In Reply:Germs of War is not intended to and does not denigrate Pakistani physicians in any way. Every ethnic and religious group has individuals in it that can be manipulated by forces of evil, and this book pinpoints one such fictional scenario. Given recent events in Afghanistan and Pakistan, however, I believe that my book presents a possible scenario for biological armageddon.
