Not being a biologist at all, and just having a curious mind, wondering about the possibility of targeting specific populations with biological weapons.
Some races are more likely to get certain diseases than other races.
SARS was peculiar because it only seemed to target Chinese people in China (as I remember).
Racial differences in Biological terms are labeled as genotypes.
whatreallyhappened linked to this item today:
Strategy for Transforming Conventional Forces
… notions of how conventional warfare will be conducted in the future, including the use of microbes and “advanced forms of biological warfare that can ‘target’ specific genotypes.” … may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool” (p. 60).
Makes me think of a Batman show where he captures the bad guy from blackmailing the whole world with a deadly virus.
Here are some definitions of genotype:
The genetic makeup, as distinguished from the physical appearance, of an organism or a group of organisms. –source–
hepatitis C virus genotype
1. genetic heterogeneity and divergence in the viral sequences produce at least six genotypes of HCV. Genotypes cluster geographically (e.g.,
genotypes 1a and 1b typically found in the United States and Europe,
genotype 4 in Africa and the Middle East,
genotypes 5 and 6 in Southeast Asia and South Africa).
Response to interferon therapy depends on HCV genotype. –source–
The above seems to suggest a specific population can be differentiated biologically.
Although todays MSM news is downplaying the severity of the Mexican infection, saying it is a mild infection:
Reuters –MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Two-thirds of the roughly 1300 people in Mexico suspected of being infected with a fatal new strain of swine flu have been given a clean bill of health and sent home from the hospital, President Felipe Calderon said on Sunday. …
Perhaps this was / is to allay suspicions that are raised in the post previous to this one on this blog, that people are dying in Mexico but not in the US. Why?
The previous post suggests the introduction of two different intensities of the same virus. While a sound hypothesis it would not be so full proof, presumably not everyone is sure to be exposed to the mild virus and therefore be immune to the intense strand.
Considering SARS remained in China, is it somehow possible to make a virus location specific? Perhaps there are uniquenesses in Insects or Botany to specific areas? And only in those areas can a particular virus survive? Or we go back to the human genotype hypothesis, but then Mexicans in the US should be dying.
Why are hordes of people dying in Mexico and not elsewhere? And I am going on the presumption that this is a man made virus.
The WHO said on Friday regarding the deaths in Mexico that:
Of those, 18 have been confirmed as H1N1 swine flu, says the WHO, and tests so far have shown that 12 of those are “genetically identical” to the California virus. –source–
I am at a point of not trusting the WHO reports or the NewScientist. Although I would believe all the people working there are well intentioned. Just as I would believe the police are well intentioned yet reports later in this post show suspiciously dead microbiologists who never had autopsies.

The proposed Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Agency, or BARDA, would be exempt from long-standing open records and meetings laws that apply to most government departments, according to legislation approved Oct. 18 by the Senate health committee. The agency would be exempt from the Freedom of Information and Federal Advisory Committee acts, both considered crucial for monitoring government accountability. … –source – 2005–
Too raise suspicions farther there has been a lot of publicity regarding disappearing microbiologists, about forty in the last four years, all dying suspiciously.
Two video links I have not been able to watch but have the Microbiologists dying in their titles or description:

The following reports – from the same web page are a few years old 2005:
Microbiologist Death Toll Mounts As Connections To Dyncorp, Hadron, Promis Software & Disease Research Emerge —A Career In Microbiology Can Be Harmful to Your Health (Revised/Updated) by Michael Davidson and Michael C. Ruppert 03 Mar 2002 In the four-month period from Nov. 12 through Feb. 11, seven world-class microbiologists in different parts of the world were reported dead. Six died of ‘unnatural’ causes, while the cause of the seventh’s death is questionable. Also on Nov. 12, DynCorp, a major government contractor for data processing, military operations and intelligence work, was awarded a $322 million contract to develop, produce and store vaccines for the Department of Defense. DynCorp and Hadron, both defense contractors connected to classified research programs on communicable diseases, have also been linked to a software program known as PROMIS, which may have helped identify and target the victims. In the six weeks prior to Nov. 12, two additional foreign microbiologists were reported dead. Some believe there were as many as five more microbiologists killed during the period, bringing the total as high as 14. These two to seven additional deaths, however, are not the focus of this story. This same period also saw the deaths of three persons involved in medical research or public health.”
Scientists’ deaths are under the microscope by Alanna Mitchell, Simon Cooper and Carolyn Abraham – compiled by Alanna Mitchell 04 May 2002 “It’s a tale only the best conspiracy theorist could dream up. Eleven microbiologists mysteriously dead over the span of just five months. Some of them world leaders in developing weapons-grade biological plagues. Others the best in figuring out how to stop millions from dying because of biological weapons. Still others, experts in the theory of bioterrorism… Suspicious deaths –The sudden and suspicious deaths of 11 of the world’s leading microbiologists [list].”
The Very Mysterious Deaths of Five Microbiologists by Ian Gurney 20 Dec 2001 “It is a story worthy of a major conspiracy theory, the script for a Mel Gibson ‘Who dunnit?’ action movie, or a blueprint for a contrived and unbelievable episode of ‘The X Files’. …Over the past few weeks several world-acclaimed scientific researchers specializing in infectious diseases and biological agents such as Anthrax, as well as DNA sequencing, have been found dead or have gone missing.” –source–
I’d just like to add – on the same theme.
When there was a SARS outbreak in China, and people were dying from it.
In London I sat on a bus and a Chinese person, was so sick, continually sneezing, it was quite extreme.
No cases of SARS were reported in the UK (or I think outside China).
No prejudice to Chinese intended ..
According to what I’ve been reading, the fall out of the new flu in Mexico is vastly different from that in the U.S. In Mexico, it has been very deadly. In the U.S. it has not been deadly.
Read this: New U.S. swine flu cases spread pandemic fears
Now, imagine this.
How could one develop a flu that would kill one population and not kill another population, assuming the flu could cross borders without any trouble? It might not be very hard to do.
Manufacture two very similar variations on the same basic flu such that one is more lethal than the other while an immunity to one provides and immunity to the other. Release the more deadly version in the targeted area and the less deadly version in the area you wish to protect. Make sure to release both versions simultaneously.

