"beware of government, politicans and world leaders"... No $hit sherlock.. Look what they spent nearly 1/2 billion on:
The U.S. government has awarded a $433-million contract to pharmaceutical company Siga Technologies for 1.7 million doses of an experimental smallpox drug called ST-246 (Tecovirimat).
In this time of limited resources and heavy budget deficits, the decision to spend nearly half a billion dollars to stockpile a drug of questionable safety and effectiveness, for a strictly theoretical danger, is puzzling -- and that is an extreme understatement.
Smallpox Drug Given FDA "Fast-Track" Status, Despite No Imminent Risk
Siga's ST-246, which reportedly works by blocking the ability of the smallpox viruses to spread to other cells, has been granted "fast-track" status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Under this accelerated approval process, experimental drugs are brought to market sooner, even though they've only been tested on a small number of people and their effects and safety risks are not clearly understood.
Unfortunately, there are serious, and sometimes fatal consequences of bringing drugs to market without adequate safety testing -- and it is unclear why there is an urgent need for this drug that would warrant "fast-track" approval.
Even Siga's Web site notes smallpox is "no longer found in the natural environment."
The U.S. government is claiming the need to stockpile the drug in order to strengthen U.S. preparedness should the virus be used as a biological weapon in a terrorist attack. But, reportedly, smallpox is not in the hands of a terrorist group; in all probability, only the U.S. government and a Russian science institute have the virus. Sounds like a possible Blackops is coming down then Martial law!!
As reported by the Los Angeles Times:
"Once feared for its grotesque pustules and 30% death rate, smallpox was eradicated worldwide as of 1978 and is known to exist only in the locked freezers of a Russian scientific institute and the U.S. government. There is no credible evidence that any other country or a terrorist group possesses smallpox."
