Theories about HIV/Aids are so numerous but one thing strange about
these theories is that trade unionists especially with Cosatu,
left-leaning civil society formations, governments and liberal
formations often share the pharmaceutical sponsored and mainstream media
compliant perspective which ultimtely promotes the use of condoms and
anti-retrovirals. Costa Gazi with his AZT including dominant sections
within the party especially at the time of Mbeki appear to have
something in common with this group. But if one where to examine
literature and debates among Pan-Africanists in the US and the world
over one sees something different where the disease is seen as a western
imperialist genocidal programme against Africans, and nations in the
south ("third world"). Ironically, independent western medical experts,
who have undertaken numerous studies on this pandemic and found
themselves in conflict with especially the US administration because of
their research findings which came to be merely reduced into dissident
fringe scientists, seem to had reinforced the Pan-Africanist
denunciative posture against western Aryan conception of medicine,
treatment and cure. Interestingly though, socialist of different hues
seem to had followed the orthodox ARV stance although like unions tended
to clamour for a dispensation of universal access to affordable health
and medicine. What I'm not happy about the Pan-Africanist position as of
now is the racialisation of this health question, presented as a kind of
western bio-logical warfare to wipe out the inferior black races.
Pan-Africanists who advance a socialist analysis who believe that
western imperialists depend on cheap labour of Africans which is the
bedrock of the western economies could find no logic in this, as would
be inclined to dismiss it as mass hysteria. The history of mass chattel
slavery of the phase that preceded contemporary capitalism,
mercantilism, inspite of the genocidal proportions of this kind of
economic exploitation lays a theoretical basis of the kind of analysis
that must go into understanding HIV/Aids phenomenon in the era of
neo-colonialism and global capitalism. What basic assumptions can we
make when the issue of the global labour division of the world into
oppressor nations and oppressed nations as well as exploiter classes and
exploited classes are concerned. My view is that simple genocidal acts
fall within a Malthusian population control programme which sees an
exponential increase in world population while economic resources are
becoming scarcer. Relations between imperialists and Africa are dictated
by the economic logic of intensifying the exploitation of the continent
in terms of minerals, labour and markets. But when these assumptions are
stretched further in terms of the underlying capitalist profit motive,
provision of services, in this instance health becomes dictated by the
economies of scale of supply and demand, hence pharmaceuticals usurp
government health policies, direct health services in terms of their
drive for superprofits and ultimately sponsor and covertly engineer
programmes and state interventions that increases the number of people
at risk of dying through a host of pandemics. Health care measures
assume a kind of dichotomy, on the one hand exposing vast numbers of
people to common and deadly diseases yet contributing to that with
making available medicines that is both deadly in its effects yet
preventive and curative in theory. Mine is that we should not lose sight
of the way imperialism has ordered the world and continues to intensify
the plunder and dominance of our economies.

Designer Diseases: AIDS as Biological & Psychological Warfare

AIDS as Biological & Psychological Warfare
By Waves Forrest

Despite repeated denials from Defense Department officials, allegations
persist that AIDS is a genetically altered virus, which has been
deliberately released to wipe out homosexuals and/or non-whites in the
U.S. and reduce populations in third world countries. 

At first glance it seems like the epitome of paranoia to accuse the
military of conspiring to exterminate citizens of their own country, and
even some of their own troops. However, the vast majority of military
personnel could be completely unaware of such a plot in their midst,
while a relative handful of traitors in key positions could conduct it
under cover of classified operations. And the circumstantial evidence is
actually quite compelling, that the AIDS virus
<>  was artificially
engineered, and planted in several different locations at about the same
time through vaccination programs, and possibly blood bank

At a House Appropriations hearing in 1969, the Defense Department's
Biological Warfare (BW) division requested funds to develop through
gene-splicing a new disease that would both resist and break down a
victim's immune system. "Within the next 5 to 10 years it would probably
be possible to make a new infective micro-organism which could differ in
certain important respects from any known disease-causing organisms.
Most important of these is that it might be refractory to the
immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain
our relative freedom from infectious diseases." (See - A Higher Form of
Killing: The Secret Story of Chemical and Biological Warfare by R.
Harris and J. Paxman, p 266, Hill and Wang, pubs.) The funds were

AIDS appeared within the requested time frame, and has the exact
characteristics specified. 

