    Obama to send 3,000 troops to Ebola danger zone

    What happens when they contract the disease, which is inevitable, and then bring it home?

    ''This effort ... will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces,' according to the White House Pentagon official says military will 'be the lead dog, and that will make a lot of people nervous. ... No one wants U.S. personnel enforcing someone else's martial law if things go south and the entire region is at risk'

    They'll have to be quarantened for an appropriate period, before they come home.

    With a U.S. general leading the effort from Liberia's capital of Monrovia, American military personnel in the region could increase by 3,000, administration officials say. Working through the Defense Department, the United States will plan and construct treatment centers that could house up to 1,700 beds.

    They're building a hospital in the capital city, not enforcing martial law.

    Firstly. The government will motivate the presence of American military bases in Africa as a "Safety guarant" against the new outbreak.
    Secondly. Hope it will not be something like this

    "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help." Have you heard that refrain in the past? I hope this wasn't a FEMA plan.

    They will likely be getting the experimental vaccine before they go.

    My favorites:

    obama will take any risk with our brave military men . . . to help "his people"....

    Bammy has to protect the land of his forefathers!

    The only thing that comes from Africa that is any good are Diamonds. All the troops should be Black to help their people.

    When did our military become doctors and scientists? This is a complete setup for a major scandal
