Third Child In Turkey Dies From Bird FluTopics: Health Issues
A third child from the same family has died in a Turkish hospital where she was being treated for bird flu. Two siblings had already died from the H5N1 virus (avian influenza).
The children lived in a remote rural district of eastern Turkey near the Armenian border. A six-year-old brother is also being treated for the same disease in the hospital.From another news source we learn that doctors consider the condition of the brother to be critical, and that nine patients in the hospital have been officially diagnosed with bird flu, and three of these are in a serious condition. Of interest is that they died despite treatment with Tamiflu, the antiviral drug that is the only known defence against the infection.

And remember, it is this fanatic who is going to have 2-3 nuclear weapons in his hands by March.
Meanwhile, the world stands by, too frozen in political correctness to do anything to defend itself. Obviously an airstrike is needed the question is who's going to pull it off...the US or the Israelis???
