COVID-19: A Weapon of Mass Destruction?

Every one of us, around the world, feels the effects of COVID-19. At the same time, the global economy has suffered a terrible blow. I wonder where those ‘Leaders’ or ‘Misleaders’ are hiding that spoke vehemently against the Biological Weapons and Germ Warfare that Saddam Hussein of Iraq was going to unleash in 1992. Their focus of attention was Iraq. We have not heard a word from President Clinton, VP Al Gore, Mm Nancy Pelosi, or Mm Madeline Albright, either. These high-flyers were among the most vocal opponents of the regime in Iraq, as well as scare-mongers that made the U.S. seek out and kill Saddam. Where is their conscience now, although there exist sufficient proofs against the current Chinese dictator?

The present situation demands an even harsher punishment for the Chinese leadership as a whole. Why, because every evidence points to the cowardly act of their puppet-master.

He is squarely to blame for unleashing the Corona Virus on the innocent public around the world. I would categorically explain the evil designs of this rogue ‘leader’ that all the governments across the world have watched in silence and dared not condemn. I am very positive the Chinese authorities already possess the antidote for the virus but prefer to take their own sweet time to gauge the full potential of their dastardly act, before releasing the same to their allies.

  • Could there be reprisals against me? Sure.; Being already past my prime I am not so much attached to life anyway.
  • Will I be eliminated by the Red Army of the Chinese government? I expect it sooner rather than later.
  • Will my government protect me if they came after my family or me? I doubt it because these are spineless opportunists that hold power for a few terms and then retire with perks for life. To them, I am just a single, non-descript entity that is better dead than alive.

The onslaught unleashed by Corona Virus 2019, is no less dangerous than that from any perceived biological weapon that so many leaders had been warning us about, way back in 1998. Thankfully, that unproven threat is long gone, but the doors are wide open for any other regime to follow this path. The most significant danger lies in its fast, undetectable growth by transmission from person-to-person. And of course, it does not need any sophisticated, high-powered delivery system. There was not even the slightest hint that such a danger could come from China.

The United States government went to all extremes to uncover the allegedly heinous plot of Saddam Hussain, the erstwhile dictator of Iraq. Alas, they did not find any solid proof of the same, at least not anything worth an iota of concern for public safety. Isn’t it time to think and act in the same way against China and its dictatorial President for life?

  • If his goal was not an absolute power, why did Xi force the Chinese people to accept him as their supreme leader for life? 
  • It gives him total control over everything that happens in the world’s most populated country. 
  • No facts ever come out of China until and unless duly vetted by his cronies. 
  • No one has the answer to why the coronavirus failed to spread widely within China first. 

We all know the age-old wisdom of Sir John DalbergActon. He is perhaps best known for the remark, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” 

Here is a snapshot from the afore-mentioned scare of biological weapons:

“One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.” President Clinton, Feb 4, 1998.  

“Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.” Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.

“Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology, which is a threat to countries in the region. He has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec 16, 1998.

“We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.” Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept 19, 2002.

“We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.” Al Gore, Sept 23, 2002.

“Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter, and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.” Al Gore, Sept 23, 2002.

On Feb 17, 1998, President Clinton delivered a speech at the Pentagon. Excerpts from that speech include the following comments:

“The UNSCOM inspectors believe that Iraq still has stockpiles of chemical and biological munitions, a small force of Scud-type missiles, and the capacity to restart quickly its production program and build many, many more weapons.”

The risks that the leader of a rogue state can use biological or chemical weapons on us or our allies is the greatest security risk we face,” Madeline Albright.

I want to remind our ‘Leaders or (misleaders)’ around the world of an urgency to check the designs of the current government in China. It poses a much more significant threat to the entire Universe than what the U.S. government felt about Saddam.

Xi Jinping has already proclaimed himself to be the President of the Chinese Republic for life. Does that give anyone an indication of his dictatorial power? If not, we can always look back and see how different viruses originated from that country over time. Perhaps, those were trial runs for something bigger. In case you have second thoughts or reservations in calling a spade a spade, I can understand.

Can somebody please explain why the rest of China, other than the originating city of Wuhan, remained unscathed?

China is the most populated nation on the face of the earth. Population concentration in China is seven times denser than in the United States, and yet the viral infection from person-to-person failed to spread throughout that country?

  • Does it imply nobody ever travels from Wuhan to any other city in China at all? 
  • How did they manage to build a hospital within days, specifically to treat Corona Virus cases? Proves beyond doubt, they had all the necessary construction plans, materials, supplies, gadgets, and personnel lined up already. Their ingenious trick made the world wonder about their mastery in superfast Emergency Relief, some cheap trick of a master-magician, I would say! 
  • How did the Chinese government so efficiently, as well as confidentially control the virus from spreading to Beijing, Shanghai, and the other 29 major cities with over five-million populations each? 
  • The second and even more critical question that needs an answer, and I have no fear of voicing it, relates to the unforgivable role of the World Health Organization. Their much-delayed action reeks of inexcusable mismanagement. Sure, the Chief took orders from his master and willingly obliged for the support he received in getting elected to that coveted position.
  • Is there a logical answer to the wilful culpability of WHO experts in gauging the severity of the problem? Also, why the agency failed to forewarn every cost-sharing member state of the impending danger so they could take necessary precautions well in time?
  • Is there a remote possibility they bowed down to the Chinese regime, not to cause an alarm at the early stage itself? 

