Bird flu and the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at the University of St Andrews

"Both the British and US governments have created policies of quarantine and internment procedures which they need to indoctrinate Joe public into going along with.

"In the first stage, limited biological panics will be metered upon the public (in Britain through Porton Down, the same people who brought you Foot and Mouth) in order to train them into producing the desired response...."

April 6, 2006

A dead swan was found in the coastal Fife village of Cellardyke, about nine miles from St Andrews...

The man who found the swan in Cellardyke, Dan Young, a researcher at St Andrews University, said he had been alerted by a friend, who thought a heron was lying in the harbour...

By coincidence, yesterday Defra was conducting its first national emergency simulation of procedures in the event of a bird flu outbreak...
Exercise Hawthorn

Dan Young's work includes aspects of virology... http://news.scotsman.com/index.cfm?id=529922006

Defra was conducting a simulation.

The following is taken from an article entitled: Bird Flu Outbreak Coincided With Drill

Staged-managed manufactured crises are always paralleled by drills of the same nature. This provides culpable deniability if any government agency is caught with their hands in the cookie jar. They can say it was just part of the drill...

A consultancy agency with government and police connections was running an exercise for an unnamed company that revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact same times and locations as happened in real life on the morning of July 7th...

Wargames running on the morning of 9/11 simulated planes crashing into high visibility buildings on the US east coast. These drills were enough to confuse air traffic controllers about the real world nature of the actual hijacked planes thereby slowing response times and enabling them to find their targets. In addition the exercises also provided culpable deniability...

Patricia Doyle, PhD also reported that Foot and Mouth exercises were being run by the British government immediately before the outbreak was made public...

For those who doubt the veracity of a British government plot to once again eviscerate the livelihoods of farmers (the biggest power block opposing Blair) in an act of 'Agraterrorism', just consider the fact that a vial of the Foot and Mouth virus was supposedly 'stolen' from Porton Down bio-weapons facility before the 2001 outbreak took place. The Sunday Express reported that it was released deliberately and could have possibly been the source of the outbreak two months later.

The dead bird was a mute swan.

Scotland on Sunday, 19 March 2006, has a news story entitled: Scots terror team draws up plans for national disasters

According to Murdo MacLeod of Scotland on Sunday, Scottish civil servants are to have contingency plans in place to deal with various threats.

According to Scotland on Sunday: A team headed by Gregor Lindsay, a civil servant and RAF reservist, is working in Perth...

Scenarios which the unit has plans for include: A lethal bird flu pandemic sweeping across Scotland...

The following is from: The Secret State - Domestic Surveillance & Control in Britain

The ‘Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence’ at the University of St Andrews:

The Centre possesses a unique database on terrorist incidents going back to 1968, based on collaboration with a US think tank (‘the RAND-St Andrews database on Terrorism and Low Intensity Conflict’). Bruce Hoffman, the founder of the Centre is now a vice-president of Rand and chief of its Washington office.

The current chair of the Centre’s advisory board is Professor Paul Wilkinson , who began his career as an education officer in the RAF. Professor Wilkinson has obtained funding from the ESRC for research on the domestic management of terrorist attacks in the UK. Director of the Centre is Magnus Ranstrop, a specialist on Lebanon’s Hizbollah and a CNN expert on Al-Qaida...
Dr Rohan Gunaratna claims affiliation to a diverse band of think tanks including fellowships at the St Andrews’ Centre, where he completed his PhD, but also the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism in Israel and the Institute of Strategic Studies, Pakistan.

Dr Jim Robertson, of the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control, said: "There is a better chance of a person winning the National Lottery than catching bird flu in the UK today."
Bird flu: the deadly delay

The following is from: Bird Flu And Social Darwinism

"If we had an outbreak somewhere in the United States, do we not then quarantine that part of the country, and how do you then enforce a quarantine? When -- it's one thing to shut down airplanes; it's another thing to prevent people from coming in to get exposed to the avian flu. And who best to be able to effect a quarantine? One option is the use of a military that's able to plan and move." President Bush, October 4th 2005.

"The Bush cabinet was on Cipro, the anthrax fighting antibiotic, on the day of September 11, weeks before the first anthrax attack took place.

"The people who will profit financially from a bird flu outbreak are Donald Rumsfeld and top Bilderberg members like Etienne F. Davignon.

"Bird flu is one more tool in the arsenal of Globalist Malthusian social Darwinists who believe it is their destiny to act as guardians to mother earth against the 'plague' of humanity and that brutal methods of population control are the only way to realize a new world order."

Bird Flu - H5 virus unlikely to cause a pandemic.

The number of people worldwide who have died from bird flu is around 100 according to the World Health Organization (March 2006).

These people were in very close contact with birds.

In Europe 69,000 people died from TB in 2004.

Someone in the world is newly infected with TB bacilli every second.

Overall, one-third of the world's population is currently infected with the TB bacillus.It is estimated that 1.7 million deaths resulted from TB in 2004.

Two groups of scientists, in Japan and in Holland, have come up with explanations as to why human to human transmission of the H5N1 virus is highly unlikely.

Unlike other known flu viruses which can be easily transmitted between people, the H5N1 virus cannot spread through coughs or sneezes.

Previous pandemics have been caused by H1 type viruses (the 1918 pandemic), H2 (the 1957 Asian) or H3 (the Hong Kong flu of 1968).

The H5 virus has been present in the human population since the late 1950's, but has never had the full set of mutations needed to set off a pandemic.

Peter Palese, a virologist at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, declared H5 infects people only when they are exposed to very large doses, for example when they sleep with chickens in the same room. "I feel strongly that H5 has been around in humans for a long time and never caused a pandemic," suggesting that this is not the virus which is likely to be the next pandemic.

Bird flu has been affecting the world for many years.Bird flus have been troublesome for agriculture at least since 1878, when Italian poultry were hit with a disease labeled fowl plague.

Each year, for many decades, a relatively small number of people have caught bird flu from birds.

In 1995 Mexico stopped an outbreak of severe H5N2 flu.

In 2002 Italy became the first country to eradicate bird flu using a marker vaccine and regular testing.

Why is bird flu getting a lot of publicity in the media?

http://business.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,9068-1833185,00.html

Widespread fears of a bird flu pandemic have helped spark a sales surge at Swiss drugs group Roche, which makes Tamiflu.

Roche, which is the world's only manufacturer of Tamiflu, revealed this morning that group sales had surged to more than £11.1 billion in the third quarter, driven by "significant growth" in sales of the drug.

The UK Government spent 32 million pounds buying smallpox vaccine from a firm whose boss was Paul Drayson.

Paul Drayson, had donated 50,000 pounds to the Labour Party just weeks before the contract was finalised.
