    It only spread to the heterosexual population because we refused to quarantine.

    My point through out this thread is that if anyone is really giving a ****, we should be addressing those folks in the third world countries, rather than pretending this is all something new and is just now a threat because an American contracted it. Did you miss that point?

    Actually, that would be Clinton's fault. Nixon signed into EO an absolute ban on bio weapons, It stood until Clinton ended it. Obama could reinstate the ban but hasn't.

    And medical advancements have more than kept up with the advancements in transportation. As evidenced by the SARS scare and the H1N1 flu scare.

    No, but you missed the point. The initial post stated quite clearly that along with the dead American officials were looking at 30,000 potentially infected. You then derp your way into the thread to bleat about how one dead American isn't worth the "drama". You said something stupid in an attempt to make some inane point that your never quite made.

    Where have you been. We have been sending help and dealing with this in Africa for decades now. The CDC is very involved in all past Ebola outbreaks. It's getting major press attention right now because this outbreak isn't burning out as the others have, it's spreading.

    Did we cure SARS ? H1N1 ?

    No we didnt, its not about " medical advancements " its about isolating the carriers and proper quarantine procedures.

    Why we've given wings to Ebola is beyond me.

    Why we've even taken the risk to load up two people infected with the virus on a G3 is a mystery.

    It makes zero sense.

    Don't know much about the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic do you. Also don't seem to have a clue that the CDC has been working to crack Ebola for decades now with no result. WE still do not know the source for sure. We THINK it may be the monkeys, but we haven't yet been able to identify the original vector.

    Sorry but since Ebola is in third world countries and CDC is more of a reporting and investigating organization, it solves very little. I'm discussing the big pharma type solutions that won't happen unless and until first world countries are dealing with Ebola. That is what SHOULD be happening regardless of the negative cost/benefit to the pharma.
