He is entitled to his opinion.
Just because he does know if he wants to ship to a foreign country to offer assistance to non-Americans that are suffering from a disease with a roughly 70% mortality rate...I don't think that makes him a coward.
I think that makes him human.
I often disagree with him and agree with you, but I don't think helping non-American, Ebola victims in Africa is what most Americans signed up for when they entered their recruitment office.
If it was a volunteer-only assignment, I am not sure what I would do.
But either way, I would be afraid of contracting the illness.
I hope that does not make me a coward in your eyes - as I have respect for you - but there it is.
