Why is Obama taking reservists out of civilian jobs to send into Ebola hot zones?

Some things are just dumb and some things are absolutely insane. Such is the decision made by Barack Hussein Obama via executive order on Thursday.

As reported by Politico, “President Obama authorized the Pentagon to call up military reservists to help fight the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The president issued an executive order and a letter to Congress that said he’d deemed it “necessary to augment the active armed forces of the United States for the effective conduct of Operation United Assistance, which is providing support to civilian-led humanitarian assistance and consequence management support related to the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa.”

“About 540 U.S. active duty troops are now posted in Liberia, helping its government, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other agencies fight the outbreak. Obama’s order would permit the Pentagon to call up National Guard troops or military reservists to join the effort.”

I do believe the U.S. military can play a part in combatting the spread of the Ebola virus — here in America, but not overseas — and especially not in the Ebola “hot zone. Of course it’s just too easy to point out the irony of Obama’s intransigence regarding “boots on the ground” to combat an enemy that has beheaded Americans — but somehow combatting Ebola is more important.

If we have healthcare professionals in America who have contracted this disease, why are we sending in our own troops who aren’t trained or prepared for this endeavor? And where is the United Nations? Where is the World Health Organization?

So now we’re going to take men and women out of their civilian jobs and deploy them into a dangerous virus zone? Has Obama secured safe transit and clearance for these troops when they redeploy from West Africa? I understand our military providing humanitarian assistance – as a matter of fact in late 2005, I remember an earthquake hitting us in Kabul ,Afghanistan at the Military Training Center. The epicenter was over in Pakistan. And our military executed humanitarian assistance operations into Pakistan to provide aid. It’s important to note the exact same helicopters that were flying combat operations in Afghanistan were tasked to fly cross-border into the country where the enemy had sanctuary to fulfill that mission.

We got that, and saluted our brave men and women, saluted the flag and executed the operation. However, in this case, Obama is deploying our men and women into an area where they’ll be exposed to a deadly killer enemy against which they cannot fight. Why? Is this the warped sense of commitment Obama sees for our military that he and his policies are decimating?

Politico reports “as many as 4,000 or more American troops could deploy to West Africa to help fight the Ebola outbreak there, Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. They’re helping build and support Ebola treatment units, run mobile testing labs and train health care workers in an all-out effort to containing the deadly virus. USAID’s leader in Monrovia, Ben Hemingway, told reporters at the Pentagon by phone on Thursday that it was “difficult” to assess whether the outbreak has slowed since the international response began. The current military commander in Liberia, Maj. Gen. Darryl Williams (an Army Artilleryman with whom I served in the 4th Infantry Division) said Marines are still flying to remote parts of the country doing “site surveys” for areas where they could build the Ebola treatment units.”

“U.S. troops have been tasked with building 17 treatment centers, 65 “community care centers” and setting up four more mobile testing labs. The Pentagon estimates operations there could last a year or more. Each service member deploying to Liberia is getting special instructions on preventing infection, Williams said, and everyone is taking intense precautions to avoid infection. For example, Williams estimated he’d had his temperature taken eight times just on Wednesday. “It’s discipline,” he said. “Everyday in the morning with my breakfast, I take a malaria pill … We don’t shake hands. I wash my hands — a lot — with chlorine.”

“MG Williams said commanders have contingency plans in case an American soldier or aid worker does contract Ebola: Those patients would be isolated, quarantined and flown to the U.S. for treatment.”

“He acknowledged, however, the arrangements aren’t yet clear for American personnel whose normal duty stations are overseas. It isn’t clear, for example, whether the Marines who deployed to Liberia from Spain would have to be quarantined before they can return there, or whether Williams’ own staff members could rotate directly back to Caserma Ederle [Vicenza] Italy (where I served as a young lieutenant).”

So there are SOFA (Status of Forces Agreement) details that apparently haven’t been hammered out.

I know Major General Darryl Williams and am quite sure he’ll accomplish the mission assigned to him, but I question why the Commander-in-Chief deployed our military into a very dangerous area to build treatment centers and “community care centers?” Our men and women shouldn’t be used as some sort of hired hands. We could have easily provided prefab shelters that are easy for host nation personnel to construct. And I am further concerned about calling up additional reservists and exposing them to this deadly virus.

This is a disconcerting misuse of our U.S. military. I wonder if the Commander-in-Chief will visit those troops during the year he has committed them. And lastly, what are their rules of engagement during this deployment?

Oh yeah, I know why……….

