Conspiracy Of Swine Flu?

Some interesting ideas came up after a discussion of Swine Flu.on the all time favorite Coast Io Coast program,,Some points:
The new outbreak of swine flu is associated with a never-seen-before strain of influenza A virus that contains DNA similar to avian, swine and human viruses. Though called swine flu, the new strain has not infected pigs. Full coverage at Reuters. Pictured is an electron micrograph of a virus from a 1976 outbreak of swine flu.

From the Newsletter
On Monday night, George Noory returned to Los Angeles and hosted a special edition of C2C with examination and analysis of the recent swine flu outbreak. 2nd hour guest, Dr. Gary Ridenour suggested that this virus could further mutate and become even more dangerous. We could see mass school closings and work outages in the U.S., he said, and in a worst-case scenario, 5-15 million people could die. He estimated there was a 40% chance that the new virus was man-made, and was released either accidentally or intentionally.

Appearing in the latter half of the show, Alex Jones and Stephen Quayle both agreed the new swine virus was not natural. It's a "genetically altered bioweapon," possibly being "beta-tested in the field" to target specific races, Quayle contended. Jones cited experts in the field, pointing toward the virus being designed, and he noted how unusual it is for a flu virus to start out of season, and not come from the East.

Quayle suggested the virus may be part of a global plan to reduce the population, and that the mysterious deaths of microbiologists in recent years could be connected to this outbreak-- scientists who could help stop a pandemic were taken out. Jones posited the idea that flu fears could be deliberate hype by the government in order to distract the public from other issues

I do agree that it is a valid International Public Health Problem,,the timing is interesting,but a plot? What do you think?

I love a good conspiracy theory!!!! I'd like to research the deaths of microbiologists too. However, one of my interests is bubonic plague/Black Death...We are, sadly, rather overdue for a grand scale pandemic. I think it's a matter of time.

On the other hand, we have the technology to *do* it and use it as a weapon too, so I wouldn't NOT consider that as a possibility.

Eeeekkk...I can't get into this too much or I literally drive myself batty. Speaking of batty--I got way too much into the avian flu. So gonna have to stop here! At least you warned me!

The WHO raised the pandemic alert to level 4 today it should be at level 5 which is "a strong strong signal that a pandemic is imminent" since the infection now effects more that two countries in one WHO region. Swine Flu diagnosed in Mexico, USA and Canada. This seems odd, check out the WHO's own website to varify this information.

I am asking my friends to read "Biology of belief" or "Molecules of emotion" before buying into this virus story. Lets just keep our immunity strong . Where is all the info on how to do that. Fear is the pandemic
