Tropical Expat is having somewhat of a hiatus. It is actually quite time-consuming writing a blog, and at present I am spending a bit more time on my German study, but also I only want to write when I have something to say – normally something positive that people can actually use. Also, I am quite distressed – but not fearful – by the Malaysian Airline incidents this year, and now by the media hyping the Ebola outbreak.
So, despite the fact I have over 40 partly written blogs waiting in the wings (no pun intended – my imagination just took flight [oops]), now I am not in the mood to finish any of them at the moment, and have been also spending a lot of time reading what I can about the Malaysian Airlines flights, and Ebola.
Both of these matters have put me off any travel until I can get a handle on them and have a strategy, or until the situation stabilises. And travel is one of the topics I blog about – or presently am not as I am not travelling.
About the MAS flights I haven’t much useful to say. There are many anomalies in the stories , and I have read a lot of web sites, and many theories, but don’t have access to hard facts. I have been trying to form an opinion as to whether MAS is being targeted, and thus whether it is safe to continue to fly with them. MH17 was almost immediately used by western governments for political purposes – to blame Russia and promote sanctions and possible war – way before any evidence of anything was available. This is one of the hallmarks of a false flag operation, and there are others. I think MAS probably has been targeted, but if a third incident occurs it becomes too obvious, and thus hopefully won’t happen.
Christine Lagarde, IMF head, spent a little time talking about numerology and relevance of the number “7” this year in a January 15th speech – and many of the incidents and crashes do have a lot of 7’s associated with them. Just raw 7’s – no adding up or multiplying or anything complicated. Just check the dates and flight numbers, passenger numbers and even times of air crashes and incidents this year. And, of course, it is weird that the IMF head was talking about such esoteric matters.
So, where I am heading with this is that I would probably prefer to catch another airline other than MAS for international flights – Air Asia etc. if in the region. But I would also avoid any flight numbers or dates with a 7 in them. I certainly do not wish MAS any harm, and hope the truth is revealed to us and I can fly with them again.
I read that Ebola is very contagious, can be transmitted by aerosol, can survive for days outside of a host, has an incubation period of over a week, and has a death rate of 90%. One person on a plane sneezing could lead to many people catching it and then spreading it unknowingly all around the world. “At the epicentre of the current Ebola epidemic is the Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone, which houses a US a biosecurity level 2 bioweapons research lab with links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Soros Foundation.” says Rumor Mills, and and journalist Jane Burgermeister who writes about such matters, among others. I have read elsewhere that people in Africa suspect the western doctors from, among others, Médecins Sans Frontières of spreading Ebola through vaccines etc. and keep away or run from them.
So, where I am heading with this is, I am going to avoid any medical prophilaxis and prevention methods, and again minimise plane travel. Oh, and wash my hands more frequently than ever. I have been badly hurt by vaccines before, and avoid them at all costs, and they have had far worse effects on a friend of mine, who barely survived a vaccination for flu. I read that the cures for Ebola are colloidal silver or food grade peroxide, or possibly Vitamin C. I want to look into the protocols for usage of them as I haven’t yet found any.
Now if you don’t believe in conspiracies – two or more people plotting in secret to do something usually bad – then I think you are naive, but I don’t want to argue about it. I am just trying to present my opinion of some practical approaches. Which is what this blog is for, anyway.
