Frightened of Ebola?

On the ABC’s Q&A program last night, one of the viewers tweeted ‘there is no oil in ebola’. At this time the panel was debating why Australia wasn’t sending over teams of doctors and nurses to help West Africa cope with ebola. This tweet wasn’t as inane as it first appeared.

From the moment I heard the media hysteria over the deaths  in West Africa from ebola I’ve been wondering about this current outbreak and if it is as serious as we are being purposely led to believe. All along I have felt that this is no normal disease. But the news reports sound serious and frightening: The UN health agency says that at least 4,033 people have died from confirmed, probable or suspected cases of ebola and a UN peacekeeping force is being proposed to control the international health crisis. Health workers are among those most at risk of catching the disease with ninety-five having died from the virus in Liberia. This could be explained by the fact that the workers would have been affected by, or vaccinated with some chemical that causes this strange, deadly, but fake disease. Liberians and Nigerians are waking up to what is going on and are now beginning to expel the Red Cross who are said to be administering these vaccinations.

The internet is alive with explanations about ebola: One is that a chemical via a vaccine has been introduced into West Africa and this is making the people sick and die. The purpose is to present a reason for US troops to be on the ground in Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Newly realised West African oil reserves are most attractive to the west but it’s not only oil, it’s also diamonds. Sierra Leone is the world’s largest supplier of diamonds and for the past four months  workers have been on strike due to their shocking working conditions. When miners refuse to work, troops are needed to force the cheap labour to work the mines.

Then there’s the hysteria that will frighten the rest of the world and see its populations ready to accept the vaccines and medications for ebola and whatever ‘new disease’ comes along.

This most probably sounds conspiratorial. But what if this is the way the world really works. We know that the west invaded the middle east and continues to do so, to control its access to oil. There had to be a reason to invade Iraq in 2003 and the pretence of ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ was used to achieve this. Are we in danger of believing another enormous lie and killing thousands of innocent people along the way?

Of one thing I am sure, we are not being told the truth about ebola.
