With the WHO declaring a pandemic and the media MSM gobbling it up like it's the end of the world, you have to wonder why.

With all the events going on lately

  • N. Korea and its nukes
  • Economic problems and oddities
  • Climate things like earthquakes and tsunamis
  • Plane crashings

and a ton of others...

Is the WHO trying to distract the world's attention away from some other event going on in the world (list above) or is there something more sinister afoot with this flu?

Is the swine flu more dangerous than we were lead to believe or is it no worse than the common cold?

Is there an agenda behind this to get populations vaccinated?

It could be anything but there is something to it!

Ok good point but the fact is pandemic doesn't mean anything about killing people.
It just means spreading ability.
We have 24/7 365 days a year pandemics already.
They are called influenza, common cold, obesity, diabetes, heart disease etc etc.
The WHO just like to get some attention now and then you see.
Its fairly boring eating only salads every single day and exercising for 8 hours a day you see.

I think the WHO fears another 1918 on their hands. If H1N1 goes crazy this fall, they can look back and say, we told you so. Better to do that than be caught with your pants down.

Canada prepares for H1N1 WHO pandemic

Most indications suggest the virus is on the decline, after peaking last month. But health officials are preparing for a resurgence in the fall.

Some experts say the WHO's made an unnecessary move to declare H1N1 a pandemic and it will only cause a panic.

"Moving is irresponsible. It's based on a technicality," Ontario public-health physician Richard Schabas told CTV News Channel Thursday.

"Going to level six is not based on good science . . . We're seeing far too mild (conditions) and infections are far too low."

He says that if H1N1 fizzles it will undermine the public's confidence in the WHO's flu system.

WHO declaration does not mean virus more dangerous

Canada has confirmed 2,978 cases of swine flu, most of them mild. Four people have died and another 138 have been hospitalized.

The Public Health Agency's website says the common flu sends about 20,000 Canadians to hospital each year. Between 4,000 and 8,000 Canadians die of influenza and its complications annually, depending on the severity of the season.

If the virus is not that deadly then perhaps this is another scare tactic designed to generate millions towards the drug companies?
