American soldiers are sworn to defend the US and the Constitution. They aren’t supposed to be sent into the middle of a dangerous plague area because we have an African president, who cares more about the lives of Africans than Americans.
For anyone, who missed it, Obama announced that he is going to send 3,000 US soldiers to the nations hardest hit by ebola. One news article reports “US President Barack Obama will try to “turn the tide” on the Ebola epidemic Tuesday by ordering 3,000 US military personnel to west Africa to curtail its spread as China also dispatched more experts to the region.”
“The White House said Obama will travel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta — where US Ebola victims were treated — to make the announcement, meant to spur a global effort to tackle the outbreak that has already killed 2,400 people.”
“It comes as alarm grows that the worst-ever Ebola epidemic which spread through Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea before reaching Nigeria, is out of control. A separate strain of the disease has appeared in the Democratic Republic of Congo.”
There is pretty much nothing that can be done for these ebola victims. The only effective drug Z-MAPP takes weeks to make a single dose. The best course of action at this point is to set up road blocks and to shoot anyone, who tries to cross a roadblock. Needless to say, our soldiers won’t have the authority to shoot ebola victims while they’re a safe distance away. Instead, the ebola victims will likely be able to walk right up and throw up on our soldiers since Obama will be dictating what can and can’t be done.
Some news stories are saying that our soldiers will be setting up “hospitals.” Who’s going to be manning these hospitals? Who’s going to be changing the bed pans for the ebola victims? What happens when the hospital becomes so saturated with the ebola virus that walking around the hospital becomes as dangerous as walking around Chernobyl after the nuclear meltdown?
The best course of action right now would be to set up roadblocks and to stop all travel. African soldiers could do this, probably better than US soldiers since they would likely have the authority to shoot anyone, who doesn’t obey the quarantine. The West could help out with shipments of rubber gloves, chlorine and food, but sending our soldiers or doctors into the hot zone only puts our people at risk of getting ebola. Ebola is an African problem, and it will stay an African problem if we take some simple precautions and stop all travel from west Africa.
Obama is a dim-witted fool, who’s too lazy to think things through. Either that, or he deliberately wants hundreds of Americans to die from ebola with the added risk of these soldiers bringing back ebola to Army bases all over the US.
We need to impeach Obama for the IRS scandal. We need to impeach him for Fast and Furious. We need to impeach him for Benghazi. We need to impeach him for not being a natural born US citizen, and we need to impeach him for misusing the US military and sending US soldiers to certain death to fight a plague in Africa, which could be contained just by shutting down passenger flights from Africa.
The Republican leadership failed to obey the US Constitution and impeach Obama for all those earlier scandals, and now the unqualified criminal in the White House is about to get US soldiers killed sending them into the middle of a plague zone, with no clear mission and with no drugs to treat the plague or to treat our soldiers if they catch ebola.
