if aussies choose to go on murdering muslim babies for Israel and the
usa , then sooner or later australia will be destroyed
anybody who googles firebombing can see that a box of matches is far
more deadly than a nuke bomb
the nukes in japan did far less damage than the fire bombing did
Australias first "Australian of the year" was a war criminal IMHO
Burnet's solution: The plan to poison S-E Asia
By Brendan Nicholson
March 10 2002
World-famous microbiologist Sir Macfarlane Burnet, the Nobel prize
winner revered as Australia's greatest medical research scientist,
secretly urged the government to develop biological weapons for use
against Indonesia and other "overpopulated" countries of South-East
The revelation is contained in top-secret files declassified by the
National Archives of Australia, despite resistance from the Department
of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Sir Macfarlane recommended in a secret report in 1947 that biological
and chemical weapons should be developed to target food crops and
spread infectious diseases.
His key advisory role on biological warfare was uncovered by Canberra
historian Philip Dorling in the National Archives in 1998.
The department initially blocked release of the material on the basis
it would damage Australia's international relations. Dr Dorling sought
a review and the material was finally released to him late last year.
The files include a comprehensive memo Sir Macfarlane wrote for the
Defence Department in 1947 in which he said Australia should develop
biological weapons that would work in tropical Asia without spreading
to Australia's more temperate population centres.
"Specifically to the Australian situation, the most effective counter-
offensive to threatened invasion by overpopulated Asiatic countries
would be directed towards the destruction by biological or chemical
means of tropical food crops and the dissemination of infectious
disease capable of spreading in tropical but not under Australian
conditions," Sir Macfarlane said.
The Victorian-born immunologist, who headed the Walter and Eliza Hall
Institute of Medical Research, won the Nobel prize for medicine in
1960. He died in 1985 but his theories on immunity and "clonal
selection" provided the basis for modern biotechnology and genetic
On December 24, 1946, the secretary of the Department of Defence, F.G.
Shedden, wrote to Macfarlane Burnet saying Australia could not ignore
the fact that many countries were conducting intense research on
biological warfare and inviting him to a meeting of top military
officers to discuss the question.
The minutes of a meeting in January, 1947, reveal that Sir Macfarlane
argued that Australia's temperate climate could give it a significant
"The main contribution of local research so far as Australia is
concerned might be to study intensively the possibilities of
biological warfare in the tropics against troops and civil populations
at a relatively low level of hygiene and with correspondingly high
resistance to the common infectious diseases," he told the meeting.
In September, 1947, Sir Macfarlane was invited to join a chemical and
biological warfare subcommittee of the New Weapons and Equipment
He prepared a secret report titled Note on War from a Biological Angle
suggesting that biological warfare could be a powerful weapon to help
defend a thinly populated Australia.
Sir Macfarlane also urged the government to encourage universities to
research those branches of biological science that had a special
bearing on biological warfare.
A clinically scientific approach is evident in a note he wrote in
He said a successful attack with a microbiological agent on a large
population would have such a devastating impact that its use was
extremely unlikely while both sides were capable of retaliation.
"The main strategic use of biological warfare may well be to
administer the coup de grace to a virtually defeated enemy and compel
surrender in the same way that the atomic bomb served in 1945.
"Its use has the tremendous advantage of not destroying the enemy's
industrial potential which can then be taken over intact.
"Overt biological warfare might be used to enforce surrender by
psychological rather than direct destructive measures."
The minutes of a meeting at Melbourne's Victoria Barracks in 1948
noted that Sir Macfarlane "was of the opinion that if Australia
undertakes work in this field it should be on the tropical offensive
side rather than the defensive. There was very little known about
biological attack on tropical crops."
After visiting the UK in 1950 and examining the British chemical and
biological warfare research effort, Sir Macfarlane told the committee
that the initiation of epidemics among enemy populations had usually
been discarded as a means of waging war because it was likely to
rebound on the user.
"In a country of low sanitation the introduction of an exotic
intestinal pathogen, e.g. by water contamination, might initiate
widespread dissemination," he said.
"Introduction of yellow fever into a country with appropriate mosquito
vectors might build up into a disabling epidemic before control
measures were established."
The subcommittee recommended that "the possibilities of an attack on
the food supplies of S-E Asia and Indonesia using B.W. agents should
be considered by a small study group".
It 1951 it recommended that "a panel reporting to the chemical and
biological warfare subcommittee should be authorised to report on the
offensive potentiality of biological agents likely to be effective
against the local food supplies of South-East Asia and Indonesia".
Dr Dorling said that while Sir Macfarlane was a great Australian he
was also a product of times when many Australians held deep fears
about more populous Asian countries.
He said the Menzies government was more interested in trying to
acquire nuclear weapons. "Fortunately this also proved impracticable
and Australia never acquired a weapon of mass destruction."
The secretary of the Federation of Australian Scientific and
Technological Societies, Peter French, said he had not yet seen the
files but the whole notion of biological warfare was something that
Australian scientists would not be comfortable with today. "Viewed
through today's eyes it is clearly an abhorrent suggestion," Dr French
