Mexican Swine Flu - UPDATE

Early Mexican Swine Flu victim's widow not told of disease - he died on April 20 ~ link ~ I cannot but help wondering if this release of a mild (in terms of fatality ratio; but not mild in terms of its contagiousness) biowar virus could be connected to the reported (by both good Israeli and Iranian sources) almost attack on Iran on April 17th. On that day the Iranians had planned a big military event and had assembled the bulk of Iran's fighters at a airbase. Russian recon satellites picked up movement at Israeli airbases and tipped off the Iranians who quickly disbursed their fighters and the attack was called off. Was this a Iranian biowar virus that was accidentally released in the alert? Is this an Iranian biowar warning to the West, issued just after the almost attack. As a warning it is very fast spreading but not too lethal. Is this the first part of a binary virus attack? Is this something else? Link to the story from an Iranian publication quoting a well connected Israeli publication on the almost attack on April 17, 2009.

They are doing what many biowar games simulations have pointed out as a key risk factor - they have/are moving way too slow to seal off international borders. Based on comments that I have read, on this site and many others, what some people do not understand is that if this is a bioengineered/biowar virus it is a totally different ballgame than something naturally occurring. Advanced Biological Warfare is at least as dangerous as Strategic Thermonuclear Warfare in deaths/injuries expected.

WHO raises pandemic flu alert level to phase 4
2009-04-27 23:00:05

(AP) - The World Health Organization has raised its pandemic alert for a new strain of swine flu by one level, two steps short of declaring a full pandemic.

WHO says the phase 4 alert means there is sustained human-to-human transmission in at least one country.

WHO's assistant director-general Keiji Fukuda adds that «at this time containment is not a feasible option» as the virus has already spread to several other countries.

WHO has confirmed human cases of swine flu in Mexico, the United States, Canada and Spain. Only Mexico has reported deaths from the new strain.
WHO Director-General Margaret Chan made the decision to raise the alert level from phase 3 after emergency consultations with flu experts from around the world Monday.

US Denies Biological Bird Flu Weapons
JAKARTA, INDONESIA - The United States has flatly denied allegations it was producing biological weapons from bird flu samples sent by Indonesia to the World Health Organization, the English daily The Jakarta Post reported Monday.

Michael H. Anderson, counselor for Public Affairs at the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia, has explained the U.S. has undertaken "not to develop, produce, stockpile, or otherwise acquire or retain microbial or other biological agents or toxins of types and in quantities that have no justification for prophylactic, protective, and other peaceful purposes, as well as weapons and means of delivery."

The U.S. is a party to the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on Their Destruction, which entered into force on March 26, 1975.

However, Indonesian senior biodefense researcher Isro Samihardjo said the U.S. could use bird flu virus samples from Indonesia to develop weapons at the Los Alamos Laboratory.

Isro was speaking at a meeting about Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari's newly released book here Saturday.

In her book "It's Time for the World to Change, Divine Hands behind Bird Flu," Siti writes of her suspicions about a conspiracy between the U.S. and the WHO.
