‘Germ warfare’ fear over African monkeys taken to Iran

‘Germ warfare’ fear over African monkeys taken to Iran

Daniel Foggo

Hundreds of endangered monkeys are being taken from the African bush and sent to a “secretive” laboratory in Iran for scientific experiments.

An undercover inquiry by The Sunday Times has revealed that wild monkeys, which are banned from experiments in Britain, are being freely supplied in large numbers to laboratories in other parts of the world. All will undergo invasive and maybe painful experiments leading ultimately to their death.

One Tanzanian dealer, Nazir Manji, who runs African Primates, an animal-supplying company based in Dar es Salaam, said that in recent years he had been selling up to 4,000 vervet monkeys a year to laboratories, charging about £60 each.

Vervets are protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites). Despite this they are being routinely caught and sold to any buyer prepared to pay.

Appears that the Iranians are determined to create bioweapons of mass destruction. May they be cursed for eternity if successfull.

Didn’t Tom Clancy write a book involving that exact scenerio?

Yes, in Clancy’s book the monkey brains were used as a medium to grow ebola virus for a bio-weapons attack on the U.S.

“Appears that the Iranians are determined to create bio weapons of mass destruction. May they be cursed for eternity if successful.” ....................................It will also mean the end for all the Mad Mullahs and their followers, but unfortunately many good Iranians will perish with them. Not all Iranians are strict practicing Muslims, they are no different than some of the Catholics here who only go to church for weddings and funerals. Most only have one wife and party like we do once the front door is closed. Its a shame they have to put up with the regime. Thank you soooo much Jimmah, for all that you have done to help it become that way.

Absolutely.

Those Persian pricks think their 13th Imammy is hiding in a well somewhere near Qom, Qoz, Quze, Ooze, whatever the name of that damn place is, and Ahmadinnerjacket is in love with the place, so bomb it first. The mullahs have already dragged that godforsaken hell-hole back to the 9th century, we might as well send 'em the rest of the way back to about -3 months to Zero AD so they can alllll meet Jesus!

Hell yes, nuke the bastids! Cauterize that pus-filled, festering sore on the face of the Earth with some serious megatons, and use the mullahs and their little runt of a sockpuppet for Ground Zero.

Nuke Iran today, or face Ahmanutjob with a nuke, chemical OR bio weapons tomorrow.

That should be a no-brainer.

Yes, the book was "Executive Orders" ("Rainbow Six" also involved a bioweapon, but there the bad guys were enviro-nuts).

In "Executive Orders", Iranian agents come to the US and spread biological agents at various conventions (in order to have it spread widely as the infected convention-goers fly back to their home towns).

The purpose of the bio attack is to keep the US too busy with the internal plague to interfere with an Iranian plan to invade Saudi and take over the oil fields.

Part of the plan also involved an assassination of the President by an Iranian who had infiltrated into the Secret Service, so as to maximize confusion during the invasion of Saudi

Enough of this war talk.

I say we send those naked PETA girls over there, and let them go naked in cages (like they do in the U.S.) on the streets of Tehren to protest the cruel treatment of these monkies.

Seriously, though, we do need to eliminate the evil in Iran. And I do pray for the Iranian people, they have to live under this evil regime, and they are like us, want freedom, a decent life for their kids, etc. Hopefully they will someday soon know freedom.

Was it Clancy or some other writer who supposed a fully gassed up 747 could be crashed into a joint session of Congress?

Makes you wonder where the Islamonazis find their ideas. If they can’t come up with their own, at least Clancy has an imagination they can follow.

Yeah, that was Clancy's Debt of Honor. Good book.

I like that idea... we kill 2 birds with one stone... so to speak. First we teach those mean meanies about how mean they are to those poor poor precious little monkies, then those mean meanies will deal with the peta girls as only muslims can.

Works for me!

Monkey kidneys, not their brains, were used in the book and are commonly used in research.

This was bound to happen when we insisted they stop experimenting on humans.

"Yeah, that was Clancy's Debt of Honor."

Debt of Honor came out in 1994, the year following the first WTC bombing. I have no way of knowing how long Clancy worked on the novel, but at his prodigious pace (especially back then) I doubt he worked on it for much more than a year. Ramzi Yousef and Khalid Shaikh Mohammed went in to overdrive after the failure to bring down a tower in the '93 bombing and were well along in the Bojinka plot timeline by 1994. By 11 December 1994, Yousef made his trial run with the Phillippines Airline Flight 434 bombing.

It's doubtful (as some have suggested here) that the muzzies got their ideas from Clancy.