The Bluish colours show suspected – where labaratory results have not been returned yet. No dot in center signifies death.
I have a sister-in-law from San Luis Potosi state in Mexico and we were told that in San Luis Potosi there have been at least 78 deaths, just in that city alone, not 68 in all of Mexico, as is being reported. Schools have been closed until 6 May in this state and in other areas in Mexico. Also, many public venues are being closed, so this makes it more deadly and dangerous than has been stated.
Migdalia Cruz, Phoenix, Arizona, USA
I work as a resident doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Mexico City and sadly, the situation is far from “under control”. As a doctor, I realise that the media does not report the truth. Authorities distributed vaccines among all the medical personnel with no results, because two of my partners who worked in this hospital (interns) were killed by this new virus in less than six days even though they were vaccinated as all of us were. The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200. I understand that we must avoid to panic, but telling the truth it might be better now to prevent and avoid more deaths.

… My family and I are going to stay home all weekend. We feel a little scared and confused with the feeling that we are not given being told the truth. Many people think the numbers of dead people is higher than we are being told.

Conspiracy theory does sound right
The pandemic likelihood will push Iran, Israel, Palestinians and the recession right off the stage.
When the G20 protester died and all the headlines were negative, anti terrorist arrests were made in order to replace the headlines. In fact no charges were ever made, but we saw pictures of police with machine guns at a suspects head. And possibly this time no pandemic will occur.
Just as everything seemed to be caving in. Ron Paul’s bill to have the Fed audited was gaining signatures (Over 84). And the Harman case was being exposed, whether it was initiated by pro or anti Israeli lobby, as a ploy or not, it showed the depth of polarity developing. Spiking has anyway being going on somewhat rampantly in our society.
Man’s instincts being perverted and championed is where we have arrived at. And such deviance can manifest as a pandemic.
Baxter was caught shipping a weaponized avian bird flu mixed strain in their vaccines last month in Europe. Bayer was caught shipping HIV in their drugs in the 80s. Both of these events are published in mainstream newspapers. You can use Google like everyone else to find them. –source–
And now all our headlines and concentration go to fear and and knowledge of Swine Flu:
A member of a British Airways cabin crew was taken to hospital with “flu-like symptoms” yesterday after falling ill on a flight from Mexico City to Heathrow. The man, who has not been named, has been taken to Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow, north-west London. –source–
“Literally hundreds and thousands of travellers come in and out of Mexico City every day,” Dr Osterholm said. “You’d have to believe there’s been more unrecognised transmission that’s occurred.” –source–
The first case was seen in Mexico on April 13. The outbreak coincided with the President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexico’s anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didn’t confirm if Solis had swine flu or not. –source–
Back in 2004, we were being propagandized that Bird Flu was the next pandemic.
Gene studies showed that so-called Bird Flu appeared to be nearly identical with the 1918 Spanish Flu
Which is rather nerve-wracking because in 2005 it was admitted that scientists were intentionally recreating the 1918 Spanish Flu virus!
But the predicted pandemic didn’t happen because Bird Flu isn’t that contagious. It needed to be blended with a more infectious form of flu, like swine flu (Used as a bio-weapon by the CIA against Cuba), to became a real slate-wiper!
And wonder of wonders, here it is!
In 2006, it was reported that scientists were intentionally creating bird flu and swine flu hybrids in the labs!
Which leads to asking how it is that this new flu epidemic explodes into view right after Fort Detrick admits that some of the nasty little beasties they have been working on went missing! –source–
Scientists recreate deadly spanish flu
US scientists who resurrected the 1918 spanish flu virus that killed as many as 50 million people say they are beginning to understand why it caused such a deadly pandemic and say it could happen again.
They have begun comparing the genetic mutations in the 1918 flu to those being seen in the H5N1 avian flu virus, which is killing tens of millions of poultry and some people in Asia, in the hope of being able to predict and perhaps even prevent a similar pandemic.
“We felt we had to recreate the virus and run these experiments to understand the biological properties that made the 1918 virus so exceptionally deadly,” Terrence Tumpey of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, who helped write the reports published jointly this week in the journals Nature and Science. –source–
Editor’s note: On Friday, NPR reported that the deadly swine flu “combines genetic material from pigs, birds and humans in a way researchers have not seen before,” thus leading us to suspect it was cooked up in a lab.
