WHO allows stockpiling of smallpox for 3 more years

delaying discussion for another three years. 
Though it still affirms the need for live sample destruction.

“The retention of the existing stocks of smallpox virus 

Through current technology, smallpox vaccines can be developed from the known genome. 
Live viruses are simply no longer needed.
The claimed need to protect against smallpox appears to be a ruse 
for the development of its use as a bioweapon. 
Given the history of its use in Native American genocide, 
the United States should be specifically banned from possessing the live virus. 
But, this is the same country that's radiating with impunity the Middle East with depleted uranium.

“By destroying the last stocks, 
the world would be drawing a clear legal distinction: 
anyone in possession of the virus after that date 
would be guilty of a crime against humanity.”
- Ben Macintyre *A pox on the keepers of a killer virus*
