Bio Martyrs

This week I watched an episode of Joe Rogan Questions Everything about the very real possibility of biological warfare. Instead of the possibility of Smallpox being used as a mass weapon becoming smaller, it seems that many of our leaders now fear this scenario more than ever before.

We wrote Weapon of Jihad over a decade ago as fiction. On 9/11, some of what we wrote became history instead of fiction. The completely fictional governments of Iran and Iraq that we set up have almost formed exactly as we described them. We wrote in 1999 that Saddam would be removed (which was ridiculous at the time) and that Iraq would become a puppet government of Iran with the withdrawal of our troops from the nation. So, that much of our fiction has proven to be prophecy.

Fast forwarding to today brings us even closer to the horrific events outlined in our story. Yes, we have enough vaccine to cover half of the American population, but it is all in Atlanta. It would never be distributed within the 4-day window required between exposure and it’s too late. It would not even be recognized within that time frame. The government now refers to what we called volunteers as Bio Martyrs. Bio Martyrs are willing to die to be used as a method of disseminating biological weapons to the enemy. 

Here’s hoping the rest of the story never really happens. If you would like to look up our book, go to Weapon of Jihad on and read more about the book and its plot.

    i went to an ER in Los Angeles for a blood draw in March of this year. the phlebotomist was muslim and about two months later i came down with a flu-like illness and i get night sweats on my neck on and off. i don’t mean to sound like a xenophobic asshole, and i’m probably just a hypochondriac but i wonder what the likelihood is of islamic extremist sleeper agents becoming certified medical professionals with the purpose of intentionally spreading disease in hospitals. L.A. has a big jewish population so i guess that would be a good place to undertake a secret biowarfare jihad.

    haha, i’m probably just crazy. i thought about getting an HIV test just to be on the safe side, but my illness and rash did not seem that symptomatic of ARS/HIV infection, and it was a blood draw that prompted my fears in the first place. and i think HIV really just spreads through blood transfusions and dirty drug needles, not butterfly needles used for blood draws in hospitals.

    anyway, i hope this helps someone in some way. hopefully the bad guys don’t read it and get any ideas though…

      Mike, Wow…that is something I never even thought about. It certainly seems plausible that something like what you are talking about could be included in an attack like the one described in Weapon of Jihad. There are so many ways of attacking us that our officials have never considered. They need to hire people like you and me to help them understand the holes in their security plans for us. I hope you feel better and, by all means, get it checked out. I do not know where you live, but there are plenty of things like that out there. Everything from Lyme Disease to Ehrlichiosis has similar symptoms. There are also plenty of syndromes out there with which our medical communities have no experience. I hope you find the answer. Let me know.
