Clinton orders stockpile of antibioticsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Just heard on the 7:00 news that Clinton has ordered the stockpiling of anitibiotics and other meds against the possibility of "Biological Terrorism." Earlier this month, the govt. practiced "Table Top War Games" regarding the mobilization of emergency services, civilian and military, and isolation of regional populations, again in the event of "Biological Terrorists" I will give the govt the benefit of the doubt and conceed there may be such a threat. All of these tactics however would apply very nicely for when TSHTF. Probably just a coincidence, right?

Unfortunately, this is a coincidence. I say "unfortunately", since I'd much rather have it be a govt conspiracy versus a reaction to a very definite threat. This biological terrorism thing is very real, and likely to become more-than-evident to the public in the near future. In fact, it is so real and so immiment, that even our lethargic govt is taking some action.
Doubt this? Check out this link:
And there are dozens of similar reports on the web.

There is no "doubt" here. It is exactly as you figure. I recently encountered an item on the local news exploring the arrival of certain United States Marine Corps tacticians in Chicago to discuss the "ins and outs" of city warfare. I suspect their real mission was twofold: to get the lay of the land and to let that other army , the inner city gangs, know that they can expect more than a police response should they decide to unearth new economic frontiers when TSHTF.
