KANDAHAR, Afghanistan | U.S. military officials sent a medical team to a remote outpost in southern Afghanistan this week to take blood samples from members of an Army unit after a soldier in the unit died from an Ebola-like virus...
The news comes as the Pentagon disclosed that it has sent 150,000 doses of vaccine for the H1N1 swine flu virus to Qatar for distribution to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan - half of what U.S. Central Command has requested. More than a half dozen Afghans have died of the disease, which apparently was transmitted to the country by foreigners.

Please read what the text clearly states. ONE single soldier has died from it. Many more Afghans have died from it, but you see only the solitary US soldier as a loss worthy of concern. And it's even postulated there that the invaders - I mean foreigners (those being the soldiers, btw) - brought the disease along with them. No pity for those damned locals though, filthy beasts that they are. Just like Africa it is! Disgusting, isn't it? Nasty, filthy heathens....
Please, please, please THINK before you post. THINK about what you're saying. I truly hope you all aren't as misguided in heart and mind as you seem to be from the words you wrote. If you are though, God help us all.
At least 40 al-Qaeda fanatics died horribly after being struck down with the disease that devastated Europe in the Middle Ages. null The killer bug, also known as the plague, swept through insurgents training at a forest camp in Algeria, North Africa. It came to light when security forces found a body by a roadside. The victim was a terrorist in AQLIM (al-Qaeda in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb), the largest and most powerful al-Qaeda group outside the Middle East. It trains Muslim fighters to kill British and US troops. Now al-Qaeda chiefs fear the plague has been passed to other terror cells - or Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. Read more: www.thesun.co.uk...
