007 License to Kill

Thanks to our friends at NVIC (National Vaccine Information Center), Barbara Loe Fisher and Kathi Williams, for alerting us to this story: Sean Connery may star in a movie about vaccines as the cause of the Gulf War Syndrome.

The former James Bond actor, who earlier this week said he did not want to act again, has been in contact with Ken McClure about bringing his controversial novel The Gulf Conspiracy to the big screen...

...In the novel, a vaccine designed by British scientists becomes contaminated in a freak accident, and military leaders decide that it must remain a secret. Twelve years later, veterans are dying from a Gulf War Syndrome.

Dr McClure is a former medical researcher and holds a PhD in microbial genetics.

He says that although the book is a thriller, he did a year's research beforehand and was "absolutely convinced" by the end of it that it was caused by vaccinations.

Even vaccines that are not "contaminated in a freak accident" are believed by many to cause harm to the immune system and the development of the myelin sheath of the spinal column and brain. The death of reporter David Blume, blamed on an embolism caused by bodily constraint in the close quarters of the tank he was riding in at the beginning of the Iraq invasion, may have initially been exacerbated by the probable "cocktail" of vaccines he took prior to going on his assignment.

The promotion of doubt and concern about vaccines that the proposed Connery film would engender, is worth the price of admission, and then some. Stop blathering on with Monneypenny, Bond, and get on with it!
