NY Times Op Ed... Ebola..

This one is old news. It's already known that the number of cases will exponentially increase over the next month. The question is whether it can be contained and that relates to the NYT article. If we as countries with money and effective medical care do not assist immediately, it's going to get really bad for that area of Africa. As for going airborne, there's always a chance and this is why again all possible resources are needed to stamp this out quickly. The attitude of leaving Africans to fend for themselves is not only selfish and un-American, it will only make the situation much worse and then it's only a matter of time before big cities are impacted and it spreads.

Be an American.  Go there.  YOU.   Its not like a military operation where you arent permitted.  You can sign up with an NGO and be there within a month.  


Put up.  Go.   Not because I want you to, but because you want "us" to.

I do not believe it's a job for the US military. I don't have a problem if we provide supplies, and people voluteer to go, but like the NY Times says, maybe the UN should take the lead. We are not the only country in the UN. Our military does more than enough policing around the world, they don't need to get into this mess too. Someone from the US needs to stand up at the UN, point fingers, and say this.

Who, in this administration, do you expect to do this?

Canada just enacted a travel ban from Yukkyland.

 

Actually it's not a "travel ban" per se. They have suspending issuing Visa's however will decide case by case. Also there is no ban of Canadians or other nationalities, e.g. Brits, etc. from traveling to or from the affected countries in Africa. A travel ban to me is NOBODY goes in or out of the country regardless of citizenship.
