Ebola virus is spreading ‘exponentially’ in Liberia, health chiefs warn, as British and American troops head to Africa to help set up treatment centres
Losing American troops to disease or African Islamic Militants is the same as to IED’s in Afghanistan. Dead is Dead. It isn’t my call whither or not this is an appropriate use of American troops. If it was my decision I think I’d ask for volunteers, not just give an order. Our men make a commitment to risk death or injury to defend the USA, at times US troops have taken the field in the US to help our own people during natural disasters. Sending them to any African country because that country is FUBAR? NFW.
But if George W. Bush had done it?
What about, no, what happened to the Billions of Dollars, Marks, and Pounds sent to that region expressly for the purpose of creating the medical infrastructure so desperately needed today? How about this? For every UK or US trooper sent into harms way we get to hang one corrupt, venal, African politician or bureaucrat? Yeah, bring lots and lots of rope.
