A friend of mine retired as a field assigned SF Colonel in August 2001.
He took what looked to be an interesting, but backwaters position at
FEMA for his post miltiary work. An office dealing with FEMA response to
Weapons of Mass Destruction. I'll let all of you out there guess how
many times I have spoke to him since 9/11... (hint, probably not much
more than his wife and kids).
>From a friend I have who is in the inactive reserves (high rank) who was

>In response to the Dr's message that I forwarded to him bout the Potassium
>Iodine pills. His reply:
>"Hmmmmmmmmmm...I have my tablets....plenty of each....they were distributed
>some time ago....
>I have no comment beyond that..."

>> Before I retired I moonlighted as a NBC Consultant. Dr. Mike here is what
>> have to say about it all this.
>> 1. In regards to Potassium Iodine it is better to have it and not need it
>> than to need it and not have it. It is the cheapest insurance that you can
>> have and it works for terrorist dirty bombs, nuclear accidents and WW III.
>> As a Doctor I don't have to tell you this. This is really for the others
>> the list to find fault with and they will. I am smart enough to know that
>> is not "if", but "when" all this will happen and it eventually will. I
>> had my Potassium Iodine pills for ten years now and I feel very
>> with having them and not needing them so far.
>> 2. In regards to the Duct Tape and plastic again it is better to have it
>> not need it than to need it and not have it. Again as a Doctor you know
>> advantage of having the husband go boil water. The biggest problem with
>> is the lack of information by the Government or media. Sealing up too soon
>> will make you run out of breathable air. Sealing up too late will not help
>> at all. Sealing up at the right time gives you the one chance in a hundred
>> to save your ass when you have a government that no longer cares about
>> Defense. If I had to give the order to release the information to buy Duct
>> Tape and Plastic myself here is what I would have said: Buy your Duct Tape
>> and Plastic as a precautionary measure. Have it, but wait for proper
>> notification to use it. If you are scared and want to use it now then by
>> means do the windows, but not the doors. You do not want to cut off your
>> supply of oxygen until the time comes. It will not hurt to do just the
>> windows. In fact it should help lower your heating cost in the Winter
>> 3. In regards to stock pileing antibiotics. Be sure to buy only the
>> ones. The ones mentioned so far are some of the right ones. You really
>> three choices here. First you buy now while you can get them. Two to wait
>> until you need them and there are none and three to wait for the
>> to give them to you when something happens. Yea right. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. I
>> needed a good laugh. The real problem with number three is that after you
>> show the first symptoms it is too late. Even the hospitals and doctors
>> not waste antibiotics on a dead person, but you know this all this Dr.
>> because you are a Doctor. Only propolatics will work and you know this
>> Again this is for the list to find fault with and they will.
>> So Dr. Mike thanks for sharing your information. I appreciate that little
>> piece of information. I am sure there are other that do also. To the ones
>> that don't and don't like mine either just use your delete key.
