I'm not saying this is a way to "accidentally" unleash smallpox on an enemy but this is a great way to make it look accidental.

Hmmm...the words explosion and biowarfare storage facility in the same sentence is never good.

Not saying it is the EOTWAWKI, just...yeah... :ooh:

The Russians have explicitly that no radiation was released from the reactor no bio weapons escaped their enclosures and in fact they were completely unaffected.
