Newt Gingrich, a former presidential candidate and former Speaker of the House asks, "When will the Western world decide to be serious about confronting this threat? After there is a biological or chemical attack in one of these cities–or worse?"
Denial? Some of global psychological disorder that does not allow us to face the truth? WTF?
