    Hopefully some lives will be saved, a vaccine will be developed, and we'll be able to keep a lid on this disease without sacrificing our military unnecessarily. Imagine living in Liberia and hearing the words, "You have ebola." It's a death sentence, and one in which you will not be able to see your loved ones or anything else that matters in this life. Maybe we can do some good.

    One minute BO is complaining how the Military is used.....and the next he is all for using Military troops for the Humanitarian reasons. 3000 troops here to go and build a hospital. How about those Humanitarians in Africa and the surrounding countries go and build a hospital.

    Didn't the UN say this was already out of control?

    Send Moochelle to lead the Fight against Ebola!


    ......and obama. For that matter, let's just send all democrats over there.


    We should force each Liberal to take into their home

    2 illegals and two Ebola patients to care for...

    That will shut them the F up


    This is one case where the Commander-In-Chief needs to be on site first )


    Instead of using the N word call them an "obama"...it's worse


    After reading this I had to play the Rolling Stones Let it Bleed album song MONKEY MAN


    This is a good way to get rid of blacks.

    Let's see. We'll send 3000 troops to West Africa and hope they don't get sick and die. We'll send 300 to Iraq and hope they don't get shot and die. I thought the purpose of the military is to kill people and break things. Who do we want to kill and what do we want to break in West Africa?

    I would be interested to see exactly how and what they are going to be doing - but according to the link that was provided:

    Administration officials said that the U.S. would help to provide medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. The Defense Department has asked Congress for nearly $500 million in existing funds to be put toward the effort. The money would otherwise be used to support overseas contingency operations, such as the drawdown of troops in Afghanistan.
    I am hoping that these soldiers wear protective apparel and are decontaminated daily - I like others do not understand why soldiers are being used in this capacity. Why aren't we sending medical professionals, the CDC and private sector builders to get this stuff done? If we need to isolate the sick and keep them detained - I can see the military being used.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The military is the only part of the government that is sufficiently efficient.

    Heya Ockham. Yeah.....why aren't those CDC guys going. Also I am sure BO didn't account for any of the money. Just the intention.

    Hey, now, everyone knows there is no "white racism" in this country! The only racism in this country is AA, the secret race war Jews suppress in the media and blacks not being held responsible for poverty.


    Hah. I've actually seen those claims here.
