I wonder if it is likely that someone, somewhere, is trying to make a biological weapon out of this. And if so, I also wonder if terrorists would try to get it in order to use it.
For whatever my opinion is worth: someone is probably thinking about it, but not very seriously because the long incubation period makes it less useful as a weapon than several other pathogens. As for terrorists, biological weapons don't deliver the immediate, spectacular results that most terrorists seem to thrive on. (Note how few chemical weapons attacks there have been, and it's not much more difficult to prepare toxic chemicals than to prepare explosives.)
Civil war? What does that mean? Is there any foreign war? Isn't every war fought between men, between brothers?
