bird flu, hurricane Rita, Cindy whatever and SciFi Friday...

Just so you know... 15 subtypes of Influenza A virus (aka avian flu) are known to be circulating in bird populations. Many forms of avian flu virus cause only mild symptoms in the birds, or no symptoms at all. However, some of the viruses produce a highly contagious and rapidly fatal disease, leading to severe epidemics, such as the H5N1 strain currently spreading at lightning speed around the world.

These virulent viruses are known as "highly pathogenic avian influenza" and are cause for concern. My latest article on the subject of bird flu paints a pretty chilling picture of where this nasty little virus could be heading.

Speaking of nasty pictures, have you been watching the pounding path of hurricane Rita? She's out to do some major damage down in the USA Gulf Coast area. Flooding has already returned to portions of New Orleans as the first bands of wind and rain from hurricane Rita start pummelling the northern coastline. I hope everyone manages to escape her wrath...

Meanwhile, over in the other Gulf -- I'm talking about the war on terror area of current events -- there's some disturbing news afoot. Did you notice how President Bush seemed to be a bit "rattled" when he first started his "meet the press" interview yesterday? Maybe the news from the Gulf region had something to do with it.

Read this from ‘Is Iran preparing for a US war?’

After reading that particular news item -- direct from the Middle East -- I'm starting to smell a "set up" here... where the USA is being set up for a BIG FALL at the hands of certain governments (and murdering scum-of-the-earth terrorists).

In my humble opinion, Cindy Whatever (her last name doesn't matter to me since she's earned a certain degree of my contempt of late) and her group are ready and willing "pawns" [read: self-important idiots who can't see beyond their own agenda] falling ever-so-eagerly into their carefully laid plans.

When you stand back and look at the BIG picture emerging around the globe, it's all starting to sound like a science fiction series that would probably do extremely well in the ratings for a SciFi Friday marathon.

Think about it:
- a rapidly spreading super virus sweeping around the planet
- catastrophic weather washing across nations
- global civilian unrest and uprisings
- explosive International plots (and sublots) including manipulation, corruption, deception, terror and mass murder

Back to reality: "virtually speaking" you can put me on the "You Don't Speak for Me, Cindy" Tour bus, which is well on it's way... getting closer to its destination in Washington where two opposing rallies are set to take place this weekend. On the far left is Cindy and her gang with their march for more publicity ...then off to the moderate and the right we have the "Support The Troops And Their Mission Weekend" which includes a rally opposite that Cindy-chic.

By the way, if you think everyone in the Middle East is against our war on terrorism, you might want to read this editorial from their corner of the world.

Have a great weekend --- stay safe, be well, and please say a few prayers of hope for everyone in harms way.
