USA-Mi28

USA-Mi29With all the current hysteria surrounding the current Swine Flu crisis, I thought that this product from WWII may prove useful. This product was designed after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour, as there was more hysteria (perhaps justified) that there could possibly be a chemical weapon attack on the United States.

As for the current Swine Flu crisis, what a lot of hype. We are now hearing that 39 Australians have the disease and that “people are going to die!!!” Umm… Australia has a total population of 20 million people. 39 people is a tiny number number compared to the whole population. While I understand that the problem could be serious, it is obvious that the media is blowing everything out of proportion to instill fear in people and to boost their own ratings. The more scared people are, the more they are going to watch the news to see what is going on.
