U.S. Military Arrive Within Ebola Hot Zone – A Prayer For Our Soldiers….

Please join us in prayer…

US-Soldiers-deployed-to-Iraq-1

Father, we could never thank our military men and women enough for their courageous service and sacrifice to our country and its people.  Admitting our selfish flaws, today we lift up our voices to express gratefulness and honor to these military troops both from the past and present. Show us ways in our communities, churches, and families to thank and love them better.

Keep and protect these heroes and their families; keep our servicemen and women physically safe and in good health;  guard them from evil, be a Shield around them, and reflect grace upon them as the apple of Your eye.

Father, we are aware moms and dads, wives, husbands and their children are worried as their loved ones are re-deploying into a zone of terror and disease as a consequence of their commitment to duty. God of all comfort, please comfort their hearts, our hearts. Wrap Your infinite love around us like a warm quilt, and reinforce us to know that all can come to Your throne of grace any time, day or night, to pray for our soldier, Your soldier.

Father, please send Your angels around every one of our servicemen and women, and protect them with Your guiding hand upon them; Your strength within them; Your shield afore them; and Your love around them.

In Christ’s name, Amen

MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — Six U.S. military planes arrived in the Ebola hot zone Thursday with more Marines, as West Africa’s leaders pleaded for the world’s help in dealing with a crisis that one called “a tragedy unforeseen in modern times.”

“Our people are dying,” Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma lamented by videoconference at a World Bank meeting in Washington. He said other countries are not responding fast enough while children are orphaned and infected doctors and nurses are lost to the disease.

Alpha Conde of Guinea said the region’s countries are in “a very fragile situation.”

Ebola is “an international threat and deserves an international response,” he said, speaking through a translator as he sought money, medicine, equipment and training for health care workers.

Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said he was reminded of the start of the AIDS epidemic.

“We have to work now so this is not the next AIDS,” Frieden said.

The fleet of planes that landed outside the Liberian capital of Monrovia consisted of four MV-22 Ospreys and two KC-130s. The 100 additional Marines bring to just over 300 the total number of American troops in the country, said Maj. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, the commander leading the U.S. response.

Williams joined the American ambassador to Liberia, Deborah Malac, at the airport to greet the aircraft.

As vehicles unloaded boxes of equipment wrapped in green-and-black cloth, the Marines formed a line on the tarmac and had their temperatures checked by Liberian health workers. (read more)

    I’ve been worried sick ever since I found out that O had ordered our best and bravest. I’ve actually prayed they would mutiny en masse.

    I wish we had that serum for every one of these being sent, even that is not 100%, tho.

    Are there other examples in America’s history where we sent our military to such a deadly outbreak? I’d appreciate knowing about other missions.

    Our soldiers are not trained to fight disease, they are trained to fight enemy combatants. They are not the UN, they are not the Peace Corps. They are not doctors. This is absurd.

    They ARE trained to fight ISIS and yet they are not allowed…

        Col.(R) Ken ~ I was reading the other day that in addition to the countless problems in the hot spot hospitals, basic inventory of necessary supplies such as hand soap/mask/gloves & bleach are in short supply or completely out of inventory. Some of those working in the facilities just aren’t showing up to work, who could blame them? Those on burial detail & responsible for picking up bodies in homes or off the streets where they died QUIT working because they claimed they weren’t being paid, but officials quickly claimed there “was money to pay them/it would be resolved quickly.

        When there’s not enough beds for those infected, like the pregnant woman that rode in the cab w/Mr. Duncan in the back seat/later died that night, the hospital had no room for her in their hospital.. Countless pictures of dead Ebola victims dumped in the street to get them out of the houses being licked/smelled by dogs while others stood around ogling at the dead.

        I’ve read articles which claim: “our troops will have NO direct contact” w/Ebola victims BUT in the same article, it states: “the troops are building 5 facilities w/12 working in each facilty that will be testing BLOOD! (I assume the 12 will be working different shifts around the clock, IDK.)

    • David….maybe in YOUR sphere of influence. The REAL beliefs of the MAJORITY of this GREATEST of ALL Nations are NOT truly displayed by the MSM nor in MOST arenas of popular discourse. If the TRUTH were known, we would STILL be the AMERICA we once were. THIS Blog, this TREEHOUSE, these BEST of the BEST who perch upon it’s branches ARE the representatives of that “silent majority” that Ronald Reagan spoke of. That majority that because of the “TRIPE” they see and hear EVERY day on TV and hear on radio, have been led to think they are alone in their values and principles. Well Dave, all I can tell you is, find a “branch”, get comfortable, and watch, listen and learn from America’s finest, or at least as fine since John Hancock with conviction and flourish penned his name to the greatest document ever written outside of the Bible and our Constitution! David….We ARE the majority….We ARE the Republic….and We AREN’T going away!!!!………..We are WOLVERINES!!!!!!

    Look at all those white, patriotic, American lovers of life.

    Christ said that the Enemy comes for naught but to kill, and to steal, and to destroy. We see that a whole lot, lately, both abroad and here at home. The opposite is heal, give, and build. That’s just what we who love God and our nation above ourselves DO. We aren’t really into beheadings, looting, and burning down property.

