I agree with the fact that precautions need to be made to help fight it should it reach the US shores. However isn't it more important for it to be fought now in the countries where it is actually a problem? Wouldn't it be less costly and more efficient for Bush to head it off at the pass? Seems to me his costly plan it more smoke and mirrors to take the public's eyes off his failing war in Iraq and his vice president's chief of staff being indicted, his Republican majority leader being indicted, his pick for the supreme court being shot down by his own party. It's hard to believe he hasn't accepted defeat yet.
