The Plague kills 40 Al-Qaeda


Now al-Qaeda chiefs fear the plague has been passed to other terror cells — or Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

My emphasis.

How does this source know what 'Al-Quada Chiefs' fear?

Propaganda...plain and simple...

From the Sun, so this may not be accurate, but thought I'd post it.

If true, do you think this was this intentional biological warfare, used by US covert op forces, or just a really weird coincidence?

How often does the plague show up now a days anyway?

Sounds pretty uncommon from what I see

I would suspect biological warfare unless its popping up other places also.
If its just turning up in insurgent camps it was no accident.

Finally. Some good news about Al Qaeda. Hopefully, it has spread from cell to cell. Wonder how that happened . . .

If true, I'd like to think of it as the hand of God.

In all seriousness though it is comical how the first response is it must be them dirty americans. The obvious reason would be the terrorists got a hold of some biological warfare and being on the technological level of a tadpole they infected themselves through mishandling the material.

Al Qaeda = cia database
the sun = tabloid crap

you work out the rest.

Well biological warfare is plausible, hostile targets, somewhere out of the way and without risk of it spreading. However, because of the location it's just as likely to be a natural outbreak. I suppose we'll never know, unless this suddenly starts killing off other forces hostile to America.

Wow, did it maybe accure to you that maybe just maybe the al-qaeda got their hands on it to use as a weapon against us and it just got away from them. Hmmmm? Though it does please me greatly that these dirtbags got. Hope they suffered

Maybe they are stinking dogs that live in rat feces and inhale rat feces dust all day? I don't think they have MetLife.

AHA! I knew if I gave it 15 minutes it would pop up! I'm just glad it wasn't from a fanatic!

I held off posting because I knew if I gave it time, someone would mention it. To tell you the truth, when I first clicked the link, I was expecting the first post to be something along the lines of "It's happening! The seal has been opened!" (now that I mentioned it, I wonder if I may have set a fuse... sorry)

AAHHH!!! YOU TOO!



My first thought when reading the article was the same as above... biowar. I instantly thought of crusaders catapulting plague infested bodies over castle walls. From pics that I've seen of the living standards of alot of these groups, I wouldn't be surprised if it was 100% natural occurrence. It only takes a couple plagued fleas to start the mess.


en.wikipedia.org...

Bubonic plague is the best-known manifestation of the bacterial disease plague, caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis (formerly known as Pasteurella pestis). Bubonic plague is often used synonymously for plague, but it does in fact refer specifically to an infection that enters through the skin and travels through the lymphatics, as is often seen in flea-borne infections. Bubonic Plague kills about 50% of infected patients in 4-7 days without treatment. The Bubonic plague is believed by many to be the Black Death that swept through Europe in the 1340s.
----

The bubonic plague is an infection of the lymphatic system, usually resulting from the bite of an infected flea. The fleas are often found on rodents, such as rats, and seek out other prey when their rodent hosts die. Once established, bacteria rapidly spread to the lymph nodes and multiply. Yersinia pestis can resist phagocytosis and even reproduce inside phagocytes and kill them. As the disease progresses, the lymph nodes can hemorrhage and become necrotic. Bubonic plague can progress to lethal septicemic plague in some cases.


en.wikipedia.org...

Pneumonic plague is the most virulent and least common form of plague, caused by the bacterium yersinia pestis. Typically, pneumonic form is due to a secondary spread from advanced infection of an initial bubonic form. Primary pneumonic plague results from inhalation of aerosolized infective droplets and can be transmitted from human to human without involvement of fleas or animals. Untreated pneumonic plague has a very high case-fatality ratio.


en.wikipedia.org...

The disease can result from bubonic and pneumonic plague when bacteria enter the blood from the lymphatic and respiratory systems, respectively. Like other forms of gram-negative sepsis, septicemic plague can cause disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and is frequently fatal.


Sucks to be them... normally I would say I hope they eradicate it soon, but I would be lying. I'm American. If someone wishes me harm, am I supposed to wish them health when they get sick? I don't wish them dead, honestly, but as the saying goes "I wouldn't ##ss on you if you were on fire!"... and that's just because they would do alot worse to me, given the chance, and not just by hoping I become a victim of nature.

Only 40? that's it? Oh well better luck next time plague! A for effort though
wonder if this is some kind of biological warfare, I don't know how to call it other then too bad bad it didn't take out more of those terrorists.

I doubt it is a form of bio attack by western agents. Plague isn't particulary deadly these days, anti-biotics take care of it easily and it takes a while to take hold and kill a person, almost a week in most cases. It's not even 100% fatal, even in the Middle Ages the fatality rate was pretty low, at about 50%.

If you wanted to wipe them out, a 2,000Lb bomb in the middle of the camp would much more effective. If you really wanted to inflict a bio-weapon on them, there are much better diseases to use.

sometimes nature plays it's dirty little tricks on the world, and sometimes there is a helping hand.
some will jump to the conclusion that this is a biological weapon being tested.
Now a cave dwelling terrorist may have gotten hold of some viruses and thought they would experiment, or they had it delivered from a source that may have the ability to modify viruses and see if they could target specific people.
Truth is we will never know, we are kept in the dark more about these things than we care to believe, even if it was nature or man made people will in their own mind come to what ever conclusion suits their belief.

That's great news, looks like there's not going to be 70 virgins waiting for them.

Perhaps they were testing it on their own "troops".

A good way to see the effectiveness of the strain.. release it on your own unsuspecting men.

Or.. it could have just been Karma.

Um.

The Plague surfaces all the time in third world countries. Usually it hits in crowded, unclean areas with no medical care. You know, exactly the kind of place that Al Qaeda operatives live.

No seals have been opened. This particular seal never closed.

It's more than likely the result of living in crappy conditions. North Africa is prone to Plague in the wild animal population anyway, so living in some crap filled camp, no doubt with rats about is likely to expose you at some point.
