whatshisname: gja: That still leaves the government there as failing to ensure their people get the medical help they need and deserve.

I know another country that does that.

Cute, but an absolute fallacy if you are referring to the US. There is a vast difference between failing to fund universal healthcare and chasing off doctors willing to treat for free.
You are blind if you cannot see that, or a liar if you try to rationalize any parallel via such a false equivalence.

Resident Muslim: I've read people on twitter asking why wasn't MSM covering this.

Because the US media doesn't cover anything foreign that doesn't involve oil, spectacular natural disasters, or blonde women going missing.

gja: Screw them. I hope the populous get good and pissed and kill every goddamned one of the assholes responsible for these galactic-level stupidity.
You vote in assholes then deal with 'the dumb'. If you didn't vote them in, throw them out. With deadly hellish nightmare-style force if needed.

Your world is really small with a plaid skyline, isn't it?

Well, If you read the whole article you will read that "the populous" are actually the ones causing the injuries to the minorities the doctors were trying to treat.  Sometimes the populous are the bad guys.

Serious Black:   Denying a charity that just wants to provide health care to dying, needy people will get you on the nonstop flight to Hell in a hurry.

This is a regime whose leaders have been booking seats in first class on said flight for decades.