First, China let the virus grow unchecked within the boundaries of just one city. Was it a trial run, to assess its potential to create havoc? Did they intentionally leave major, densely populated areas unscathed? I am sure there will be inquiries conducted by various agencies. Still, the results may never see the light of the day due to that regime’s strict control over media.

And then they informed the W.H.O. which elected to sit over it, without ringing any alarm bells. 

By the time the general public was made aware of the ‘pandemic,’ it was already too late. Each one of us can ask our leaders a million questions about why and how COVID-19 grows so fast. Still, the answer lies in the willful experimentation of a rogue ‘misleader’ that no one dares name by name.

I am confident I have every right to ask the above questions, and so do you. However, you may choose to keep quiet, for fear of reprisals. But, please keep in mind fear brings untold misery. I am as much a citizen of this world as anyone else. My life is also affected by the spread of this virus.

I sincerely hope this” movie-trailer’ of a cowardly act never blossoms into a full-fledged movie, to wreak untold havoc on the innocent inhabitants of this beautiful Universe. Let some sane minds give serious thought to my above observation and initiate the formulation of a formidable action plan to ‘nip this evil in the bud.’ If not, I would gladly challenge anyone with logic to prove me wrong. Anyone with logical answers to my above questions is welcome to respond and prove me wrong.

On a side note, I read a couple of days ago the warning Bill Gates gave about a repeat of such pandemics every twenty years. I would say, if China goes unpunished this time, we shall see a repeat every two to three years, or sooner!

Thank You, With A Prayer for All!


Bharat Mathur
Bharat Mathur
WHERE goal setting and systematically achieving each one of them has been the ‘Mantra’, where earning trust by delivering value has been an uncompromising principle and where deeply impactful experiences have made an indelible impression to look directly into the eyes of toughest problems and tackling them head-on has been a major cementing glue in the foundation, Bharat Mathur fits the bill, hands down! Creating value for others, out of the challenges his career in the “C” Suite kept throwing at him left, right and center, Bharat now finds solace in being a ‘Guide by Your Side’ rather than a ‘Sage on the Stage with An Eye on What You Buy’! Past 4 decades of Bharat’s life have been no less eventful than that of anyone else in similar circumstances. However, the way he lived from one challenge to another and stayed focused on his goal is clearly visible as much in his Coaching as in his #1 Best Seller Book: “you Are YOU-nique: Realize Your True Worth”! His next book project tackles ‘Internet of things’ (IoT) from the viewpoint of a layman and helps understand this fast-approaching revolution in simple, easy-to-understand language with live examples: “SMART PHONE + I o T = INCOMPARABLE OPPORTUNITIES” Nurturing a number of successful businesses, mentoring a lot more towards astronomical growth and helping them identify and eradicate trouble spots, Bharat has rightfully earned the nickname: ‘Achiever’ Send him Bouquets or Brickbats, Bharat loves it all!

  1. Bharat, its also not spoken about much, or even at all that those who wanted to warn of the danger of this event were killed, or purposely infected by China’s government. This being only one of the many things that China is responsible for and guilty of. Locking their own people inside their apartments so that they cannot leave infect other, so they died inside. God help the United States of America if people allow this country to become a Socialistic government. I think, hope, believe and pray that we have enough strong Americans to prevent that. I also hope that China will be held responsible as well as the WHO. God Bless

    • Thank you, Ms. Lynn, for voicing your concern here that resonates so well with mine! There are so many negatives surrounding the Chinese leadership that the world may never know. Just two days ago, I had to give another reader a brief glimpse into the Chinese history from the days of Chou en Lai, and Mao-Tse-Tung. Their treatment of the countrymen was worse than that meted out to wild animals in the present-day wet markets of Wuhan and elsewhere. Unfortunately, the current regime has taken it to a much higher level.

      Now that I see the British (officiating) Prime Minister, as well as so many other leaders, voice their grave concern over the Chinese (misleader’s) intent, I am sure there would be severe consequences for this dictator.

      As regards America, we are far more cultured and better connected to society at large that something of this magnitude may NEVER take roots here.

      Thanks once again, With Warm Regards, and A Prayer for All!

  2. You have a right to voice these questions I’m sure So many are asking the same quietly amidst themselves.
    Thank you for this reminder of what the quest for power does in the face of humanity
    Corruption exists..end of story,
    Good for you for speaking up Bharat.

    • Your support at this particular time, and under the circumstances, makes a big difference in helping me choose whom to call a friend, Ms. Paula! I took a stand because I know, within my heart of hearts, that keeping quiet in the face of injustice, makes us an accessory to the crime as well.

