EBOLA Virus (in engl. Sprache)
Who's the Criminal?
EBOLA virus disease is spreading fast causing a big stir among the world community.
The number of people infected by this virus was 3 069, of which more than 1 550 died as of the end of August in West Africa and the rest of the world. WHO estimated the number to be infected would reach 20 000 in nine months to come.
It is said the death rate from the contamination of this virus is 90%.
This virus is fast contagious and very dangerous. For instance, from June 25 to 30 the number of the contracted by this virus was 22, of which 14 died.
In many African countries a state of emergency was declared. As this virus goes beyond West Africa, swiftly hitting Asia, Europe, and the Americas, many countries gave warnings to outgoing travelers of the possible danger of contamination, and those suspected to be contaminated have been isolated. WHO, too, has declared a state of emergency to provide against the disease this virus contaminates.
Generally, this virus is not air-contaminating, it infects from the blood or mucus of the infected. Therefore, it is slower in contamination than other disease. But this time it is quite different. It spreads rather faster. This leaves quite many questions to experts.
Then is this disease caused spontaneously?
EBOLA is a very pertinacious virus developed by the U.S. as part of the program to make a biological weapon.
The U.S. set about its research some 40 years ago. Of course it had been kept secret. This was ferreted out by the former Soviet union which began the study of quarantine line, said a Russian immunologist.
This laid bare the most vicious U.S. crime. AIDS is also a U.S. product for biological warfare.
Many things about EBOLA virus still remain in obscurity. But the secret will be known to all one day and the U.S. will be cursed by the world as the arch criminal of mankind.

DPRK Official Flails U.S. for Ebola Virus
Pyongyang, December 1, 2014 (KCNA) -- It is just the U.S. imperialism, chief mastermind of evils, that poses a serious threat to humankind's existence, said Kim Hyok Hwan, a department director of the C.C., DPRK Red Cross Society.
Referring to the fact that the deadly Ebola virus has been reported to be spread by the U.S., stunning the world community, Kim told KCNA:
As an aide to ex-President Reagan disclosed, the U.S. has been bent on the development of bio-weapons for its supremacy over the world. In the course it invented a progenitor of Ebola virus for the purpose of launching a biological warfare.
The U.S. Department of Defense paid 140 million dollars to a foreign pharmaceutical firm for research into Ebola virus and chose African countries as a bio-weapon testing ground, according to a Liberian professor.
The world media reported that Ebola cases broke out after some American members of the Medecins sans frontieres (MSF) toured Africa.
Russian, Singaporean and American newspapers criticized that the U.S. developed anti-Ebola virus vaccine through experiment on Ebola contagion, but has prevented this vaccine from being known to the world, only for its own interests.
As admitted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. imperialists have long conducted vivisections with fatal epidemics, inflicting untold sufferings on mankind.
AIDS, known as pest in the 20th century, was also developed by the U.S. imperialist homicides, and it still remains an incurable epidemic.
The U.S. imperialists did not hesitate to massacre hundreds of thousands of civilians with A-bombs and make peaceful fishermen a guinea pig for H-bomb only to realize their wild design.
As already known to everyone, the U.S. is the world's biggest nuke possessor.
Nevertheless, the U.S. launches "human rights" racket against other countries even by abusing international bodies.
Peace and prosperity can never settle in this planet as long as the U.S. imperialism remains unpunished.
All people and organizations aspiring after peace and justice in the world should turn out in a struggle to exterminate the U.S. imperialism, chief mastermind of evils. -0-
