I was xc skiing today and had time to think and reflect. I think they key here is the conference held in NYC in October … see posts below. Suppose these are real people, and not spooks, but people who believe that we can have a virus pandemic, having studied Michael Crichton (Andromeda Strain) and Stephen King (The Stand). If that is the case, they want to test our preparedness and measure the fallout of such a pandemic. So they decide, with government approvals around the world, to run a drill. News media, as always is compliant.
What are they measuring? Market responses, public cooperation, medical care capability, police and military preparedness, other stuff I cannot think of as I tap this out and drink a Voodoo Ranger. But if they merely tell us it is a drill, they do not get good feedback. As far as the public is concerned, we must think it is real.
I like that idea because it takes the evil out of it, and merely relegates it to groupthink and stupidity. The idea that we can have a virus pandemic is unlikely. Keep in mind, viruses do exist, have been isolated and purified … chicken pox, mumps, rubella, common cold, influenza, etc. I am not an all-or-none thinker, especially having suffered three weeks earlier this year with an upper resperatory infection, aka, a cold. It was not bacterial, I was not infected by toxins. That leaves a virus.
All of these outbreaks follow a normal pattern, spread, containment, taking a toll on the vulnerable. Flu kills thousdands each year just in the US, but does not harm people who are healthy.
If I am right about this, everything we see is scripted, hence the spook markers, 33s and 8s and 11s up the ying yang. And, most encouraging, if our commenter Anna from Italy is real, then the drill is scheduled to end in April.
PS: This would also explain why the virus was never isolated or purified. They just grabbed something off the shelf and ran with it. Now China and the US are arguing about where it originated, classic misdirection.
