    Right. LOL. Everything will be just fine, until it isn't.

    What vital national interest compels sending 4000 American troops to ebola country.

    Maybe you, Jetbbogie and enig can get together and describe the strategy for defeating ebola which includes sending our troops.

    He would have to be pretty naive to come into physical contact with anyone in Liberia who just collapsed for no reason.

    West Africans should know by now what spreads this deadly disease.


    The Dallas Hospital has closed its ER. I wonder why ?

    That Dallas ER has closed its ER.

    Apparently due to a lack of Emergency workers.

    Now thats interesting.

    Could it be that those that worked their know that this disease is beinhg transmitted allot easier than the CDC is letting on ?

    I had heard they closed their ER, I suspect since the nurse who not test positive,
    said she followed all the safety protocols, those might need to be revisited.
    The other thing would be just to thoroughly clear EVERYTHING.
    I can just imagine the lawsuit, if someone went to that ER for a broken arm,
    and picked up EBOLA!

    A few of them, yes. The general public? I seriously doubt it.

If not, then how do you isolate the plane carrying supplies from everyone? Drop the supplies with parachutes - an air lift?
    I already specified I support Intensive aid/med teams.
    But only in and out by Chartered flights with special precautions, including possible quarantine.
    COVERED.

    Duh..
    By the time they drove anywhere significant they'd probably be overtly sick if they were.
    (Can you even drive anywhere significant from ie, Monrovia, Liberia. Border Checkpoints too)
    They still can't Fly without Documentation/Passports from the 3 countries, and can't get to the USA/EU.
    COVERED.

    It's spectacularly Easy and several airlines/countries have done so, including British Airways and Kenya Airways.

    Again, what happens when one lands in Bombay, Libya, Mexico City, or Honduras, instead of Dallas?
    UNANSWERED.

    Stopping flights won't be 100%, but 90% is a Big improvement and will SLOW/CONTAIN the spread in good degree.
    Your DISINGENUOUS answer doesn't even disagree it could slow the spread dramatically, just BSes up technical objections.

    And again, what's the downside? Ten/Twenty thousand people loose their 'privilege' of International travel for a year?

    Indeed, Straight answers are impossible from your crowd because you have NO logical point, just kneejerk PC.

    What's the fastest way to spread Ebola in a hospital? Send an infected nurse on her rounds.

    Well, thankfully, we have Obamacare to save us all.

    Your rationale is so 19th century.
    Still more credible than your comment. Assuming for the moment that someone is rich enough to afford the airfare, Why would anyone pay twice the fare to bypass treatment in Europe (say) for the hideously expensive and more distant treatment offered in the USA?
