THE RECENT "DARK WINTER" EXERCISE:

A Chilling Report

Quite recently, the Department of Homeland Security conducted another "Dark Winter" exercise.The results were not heartening.

In spite of millions that have been spent on Biodefense research,the nation is no more capable of dealing with a mass outbreak of communicable disease than it was 10 years ago.

If anything,because of the short-sighted, overly optimistic efforts of the World Health Organization,we are extremely vulnerable to smallpox.

When smallpox was "eradicated"-some 30 years ago- WHO and its supporters failed to take into account one or more of the world's nations might cheat.

Most of the world's stockpile of vaccine was destroyed - at the urging of WHO and its supporters. One country,which did not destroy its vaccines was Russia - for excellent reasons:While the rest of the world was ooh-ing and aah-ing about "international cooperation", the Russians were growing smallpox virus - by the ton !

Not only did they create vast stockpiles of "The Red Death",they also developed ,built,and tested special ICBMs with freezer compartments-designed to infect whole populations with the dreaded disease.

The breakup of the old Soviet Union led to almost insane neglect of the Russian biowar stockpiles,and we must assume at least part of them have fallen into the hands of terrorists-or hostile regimes (of which there is no shortage !)

If you don't mind a few sleepless nights,click here to learn how the game turned out !
