Rumsfeld made the most profit from swine flu in 1976 and bird flu in 2005. Potential profiteers of swine flu are Kleiner Perkins or Baxter.
Nobody has yet issued any official information about the origin of the new swine flu virus. Some media have recalled the bird flu epidemic in 2005 and early 2006. The only cure for the deadly disease was a drug called Tamiflu, which was produced by the Gilead Sciences pharmaceutical company, whose CEO happened to be Donald Rumsfeld from 1997 to 2001. He stepped down from the position after he took up office as the chief of the Pentagon in Bush’s administration. But he did not give up his shares in the company.
But Rumsfeld’s name was not just connected with the bird flu, but also with the swine flu in the United States in 1976. The story began when one soldier died in New Jersey from what experts believed to be an identical strain of the swine flu virus from 1918. At the time, Rumsfeld was Secretary of Defence and initiated swift action, convincing the people that the new administration would make sure that every man, woman and child in America are vaccinated. At that time the presidential campaign was underway and candidate Gerard Ford received additional support from this and became the president. The vaccine was produced and distributed across the country at lightning speed. The programme stopped just a month after the elections. The only problem was that the vaccine had been contaminated which resulted in hundreds of people becoming ill from it, while 52 people died.
GlaxoSmithKline, $274.8 million; MedImmune, $169.5 million; Novartis Vaccines & Diagnostics, $220.5 million; DynPort Vaccine, $41 million; and Solvay Pharmaceuticals, $298.6 million.
For me it doesnt add up, a country like France can't be that corrupt for gving its armed forces and key workers this vaccine. The virus isn't that deadly but obviously there is a sentiment of urgency that tells me that they probably know something we don't.

Firstly, I believe that this virus was engineered and released so the big pharma and other entities can fill their corrupt pockets.
So why are many other governments pushing health service and military personel to take the shot?

I am in the US Military and I was "given" the Swine Flu Vaccine last week. Let's just say I was able to make it look like I got the vaccine, but I actually didn't. There was a lot of hesitation by people in my command to get this, and quite a few people requested to not receive it. We were all quickly declined, but that's more on the senior leadership being hard headed.
