The Pentagon said Tuesday that the U.S. military will be exposed to Ebola when they go to Liberia despite previous assurances to the contrary. Also on Tuesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that it’s “unavoidable” Ebola will spread throughout Europe. At the same time Obama is insisting we help Africans, he has done NOTHING to protect Americans from the disease.
Mr. Obama is eager to help his friends in Africa but Americans have to take a back seat.
He said he will need a billion dollars and he will send 3,000 special force military to Liberia to “fight” the “war” against “Ebola.”
The Kurds in Iraq and Syria who are about to be massacred don’t merit his attention.
In an address from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention headquarters in Atlanta, Obama said that the U.S. is willing to take the lead on international efforts to combat the virus. Ebola “is a global threat, and it demands a truly global response,” Obama said.
Barack Obama has been reforming the military into an organization that operates like a social service organization. He won’t send them to fight terrorists who want to kill us and who are about to annihilate tens of thousands of people in the Middle East but he will send them into harm’s way in Liberia.
Mr. Obama said that we are at war with Ebola. He won’t go to war with ISIS or al Qaeda but he will go to war with Ebola.
His first announcement about this war against Ebola began by his demanding $750 million. His next announcement was that we had to help because it’s a “threat to global security” and he was sending 3,000 of our soldiers – special forces – to supervise the building of 17 treatment centers in Liberia.
“This is an epidemic that is not just a threat to regional security. It’s a potential threat to global security, if these countries break down, if their economies break down, if people panic,” he said. “That has profound effects on all of us…”
We were given the impression that the military would not have direct contact with Ebola patients, which wasn’t believable and now we know it is definitely not believable.
The Pentagon announced today that the military personnel will be exposed to Ebola.
What are we going to do if 3,000 military catch it? Send them to those wonderful VA hospitals?
Mr. Obama said we must help and as always, he is very generous with other peoples’ lives and other peoples’ money.
He was generous with the services of the local police in Dallas. His minions sent them in to clean up Thomas Duncan’s apartment. They put law enforcement in charge of clean up because they are social workers too.
According to a senior military official, Dempsey said during a recent meeting, “The Department of Defense’s number one priority is combating Ebola.”
The Defense Department? Really?
A Defense Department source told Fox News that alarms had been raised about the decision.
“We don’t need to be taking planners away from the CT [counterterrorism] mission, and that is what is going on,” the Defense Department source said.
While the disease was “spiraling out of control” in West Africa, Obama said the chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States are “extremely low” and will stay that way if the United States acts.
Right after, we had our first Ebola patient.
You can’t believe a thing these people say.
Today we were also told that Ebola will spread across Europe because it’s “quite unavoidable”. The World Health Organization sent out the warning in response to a Spanish nurse coming down with the virus.
WHO European director Zsuzsanna Jakab said more cases will spread in Europe but the continent should be well prepared to control the disease.
The continent will not be prepared – that’s nonsense.
Meanwhile, Obama has done nothing to protect Americans. He is putting our soldiers in harm’s way where they can contract the disease and bring it back to the States.
He won’t cut travel from West Africa which would limit the risk because as Dr. Friedan absurdly said, it won’t provide “zero risk” and it would curtail the ability of medical professionals from getting in to West Africa.
They can get 3,000 soldiers in but they can’t get medical personnel into West Africa if we limit travel?
The worst part is Obama will not stop illegal immigration. Illegals are pouring across our borders and jumping visas. What has Obama done about it? He’s given a two-year asylum to people here who come from countries with Ebola. He will undoubtedly do the same for any who come here now.
From October 2001 to December 2008, we lost 630 U.S. soldiers. In 2008 Obama implemented his Counterinsurgent strategy on “winning hearts and minds” over winning the war. He changed the rules of engagement – no firing until fired upon and no firing if civilians can be hurt.
Over the next five years, the U.S. death toll nearly tripled.
Seventy-three percent of all U.S. deaths in Afghanistan have taken place since 2009. In the first seven plus years of war in Afghanistan, 2,638 U.S. soldiers were wounded in action. In the next forty-five months (2009 – 2012) an additional 15,036 suffered the same fate. (statistics via Allen B West)
Mr. Obama has no problem sending our soldiers to their deaths, they simply have to do it under his conditions. He has no problem with illegal immigration because they are future Democrats and if Ebola patients or sick children with respiratory ailments get through the border, so be it, he’s got their back. He’s very committed to his agenda.
No one is saying we should not help the suffering people in Africa and attempt to stop the spread of the disease but the overblown rhetoric about it being a war is a transparent effort to manipulate Americans. He doesn’t give a hoot that he’s putting us all in harm’s way.
