Ebola epidemic: serious global threat

Obama: Ebola outbreak a threat to global security

By JIM KUHNHENN | Sep 16th 2014

ATLANTA (AP) – Calling the Ebola outbreak in West Africa a potential threat to global security, President Barack Obama is ordering 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the stricken region amid worries that both the financial and human cost of the outbreak is spiraling out of control.

Obama also called on other countries to quickly supply more helpers, supplies and money.

“If the outbreak is not stopped now, we could be looking at hundreds of thousands of people affected, with profound economic, political and security implications for all of us,” Obama said Tuesday after briefings at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“It’s a potential threat to global security if these countries break down,” Obama saietd, speaking of the hardest-hit countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. At least 2,400 people have died, with Liberia bearing the brunt.

It’s like I said earlier here.

So basically everything he said there could also apply to the ‘black-flag’ death plague raging across the Mid East, and soon to be exported to a country near you.

But no, he doesn’t seem to use that same language or sense of urgency about that epidemic. Then, on terrorism, the words are couched in politically correct terms.

Notice how the same basic idea applies though. We must “contain it”, must get many other countries involved, must have joint cooperation. Can you say coalition? But on Ebola it’s all hands on deck. Now its a billion-dollar problem, upgraded from the earlier 500 million one.

    Good article, thanks. Interesting. I understood from questions at the CDC that sweat could spread it. (when they were pressed they said it could) So that called into question lots of things from taxis and bus seats etc.Seemed to me that the more questions people asked them, the more questions it raised. But the CDC wasn’t doing it they were calming people down saying don’t worry.

    Look for our boy to screw this one up too. Now we’ll have 3,000 of our finest over there. I worry about their safety, and the possibility of them bringing it back home.

    Ebola can’t be fixed over there. People still defecate in the streets. Little personal hygiene is practiced. They are throwing corpses in the streets at a point when the virus is most contagious. Short of nuking those countries it will be impossible to stop.

    Airports and shipping ports need to be closed to all traffic. Harsh action needs to be taken to nip this in the bud. We all know that won’t happen under our present administration. It might as well be the plague.

    I’m not very PC correct on this issue Bull. Africa has been around how many thousands of years and their still a dirt poor, third world country. If they stopped being tribal and started developing their country better, this shit wouldn’t happen and be a plight on the rest of the world.

    My guess is the only reason Barry gives a rats ass and is helping is due to the country being almost completely made up of black folks and the muzzie religion. As the perfect analogy you made about ISIS; where is Barry on helping all the Christians being butchered in the ME?? No where to be seen….
