As a retired U.S. Army officer I protest . Our men and women enlisted to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and the republic it stands for. The U.S. Army is not a humanitarian organization. It designed to protect U.S. national security and American citizens. Has Obama lost his mind?
Consider the following evidence. is much more contagious than the government is telling the people and the available science speaks clearly to this fact.
Dr. Lee Hieb, former president of the has stated that “You can see that these doctors, who are highly trained people, got themselves infected… So sending troops into an area, if they’re dealing one-on-one with a patient, they’re not going to be able to protect themselves very well. It’s not easy to [prevent transmission], because you get tired and you get careless and you make some simple mistakes. All it takes is one virus particle.”
, president of the , has stated that, “I’m just appalled. Judging from this, the United States seems to have a very confused vision of what ‘national security’ means.” Donelly went on to state that .
Further research indicates that scientists have known for six to eight years that Ebola is an airborne virus.
I find it incredulous that the “lame stream media”, and the Obama administration are silent as to the gravity of in which millions of people in this and billions in the entire world are at great risk.
There exists a large body of evidence that shows just . And not one of these studies has aired in the “lame stream media”.
No one knows for certain how Ebola virus is from one person to the next. The virus has been found in the saliva, stool, breast milk, semen, of infected persons.
Body fluids (e.g. vomit, diarrhea, blood, and saliva) can result in the inhalable aerosol particles in the immediate vicinity of an infected person. Coughing was identified among some cases in a 1995 outbreak in . Coughs are widely known to emit in . Actual produces an aerosol and has been implicated in airborne transmission of gastrointestinal viruses. Regarding , toilet flushing that disperses in the air.
If you are still not convinced that we are sending our troops into a situation where they will likely contract Ebola through , then consider that both Marburg and Ebola viruses can be isolated from sera and tissue culture medium at room temperature for up to 46 days! Even in the most optimal of conditions, aerosolized Ebola, and viruses, at 50% to 55% relative humidity and 72°F, had biological decay rates of 3.06%. and 1.55% per minute, respectively. These rates indicate that 99% loss in aerosol infectivity would occur in 104, and 162 minutes, respectively. Simply put, when our troops walk into an infected zone, they can be infected for one hour and 44 minutes after the release of the Ebola into the air. When it comes to , the virus can be contracted through aerosolized means for a period of two hours and forty-two minutes. Almost three hours!
There is also strong experimental evidence that . the unexpected death of two rhesus monkeys housed approximately three meters from monkeys infected with Ebola virus, concluding that respiratory or eye exposure to aerosols was the .
This scientific evidence merely scratches the surface with regard to the available data related to these facts as they are presented in this article.
A facemask, or surgical mask, offers no or very minimal protection from infectious aerosol particles.
armed with far less protective gear than workers who are contracting the Ebola virus in great numbers, are going to die. And for what? What possible mission can combat troops fulfill in a healthcare mission? How can anyone conclude that Obama is not deliberately putting several thousand troops at risk by inserting these men and women into ? Some have speculated that this Obama’s way of degrading of our military. I must admit that this must be considered as a distinct possibility. Wouldn’t a concerned and competent President be preventing flights from Ebola outbreak areas from entering the U.S.? Furthermore, Obama , thus, making the citizens of this country vulnerable to the entry of Ebola from i as well as the distinct possibility of inviting an Ebola .