      I believe in the dictum: ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’ (George Santayana-1905.) Unfortunately, the ‘misleaders’ I have taken the liberty to mention by name, all of them belong to the same category. They made mistakes and then forgot to keep their eyes open for other potential evil forces that could go that route. Their resolve to turn a blind eye gave a free-hand to the Chinese regime to wage a ‘virus war,’ that brought untold suffering to practically everyone outside of its boundaries, with some exceptions, of course.

      Thanks a lot for your valuable time and the readiness to voice your opinion on this delicate subject, Ms. Paula!

      Warm Regards, With A Prayer for All

  3. Bharat, I have no fondness of any of the individuals you mentioned in the first paragraph of this. Your low opinion of this group is well presented in addition to being well justified. I may admire President Trump but I cannot help but feel he knows more than what he is admitting to in public. At this time I do not have any confidence that any of our elected officials are being totally candid. This may very well have been a planned biological attack perpetrated by the Chinese government but we can only speculate or listen to the news or read news media reports be they Conservative or Liberal. The media has playing people for quite some time now with their predictions of gloom and doom. Their objective as they are very much interested in high profits generated by the increased rates they can charge their advertisers from the boost in the ratings they are getting. I am all for swift and severe punishment being administered to the Chinese government but now we have to seek a cure, preventative medications which will not be created overnight but of equal importance is getting our country back to enjoying our unhindered way of life. Who would have thought a day would come that you cannot go out to eat, attend a ballgame, concert, play or simply stop and talk to a person you met on the street.

    • As always, your observation makes my heart swell with pride, Dear Joel Sir. Your categorical explanation makes me so much more confident. Yes, the media indeed continues to manipulate the facts to suit the deep-pocketed puppet-masters. However, I also see a growing disinterest in the general populace to bring to justice the scare-mongers like those I cared to mention by name.

      It is a pity, nobody else has dared ask what prevents these self-centered, short-sighted politicians from shouldering the responsibility for turning a blind eye towards the Chinese monster moving forward on the path of ‘Germ Warfare’ under their watch. They were the ones to highlight the possible catastrophe emerging out of biological weapons; little wonder the ‘dictator’ took serious note and put his machinery to work in this direction. Guess what, the resulting consequences have brought the gullible public to the literal door to hell, with no possibility of a U-Turn.

      Thanks a Million, With Warm Regards, and a Prayer for All

    • Thanks a lot, Dear Len Sir, for your touching words of comfort and appreciation! I try to find inspiration in the select group of friends that I genuinely admire, without the need to re-emphasize your top spot among the so few of them.

      The need of the hour is for the individuals I specifically mentioned in the article, to gather the courage and stand up to the Chinese bully. I had been expecting such action much, much earlier. And, I used to have firm faith that Americans, by blood, have very strong ethics in matters of justice for all. Some leaders, my foot!

      Alas, they have disappointed us all, for the sake of enjoying their stolen glory. I would vehemently insist the ‘short-sighted clowns’ usurped it. They now enjoy the post-retirement perks, so don’t feel the need to defend their misdeeds any longer. These self-centered ‘Misleaders’ lied and cheated the gullible public by shouting wolf where now existed. The most unfortunate part of the equation is that now we are looking at a mad, hungry wolf (Xi Jinping) in the eyes when he is ready to decimate the entire human race outside of his territorial limits. Still, these DUMMIES are nowhere around.

      Dear Len Sir, kindly forgive me for using such unparliamentary epithets for specific people, but the facts push me to go much farther. However, I would still contain myself, because I am NOT a Parliamentarian.

      Thanks, with Warm Regards, and A Prayer for All

  4. Thank you, Bharat, for this spot-on article you shared with us. President Xi (Should be called Emperor) has reinforced the tenets of communism espoused by Mao, at least from everything that I have read. The free world needs to look skeptically at the image China tries to present, a modified Capitalist society. Communism murdered 100 million people give and take with Mao being one of the worst. People have no idea because they are not being taught true facts about history, and to some degree this was happening when I grew up. People in the U.S. should read more about, Lenin who managed to fool the Russian people. Look how well that turned out.

    As far as WHO, you pose great questions as well as the issues regarding Hussein. Reportedly, the Israelis detected movement of things to Syria.

    Thank you for this! You have every right to ask these questions. This is not about the suffering Chinese people but a deceptive, evil powerhouse.💖

    • Your feedback is always highly appreciated, Darlene! Alas, history repeats itself, and unless we learn to write our own, the same fate shall keep falling on the future generations’ heads as well. It is the people like us that elect spineless, non-ethical crooks as our leaders. We give them a free hand to manipulate our future and that of our children, the way they want.

      In the present day, the word ‘government’ has become a misnomer. None of them exemplifies a long-term vision in its acts. The buzz word is personal glory and they won’t mind sacrificing any number of innocents in this quest.

      We are happy-go-lucky people. Small goodies, a little bit of federal help in times like this, mingling with the crowd in jam-packed halls, a few words of solace from the so-called ‘Leader,’ and we quickly sell our soul to the devil.

      My assessment of Ji Xinping equates him with Idi Amin, the cannibal dictator of Uganda, nothing less.

      Well, for fear of going beyond the permissible count of words, I’ll sum up here with a massive note of Thanks and A Prayer.
