Bio Attack Nation Unready
We are told by out leadership that we risk loss of American life from a Bio-Attack. This is quite a scary notion. We have already allotted over 20 Billion US Dollars to the cause of prevention since 9-11. Tom Ridge indicated that Bio-Terrorism is amongst one of our biggest fears, as much or more than nuclear detonation within our borders. Meanwhile we have Pig Disease and Bird Flu running its course in China and the CDC, WHO, HHS and other organizations and agencies are warning of us an impending Pandemic on top of any Bio-logical or chemical attack being planned by Al Queda.
What can we do? Well we must set up a bio-terrorist plan to protect our populations;
We will need a sufficient distribution system of vaccines for the exact strain of virus used. We will need special first responder protocol. We will need to isolate the problem rapidly. Unfortunately there is much more work to be done and then there is a chemical attack scenario of poison gas. The government does have a national stockpile of some vaccines, such as small pox and can get them anywhere in the United States in 12-hours, yet is any city truly prepared to cope with isolating the situation immediately, the longer they wait the further it spreads. If the city in question is not isolated within a few hours our highly mobile society could spread it to other states. If we wait days, it could be in every states, as the flu often travels. Project BioShield, which was initiated in 2003 could help, but is it enough? Do we have teams ready to identify the biological agent fast enough to react and prevent massive casualties? The answer: "Well, it depends." Depends on what it is and if we have what we need; if we have to isolate folks and then find a cure, we are going to take a large hit. Sounds serious? Indeed, it is. Hospitals cannot handle a widespread epidemic and trying to do so would only insure the death of most of the medical staff. Think on this.

In the words of a secret agent who has signed the Official Secrets Act in Britain we find the rationale for what government and supranational organizations have been involved in since Cleopatra, Christopher Marlowe and his own immediate predecessors Crowley and Ian Fleming. David Barrett tells us:"Although the policies of 'need-to-know' and 'compartmentalized knowledge' can sometimes cause more trouble than they're worth, there are very sensible reasons for them; there are many things which do require the highest levels of secrecy.
What are the benefits of Nuclear War again; I must have missed that point?
Indian and Pakistan and nuclear war. What does the world lose if India and Pakistan have a nuclear war? Well in Southern India; in the cities of Hyderabad, Banglore, and Coimbatore there are many students who come to America and learn our technologies and bring their hard work ethic and ideas.

MORAL ARMOR Condemns Home and Business Seizure Law
Nothing could be more alarming for Americans than what I read this morning: "The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that local governments may seize people's homes and businesses - even against their will - for private economic development." This is a deplorable moral atrocity to perpetrate against Americans and must be reversed.
The Elephant Roared and Brought Forth a Turd: A Case Against Democratizing the Middle East
The original vulgarity was bylined: ?The Constipation of America's Mid-East Peace Policy!It is with some trepidation that I embark upon this discourse; for one, out of respect for elephants, but more so because within the American framework of democracy I have so greatly benefited. Thus, to liken the extension of America's efforts to democratize the civil administrations of Moslem states-even with the caveat "considering cultural sensitivities"-to the intestinal hardships of our beloved pacaderm is in itself cause for internal consternation, reflection, and a longing for interior relief.

The Divided Language
I was dismayed to learn the other day, that my all-time favourite George Bernard Shaw quote may not in fact have been uttered by him.Nevertheless, even the misquotation that Britain and the United States are two countries divided by a common language, will ring true with any British Expat who has tried to make their new home in America.
Garbage in Garbage out; California Blackouts
Why did the California energy crisis happen? Who is to blame? How come deregulation was a financial disaster? Some of the data in the research did not predict what would happen, probably because research people are not; go for it, make it happen entrepreneurs. So their report was just 1000s of pages of incessant data about nothing and basically BS.
