Quick note on Ebola in Africa: Updated

Three thousand American Military (probably engineers) are beginning to build dozens of hospitals in Africa to hold Ebola patients.  (No questions are being asked about why those nations didn’t build those hospitals with the aid money given for that purpose years ago.)  However the Australians aren’t coming…

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the Australian Health and Defense Departments had both advised that Australia could not safely evacuate Australian health workers back home, telling reporters, “The Australian government is not about to risk the health of Australian workers in the absence of credible evacuation plans that could bring our people back to Australia.”

The Aussies are right.  This is not the job our soldiers signed up for.  Without a working Ebola vaccine we as a nation and that idiot in the White House Red Shed have no right to expose our troops to this kind of grave risk.

That’s my opinion.

Update: Ebola in the USA

Details about first U.S. Ebola patient a mystery

Little is known about the patient, including his name, age, and nationality. Officials say he lived and worked in Liberia, where he likely caught the disease from one of the thousands infected in that country, but showed no symptoms when he flew back to the U.S. Sept. 19. As a result, no one who traveled with him on that flight is at risk of Ebola.

It is not clear why he traveled to Dallas, where he has been in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since Sunday. Federal officials told the Dallas Morning News he was visiting family members, while city officials told the paper that he had made a permanent move.

Hospital officials also told the News that they were reviewing an initial decision to send the man home with antibiotics this past Friday after he turned up at the hospital feeling unwell. He was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance two days later and was immediately placed in isolation. Blood tests by Texas health officials and the CDC separately confirmed his Ebola diagnosis on Tuesday.

Until the last infected patient in Africa is dead or recovers, anyone who wants to travel to West Africa should only do so with the understanding that they will go into quarantine for three weeks upon their return.

    I would whole-heartedly agree. I’m guessing Australia’s fifth column has not yet attained the level ours has. Strange, given that the administration almost always defers to the UN, now even on matters domestic. My thoughts are that this is part (ACA being another component, remember Bill Ayers saying 25 million “whites” had to die?) of the regimes ethnic cleansing program, aimed at particular segments of society. Ebola is a tool in the progressive monkey-wrenching kit. Flying exposed doctors back to the US, as well as exposing the hated military and their offspring to the deadly disease, goes a long way in furthering these goals. Plus, an outbreak domestically would necessitate a massive BIG GOVERNMENT operation effectively putting an agent in every and any space…”for the common good, of course”. Never let a crisis go to waste, say’s the little brother of Zeke “don’t call me Mengele” Emanuel.

    Of course, this is all crazy talk, and the rant of a loon, our elected officials ARE operating in our best interest. Sleep tight.

  2. When I go to sleep at night I ask myself, “Would it be better or worse if the military revolt against the regime before the people rise up?”.

    Still waiting for the drummer on the green. HURRY! I’m not getting any younger!

      Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who is active duty military, so I can ask about morale. I suspect, that it is extremely low certain units. Probably not too bad in the skate jobs. Same as it ever was. I did see a blog posting a while back about insanity on an amphibious assault ship. Apparently their was a series of unscheduled change-of-commands on this unit. When I saw an image of the “skipper” and read some accounts of what life was like under her command, I understood.
