Interesting to see they may be way ahead of us in some ways.
Weaponizing anthrax, or just ensuring its military isn't vulnerable to
it? Clever, in either case. Prudent, too.
A North Korean soldier who defected to the South was found to have
antibodies to anthrax – triggering concerns the rogue regime has
weaponized the deadly bacteria, according to reports Tuesday.
The man, who was either exposed to or vaccinated for anthrax, had
developed immunity to the deadly disease before defecting, UPI
reported, citing local Channel A.
A South Korean intelligence official who spoke on condition of
anonymity did not say which of the four soldiers who fled the hermit
kingdom this year had the antibodies in his system.
