    U.S. to send troops to help fight Ebola in West Africa

    The United States and Britain are sending troops and equipment to West Africa to help curb the spread of Ebola, officials said Monday, as the World Health Organization warned that the outbreak is outstripping the capacity to respond in one of the worst-hit countries.

    Time to liberate the $#@! outta some disease-carrying brown people!

    If you thought a virus infection was worse than a military infection, we got news for you!

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    So can we expect our military servicemen to be contracting this disease? I hope they are all screened before they are allowed back in the country. I know Ebola has a 3 week incubation period, but how long does it take a for us to tell that someone has been infected if we are doing blood tests and such?

    Obama To Send 3,000 Troops To Oppose Ebola

    Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

    The US military is used to one-sided wars where it is far more dangerous to be a civilian than a soldier. But “Operation Contagious Death,” or whatever they will call it, could lead to soldiers resisting orders. Soldiers who do so can be caged or killed, but only if the other soldiers agree. This Ebola deployment could be a fateful decision for the empire. BTW. soldiers should be free to leave their jobs like the rest of us. But given military slavery, they are not.

    WTF?

    Purposely send them to an area where they could be exposed to the virus, then presumably bring them back to the US?

    This needs to stay in Africa. The doctor who got it was flown into an airport in Maine a half hour after I dropped my kids and mom off there. I was livid to say the least. It's not worth the risk, even if it's very slight.

    I missed this thread! Commented on it here.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
    --Albert J. Nock

    Are you starting to connect the dots?

    Start researching AfriCOM agenda.
    Start researching Eugenics agenda.
    Start researching Agenda 21.

    Yes, some can be expected to contract it.

    It takes 3 weeks to give a 100% all clear. ALL the Peace Corp volunteers that got pulled out of there are in 21 day isolation. Presumably the same will happen with the military.

    Obama will lay out is strategy on fighting Ebola at 2:30pm EST on C-SPAN3. If you don't get that, you can watch it online at c-span.org.

    This one actually bothers me a lot. If there was any way to spread Ebola to the US for real, this would be it.

These doctors sleep somewhere, they interact with the local population.. Even though they try to minimize contact with other humans, people are people and contact is made from time to time. If ebola was truly airborne at this time we would see a much faster spread. If that happens, we well all $#@! our pants, metaphorically speaking.

    @Gunny, I don't think the military poses a great risk of bringing back ebola, the military is probably the most procedural entity, mistakes are made but I'd say SOP is much better than the improvisation that they do to help these people in the bush. I'm pretty sure the military isn't stupid enough to NOT have some sort of method to test people or to make sure they don't carry the disease back. At least, I'm willing to believe that there are some bio-warfare specialists that have the expertise to help with this. If not, we're $#@!ed, again metaphorically speaking since the experience won't be pleasing.