    God has put us here for a reason — and sadly, enRAGINGLY — that demon-possessed bastard Obama has put these white, patriotic, American lovers of life THERE for a reason. May God have mercy on his empty soul.

    And may He bless all of you greatly, and use you all for His great purpose, too, Treepers.

    I never quit praying that last bit. Know this, my friends.

    I’m actually unclear on the military’s mission there. If they are there to close borders, then military makes sense. If they are there to handle people? Not so much sense… unless it is Obola’s goal to decrease the number of military people.

    As for whether or not these people are “volunteers”? “They are all volunteers” because they joined the service voluntarily. After that, there isn’t much true volunteerism. There is hazardous duty pay and at the end of the day, it’s “a little more money” that drives some people… that and a sensation of being invincible resulting from their own internal propaganda. [read morale boosting programs] (Note: I am a veteran of the first Iraqi war… well, sort of.. I was in the Navy on a cozy aircraft carrier. Still, I was “in” when it was “on.”)

    I don’t see much good coming from it.

    This disease and its spread is part super-disease and part population-ignorance. The population-ignorance is complex in that it is due to their history of local destruction (war-lords raiding and all that) with no priority on building infrastructure while those with money continue to do their profiteering. Their top schools are quite empty due in no small part to the fact that in a not-so-recent story indicated that no one could pass the entrance exams. (No “disparate impact argument can be made there”) And there are lots more… (their consumption of “bush meat” because no one dares to create businesses of agriculture and ranching as government and war lords will destroy and steal all they have among so many other causes.)

    I don’t see a way out of their pit without “starting over.” They can’t seem to see a future beyond “destroy my enemy” which drives them. Some fires are best handled by creating fire breaks and letting the remaining fires burn themselves out. Some would find the “human cost” unimaginable, but I would point to the lives they have already been leading — their life expectancies, their death and disease rates and all of that. I am rather familiar with it — it was ALREADY really bad, but to clue you in, look at their behavior of handling ebola patients and bodies. Do you think it’s bad education or “bad habits”? That’s just how they handle death and disease there because it’s just all too common out there.

    Isolate and let the fire burn itself out. There cannot be a “cure” for it. There can be no “make comfortable” while dying. The only thing that can be done is to manage quarantines — move whatever healthy people that can be identified to “safe areas” and collect those who survived the disease for analysis and possible cure/prevention research. That’s about the best that can reasonably be done.

    As twisted as our leaders are, I suspect the underlying motivation is to get as many military men away from their home base before the upcoming election since they heavily bias conservative in their voting. Exposing these young men and women as well as their families is a risk these depraved psychopaths running the show are willing to take.

      That’s never stopped the DNC. In every major national election in the last 20 years they’ve managed to negate much of votes cast by military personnel AND THEIR FAMILIES who are stationed overseas. Last election the Illinois DNC went to court to have military overseas votes negated due to the inability of the unit commanders and USPS overseas to jump through hoops. The USPS APO system overseas doesn’t postmark mail (some US POs don’t either, at least not visibly) so in previous national elections untold thousands of US ballots cast by overseas troops and their families were trashcanned as they were not ‘postmarked by the drop-dead date required by the law’ – that included ballots whose dates cast were certified by the signatures of US military commissioned officers whose signatures are, by Federal law, considered the equivalent of a notary’s signature/stamp.
      I guess our troops should just walk into a poll, say they are here illegally and have no ID, and demand a ballot.

  21. Could someone explain to me how hand washing will protect against this disease? According to our ‘experts’ you can catch ebola just by touching a surface where the virus is present. So then, you’re already exposed. What good will hand washing do?

    • John Galt says:

      My understanding is that touching surface and then touching face near mucous membranes of mouth and nose most likely to spread disease. In view of evidence of people catching disease while wearing protective gear it might already be airborne so hand washing not a guaranty against infection. Since US troops not wearing protective gear, I think they should have rules keeping Liberians away from them.

    Not to sound John Wayne-ish but that’s what we’re paid to do. If, at the end we are still alive and have paid our share, we get to go to college with a new GI Bill check every month – if the ‘welfare to work’ crowd employed at the VA don’t forget/screw it up/or get too wrapped up in ‘personal development’ classes to get it in the mail. BTW, much of that ‘welfare to work’ crowd can get free Federal grants to go to college as well as tons of miscellaneous $$$ on the side and they don’t have to serve their country. Small gripe there.

    This is an absolute nightmare. They are sending these men and women to die. Their presence there won’t fix anything. It will only cause more innocent americans to die. Everything about this is wrong. So wrong.

    I am so grateful to God that my husband finished his enlistment this year. His former division is being sent over. Absolutely terrifying, especially when so many military members have already been deployed so many times, to go over there with an even greater threat… I can’t imagine how scared their families must be. This needs to STOP. We need better leadership!!! We need a president who cares about AMERICANS. We need our country to follow God again.

    Praying for Nina Pham, and for these servicemembers and their families.
