I have mixed thoughts; On one hand I think there is no way that they can be that stupid it has to be part of some plan, but on the other hand they have proved time and time again just how stupid they can be.
UNaccountable bureaucrats. What could possibly go wrong? Who will protect us from our protectors?
Something doesn't smell right.
Prior to the anthrax attack, I remember a TV program about our labs. A little pondering made me believe the TV program was some kind of signal.
So let’s bring Ebola infected people here and mix it with bird flu. What could go wrong?
Don’t worry about Ebola being invited in to the country. Nothing to worry about. The federal government has it all under control with the best and brightest bureaucrats watching out for us.
It’s brewing. The Obamas crisis is in, nearing the final
stages. He’s going to use Bio-terror as a false flag to
declare martial law. An outbreak of Ebola or something worse,
fake or real, and he’s in for good.
I have a feeling that by the time Obama is out, the dead
American body count is going to be in the millions.
While H5N1 (if the strain from Guangdong) is deadly, it isn't that contagious from a human to human standpoint, with only a couple of cases known of human to human transmission. Humans have caught the disease from infected poultry, where the disease is readily transmitted from bird to bird.
It is dangerous to bird populations, and contaminated poultry may be a vector as well as the bodily fluids of infected birds, admitted to the human body through cuts or scratches while butchering. The virus prefers the higher temperatures of birds or the deep human lung, and is not commonly expelled by coughs or sneezes by humans from the cooler upper respiratory tract.
However, combining strains might result in an organism more easily transmitted from human to human, and even with a reduced mortality rate that could be a significant human pathogen in the wild.
Whatever the case, these sort of 'mistakes' do not instill confidence in the same people who tell us there is no risk from other diseases...
They’re pretty sure that none of this stuff got loose. I know that’s good enough for me. How about you?
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
