*COUGHSBULLSHIAT*  Step 1: find Ebola virus  Step 2: by using gene splicing, replace the Ebola's liquid vector distribution with an airborne distribution (from body fluids to lets say the flu virus) 3)wipe out hundreds of millions if not billions of people.  4)Who has the capability to do this?  4a:the biological research facility located at Fort Gordon, Georgia, which is fairly close to the CDC in Atlanta, GA where one of the patients was taken.

You do the math, people.  The military is going to militarize that stuff, and we are going to DIEimg.fark.net

Yes, a virus that's been around for 40 years and the military wants to look at it just now. And the only way they can get a sample is to bring an infected person.

I find that when I am in agreement with someone right-wing, such as Donald Trump, its only a matter of time before they say something so abhorrent. For Trump, it was literally the same tweet. Don't let them into America-can't argue with that. They should suffer the consequences for helping people - dude...

We have endemic plague, anthrax, and hantavirus.

All are deadly, all are far more communicable than ebola and we don't ship our citizens to some remore island to treat them.  Modern medicine is perfectly capable of keeping them isolated and preventing an epidemic.  Ebola is no different and less scary than Hanta or the brain eating amoeba that's been killing people down in Florida.

Why not let them into America? It's 2014, we know how to handle this shiat. They were transported in a specialized aircraft staffed by highly trained personnel and flown immediately to the CD-farking-C.

Real life isn't the movies or Pandemic the board game. There's practically no risk in bringing the two patients here the way we did. Science, people - study it the fark out.

Orly? I can argue with it. In fact, an intelligent and informed five-year-old could - because it's stupid.
It is a certainty that there are already "well carriers" of ebola wandering every continent - the "strategy" of trying to keep Ebola safely locked up in Africa isn't a strategy at all. The disease needs to be studied under conditions not available in the bush.
Hence, Ebola patients need to be brought here for treatment and study.

Aside from outbreaks like the current one, it's not a particularly contagious or widespread disease. In the almost forty years Ebola has been known, it has infected on average fewer than a thousand people a year, on a continent with a population of more than a billion.
If it somehow became as widespread in the US as it is in Africa (which is unlikely, as long as you don't serve undercooked monkey burgers from infected animals at your bbq), it would kill fewer than 300 people a year in a country where more than 70,000 die of diabetes. Get some perspective, panic mongers.

So you are happy to support an incredibly ignorant position that would have the consequence of killing American citizens, but unwilling to expose that your pointless fear and callous disregard for the suffering of others is a symptom of exceptional selfishness. You fault Donald Trump not for his dangerous cowardice, but his harmless convction.

People are idiots. In another thread where this was mentioned, one of our resident teenage conservatrolls complimented Trump on his "common sense".

Yawn. The soviets aerosolized Marburg and created efficient distribution symptoms since the 70s. Marburg is Ebola's cousin in filovirus family.

Oh and most bio research is done at USAMRIID in Fort Detrick, Maryland.

A person on my FB page was sharing with everyone last night a breitbart.com article how its in Great Britain but Obama is keeping it quiet as the virus runs rampant over there. I spammed the hell out of her page with numerous articles (including this video as of 5min ago) how anyone saying we are going to die from Ebola coming over the border from an army of toddlers or otherwise is full of crap. Her response was i don't believe in scientists. Me: Ok...don't vaccinate your kid. Her: well um...err...why do you suck Obama's dick?

Ahh, but Ebola is media savvy. Sure, those three that you mentioned (1 bacteria, 2 virus) are nasty and probably easier to spread than this incarnation of Ebola, they're not attention whores like Ebola is.

Ebola has a much higher mortality rate, and kills in a particularly gruesome way. Now that's, literally, real viral marketing.

The North American Sin Nombre Hantavirus has a mortality rate of 50%, according to the CDC, compared with about 55%-60% for the currernt Ebola outbreak.

Good grief that Boobies was nice troll. Ebola very poor pathogen for epidemic in any developed country with education and infrastructure. Bioweapons very poor tool of war. Hard to aim and deliver. Only really works on ignorant savages.

I have to admit, I don't welcome a new deadly disease arriving in the US of A.  I know Ebola isn't an easy disease to transmit (thankfully), but neither is AIDS.  I'm on team "stomp on this thing now".   Difficulty: No internment camps, and let's not make this about Honduran kids.
