If It Looks Like War...

....and sounds like war, then it must be war? The following article makes you stop and think. I am posting the entire article here because Yahoo News has a habit of deleting their articles after a few days. Since this is yesterday's story, you can probably view this link for the next 7 days or so.

Western Jets Attack Radar in Iraqi 'No-Fly' Zone

Mon Feb 17,11:00 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Aircraft taking part in U.S.-British patrols over Iraqi "no-fly" zones attacked an Iraqi air defense radar on Monday, in the seventh strike in 10 days, the U.S. military said.

The U.S. Central Command, which has responsibility for the Gulf region, said the jets launched guided weapons against a mobile early-warning radar near Ar Rutbah, about 250 miles southwest of Baghdad. The strike occurred at about 4:10 p.m. EST, the military said.

"The coalition executed today's strike after Iraqi forces moved the mobile radar into the southern no-fly zone where it was a threat to coalition aircraft," Central Command said in a news release.

U.S. and British jets have been increasingly attacking air defense missiles, radar and communications in Iraq's northern and southern no-fly zones over the past several months.

Both the United States and Britain have massed forces in the Gulf region for a possible invasion of Iraq.

:::No Need For Panic:::

Here is an Article from Dr. Sherri Tenpenny on expelling the myths of Smallpox and what we can do to protect ourselves if there is an outbreak.

Smallpox outbreak: What to do


1. Smallpox is NOT highly contagious. You have time. Don’t panic.

2. Smallpox is only spread by close contact of less than 6 feet for at least 6-7 days. You aren’t that close to coworkers or commuters.

3. Treatment for smallpox should be surveillance and containment, without vaccination.

4. Smallpox is not highly fatal. There are treatments for smallpox.

5. The vaccine will not protect you from getting the infection. The vaccine has high complication rates, is an experimental drug and there are many contraindications.

We need to just say NO by affirming the following:

I will avoid fear.

I will seek alternatives to the forced medical experimentation.

I will avoid being injected with an experimental new drug based on a “hunch” or based on something that happened hundreds or thousands of miles from where I live.

I will resist the government’s efforts to take away my right to do what I believe is best for my body.

I will take personal responsibility for my heath and for the health of my family.
