Open Borders Invite Threat Of Ebola Terrorism
Invewstor's Business Daily ^ | July 30, 2014 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 07/30/2014 4:25:02 PM PDT by raptor22

War On Terror: As the Ebola disease spreads in Africa and detainees from that continent are apprehended, the question must be asked: What if terrorists already willing to die try to bring the disease across our porous southern border?

The Ebola outbreak that has killed at least 672 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone could land in the U.S., according to John O'Connor, a spokesman for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"It's true," he says, "that anyone with an illness is just one plane ride away from coming to the U.S." Indeed, a Liberian man infected with Ebola boarded a plane and brought the disease to Lagos, Nigeria, Africa's largest city, with 21 million people.

But what if in the future it's no accident? Nigeria is the home of Boko Haram. The Islamic terrorist group ISIL has long been recruiting terrorists in the West and is known to have members with Western, even American, passports.

Deliberately spreading the disease to the U.S. might not even require a plane ride, and it's possibile that terrorists already willing to strap bombs to their bodies might just as willingly get infected and pay a coyote to get them across our open southern border.

A Obama made invasion at our southern border could very likely kill many Americans.
After all, if a 10 yr. old kid can get across the border what is stopping a terrorist!

Which fence indicates a former superpower on a suicide mission, and which indicates a superpower willing to defend itself from invasion?

The EXEMPT obviously welcome Ebola with open
borders (despite America HATING THEM FOR IT), because
1) THEY alone are protected.
2) They will institute marshal law and get MORE POWER
and forever.

“Welcome to the party, pal!”

This is what I and other Freepers have been saying from the start of this Ebola episode. Why do terrorists have to sweat about sneaking weapons onto planes, at great cost and difficulty, when they can take advantage of a disease? A simple vial or capsule containing diseased fluid, consumed just prior to going through a security checkpoint at an airport, each taken by a dozen or two co-conspirators willing to be martyrs to the cause, can bring this country to it's knees. And there is very little that can be done to prevent it.

Basic N95 masks are currently around 20 for $10 on Amazon.com. More for nicer ones with the exhaust valve. Selling briskly. Got mine ordered. If it happens, good luck getting them locally.

Maks will be useless. Ebola is not airborne unless you get sprayed with the body fluid from an infected person. It is not transmitted by air. the best protection is disposable gloves and learning to remove them without touching them Same goes for your clothing. Practice removing your clothing without touching an outside surface.

If Ebola comes to your community, disposable suits would be a smart investment.

Obama should be impeached for leaving the borders open, especially when the CDC has Ebola at level 2 threat. Most have probably have seen the many articles out there warning, but this administration will keep the borders open until Ebola is here, then it’s too late. If our leaders think they can escape this, we will have proof this are delusional.

Two Americans providing humanitarian assistance (Samaritans Purse) in West Africa have become infected with Ebola. Family members of one of them, Kent Brantly, a doctor, had been living with him in Africa, but returned to the USA before he began showing symptoms. To be careful, however, the family is on a “21-day fever watch,” in which they are being asked to monitor themselves for symptoms, says Stephan Monroe, deputy director of the CDC’s national center for emerging and zoonotic infectious diseases.

Yep. Once here and showing symptoms, mix some body fluids into a pink misting fan: walk down a crowded NYC street, stand over a crowded DC subway stairwell, upper decks at a baseball game, etc. Go to an amusement/water park for the day, an outdoor concert, clubbing at night, swim in a resevoir, maybe even get yourself arrested and thrown into GP for a day. The possibilities are endless.
