US troops’ biochemical warfare plan exposed

Date: 28/03/2019 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

The fact that US forces in south Korea have continued to push ahead with a plan for biochemical warfare has recently been disclosed, giving rise to serious concern among the south Korean people.

According to the biochemical defence program budget assessment bill for the 2019 fiscal year worked out by the US Department of Defense, the US earmarked US$10.14 million more budget, or 15.6 percent rise over last year, for the Jupiter plan, a biochemical warfare plan targeting the DPRK, and decided to disburse US$3.5 million equivalent to 34.5 percent of the budget for wharf No. 8 of Pusan port, a dock for the US forces’ exclusive use, which is furnished with the general biochemical weapon lab and other related facilities.

Already in 2015, the US made an experiment on germ weapons by shipping live anthrax into its airbase in Osan, Kyonggi Province, and took Zika virus into its military base in Ryongsan in 2016 to conduct a bacteriological weapon development experiment. In April 2017, it brought relevant equipment for carrying out the Jupiter plan into wharf No. 8.

Such moves are reminiscent of the atrocities the US forces committed in the past.

During the Korean war (1950-1953), they used germ weapons, whose use had been prohibited worldwide, from the winter of 1950 in order to recover a heavy defeat.

Between 1961 and 1967, they used over 100 000 tons of chemical weapons in Vietnam, inflicting damage on more than two million people, and produced terrible aftereffects by polluting rivers and streams and destroying environment.
