    You shouldn't join the U.S. military.

    That is 100% known to anyone signing up....and made clear as well when they sign their oath.

    Are you claiming our troops are unintelligent?

    When there are airdrops, the people also need to be protected when those supplies are handed out. Again: more security to prevent rioting and to conduct things in an orderly fashion. We did this is the Sudan and Somalia. Otherwise people come in and steal it all for the black market. They guard convoys from similar 'pirates.'


    And the more we *support the treatment of the people there* the less chance there is that the disease will spread. They dont have enough facilities for patients...so they are MOVING them elsewhere. Our troops will help build and/or protect those doing the building.

    This is not rocket science.
    I'm well aware of the capability of our military, having served in it. We could send them to Guam and have them shovel it into the Pacific. We shouldn't have them do that either.

    How would that protect and defend America?

    :raises eyebrow: having been involved in a few HADR ops myself, I have to ask - do you have any idea what you are talking about, or are you literally just making stuff up as you go along?
