ZetaTalk: Pandemic Threats
written Apr 16, 2005

Bioterrorism has been the mantra of those in the Bush administration since 911, with little indication that the terrorists being fingered for 911 had any intent to unleash germs instead of bombs. Bombs are a long standing tool, as are suicide bombers, and using an airplane as a fuel laden bomb only an extension of this methodology. Germ warfare, as used by Saddam during his battles with rebellious Kurds, has been a tool long present in the arsenal, but little used. Was not the anthrax laden mail after 911 perpetrated by Bin Laden associates? No proof of that, but what has been proven is that the anthrax sent to Democratic Senators during this scare came from CIA labs in Utah. Despite this signature identification, no prosecution was done, and the matter dropped. Saddam, as is a matter of record, got his germs directly from the US when he was an ally during earlier Iran containment battles. If germ warfare were such a threat, then why the casual treatment of the agents?

Bioterrorism has become the bogeyman because it is convenient to contain the populace, suddenly, should Martial Law or its equivalent be desired. The Bush administration has run a number of tests to see whether this or that plan or technique might be useful, or to test the gullibility of the American people. We have mentioned the Shelter in Place tests, which failed to prove useful as a directive to the public, and the Terri Schiavo test, which failed to dismantle the balance of powers between the branches of government, allowing a Bush dictatorship to prevail in its place. The Patriot Act, supplanting civil liberty checks, has met resistance in many communities and is no longer in favor. With the military in revolt, behind closed doors, the Bush administration has only those power given it by the executive branch, primarily the Homeland Security outreach.

What would allow Homeland Security to force the residents of cities to remain in place, to Shelter in Place, selectively? Infection, affecting those neighborhoods likely to riot and not housing friends of Bush, could be quarantined. Vaccinations, again selected to enhance illness among those not deemed fit for the work camps of the future, could likewise be focused. All that is needed as a catalyst is a pandemic, a worldwide threat, and if nature does not cooperate then a nudge can be provided. Notable in the recent revelation that a proven deadly virus without natural immunity in the worlds populace was released on purpose to thousands of labs in dozens of countries worldwide, via standard mail routes, is the lack of uproar about this calamity, the lack of major media attention. Notable is the fact that this release came from a US lab. Notable is that Bush recently signed an executive order authorizing quarantine in the case of a bird-flu epidemic, after the release of this 1957 virus, and prior to the discovery by the public that the release had occurred. To those who fear being poisoned or contained in camps, we would point to the Earth changes, which will overtake those in power long before any planned pandemic can be initiated. Germs will be contained by disaster.

Bird Flu Outbreak Leads To Fears Of Pandemic [Apr 16] ‘The threat of a killer flu pandemic is greater than ever because of the spread of the bird flu virus in south-east Asia, the World Health Organisation said yesterday. Avian influenza is still spreading, despite countermeasures, and the possibility of a global epidemic that could kill millions is said to be more likely than not. The virus appeared to be adapting to human hosts, which was taken to be an indication that transmission between humans would become easier.’
Signs of the Times #1381
Bush Authorizes Use of Quarantine Powers In Cases of Bird Flu [Apr 1] ‘President Bush signed an executive order on Friday authorizing the government to impose a quarantine to deal with any outbreak of a particularly lethal variation of influenza now found in Southeast Asia. The fatality rate among those reported to have contracted the disease is about 70 percent.’ [and from another source] Pandemic-causing 'Asian flu' accidentally released [Apr 13] ‘The virus that caused the 1957 Asian flu pandemic has been accidentally released by a lab in the US, and sent all over the world in test kits which scientists are now scrambling to destroy. The flu testing kits helps pathology laboratories improve their accuracy. The 1957 pandemic started in China before spreading worldwide, killing an estimated two million or more people.’ [and from another source] The virus was sent to laboratories in Belgium, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and the United States [and from another source] Feds at Loss on How Flu Strain Got to Labs [Apr 14] ‘Federal officials are still at a loss to explain how a potentially deadly strain of influenza could be sent to more than 4,000 labs around the world. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is operating under the presumption that the H2N2 strain was purposefully included in the panels designed to test the labs´ proficiency in identifying viruses.’ [Note: was this release of 1957 bird flu pandemic virus to allow an initiation of martial law?]
