The U.S. military is forming a 30-person "quick strike team" equipped to provide direct treatment to Ebola patients inside the United States, a Defense Department official told CNN's Barbara Starr on Sunday. The team -- made up of doctors, nurses and specialized trainers -- will be under orders to deploy within 72 hours at any time over the next month, the official said.

It seems that the Military is getting VERY involved with the fight against Ebola. And even stranger, we the public, are welcoming it!

Ebola is VERY serious, but I'm not sure how comfortable I am with our public growing increasingly upset with a lack of military response.

Soon, we will be begging them to deploy to hospitals as "security".

I'm waiting for the EBOLA DRONES to start flying over US airspace.

ebola drones

It's so safe we need drones to stay away from the infected in Africa but they keep flying people into the states from infected countries.

72 hours?
3 days to "react" to a lethal virus?
Only took em 38 years to come up with it too.
Quick reaction my ass.

US always needs to be involved with these things :I
Why they're sending 'soldiers' instead specialized doctors?

I cant wait for the Ebola government gun roundup. Where we are finally forced to give up the right to bare arms. Enough hysteria and rioting it will come.


Americans fell into this trap because as a collective we are idiots.

Ask Obama and his advisors.
They also think importing people with ebola into the states is a good idea.
The whole government is made up of children pretending to be politicians.

I disagree... The whole government is full of politicians pretending to be stewards and leaders.

Unfortunately, you are correct.
The ideology of intentional idiocy has reduced our collective IQ to that of a guinea pig.

Let's review:

We have the following federal agencies that SHOULD be far more equipped (AND be structured with the proper intent, allegedly) to respond to DOMESTIC outbreaks of a disease...

1. Department of Health and Human Services
2. CDC
3. Department of Homeland Security

and NONE of those are creating a rapid-response SUPPORT team for a domestic outbreak. Nope, instead, the DOD is. The military that should NOT take ANY action on domestic soil.

Peachy-effing-keen.

I thought civilian authorities would be able to handle ebola hitting the US. I no longer believe that.The military has a form of organization and unique capabilities that might make it superior to civilian authorities in handling the response. I think it should at least be open for debate and feel like we're should discuss the pros and cons.

I'll start with the pros. It's ATS so I'm sure some will pipe up with various legitimate and imaginary cons.
There is no saying "hell no i quit"I the military. In a truly nightmare scenario desertion could be an issue, but we're far from that.
The military has an NBC Corps whose skills and equipment are perfectly suited for decontamination of facilities, vehicles, and equipment.
Military medical personnel due to there requirements to maintain proficiency in protecting themselves from an NBC attack and perform their job I full MOPP4, along with being in generally better physical condition than their civilian counterparts are probably better suited for treating and caring for patients for longer periods of time while in BL 4 PPE.
There is ask accountability and supervision level inn military chains of command you don't have in a civilian hospital.

What is this team supposed to react to?

Ebola is hard to get. Remember hearing that?

I would definitely recommend people actually read the link and do a little more digging into the unit that is on standby.
