    Anthrax, I believe, can be made airborne.

    You just need a delivery system and a large group of people, once it incubates it can spread that way.

    The goal would be to get enough people infected at the start.

    I could be wrong on that however.
    Kill. Leaving no one alive, a la Stephen King's famous novel "The Stand".

    Hard to imagine why any warmonger would want a bio weapon that only killed 10% of the enemies, etc. But then, warfare tactics are not my thing.

    I just am fascinated by medical disasters.

    You can at least control the effects with poison.
    Several others have your same idea. Two people were arrested here for dumping cyanide into.a local river.

    The Ebola virus outbreak that’s ravaging West Africa probably started with a single infected person, a new genetic analysis shows.

    This West African variant can be traced genetically to a single introduction, perhaps a person infected by a bat, researchers report in the journal Science.

    though I admit that doesn't fully answer your question.

    And there's probably lots of other crazy theories...
    Most scientists think AIDS, etc. jumped from monkeys to humans when a small, previously isolated tribe that included monkey meat in their diet was exposed to other humans due to "development", etc.

    Of all the dangerous practices, including animal brains in a human's diet appears to be the most risky.

    Ebola may have moved across species in the same way, but the large bat population was disturbed and their sickness may have reached humans directly or via some intermediary species.

    Ayup. We ALL have the same biology.

    Plus, the "electronic pulse" weapons are here, or nearly here. They also kill living creatures without damaging buildings, etc.

    If you haven't seen it, "Outbreak" is a great movie, and reasonably accurate on the science.

    "Inferno" is also good.

    Ebola isn't that effective unless its in a heavily populated area.

    Other diseases would be much more effective.

    It could have been a test I suppose but I haven't seen anything on my conspiracy monitor yet so I doubt it.

    Basically if us conspiracy people aren't talking about it then there is zero chance of it being legit.

    There is more evidence for Chemtrails than the Ebola virus being manmade and Chemtrails were debunked a long time ago.
    Ebola is both highly contagious and highly deadly. As these things go, it's not a shabby little human eradicator.

    Not perfect though. Nobody infected with Ebola is walking around feeling fine for 2 weeks, infecting everyone they meet.

    Its important to note that this is just a hypothetical discussion.

    I can't imagine this horror happening.

    It is a man made up disease - but the villages that Big Pharma have their experimental Labs in are surrounded by four - eight thousand US and British troops. One village threw the NGOs down a well - Biowarfare is done through vaccines.

    It's very different; the polio vaccine was created from weakened polio viruses. We didn't create the polio virus.
