Bird flu idiocy - who's running this country?

I'm sitting here listening to the 7.30 report on a bird flu exercise. Bizarely, it is imagined that human bird flu is going to enter Australia courtesy of an infected bird. Surely, it's obvious to blind freddy that bird flu will enter Australia through a human vector once it has become established in the human population from a cross over (if one occurs) in Africa, China, etc. etc.
I can't believe this crap is being taken seriously!
The virus that enters Australia through a human vector will result in rapid spread of the virus through a port and then outwards. The spread of the 1919 epidemic from Newcastle and Melbourne is well described.
Slaughtering birds is superstitious nonsense which seems to be de rigeur for these times.
