This is yet another shocking example of the human species genius & wisdom being used to create something that has only potential for misery &
Power, recognition & evil are the only reasons I can imagine that would prompt someone to develop horrors such as these.
Now Keim, who chairs the US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB), and other members of the body, have a very difficult decision to
make. Fouchier wants his study to be published. So does virologist Yoshihiro Kawaoka, who led similar research in collaboration with the University of
Wisconsin, Madison, and the University of Tokyo, and reached comparable results. And it is up to NSABB to give them the green light.
It appears that Fouchier wants his work recognized.
If the NSABB refuse, its worrying to think where he would take this information to gain that recognition.
As several posters have stated, this is only one such virus that we we have been made aware of.
The fact that there would be others working on the same destructive threats, is a sad truth.
I only pray that just as there are brilliant people working on evil, that there are more genius's working only for the good of humanity.
