The government is planning on moving a lab on an island that contains hoof and mouth disease - a highly contageous disease that could wipe out large
numbers of food animals - onto the mainland.
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is likely to move its research on one of the most contagious animal diseases from an isolated island laboratory
to the U.S. mainland near herds of livestock, raising concerns about a catastrophic outbreak.
Skeptical Democrats in Congress are demanding to see internal documents they believe highlight the risks and consequences of the decision. An epidemic
of the disease, foot and mouth, which only affects animals, could devastate the livestock industry.
One such government report, produced last year and already turned over to lawmakers by the Homeland Security Department, combined commercial satellite
images and federal farm data to show the proximity to livestock herds of locations that have been considered for the new lab. "Would an accidental
laboratory release at these locations have the potential to affect nearby livestock?" asked the nine-page document. It did not directly answer the
A simulated outbreak of the disease — part of an earlier U.S. government exercise called "Crimson Sky" — ended with fictional riots in the
streets after the simulation's National Guardsmen were ordered to kill tens of millions of farm animals, so many that troops ran out of bullets. In
the exercise, the government said it would have been forced to dig a ditch in Kansas 25 miles long to bury carcasses. In the simulation, protests
broke out in some cities amid food shortages.

As usual, the Bush Administration has no concern whatsoever for the health and welfare of the American public.
So what happens if Foot and Mouth spreads and large numbers of food animals are inedible? Especially given the current food crises brought on by
increasing demand in China and India, food redirected to ethanol production, and general all over decline in the dollar as an economic asset?
Could this be a NWO plot to cull the masses to ensure positive survival for the elites?
