Travel restrictions under consideration by the U.S. to prevent the spread of a new flu virus may be influenced by politics more than science, the World Health Organization’s chief said today.

WHO doesn’t recommend closing borders or restricting the movement of people or goods, Margaret Chan, director-general of the United Nations agency told leaders from health groups around the world in a conference call today. The disease, which may have caused more than 100 deaths and sickened more than 1,000 people, has spread too far and would be impossible to contain by closing borders, she said.

Re: Swine Flu

First off what they are talking about is nations completly closing all travel in and out. I'm just saying shut down the Mexican boarder where we know this came from and where people are dying.

Fine, so all the decisions made in response to this are because Obama doesn't want to rock the Latino vote. You're right, it's all about politics.

For you it seems it always turns to the evils of Obama and/or liberals

Can you just let it go for one minute? Couldn't you have simply asked "Why don't we close the border (note how there is no a in border) until the problem is solved, would that help?" instead of throwing the whole Latinos voting for Obama angle? That wouldn't have at all been possible would it?

I am an idiot for even engaging in this. Damn me!

Dude, read the f*cking quote. If cutting off ALL travel in and out wouldn't be of much help why would closing the borders in the fashion you suggest be any better? Cutting off travel in only certain ways would be even LESS effective. Jesus Christ.

What is the definition of an idealogue again?

Sorry I forgot Obama does no wrong and makes all of his decisions based off whats good for the country without ever thinking about which voters he might tick off.

Re: Swine Flu

An empty vessel should be treated with respect. Sure, most of the time they're useless but when drunk it's a good vomiting container. When trapped in a car for long duration with no restroom in sight it's a nice piss container. When your chewing tobacco is all dry by god that vessel comes in handy.

Firstdown............I hear ya man, but its not going to do any good. The Flu is already over the border. Its hit as far as New York City. There is nothing that we can do to contain this. We just have to treat it as best as possible. Unfortunately, Thats all that we can do at this point.

I gotta say, I was reading the posts on this, and they were getting annoying...I wasn't even going to post, but I saw this and it made me laugh. Seriously laughed out loud.

1st- This is NOT Obama's fault, and keep in mind how much I didn't like the idea of Obama in office. This is not a political issue. I'll throw dirt on Obama when he deserves to have dirt thrown on him, this is not one of those times. It's annoying to try to discuss something and politics are always thrown in. Let's move on.

2nd- there was a school out here, Mira Mesa, closed because of this. I guess there was a case and everyone freaked out. Just out of curiousity, how did this happen? Is it from the people eating infected pigs? I really don't know much about it, and to be honest, not going to do a whole lot of research on it when I have a lot of other things to do.
