Existential Threats?

Another brilliant comic from Tom Tomorrow. Isn’t it strange that we have to attack Syria, international law be damned?

The terrorists seem to have figured out a winning strategy for them. Do something outrageous that pisses off the American people (9/11, beheadings, even genocide) and then sit back while the American response becomes the best recruiting tool they could ever want, and paid for by the American taxpayers!

Heck, Republicans even told Obama that he should take the lead on this one. Who thought that would ever happen? Of course, they are mainly doing this so they can blame him for whatever goes wrong in the Middle East, completely ignoring the amazingly stupid things they did to screw it up. After all, they seem to think that Dubya kept us safe from the terrorists.

Likewise, Republicans are continuing to deny climate change. We’ve had 25 years to do something about this before it is too late, but … oops.

    As far as the terror threat goes, I’d like to talk about a more immediate threat and throw out for discussion the plan to send 3000 troops to help with the Ebola outbreak. From my point of view (as a Soldier and a combat medic) this is a terrible idea. There are highly trained doctors and other health professionals who have contracted the disease with the abundant use of personal protective equipment. Soldiers are not trained for this task and if they get the disease we’ll bring them right back home for treatment. The terror of ebola will be a 12 hr plane ride away. In combat they don’t have time to put on a suit to stop the bleeding. Even I’ve had to stick my unprotected hands on wound to save a life. Soldiers will act instinctively and this will put them all in danger. There has got o be a better way then sending our troops to this deadly area, or are they just seen as the most expendable. Bad things could happen, much worse then the threat of some terror group. Bin Laden couldn’t have dreamed of a better way to put us all in danger.
