It also calls for building 17 treatment centres with 100 beds each; placing U.S. Public Health Service personnel in new field hospitals in Liberia; training thousands of healthcare workers for six months or longer; and creating an "air bridge" to get health workers and medical supplies into West Africa more quickly.
Obama said that if the outbreak is not stopped now, hundreds of thousands of people may become infected, "with profound political and economic and security implications for all of us." "This is an epidemic that is not just a threat to regional security. Its a potential threat to global security, if these countries break down, if their economies break down, if people panic. That has profound effects on all of us, even if we are not directly contracting the disease," Obama added.

The “air bridge” ought bring back enough Ebola
to seal the fate of the USA
for the undocumented Indonesian
Impostor, so beloved by the EXEMPT.
And full up on the return journey with new dim voters and unattached children......
...some "air bridge" indeed.
Where’s the comments section on the article? Those used to be epic on Yahoo articles.
Maybe we should be exterminating the Islam virus....
Active Duty ping.
There may be time for some of us to volunteer, this isn’t over yet and it may reach here in a bad way.
If it gets bad, then volunteering will become something for some of us to look into.
And the troops going over there are all inoculated against ebola, right?
If not, are they going to be dressed in hazmat suits all the time?
If not, how many of them will become infected through contact with patients, materials, etc.?
Where the heck is the Surgeon General. He’s got such a neat uniform and must be at least a 4 star general equivalent. But how can he lead his troops if he is back in Washington in his safe and cushy office. I think he and all his subordinate Colonels, Majors, etc. in the Public Health Service should be on planes to Africa.
Sure they will have to face the Ebola crisis first hand but that’s what they are paid the big bucks for and besides they can get merit badges for hand washing, safe sneezing, trench toileting, etc. to proudly wear on their uniforms.
Let’s hear it America, “no more leading from behind” except by His Arrogance, of course.
If there has ever been one, this is a health crisis that should result in very restricted travel to and from the affected African nations until the ebola outbreak is under control. Haven’t heard a word about travel restrictions.
The security threat is on our border, Obunghole.
Doesn’t matter. He won’t protect the border..
When Americans start dying in Africa of ebola there will be a ginned up hue and cry to bring the boys home. They will come home and they will bring ebola with them.
“Obama said that if the outbreak is not stopped now, hundreds of thousands of people may become infected”
Its racist for only Africans to die from Ebola so Obozo wants to bring it here so our fair share of Americans can die.
Yours is the money quote
