Compared to this.

'Appalling irresponsibility': Senior scientists attack Chinese researchers for creating new strains of influenza virus in veterinary laboratory

This is no joke. We as a species survive influenza pandemics because there are many who have an immunity. This sort of "technology" could result in a strain few if any have an immunity to.

It is not wise to play with mother nature.....

I agree with everything you've said above, and while we're on the subject of deadly diseases, here's another threat that has great potential to cause great harm, and it's already here:

Previously believed no longer existing deadly diseases are being brought back into the United States by our federal government's failure to protect our borders. In the coming decades, our country will be spending millions of dollars to deal with the problem, and perhaps thousands of innocent Americans will die simply because our borders have not been protected.

Not to mention, maybe not weapons of mass destruction, but we're also experiencing the re-introduction of "bed bugs" throughout America.

Why are our borders so porous? Why?
Why are so many foreign nationals allowed to just stay in America when their visas expire?

I agree with the borders issue. If the Chinese think they have a vaccine, it will be easy enough to send a vector across the border. Couple that with government regulation and liability risks which has driven vaccine production overseas and we are a sitting duck.

Maybe the TSA should be harassing people coming into the country rather than those of use trying to fly within the country.
