Washington's Total War on Syria ~ link ~ Good One, take the time to read it all at the link.  Stirling    
Washington's scorched earth mass killing and destruction constitutes total war. It's US policy in all conflicts. Syrians struggle to survive. They're proud, partisan, and not about to roll over for America.

High stakes define the conflict. At issue is freedom or neoserfdom slavery. Meanwhile, Washington's turning another regional country into charnel house hell. At the same time, it has other targets in mind.

So far Syrian strategy failed. Stepped up violence is certain. More sanctions are planned. Russia and China vetoed Security Council authorization. On August 2, the General Assembly votes.
Israel's Plan for Syria: The Somalia Model ~ link ~  I have always said that Syria is a 'Backdoor to War with Iran'.   They want to eliminate the Syrian threat, just as they tried to eliminate the Hezbollah threat in the Second Lebanon War.  If they even get close to eliminating the Syrian threat, the Syrians, Iranians and Hezbollah 'will launch'.   But the Netanyahu jerks seem to be blind to this likely outcome.  Remember Satan blinds his minions!   Stirling     
These hard words of Putin answer the question of the US and Israeli intentions. This was the position of Israeli strategist Yinon and of the Neocons – Somalisation of the region. Israeli leaders still follow their high-risk short-term strategy of unleashing civil war in Syria, removing Assad and turning Syria into a mess of armed groups that would not interfere with Israeli jets reaching Iran. It is certainly risky, as it was risky to attack Lebanon in 2006, but Israel has such a powerful militarist complex that it needs to take otherwise unneeded risks. 

The main conclusion of the leaked protocols is that Israeli leaders retained their love to live dangerously. While some other countries, notably Russia, are seeking stability, Israelis love play, and power play. Nothing risked, nothing gained, they say. They are ready to accept short term risks for long term gains. And elimination of the Syrian army is certainly a long term gain for Israel.

Led By Freaks: Celente also describes how the United States of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson ended up led by freaks, just as the Germany of Bach, Beethoven, Goethe, and Einstein and the Italy of Michelangelo, DaVinci, and Galileo ended up led by Hitler and Mussolini:

“Then there is America. No shortage of great people past and present. How could they let two-bit freaks lead and destroy them? Clinton, Bush, Cheney, Obama, Romney? To me it’s all a two-bit freak show. Look around the world: Blair, Cameron, Rajoy, Netanyahu, Merkel, Monti, Berlusconi, Sarkozy, Hollande … name your country, pick your poison: president, prime minister, chancellor … all, in my eyes, two-bit freaks.”
“And they’re dangerous. They start wars, kill millions, destroy nations. They steal your money and give it to their friends. And with little resistance, and sometimes none at all, the people let them do it. In fact, not only do the people let them do it, they argue among themselves why their freak is better than the other freak. They will get angry with you if you call their freak a freak. They will actually fight and die to defend their freaks.”

I have spent a large part of the day speaking to experts about what is happening, suddenly, across the nation as H3N2v Swine Flu spreads and is transmitted to humans.  The H3N2v (which may be a mutated form of H1N1) is - out of the blue - appearing all over America (even in Hawaii), it is especially showing up at County Fairs where many people come into contact with infected animals (sometimes at children's petting booths where small children can pet animals including baby pigs).  How H3N2v has quietly and rapidly spread among the livestock population before it has gotten to these county fairs is the question!  I have talked to state and county health department officials and even higher, and I am convinced that America lies totally unprepared for a major Contagion, for a killing Pandemic.  I am further convinced that such a disease may be soon among us in order to 'herd the sheeple' into taking RFID chips (the literal 'Mark of the Beast' right out of the Bible) and even into turning in their guns and giving up the remaining freedoms that they have.  Further, an attack on Iran/Syria is very apt to trigger the Iranian MAD (mutually assured destruction) Counter-Force of multiple genetically engineered killer viruses upon the civilians of North America, Europe, Israel and other parts of the Middle East.  Do pay close attention to this new threat, that has almost overnight appeared throughout America.  Stirling 
Mutant Swine Flu ~ link ~  Take the time to read all of this at the link, I have a feeling that this will become a 'really big thing' in the near future.   Stirling     
Has A H1N1 come back in a mutated form, which not only re-infects people who caught this virus in 2009 but also which is able to side-step the vaccines developed to combat swine flu? Is there a cover-up among the health authorities of certain countries? New research answers these questions.

In his recent work "Mutating swine flu virus might render vaccine useless", US based researcher Terrence Aym* presents ground-breaking research which claims that there is an epidemic of a new variant of A H1N1 (Swine Flu) sweeping across the world and which stipulates that the healthcare authorities are covering up the statistics so as not to alarm the population.

Laport and Butler Counties H3N2v Sequences Match ~ link ~ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today confirmed that nine of 10 suspected influenza cases in Butler County have tested positive for the H3N2v strain. The 10th case is still being tested. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Butler County Health Department are actively investigating human illnesses associated with the Butler County Fair. The strain matches the flu virus that recently infected four people with swine exposure at a county fair in Indiana.
Although the H3N2v sequences from the above confirmed cases at the Butler County Fair in Hamilton, Ohio have not yet been made public, two full sets of sequences from the LaPorte County Fair were released by the CDC last week (A/Indiana/07/2012 and A/Indiana/09/2012).  The two sequences from Indiana exactly matched each other and were closely related two the two sets of sequences from an outbreak at a West Virginia daycare center in Mineral County.  Two cases were confirmed (A/West Virginia/06/2011 and A/West Virginia/07/2011).

