    Pretty much an effective and historic use for the military. I would not violate my oath.

    I believe the people in the military that go should be volunteers.

    I hate to say this but I don't believe any other CIC would ask to the troops to do this.

    Most do, some don't.

    Yet Charles Krauthammer effusely praised the President for using Command and Control as the only ones in the world that could do this.
    I have never heard him speak like this about Mr. Obama and probably never will again.

    You seem to forget the great work done by GWB in Africa in stopping the AIDs epidemic--all give him kudos for this great accomplishment .

    It shows just how low the GOP will go to demonize the President and politicize every damn problem in this world--and now it's ebola.
    I thought common sense GOPs would catch on after a while--I was wrong .

    There's nothing left about doing the right thing.
    You'll be the first to complain about your CiC not doing enough when ebola hits the USA .

    I don't care what they "signed up for" they are servants of the Republic. They go where they are told to go or they face prosecution. End of discussion.

    If you were ordered to go by the president, would you follow orders, or would you say no and face a dishonorable discharge?
    Considering I deployed to Afghanistan, where there's real danger, no I would not refuse. I'm not quite sure what you're expecting is going to happen, but soldiers won't be licking the inside of ebola patients' cheeks.

    Considering we've all long suspected you were a coward, this isn't surprising in the slightest.
