Not even in the health section.

Amazing....I mean, think back to a few months ago when they were hyping up the swine flu like crazy. You would think that THIS development would be all over the news.

Think about SARS a few years ago....remember how they were all over that in Japan?

I cannot believe there is NO coverage of Ukraine right now. Makes me think that a blackout has been ordered....

There is an anti=panic in place in all media news rooms. This is enforced by the White House. Also alot of people are so saturated with the swine flu obsession that many will laugh and do nothing... This is why a pandemic will be really big sooner or later.

A Polish member reporting, on his/her national radio, that many are escaping Ukraine and fleeing to Poland. Hospitals are allegedly turning patients away.

OK, so why did this virus get released in Ukraine? Perhaps because of this:




Ukraine is one of the largest countries in Europe, with 46 million people, and serves as a vital transportation point for natural gas from Russia.

Despite its deepening economic crisis, Ukraine has had no finance minister since February 2009. It also has no foreign minister or defense minister. The transportation minister just stepped down. The interior minister has offered to resign as well, after being accused of drunken behavior.

The deadlock has led the major European nations to voice growing alarm that Ukraine is incapable of dealing with its disintegrating economy.

They fear that an economic collapse in Ukraine could reverberate throughout the former Soviet bloc and beyond.

Bingo? This could be exacly whats needed to push Ukraine over the edge. The US economy is pretty much set up to crash whenever they want it to. Perhaps the Sovjet bloc and Europe is next.

And I bet they dont like this either:



Whatever the discord, Ukraine is more free than most former Soviet republics, with a relatively uncontrolled news media and a far less repressive security apparatus.


Problem, Crisis, Solution...

Ive been reading this from page one, Asen, my prayers and thoughts for you and whomever in the country experiancing this.....now, I remembered watching a documentry awhile back on the 1918 influenza epidemic and watched it again a bit ago, there is a Virologist named Professor John Oxford. He has for years been studying the previous influenzas saying there had to have been a precursor to the 1918 flu, He found one man in France who, in 1916, had the hemorragic reaction before the 1918 outbreak. I looked the Professor up online and found his address, now since anyone can look this up, I feel I can post this here....also, since he is a Virologist AND in London, maybe somehow this story can be sent across to the western MSM???

There is definately something wrong with the western media. Usually everybody tries to jump onto a story like that. Maybe there are restrictions in the US due to the national emergency plan that is in place since a week. But this does not explain why everybody else keeps quiet.


I am really at a loss to explain this. I am in Canada, not the US, and yet there has been absolutely not one single word about this on the CBC website.

It would appear that the BBC, CBC and all mainstream media in the US are in lockstep shutdown on this one. It looks like a coordinated effort.

This is really strange in that Canada has millions of people with Ukrainian heritage. The CBC should have been all over this. Two emails and I have yet to get an answer from them. Something more than fishy. It can't help but make one more worried about what the truth is behind all this.

Financial Times have an article up about this situation. They also have another article with today's date on it about The Ukraine: here.


IMF warns Ukraine on aid

The International Monetary Fund has warned that it could cut financial assistance to Ukraine, one of the world’s most recession hit economies, after the country veered “off track” by adopting populist wage and pension increases.

The warning came after Viktor Yushchenko, Ukraine’s president, on Friday signed the increases into law, ignoring warnings from the IMF and Yulia Tymoshenko, his prime minister and bitter rival. The standoff is rooted in a rivalry between Ukraine’s political leaders ahead of a hotly contested presidential election to be held in January.

Fears loom that such cut-throat rivalries could plunge Ukraine, a country where European banks hold a 40 per cent market share and where the west has jostled with Russia for influence, into a financial meltdown ahead of the elections.



Interesting timing or interesting tiding?

This might have been posted but just in-case:



05:39 p.m. Doctors are calling on citizens not to vaccinate against influenza, because such vaccination in the midst of the epidemic may injure the health, coordinator of epidemic influenza in Lviv Miron Borysevich claimed at a press conference, proUA.com reports.

"When an outbreak of influenza begins, nobody is being vaccinated. From the point of view of epidemiology this can not be done because it is harmful. It may harm the patient," - he said.

At the same time, doctors advise not to communicate with people who are sick. If you have to contact with sick people, use flu masks.

A closed meeting has been held in Ivano-Frankivsk, at which participants agreed that epidemic of the so-called "pneumonic plague" is being spread throughout Ukraine. But the problem is its form is unknown, it is ATYPICAL nobody knows how to treat it.

PNEUMONIC PLAGUE has an acute course than other forms, over and is accompanied by a very high mortality rate. The incubation period of primary pneumonic plague rarely exceeds more than 1-4 days. It begins, as a rule, suddenly - with shivering, fever, headache, myalgia, weakness, nausea. The symptoms of pneumonia - cough with phlegm, chest pain, shortness of breath - usually appear on the second day of the disease. Blood spitting, growing respiratory disorders, heart failure, respiratory failure, shock are being observed. In primary pneumonic plague phlegm usually is watery or mucinous, foamy, with blood or visibly bloody.

A secondary pneumonic plague occurs as interstitial pneumonia. Phlegm is scanty and more dense and viscous than in primary pulmonary plague. It is believed that in this regard, patients are less contagious.

The Minister of Health of Ukraine Vasily Knjazevich: Ministry of Health plans to declare quarantine in all territory of Ukraine.

www.vesti.ru...

Comment: It seems that this outbreak is unstoppable in Ukraine. The last hope is to block all movement across the international borders of Ukraine. Russia and Belarus have already done this. However, EU countries are still waiting for the decision of some bureaucrats in Brussels until it may be too late ...

Oh, it is too late for the European Union. The virus has probably spread into Poland (we need to monitor the situation)

I also tried the link to youtube and got an apache server "error 400" message. So I tried to get into youtube by google. Still the same message.

Sooooo... Fast fix (if you have Firefox):

left click "History" on browser top line,

left click "Show all History"

left click "Organize"

If you have the latest version it will select all. If you don't,

left click "Select all"

left click "Organize" again

left click "Delete"

If you have the latest version, after the first click on "Organize" just click "Delete".

The video should now load and play.


Try it and let me know if it works.

Regards,

Mike
