Time to let our guard down?Posted by Ed Davis, DPM on 10/10/03 at 14:50 (133467)
Al Queda is after weaponized anthrax.
I don't think we can let our guard down for a moment in our war on terror.

I've heard a lot of people say that nuclear weapons are what scare them most.
Not me. I'm not very afraid of nuclear weapons. I've pretty much decided I just want to get as close as I can to a mushroom cloud, if I see one... because the last to die will have it a lot worse.
But BIOLOGICAL weapons, those terrify me. I would feel like I had to try to help, of course, but it would be SO easy to create a disease too virulent for our medical communities to contain or quarantine. (We all saw what happened with SARS... what WAS that, anyway?)