Swine flu panic is spreading in Mexico and soldiers are patrolling the streets after it was confirmed that human to human transmission is occurring and that the virus is a brand new strain which is seemingly affecting young, healthy people the worst. Questions about the source of the outbreak are also being asked after a public health official said that the virus was “cultured in a laboratory”.
“This strain of swine influenza that’s been cultured in a laboratoryis something that’s not been seen anywhere actually in the United States and the world, so this is actually a new strain of influenza that’s been identified,” said Dr. John Carlo, Dallas Co. Medical Director (video clip here).
As we previously highlighted, those that have a stake in the Tamiflu vaccine include top globalists and BIlderberg members like George Shultz, Lodewijk J.R. de Vink and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Indeed, Rumsfeld himself played a key role in hyping an outbreak of swine flu back in the 1976 when he urged the entire country to get vaccinated. Many batches of the vaccine were contaminated, resulting in hundreds of sick people and 52 fatalities.
The fact that the properties of the strain are completely new, that the virus is spreading from people to people, and that the young and healthy are being hit worst, has disturbing parallels to the deadly 1918 pandemic that killed millions.
It is unclear as to why, if the virus is a brand new strain, that public health officials are so confident programs of mass vaccination, which are already being prepared, would necessarily be effective.
It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that deadly flu viruses have been concocted in labs and then dispatched with the intention of creating a pandemic.
When the story first broke last month, Czech newspapers questioned if the shocking discovery of vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus which were distributed to 18 countries by the American company Baxter were part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic.
Since the probability of mixing a live virus biological weapon with vaccine material by accident is virtually impossible, this leaves no other explanation than that the contamination was a deliberate attempt to weaponize the H5N1 virus to its most potent extreme and distribute it via conventional flu vaccines to the population who would then infect others to a devastating degree as the disease went airborne.
However, this is not the first time that vaccine companies have been caught distributing vaccines contaminated with deadly viruses.
In 2006 it was revealed that Bayer Corporation had discovered that their injection drug, which was used by hemophiliacs, was contaminated with the HIV virus. Internal documents prove that after they positively knew that the drug was contaminated, they took it off the U.S. market only to dump it on the European, As…. Government officials in France went to prison for allowing the drug to be distributed. The documents show that the FDA colluded with Bayer to cover-up the scandal and allowed the deadly drug to be distributed globally. No Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States.
In the UK, a 2007 outbreak of foot and mouth disease that put Britain on high alert has been originated from a government laboratory which is shared with an American pharmaceutical company, mirroring the deadly outbreak of 2001, which was also deliberately released. –source–
Donald Rumsfeld makes $5m killing on bird flu drug
Sunday, 12 March 2006
Donald Rumsfeld has made a killing out of bird flu. The US Defence Secretary has made more than $5m (£2.9m) in capital gains from selling shares in the biotechnology firm that discovered and developed Tamiflu, the drug being bought in massive amounts by Governments to treat a possible human pandemic of the disease.
More than 60 countries have so far ordered large stocks of the antiviral medication – the only oral medicine believed to be effective against the deadly H5N1 strain of the disease – to try to protect their people. The United Nations estimates that a pandemic could kill 150 million people worldwide.
Britain is about halfway through receiving an order of 14.6 million courses of the drug, which the Government hopes will avert some of the 700,000 deaths that might be expected. Tamiflu does not cure the disease, but if taken soon after symptoms appear it can reduce its severity. –source–
In a ‘Holy convenience, Batman!’ moment, a ‘unique’ flu virus (one likely concocted in US Army labs) overtakes media coverage of revelations that the highest levels of the US government instructed the CIA (and private contractors) to torture terror suspects.
Baxter Caught Shipping Vaccines With Live Avian Flu Virus To 18 Countries Worldwide
Czech newspapers are questioning if the shocking discovery of vaccines contaminated with the deadly avian flu virus which were distributed to 18 countries by the American company Baxter were part of a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic.
The claim holds weight because, according to the very laboratory protocols that are routine for vaccine makers, mixing a live virus biological weapon with vaccine material by accident is virtually impossible.
“The company that released contaminated flu virus material from a plant in Austria confirmed Friday that the experimental product contained live H5N1 avian flu viruses,” reports the Canadian Press. –source–
