Military planning for possible H1N1 outbreak

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The U.S. military wants to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials.

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilencesStrongs 3061: loimos, loy´-mos; of uncertain affinity; a plague (literally, the disease, or figuratively, a pest):—pestilence(-t) and earthquakes, in divers places.”
—Matthew 24:7

The proposal is awaiting final approval from Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The officials would not be identified because the proposal from U.S. Northern Command’s Gen. Victor Renuart has not been approved by the secretary.

The plan calls for military task forces to work in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. There is no final decision on how the military effort would be manned, but one source said it would likely include personnel from all branches of the military.

It has yet to be determined how many troops would be needed and whether they would come from the active duty or the National Guard and Reserve forces.

Civilian authorities would lead any relief efforts in the event of a major outbreak, the official said. The military, as they would for a natural disaster or other significant emergency situation, could provide support and fulfill any tasks that civilian authorities could not, such as air transport or testing of large numbers of viral samples from infected patients.

As a first step, Gates is being asked to sign a so-called “execution order” that would authorize the military to begin to conduct the detailed planning to execute the proposed plan.

Orders to deploy actual forces would be reviewed later, depending on how much of a health threat the flu poses this fall, the officials said.

    This sounds like a gov’t plot to do something far more sinister. Let’s see, first it would be any one who has symptoms. Then anyone in their household. Then a neighborhood. A work place. Maybe they will decide that certain groups are higher risk and need to be quarantined. Hmmm… Perhaps this will just be a warm-up for similar future activity, only time shall tell.

    Get ready for martial law. The WHO and federal government are playing this swine flu up to the max in order to use it as a means to force vaccines on us and institute martial law. The vaccines will line the pockets of the pharmaceutical execs, some of whom are in government positions affecting decisions about public health. The martial law will allow the federal government to get the population accustomed to being controlled more tightly by soldiers and police.

    This is highly suspicious sounding. It takes little thought to see where it will lead us.

    COMPLIENCE is what they want. This is another “emergency”….. everyone MUST be vaccinated for “the greater good”.
    Of course there is always a chance there will be another emergency where COMPLIENCE is important.
    Perhaps even another?

    How many “emergencies” do we need before we have a Kritallnacht?

    The Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN) is a technical collaboration of existing institutions and networks who pool human and technical resources for the rapid identification, confirmation and response to outbreaks of international importance. The Network provides an operational framework to link this expertise and skill to keep the international community constantly alert to the threat of outbreaks and ready to respond.

    That is from the official WHO (World Health Organization)website. At a level 6 I would assume, I could be wrong, we fall under the jurisdiction of the UN who runs the WHO. IF that be the case and we were under UN regulations and UN’s governance…it would make sense that Robert Gates would be awaiting ‘his’ orders to then ‘give’ orders. We need to be cautious of this stuff. ESP. w/ the Obama Health Scare plan…that doesn’t need to pass as it is doing a fine job of distracting us all….something is being set into motion…

    Mixing with Gerald Celente’s predictions of the ‘greatest depression’ by 2012 and Peter Schiff’s hyper-stagflation predictions, martial law will probably be in America by 2013 to 2014, and the new facist state probably fully formed to take effective control from FEMA in around 2014-2015, after much devastation by the massive riots and revolution. Probably 20-40% of the American population will be in internment camps, more than half of that volunteer (due to the ‘greatest depression’, hyper-stagflation and after-events). The random violence and guerrilla fighting probably won’t be ever effectively eliminated.

    TRUST in the LORD with ALL your heart, and lean not on your own understanding: In ALL your ways acknowledge HIM, and HE shall direct your paths. DO NOT be wise in your own eyes; FEAR the LORD and DEPART from evil.

    I may be a bit naive but I had planned on getting the flu and H1N1 vaccine when available. I work in a busy ED and have so for many years. When i began getting the flu vaccine a few years ago, i stopped getting the flu. I give the glory to God for making me healthy despite taking care of many contagious cases..Praise Him.
    The regular flu most adversely affects the very young, older people or anyone with chronic illness. The H1N1 not only does that, but has seriously affected relatively healthy people. I would advise all to pray about this , praying God will intervene in our behalf…He is a good God and the healer of all .
