Our real enemy

Lessons from Swine Flu, and SARS and HIV/AIDS and TB and Ebola and ...

Isn't it time we all realize that we should stop killing each other and instead focus our resources on wiping out the true enemies of mankind - the harmful bacteria and viruses?

It is time we declare war on these critters.
It also makes business sense. After all, how long will mankind support the war machinery by creating imaginary enemies?

This threat is present and real and deadly.
Let us eliminate this threat first. We can resume fighting each other later.

Independence Day, the movie, has a soul stirring speech by the President of US. He ends it with saying, "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive!"

So, who is listening?
