Yes. Al Qaeda should definitely be supported too. Also was thinking of the foot and mouth disease, an outbreak occured in the UK in 2001, but more than 4 million cattle was slaughtered. I wonder where you get the year 2000 for Mad Cow, as Wikipedia says the EU banned British beef already in 1996, so 2000 is a bit late for Mad Cow?
