Unfortunately those idiots just moved these research labs outside the USA to continue unhindered by the legal regulations.
The one based in Georgia, there idiotic Russophobic leadership should rethink in maintaining their bioweapons Lab. Also, check out the original date of the article...Nov. 2015. They took bats from China, to North Carolina and did this sick shit. Isn't it interesting they mention SARS, which makes you wonder if it was weaponized as well. Well it came back around, infected NATO generals, Pro-Western leaders (Ballsnutsorryho in Brazil), and made US companies lose trillions of dollars in the stock-market! Now how'd that work out for them?
This is exactly the sort of brain rotted hubris that governs the yanquis and their minions. I suspect that their non-closure of borders is based on them
being "informed" that the strains were "our creations" and would not affect "us". This also explains Trumpy's smug "its a flu" line until last week. But
as you note, reality did not follow the script. There is evidence that whatever was released initially mutated. This information is being actively suppressed
since I am not hearing any follow up. The strain in Iran appears not to be the same one in China. And I would not be surprised if the Italian strain was
also different. NATzO monkeys f*cked up big time. They forgot that corona is a retrovirus species and thus a genetic moving target. No amount
engineering of the RNA/DNA will compensate for this aspect.
Another possibility is that Russia was an intended target but reacted too fast and too effectively. This would require the virus to be dual target and
would likely compromise its utility. Russia's gene pool is a blend of European and Asian. If you want to contain the disease to China, maybe you
can develop a narrow gene target and then pray mutations do not let the virus jump to other targets before it fades away. (Fades away like SARS).
By trying to kill two birds with one stone NATzO f*cktards likely resulted in the Italian strain.
Predicting the mutation of a retro virus in the wild is not possible. Labs by definition deal with small sample sets in an artificial environment. And
there are no models that can simulate something like a virus infecting different hosts and undergoing genetic mutation. Basically the whole world
as a trial and error lab is the best researchers can do.
