As bird flu 'ravages' through countries, newspapers, radio and tv reports emphasise the risk and the potential global epidemic thats hitting home. Due to this media frenzy many citizens of these countries demand support.. want a sign that we'l live and survive.. 'want an antidote'.

Last year America bulked up money into buying the antidote 'Tamiflu' froma company called 'Gilead'. This cure costs $100 per person and will cost billions and billions to cover most of the world, yet where is the risk?? Several people will argue that birds and animals have all died as a result of being exposed to bird flu, yet many reports suggest these people had high contact with dead animals, is it not possible that some kind of other virus could have been living off the dead animal and transferrered?

I was always under the impression that when a 'carrier' (me or you) dies then so does the virus within the person, how can dead livestock still carry the virus?

The company 'Gilead' are based in N.America, Europe and Austrailia, all rich countries.. all in it together??

Nearly 1,900 employees in North America, Europe and Australia contribute to the Gilead mission of advancing patient care by developing ground-breaking therapeutics to treat life-threatening infectious diseases.

Gilead Sciences is committed to increasing global access to Truvada and Viread for people living with HIV. The Gilead Access Program helps address this need in the developing world.

Having looked around this website and different sections many people talk of the NWO or New World Order and how they are looking for a chance to overthrow Governments and officially take control.. or come out of the shadows as it where. Is this 'epidemic' enough to be able to take control? if a Government has actually taken a virus and in the confusion take office? If this virus did spread wouldn't people not want to risk getting ill and stay in doors?? I smell a gateway somewhere!!

President George W. Bush has spoken repeatedly of a “Military Takeover In Case Of A Flu Outbreak.” (CNN October 4 & 5, 2005) and possible quarantine of the victims of bird flu! “I’m concerned about what an avian flu outbreak could mean for the United States and the world,” the President told reporters during a Rose Garden news conference.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 bans the military from participating in police-type activity on U.S. soil. It was enacted to prohibit the government from using the military to control or attack the citizens of its own country. Bush began discussing the possibility of changing or eliminating this law in the aftermath of the government’s sluggish response to civil unrest following Hurricane Katrina. If this is done, it would allow the government of the United States to use military troops against its own people (as was already done in the Waco tragedy).

Anyway, sorry to drone on and i know im up for debate but as you can probably see i haven't made up an exact viewpoint.. just throwing afew ideas around! I may have slipped up somewhere along the way so feel free to comment/argue any points!!

I think that regardless of original intent if there ever was one, a virus takes a life of it's own and if it ever were to become pandemic it would be the people that do ourselves in.

You ask how can dead livestock still carry live virus. Easy excrement. So long as the body is still warm a virus can maintain itself.

You can say conspiracy but I don't really think there is one.

Yes I think the government will luck out on this vaccine. But I also think that the bird flu is as bad, if not worse, than the media leads us to believe. I think it is a possibility that the government made coordinated this to become good for them. So yeah it's not exactly "made up" or "exaggerated" for the governments benefit. I think it was created as bad as it is for the government.

US Government =
....(exorcist government)