This novel sub-clade is clearly transmitting to humans in Indiana and Ohio, CDC denials of sustained transmission notwithstanding.

Press Release from the Indiana Department of Health ~
INDIANAPOLIS—The Indiana State Department of Health has identified a case of variant influenza A in Jackson County, bringing the total to five cases statewide.  All cases have been linked to swine.  Laboratory testing is pending on potential additional cases.
The State Health Department has detected increased influenza activity in different areas of the state.  Flu symptoms usually include fever and respiratory symptoms, such as cough, sore throat, and runny nose, and possibly other symptoms, such as body aches, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.  Symptoms usually last about 2 to 5 days.
Variant Influenza A virus can be directly transmitted from swine to people and from people to swine. Human infections are most likely to occur when people are in close proximity to live infected pigs, such as working with them in barns and livestock exhibits at fairs.  Influenza viruses are not transmitted by eating pork and pork products. 
While influenza is not an uncommon diagnosis in pigs, the State Board of Animal Health encourages swine owners to contact a veterinarian if their animals show signs consistent with flu, including coughing, respiratory illness, off-feed and fever. Most county fairs have a private veterinary practitioner on call for on-site assistance.
Hoosiers are encouraged to wash hands with soap and water before and after petting or touching any animal.  Never eat, drink, or put anything in your mouth when visiting animal areas.  Older adults, pregnant women, young children, and people with weakened immune systems should be extra careful around animals. 
The best way to prevent spread of influenza is to practice good hygiene.  Wash your hands frequently. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve or elbow.  If possible, avoid contact with those who are ill.  Stay home if you develop influenza symptoms and contact your health care provider. 
Additional information regarding influenza can be found at the Indiana State Department of Health website at

Expected H3N2v Cluster Explosion in Jackson County Indiana ~ link ~ What steps are being taken to ensure that the large number of visitors to the Indiana State Fair, beginning 3 August 2012, will be safe from H3N2v???   Stirling   

The above comments, from today’s press release from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), confirm an H3N2v case in Jackson County and strongly suggest many more cases are likely.  The press release provides little detail on the potential additional cases, but yesterday Jackson County personnel confirmed that they began sending swabs to the state lab on Friday, per an alert that was sent out after H3N2 was confirmed in people and pigs at the LaPorte County Fair.  Thus, the confirmed case above likely represents one of the first swabs tested.

However, Jackson County also noted that there have been symptomatic cases in the country for the past six weeks, suggesting many clusters of cases are present.  The confirmation of H3N2 in one of the initial swabs suggests most or all of the additional swabs will also be H3N2v confirmed, since flu-like symptoms in Indiana in July are uncommon.

These cases also strongly suggest that additional cases will be identified at the Indiana State Fair, which begins tomorrow in Indianapolis.


Confirmed H3N2v Jackson County Indiana Case ~ link     
H3N2v Butler County Cluster Grows to 41 ~ linkThe Butler County Health Department received 41 calls reporting that 39 children and two adults had become sick after attending the week-long fair, which ended Saturday, said director Pat Burg.

Most of the people who became sick with the suspected H3N2v (variant) influenza virus had direct contact with hogs at the fair, she said.

Vast majority of the 41 in contact with pigs. Might be children exhibiting or friends of children exhibiting

There were 350 hog exhibitors at the fair, Burg said.

H3N2v can be transmitted from swine to humans and vice versa, officials said, but it is rarely transmitted between humans.

The above comments confirm that the number of symptomatic people linked to the Butler County Fair in Hamilton, Ohio was markedly higher than the 10 confirmed cases, which are record numbers for confirmed or suspect H3N2v cases at a single event.  These numbers increase the likelihood that the H3N2v in Ohio matches the LaPorte County Fair outbreak in Indiana were there were 4 confirmed cases and at least 15 symptomatic cases identified via telephone survey.
Confirmed H3N2v Case in Maui Hawaii ~ link ~ The H3N2v virus identified in this case shares genetic similarities to variant flu viruses which have been identified in several other states in the past year.

The above comments are from the Hawaii Department of Health press release describing the confirmed H3N2v case.  The Maui patient had swine contact according to media reports, and the suspect swine herd is being tested.  The swine originated in California.

The above comments strongly suggest that the H3N2v is closely related to human cases, but does not distinguish between in constellation in the first 10 cases in 2011, and the constellation seen in all most recent public sequences (A/West Virginia/06/2011, A/West Virginia/07/2011, A/Utah/10/2012, A/Indiana/07/2012, A/Indiana/09/2012).
[Not HxN2v] - Seal HxN8 PB2 Recombination with Canine and Equine Sequences ~ link ~ This outbreak is particularly significant, not only because of the disease it caused in seals but also because the virus has naturally acquired mutations that are known to increase transmissibility and virulence in mammals.

The above comments are in the “significance" summary of the newly published mBio paper, “Emergence of Fatal Avian Influenza in New England Harbor Seals” by researchers at Columbia University.  The paper describes sequences from five H3N8 sets of sequences from seals who died in late 2011 off the New England coast.  The “naturally acquired mutation” of greatest concern was D701N in PB2, which is an acquisition which is known to increase avian influenza transmission in mammalian hosts.
The acquisition of these mammalian polymorphisms on an avian genetic background signal rapid evolution of the avian sequences toward mammalian transmission, and raise concerns of unknown hosts serving as mixing vessels for recombination and rapid influenza evolution.