In 1972, the World Health Organization published a similar proposal: "An
attempt should be made to ascertain whether viruses can in fact exert
selective effects on immune function, e.g., by ...affecting T cell
function as opposed to B cell function. The possibility should also be
looked into that the immune response to the virus itself may be impaired
if the infecting virus damages more or less selectively the cells
responding to the viral antigens." (Bulletin of the W.H.O., vol. 47, p
257- 274.) This is a clinical description of the function of the AIDS

The incidence of AIDS infections in Africa coincides exactly with the
locations of the W.H.O. smallpox vaccination program in the mid-1970's
(London Times, May 11, 1987). Some 14,000 Haitians then on UN secondment
to Central Africa were also vaccinated in this campaign. Personnel
actually conducting the vaccinations may have been completely unaware
that the vaccine was anything other than what they were told. 

A striking feature of AIDS is that it's ethno-selective. The rate of
infection is twice as high among Blacks, Latinos and Native Americans as
among whites, with death coming two to three times as swiftly. And over
80% of the children with AIDS and 90% of infants born with it are among
these minorities. "Ethnic weapons" that would strike certain racial
groups more heavily than others have been a long-standing U.S. Army BW
objective. (Harris and Paxman, p 265) 

Under the current U.S. administration biological warfare research
spending has increased 500 percent, primarily in the area of genetic
engineering of new disease organisms. 

The "discovery" of the AIDS virus (HTLV3) was announced by Dr. Robert
Gallo at the National Cancer Institute, which is on the grounds of Fort
Detrick, Maryland, a primary U.S. Army biological warfare research
facility. Actually, the AIDS virus looks and acts much more like a cross
between a bovine leukemia virus and a sheep visna (brain-rot) virus,
cultured in a human cell culture, than any virus of the HTLV group. 

The closest thing in this case to a "smoking test tube" so far is the
AIDS virus itself. If it was possible for such a monstrosity to occur
naturally it would have done so ages ago and decimated mankind at that
time. Some other life form would presently be in control of this planet
(assuming that is not already the case). 

The Hepatitis <>  B
vaccine study in 1978 appears to have been the initial means of planting
the infection in New York City. The test protocol specified
non-monogamous males only, and homosexuals received a different vaccine
from heterosexuals. At least 25-50% of the first reported New York AIDS
cases in 1981 had received the Hepatitis B test vaccine in 1978. By
1984, 64% of the vaccine recipients had AIDS, and the figures on the
current infection rate for the participants of that study are held by
the U.S. Department of Justice, and "unavailable." 

The AIDS epidemic emerged full-blown in the three U.S. cities with
"organized gay communities" before being reported elsewhere, including
Haiti or Africa, so it is epidemiologically impossible for either of
those countries to be the origin point for the U.S. infections. 

Another indication AIDS had multiple origin points is that the 14-month
doubling time of the disease cannot nearly account for the current
number of cases if we assume only a small number of initial infections
starting in the late 1970s. 

Before dismissing the possibility that a U.S. Army BW facility would
participate in genocide, bear in mind that hundreds of top Nazis were
imported into key positions in the U.S. military- intelligence
establishment following WW II. U.S. military priorities were then
re-oriented from defeating Nazis to "defeating" communism at any cost,
and strengthening military control of economic and foreign policy
decisions (See - Project Paperclip by Clarence Lasby, Atheneum 214, NY,
and Gehlen: Spy of the Century by E.H. Cookridge, Random House.) There's
no proof those Nazis ever gave up their long-term goals of conquest and
genocide, just because they changed countries. Fascism was and is an
international phenomenon. 

It's not as if this was total reversal of previous U.S. military policy,
however. Hitler claimed to have gotten his inspiration for the "final
solution" from the extermination of Native Americans in the U.S. For
that matter the first example of germ warfare in the U.S. was in 1763
when some of the European colonists gave friendly Indians a number of
blankets that had been infected with smallpox, causing many deaths. 

One indication of the actual U.S. military priorities regarding BW was
the importation of the entire Japanese germ warfare unit (#731)
following WW II. These people killed over 3000 POWs, including many
Americans, in a variety of grisly experiments, yet they were granted
complete amnesty and given American military positions in exchange for
sharing their research findings with their U.S. Army counterparts. 

