This is another critical program that is being delayed by a ridiculous argument over a wall to protect us against what? Poor terrorized refugees in search of the American dream? In contrast, scientists predict that a pandemic against which we have little or no resistance is pretty much inevitable. It is also possible that terrorists will use diseases or chemicals as a method of killing large numbers of people. Panic and mass casualties could follow. Has everyone forgotten how freaked out we all were about Anthrax and Ebola? A contagious bird flu or other easily transmitted disease will eventually reach our shores. It could kill millions and no wall will protect us. Preparation will be critical to saving lives. We need to start now.
