    I don't like it.

    I have also noticed that putting one's foot in one's mouth up to their knee is also common.
    If the soldiers who are in the hot zone are properly quaratened, there won't be a problem.

    Flamethrowers mounted on tanks and helicopters. The heat kills the virus.

    Can't we just ignore it and let people die?

    If you were ordered to go by the president, would you follow orders, or would you say no and face a dishonorable discharge?
    If it's within my MOS skills set, I would go. If it wasn't, I probably would recieve orders to go.

    If I was ordered to go and I wasn't trained for that type of mission, I could legally refuse to comply, because a soldier can't be ordered to go above and beyond the call of duty.

    So, in fact, yes, you do hold a bigoted derogatory view of the US military.

    However, you are wrong

    WHO's "if it gets really out of hand, which it's looking like it might" scenario is 500,000 infections. With a 53-57% death rate that is.... what, 275,000 people?

    Ain't God a peach?

    I wonder how they model these projections. You just know the final figure's gonna be 100,000 more or less than that.

    Properly quarantined... So, you don't see how that statement backs up my concern?

    Just because Obama hates the military is not a reason to send them there.........They did not sign up for this. I honestly don't know what I would do.
