Two Mutations Can Transform A Swine Flu Virus

September 12, 2012 by legitgov

Two Mutations Can Transform A Swine Flu Virus 11 Sep 2012 Scientists [authors of a report published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences] detail how a swine flu virus currently circulating in Korea - without apparently making the pigs sick - quickly changed into a deadly flu virus when it was put into ferrets. Once in ferrets, the virus acquired two new mutations that somehow conferred unusual virulence. Infected ferrets died within 10 days and transmitted the virus easily to other animals in respiratory droplets. The mutations occurred in all three ferrets infected with the Korean pig virus. [Yes, and I'm sure they're busy little bees *making it happen* so the pharma-terrorists can make a killing on the vaccines.]

Heck, al-CIAduh is on the US payroll!] 11 Sep 2012 While we reflect on the 11th anniversary of the al Qaeda attacks on American soil, there is a blinding light that may obscure our view: this sworn enemy now fights hand in hand with the US against the Syrian regime [sic - government]. The historic State of the Union address by US president [sic] George W. Bush on September 20, 2001 is loaded with morals and principles about good and evil. The president's ultimatum was clear: either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. In Syria, there is mounting evidence that Al Qaeda and its allies are actively deploying terror tactics and suicide bombers to overthrow the Assad regime.

U.S. Missile Defense Strategy Is Flawed, Expert Panel Finds

U.S. Missile Defense Strategy Is Flawed, Expert Panel Finds 12 Sep 2012 After two years of study, a panel of top scientists and military experts working for the National Research Council has concluded that the nation's protections against missile attack suffer from major shortcomings, leaving the United States vulnerable to long-range strikes. In a report, the panel suggested that President Obama shift course and expand a system inherited from President [sic] George W. Bush, setting aside parts of an antimissile strategy he initiated in 2009. Since the 1980s, when President Ronald Reagan began the modern hunt for defenses against long-range missiles, Washington has spent more than $200 billion devising ways to zap incoming enemy warheads that move at speeds in excess of four miles per second turn the US Treasury over to defense contractors.
