"They were treated and they have fully recovered," said Youssef Mandakar, deputy head of Kuwait's public health department. He said the soldiers had shown "mild symptoms" of the disease upon their arrival at an Air Force base.

Kuwaiti authorities confirmed that the soldiers came from the United States, but would not say where they had gone, adding that the troops had no contact with the local population

Swine flu in the military. To be honest I am astonished that this news is even in the MSM. But that brings to question; what other diseases are are bravest and finest troops being exposed to in the ME. Are our troops perhaps bringing home to their families exotic strains or bugs not commonly found in the US? Will there be those that experience an new type of "Gulf War Syndrome"?

Keep in mind people in the US military have always available quality medical attention at no charge.

For most people, particularly in poorer countries, any form of medical attention is a luxury.

What we know about this flu or any medical concern, comes from confirmed cases. So we don't even know if this is an isolated event or indicative the thing is far more widespread than is thought.

Probably months before we have a clear picture. Meantime many will die with no diagnosis, treatment, or reporting.
