Let's hope this virus doesn't spread to the US. We would be so screwed if that happened.

Bad thing is here in Florida there talkiing about not spraying for mosquitos anymore due to cut backs because of the economy. And I believe the fruit fly and killer bees both came from south america here in the US. The standards were lower for imported products in south america and they came over in shipments from overseas then moved north.

that *snip*. is the government dumb because that is one thing that shouldn't be cut from the state's budget. If they wanted to save money end the war on drugs. end the war in iraq.

Whenever I hear about dengue my ears perk up.
Historically, it’s a real fave of the CIA…


Savannah, Georgia and Avon Park, Florida were the targets of repeated Army bio-weapons experiments in 1956 and 1957. Army CBW researchers released millions of mosquitoes on the two towns in order to test the ability of insects to carry and deliver yellow fever and dengue fever. Hundreds of residents fell ill, suffering from fevers, respiratory distress, stillbirths, encephalitis and typhoid. Army researchers disguised themselves as public health workers in order photograph and test the victims. Several deaths were reported.


So it took them a few years to really “understand” it, and then…


In 1981, Fidel Castro blamed an outbreak of dengue fever in Cuba on the CIA. The fever killed 188 people, including 88 children. In 1988, a Cuban exile leader named Eduardo Arocena admitted "bringing some germs" into Cuba in 1980.


Hey Mikey, they like it!


[In 1985] an epidemic of dengue fever struck Managua, Nicaragua. Nearly 50,000 people came down with the fever and dozens died. This was the first outbreak of the disease in Nicaragua. It occurred at the height of the CIA's war against the Sandinista government and followed a series of low-level "reconnaissance" flights over the capital city.


So the natural next question is…what is the link that could connect U.S. interest to Rio?
