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. www.gilead.com
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!!
