WHO: Cholera outbreak in Iraq spreading

GENEVA - A cholera outbreak in Iraq is spreading, the World Health Organization said Tuesday, with new cases confirmed in Baghdad, Basra and for the first time three northern districts.

The number of confirmed cases has now reached 2,116, WHO said. Just a day earlier a WHO official put the number of confirmed cases at 1,652. Eleven people have died of the disease so far.

Just another sign that things are far from improving in Iraq. Cholera is cause by poor hygenic conditions and tainted water. '30,000 people have fallen ill with acute watery diarrhea" which is a usualy government spin when they do not want to use the 'C" word. Its pretty clear that Iraq is past the point of no return here. The question is when are the people pulling the strings going to realize it.

Grabbing land is what they are doing. The oil is a factor, but not the major one. The real prize was the stuff in the basement of the museum over there, the gold and control of certain areas in that region. The coincidences between that areas place in known history and current events bring me to this conclusion.

Never trust the WHO. They are probably the ones proliferating the disease.

I wouldnt go as far as saying the WHO are proliferating the outbreak, as its caused by environmental factors, but they are certainly not making it any better.

Anyways, we saw this same problem during and after the first Gulf War, we saw it in Yugoslavia, and we saw it in countless other conflicts where stratiegic bombing targeted water supplies and sewage systems; in effect, commiting baterialogical warfare.

I won't be surprised when typhoid feaver strikes the remaining civilian population.
