I'm sorry guys about jumping in here without reading but one or two posts and the headline. I was in a Millitary thread just a minte ago and a member
posted a link to the US Northern Command's web site and I saw something that struck me as odd. The home page has a link to AVIAN flu information!
I thought we had a SWINE flu pandemic? Am I way off in thinking this is like a huge screw up on someone's part? Is this just an old page that no
one's updated? Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions but it struck me as odd.
I'm going to give the link for the home page. Once you get there click on the AVIAN flu link on the left. Maybe they know something we don't.
