    I wonder if you'd change your tune once it came to our shores and had mutated into a raging pandemic?

    Perhaps not until it affected you or a family member?

    There is no cure yet. Some promising results but not a sure thing yet.

    Yet another fund it now an develop a "detailed" plan later affair. It seems to me that the last thing one should do to "help contain" an infectious (incurable?) disease is to increase the number of folks briefly visiting the region. What, exactly, is the national defense/security mission other than to act as a local police force?

    the government is turning to DOD because the NGOs that agencies typically work with on the ground have fled.

    Terrible analogy, actually, lemme get up my list of fallacies, I'm pretty sure bad analogies is one of the informal logical fallacies.
    So you are really saying a virus does not mutate? Really?

    The rates at which (historically) ebola and AIDS mutate are so polar that Ebola would never mutate even .01 times as fast as AIDS.

    Not to mention the way both viruses work are completely different and one virus is clearly as shown through history spread much more easily.

    AIDS is still in the USA, Ebola is not, what does that tell you about the two?

    Stop comparing apples and oranges.

    No - and for that very reason they are separate government departments/agencies.

    You and I know that, Fox seems to have missed it.

    But the decision comes as the military is already engaged in counter-terrorism operations in Africa, and as the president expands the campaign in the Middle East against the Islamic State.
    From article.
