Resident evil bioweapons seriously make no sense Anonymous No.41763013[View]
So... in the most recent game we have a weapon that's touted as supposedly solving the "POW problem" for an army. You know what ELSE solves a POW problem? A bullet to the head. Because infecting them with a Mind controlling, incurable fungi is the same as murdering them in international eyes, so you could just as well execute every captured soldier.
So you could only use the weapon if you were dedicating yourself to Total war genocide, in which case POW's aren't a problem anyways due to its indiscriminate nature, and would just result in the opposing side nuking the area and you too since we already have Indiscriminate genocide weapons.
We already have nukes, and useage of a weapon like this would constitute a warcrime in all ways, even getting past the fact that, in order to use it as a deterrant, you'd have to announce that you'd basically tortured a kid to make your weapon, automatically making you an international pariah if you wanted to use it for deterrence.
How the hell is there a "Profit" Step in this? The only people you could sell it to would be absolutely insane Insurgent groups like ISIS, and they're note exactly rolling in the money needed to make the research and development worth it financially.
