage of the neutron bomb, of course, but bioweapons will essentially make atomic weapons obsolescent.

Second, bioweapons can be structured to attack only certain racial groups. If the US is at war with China, they could see that as an advantage. Of course, two can play that game. In any event, you can immunize your own population, or at least the military and “essential” workers, so you’re not hurt too badly.

Third, bioweapons are very cheap and easy to fabricate. If someone has access to a good high school chemistry lab, the person’s in business. There’s no need for an expensive and tricky U-235 or, for that matter, any of the junk toys the Pentagon spends hundreds of billions on.

No Weapon Left Behind: The American Hybrid War on China, by Pepe Escobar

The US government is doing everything it can to kick the Chinese while they’re down. From Pepe Escobar at strategic-culture.org:

The New Silk Roads – or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) – were launched by President Xi Jinping in 2013, first in Central Asia (Nur-Sultan) and then Southeast Asia (Jakarta).

One year later, the Chinese economy overtook the U.S. on a PPP basis. Inexorably, year after year since the start of the millennium, the U.S. share of the global economy shrinks while China’s increases.

China is already the key hub of the global economy and the leading trade partner of nearly 130 nations.

While the U.S. economy is hollowed out, and the casino financing of the U.S. government – repo markets and all – reads as a dystopian nightmare, the civilization-state steps ahead in myriad areas of technological research, not least because of Made in China 2025.

China largely beats the U.S. on patent filings and produces at least 8 times as many STEM graduates a year than the U.S., earning the status of top contributor to global science.
