If you actually read the paper, you would recognize that the authors were not advocating the development of biological weapons that target specific ethnic groups. The complete paragraph that quote comes from reads:
Although it may take several decades
for the process of transformation to unfold,
in time, the art of warfare on air, land, and
sea will be vastly different than it is today,
and “combat” likely will take place in new
dimensions: in space, “cyber-space,” and
perhaps the world of microbes. Air warfare
may no longer be fought by pilots manning
tactical fighter aircraft sweeping the skies of
opposing fighters, but a regime dominated
by long-range, stealthy unmanned craft. On
land, the clash of massive, combined-arms
armored forces may be replaced by the
dashes of much lighter, stealthier and
information-intensive forces, augmented by
fleets of robots, some small enough to fit in
soldiers’ pockets. Control of the sea could
be largely determined not by fleets of
surface combatants and aircraft carriers, but
from land- and space-based systems, forcing
navies to maneuver and fight underwater.
Space itself will become a theater of war, as
nations gain access to space capabilities and
come to rely on them; further, the distinction
between military and commercial space
systems – combatants and noncombatants –
will become blurred. Information systems
will become an important focus of attack,
particularly for U.S. enemies seeking to
short-circuit sophisticated American forces.
And advanced forms of biological warfare
that can “target” specific genotypes may
transform biological warfare from the realm
of terror to a politically useful tool.
In other words, the author lists development of genotype-targeted biological weapons as an example of a new kind of threat we may have to defend ourselves against.
There is no advocacy for the development of genotype-targeted weapons in this paper. And, there is no reason for you to accuse the authors of doing so.

yea.... here's a couple of interesting thoughts:
what were the names of the two ships used to invade Cuba causing the Bay of Pigs?
Zapata and Barbara (Zapata was the name of Bush, Sr.'s oil rig off the coast of Florida / Barbara is his wife's name)
who was behind the training of those who were a part of the invasion into Cuba that failed?
when Gerald Ford appointed Bush, Sr. as C.I.A. Director in the mid-70's - Bush, Sr. admits that this is his first affiliation with C.I.A. ever.
to really trip you out:
who else did Gerald Ford appoint during his presidency..... mind blowing!
Gerald Ford, the 80s and child sex slaves - this is how politics was played for a good 2 decades.
