A discussion in The Oval Office


Recommended Posts

I was my Marine rifle company NBC training NCO. In about 1985 we war gamed this ****. Did it first with the map from the board game Risk. Then with a large world map. Our predictions were pretty good but the death toll was higher at this point. 

Biggest difference? We predicted an initiation point in an African bushmeat market instead of a Chinese wet market. We also predicted a modified virus getting into the animal population and then into the market. We also predicted it would be sexually transmitted as well as airborne. So at least we got that wrong. 

We were spot on with our prediction of a “Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste” response by our own government.
