What is stopping a terrorist organization(s) from going to Africa, getting infected with E Bola, and going to the southern border and crossing along with everyone else to create a massive infection and pandemic?

Nothing, really.

So does this mean that the terrorism threat is over-blown by the government and media?

Or is it just a matter of time. . . . . . ?

Just throwing out some Friday doom for you all to ponder. . .

I'll be hiding under my desk for the next few weeks!

You're not doing the World any favors giving them ideas lol

But good thinking. Now every time I see a terrorist I'm going to wonder if he's an ATS member too and recently traveled to Africa.

Well I'd say if we find a dead Canadian named JBAIDS stuffed in a water tower, Doom porn on! Otherwise, I'd say we're good.

Considered this back a decade ago beezzer. It feels like they may not know how to do it properly w/o infecting themselves... Reiterating "feels like"

I understand exactly where you are comming from on this one.
I can tell you about several "game-over" tactics that could be used if someone were so inclined. Of couse, I will not discuss them, even in private, but each could be easily done as things are being left wide open.
This is also why I am sceptical about our counter terrorism policies.

Based on the readings I've done, I don't think Ebola is quite as communicable as most make it out to be. Yes, it can be transmitted by body fluids, however most casual contact will not necessarily cause it to promulgate. I imagine it could contained easier in the US than in these African countries.

However, from a terror perspective, yes, I believe it would be horrifying. Of course it's not the terrorists that would be responsible for spreading the terror. It would be the media. Just look at the news now. All the reporters are convinced this is the end of the world and we're all going to die, based on the questions they're asking.

I have seen reports of health care workers coming down with ebola. This scares me. Health care workers would take precautions against contracting the virus according to what they knew about the mode of transmission of the virus. I see this a evidence that the virus is airborne now.

Ebola airborne?


You'll notice if you read virtually any mainstream article on the topic that they make a point of insisting that Ebola is only transferred by physical contact with bodily fluids. This is not true, at all. A study conducted in 2012 showed that Ebola was able to travel between pigs and monkeys that were in separate cages and were never placed in direct contact. Though the method of transmission in the study was not officially determined, one of the scientists involved, Dr. Gary Kobinger, from the National Microbiology Laboratory at the Public Health Agency of Canada, told BBC News that he believed that the infection was spread through large droplets that were suspended in the air.

They would probably die in like 2 weeks. That's not really much time, especially considering that they're going to have to get to Western Africa, make it through airports, and then get processed at the southern border. They'd probably die by the time they reach the border. Either that, or they'd die during processing. If that were to occur, i think the USA would be well prepared to settle things...hopefully.

I have been seeing 21 days listed as the time from infection until symptoms develop.

But



. Men who have recovered from the disease can still transmit the virus through their semen for up to 7 weeks after recovery from illness.

www.who.int...

There can be a lot of 'happy endings' in 7 weeks


As for you chaps dragging the plague victims into the castle (so to speak) I think that the potential for causing panic is the greater danger.
Plonk an infected patient into a crowded space and more will succumb to stampede than infection.

It does seem like a global 'perfect storm' is gathering.

2 days - 2 weeks.

but they are telling everyone that they can be stopped at the airports.

the airport people are on the front lines, does anyone realize what that means?!

yup, screwed! if they want to just fly in with a valid passport. no need to go through mexico.

they just need to get infected in sierra leone/liberia, get smuggled out to another country to fly into the east coast.

they could be on a plane within 3 days of infection. within the incubation period.

we have an alert here in HK for ebola.

Thanks for all the replies!

While I am confident in the US's abilities to counter any threats, I am also aware of the limitations.

Apologies for no job opportunities, and I will refrain from any further speculation. Would hate to give anyone ideas.

i'm sure their wheels were already turning on this, beez.

they probably thought of all the obvious ways, already.

The reason I don't think they would do it is because everyone would/ could get infected, including their loved ones, friends,etc.

Once a virus spreads , it's almost uncontrollable.

Well, everyone complains about the TSA...

Last night, on Rense Radio, a retired healthcare worker/communicable disease expert, Patricia Doyle, was saying that up to 100,000 young people from the ebola outbreak area in Africa, have crossed our borders at Mexico and are in the US now. If true, that doesn't sound too good...
