I was sort of waiting for this. There always seems to be some Russian politician ready to make some crazy statement for tabloid headlines (don't worry, we have several of them here also). Anyway, any disease ... such as HIV ... seems to land at the feet of an evil and conniving U.S. I mean, for such a lazy and fat nation, we surely are ingenious, evil, and unwise.
Russian Communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov has blamed the United States for the spread of avian influenza, or bird flu, in a number of European countries, including Russia.Mr. Zyuganov forgot the ducks dying in Southeast Asia. It is amazing that a Russian politician calling the U.S. responsible for some sinister evil plot (MuuHAHAHAHA!) - is about as predictable as a U.S. politician calling Russia responsible for suppressing their citizens rights.
"The forms of warfare are changing. It's strange that not a single duck has yet died in America - they are all dying in Russia and European countries. This makes one seriously wonder why," Zyuganov said at a press conference at the Interfax main office on Tuesday.
Zyuganov said that he has good knowledge of war gases as he dealt with them during his army service. "I tested all kinds of war gases at a range myself," he said.
Asked to be more precise as to whether he believes the bird flu outbreak could be a deliberate attack by the U.S., Zyuganov answered positively. "I not only suggest this, I know very well how this can be arranged. There is nothing strange here," he said.
