Anyone else remember Obama saying something not too long ago about sending troops to W. Africa to help combat the disease?
Armed troops......against a virus?
Sounds like a legit reason alright.
I'm not saying that this Ebola outbreak was somehow planned, it just seems very convenient that all of a sudden the US has an excuse like Ebola to shove a foot (or a military boot) in the door in these countries.
Sending troops on the ground against ISIL would just give those militants more street-cred. It's easy enough to pop them off with air-strikes even if that does mean some collateral damage. But it avoids the risk of having soldiers being hijacked and paraded before cameras.
The troops go into Africa to build medical treatment centers and train up staff.
Yeah, somethings going on. We're being herded in the direction they want us to go.
Troops in West Africa to control Ebola, but no "boots on the ground" to control ISIL.
If the CDC prediction of 1.4 million dead in West Africa by January 2015 is right, are they going to use our troops to quell the ensuing chaos there? Will we be "forced" to take over their governments to restore order?
I'd like to know how they plan to use us.
So long as an individual's temperature does not exceed 101.5 degrees and there are no visible symptoms of Ebola, health authorities say it should be assumed the person is not infectious.
Yet the largest study of the current outbreak found that in nearly 13% of "confirmed and probable" cases in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and elsewhere, those infected did not have fevers.
The study, sponsored by the World Health Organization and published online late last month by the New England Journal of Medicine, analyzed data on 3,343 confirmed and 667 probable cases of Ebola.
The US government and pharmaceutical corporations have been conducting Ebola tests on humans. It appears that the test consists of giving an Ebola vaccine and then exposing the unaware person to Ebola, apparently an engineered version for bio-warfare. Whatever the tests are, it is clear that Boyle and Broderick in their articles below are correct that experimentation with Ebola by the US government is underway.
