Advanced Biological Warfare (article by Lord Stirling) ~ link ~ I have a link to a free movie on Hulu, BLACK DAWN: THE NEXT PANDEMIC, that is most interesting. The movie is about the spread of a naturally occurring mutation in the H5N1 virus; a rather nasty mutation that kills up to 10% of those it effects. I strongly urge people to take the time to view this movie, as it shows the impact of what a single naturally occurring virus mutation can do. In reality, a global strategic Advanced Biological-based war would be at least ten-fold as bad and more likely a hundred-fold in its impact as the viruses would be military designer-created (recombination DNA) diseases with a much stronger kill ratio (90% or higher fatality level from an infection) and there would likely be many dozens of viruses released at the same time, instead of only one disease.

Eight injured in Jordan clashes ~ link ~
About 2,000 pro-democracy protesters demanding political reforms were holding their peaceful weekly demonstration in the capital when they came under attack from pro-government activists armed with batons, pipes and stones.
According to medical sources those injured, all pro-democracy protesters, suffered fractures to the skull, arms or legs. A journalist and his son are among the injured.
Police blamed the violence on the fact that both government supporters and pro-democracy protesters staged rallies near one another at the same time in Amman.
Iran cleric warns Egyptians of US plots ~ link ~ A senior Iranian cleric has praised the Egyptian Revolution against Western-backed President Hosni Mubarak, but warned against replacing a puppet leader with another.
“Egyptian people felt humiliated for being a subsidiary to Israel and could not take it any longer and thus the youths took action,” Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said during a Friday sermon in Tehran, IRNA reported.
Ayatollah Jannati criticized the “imprudent” US policy to adopt an ambiguous stance in support for Mubarak despite their better knowledge that the countdown had started for the dictator's rule.
“Our concern is that lest only pawns might be replaced,” he said, warning of an “enemy” plot to sweep new US puppet into power to parry the pro-democracy uprising in Egypt.

State workers staged mass protests on Thursday to oppose the plan which curtails union rights sharply for public employees. Some families even camped out overnight in a last-ditch effort to block passage of the bill, ABC news reported on Friday.
"I want to do anything in my power to raise awareness that this can't happen," said one protester.
Wisconsin's broiling budget battle has forced President Obama to thrust himself and stop it from developing into a full scale fracas.
"Some of what I've heard coming out of Wisconsin, where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally seems like more of an assault on unions," Obama said in a television interview on Wednesday.
