This is serious caa, caa. My take is these "demons" are really pushing to put the troops on the streets and they're pushing HARD. They're already troops patrolling civilians right now in some states. They want to unleash the hounds and put us under a state of MARTIAL LAW. You all know this and if you doubt it, then you haven't been paying attention. The thing that's been keeping them from doing it is the 1878 POSSE COMITATUS law. This law prohibits the military from policing civilians. LOOK IT UP FOR YOURSELVES -- http://www.dojgov.net/posse_comitatus_act.htm dojgov.net www1.dojgov.net I've been reading articles lately that they want congress to add an amendment to that law and prohibit troops helping out during catasrophies like, "natural disasters" and " "emergencies." Is all of this 'bad' weather really "natural disasters" when we have info here on weather modification dating back, to the 60's, with legislation that has been PASSED a week or so ago? -- http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext. xpd?bill=s109-517 I mean think about it. I know that there are alot of folks here that still think that, that type of technology does not exist; but when you actually look at the the BILL (S. 517 that passed), it's hard to dismiss it as "conspiracy theory" just because YOU don't want to believe it. Anyway, we've known about the "bird flu", that has been killing folks over in the far east, well now they're saying that it's coming here, and it can't be stopped. Now the FUROR, wants to put the troops on the streets to qurantine those who are sick from those who aren't. Hooey opoo. Folks, the end result of BOTH senarios is MARTIAL LAW which is what they want, when you think about it. I think that they are the ones that created/released the plague just like the Aids virus. I digress, that another topic in itself. This is way bigger than Dubya.....he's just in the spotlight now so he takes all the blame. If Clinton was prez now, he'd be taking all the blame too. You must think "outside the box" people in order to get it.....you must connect the dots to understand. I'll tell you this, they are gonna bring this county DOWN!!!! Fine ------------------------------ http://www.breitbart.com/news/2005/10/04/D8D1B0500.html Bush Considers Military Role in Flu Fight By JENNIFER LOVEN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON President Bush, increasingly concerned about a possible avian flu pandemic, revealed Tuesday that any part of the country where the virus breaks out could likely be quarantined and that he is considering using the military to enforce it. "The best way to deal with a pandemic is to isolate it and keep it isolated in the region in which it begins," he said during a wide- ranging Rose Garden news conference. The president was asked if his recent talk of giving the military the lead in responding to large natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and other catastrophes was in part the result of his concerns that state and local personnel aren't up to the task of a flu outbreak. "Yes," he replied. After the bungled initial federal response to Katrina, Bush suggested putting the Pentagon in charge of search-and-rescue efforts in times of a major terrorist attack or similarly catastrophic natural disaster. He has argued that the armed forces have the ability to quickly mobilize the equipment, manpower and communications capabilities needed in times of crisis. But such a shift could require a change in law, and some in Congress and the states worry it would increase the power of the federal government at the expense of local control. Bush made clear that the potential for an outbreak of avian flu is much on his mind, and has him talking with "as many (world) leaders as I could find" and reading a book on the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic that killed 40 million and consulting staff and experts. "I have thought through the scenarios of what an avian flu outbreak could mean," he said. He acknowledged that a quarantine _ an idea sure to alarm many in the public _ is no small thing for the government to undertake and that enforcing it would be tricky. "It's one thing to shut down airplanes," Bush said. "It's another thing to prevent people from coming in to get exposed to the avian flu." He urged Congress to give him the ability to use the military, if needed. "I think the president ought to have all ... assets on the table to be able to deal with something this significant," he said. Bush also said he has been urging world leaders to improve reporting on outbreaks of the virus, and exploring how to speed the production of a spray, now in limited supply, that "can maybe help arrest the spread of the disease." "One of the issues is how do we encourage the manufacturing capacity of the country, and maybe the world, to be prepared to deal with the outbreak of a pandemic?" he said. Experts agree there will certainly be another flu pandemic _ a new human flu strain that goes global. However, it is unknown when or how bad that global epidemic will be _ or whether the H5N1 bird flu strain now circulating in Asian poultry will be its origin. Just in case, experts are tracking the avian flu, which has swept through poultry populations in large swaths of Asia since 2003, jumped to humans and killed at least 65 people. Most human cases have been linked to a contact with sick birds, but the World Health Organization has warned the virus could mutate into a form that spreads easily among humans _ changing it from a bird virus to a human pandemic flu strain.
