HIV Mechanism: 'Suicide, Not Murder

In uncontrolled HIV infection, an over-the-top immune response causes much of the damage that leads to AIDS, researchers are reporting.

The process is "much more of a cellular suicide than a viral murder," according to Warner Greene, MD, PhD, of the Gladstone Institutes and the University of California San Francisco.

I make an odd parallel

IMO our approach to terrorism is similar. We had an over active immune response to 9-11. That response damaged out nation much more than terrorism itself ever did.

I know that someone can be convicted for manslaughter if said individual infects someone with the HIV virus.

I remember one of those evil videos he liked to send over and in one he predicted that the U.S. of A. would do the Self Destructo dance out of fear and overreaction. If I get bored, I'll try to find it.

I remember those as well. As I stated, it's definitely what he wanted; predicted - I'm not so sure. Hmm
