I just want to bring up a couple of points here.

First i want to restate that certain county employees (Cook county, Chicago is in Cook county) were given questionaires over two weeks ago asking them if the need to be vaccinated were to arise how many people were in there household that would need a vaccine.

Next we have an audio (that Burntheships was kind enough to repost for me) of a county official in Indiana ( from a county close to Chicago)describing wierd questions that he had been asked, for example how many bodies could his area handle in an emergency situation.

Now just combine those two pieces of information and add that Chicago as of this morning all of a sudden has 9 suspected cases and one school closing, and Indiana has one confirmed case.

Edit to add;
Hi i've already posted these posts on another thread, i'm not sure if any of this has been posted here yet, i'm going to repost on these thread as was suggested by another member

Now i'd like to bring up something else again.

We have repeatedly been told that the number of cases in Mexico are very high and we were also told that there were 16 comfirmed deaths from the flu in mexico.

On Friday the 24th mexican officials confirmed 20 deaths due to swine flu with another 48 suspected cases.

www.earthtimes.org...

But now we hear from the WHO that Mexico in fact has only 26 confirmed cases with only 7 deaths


As a matter of fact the WHO says that America has 91 (over three times the amount of Mexico) confirmed cases with one death, this is an update from 8 o'clock tonight.

www.who.int...


Now i wanna know what's goin on here. They were scarin the crap out of us telling us how many people were sick and dying from this in Mexico, and now all of the sudden they seem to be playing down the numbers


So which is it, is it really bad in mexico, or were they just trying to scare us ? Somebody is lying to us about something.

I hope nobedy takes this the wrong way, but why are they saying that the US has one death? That poor little baby that died is not from the US he is from mexico and came here with his family to visit relatives.

www.nytimes.com...

Please remember that the article also states “He was critically ill on arrival,” Dr. Jeffrey R. Starke, the director of infection control at the hospital, said.

"The child died on Monday, his lungs full of fluid. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed he had been suffering from swine flu early Wednesday morning."

They've been telling us that they are working on a vaccine , but it will take at least three months.

Now i've noticed since yesterday they are starting to say that it is common for a new strain of flu to pop up at the end of the flu season, and disappear during the summer months only to come back when the new flu season starts up.

Isn't this new story mighty convienient for them ? First scare us to death with the thought of a pandemic of a new deadly strain of flu, and then say oh but you need not worry it'll die down during the summer and be thoughtful enough to give us just enough time to create a vaccine


Kinda sounds like this may be the dry run.

Put all the pieces together and it seems like the perfect scenario to get people to beg for this miracle vaccine come the next flu season.

I will not be taking that vaccine.

Let me just take a minute to throw this in. I don't know what the rest of the US is being told, but here in Chicago we are now being told that if we start displaying the symptoms of the flu that we should NOT go to the hospital
We should stay in our house and seek out our own doctor.

Doesn't make sense to me it's so dangerous, risk of pandemic, but just stay home and help yourself, kind of contradictory if you ask me especially since the acting head of the CDC stated that he fully expects to see deaths here from this flu.

Ok now this flu is supposed to be a new strain, deadly mixture of human, avian, and three swine strains right.

Remember my previous post i asked you to remember that the little boy that died in Texas died because his lungs were filled with fluid, well that's what the victims in Mexico are dying from, severe pnuemonia believed to be caused by swine flu.

They say the other odd thing about this flu is that it effects young healthy people, the human flu usually kills infants and the elderly with weak immune systems.

dsc.discovery.com...


Now read about the 1918 pandemic commonly referred to as the "Spanish Flu"

en.wikipedia.org...

"Most of its victims were healthy young adults, in contrast to most influenza outbreaks which predominantly affect juvenile, elderly, or otherwise weakened patients. The pandemic lasted from March 1918 to June 1920"

"The majority of deaths were from bacterial pneumonia, a secondary infection caused by influenza, but the virus also killed people directly, causing massive hemorrhages and edema in the lung."


"In others, the flu caused frequent loss of bowel control and the victim would die from losing critical intestinal lining and blood loss,"

There was referrence made to the victims in Mexico having extreme vomiting and diarhea.



"Among the conclusions of this research is that the virus kills via a cytokine storm (overreaction of the body's immune system) which explains its unusually severe nature and the concentrated age profile of its victims. The strong immune systems of young adults ravaged the body, whereas the weaker immune systems of children and middle-aged adults caused fewer deaths."


It uses your own immune system against you ?!


The pandemic of 1918 was caused by Influenza type A strain, subtype H1N1.

The similarities are just a little too much for me. Are we really being hit with a new super flu with many different strains combined in it, or is this just the same "Spanish Flu" from 1918 ?


"Scientists have used tissue samples from frozen victims to reproduce the virus for study. Given the strain's extreme virulence there has been controversy regarding the wisdom of such research."

Frozen victims


They've been reproducing the virus
Why
