Nobody can justify the production of bio weapons; harming another person has always been a part of man's faulty character with reasons relatively logical from someone else's standpoint. Just like the production of guns, grenades, bombs, missiles, bio weapon is simply a tool.


but dont you think that in this case, the potential risks are simply too great?

Indeed the risks of biotechnology are great but so are the atomic bombs, IBMs, nuclear subs, nuclear ships and other WMDs. Biotechnology has a great potential for good though.
