Operations Room Activated To Monitor Swine Flu
Is the New Strain of Swine Flu a Bio-Terror Attack?
In a discussion this morning with a cell biologist and medical doctor working at Johns Hopkins, my friend thought this 4-part flu combination is highly unusual and looks like it could be man-made.
Especially because it has an avian strain. My doctor friend (he's Taiwanese) explained that in Asia, it's common for a avian-swine-human flu to happen naturally, but this virus first showed up in Mexico, where pigs and ducks are not usually raised together.
Also, recombination of more than 2-different flu viruses is extremely rare. I'm just repeating what he said as an expert in the field. He says the CDC needs to explain if there is a possibility that we are under a bio-weapon attack.

Have anyone besides Mexicans died from this? There seem to be a lot of cases popping up and just resolving themselves but Mexicans are dropping like flies. How can this NOT be man-made? I mean, germs are probably the most egalitarian force on the planet. They don't care if you're black or white, Republican or Democrat, etc.
Why are ONLY Mexicans dying from this? There are plenty of unhygienic people all over the world, even here in good ol' U.S. of A. There are plenty of poor, uninsured people in lots of countries. Even with insurance, there are people who won't go to a doctor when they're sick.
Why only Mexicans?

I'm American, and I don't believe it is terrorism. Just the world taking care of itself and shedding humans like a bad case of fleas.
81 dead in Mexico as flu emergency goes global
Mexican officials are asking residents to refrain from kissing as a greeting and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other amid concern over swine flu infection. Eighty-one deaths in Mexico are "likely linked" to the virus. In the U.S., 11 swine flu cases have been confirmed; and in New Zealand, 22 students and three teachers who traveled to Mexico may have been infected. full story

IMHO, if Mexico is under reporting the rate of infection, and death with this flu, the rest of the world needs to take that country over.
