Not only has Obama sent (is sending) more than 4,000 United States military personnel to Ebola Africa (how many will come back with Ebola and/or die there?) but he has just penned an Executive Order to call up National Guard to be sent to Africa where Ebola is raging.
While he fought ‘tooth and nail’ to keep National Guard from protecting our southern border here in America, apparently he has no problem sending them off to Africa…
So, let me get this straight – to protect the American people, he won’t stop people from entering the United States from Ebola infected African countries (unlike countless other nations who have banned flights-passengers from these same countries to help keep the Ebola virus out), instead he will send National Guard (regular folks who put in one weekend a month who have regular jobs) to risk their lives for these same African countries?
The National Guard is purposed to protect life and property in individual states, and to protect the nation by being prepared to defend the United States.
Do you think that governors will resist this request?
Sending National Guard to Ebola Africa virtually guarantees wider spread of Ebola virus on their return home to the Untied States, and more rapid exposure to the public at large. How many will lose their lives?
How many National Guard ever thought that they would be sent half way around the world to risk their lives to an invisible killer, Ebola?
Why not ban traffic from West Africa?
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is authorizing the Pentagon to call up reserve and National Guard troops if they are needed to assist in the U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
The U.S. has already committed to sending up to 4,000 military personnel to West Africa to provide logistics and help build treatment units to confront the rapidly spreading and deadly virus.
Obama signed an executive order Thursday that permits the Pentagon to use the reservists and Guard troops.
Obama also notified top congressional officials of his move.
What is your opinion of this? Any National Guard out there reading this?
Curious to hear your take…
