why is this a military stub? tepi (talk) 18:53, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

I don't see a reason either so I removed it. Biosthmors (talk) 18:56, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Because its origin and usage are supposedly unknown. To be clearer: because of its possible usages. Links with this and this are possible. Wakari07 (talk) 19:57, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Anything is "possible", but where is your WP:MEDRS? Biosthmors (talk) 20:09, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
One can use non-MEDRS in a society and culture section, for example, but we'd still need WP:RS to verify this sort of speculation is not just some fringe theory. Biosthmors (talk) 20:21, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
No, we need clear logic and adamant thinking. Wakari07 (talk) 20:29, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
I think you're at the wrong website. This is Wikipedia. We need things to be verified before we start using our editorial judgement. Biosthmors (talk) 20:33, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
As I'm not a professional scientist, i cannot discuss more than the two publicly available newspaper sources. They, and the blurb, describe the best public knowledge available on August 23. We can evolve this (small) body, not bulldoze it. Wakari07 (talk) 20:52, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
We'd be lots better off using the NEJM study than newspaper articles. In my opinion, bulldoze the newspaper stuff and start over with real sources (that have a chance of being WP:MEDRS compliant). Biosthmors (talk) 21:10, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Problem is we have only the NEJM and the organised press coverage as 'real sources'. Wakari07 (talk) 21:13, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
So who decides this has nothing to do with military stuff? I protest and want the military stub back. Wakari07 (talk) 21:36, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Which article says this syndrome is a form of unconventional warfare? I have seen none, so that means your idea just amounts to original research, which is not allowed on Wikipedia.Fentener van Vlissingen (talk) 21:46, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Any factor (genetic or environmental or otherwise) used on this level can/must have strategic and tactical biowarfare consequences. Do you see how mustard gas started in 1822 AD? What if educated masses were conscious of this type of warfare earlier? Wakari07 (talk) 21:59, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
Read WP:OR!. Fentener van Vlissingen (talk) 22:07, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
The worldwide development of this story over the last week makes me sick. Everybody talks about a disease, still nobody about fundamental health. This is a significant context being removed in an organised way. Point taken. Wakari07 (talk) 22:18, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
