Send Obama to Africa to work with Ebola patients, he’s not needed in any capacity here.
H/T to Jim for the commends immediately below.
Obama’s really pulling out the stops to do away with the Armed Forces of the Unites States, isn’t he? If he can’t get them killed off outright (suicidal Rules of Engagement, exposure to incurable pestilences , etc), he’s simply going to make it hard to recruit new troops.
Who in his/her right mind would ever enlist (even some young stud as an infantryman in the Airborne) given a strong possibility of being casually dumped into the middle of a biological Hot Zone?
Obama finding ‘news ways to put my son’s life in danger’
Army mom says soldiers deployed to Africa ‘not medical units, not social workers’
By Michael Carl
Amid the Defense Department’s vague explanations of the mission of U.S. troops deployed in West Africa, the mother of one soldier who already has done tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan is expressing outrage.
“I am constantly amazed at the myriad ways this government finds to put my military son’s life in danger,” Judy Turner told WND.
She explained simply the president is “exposing all of those soldiers to a potentially fatal disease.”
“They are not medical units; they are not trained medically,” she said. “They are not social workers. My son has said before that he’s not a peacekeeper and he’s not a medical missionary. He says he doesn’t want to be. So, why are doing this? What is the purpose? Tell me!”
The highly contagious and often fatal Ebola virus has claimed more than 4,000 lives in West Africa. Defense officials say the soldiers will be given protective gear. But Turner has some knowledge of such specialized clothing, having worked at a nuclear power plant.
“It was a process that I had to go through, and it took at least two people to help me go through putting on the protective gear for radiation. I know what that kind of process entails, and he’s never been taught that. We had to put on protective gear to cover every inch of skin. We had to put on special booties and we had to know how to put on all of that gear,” she explained.
“Are they going to train him? How much training is he going to get, and how much training are the other soldiers going to get? Are they going to double and triple glove? Are they going to require oxygen gear? And if so, how long is their supply going to last?” Turner said.
Turner also questions if there will be any rules of engagement if the soldiers deployed to Liberia encounter hostile activity.
“What if they end up having people shooting at them? Are they going to be allowed to shoot back? It’s just crazy. There are so many questions and no answers,” Turner said.
WND previously has reported the difficulty the Defense Department has had defining the Ebola mission.
The government has confirmed that an estimated 4,000 troops are being deployed. Defense officials have said the military will “support” the civilian-led response and construct a “command center,” treatment centers and training centers, even though private companies currently are hiring construction crews for various projects there.
As WND reported, Fluor Corp., a global construction company, will build temporary housing for U.S. troops in Liberia. Fluor does a variety of construction jobs and employs engineers, electricians and security personnel.
In exclusive interviews with WND, retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin and retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely condemned Obama’s decision to deploy troops to West Africa, arguing they could bring the virus to the United States or to other units.
Turner said the deployment decision is like Obama woke up at night and said: “‘Oh, I know, we’ll send the military. That’s what we’ll do.”
“He never consults anyone; he just makes these decisions with no input,” she charged.
Turner said her concerns were raised during her son’s most recent deployment to Afghanistan.
“It was in 2013. What were they doing there? What was their mission? They didn’t have a clear mission, and I didn’t understand why he was sent there again,” she said. “They couldn’t shoot back unless they could pinpoint the person who was shooting at them, because they weren’t supposed to hurt any of the civilians.”
