5 days to level 5...

How long before this goes to level 6?

We know that level 6 means Martial Law, yet if it is a greater threat in one country and less in yet another, then do we all get placed in the same category when WHO calls it at level 6?

I would imagine that part of 6 would be the innoculations and quarentining,and or house to house disenfection to thwart off reoccurance..That is if the death rate spikes pretty bad

Here we go! Now we will see a mandatory vaccine plan - worldwide!

Soo! do we gonna take the NWO needle in a few months? or do we run to the hills?


No we will NOT!

Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*


Ok any news from Russia or China seriously?

Im scared to death, Im sick my wife is sick a friend is sick and I have 3 kids in public school, and this is in our schools and is spreading like wildfire and there seems to be no hope in containing this. The msm has not mentioned this flu is in our area, but it's my opinion that it might be.


Serious question here: What are you feeling outside of any normal flu symptoms? Not that you have the swine, but does something other than the news out there seem different about the illness you feel?

If you were confirmed a swine victim, do you feel the measures taken are necessary or overblown?

Yep and I read my states (New york) Throughly. Martial Law is in there

www.health.state.ny.us...

From page 8


e. Governor May Order the Organized Militia into Service of the State
Authority: Military Law 6(1) provides that the Governor shall have power, in case of
disaster, to order the organized militia into the active service of the State for such period,
to such extent, and in such manner as he may deem necessary. Pursuant to Military Law
9, whenever the organized militia is employed under Military Law 6, the Governor may
by proclamation declare the county or city in which the troops are serving to be under
martial rule, if in the Governor’s judgment the maintenance of law and order will
thereby be promoted. Martial rule is subject to the Federal and State Constitutions and is
governed by the Code of Military Justice. See Military Law Article VII.


I am outt of here.....

Time for me to activate my emergency plans and pack my Hiking backpacks with all my provisions and Respirators... Good luck to everyone and your families....

Here's a piece that just surfaced on the WHO's panademic levels.


How WHO measures a pandemic

The World Health Organization has six phases of pandemic alert to assess the potential for a new global flu outbreak.

— Phase 1. There are no viruses circulating in animals that have been reported to cause infections in humans.

— Phase 2. An animal flu virus has caused infections in humans in the past and is considered to be a potential pandemic threat.



so we have just reached phase 5..


— Phase 5. The virus has spread into at least two countries and is causing even bigger outbreaks.

— Phase 6. More outbreaks in at least two regions of the world; the pandemic is under way.


From the looks of this article's info, it wouldn't be a stretch to think we are not too far from phase 6.

North America = region 1, Europe = region 2? sound about right?

Chan just stated the pattern of human to human infection in both Mexico and NY is what pushed it to level 5.

No immunities sounds like everyone is going to get this that is exposed to it. I didn't get the doctors name it was just on cnn, if anyone wants it I will go and look for it.

I think what they are worried about is the prospect of future mutations. I don't like at all the way this is going. Not at all.

Hmmm, WHO speaking to the World right now, raising the level, and Oh, how Nice, President Obama, is on tv tonight. Talk about a story just taking off. Obama, may be making a declaration tonight as well..


anyhow, she is saying they are raising it to level 5, because the virus, is evolving, in otherwards they see something coming, and want to be very prepared for it. In the Military one of the first things we are taught in leadership, is when you have time before a stressful situation is to come, prepare..

does anybody think that they have some real numbers and are holding back until people are found dead in the streets. i mean i understand, about the transmission and all the other stuff, but to raise the level up twice in 2 days, thats just kinda strange.

and still no answers on the confrimed cases, other than the standard party line"responding well" or mild".
i want to know about those confrimed cases, whats is just a butt kickin flu or are they fighting for thier lives
