Posted in: H7N9 flu 'one of most lethal' says WHO as virus spreads to Taiwan See in context

“We think this virus is more transmissible to humans than H5N1,” he said, referring to the strain the WHO estimates has killed more than 360 people globally since 2003."

360 people in 10 years. I'd be worried if that figure had several more zeros.

@smith, yes, and don't believe whoever chirped is the bird they claim to be. What's signed Petey the Parrot may actually be Maynard the Myna.

It's estimated the body has been there over twenty years and hasn't had repairs(recorded ) in over 30 years since construction. A head was once found in the vicinity. Creepy.

" The statement said news that the two brothers may have been behind last week’s carnage came as an “absolute shock” to Russell and her family."

Maybe because the narrative doesn't jive with any reality they know?

He was set up by someone. He was quoted as saying he didn't even eat rice, indicating he didn't know what ricin was.

As has been said, "When searching for a needle in a haystack, don't add more hay."

With the growth in surveillance, that's a lot of hay.

" The group—the so-called Syrian Electronic Army—also successfully hacked the Twitter feeds of AFP and CBS News earlier this year."

They are FEDS, more likely than not.

As badsey noted, the TSA has been under a State of Emergency since 9-11-2001, declared by GWB and continued by BHO. Effectively Martial Law.

" The law states just before the actual WMD definition that surf used that section 921 of the U.S legal code can also be used to define a WMD: (2) the term “weapon of mass destruction” means— (A) any destructive device as defined in section 921 of this title;"

Please provide a link. I've read Section 921, but have not found that quote.

" We need at the least a “no-ride” list barring suspected terrorists from Amtrak trains because of the potential threat of an attack."

I suppose you would also TSA checkpoints at every bus station, and state borders as well. "Show us your papers!" Welcome to USSA/TSA. Land of the Free.

Discussing whether the brothers had background checks to acquire the firearms is absurd. How many gangbangers or mafiosos go through legal channels to do anything? If anything, the Fumbling Bureau of Instigations dropped the ball on the 5-yard line, having reportedly long monitored at least the elder. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if this weren't one of their sting operations that went very wrong right under their noses. Check whether the guns were part of the "Fast-and-Furious" debacle.

The charge of WMD will prove to be problematic for the prosecution as the definition of WMD doesn't fit. According to US legal definition :

" Weapons of Mass Destruction Law & Legal Definition

Weapons of mass destruction refers to any weapon that is designed or intended to cause death or serious physical harm through the release, dissemination, or impact of toxic or poisonous chemicals, or their precursors,a weapon involving a disease organism or biological agent ,or a weapon that is designed to release radiation or radioactivity at a level dangerous to human life."

Survival strategy: keep some cash on hand in case things unexpectedly go the Cypriot route; convert non-essential funds into physical assets that will retain value in the longer term and can be used to barter further down the road; never, ever believe the word of a pol.

"… because every single one of them know exactly what is going to happen to those that want to get high for fun."

" What is going to happen to them?"

Oh, let's see...some will go on to invent many great products and businesses that the global population uses such as home PCs, portable music players, and smartphones; some will go on to become political leaders; some will go on to contribute to the entertainment industries of music and cinema; and some will just do little or nothing at all.

" And yet, as one poster mentioned, an exhibition featuring the destruction from the bombs was removed because it was 'too graphic'. People literally do not want to know the consequences of such actions; they just want to think it was 'necessary' based on false speculation."

That's the truth. And those same statist sheeple chant U-S-A as if the genocidal actions are something to be proud of.

" I thought it was against the U.S law to give financial support to terrorist organisations. Is it not against the law to support terrorist organisations that the U.S. government likes or act in the interest of the U.S government?"

It's "do as we say, not as we do". Or didn't you get the memo?

Yeah, right! When I was a mid-teen, I knew LOTS of same-age girls who knew VERY well what they were doing, and enjoyed it. This was in the 70's. Some girls were innocent, some rather experienced. The preacher's daughter was among the best of the experienced ones I knew.

smith, I agree,

" Well, it certainly shouldn't be FORGOTTEN, I just don't think it should be 'celebrated'. Never forget, and use the memories to move forward, as you mention."

Such an atrocity should never be forgotten. Not only that, but it also should be honestly re-evaluated as to whether it was necessary, should be considered a war crime, and its long-term effects.

" By the way nothing difficult about making bombs. A friend of mine was doing that by the time he was 14, and he knew a great variety of ways to make things go bang back the in the early 1950s, including making one dirty bomb with radioactive isotopes. No great smarts are required."

Not exactly a wise statement to post on a site monitored by the alphabet soup agencies.

@sail, Thanks for that link. I knew I saw many of those media "Max Headrooms" prattling the same tune. But there are some who prefer for those videos to disappear down the Orwellian memory hole rather than face the fact. They would also rather make endless apologetic excuses for the far-left-loving media morons.
