What I think could have happened is that either accidentally or intentionally this disease was brought to the Southern states.
Either this disease has been passed from human to human, as in those Gulf war veterans who contracted the disease and came back to the U.S. brought
the disease here, or it could be possible that a small colony of sandflies found their way into an aircraft coming to the states from Iraq, and made a
home here. Or, someone, possibly terrorists intentionally brought the disease to the U.S.
