Well as you can see on RSOE

a teal duck in illinois has tested positive for the Avian Influenza virus.

I'll be shocked if the mainstream media doesn't amp this up 10 fold. Do they know how the avian flue even reached over here?

Here is more detail on the situation.

Wild Green-winged Teal ducks in central Illinois have tested positive for a low-pathogenic strain of avian influenza, the government said on Friday. "Initial tests confirm that these wild duck samples do not contain the highly pathogenic H5N1 strain that has spread through birds in Asia, Europe and Africa," the Agriculture and Interior departments said in a statement. Five of 11 samples taken from the ducks tested positive for the H5 virus subtype and one contained the H5 and N1 subtypes, they said. The samples were sent to a federal laboratory in Ames, Iowa, for further testing of virus strains. The samples were collected on Sunday at the Rice Lake Conservation area in Fulton County, central Illinois. The ducks showed no signs of illness, which also indicates a low-risk strain of avian influenza.

Bold by me.

I don't know, RSOE is wierd because sometimes they pop up, but then it dissappears. For instance a while back I saw a chicken icon in Canada. There was supposedly bird flu in the Canadian Geese, but it wasn't positive, I suppose this one is.

Oh god, pleae don't give the media any more ideas.

I personally think that all this H5N1 stuff was aload of tripe anyway, just a way to keep us in our place.

Yeah, now spinach has Ecoli in it, Birds have the bird flu, Cows with Mad cow disease... what will be next? If you ask me it is blantanly obvious that all of these diseases were created by the nwo.

I'm thinking the NWO may be behind the "Peanut-Free Mars Bars" they are making now.

They must have their hands in everything.

Low-pathogenic H5N1 has been confirmed in the United States this year including in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Yahoo news

This testing also suggests, but has not yet confirmed, that this is low pathogenicity avian influenza.

Low pathogenicity avian influenza (LPAI) commonly occurs in wild birds, where it typically causes only minor symptoms or no noticeable symptoms. These strains of the virus are not a human health concern. This includes LPAI H5N1, commonly referred to as the North American H5N1. This strain of low pathogenicity avian influenza is very different from the more severe HPAI H5N1 circulating overseas, which is commonly referred to as the Asian H5N1.


WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2006 - The U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Interior today announced final test results, which confirm that an H5N1 avian influenza virus detected in fecal samples collected last month from resident wild mallard ducks in Maryland is a low pathogenic subtype. This strain has been detected several times in wild birds in North America and poses no threat to human health.


This is getting insane. H5N1 has been confirmed in several states. BUT they are saying that it's not the H5N1 we normaly think of, its an Avain influenza with H5 and N1. Low-pathogenic so there is no concern......................right.
