‘Ethnic Bomb’ Now Linked to Korean Intrigue
Exclusive to American Free Press
By Gordon Thomas
A top North Korean scientist, working on a race-based bomb, has vanished. Was he taken by Western intelligence operatives or did the Chinese nab him?（北朝鮮の人種爆弾研究の最高権威者が姿をくらました。彼は西欧の秘密機関に囚われたのか、或いは中国のそれに囚われたのか。）
Has Dr. Ri Chae Woo, North Korea’s world-ranking expert working on a “whites-only” racial/genetic bomb, been snatched in a combined CIA, MI6 and Australian secret service operation? Or has Ri been grabbed by the Chinese Secret Intelligence Service―so that the communist government can discover just how far Kim Jong II, North Korea’s unpredictable dictator, has advanced his threat to launch the ethnic bomb upon the world?（北朝鮮のリー・チェウー博士は白人専用の生物爆弾を作っている世界的権威だが、彼は米国のCIA、英国のMI6、オーストラリア秘密警察の連合隊によってさらわれたのかだろうか？それともリー博士は中国の秘密警察に捕まり、中国共産党政権は北朝鮮の狂気の独裁者金日正が世界に人種爆弾をばらまくぞ威すのにどの位進歩を遂げたかを見届けようとしているのだろうか？）
Kim could precipitate a crisis, which would bring China into direct confrontation with the United States―something it is not yet ready to do.（金日正は未だ決心のつかない中国を米国との紛争に直接巻き込もうとしているのか。）
The “bomb,” which is more accurately characterized as a biological weapon, is designed to attack specific human genetic structures. Its dispersal methods vary, but most analysts expect it would be put in a warhead and launched on a missile. Mossad, the CIA and MI6 have all independently confirmed Ri and his team of microbiologists were developing an “ethnic bomb” designed to attack white races.（人種爆弾はミサイルに乗せて打ち込まれるだろう。）
The news has already sent a shock wave through the closed world of microbiology used for covert purposes.
There are various genetic components for racial types: hair color and texture, skin and eye color all the way down to nose shapes.
Ri and his researchers were working on a genetic bomb that would be deadly accurate in its targeting. To achieve this, they needed to create a genetic profile of people who uniquely share common inherited variations of their dopamine-regulating genes regardless of their ostensible race, geography or ethnicity.（リー博士と研究仲間は人種爆弾が正確に働くように白人特有の遺伝形態を探る為ドーパミン制御因子を調べていた）
A secret report, prepared for Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz by a team of geneticists, states: “Consider what could happen with a virus or bacteria that only infected a certain type of person. Consider the political leverage a nation would have if it could credibly threaten the extinction of all people worldwide of a certain color. Targeting specific genotypes could transform bio warfare.”
At Britain’s Porton Down and at Fort Detrick, Md., the details are being urgently studied. “A whites-only ethnic bomb in the hands of bin-Laden or a rogue state like North Korea or Iran could have a dramatic effect on the current balance of power,” said a microbiologist at Fort Detrick.
“No one yet knows how far the North Korean research has gone. But the indications strongly suggest the work is far more advanced than any similar research in the West,” said a senior Israeli intelligence source.（北朝鮮でどの位研究が進んでいるかは誰も知らないが、欧米の同様な研究より遥かに進んでいると考えられる根拠がある。）
The search to create a “whites-only” bomb began in the aftermath of the Korean War when U.S. prisoners were secretly experimented upon in North Korea.
Until recently, China has been prepared to use North Korea as another surrogate to threaten the West while the communist government continues to build its own arsenal to face the United States.
In a document CIA Director George Tenet prepared for President Bush, the intelligence chief wrote: “by 2015, China will have deployed tens to several tens of missiles with nuclear warheads targeted against the United States.” All the major decision-making by the Bush administration neo-conservatives for the Pacific region has been based on that prediction.
But news of the “whites-only ethnic bomb” has forced the Pentagon to rethink its position over North Korea. There is growing intelligence that North Korean leader Kim Jong II could be planning his own pre-emptive strike―increasingly convinced that it will be only a matter of time before the Bush administration deals with undoubtedly the most powerful arm in the “axis of evil.”（白人専用の人種爆弾のニュースはペンタゴンをして北朝鮮問題を考え直さざるを得ない事態に置かされた。金日正は先制攻撃を本当にやるつもりではないか、という情報が集まるにつれ、ブッシュ政権がもうすぐ決断を下すだろう。）
Using its own missiles, North Korea can already hit West Coast cities like Seattle and Los Angeles.
Working with Iran, Kim could provide biological warheads for Tehran’s Shaab-3 missiles. They have a range of 1,000 miles, bringing Israel and Cyprus―where the United States and Britain had strategic listening posts―within range of an “ethnic bomb” or other germs.
