We now declare an H5N1 avian bird flu pandemic is underway in animals
Avian Influenza Mutation, H5N1 H5N1 is a type of avian influenza virus (bird flu virus) that has mutated through antigenic drift into dozens of highly pathogenic varieties. The first of these appeared in China in 1996 in birds and in Hong Kong in 1997 in Humans.
This infection of humans coincided with an epizootic (an epidemic in nonhumans) of H5N1 influenza in Hong Kong's poultry population. This panzootic (a disease affecting animals of many species esp. over a wide area outbreak was stopped by the killing of the entire domestic poultry population within the territory. The name H5N1 refers to the subtypes of surface antigens present on the virus: hemagglutinin type 5 and neuraminidase type 1.
Japan, Bangladesh battle new H5N1 outbreaks
More H5N1 avian influenza outbreaks at farms in Japan and Bangladesh have triggered fresh rounds of culling to control the spread of the disease, according to media reports. The outbreak in Japan hit a broiler chicken farm in Miyazaki prefecture, and 33,000 birds were culled yesterday, Kyodo News reported today. The outbreak is Miyazaki's 13th H5N1 eruption and pushes Japan's count of recent H5N1 outbreaks at farms to 22. In Bangladesh, livestock officials detected the H5N1 virus on a farm in Chittagong division's Noakhali district in the southeastern part of the country, after about 600 chickens died suddenly on Mar 1 and 2, bdnews24.com, a Dhaka-based news service, reported yesterday. The findings led to the culling of 6,500 birds on the farm on Mar 5. In other developments, Indian authorities are poised to begin culling birds at a government poultry farm in Tripura state after rapid tests detected an H5 virus, the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) reported yesterday. The tests were conducted after 400 of the farm's birds died suddenly. If further testing confirms the H5N1 virus, 7,000 birds will be destroyed, making it the second outbreak to hit Tripura state in recent weeks. The state, located in northeastern India, borders Bangladesh, which has reported several recent H5N1 outbreaks.
In Birds H5N1 Is Exploding
Animal health experts are expected to begin inspecting a number of poultry farms today after three wild swans tested positive for the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu.
Restrictions on the movement of captive birds are in place following the discovery of the dead swans on the Abbotsbury Swannery, an open reserve in the Chesil Beach area of Dorset, during routine surveillance.
Via Japan Today: 33,000 chickens culled after 13th case of bird flu in Miyazaki. Around 33,000 broiler chickens were culled Sunday at a poultry farm in the town of Kadogawa, Miyazaki Prefecture, after the 13th case of bird flu in the prefecture was confirmed the previous day, prefectural officials said. Sunday’s cull brought the total number of chickens slaughtered at poultry farms in the prefecture to around 990,000 since the first case of infection was confirmed in the city of Miyazaki

Perhaps I'm paranoid (although I do like this site, so draw your own conclusions) but it seems that there is just a massive level of manipulation going on in the world right now...
Skyrocketing prices in food, oil, and other commodities
Economic instability in what were once blue-chip, rock-solid markets and countries
Crazy and extreme weather
Civil unrest around the globe
... just so many of these things could be attributed to some form or button-pushing or another, and there are just too many things stacking up into the "perfect storm" scenario to be simply coincidence.
All of this towards what end? NWO? What will be left in order to press a new world order on humanity?
Maybe the Myans were on to something. It sure seems like events are linking up and building towards something rather catastrophic and life/world changing.

No offense, but have you followed the course of the H5N1 outbreaks these past two years?
I take it you didn't review the links.
This season's spread is quite remarkable for the extent and speed with which it's been moving.
I just think added to all the oil shocks, and crop damage, it needs to be kept in the forefront. there is no doubt whatsoever that food supplies are tight globally and the prices high and moving higher.
That may not bother you, but for those on the lower end of things, it is significant.

vote the bums out and make lobbing illegal
Once this virus hits the western part of the world, where we have already started producing some sort of vaccine to counter it and where most of the population will blow it off faster than the normal influenza season virus, most will have jumped on the fear wagon, gotten their free vaccines and the "Gummit" will be happy that their fear control test has worked once again.
