    I noted that the W.H.O. is downplaying this. That, my friends, is a bad sign. They can't know at this point in time. And, their reputation and $2 gets you a cup of coffee...

    At least they admit that an epidemic is on foot.

    The Chinese communist party has traditionally been suppressing bad news such as they were in the latest bird flu case that wiped out communities in China.

      That's a cultural thing. Downplay how bad it it so save face. Fukashima..."Oh we have it under control..." KABOOM! The roof flies off...

        How is it a cultural think?

        It is a documented fact that communist countries always put natural disasters occurring in the US and other Western states on the front page to discourage their citizens from longing for the life there. That included plagues as well, while at the same time they effectively blocked any info on their own soil.

        It is not a cultural thing. It is communist propaganda.

          I've played enough golf with south east and far east guys to see a mindset of "Oh, I hit my ball towards those guys over there. But, I'm too embarrassed to yell "fore!""...haha....
