Brazil’s Lula Asks Media Not to Play Terrorism with Swine Flu

Swine fly epidemic Brazil is prepared to face the challenge brought by the swine flu, according to Brazilian president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who on Wednesday, April 29, called for caution when dealing with the disease information. "Let us not play terrorism with the disease," said the Brazilian leader.

"We have the necessary medicines for our people and we are doing the right checking at international airports and sea terminals," said Lula previous to his meeting with his Peruvian counterpart Alan Garcí­a.

The Brazilian president said "we are facing a moment of caution and prevention, and let us not play terrorism." He called on the media for "responsibility" so as not to create panic among the population.

So far Brazil has some twenty suspect cases in several states, but none have been confirmed. The Brazilian population is estimated in 180 million.

In related news the Brazilian pork industry requested from the World Health Organization to cease identifying the deadly outbreak in Mexico as "swine flu" because the name is having a negative impact on the whole industry and there's no scientific evidence to prove such is the case.

The name "swine flu" has triggered fears that the infection can originate in the consumption of pork and sub products, which has been denied point blank by WHO authorities, but has not impeded Russia and China to ban the import of pork from those countries where the flu has been confirmed.

    This IS Bio-terrorism….
    It’s best not to be naive. Nao adianta nada. 😉
    There is a need to control the population now with the economy the way it is and will be for awhile. It’s survival of the fittest from here on out.
    Here is a prophecy that applies
    [b]À‚ There is a generation whose teeth are swords and whose jawbones are slaughtering knives, to eat up the afflicted ones off the earth and the poor ones from among mankind
    Proverbs 30:14[/b]

    This is also one more way of getting all governments on the same page.

    [b]À¢€œAnd the ten horns that you saw mean ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they do receive authority as kings one hour with the wild beast. 13À‚ These have one thought, and so they give their power and authority to the wild beast. 1
    Revelation 17:12,13[/b]
    [b]And I saw three unclean inspired expressions [that looked] like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14À‚ They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and perform signs, and they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.
    Revelation 16:13,14[/b]

    It is best to focus on the “Good News” and don’t let “them” scare you.

    [b]À¢€œAnd in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite;
    Daniel 2:44[/b]
    [b]À¢€œYOU must pray, then, this way:
    À¢€œÀ¢€˜Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. 10À‚ Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.
    Mattlhew 6:9,10[/b]
    Don’t let these events scare you.. Search for more TRUTH and have Faith
    Peace To All 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Smithfield aka Granjas Caroll, Mexico :Watch out, porkies, Poland is next on the list
    ” We should not be surprised that the Swine Flu burbled to the surface in an overcrowded, hot,fetid,factory farm that ”processes” an estimated I million pigs a year, and that has been at the center of a local controversy involving desperately ill townspeople who have been sick since February, when 60% of the population of 3,000 sought medical treatment for a severe respiratory infection that some trace back to the farm’s manure lagoons, and the swarms of flies attracted to them.This town, La Gloria, is situated near the Granjas Caroll de Mexico pig farm, which is owned in part by Smithfield Foods a Virginia-based company that is the world’s largest producer of processed pork products.”

    For once I wholeheartedly agree with President Lula. I would certainly not like to see returning Brasilian visitors to the North American Continent and the incoming travelers from there to be harassed by the overzealous bureaucrats at our International Airports.
