The Obama administration is getting serious about a threat posed to the world. No, not the terrorist army currently grabbing land throughout the Middle East, beheading Americans, selling women into sexual slavery, and executing thousands on a whim, but the Ebola virus.
The White House announced last night that they’re sending 3000 American troops to West Africa to combat the spread of the virus.
Yes, the Obama administration will send troops to a part of the world where we have no national security interests to control the spread of a deadly virus that has only made its way to this country by us importing it, but not to the place where people are slaughtering human beings at will.
Are they going to shoot the virus?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for helping stop the spread of Ebola, but I’m more in the favor of stopping the spread of radical Islam.
In a sense, they’re related – one is spread through human excrement, the other is human excrement. They’re both just a plane flight or illegal border crossing away from inflicting harm on this country, but only one has said that’s one of their goals.
I’ll leave it to you to decide which is the bigger threat.
