Foresight of a viral strain - next year

Viral strain that will strike next year, a foresight of it this year is a long shot, and spending billions of money on a gamble ,and playing with lives is pretty stupid for a system that dwells on evidence based medicine.

How come we who ask questions of simple things fail in this matter.

Let us pick up a flu shot of this year, how could scientist know which strain are folks going to get this winter by studying animals and birds across the world and take up three?California, Perth, Brisbane are the strains selected for the present year.

Now that we know how we can be fooled by the call for a swine flu pandemic, the trust in WHO, FDA, CDC and other alphabetical arrangements are dwindling.