Consider also the callous attitude displayed by top military officials
toward veterans suffering from the after-effects of exposure to Agent
Orange and radiation from nuclear weapons tests. 

In fact, since the end of WW II over 200 experimental BW tests have been
conducted on civilians and military personnel in the U.S. One example
was the test spraying from Sept. 20-26, 1950 of bacillus globigi and
syraceus maracezens over 117 square miles of the San Francisco area,
causing pneumonia <>
-like infections in many of the residents. The family of one elderly man
who died in the test sued the government, but lost. To this day,
syraceus is a leading cause of death among the elderly in the San
Francisco area. Another case was the joint Army-CIA BW test in 1955,
still classified, in which an undisclosed bacteria was released in the
Tampa Bay region of Florida, causing a dramatic increase in whooping
cough infections, including twelve deaths. A third example was the July
7-10, 1966 release of bacteria throughout the New York subway system,
conducted by the U.S. Army's Special Operations Division. Due to the
vast number of people exposed it would virtually impossible to identify,
let alone prove, and specific health problems resulting directly from
this test. 

Despite the loyalty of the vast majority of U.S. military personnel
toward their country, there are clearly some military officials who have
very different intentions, and they occupy high enough positions to
impose their priorities on military programs and get away with it, so

The first detailed charges regarding AIDS as a BW weapon were published
in the Patriot newspaper in New Delhi, India, on July 4, 1984. It is
hard to say where the investigations of this story in the Indian press
might have led, if they had not been sidetracked by two major domestic
disasters shortly thereafter: the assassination of Indira Gandhi on Oct.
31 and the Bhopal Union Carbide plant "accident" that killed several
thousand and injured over 200,000 on Dec. 3. 

The Soviet press picked up the story on October 1985, making it easy for
U.S. Defense Department spokesmen to dismiss the charges as "Soviet
propaganda," even though many other countries carried it. The Soviets
recently retracted the charges, in the new spirit of US-USSR

A variation on the AIDS-BW theory that is popular in far-right
publications is that AIDS was developed in Soviet laboratories for use
against the U.S. An obvious problem with this idea is that the victims
of choice of a Soviet BW attack would be anti- communists, not
minorities or homosexuals, who are generally more left-wing. The people
at greatest risk from AIDS in the U.S. are in fact the very elements
most disliked by arch-conservatives. In any case, it is simplistic to
assume that one country, U.S. or USSR, is conducting this campaign
against one another. Although concealed in apparent conflicts between
nations, the real culprits are multi-national fascists on both "sides"
still bent on massive population reductions and global domination. 

Other motives include the old "divide and conquer" principle; AIDS is
inspiring fear and mistrust between people, and scaring them away from
relating to each other at the basic level of sexuality. It is acting as
a barrier to the attempted cultural resurgence toward peace, love and
cooperation. Of high school students surveyed last year as to which
decade they'd most like to have grown up in, 90% chose the 60's. The
last thing pro-war fascists want is another "love generation,"
especially if it is more politically sophisticated than the last one. 

Apparently, homosexuals were an initial target in the U.S. because their
sexual practices would help in the rapid spread of the disease, and
because it was correctly assumed that very few non-homosexual citizens
would pay much attention during the early years of the epidemic. Also,
the stigma of a "homosexual disease" would interfere with rational
analysis and discussion of AIDS. Bear in mind that homosexuals were
among the first to be exterminated in Nazi Germany, before Jews or other
minorities, so fewer citizens would object. 

The details of precisely how the AIDS virus was synthesized, mass
cultured, and spread by incorporating into vaccination programs are
available but fairly intricate. It is beyond the scope of this report to
present a crash course in virology, epidemiology, genetic engineering,
and the military strategies of international fascism. Readers are
encouraged to obtain and study the references cited here, and demand a
full inquiry. Those officials who are actually involved in the coverup
will reveal it by their inaction when pressed to investigate. 

Evil is hard to confront, especially on the preposterous scale we have
here. If you acknowledge the presence of those who think their only hope
for survival is to kill off two thirds of all the other kinds, and their
ability to manage it, you then pretty much have to do something about
