    President's Letter

    My fellow Americans,

    Once again, nature has presented us with a daunting challenge: the possibility of an influenza pandemic.

    Most of us are accustomed to seasonal influenza, or "the flu," a viral infection that continues to be a significant public health challenge. From time to time, changes in the influenza virus result in a new strain to which people have never been exposed. These new strains have the potential to sweep the globe, causing millions of illnesses, in what is called a pandemic.

    A new strain of influenza virus has been found in birds in Asia, and has shown that it can infect humans. If this virus undergoes further change, it could very well result in the next human pandemic.

    We have an opportunity to prepare ourselves, our Nation, and our world to fight this potentially devastating outbreak of infectious disease.

    The National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza presents our approach to address the threat of pandemic influenza, whether it results from the strain currently in birds in Asia or another influenza virus. It outlines how we intend to prepare, detect, and respond to a pandemic. It also outlines the important roles to be played not only by the Federal government, but also by State and local governments, private industry, our international partners, and most importantly individual citizens, including you and your families.

    While your government will do much to prepare for a pandemic, individual action and individual responsibility are necessary for the success of any measures. Not only should you take action to protect yourself and your families, you should also take action to prevent the spread of influenza if you or anyone in your family becomes ill.

    Together we will confront this emerging threat and together, as Americans, we will be prepared to protect our families, our communities, this great Nation, and our world.

    Right now here is my response if there were an avian flu pandemic approaching the US:

    When in danger,
    when in doubt,
    run in circles--
    scream and shout!

    The border will be moved to the threshold of your home LE via the nice police officers and multinational troops wearing black masks and pointing their German submachines gun at you. Get ready for mandatory vaccines and no recourse to legal action if you or your family are injured by them even if they are "experimental" thanks to S. 1873.
