I agree that this is the best time to go before things change for the worse when most of Miami-dade pour into Cuba.

I was told that the police there when it comes to enforcing traffic laws is more efficient than Miami-dade's.

I was 2 yrs old when we left so I wouldn't know anything about Cuba but living in a badly run, no political,police standard third world called Miami-dade I have an idea.

HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE

The United States worked with Y. pestis as a potential biowarfare agent in the 1950's and 1960's before the old offensive biowarfare program was terminated by President Richard Nixon in 1969, and other countries are suspected of weaponizing this organism. The former Soviet Union had more than 10 institutes and thousands of scientists who worked with plague. During World War II, Unit 731 of the Japanese Army reportedly released plague-infected fleas from aircraft over Chinese cities. This method was cumbersome and unpredictable. The U.S. and Soviet Union developed the more reliable and effective method of aerosolizing the organism. The interest in the terrorist potential of plague was brought to light in 1995 when Larry Wayne Harris was arrested in Ohio for the illicit procurement of a Y. pestis culture through the mail. The contagious nature of pneumonic plague makes it particularly dangerous as a biological weapon.
