Mr Gates has officially issued a warning and it makes perfect sense. While the country is occupied with other threats of war, we are not thinking enough about Bioterrorism, an attack that could prove quite deadly. He warns that this kind of assault could kill millions of Americans. He was quoted as saying:

“Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year. And they say there is a reasonable probability the world will experience such an outbreak in the next 10 to 15 years.”

I think we better pay attention!
