    Scientists are very concerned that it will mutate to an airborne disease, if it hasn't happened already. Then what?

    We have a cure, didn't you know? So even in that case, we're good.

    No, I didn't hear that. They were previously announcing that there was no cure, because it's a virus. I believe I read that they did take blood from the doctors that were flown here for treatment, though, so maybe they found a way to fight it. Good news!

The aims and objectives of the terrorisms in Africa are to stop the flow of freedom/democracy and to destroy the interest of the United States and its Western allied nations. Sending 3000 troops to the region will regardless their mission is likely to be met with resistance by terrorist organizations. Instead, working behind the scenes by offering assistance to organizations already operating in the area seems much more logical.
    That's pretty out there. IMO, better to stick to protecting America....and doing good for the people there which should be clearly displayed to political and religious groups there.

    I found out about it from Jon Stewart's piece on the Ebola Scare, on it, there were news outlets like CNN who were reporting on a "magic cure". One of the people went on to say that the infected person's "fever was down and rash was (decreasing?)"

    This shows how inept Obama actually is....

    Why? to bring the disease home?

    Remember a lot of these screwballs actually believe Ebola is some sort of Voodoo spell.
