138. That's really a lot...
... to pull out of the two words, "It's real".

Since reason isn't working with you, let's try grammar. Surely if he were talking about all of the programs he listed, he would have said "They're real". If "it's real" refers to a particular threat among the several he listed, how do you know which one he meant? Why one and not all? I think my reading, merely from the standpoint of correct English, makes far more sense--that "It's real" refers to the phenomenon of people working to achieve these things.

Do you beleive that someone could really come up with viruses that target a particular race, when it is well known that there are no biological differences between them? That was on his list too, you see?

There is NOTHING in that statement that endorses the feasibility, or even theoretical possibility, of any of the things he mentioned.

But you've already made up your mind, and you are going to stick to the only two words you can find in an off-the-cuff remark made by a man twenty years dead.

Anyway, what would I know about tectonics and electromagnetic weapons? I'm just a physics grad student.
