Unlike all the wars and disputes we’ve seen in the past the upcoming war (if any) would never be the same we can guess this with the on-going pandemic of SARS COV Virus, this is just a tip of an iceberg and there’s a lot hidden from us. Major countries in the world are packed with numerous bio weapons. So much is undergoing research and these are much more deadly than the well-known nuclear weapons. That is why it called as a “war of the future” it would be “a bio-warfare” and something of definite catastrophes for all living beings on earth.
Biological warfare also known as germ warfare is the use of biological toxins or infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, insects, and fungi with the intent to kill or incapacitate humans, animals or plants as an act of war. Biological weapons often known as “bio-weapons”, “biological threat agents”, or “bio-agents” are living organisms or replicating entities that is, viruses which are not universally considered alive. Entomological (insect) warfare is a subtype of bio-warfare.
Biological warfare is distinct from nuclear warfare, chemical warfare and radiological warfare, which together with biological warfare make up CBRN, the military initialise for nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare using weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). None of these are considered conventional weapons, which are deployed primarily for their explosive, kinetic, or incendiary potential. Although this world has prepared these weapons but it isn’t yet ready to tackle its attack.
Biological weapons may be employed in various ways to gain a strategic or tactical advantage over the enemy, either by threats or by actual deployments. Like some chemical weapons, biological weapons may also be useful as area denial weapons. These agents may be lethal or non-lethal, and may be targeted against a single individual, a group of people, or even an entire population. They may be developed, acquired, stockpiled or deployed by nation states or by non-national groups. In the latter case, or if a nation-state uses it clandestinely, it may also be considered bio-terrorism.
More than 16 million people have been infected by the coronavirus COVID-19 world-wide with the death toll crossing 650,000, the virus which first emerged in China in December 2019 could be the start of World War 3 and the world would not even know. The analysis done by major Intelligences of the world indicates so.
The virus could have been made in China and this could be a part of its intentions to start a war against the world, if the war begins then it will be fought on the basis of biological weapons (germ-warfare). It will also use psychological warfare and attack economies of the world.
Even during the past century, more than 500 million people died of infectious diseases. Several tens of thousands of these deaths were due to the deliberate release of pathogens or toxins, mostly during attacks in the Second World War. Two international treaties outlawed biological weapons in 1925 and 1972, but they have largely failed to stop countries from conducting offensive weapons research and large-scale production of biological weapons. And as our knowledge of the biology of disease-causing agents—viruses, bacteria and toxins—increases, it is legitimate to fear that modified pathogens could constitute devastating agents for biological warfare.
India like every other nation need to dig more into these type of microorganisms and boost its virology science. Protection from these bioweapons could be only when we know them in advance. Knowing them into deep Nano science is the key to protective measures from them.