Obama promised to change America. He is doing so from the inside out. He is sending them over there so they can contract the infection then be brought back here to be treated and expose our medical community so we can be exposed. His goal is to turn us into a third world country like those to the south of us!

Dana Davis

What Obama has been doing is attempting to discourage enlistment; in this way he also discourages reservists.

hotwaterbottle

I was thinking this would definitely discourage the typical person from enlisting. But it didn’t occur to me that the Pres would want that. Why do you think he does?

Not sure why he would send the ARNG, as that is where ALL of the Army’s reserve combat power is. I gues I could see USAR assets going, where most of the Army’s reserve medical assets are located. BLUF: Soldiers are going to contract this disease and unfortunately some are going to die.

If you accept that Obama is intent on causing America to fall, it all becomes simple to understand. Reservists, like most military personell, will be the ones who will stand against the White House when the civil war explodes. As an outsider to America, it’s as plain as the nose on my face.

Good to hear from you, Pete. When did they let you out of the mental hospital?

Pete Gardner
Guest

So let me understand this. You crack a joke about me having a developmental disability, making it seem that such people are somehow second class to you and your perfect mind. Then you go on a streak about how Andy said something that you felt was racist. Where do you draw the line, my friend?

nunja
Guest

No. Not a developmental disability. You clearly have a mental illness. (though I wouldn’t rule out a developmental disability, frankly). I was being facetious, but if you really believe what you wrote, you probably have a psychotic-spectrum disorder. You should get that checked out before it gets too out of hand.

Pete Gardner
Guest

So now you’re suggesting that people with mental illness are fair game for ridicule? What sort of person are you?

nunja
Guest

Pete. Pete. It was a joke. Are you one of those sperm guzzling PC libtards Andy was talking about?

Seriously though. if you do believe what you wrote (that a civil war is coming and Obama is sending out the opposition to get Ebola), you clearly are delusional. Do you really believe that, or was that just hyperbole?

I suppose you would go in a heartbeat. It is a volunteer situation. I gather you are neither military, nor reserve. So, what’s stopping you? A lot of people who volunteered understood they might face war, but if they had to decide on something like this, it might have made a difference. It’s easy to be flippant when it isn’t you who has to face this. I heard that our troops, and now these reserves, won’t even be getting the full body hazmat suits.

Pete Gardner

I didn’t think this could get any better, but it has!

You started out discriminating against developmentally disabled people with a little joke at my expense, then you go on an anti-racial-discrimination tirade against Andy, then you’re back to discriminating against mentally ill people, and now you wrap it all up in a nice bow of gay-bashing. That remark about sperm guzzling certainly wasn’t meant as a compliment, was it? You are a true enigma, Mr. nunja!

nunja

It just dawned on me that I’m trying to have a rational conversation with a man who believes the president of the United States is trying to get rid of his enemies by sending them to Africa to get Ebola, so that when the civil war comes he’ll have less opposition. And, I’m surprised he doesn’t understand sarcasm.

nunja

Wow. Pete. I guess I should explain my comment a little clearer. 1) If you believe what you said, I think you may have a mental illness. I am 100% not joking about this. This is serious. 2) I do not endorse “gay bashing”- I was joking about Andy’s over-the-top, in his own admission, “vile” comments towards me. I do find it ironic that you would accuse me of being insensitive to people with mental illness, considering the fact that the republican platform is based on the idea that America is too PC.

Congratulations. You managed to convince a sane person to try to communicate with you. Got me! Now I feel like a idiot for trying to reason with you. It was all part of your brilliant tactic.

I’m having some trouble understanding something here: Do you really believe the civil war thing? When people say stuff like this- it sounds so far from anything that could remotely occur- that I can’t tell if it is sarcasm or serious. Please answer the question. You’ll be doing a service to your country by educating a liberal.

Hey race pimp. Learn what ‘house boy’ means……………

Houseboy – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houseboy

Wikipedia

A houseboy is typically a male domestic worker or personal assistant who performs cleaning and personal chores. The term has history within British colonialism ..

nunja
Guest

I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. You called me a houseboy without knowing what a houseboy was. Fair enough.

On to your actual question. What will these reservists do? They’ll help enforce quarantines, make sure the hospitals have necessary supplies, manage the logistics of the situation. They aren’t going to be coming into actual physical contact with people with ebola. None of these people are going to actually get ebola.

Andy Martin
Guest

You still picking up Obama’s drawers houseboy?

So the soldiers are going to do what the locals can do. Isn’t that great. Put our people in direct contact with a deadly disease to do general labor? That’s what we trained them for? And then you idiotically say they will not get Ebola? You’re a damn fool Obamite.

