The Olympic Genocide! H5N1. (News-Opinion)
By Uwe Paschen.
As we approach the Great Olympic games of 2008 in China many question have come to once mind, such as ethics, Human rights and Freedom of expression, terrorism and security as well though!
What did not really come to any once mind, at least not in the public at large is the possibility of a pandemic outbreak of unprecedented dimension!
China had this week a couple of cases of a mysterious illness that by its symptoms alone does remind one of the so called Bird Flu or H5N1 Virus.
Chinas and the WHO do not say at this point what it is or could be since no one does know for certain and speculation are always dangerous, especially in the wake of such events as the Olympics and its money machinery!
Some Asian media have reported the possibility of the Bird Flu as well as Terror acts, committed with some Virus, Bacteria or Chemical that would make the People sick and cause death as well!
Others are talking of the mutation of the H5N1 Virus into a more aggressive and easier to transmit organism.
What the WHO and China do want to avoid is a panic reaction based of rumours and fear, especially since so much is at stake here! After all those are the Olympic Games!
On the other hand neither China nor the WHO want to miss any thing that could or would put people at risk and cause a pandemic of Bird Flu around the World.
Many are coming from all over the World to the Games in China and will leave as well again soon after those games. They would be the ideal and fastest carrier of a deadly virus around the World, that could and would spread at a speed never ever seen before in Human History and cause millions of casualties around the World!
The Olympics are one of those Ideal occasions for such pandemic to take place and may very well do so in the near future as well! Maybe not in China though and maybe not this time around either. Yet, on the other hand, maybe this is the time for it to spread out around the world! Makes you wonder if those Viruses are not smart after all!
The difficult part here is to avoid an unfunded panic and still protect all Humans around the Globe should it be another H5N1 or even worth yet, a mutation of the H5N1!
