Here in Portugal they're going to X-ray or scan every envelope, i really don't know how the hell they'll find any antrax or other spores this way. Maybe i got it all wrong but this idea is getting me crazy. What ? Spores in plumb protection or something ?

According to USPS.gov, the postal service will be spending the money to install and use irradiation devices. This means several things:

1. They haven't done it yet;
2. They haven't secured funding for it yet;
3. Money for the project must be approved by the gov;
4. Extra processing steps will interfere with the postal workflow, suggesting that not all mail pieces can or will be treated -- businesses will have a shit fit;
5. Pharmaceutical and bio lobbies will have a fit;
6. Private global couriers i.e. UPS, FedEx, and so on are not mandated to set up these devices.

Also, USPS is training its people to ID suspicious packages. So chances are, there will be screeners who catch certain parcels and treat them, rather than treating every single letter.

Let's be totally realistic here people. This is going to take a LONG time, considering the US gov has oversight on the USPS. Outside of war, nothing happens in the gov in a timely manner.
