    If you were military would you refuse to "fight" the Ebola virus.

    I guess dropping off medication is not enough, we now have to send our troops to face possible death.

    If you were ordered to go by the president, would you follow orders, or would you say no and face a dishonorable discharge?

    Any soldier who refuses should be prosecuted.

    I would do my duty, obviously.

    Anyone who refused such an order should be court martialed.

    20 years active duty and another 26 as a Department of the Army Civilian. I always followed orders. In either capacity I would follow this one if I was still in or working for the army.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I agree. Only someone who had little or nothing to do with the military would contemplate on disobeying it. Besides, those that go will be medical personal who are specially qualified along with the equipment to handle the situation.

    "Fight" the virus how, exactly?

    Do you mean serving in an affected area, or something more... Shall we say, "direct?"

    Re: If you were military would you refuse to "fight" the Ebola virus.

    Now a GOP congressman is asking for money from the ACA fund for ebola.

    After Boehner's cheap shot at Obama for waiting too long.

    Never mind the quarter billion Obama has already spent on ebola.

    As FOX plays politics with our troops going to Liberia.

    And you wonder why I watch FOX right now with the "Special Report",
    and then report their treachory Fair, Balanced and Unafraid .

    No question about it - do my duty.

    Anyone that refuses to go should be court martialed.

    I've been given some pretty hard orders to follow in my carreer, but never thought twice about following them to the letter.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I doubt they are just sending soldiers to stand around with their guns... they are sending soldiers that are trained or prepared for such a crisis.
