US involved in bird flu conspiracy: Indonesia

Indonesia’s Health Minister has suggested that the United States may be involved in a conspiracy to use the bird flu virus to develop biological weapons.
The extraordinary allegation is included in a new book, endorsed by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, which describes Indonesia’s fight to assert its ownership of its virulent strains of avian influenza.
Concerns over that issue prompted Indonesia last year to stop sharing virus samples with the World Health Organization as Jakarta correspondent Geoff Thompson reports. http://www.abc.net.au/am/content/2008/s2167325.htm

"... advanced forms of biological warfare
that can “target” specific genotypes may
transform biological warfare from the realm
of terror to a politically useful tool."

McUnconstitutional

The Constitution has little relevance to the government, but still it's interesting to note that the crazed John McCain was born, to his state-connected parents, in the Panama Canal Zone. The Zone, the product of US imperialism under the crazed Teddy Roosevelt, was never officially US territory. That is, McCain was born in a foreign country, and therefore not eligible to be president, according to the Constitution. http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/019165.html

MPs kept in the dark over EU treaty

MPs are being asked to vote on the revised EU treaty without key information about the powers it will create, a leaked document suggests.
The paper, from the office of the president of the EU, reveals that matters such as the possibility of a European army and the powers of an EU president will not be determined until after the revived constitution has been pushed through. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/politics/article3257641.ece

The Testimony of a US ex-marine, who went to fight in Iraq

For nearly 12 years, staff sergeant Jimmy Massey was a hard-hearted US marine. He
arrived in Iraq in March 2003 as part of US invasion troops with 45 men under his
command; they did not hesitate at killing innocent civilians. Massey attended the
most recent Caracas Book Fair, where he presented his book "Cowboys of Hell," a
crude testimony about the genocide being committed every day by the United States against the Iraqi people. The ex-marine gave an interview to Cuban journalist Rosa Mirian Elizalde.

Professionals' Statement Calling for an End to Water Fluoridation

1. The publication in 2006 of a 500-page review of fluoride’s toxicology by a distinguished panel appointed by the National Research Council of the National Academies (NRC, 2006). The NRC report concluded that the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) safe drinking water standard for fluoride (i.e. maximum contaminant level goal or MCLG) of 4 parts per million (ppm) is unsafe and should be lowered. Despite over 60 years of fluoridation, the report listed many basic research questions that have not been addressed. Still, the panel reviewed a large body of literature in which fluoride has a statistically significant association with a wide range of adverse effects. These include an increased risk of bone fractures, decreased thyroid function, lowered IQ, arthritic-like conditions, dental fluorosis and, possibly, osteosarcoma.
