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?
