found this article interesting even if from 2010 with all that has been happening lately

n the zombie flicks 28 Days Later and I Am Legend, an unstoppable viral plague sweeps across humanity, transforming people into mindless monsters with cannibalistic tendencies.

Though dead humans can't come back to life, certain viruses can induce such aggressive, zombie-like behavior, scientists say in the new National Geographic Channel documentary The Truth Behind Zombies, premiering Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. (National Geographic News is part of the National Geographic Society, which part-owns the National Geographic Channel.)

For instance, rabies—a viral disease that infects the central nervous system—can drive people to be violently mad, according to Samita Andreansky, a virologist at the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine in Florida who also appears in the documentary.

Combine rabies with the ability of a flu virus to spread quickly through the air, and you might have the makings of a zombie apocalypse.

CDC man said it was Mycoplasma based infection. I know the military has been researching this for a long time and it's also what they should be looking into when it comes to the the Gulf War Illness. IF they wanted to. Probably not since they created it.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
