8 Soldiers Die From Ebola – So, Why Is Obama Sending In US Troops?
With Barack Obama preparing to send thousands of soldiers to Western Africa in an attempt to fight off the Ebola disease at its source, we learn in this brand new story excerpted from this linked Liberian Daily Observer story that AT LEAST 8 soldiers have succumbed to the deadly disease.
Will US soldiers soon fall victim to the same fate? At 30 seconds into the 1st video below, DOD news gives us an update on these soldiers now in Africa while the 2nd video below from TheAlexJonesChannel tells us more about what Alex calls ‘created destabilization’ brought on by Ebola. Could Ebola REALLY lead to the collapse of America?
At least eight soldiers, among them two commissioned officers and two medical staff, have reportedly lost their lives to the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD), the Daily Observer has reliably learnt.
The deceased, according to our source, contracted Ebola recently at the Edward Binyan Kesseley (EBK) Barracks when a lady unsuspected of carrying the disease, visited one of the victims
This latest setback among the rank and file of the already sparse number of soldiers has reportedly created panic among them, to the extent that some of them have begun to desert the various barracks across the country.
Based on this information, the Daily Observer yesterday contacted Defense Assistant Minister for Public Affairs, David K. Dahn, who neither confirmed nor denied the report.
He, however, told this newspaper via mobile phone, “The whole West Africa is being threatened by Ebola, of which the AFL is no exception, because they are among other Liberians being afflicted by the EVD.”

I've maintained that one of the more dangerous possibilities from mutation is the ability to transmit before symptoms become readily apparent.
I agree this looks and sounds like confirmation bias.
I'd be right there with you on this, and when/if this is brought under control, I will eat appropriate crow.
With how dangerous this virus is, it is completely discounting possibilities like this that will give to the window it needs to take us out.

I was born just before men walked on the moon and have seen my fair share of things in this life, but I am nowhere near done.
My nurse relative indicated that there are more people being watched with symptoms than are being reported.
My personal take is this is referring to the family members that no one has seem or heard from since jiuge Jugghead transported them to where ever it is they actually are.

being in the military they are aware that when they go to battle they may not live. that's their job. they joined the military to put their life on the line to protect our country.
The deputy had been ordered to go inside the unit with officials to get a quarantine order signed on October 1. No one who entered the apartment that day wore protective gear.

Here's how you'll know they're taking it seriously:
EVERY HOSPITAL will have, at the outside of the ER door, a person dressed in full biocontainment gear with a clipboard, stopping everyone from entering unless they're in full heart attack or bleeding out mode and asking questions about symptoms, recent travel, and possible exposures, along with taking temps. Anyone answering in the affirmative to Ebola/flu type symptoms or recent travel will be directed to AN OUTDOOR TENT for further processing, again by people in full blown containment gear.
No 'visitors' of any kind will be allowed inside the hospital except parents with minor children as the patients.
Until they do that, the question about how soon is someone contagious and with what vague symptoms will be the elephant in the waiting room, exposing everyone nearby (and their families, friends and coworkers) with godknowswhat, all of it being managed at first intake by an individual ER clerk with little more education than a high school degree.
Good luck with that.