If we really want to stop Ebola, we have to do it in Africa. in Amurica, 2 out of over 300,000,000 currently have ebola. I get it. It’s hard to take orders from a black man. Especially when the orders are to go help other black folks.

Truth is though, it’s in our best interests to do whatever we can to help them contain ebola so that more people don’t come to the US with Ebola.

Just what are these non medical reservists and regular soldiers supposed to do in West Africa per Ebola.

West, if we fight Ebola here, it will spread in Africa and find other ways of getting into this country. Remember the man in Dallas went thru 2 different countries to get here. Ebola is in Spain too.

Four hours of training and they are ready to work in an Ebola area? If the CDC had any brains, they would be working with and funding a volunteer group called Doctors Without Borders who have been working there for years. They have the experience and expertise to cope with the situation, the CDC should be letting the pros in the Ebola “war” take care of the situation there and not infect any more Americans.

What can the army do here unless there’s a Walking Dead type breakout. The goal of sending people over there is to exactly not to have it spread here. Viruses don’t need airplanes to travel.

Of course he is sending reservists to combat Ebola. Isn’t that what a military does? This guy is a complete Idiot!! Then again, maybe this is part of his grand plan to bring the United States of America to it’s knees. Rendering our military useless because the are all dead or dieing from Ebola. Makes it a lot easier for ISIS to run wild with Iran.

Maybe the reservists and National Guard are being sent because too many of our regular troops are fighting and dYing in a useless war most of you appear to support. Geez, ya always want it both ways. Troops/no troops, no czar/now we want a czar ( check your party’s position on czars if you know how), inclusive party/let’s make voting as difficult as possible for those who usually vote against “us” Need I go on. You need a new acronym: MPDP. Multiple Personality Disorder Party.

With as many golf courses as they have, I’m surprised obama isn’t going golfing in Liberia. No, really. He should.

Mr. Obama Is behaving consistently as someone who is dedicated to an agenda outside the mainstream of the electorate. I believe his actions and reactions in running the government reflect the values of someone who has a global agenda. the average American I don’t believe are even aware of whats going on in Washington. Of course this emboldens the current administration. they seem to thrive and count on this apathy. In the meantime the voices of reason and prudence are silent. There is not a unifying voice leading reasonable folks out of this mess. Its clear to me Mr. Obama… Read more »

The non-drones understand that they are hell-bent on creating a series of events that cause catastrophic conditions in this country. What I don’t understand, if they hate this country that much, why haven’t they expatriated?

A very simplistic and narrow view of the situation.

The president is acting as he should to solve a crisis at its source. Allen West is so narrow minded he has no understanding but only writes hate for our president. Allen our country is a country of compassion and people like you have no concern for others but only your own agenda. I can not imagine a higher purpose for these soldiers that will help stop this disease from spreading across Africa – It is one way we win the heart and minds of people around the world and protect our own people at the same time. I praise… Read more »

Your an idiot and definitely not… an American patriot, but an ill informed person thriving on misguide illusions of deception.

You are out of your mind.

This situation calls for healthcare professionals– not military personnel who have no medical training.

We could load up cargo planes with prefabricated buildings and let the Liberians construct them. We can provide medicine, clothing and needed hospital equipment to any country in need.

This is terribly unfair to the men and women who serve our country and keep us free. There is no justification for needlessly putting them at risk.

obama’s actions make absolutely no sense and actually endangers us all. He lets ISIS kill people and now Ebola. Both terrorize and kill people, including members of our military, active or in the reserve.

It’s all a part of an overall scheme of population control. Remember the Georgia Guide Stones 10 commandments – #1. Maintain earths population at 500 million.
And the Bible talks about great segments of the earths population dying due to disease. So here we are, and although we have a Surgeon General, CDC, HHS, Homeland Security, etc. Obama appoints yet another ‘czar” and like the others, a political hack. We’re on our way people.

Why are the 4000 reservist not securing the Southern border … protecting America from Ebola … protecting America from ISIS … protecting America from an economic collapse..

I get a kick out of the libtards who keep spewing that “we need to fight Ebola there instead of here” in order to justify the dumbphuckery of using troops yet not being able to explain how troops will stop Ebola.
Weren’t these the same mongrels who mocked GW for saying “we need to fight terrorism there”?

It’s obvious why B. Hussein O. is sending troops to “combat ebola” and not to fight ISIL. He HATES our military. So, send them to a disease outbreak. They’ll likely contract the disease suffer and die. If they go to battle ISIL, they’ll WIN, and his radical muslim buddies will cease to exist. It’s that simple.