But the scientist who was working to make this possible, microbiologist Ri, has vanished after leaving his lab complex deep underground in the Chuba-ri Chemical Corp. in the city of Anbyon. The site is heavily guarded.
Ri was last seen in his lab late in June. On the last weekend of that month, he said he was going to visit what is believed to be the nerve center of North Korea’s biological warfare research program. It is concealed under a mountain near Sukho, close to the Chinese border. It is there that the “whites-only” ethnic bomb is being developed.
It is where Ri developed other biological weapons. Just as Iraq’s notorious “Dr. Germ,” Dr. Rihad Taha, used prisoners to test out her biological weapons, similar experiments are conducted at Sukho. It is these experiments that could lay him open to charges of war crimes―if he has fallen into the hands of the West.
But at least one person who knew Ri―Dr. Norbert Vollersten, who worked in North Korea and now leads international demonstrations against the Kim regime―believes that Ri would have anticipated the possibility of facing trial.
“There is every possibility that he would have brought with him important documents listing the stage of the research he was engaged upon,” Vollersten said. “He would trade them for a new life in the United States.”（北朝鮮でリー博士と面識のあるドイツのノーバート・フォラーステン博士は「彼は研究の経過を記した重要書類を持ち出した可能性が高い。彼は其れを使ってアメリカで新生活を始めたいのではないか」と云っている。）
There is a precedent. After World War II, top Japanese scientists who had conducted germ experiments on U.S. and British prisoners were granted immunity from prosecution if they agreed to reveal their work to scientists at Fort Detrick. Many of those scientists were later granted U.S. citizenship and new identities.
Ri, along with his wife and two teenage children, managed to cross the border into China last August.
Douglas Shin, another campaigner against the Kim regime, who now lives in Los Angeles, said: “There is an organization which has helped a number of scientists to defect from North Korea. We believe Ri had previous meetings with its people. We also think he had in his possession on the day he disappeared, over 100 pages of documents and photographs showing human experiments. Those documents are the crown jewels that America needs to nail North Korea.”
“Despite its citizens starving, Kim has spent large sums of money on biological weapons,” confirmed John Bolton, U.S. under secretary of state for arms control and international security.
As well as the “whites-only ethnic bomb” program, there is mounting evidence of how far advanced North Korea’s biological program has become since it began to develop biological weapons in the 1960s.
Initial research had focused on anthrax, cholera and yellow fever. But both the CIA and MI6 claim that in the past five years, Ri has led a team working exclusively to develop the plague―the Black Death of medieval times―and smallpox. The only known repositories for smallpox are at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta and at a similar laboratory in Moscow. Both are strictly monitored by the World Health Organization under the 1972 Biological and Toxin Convention (BWC) an international treaty signed by over 140 nations.
But the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, at Fort Detrick, has accumulated “credible evidence” that a number of terrorist groups or nations have obtained, or are trying to obtain, clandestine stocks of smallpox―and are actively trying to produce weaponized armaments based upon the virus. Israel and North Korea are placed at the top of the list. Both have refused to sign the BWC treaty.
“It is to try and discover how far advanced North Korea has become that makes Ri so important in the entire black world of biological warfare,” said Douglas Shin.
The mystery of his disappearance began three weeks ago, in the bustling city of Guangzhou in southern China. The Australian government has its consulate in a high-rise office building in the city.
In the early hours of the morning on a day in September, a man was seen trying to enter the building. His physical description―middle-aged, stocky, bespectacled and with thinning hair―matched that of Ri.
The man was seen to reach the stairwell of the high-rise. But he never emerged again. The consulate was closed at the time. But earlier local residents had seen “foreigners coming and going from the upper floors where the consulate is situated,” said one.
All the Australian government in Canberra will admit is that it would have been impossible for anyone to reach the consulate by the stairwell.
Had Ri been met in the stairwell by the combined team of CIA, MI6 and Australian security agents? If so, did they smuggle him out by some other means? And where did they take him from Guanzhou?
There have been some reports, so far never confirmed, that Ri was taken to the coast and spirited across to Taiwan. If so, it would be a remarkable feat. The sea in that area is heavily patrolled by Chinese navy gunboats and warships.
The other, and perhaps more plausible theory, is that Ri was grabbed by Chinese secret service agents. His fate will then be sealed: after interrogation he will be sent back to North Korea and certain death.
His wife and children have, according to U.S. intelligence sources, made their way out of China and could soon be in the United States.（彼の妻と子供達は既に中国から出てアメリカに向かっているという情報もある。）
A key question is whether Ri passed over his explosive documents to his wife as her “passport” to freedom in America.
