I am just asking the question. I am not saying I support shooting it down.
I'm not saying you did, I was actually more shocked by the military ship idea.
I do not believe we should bring infected people to the US.
Why not? If they are quarantined there's no problem.
I think you are letting your fear cloud your judgment. Look at it this way:
If Ebola does spread out, and this become a serious World health problem, you will in the future be glad that your government decided to bring people
sick indoors so that they could study and combat the virus ahead of the spread.
Ignoring the problem isn't going to make it go away.
US has right to deny access to anyone including American citizens especially when sick with a pandemic level disease.
This worries me.
Everyday I read around ATS how much people are distrustful and disgusted by their government, but as soon as you are afraid of something, you crawl
under it's skirts and say "daddy, keep the bad bugs away", and the policies that are daily condemned around here are now very useful. Now you want

I do not wish anyting bad for these people (...)
No, you just want them away from you. As far as possible.
but they took a risk going there and there is no reason the rest of us should be put at risk because of their personal choice to endanger
These people risked their lives, and everything that attitude implies, to help people who they don't even know, and people who didn't know them!
They went into a sh#-hole to dig out people that were dying and give peace to those who had no more salvation. And you have the audacity of saying
that? These people are freaking heroes. The true kind! The kind of heroes who don't care about themselves but others, and the others they are saving

The very least we can do is to bring them HOME!
I don't know what more to say without being disrespectful, to be honest.
