Diane Rehm's story this morning gave me a jolt. 80% of the drugs we are taking in the USA are coming from China and India and some of them are being pulled because of this: Cipro is the one I remember from hearing just part of this program this morning.
What happens if we get into a dispute with China or India? What happens if transportation is disrupted by natural disaster or some other emergency?
It is insane to leave our nation vulnerable in this way. We have zillions of dollars invested in the military and national security state, but we can't produce antibiotics and other life saving drugs here?
This is terribly frightening.
