The World Health Organization declared an international public health emergency Friday over the Ebola outbreak in western Africa that has killed almost 1,000 people.
The outbreak of the deadly virus is “extraordinary event” and a public health risk to other countries, it said.
(and as a total aside, this is a reboot of the war no matter how you slice it. The President said quote, “And so even as we support Iraqis as they take the fight to these terrorists, American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq,” which is contradictory in itself - what do you call the people flying those planes? We’re bombing ISIS fighters in Iraq but somehow aren’t returning to fight insurgents? I know Obama wants to own ending the Iraq war [aside again, he didn’t, merely enforced W’s 2008 status of forces agreement], but what do we call fighting an insurgency with US warplanes in Iraq if not ‘the Iraq war’?)
This is not what I sighed up for. I want to be completely uninvolved in Iraq - it’s just not our business.
