1. Why weaponize something you yourself wouldnt be protected from?
2. What about all those other pandemics? Were they man made too? If not, why are so many people so sure this one is?
3. Scientists for the past 20 years have been saying we are long overdue for a pandemic. It was bound to happen at some point and is purely the doing of mother nature.
Yes, I agree that this is a possibility. I for one could see a drug company spreading this flu type out so they could either create a vaccine or sell more tamiflu. Dont think old Rummy's behind it though. He has plenty of money and even if tamiflu orders went through the roof the royalties that Gilead Sciences gets from the sale are a lot less then times past. Plus he has no say in what the company does seeing he is just a shareholder now. So maybe he makes a couple of million if the stock goes up 2-5 bucks. Hardly worths someones time who is already worth anywhere from 54-175 million dollars. I however disagree with the notion that the government is behind this and is doing this to kill off millions. That was the main point of my post. Conspiracy for a drug company to make millions, i'll bite. Even though those drug companies are doing fine and really dont need to cause a pandemic. Conspiracy for the NWO to depopulate, I don't buy. Not even sort of.
A lot of people are saying it’s possible that both in the past and now the virus(s) in question were concocted in a lab and then dispatched with the intention of creating a pandemic. If you're intellectually honest, you must admit that this is possible (however unlikely you may think it to be).

Well if it was engineered then the engineers could quite easily protect themselves so long as every time they made a public appearance they wore full protective regalia including those far out looking gas masks etc.
Also, once a virus has been created so too can the vaccine to target it so they could have already had a vaccine to hand for personal use prior to releasing the virus..?
the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reports that this strain has not been isolated in pigs. It passes with apparent ease from human to human, an ability attributed to an as-yet unidentified mutation
Swine Flu is Evolution in Action
Each time another person is infected, the new strain of the virus can grab more genes and mutate further

Unfortunately people do not usually react in a cooperative manner when it comes to inoculations, and rightly so. It will take a few deaths to get you to step up to the plate for your shot or pill or whatever they come up with, and TPTB know it.
What we are witnessing now is the conditioning needed to make it all easy...Roche, Gilead and Rumsfeld reaching into the pockets of various countries and passing out the calm that only Tamiflu can offer. Fear can move whole nations.
Just think of the profit that the vaccine can muster.
At any given time people can make fortunes off all different kinds of scenarios. War, Pandemics, Earthquakes, Floods, Hurricanes, etc. Heck, my friend owns a hurricane shutter business and when 2 hurricanes skimmed past my home town he made a ton of money. Pretty sure he didnt manufacture those hurricanes. People made billions when the housing market collapsed. They bet it would, but they didnt cause it.
the fact that vaccine manufacturers could make a fortune from a good pandemic scare
