Zyuganov: US behind bird flu

On Tuesday, Russian communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov went public with his theory that the US is behind the bird flu. Apparently, the spread of bird flu is to be an effect of American biological warfare. Zyuganov's own comment says it all: "Isn't it strange that not a single duck has died in America." Now I only wonder what other diseases Zyuganov might have blamed the US for. AIDS is an obivous candidate, but what more?

The perfect conspiracy would be the U.S. behind Russian communism. ;)

Conspiracy theories are simplu so charming! There is actually one that I would want to follow up on, namely that of KGB being behind the Russian chaos of the 1990's in order to seize power in time for the millennium. There is actually one Russian newspaper article from 1990 by a prominent Russian academic, which describes exactly this and the development up till Putin's seizure of power. Of course, this is total humbug, but what fun to make mockery out of it. We'll see if I, on occasion can find the article somewhere in my boxes and write a piece on it.
