So refuse to get sent somewhere all the time just in case there happens to be a problem in the meantime?
If you accept a six month assignment to an otherwise stable country, there is no way you could have seen something like this coming down the pike to even have had the chance to refuse.
Now if your boss comes to you today and asks you to go? Different story.

I think most people are just secretly hoping that this is the big event most people are waiting for. Let's face it, they're hoping this somehow turns into the zombie apocalypse...
The simple truth is there are too may humans, and if we keep on multiplying at the rate we are then we'll kill the Earth and everything on it.
So eventually nature will take action, maybe when we become to many she will create some viruses that can swap and mutate and incubate in the giant test tube of a giant human filled city until one pops out that can kill us all.
Then it will spread and travel and cull the herd until a sustainable number are left.
It's bound to happen sometime - simply we cannot keep on growing and growing and growing and consuming and consuming and consuming without something evetually giving or rather correcting the situation.
So sayeth the great, late Albert Bartlett, and if it's good enough for him then I agree.
