23. are bombs dangerous? yes. Is pulling a fake bomb alert a distraction? yes
I think the OP's point is that much political hay is being made over something that may or may not materialize.
That does not mean the flu is not a nasty deadly thing. It just means that Bushco is using the threat of a nasty deadly thing to distract from the present troubles they're having, with the complicit media, and the added bonus of justifying martial law.

(haven't read the entire thread, someone else might have recapsulated this point already)
