A reliable source out of south Florida has it on good authority that the 101st Airborne will soon be returning home and attending special training in advance of an outbreak of avian flu stateside.

In recent days Avian (bird) Flu has been discovered in European fowl and this outbreak migrated from Asia where hundreds were made ill from contact with infected birds.  As many as 60 Asians died from the outbreak.

The U.S. Government's concern is that the flu, which presently is only transmitted from direct contact between infected birds and humans, may mutate and thus have the ability to be transferred from human to human.  This doomsday scenerio would be reminicent of the flu outbreak of 1918 where millions world-wide died and approx. one-half million U.S. citizens died from the pandemic.

Word has it that President Bush has implemented a plan (code name:  Blue Bird) to be executed in the event the flu virus mutates.  If the event it happens, Bush will, by executive order, require the elite 101st Airborne to be dispatched to different locals along the migration pathways of the outbreak to insure that nation-wide spreading of the disease does not take place.  Quarantines will be mandatory and enforcement will be "shoot to kill" anyone breaking the quarantine lines.

Bush was quoted as saying: "It doesn't matter if they're from the blue states or the red states.  You get the flu... well... too bad for you.  Shoot the poor bastards and put them out of their misery."

Good one but you're too predictable LD.

I heard it is actually called operation blue bird because of the plan’s inclusion of Blue Bird school buses.  The epidemic will be initiated as an effort to bail out burdened pension plans and social security.  While public health traditionally exists at the state level, CDC guidelines provide information for initiating the epidemic.

The only thing the 101st will be doing for about the next year is killing bad guys in Iraq.

If that flu really breaks out, there are not enough troops to do  jack shit.   A Division might be able to enforce a quarantine on a city but an entire State, no damn way.

A reliable source in Dashmont, Idaho has it on good authority that I have a 24" penis, and I am going to use it to impregnate the entire New Orleans Saints cheerleading squad.

I wonder if your source knows my source?

60 people dead and it's a pandemic.

Get real. Where are these loonatics getting their information?

What was it last year Not enough Flu vaccines and many people will die. and then less died last year than normally die after getting the flu shot.

Lets worry about real issues such as kicking terrorists asses.
