MOSCOW -- For a decade, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting the U.S. will fall apart in 2010. For most of that time, he admits, few took his argument -- that an economic and moral collapse will trigger a civil war and the eventual breakup of the U.S. -- very seriously. Now he's found an eager audience: Russian state media.

CDC: Now fewer US swine flu cases linked to Mexico
Published: May 7, 2009
ATLANTA (AP) - A U.S. health official says now only about 10 percent of the Americans who got swine flu had traveled to Mexico and likely picked up the infection there. Most got the bug at home.
That’s a change from over the weekend when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said about a third of the U.S. cases at that point were people who had been to Mexico, where the outbreak began.
The CDC’s acting chief, Dr. Richard Besser, said Thursday that there are now nearly 900 confirmed cases. He says the ongoing spread within the U.S. borders explains why a shrinking proportion of cases are people who traveled to Mexico.
The ages of those who got swine flu now range from 1 month to 87.

Flu from animals an ongoing threat - reports
Thu May 7, 2009 4:00pm EDT
* New virus has many genetic mutations
* Infection causes unusual symptoms in some people
* New mixtures likely inevitable
WASHINGTON, May 7 (Reuters) - Influenza viruses from animals are an ongoing threat and doctors need to keep a lookout for them, scientists reported on Thursday.
The first batch of formal reports looking at the current outbreak of a new kind of swine flu virus shows it is a Frankenstein-like mixture of viruses, including a so-called "triple reassortent" virus with swine, human and bird elements that has been circulating since at least 1998.
And such mixtures are likely to occur in the future, and infect people, the researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Looks like Hx3_1963 named this flu with such accuracy!
Swine Flu outbreak in North America was ominously predicted back in 2005
During the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) Summit in Montebello, Canada in 2005, the “three amigos” (Bush, Harper and Calderon) released “North American Plan for Avian and Pandemic Influenza,” described as a “collaborative North American approach that recognizes that controlling the spread of avian influenza or a novel strain of human influenza, with minimal economic disruption, is in the best interest of all three countries.” The plan outlines how “Canada, Mexico and the United States intend to work together to prepare for and manage avian and pandemic influenza.”
It was hardly a coincidence that at the same time the U.S. Northern Command, or NORTHCOM, created a webpage dedicated to avian flu and subsequently ran exercises in preparation for the possible use of U.S. military forces in a continental domestic emergency involving avian flu or pandemic influenza.........
..........Ki-moon, the United Nations, and the ‘Globalists‘, with the participation of the globalist-dominated corporate media and the ruling elite in Mexico, are hyping the flu outbreak as a possible pandemic in order to sell us their scheme for world government.
It is an ongoing process.

could alleviate many of the symptoms and harmful effects of the H5N1 bird flu
WINNIPEG — Local scientists expect to have a vaccine "seed" ready in the next few weeks -- a sign that H1N1 vaccine will be ready by fall.
Dr. Frank Plummer, scientific director of the Winnipeg-based National Microbiology Lab, said scientists are rushing to develop the vaccine so it's ready to be rolled out in time for annual flu season. Changes in influenza viruses are difficult to predict, but Plummer said he thinks the future vaccine will protect against the current strain.
