[SpOT'd] Tactical Biowarfare: North Korea's Red Squirts Brigade (STEC) O104:H4

 (SpOT'd) Speculation O' The day

Our wild speculation of the day is that there will be another Outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O104:H4 and that it will (again) come at the hands of North Korea. Think of it as Montezuma's revenge but only more bloody, deadly, and purposefully delivered.  Call it  Kim Jong's ILL's revenge, if you will

The nature of such instances are often self limiting (hence tactical) but they do result in massive media awareness; have large financial affects on Agri-commerce; and are difficult to publicly tie back to the cause.

Of course this is all wild speculation based on tenuous connections, but it does not hurt to make sure that your raw foods are throughly washed/cooked and that one keeps one's hands washed as needed.
